I'm in receipt of your letter. I have no intention of paying DirectTV anything.The facts of the case since those lying weasels didn't tell you are this.
1. In May 2007 I signed up for Verizon's three for deal, which included DirectTV for one year. I honored the contract and dropped DirectTV since I don't like their services.
2. I paid Verizon, which had DirectTV as part of the bill.
3. When I switched back to cable, I got a notice of a cancellation fee from DirectTV. I called DirectTV and told them I had the service through Verizon. They stated that I had a two year commitment with DirectTV.
4. I called Verizon and asked what the term for DirectTV and they stated one year. I asked do I owe a cancellation fee to DirectTV. They said No and I don't owe anything. I wrote DirectTV and stated the case. They said I owe them, that the agreement they had with Verizon was void. I've been harassed by colection agencies, and have refused and continue to refuse to pay this charge. I asked DirectTV and I guess now through you, show me a DirectTV contract with my name on it saying I agreed to a two year term of service.
If they can, I will pay the charge. Until then the amswer is NO!
Have a great weekend.
I guess I'm going to have to get a lawyer now too.

I resolve this matter a long time ago, I don't now why I keep receiving this letters. They need to update they information, this is ridicuolos.
Francisco S. Oct 17th, 2008
These jerks sent me a letter about resolving my debt with Macy's privately..."pay the full balance in three equal monthly payments. To take advantage of this opportunity, simply enclose your payment in the envelope provided, along with the completed "Certificate of Reinstatement" form. Once reinstated, this account will be reported to the national credit bureaus as an open account."
I have been paying more than the minimum on my Macy's account on time, and not making any additional purchases. Their amount was more than I owe and there is NO REASON to say my credit is questionable. Grrrr!
sent me a billl saying that i had a bill with T-mobile. never even owned a t-mobile phone. my services are with AT&T. Please send me any informations concerning this bill.This is ridiculus.

for those like me who have been harassed beyond belief by these bill collectors, here is a way to stop them:
get skype or vonage and then you can electronically block them forever from calling you. its just what i did and a bonus is i can call anywhere in the world and talk for any length for just 2.95 a month!
I received this same call ON MY CELL PHONE today. I saw the incoming number as an 866 number so I did not answer it. The message they left was the same one all other posters have mentioned. I don't owe anyone but have a long ongoing battle with T-Mobile where they claimed I owed them 100.00 after leaving them. I had a one year contract with their previous company and stayed for 4 years beyond the contract. When I switched to Sprint they sent me a bill for $100.00 and when I wouldn't pay that they doubled it to $200.00 and still continue to try to collect it after 3 years and many collection companies. BEWARE!!! They are blatant liars and thieves. I am just an average guy with middle-class income and have not broken their contract rules. When I asked for some sort of proof, they never would provide anything.
What a bunch of crooks! Only in America! The Jews are smart arn't they? Even in Macbeth Shylock. read it!
I can not pay for the debt that I owe T-Mobile because I am still looking for a job. When I get back to working again I would pay everything that I owe to the company. But right now I can not do a THING!
Kathy Williams Aug 21st, 2008

mary a. logan Aug 19th, 2008
I too, received this letter, even though I paid on this and I have a copy of the check that I wrote on. I'm curious about this one. I'm almost debt free and I get this in the mail. I haven't had a call from them but I've had my fair share of calls from debtor's. Sometimes even on holidays. I was so pissed off on that one. I thought, I had my bills all caught up. I'm unemployed and living on my pension check or trying too. And it is fun being here in Michigan and all the auto worker's losing their jobs.

