I cannot believe after reading all of the above posting regarding SRS Associates & the 888-900-3120 or 800-801-0065. They have been calling me regarding some debt that I took care of a long time ago. They threatened to send my co-signers & family a supoena notice. I am livid right now and will continue to let this ride because I did contact my attorney and gave him everything i have on these a***oles. I am done and tired of having to deal with such idiots who have nothing better to do and harass hard working individuals. SRS Associates is not answering to the number I have on file, nor does the office exist in NJ...I HOPE THE A***OLES WHO CALLED ME AND HUNG UP ON ME IS READING THIS..."YO MY MAN LIKE I WAS SAYING COME KISS THE A** THAT THE SUN SHINES UPON IT...YOU WILL BE CAUGHT AND I PRAY YOU SERVE SOME EFFING M/F TIME BI****S !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Received an automated call supposedly from David Goldstein about "business I am already conducting," even though I don't know this person or this 800 number, asking for a callback at 800-801-0065. Tried to call but the line was busy. Will try again and report my findings.
Found it quite annoying that his recording didn't even wait for my voicemail to pick up before it started talking, so I didn't even get a name, just some very bully-ish sounding voice about "the business I am conducting" and a number to call back. Sorry, I didn't give this number out to any of my creditors, it's a new # actually and it really makes me upset that they even found it, not that I'm surprised... these are the people I have heard will call distant relatives, ex-boyfriends, and neighbors as well, just to try and embarrass you. We are in the middle of filing for bankruptcy.
They are a small collection agency that seem to employ bully tactics to get people to pay on old debts. Send them a Cease and Desist letter.
Their address is....
Superior Recovery Services & Assoc. (SRS)
80 S. Main Rd., Suite 112
Vineland, New Jersey 08360
Bills collectors from collection agencies cannot do any of the following:
Call you repeatedly or contact you at an unreasonable time (the law presumes that before 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m. is unreasonable).
Place telephone calls to you without identifying themselves as bill collectors.
Contact you at work if your employer prohibits it.
Use obscene or profane language.
Use or threaten to use violence.
Claim you owe more than you do.
Claim to be attorneys if they're not.
Claim that you'll be imprisoned or your property will be seized.
Send you a paper that resembles a legal document.
Add unauthorized interest, fees, or charges.
Contact third parties, other than your attorney, a credit reporting bureau, or the original creditor, except for the limited purpose of finding information about your whereabouts.
Call the FTC or sue a collection agency that breaks these laws.
Don't even talk to these guys. It seems like they have quite a reputation for being underhanded. I'm sure they will probably change their name soon and continue where they left off.
My sister recieved a call from a Frank Shapiro saying that he is suing me and that it is a, get this, a lawsuit of "Kevin vs. State of Missouri" but that it was a company and not a person that was suing me. Weird. Why would the state of missouti sue me through a company? They also pulled up background info about me, and had my ex step-mother (ex of about 12 years) and her side of the family that I havent had contact with in over a decade. I have no idea if the lawsuit is true, they said I would be served papers in a few days or something. I suppose I'll find out then, but I thought they didnt want you to know about papers served?
They left Call back with my sister at 1-800-801-0065
I received a call from SRS from Rebecca something and she was very rude. First of all she called my parents home to find me which is unacceptable. I don't want my parents in my financial business. Also, she hung up on me the first time that I called. She made it sound like they were calling from an attorneys office and they were in the process of filing a judgment against me. I told her to file it.
FRANK SHAPIRO WAS A PLEASURE TO DEAL WITH. HE HELPED ME AND MY WIFE SAVE A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF MONEY ON A LAWSUIT. HE SHOULD BE COMMENDED. HE PROVIDED ME WITH ALL DOCUMENTATION AND HE EVEN GOT MY CREDIT AMENDED!!! THANKS MR SHAPIRO
Company Name- SRS and A**.
These people called looking for a relative saying that they needed to speak with him to push his "application" through or something. They made it sound like he was coming into some money. I think not. I asked what kind of application and they said due to "privacy rules" they couldn't tell me. Uh huh. What a crappy job. Yes, I think people should pay their bills but please don't harrass people just because they happen to be related to those who don't.
I got a call from them as well. " They need a resolution for this matter and if they have to take any further action it will not be able to be reversed. It would be in my best interest to call before close of business today. Shawn Schwartz was his name.
for your information
just so you know people... SRS is not like other collection agency's every client they have does file lawsuits if the account is not resolved in a resonable amount of time... it is a requirement from their upper management that they wont accept a client if they wont sue the debtors for non payment so be careful next time u get a call from SRS take a second thought about refusing to set up payments
TO ANYONE THAT DEALS W/ THESE SCUMBAGS
First of all they are not allowed to say civil case. law suit or attorney Before returning the call buy a tape recorder and record the whole conversation. Most likely they will violate the FDCPA(Fair Debt Collection Practices Act)! It costs nothing for an attorney and you can sue them and probably get a $1000 and maybe even ur debt cleared. Michael Kahn & Frank Shapiro are not attorneys!! They can do nothing to you. The only client that actually legitamately sues is Bank of America or Nu Island Partners. The rest is b*llsh*t! They can't do anything to you in regards to pay day loans they are illegal in most states of the US. The rest of the stuff they collect on is garbage that you don't even need to pay back b/c your over the time allowed. General time is 5-7 years. Varies depending on your state. Trust me sue them and make sure u record any conversations you have and save all voicemail messages!!! You'll definately get money!
