hey kevin you need to get your information correct the company has offices in various countrys including the u.s.a and its a registered company dealing in debt collections http://www.intelenetglobal.com
This number kept calling my minor son's cell phone. I called it back. They are looking for some woman named "Norma Erende?" I told them that the phone belongs to a minor (it's a pay as you go cell phone) and that no one by that name is at this number. They said they would delete the number from their system. They are Intellinet Global Services.
A Mr. Clint Murzello with a heavy India Accent states he is with Intelinet Global Services Ltd. I asked for an address for his company, he gave 35A Rust Lane, Bourne TX 78006. When asked what is the NY address, he refused to give that. He claims he is attempting to collect a debt for an outstanding account with SBC. In checking on the company name, there is a case of fraud pending per BBC News on a company with same name based in India. They used peoples information to obtain or rip off credit cards. Beware and don't give any financial or personal information.
Wow calls have increased to 4 times a day, still filing a complaint every time they call to Do Not Call website...how long does it take to get action on them??? Been reporting it for at least 4-5 months now.
Has called 8 times today so far.
called three times today, starting at 8 am. Won't leave a message. Won't provide info for me to feel secure enough to give my info to them.
Wow!! Calls 5+ times per day. I have them blocked as in phone will not ring nor can they leave voice mail. I find out by veiwing my call logs. By reading comments here. Good thing I have them blocked.
I get the calls about twice a day for the last 4 months or so...I also file a comlaint on the Do Not Call website everytime they call, everyday, but nothing has changed. So sometimes I just have fun with it like it when I'm in my car I have a really loud stereo system and I answer and hold the phone right next to the speakers, it makes me smile at least.
inpelnen global services--this is what i heard when i called them
This is Intellinet Global Services Limited. I asked what kind of company that was. I got some sort of garbage explanation that insulted anyone's intelligence and meant absolutely nothing. I asked again what kind of company, and eventually got a real explanation that it was prohibited by law for him to tell me. I said that they must be a debt collection agency; he said "correct". I am grateful to the honesty I finally got, and was much more cooperative. They were looking for someone with a name that is traditionally used in another nation. I explained this, and that the person was not here. I recommend anyone to verify it is a debt collection agency, and know there is a huge chance they are not looking for you, but someone you'd never heard of. Don't know if this co has integrity, but I do know people who owe debts need to be tracked down and the money paid to it's rightful owner. Incurring debt, spending someone/thing else's money, and not paying it back is taking someone elses money, leaving that other party in a great deal of hurt, and adversely affecting our national economy, raising prices across all sectors, and affecting every financially responsible citizen. Although I can't vouch for this caller, I do appreciate legitamate debt collection agencies, who are able to return money to the lenders, all of whom really need their rightful money. I do not mind calls from those types of entities that explain who they are, and are attempting to rectify situations in which one party has taken money from another party and desperately needs to pay back this money.
The person with English accent asked for Jeremy Dwayne Robinson, who I have never heard of, and who could not have had this number in the last five years. We are also on the do-not-call list.
They have been calling me a least twice a day for weeks. I finally took the call and demanded that they tell me who they are calling to speak with, They gave me some woman's name I have never heard of. I have had my number for years. This company is not legit
Caller had a heavy accent and could hardly make out what the call was about. Gave me a name he was looking for that I did not recognize.
We've received numerous calls - one day alone I counted 15 on my caller ID! Same story as others - person with Indian accent claiming to be collecting on old debt. Outrageous.
I was doing some research online and found others that have received similar calls from various numbers, including 212-377-0182, 866-241-2519
, as well as 212-377-0368
. Several people claim that a collections lawyer named Michael Suffness in the Dallas area is responsible for outsourcing these bogus old collections to Intelinet Global Services Ltd. in India. This is the information that was listed, as well as his website address with his picture:
Michael B. Suffness
Compass Bank Building
5201 W. Park Boulevard, Suite 100
Plano, TX 75093
Sounds like fraud, first call today
If you want to see a photo of the lawyer who is behind the phone calls from (212-377-0368), go to www.lawyers.com When you get to the web site, there will be a folder with the heading FIND A LAWYER. Type in Michael B Suffness and TEXAS under the listing for states. You will come to a web site with listing of his sites. On the right there will be a radio button VIEW WEB SITE. Click on that and a photo of him and info will pop up. Good Luck.

