Calls but you can never make out who is calling and why. They always have a really bad collection. Won't talk with my husband, asks for me but I refuse to give these people any information. I called them back and just got a recording.
District of Columbia Apr 05th, 2012
These people keep calling me looking for an "Amanda" I have told them there has never been anyone by that name at this phone number. I told him that I already told them that and I said quit calling me. the gentleman on the phone got very rude with me and said that he has never called and they only tried calling a couple of times and maybe it was a different agency calling, I said yeah right all collections call for someone that has never existed here. How do I get these people to quit calling.
Scumbag bitch called my 89 year old dad insinuating she was with the FBI and that they have a warrant for my arrest. I do not lived there for nearly 50 years. Will be reporting this harrassment to the FTC.

let me tell you what these people are doing to these employees to get them to be as harsh as they are. some of the people you are hearing from are calling from the second story of a building that has no air and no windows that open. close to 100 people and 100 computers with no circulation. it is like trying to breath through a thick layer of cotton. they actually tell their employees "if you collect this much you can go home." the employees have trouble breathing and sweat all day long. they smell alone would make most sick. they do give them water. thats like asking for a lung and you handing me a kidney. now days in the ohio area you are luck to even have a job so these people due what it takes to feed their families. you can't fault them for it. yes everyone this is happening right here in the usa.
This guy named John Grable is calling for an employee in my department and slanders the person right over the phone to me. He has an indian accent and I doubt that is his real name. Anyone else? A real piece of work.....
Caller ID shows N C O Financial. I dialed number back and that is how they answer.
I called this number back. It is N C O financial
I called number back. It is N C O Financial
It's the number for an employee of NCO Financial. They are a debt collection agency, and one of their major contracts is the DPP or Star Card. They call non-stop because they want their money. They ask for your information because they want to verify who they're speaking with. They do not give out the reason they're calling to those other than the individual with the account because they are not allowed to in most states by law. They do not leave messages for a similar reason. When you call the number back and they ask for your SSN on their voicemail, it is because it is most people's account number and more people know their SSN than their account number. When they call you back, they would like to have your information account up in front of them. It is just like when you call your bank and they want your account information so that they "may better assist you."
Caller on this number identified himself as NCO Financial, a collections agency. Reverse lookup shows an unpublished number in Dublin, OH.

They leave a message saying they are a debt collection company.
I've been getting daily calls at night from this phone number, asking about my husband. They wouldn't say what they want and it's kind of scary. I wish they would stop bothering me. I'm on the do not call registry but it doesn't help.

I have been getting these calls for weeks. No one is ever there. Last night there was a person. He was looking for my ex husband. They told me he had me down as a reference. They wouldn't tell me for what. My Ex husband Died in Columbus, Ohio in 2006. It was very unsettling to say the least. Had me wondering if he was still alive. I think after finding this site, I can rest that one in peace.

I am so sick of these stupid ass people calling for someone that used to live at this adress.And when i tell them that Im not them,and how did they get this number,they give me attitude and completly lie and tell me that this was listed as there contact #.I HAVE HAD THIS # for 5 years,and only when i moved in this house is when i started getting these harassing phone calls.I tell them to stop calling or remove my # from there list ,and they still keep calling.What do i have to do to get these GIANT ASS HOLES to stop calling?
they harass people and they have no professional manners. when they cant identify themselves they say they are trying to help you. but that is a lie... so dont believe them... they will steal your social security and commit identity theft to getyou to speak to them... dont give them any information.. they are bad news.... they like to ask you all kind of information to get you to tell them your personal information... they are not helping you they are stealing your information....
Seems that OSI is now owned by NCO. Call Consumer Hotline, Phone: 800-550-9619
to leave your comments.
Same story as above -they've been calling multiple times a day, leave no message or a number which has a recording where they ask you to leave your name and SS#. I don't have any unpaid debts but had a couple mix-ups this spring due to a changed credit card and some automatic billing, all of which has now been fixed. Maybe they get their info just by randomly reading credit reports?

Called for someone I did not know. Say's person left my name and number as a reference
California Jul 02nd, 2008
I just called back every # on this page. I am sure they know all these #'s have been given out because they have either changed them or they have made recordings pick up each one. All I can get is a recording wanting my name, ssn and phone #. I gave my name and # that's it. I told them if they continued to call and not leave messages I was going to report them for harassment.
Calls every morning around 8ish and leaves no message. When I call the # back I am on hold for an hour+ and just give up after that. They have no reason for calling me I just got the # a month ago. It's getting really annoying.
These people are calling about defaulted student loans, using the name OSI education Services. They also have people in that building who collection on medical bills, military credit card bills, and past due but not yet defaulted student loans.
I looked-up Outsourcing Solutions, Inc. in Dublin, OH in the Yellowpages.com site and got their mailing address. Here is the link to their YellowPages.com listing, just copy and paste it into your browser.
When I did a reverse lookup for 614-717-4395, it came back as unlisted, but the city is Dublin, OH which is the same city and state as the YellowPages listing, so I am assuming it's the same people.
If they call you, go to the link above and leave a negative review for that company. See how they like a little negative publicity with their breakfast.
This call arrived via my cell phone. The caller from this number did not leave a message. I called the number from another phone and the company name is OSI Educational Services.

