Ms. James: These forums are strictly for call recipients to share their findings. They are NOT direct open channels to the phone bank boiler rooms we comment upon.
Rich: You did very well for someone not quoting the FDCPA. Oh yes, how magnanimous of them to offer a whole %30 discount for an account they bought for less than ten. You are correct -- Assuming a once valid debt, if the last date of activity was 16 years ago it should be past SoL in every state. You might pull your credit report to see if any bogus tradeline has appeared.
The long history of complaints in this thread are damning, and speak of sadly common tactics used by the collection industry. If you are receiving misdirected or abusive calls from a third party debt collector, you may find relief in the provisions of the aforementioned FDCPA, which regulates bad 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.

PLEASE DO NOT CALL MY HOME PHONE ANY MORE. YOU ARE HARASSING ME DAILY.
I HAVE HAD A STROKE AND UNABLE TO PAY MY BILL IN FULL. IF YOU ARE NOT
WILLING TO ACCEPT MY MONTHLY PAYMENT, THEN YOU CAN WRITE THE BALANCE
OF MY ACCOUNT OFF.
JEAN JAMES Oct 08th, 2010
This company sent me a statement saying I owe from 1994. They want $6000. I explained to them that I have didn't owe anyone from 1994, and that I am disputing the claim. The guy tells me that after looking at my credit report that I should have plenty of credit to pay off the debt (that I don't owe). I explained to him that another company called about 3 months ago and told me I owed 3000, from 1994. I disputed that one and haven't heard from them. They said that if I dispute the claim that if they can validate it, then they will expect full payment with in 48hours. However, They are willing to settle for 70% right now. Screw them. First of all, I never borrowed 6000 in 1994. Second of all, if I did and didn't pay for it how can I have bought a house since then, and several vehicles, and still obtain credit. And last if I did owe the money from 1994 then why would I pay now. If I am not mistaken, we are beyond the statue of limitation to seek legal action on a debt. After searching the Internet I am seeing this company is a scam. They are trying to use scare tactics to get money out of people. My advice is that if they call you and insist you owe (and you are sure you don't owe) dispute it, and if they try to send some crap back to you, hire an attorney.
voice mail totally unable to understand what the hell they're talking about, like they got marbles in their mouths. called the toll free number to be told my number is not in their database and they rudely hung up!
who are these people?
Uses up answering device then keeps calling all day long every day, they just change phones at their office I guess because the number changes only one diget.
Called me twice on my cell with auto dialer, apparently this is illegal.
Asset Care Financial Services - calling me 2-3 times per day for over a month now, attempting to collect a debt that is not even associated with me at all.
Have filed two complaints against them in the last 48 hours.
This is what happens when a collection agency uses computers & auto-dialers to bug the hell out of people rather than making an actual effort to speak to the proper individual about their own debts.
I returned this call, they sent me to another operator who put me on hold, then sent me to another operator who sent me back to the original operator. Well, then, you won't believe this, the voice mail message said they were closed, it's Thursday, no National or State Holiday, at 1:21 pm, good grief, I am laughing my butt off. The voice mail message was a British Accent............ugh, you think they forwarded my call to London........... What a joke.
My husband recived a letter today from Assetcare inc. looking for $30 for what?? He has no outstanding balances and checks his credit regularly. They would let him settle it at 60% off why bother!!!We Dont know who he owes the money to and why!!!I'm so glad I found this site he will not be calling them Thanks all for the info. I really belive it is a scam..
i have received Numerous telephone calls from the above number 888-379-4884
instructing me to call me "RON JACKSON" at another number...then i am read some creditors rights informing me i owe Capital One ...WHICH BY THE WAY IS FRAUDULENT!!!!!!!!!!! to date by the caller id i have receive 17 calls in 4 days!! I informed them each and every time to cease and desist calling me..so i am getting ready to file a formal complaint each offense towards me is at least $1,000 or greater ... please these people need to leave innocent people alone...trust me i will get paid by this outfit!!!

