Shawn from Provest called to verify my address said he had county papers regarding my property. Said they went to my brothers house too. I told Shawn someone has banged on my doors and windows and actually loosed a glass from so much banging at 6:30am for 2 days. He apologized and would fwd info. I called bank and they never heard of provest and do not work with them-that I should call police.
I got a call from "ProvestLLC" her name was Shannon I called" press your partys ext or o for operator press "0" and
there is no "operator
They called today. Did not leave a message. My house foreclosed in 2013.
Tampa number. Called my cell. I did not answer. No message left.
This is a warning to everyone, if the company PROVEST contact you to obtain illegal information stating that they are with the Attorney Genl office out of Florida or a Lender / Bank / Foreclosure Company or with a Credit Card company in order to obtain your personal information, contact the Attorney General office in your area as i did or call the FBI.
Proverst call me on February 21, 2014, and stating that they were with Florida Attorneys General office, i was scared wondering why the Attorneys General office in Florida wanted to talk to me About my property been foreclosure on in Florida. I own no real estate in Florida, I then call the number back after the young lady Diane hang up the phone on me, and found out that the 813-250-6450 number belongs to a company PROVEST COLLECTION LLC in FLORIDA. They claim that the Investor at GLM Mortgage Capital LLC was bringing foreclosure action against me, and that they were selected to serve me COURT Papers. They even told me the name of the Attorneys involved in the Foreclosure Action lawsuit. It turns out that this was all a scham,turns out that this was an old foreclosure action from many year ago, Furthermore, the property that they were inquiring about is in the processs of been modify. I will contact the Attorney's General office in New York as well as the FBI to report the matter. what they did was wrong, committing fraud, by lying and stating that they were associated with the Florida Atty's Genl office.
they called my husband's cell and then mine for his ex-wife who passed away two years ago. wtf?!
Got a call from Provost wanting to verify address... I said yea, that was my address and hung up.
Figured it has something to do with my Dad's house... which it did... but was told by atty. if these
people show up at door...or on property...tell them to leave, close.. door, wait three minutes, if
not gone... CALL POLICE. My attorney filed to get these bozos to stop the harassing. which
My sister and I received calls from these people..wanting to verify address as "we have documents to send to you". After prodding finally got told that they were hired by client to find people and the
papers are from Harris Bank.... BEWARE... these people serve legal documents to people, such
as foreclosure, divorce. etc. Do not answer any of their questions and run to your attorney's office.
ProVest is paid according to how many people they sucessfully servce.
El once again
1st I get a Toll Free Scammer, now here's this PROVEST LLC. I have no idea why they're bugging us. This was again on 10/25/13 at 4:06 PM CT on our same Landline. DNC & Unlisted never stops these bozos & we get so sick of it.
I got a call from this number and he left his name (Mark Alexander) and wanted me to call the number back. I will not....
Consumers across the country report that they're getting telephone calls from people trying to collect on loans the consumers never received or on loans they did receive but for amounts they do not owe. Others are receiving calls from people seeking to recover on loans consumers received but where the creditors never authorized the callers to collect for them. So what's the story?
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation's consumer protection agency, is warning consumers to be on the alert for scam artists posing as debt collectors. It may be hard to tell the difference between a legitimate debt collector and a fake one. Sometimes a fake collector may even have some of your personal information, like a bank account number. A caller may be a fake debt collector if he:
is seeking payment on a debt for a loan you do not recognize;
refuses to give you a mailing address or phone number;
asks you for personal financial or sensitive information; or
exerts high pressure to try to scare you into paying, such as threatening to have you arrested or to report you to a law enforcement agency.
If you think that a caller may be a fake debt collector:
Ask the caller for his name, company, street address, and telephone number. Tell the caller that you refuse to discuss any debt until you get a written "validation notice." The notice must include the amount of the debt, the name of the creditor you owe, and your rights under the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
If a caller refuses to give you all of this information, do not pay! Paying a fake debt collector will not always make them go away. They may make up another debt to try to get more money from you.
Stop speaking with the caller. If you have the caller's address, send a letter demanding that the caller stop contacting you, and keep a copy for your files. By law, real debt collectors must stop calling you if you ask them to in writing.
Do not give the caller personal financial or other sensitive information. Never give out or confirm personal financial or other sensitive information like your bank account, credit card, or Social Security number unless you know whom you're dealing with. Scam artists, like fake debt collectors, can use your information to commit identity theft ? charging your existing credit cards, opening new credit card, checking, or savings accounts, writing fraudulent checks, or taking out loans in your name.
Contact your creditor. If the debt is legitimate ? but you think the collector may not be ? contact your creditor about the calls. Share the information you have about the suspicious calls and find out who, if anyone, the creditor has authorized to collect the debt.
Report the call. Contact the FTC and your state Attorney General's office with information about suspicious callers. Many states have their own debt collection laws in addition to the federal FDCPA. Your Attorney General's office can help you determine your rights under your state's law.
I work for provest and we don't call you unless we have made numerous attempts to try to serve you legal documents..
