Apparently, These people have been at it for a long time, and have had MANY violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
Read the article below:
If you can suspend your bashing on our legally elected President for two minutes of non-hate, you might realize that if anyone is guilty of a false front it is this debt collector. Posing as any government agency is a serious violation of federal law, the FDCPA, which can get them sued by each victim of such a lie. Ditto for Andy's story of BCR trying to get a non-debtor to cover the bills of the long deceased.
Learn how to exercise your FDCPA rights as an alleged debtor at FTC-dot-gov. See also if your state laws are stronger.

It appears to be Acorn Calling and saying that it represents Medicare and that they need the person at this phone number to pay for medicare bills for some one who used to have this number. Its either ACORN working as a collection agency for Obama or medicare fraud authorized by Obama.
Caller ID is Unknown Name. Its in Washington DC. Bureau of Collection Recovery Inc., 7575 Corporate Way, Eden Prairie, Minnesota 55344 These are pond scum debt collectors for AT&T. They will not clear your debt or even care if they are seeking the former owner of the phone number. In my case they wanted me (not a negro) to pay for the funeral of a negro minister (250-07-4832) who died in 2000 per social security death list. Seems that his negro felon son (229-96-7687) (who died in 2003 per social security death list) was too cheap to pay for his Dad's funeral. I suggested that they go dig the ole boy up, dump his ass out on the ground and repossess the casket to settle the debt since he is not my kin. Actual debt holder probably is his wife or other felon son who has a social security number that ends in 0081 and still resides at 3138 Truxton Road, Augusta Georgia 30906.
This is a credit agency - BCR. I've been told they are nasty, nasty people! Don't take their calls & DON'T send them money!!!!

Wandering, who paing to this persons for such bad job and phon service and why?
This call comes through this number as well as other numbers. Clearly, they are a debt collection agency. The only problem is, it is not us, and it is really annoying. And it doesn't matter, they just keep calling and calling. It's unbelievable and I don't know how to stop them. I tried to be nice and explain it is not us, but instead, they think I'm evading a bill!!!!

I don't even know who they are looking for but these people won't stop calling. They call at 8:00a on Sat and Sun. They have no shame.

THIS FREAKING PEOPLE HAVE BEEN DOUNG THIS SENCE 2008!!! NEXT TIME THEY CALL I AM GNNA BE SO RUDE TO THEM!!! AND YOU ALL SHPOULD BE TOO THEY MUYST USE A ACCENT
It seems (by the calls I've gotten) to be one of those companies who buys "zombie debt" and tries to collect on it (zombie debt is extinct debt that has often been sold to such entities at pennies on the dollar and usually has ALREADY been written-off the taxes of the original holder). They call themselves "Bureau of Collection Services" or BCS. They also call from a D.C number of 202-607-2733
(or similar). The Federal Trade Commission says it is illegal for them to try and collect a debt that is more than 4 years old (see FTC.gov). Hope that helps. PS - CA residents can file suit for free for them breaking the rules... just look for one of the many CA law firms that specialize in going after unscrupulous collectors.
This caller is the same one I've seen referenced in Google when you list the number -- they call every morning and leave a callback number; 888-276-2733
, or one time 202-607-2733
, and sometime none at all.
around 7 pm this number called. I don't answer my phone anymore when I do not know the number, so f. them
from Bowie MD Nov 10th, 2008
sick n tired of this a**holes ,please how to i stop them ruining my evenings and weekends
these people always fine another number to call from there are now hiring people to use their personal numbers to call your homes. Someone before me had this number registered to them, this is what I am doing: Change my phone services so that there are no messages services : keep caller I.D.. The law will take care those that call your joband lastly "lets see how many stamps the pay for to harrass one.
Caller does not leave message or identify self.
they have everyone on that ,ROBO CALLING SERVICES, they were talking about that issue in congress?
With the price of everything today going up I have no money to live on so let them call not long the phone will be off and they will not be able to call maybe they will get the message that the country is broke so charge it off and be done with it because I am.
keep calling May 30th, 2008
They have called me twice last week and 3 times this alone! What do I need to do these folks are crazy!
Here is their website. Send them a complaint Email www.bureauofcollection.com/
Use address below to ask them not to call again and be sure to register the letter and keep a copy. If they call back after that you may be able to file a complaint and actually collect money from them!!! Look up consumer rights about debt collection on Google. Or go th this website http://www.fugatelaw.com/news.asp?nID=6

Who are these people??? They keep calling about a bill I paid! Called them back and asked who they were and was told BCR that's all I'm going to tell you and hung up. They have called an enormous amount of times and hang up on me! Is this harassment or is this legal?

