"Denice Davis" asking for someone I never heard of. She said that she was employed by "Regional Adjustment Bureau" and refused to give their address or phone number. She switched the call to "Don Johnson" who tried to give a P.O. Box but I told him that we needed a physical address in order to serve a warrent. He gave the address as "1900 Charles Bryan Road Ste. 110, Memphis, TN 38016". and their phone number as 800-829-7204. Mr. "Don Johnson" admitted that he has no idea who he is calling.
Note to Resident47: The FDCPA is useless. It is not enforced at all. Only the state governments have been of any help; they can shut these scams down immediately. But once the state shuts down one scammer, they either change their name or they sell your phone number to another "debt collector" and the scam continues. It never ends. This has been going on for five years, with more than a dozen "debt collectors".

To a ''not me'' case I always recommend putting the agency on notice, just as you would if you were the target and the debt claim was invalid. Send a ''cease-communication'' notice via USPS Certified with return card. This is the method promoted by the FTC and many consumer watchdogs, and the only way to set a legal landmine, as such a notice is ignored at their risk of a lawsuit from you. You may already be due some payback if you can prove you've endured abusive or misleading treatment in an effort to collect debt.

Learn how to exercise your FDCPA rights as an alleged debtor at FTC-dot-gov. See also if your state laws are stronger.

Recent comments on 800Notes peg this as Regional Adjustment Bureau, another chronic lawbreaker with pushy reps. They appear to be working a student loan portfolio.

I don't know how you're approaching phone directory changes, but I've found them relatively quick and painless through SwitchBorad and Verizon SuperPages, which uses a WhitePages engine last I saw. All the directories tend to use the same database, so if you seed one or two they'll all be updated shortly.

Collection agency looking for our daughter who has not lived with us for 10 years and 4 addresses. White Pages does not allow us to correct our listing and they NEVER answer the phone.
