there is a difference between eos cca and eocca...one phishes....spread the word
My father has been deceased for 5 months. His credit was perfect, all bills were paid. These jokers have been calling my family and have even asked us to send them a death certificate...NOT! Good luck on collecting from someone who is no longer here for a debt they never owed in the first place. SCAM!!!!
This message came for my son, James Barrilleaux. He is overseas in the military. I asked him about this and he said he had no idea what it was about. He has no debt and pays everything on time. The call was all automated.
They can call me til the cows come home thanks to caller ID. I love effing with debt collectors anyway. one of em caught up with me a few years back, so I sent em 50 bucks a month for 3 months, refusing to give them the personal info they requested. So they took me to court. At the time I had just initiated bankruptcy proceedings, so I went to court all humble and stupid like, and told the judge that I didn't dispute the debt, but that I had been making payments. He gave the debt collector's attorney holy hianus and told her that the finance charges they kept tacking on ever month, were punitive. She had no adequate response so the judge continued the case for 3 months - so that the collector and I could come to an agreement. LOL. I could have ended it all right then and there by telling the judge that I had begun bankruptcy proceedings, but I chose not to do that because I wanted the collector to pay more court fees. Three months later I was back in court - this time in an italian suit and a cocky attitude. The collector had this wet behind the ears lady lawyer in court, and when I smirked and told the judge that I had declared bankruptcy, she like to wet her panties. I stepped outside and fired up a Churchill and got into my Mercedes, feeling pret-ty darn good with myself. I have 7 grown kids, and some of them have debt collecters calling me, but, like I said, I laugh ever time I hear the phone ring.
I received a call today from EOSPCA 877-388-1407 and the auto system prompt me to call for a collections issue. I called and the very RUDE AGGRESSIVE collection's agent told that I have an outstanding balance with Qwest. Qwest has not been in business here in Arizona for over a year. I have been paying my bill every month on time. I tried to ask the agent why my payments have not been applied to my account and since she was unable to help I stated that I will need to contact Qwest for research., She started screaming at me and interruped me saying that I needed to pay her NOW since Qwest no longer had my account. I again tried to ask her where my payments went and what dates of service this was for and again she interruped me stating Listen Lady just pay me NOW!!! I hung up on her and called Qwest. I am current with my account with no record of collections and disregard the call. DON'T PAY THEM ANYTHING!!! THIS IS A SCAM!!!
What a knuckle head comment. You need to go back to school if you really believe what you attempted to put into writting.
XM can suck it
I canceled my xm radio when they charged my account about $100 so I called to ask why. They said it was for the radio I ordered. Not only did I not order a radio but they said I requested it to be sent on a certain date. I happened to be going out of town for 2 weeks and it was going to be delivered then!!! I am still fighting the charges!! Now I keep getting calls from this number!! I hate XM!!!
Yes! Call XM directly. The woman on phone makes it sound so serious, but my acct is paid. They call all the time # 877-683-1155. Do not give personal info!
Got a message from EOCCA same as above...
seems they are the debt collections agency for Sirius Xm radio
Claiming that i owed money resulting from a terminated contract that they auto renewed with out my knowledge. As soon as I got their bill I tried to cancel, AFTER SEVERAL PHONE CALLS ON HOLD FOR 15 TO 20 MINS I GAVE UP
their mode of operation is to put you on hold , or transfer you to a dead number. They do not allow you to cancel
AFTER A COUPLE OF MONTH I DID GET THROUGH to a person who allowed me to cancel and told me that my account balance was zeroed.
Then the calls start from the EOCCA
today i have contacted sirrius and the same pattern emerges person answers I ask to be transferred to a manager Im on Hold then transferred to nothing..
got a call saying they were a debt collection agency and that there was a problem with a certain account that they gave us a number for...the phone number they called in on is in a seasonal house and only on for 3 mo. of the year...interesting.
Answering machine left voice message. Account has been closed for 6 months guess I'll be getting harassed next.
We keep getting calls on this and told them each time we would not renew. We always paid 1 payment for the full amount of the contract at the starting date. THEN we received an bill in the mail from a collection agency saying we owe $65.00 + dollars. The girl would not answer any questions on the phone to me because it was in my husband's name. Told her she would not get another cent from me. If they put this on my credit report, I will sue them. Nice to have attorney in family.
I have absolutely immaculate credit. XM was cancelled over a year ago. It took numerous calls to people who did not seem to speak or understand english well. They finally agreed that I did not owe anything.
They called me and claimed I did not payt they cut off 1 radio but my other is still being paid on regularly. Makes no sense
I sent the bill back to XM Radio and said I did not want to renew this account and now I am getting collection calls from 877-683-1155 for XM Radio. I did not renew this subscription.
Same thing happened to me... I cancelled my service after my contract was up....and they tried to offer me half price and a free radio to stay and I said I just could not afford the service any longer - so they offered me an even lower price - at this point I figure if I wasn't a good enough customer before for you to offer me HALF PRICE????!!!!!! than I really don't need your service EVER again. About a week later I get a letter saying they tried to renew my service but my credit card had expired and could I kindly call them with the new credit card #????????????? REALLY????????????? I called them up and asked WHY on earth AFTER I said no thank you to everything you offered me did you go and try to bill my card anyway?????????? LUCKY for me they only had a credit card # that had recently expired --- had they had the new # they would have renewed me anyway after I said no thank yo to all their offers!!!!!????? Well here it is 2 YEARS later and they call and write and call and write that I owe them money????? They send different amounts each time too????!!!!! I have called NO JOKE 7 TIMES!!!!! since and spoke to their customer "dis"service department and each time they SWEAR to me that they have fixed the problem and I will not hear from them anymore????? Guess who just called again?????
