Again, same leeches have somehow found my spouse's name and is using that with their toll free number to trick an answer on caller ID. I've got a good call block on my cell, but for those who don't : WATCH OUT & do not answer. They're bad news.
I called back and requested that they not call my number anymore. The representative asked for the number they were calling. I asked who they were looking for at my number, and it was not anyone in this household, no-one by that name lives here. He said he would note that my number is a wrong contact number and quit calling. He was polite, and I will find out if he was telling the truth if I get no more calls from Midland Credit.
"Justin Rolseon" called from "MCM". After five minutes he admitted that it was "Midland Credit Management". It took another five minutes before he would give his address as "8875 Aero Drive Suite 200, San Diego, CA 92123", because his company's policy required him to check with management to see if it was acceptable to provide identification as required by federal law. He was obviously calling from India running some kind of debt collection scam, trying to get credit card numbers. He refused to say where he got my telephone number. He then made up a story that maybe the person he was asking for lived at my house or had the same phone number before; neither of which is possible unless he lived in a tree in the woods that was here before the house was built. Then he said that maybe he was calling a wrong number, which is obviously ridiculous, since no same person calls the same wrong number 18 times. He eventually admitted that "Justin Rolseon" is not his real name. The same scammer also called most recently on July 19, 2009, with a very similar M.O., but using a different faked caller ID number, and also gave the same address, so this scam has been going on for a long time. Previously, this same scammer called on 3-Jul-2009 at 3:05 p.m., 11-Jul-2009 at 10:13 a.m., 12-Jul-2009 at 3:48 p.m., 12-Jul-2009 at 6:00 p.m., 12-Jul-2009 8:38 p.m., 13-Jul-2009 at 2:07 p.m., 13-Jul-2009 at 3:01 p.m. (twice in the same minute), 14-Jul-2009 at 12:07 p.m., 15-Jul-2009 at 10:04 a.m., 15-Jul-2009 at 2:11 p.m.,16-Jul-2009 at 12:38 p.m., 17-Jul-2009 at 7:53 p.m.,18-Jul-2009 at 9:56 a.m.,18-Jul-2009 at 4:13 p.m. Each time they refused to say why they were calling. The FCC and FTC have simply ignored all complaints, as is their policy. One of the previous criminals involved in the scam gave the name "Lynn Malkovitch", but most of them refused to give their names. In fact "Lynn Malkovitch" immediately hung up when I asked her to spell her last name. This same scammer also uses the fake caller ID 877-864-3526
. This is part of a large, long-running scam operation that goes by various names including Midland Credit Management, Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, Valentine & Kebartas, IC System, Portfolio Recovery Associates, Accounts Receiveable Management, Allied Interstate, Bureau of Collection & Recovery, Chase Student Loans, Chrysler Corporation, Enhanced Recovery Corporation, FMA Alliance, GMC, HSBC, Juniper Bank, M. S. Gerald, NCC Business Services, NCO Financial Systems, United Credit Bureau, Watson Nelson & Associates, and Regional Adjustment Bureau. They probably use many other names, these are just the names that the scammers have used when calling me. Many others are simply unintelligible on the phone or refuse to give their name but appear to have a similar M.O.
Called that number, recording says Midland Credit Management. outside calling service. Pakistan/ India.

research found out this one buys up old debt- looks up phone records of anyone from US with similar names- and calls at times-- not legal times..., also a collections for tmobile. never had tmobile, also called my land line 4 times yesterday, never left answer on answering machine. rule of thumb i use if no msg left whom they are, whom they wish to speak to, and anything with any combo of 800 numbers, it does not get answered or a call back.
I got a new number and now I receive a call at this number every day at 10am like clockwork.

New Mexico Mar 24th, 2014
They call repeatedly but don't leave message. The last time, I picked up but said nothing. A man asked for someone I have never heard of. I don't owe anyone any money. Not sure if this was just a wrong number or a scam.

