Mine is about a hospital bill I have a payment plan on. If the hospital does tell them I paid date they call everyday at least twice a day until the hospital tells them I paid.

Called them back and didn't properly disconnect our line and lady was in background . Shouting "John, I can't take this shit no more I'm going to bed" really creepy. How so they have our numbers?

Answered this call - the person didn't identify herself or her company. She stumbled over both my names. I said "Ma'am, if you can't even pronounce my name, I have no interest in talking to you. Goodbye." Then I hung up. I figured if it was really important, she would call back (she didn't).

Ruth, the DNC registry ''doesn't seem to help with'' debt collectors because it's not meant to. The federal Do-Not-Call registry links to the Telemarketing Sales Rule, which only addresses sales callers. You are told as much at registration time if you actually bother to read the rules, which are not made a secret. You are in fact urged multiple times to read them, but this apparently is too much work to expect of people who supposedly derived benefit from a tax-supported educational system.

You *can* limit or prevent a given collector's calls if you apply the proper state and federal laws and send written notice via USPS Certified with return card. There's plenty else you can do if you catch a known scofflaw like iQor/Allied Interstate ignoring your rights. These official-type liks will help with your homework:

This # keeps calling us as well, and any time of the day. They will not answer if you DO pick up the phone. "THEY NEED TO BE STOPPED!" Both my son and I work late night and it interrupts our sleep. UGH!!!!!! I'm on the Do Not Call List and it doesn't seem to help with these type of people! STOP CALLING US!!!!!!!!!!

These calls come in as 1-000-000-0000. After over 3 months of these calls, I finally tried to answer them. Every time there is just computer beeps. I tried calling the number back and I get a message to put in a 1 and a 5 digit code. It is a computer. I've sponken to Verizon about this (OOOO) number and they have been trying to help figure out who it is. Tonight I yelled and yelled in the phone - I finally got a message to call the 1-800-966-0755 number. I looked up Allied Interstate - they are a collection agency. I tried calling them back and they say to call them back during office hours. (DO NOT CALL THEM FROM WORK). From what I see on the internet these people make a habit of calling and harrassing people about debts. I'm turning them in for harrasing calls. They are not worth my time of day. Just the fact that they have harrassed me this long (Over 3 months) and did not disclose who they were and what they were calling for is reason enough to not legitimize their cause. I fully intend to prosecute! Also - I have no past due debts! That I'm sure of.