They have been calling me lately, except they identify themselves as MedCare. Left a number to call and a reference number. I have no overdue bills. When I called the number back the first time they never asked for the reference number. Asked for my phone number which I gave them (they obviously have it anyway). They then asked my name, which they had correct but not my full name (which I did not give them). They asked if the address was correct, it was not and I did not give them my real one. They asked if the birthday was correct, and it was not even close. The phone jockey then tersely proclaimed that they must have the wrong person and they would take my number off the list and hung up. I of course provided no information to them.
They called again, left a number and reference number (a different number this time). I called back to find out why they are still calling. Asked for my phone number (tho stil not the reference number), then my name (correct but not full name again). Asked my birthday again, same wrong date as last time. Asked them why they are still calling when they said the previous time that they would remove my number. I was told that there was no record of my having requested them to remove my number. I asked a couple of different ways what information they had that led them to believe that my phone number was the correct one. They would not respond to those questions, merely stating that my number has been removed and goodbye. If they call again I am calling the state AG.
This number has me an speed dial.auto dial, calls every day of the week at 830 each morning, Idont need a alarm clock because of them and Im retired and getting tired.
I am really sick of the calls from assetcare,they ring the phone off the hook they call five to ten times a aday.we have answer the phone but they hang up on you.this is harrassment.
Everyone call their State Attorney General.Tell them, you are sick of this harrassment. Embarq, Sprint, AT&T, etc/ does nothing!
THEIR ADDRESS IS...............PO 15380 WILMINGTON,DEL ZIP 19850 ASK FOR CHERYL OR BRITNEY
IF YOU WANT Jun 14th, 2009
THEY CALL AND ASK FOR MONEY AND HAVE NOT SENT ME ANY PROVE ON THE REASON FOR THE CALL. IF THEY DON'T WANT TO TALK THEY WILL HANG UP ON YOU. IT IS ASSETCARE CALLING. THEY NEED TO GET A LIFE. I PLAN ON TURNING THEM IN WITH THE HELP OF SOMEONE WHO ALSO WORKS FOR A GOOD COLLECTION AGENCY.
They called my sister-in-law who called me as I work for a collection agency. She gave them permission to talk to me. Neither of us could get anywhere. Whenever we asked for info about the "supposed" acct, they got snotty and hung up. Talked to Cheryl and her supervisor, Michelle. Am glad to find this on line as I will advise her not to pay a penny to these uncooperative, rude people!!
This company has been calling me 5-10 times a day for someone who had my phone number over two years ago. I keep calling them back and telling them that the person they want no longer has this number and they say they will take it off their files but the next day, I get the same. I work nights and try to sleep during the day but this company calls endlessly. I have an elderly mother and kids at school so I cannot turn off my phone. The phone company tells me it will cost me money to change my number and I will be out of service for up to a week. It should be illegal for these collectors to be able to use these automated systems to call. That was you could tell them the first time each day they have the wrong number and possibly get some sleep.
Susan Dean Mar 24th, 2009
another call from this number at 10:35 am. Did not answer it,let it go to fax
They call me for my sister-in-law!!! Have a ref. # and phone number. I never answer
In Illinois only one person has to be advised if a call is recorded so I really don't have to tell them that I am recording their call for legal action.
I bet if Barack got a call on his Blackberry from them, they'd disappear really quickly. Anyone got his number so I can forward the calls to him?
The number on the caller ID is 425-572-0277
and the number they leave is for AssetCare Inc. I guess Netarsha doesn't remember that people do have caller ID.
The recording gives the number 866-429-3592
which is AssetCare Inc. how dumb do they think we are. I don't have any delinquent bills.
These idiots who work for debt collectors are pitiful. They make the statement that "by continuing to listen to this message you are admitting you are the person whom we are trying to reach". What a dumb donkey statement. I listened simply to determine what the heck they were talking about and to see if in fact I was the person applicable to their concern.
