got this call today & while reporting here, I read Amos' report. Sorry but I had to giggle at the absurdity! ((in no way shape or form am I in any bias, group, sect nor denomination. Seems that I am not the only person---now what in 'Gods' name does AT&T have to do with trying to get US to pay for ANY funeral, minister or not? White, black, pink, green--? Way2go Amos, lol at the 'dig the ole boy up'--& what constitutes having a # in WDC w/addy in Minnesota, eh? (lol) Also I question--how did the ssn's come into play? The fact of jail or legal stature? was that just good PI work, Amos? I have to A S S ume so!! Thank you for being here!!

Caller ID is BCR 800-831-7311. Its a landline in Washington DC. Bureau of Collection Recovery Inc., 7575 Corporate Way, Eden Prairie, Minnesota 55344. These are AT&T's pond scum debt collectors. They will not clear your debt. They don't 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 Edith (his wife) or Gregory (other felon son). She still resides at 3138 Truxton Road, Augusta Georgia 30906 (he's in the pen). One of them has a social security number that ends in 0081.

A legitimate business would state their name, the person they wish to speak to, and their reason for calling.
To file a complaint with the National Do Not Call Registry- 1.You may file a complaint if you received an unwanted call after your number was on the National Registry for 31 days. 2.You may also file a complaint if you received a call that used a recorded message instead of a live person (whether or not your number was on the Registry).
Federal Communications Commission regulations prohibit telemarketers from using automated dialers to call cell phone numbers.
Each time they have called I filed a complaint with the National Do Not Call Registry.

The numbers BCR has used to call me- 202-607-2746, 202-607-2748, 202-607-2806, 800-294-7691, 858-201-6747

Threatening and mean spirited call. Odd part is we are current on any debt we have and have never missed a payment - it has us concerned that someone is using our name or something - they won't say what the debt is for, very strange. Have used 202-607-2746 as well.

Thank You,

They have been calling religiously at 9am, 12pm and 2pm every single day for quite some time, and every single day, I tell them that there is no person here by that name and to remove us. I've tried explaining that they're wasting their time and money continuing to call and it's just making me more and more angry. A few times have been a bit more harsh...yet, they still continue to call.

I looked up their information and Bureau of Collection Recovery is headquartered in Minnesota. http://www.bureauofcollection.com/. Here, I found all of their contact information....I emailed everyone on their list and called to explain it to them. They assured me they have removed our number from the person's account, so we'll see...

NUMEROUS CALLS from this number. These people are driving me nuts with so many calls on a very regular basis. They never leave a message on my machine, and when I do pick up the phone when they call, I request to not be called again, but that doesnt even work apparently because I keep recieving calls from this number quite frequently. I think other numbers are tied to them also, because on several occasions the same person has called ( very heavy Middle Eastern accent) but the number is different.

I don't think this is a legitimate "collection" agency. They call me daily at least 2 times a day. I don't owe anyone anything, and I only get the calls on my prepaid cell phone. I think they have automatic dialers that just dial numbers in succession until they get a hold of someone. I am sick of it. I also get calls from 202-607-2748 among others.

I actually know what they are calling about.I am in negotiations aobut the subject. I have lawyers, and others looking into it. I think this is for AT & T, which was at one time Cingular, who I have issues with. I have told this company, who are extremely rude, that I have paid what I owe. They call, and then, as soon as I tell them I paid my bill,they hang up on me. Half the time I cannot udnerstand them. They speak broken English. I do have call blocker, which helps, while my case is looked into. They ask for my husband,I tell them I am not married.At one point they insisted I was.

This company has been harrassing us for several months now calling every 2 hours every day. Calling my childrens cell phone number. AT & T wireless gave them our number and now they wont stop even though we do not owe AT & T a penny. Now AT&T is all apologetic but BCR will not stop. Its crazy. I will be writing them a letter to have them cease and desist but I doubt that will do any good. They are extremely rude and unprofessional. Beware of AT&T I hold them 100% responsible for this.

I have NO past due accounts- none! When I did answer some time back, it was for another person (guess it was whoever had this cell phone before) but they are continuing to call 3/4 times daily. Also believe 202-607-2806 and 607-2749 is either the same company or same kind of company. So between the three of them, I'm getting 6 to 10 calls a day. It would be a different matter if I had any out-standing past due bills but I don't so I find this very irratating.

This company ( BCR ) calls me about 20 times a day- as early as 7 am till 10 pm. ( normally the people on the other line have a thick Indian accent ) They keep pressing for payment on account I do not have and do not believe I owe. I asked for them to send me a paper bill in the mail to explain and was quickly shot down and yelled at to give them my banking account info - I said NO... I reported them to phone company and try to block- but they call from differing numbers and hard to block all of them.

I have my telephone number for 6 weeks now and from the 3rd day I was given this number, on, these people of BCR have been calling me daily looking for a person I have never heard of. I kept explaining them, that I have just been given this number and that I do not know the person they are looking for. Unfortunately they do not care, because they keep on calling me. I had three people sofar. 2 women and more often a man with an indian accent. Either the Caller ID says BCR or Dist. of Columbia and the numbers vary from 1 888-714-2338 / 1 202-607-2749 / 1 202-607-2806

They call at least once every two days. This has been going on for months. I have told two other reps (All Indian accents.) that the person they are looking for no longer has this phone number and hasn't for over 8 months. Today they called me at 8:15 am and woke me up looking for someone who used to have my phone number before it was switched. Several collection agencies have called for "Andrew" and I've had to go through explaining how a number gets switched over when someone shuts it off. I then said to remove the number from his list. He stated "I'll make a note of it." I said "No, per the do not call list remove my number." He spoke over me and said once again "I said I'll make a note of that." and hung up when I repeated again to confirm that he removed the number from his list. - I had to call back to BCR twice to get a hold of someone. The man was very professional and pulled up the number in the system (that I had already explained to the first guy who called to remove) and we went over the details again. I explained I was calling to verify as the other BCR rep was essentially rude. - The rep I spoke with stated that he removed the number. - I hope he did as we will now wait and see. If I get another slew of calls from them, I'm reporting it along with sending a cease and desist letter.

This sounds like the same collection agency that's at 202-607-2749. They called for somebody who used to live at my address but never had my phone number. They've been calling about once/week, and until today I politely informed them that the person they're calling does not live here. I called the number back, explained the situation to Gary, and he said he would remove my number from their system so I don't get any more calls.
