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 and provides you simple tools for your own defense. It grants you control of how you are contacted, and collectors can be sued for their crimes. Learn your rights and first response tactics at FTC-dot-gov. See also your state laws for additional support. "Auntgramma" has bulleted a sample of FDCPA protections over a year ago.

I am a hearing impaired senior citizen and do not answer the phone but have a captioning phone where I go to the menu and have my recorder dictate the message to the captioner. This person keeps asking for Angela Griffin or Griffer (captioner does not no the spelling). I receive several calls during the week asking Angela to call the number back. This also happened last year too and then it stopped. My recorder says "you have reached a hearing impaired individual....."

I receive at least 5 calls a week from this number. They claim that my relative (with same last name) gave my number as a contact number. I refuse to give them contact information on this person, and the company refuses to remove my number from their computer. The representatives are rude. One representative was not rude--she said that she would remove my number, but it is not removed.

I just turned in a complaint to the Federal Trade Commission for 866-594-8641 and two other numbers from NCO Financial Services, Glen Smith. They are harrassing this senior lady who does not owe anyone anything! I hope they are punished for disturbing a sick, older woman. Thx TSACGIV for the website: http://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov

This is a zombie collection agency located in Pennsylvania. Their name is Federal Bond Collection Service, or FBCS. They specialize in buying uncollectable debts, usualy past the statute of limitations, and harrass people into paying. PAY THEM NOTHING! Note the time and frequency of their calls. Check out the FTC website for a knowledge of the laws governing collections. They are habitual laww-breakers. Also, go to www.trapcall.com and regsiter your number with them. This service allows you to block FBCS phone numbers. All they get is a disconnected message when they call you. Good luck!

Left a recording saying this was a reminder call. Very thick accent. A reminder call for who and for what. We do not answer out of area, 800 calls, unavailable or private numbers. I guess I never will find out who or what they are reminding. I can sleep at night.

I just got this number a few hours ago. I'd changed from my old number because that number was receiving constant harassing collection calls for a Juan Perez, who I don't know. I've had this new number for about half a day and I've already received four collection calls for a Sarah Jackson! So I went from one collection number to another. There's no way to win. When I told the FBCS representative that the number was new, she said I was lying and that they'd keep calling until they got payment. She then suggested that I pay the debt for Sarah Jackson so as to stop the calls. We need to expand the National Do Not Call Registry to include collection calls.

we've been getting phone calls from this company for many months since 3/08, very frequently. i talked to someone who told me that they would take my name off the list, but they continue to call. They asked me if i know mohammed park, something like this, and I told them i didn't know who that was. They keep calling 3 or 4 times a day, as of this date, 7/7/08. Ive had this phone # for many years and have never had this problem. They can easily verify this number through the phone company if they are a legitimate business.

I called FBCS back at 1-800-220-2018 and the man I spoke to was very nice and told me he'd remove my number from their system since I'm not the person they are seeking. He apologised for any inconvenience and advised me to tell any other collections agencies calling my work number looking for this person to "cease and desist" all calls and to ask to speak to a manager if they don't agree with my request.

This is indeed a collection agency, and I agree with the previous comments about how rude they are. I called the number that showed up on my caller id, and told the girl who answered that I would like for them to stop calling. The girl mumbled something, then hung up. I called back and talked to someone else. I told him that I didn't understand what the last girl said. He asked me for my name and said that they would stop calling. Then he hung up on me. No apologies for the endless calls. Their attitudes were as if I had done something wrong. Apparently, they are looking for someone named Leroy, who gave them my phone number.

Yet another call to my cell phone looking for John Asher. I also got over a dozen calls for John Asher about a year ago from another 800 number. If I ever meet John I am giving him a knuckle sandwich. Remember to NEVER give any info to these people about who you are because they will scan your credit report. So far they've called from 866-594-8641 and 866-594-8670. I must refrain from screaming at them next time.

They called looking for a family member saying it was a detective and would like him to call for some great news. I never taled to anyone it was on the answering machine. When clearing out all the messages I realized the 866-594-8641 was a toll free number and thinking it was very strange for a police agency to have a 866 number I googled it and found this site. Is lying and stating they are law enforcement legal? Oh well it's gone and if I get a call from this number again I will not hesisetate to delete it.

Company name is FBCS, web site http://www.fbcs-inc.com/ (which has the 800-220-2018 displayed on the home page), and they are apparently in Pennsylvania. They also use 866-594-8647 and 866-594-8670. In my case, they are looking for someone else - which I found out only on their 9th call. It turns out another collection agency, also from PA, was looking for this same individual a year ago. It took the involvement of my state's Attorney General's Office to get the last company to stop, and this time, I'm going to report BOTH companies to the PA AG. I am sick of their harassment. BTW, they call on my cell phone and that number is on the federal "do not call" list - and I have reported each and every call as a violation.

Note: These companies do not accept a "wrong number" notification and continue to call even after such. Only complaints to LEOs get them to stop.

They have been calling me for a week looking for a family member. When I started asking questions, they hung up on me. When I called back to speak with a supervisor they gave me another number because Nakia didn't want to lose"her dime". I called the other number 800-220-2018 ext 3221)I spoke with Jamella who was so nasty and she hung up on me. For 3 days now, they have called and hung up on me. When I called I got Jamella again. I asked her to please stop calling and she got nasty and hung up in me again. HOW RUDE!!!

I received a call from this company looking for a family memeber, however, I have POA on this family member, I asked what the call was in reference to and the REFUSED to disclose any information. When they asked about my family memeber, I informed them that I REFUSED to disclose any information. Therefore, they hung up on me. Besides being RUDE they are also disrespectful! I called the number back and bgan asking questions in relations to the company, I spoke with Monica within the company. She then realized who I was and hung up on me as well.
This company and their employees obviously have no couth or common courtesty when making calls!
 Nov 27th, 2006
They called 8:42AM PST 11.22.06. If it's a collection agency, they have nothing to collect form us. Weird they asked for "Antonio" because we got a call on 11.24.06 at 888-280-8311 asking for an "Antonio" as well. Called that number back and didn't say anything and they asked if I was "Antonio" and i said they got the wrong number.

Called 10 times in the last week looking for "Antonio". Annoying!
