Woman called my cell. I asked who she was; she claimed to be "Danielle." She kept asking for some guy, and some business name. I told her I had no idea what she is talking about, even though she guessed my business name correctly on the third try (but the name was totally unfamiliar).

This company is ridiculous! Its absurd how they misrepresent the repossession industry. Repossession is the banks absolute last effort, at that point nothing else has worked. But for this company to sit there and threaten, lie and badger all of the debtors and people they talked to. It just puts a bad spin on everyone in the industry. That is why when some of my field agents go into the field, as many other repossessors, they are met with such anguish. Granted noone is happy to see hear or see the repoman - NOONE. However there are the times when drastic measures are neccessary. As far as threatning you or badgering - By law they can't - but remember this - Repossessors fall oputside the ambit of the FDCPA.

It sickens me to see companies like this still in operation! I als have this to say - For those who wish to conceal their vehicle and not return it to te bank, remember its not yours since you defaulted on your contract - SO YOU DESERVE WHAT YOU GET!

I have a friend that asked me to look this company up b/c she got a call from an "investigator" who told her that she was late on her car payment, and if she didn't pay they would call the police and report the vehical stolen, and would get a reposession company involed. All of this brought her to tears, she told them she is not denying that she missed a payment on her vehical but she called the finance company and asked if she could defer a payment b/c her father has just passed and needed the money for funeral/burrial expences, when the company told her no, she had no choice but to be behind, even after explaing this to the "investigator" he advised her he was not interested in why she isn't able to make the payment, but she would need to come up with the money or else...THIS IS ILLEGAL!!!! these people are not INVESIGATORS!!! they are collectors if anything and they need to follow the FDCPA!!!! I know there is a man in New York that is trying to take companies like this down, Senator Charles E. Schumer again of New York, You can go to http://schumer.senate.gov/ and e-mail him with any and all compaints. I urge you to do this, this company is horrible!!!!

I recieved a call from the Windsor Group which boiled down to a investigation into a business partner of my husband and his brother-in-law. It was all fishy and I decided to do my own research. I placed the phone number into google and came up with the owner of the Windsor Group, that they are located in Richmond, Tx, and here is the link to their real website: http://windsoreg.com/index.html . "The Windsor Group is a specialized servicing company engaged in the management of delinquent accounts for many of the nation’s leading credit originators, including auto finance companies, banks, credit unions and other service providers. Our suite of services includes, legal services management, national repossession and skip tracing". Skip tracing is the practice of using any data that can be gathered on the individual or others the individual is known to associate with in order to trace down the individual. They will call anyone, former empoyers, friends, family, etc. They will also use any means of scare tactics to get the information they need. If you are contacted by these individuals looking for someone you know, do not give out any information. Also tell them never to call your house again. Lay it on the line, tell them you do not believe in the practice of skip tracing and that they will need to find whoever they are looking for by themselves without your assistance.

I asked if they were looking for this person regarding a criminal matter and was told "not if they clear this up." Message left on my answering machine stated my name, regarding case #9680683 which led me to believe this was a personal matter regarding myself, and asked me to call Jackie Jones at 877-295-7376 x1185.

In continuing, here is some useful information regarding a tool that can be applied to this situation when seeking legal retribution. It's called the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and here is the cliffnotes of what it entails:


Debt collectors are not allowed to use the following harassing or abusive tactics:

Use of or threatening violence or criminal means to harm you;
Use of obscene or profane language;
Advertising your debt for sale;
Telephoning you repeatedly or continuously with the intent to annoy or harass; or
Placing telephone calls without meaningful disclosures of their identity.

Likewise, debt collectors are not allowed to deceive consumers with the following:

False representations that they are government representatives;
Falsely represent that they will seize, garnish or sell any property or wages unless such action is lawful;
False representations that you have committed a crime or that you will be arrested or imprisoned;
Threats to communicate false credit information with any other person;
Falsely implying that the debt collector is employed by a credit bureau;
False representations implying that they are attorneys or that there is the involvement of an attorney in collecting a debt;
Falsely indicating the legal status of papers or forms sent to you;
Use of a false name;
Misrepresenting the amount of the debt; or
Sending you something resembling an official document from a court or governmental agency when it is not.

