Accounts Receivable Management is a collection agency that has been in business since 1975. Accounts Receivable Management is headquartered in Thorofare, New Jersey, and has offices in Louisville, Kentucky, and Midland, Georgia. Accounts Receivable Management collects on debt originally owed to credit card companies, retail stores, hospitals, auto finance companies, and student loan companies.

According to its Web site, Accounts Receivable Management’s “commitment to service and excellence is second to none.” However, according to its track record, Accounts Receivable Management’s collection activities shed a much different light when analyzed under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. The FDCPA has been around for almost 35 years. The FDCPA is a federal law that applies to every state. In other words, everyone is protected by the FDCPA. The FDCPA is essentially a laundry list of what debt collects can and cannot do while collecting a debt, as well as things debt collectors must do while collecting a debt.

According to the Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER), Accounts Receivable Management has been sued over 100 times in the last 3 years for debt collection harassment. It does not get any better for Accounts Receivable Management on the Better Business Bureau. The Better Business Bureau has processed over 70 billing/collection issues, and over 85 total complaints, regarding Accounts Receivable Management in the last three years.

Accounts Receivable Management has several telephone numbers it places debt collection calls from. Accounts Receivable Management may be calling you from the following telephone numbers: 800-220-3350, 954-874-9920, 832-260-0414, 866-932-6801, 888-548-8829, 866-937-2249, 866-932-6805, 866-998-8526, 231-306-4788, 803-325-1158, 602-274-9911, 866-932-6810, 877-813-2900, 866-932-6721, 866-679-4046, 800-303-1995, 866-839-8858, 800-777-6116, 732-726-5692, 856-931-4500, 614-322-1696, 443-550-7975, 202-367-9845, 231-337-2146, 269-477-2149, 614-246-9462, 651-319-9163, 714-364-4465, 800-942-1572, 818-251-9361, 856-687-4120, 866-932-6731, 866-932-6770, 866-932-6791, 888-276-8572, 904-421-3330, 208-321-6554, 253-218-3451, 313-483-7070, 502-457-9129, 616-818-7896, 678-331-7211, 757-394-3149, 800-993-4685, 855-593-0070, 856-687-4127, 866-932-6712, 866-932-6741, 866-932-6777, 866-932-6820, 916-529-4409, 973-718-2454, 208-577-6173, 254-230-0272, 405-555-0199, 561-869-4490, 651-304-6390, 678-331-7257, 800-557-2114, 856-472-2473, 866-281-4135, 866-932-6713, 866-932-6750, 866-932-6780, 866-932-6802, 866-932-6822, 888-871-6484, 916-529-4413, 267-439-4927, 425-648-9488, 571-261-0052, 651-304-6871, 702-734-2654, 800-620-4284, 817-717-8245, 856-687-4115, 866-590-1779, 866-932-6726, 866-932-6755, 866-932-6786, 877-696-2660, 888-988-7727, and 952-259-1101.

Williams & Fudge Collection Agency. Rock Hill, South Carolina (Rock Hill Telephone CO.) Its almost like we are on some kind of list somewhere. They never leave a message. I will not pick up this phone because of these types of calls and the sheer numbers at which they occur.This type of call has increased exponentially at our house. I currently have 30 numbers blocked and that is the capacity of the phone. They just change phone numbers and continue to call. I am considering not having a home phone of any kind anymore, they are just a nuisance with this kind of thing all the time. It really needs to be regulated.

Fed Up Mom: You describe self-contradictory behavior from W&F, if I read this right. On the one hand they refuse to give details to you, a third party to your daughter, which is the correct decision for the collections rep. On the other, did ''they state'' to *you* that they think your daughter is a debtor? This is a clear privacy breach violating FDCPA if so, the very thing their obfuscation otherwise is meant to avoid.

Next, your daughter should have been dunned by mail within five days of the first call to her. You don't actually say if calls have reached her directly or if there is some reason they might not. That answer may cloud the issue of when the five day clock starts. Understand that usually hassling parents and relatives is a means of creating false shame, done in a perversion of the permitted purpose of skip tracing, to ''locate'' an alleged debtor who is already found.

You personally have no business with Williams & Fudge, so send 'em a cease-comm as I'd described to Rhonda 3.5 months ago. The next moves have to come from your daughter, not you and not anyone else. She's old enough to hold a college degree, she's old enough to beat back scofflaw collectors.

The fact that W&F has not attempted a lawsuit to collect may tell us they know their proof is weak or missing. If it is 100% true that this collector's claim is false, your daughter has a few options. She can send a cease-comm for her own benefit, and that should put a cork in the matter with the least effort. However, it sounds like these Fudge stains may have violated FDCPA in at least three ways from your story, ways which can turn into a lawsuit payout.

