Received a phone call at 5:15am this morning for a Stephen G***z. I have no idea who this person is, and has never been associated with my home number in the last 30 years.
They said they'd remove my number, and when I told them they were violating a federal law by calling at 5:14am, the guy cussed me out, and told me the call wasn't for me anyway and I should just butt out of their business!!!
got a letter in the mail today for a collection in an apartment ive never been to seen or even been to the state its located in im guessing a scam
We got a call from them. They didn't leave a message.
left half a voicemail message - something about they needed information and it was affecting my credit rating. I think it's a scam.
I got the same as Mary above. Sounds like a phishing scheme to me.
Debt collector. MIne was for an apartment I lived in where they are trying to have me pay an extra month's rent after I moved out.
They call every other day and leave an automated message on my answering machine. Of course, it cuts off before anything of importance is said. Today, I was home when the number came up and I listened to the entire message. It is for a friend and it is a credit collector stating their name is "Fair Collections Agency" and to call them back with a reference number. I notice that another caller stated it was for an apartment collection, and this is possible as my friend abandoned his lease due to excessive crime and murders in the complex. It is on his credit and he is suffering from it, but since he has no intention of paying, there is no point in calling back.
My number keeps getting calls from 877-775-9364 for a person with last name (I think, can't totally understand) named Flowers.
I have been here 13 years no one with that name lives here. Please stop calling, I am also on a do not call list, if you reference the number you're calling 585-720-0473 it's not connected to anyone named Flowers and to my knowledge never has.
This company calls using a recording, saying that I owe money, that is not true and also this has to be a violation of my privacy.
I got a call from them the past two days. I have no credit. I've never had a credit card. I can't imagine what they'd be collecting for. I'm not calling them back. think it's a scam....
I will be sure to add this number to prank call forums all over the web, good luck with their "business" hahaha
called on October 6, 2009. i have no debts that i am aware of and all of a sudden a collection agency call? i dont think so
From experience, I would recommend that you always ask for a statement, letter in writing to address the debt. If the caller cannot provide that, I wouldn't talk to them any further.
I'm getting calls on my number for a person who used to live in my apartment building ... the ignorant people gave out my number!! I tried to call them back to get off the call list but I get a message that it's out of service ... how very annoying!
hate annoying calls
I've been receiving calls from these d***hits for over a year. I keep calling the morons back and telling them that the person they are looking for is not at my number. They tell me they will remove my number from their f@3@1&*7 data base. LIARS!!! They call me again within weeks. I told these a***oles three times this year, I am not the person they want. I called the FTC today and reported their skanky a***s.
receiving many calls from 877-775-9364. Called to remove number today, 08/04/09. Hopefully will receive no more calls.
This isnt a scam. It is a Debt collector but it is for valid debts. I had recieved calls from them everyday for a week and finally called it back, and talked to the lady. I had a debt of 100 from an old credit card i had forgot about and never changed my address on. I was able to track the original debt and pay it off, but it is a legit number so u might want to find out why they keep calling. Its your credit that is being messed up by avoiding their calls
Got a message on my answering machine from 877-775-9364..it was for my son's father...but he passed away in June 2006....I never had the same last name as him, our son has last name, but I just got this home phone number 2 months ago and its in a different part of the state where we lived....
I know I personally don't owe anyone anything...just bought a house....
This is rather insulting and quite hurtful. Going to call tommorow and demand some answers as it isn't normal business hours now.
I also had numerous calls from this number (877) 775-9364. The last three have been for different first names, but has my same last name...weird..but, as mentioned in this string of messages multiple times, I do not have any outstanding debt's, especially any that have gone into collections...nor is my credit report indicating anything...this has to be a SCAM!!
They call and leave a message for a female that isn't me. I've been getting call from them for almost a year. The last message said "If you are not _________. Please call 877-775-9364 to get your number removed. I didn't call.
Leaves a message to call back, account number to reference. I do not have any owing debts as I just filed for bankruptcy.
I keep receiving phone calls from 877-775-9364, I don't answer any 800 numbers as I think they are people finders for debt collectors. I kept receiving calls so I had my number changed, and I still received calls from this number. So, it is obvious to me that this company is using some sort of random number system.
Fed Up with Remote Anonymous Thieves!
I definitely think this is a complete scam. Someone told me it's connected with ACORN. They are either trying to get private information on people or trying to rip people off. Probably best to inform your state government Attorneys' General in any state if the calls keep coming in. They've been leaving a seemingly infinite number of messages on my phone over the months, and I suspect they are the ones who are calling and hanging up too, because both activities started at the same time. I'm sick and tired of it, and I've heard them use similar names like "Fair Collections", "Sarah Collections" and "Ferris Collections". I have no debts or collection-related history of any kind. This stuff HAS to stop!
They always want to ask you to pay the bill statement, even it is not correct and is not clarified.
this number called me today and left a voicemail. the message said to call back about an account number i have never seen before. needless to say, i shan't be calling back.
I THINK THIS IS A HUGE SCAMMER TRYING TO GET PERSONAL INFORMATION!! READ ON! First of all, I owe no debts so I am suspicious about this call for that reason as well as the fact that they say if you continue to listen to the recorded message you are assumed to be the person they want. (How would they know if I continued to listen if they left a vm???) Called my cellphone and left this message: (male voice) "This call is for(a female voice says name) (man's name given). There will be a 3 second pause. If you continue to listen to this message, you will be assumed to be (female voice again) (man's name given again). This is regarding acct. number (gave acct. number). This call is to collect a debt. Please call 877-775-9364. Any information obtained from you will be used in that regard."
Fair Collections Outsourcing...
Yes, agree with the above. The left a message with the same 877 number and an account number to call back with. They of course do not identify themselves in the message as a collection agency.
You call them and provide them either the account number or the phone number they called, and they tell you what they are trying to collect against.
They called me repeatedly at work and left vm for someone else. Any idea who these people are?