I tried directory assistance to get his home phone number so I could call him there unfortunately, it's unlisted and unpublished. So, be sure to contact him at the addresses, e-mail & phone numbers listed above...join the fun!
I have received numerous calls from this number. After reading this website, I decided to answer the call. Of course they were looking for someone else. I told them to remove the number because no one by that name lived here. Not 10 minutes later they called again. Same thing. Again later in the day, but with a different NY number-646-383-1474
. That was Tuesday. Today, they called again. This time I yelled at them. Told them they were very annoying.
I suggest that everyone file a complaint with the Do Not Call Registry at www.donotcall.gov
They are a collection call center located in India. They do calls for Asset Acceptance.
I get call from this number twice a day. Anoying!
global intelnet services,trying to collect a debt from 25 ,yes 25 years ago!!! $80.00 dollars Calls started 2 mths. ago, they atleast once a day. i don't even answer it when i see that number anymore because if i do i just end up screaming at the person. i had told them that they can call me 'till the cow's come home i'm not paying them one friggin' penny.
I called from another number so they could not ID me. Where is the "DO NOT CALL" protection. I knew it was a scam. Got the company name after trying 3 times. They were very rude each time. They have called me 2-3 times a day for 2 months. It has to stop.
collection agency from old debt...10 years old.
They say I owe SBC money from 2003. They say they mailed me a letter on 7/29/07. Never got it. I've never been billed for something this old before. They insisted on a check by phone 2 times during our conversation. I asked them to give me their mailing address. The address they gave was Intelenet Global Services, Dept. C H 17408, Palatine, IL 60055-7408.
The Indian accented person was nice and cordial. Not rude at all. Almost convinced me that I actually owed the money! ha! I don't have a debt that is 4 years old. Especially one from "South Bell Corp", as he called it. (Said it was also SBC.) I've taken the proper steps for the phone calls to stop.
To a little balance all the comments-I owe lots of people money. If I owe this particular company I would guess they'd leave a message or at least say something.
I've been receiving 1-2 calls a day from these people for about a month. They say that they've mailed a letter but I never received anything. After reading that they've said the same thing to others, I now believe this is a lie. I don't owe this money and they are just harassing me to give it to them. They need to be stopped.
SICK OF THESE CALLS
These creatures have absolutely no reason to call me-On Aug.25, 2007-I called the number left on my caller ID, spoke to Victor. I said I was returning their call and would like to be removed from their lis. He asked for my phone # which I STUPIDLY gave him-he said there was no record of my # and they could not have possibly have called me-I replied this is redial-from my caller ID-he said possibly my records have already been removed- I have never even spoken to the people before-so how could ANY records even exist?
I finally paid those jerks $65.00. I was getting up to 8 calls a day. They said it was on an account from 6 years ago. If they never call back again it was worth the $65.00!!
I like to call this number866-241-2519
) and ask Michael how the Federal Trade Commission investigation is going. You know.....have they contacted him yet or what. The number of the complaint is 11124203, the phone for the FTC is 877-382-4357
. Please call them and complain.
I also ask how the weather is in Waco and generally inquire into how he is doing. Anything to tie up his line so he won't call YOU!
Call him he's a pleasant guy. Do not break the law by screaming or cursing at him.....just call the number several times every day until he shuts down.
HAVE A NICE DAY.....and thank you Michael, you've given my life meaning again. PS- be nice to the woman in India....she's only the phone answering drone.
Many Calls for no apparent reason.
i got a call from this number, they said i had an account from charter one and that owed them money. i checked my credit report and it aint on there. i told these people to stop calling me and she insisted all the info was true about me oweing them. the lady had an indian accent. nice try lady.
