I received a call today from800-214-7887, but these people used 800-214-5362 on 5/30 and 6/12. On 6/2/2009 they used (214) 324-9575, which is their main number. They are sneaky.This is a collection agency called Commercial Recovery Systems of Dallas, TX. They are the absolute worst of a bad lot of scum sucking bottom feeders that give cat fish a bad name. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is a joke to these vermin. Download the full 26 pages of the act from the fEDS.
A Mr. Evans called today and said that "he had received my case from a client, a bank, and that the IRS would be involved". No company mentioned. No "purpose to collect a debt" per FDCPA rules. Just a threat.
The stink of this call sent me back to my collection call log. On May 30, 2009 a Marcus Lee called from (214) 324-9575 and said that he was "processing a complaint against me in his department". He called back on 6/2; same threat. On 6/12 he upped the ante by saying that he was with the "Law Enforcement Division of CRS", and that he had a "complaint against me for falsifying information", but he was giving me the "benefit of the doubt". He concluded with "you have been notified".
