There is little I could add here to the learned remarks of "Annoyed" from April 2009. A few states have some form of "repose" law, which renders a debt legally nonexistent once it passes SoL. North Carolina passed an Act in September 2009 which calls past-SoL collection or litigation "unfair". This sort of provision frankly needs to be echoed nationwide, since by the time a debt account has changed a few hands its chain of title is usually too distorted to have standing anyway.

Make the FDCPA your new pal and learn how to exercise your rights as an alleged debtor at FTC-dot gov.

They and their loved ones will suffer for their behavior. I personally dealt with them and set up a trap, If they try to scam my bank account...they will meet me personally. They will be blessed 100 times over for their choices and it won't be pretty, but they will KNOW who they should not have wronged and who is punishing them. I won't break any laws, and my hands will be clean. They will recognize their blessing by midnight tonight if they wrong anyone.
This is for NAFS and anyone like them.

This is a collection agency that will keep calling and leaving voicemails about an urgent matter. I called back and unforunately now they won't stop calling. Don't answer this calls as they are rude and they hang up on you before you finish talking. I would look at www.budhibbs.com for help. Also, these collectors call on past debt that they no longer can collect, if in Texas, since the statue of limitations is more than 4 yrs.

National Action Financial Services Agrees to Pay $85,000 to Settle Charges of Using Outlaw Pressure Tactics
12/19/2007

National Action Financial Services Inc. has agreed to pay $85,000 to settle charges of using outlaw pressure tactics. The company was the subject of 90 complaints within the last three years, about one third of them from within the state. The agreement, in addition to the $85,000 in fines and costs, requires NAFS to reform its collection practices in line with state and federal laws.

They have a bad reputation.

Call them and tell them leave a message letting them know that if they do not stop the calls, you will contact the FCC to file formal charges.

"Solution" and "me" are uninformed. The WORST thing you can do is call them. Collectors are not out to protect your rights. They are there to collect money from anyone who will hand it over out of fear...including people who don't owe, relatives, people with the same last name...they don't care who it is if they can scare them into sending money! Anything that is said over the phone is not enforceable - they can outright lie and there is nothing you can do. Visit the boards mentioned to learn how to contact them in writing to verify the debt and amount before you decide how to handle it.

By definition "junk debt" is debt that is purchased from companies who have charged off the debt and/or given up on collecting it. Often it has passed the time limit to successfully win a lawsuit and has already fallen off the person's credit report (7 years from date of last delinquency). For the record, you CAN get sued over a debt no matter how many years have passed. There are many uninformed individuals who end up with default judgments against them (which stay on your credit report for a minimum of 10 years) because they are sued over debt and do not show up in court - out of fear, because they weren't properly served, or because they mistakenly think they automatically don't owe it because the statute of limitations has passed in their state. Your defense is the statute of limitations, but you MUST show up and offer that defense to win the case.

Statute of limitations vary by state. While the negative information may fall off of your credit report after 7 years, the statute of limitations is anywhere from 3 to 8 years depending on the state you live in, the state you lived in when the debt went delinquent, or the state you lived when the account was opened. Most states consider credit card debt an "open ended account". But in some states a collector can file suit claiming it falls under written contract law, which can be as long as 15 years in some states. There are many junk debt buyers (collection agencies) who illegally "re-age" accounts on your credit report to keep it there indefinitely and falsely stretch the numbers of years they have to sue and to keep the negative information on your report and harming your FICO score.

Be informed. Do not let phone calls intimidate you. Let the machine get it, wait for the follow up letter, put everything in writing, keep accurate records, and contact your states attorney general for assistance. Do your research and know your rights.

The best way to deal with them is to call them and try to work out your problem. If they won't work with you two options - 1 hang up (which does nothing for you) 2 contact either compliance department or the orginal creditor you owe money to. But remember trying to work out your bills are stressful situations. Also to correct this comment "Junk debt buyers who buy debt that is past the statute" 1st the only junk debt is fraud accounts, and 2 past the statute only means you can not get sued over the bill, However you are still responsable for paying the bill.
Solution
 Mar 26th, 2009
maybe if you would contact them to find why they are calling, then correct the situation when you are fist called it can fix the problem quickly. Seeing that it is a collection company calling you maybe you should pay the bill you owe so the economy can start to fix, it doesnt fix itself you know

 Mar 26th, 2009
Junk debt buyers who buy debt that is past the statute of limitations for pennies on the dollar. Don't answer - wait for the letter they must send after initial contact is attempted. It will state what company the original debt was from and whether it was bought or assigned. Learn how to deal with these bozos (and other collectors) on sites with message boards such as myfico and bankrate. You don't need to pay someone to do it - you can handle it yourself with a little effort.

