I keep receiving calls from this number and won't answer it I have a cell and am going to see how to block it
Started receiving 2 calls a day from the Professional Bureau of Collections however they never state the name of the company or reason for calling. They send out fictitious letters stating you are behind on your payments on the letterhead ofthe company you have the credit with however the phone number provided for the contact is not to the credit card company but to the collection agency. They will call everyone in your family, friends, & neighbors. Report any calls right away to the Federal Trade commission. Please STOP calling me!!
The collection agency has to provide proof of any outstanding debt therefore proceed with caution before agreeing to
a settlement. You may may also have the file closed if no supporting documentation is obtained without prejudice so they
can never harass you again.
Called my cell. Did not leave a message.
Under the fair credit protection act they can call whomever they want to in an attempt to collect their money. This includes neighbors, employers and family. If you don't want a debt collector calling other people in an attempt to find you and collect their money you have to get that person (neighbor, employer, family member etc) to tell them not to call them anymore, until they do everyone is "fair game".
Pissed off customer
I recently took out a car loan and believe they sold my information. I have NEVER given out my work number and now they are calling me. Seriously pissed off.
They call 2-3 times a day but never leave a message.
They called the damn PATIENT line at my work! I'm going to be calling them and advising that I will SUE for harrasement. It's obviously a patient/physician line with the messaging you have to go through first and they left a contact number with someone who is supposed to be speaking with PATIENTS...patients who desperately need to speak to someone about their cancer(s). I dont even know what debt they are trying to collect?!?! Regardless, they should'nt be digging through whatever source they're using and taking precious time away from these people. I have direct number...they need to stick with that if they really want to reach me.

1800-866-2528 ext 2203, a Mrs. Sarganis called me at work and would not get off the phone. Harrassed me to pay settlement or into 4 lump sums, and would ask me to hold on, checked with someone, then back into pressuring me to pay amount that I can't afford. I asked for a lower amount, and letting her know I am going into debt consolidation for the debt.
Finally I hanged up after she refused getting off my work phone. However, she still on the phone when I tried to call my counselor, and tried to work. I asked her to please get off the phone, then she repeated again on making my payments today.
I did not give out my workphone and donot know how it was obtained by this number, this Mrs. Sarganis.
Calls constantly but never leaves message
Company keeps calling my place of work, leaving messages and things.
They should have your phone number, they just called you
This number called me today and it was a Ms. Cabral. She told me i had a delinquent account with a credit card and i had to pay it today. I told her i was unable to do so. She asked why. I told her i was unemployed and she said when do you get paid. I refused to tell her. Then she asked when do i get my taxes in!? And i told her i will not be getting taxes and i have not received my W-2s yet and she told me that I had to of received them already because thats the law. She put me on hold and i googled the company. Then she came back and i asked for the company address again. When she reapeted that they were at a PO Box i told her yea. I see that. And she saidwell you must make a payment today and i hung up.
I received a call earlier today, couldn't hear much but the guy said he was calling from "Northern Bay". Told him I was at work in a loud vehicle and couldn't understand him asked him to call back but hung up abruptly before I could finish telling him when was a good time. About 4 hrs later when I was having dinner phone rang and just let it go to vm, no message so I googled the number and found this post.
I thought it was from a realtor we met over the weekend but the "Northern Bay" name didn't make sense. At least I'm prepared for their scam. No outstanding debts in almost a decade so they have no business calling me.
Thanks for the info.
I am receiving harassing Phone Calls to my company cell phone several times a day. I work on job sites and do not want any more of these phone calls.
Deceptive call center. Called my cell phone. I called them back and told them to take my number off their list, they responded in a confused manner and hung up on me. Two company names are used. Open Nature Foods answers and then transferred me to the Prof'l Collection Bureau.
it is a collection agency out of Maryland. They are attempting to collect a debt
Scumbag debt collection agency...........absolutely do not give them any information. They also sell any information they collect.
call me a don't says nothing
Who are these people? Why are they calling my business?
They keep calling me. They do not leave a message. When I call back, no one answers. Very annoying!! I do not know who they are.
I tell them EVERY year I do not know this person they are looking for and had this number for years. I tell them to remove my number and they do for a year then it starts all over again. I am tired of this.
no name please

These people are calling all of my realatives asking them if I ever lived there very annoying please stop these calls harrassing
I just received a call from this number at my place of work! They were very rude to the receptionist and tried to get information about me. Our receptionist did not give any information but took a message for me. It sounded very fishy, so I googled the number and saw all these reports! Needless to say, I did not call back. Thank you for reporting this!
got a call from this number today asking for my mother inlaw ruby, the caller ask if my husband had power of attorney over her as she is sick, i ask who was calling and they said, erik ewell from PBC. wanted my husbands name but I told him he was askin to many questions over the phone, and that my husband was not here to call bACK BY FIVE, SO THEN HE SAID HIS CALL WAS URGENT, AND i NEEDED TO give him my husbands cell phone number, so when I said no he told me to have my husband call him back, at the 800 number.
I was called at noon today, Jan 22. I do not answer phone numbers that have a caller4 ID that says Out of Area. However, after reading these messages, I can say that I have had this number for over 7 years and I do not owe anything to anyone. So they have called a wrong number or are fishing for info about someone else. There are only two people in this house and neither of owes anything to anyone. I did write a letter to them telling them to quit calling me. I also blocked the number but the company may have many numbers and call tomorrow with a different number so a letter takes care of them all. After doing this with another collections agency I never got another call.
No message left but let it ring until my answering machine picked up. Called them back and she said Professional Bureau of Collections. No one at this phone number owes anyone anything nor does any of my neighbors that I actually know. Getting ready to find an address to tell them to stop calling me. If they are legit they will have to stop calling. I also blocked the number but I am sure they have many 800 numbers to harass you with that is why writing to them stops the entire company.
they are phonies, fishing for your personal info! do not give them any info, always ask for them to send you info in the mail, i would even have a lawyer look into anything they send you!!!!
I received a call and the caller asked to speak to a Linda. I told her she had the wrong number. She then said this number is linked to an address (and gave me a specific address). I told her I had no idea who she was talking about and she had the wrong number. Then she asked if I had a number for this Linda person and I said No, I don't know who you are talking about. She then asked if there was a Manager or someone else she could talk to regarding a condo association. I said you called my personal phone there isn't anybody else. I eventually hung up because she wouldn't provide me her name or where she was calling from.
