Been getting tons from these people for 4 yrs now about someone named Laura Jones..over and over. They called and got hubby at 8am today and they were rude so he was rude back...it is coming from Phili.,PA and there reverse # thing MCImetro, Ats. I am sure it collections for the person above who give out our # I am told by online survey companies and other places. So I know she is avoiding debt calls. I have to call the FCC and get it stopped because they accuse me of being her all the time and telling me I am lying.
Yeah i called the866-225-3707
and told them to stop calling, and after refusing to spell my last name they hung up.
have no idea y these people keep calling we have no outstanding depts that are in collections
They need to learn the English language if they want to work on phones for collection agencies. We speak English and do not understand this kind of language.

These guys use an autodialer to call, and it always times out and drops the call as soon as I pick up the phone. They call constantly to "notify" that I'm behind on my payment by 30 days. These guys are a nuisance, and should be avoided at all costs.
It's sad that a credit card place resorts to prank calling to prod you into making your payment. Even if you're planning on doing just that.
clownshoes. the lot of them.
This is a collection agency for Credit One credit card

Got a call today from this number, and they let the phone ring twice and then hung up. So I blocked the number. I mean.. I owe a debt, call if that's your job, but since the phone they're calling isn't mine, they should either leave a message or just not call, otherwise it's harassment isn't it?
I received a call from this number today. A man with a strange accent spoke after a long silence after I said "hello?" and said I have an over due balance of $254 with my PNC Bank account... I said "What are you talking about? I don't have a PNC Bank account!" He said "never?". I answered "No", then he said "Thank you" and hung up before I could ask any more questions. Weird.
donotcall.gov online complaint site used for United States, for-profit commercial calls only...this may not apply to the non-English speaking call centers that are trying to collect a debt. It looks like (after reviewing the site)that this does not affect the harrassing callers for debts...we should have protection from "unwarranted calls".
This number calls at least twice a day. No answer. very irrating. How can I block this number??
ticked off Mar 04th, 2008
I filed a complaint with the do not call website. I don't know who these people are, what they want, nor will they answer the phone when I call back! Very annoying. I hope if I ignore it long enough they will go away!
I'm getting non stop harrassing calls from this number 215-876-6192. The calls come through seven days a week all hours of the day and night. They want to speak to my childrens father who has passed away, but they won't listen, and keep calling; demanding proof; hardly speaking English, and hanging the phone up on me. This is crazy! I want to know who these people are, because I'm ready to file some sort of report or sue someone! It is bad enough my children deal with the death of their father but to be pushed and demanded info over the phone by some company you can't even call back is absurd!
Calls about ten times a day or more but there is no one on the line at all.
For the last week, recieved almost 15 calls from this number. Finaly picked up. Person said she was Wendy, then hung up when I told them the person that they are looking for was not here. I owe nothing to any collection agency. What the hell?
I have been getting calls for about a month. I don't owe anyone money,so I don't have a clue as to who is so rude as to hang up when answered by me. I am considering a class action suit against them. Apparently I could find backers.
They call all hours don't wait anymore till 8.00 am didn't answer
I received a call from this number today at 2 pm, only said "Pennsylvania". Not sure if they've called before; no message.
Pennsylvania shows on caller ID Same as many here. Have been recieving daily, some times two calls per day since 2-15-08. In IL.
This call originates from:Philadelphia,Area; Willimton,Atlantic City,AA,NJ,DE,& MD.
and is listed as;MCI Metro ATS, Inc.
Wonder If there is a common link between all of us here and Aol?
Thanks for the helpfull info Texas . : )
Missed call on my home phone around noon & my cell phone @ 5:30pm, no voice mail message left on either. Caller ID showed the number and "Pennsylvania"
I've been getting calls from this number for a week or so maybe 10 times a day. No messages or anything and i call back and it drops the call.
I called to 1800 number the other guy put up, but they said im not in their system and humg up in me.
Was displayed on my caller id
Please refer to the Fair Credit Act. I apologize for not having the info to give here as I need to look it up myself. There is recourse, especially if they are calling for someone who used to have your phone number. I know it's a hassle but document the calls, whether or not you answer them, and take the offenders to small claims court. One can receive $1000 in damages per incident - yes, that's right. Per incident! Which does tend to make the hassle a little more bearable, right? The only way to get these companies to stop harrassing people is to make them pay when they do.
Caller "Ronnie" acted like she knew person calling for personally and even asked for a cell phone number. Told her did not have one and she got RUDE and short with me.
I am getting calls from various numbers related to Wah Tmeritz and Alliance One. They NEVER leave a message. They call 6-8 times every day including weekends and holidays!
overly-called Feb 19th, 2008
This number starting calling me a few weeks ago, every day or every few days. During the last few months, 866-385-0275
has been calling me almost every day, sometimes twice a day. I found online that these two numbers are both with Alliance One. I owe a debt to this company, as I have received notices in the mail. But this amount of calling amounts to harassment. Today I called 866-2235-3707 to complain, as one website recommended. I had my number removed from the list (supposedly). I will see if they call me tomorrow.
Your caller ID will show 215-876-6192. To call them back, dial 866-225-3707
This is who is calling...please report them to the FTC.

They call 2 or 3 times a day. They never say anything and hangup immediately. This is really annoying.
Not sure who these people are because they have very broken english...Need to go back to school to learn better speaking englsh for phone use.Or find someone who can translate.
2 calls today and 1 yesterday, everytime i answer they hang up???? Not sure what the deal is?
This number is from a collection company. Of course I don't have any bills in collection but they keep calling for someone else with my name but the middle intital is different, of course the last 4 of the social security number is different, and who ever they are looking for has a PA address but they keep calling me here in KY.
Second call; no message. Our phone has been under siege by bounty hunters for nearly a year because a former owner of the number evidently stiffed a hospital bill. This is just the latest attack...we long ago gave trying to explain the situation to these morons...now we simply never answer the phone unless we see a welcome CID. Tried FTC but do not like their solution as it requires us to locate and communicate with these zombies and even though we are not their intended victim, why tempt them by giving any indication at all that human life exists at our phone number?
I am legend Feb 14th, 2008
i keep receiving calls on my cell from this number, but i never answer because i don't recognize it. they never leave a message.

Got a missed call on cellphone. Left no message.
No message caller hung up. Nothing on CID
Same thing. But it's a fax machine and it screwed up our phone line all day!
Received call Sunday afternoon. Did not answer. Attempted to call from cell, Skype and work. It rings once then goes to a busy signal. Nothing came up in Google, nor reverse searches on Anywho or Superpages.