Woman calls and said a collection from GMAC was place with them today. Gmac closed that account 4 years ago. I contacted my lawyer and was told not to pay.The statue of limitations had already passed. I am sure this account was actually refereed by another collection agency in Fl. Gmac has nothing to do with it.

Calls constantly. Threatens. Will not stop calling home, cell, and work. Had slacked on Wells Fargo payments. Several different people call. I called and made payment arrangements with Wells Fargo and am still getting these calls. I get them across the scale from sounding like my best friend to saying they are going to sue me and have the sherrif come and get me. Lovely. So, does this mean that when Wells Fargo is paid off I will still get these calls?

And yes, he says his company name is National Financial Action Service, but then he gave me another name.

Even if this is a collection agency, if you tell them never to call you again (even if you are the person they are looking for)they by law can NEVER call again. This is a law in ALL Fifty States. I was told My number would be removed within 24 hrs. I explained the State Att. Gen. would love to hear that because the law states if requested no calls the time begins when you hang up. By the way they were asking for no one who lives in my household. You don't need to be bullied, just use your State connections.

A man claiming to be Aaron Casio called and left a message on my voicemail for someone that doesn't exist at my number.

On my outgoing voicemail message I clearly state that this person is not at my number due to the large number of calls I get for that person.

I called them back within 40 minutes of receiving the message and asked for Aaron Casio and I am told that he is out of the office (how convenient for them, this leads me to believe Aaron Casio is a fake name.) I told them that if I get anymore phone calls from them that they will hear from my attorney. The lady claimed that she would remove my number.

My attorney has already gone after seven collection agencies that have been bothering me for debts that aren't mine. I'll tell you one thing, those other collection agencies shut up really quick after hearing from my attorney. NAFS just may be his eighth agency to deal with.

NAFS has been told on more than one occasion not to call my number any more. I will file a lawsuit if this persists.

The key to collection calls is to NEVER ANSWER THE PHONE. Get Caller ID and if you DONT recogonize the number then dont answer.

Dont argue with them, dont "give them a peice of your mind", Dont "have fun" with them. dont even answer it. Just IGNOR the call. This is the ONLY WAY they will give up.

If they get ANYONE on the phone, they will keep calling.

YOu see, these collection people WANT you to answer, this CONFIRMS your Phone Number. Once they know they can reach you, then they have a HIT on a phone number and a way to irritate you. SO they will keep calling over and over.

If you Agrue with them, Well, then you have give them EXACTLY what they want. Once you start talking to them, they know they have you.

If they NEVER get a hit, meaning that no one ever answers the phone, then they soon (within a few months) realize it's a waste of time to keep calling.

Calls daily for the past few days, no message. Advice from here, go to the National No Call site, file a complaint. You must be on the no call list for 31 days to do so, but file a complaint every time the number shows up. Didn't know who it was until I did the phone number search and found these complaints. File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission as well, if they are a debt collector attempting to collect a debt you don't owe, file a complaint. Am looking for other sites to file complaints on as well.

Well I am happy to say that for the past year I have been DEBT FREE!! Meaning I told all the Credit Cards to go to Hell and never paid them another dime of the $10,000 I owed at 30% Interest!! I now live all cash and I LOVE IT!! FREEDOM!!

Anyway, this is yet another collection agent that is trying to call me, I just IGNORE the call. NEVER EVER ANSWER THE PHONE WHEN COLLECTION PEOPLE CALL. If you talk to them, they keep calling. After about 8 months, they start selling the debt and eventually they just give up. If you EVER talk to them or even answer the phone, they keep calling.

I LOVE Living without Credit!! Cash Only for me for the rest of my life!!