This number called me. No message. Don't feel right about need to get info on who is this
I got a call for Provest on 9/3/13. I could clearly understand the guy on the phone. He explained that he has court papers for me regarding my mother's estate and he needed to send someone to my home to deliver the documents. I verified my address and even explained that my property is gated and locked so whomever delivers the document should call me first. Further, he said the documents would be delivered early the next week. I was asked to verify my siblings' addresses however' I refused.
I didn't think anything else about until Sunday, 9/8/13. My husband wasn't home and my daughter and I were in our family room. She got up to let the dog in and noticed a truck in our back driveway. This is an extra driveway on our property that isn't fenced. She opened the door as I was getting up and the car tried getting out quickly. The driveway is narrow so the driver made a U turn and dug up some of the dirt. The truck then stopped at the base of my driveway. I approached inside of the fence and motioned for them to roll down the window. I wanted to explain that it was a private driveway. They would not roll down the window and they actually began snapping pictures of me. After about 3 minutes, the truck flew out of the driveway and was gone.
Being concerned, I called the police. They told me that a private investigator had contacted them and told them they would be by my property that day. They also verified that is was a 2010 silver Explorer. Considering I told Provest to call and I would happily take the papers, I am confused. Why would a private investigator come and not give me the papers? Why would they take my picture?
I'm very confused, concerned and scared.Since so many people have said that Provest would have my SSN, as well as my other info, that's worrisome but they also have my pic too!
I don't know what to do about this.
LEARN TO TYPE IN ENGLISH
This is probably either about an old debt she had or they are looking for someone with the same name as your deceased mother. If you have a probate attorney for her estate, pass the message to them to handle.
Got a voicemail about wanting me to call back about my deceased mother is this a sick joke.
They can't hear you here
Got a call from them and didn't answer since I didn't recognize the number. Thanks everyone, I have a pending foreclosure case for a property that's so far underwater and I no longer care to own. The lender has refused to do a mortgage mod, deed in lieu or short sale. They can have it back then, credit be damned.
813 250 6450 This person is harrassing me and keeps calling, not leaving a message
Provest is a process serving company a really big one. I used to work for them. The "skip tracing" department is staffed by private investigators who either they are trying to verify defendant's addresses they weren't able to serve court documents or they were hired by attorneys to find addresses in the front end to see where they need to send the summons once the case is filed. Part of this involves calling phone numbers that are or were attached to a person at some point. Also, relatives, neighbors and possible business associates. I think they may also verify customers phone numbers. They may also work for other types of creditors, I was in the side that does the foreclosure cases.
Yes, this looks like a foreclosure paperwork serving company. There was a voice mail on our phone saying the name, Provest, and they had legal documents for me. They wanted me to call their number 813-250-6450 and reference some case number or claim number. They must be trying to make us think they have something good for us. Yes, we are losing our house because I've been laid off again thanks to the evil of Google buying Motorola. We have our home listed with a realtor as a short sale with little interest from any showings. It's mortgaged so far underwater we look up at the underside of the Titanic!
813-250-6616 someone from this # called us today 5-9-2013 , said his name was Bruce . he said it was very important for us to call him back, but did not say what it was about . after reading all the post here we will not talk to him .
thank you for all the info.
got a call today from a man from this number and said can I speak to so and so? I flat out told him, listen don't call my cell number without first identifying yourself a**hole. You are calling MY number, the least you can do is have some courtesy and first say who YOU are, where you're calling from, then who you want to speak to.. He said, I apologize, and hung up. LOL..........
Today, i got a call from Nicole Smith(Provest) asking if i am the owner of my rental property. She wants to confirm my mailing address, (which is my primary residence) so she can send my Court Certified Document. So i asked from where? She said from the county. Very strange ..so i asked why county is sending me the document. She said she is just delivery company like fedex and has no idea what the document is about.. According to her I will receive a cerified mail in 7days so sign and get them..all day I was worried what this could be..so I started google about this company. Their company website looks quiet trustable until i google some more then I see some foreclosure fraud that they are involved with. I have no foreclosure issue with my house. I do not even want to sign on their certified mail. Tomorrow, I am going to call her and tell her not to send cause I know who they are now..
Call received from this number asking to provide me some document of my property, she was confused about my address , just making sure ... lolz ..
Received call from Provest LLC at 9:37 AM 813 number. Again caller seemed hoarse or as one put it "a smokers voice". Very very hard to understand message basically impossible to understand names she was saying. After four tries on max volume, answering machine, figured out names not me or anyone living at my address or has lived here in past 20 years. Called back number, extension got very nice person, told her names on call not at this address. She said she would make note on case file not to call back and even thanked me for calling back. But I was ready to fire back if someone got offensive.
I just posted this to another site as well. Received a call from "Cindy" at 813-250-6610 this morning. My colleague answered and had to ask "Cindy" to repeat herself three times because she so deliberately mumbled JUST the name of the company, which was eventually Provest. "Cindy" would only say it was in "regard to a personal business matter" when my colleague asked what the call was in regard to.
I have no business with Provest. I had a short sale, but it is completed and I have a HUD-1 and a very nice attorney that Provest can speak with instead. In addition, I have no debt of any kind. My attorney worked hard during my short sale to get very specific language into my short sale approval documents from my lender, which state that the short sale completely forgives the deficiency and that they will not pursue collection. The mumbling and evasive behavior have all the hallmarks of a scam.
