Hey these people are scums of the earth and this so called Mike must be one of the collectors who should be called asshole!! I have a friend who is being harassed by them daily who has a excellent credit rating and has no idea why they are calling him. Well I told him to hold out to Jan 1, 2013 and do not answer the phone when these jerks call. In January 2013 the government is going after these debt collectors and hopefully put them out of business for good. I told him if this does not stop by the end of January 2013 I will let my family lawyer sue the hell out of them!! Yes this is a warming!!

My compliments to the good sleuthing found in this thread.

If you are receiving misdirected or abusive calls from a third party debt collector, you may find relief in the provisions of the FDCPA, which regulates collector behavior and provides a private right of action. It grants you control of how you are contacted, and collectors can be sued for their crimes. You may however soon find that your verbal demands to limit or cease communication, as allowed by the FDCPA, are often ignored. You will have to place the discussion on a paper trail to enforce regulatory compliance. Learn your rights and first response tactics at FTC-dot-gov.

Oh, and "Mike" the angry pot, please meet the black kettle. If anyone is an economic and emotional parasite, it's the typical rogue debt collector, who doesn't much mind if the amounts or names are incorrect, doesn't care who suffers so they can hit those quotas. Like all of you trolls, you have conveniently missed the parade of entries made by people who owe nothing and are falsely accused.

Caller asked for "Joewilly" Williams. The recorded message said if I was not that person (I am NOT)call them back and advise them. I called back several times and was put on hold everytime. They harass me with these calls and will not talk about it. I have had my phone since 1997, and they have been calling me for about a year.

Lady who had my phone number before me was apparently a deadbeat. I called direct to 781-753-4002 from another number not traced to me and asked to be removed. Operator said he removed it with no questions and no harassment. We'll see if it sticks.

Remember, debtors are scum! They are thieves! They are no better than someone that walks into a bank and robs it! These debtors were given thousands of dollars under the agreement that they would pay it back, but they are not paying it back, they are running and hiding in holes like the rats they are! Bill collectors are like police officers, they are tracking down these criminals and getting them to payback what they stole. Debtors are leeches on society, sucking the life blood out of the economy, Banks were kind enough to help these people out and give them money that they needed, and how do these losers repay them? by stealing the banks money! Money that belongs to the patrons of that bank.

TRAPLINE!!

Do NOT call them from any telephone# you do NOT want them to ever have. The company is:

CCA
700 Longwater Drive
Norwell, Ma 02061
800-268-9806
781-753-4002

Whatever their reason is for calling you, and if they are calling you at the homes of relatives, they are doing so after a basic background investigation. Rookie investigators, given the right resources, can obtain many of your family's contact ph#s. When they don't know where you are, contacting all your immediate family is what they do first. This is Investigation 101. It is also the reason they give you the 800# PLUS.....a "REFERENCE NUMBER".....to use when calling. This Ref# IDENTIFIES YOU!!. Now they have you from a particular Ph# at a certain time of day. They are hoping to obtain a POE for you from this, then their attorneys can go after your paycheck to attach.

DO NOT CALL THESE NUMBERS from any and all companies doing the same thing, not from any phone# you don't want them to know of and remember that your assigned reference# IDs you.

WANT SOME REVENGE??.....call from payphones or any phone not traceable to you and alter the reference #s a bit when doing so. Don't change them too much, such as adding more numbers, for then they will just ignore the call, knowing it to be in error. Keep the same amount of numbers in your ref#, but change a few of those numbers. Then, their investigators waste a helluva lot of time chasing down those false leads to your whereabouts, but in those cases, to someone else's whereabouts, for your changed ref# may ID another skip they seek. THAT will cost them much time and money. ;)

REMEMBER THIS: even if the 800# is not a trapline (for I have one myself), any company's 800# works the same way!! WHY? Because they are paying for all calls coming into it and they get the data on the phone#s calling them, for they have that right to know where the calls come from since they are paying for it. It's not as simplified a process as a trapline, but ANY & ALL company 800s will get the same data. So, if you want to speak to someone there, use their regular ph#.

