Many calls from this number, never a message. Probably another collection agency trying to collect from someone who had my ph # 6+ years ago, and seems to still give it out. Nice. A-holes on both counts.

I've had the same problem as listed below. Say I owe a debt from 2000, but can't validate and it doesn't show up on my credit report. MAJOR SCAM!!!

Rude obnoxious man, who could not even speak proper English, then he hung up on me when I told him, "I havent had SWBell for over twenty years, so you do not have an overdue account from SWBell for me".

6+ messages from Rhonda Little. I have tried calling this company 3 times to confirm that I am NOT the person they are looking for and they continue to harass me through voice messages. I am ready to take legal action

I like to answer the phone, find out who they want to talk to, I tell them I will get him and out the phone down. A minute or two later I will pick up the phone and say he will be to the phone in just a minute more as he was out in the garage. Then I put the phone down until they hang up. I figure the more of their time I waste, the less chance they will want to call again.

Called 5 times, since started again today. Just picked up phone. Computer message looking for someone no longer here. We'll know to just let them ring. Shows up Michigan call on the ID.
Thanks for your good information. These things need to be stopped.

they called. and i let it go to my answering machine. they had called the previous day and i googled the number and ended up here.

as the lady starting leaving the voice mail she said on the answering machine, that by listening to this message i am acknowleding that i am norma george, this is lisa baker calling about a personal business matter, please call me at ........... i then picked up and said m'am, please never call here again. (i am not norman george for one.) and then she replied, thank you for verifying this is the wrong number. (keep in mind, i never said my real name to her or that it even was the wrong number, even though it was. then she hung up on me) she is real lucky that i don't bitch slap girls.

Here's some guys I've spoke to before, they are legitimate debt collectors, however they are guilty of using the strong-arm tactics we've most likely all seen before.

The call with some personal information (as they have your credit report) and of course they want more.

My big problem with these guys is they won't take no for an answer. So here's the initial info:

Caller ID Info:
Toll Free Call
1-800-772-1413
248-605-0941
(also)
AKA -
773-668-1601 aka Asset Acceptance 1-800-545-9931

The man calling calls himself: James Tatum
When asked, what this was in regards to: Personal Business

Upon the second call today (which I missed) I returned the call and requested a supervisor. They gave me an Account Manager: Dennis Pizza

Report this crap. They have no right to collect debts from over 10 yrs - they keep calling my number for my mother, for a bill she had over 12 yrs ago. I've told them countless times that they have the wrong number. Write your attorney general:

Automated Debt Collection Calls. Since the caller (a Computer) cant validate my debt or answer questions. I figure it is a prank call. No live person on line. If they dont have time for me I sure as H__! will not wait for them!

debt collection agency. They buy old (noncollectable) debt for pennies oon the $100 and and try to collect. They are trying to collect on a debt from 1984. I have no ideal who the company is or what the debt is for. My attorney said its past the statued of limitations anyway.so DON'T talk to them or you could pay when you don't have too.

They called me trying to collect a 13yr old debt that was paid to the customer. I have an outstanding credit rating and certainly don't owe 181.00 to a phone company from 1994. I could pay it out of change in my bedside table, but I don't owe the debt. Ask for proof to be sent to you, and it'll never happen.

Ask them to tell you your SSN. They'll only have the last 4 digits, and tell them they are incorrect...they'll take you out of their system and stop calling.
Edward

They called saying I owed a huge amount for something I never had 12 years ago. This place is a joke! It is funny that when you call and they "transfer you" the same voice just a different name. Go figure!
What a joke

It seems that this is a debt collection agency that calls looking for your neighbors! They asked for one of my neighbors, who no longer lives in the area. I reamed them out because I do not wish to be harrassed about other people's debt!

I do not know this phone # and they left a message saying it was an important call but did not inform me what this call was about I think it is a scam cause I have never registered this number as mine.

These idiots called me about a debt that was 10 years old. By law, if you tell them to take you out of their system, they need to abide by this, if they call back, report them to the Michigan Attorney General's office.

Has an old address, maiden name, wrong place of employment but has a correct ss#... We have an outstanding credit report and if I owed anything I think I would know. Our local news channel shows this exact same ploy as a SCAM!!!! Do not give out any info! If they cannot tell you upfront what the phone call is about, hang up.

This agency is very tricky because they call you and then the call switches so that you call them back and end up paying for the call out of your own pocket.
