Tey are using another number too. It is 845-589-9263.
They called 4 times in 12 minutes to our company requesting to talk to a person. They were referred to HR which would not give out personal information about an employee or x-employee. When told that person is not in our office, they wanted to know where she was. They proceeded to ask where she was located. HR woould not give out that information, so they got huffy and called back numerous times to try to get different ppl to give them the ionfo they wanted.

Pre-recorded message from "Kathy at the Small Business Network" pitching some $250K mastercard... Filed complaints with FCC, FTC ( and IL Attorney General...
 Jan 04th, 2008
I use Vonage, and subscribe to the e-mail translation of my voice mail box. Today I got this message (from phone number 216-896-1172): "This is Robert calling from the law office of Goodwin and Bryan. I need a return call at 1-800-223-4969. Our hours of operation are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, 8 AM to 9 PM. Tuesdays, 8 AM to 7 PM and Saturdays, 9 AM to 1 PM EST. Once again, the phone number is 1-800-223-4969. Please return our call. Thank you."
I am in a business where it is *possible* that an attorney *could* be calling, however, they normally leave their full name, a LOCAL number (or an actual area code) and they indicate what the call is in reference to. Being suspicious, I went to the internet to find out which firm this could be and what TYPE of cases they handle. I could find no information. I called the number and a woman answered as the "Law office of Goodwin & Bryan". I asked her where they are located. She said Cleveland, Ohio. I asked if there is a web site, and she said "I don't think so". ALL legitimate attorneys have web sites. I then looked up: ...Goodwin..Bryan...Cleveland..Ohio...and it led me to this site where I can see that there have been many complaints. I am surprised that this is a collection agency. I haven't had a balance on a credit card in about 10 years, and I pay all of my bills on time. So, needless to say, I will not call them back, and am contemplating any legal action that may be available to me.
 Jan 02nd, 2008
I get a call once a week from these assholes. I report every call to
 Dec 26th, 2007
This number called my cell phone. It was a recording from "Cathy at the Small Business Network" They've called a few other times.
 Dec 14th, 2007
So has anybody resolved this? So far this is only people whining (including me) about how this automated message calls you. Any thoughts?
 Dec 14th, 2007
Kathy - Small Business Network - CCR, Inc.
Repeatedly calling.

I'm repeatedly reporting them to
 Dec 10th, 2007
Ok - when this company leaves a message it is to 'call them back' at 866-310-9662. I have a feeling that this is tied to a business I haven't owned now in over five years ago - in another state!! but they 'offer financing/credit help' when they leave a message on my voice mail. Ugh - I'm SO sick of these calls and I tell them - "I don't own the business anymore - it doesn't even exist - and I don't have a need for any credit"

Don't know what else to do to 'get off this list' - so I just don't answer the phone when they call anymore. But, they still leave messages I have to 'delete' out of my voice mail. ANNOYING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
 Dec 04th, 2007
Some guy by the name of Richard called me today, said he was with Better Health and said they had mailed me something in regards to my Companies benefits. I called my Benefits Department and they also got a call from this same number and said they saved the message as it was extremely rude.
It concerns me after reading all this that whoever this is not only is calling me but also my HR Department. Why, I have no clue.

