Debt Collector
People, I'm not with this company and I guess 99% of you would call me a scumbag, but just throwing it out there, the do not call list is not for collections. It has nothing to do with that. Its for sales and telemarketers. I can't even count how many people said they're on the do not call list and will sue me. It has nothing to do with collections.

Some agencies are terrible and some are ok and some good. I don't know about this one, but judging by all the complaints, I'm guessing not good. Either way, 95% of all consumers I get on the phone deny, deny, deny until they have a reason to pay (ie, their credit, lawsuit, etc). Whatever happened to paying when you know you owe it. Everyone we speak to lies and when we catch them in their lie (like when they say they haven't worked in years and can't pay because they're on ssi - sometimes they're honest - and sometimes we find their place of work and know they're full of crap.

Some people are honest and that's great but there are far, far more lying, manipulative, and rude consumers out there than collectors. Of course, by law, we can't play you the recordings, but if you heard the way so many people talk to us when we start off the call politely (not all of us), you might blush.... then again probably not. And there are a lot more good collectors than bad. But no one writes about the lying consumers and no one writes about the honest debt collectors. Just the nature of the business...

Now everyone... send all your flames and disdain with my post....

they have been calling me for sometime and no suit yet. but they did report to my credit and now I can't get a car. i called them to settle and the a***oles asked me why i wanted to settle now after I hung up the phone on them multiple times. they had to rub it in of course. they told me now that they reported, they wouldn't settle and I had to pay the $600. I said fine and paid it. I didn't speak to Ken or Doug, the guy except for rubbing it in, was decent I guess. So idk about all their suit stuff, but I do know they report. Don't know if that helps? And in retrospect, I did run up the debt once I looked back at old banking statements. But they still could have been nicer about it.

Mr Marino-if this is the same person, was a lawyer, died 02/2009, they may have stolen his identity, he also has not worked in a law firm for quite sometime,

Integrity Management Group is a payment processing center used by the Famous Doug Mackinnon of Buffalo NY to filter all the money into his account from his various debt collection sweat shops.  Google his name and you can read all about his law violating empire....be very cautious when dealing with one of his many shops...too many to list here... and they change their names every time lawsuits get up there or the authorities shut one of them down..

Received an automated call at work from "Shapiro & Price" in regards to an uncollected debt. I believe this is either a junk debt collector or an outright scam. Any old debts I may have had were discharged in a bankrupcy several years ago and they apparently do not have my home number or address which leads me to believe they are not legitimate.

These scammers are calling my pager, claiming the same as they do for everyone else, yet I have a woman caller, Heather Sanchez.  They claim, however, that I am in a different county than I really am. Ergo, I ignore the calls.

You folks are being too kind.

People like these would not own a debt if there was valid proof of debt pursuant to the appropriate federal debt collection statutes.  They need you to admit it is legitimate.  It isn't because it is beyond the statute of limitations for debt collection or it never was.

Pursuant to Title 18 Chapter 96 of the U.S. Code, what is being described is called extortion.  Making threats to publish negative information for which they cannot prove the accuracy or threats to send people to jail is extortion.  Don't believe me.  Look it up for yourself using your favorite search engine.

Title 18 Chapter 96 is the RICO Act.  It is what the federal government uses to freeze the assets of criminal organizations - which includes the assets of the employees.

Call them back and record the call.  Pass it along to Federal prosecutors.

Always check out debt collection callers at http://consumerjustice.com/consumer/debtcollectors.aspx.  You might be surprised to find out how much trouble these clowns are in already.

Received a call from Mr. Marino of Shapiro and Price today saying he was investigating fraud in the matter of a payday loan taken out under my identification.  When I gave doubt, he recited my social security number to me.  After consulting with my bank and checking my accounts for unusual activity, and running a self credit report, I found no unusual activity.  Calls back to inquire for the location of Mr. Marino and Shapiro and Price was met by a receptionist very evasively, I was directed to a voice messaging for Mr. Marino.  I have reported this incident to my county sheriff's office with full details and am I bent on finding the location from which this scam is being perpetrated, to assist with the inquiry.  Glad I found this blog, thanks, it helps.

