Military exchange, lol! My brother works for a collection agency, your just doing damage control, lol what a pos!
Buildings are expensive and not everybody is able to buy it. However, personal loans are created to help people in such kind of cases.
This is a Military Call Forwarding Exchange Number.... service men and women overseas are allowed to make calls from their locations, it is then re-routed through this server in the D.C. area. So if you know someone in the military, you are missing calls, there is usually a five to six second delay between voice commands.
receives daily calls wonder if they are staking out the home
I am on the do not call list
These people call me 3 or times a day about a debt concerning a sprint cell phone. I never had a cell phone but it is possible My grown son may have use my name. I have spoke to these people 4 times and sent them a letter disputing the debt. unfortunately I did not send a certified letter. I am sure they have received the letter but continue to call. I consider this harrassment. What do you think?
We receive calls from this number, but no one is there when you answer. They never leave a message. "do not call" is a joke.
my mother-in-law got a few calls from this number and they ask for me and she said they got the wrong number.
They keep calling even though we have told them this is a place of business. We don't even know this "terry" they keep asking for! They have a real attitude problem when you call them back.
Get a call from this number every single day, but if I answer, I get no reply, so I've stopped answering them. Is there any way to block this harrassing caller?
dont answer but keep calling
The number rang here, but I didn't recognize it, so I didn't answer.
I heard the phone across the wall ringing at the same time that this call was coming in to my phone.
Stopped after a short number of rings, no message left.
I suspect it was an autodialer, maybe two of them, ringing similar numbers to the same office
Same here, I spoke with someone there and all they wanted was more information from me. I dont understand why and they did not want to give me more information about company. I get the call and then they hang up on the first ring. It started like two days ago non stop.
kept calling for days and all day. got so bad i had to shut off my phone and turn it back on when i need to use it. tried calling back.. no answer. so i did my research. its a call from washington, dc. more info. on: http://yahoo.intelius.com/results.php?ReportType=33&qp=202-367-9083&qf=Genita&qn=Williams&qa=127+35TH+ST+NE&qc=WASHINGTON&qs=DC&qz=20019&refer=2426&MoreInfoResult=1&RecID=0
I been getting alot of calls from this number, I did a quick search on it and heres what i found
The number belongs to Genita Williams 35th st NE washington DC 20019
this person has 11 address in Hyatsville, MD and 5 in Riverdale, MD
Thats all i could get without having to pay
I have come to the only logical conclusion that these calls & many others from different phone numbers are most likely being generated by Phone Number Look Up or "Trace" companies. They know that if they annoy people long enough the people will get curious or furious & want to pay to get the phone number's origin & who owns it so we can cuss them out.
It's a matter of out smarting you, a tactic or ploy to get you to buy thier services. Think about it, if you never get a harrasing call then you have no reason to use a phone trace company. So the companies are providing you a reason to pay them. They switch the phone number @ sometimes to mix it up & keep the harrasing calls coming, here's a few that i've had to block from calling my CELL PHONE...........202-367-9071, 215-253-7850, 651-204-1317, 800-639-6111.
So it comes down to you have to stop letting these calls bother you especially if you know you have no outstanding debts. Myself..........I don't even own a credit card & every piece of property I own is 100% paid for including all 4 cars, so I can easily ignore these calls.
this damn number calls me all day,i dont have what they are looking for! make them stop!
And they just called back......
I have received several calls a day for the past several days from this number - to my fax machine. No fax was ever sent but yesterday, it did tie up my line for a long time.
I finally called the number today and was told they were trying to get in touch with a John Smith.....come on, really?
202 367-9083 keeps calling without leaving a message, please let me know how to put them on a do not call list. Thank you.
IC Systems-calls several times a day. i don't have a cell phone with any of these companies. once you are on their list they just keep calling you. they ask for a different name each time. they always promise yto remove my nimber, then they call again anyway.
I got two calls from these idiots this morning that I didn't answer. To my knowledge I owe nothing to anyone. I do have a Sprint account, but it's current. WTF?
I am getting a lot of calls from this number but when I answer the phone no one was on the other end. Finally after many calls from them and me answering they asked me a lot of personal questions but when I asked who they were the woman said she will call me back later and hung up.
I called the caller ID number and music just plays.
calls my cell phone many times a day, i dont know who it is because i dont answer. VERY annoying.