Any advice email me @
 Nov 29th, 2007
This is a scam. I have gotten 4 calls for a credit card from this number. This time they called themselves the Small Business Network. I think this number is used for colletions and telemarketing. I use to work for a company that wanted you to make at least 200 calls per day. They log down the calls you make and thats how you are paid. A lot of us didn't like the job so we'd call numbers and hang up to meet the 200 calls.
 Nov 23rd, 2007
these fucking ass people keep calling me and they keep it up i am going to put a fucking bomb to them too also because they aint getting shit from me too also
 Nov 19th, 2007
I am really getting sick of these people. They call me every day and say nothing. I had researched this number previously, about a year ago and these freaks let up for a while. The most annoying thing: They never leave a message and when you answer they just sit there, or as happened a few days ago they actually made a pig squeal then hung up. Isn't there anything we can do about this? I do not owe anyone, anything. I have excellent credit and I even checked my credit report after they started calling my number and it is A+!! It is annoying as hell though.
 Nov 08th, 2007
I get this call nearly every day, and as soon as I pick up and say hello it disconnects.
 Nov 08th, 2007
No calls yet, but I got a collection letter from CCA for $75 that is invalid should never have gotten to this point. I found a pretty good dispute letter at the below link. I integrated into my dispute letter, and hopefully it puts an end to the harassment and extortion from EarthLink. Will never deal with EarthLink ever again.
 Nov 02nd, 2007
Mastercard offer for small businesses. They call a couple of times a month.
 Nov 01st, 2007
A answering machine saying "Please leave a message" is what I get when I call back. They call a few times a week and don't leave a message. My ringer is off during work so I never get to answer it and talk to anyone.
 Oct 25th, 2007
Call showed up on my voicemail callerid list, but they didn't leave a message.
 Oct 25th, 2007
I get the calls from 216-839-2146 sometimes 3 times a day all week long. They don't speak to me but to ask for my husband, when I tell them I am the wife and he isn't available, they hang up. Annoying as Hades. Caller ID says CCR, Inc. They have many many numbers I see. Have lodged preliminary complaints with them and notified do not call list about them and BBB Cleveland. Every time they call I will send a complaint.
 Oct 10th, 2007
Search here and at 800 Info for the number 216-896-1143 and you will find a plethora of info on this company.
 Oct 10th, 2007
I believe another number to flag associated with this company is 216-896-1172. We have been harrassed with this the 216-896-1143 number for months and just have ignored the numbers after answering the phone to hear dead silence when this number comes up on our caller ID. But now this new one has replaced the numerous calls from the old one. Maybe they need to just give up?? We can not even GET Earthlink services in our area and have a local bug exterminator de-bug our place. Not even sure if Orkin is available in our area?? Good luck to everyone.

Getting Calls from them too... keep hanging up.... not sure what's up with that.... oh well.... would love to have a loud whistle when they call!!!! :)
 Sep 27th, 2007
They keep calling me, along with 800-741-9922 Think I have someone's old number. They suck.
 Sep 25th, 2007
I've not had ANY calls from these asshats since my complaints thru the BBB & my cease & desist letter.

I track all my incoming phone calls, even missed ones, and they have not even tried to call.

I HIGHLY recommend you send a cease & desist letter - send it certified / return receipt requested - Here's a URL for a sample letter to get you started:

I also sent a copy of the C&D letter to the BBB.
 Sep 25th, 2007
I can't believe this number is harassing so many of us. They keep callin me at 7 in the morning and it's always silence. I did *57 to trace them. My phone company said I could block them by *60 and adding their number. I will also email Better Business Burea (daMan put up the info - thanks). Maybe if enough of us do, they will do something.

I got the same phone calls from Sean Lee and called with the same results. Filed complaint with the FTC and FCC on-line three weeks ago. Just got a letter from Earthlink saying my phone number has been removed from the collections agent has been removed.

So try that route and it might work for you too!
 Sep 16th, 2007
they just called and hung up
 Sep 13th, 2007
Knock-on-wood, cross-my-fingers . . . I *think* I've got these calls stopped. I've not had a call for 8 days . . . this after having these assholes calling two & three times a day, every day for close to 4 months. The Better Business Bureau complaints seems to have been the factor in prompting CCR to FINALLY remove my phone number from their broken dialer. Here's the web site I visited to file my numerous BBB complaints:

I filed complaints against:
Corporate Collection Services, Inc.
AKA: Coastal Recovery Services, Inc.
AKA: Call Center Resources, Inc.
23220 Chagrin Boulevard, 4th Floor
Cleveland, Ohio, 44122

The BBB rep who answered my complaints was:
Stephanie Nichols
Dispute Resolution Specialist

The person she was in contact with at CCR INC was:
Shirley Smorado
Client Services

I've also sent them a cease & desist letter so have the option to sue should they decide to begin calling me again.
 Sep 09th, 2007
1 to calls a day
 Sep 08th, 2007
Only recieved this as a message, never picked up the phone. I've heard that he is from a collection agency for Earthlink and if you do not return his call, you have not been officially notified about the collection and dont have to pay. Great! Except... I never had earthlink.
 Aug 30th, 2007
I've done this before, but here goes again - "Amanda" and "Sean Lee" keep calling from 216-896-1143. Day after Day, sometimes hour after hour. Vonage Caller ID puts their company as CCR INC.
Sharon Cook
 Aug 28th, 2007
I get calls from this CCR Inc. and they always ask for a girl that doesn't live at my house. I have been told that my number will be removed, oh I'd say five times a week for the past two months. I finally found this web site and contacted the CEO of the company, I told him I was on the Colorado No-Cll list and if I recieved another call from CCR Inc. He would hear from my Lawyer.
They are rude and I don't believe the way they do business. I have a feeling I will see them in Court within the next month or so, the way they have been calling me.

