These people called at 4:30 am in the morning, I thought it was an emergency phone call from a family member. I told them I never heard of the person they are looking for. This has been going on for 2 years. They are rude and they call me a liar. I hung up on them they called back again at 5 am then again at 5:15 am then again at 6 am. I am going to contact a lawyer to put a stop to this harrassment of these brainless wonders.

They called ... I answered ... they wanted to talk to someone I don't even know! Then they said it was personal.

I changed from Verizon to Comcast over 3 months ago. I've had calls from all over USA, several debt collectors, pharmacies and private landline and cell numbers. Not 1 private regular landline or cell has left voicelmail so of COURSE I'm notreturning their calls. Even the POLICE have called, and I returned the call. I, too, have tried to tell PRA the man they named no longer has this number! SO I have blocked their numbers,and now they've used another, that I just blocked. I could change my number but put a nice gospel message on my answer machine. IF they listen, that's what they hear. That probably aggravates them even MORE but since they don't believe what I tell them, I give them another truth they might reject!

Might be nice if people would cite their sources. Cobra cribbed that entire comment from a fake blog shilling for paper mill Lexington Law, which purports to ''repair'' credit reports. Poisonous and faulty trade lines are of concern, but hardly the only threats presented by trashy collectors like PRA.

I've already linked to the FDCPA material a couple weeks ago. Here's the official home of FCRA:
http://www.ftc.gov/os/statutes/fcrajump.shtm

Challenging bad entries on credit reports is often a slow and vexing process, but it can be done without a middleman once you gain insight as to how reporting works and which legal tools are handy. Lexington is of course shy on detail and wants to scare people into becoming clients. Good advice and research can be found on the forums Credit InfoCenter and DebtorBoards, for no cost other than your time.

Ramona is correct. PRA has a ridiculous volume of phone numbers to throw at your few. The experience of ''Amazed'' is very typical when facing a chronic lawbreaker like Portfolio Recovery. The reps will insist you're a liar until you magically produce the alleged debtor and help them score commissions. Thus verbal demands to stop calling are futile.

To a ''not me'' case I always recommend putting the agency on notice, just as you would if you were the target and the debt claim was invalid. Send a cease-comm notice via USPS Certified with return card. The FTC and many consumer watchdogs explain how to draft one. This will set a legal landmine, as such a notice is ignored at their peril.

Learn how to exercise your FDCPA rights as an alleged debtor at FTC-dot-gov.