What do you guys think this is? A chat room? It's a damn message board. You're all acting like a bunch of incoherent, drivel-driving, insipid retards. Anyways, I've been called repeatedly by these people. They know my previous addresses though it doesn't appear they know my current one. I first heard about them when they were calling (Harrassing) my parents constantly. They're looking for a car that I've never owned. Though they are apparently positive I own it, because they won't stop calling. The last voicemail I received from them was some "investigator" literally telling me there was FRAUD charges pending against me........First off, they're not law enforcement; they're simply a bunch of pencil pushers behind a desk pretending to be omnipotent with their "cases". They're harrassing, belittling, rude, and not to mention stupid. I've already emailed the apparent "mastermind" of this company, a man by the name of Greg Brantley, and here's his info:

Information, this has got to be the stupidest thing i have ever read.

if they called you, then you obviously dont have any money to pay your car note, it charged off, and now its time to give it back.

just get on the tennis shoe express, give up your car, and go work at Denny's.

Like I said, out of control. Did any of you notice that "ha ha's" rant started off with personal attacks and ended with advice for me to "do what the man says." This is a debt collector for you, and is why they get no respect in life. This animal proudly proclaimed that he would beat his wife if she didn't do what he says...what a LOW LIFE. I hope you get used to being all alone and having no family. I would love for one of our soldiers that you are constantly harassing and talking down to get their hands on you. That is why you debt collectors call from unknown numbers, cause you know what would happen if you could be found. Trust me, you wouldn't be near as tough in person as you are on your keyboard or as when you are beating your wife or girlfriend, if you have ever even had one. And I doubt very seriously you have the money that you say; if so why would you waste time on this site defending debt collectors like yourself. Look, lonely man, just close your blinds and get under your covers by yourself and take a breath. You are doing nothing but proving my point by acting so irrationally. My wife and kids mean more to me than anything in this world just like others on this site. Maybe one day you will experience that life! You need to stop letting a wealthy equity company owner that you work for make you so miserable; it is not worth the $12.50 an hour or so that you make to have your life destroyed like it is. Get a grip bro!

Oh and once again you name yourself correctly.... a laugh!

And is answer to what you said that I beat my wife (if I wanted a fucken gold digger) hell yeah i would but that would be because she deserved it. No woman should ever talk back to me and woman should do what i say and then shut her fucken mouth.. I just wanted to see what you had to say..

Another debt collector defender!!! I love it! I told you all it is easy to ruffle a debt collectors feathers. The reason is because it messes with their money. HA ! I love it! Like I said, just do what I described and you will make other debt collectors just a miserable as "Dumb Ass Debtor." He probably has a broken, destroyed family because of outbursts just like what you just witnessed. Probably beats his wife and thinks he's tough. *****He named himself correctly "Dumb Ass" He is mad because he don't want people doing what I described. People like him will harass people that served their country and don't make ends meet. Debt collectors like him are the funnest ones. Everyone that reads what he wrote can tell he is out of control.

HAVE ANY OF YOU NOTICED THE "DEFENDER" ON THIS SITE. THEY KEEP DEFENDING ALL THE CLAIMS PEOPLE MAKE; OBVIOUSLY AFFILIATED WITH THE COMPANY IN SOME WAY, DUH! JUST REMEMBER THIS. THEY DON'T MAKE MUCH MONEY IF THEY DON'T FIND YOU. LETS MAKE IT OUR GOAL FOR THEM TO MAKE VERY LITTLE MONEY. ALSO, LETS TIE UP THEIR TIME AND PHONE LINES. CALL THEM BACK FROM A NUMBER THAT CANT BE TRACED OR DONT MATTER IF IT IS TRACED AND LEAD THEM ON TO SOME BULLSHIT STORY ABOUT WHERE THE VEHICLE IS OR ANY CRAZY STORY YOU CAN IMAGINE. HAVE THEM FOLLOWING FALSE LEADS AND WASTING THEIR TIME. ALSO, JUST CALL THEM ALL THE TIME AND BUG THE SHIT OUT OF THEM. REMEMBER, IT IS THEIR JOB TO INTIMIDATE YOU AND THEY WONT SHOW THAT YOU ARE BUGGING THE SHIT OUT OF THEM. BUT IF ENOUGH PEOPLE DO IT THEY WILL HAVE VERY BAD DAYS. JUST BE PERSISTENT AND CREATIVE IN WAYS TO GET AT THEM. TRUST ME IT WORKS EVEN IF THEY DONT ACT LIKE IT. I HAVE KNOWN PEOPLE THAT DO WHAT THEY DO AND THEY LEAVE WORK WITH HEADACHES AND FRUSTRATED, WHICH LEADS TO BAD MARRIAGES, FRUSTRATION, BROKEN FAMILIES AND MOST IMPORTANTLY THEM TO EVENTUALLY QUIT THEIR JOBS. IF EVERYONE WILL DO THIS WE CAN MAKE THEIR LIFE MISARABLE, BECAUSE THAT IS THEIR INTENTION WITH YOU.