OSI, the 2nd largest debt collection agency in the country had recently filed for bankruptcy protection. They couldn't pay their bills, but want you to send them your money! Talk about poetic justice and irony!! I hope the other debt collector/predatory scum gave the OSI owners the same harassment that OSI and their band of collectors have subjected the American consumer to. OSI began closing their branch offices and may not survive. As with all large agencies, they have GREAT difficulty in complying with FDCPA and FCRA requirements. The problem with them is credibility. You can NOT take what they say or report as accurate. They MUST be held accountable for their reporting and collection activities.

Many times the debt are junk debts that can not be collected because they are too old or the debt has already been paid to the originial creditor. You have the right to choose not to deal with any collection organization and make agreements with the orginial creditor. Some organizations, like hospitals, even have programs that will pay off your debt or reduce the debt based on income you can also check with SSI and the state for assistance with medical bills (even recent past medical bills). If you are having problems with medical insurance companies, contact your state's insurance commission, tell them who your insurance agency is and fill a complaint, get a copy of the complaint, send to the insurance company and to all the medical creditors, tell them you are working on getting them paid, then offer to pay the something, even if it is only $5.00 a month, but DO NOT DEAL WITH COLLECTION AGENCIES. TELL THE ORIGINAL CREDITOR THAT YOU WILL ONLY DEAL WITH THEM AND NOT A COLLECTION AGENCY, SEND THE LETTER TO THEM CERTIFIED. TELL THEM YOU WILL ONLY DEAL WITH THEM-THE ORGINIAL CREDITOR (NO MATTER WHO THEY ARE) IN WRITING. end part 2
OSI/Outsouring SOL - This company practice shady and illegal debt collection, don't talk to them, get everything you can in writing, keep a journal of their calls and activties, send them certified letters and fax them at 614-791-4506
to tell them to stop contacting you. This company itself has filed bankruptcy, yet, calls and harrasses individuals, businesses and HR departments trying to get personal information about employeess (which could get the employer sued). This company tells employees that they are going to sue other employees--totally illegal. end part 1
This company calls our business wanting information about an employee, we keep telling them we do not supply private information about employeess yet they keep calling. We are going to file a complaint against the with the State's attorney's office and if need to get a restraining order against them. They theaten our employee who is on medical leave by leaving threats with other employees that they are going to sue or ganish their wages. Lets hope Hillary gets elected so she can put an end to these kind of practices.
This is a 3rd party collection agency called OSI Education Services. The callback number 800-735-1998
is for collectors trying to get you to pay off your defaulted Edfund (california Student Aid Commission) student loan
Now they are really ramping up, calling every day a couple of times and they even call my cell.
They no longer leave messages. They used to ask for a Chandra. I only answered once and told them no Chandra here. They stopped for a while and started calling again. But no more messages.
How do I make them stop???????

The caller was calling to get a student loan payment.
Constantly harrass my grandparents' by calling from 8 am until 11 pm every day after being asked NOT to call. They are calling for me and I don't even live there. The "business matter" is apparently regarding a student loan which I paid already. They call my grandparents' house but refuse to tell them what the business matter is and refuse to abide by the numerous requests to stop the harassment.
New Jersey Jan 23rd, 2008
The place is saying yhat we need to give them money and not stop calling my home
Just a note. Student loans all paid for more than 3 years now. (And on time payments to boot!) So I have no clue what they're after.
Maybe they just want to convince me I still owe them?
Maybe someone put my name as a reference too... although I agree: how'd they get my current number?
Seems they're mean anyway... if you call them back. I don't plan to call back. Don't know who they are based on their voicemail.
Must be a persistent wrong number, eh? ;-)
Had to google search the name and number to figure out who they are... On my callerID, specifies that the number dialing me is a residential line 614-717-4395 for O Sol. Which means it's a home business? Whoever they are, in this day and age, not identifying yourself promises no return call. Too many wacko calls even if on a do-not-call list! I get calls in spanish... not that I know what they're saying! And I have no outstanding debts requiring a collector!
If the collections agencies have decided high pressure meanness doesn't work... What makes them think placid non information will work in a time where identity theft is rampant? Why not compassion and identification? Just a thought.
Anyhow, if I missed a bill 10 years ago, they'll just have to try it the straight way.
This number called at 8:30 in the morning and the message consisted of someone breathing, typing and saying nothing. Fascinating.