I picked up the phone but said nothing, after a few seconds of dead air, they hung up without playing the message! If the automated system doesn't detect a hello they won't play the recording ! I answered and they hung up ! Not my problem!
Let Suffness pay the bill for lots and lots of calls and zero results.
Kenneth Josephson ! wherever you are, heads up ! they are after you !
And you had my phone number before me. I told the Indian lady that we have no connection to and are not Kenneth and are not related to him . We'll see if the calls stop now.
I looked up the addresses to send letters and that Meadow Road address is listed to someone else. I found 6961 Brookshire Drive Dallas TX 75230 for Michael Bruce Suffness. I'm sending letters to his office and his home.
THREE TIMES EVERY DAY!
I refuse to call that 866 deal when they don't say who or what they are calling for. Let them keep calling and leaving that stupid voice mail message. I ain't answering. If you think I owe you, step up and send me something in writing !
Johnny Mike Aug 08th, 2007
She has been calling me everyday claiming I owe on a credit card from 1995. She called it GE Capital One. There is no such thing. I called GE Capital and Capital One, and I owe neither. I will find out a way to stop them!
I've been getting these calls on my machine telling me to call 866-241-2519
for over three weeks. I've been ignoring them but think I'll call the AG's office and the FTC as suggested.
I got a call from this number that showed up as a New York Call 212-377-0368. I answered and after a pause got a message that spouted off to please call concerning a personal business matter (I believe). I also think the first voice might have been Indian accent, but not sure at this point. The message gave a toll free number that I didn't have time to get. I called back the toll number from the ID and a lady with an Indian accent. She answered Intelinet Global Services (I believe.) She gave me her name. I asked the company name again and she gave it to me again. I believe she called me by name so they apparently either have an ID or somehow know who is calling. I told her that I wasn't using the toll free number. She didn't understand me, so I hung up. I don't have any unpaid or past unpaid bills so it couldn't be for me. I thought it might be for my sister, but am sure they mentioned my name when I called. This isn't the first time we have gotten messages about "personal business matters", but not sure if it were always from these yahoos or not.
Hoosier Daddy Aug 06th, 2007
Left a message to call an 866 number for an important message.
Every day, three times they call. Don't ask for nobody, don't say who they are. I answered and it's just a recording, you can't talk to them when they call ! This phone has been in my name for 2 years so it ain't my old debt they're calling about, it's the person who had this number way back who they got off the list they bought. I'm writing letters to Michael Suffness and Intelenet- the addresses and phone numbers are on the 212-377-0368
page if anyone else wants to get the info. Let's barrage them with mail and calls !!!!
After many calls, I called the return number and told them to quit calling. They said they can't help without me giving them my name. I refused and only gave my number and they hung up on me.
Two or three calls a day for the last month - I refuse to answer when I don't recognize the number. It is nevertheless annoying!
They have called 10 times in the last 5 days. Recording that says it is a "personal business matter" and I need to return call.
They keep calling saying every day at the same time. No idea why they keep calling. Sounds fraudulent to me.
I kept getting messages on my am, and today I finally called back to get these people to stop. The man, Gavin Samuels (I asked his name) said that I owed money to SBC from 2002 and he was a collection agency. He called me by my maiden name and I have not lived at the address he had for over 4 years. I asked for something in writing. After seeing all of these posts, I'm doubtful if I will get anything.
Calls started this week, logged by caller id, no msg. finally was here to hear actual call by recording by woman w/indian(?) accent. Since I am on no call list, complaint to FTC & FCC will follow upon next call.
Tell them that there is no one at that number by the name they are asking for. They will claim it is a wrong number (and thus not harrassment! yeah, right.)and will take you off their list. I just did this today, we'll see if they stop calling or not.
Please see previous messages. The number of the Attorney General for the State of Texas is 512-463-2191
Please feel free to join the fun!
John Bugh must go.
Please read my previous message. I'm having fun today. I just called the Federal Trade Commission that deals with folks like this John Bugh guy.
Please call them as the fines go up with the level of violations. It's 877-382-4357
. I talked to a wonderful lady who is sending the attack dogs after this guy.
