Wouldn't leave a message, call almost everyday. Called back once and got connected with a Neil Owens whom of which could not verify any of my own information or who he was actually trying to reach. I do not currently have any debt, through anything...so I am unaware to why I keep receiving calls. Blocked and reported to the FTC and the BBB.

Caller ID Shows "FREE CALL TOLL", but I believe it to be "Stephens Michaels Associates" (A debt collector – also 866-201-0940). They leave an automated message for someone not at this number, telling you to delete the message if you are not the person. So I delete it! Also: I see from other sources, there are a number of complaints and law suits against this company.

This number has called me several times a day every day without exception. The person they are asking for is William Wills. I have no idea who he is other than apparently 15 years ago he had my current phone number. I picked up on the recording to find out their name, corp. address and info so I could write a letter telling them that this residence is not William Will's and that I am on the do not call registry. I wanted to write a letter telling them to stop, however no one ever picked up and the recording just kept repeating itself over,over and over. If Stevens & Michaels is a law firm then they should know it's illegal to call wrong numbers and to be persistent with their harrasments.

A woman called asking for my wife. When I told she was not available and asked if she wanted to leave a message she said she would try her other number. I am now going to block the number. I am sure they do not have her cell number.

a better add. for these bottom feeder dc's is:
63 Range Rd., Windham, NH, 03087 #603-537-1747
people please dont do anything stupid if you do pick up! these are only debt collectors. they buy your old debts for pennies on the dollar and make money off of you. it is not the original creditors calling. these debts are sold 3, 4, maybe 5 times. never give out any info AT ALL! nothing! do not feel beholden to them. get your credit report and find out whats on there and from who, for the original debt.

Almost forgot ... It’s considered unwise to set your John Hancock to any paper you send to a debt collector. You don’t want to find that through the magic of digital imaging you’ve “signed” an agreement you’ve never before seen.

While I always advocate moving a debt claim discussion to a paper trail, I disagree with any advice as from “Ann Onimus” to send windy fist-waving missives which often are barely understood by the sender. Simpler is better. It’s silly to stoop to the level of the worst collectors and make all manner of pre-emptive (if not empty) threats, to say nothing of showing all your defense cards too soon. They should already know the laws, why tell them how to do their job? Their ignorance of the law puts damage money in your pocket, capiche? SMA is a chronic violator, so may not disappoint in that way.

Ann’s reading of the five day deadline is faulty, calling into question her comprehension of the laws in general. A collector must send a dunning letter, “per the FDCPA” everyone else has read, within five days of first contact. Usually the letter trails behind the first mysterious phone call from the agency. Nothing in the FDCPA compels a collector to validate or even reply at all, in five days or five years. Validation is merely the legal hurdle to overcome before pressing on with collection activity.

Send them this letter VIA certified mail with return receipt requested DEMANDING validation of the alledged debt they are calling about. Per the FDCPA they have five days to respond:

VIA CERTIFIED MAIL

Dear {insert name of collector or company},

I am writing in response to your (letter or phone call) dated {insert date}, (copy enclosed) because I do not believe I owe what you say I owe.

This is the first I've heard from you, or any other company on this matter therefore, in accordance with the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Section 809(b): Validating Debts:

(b) If the consumer notifies the debt collector in writing within the thirty-day period described in subsection (a) that the debt, or any portion thereof, is disputed, or that the consumer requests the name and address of the original creditor, the debt collector shall cease collection of the debt, or any disputed portion thereof, until the debt collector obtains verification of the debt or any copy of a judgment, or the name and address of the original creditor, and a copy of such verification or judgment, or name and address of the original creditor, is mailed to the consumer by the debt collector.

I respectfully request that you provide me with the following information:

(1) the amount of the debt;
(2) the name of the creditor to whom the debt is owed;
(3) Provide a verification or copy of any judgment (if applicable);
(4) Proof that you are licensed to collect debts in (insert name of your state).

Be advised that I am fully aware of my rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Fair Credit Reporting Act. For instance, I know that:

Because I have disputed this debt in writing within 30 days of receipt of your dunning notice, you must obtain verification of the debt or a copy of the judgment against me and mail these items to me at your expense;
you cannot add interest or fees except those allowed by the original contract or state law.

You do not have to respond to this dispute but if you do, any attempt to collect this debt without validating it, violates the FDCPA.

Also be advised that I am keeping very accurate records of all correspondence from you and your company including recording all phone calls and I will not hesitate to report violations of the law to my State Attorney General, the Federal Trade Commission and the Better Business Bureau.

I have disputed this debt; therefore, until validated you know your information concerning this debt is inaccurate. Thus, if you have already reported this debt to any credit-reporting agency (CRA) or Credit Bureau (CB) then, you must immediately inform them of my dispute with this debt. Reporting information that you know to be inaccurate or failing to report information correctly violates the Fair Credit Reporting Act § 1681s-2. Should you pursue a judgment without validating this debt, I will inform the judge and request the case be dismissed based on your failure to comply with the FDCPA.

Finally, if you do not own this debt, I demand that you immediately send a copy of this dispute letter to the original creditor so they are also aware of my dispute with this debt.