I think they calling from India, and harassing American for T-Mobile bills.
Was rude and abusive when they called, claimed to be collecting a debt. After I finally got tired of being abused and hung up, they continued to call for the next half hour. The company has been reported to the FTC.
Laurie Dawkins Jul 30th, 2008
What can I do to file a harrassment lawsuit against the Law Offices of Mitchell N. Kay? Who can I contact to file criminal charges and complaints against this operation? This amateur debt collection opertaion has called my residence at least 10 to 20 times per month over the past 8 months looking for someone I have never heard of in my entire life. Their incompetence and desperation for revenue runs so deep that when they skip-traced for the person they are trying to reach all they saw in the phone listings was a first initial and a last name and assumed they had the person tracked down. At least 5 to 8 times a month when I am working from my home office and catch the calls, I tell the representative that there is no one by the name they are seeking at this number. I even call the number on my Caller ID and attempt to reach a manager or supervisor. I am told each time that the number has been removed from their records. Their lie is short lived and I continuously get harrassed with more phone calls by extremely rude callers invading and interupting my private residence and family. I should be compensated handsomely for the stress, damage, and invasion into my home!
Ready to Sue Jul 24th, 2008
Tired of this please help. My calls are coming from 800-714-9491
Cristyl Rice Jun 30th, 2008
I suspected this was scam, and was given the phone # and control# 66759666 to inquire about pending legal matter. If they were real why havent I seen any mailings to confirm their identity? Because they are not a law firm, just posing as one.
They call every day or two for a Lora. I called 1-800-859-2974
and spoke to a woman who assured me that my number would be remove immediately. We'll see!!
I received a message from them today (04/30/08) regarding someone named Edith - not even close to my name and to call back at that number. I think they've called me at home too regarding this same Edith.
This person tried to tell me I owed them money,made the mistake of giving them the last 4 digits of my social security,wrong person,told me they would remove my name.No sry nothing.told her off,felt better.
The message stated my name and said that they were collecting debt and even left a control number.
I smell scam all over it. Do not give any of your personal information over the phone,pc etc. They can really trick you into thinking that you are owing money or breaking the law.
Jennifer Curtis Mar 05th, 2008
Some chinese person asking for someone - I am deaf and use an interpreter and they have no clue what was said.
Something about Mitchell and Kay and some reference #. no info. Sounded like a scam as I have not received anything from them and never heard of them.
THEY CALL EVERY DAY, THEY WON'T LEAVE A MESSAGE. FUCK THESE PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This was the first time they called me notifying me of an old AT&T Cell phone amount due back from 2002 - hasn't the statuate of limitations run out on this crap yet.
I keep getting the "robo-call" also, looking for a person who never lived here also. My wife father built this house before she was born, except for the area code it's only had one phone number, and she has lived here all of her life. I know darn well there never is, was,or will be a Richard Keeley that lives here!!!!
How in the heck is an answering machine supposed to hang up so it doesn't acknowledge that "Mr. Keeley" doesn't live here!
And there is no way I'm going to give them my name to "verify" that I"M RIGHT!
DDS from Mich. Feb 05th, 2008
Received two messages from them today. Called back and could not get ahold of anyone. Do I need to be worried about my credit report?
HERE IS ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE ASSHOLE COLLECTORS THAT DON'T UNDERSTAND THE MEANING OF NO! AND JUST KEEP TRYING TO GET BLOOD FROM A TURNIP. THEY MAY BE PART OF THAT CHRISTINA SMILEY RECOVERY DEBT BUSINESS THAT IS A RIP OFF AND SCAM PERIOD.
Automated message left on answering machine. The message stated a name, and requested that if I was not "this person", that I should hang up. Otherwise, if I was "this person", I should continue to listen to the message, a 3 second pause, and by continuing to listen to the message would acknowledge I was "this person". The message then identified itself as the law offices of Mitchell N. Kay, trying to collect a debt, and any information obtained would be used for that purpose. Please contact us at 877-406-4895, and refer to the control number ########.
I also received a message from them. Does anyone know who this is?
This is the same automated message given by Plaza Associates. Report them to the FCC online or by mail. If they are reported, they change names and numbers but it is essentially the same message asking a person [who doesn't even reside at the residence they are calling] to punch in a series of numbers. This is obstensibly to collect a debt. Even if you are on the do not call list, they will still call. Once again, always file an online or written report to the FCC. Do not call these fraudulent companies back. Record the dates and times you were called and if you have messages on voice mail or answering machines SAVE THEM as evidence.
There has got to be a way to stop these butt heads to stop calling
Interpretor got the phone message law offices of Mitchell NK, attempt to collect a debt. I have no outstanding debts and they aren't accepting the calls. any website or other contact information so I can bug them...phone number listed as Toll Free and I am on the do not call list. Guess they will have to send me something. Stupid....
Called and asked for an Edwin Sorbama who has NEVER lived at this address. Called the number back and got someone who demanded to know my name and hung up on me when I refused it. Called back and got some guy who said yeah, I'll take your number off and hung up before even asking for it. the third time I finally got someone from the Human Race who said he removed it! We'll see though. He probably knew that I had an Air Horn poised ready to use if they gave me any more lip!! ;)
Calling this number back, gives 866-757-4771
as an alternate contact number.
They call, and call...
Same story - I guess they have a lame computer program that searches numbers - I think most of the people they are looking for are below the radar by now...

I received a call from them yesterday about a bad debt. They said I owe Fingerhut $195.63 for a piece of furniture. I haven't bought anything from Fingerhut in many, many years, and never any kind of furniture. I asked the caller what they had for my address and it turns out to be a place I've never lived. I told him they had the wrong person, to which he replied I need to send them a letter stating that they have the wrong person. This is rediculous!!!
Received numerous phone calls from the Law Offices of Mitchell N Kay877-406-4895
). All calls were from an automated machine which gave a reference number and then hung up. After calling the number this is the address of the so called Law Office of Mitchell N Kay. #7 Penn Plaza, New York City, NY 10001. Collectors typically purchase debt even from other collectors and receive forwarded information which is seldom corrected. This is why people continue to receive calls on the same debt even if it has nothing to do with them.
Robocall left voicemail with callback # and control # in reference to collecting a debt. When i called them back, a machine said wait for next agent. he had my first name right, but spelling error on my last name, and last four of my social, said it was to collect a Bally's A/C. Told him I don't have one. Wanted to know if there was a Sr or a Jr with the same name as me. Asked to confirm my phone number so he could add it to the Do Not Call list!!!!!
got call from 877-406-4895
No ID, Identified themselves as Mitchell N Kay in an automated message. They have no legitimate reason to call me.
i got a call from them today and they left an automated message saying it is not a sale's call but an attempt to collect debt.
The account in question was supposedly resolved by as many as three individuals at T-Mobile who agreed that it was a mistake in T-Mobile's billing. This dates back to December '04. I've talked with the "collectors" many times and informed them that they are wrong and if they think they have a case, I'd be happy to see them in court. I still have all the documentation.
They'd rather keep calling. Don't know why. I certainly won't be paying a bill I don't owe.
According to Google, there's lots of folks harassed by this company and they've lost quite a few law suits.
John - San Jose Jun 06th, 2007
I was able to find out this is a collector for the law firm Michell & Kaye or Mitchell ? Kaye. It could have been a middle initial or D or A. I wasn't the party they were calling so they wouldn't say what company they represented but I think it might be the old AT&T.
Automated machine called, said call 877-406-4895
, then gave a reference number and hung up.
