Caller was a very rude male. Was trying to say person doesn't live here when he yelled at me and hung up
California Jan 30th, 2014
We told these people not to call - which they do every day. We do not owe anyone money - we pay our bills. The person they are looking for does not live here and we are tired of receiving these calls.
They are a collection agency. They have been calling my house for someone who don't live here.I keep telling them that but they still call.
ive been getting these call no stop i used to just let them ring , but now i answer and put the phone near my tv speaker or my music speakers,, they want 2 annoy me so im returning the favor,,,
Funny! I started keeping a log. Beginning Oct.14, the creeps at Asset Acceptance have called my phone 15 times so far. 15 times in a week and 2 days. In 15 times they have not left a single message. They ring the phone, the answering machine picks up, they hang up. The debt they're trying to collect is from someone that moved away more than 3 years ago. The debt is well past the statute of limitations in Texas. It will be kind of fun to see how many times they call and leave no message.
No message, just hang up calls. Caller ID says "unavailable". Had several calls and always no message.
This number has called my phone twice now, when i say hello, nobody says anything.
They've (301-223-0073) called 9 times today and left no message.
they called once a day for a week. Never dealt with them before.
I tell every family member never ever pick up 301-223-0073, they just force to sell health insurance to us.
so even you call us every minute every day, nobody pick it up, it's free incoming call.

Mr. Jeanes, as explained here five short comments behind yours, your comments to the DNC site are misplaced. As explained to Rhonda TWO comments prior to yours, verbal orders *will not work*! As I discussed here ten months ago, you can stop the calls yourself through direct action *on paper*, via USPS Cert Mail. If your rights are violated, you can make AACC pay through lo/no-cost litigation if you keep careful records of all contact. All of this is explained if you simply do your homework rather than sit and stew about the collections business model.
One more time, here is where you can start studying:

So, this is a collection company?... The only one en this universe that I owe is YAHWEH!.....
I just received a call from these people this morning on a very rare DAY OFF!!....
no one answered .. I purposefully picked up the phone because i get great joy out of cursing MFs out who call my home talking BullShhhhhhhT! But, like i said no one responded!..
I hope they call back today before i have to go to my night job... and respond when i answer because i will make whoever is on the end of the line feel SUICIDAL!!!....
The company has been told several times not to call. The National Do Not Call list (https://complaints.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx) has been notified several times. They call and then after 30 seconds, hangup. They are an attritional harrasment business and it is a new technique for those that do not make money in business but take it. That is, they are a sideline of those that make people sick for a living and get theirs that way. ooozers....

Rhonda, AACC will continue to torture you until you get off the phone and get on a paper trail, as I have explained here several months ago. The more you argue with these goons the more they will assume you are a liar trying to ''hide from responsibility'', or some such delusion.

Looking for a Tammy McDonald....they call here a lot and I tell them over and over that this isn't the McDonald residence! So annoying!
By the way, a few weeks ago Asset Acceptance joined the growing list of debt collectors fined by the FTC for consistently unlawful behavior. They took the Number Two slot in highest damage awards. The civil complaint is a virtual catalog of the most common dirty tricks junk debt buyers commit.

B: Blocking and ignoring collector calls does not ''handle'' them any more than a blindfold can ''handle'' a mugger in the alley. You can in fact ''get them to stop calling'', which you would know if you'd taken my advice that's been here for almost a half year. What's more, your trigger finger on the ''delete'' switch could be losing you a tidy payout from potential violations in those phone calls from a collector well known for lawbreaking tactics.
Ann has a solid violation already, receiving at least one call outside the hours specified by the FDCPA. Armitage112 got the very typical collector arrogance, always ready to blame the victim for problems their employers caused.
It should be noted that as non-sales callers, all debt collectors are exempt from filtering out any numbers registered on a no-call list. The FTC never kept this a secret, and practically begged you all to read the linked FAQ at registration time.
Rhode Island Feb 22nd, 2012
This is just a non-stop scam nuisance call.
There's no way to get them to stop calling so here's how I handle it...if I see this name on my caller ID I do not answer at all...ever.
If they leave a message I delete it the second I hear it.

Asset Acceptance is a very unprofessional collection company. I have
requested from them no to call me but they do not listen.

SO RUDE. Called them from work because they kept calling my house and never left a message. When I gave them my home phone number (which is UNLISTED and on every DO NOT CALL list I can think of), they told me they were looking for "Jane Doe". I told them there's no "Jane Doe" at that number and to delete the number from their list. The operator told me, "You sound like you have some anger in your voice. Your anger shouldn't be directed at us, it should be directed at Jane Doe, because she's the one who gave us this number as a contact" then he HANGS UP ON ME. I called back and got a different operator, and I made sure I was sweet as pie with her, and she agreed to remove the number. Let's see how long THAT lasts!