PAY YOUR BILLS!!!!!! LOSERS!!!!
i get 3,4 or 5 calls a day with threats etc. its a debt collector.
called today// 10-10-07 left no message/
looked this up... we are well over 60// havent been in any school in over 40 yrs. never had a student loan and all children are adults that got their education via military so no student loans for them,, have no idea who they are looking for but based on previous comments do believe they are scam ....
Called and hung up.
from all the previous posts. they think i owe them some money... he he he... wait till i give them a ration for calling at 10:15 at night...
Outsourcing SOL goes by many names but is actually Miller Collection Agency based in Dublin, Ohio. Or at least that's where they call me from. They're also known as OSI Educational Services and I'm assuming they represent the hospital I owe 50 bucks to. They called Friday and I answered the phone saying, "Miller Collection Agency, may I help you?" He said, "Yeah is a TJ Ryan there?" I said, "We're also known as Outsourcing SOL and OSI Educational Services." He said, "Sorry, I must have the wrong number." LOL. They haven't called since, but I'm sure they will under some other phony name. Bring it on!!!
They keep calling me, asking for a James... Gerald said that he would take my # off of the list... I can only hope
rude, argumentative. They try to keep you engaged in conversation in order to get info. I was probably used as a referral on a student loan application. I am a relative of the person they were calling about. Have not had contact for over a year and a half.
They called aske for someone told them she was sleepind and the asshole on the phone said to wake her up this was an important perosnal matter. We hung up on them They call all the time harrassing us. I think we need to form a civil lawsuit to get these damn people to stop calling all hours of the day and night.

OSI Student loan services, claim to be able to settle your student loans DON'T BELIEVE THEM never give anything in writing. I had to get a lawyer. They called my work.
Called numerous times asking for "Alicia". No one by that name at this number but they keep calling. I filed them with Do Not Call registry.
I received a call this morning ... asked if I knew where an old (and no longer associated with) friend. Said she put my name as a reference on an application. I asked when she filed the application, he said 1999. I have not spoken to her since 1995. I've been trying to call back to get more info but keep getting busy signal. I have moved to 3 different states and married since 1995, how did they find me??????
just missed a call from this number, didn't leave a message. I just read everyone else's comments, I do have a student loan but I have never even come close to being late on a payment, so why in the world would a collections agency call me?
His name is David C. Uttley. He is 48 years old from Columbus Ohio and is a debt collector for OSI, Inc. OSI's hired thugs will use any method you can imagine to try to intimidate you. Here's what most people don't know: THE ONLY THING A DEBT COLLECTOR CAN DUE IS HARASS YOU!! THEY ARE NOT LAWYERS AND CAN NOT SUE YOU. THEY WON'T SUE YOU BECAUSE THEN THEY WOULD HAVE TO GIVE UP THEIR PERCENTAGE OF COLLECTIONS: HERE'S WHAT YOU DO: TELL THEM CLEARLY (OR BETTER YET, FAX THEM @ 614-791-4506
AND TELL THEM "Pursuant to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Section 15 USC 1692(c), demand is hereby made that you cease and desist and and all further communication with me." THEN THEY MUST CEASE AND DESIST. VIOLATIONS OF THIS PROVISION OF THE FAIR DEBT COLLECTION ACT ARE PUNISHABLE BY A $1000 FINE PER VIOLATION. SINCE THEY ARE TOO COWARDLY TO ANSWER THE NUMBER YOU SEE ON CALLER ID -- CALL THEM AT 877-315-1990
....BUT I FYOU FAX A CEASE AND DESIST I GUARANTEE IT WILL ALL BE OVER. SOMEONE MIGHT SUE YOU SOMEDAY, BUT IT WON'T BE UTTLEY. IT IS ALSO A VIOLATION OF THE ACT TO THREATEN TO SUE WHEN YOU ARE NOT A LAWYER. IT IS ALSO A VIOLATION OF THE ACT TO DEMAND MORE THAN THE BALANCE DUE (WHICH OSI HAS BEEN KNOWN TO DO).
have called repeatedly over the past few weeks and i thought it was a telemarketer, but eventually answered to say quit calling. person began asking questions about my sister and her personal info. when i asked what the questions were in reference to he said that my sister put me as a reference on an educational application. i called my sister and she verified that it was untrue. the man outright lied to me!! do not answer this number and if you do do not give out any info!!

