A woman speaks and says "Hello! This is Carol thanks for calling back" and if you don't answer her she says "Hello. Are you there?" Then call is ended. If you call back then it plays wait music and just 2-5 seconds transfers you. Then "Carol" answers the phone in a super robotic voice says "Hello, are you there? 520-210-3618

FROM ME:

Where else are they getting information about you? From those surveys that claim to reward you a “free” laptop or some other “free” doodad that'll end up costing you more money in the long run because of the crappy quality of the “free” whatever. You don't even have to finish the survey to give these bastards what they want – the teeniest bit of information about you. If you don't want the calls, don't fill out the surveys. It's as simple as that. I keep saying that there're “free lunches” anymore.

So you say that you put your name on the national DO NOT CALL LIST. Well, bully for you! That would take care of about 2% of your harassment calls, if that. These bastards who keep calling, though, don't play by ANY rules except their own. The best thing to do is for YOU to be vigilant about who calls you and make use of your phone company's BLOCKED CALLER LIST. You may complain about it being an extra expense you can't afford. Well, that's up to you. If you don't block them in some way, then you deserve to get those harassing calls. Don't sit back and depend on a national DO NOT CALL LIST to end those calls. If your phone company doesn't offer a BLOCKED CALLER LIST, find one who does. I think it's a small price to pay for not hearing about some new way to separate me from my money or lower my credit score.

If you're one of those people who feels they have to answer every single phone call, train yourself not to. You won't hurt a telemarketer's feelings by not answering, trust me. THESE BASTARDS DON'T HAVE FEELINGS. They don't care if you're a soccer mom hauling around a van load of kids or CEO of your company. They just want your money or information about you and they'll do whatever to get it. Not every phone call is so earth shatteringly important that you have to answer it!

Lastly, my question is why post a message to those bastards here that says, “Stop calling me!”? That does absolutely no good whatsoever. Are you people really THAT naïve to think posting a message to stop calling you is going to end the harassing phone calls? Think about it.

I have been receiving "unknown caller" calls for the past couple of months.. when I answer, no one is here. Now, starting today, I have been receiving calls from 201-210-3618. The calls started around 5 pm.. and we received 2 calls within 2 minutes, My daughter had answered the phone. When she said I was not at home (which I wasn't) he was extremly rude to her, saying he knew I was there and I had better talk to him!

Tonight at 7:00 the same man (with an East Indian accent) called. He left a message and proceeded to call me 3 times within 5 minutes leaving a nasty message each time. He stated that he knew I was listening to him and that avoiding the call would do no good. He then called back and said that he had spoken to my neighbors and gave me the names of my neighbors!

What can I do to stop this harrassment other than unplug my phone?

(201)210-3618 calls my house repeatedly.
Forever they just left a recorded message, and even if I answered, I got the message. Today they called, but I answered ana human, yes, with a foreign accent, answered and asked for somebody who doesn't live here.
When I said so, he started with an address that wasn't mine, so I told him to stop calling. About an hour later, they called back, and the same person, or a very similar accent, asked for the same name again.
I gave him a piece of my mind and hung up.
You know, if the government can tap phone calls, can't they do something about garbage like this???

Finally, after 23 days of telephone calls I find out who is behind these calls and where they are located here in the USA. It is a company known as Aegis Receivables Management Inc (but they still hide behind a PO Box. Their mailing address is PO Box 3458 San Rafael, CA 94912-3458 ---- 1-800-265-2769. They are but one of several (13 so far) that are operating under "Sherman Companies", which is operating under several names in several states. (copy and paste this link to a webpage that discusses them in full -- http://householdwatch.com/logic/aboutdebt.php)

Their letterhead clearly states that they were formerly known as Global Vantedge Inc. (a company in India that "specializes" in harassing phone calls (from 201-210-3618) with their broken English-speaking employees. They think they are exempt from the Fair Credit laws of the USA but if you call or write the Sect. of State, Department of Corporations, for the state of New Jersey, they can act on your complaint...201-210-3618 is a telephone that the company is linked to in Newark, NJ.

Until such time that stop calling to collect a bill from a person that does not live in my home I will keep my trusty whistle right next to the phone. I was using a gas operated boat safety Air-horn but I ran out of the small Freon cans (auto A/C gas) used to power it

These creeps call every day. They use different numbers, but always leave the exact same message on my machine. That's how I know it's the same people. It's a woman with an Indian accent...she says "Hello, we are trying to reach you today. It's important you return our call. Our toll free number is 866-265-7685." They also use the number 201-210-3618, but it shows up on caller ID as unavailable. The 703-547-6545 number does show up as TATA COMM on my caller ID.

These bas****s are a collection agency who must use Zillow or Google earth to find out who the nearest neighbor to their target is. They have called me twice about a neighbor and refused to give out private information and hung up.
Creepy, crafty collecton agencies for pennies on pennies on the dollar.

They have called 4 -5 times a day. Finally, I answered and asked that they do not call again. They were very rude!

Global Vantedge. Man has an indian accent and will terrorize people into paying old debts. Uses tactics that are illegal. Calls 3rd parties,neighbors, relatives, anyone with the same last name and harrasses them as well. I have been informed they believe no one will ever challange them and completely disregard the consumer rights laws protecting consumers from unscrupulous Credit Collectors. Tape everythng, save all phone messages, use them all against this creep when you sue. He is a bottom feeder and scum. I've been reading some of the comments left from others, but there is nothing in detail. He calls from 201-210-3618 and leaves a message to call 866-265-2769. He will stop at nothing to demean and terrorize you because he believes you don't know your rights. WHAT HE IS DOING IS ILLEGAL and you do not have to put up with it regardless of whether you owe the debt or not, he is still bound by law to treat you with decency. Don't let him get away with it. Find an NACA attorney in your area (naca.net) and fight back! Don't let scum like this get away with he's doing to good people.