They've even harassed the heck out of my elderly sick Mother. As of just about 15 minutes ago I filed a complaint with the www.ftc.gov and will not put up with this insanity. They call me at work, at home, after hours, make threats, insult me, make derogatory comments, and on. Pathetic to do business in that manner.
this shit bag of a company fucking doesnt understand or gave a fuck about the reason why i couldnt make the payment on time which happened to be back in june of 2004 i left for iraq for a year. Well in July this company opened a account for the $100 Keep in mind i didnt have phone access or internet but did get mail fowarded to me so finally when it got to me in SEPTEMBER 3 months later i sent a check and that was it. Fucking progressive insurance fucking sucks anyways i set up for them to automatically deduct the money from my account they just overall canceled my policy while i shipped out fuckbag's whatever though its not the point. I paid that shit asap and htey wont remove it from my credit report 4 fucking years later fuck them

This company is poorly managed. They keep on callng me.. asking for this random person. They areso stupid.
i have receive yourt letter what is that letter for
marisol aviles Oct 13th, 2008
Like most comments I have read here-in, this was a recording left on my answering machine. Said it is an attempt to collect a debt & left a Reference ID of KI6314. I called the number and almost immediately got a female person who mumbled something I could not understand very well. I told her I got a message to call this number about a debt. I told her I am not in debt and asked what this is about. She hung up on me. I called back, someone picked up the phone (I could hear noises in the background) but never said anything. I hung up and blocked the call. With my phones, a blocked number will not ring at my house and will give the caller a busy signal every time.
EVERYONE WHO IS BEING CONTACTED BY THIS COMPANY SHOULD READ THIS PAGE FROM THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU:
I called back this # and got an address for this place. I pretended I was going to make a payment but did not give my name. The address is P.O. Box 15380, Wilmington DE 19850. According to the FTC, you have to notify these people in "Writing" stating that you want them to stop calling. It does not matter if you owe money or not. Just make sure if you send a letter cc: the Attorney General's Office in the state you live in.
Also, here is the link to the FTC site with the info: http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/credit/cre18.shtm
Can you stop a debt collector from contacting you?
You can stop a debt collector from contacting you by writing a letter to the collector telling them to stop. Once the collector receives your letter, they may not contact you again except to say there will be no further contact or to notify you that the debt collector or the creditor intends to take some specific action. Please note, however, that sending such a letter to a collector does not make the debt go away if you actually owe it. You could still be sued by the debt collector or your original creditor.
They call every month or so. They say it's a collection call and give an ID number to give when I call back. When I call a comptuer says to hold and then it disconnects me. I've no debts, so this is harrassment!
I have try to call this company to see what they want. I get calls from them, it reads unavailable at the most inconvenient hours, at one time I did reach them, they were very rude to me. I am calling on behalf of my mom, she has been put in a NH, and we have no idea what they want or the name of the company they represent, if this continues, I will reach someone from the F.C.C stop the abuse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Automated female voice, telling me that gov. regulations require her to say that this is a debt collecting agency but giving no real ID, asking me to call the number she called from; she gave a reference number which I didn't have time to take down
Left VM from automatic system telling me to call 1-866-429-3592, giving a reference number and the name of a person (Mr Need?)
This is a collections agency that purchases very old debt and then lies about the fact that it is past the statute of limitations. They can still attach your assets if you have any, but they cannot report you to a credit bureau.
Got a call today from this company. Computer generated voice identified it as Asset Care. Did not give me a name to call back. There is no way they could have obtained my number legally, seeing as how I recently changed it and have not given it to anyone other than family and friends. I had checked my credit recently and I have no outstanding debt that would warrant this call.
They call everyday twice a day, mumble a message and accesscode and mail me letters collecting a debt I do not owe. I filed a ripofreport.org complaint, will call the 888-382-1222
number as well. Legal action needs to stop these crooks
Have received automated calls from this number for at least 3 years. At first they asked for someone with my same last name. I did not know the person and did not call back. If it had been a real person calling, they would have been told that I did not know the person, but it was always an automated call with an ID number for me to call back. I am not going to waste my time on such foolishness. Any damn fool should know by now that I am not the person that tey are calling. Now, they are telling me that they are a debt collection agency and want me to call back. I have no debts that are in collection so they can GO TO HELL! The government should put an end to such calls as this - harrassing people for no reason whatsoever. They never identify themselves or have a real person calling. I call on our congress members to put a stop to such calls
Called but left no message. After reading the other messages, I am certain it is a scam, as we do not have any outstanding bills and have a very high credit score. If they continue to call, I will report them to the proper agencies.