Mississippi Mar 15th, 2014
The call starting at 8:00 in the morning and then they change numbers. These people need to give up I won't answer. They never leave a message. Very annoying and that is what they are trying to do so you will answer the phone.
Why call and not leave a message? Most people work during the day!!!
Tired of these effing people calling my dang phone!!!!

They call, but never leave a message.

Sunday morning and I received this call at 9:00 Twice yesterday. I am on the do not call list. Please stop.
I do not owe any money to anyone. In New Hampshire
Phone Number Report: Somebody or some computer at this number ((877) 237-0512), just keeps calling and hanging up when I answer or whenever the answering machine answers, No clean messages yet. Don't even bother answering.
These people have called my landline everyday several times a day. Today I answered, spoke to a "Nadia with MCM". I notified her that both of my phones are on a "do not call' list and to not call me again.
This number calls my phone every single day, several times a day. No message. It needs to stop!
Calling my cell 26 times without leaving a message is unacceptable. This company has also tried my landline again without leaving any messages. I do not owe money to anyone nor want their services, they need to stop calling.
They call 4-5 times a day starting at 8AM everyday. Not sure who they are. They leave no message either.
This number calls my cell phone anywhere from 2-10 times EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! I am also on the "Do Not Call" list, which is obviously a joke of a public service because I actually have received a lot more random calls after adding my number to that list then I ever did before I was on the list!! It appears that my personal frustrations dealing with the ridiculous amount of HARASSING telemarketing phone calls I receive on a daily basis is a common issue affecting many other undeserving "victims" in this country, with the problem only getting worse as time goes by!! There has got to be a way of putting a stop to this type of HARASSMENT once and for all!! These companies have no right to impose on peoples' rights to privacy or to contact someone multiple times in short time frames without a specifically clear, significant reason or with some form of legitimately urgent/ extremely important information to deliver to the person they are calling!! If ANYONE knows of any possible ways to permanently stop these beyond frustrating and highly annoying phone calls please post your comments on this message board!! Any and all serious, honest suggestions or even just some helpful information regarding managing this problem will be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!
think keep calling no message calling 10:00pm - 6:00 am.
California Feb 07th, 2014
Much like the others, this caller calls several times a day without ever leaving messages. When I do answer I hear background noise, but no one responds to my "hello?" One time I got a recording when I answered saying they were looking for someone (not me) and to press some number if it was a wrong number. I did, and it said I had to call another number to report it being a wrong number! I'm not sure if it's a bill collector or a scam. Definitely sounds creepy though.
They are trying to collect on the amount of a bill that you were forgiven on
California Feb 03rd, 2014
My name is not fucking Thomas
No clue as to why they're calling me. Judging from the previous responses, they're trying to reach someone they can spam. Maybe it's calls from Nigeria? The fact that they're calling anyone they can, to collect on a bill for someone else (I don't owe anyone), tells me it's an attempt to get anyone to answer a call so they can try to scam someone. They called three times today. The first time I was asleep and didn't get to the phone fast enough to stop the call. The last two times I ended the call at two rings. I refuse to answer them or any 800 number, it's usually spam. I like my smartphone, just slide the the red slider and the call is ended.
They call late at night back to back and early am on weekends. They call about 8 times a day. I dont owe anyone anything!

this # calls my work number 2-3 times a day. never a message. i've received calls at my work # for a woman who had this number >5 years ago and gotten 1 or 2 of the bill collectors to stop. I'm surprised these people keep on going...