The same guy be calling my grandmas every morning threatening her, saying i owed money,he called my mom called and he said  I took out a loan and never paid it off if I didnt pay he would send somebody to arrest me. I finally called him my self and we had a very heated argument and he called me a criminal and told me i was a fraud he was very threatening and he said he was going to come over and have me arrested, I told him if he comes over he would get shot, he wasnt so threatening after i said that, He has my name but i dont understand why hes threatening my grandma who has a different last name. I talk with a family member who works for the police and police chief says they cant threaten to arrest you over a civil case, I asked for a address he gave me a po box in New York, I was hoping for a real address so I can go beat his a** with a 2 by 4 till it was worn down to the size of a toothpick,I really want to get my hands on this guy

These people are nothing but crooks! Fight back! Call their number non-stop. Harass the hell out of them!

Scum! Tell them they have no penises! (they don't!)

Give it back as well as you received!

Hey folks at Shapiro and Price----you are all turds of society. If you were a real organization, you'd have better contact information, phone numbers, addresses, and....oh, yeah, you wouldn't be a SCAM!

Kiss off!

Yes, I got a call from a David Logan from Shapiro & Price.  He said I owe a payday loan that was taking out in VA in 2006 or 2007.  It is now 2010, and I currently live in another state.  He said court papers were filed in my town, but was willing to accept a payment arrangement.  I asked him how could he do that if the papers were on their way.  He couldn't answer that question and he has been calling me every day.

I got a call from this number yesterday from a "Mr. Clifton".  He tried to sound professional and imply he was with an attorney's office.  He said he was calling from the "Firm of Shapiro and Price".  I researched the number and found this website.  I work for a financial office so I'm aware of the laws regarding debt collection.  I called the number back, asked to speak with "Mr. Clifton" who the man claimed was out of the office.  The man (who claimed to be a supervisor, but didn't even use correct grammar) asked for my name.  I gave it to him and he pulled my information.  Said they were calling on a payday loan, which is probably correct because of some past problems I had.  Even if it was legitimate, they have no right to imply that they're with an attorney's office and use a threatening manner in their messages.  I told the supervisor that I wasn't calling back about the debt issue, I was calling for information on that company.  He said that "Mr. Clifton" is new and that he will be reprimanded for the message.  I asked for an address for the company, he gave a PO Box.  I said no, I want a physical address.  He said he couldn't provide one as they have "too many offices".  I said ok, give me one office address.  He refused.  I told him he should be aware that he is violating the Fair Debt Collection Act and that he WILL be reported to the Attorney General.  I made sure to let him know that people are aware of his little scam.  He was stuttering on the phone and apologizing for the message left.  I don't suspect they'll be calling any longer.

I received a call from 716-986-9606 (sapiro and price) in reagards to a payday loan from 2007. Unfortunatly i didnt get any names, but i spoke to a female and a male. The advised me that i made a payment back in 07 and didnt make anymore....The last name, bank info, and employee info was incorrect, on top of the fact that i've never taken a pay day loan in my life. I tried to explain that to her, but she didnt wanna hear that she only wanted a payment and continued to threaten me with a lawsuit. She was very rude and aggressive to the point where i let her have it.....I cursed her out sooo bad....i used ever curse word, insult, and whatever else i could think of and told her not to call my house anymore. She said you're such a scum bag and hung up......She didnt know who she was messing with. I called back and a male answered "what". i asked to speak to the women who called me and explained what was going on.....he began to get aggressive and rude and said "i think u just used a fake name to do ur fraud business....i let him have it too. She got back on the phone i let her a$$ have it again...Me and this lady and this guy were going back and forth for about 30 mins with insults and curse words, at that point it wasnt even about the debt anymore.....At that point i realized (from working in collections) this was fraud and they were just trying to scam people out of money......she lucky she wasnt in my city or i would have found her and beat that a$$. Please dont make any payment arrangements with this company....its totally 100% fraud.......I dared her to call my house again, and i havent heard from them since

I receive my calls from 866-377-5362 that claim to be Sharpio & Price. They say they are collection for a payday loan which I did indeed pay off. The company I had the payday loan with was CashnetUSA and this Sharpio & Price claim that since I did not receive a Paid in Full note from them I am still liable for over $1,000. This place if not to be believed......
