Accounts Receivable Management is a collection agency that has been in business since 1975. Accounts Receivable Management is headquartered in Thorofare, New Jersey, and has offices in Louisville, Kentucky, and Midland, Georgia. Accounts Receivable Management collects on debt originally owed to credit card companies, retail stores, hospitals, auto finance companies, and student loan companies.

According to its Web site, Accounts Receivable Management’s “commitment to service and excellence is second to none.” However, according to its track record, Accounts Receivable Management’s collection activities shed a much different light when analyzed under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. The FDCPA has been around for almost 35 years. The FDCPA is a federal law that applies to every state. In other words, everyone is protected by the FDCPA. The FDCPA is essentially a laundry list of what debt collects can and cannot do while collecting a debt, as well as things debt collectors must do while collecting a debt.

According to the Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER), Accounts Receivable Management has been sued over 100 times in the last 3 years for debt collection harassment. It does not get any better for Accounts Receivable Management on the Better Business Bureau. The Better Business Bureau has processed over 70 billing/collection issues, and over 85 total complaints, regarding Accounts Receivable Management in the last three years.

Accounts Receivable Management has several telephone numbers it places debt collection calls from. Accounts Receivable Management may be calling you from the following telephone numbers: 800-220-3350, 954-874-9920, 832-260-0414, 866-932-6801, 888-548-8829, 866-937-2249, 866-932-6805, 866-998-8526, 231-306-4788, 803-325-1158, 602-274-9911, 866-932-6810, 877-813-2900, 866-932-6721, 866-679-4046, 800-303-1995, 866-839-8858, 800-777-6116, 732-726-5692, 856-931-4500, 614-322-1696, 443-550-7975, 202-367-9845, 231-337-2146, 269-477-2149, 614-246-9462, 651-319-9163, 714-364-4465, 800-942-1572, 818-251-9361, 856-687-4120, 866-932-6731, 866-932-6770, 866-932-6791, 888-276-8572, 904-421-3330, 208-321-6554, 253-218-3451, 313-483-7070, 502-457-9129, 616-818-7896, 678-331-7211, 757-394-3149, 800-993-4685, 855-593-0070, 856-687-4127, 866-932-6712, 866-932-6741, 866-932-6777, 866-932-6820, 916-529-4409, 973-718-2454, 208-577-6173, 254-230-0272, 405-555-0199, 561-869-4490, 651-304-6390, 678-331-7257, 800-557-2114, 856-472-2473, 866-281-4135, 866-932-6713, 866-932-6750, 866-932-6780, 866-932-6802, 866-932-6822, 888-871-6484, 916-529-4413, 267-439-4927, 425-648-9488, 571-261-0052, 651-304-6871, 702-734-2654, 800-620-4284, 817-717-8245, 856-687-4115, 866-590-1779, 866-932-6726, 866-932-6755, 866-932-6786, 877-696-2660, 888-988-7727, and 952-259-1101.
Is Accounts Receivable Management harassing you over a debt?

This caller is from Embarq / Centurylink / the PHONE COMPANY. I switched to the cable provider's phone service and forgot to pay the last bill from Embarq / Centurylink. They are calling me repeatedly for $37.45. I only know what they are calling about because I FINALLY received something in the mail today. Mailing the check today so they will leave me the *&$# alone!

They keep calling me from the same 231-337-2146 & from 302-394-6837. Both numbers come up as Per R. They never leave a message and when I answer a recording asks me to hold.

I never came to pick a fight either, only correct a broad statement for the benefit of others and try to point out that collectors are more likely than not to hide their identities when calling. It's also quite possible for someone not connected to RPM to spoof as RPM, just as collectors spoof their own. Some of these threads consequently get very mixed reactions, with two camps insisting the caller is or is not a given name. Most call entries on these sites are not "information" in the reference work sense, but "intelligence" which needs sifting.

I had already run searches on the RPM name and this number and several close number variants, correctly predicting a bank of similar numbers in use. The majority opinion still says debt collection and often names RPM. Your broadcast of the identical insistent message on every known caller database appears to be the minority voice. It might be helpful if you quoted what FTC and your AG actually said about this specific number.

Resident47, you don't understand that:

a) I'm watching my credit reports like a hawk for years now
b) I have never owed anyone past due date a dime in my life
c) these people have a lot of pending complaints against them for several scams, many of which were not bill-collection-related (just google the damned number)
d) they refused to give me any information when I called them back
e) the Federal Trade Commission and the Attorney General of my state have very detailed information about how bill collectors act and I discussed this with them
f) I got friends who have been confused for others by bill collectors. At all points, the bill collectors told them exactly who they were looking for (not my friends) and although several were rude, the mistake was acknowledged.

This discussion between us ends here because my goal is to give information to other consumers, not to start a bickering exchange with you that would be counter-productive. Have a nice day.

Sara, you evidently don't understand the term "skip trace". You don't need a valid debt or a derogatory trade line on your credit reports to be hassled by collectors. You may get the mystery calls if you are a peer or neighbor or relative of the intended target, OR if your data is goofed up with someone else's account, OR you share a similar name or data point with the alleged debtor, OR your name is on account you've paid or is too aged to reasonably pursue. The bad collectors don't need much for an excuse, and they don't much care whose name is on the settlement checks they want.

Your feedback from FTC and your AG may stand, but then again collectors change numbers like socks, and CID spoofing is a growing industry trend. The majority of reports assert collector Receivables Performance Management uses this number, an outfit with piles of complaints and Federal violations dragging behind. In a sense we can say "they are scammers", but RPM is able to enlist judges to help with fraudulent collections. This makes it imperative for call recipients not to take any hint of collection activity lightly, not before caller identity has been firmly established.

No, they are not a collection agency, they are scammers. I even called them back once and they refused to tell me what they wanted, then hang up. To begin with, I don't owe money to anyone, so I shouldn't be receiving these calls. Next, I know that bill collectors ID themselves as such, plus they put the info about non-payment in a person's credit report. Nobody has done so in mine, so nobody is claiming any money from me. The Federal Trade Commission and the Attorney General of my state said that this number belongs to scammers and bad ones at that. Just report them and they'll close them down.

Better to challenge the collector than sit and wonder how it conducts skip tracing.

If you are receiving repeated, misdirected, and/or abusive calls from a third party debt collector, you may find relief in the provisions of the FDCPA, the Federal law which regulates collector behavior and provides you simple tools for your own defense. It grants you control of how you are contacted, and collectors can be sued for their crimes. Learn your rights and first response tactics at FTC-dot-gov. See also your state laws for additional support.