TO ANYONE THAT DEALS W/ THESE SCUMBAGS First off this sounds like an ex-employee who was fired for things they shouldnt have been doing. And nothing worse than a crying ex-employee who is just looking to get revenge on a company for something they did.So grow up and just pay your bills and then you wont have to deal with the collection agencies who are hired to collect the money that is owed to them.
I paid the balance!
Ha hahahahahaha! I told you to sue me 2 years ago when you called, because I have my documentation and I paid the balance. Still waiting.
Totally confused now. Envelope states David. A Goldstein Co., LPA 326 High St Suite 500, Columbus OH 43215
But, letter inside Has Richard Cordray Ohio Attorney General st the top. Says $3500 owed for unpaid taxes. Think again. Hello what the heck is this crap. Signed for by Kim Rogers Leagal assistant to Stuart Kellar.
So are they a collection agency for the Ohio Attorney General and are they allowed to put the Ohio Attorney Generals name at the top of the letterhead, Trying to figure out who to call

They cant do that to you. All they are is a collection agency. I worked there for almost 2 years and hate how they lie to people to make them pay. thats why I left them. Yes Dave and Kelli its me. They lie to people make you scare and you feel like you have to pay them. They also will take your credit card information and run a payment 2 to 3 days before it is do and will try to get payments on accounts that have been closed. THIS IS ILLEGAL and soon SRS and Associates will be shut down I will make sure of that!!!!! First do not pay anything until you get a copy of your credit report. Then check it make sure you owe this and get a lawyer Do Not Pay Them!!!! or gave them any account numbers. Also you will see on here some comments saying pay them I didnt and now owe alot of money or other smart comments to make them look good. Its them so dont be a fool. One more note they also use fake names like Frank Shapiro or Samantha Green they are fake names. CALL THERE BLUFF if you do call them back ask for Dave or Kelli Grieco the owners or the Manager Michael Grant. They are all liers and bet they will hang up the phone.
Jackie is probably the collector posting this made up story about the judgment trying to scare you all to pay your debts.
I doubt any complaint was ever filed.
I too received a call from a Ms. Reynolds who claimed to work for SRS. We made arrangements for my acct. to be settled for a certain amt. I like a dunce let them take out the funds from my acct. and they took out more than they should have by my count. I will never answer another 800 call from anyone because after getting the runaround from Mr. Cole Turner at SRS who never returned my calls to someone named Mike who claims the settlement was for a different amount than Ms. Reynolds and I agreed upon I am in the hole for $200 that I don't have in my acct. Mike was slick enough to try to tell me that they were within their rights of the settlement and that if I wanted my money back that I would not have a settled acct. with them. Never, never, never deal with these people they are slicksters who try to make you feel like you're the idiot that can't hear or add. Just wanted to vent probably won't get my money back no way!!!!
Hey...... these people calling from INDIA, CHINA and other countries. where hundred of call centers are running for getting money by fraud from USA and UK citizens... ITS ALL SCAM...
How it runs..........(for debt collection)
It starts when people tries to get loan online, they fill all their personal detail on that sites and problem starts from this point. all your information is sold to collection agencies (call centers) at $4 to $6 / Person, whether you got that loan or not.
SO what actually they (Call Centers) do...
1. They have all of your information includes: your name, social security number, address, employment detail, 2 references and a detail of amount.( which you didn't get)
2. For dialing purpose call center gets USA or UK numbers. they calls through various softwares (like: ICALL). And have various phone numbers.
3.They hire college students or some people and prepare them to communicate with you. (training classes for getting a bit of American accent) and gives them fake names (American).
4. They makes a write up for leaving message to threaten you. like:-
"This message is intended for Mr. john (your name). john the very second you receive this msg i need you or your retained attorney to call me back. the issue at hand is extremely time sensitive. my name is ..........., and i am calling from financial accountability association, my call back no. is 123456789, i am repeating this for you john 123456789, john don't disregard this msg and call me on my number back. if i don't get any call from you or from your attorney........ wish you good luck, bye"
5. If you pick up phones ...they will threaten you by saying... that federal govt or federal legislation is going to pressing lawsuit against you and your social security number. and try to make you remember that you took a pay day loan and never paid it back... so it is very easy to threaten you by saying that "such company falling lawsuit against you for your unpaid loan".
( you don't know for which loan he/she talking about and try to remember your last 2- 3 loans (which you actually got and never paid)). At this time you stuck in the situation.
(according to my perception you never know "how many loan you took in last 1 or 2 year"- sorry-- joking)
6. They will tell that you are charged against these allegations:- 1. Theft by deception 2. collateral cheque fraud
7. They will tell u that they have sent various mails to inform you but u never replied and that was the only way to communicate you.
8.They will ask u to write a Apologizing letter that ?your intention was not bad and you never wanted to run away with that money & you want to fix that issue by paying ..... amount.?
how to avoid them...
1. By telling that you have an attorney (Both criminal and bankruptcy). give any number by saying "call to my attorney"... they won't call.
2. By telling that u know : Its ALL SCAM .......... they will hung up.
3. By telling that its not my social security number....... they will never call.
4.By asking for the date of loan taken (online)........ they can't help you in this matter (by which u can come to know about scam)
Don't be afraid.........They won't sue........
If this detail is helpful for you please copy paste this into other pages... don't be selfish.... and save other people from being fool.
My English is not so good.
I am an Indian........ all Indians are not same... you can send me mail for more detail:- firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks and help people
