Student loan company calls 2 times a day somtimes most at least once a day. i am in deferment and yet they keep harrassing me
Received call at 1:11pm today. No message. Caller Id said "Unavailable"
They are calling from Doubleday book club, Childrens Book of the Month Club, Crafters choice, Columbia House, etc. It's all the same company. Either you, someone you know, or someone who has your info has created one of these accounts. You might have signed up for the free books, and then never finished your commitment and bought the books you were supposed to, so they charged you for the books. Now they want their money. Plain and simple
Called this number on the national Do-Not-Call list. Did not answer and they left no message. Noticed on my call log that this number called at 12:30 a.m. (at night as in just after midnight) on a Tuesday night/wed. morning. Left no message then either.
dumb idiot Iranian/Pakistani/whatever who can hardly speak English leaving a message about collecting a debt. Real dirtbag. Call came in at 7:35 A.M. I could have shot him.

This is a site from a lawyer here in chicago starting a class action suit
I got this info off of another sight :
Allied Interstate (ALI): We are no longer sending accounts to Allied Interstate. However, they are still handling some old accounts that were sent to them. Phone Number: 1-800-210-0434
thats the company that uses that number and it shows that they are not getting new accounts but are trying stuff that has been settled or were incorrect etc..... from years ago ...
They are a scam stay away from them.....
I have a idea to get them to quit calling but I cant afford a flight to pakistan or india, also a bullet in the head is illegal Im sure but would feel oh so good......
why do they think that they are above the law......?
I am in on it , I asked for things in writing using the excuse that I have a injury that makes it where I can only sort out legal matters such as this on paper and they said its ok just settle up and we wont call anymore , one payment or monthly payments to your credit card and your set. I told them that by law they have to send it in writing and they are harassing me as well and that the account they are asking for is a fraud and its a scam to get my credit card and social security info.
They said the company is allied but who knows if that is true or not.... Im in for a class action lawsuit , let me know what you need..... Im in chicago so minnesota isnt that far away
yahoo is a scam as well if you use any part of their services - email - messenger or web services etc..... they sell your personal information to these companies . yet since this company is a top grossing company they get away with it.
Funniest is when I get phone calls and sales calls for Mr vlad Dracula at 1234 any st. an so on... it led me right to yahoo with one of these companies
They told me the company was allied and I owed columbia house . I dont buy cds or movies so I know its a scam.
They arent from this country I am guessing , cheap labor an all ..... we have people starving and looking for work yet we have people like this calling USA citizens
Here they started soon after borders went out of business and I know borders had my name an info since I joined the discount card program there . I wonder if they got the names and numbers from there and now are using that in hopes of getting peoples numbers, they wont mail you anything . They wont let you see a bill or anything in writing , they just want you r credit card number.
I also had a similar call from a company before saying that they didn't work for a bank at all but would lower the rates on my credit cards , just give them my card numbers .
Isn't pakistan the same country that hid the bin ladens and the terrorists? I say since they are a terrorist country we block business and phone calls from that country . We should do this with any an all countries that knowingly harbor,train and allow terrorists to hide out in their borders. they blow up innocent kids and people an then try to get our information for other scams.
received another call today about them asking for me saying I owed them for a columbia house account, which is a big joke and fraudulent account info.
As I explained to them I work in the entertainment business and by mail or at work I get all the movies and cds that are released or prior to release by all the movie studios and record companies for award consideration ( emmys and grammies and so on). Why would I order anything since I get stuff before its in theaters and in stores or on the radio?
They said well who knows you may want to hear this band or that band , and again I explained to them that I get promos left and right for FREE why would I pay for anything.
I then told them that when they called before they asked for a person other than my name and now they ask for my name because they got it off caller ID . I told them that I was recording all the calls and reporting them for fraud to the atty general an I will have a group that will join and do a class action lawsuit . He them said but sir please I am here to help you clear this columbia house account off your record, I then told them once again that they had better not put columbia house case on my credit report since it is a fraudulent claim just as fraudulent as their company, an their war dialing an dead air calls are illegal with the do not call list or not and they may not continue to call non stop at all hours of the day an night , once they called at 1 am an said by them it is 9 am..... I told them all calls here from them and any bill collector or survey etc are recorded an reported . Then they hung up and had 2 more calls from them saying that they were supervisors an wanted to settle the account , an I told them there is no account to settle .
The second guy called while I was on the phone with the atty generals office so I conferenced them in ( got to love 3 way calling ) ,,,, Now the case is being covered by the feds , the big issue is these companies close and reopen under a different name , they have a relative or friend use their name as owner and continue on.....
