I was a first grade teacher. Making a decent wage until I ran into a nasty mean assistant principal. My contract with the charter school was not renewed. Up until that summer I had been excellent at paying my bills every month always on time. Unemployment did afford me to be able to continue to pay my creditors. I tried making deals with them to no avail. Now I'm working a 40 hour week only earning $ 17 an hour. I'm nearly keeping my head above water. Every couple of months someone new comes along to hassle me. I don't answer phone calls or reply to mail. When I get a better paying job I will do my best to pay them off in a timely manner.
Its called, 1 800-LAWYER
They call repeatedly day in and day out. I have NO idea who they are looking for. They keep calling and never leave a message but call call call. This is stupid. We owe them NOTHING. How do we stop this?
I have no idea who you are or why you are calling me. I do NOT owe anyone that I am NOT current with. I have no idea who you are trying to reach. You call my house numerous times a day and it is very annoying. I work nights and am tired of getting woken up by your stupid calls that you keep making and NEVER leave a message.
Received call on my cell from 800-741-2100 - googled it and found complaints - I did not
authorize or ask anyone with a 800 # to call my cell. I did not answer the call.
Received call today from this number. The person on the other end was looking for someone other than me and said the call would be recorded; I let her know she had the wrong number and she said she was sorry and hung up.
Did not answer.
please stop calling me and my wife Mary George
I just put my phone number on the do not call list under the federal trade commission. I have been getting calls from this collection agency who is looking for someone I don't even know and they have tons of numbers from this same company! I've told them over and over that they have the wrong number but they refuse to stop calling, as if they don't believe me! I also have been getting a lot of scammers calling too.
If they keep this up, I've got all the numbers stored in my phone and will be reporting them! But I'll see after 31 days, if they continue to harass my family after registering my number in the Do Not Call list.
The do not call registry does not apply to debt collectors
keeps calling wanting me to get a loan and
I keep getting calls and nobody will leave message and other times I will have message stating " Thi is a legal matter and all parties must call back to give their statement including the one who issue this legal matter before the date of trail."
This type of calls being happening since I paid my debt in full. And it all show on my credit report paid in full and settled.
As of October 16, 2013 total of message and phone calls are 200 and still counting.
Good luck to all who still getting these type of message or any other relating to this phone number.
They keep calling our house. I told them we have had this number for over 3 years. They are looking for Joseph Jue.
If you are getting calls on your Iphone download a app called Iblacklist and add them to it and you wont get anymore calls, it does cost $12 but you can find cracked copys online.
Works a treat.
This number keeps calling but never leave a message. Have been caught in scams before and will not answer strange calls unless they leave vm which they never do
If by "they" you mean debt collectors, it's legal in the US to call workplaces until ordered to stop.
§ 1692c. Communication in connection with debt collection
Really? More like look in the mirror.. Pot meet kettle..
Congratulations here your award for the day:
Keep calling, do not say why or who they are. Call them back to get number removed from their list. They agreed, but they STILL call me.
Whenever I see the number, I tell them they have the wrong number or do not answer at all.
Are they even allowed to call peoples jobs!?!?!? They are calling me at my job!!!
I saw a missed called from this number. No message left.
I have had 4 calls from this company but to my knowledge I have no collection. I called back the company and they could not find an account under my name. When I gave my phone number, I was transferred to an extension of the person who called me. I left a voicemail stating my name and number advising this person if this account is not mine to cease contact with me . This number has called me back twice since. Both times leaves no voicemail message. But it is definitely coming from this number.
I get these calls too but I have an app called WhoAreYou. It ditches the calls as soon as they start to come in. It's helped with all calls that give the numbers but not the "Unknown" numbers. Give it a try.
it is ltd financial.collections.they call me occasionally cause i owe them money.i dont have it so i hang up.to get angry when you dont pay and the collectors call to collect is ridiculous.just hang up if you cant pay but if you can and your just being cheep then what do you expect.
The Green People
Calls from this number are coming to my number that used to be with someone they are looking for.
Having said that . . .
Of the many messages they have left, I have learned alot by listening to the agents talk while they are waiting for a person and not knowing that the answering machine is recording them.
So, if you do owe someone money here is what I picked up in their conversations between themselves:
1) They said that the lowest settlement the company will take is 35% but they start at 75-80% when talking with the debtor.
2) Each state has a certain number of years, usually between 3-5 years, before a statute of limitations kicks in and the debt is no longer collectible from the debtor so they cannot legally try to collect it.
Yes, they are trying to collect money from people that owe it AND it is up to all of us as citizens to know the law and our rights in these circumstance especially during these still challenging times.
Thank you for this website and all the information you provide.
Call several times a week and either hang up or ask for my name
Believe it is a scam or identity theft outfit.
Refuse to say who/what they are --- fun to insult them
Once a debt has been written off by a company, and have they taken the right off from the government, I don't understand how scumbags like ltd. can come along and either buy it up for pennies on the dollar or even remove your information from their trash and force someone to pay to them ~ complete strangers. This needs to be changed. It shouldn't even be allowed! So many people have lost jobs, businesses, etc. in this horrible economy. I was paying a debt to a company after my husband lost his job. Money was not coming in regularly and who can live on $784 twice a month and pay everything? They dropped me after I was 4 days late on a payment because the funds would not be available...it was an auto draft, I even called before and they wouldn't cancel the auto draft from my bank or postpone it...it didn't go through because I am not signed up for the overdraft protection since there is no savings account to pull from! Anyhoo that caused overdraft fees, dropped from the payment program..no prayer! Now I am getting calls from these people...Woman who speaks in a deep, almost inaudible voice, pronounces name wrong, account numbers, address yadayadayada. Then my neighbor comes over with her cell phone and shows me the call on her phone on which they called her to inquire about me and wants to know if she knows me and lives by me! That is an invasion on my neighbors privacy and I told her that she should tell them that she will be contacting her attorney if they call her CELL again. They are ruthless and you are right I can't even imagine having such a horrible job. Obviously they don't care about themselves, their own character or anyone else! Desperate people doing desperate things. And if they don't know that good people do their best to pay and no one, and I mean no one knows what changes are around the corner that may put anyone in the same predicament. People want to pay their bills but if they don't have it...they just can't. $#*t happens! Someone once told me that they succumbed to their tactics, paid them, they wanted more and years later another collection agency sued them for the same bill. They need to be put out of business. And shame on the original debtors for dealing with such scum as ltd.
This company called with a local number coming up on caller ID as I have caller block on my phone and have blocked several other attempts to claim I owe a debt to a company I never heard of.. Calvin told me that often when they call out it picks up the area code that they are calling....bogous. If I remember about this charge from 2008 that I never had and want to make arrangements to pay on it to call him back, LTD financial is a third party collector for Calvery Collection Agency.
I am turning this over to my attorney as this is not my charge and Texas Civil Statue Sec.16.004 states that statute of limintations in the state of Texas is only four years.
Tired of bottom feeders trying to fleece honest decent folks.