Now I'm calling Texas to sic the attack dogs on them some more.
Please join in the fun.
This is a follow up email from my phone call to your office in Texas. I'm Richard Graham. You have been harrassing me and countless others with your credit collection scam.
I'm retired and rich and like a good fight. You're it. It's time for you to go to jail. Yes, I'm willing to spend any amount to put you behind bars where you belong for constanly calling me at 925-xxx-xxxx and leaving messages that say I owe you money.
There are two websites (at least) devoted to you and your sleezy company and I will have my lawyer contact those who want to join in a class action suit against you and these people are madder than I am.. Win, Lose or Draw, it will keep you busy and off the phone.
Also I will follow this up with a letter and a bill for $50 as my time is NOT free and if it were I would not donate it to YOU.
After I get off the phone with my lawyer, I will either have him call or I will call the State of Texas and see what they think of you and your behavior.
I sincerely hope that you have a very bad day, every day for the rest of your life until you reform.
Richard Graham Jul 27th, 2007
This is a SCAM operation! I called this Michael Suffness guy in Texas (who seems to own the company--his office and the company are the same address) and when I told his receptionist why I was calling, she couldn't hang up on me fast enough!
Let these Indian morons know that they're breaking the US laws regarding harrassment and that if they don't stop calling you, you'll be complaining directly to Suffness. His home address is listed above. Try him at 3am.
I have no clue why they are calling me everyday...IM 17..anyway to stop this?
You won't believe this one! I finally broke down & called the number. A Dawn(man)answered, "Ïntelenet Services, Dawn speaking." I explained that I was tired of them calling 5-6X a day for the past week or so & what could be that urgent that they had to act in such a manner. He responded,"Heidi?" I was shocked! I let him know that for all their trouble & my inconvience, they had a WRONG NUMBER! He apoligised profusely & told me that he had erased my number from their records & no more calls will be coming. What a mistake! I really feel sorry for Heidi if they ever get a correct number for her. We'll see if the calls really will stop! Wish me luck.
Automated message left on my machine says to call another number re business matter, Huh???? What is this all about?
I screen my calss & these people hang up! No message left on machine. Caller ID says Unknown Name.
Word to the wise: be INCREDIBLY RUDE to these people when they call. And I mean over-the-top rude. They're from India, so tell them that they'd be better people if they'd just eat hamburgers. Ask them if they own a 7-11 and if they know how to make a Slurpee. They seem really shocked when confronted like that. Don't worry about any bad things happening as a result...these fools are clearly scam artists.
Indian Giver Jul 17th, 2007
Why do I keep getting calls from these annoying A_ _ H _ _ _ _ _ ??? Today is July 16, 2007 and I've had eleven calls from them since July 2, 2007! What to do? Sign up with the National Do Not Call Registry, register your land line as well as cell phone.
Once you have registered, your phone number registration will be effective for 5 years. It will be illegal for most telemarketers to call you, and you will be able to file a complaint if a telemarketer does call you. The website www.donotcall.gov provides information about filing a complaint.
Hope this helps somebody -- I'm going to the dotgov website right now! Wish me luck!
Asked for my husband who died. Says $188. is owned. I asked who they are...they hung up.
been calling repeatedly for the past several days. no idea what my "personal business matter" could be. if it's for a collection agency, as noted by others, no idea why they're calling me.
LAST CALL OVER WK AGO-TOLD CALLER TO TAKE ME OFF LIST OR MY ATTORNEY WOULD BE CALLING HIM-NO CALLS SINCE
If you receive a call from this number and you have vonage, press the star key and then 77. When you are called from this number, it comes up as unknown. You can block it on vonage.
This is a collection agency and they give me someone by the name of Brenda Galatha that they are trying to reach.
Is there a petition that we can all sign?
It's a freakin recording - you can't even talk to them when they call, you have to call back the toll free # 866-241-2519
They didn't ask for me, so I didn't call back. Everyone here says it's for old old bills and I've only had this phone number for 3 years so it's probably for an old bill of the person who had this number before me ! Tell the FTC -_ Federal Trade Commission !