They call back Ill use a air horn an blast it into the phone or a rape whistle , or just goto their office and ripp out the phone wires. you know this company probally has em just stapled to the wall an no dryway over the wires.....
They call here non stop and refuse to tell me what its for or I get the dead air. They had called in the past an said my now fiance had a US bank account an she never did , since prior to being with me her now ex husband had the account but never with US bank.
I have heard bad things about US bank and I would never use them , but thats a different story. I told them since they refuse to tell me the issue and she has a legal case against them, this is my number and they are calling my house for a person who legally isn't tied to the phone an to leave me alone and 5 minutes later they call back.
We should do a class action law suit an close these guys down.... what also gets me is the fact that we have millions out of work an now not only tech support and call centers etc are over seas now we have debt collectors overseas . no wonder why we are sinking
They called me for the first time today, and only once so far. I didn't answer it because I didn't recognize the number. But I decided to call back anyway. Couldn't understand anything the man was trying to tell me except for my name. I told him I wasn't or he wanted, then said he would remove my name and I hung up.
Have received five phone calls in the past two weeks from this number. Never leaves a message.
They called me asking if I could come pickup somebody because everybody was leaving then they repeatedly called me back without leaving a message
How do you sue these crazy people who keep harassing us with these calls. We get about 5 to 6 or more a day.
F***g tired of it.
They call and ask for my mother's name. Yesterday, I told them I was my mother, and I asked that Pakistani b** to repeat the company name. I couldn't understand her, finally asked her to SPELL it for me, VENGROFF & Rollins (sounded like), but it's Williams (Google). Anyway, she wanted to verify that I was actually my mother, can you give me the house number? I told her my mother's street address, just the number. She said that's incorrect, can you give me the last 2 digits in your SSN? I told her I DO NOT give any part of my SSN to ANYONE! She got in a huff, and said well, I'll take you off the list. I'ma go off on her if she calls back!!!
A&%holes call me dozens of times per day and I don't know them and they won't stop. Do Not Call list does not work, blocking them does not work.
Scumbags keep calling me up to 50 times per day!
These dolts call my number 20-30 times per day. I don't know who they are and they still just keep on calling.
The number belongs to Global Crossing (globalcrossing.com). Probably being used by one of their sub companies. You can call them at 800-466-4600 to complain.
I got 6 calls yesterday starting at 8 something. Googled the number and found this site so I went ahead and blocked the number. I don't owe any past due bills so I figured better to just cut them off now since many people have had problems.
Got a call from this number. They asked for me by first name and when I said "This is she" the "Indian" sounding male hung up. Looks like I am in for more calls if y'all are correct but at least now I know how to get rid of them.
I got a call from this number at 7:40 this morning...lucky for whoever it was that they didn't say anything. Who calls that early!? If you don't respond at saying "Hello" twice, you're not worth my time. But 10 minutes later, I got ANOTHER call from ANOTHER 800 number...same thing.
You mean you could acually understand the person well enough to carry a conversation? I felt like a was being given a survey by Motel 6 when I spoke with them!!!!
for the past week I have gotten calls at 6:45AM and no one replies when I answer the phone. Finally this morning I spoke with someone that I could not even understand. Not to collection agencies...if you want to get your money (if it is in fact owed) get someone that friggin speaks English and can be understood!!!!! This person asked for my wife by last name. I asked what it was regarding and he mumbled about it being a business matter and if it is that important they should reply when someone answers the phone. I asked the person if they knew where they were calling at what time it was. The reply was just stammering on the phone. I hung up. My wife called back and asked what they wanted. Without an address or an acct number to confirm who she is they seemed to know what their call was regarding. Mr. Mumbler advised her that it was regarding a business matter. When she asked him if he knew what time it was (which he did not since he was on the other side of the planet washing his cow) he said she was in Lansing, MI even though the phone number is for MTN time. IDIOTS!!!!!!
I recieved 18 calls from this very number and I ignored them all because they never left a message then over this weekend they finaly did. I had forgotten to check the message and while at work today I listened to their message threatening my life. I was scared to death. I did order books from doubleday book club and owe them under 19.00, but the threatening call was so terrifying I had to leave work and spent 2 hours or more in the local sheriffs to file a complaint. I gave them the number they called and got a man they could not understand the first time who would not tell them what it was about. He called them a second time and a woman answered who also would not give them information. The cop then said he googled it and it appeared as though many had received the call and it was a scam to get credit card numbers from people. The threatening call was viscous and has me in a terrible condition. Not quite sure if I should let it go or call FBI.