Apparently a computerized call, only a portion of their message came through on answering machine, so it started talking way before the beep. Have no idea who it is and will not return any call from anyone who does not properly identify themselves. We also log all calls into a database for reporting to authorities.
I receive 2-3 calls a week from this company asset care. They ask for a person with a name of a person by the same first name but different last name. No relation to me what-so-ever. Each time I call back they answer the phone without saying a company name. Each time I ask and they say asset care. They tell me they will take me off the list. Today I called and advised them that I reported them to the Better Business Bureau for harrassment. The lady responded, "Thank you." and hung up. I have saved the messages on my answering machine. They also mail statements and I have kept these also. I plan on taking this further!
These people call continously even after I told them I moved >10 yrs ago from that area and that is past the statue of limitations. They call all day on SUNDAYS! The amount was less than 150$
Yes, its a collections agency that tries to collect an old debt that you may have had. Don't give into them and don't be afraid to answer the phone! If in fact it is for you or your spouse and you owe an old debt, tell them you want them to send you a letter for exactly what the debt is for. Don't agree to oweing anything. By law within 5 days they must send you a letter stating what you owe. When you get the letter you have 30 days to dispute their claim. During this time they cannot call you. Write back and ask for a debt validation (search the internet for debt validation letter) and they must prove what they claim you owe. Credit card debts (older than 4 years old in CA, check for SOL Statue of Limits for other states) legally cannot be collected on. Basically this company buys old debts and tries to harass people into paying it when they "legally" don't have to anymore. Also when you dispute their claim add the cease and desist which is basically telling them not to call you anymore, the only contact they could have with you is through the mail. If they don't respond after that you should be in the clear but if they continue to harass, file a complaint through the Fair Credit Reporting Act and he Fair Debt Collection Practices Act through the Federal Trade Commission. I recommend you do your homework and find out why they are calling and get all the information you can to fight back. Hope it helps!
Hey Assetcare fck tards, I watching. Screw up with me and it will cost you!
I say hello, computerized female voice says goodbye.
I was an Identiy Theft Victim (twice)and now this company has started writing me. Because I was so sick of the whole credit mess, I did not use a card or finance anything for 9 years.
The first thing I found when I checked my credit was Assetcare. I made the stupid mistake of calling them hoping they would be reasonable people who would tell me what was going on. All I got was rudeness to the hilt and hung up on! I plan to write them that this is not a VAdid Debt to me. This is necessary. After that, I am going to ignore them. They gave me the name of a company that I had never heard of and have never shopped with. One thing really scares me. These people who do the jobs they offer are generally "not the most reliable people" and they have my Social Security number. The ID thieves used my real SS#. Once they used my Credit Union Debit Card to rent a car which they drove for 45 days. They used my insurance. They seemed to know eveything about me. Caution is advised. You just might say something in anger that gives them enough info to hang you.
We have been getting these phone calls from these 2 # 866-429-3592 & 866-429-3591
I have never answered these calls and when they do call from these numbers, the phone will ring for almost 5 min. I have read other comments on here and if this is supposenly to be a "collection agency" why don't they send a bill every month? Maybe we all should call our State Attorney General Offices and file complaints against these people so maybe they will investigate who they are and if they are a legit co. As to my knowledge, we do not owe anything. And especailly do not owe any medical bills. This is harassment. It should be stopped.
My husband called this number back 4-10-08, and turns out it is a medical debt-collecting company: AssetCare, Inc. He told them we do not owe any medical bills and if they continue to call (which they did numerous times) we would contact our lawyer. Today (4-14-08) we received a "bill" in the mail, and a threatening letter to pay them $3888.00 for past medical bills. (On the back of the letter are 12 listed emergency medical visits). I called and someone picked up; I told them we received a "bill," etc. and we do not owe them. She didn't let me finish and put me on hold. No one ever picked up so I hung up and tried calling back and got a busy signal each time (about 5) calling. Tried using my cell phone and received a recording. Hope this helps someone understand what is going on. They want to collect money at any price.
i recieved a bill notice from assestcare for $195.10 from EMP of Harrison County. number one i have never lived in harrison county and i have never needed their EMP sevices. so tell me how i can get a bill for sevices i never asked for.