This number keets calling nu-meres times one day & day after day.
This mum kept on calling everyday of the week I am tired of it...
This number callers 10 times a day. They are harassing me with phone calls.
Daily calls this week. Once left an odd voicemail, "Representatives are busy with other customers..."
This number kept calling my home phone wanting to speak to someone else. After several calls in one day, I asked, and was told his name was "Victor", but he refused to disclose the company name he worked for. I then told him to not call this number anymore, and suggested he try to contact the person he wanted in writing. I told him that if he continued to call he would be in violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and that I would not hesitate to file a complaint. The calls to my home phone stopped, and then Sunday morning at 7:30 AM, he called my cell phone! When he asked for that same person on my personal cell phone, I told him this is not "Alice's" phone. He then said "Are you saying this is a wrong number?" Duh! In an effort to be as rude as he, I said "Well, if it's not Alice's phone, what do you think?" Then I realized I was stooping to his level and just told him not to call MY personal cell phone again, and blocked him from calling me again.
He wouldn't give me the name of the company he works for, but I see in comments above that he probably works for Midland Credit Management, and after researching them online, this is exactly practices they have been fined for in the past. Yet, they continue to allow their representatives to operate in this manner!
Fourth call today and expect a couple of more. I don't answer any of the calls.
They called me at 10am today (Sunday!) looking for who I thought was my daughter. They wouldn't say who they were just that it was a personal matter. I Googled them and decided to call back and pretend I was my daughter. Idiots had no clue I was the one now scamming them! They were calling about an outstanding balance on a T Mobile account. We have Verizon! Although he had the correct first name and home phone number, the middle initial was wrong and the last name sounded like ours (sort of) but was completely different. He then wanted me to verify last 4 digits of "my" SSN which I refused to do. He read 4 numbers off to me and I said they were incorrect. He said he'd make a note and remove the notice.

This number keeps calling my cell phone, leaves no message. Thanks...
Someone please find these subhuman cockroaches and beat them to death with a baseball bat. You will be doing a great public service. If you get arrested and I end up on your jury, I will nullify that jury because telemarketers such as these are sub-human, and need to be culled.

I called them back and let them know that the person they are calling for has obvisoulsy given them the wrong number. The man that answered was very rude and hard to understand.

Since they purchased (AND INFLATED THE BALANCE ON)one of my retail credit cards, they reported this to the credit bureau as a charge-off. So now you think you are ever getting paid because sure as hell it will NEVER be removed form my credit! Damage is done so leave it alone and do not call because I will NEVER answer let alone send you money ...REALLY?

I dont understand if theyre a legit company that they call on veteran's day & also all weekend, that doesnt make sense, most companies would just call monday through friday & leave a detailed message And it would say who it is on our caller ID, not some unknown number or just a blank nobody.
Thanks for the info. I answered once and put on hold for next available representative. Didn't know what MCM was a credit collector. Is it legal to call 4 or 5 times a day 8am to 9pm? Even Sunday? No message is ever left. I'm also on the do not call list. Apparently that does not matter. Isn't that harassment. LLOYD and OPPRESSED should both be banned from comments. Unbelievable anyone can digress so far from the topic and with such ugliness.. Save it for you FB and Twitter pages where some of your followers who actually might enjoy your point of view can read it. This is not the place for such rants.
They've been calling nonstop day & night everyday including weekends. Will not leave a message. I finally submitted an online complaint against them with "Do Not Call Registry" and one up. If you have an iPhone just add them to your contacts as harrassing caller and block that number from your cell phone in settings. Ha wa la problem solved!

Midland credit management or collection agency calls me on a daily basis, day and night, and weekends. I answered once, they were rude and hostile, and they go for the big bucks. Supposedly people owe Mullins. LOL. They actually believe someone will write them a check. It's really quite funny when its not annoying.
Called me numerous times, never left a message. I answered once and was put on hold! "please wait for the next available representative" though THEY called ME. Hung up, blocking them now
I received this call several times in the past few days. I answered the call to see who it was then the caller identified herself in heavy accent as MCM. When I asked to take a message, she quickly hang up. Looks like Midland Credit Management ??? Block it from your phone if you don't want to be annoyed.
I received this phone call 4 or 5 times over the last week. I ignore these incoming calls. It's spam and tired getting them.

Called once on 10-26 and twice so far on 10-27. No idea who it is.
Called 8:00am on my cell! No message. Fourteenth call I have received. They call on my landline also. Have no idea how they obtained my cell phone number??? I do not owe anyone as bills paid monthly. Nothing outstanding or unpaid. Nuisance calls. On Do Not Call list. What a joke for robo-callers.... According to other sites, this is a newer number for Midland Credit Management.