Same thing happened to me, I called xm radio today and asked for any specials, they did not have any so I told the guy I'll call back later, he did not like that so tonite I got that call ...don't ever give them your credit card for automatic payment because they triple charged me they suck .....
I do not think they can legally charge you for service past your contract expiration date. The contract ends and so does our agreement to pay for the service. It is their responsibility to end the service because we can disconnect from it other than not renew.
Maybe we can file a class action law suite against them if they ruin our credit score and continue to harrass people.
D IN SLC
PROBLEM SOLVED call them 877 683 1155 back and by robot you are prompted to add your # to their do not call list
877 683 1155 stupid telemarketers
I got the letters too very irritating
Ditto. Ditto. Ditto. I received 2 phone calls today (one automated, one from David White) at the EOSCCA collection agency regarding my XM service that I never renewed. I initially got a free 3 month trial when I purchased my new Toyota in 2010. Then, they kept calling me to renew, which I finally did over the phone in October of 2010. A one year subscription paid in advance and I specifically told them to not keep my credit card info as I did NOT want to sign up for the auto-renew.
Fast forward to October 2011 when my service was supposed to be up. I get several notices in the mail saying that my account service would be cut off if I didn't renew. I was perfectly fine with this as they had DOUBLED the subscription price for the year. I neglected to read the fine print regarding the automatic renewal terms on the back. I was a little busy at the time with our new baby.
Now, I'm getting notices and calls from a debt collector. HOW IS THIS LEGAL TO HAVE AUTOMATIC RENEWAL WITHOUT ME SIGNING ANYTHING OR IT BEING SPELLED OUT WHEN I RENEWED OVER THE PHONE?? IT probably isn't legal, and it sure as heck isn't good business practice by XM. I'm guessing they won't be in business too much longer if they keep it up.
Same s**t happened to us today (3-13-12) also... I too have an excellent credit rating / score and No Outstanding Debt or Subscriptions Due to XM!!!! I'm tired of XM's intimidation tactics trying to make us re-subscribe to their non-service company and product, so I've filed a complaint with my state's atty. general; the u.s.p.s. postal general (because of the bs, letters xm has sent us); and the FCC.
Last detail here, I paid for the two years I had XM with a personal check, and did not opt for their Auto-Renewal Service (credit card only option)... they are owed nothing by me or my family.

I would strongly suggest that anyone with XM Radio drop it. They are scammers. By the way, they did not deny that they are doing this. The guy at XM verified it. I originally canceled because of all the commercials. I can get those for free from my car radio.
S in Florida
In the past 2 hours, I've received 6 calls from this number. I have only answered it twice (first call and last call), and on both occasions, it was a robot, asking me to hold for the next available representative. (Don't call me and then ask me to hold on... that's stupid)... I hung up.
On the last call, about 10 minutes ago, I answered and was willing to wait through the robot to tell a human to stop calling my phone, after about 2 minutes with the robot saying, "Please hold, this call is important... blah blah blah" the call just ended.
Thats when I googled the number and saw this thread. I've NEVER subscribed to XM, so I don't think that's what this call was about. I do use ATT, but I'm current on my bill, so I have NO IDEA what this call was about. If I get someone on the phone, I will chew them up!
877-683-1155 - XM Radio. had them in two new autos..so free for several months. Renewed their service for two years..cancelled both when we could not afford anymore. On one auto they offered 3 months for $25. and 3 for free, so I paid with debit card. BIG MISTAKE!! when the six months was up, they auto drafted $383.00 from my checking account. Called and bitched that I never authorized this charge. They said it would take 3 to 5 days to return my money to my checking. After day six I called and was told they could not return my money because last time we talked they deleted my credit card info from their system. They finally sent me a check for $378.00 three weeks later. On the second auto I told them I would just let the subscription run out was not going to renew. I now get bills for $30.00 and collection calls. Will not pay!!! We can once again afford this, really like it when we had it, but will live without until I see a public announcement that they are ending their "just bill 'em and see if they pay" policy.
Wanted to know if I was so and so. When I said no, they wanted to know if I knew so and so. I said no and asked them who they were. They said the EOCC. I then asked what that was and they said that was confidential. At that point I told them not to call my number ever again. They got real snooty and said "have a nice day."
unwaned call from this number, I donot want to subscribe to xm radio, my subscription exptired few mo ago, they shoud be persecuted for doing it.
I for one refuse to participate in this class action. I've had the exact same issue everyone one else has had on these 8 pages of posts, in that they "automatically renewed" my subscription without my permission. The worst part about it is I owed over $90 because they're claiming some $75 "early termination fee," which was never described to me when I subscribed over the phone. I will never ever purchase anything from sirius xm again, and will not be part of this class action because it involves signing up again. Don't do it unless you want to owe $90. We need a REAL class action with a REAL settlement.
