They keep calling me about an estranged daughter who apparently is in financial trouble. I haven't had contact with her in over a year. I am a senior citizen and my husband is on Hospice. I have an exceptional credit rating and do not even have my daughters #. I told them this and said I wouldn't give it to them if I had it.The last woman that called asked me why. I said she is still my daughter and I wouldn't give it to her if I had it. The first time they called the man said they would keep calling everyday. I said I wouldn't talk to them. I have caller ID and won't pick up the phone anymore if they call, but I don't see why I should have to deal with this. My blood pressure is extremely high and this aggravation doesn't help.

We expect they are a collection agency. We have received a call from them asking for my husband's ex-wife. Who knows how they linked her to this number as the number has never been in her name, nor is her last name the same as ours. I gave them her cell phone # and home#. This is the second company of this kind to call us asking for her.

In NOv,2206 I was contacted about a bill for $5288(owed to Sams's Club) by a very rude Ms. Amos. She demanded that I immediately choose one of three options for payment. (My husband took care of the bills and I did not know anything about this.) I asked for 24 hrs. to speak with my husband who was out of town but she would not grant me this. She said if I didn't choose then I should get an attorney. I chose to take one of the 3 options, which was a settlement of $3800. Since then I have been harrassed with calls from collections agenies--Union Fidelity, a David Gallagher from somewhere, Academy Collection Service in PA, another Sara or Jan from somewhere, and now 2 more calls-- saying I still owe $1488. They say this is reflecting negatively on my credit report.

I've had an extremely RUDE woman named Ms. Amos call & twist my words & demand payment (in excess of $5000) to be paid instantly. They call our house & leave nasty messages to call back at the 281 number. We are so broke we don't have long distance anymore so I had to go to our neighbors house to call (BIG MISTAKE!!!) and now the lady is calling my neighbor demanding that she pay our debt. I agreed to pay the money when we got back on our feet (my husband was hospitalized so our money is gone & now they are trying to take our house from missed payments) but she isn't interested in working out a payment plan or anything. She's hung up on my 4 times, calimed she was charging off our account & I will be arrested for non payment (of a $4000 debt which I never said I wouldn't pay) I looked on our credit report & she already charged it off so now I want to know why she keeps calling. We are now contacting a bankrupcy attorny b/c 1/3 of our debt is ($73,000) due to fees, not the ammount we charged or actually owed. I have 2 babies & a sick husband, I'm worried about loosing our house & get about 64 phone calls a day from the debt collectors. I don't believe in bankrupcy (I think you should pay what you owe) but the harassment & overblown fees are insaine. It's not right.

This is an Collection Agency who can be abusive. They use automated system to dial your number & messages become increasingly ominous. After 6 mos. of ignoring their calls, they have stepped up their game by leaving a message late at night mentioning extremely urgent "business matter linked to your social". They Caller ID shows "Unknown" but I recognized not only the voice but the name "Williams" they used. If you answer, there's a pause while the system switches over to a live person, and that's where you can hang up. If you talk to them, record 'em.

Called asking for a Ricky Gilbert. No idea who this is. Each time they call, the person at the other end just hangs up when I tell him they have the wrong number. I try telling them to take me off the list, but they are very rude and hang up before I have the chance to finish speaking. It is starting to get really annoying as they are calling me almost every night.

This company have called my number several times a day while I'm at work. The few times they have called at night I have answered and there is no one on the line. Now I have gotten my phone bill and I'm being charged for the daytime unanswered calls from the company of UFC.

This is a collection agency, but they were very nice with me. I called them back right away. It is true that their message about "the SSS" is weird.

This company has called me over a dozen times looking for the previous owner of my phone number. I've told them every time that they have the wrong number, but they keep calling back, up to 5 times per day. They are also quite rude.

They are a collection agency - now I am reporting them to the BBB. Some woman left a message saying mother f**ker and she swears to God and said if she has to leave another mother ******* message. I have it on my answering machine..I called the company back and talked to a Manager, now the Director is trying to call me.

I also received a message saying " I do not usually get involved in these matters, but since it concerns your SS # I wanted you to be aware so that you aren't blindsided later on"

This is a collection agency. whoever they are asking for owes a debt to some company. I know they work with GE money. They cant talk about debts on an answering machine cause its illeagle which is why that lady said that. They do harrass and are very ignorant people.

I have calls on my answering machine all the time, asking for a Joseph White.
Don't know who he is, never heard of him.
If I am ever home when they call, I will say what I said to another heavy caller asking for the same guy: "I am not him, he does not live here and if you use your computer properly, you can Google the phone number you called and find out it isn't Joseph White. Now stop calling me or I will call the FCC since I have your number"

UFC has been calling several times a day for a couple of months now. I finally decided to pick up the phone and find out who they are...No response when I said "hello" could hear lots of background noise, sounded like a large call center of some sort.

I've been receiving calls from a Ms. Hawkins of Universal Fidelity for the past 2 weeks on my answering machine, asking for a person who does not live at my address (but we happen to have the same last name). She never says why she calls because federal laws prohibit her from saying on an answering machine, but insists it is urgent. When I try to call later, I get an answering machine of an organization called GE Capital(ol?).
I did leave a message on their answering system that they have the wrong person and that there is no one by that name at my address, but they are still calling.

They have called several times for a relative who does not live in this household. They have not identified themselves, aside from someone named "Jennifer". I suspect a collection agency, but do not know that for sure.

This is a collection agency. They have been harassing my household about a deceased relative. I have filed a complaint.