THE CALLS ARE NON-STOP WEEKENDS INCLUDED. BCR MUST BE STOPPED!!!
Bill collector attempted to collect money from my deceased relative. BCR 866-364-9836
don't know who this is but i hung up
I received a call regarding an account of my husband (soon to be ex-husband), a cancelled T-Mobile account. I told them that we are seperated and he is currently incarcerated for the next 2 years. The rep. insisted that I will be with him when he gets out (like she's a psychic or something). I told her that MY name is not on the account and I'm not paying the bill since we are no longer together. She argued with me telling me that I'm a triphling bitch and still need to pay the bill and told me to get a job (which I'm sure after speaking to her, I have a better job than what she has). She hung up on me after telling me she'll be calling back tomorrow. I called back for a manager, which hung up on me. So I called again and spoke to someone more professional and "supposed" to have finally removed my number.
Just moved to AZ and as soon as we hooked up our phone service, we've been receiving 1-2 calls per day from BCR with phone numbers being 202-607-2732
and "2733". The phone number they ask you to call is 1-888-276-8209
. Don't know why they're calling us and wish they would stop. It's awful...also been called by other companies looking for the same person. What's scary is we asked for our number to be unpublished and unlisted...so, how do people get it? Does anyone know if it would be worth it to ask the telephone company for a new phone number...preferably one that nobody else has had in the past?
This foreign group of freaks calls me twice a day every day....but not for long! The next time I see BCR on my caller ID, I will get my clarinet and play the loudest, longest, most shrill and annoying E flat I can manage! HAPPY HEARING BCR!!
This is my first call from these clowns. Message says call BCR. I've never seen a my caller ID say two numbers. Cool.
Call the 800 no and ask for there mailing addrest and they hang up maybe I need to do that several times a day ever day do think that would bug them hope so

I received a call today from this number to my cell phone. And my cell is prepaid so why would they call me. I did not answer and do not plan to, obviously this is ignorance in action.
I receive 2-3 calls a day
They ask for Marisol Castillo. No one by that name resides in my home. Informed Supervisor and was told they would not call again. Yet it has been ongoing for 3 mos.
other lines they call are:
same people Pain in the ASS
This "company" has called my phone number several times during the AM hours asking for "Dale"...when I tell the "wrong number" they ask if I know Dale and repeat my phone number back to me to verify the call. I have told them SEVERAL times that they have the wrong number and to STOP calling my house. This is it....now it's going to get ugly and LEGAL. I'm on a mission and I'm going to win! They're going to regret calling me.
I have a new tracfone # Been recieveng calls from 202-607-2733 continuosly, several times a day. Answered once they asre asking for OMAR MOHAMMED, told them wrong number and she tried to just keep going on. This uses minutes I paid for! Is this a collection agency ? I owe NO ONE. All bills paid on time!
Another # calling is .800-831-7311
. How do you stop this ???
I had a collection agency trying to collect on emergency room visit covered by my hmo, the hospital part of my network. They requested and I paid copay which means they accept services agreed in hmo contract. Eight months later the ER physician is billing me $300.00. Even though hospital was paid less then two weeks after treatment. I challenged claim with all reciepts showing treatment covered, copay, hmo paid for services. NCO financial responds with bogus verfication of debt showing no copayment, no insurance,but best of all for a debt that was like seven dollars more then original debt they claim to have purchased in initial letter I recieved. Sent all correspondence to Attorney General for state of California who requested them to respond to my complaint. Needless to say they replied that they had closed my account and were no longer pursuing my claim.
about two years later started recieving calls from BCR but only like four in maybe year and a half.
I hope this information can help connect dots of similar situation or NCO fanancial connection.
They DO call more times than is allowable by law. There are several numbers they use thinking that they can get away with this harrassment! Another number I know of that's there's is :866-364-9836
An especially agressive collection agency that seems to use a tactic of wearing people down, even thought they have no teeth to do harm to anyone

Tried to call back and hung up on me.
Called them back and told them AGAIN, I'm NOT George Hernandez, they told me they would remove the number, yea, right! These guys are relentless, every day calling. It needs to stop, they can easily look this number up and see it's not registered to Mr. Hernandez.
They are people representing a collection agency and they also try to trick you by calling from 202-607-2732
and 2733. They call like 4 or 5 times daily, idiots!
I've documented since March 5th that someone with a non-English accent has been calling from this number representing an agency called BCR or PCR or something. Oh my God, they're calling now as I'm typing! They also call from 202-607-2731
and 2732. Idiots! They call at least 3xs a day, if not more. I'm filing a police report for harrassment and then sending them a certified letter to the company that they represent.
PEOPLE, IT'S NOT A SCAM. IT'S A COLLECTION AGENCY! ITS POSSIBLE THEY HAVE THE WRONG NUMBER. THE ONLY WAY TO GET THEM TO STOP IS TO SEND THEM A CEASE & DESIST LETTER. CALL THE 800 NUMBER BACK, ASK FOR THE MAILING ADDRESS FOR A CEASE & DESIST, AND THEN WRITE IT UP (INCLUDE YOUR PHONE NUMBER) AND MAIL IT IN CERTIFIED. PAIN IN THE ASS, BUT THEY WILL ONLY STOP IF IT'S IN WRITING.

Have been getting calls from this number for days... Caller ID said BCR at 1-888-276-8209
& 1-202-607-2733. Finally answered it today, person with very heavily "English is my second language" accent asked me for a "J.W.". Told her she had the wrong number. She asked if she had dialed the right number and repeated mine; I told her yes, she had dialed that number but no one was here by the name she was asking for. She then asked me again if I knew "J.W."... I repeated the name and again told her NO, she started to ask me more questions and I hung up on her... No clue who, what where these people are (accept, of course, the 202 gives us a clue...) Irksome....
Called my cel # at 6:00 PM.
Don't know who it is.
Received a call and it was an automated message to call BCR at an 888 number. Didn't write it down.
I received a call today. nothing but a messae to call BCR at this number.
