I was left this # to call back, I'm not sure for what reason, saying that there were documents to be delivered to me. They said that the documents couldn't be sent to a PO Box. I just hung up because I didn't understand, maybe I should call them back and get more information.

I know we all get really worked up because these morons lie and threaten us with legal proceedings and this freaks us out. They are not attorneys. They are collections agencies threatening you with illegal collections practices. Since it is illegal you can contact an attorney and get these idiots off of your back. I would check my credit report and see what's in it. Then contact an attorney that works on these type of violations. Don't be scared you can fight this! You have already taken the first initiative to post here! Can you imagine if everyone that posted on here sought legal counsel and sued these idiots? We would be on our way to closing them down for illegal debt collections practices!

Become empowered everyone! Besides reporting them, we can't just sit and wait and feel helpless like there's something more we can do to put these morons in their place!

They have never sued or sent legal papers! Call their bluff...esp if the debt is out of Statute of limitations. You should turn around and get an attorney that specializes in this and sue them. I did!

I got this odd phone call last night from someone claiming to be a process server.  It came from a restricted # and they went into their story the minute I answered.  The guy didn?t give a name, but immediately said that he was a process server and was needing to confirm the address for a Miss X {insert my name here} and then began to rattle off the address in order to serve court documents.  This kind of caught me off guard so I stopped in and asked him to give me more information as I was not aware I was being sued by anyone.  He told me he didn?t have all of the information and instead gave me a number to call (855-339-8860) and a docket # to give them to look up my case.  He also said that he was very sure that if I had been aware of an issue that I would have certainly taken care of it by now and that once I spoke to the law firm that he would wait and contact me back to set up a time to meet with me to serve the papers.

I called the number and the person answered the phone Steinburg & Associates (possibly Stillberg & Associates... he was speaking very fast and would not repeat) and proceeded to ask me for my docket number?. which I gave to him.  A minute or so later, he came back on the line and repeated my name and then rattled off the last 4 digits of my SSN.  I told him about this phone call and asked what it was in regards to and the first thing he asked was if I had a copy of my credit report.  I told him no and he proceeded to tell me that the case was in regards to a medical bill that I had from 2008.  I asked who from and he read me a name from (supposedly) my credit report (he asked again if I had a copy and I replied, not with me).  He told me the amount in question was for $1105 and then even mentioned that he was shocked they would take such a low amount to court.  I told him that I would be getting in touch with this company as I?ve not had any medical procedures performed and that this didn?t sound right.  At that point he told me that there was no need as the company had obviously exhausted their attempts to reach me and the case had been turned over to their firm.  He then said that it might be a good idea to go to court because it could be a case of identity theft.  At that point I told him it all sounded very odd and that I would have my best friend who is a lawyer look into it.  He quickly told me that they would be in touch to serve the papers and hung up the phone.  Now, I never had any medical procedures from that time period and I also know that in the state I live in the statute of limitations to file a suit for collections is 3 years. That would kill anyone?s right to file a claim from that time period.  I did speak to my friend who is a lawyer because I found it odd that a supposed law firm is reading information? detailed at that? from my credit report instead of a case file and wanted to get her take on it.  She confirmed that it all sounded very bogus.  After doing some research I found this site and now see that some (most) say it is a scam while others say that it might be a legit collections agency that bought out the account from another company and are trying to strong arm people into paying overdue bills.  The one thing that they all say is that whoever this is, they harass not only the person they are trying to ?collect? from, but they also have found their contact list if they are calling from a cell number and they?ve began to contact the persons friends, family and work.  Whichever the case, I find it highly disturbing that these people are somehow able to tie into a person's cell contact list and will begin to contact their friends, family and even their work. That alone seems like it would have to be illegal in some fashion.

Any other suggestions as to who else I need to contact in order to report all of this?  Also, I need to keep these people from constantly running credit checks on my account as that effects my credit score.  Does anyone know if there is a way to do that?

These people have been calling me for years, from different numbers, saying they are collection company taking me to court (for a supposed debt I do not have) and that if I do not respond I will be arrested by the end of the day.  They never say who they are trying to collect the money for, or who the debt is actually owned too.  I have asked for documentation of the debt or the "court case", they have filed, they never send anything.  They have also claimed to be police officers, for the record police officers do not contact you for debts, this is a pathetic scare tactic they use to try and get you to pay them, ask for their badge number they will not give you one, or you know a station number so you can verify the fact that they are an "Officer".  Today I came home to find a letter from U.S. Flight Rewards claiming I was eligible for two free flights, I am enrolled in several flight rewards programs, but did not recognize the number provided on the letter so I googled it...surprise surprise when I googled I found this website with all the other comments of people have left.  If you receive one of these letters please please do not answer, these people are the scum of the earth and liars out to get money from you in any way possible, so dishonest.  I have reported them several times, and I will report again.  I have NO debt and even if I did; if this was a legitimate debt collection agency they would be able to provide information to validate the debt, which no matter how many times I have asked the "officer" to provide they refuse and hang up or simply never send the information when they say they will.  Do not let them trick/scare you into believing you own anyone anything, if you did they could provide documentation of the debt and who you owed it to.  As I said this has been going on for years, I have a samsung phone so I can block the numbers they call me from, which I do and then I report them from whatever number they are using that day...hopefully some action will be taken to stop them soon, I hate to think there are people they scare into actually giving them money.

