Just got a call from this number a little while ago, but no message was left. Came up on Caller ID as follows:
Toll Free Call
There is no Mike Fleck here. W bothering me?
The are rude!! The guy kept calling me a liar and said I had no inttent on giving any maoney. I am 2 months late due to hardship and always paid on time. The creditor knew this and even stopped sending me bills, which I sent anyway.
The guy was Arthur and I intend to report him. He wanted all or nothing and would not let me pay it off.
Why did you report it? Federally mandated hours for calling is 8am-9pm. Google it or go to FTC site and check it out.
KD, the Do Not Call registry is for Telemarketers (Telephone sales of goods or services) only. It does not apply to debt collectors or any other unwanted caller that is not calling to sell or solicite funds.
Funny story d***hit, one or your reputable agencies contacted an ex sister in law.....she wasn family any longer and now its harassment.....leave your arrogant idealogoy outts this post a***ole, you have no idea why some of these people cant pay. Go take your six figure j*** off lower than a botom feeder job n go brag to all your welfare scamming buddies about how you get paid to be a dick, I'm sure your parents are sooooo proud that was all you could do for a living is harass those with personal troubles........Douche canoe!!!!
Getting calls from them now before 9 a.m. Reprted.
they all the time and say not one word i wish they i call them @8:00 am butt holes
Things aint getting better.Just go shoot em.
Pretend you're not yourself. Call the collector back tell them you just received a call from this number. They ask for the number and then ask for whoever it's attached to in their system. Tell them you don't know said person even (if its you), proceed to tell them you just got a new cell phone number and have been receiving collection calls nonstop for the deadbeat they are looking for. They'll then take your number out of their system.
Recent Chapter 13th HAPPY DUDE
Getting more of these calls everyday...all on my cell.
Don't owe any money so they are not calling for that reason.
Thank you for doing that. these idiots are harassing me too from a dentist that was shut down for fraud charging patients for service not given in fall river ma. Still trying to get me to pay for a partial and a whiting I never got. :/
Let's just harass them back!!!
Busy person with no time for pranks
same deal, scum bag outfit ran by a scumbag breaking the law by pretending .. How the heck do they get a phone company to allow them to register as a law office to show law office on caller id is beyond me..
such positions should be proved ,documented by the companies who provide them with these tall free #'s that say they are a law-office .. whats next- fake police dressed a cops knocking on your door ? how far will this go?
if tomorrow every jack and joe starts calling themselves a law office they can do some horrible damage to unsuspecting people who have done nothing wrong..
Here is the flip side of the coin..
maybe some of the people they call have dept but that don't make them criminals and from what i read here, these collectors speak, intimidate and act as if your a criminal they are about to put in jail ....
I mean take an example like this:
If they call a mother of a Yong person who may have dept and lives with the parents to get back on their feet and scare this kids mother, she will pay off whatever dept she must to keep her child safe even if she has to go borrow money....
Why ? because it says LAW OFFICE ON CALLER ID !
WE ARE A MODERN SOCIETY THAT TRUSTS AND ARE NO LONGER USED TO SUCH BARBARIC WAYS ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO LAW RELATED SITUATIONS IN USA...
WE LOVE THIS COUNTRY FOR SUCH REASONS AND HAVE BEEN BRAINWASHED TO FEEL WE CAN TRUST AUTHORITY OR IN THIS CASE PEOPLE PRETENDING TO BE AUTHORITATIVE UNDER COVER SCUM BAGS ...
i don't believe they are allowed to speak about anyone to anyone until they can confirm that they are speaking to the very person they are trying to reach..
a mother, father looks at caller ID, it says law office, they intimidate her/him and she/he now wants to know whats going on so she/he says she/he is the person they are looking for which believe me is not so uncommon for a caring parent...
how do they confirm thats its the correct person on the phone? probably by asking your name and thats no way to confirm anything these days...
just the fact that someone has to pretend to be a law-office in order to make money makes them more guilty then people who owe because in all reality why must they do that? its criminal ...
Is the economy to low where they cant get a normal non scum bag operation going?
Are they in dept themselves to take such a low life road to making money ?
maybe others should be calling them acting like they are doctors and telling them that their kids are harmed playing pranks because all that junk is nothing but a prank
(a registered " white color " prank taking advantage of blue color workers who may have been laid off or whatever 100 other reasons it takes to have financial trouble in 2012 )
He without sin may cast the first stone !
From all of the complaints, this is only one of many calls generated from this #. The only message left was a most ominous sounding "G-- d---".
I did not waste my time calling them as it is clearly not anyone I would want to speak with.
It does make me feel a little better knowing I can blemish their name on this forum.