This is a collection agency for RCN if you are in the Chicago area.

Same thing as Victoria. I get a call almost everyday for the past few weeks. They leave a sort of cut off message asking to call back at an 800 number.
 Aug 27th, 2007
called the posted 800nr. from CCS
They identified my Telephone Nr. ask me if I am Julien. No Idea.
When I start to pressure them, they told to remove my Phone Nr.

I just got a call today. A few mins ago. Who is CCR, Inc.?
 Aug 25th, 2007
They want James Roberts- have been calling for six months. When we explain that we don't know this person, they hang up! Grrr!
 Aug 24th, 2007
Instead of Jennifer Jones this time, it was Sean Lee calling. SIX TIMES today...and I am absolutely FED UP with it!
 Aug 23rd, 2007
I've been recieving these calls for about 2 weeks - the first week were hang up calls as soon as I would answer --- lucky me-- this week I've graduated to an automated message!!
 Aug 23rd, 2007
I have recived 18 calls in the past week. i never answer the phone if i dont know whos calling. they left messages I HAVE AT LEAST 4 DIFFRENT PEOPLE LEAVING MESSAGES FROM THE SAME NUMBER. i dont know who there pople are. ima guessing its a scam.
 Aug 23rd, 2007
BTW, if anyone is concerned for traced calls or stolen cell mins use calling cards or online computer phones. Good luck everyone.
 Aug 23rd, 2007
(1st Yvette wasn't me, I don't use language like that.) After reading the comments, I became intrigued so I gave them a call from the listed 866 #. I was a victim of id fraud so I'm very leary. They said I owe a Earthlink bill for $27 some dollars for July 07, but we have AT&T and not Earthlink. Is this legit? They told me to call Earthlink, but where, who?
 Aug 23rd, 2007
It's always the same msg but the 800# they leave does not go thru. He wants us to call 866-250-8646 (???) Very strange.
 Aug 23rd, 2007
This sounds like a scam - it reads CCR Inc on caller ID, gives a name and number to call. From the person who had my number before I did, I heard about the collections angle too.
 Aug 22nd, 2007
We have recieved 3 calls from this number and no one is speaking on the other line.
 Aug 22nd, 2007
They call constantly pretending to be a law firm Goodwin & Brian and leave a phone number 1-800-223-4969 to call back. A reputable law firm does not pester people with phone calls. They appear to be an shady collections company, caller ID shows CCR, Inc. 216-896-1143. I will not answer or call back these numbers. I recommend you do the same.

 Aug 21st, 2007
I tryed to call it and they say it is not a working number to ck the number and try again. they did not pay there phone bill, oir they closed down.
 Aug 21st, 2007
They left the phone number: 1-866-896-1261 for me to call back on the answering machine. When I called back the 1st time they asked for someone I did not know and told me they would take my name off of their list. The 2nd time they would not tell me anything at all and the man was rude.
 Aug 21st, 2007
It leaves a messages to call a 800 number and ask for Chan Lee when i call it back no one answers

CCR, INC website:
 Aug 18th, 2007
On advice of my attorney, I'm sending a cease & desist letter tomorrow to Corporate Collections Services ( They are the ones responsible for these harassing calls.

I'm also carbon copying the Attorney General for the States of Ohio & Maryland, the Better Business Bureau and the FTC.

These assholes have pissed me off highly.
 Aug 18th, 2007
I get phone calls from CCR Inc. up to 4 times a day! I absolutely refuse to call the number the recording gives me. I've never done any business with any CCR, nor do I have any outstanding/overdue debts for them to collect on. The calls are horrendously harraassing! I've reported them to the BBB. Still waiting to see what comes of it.
 Aug 15th, 2007
Received call from a woman at (216) 896-1143. She asked my name after me asking who is CCS, she hung up. Immediately "googled" to find out where the number's from and found this website...Have already filed FCC complaint, will do others if I receive another call.
 Aug 15th, 2007
I answered and there was a recording sying to call a 1-800 number. I didn't call that number.
 Aug 15th, 2007
Computer call from 216-896-1143 asking me to call Shawn Lee at 866-250-4656. This is latest of several dozen of these calls I have gotten in past month or so. Called and found it to be collection agency but person who identified himself as Shawn Lee refused to give name of companmy. He was calling for a "Carian" (sp??) something or other. Told him I was not that person and did not know him. He promised I would get no more calls. I'll bet. It's a collection agency and they are rude, rude, rude...
 Aug 14th, 2007
I just installed a business line in my home and haven't given the number to anyone. I registered on the Do Not Call list, but they call anyway. I can't tell them not to call anymore because they hang up when I answer.
 Aug 14th, 2007
A correction to last msg. phone is 216 896 1143
 Aug 13th, 2007
I have had experience with this number. I noticed that $15 was ripped off from my available balance when I checked it upon receiving this call.

