I've gotten several calls from these people with their just like Trish Vickers (below) said -- LOUD, RUDE, people telling me "YOU MUST CALL IMMEDIATELY!!" but this was the first time I returned one. On the off chance that either my wife or I forgot to pay on something, I went to the website and plugged in both my phone numbers. Zilch. I called the number on the website and gave the woman (who was a bit short but not rude) my number, and she said they had that number listed as being for "Todd Addison". Like hell. Naturally, I didn't give her my name. She offered to take my number off and I told her by all means.

NSS: The comment from ''Pennsylvania'' in April this year indicates that crabbing about ''decency'' is part of the scripted lines. Seems to me I'd expect the decency of Takhar actually obeying collections laws.

CL and Unknown: Did you miss my advice just prior to your entries? If you want the calls ended YOU have to take direct action, and it's not hard. A determined collector with an autodialer is going to pound you with calls whether or not you answer them. It's *what* you do in response which make all the difference.

Better yet, record the call for real and wait for Takhar to hand you actionable violations. It may not take long. Those of you getting skip trace calls for someone else, send a cease-comm notice via USPS Certified with card. The FTC and many consumer watchdogs explain how to draft one.

These people call at least once a week, leaving an automated message that says, "We expect the basic decency of a return call." HAHA The answering machine picks up EVERY SINGLE TIME. I don't know what it will take for them to stop calling. I don't owe any outstanding debts, so I'm sure they're looking for someone who had my # years ago. I won't answer, nor will I give them the "basic decency" of a call back.

I've been getting calls from these people for about 6 months, sometimes 6 or 7 a day. Very aggressive, boarding on threatening. I have no idea wtf they want. Calling them back is not an option - never again!. The one time I did, I was yelled at by some woman who sounded like she had a mouth full of Turkish Taffy, screaming at me to pay my g.d. bills. What bills, she wouldn't say. I don't own anyone money save for my current utilities, which are up to date.

These people are on fishing expeditions. I have run across several of these types of companies lately. They use their "technology" to cross-link names, addresses, and phone numbers even if there is no apparent "logical" connection. The called tonight and left a message saying "We require you to call us back". After giving them the "middle finger salute", I called them back and they asked for someone I haven't even remotely heard of before. Remember, you do NOT have to be nice to worms like this. Having a bad day? Call one of these suckers back and have fun! REMEMBER: The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act protects you to some degree. See 15 USC 1692f Section 809 for your rights.

Grr: How would that violent response not make you look as bad as Takhar? Better for you to simply give them rope to hang themselves. Send a cease-comm as described by the FTC and many other consumer help sources. If they violate, they get "punched" for $1K plus your legal fees.

Carrie: Trying to outguess how a collector will categorize you based on merely answering a call is futile overthinking. Dealing with these thugs by voice in general is an exhausting exercise, as collectors are trained to deceive and wear down a person's defenses. It does sound like they are trying to create a false impression of your dodging their SOOOoo magnanimous "numerous chances to discuss", distracting from their real agenda of bully tactics. The obfuscation you're hearing in the messages is a response to privacy provisions in the FDCPA, though the secrecy is also handy for creating undue anxiety.

Under the law if you could be effectively pursued for debt you should have seen a dunning letter within a week of Takhar's initial call. I guess that deadline would have been the end of August or better in your case. Document each call and what was said, make recordings, get your facts lined up against their lies. If you're serious about stopping the noise, either make them validate the claim or send them a cease-comm as suggested prior. See if they violate your demands in either case and if so, sue them into submission.

A man left a message in a very aggressive tone urging us to call immediately or go to their website at www.takhargroup.com. I did a Google search and found that they are a collection agency with a flood of complaints against them, and I don't think they are legitimate. I'm ignoring the call. Evidently they tend to harass and threaten people.

Thanks, Resident47 (and others who have written about this). Just got another call from them tonight 8:34 eastern(daylight) I get at least one a day. Usually I just ignore it. They leave that same message how they have given me numerous chances to call them back and "discuss this matter". They don't say who they are leaving the message for, or what it's about. It's a recording, if I pick it up, won't it still be a recording? Or maybe a person will come on.I usually don't answer calls like this, who don't at least say who they want to talk to or return the call! Answering it will show them they are getting a real person. Though I suppose the answering machine tells them that. I left the generic message on the machine when I got it, so a recorded voice just says "please leave your message after the beep". No name you have reached, etc.
I guess the best bet is to just ignore it. They probably figure if they annoy people enough they'll call back.
I wouldn't want to call anyone back who sounds like this guy LOL

I ordered a book from Rodale publications and was told that I could return it if I didn't like it. Instead they sent the debt" to this outfit. I sent back the item and they call anyway threatening me although I already told them about the return policy. They do not care.

avalon: Document those calls carefully. Anything before 08:00 and after 21:00 in your time zone violates the regs. It's more likely Takhar will hassle you for a real or imagined debt. I don't think service slamming is their style. Try to get information from them, but do not answer their questions or make any agreements. Record the call if possible. Probably a rep will commit other abuses which can be turned against them.

For both you and Becky23, please note my citation of FDCPA just a few entries ago. That's the first law you need for relief from rogue collectors, not the DNC registry, from which collectors are exempt.