Got a call from this number two days in a row
Stop the calls easy, legaly, on your own
Whenever you receive these calls, answer it immediately, as soon as you are asked if you are Mr. X, demand to know what company they are calling from. Upon being told the company name, tell them yes you are Mr. X. Then tell the caller that "you are to never contact myself, my family, or any of my associates by telephone ever again at any time. Do Not Call again ever."
Telling them enacts a law in collections where by after giving verbal notice to a reprehensive of a collection agency a collection agent, that collectors from that company are not to call you.
This stops the relentless calls and forces all communication in writing.
Not Bart Simpson, who the hell are you
Got call from this number. Didn't answer. Called back using SpoofID and put in their own number as the calling from number. I then got a lady on the line. I got obscure company name. She asked my name, I told her I'm Bart Simpson, who the hell are you? She then asked me the number I was calling from. I gave her the very number I dialed, and put on the caller ID screen. She asked me if I was Justin. Again I told her I'm Bart Simpson. I asked her what type of a company this is. There was silence followed by click. I knew right away this must have some collector (yes I am dealing with Sprint issues) I could tell by the immediate lack of information.
If you have time, I call them back and play with them a little bit. If I can find more phone contacts for this company, I will mess with them just to have fun with SpoofID. Consider it a prank phone call for adults. Might make you feel a little bit better about them blowing up your phone with calls, waking you from naps, stopping you mid loving, breaking your train of thought right as you were about to have the epiphany that would allow you to discover the means to pay off all your bills. I think there should be a surcharge for my time and the interruption to my life caused by their annoying insistent calls.
For most people and lots of us right now, if we had the money we would be more than happy too send it right in as required. Unfortunately, for arguably many reasons, the economy in bad shape. Many people can?t find work that will allow them a roof over their heads, meals, and necessary medical expenses, plus the extra money to pay off what ever bill got put on the back burner while unemployed. Most people are struggling to keep the lights and heat on right now. I am sure that the more compassionate and understanding collectors will be the first to be paid when people have the resources. Because through the law of reciprocity, treat someone respectfully and they will return that respect

Debt Collection FAQs: A Guide for Consumers
If you?re behind in paying your bills, or a creditor?s records mistakenly make it appear that you are, a debt collector may be contacting you.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation?s consumer protection agency, enforces the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), which prohibits debt collectors from using abusive, unfair, or deceptive practices to collect from you.
Under the FDCPA, a debt collector is someone who regularly collects debts owed to others. This includes collection agencies, lawyers who collect debts on a regular basis, and companies that buy delinquent debts and then try to collect them.
Here are some questions and answers about your rights under the Act.
What types of debts are covered?
The Act covers personal, family, and household debts, including money you owe on a personal credit card account, an auto loan, a medical bill, and your mortgage. The FDCPA doesn?t cover debts you incurred to run a business.
Can a debt collector contact me any time or any place?
No. A debt collector may not contact you at inconvenient times or places, such as before 8 in the morning or after 9 at night, unless you agree to it. And collectors may not contact you at work if they?re told (orally or in writing) that you?re not allowed to get calls there.
How can I stop a debt collector from contacting me?
If a collector contacts you about a debt, you may want to talk to them at least once to see if you can resolve the matter ? even if you don?t think you owe the debt, can?t repay it immediately, or think that the collector is contacting you by mistake. If you decide after contacting the debt collector that you don?t want the collector to contact you again, tell the collector ? in writing ? to stop contacting you. Here?s how to do that:
Make a copy of your letter. Send the original by certified mail, and pay for a ?return receipt? so you?ll be able to document what the collector received. Once the collector receives your letter, they may not contact you again, with two exceptions: a collector can contact you to tell you there will be no further contact or to let you know that they or the creditor intend to take a specific action, like filing a lawsuit. Sending such a letter to a debt collector you owe money to does not get rid of the debt, but it should stop the contact. The creditor or the debt collector still can sue you to collect the debt.
Can a debt collector contact anyone else about my debt?
If an attorney is representing you about the debt, the debt collector must contact the attorney, rather than you. If you don?t have an attorney, a collector may contact other people ? but only to find out your address, your home phone number, and where you work. Collectors usually are prohibited from contacting third parties more than once. Other than to obtain this location information about you, a debt collector generally is not permitted to discuss your debt with anyone other than you, your spouse, or your attorney.
What does the debt collector have to tell me about the debt?
Every collector must send you a written ?validation notice? telling you how much money you owe within five days after they first contact you. This notice also must include the name of the creditor to whom you owe the money, and how to proceed if you don?t think you owe the money.