They are whores. Keep calling my number asking for another party. Attempts to get them to stop calling the wrong number failed. Call CEO Paul Leary Jr or their corporate atty named Richard Manning and rake them over the coals like I did 800-866-9177). Paul comes to the phone, Richard returns calls. Then call your state Atty General's Office, ask for Consumer Protection/Fraud Dept and file a formal complaint!!!

This company is doing some very shady stuff. My brother in law who lived with us briefly 10 years ago owes everyone money. Unfortunately my son has the same name as my brother-in-law. So what happens is we get calls from this company for my BIL. Now MY family gets calls for him. Since my son has the same name they do some sort of search for "mike's" closest relatives. they get my son mike's closet relatives. Today my brother and his wife received a collection notice at their address from CCA!

CCA is a shell company for another company based out of Germany. They specialize in harrassing phone calls and must have success in doing business this way. I am currently being harrassed by them, but can live with not answering their "UNKNOWN" caller ID. Tried to explain that I'm not who they are looking for, but they seem to be suffering from terminal anal-cranial inversion.

I would recommendd you DO NOT return their phone calls.

Time sensetive matter, not a solition call not a marketing call however pre-recorded message wanted a call back within 24hrs. Not - I don't owe anyone at least outstanding and I do have my phone blocked from solication and marketing calls. I want to call to get them to stop bothering me however I realize that this will only add fuel to the fire. Good luck to thoses of you who do call back

The machine picks up all of my calls, if I don't know the number, I refuse to talk to them. They wanted someone who doesn't even live with me. If I call back, I assume I would be raked over the coals and I am not even going to go there. I can easily block them too for that matter.

These people called me once every week or two this time last year, sometimes as a real person and other times as a recorded message. Every time, though, they asked for somebody named Dana Cox (who I am not). When it was a real person, I told them several times I have no idea who Dana Cox is, but they wouldn't take "no" for an answer. After a while, they gave up and stopped calling, but I just got another call from them today (as a recorded message), asking for the same Dana Cox. Idiots.........

This is a scam collection agency that DOES NOT follow the law when trying to collect a debt. Make sure they have the proper SS# DO NOT give ANY information. I'm telling you DO NOT give them any information. Here is their info: CCA (does not stand for anything) 700 Longwater Dr. Norwell, MA 02061 They state they are a "Accounts receivable management company" or in other words a Collections Agency. They must give you their collection agency license number and must prove to YOU that you are who they are looking for. If it is the wrong person tell them to stop calling you and they must.

Left a pre recorded message saying that the want a call back and they assume since my answering machine picked up the call that I was "guilty" and was assumed that I was the "culprit"

Do not answer the phone with these creeps. Their legal knowledge is less than honest.

Report them to the FTC. (www.ftc.gov). I did. I don't know if it will do any good, but if they are legit you would expect them to give out more information about themselves. If they are not legit maybe this will help

Well, even though they said they would take me off their list, they called me again today. Same recorded robot message, then when I called them back to AGAIN be taken off their list - they were still looking for "Darrell" who, amazingly, I STILL do not know - nor have I ever known. I asked AGAIN to removed, but at least this time the woman I spoke with was very friendly, and said she would do it right now. We will see...
Beth
 Mar 11th, 2008
They have left about 15 messages on my answering machine, so I finally called them back. They asked for the number I was calling from and then said they were looking for "Darrell" (who is not anyone that I know for sure!). I asked for the company name - she said it was CCA. I asked what does the CCA stand for, she replied with "It doesn't stand for anything". She was REALLY rude and yelled at me when I demanded that my number be removed from their list. She said that I had no right to be so forceful with her since I have never spoken to her before. I repeated that I just wanted taken off the list. She yelled at me again for being rude and hung up on me. Is there somewhere I can call to report this company??

I have been recieving calls from this number as well. I called them back today. All they asked for was the number I was calling from. The gentleman pulled me up on the computer and asked if I was (he gave a name I don't want to post here). I said no and he said he would take me off thier list. He did not give me a hard time.
