Re: Angel.

NONONONONO.

The FDCPA has a very low bar for debt validation. All you need to say is three things:

1) This debt is in dispute.

2) Please send validation.

3) All calls to all phone numbers at all times are inconvenient.

Close with your typed, not handwritten name, and give them your correct mailing address.

The FDCPA uses "inconvenient" as the criterion for when debt collectors can't call--so that word is VERY important.

As for all the threats, unless you attach a completed petition to your local court, they'll just laugh. Can you imagine how many times a day someone threatens to sue these losers?

Heh. Called my cell. They do not have permission. That's illegal. FDCPA says must have EXPLICIT permission to call a cell. Meaning, permission given directly to them. I didn't even know who the heck they were.

BTW: this is for a debt that a)belongs to my son and b)was out of the Statute of Limitations for collection 6 months ago. Even if I did nothing, it would have to fall off my credit report (I cosigned) a year from today.

They have sent me a letter, so I'll just send them a nice FOAD letter in return. If they decide to sue, I'll win, as you can try to collect on a SOL debt, but you CANNOT sue.

For those who are dealing with collectors for various reasons, and don't like listening to your phone ringing all day long, the simplest solution is to get a new phone number. The BEST, though, is to pick up the phone, tell the nice person that (USE THIS LANGUAGE) "All calls to all phone numbers at all times are inconvenient."

If they have sent you a collections letter, write them back, tell them that it's in dispute that that you require verification of the debt. Add the "All calls...." language. No matter what else you do, ANSWER THE LETTER. If you don't, they can go straight to suing you. That's how I learned all this: I got sued.

The FDCPA allows you to sue THEM for unfair collection practices. If they are calling a cell, and using an autodialer, BONUS! The TCPA has some pretty strict rules.

All this, beyond changing your number, requires the strength to talk back, to learn about the laws, to either find an attorney who'll take your case on a percentage basis, or to learn enough about the laws to represent yourself.

You can win, too, if you spend enough time learning about the laws. I won against a junk debt buyer. Was scared silly, but I won.

Not true- my son opened a account for storage and listed me as a alternate contact person with my name address and phone number only-several yrs later he lost the storage and the storage company turned his balance over to their collection agency- that 1 yr later sold the bill to a third party collections agency- that erronously reported me to all three credit companies and listed "joint acc holder{ once I was denied credit I found this information out and now I have to do the leg work and prove I did not sign anything and my name was on the file to be notified as a alternate contact person. My issue with the credit companies is how any company can legally put a negative mark on r credit without any proof and they do not have to have your social security number either. Once I get this off my report I plan to sue

I keep on getting calls from these people, one particular--Mr. Millard.  Just got a phone call from him at1126AM CST saying that he was calling about an application that I had put in and that he has had it since January 2012.  Of course, I acted like I was my sister and took a message. MMMMMM...last time I checked, I put the app in with Sallie Mae, not them, and the app was put in several years ago. If these people would learn to have more tact...I understand that they are just doing their job, but don't call my job trying to get money out of me.  YOU CAN NOT SQUEEZE BLOOD OUT OF A DEAD TURNIP!!!!  And then on top of that, I AM STILL IN SCHOOL!!!!  Hello people...just leave me alone and I'll deal with Sallie Mae and not a freaking collection agency!!

Got a call from 716-250-4800 but in the VM, the man says to call back an 888 number with an extension. That's kind-of shady! Anyways, was calling MY cell phone about a relative. That's just creepy! Caller did not leave the name of the company or the reason why he was calling, just said he was "Zack" and to call him back.

Left message initially and I called back to speak to someone which was impossible. I left a message inquiring about the debt itself and told them that I do not deal with 3rd parties on debt resolution.  They continue to call me.

The best way to deal with hang ups,robo calls or 'this is an important message please stay on the line" than you wait. Well when someone finally comes on the line tell them you thought it was the "phone sex" folks. Then go on to tell them in very descriptive terms . Or start asking them questions like "how big are your ____?" Or "how big is your ____" ask if shaved or what . the calls stop real fast.