Received at least 3 calls from various LOUD, RUDE, people telling me that this is a VERY important matter and I MUST call them IMMEDIATELY!! I don't know who they are or what they want but am sick of these calls on my answering machine. Returned the call. I asked for the last person that called me about 10 min. ago, Christa McAfee. She was on break and couldn't take my call - amazing - I'm supposed to drop everything and call her IMMEDIATELY (because I MUST and this is VERY IMPORTANT) but she can go take a break instead of waiting for my IMMEDIATE phone call about this VERY IMPORTANT MATTER. Told the guy I was talking to that this was UNACCEPTABLE (after all, this is a VERY IMPORTANT MATTER and must be addressed IMMEDIATELY!) He got mad and hung up. I called back and asked for Christa again - the girl that answered said Christa was on another call but she would be able to help me (THANK GOD!). She read off an address and asked if this was my address. I asked her what she was calling about and she said she couldn't give me any information until I answered her questions. I told her I didn't appreciate the rude phone calls I had been receiving and that since I didn't know who she was or what she was calling about I wasn't going to confirm or deny any personal information for her. She asked me to verify information about 3 more times and I refused 3 more times. I finally told her to stop calling my house since they weren't going to tell me what they were calling about and if it continued I would sue them. I called later to get their zip code as I was going to report them to the Better Business Bureau and the zip code is required. This time Nancy Roberts answered the phone (she was the first and RUDEST, LOUDEST call that I had received from this number). I simply asked for their mailing address and zip code when she answered but her caller ID showed her my name and number. She wouldn't answer me as to the address or zip code but started in on the same line of questioning as the last girl. This girl is very rude and obnoxious. I gave her the same answer and hung up. I have searched several Reverse Phone Directories on the web but none seem to be able to locate this 800 number. AMAZING!!!. I hope they can get through this IMMEDIATE, VERY IMPORTANT MATTER without me. (I checked the internet - I guess it's a collection agency. I have no outstanding debts that I am aware of, but if I did I would wait to be sued before I would pay it after talking to these people.) Does anyone know where this company is located???

Carrie: Did you not see the prior comments? You have a hostile debt collector following a bullying script. Apparently you missed your "one last chance" a month ago, so they are giving you another. Whatta crock. A simple search on the terms "Takhar Group" pulls several complaint sites in the top level results.

If they want to dun you so badly they can do it by mail as the FDCPA demands. Probably you don't owe a thing, but they think you're as stupid as they are and would melt under pressure. Learn your rights at FTC-dot-gov.

More calls, sometimes different numbers. Loud, threatening sounding person giving me ONE LAST CHANCE to return the call. Who do they want? What is it about? They call at least once a day.

They call me several mimes a day, maybe with different numbers. Sometimes leave a message sometimes don't. Today a recording of a very heavy-handed sounded male voice said they had tried numberous times to get in touch with me, are surprised I haven't returned their call (who do they want? What is it about? They never say) and they were giving me ONE LAST CHANCE to call them back. I don't know what they will do if I don't (I don't plan to, I looked them up and they don't seem legit) but I feel almost threatened.

These are the total lowest of low scumbags....I've told them at least the 100 times the debt they were calling on was not mine. When they called today, I was in the middle of a convo with them and my husband and jokingly called my hubby a "loser". The real loser was the guy from this group. He called back and said I called him a looser and told me I was the "f'ing" loser. I tried to get names from supervisors...but they refuse to give them...collections law provides they must. Long story short...I'm blasting the hell out of these losers all over facebook. Can a collections agency in Canada call the US?

We continually get calls from these buffoons. They have several other numbers they use to try and get you to answer. If you report this number, they'll use another. From everything I've read about the nefaious Takhar Group,they are a so-called "collection agency" out of Ontario, Canada and will claim you owe for books or magazines you ordered. They are bottom feeding parasites who prey on people who don't know enough to report this kind of harassment and stalking. We just continue to ignore and report them hoping one day the fine city of Ontario takes action and shuts them down. Tar & feathers at the city limits would be a suitable punishment for these creeps.

Their computer kept calling my cell and leaving messages to contact them so I went to the website and followed the prompts to find out who they are looking for. Turns out I have no knowledge of the person they want. I called the 800 number and was told they would take my number off their computer. I immediately received another call from them and when I called back a VERY rude woman told me to quit calling them and that it would take 24 hours to get my number off their computer. They must be technologically challenged if it takes that long to correct their data.

I keep getting these calls, and they are very annoying. You can't talk to anybody. It comes up unknown, even though I have caller ID. Caller is rude. I don't owe anybody, since I filed bankruptcy, and all past debts were wiped out. The police are now investigating my phone. Please stop calling I have a sick child at home , and the constant calls are upsetting him!!!! PLEASE STOP !!!!!!!

Very rude robo call from a Takhar Group. They never state who they're looking for, and I don't respond to anonymous (especially hateful sounding ones like this one) calls due to all the scams that are out there. They can just keep talking to my answering machine.

Scam call from Takhar Group demanding in a threating voice telling me to call back. I checked it out and found they were calling me for a debt I paid off years ago to Columbia House. I called them back to hear a recording that the office was closed nad to log onto the website for futher info. From what I found out on the Internet they are scamers and try to intimidate people into paying THEM money thay they nolonger owe.

They left a message on my cell phone voicemail that stated I must call back immediately. I called back and the woman was rude and agressive. She wanted to talk to my son (who is 7 yrs old) then proceeded to go off on me when I informed her she wouldnt be speaking to my 7 yr old. She tried getting information out of me and was not happy that I continued stating that I will have my attorney and the credit bureau look into this but that I will not confirm or give her any information.

Called, I answered, recording came on: never stated who they were calling or why. I must call back immediately. Identified the company as Takhar but never stated who they were calling or why. We get lots of calls for the people that formerly had our phone number, that we've only had one year. Nasty sounding call, so I've blocked it.