 Mar 05th, 2008
There is a way to stop these calls and it is for everyone whether you truly owe the debt or you are just an innocent person getting harrassed for no reason!!!

She had my mother-in-laws # but still tried to tell me that she was told she could be reached here. I told her that she lived 20 mins away. When I asked her what this was in reference too all she would say in a hateful tone was that: she had some disturbing documents come across her desk and that she needed to speak with her ASAP! I told her that when I saw her I would give message. But knowing my mother-in-law I think that they are trying to scam her she is elderly and on a fixed income.

Like the rest of you, I get a few calls from these people. They say I owe $900. No I don't. They insist. They were rude. BIG MISTAKE. I Googled their 800 number and got the address in NY like some here. Then I found the Budd Hibbs site and got their 800 numbers. I just finished filling up their answering machines with the news and some talk about how interesting my penis is.

I also found an SEC filing from when the National Action Financial partnered with Sitel Corp. Turns out that Michael Fletcher has a phone number of 770-936-8998, with an office in Georgia. I think I will call my new friend tomorrow and everyday this year and next. How about the rest of you out there. I suggest we fill all their machine time up and then call their chief operating officers at their true numbers as shwon on the SEC filing. (Its form 8-K for the Sitel Corp. in case you want to find it for yourself. Good luck all.

If you get a call from this # put a trace on it after pick up
hang up and dial your trace # available thru phone service
provider.

Communicate with your phone service company which will initiate
internal proceeding ,then prepare for a Civil Lawsuit against
The Business License Holder or Holder's a class action suit
could be effective as well.
Research who the actual " Business License Holder" is and start
filing complaints to the license issuing agency with the objective
of a license revocation.

Stay away from them, once you answer the phone they never cease because you have just validated your number with them. All they want tis a call back and you are theirs forever or at lease until they get fried some kinda way. Send a cease and desist letter so that they have to sign for it when they receive it. when you get your receipt back from the post office staple it to the copy of the letter you sent them and go from there.

This number called my work, looking for a former employee. When told that the person did not work for us anymore, the caller started asking personal questions about that person. I informed the caller that I knew nothing about their whereabouts or anything as the compnay had changed states. The caller stated " Sh*t, I have some major business I was working on with him, can't you give me any information about where he is?" I told her that I had heard he left the country for health reasons. Then I hung up[.
The caller was very pushy, wanting personal information. Rather rude collection company.

This doesn't show on any credit report, even though they tell me they are looking at a copy! They just wanted the money regardless of any valid debt to anyone. You have to wonder why someone would pay them to help settle a debt you never had. (This seems to track to some regional department store that doesn't do business within 250 miles of where i live.

I have the same problem. "Mr Alltough" keeps calling and leaving messages for someone who doesn't even live here. I have told them repeated times that the person does not live here and they say that they will take care of it and then end up calling the next day with the same bs. They get more and more threatening every time. Today, he left a message saying for us to call back within 24 hours in order to "protect" ourselves. We called and told them once again that the person does not live here and this time threatened to take HIM to court for harassment. We will see how it goes. If you don't owe money, then don't bother with these people. We went months with our home phone unplugged to avoid these unnecessary calls, but they still continue. This company needs to be reported.

A few months ago I moved and got an updated cell number in my current area code. Immediately I started receiving collection calls from various agencies regarding the previous owner of my number. Most agencies have been understanding and have removed my information. However, these people have no intention of removing me from their database after 3 months of attempts.

I know the Fair Debt Collections Practice Act very well. I, unfortunately, was a collector for American General Finance when I was in college and graduate school. I also worked for an attorney who sought judgments against debtors. The people calling from 716-650-6240 are completely skirting the FDCPA; No calls before 8am or after 9pm (local time to the call receiver). They are also not allowed to be rude, threatening, or abusive in any manner. Report these violations to the Attorney General of your state as well as the Attorney General of New York, where this company is incorporated. they keep calling my phone number for no reason at all so everybody report them to the right people

These peopel have some nerve! I let it go to voicemail and the message I recieved was horrific! Nasty threats, very bad tone and actually raising their voice!. I did some research and found they are a collection agency who buys debt that is past it's statute of limitations so they cannot collect in court. To make it worse, they won't give you information about the debt! I still have no idea what they are talking about!! Just avoid their calls or send them a certified letter telling them to stop.