Who ever is sending should be caught and sent to jail
 Aug 10th, 2007
Constantly getting calls from this number....Yet when I try to answer no one responds...Or I can't get any answer from the Operator... :-(
 Aug 08th, 2007
After a bit of research I found the actual law offices of Goodwin and Bryan. I called them and they confirm they have a collection agency as part of their business. You now have a real number go after:

Elizabeth Ann Goodwin
Attorney Reg Number: 0065048
Attorney Title: Partner
Office: Goodwin & Bryan
Employer Address: 22050 Mastick Road

Office Phone: 440.686.9000
 Aug 08th, 2007
I've found out horrible things about CCR. Because of a dispute with a phone company. As a result, I don't have a phone (can't afford one). They're calling my sister looking for me.--Yeah right! They know where I live. Send a certified letter. That's what I would have to do. I've read online that CCR will call family members to embarrass the person they're trying to contact and #2 they don't send letters because (a) we'd know where they were, and (b) we could send them a cease and desist letter to stop the phone calls. I'm in the fight for my life right now. They can go to the devil before I'll return a phone call.
 Aug 08th, 2007
Call from CCR INC
I haven't returned the call. Checked out this site instead.
 Aug 07th, 2007
No one was there. Caller ID said CCR, Inc.
 Aug 07th, 2007
These people are collection agents. The legal name of the organization is Corporate Collection Services, Inc. located at 23220 Chagrin Blvd, Cleveland, OH 44122-5408 office phone is 216-464-2565. They also have various other entities with the same phone number, including a call center at the same address, different floor. The way I stopped them from calling is to turn them over to the state department of consumer affairs and threatened to notify local authorities for harassing phone calls. The calls stopped.
 Aug 07th, 2007
I keep getting calls from "robert" WTF
 Aug 07th, 2007
I would register with no call then file a complaint
 Aug 06th, 2007
Caller ID says CCR INC but the recording demanded a return phone call to Goodwin & Bryant. Called back to demand they remove my number.
 Aug 06th, 2007
Several calls have been received but not contacts have been made. Very anoying!!
 Aug 06th, 2007
Tracy from CCR, Inc call wanting information from you and when ask for a superviser, a lady by the name of Lisa pick ups, laughing. Of course when confronted of not being the superviser she hangs up
 Aug 06th, 2007
Since early July, I have received calls from 216-896-1143... The caller identifies himself as Sean Lee or Lease... I am to call-back at 866-250-4656. I have NO DEBT owing to this agency or any other agency...Who do I contact? What Federal Agency has any teeth to stop this harassment? I appreciate the responses found at this web-site... I am willing to participate in filing a suit against CCR.
I'd put money where my mouth is to shut theirs.

I keep getting calls from this number:216-896-1143

The party hangs up when I answer.

WHen I call this number the phone company gives me an error message and says the call can't be put through
 Aug 04th, 2007
Only by filing complaints will these bastards stop calling. I suggest you file complaints with EVERY call.
File a complaint with the Ohio Better Business Bureau
File a complaint with the Ohio State Attorney General
File a complaint with the FCC (Do Not Call Registry)

I got call from Sean Lee. Today is my first day the call me. Please tell me how to stop this call.

They can not call you before 8:00 am your time... if they do, it is against FDCPA laws... remind them of that next time you get a call at 7:30 am
 Aug 01st, 2007
I rec'd a call from CCR Inc early this (7:30a.m./08/01/07). The caller refused to identify herself/Company, therefore I refused to identify myself (also, she gave me first name that was slighly different from mine). She became angry and stated, "if you don't identify yourself, we will proceed against you and I hung up. I don't know who they are, but I will investigate through The Better Business Bureau.
 Aug 01st, 2007
Found a NICE little program to route calls through your computer modem . . . and ZAP these asshats calls once and for all. Goodbye forever CCR INC and ALL other telemarketers.

