Just for the record, Academy Recovery & Monarch are the same company.
Don't give these scum-bags one bit of info and not one red cent of your money.
If people would quit paying these bottom feeder collection agencies, they would
all collapse. As they say in the Wizard of Oz... be gone, before somebody
drops a house on you.

As noted below this is MONARCH RECOVERY MANAGEMENT, INC. | 10965 DECATUR RD | PHILADELPHIA, PA 19154 | PHONE 215.281.7500 | FAX 215.281.7512 and their website is http://www.monarchrecoverymanagement.com/index.html
They called and asked for someone with a similar name to mine. As usual these scumbags search out anything close to who they are looking for. Told them they had the wrong number. See what happens next.

THIS IS ACADEMY COLLECTIONS SERVICES AND THEY HAVE ALREADY HAD TO PAY HEFTY FINES TO THE FTC. " Academy Collection Service, Inc. and its owner, Keith Dickstein, have agreed to pay $2.25 million to settle Federal Trade Commission charges that Academy and its collectors misled, threatened, and harassed consumers; disclosed their debts to third parties; and deposited postdated checks early, in violation of federal law.