Called at 7:30 am. Said my name and then immediately started asking me to tell them my social security number. Became irate when I refused to disclose personal information. Did verify that they had my name correct but they refused to tell me the nature of this call without my telling them my social. Lawsuit coming if it continues.
They keep calling my house phone and sometimes leave a message for a Joyce but I just anwsered and they asked for my boyfriend but hung up when I asked who was calling.
Won't tell me what they want....ask for the wrong name.
Called and ask for my son, urgent, & to call back. The caller ID show Outsourcing. They called several times a day approx 3 months ago, then started up again. I do not answer the phone.

I just reported this guy today to the federal trade commission - you should all do the same - the guy who I talked to Daniel Street, was badgering, threatening and demeaning. He called regarding a supposed student loan my husband had and wanted personal information that we refused to give. That is when he got mean. Please do call the FTC and report people like this...
its OSI calling about student loan payments.
They called asking for my husband's ex wife, in her maiden name
has called three times in the last hour; don't even want to answer based on hassles other ppl on whocalled.us have gone thru!
These people call daily and leave messages.My sister had answered and talked to one of the supervisiors who asked my sister what her thing may have been about? She didn't wanna answer but knew it was about a daycare bill.They started going on about 'is it a check'? .. and my sister was like no,its daycare.. then my sister was like 'why,are you representing them',and the lady goes 'Oh you're so smart',and hanged up!

They called and my wife answered and they said they were looking for (so in so)which happens to be my bosses name. They were very vague and hard to understand. It sounded like they were on speaker phone. They gave this # to call them back. 1-800-236-3100
ext. 5662. The # that showed up on our I.D. was the 614-717-4395.
Connecticut Jun 13th, 2007
calls every day once or more and asks to speak to me regarding a student loan. I actually got a letter in the mail stating that I had a very urgent voicemail wating for me and to call that number and use ext. 5637. Every time I try and call them its busy. I think there should be something about this that we can do.
These people call at least once a day...if not more. All that comes up on my cell is the number...no company ID. I don't generally answer calls from numbers I do not recognize but have answered a couple of times and gotten no response to my repeated "hello"s. They never leave a message. No threats here...yet...just annoyance.
Now I'm recieving another Vonage call, now there is three numbers: 262-646-3036
and 407-275-0841. This is getting out of hand.
These Companies are a pain in the rear. This number is the offical site and 262-646-3036
is Vonage Phone Service, the same Company. I'm going to give them a call and tell them to take me off their calling list.
Threats from the people(women) calling regarding student loan default. Claim to be able to put a lien on husbands vehicle.Said for me to watch and see, Very rude and unprofessional, they have no idea that on any given day the shoe could be on the other foot. would they want the same treatment. Also who told them that their job was so secure that they could treat people so unprofessional.
I received two phones calls on my cell phone. I only give that number for personal calls, not business. Each call, the personal asked about a student loan. I asked for them to send me a account statement or any documents that pertain to me. Instead of agreeing, they threaten to garishness my pay. Kind of shady. Very rude.
Someone has called my two business lines 6 times a day all hours of the morning through night despite being told not to call my business liness. Calls have also been made to my home phone, why I do not know.
Called for my husband's student loan. Had all personel info they could. Wanted to know our checking account number! Said it was for a Sallie Mae loan. Which we have been paying monthly for over a year! Said it was in default and they would garnish dh's paycheck! Told them go right ahead I would see them in court!
this is a collections agency in OH. Will call 15 times a day.
This company has been calling my number for 2 years looking for someone I have never heard of. After ignoring the calls for almost 2 years, I finally answered the last 10 calls and told them they have the wrong number, but they still continue to call!!! It is so annoying!!!!
This company's name is Outsourcing SOL. Doesn't SOL stand for **** out of luck?
Called and asked for my son who no longer lives here. When I asked what it regarded she asked if I was his spouse. When I said I was his mother she said it was a personal matter.She geve me a call back nomer of 866-671-7304

Called me and said I'd been put down as a contact number for a friend whom I'm sad to say I lost contact with 15 years ago. Who keeps records that long? They were trying to located his whereabouts, and I have no idea how they found my location since I've moved several times since then.

Called my cell, left message for "Francesca" saying it was very important that I return their call. Left some 800 number as a callback.
left no message so i don't know what it was
Called 8:10 am. Woman left me a voice message.Was completely unable to understand her name. I recently was unable to pay on a medical bill or 2. I looked up the number and saw a few times that it was a collections agency and one that it was type of scam.
These people told me that they were OSI Educational and that they had an application from me that listed my phone as a contact #. The woman tried to dodge all my questions, while fishing for information about me. Very shady company with questionable practices. Don't trust them. Make them communicate via letter if they have a legit reason to contact you.
A David Uttley keeps calling from this number at my home and work, leaving 877-315-1970