Can a debt collector keep contacting me if I don?t think I owe any money?
If you send the debt collector a letter stating that you don?t owe any or all of the money, or asking for verification of the debt, that collector must stop contacting you. You have to send that letter within 30 days after you receive the validation notice. But a collector can begin contacting you again if it sends you written verification of the debt, like a copy of a bill for the amount you owe.
What practices are off limits for debt collectors?
Harassment. Debt collectors may not harass, oppress, or abuse you or any third parties they contact. For example, they may not:
use threats of violence or harm;
publish a list of names of people who refuse to pay their debts (but they can give this information to the credit reporting companies);
use obscene or profane language; or
repeatedly use the phone to annoy someone.
False statements. Debt collectors may not lie when they are trying to collect a debt. For example, they may not:
falsely claim that they are attorneys or government representatives;
falsely claim that you have committed a crime;
falsely represent that they operate or work for a credit reporting company;
misrepresent the amount you owe;
indicate that papers they send you are legal forms if they aren?t; or
indicate that papers they send to you aren?t legal forms if they are.
Debt collectors also are prohibited from saying that:
you will be arrested if you don?t pay your debt;
they?ll seize, garnish, attach, or sell your property or wages unless they are permitted by law to take the action and intend to do so; or
legal action will be taken against you, if doing so would be illegal or if they don?t intend to take the action.
Debt collectors may not:
give false credit information about you to anyone, including a credit reporting company;
send you anything that looks like an official document from a court or government agency if it isn?t; or
use a false company name.
Unfair practices. Debt collectors may not engage in unfair practices when they try to collect a debt. For example, they may not:
try to collect any interest, fee, or other charge on top of the amount you owe unless the contract that created your debt ? or your state law ? allows the charge;
deposit a post-dated check early;
take or threaten to take your property unless it can be done legally; or
contact you by postcard.
Can I control which debts my payments apply to?
Yes. If a debt collector is trying to collect more than one debt from you, the collector must apply any payment you make to the debt you select. Equally important, a debt collector may not apply a payment to a debt you don?t think you owe.
Can a debt collector garnish my bank account or my wages?
If you don?t pay a debt, a creditor or its debt collector generally can sue you to collect. If they win, the court will enter a judgment against you. The judgment states the amount of money you owe, and allows the creditor or collector to get a garnishment order against you, directing a third party, like your bank, to turn over funds from your account to pay the debt.
Wage garnishment happens when your employer withholds part of your compensation to pay your debts. Your wages usually can be garnished only as the result of a court order. Don?t ignore a lawsuit summons. If you do, you lose the opportunity to fight a wage garnishment.
Can federal benefits be garnished?
Many federal benefits are exempt from garnishment, including:
Social Security Benefits
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Benefits
Civil Service and Federal Retirement and Disability Benefits
Service Members? Pay
Military Annuities and Survivors? Benefits
Railroad Retirement Benefits
Merchant Seamen Wages
Longshoremen?s and Harbor Workers? Death and Disability Benefits
Foreign Service Retirement and Disability Benefits
Compensation for Injury, Death, or Detention of Employees of U.S. Contractors Outside the U.S.
Federal Emergency Management Agency Federal Disaster Assistance
But federal benefits may be garnished under certain circumstances, including to pay delinquent taxes, alimony, child support, or student loans.
Do I have any recourse if I think a debt collector has violated the law?
You have the right to sue a collector in a state or federal court within one year from the date the law was violated. If you win, the judge can require the collector to pay you for any damages you can prove you suffered because of the illegal collection practices, like lost wages and medical bills. The judge can require the debt collector to pay you up to $1,000, even if you can?t prove that you suffered actual damages. You also can be reimbursed for your attorney?s fees and court costs. A group of people also may sue a debt collector as part of a class action lawsuit and recover money for damages up to $500,000, or one percent of the collector?s net worth, whichever amount is lower. Even if a debt collector violates the FDCPA in trying to collect a debt, the debt does not go away if you owe it.
What should I do if a debt collector sues me?
If a debt collector files a lawsuit against you to collect a debt, respond to the lawsuit, either personally or through your lawyer, by the date specified in the court papers to preserve your rights.
Where do I report a debt collector for an alleged violation?
Report any problems you have with a debt collector to your state Attorney General?s office (www.naag.org) and the Federal Trade Commission (www.ftc.gov). Many states have their own debt collection laws that are different from the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Your Attorney General?s office can help you determine your rights under your state?s law.