They are calling me.Sorry I can't talk,I am a FAX Machine
Beware of this people triying to steal money,Do not answer your phone.
I received a computer generated call twice from this number. I called back the second time since it claimed to be a debt collecton agency. I was curious since my credit is good. They asked my phone number and I wouldn't give it but she knew it anyway. I pressed to find out what was going on and she told me my number wasn't showing up as having debt. She told me it was a random system that called numbers - not something a legit debt collection agency would do. They also told me they were calling from Mobile Alabama.
Calls almost everyday and NEVER(!) leaves a message.
My answering machine picks up call...but they do not say anything! Caller I.D. say's William Schultz from Scottville,Michigan! This is the 4th time this week!Has to be a telemarketer!
These folks keep callling, the message says hello and goodbye. I am tired of getting harassed by these bottom feeders. I called the number on caller id and got to a live person who immediately put me on hold for 5 minutes. I hung up and redialed same thing again. Third time I told the person not to hang up or I would contact the localo police and report them for harassing phone calls. I still didn't get anywhere as soon as I said that they hung up again. What can be done these guys need a lesson.
They have been calling for over a year now, they call me twice a day usually- they will ring and ring, then they will call me back again and ring and ring (20+ times). I have answered in the past and it was a recordered Mr. Mead call me back message, when I call back it rings a few times then it always hangs up on me. I looked into reporting them to the BBB website, but I couldn't find where they handle these type of situations. It's quite annoying when your a home business and have to stop what your doing because the phone won't stop ringing.
I've been receiving calls from this collection agency now for weeks. I was finally able to speak with a few of their very-rude agents today. The first one hung up on me when I tried to ascertain if they were looking for my twin brother or my son who share the same name...the agent said "I ain't got time fo no games" and then hung up. After I composed myself, I called again and tactfully asked for a supervisor...the agent begrudgingly agreed to patch me through. I then spoke to a rude and ignorant supervisor who continued the barrage of attitude. I think I'll be reporting them to their respective Attorney General's office...what a joke!
go to this Better Buisness Bureau website and file a complaint. I did. It works!
Have been getting numerous phone calls from Asset Care Inc. saying they are a debt collection agency. Called them up when we received the first call and talked to a lady and she said that I owed a bill from Global Universal Mastercard and that Citibank took them over and is trying to collect this debt that I owed since 1994. I supposedly had applied for this credit card in 1994 and paid on it for one year and then stopped paying on it. The thing is that I never have had a Mastercard then, before, or after. I don't know how they got my name and they are using a name that is no longer used on any of my legal forms or under my SS number. How do I get them from harrassing me?
Assetcare, Inc Calls several times a week. this has been going on for a little more than a year now. for the past month or so they call my home phone and my cell phone at the exact same time just like today. i have told them in the past that they are calling the wrong number but they do not care. i have reported them every time but that has done no good.
They have called several times today and no messages left, I don't answer these 800, 866 or other numbers. Sometimes it is on my ID every day.
They call in the morning I am at work. They leave a very garbled message telling me it has to do with debt collection. They also call after 8:30pm.
This is supposed to be a dept collecter for our local light company. This is supposed to be a debt from 1995, @ an address where I didn't even live, NOR have I ever lived there. Thay had my ss# and everything. I asked y this never showed up on any of my credit history, and she told me that they are a non-reporting agency. Then, she wanted me to give her my banking info and we could settle this for $30. less then the charge. So I told her to send me a bill and I would do that. She told me that we would have to do it now, they wouldn't send me a bill, and she INSITED , THAT I give her my banking info. When I called out local electric company, (PP & L), they have no record of ever turning me into collections, and that I should dispute this. I called Asset Care back to tell them that they needed to call PP&L, because I was disputing this chg, and they refused to do that. Told me an investigator would be in contact w/ me. Then, I called Asset Care back for an address, and its in Delaware.