They call daily. I have repeatedly told them they have the wrong person. Seems to do no good. I just don't answer anymore.

Some male call from this number looking for my wife's mom. I attempted to explain that wife's mom did not live with us and that we weren't always in contact with her. He was persistent about leaving a message, even after I explained to him that she may not get the message. He then stated that my unwillingness to take a message was the reason "she's (my wife) is leaving". I attempted to discuss this with him further, but he refused to speak and then hung the telephone up. I was hoping he could tell me the date she's leaving, so I can plan a party that night!!! just kidding

I also have been receiving calls from this company. Is the business going to be shut down? or what? I'm tired of being harrassed by this number.

They always say, in an intimidating voice...

"Again the number to return this call to is 1-866-265-5287 and ask for Gary Marshall"

"My name is Mr. Marcy El. I am colling with offices of Nation Action Financial Services. This message is being left under Federal and State regulations. Unfortunately, due to the sensitive nature of this call federal law prohibits the disclosure of any additional information at this time. If you intend to protect your rights as a consumer contact me IMMDEDIATELY.

1-800-443-2918.
My name is Mr. Marcy El...and it repeats the SAME MESSAGE.

What is odd.. Gary Marshall and Mr. marcy El are indeed the SAME voice. How can they legally claim they are 2 different people when leaving messages.

They keep calling for a person who doesn't live here. The man told me to stop lying to him how could they be calling for a person who hasn't have last name and doesn't ive there. Well I have no idea who they want and I wish they would stop calling me. You all need to find a way to put them out of business. I have no reason to lie and my bills are paid, so whoever they are looking for they need to find them elsewhere.

Ms. Madigan called me and started cussing at me and I hung up on her and she tried to call right back and I didn't answer. Who does that? I am now getting the calls everyday with some messages and some hang ups and I am waiting for the day it stops!

Someone calls me everyday (sometimes more)from this number. They do leave me a message saying they are from National Action Financial Services, but does not tell me who they are trying to collect for. I might would respond if they would tell me for whom they are calling.

I know many phone companies have rules against these things. Spam, harrasment etc. Here, why doesnt everyone call and complain to ATT fraud dept or whatever. Get their phones pulled.

I called this number back and they wanted my account number and asked what they were calling for but they insisted on an account number. I did get in a little trouble several years ago with a credit card but eventually was able to pay what was owed.

I am always getting calls from collection agencies, none of which are for me. anyway i eventually get sick of it get some one on the phone and tell them they have the wrong number and to stop calling. and they stop, few months latter a different agency starts calling. this is the only one that has completely ignored me telling them to stop calling, and they are now calling me about three times a day.

they left message saying they follow state and federal policies but could not say they are calling. I don't know why they called but the caller ID said unavailable so I am unavailable. if they are not a fraud they would have a respectiable caller ID

automated calling system from (716) 650-6240 calls my cell phone every morning at 8 AM my time (PST) and I have no dealings with this company and don't give out my cellular number so someone else must have made up a phone number on their credit application and used mine - now I get the calls. Changing my number appears to be the only way to rid their calls.

Getting (and ignoring)calls several times a day for the past week or so from the 716 number.
Never answer the phone if you don't know who it is, or if it comes up UNAVALABLE. Legit callers state their business clearly. Don't have caller id? ask for it for Christmas! It's worth it for times like this.
Y' know this is bogus by the vague and ugly message, and especially if you are in no legal/financial trouble whatsoever. Don't give out anyone else's info, either, not even your bleepin' x's.
Take it easy; don't engage; Though the singing idea and the invitation to play children's games sound like a fun way to strike back.

NEVER GIVE A DEBT COLLECTOR YOUR BANKING OR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION! MAKE THEM VALIDATE THEIR CLAIMS!
NEVER HELP A DEBT COLLECTOR ROB YOU!

this person called me (on my companys cell phone) and referred to me as somebody that owed them money. also called me by another name and told me to man up and tell them who i was and what my address was. i have found out that this is a scam to make people pay them that owe other people money. i cant imagine this tactic being used on old people. also come to find its mostly used on cell phones.