To Earnest:

If they ask for your address to send you paperwork be aware that you may get more than what you bargained for. Especially if your debt is concerning a vehicle. I have to say in my experience they are more of a nuisance than anything. I received an email from the investigator and since then she has refused to communicate any other way other than by phone. So..Im going to have my number changed and she can contact me my way or not at all. Just a suggestion.

No idea what JP is talking about. I received calls from this number from "Lacy" claiming to be an investigator . At first she was real sweet then she turned hostile.She told me that I had no option but to turn over my vehicle. BS. It was comical actually. I contacted my bank through whom my truck loan was initially financed and was advised to contact the collection agency who in turn gave me my true options. I attempted to contact"Lacy" back and inform her but reached National Directory Assistance.Um..OK. JP she most defiantely called for money...or my the vehicle.

To Randy:

there are cases of actual identity theft that this company works on. you could be a victim of that. if i where you i would pull my credit report and over look all the accounts on there. other then that, they may have called you trying to see if you know how to reach someone else.

To Sharon:

as far as the fraud case that you say this company slandered your son with. these folks work on cases with the legal terminology of "attempting to hinder secured collateral with the attempt to defraud a financial institute". if your son fell ill and did not have any communication with the bank, and the bank had no way of reaching anyone in regards to their loan, then they will contact Private Investigative Firms, such as this one, and have them reach anyone in regards to your son and find out whats going on. they are not being dishonest in their attempts to reach your son.

and to all of those that believe this company is a collection firm. remember, collection firms by law must read a mini Miranda to you informing you that they are calling on behalf of a debt and that your call will be recorded, BY LAW.

please do your research before slandering a company that is hired by the bank to find missing collateral.

my son bought a vechicle almost 2 years ago and he got sick early this year and has been in the hospital. his sister paid his truck note for about 6 months and then she lost her job. i do not make enough to make the note so the note got behind and the windsor group called me looking for the truck and they called some friends saying they were investigating my son on fraud. i do not see how some one wanting to reposess a vechicle can say my son or anyone else has committed fraud. i think there should be a law against someone slandering someone's name like that. why didn't they just say they were trying to reposess the truck. you can get a lot farther with people by being honest than telling lies on them and making people think you really done something bad.

This appears to be tied to 214-647-3580. The detective sounded professional direct, and is probably a collections detective, not an officer of the law. He was looking for a nephew whom I suspect (since he has dropped out of site) has unpaid debt. I called back once on my dime and did not make contact. No need for me to keep trying.

hate to say it, but Ineverpickup you are wrong on your point. this company doesnt deal in debt collection, they never call for money, they call looking for mortgage'd collateral that has been unlawfully taken. and also, paying a charge off from your credit does actually help, although it may drop your score at first, because it brings the date of last activity current, it will show as a positive credit line as an account paid in full and it will keep MULTIPLE collection companys from trying to collect from you and each collection company will file on your credit report. and as and end note, if this company calling from 214-647-3580 was a collection company, then you debt would have been bought from the finace company and they would file on your credit report. but that doesnt happen due to the fact that they are actual Investigators looking to locate mortgage'd collateral.

We have been receiving calls for someone we do not know for 5 years now. We have explained this VERY CLEARLY but they just don't seem to get it and keep calling. The account was recently given to this company and they don't seem to get it either. We have asked for a note to be written in the permanent file (that gets passed from group to group) that we do not know this person and should not be called in regards to him. Obviously this has not happened. All these "investigators" do is look up anyone with the same last name and begin harrassing them.

Some heavy broken english woman calling her self Ms. Ortiz an investigator from Dallas, TX wanting me to call back with her case number. She's not an ivestigator, she's a debt collector. I won't call back. Word to the wise, if you have a bad debt, and it goes to some collection agency, paying wont help your credit. It will hurt it. Your acount was charged off already then and paying it won't help it. Paying on a old debt, lowers your score.
