they also use the numbers 202-607-2748, 202-607-2731, 952-259-1101, also the number will appear on the caller ID as 011-860-3318050, 011-860-9673143, 011-860-3318050, 1-877-458-1070. the amazing thing about this company is that they call ask for someone else and then want you to ID yourself. They just called and asked (not disrespect intented) for a name theat sounded indian. However, I have an common english name that is HARD to misprounce, when I said there is no one here by that name I hung up. They called right back (before my hand was off the receiver) and asked for another name. They don't give upand I don't even know who they are looking for or what they want.

They start calling from different numbers around the 8am in the morning through 5pm in the evening. The man was looking for my Mom or my Dad. He had a funnny accent that I could'nt make out. When he asked about my dad I told him that, "My Dad passed away 2 Years Ago in October of 08" & I asked him to leave a message for my Mom & he said "That this was a personal stuff & tell you what it's about". And he was going after my mom's number at work I did'nt tell him, So I got rude & hung up the phone on him. This is a total invasion of privacy asking for someone's else work number. This Number is a scam.

About two months after getting a new cell phone I began to receive calls from this number and several others.Every number plays the same recording. Apparently this is a collection agency looking for the person who previously had my number. When I contacted AT&T I was told that they recycle their phone numbers. The number to be recycled is not used for a minimum of 24 months after a customer gives it up. So the fact that this company is calling a number that has been out of service for over 2 years, is using an automated recording (which is illegal), and does not state the name of the person they wish to speak to leads me to believe this is some form of criminal enterprise. My advice is do not provide any information whatsoever to these people (don't even answer the phone) I have begun filing complaints with the National Do Not Call Registry each time they call and suggest others do the same.

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

These people are RIDICULOUS - RELENTLESS!!! I'm experiencing the same thing all of you are as well. They start calling around 8:00am cst and go until around 8:00pm. Luckily, however, my home phone number is connected directly to my fax machine! LOL After 3 rings it automatically picks up. You would think after calling in excess of 3 months they would either send me a fax or give up! Nothing has changed nor will it. I too have no outstanding bills that I am being sent any mail for. I always use my cell phone number when I fill out any paperwork because I use my home number for fax purposes, so I assume they bought my number from someone. I would ask for my money back if I were them! LOL

Received call from this number. No message left on voice mail and caller ID did not way who it was. Anyone know? I have a non-published number so I'm always concerned when calls come in from people I don't know.

I usually don't answer calls from unknown answers, but since I'm on the jobhunt I don't want to miss any possibly important connections. When I've answered a couple calls over the last few weeks from this number (area code 202, prefixe 607, last 4 digits have varied), there is only a recording to "call BCR at (toll free #)". My number is on the DNC list, and I have no idea who these people are. I guess that someone I gave my information to sold it to someone else...I hate when they do that!

This number is BCR ... don't know what they want but they call from many numbers and fake their id! Look at 202-607-2748, and 202-607-2746

low life assholes! Hope they get arrested for scamming!

Every day at 8:00am the calls start. So far they have used the following numbers: 202-687-2749 , 202-607-2748 & 202-607-2744.
What do I do when I see their number? After one ring I connect and then hang up immediately. They are quite ignorant.

I have been getting calls from these people for about two weeks, three times a day, usually early in the morning. The #'s are 202-607-2749,2748, &2746. I am on the do not call list. They are really plucking my nerves. They should be stopped.

Thank You,
Sue

I am about to file a complaint with the FCC. You can download the form from their website. If everyone takes the time to do that, maybe, just maybe they can be stopped. I think the calls are automatically generated because they only ring four times if you don't answer. If you answer the phone, then someone responds. It is harassment--from the comments I am reading, they have no LEGITIMATE reason to call.

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 have been getting 2 calls a day from "BCR" in Washington DC, from 202-607-2748, -2749, & -2806, among other numbers. They are calling for people from whom I bought this house over 2 years ago, who apparently have dodged their debts! Apparently this company did a reverse look-up for the new phone number for this address, & they call here every day, even Sunday morning at 10:07 a.m.! I keep telling them the facts & to stop calling me but the calls keep coming. I am going to discontinue my telephone service & just stick to my cell phone from now on. This is distressing, especially since my husband has been sick with cancer for several months. Yes, I've told them that, too, but it doesn't seem to matter to them. What creepy people!!!

These idiots have started a habit of calling a cell phone that is in a police car. Justice can be grand sometimes!

When I answer the phone (they call from different numbers, some local-a 520 prefix) a recording tells me to 'please call (I can't understand what name they give, I thought it said DCR)' at an 800 number. They call every day. I have no bills so don't know why they would call here if they're bill collectors.

These damn people keep calling me. I have cursed them like 3 times (once by calling them and going off) They called me yesterday (SUNDAY) They call me from like 3 numbers too. It is so obnoxious. I have emailed the company and nobody responded. My # is on the do no call so I filed a complaint there. I am about to file harassment charges against them if this doesn't stop. When I asked them who they were looking for (finally) they said some person's name. Don't know or have ever known that name.

They have been calling my from three different phone numbers now: 1-800-831-7311, 202-607-2746, and 202-607-2748. Each time they don't leave a message and they have called at least 6 or 7 times. I just ignore the call and they never leave a message. Has anyone had any success with them stopping the calls?