I've read alot of complaints and horror stories about this "EPA Group" or "Edison & Park Associates", but none of your guys tell us the ONE thing that we're so scared about:

"Did they ever really send out a summon (court order) to anyone here?"   (I NEED TO KNOW THIS ASAP).

I requested Debt Validation & they were able to provide that.  My debt was bought over & over until it got to them (They sent me the debt's "Bill of Sale").  I think they're a legit collection company (though they always refered to themselves as "active litigation firm") & violated every collection rules.

However, they're legit & can sue you.  And my question remains the same:

"Did they ever really send out a summon (court order) to anyone here?"   (I NEED TO KNOW THIS ASAP).

If indeed they did, then I'd bite the bullet & try to negotiate a small payment with them. ("Small" comparing to their requested amount).   But if not, then I'd gut it out & go to court to defend my case (base on the evidence that they give me so far, I guess I can only use ILLEGAL collection practices to defend.)

So anyone with a "COMPLETE" history with them please shred some lights into this.  I don't want to read another "they are a scam this, scam that" but never explain the "HAPPENINGS" and "RESULT" of your dealings with them.

Thank you!  I personally will update my "FINAL RESULT" with them in details later to help the future victims.

Bobby Roberts called my husbands corporate office.  They felt like it sounded very fishy.  They gave him my husbands office number to talk to him.  He had his social and complete credit report.  He told him you pay all your bills on time except you forgot this one little credit card.  First clue we should have gotten was him calling my husband by "Jim" he goes by Nathan.  He also listed a street address he has never lived on.  He refused to send any paperwork for the alleged credit card and said they were adding 1500 to a 500 bill if we didn't pay it.  I called him and he bullied me into setting up payments with him.  After giving him the card info he gave the wrong street address to me too.  DUH?!!!  Bells were ringing but I went ahead.  After that I started tracking the supposed credit card.  I called Roberts back and he became very beligerant and threatened court action.  He did give me the name Edison Park.  That is how I found this blog and now know it is a scam!!  Thank GOD!!  I cancelled my card, called the BBB, the MO Attorney General and I too am going to file a complaint with the FTC.  How though are these people still at it since 2011?

This guy named Bobby Roberts also called my parent's house just this past December  threatening them for me to call him within 5 minutes or else he will file papers behind my back in court due to HSBC suing me for $8000 dollars not including court fees. My brother contacted me to let me know about situation and w,hen I called bobby Roberts back he was telling me I needed to pay him $2000 to settle the suing action and that he's a litigation attorney for HSBC. He knew my SS#(last 4 digits only) my address and parents, info..he informed me that I need to provide him a credit card or debit card right away so he can process it. I told him I don't have any of that $ he's requesting and is unemployed and he tells me that as long as I give him a credit or debit card..it will stop them from serving me papers to take me to court . He also gave me a bogus case #.
Long story short..everything sounds legit until I get a gut feeling that something is odd with this convo,especially when "bobby Roberts"then tells me I need to call him the next day and provide him a list of people's names and their numbers that is going to lend me money to pay them! So I researched the, number he left and his name and came into this website and other several  websites about this guy being a SCAM!  Watch out for this guy and other guys that uses several numbers including 909-456-1890,909-456-1888, blocked calls and unknown numbers they're using.

Had this SAME thing happen to me today.  I"ll break it down in as much detail as possible for future victims.  It got pretty intense actually.

My "friend" sent me a voicemail they received on their phone from a private number today.  It stated some documents were on file for me and they wanted to send them to "my friends" address.  I'm not sure how they got my "friends" address, home number, or anything...very creepy.  No credit connections to this person or anything.  Anyway, the message like everyone listed above was similar and said to call this number: 909-456-1879.   The number seems almost the same between these comments and a few other websites, the last 4 digits seem to change around.  I called and was transferred to a gentleman by the supposed name of "Steven Darwin".  Steven was nice at first.  He named some age old delinquency I had which is not on my credit and which I shared with someone else.  However he said it was only on my name (clue 1 that this is crap).  Two, says they mailed an "offer" letter in July and I never responded.  I asked him the address, he named an old address of mine.  I said I don't live there, can I get a new offer letter.  He said it was too late and they were on their way to serve me papers tomorrow.  I freaked out naturally.  He had my SSN, several addresses.  He continue to say this amount and that amount.  Wanting me to pay him over the phone about $2300  OR so.    I said I need a letter.  He got aggressive I hung up on him.  I got a fax number called him back, he Kept mumbling the company name everytime I asked so I couldn't quite get it down.  (I later found out that name on here from you guys).   I asked if he could fax me the document.  He REFUSED and said not till you give me a payment.  I said "so let me get this right, you won't let me have any papers saying who you are or what this about until I pay you?"  He said "absolutely 100% accurate".  I said I believe this is a scam.  He proceeded to insult me and belittle me.   He stated reasons why this isn't a scam.  (clue 2: anyone who is legit wouldn't' need to defend themselves this hardcore).  