So the alternate approach would be to play along carefully, never admitting a hint of liability. She would send a letter USPS CMRR disputing the debt and requesting validation, as though she did possibly owe something. The FTC again explains more about these notices. The fun thing that happens here is that collectors must leave everyone alone while they gather (or fail to prepare) that validation. In the same letter an alleged debtor can restrict or ban all calls about that account, from that one collector, for good. Naturally you leave a USPS mail channel open so they don't feel forced to sue.

Meanwhile, daughter goes back to copy all existing phone messages from W&F to her, to you, and anyone else. In addition to (or in lieu of) audio records, memorialize everything said and done to this point. Document all subsequent calls and CID carefully and record clean phone audio if possible. Even if you can't turn this into a statutory fine, it's good practice to scrutinize each movement from a debt collector, especially one with a bad rep.

This effort may have a twin yield. One, W&F may decide like its rep that only the rules they prefer apply to them, and will hand you more violations to make into a slam dunk that no decent consumer lawyer could resist. Two, in turning the information flow fully in your direction, maybe you'll pick up intel on the suspect roomie and help gird your defense against any future collectors.

As to your daughter being ''told they had no record'', I think it is critical to ask who ''they'' are, the collector or the alleged original creditor. The answer can put a curiously different hue on this case.

These ppl have been calling for at least a year. They state that my daughter owes for student loans. She has NO STUDENT LOANS. I asked them to give me information as I had paid for her college education. They refused. I asked for information in writing and was again told that they could only communicate with my daughter. The representative stated that the agency would send information via mail to my daughter. She requested an address and I gave mine. The information never came. They did not phone for months after that. It has just stared again. I just want INFORMATION. My daughter did have a roommate attending college on loans. I want to know if that person might have stolen my daughter's idenity and applied for student loans. We have found other things underhanded she has done to us since she moved. If this is the case, I want to pursue the problem and get it straightened out. I can't do it without information. Oh, forgot to say that early on my daughter phoned and was told

No, Rhonda, federal DNC will not help because it’s not designed to in the case of non-sales calls. Debt collectors are among its exemptions, as the DNC site itself tries to tell you at registration time. You are likely 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.

While I’m sure FoF mounted a vigorous defense, it is evident this person reporting last summer has not read or used collections laws as intended. The burden of proof in a debt claim is on the collector, NOT the alleged debtor. A simple dispute launched early in the process might have prevented the garnishment and all the hassle since the mess started. A lender or junk debt buyer suing on a paid bill is begging for a countersuit from the consumer, one for which the offender can pay dearly along with all legal fees the alleged debtor may incur.

If you are receiving repeated, misdirected, and/or abusive calls from a third party debt collector, you may find relief in the provisions of the FDCPA, the federal law which regulates collector behavior. Learn your rights at FTC-dot-gov. See also your state laws for additional support.

This is a recording from South Carolina...I get a lot of toll free calls..several times a day. I'm almost to the point of disconnecting phone service. I have filed a complaint several times on Dono call.gov Has not helped. I do not owe anyone, have perfect credit, so I wonder why they are calling!

Chris Kane is not an attorney - he is an excellent billing collector though and is willing to work with people who dont give him any crap. trust me.

Westwood Online screwed my financial status up and instead of my bill being tacked to a Sallie Mae loan (as promissed) they had Chris contact me.

A few years later - I was done speaking with Mr. Kane.

Good luck!

After I finished college in 97, I paid back a $2000 college loan (it was for books and meals- my scholarship covered tuition and housing). About 6 months later, I get calls from "William The Fudgepacker" saying I have to pay back the $2000 (+ 6 monthe interest). 3 different times I faxed them the credit card statement (with certain info blacked out-i'm not stupid) proving I made the payment, and they still call me, even after I moved 1/2 a state away. They even garnished my $1000 tax refund in 04! 13 years later, they still call and send me bills (it's $3500 now). I think all the time and money they spent bothering me has way exceeded $3500, especially since I paid it back! They've even called my neighbors, trying to get info on me. Next time they do that, i'm hiring a lawyer to put an end to this BS.

I get repeated calls from 803-325-1158 and 803-329-9791. No voicemail is left. I just hit ignore when they call my cell phone. Not sure how they got it, since I did not put down my cell phone number for my student loans (which are NOT past due).

It is a collection agency from a class I dropped at South University which is by the way a huge scam. How can I owe money to a school that I dropped a class before the drop deadline?

First three times he got my machine, just said his name, "Anthony Lee" and not what he was calling about. Last time, he said Williams and Fudge. I googled them and they are scam artists. My daughter's loans, while in forebearance, are most certainly not in collection. DO NOT GIVE THESE GUYS ANY INFORMATION!