I have a telezapper. I picked up the phone, heard the beep, said "hello" and an angry sounding voice said "good bye" and disconnected. I have never heard such venom in those two little words before. I'm glad I didn't have to have a conversation with this person.
These guys scam people into paying for things that aren't theirs or don't even exist. They call with this number and with 866-429-3591
You are better off to ignore them and do not call them back!
The name of the co. is asset care, they are a collection co. however they never have they person that lives at this residence. They are rude and sound as if they are teenagers with food in their mouth so that you can't understand them. Maybe they are a new age type of hacker trying to get into your computer through the cable modem? Or Maybe not?
The following info was provided by Renee futher down the comment list and is very helpful
Here is the weblink for filing a complaint with the Do Not Call PUC list.
Please....everyone needs to file an official complaint.
After speaking with the PUC, they say NEVER to call the company back, as they will capture your phone number and claim you are a legitimate customer of there's by proof You Called THEM.
Also, Keep record of date and time to report to both the national DNC and the state DNC registries.
The state of Texas fines the companies $5,000 for each call. The national DNC agency fines the companies $11,000 per call. Keep a list and call the agencies once a week to give them each call time.
To file a Texas complaint: 888-782-8477
To file a National complaint: 888-382-1222
) You may also file on-line at the web address previously noted.
Unfortunately, she said they sometimes still won't stop calling, even after a fine. Satellite TV just was fined $6.8 million, and continues to call she said. ;
They don't realize that we are not anwsering our motherluving fun.
I just blocked 866-429-3591
and 866 429 3592 from AssetCareInc,Wilmington Delaware
This is a fake company,trying to steal money .Dumb Ass
Get calls from this number a few times a week. "The law requires that we notify you that this is a debt collection agency" or something like that, with a reference number. First time, called back, put on hold for 10 minutes so hung up. Next called from cell phone three times and each time I was disconnected. Not sure if this is even my supposed debt. I used to get calls about once a week with an important message for "Mark Tompkins" have no idea who that is, do not believe it is the person who lived here before, but perhaps the person who had my phone number before.
They keep calling, I keep ignoring. If I was able to pay you, you wouldn't have to call me....!
"this is the irs we'll call back in 45mins..." or "this regarding a personal employee matter..." they're dum.
AssHoles from AssetCareInc.(Wilmington,Del) trying to collect WHAT?
if any of you have comcast phone service, just pick up the phone, when you hear a dial tone, hit *60 and it will walk you thru the process of how to block phone #'s so they can no longer call you. I just called my phone company (Comcast) and they said this was the best way to stop unwanted calls. Hope this helps!
AssetCare has contacted my husband about an old debt that was paid off more than 7 years ago. They claim that NCO is their client which is a different collection agency that provided them w/this info. After several inquiries of trying to verify this company, who is NCO and add'l info pertaining to this so-called debt...they were not able to provide me w/any reputable information. They say over and over again that they are a collection agency and they are trying to collect a debt. Beware consumers..do not give out any personal information to this company. Report them to the BBB in your state. Also, they are very abusive especially when you are trying to get info about this company. They say the name of the company so fast when the call is answered.
This company (Asset Care) has been calling our business line for over two years seeking a person who has never worked here and nobody here knows. Repeatedly asking them to discontinue has done no good.

Like everyone else, I've been contacted by this "company." I did call back and had them mail me documentation. The "Documentation" contained and account number for "Haven Emergency Physician" and some treatment codes, nothing more. They could not tell me the hospital or doctor's name. The Haven Emergency Physician according to Assetcare is Haven Physicians Group, a country wide organization of emergency room doctors. I asked a friend of mine who is a ER Doctor locally and he has never heard of this group (shocker). Googling "Haven Physician" returns nothing useful either. I filled out the complaint form on the State Attorney's website for my state. I suggest everyone do so.