Jeff,
       You act like a teenager. You cry when you don't get your way! You use insult to cloud your responce. Sure you make points that have fact. I'm the one who took down CAMCO. Google it. When on gets tired of your tactics one pounces on his prey! Last Year. I went to court over a medical bill that I paid. I did not to the letters or phone calls to my home. In court I showed the Judge the paid bill. There was a seven day grace period asked for by the plaintiffs Lawyer. He tried to argue a recording they made of a phone call they placed to my 87yr old Dads house. Dad said "These people keep calling me to talk to you".... I was not very polite! Judge dismissed the plantiffs case. I then counter sued.. Awarded $20,000! After 3 months they finaly paid! Jeff bold talk! Hard to get you folks to pay your debts!

Some woman called, I ask her to identify herself multiple times, and she just kept repeating her name.  I figured it was some bogus charity and said, "DO NOT CALL" again please.  I am keeping a record of some of these numbers, and forwarding them to the State and Federal Attorney Generals.  Have a nice day is usually the way I close the call.

Keeps calling from 716-258-4800, says it is Dale with Offices of Med Law.  Important to call back at 866-316-3248 ext. 4788.  I do have past due credit cards. But they are using an old name.  I don't deal with creditors, my attorney does.

Get repeated calls from this number, frequently at early hours, i.e., 6:00 a.m., and then almost hourly after that.  Anytime my husband or myself has actually spoken with a person on the other end (they often meet our inquiries with silence, then a hang up), we have been told that they are looking for someone we have never heard of.  We have explained this multiple times, and have asked that our number be removed from their system, to no avail.  They have been calling in this fashion for almost 11 months now.  We feel harrassed, and we haven't even done anything wrong!  When we try to call back to complain, we get no response.

Newest tactic as of late.  Claim neighbor can't receive long distance calls so please bring this info to them.  They look up an address on google than see who lives next door.  They claim the neighbor has given my number as a contact for their long distance calls.  Neighbor say B.S., he can receive all calls.  These collectors probably look at these web sites to see who's talkng about them.

My family has no outstanding debts and excellent credit. This place is calling. They called last Saturday to leave a message a man called Newmaster? Niehouse? said that my dad had to call back or his 'name sake' and didn’t even give the right name. When they talked to my mom today they kept asking for the daughter but they don't even have the right name. My mom told who ever called today that she doesn't have a daughter by that name which is true! They told her they got their information from someone who gave them this number. So then this jerk gave my mother a lecture in honesty and hung up on her! What a jerk! The balls of this guy...I would like to call back and give a lecture in integrity. If these scammers had any morals they would stop calling. If they call again I'm going to start the process to file charges of harassment. Then we will contact the better business bureau in their area for a complaint. My mom called this number back to ask for their address. So who ever answered asked why…she told them she had a complaint…then they hung up on her. So a quick a google search you can enjoy thier address also.


Here’s their address:
Redline Recovery Services, LLC - Buffalo
2350 North Forest Road, Suite 31B
Getzville, NY 14068
716.250.4800

Here's an e-mail address to someone in HR:
hr@ulq.biz

Please send them a nice note to let them know in writing to take you off their list...then you can sue the crap out of them for harassment if they keep contacting you.

I received a letter from Redline Recovery, called the customer line, and was treated like a criminal. The lady said I owed money on my Banana Republic card, that I had like 5 years ago and wanted me to pay over the phone right then! I contacted my friend who is an attorney. She looked the company up and verified that they are a real company. However, she advised I research my rights. Turns out you don't have to pay any more than what you initially owed (credit card balance), even though they'll try to make you pay for years of fees they've tacked on. Apparently, they buy your account from companies like Banana Republic if you've missed a payment, let is sit, tack on fees, and then hunt you down. I did research, found I did owe $79 on my old account, but Redline wants me to pay $304! The only reason I didn't pay off my old account was because I thought I had and forgot about it when I never received another statement. If you do pay these people, use a cashier's check - DO NOT give them access to your checking account!

They called me and left messages over and over for a man I'd never heard of while I was out of the country.  When I got back, they called again the next day and I answered to let them know they had the wrong number, but all I got was told off by some snarky woman about "common decency".  Common sense would indicate that a voicemail of a 20 year old woman with an Irish surname isn't the Middle Eastern man they were looking for.  Total idiots in need of some professionalism.