I hung up on him saying I would have my attorney call him.  While I was on another phone conversation he called me (this time from the 909-456-1879 number.  (clue 3: why didn't they just call me from this number before instead of blocked?) .  I answered, he began fussing that I was rude so he said "I wont  be trying to help you any further so dont' bother having your attorney call."  I asked him if he SERIOUSLY called me just to tell me that.  He said yes, I informed him this is harassment and he is not to call my phone ever again.  Well he listened, BUT I got other phone calls....  I might also note* I never verified any information w/ these people...seems if they were legit they would have verified information from me first.

Approx an hour later or so, I got a call from a 949-468-1640 number.  I can't seem to find anything about them online but it was a lady saying something to the effect of, "we received a case on you and wanted to see how we should proceed forward".  I hung up immediately.

About 2 hours later, I received a call from a WEIRD 8 digit number 46156462.  I answered and this lady asked for me.  I said she had the wrong number.  She immediately said, well THAT IS NOT POSSIBLE.  This phone is LISTED through the phone company to 'my name'.  (clue 4:  no cell phone provider lists your name attached to your number PUBLICLY.)   I advised she had the wrong number and to please quit calling me.  I hung up.

2-3 minutes later she called back!!!!!   I couldn't believe it...from the same weird 8 digit number.  I said what do you want, I told you, you have the wrong number!  She said This is a "X" wireless number.  She got the carrier correct but you can look that up based off a number online.  I said I don't care, it isn't me.  She said, well that's fine, just have a valid ID ready when we come to your door tomorrow (she named my address) (clue 5: weird how they have my address but HAPPENED, to mail the offer letter to a previous address).

That is the last I heard, I guess if I don't go to jail i'm a free convict....  This is weird stuff...I'm not sure what to do.  Have any of you had any follow up regarding your situations?  How can we stop these people and how did I get picked!???

I kept getting calls from a blocked number, the one time i answered i pretended not to be me thinking they were a telemarketer. I wrote down the phone number which was 909-456-1890 and my "case number" a recent incident with my brother in law led me to believe these were the same scanners he had to deal with, so i ignored it and all the blocked calls that followed. This was last week or so well today i had two blocked numbers all and i ignored them both then like 10min later some guy walks up to my front porch and  I go to check it and its a hand written note, written in sharpie with my full name saying to please call bob Roberts at 909-456-1890! Didn't know the scanners would come to my house but im officially freaked out!

They claimed in the message that they had a court document to sent to my address. At first, I was worry that some of my relative who need serve for court and they put my number for referral.
When I found out this phone number was a scam by Google, they called me again.
All I answer was YOU NEED TO CALL  911 AND HAVE A GOOD DAY!!!
Hope they will not call me again unless they want to hear the same answer.

Please see the court documents/ injunction filed by the FTC on several companies from same area engaging in the same behavior as this one.

http://www.ftc.gov/os/caselist/1123142/111026rinconcmpt.pdf

My take is that they are all related. I don't think it'll be long before these guys are shut down. DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY MONEY, INFORMATION, ETC.. and do not take them or their threats seriously at all (they are not lawyers, process servers, paralegals, and i have yet to find any  licence info on their "collection business" They are just some ghetto ciminalls and they will all be prosecuted, including the employees bc they are engaging in fraud, extortion etc...   Check your credit and  document every contact they make with you and complain to the ftc and local gov agencies.
I highly suggest writing to their merchant accounts they use to process the creditcards, the UPS store po box that they claim as their physical address, their phone providers, and the credit agencies permitting them to use their credit report database. Bc they are supporting Edison Park and associates illegal activities and should  also be held accountable for damages.

