I have received numerous calls from 855-212-9058, asking for my ex husband (I did not have this number while we were together & we have been divorced for 20+ years. I called the number back, a lady answered the phone with some law firm name, I explained I've been getting these calls 3-4 times a day. The lady asked me what my phone number is, I said to her why would you ask my phone number and not the name of the person you are looking for. She said I need your phone number so I can delete it from the person's account. I said don't you want the name of the person so you can look up their account. She hung up on me. I called back and it went to a voice mail

1 855-212-5977 / 1 855 212 9058-** June 6, 2018 This is a “Zombie Debt” Collection scam, and one of the worst kind. Whoever they are, (BTW, ALL collection companies, without exception are required by federal law to properly identify themselves whenever they call anybody for any reason, so these un-named clowns are obviously operating outside the law.) they buy up old, bogus, expired or otherwise legally uncollectable junk accounts for pennies on the dollar and then try to shake down anyone for payment regardless of whether they ever owed on them or not. They enjoy no legal recourse in any U.S. court and therefore cannot make good on a single threat. They called for my daughter, who has been married for many years by her maiden name, so clearly they are not in a position to do any of the legal skip-tracing work regular licensed contingency collectors must do in order to find people. Using one-way numbers and fax to harass their victims helps them avoid the authorities while sounding more official but is strictly a criminal trick, especially since using legally licensed process servers is not an option they have. Another dead giveaway is their fake phone static that wouldn’t fool anyone with an I.Q. exceeding their own shoe size. After the second call, I hung up and blocked them and have heard nothing since. The area code is for Kansas, but is almost certainly a fake, these vermin could be located anywhere on the planet. In any and all cases, trying to contact alleged debtors through friends and family is strictly illegal. The only lawsuit these crooks are entitled to is one with themselves as defendants.
