Keep calling and calling. One Sunday, I was home, so I picked up; but a recording said to call back another time! Incredibly annoying. Thankfully, someone on this blog said to call the number and ask them to stop calling you. I'm certain they have the wrong number. I hope it works!

Where do I report a debt collector for an alleged violation?
Report any problems you have with a debt collector to your state Attorney General’s office (www.naag.org) and the Federal Trade Commission (www.ftc.gov). Many states have their own debt collection laws that are different from the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Your Attorney General’s office can help you determine your rights under your state’s law.

For More Information
To learn more about debt collection and other credit-related issues, visit www.ftc.gov/credit and MyMoney.gov, the U.S. government’s portal to financial education.

The FTC works for the consumer to prevent fraudulent, deceptive, and unfair business practices in the marketplace and to provide information to help consumers spot, stop, and avoid them. To file a complaint or to get free information on consumer issues, visit ftc.gov or call toll-free, 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357); TTY: 1-866-653-4261. The FTC enters consumer complaints into the Consumer Sentinel Network, a secure online database and investigative tool used by hundreds of civil and criminal law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and abroad.

This is an unscrupulous, relentless collection agency that works primariy for UCONN HOSPITAL, among others. They have automated dialers, that will harass you on Sundays and any other time they have programmed. They leave a number for you to call but chances are, nobody will be there. Try to block the number if you can or call the state attorney's office or consumer protection, and even the Banking Commissioner. They are breaking laws and harassing people with their tactics. My daughter owes them a copay for a hospital visit and hasn't lived here in three years but they still feel the need to harass us. Maybe you can even forward the call into the time and temperature phone number.

They're a collections agency based out of Waterbury, CT. see their website at http://www.americanadjustmentbureau.com

My wife owes our local hospital (part of the ECHN network) $150 because she had an ER visit last summer and we couldn't afford the insurance co-pay at the time (and we still can't -- she's currently out of work)

They put her in collection and these schmucks call over and over again, a few times a day, leaving the same recorded message each time. Very annoying. You'd think they take the hint!