The caller ID states it is Asset Acceptance but when you answer the is no one on the line. If they want to talk to you they need to answer or quit calling altogether.
New Jersey Nov 14th, 2011
3012230073 calls about 3-4 times per day m-f and never leaves a message. the caller id shows name unknown. leave a message fools if you want a call back.
i wonder when occupy wall street, anonymous, lulsec, et al., will take notice of scum like this?
McShizzle, with good documentation you have a killer case against AACC, leading with the bogus ''federal court'' threats and including various deceptive practices and a harassing call pattern. I expect that ''NY'' realizes giving in to a collector's demands does not remove the problem. People entering ''agreements'' with lawbreaking collectors usually find the agency will say and do anything to weasel out, hustle for more and faster payments, falsely blame the consumer for failure to cooperate, and eventually sell off any ''forgiven'' balance to yet another crummy collector.
Meanwhile, Alex Copeland continues his campaign of useless advice made in the face of many consumer protection laws. He's pasted this same remark -- In The Same Irritating Capitalized Manner -- verbatim dozens of times over on various mystery caller threads since at least Summer 2009. Could be a scammer, a debt collector, a sales call, a charity, it doesn't matter to him. One size fits all, no explanations, just the same vague wave to ''these types of calls''.
What's more, he's very wrong. Scam callers are often paid for ''leads'' generated by any hint of response from a call recipient. Debt collectors are more than willing to absorb the minimal cost of running a phone farm when they rake in thousands of dollars daily. Oh, by the way, the increasing adoption of VOIP service makes that operational cost next to nothing. The only ones who ''pay more'' are the consumers who waste their time trying ineffectual tactics.

The Only Way To Stop These Kinds Of Calls Is To Make Them Pay. Always Answer - They Have To Pay For Completed Call. Keep Them Talking As Long As Possible With Fake Info So They Have To Pay More.
Asset acceptance are motherf***** asshole telephone terrorists - they don't care whom they threaten, they just want to threaten anyone they can get a hold of and they do it through different caller IDs including unknown. One of their stunts was perpetrated by "Duane Johnson" who told me I had a case in Federal Court filed against me and said the judge was going to rule against me because I hadn't shown up. This was odd because I don't have any bankruptcies or unpaid debts. Duane Johnson clearly didn't actually have a clue who he was trying to terrorize and neither did the other asshole who called back from Asset Acceptance and pretended like he thought my home line was a lawyer's office. They also gave me a court phone number to make it look like they were gov officials but that turned out to be a bunch of bull**** too. They call my place of residence multiple times a day with different phone numbers and trying to terrorize me and it really pisses me off. Maybe their company should change its name to Jihad Acceptance and I could give Seal Team Six some more asshole terrorist targets to vaporize and do us all a favor.

Scam "debt" collector that will attempt bother you endlessly with calls or otherwise intimidate you until you pay them off to stop. They will also attempt to obtain your SSN.
In the past week, have been called by this number 48 times between 7a-11p (ILLEGAL by the way). The last time they called I spoke to a Duane Johnson, who told me the system was down (yeah, right) and that he could not verify for me WHO exactly they were trying to reach concerning my phone number and that he would get back with me. He never did. I know they are a debt collector but I don't owe ANYONE.
''TO Illinois'': You know personally that AACC, the biggest junk debt buyer around, will simply tuck tail and stop calling if you wait long enough? Or are you dangerously speaking in general about collectors? We tried ignoring one junk debt agency that never sent a dunning letter and was likely skip tracing. They would not go away after one month of daily unanswered calls. Not two months, and not three either. Within 4.5 months, over a whole trimester, they rained down on us a total of 315 calls. That's not a misprint, and we never did determine their purpose.
The smarter move is to revoke call permission early. Send a cease-comm notice via USPS Certified with return card. The FTC and many consumer watchdogs explain how to draft one. This sets a legal landmine, as such a notice is ignored at their peril. By the way, if a debt account in question has your name on it, blocking and ignoring collection contacts is a great way to end up in court as a defendant.

The asked for me then hung up. I never got to talk to anyone.
Don't bother answering and telling them you have no idea who that is - they won't believe you and will keep calling. Just IGNORE any and all calls (turn off your answering machine too - when you know it's a bottom feeder it's amazing how a ringing phone won't bother you!!), they really will give up quickly when no one including an ans machine never answer!
We get this call every day at the same time and today is the first day they called at a different hour and FINALLY left a message. Says it's from Chrisy Wright with Asset Acceptance looking for someone we've never heard of. I guess next time I'll answer since I know who it is and who they are looking for. Maybe they'll finally stop calling, otherwise, call block!
Asset Acceptance, a debt collector. They buy "stale" debt, then try to force you to pay. Anything you pay them stays with them! They have been sued countless times for their conduct. Don't believe ANYTHING they tell you.