They want to collect for non existant bills. Be as rude as they are and threaten to sick the FCC on them. The calls will stop.
But Intelenet is only the company that outsourced it to India.
It's Michael B. Suffness, Collection Lawyer, who is behind it. There are 3 business addresses in Plano TX and 1 residence in Dallas TX.

Hey everyone, check out the page on 212-377-0368
! This is the same business, harassing us all from a foreign country !
Go see the page on 866-241-2519
. These are the same bunch of people calling from a foreign country. I don't even have a credit card ! Or any late bills of any kind ! Do we have to threaten them with federal fines or what ? This sucks !
A woman who can barely read the English script, doesn't ask for a particular person, just states, "This is an important business matter, call 866-241-2519 and a representative will take your call. Hours are from 8AM - 10 PM weekdays and 9 AM - 8 PM Saturday and Sunday." . What kind of place is open those long hours ? She gave the 866 callback number but my caller ID read 212-377-0368
which is an unpublished number in NY, NY !!!?????????????
i told him i never wanted to hear his voice again. they call as early as 8:30, everyday. How can i stop them?
I HAVE CALLER ID, I DO NOT RECOGNIZE THE NUMBER SO I DON'T ANSWER AND THEY DON'T LEAVE A MESSAGE. THEY CALL ANYWHERE FROM 3-6X'3 A DAY. EARLY AM TO LATE PM AND IT IS GETTING OUT OF CONTROL. I'M CONSIDERING A WHISTLE OR BLOW HORN.
these idiots keep calling my mother and leave no message. I call the # for more info and all they keep saying is that my mother needs to return the calls. pretty hard to do when they don't leave message. they had the gall to say i am leaving the message with you. no way. I asked for a letter but once again your mother needs to call us. IDIOTS!!!!!!!
Just wanted to warn you all to order a copy of your Transunion credit report. I did yesterday and saw that this company made an unauthorized inquiry and Transunion provided them with my report! It's now showing up on my report and I have to write letters to get it off.
Intelinet collector gave phone number 866-241-2519
for Corporate HQ, operator at HQ gave address in palatine il 600557408
After screaming and threatening to get on a plane to India and hunt these people down like wild boars - they stopped calling. I told them that I was a US Citizen and will only speak to people from the USA. I also told them that I have taken out a police report for aggravated harassment and will not seek formal charges. They have stopped calling - THEY ARE A SCAM OPERATION!!
Have been calling every day. Finally left a message and said it's in regard to a "personal business matter." I don't owe anything and don't know why they keep calling.
REP SAYS I OWE OLD DEFUNCT COMPANY $205 SINCE 1999-NOT A CHANCE-WANTS BANK # - HOW CAN WE STOP THEM?
Collection agency. They don't bother leaving a message - ever.
The A-Holes keep calling on a debt that is over 15 years old - for the record, the statute of limitation is only 6 years! What they are doing is not legitimate and is considered harassment. I need to verify who is behind all of this and we can take legal actions to shut them down!
I keep telling them to send me something in the mail and they claim they already mailed it in April. I told her to mail another she refused. I get nowhere with these people yet they insist I give my bank# for payment!!!
Some jerk in India saying he was a collection agent. Upon my further probing, he said the "past due account" was from Bally's Health Club and the original bill was from Feb 28, 1998!!! Um, 9 years ago and it wasn't even my account?!?!?! He said this account was sold to the collection agency in 2007. What is the SOL for this BS?!?!
called me about a debt 15 years old. not even mine at that. demanding me to pay. i filed a police report about... and notified the credit bureau...
Intelinet collector gave phone number 866-241-2519

These cowards keep calling me and never leave a message. I owe no one, if they are legitimate. ( So, if you are, stop calling me and all the rest of us, OK? ) I'm just glad that soon they will be prosecuted!
I am tired of these calls.
No idea - they never say anything and I'm not late on any bills. Drives me crazy!!!
no idea why these folks keep calling me since we have nothing due as far as payments etc.
This is a collection agency.
