These 2 numbers are not in service: 1-240-249-7501
1-240-249-7503
I informed them that I was contacting the FTC and the California Attorney General. Said he had the wrong number and hung up.
These 800 numbers ARE in service: 1-800-678-7720
1-800-830-2793
This is what I did: Dialed the numbers, gave them no information other than my phone number. Found out who they were looking for and informed them that I was contacting the FTC, FCC, and the California Attorney-General. Apparently, that was enough as they informed me they had a "wrong number" and hung up.
We'll see. Meanwhile, I'm filing the complaints. Isn't the internet wonderful?

1. W&A's 800-830-2793 phone number is ALREADY listed on the "National
Do Not Call Registry" list" - yet no one can stop these HARASSING PHONE CALLS TO PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT INVOLVED IN THEIR DEBT COLLECTION EFFORTS. That is the number they apparently leave when they call to
harass people -- that 800-830-2793 phone number is stated on their
recorded message that they left for me, and apparently others who have
listed emails are listing the same phone number.
2. Numerous people (at least those that took the time to post an email)
are being harassed by Wolpoff & Abramson and are begging them to stop
their harassing, unfounded and undocumented calls. (See all the links I
pasted in below).
3. W&A are probably representing themselves as a law firm -- can the
Maryland /Montgomery State Bar be brought in on this to pull their
Licenses. It has been confirmed below that 3 of the 4 individuals listed have

State of Maryland has been told that I have no knowledge of the person that Wolpoff & Abramson law firm (located in Rockville, MD) has been calling my home asking about for OVER ONE YEAR. In the beginning a person would call, I would politely explain to the caller over and over that they had the wrong number. No one by the name they are asking for lived at this number and I did not know this person, and I had my phone number for years -- no one else uses it. Now they have a recorded announcement asking for this person that I have no connection to or knowledge of. That announcement comes in all hours of the day and night onto my answer machine -- at night it wakes me.



I have a cassette tape with a copy of the harassing recorded announcement
that I have been receiving. I would be happy to send it to you. Just tell me where to send it. Can someone stop these criminal acts immediately

Colection agency named Walpoff & Abramson or W&A, calling for an unknown name or person during the last 5 months. I never answer because I changed my phone to a fax machine. Is there anything we can do to stop this annoying situation? They also use 800-678-7720,
240-249-7501, 240-249-7503,800-830-2793 and 301-882-9977. God bless such class of people.

Best thing to do is either totally ignore and not pick up (though they will continue to call for months) or send them one of those Do Not Call letters that can be found on the internet. Once they receive one of those from you specifically spelling out that they are NOT to contact you at home or work by phone, they are supposed to cease phone contact. Usually they don't want to waste a stamp to write much less have something in writing you can possibly use against them.

I've been getting 2 calls per day from 240-249-7503 for the last few weeks looking for someone with the same last name as me. Having read through the posts here I am convinced that these people are scammers or con artists and not really a collection agency.
The only thing I can think of is that last year I checked my wife credit report and found that she owed about $250 on a Bank of America credit card before we got married and she moved without a forwarding address. We contacted Bank of America and told them we want to pay it back. The bank told us that they no longer have any record of that debt. In January 2007 we received a collection letter from National Debt Collection Bureau wanting us to settle the debt for $271 and I immediately sent them a check for that amount. They returned the check and said they had sold the debt to another collector. A few months later we got a letter from another collector this time wanting over $400. I sent them the check for that amount but I was already thinking that I was being scammed. Fortunately they cashed the check but I have a feeling that was not the end of it.

Looked it up and found it was Wolpoff and Abramson, a bottom of the barrel debt collector. I don't owe anyone and apparently it doesn't do any good to be on the "Do Not Call List" as I have both my cell and home number registered. Is there nothing we can do?

I have these guys calling me, and how I got onto their dialer is a total question. My credit rating is good, I have no credit cards, and I am the president of a regional bank that covers 6 states. I am guessing that I have equity enough and cash enough to cover any bill that falls my way. I have talked with my Attourney who sees no deficit in my financial matters. How I have gotten on the calling list of these parasitic hobegongs is beyond me. Perhaps I played Poker with one of them in a drinking Foray in Maryland, and one of them is angered at losing. Just my guess. Alcoholism is a terrible thing Mr Wolpoff

Count yourself lucky if you can just ignore the phone calls from these clowns. They are a huge, huge shotgun debt collector network covering the whole country with random calls and having no idea who they are calling. Some part of your name, address, phone number or other information floating around out there is similar to something in one of their debtor files. That is all it takes. Do not expect to correct their errors with anything short of a law suit. Their due diligence with respect to FDCPA compliance is non-existant. They don't care, you are just a statistical value to them...one that might pay them for no other reason than to go away or not sue you. It has nothing to do with who you really owe debts to. Don't let them push you around. If they go any further than annoying phone calls that you can ignore, like file a law suit against you, get yourself a NACA attorney immediately and conter-sue them. Respond vigoursly to every court date. Fight them tooth and nail. This is a very scary bad organization that is a true perversion of the profession of debt collection and needs to be stopped one victim at a time. Read Bud Hibbs' rundown on them at http://www.budhibbs.com/debtcollectorpages/wolpoff_abramson_bud.htm

This is ridiculous ! I am on the "Do Not Call Registry". What good does that do. This company has called me at least once a day and sometimes twice, including Sundays for the last 3 weeks. They ignore requests to remove my phone no. from their lists. I no longer pick up when they call. This is getting very annoying.

Received 3 calls so far today, (10/10). I do not pick up phone for these calls. I am on the do not call registry. Why are these calls allowed?

Recorded message asks for "Musa"(sp?). Says that if Musa isn't at this number to hang up and delete the message. Got 1st call a couple of weeks ago. 2nd and 3rd calls were both today (10/1).
