When I answer the phone, I hear nothing on the other end. When I return the call, a message says the number is no longer in service.

Frank, call the CEO of this company on his cell phone and complain. This company will not stop calling you until you complain to the person responsible for the calls - the CEO.

Some male with a Jamacan accent said a Michelle lived at my phone number and he was going to call my number everyday until her got her. Is he going to hurt her? Who is she?
I am a police officer and told him if he calls back I will tape his calls and do my best to prosocute him.

Received 2 calls on cell phone, no message left. Both calls were rather late in the evening. I don't believe we have any outstanding bills of any sort. Nothing in writing of any kind.

I have no faith that what they are calling about is legit. Thanks to the others on here, appears to be a scam.

If they continue to call, I will have the number blocked.

Document nuisance calls only, at www.fcc.gov, form 475. If you legitimately owe a business money, NRM has every right to call for that business, but cannot hang up with no communication, or refuse to refer you to supervisor,

Got Larry Smith's cell #, and talked to him. I'm really unsure that he knew that this was happening-seems like a nice enough guy. He owns a collection agency, so it's not illegal for his company to call, though it's probably bad for his business that, when I answer the phone when 210-581-5998 calls, there is a dial tone on the other end. These calls can be described as unsolicited nuisance calls, as there is no way to stop the calls from occurring, and it is officially a nuisance call if no-one is on the other end when your phone rings. If he has subcontracted some of his work, which is probable, legal action should be taken with the sub-contractor. As I said, I really am doubtful that he knew anything about this. It would now be incumbant upon him to reveal a way to contact said sub-contractor, though, lest legal action be directed his way. He has been apprised of this situation, which has been duly and correctly documented. It is now up to him to act on this information in a forthright manner, as this is the very definition of "nuisance phone calls", and might even be proven as harrassment under code 47USC227. Ya listening, Larry? In a court of law, one must prove that they first attempted to take mitigating action before bringing suit. Nobody's going to get rich here, is what I'm saying. Unless others have tried to mitigate the issue. Then, go for it, folks.

I filed a complaint with my local police dept. They will not investigate an out-of-state company. I set up call blocking on my phone. Now this company, NRM apparently, is using a different tactic. They continue to call, but from a number that shows up on caller ID as "unavailable", and cannot be blocked.

I have received numerous calls from this number about a month and a half ago. They are looking for the person who had my phone number before me. I spoke to a person who did have a accent and told them to take me out of their system. It has been about 2 week they have been calling again once per day and today I did get to talk to someone. I asked them what company they were calling from and they said NRM and they were calling about my past due ATT&T account. I asked the guy to speak to an supervisor and he told me to hold on and then he came back to the phone and said he was a supervisor. I asked him the address to his company and he said "why all the questions, do you want to pay on your account and asked if I was some other person, when I said I was not he said good bye and slammed down the phone. After investigating, I found that number must belong to a collection agency that is part of or belongs to Calvary Portfolio. I called them to tell them what was going on and the customer service lady was very rude. I am tired of these people as I am sure everyone else is, but I am not going to play this game. I have contacted the federal trade commision, my local telephone company, the San Antonio police department, my local police department. If these calls continue, I will sue these people.

rfa may be right about targeting Hispanics. I'm a natural born citizen and when I've answered the phone, they disconnect. When they reach the answering machine, they disconnect.

appears to be a fraudulent collection agency targeting Hispanics. Agents refuse to provide company name, reason for calling, and refuse to remove any number from their call lists.
