Any collection agency that violates the FDCPA may be sued. Consumers can find more information at http://www.ftc.gov/os/statutes/fdcpajump.shtm

There is much controversy over statute of limitations in all states. Even within the states, judges don't agree on the dates which really does a lot for the whole situation.

Most of the time, if you approach these bozos with a formal letter sent certified mail, return receipt requested and tell them to cease communications until they fully validate the debt, they will sell it to another bozo collector who will proceed to attempt to collect on it. When I say fully validate the debt, I mean specifically state in your letter for them to provide documents proving you actually signed a cardholder agreement or contract for the debt they are pursuing, copies of all documents they have on file pertaining to the alleged debt and authorization from the original creditor that they as a collection agency have the right to collect upon the alleged debt. Do not accept a copy of a statement as a validation of a debt, it is worthless. They will try and use this to shun you and satisfy the requirement but it does not. That is why you must specify in detail the documents (any and all) they have pertaining to the alleged debt. Yes, it's a pain but so are they and they are relentless. In some cases, if you do not challenge it, they may turn it over to an attorney within your state and attempt to file a judgment against you for the alleged debt. They can win if you do not fight it and having previous evidence that you have fought it is necessary if it does come to that point.

Know your rights as a consumer and act against those who violate them.

The following is directly from the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act:

§ 809. Validation of debts
15 USC 1692g
(a) Within five days after the initial communication with a
consumer in connection with the collection of any debt,
a debt collector shall, unless the following information is
contained in the initial communication or the consumer has
paid the debt, send the consumer a written notice contain-
ing—
(1) the amount of the debt;
(2) the name of the creditor to whom the debt is owed;
(3) a statement that unless the consumer, within thirty days
after receipt of the notice, disputes the validity of the
debt, or any portion thereof, the debt will be assumed
to be valid by the debt collector;
(4) a statement that if the consumer notifies the debt col-
lector in writing within the thirty-day period that the
debt, or any portion thereof, is disputed, the debt col-
lector will obtain verification of the debt or a copy of
a judgment against the consumer and a copy of such
verification or judgment will be mailed to the consumer
by the debt collector; and
(5) a statement that, upon the consumer’s written request
within the thirty-day period, the debt collector will
provide the consumer with the name and address of the
original creditor, if different from the current creditor.
(b) If the consumer notifies the debt collector in writing within
the thirty-day period described in subsection (a) that the
debt, or any portion thereof, is disputed, or that the con-
sumer requests the name and address of the original credi-
tor, the debt collector shall cease collection of the debt,
or any disputed portion thereof, until the debt collector
obtains verification of the debt or any copy of a judgment,
or the name and address of the original creditor, and a copy
of such verification or judgment, or name and address of
the original creditor, is mailed to the consumer by the debt
collector. Collection activities and communications that
do not otherwise violate this title may continue during
the 30-day period referred to in subsection (a) unless the
consumer has notified the debt collector in writing that the
debt, or any portion of the debt, is disputed or that the con-
sumer requests the name and address of the original credi-
tor. Any collection activities and communication during the
30-day period may not overshadow or be inconsistent with
the disclosure of the consumer’s right to dispute the debt or
request the name and address of the original creditor.
(c) The failure of a consumer to dispute the validity of a debt
under this section may not be construed by any court as an
admission of liability by the consumer.
(d) A communication in the form of a formal pleading in a
civil action shall not be treated as an initial communication
for purposes of subsection (a).
(e) The sending or delivery of any form or notice which
does not relate to the collection of a debt and is expressly
required by the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, title V of
Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, or any provision of Federal or
State law relating to notice of data security breach or priva-
cy, or any regulation prescribed under any such provision
of law, shall not be treated as an initial communication in
connection with debt collection for purposes of this sec-
tion.

From my understanding, the only time it's not legal is if you tell them to stop calling you. Then it's considered harrassment. They've not called me again since I gave them the contact information. It still blows my mind they were calling for my ex father n law from 16 years back! STRANGE WORLD WE LIVE IN! lol

Calls frequently, we have no debts, but my son does, he lives in another state.
Why call me? I just don't pick up, no message left. They even called today
at 8:30am. Is that legal?

Update: get this, they were calling for my ex husband's dad who lives 1000 miles away and I've lived here for 16 years lol. I am no longer going by that last name and haven't since 1997! I have no clue what so ever how they got my number or information!!! But you know I gave them the number for my ex's dad so they can get off my back lol. Thought you'd get a kick out of hearing this.. The company's methods. The woman was nice and thanked me up and down LOL.

From what I gather, the calls from 757 321 2508 are generated automatically, then when you answer they pick up the line (if they are available) or they make you wait on them to get to you (even though they called you). I have no stocks nor portfolios so I have no clue why they'd call except to solicit sales. They never leave me a message but they were slow getting to the line so my call notes picked up before they knew it. The call notes revealed them saying "hello? helllooo?" then hanging up on me with no message to explain their rudeness. They repeatedly call nearly every day throughout the day, late evening included (dinner time for us). Grrr

I don't know of this company. They leave messages on my voicemail saying they are trying to collect on a debt. Most of the time I get only a partial message, so I don't know if they have the wrong number or have me mixed up with someone else who may have lived here before I bought the house. I have no outstanding debts. I only got a partial number from the voicemail.... ending in 5122

Received two calls in two day. I called the 866 number they left on a recorded message, they said they were trying to collect debt from two different people unknown to me. They said they would stop calling.

I have received several calls from this number and from Portfolio Recovery using other numbers. I don't answer calls of this type and don't have any delinquent debt.
