Call your local phone company to see if they have a service called "Call Intercept".. there is a monthly charge to have this service. With "Call Intercept", you can block any number in the United States. I have "Call Intercept" on my home phone thru Verizon and I am able to block 25 numbers. The person calling your number will get a recording saying "THE PERSON YOU ARE CALLING DOES NOT ACCEPT CALLS FROM THIS NUMBER, GOOD BYE." It's GREAT blocking Portfolio Recovery Associates from calling all day from different numbers. I am hoping that Verizon will extend call count from 25 to 50 numbers.

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.

Portfolio Recovery Associates - Debt Collection company will ignore cease & desist letter and will not respond to requests that they validate the loan. If you try to talk to them by phone they are rude, insulting and uncooperative. They don't want the truth - they just want money from you even if not your debt. They call your job and home and will deliberately leave messages on the phones of co-workers.
Yes - they will sue you and the judgment will be posted to your credit report. I speak from experience. This is an awful company and I have been tangling with them for almost 6 years. They are liars and only out to get money from whoever they can. You can report them to the Better Business Bureau or your State Attorney General - but it does no good. For some reason this company is allowed to continue their illegal practices and no one at the state or federal level will stop them.

if I ever found out that any collection agency called my 80plus year old parents, I would ream their butts out so fast. They can only call to locate someone and then only ONCE. Portfolio and the others bought a bad debt, a charged off debt. The only amount they "might" be able to collect is the amount they paid. I say, take me to court.

If they want to spend $1,000 to collect a $1,000 , go for it. Garnish my social security. Send the bill to Nancy Pelosi, she will take care of it.

These assclowns need a cactus dipped in turpentine jammed up their poop chute and set on fire. I am about ready to drop my landline thanks to calls from wankers like this. It's not worth the money to bother having one anymore.

If I don't answer and they don't leave a message, then I'm not worrying about this call. I refuse to pick up the phone when I don't recognize the number- (unless one of my friends or family members got a new number and I didn't/don't know it and they leave a message stating that the number they've called from is their new number...) It just gets on my nerves that they are calling my CELL PHONE. Oh well, just another number to add to my block list.

They call multiple times a day. I never answer and they never leave a message! We don't own credit cards. Probably a fishing expedition. Probably along the lines of "Who am I talking to? I need your SS#." Or, "Is this Jane Doe? No? Then what is your name?" Absolutely no way I am playing that game. That's happened to me more than once.

I get several calls from these clowns a day! I've explained to them that I am not the person that they are trying to speak with; however, this doesn't keep them from calling.

I get two or three calls per day from this number, I don't answer and they NEVER leave a message.
They call as early as 8:30 AM and as late as 9:00 PM.