A guy with an indian accent and a pushy attitude called and asked for 2 of my friends, he had a heavy indian accent and gave his name as Jimmy Adam (???). I told him I can get the message to them, he wanted their phone numbers (???) which I did not give him and he did not like that, and when I asked him where he go my number from, he said that my friends gave it to him which I know is a lie. but he left a message with the phone number 800-363-4816 x 5110, and a business file #.
Caller ID on my phone: 201-210-3618 Name ID: unavailable
Caller: Global Vantedge (I looked up their phone number online)

This is some mutt based organization that will not answer questions when we called to find out who they were and why they were calling our business 15 time a day and hanging up. NO ANSWERS!... They are listed on the Rip Off Report, and appear to be some low life collection agency faking to be investment people.

Google the companion telephone number 201-210-3618. According to those subbmissions this company has called and asked to speak to children by name and inquired about neighbors. Their description of my brother-in-law's case, although scant, seems uncredible.

I tried to call this mysterious number 210-201-3618)from my work phone because I did not want them to see my name. I actually used four different number that are available from my phone. I am sure they could see the organisation's name. I heard a nice greeting saying it was Global Vintedge. It a second a man with Indian accent picked up the phone. He said My name is ... (missed his first name) Dawson. How can I help you ? I did not say a word but waited until he hung up. I did it with all four numbers. Then in an hour I repeated this procedure but this time I could not reach them ! I got a message " Your call cannot be completed as dialed" !
I bet they blocked my number because they did not like that someone was bothering them :) At least I bothered them for a few moments !

I get more than 3 calls a day early around probably 10am to 4pm (Alaska time) every day from this number on my cell phone. Ever since we connected a house phone we get nothing but hang up calls during this time as well. It has been driving us crazy because my husband works the graveyard shift and is asleep from 8am-4pm. We do not have caller ID on the house but we do on our cell phone. So far we get several in a row. The first one shows the 201-210-3618 number. Then they call again (one right after the other all day) next it shows id unavailable then unkown number and it just goes on. Everyone states it is a collection agency for unkown debts. We have a Capitol One credit card in both our names. We have no debt... barely any credit being only 20 and 21 years old and newly married. If anyone knows how they get our numbers (especially when we are on the national do not call list) it'd be great info to list online for the others being called.

Global Vantage

Reported them to the FTC, I suggest you do the same, takes 5 minutes!
1-877-FTC-HELP

They also told me to send a CERTIFIED LETTER to the company like in the post message by CMS second link.

They can call one more time and then they have to stop!!!

update ... I use cash almost 100%, even to buy my house, have never had a bad debt or collection, so I can reassure all of you that if you think they're calling you about a debt, it's just a coincidence.
Also, they must be using illegal "spoofing" to put that 201-210-3618 number on your callerID, because an automated dialer, working through a single outgoing line ID couldn't complete enough calls to generate all the complaints we see online.
I will try to get it blocked by the phone co. and see what happens.

Global Vantage is Asset Acceptance LLC, ref 210-210-3618. 'Both' are holders of beyond stautes of limitations charge-offs that credit cards companies sell to debt collectors. As far as I can find out, unless the collector bought the debit from the credit card company or another debt collector all w/in two years of the disputed debt, they're SOL because of the SOL. They seem to be counting on the nuisance calls forcing you to pay that debt regardless that they have no lawful means to collect. Either buy the $99 call blocker or go to using VoIP and block them for free.

I had a few phone calls from 201-210-3618, and from 866-265-7685. I sent a complaint form to the Florida Dont Call Dept, and just received a letter from them forwarded from Global Vantedge. While as a collection agency they are exempt from the do not call law, however my complaint was due to the number of calls despite the fact I told them they had the wrong number. So if this helps, I have all the info from Global Vantedge's letterhead: 851 Irwin Street, Suite 304, San Rafael, CA 94901-3343; Tel 415-925-2777; fax 415-925-1706; 800-727-3593 is another listed number for them.

There were 3 calls on my caller ID when I got home last night all were from 201-210-3618 the ID also indicated Ferraro Foods as the caller.

Just out of curiosity I googled Ferraro Foods and could find no number even close to 201 210-3618. I then googled the number and got to this page. I won't return the call but I may call Ferraro Foods to let them know that their name is being used (illegally?).

I have been called repeatedly over the past week from number 201-210-3618 wanting to speak to a woman with the same last name as mine. I told them I was on the do not call list and to stop calling - on the last call, I demanded the name and compamy of the caller - "Roger Smith" of Global Vantage... I told him I was going to report them - he got very flustered and said he would have me removed from their list! Is there any place we can report these people for sanctions!?

This sounds a lot like the standard scam from India. They also call from 201-210-3618 and 888-341-6575. Allegedly this is a collection agency, except that these people don't engage in such legalities as identifying their company, or telling people the details of what they owe. Basically they're phishers. Just ignore their calls, and DO NOT give them any personal information.

201-210-3618 has been calling several times a day for about a month. A 411 reverse phone lookup comes up with a "land line based in New Jersey."

The call routine goes as follows:

There is a message from a man with a "rounded english/indian sounding voice", and the music to "A Bridge over Troubled Water" playing in the background. The man asked I wait for a representative to connect to me...then, someone, usually a woman with a nasally tone or in what sounds like slightly foreign voice, comes on repeatedly saying , "Hello, hello?" Then they hang up - no message beyond that.

I've never returned the call but I think I will go to a payphone in another city and call them so, they can't trace who is calling them to find out why they call and for what reason.