This has been going on all around the country, look at the threads in Florida about another criminal outfit called Thurston and associates

I received several messages from these people, leaving a case number. I called back once and they were pretty confused themselves. One of the times they left me a wrong number. I'm in a debt consolidation program and they handle everything so I no longer get calls or mail, but I figured this might have something to do with one of those accounts. Within a few days, my neighbor came over to tell me that they had called HER looking for me. Not only had they called her, but they called her 80+ year old sickly mother AND my neighbors on the other side of me! The caller said a Marshall would be coming out to serve me and left a case number and contact info. Bob Roberts at Edison Park & Assoc. 909-456-1890. I called him the next day and he had a lot of my personal info, it sounded like a full credit report. I told him that it was illegal for them to harass my neighbors, especially my elderly one for my debt. He told me it was perfectly legal. Then he went on and made threats of what would happen if I didn't pay him and said that if they were unable to serve me, I would be sued without my knowledge. Then I would have a property lien and/or wage garnishment. I was scared thinking that something had gone wrong with my debt program, then discovered that wasn't one of my cards in it. I was still nervous thinking it might have been real and was worried I was going to get a wage garnishment. Then one of my clients mentioned scammers that had been harassing his mother and then him. He said there was a lot of it going on. That's when I Googled the number and found this site.... I am annoyed, but relieved.

I have received the same harassing phone call from a blocked phone number naming my sister as a defendant in a legal matter. They gave me a case number and said they would be at my door step in 30 minutes for me to sign for and receive the subpoena. I told them my sister did not live at this address and they said that it did not matter. They said that they would be at my address in 30 minutes. They never showed up. Within the next couple of days, my brother, other sister, other sister's husband, and his ex father in law were all contacted from a blocked phone number and given the same bullcrap line of a family member being issued a subpoena to appear in court. The SAME CASE NUMBER was given each time, except the last two letters would change according to which state they lived in.....WHAAAAAAT???  WATCH OUT PEOPLE!!!!!!! These scammers are coming in hot and heavy. They are giving a bogus story of a family member being issued a subpoena to appear in court, giving out their phone number 909-456-1872 where they answer "Corporate Office" Watch out!!! Do not call their number. It is possible for phone charges to be attached to each minute you stay in the line with them. Or, if not, then they might simply try and scare you out of important information and money. I will be setting up my phone service to not receive blocked calls. If they want to contact me then, they will have to reveal their phone number(s).

Some lady called my daughter's cell phone this afternoon and stated I was a defendant in a law suit. They gave her a (909)-456-1872 and a case number. I got the information and called the number and spoke with a guy. This entire charade is most disturbing. Hopefully, we can nail these folks sooner rather than later. Actually, the number that called my daughter's cell showed the caller ID as "blocked." the number I am using here is the number they gave her for me to call back with the case number.

Today just after I arrived at work there was a phone call from a "process server." The person didn't ask to speak to me at first. They just asked the person who answered the phone if I worked there and if I was there today because I was going to be served. At this point the person who answered the phone, a Customer Service Representative got a senior manager on the phone as I was with a customer (I work at Bed, Bath, & Beyond). The lady told my manager that I was going to be served and wanted to know if I wanted to be served at work or not. By this time I was available but rather than talk to me directly, the lady told my manager that I should call 855-339-4452 before 12pm or I would be served at work that afternoon. She also gave my manager a case # for me to refer to when I called back. I was really shaken up because I lead a relatively vanilla existence so I couldn't figure out why I would be being served court papers. When I called back, I too spoke with Mr. Roberts who was extremely condescending and rude to me. I gave him the case # and when he pulled up the information they were actually looking for my fiancee, but he had my ss# (he read it to me), he knew my father's name, and basically put the fear of God & going to jail in me telling me that if my fiancee didn't call him back by noon at (909) 456-1890, process servers would be showing up at my work to serve me. He also threatened to involve my father. However, he refused to tell me what my fiancee was being served for even though they were supposedly going to serve me in lieu of serving him. After hanging up with him, I immediately called my fiancee and told him the whole story every last detail. He asked me if my nerves were affecting my logical thought process? When I asked him why? He asked me when have I ever ever heard of someone being notified that they are going to be served before they are served?? Much less being asked whether or not they want to be served at work or not?? After a little further research, my fiancee came upon this site with all of these posts. While a felt a little bit of relief, what really bothers me is that they knew my social security #. I hope everyone who comes upon this site also takes the time to file a complaint with the appropriate agencies so actions can be taken to stop them from these illegal practices and harassing consumers and their friends, family, employers, etc.

I am so glad to have found that I am not the only one being harassed by this "company."  I started receiving phone calls from a private number with a case number and my address on my mobile phone's voicemail.  They have left two call back numbers, (909) 456-1872 and (855) 339-4452.  I've spoken with them and all they said was that they are going to serve me at my work and that they have verified my employment.  They have also claimed to work for the County Clerk's office as well as the Sheriff's office.  
I'm wondering, as are most of you, where to go from here and if I can stop the harassment.  I'm afraid they will start calling my work and/or family like how some of you are saying.
I've also checked my credit report and it shows Edison Park and Associates have made inquiries on my credit.

Anyone with experience know what to do next?