They are, no doubt, a fly-by-night collection outfit disguised as a law firm in Salem, NH, Richard J. Boudreau, to be exact. (I suspect the "J" stands for jack***!)
I think I will answer the next time they call and see just how much of their time I can waste before they realize I'm putting them on. Heck, I'm retired. I've got to find some way to spend my time.
Received a call from ...........877-404-4490
Caller ID shows.......... " Toll Free Call "
Very mysterious woman....I had to ask her five (5) times who she was, being vague each answer.
She then stated, she was the law firm ... "Boudrow" (?) ( not sure on spelling )
I informed them they had the wrong number, and informed further to remove my number from the file.
I called the number back..... it was a "Collections Agency" ..... they are attempting to scare the public
stating they are a law firm !!!!!!!! Slick Operators........
I am registered on the ......."DO NOT CALL LIST"
I went further, I just blocked their number with usage controls.
yep collection agency called it back Law office of richard something says they also are a debt collector
if you have optimum as I have for my phone block the number is for free. check your phone company, sometimes with your 12 or more calling options they include it
got this call too, don't know who it is and want it to go away
This isn't a discussion as to whether or not we should "pay our bills".
This is about our rights concerning the collection of debts.
They owe a bill that they didnt pay and it was prob transfered to them because they bought the debt out from another company...... You people wig out over the simpilest thing... LoL PAY UR BILLS
I desperately need help from you guys! I had a credit card with a major company for many years. Up until a year ago, I had been making minimum payments for close to 10 years while my balance kept increasing. A couple of years ago we were facing foreclosure and stopped paying the monthly payments. I was able to get on a payment plan with the credit card company where they debited the amount each month from my checking account. After 12 months, they stopped deducting payments but I didn't realize it until they started calling me that I wasn't making payments. They then told me I had to pay a large chunk of my balance before they would allow me to begin another payment plan. I told them I wasn't able to pay the large chunk but wanted to continue a payment plan. After a lengthy one hour phone call, they wouldn't work with me and said they would be sending me to a collections agency. That agency is Richard J. Boudreau. I have never answered their calls or spoken to them out of fear because of what I have read on the internet about them.
A few days ago I found an envelope in the door of my home with my name hand written on it and nothing else. Inside is what appears to be a copy of a court summons. Is this legal? Am I being served? Should I respond to this? I'm so afraid they are going to garnish my wages or my bank account. Help and advice is greatly appreciated.
Called me at 5:29 in the MORNING!!! Isn't that ILLEGAL???
a responsible person
just another strong arm debt collector who has repurchased an old debt and doesnt even know if the debt is current untill they call and try to intimidate you. In this case they are trying to collect old debt from before I filed for bankruptcy.
-So is it ethical to purchase debt for pennies on the dollar and expect repayment in full with interest? They were not the original debtors, their investment is minimal.
-Is it ethical to attempt to collect on debts that you dont know the actual original amount, or validity of?
-Is it ethical to attempt to collect on debts that are dismissed through bankruptcy court (all the while assuming the individual doesnt know what his legal rights are? And all the while pretending to be the collections arm of a firm with a legal backing?)
-Is it ethical to try to collect on debt that you know has expired beyond the statute of limitations to collect?
No there is nothing shameful about putting these collections people in their rightful debased position in life. If you know anyone personally who works in this position, gently suggest there are better ways to make an honest livelihood.
I received 2 calls from these people and the caller ID showed Law Office and the number. I blocked the call but they still keep trying to call. They never leave a message and if I don't recognize the number, I don't answer the phone.
you are exactly right. Banks and Credit Card Companies lobby congress with millions to make laws that favor them and then accuse us of being in violation of what are, in fact, unethical laws in the first place. It is sheer greed on their part. There is nothing fair or just in how they manipulate your interest rate, credit score or any number of other factors that then come back to hurt you. Almost the same scenario happened to me, they reduced limits, upped rates and as a seasonal self employed farmer, instead of barely making it through each winter, I ended up being unable to pay my mortgage and was foreclosed on.
A word of advice to everyone. Google 'your state name + statute of limitation on debt' to find out what your state considers a debt too old to sue for. This means that if the debt is too old (In MAss for instance the limit is seven years) you cannot be taken to court for a judgement. If they should summons you, you merely show up at court (DO NOT AVOID GOING - ITS FUN AND YOUR TAXES PAY FOR IT) announce the debt to be outside of the State's Statute of Limitations for Debt Collection. The judge will dismiss it. They have every right to call, but they cannot get a judgement and so cannot collect when you say NOOOOOO. And do not pay any partial payment, that merely reinstates the starting period from which the debt statute begins to be counted. God Bless All True Americans Who Fight Against Corporate Greed!
