Have received probably 100 calls from this number and similar numbers. Always for someone I've never heard of. Today the man claimed he had spoken with her in December. I should have asked him which year, because I've had this number for over 6 years and nobody else has lived with me. I requested that he remove my number from their records, and he said "I will NOT do that" and hung up. I am going on comments here that this is MRS Associates. I contacted them via their website and stated that I consider these calls to be harassment and that I will report them to the Attorney General in their state (NJ) if they continue. By the way, if you are actually the person with the debt, U.S. law states all you have to do is say "stop calling me." If they do not, you can report them to the FTC. Ironically, if you are NOT the person with the debt, there is no law, that I am aware of, that requires them to stop calling on request--unless the calls constitute harassment.

Applied Bank has been calling for 4 years for someone that has not had this number. I finally got a number out of one those idiots. I told them for the past 4 years to remove my number. So today after i cursed them out for the hundredth time. I call them back. They claim it takes 48 hours to remove the number. Wrong because they are still calling. I will report them for harassment at the BBB and other authorities. Enough is enough. I do know that they are outsource to India. They use American Names (saw it on a Documentary last month)

Kept telling this man I am on SS DISABILITY because of a stroke. He kept saying I was DEED BEET and to pay him now or he take me to court (sorry trying to type like he spoke). He kept saying he couldn't hear me when I gave him the facts, but he heard me when I said do you want my bank account number...LOL.

What jokers.

We recieved a call from this number at 6:30 am asking for someone unknown to us. This person had an accent and was arguing demanding to know who they were talking to. My husband told them they had the wrong number and they would not hang up and kept asking for this strange person.

This number showed up on my caller id at work. They were calling for my son ! I asked them how they got my work number, and was told that my son put it down as his home number, which I know he didn't. When I challenged the caller to provide me with more info, he hung up on me.

THomas Richards said to call 877-553-31289 (yes - too many numbers!) but the # on caller id was 223-987-5001. I tracked that # to MRS Associates.

This is a Organization reporting to be a collection Agency but in fact is a SCAM to get your Credit Card #

When I saw the "Ohio Call" and the area code 223 (there is no such are code in Ohio, that's where I'm from) it sent up whistles. I didn't answer but, I think we have a good idea. Thanks for the comments below.

These are the same creeps calling from area code 223-987-5001 numbers that don't exist. Their India-based call center calls out using that bogus number series for caller id purposes as well.

this number called again, MRS calling about an old Capital One bill, when I asked where the caller was located, he replied he was in India. Caller became very defensive when I challenged them about the bogus area code and number they were creating for the caller ID and I warned them I was reporting their behavior to the FCC.

I received another bogus 223 call this morning, this time from 223-987-5001. Left no msg.

This appears to be MRS (or ARS), a collection agency using spoofed caller ID numbers, also see notes for 223-987-5200. According to QWest, my local telco, there is no such 223 area code, and any such numbers are bogus. This is part of the newest scam where collection agencies call you from overseas and or from non-existent numbers trying to trick you into answering, as well as to avoid being reported or blocked.

I also received this call on my home and my cell, on my cell it shows a +sign which means its overseas, I answered and it is a collection service, I am not sure for which company it is, also alot of companies are now using SPOOF card companies so when they call it shows what ever they want it to show on your caller ID or they route it through a foreign carrier like this number is routed through INDIA but is located in New Jersey. They are getting smarter, but so far i have stayed ahead of them i bought the privacy corps person to person caller id unit and you can choose to block any number or groups of numbers (800,877,866, ect.) from calling you, it routes them straight to a message i have on my announce only answering machine that says my number has been disconnected, I literally went from 50-60 calls a day to like 3 or 4. its wonderful. there website is www.person-to-person,net i have used this for about 2 years now and love it. *UPDATE, if you log on there site and it says this item has been discontinued, dont worry they have a newer unit they are getting ready to release, you can call them with any questions, good luck.. brian