Happy PhoneTray User :)
 Aug 01st, 2007
**OK** I finally ALSO Just filed 2 reports! BOTH to the FCC about THIS # for CCR and all the #s I saw listed with the comments and ALSO for that E-MANAGEMENT # who is also calling me now! Well, I hope all this reporting does something!
 Jul 31st, 2007
I am getting SOO AGGRIVATED! I'm reporting ANOTHER call from CCR! AANNND NOW I'm getting calls from some place called 'E-MANAGEMNENT' & 'E-MANAGEMENT G'!!!! Their doing the SAME thing... just sitting there not saying anything! I have like 4 calls to report with THEM next! I've also of course reported EACH OF THESE CALLS to the 'Do NOT call Registry!
 Jul 31st, 2007
Sooooo Annoying! Check out this link... some scam or something.
 Jul 30th, 2007
thanks for all the good info, I will block this number
 Jul 28th, 2007
They are calling me too and I've had other similar collections calling me..this started after I filled out some information online for online buisnesses,etc. I got calls from companies and then now collection agencies..I think its some kind of scam. By confirming your name they have your address so it makes it easier to steal your identity. Don't answer or call them back.
 Jul 28th, 2007
Like the others before me, I keep getting calls from 216-596-1143 and when I answer the call, I hear a prerecorded message saying: "Hello, my name is Sean Lee, I need you to return my call today to 866-250-4656, I'm in the office from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM, Monday through Saturday, Eastern Standard Time, once again, my name is Sean Lee, at 866-250-4656 , thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.

It appears that the agency is looking for someone named Kerri McCoy - the dead beat that had my unlisted phone # more than 4 years ago.... guess they just us the old shotgun approach - go figure!
 Jul 28th, 2007
Ok, just reported 2 more calls... I WISH our phone service had blocking, but we just recently got digital phone service and they don't have it yet. That SUCKS! I'm soo sick of this!
 Jul 27th, 2007

that number has been disconected of COURSE, lol.. do you have another # for them possibly?? I would like to call and say EXACTLY What you just wrote... it's getting RIDICULOUS with all these calls every day! Thanks for any info or advice on how to reach them!
 Jul 27th, 2007
Sean Lee is not a real person. It is a fake name made up for their auto dialer message so they can track what account you are calling on.
me 2
 Jul 26th, 2007
I used to work there. That CID # is their outbound # call them abck at 216-464-2563. Tell them they do not have permission to ever call you again. This if for medical or internet service collections. A collection company can not call you once you tell them to cease and desist. Alos, if they tell you you have to put it in writing, tell them that the FDCPA says you don't. If they contact you again they can be sued. I used to train new collecters on the laws of the FDCPA and CCR can not get away with this!
 Jul 26th, 2007
no message, they just call a couple of times aday
 Jul 25th, 2007
I'm reporting EVERY call from these asshats to both the Ohio State AG & the FTC.

I suggest everyone else do the same.
 Jul 23rd, 2007
Yeah we've been getting calls from Goodwin and Bryan saying that they need a return call, they stated the harassing calls about a year ago, finally after like 4 months the calls seemed to stop, now they've started up again...

They're starting to really irritate me
 Jul 23rd, 2007
...was just thinking again... I think I'm going to file a complaint at the BBB!!! I've been reading some of your messages and it looks like Earthlink is ROTTON! So, I'm going to report them for BAD BUSINESS! If you wall want to do the same just go to ...I have filed comlaints here before and they have been settled! Now that I KNOW what they are up too... I'm going to file with the BBB and see if that helps!
 Jul 23rd, 2007
OMIGOSH! I JUST noticed something... MAE wrote that this was about Earthlink...?? You know, interestingly enough... we had tried to get cable... and we had called a company we THOUGHT was Road Runner... ended up being NOT who they said... so we CANCELLED the account the NEXT day... when the package CAME... we did NOT accept it... NOW they are saying we STILL owe for shipping and handling even though we NEVER accepted the package!!! So, I'm wondering if that's what this is about?? They are trying to make us pay $$ that isn't theirs! I mean we did NOT accept ANY package from them and cancelled the NEXT day... OH and TRYING to even cancel with them... EARTHLINK whom we NEVER ordered from in the FIRST place... (we were ONLY wanting cable!) ...this has been months and MONTHS of trying to get this resolved! It's ridiculous! So, I'm going to call their customer service dept. TODAY and find out if that's what this is about!
