A collector has been calling me repeatedly with a similar number and the city in the caller ID rather than the company name. I think hmmm..its close by...pick it up and its a collector....cute...

This is a collector. They use a local number so you think its a neighbor and when you call the number back its the collection agency. If you answer the phone, you'll get a long pause as the dialer connects you to a call center agent who is ready to try and bleed you. The agent wont identify, rather they will just ask for the person they are seeking. A deceptive strategy to get you to answer.