Have been getting calls for over 11 months now, I have not called them as I did collection for over 10 years I know this is not the correct way or law to collect any debt. Plus I don't owe anything that I know of and nothing has been mailed to me asking for a bill to be paid - smells like a scam to me. I called the state police who referred me to the FBI after being transferred many time I spoke with the dept that was suppose to investigate fraud when there is money exchanged as I have not loused any money at this point - they pretty much could to nothing! This company is either after your SS# or anything else they can get from you. My MOTTO: "If a company does not identify themselves or what they want - I certainly to not owe them the courtesy of a return Phone call!" This was their auto contact for months after that my daughter said did you Google the number well I have many times now and I still smell a skunk! But still they call weekly sometimes daily!
I had the same experience as many have reported here. I also checked with an attorney and he advised a couple of things that might help other people. 1-- check on the statute of limitations for a judgement on this debt(in va. it is 3 yrs.)/ this blows them out of the water since they are trying to "fraudulantly" collect on a debt from 1998. 2-- tell them to "cease and desist" from contacting you by mail or phone / this puts them in direct violation with the states atty general and the FTC. 3-- DO NOT give them your social or confirm any part of your social security number. The bottom line is they are violating the FTC Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA)

Unknown Name on caller ID, did not leave a voicemail
they have been callinf for several months now, a few times they have left message for two different people and they are not me nor are they at this number. i have reported them every time but it seems they can do what they want because they are a collections company. it does not matter they are not collecting from me. For everyone else they are calling,if they are calling for you. you can send them a registered “Cease & Desist Letter” and fire them…yes fire them and they can no longer contact you.
These people keep calling asking for Janice Garsis (spelling?) and it's computerized---BUT----I called them back and asked them to take my number off their list because they are calling a number that I have had for almost 2 years now....they keep calling. Yesterday they caught me on a bad day and I reminded the lady that my number was supposed to be removed and she got nasty with me so I fired back and threatened to call the phone company and she hung up on me. Their company name (they say) is Asset Care.

Got a call today from this number and after I answered, a computerized voice said, "Hello," and disconnected. About 1/2 hour later I got ANOTHER call and a computerized voice using my previous married name said to call them back and use a reference number. Nope. I've added our number to the do not call list and, knowing that any call from me to them could jeopardize any leverage I may have against them, I will NOT be calling these scammers back.
Called today...left no message, as usual. They hang up as soon as my answering machine kicks on. Seems as though it is an automated dialer.
i never been in a e.r.room ,so they say, billing me $244.00 ,but i can sand one time payment of $122.00 one thing ,i live in a small town , there is (no) E R ROOM ... don't send money don't call them,they got I.D.caller,don't call (read Renee 2006-08-21) P.S.if you don't own it don't PAY it
I was the one who posted the post before this one. DO NOT GIVE THESE PEOPLE ANY MONEY!!! They knew of a bill that I really do owe and said that they were the ones who are in charge of it now. I called what I thought was the old company in charge of it and they said they (the old company) was still in charge of it and they didn't know who these Asset Care people were. I have been scammed. They have gotten $244 from me. I have called Asset Care back twice and have been cussed out for a total of 1 hour and 15 minutes by two people. They are rude... they wouldn't even send me a bill in the mail he said I was too mean and I didn't deserve another bill. And they aren't registered with the BBB. I asked. Please people stay away from these people.
I didn't answer. I looked on this site first then called back. They were a legit credit collector. They even let me pay the bill off for 1/2 the amount. I saved $300 :)
I got a letter from AssetCare and callled. They asked for the account # on the bill and I gave it to them. But they wanted me to ask me questions to verify my information. I said no, I cannot do this until they (AssetCare) told me who they are where they got my information. The person hung up on me. I tried to call back but can't reach anyone. I call the company that I am supposedly to owe money to and my account has a zero balance.
The funny thing is that no matter what phone I use to call they are not taking the call any more. I am trying to figure out who is this company.

They called and I answered the recording saying to call back a Mr. Meade at the above number. After being on hold for 30 minutes I talked to James, who stated they were trying to read Georgia Taylor. Since that is not anyone who lives at this house I told him it was a wrong number and to quit calling us. He stated he would mark it as a wrong number. These people are annoying.
