I don't have any debt collectors trying to reach me but I get calls from this number regularly and I want them to leave me the hell alone! Comes up as 800 Service (along with a few other numbers) and I never answer but they never stop. What happened to the do not call list?!?!?
ask them for a credit card number with the three number code on the back with name and exp. date and tell them $25.00 will be charged to that account for each and every call that is made to your number . Also invest in a whistle or air horn because they will not give you a card number. If you have caller ID answer telephone with "Sheriffs Dept" or "City Morgue" or any other assanine thing you can think of. Have fun with it.
Everyday I receive calls from this number. Most times if I answer, no one is there.
No Msg. No nothing. "They" keep calling though, and I don't answer.
Even if you send them a cease & desist letter and they are not allowed to call you anymore for fear of prosecution....they can and will sell all of your personal information to someone outside of this country who can call and harrass you all they want. You cannot prosecute someone you cant track/find. I suggest you ignore, buy a whistle or play with them like I do. I am fluent in 4 languages, and when I see their number, I answer and go off on them in another language. They can't understand me and hang up.
this number 888 344 1268 is being reported to the attorney general of Mn and the FBI
Keep calling and asking person information about me.
Northland Group does not *have* to give a flying fornication about any no-call list. NGI is a debt collector and not a sales caller, and is therefore not covered. Yet again you pounce upon a thread without comprehending any part of it first.
Here are the DNC service terms everyone was supposed to review at registration time:
National Do Not Call Registry Q&A
Sue if you like, but prepare to pay damages to your defendants if you try your "racketeering" story. It's not illegal to place skip trace calls to you unless their content is abusive, their volume is excessive, or you have given notice to cease. Those claims would be civil and not criminal matters.
To halt the misfired skip trace calls, laying a paper trail is far more effective than verbal denials. My advice for "not me" cases is found here:
12/06/2013 12:50pm contacted northland group told them I would contact FTC if these Calls persist,
the person they are calling for DOES NOT AND NEVER LIVED AT THIS ADDRESS AND HAS NEVER HAD THIS PHONE NUMBER also I don't mind sueing Northland Group one bit under the RICO statutes to prove these tactics are the same used by organized crime.
What's the matter , you guys don't want to stick your neck out to contact his father who used
to work for the SECRET SERVICE (LOL).
I'm shure he knows where to find him.
Guess Im gonna have to contact the FBI on these guys also...Believe me it does work,it stopped the 4 to 5 calls a day
from Conn's and their 'ROBO system' HA HA HA !
This number calls at all hours of the day and never leaves a message.
Tell them you have all the contact info of the person they are trying to find, then ask how much the reward is.
These people don't give a flying f**k about the DNC-it's not going to stop them because they don't care they are breaking the law
I know reading is not a strong suit for you. I have previously asked for you to "point me in the direction of some substantive case law" to substantiate any of your claims that collectors can pursue any means to collect a debt and the court will side with them.
Several regulars have provide posts with citation to case law, why can't you? Is it because you aren't smart enough to read law, or because you are "knowingly making false statements" on behalf of the company?
Right now your arguments are not holding up, and it looks exceptionally embarrassing to such a learned man like yourself. Why don't you vindicate yourself and your employers by prove us wrong?
ADDENDUM: A month prior, Julea had posted as "Juletta", providing details omitted on this page. The alleged debtor was once briefly a household member and had repeatedly applied for credit while referencing the host family. So initally NGI and other collectors could in theory have a fair reason to contact her. This would not excuse weeks and months of subsequent skip traces, and the remainder of my proposed violation counts stand. Too bad now they are too old to pursue.
NGI is not a debt buyer itself, but does have a few debt buyer clients. It's once removed from a debt portfolio entry which indicates nothing in the way of proof of claim.
Your callers do not maintain this site or this web page. Your callers cannot magically determine which numbers should not be called based on anonymous comments. You cannot expect compliance with your orders until you deliver them *directly* to your caller.
} why not just change your number
- A determined skip tracer will find the replacement number soon enough.
- The "new" number will be recycled and carry with it the unwanted callers of its prior holders.
- Americans have a right to limit or ban all phone contact from debt collectors, to defend what we have rather than tuck tail every time a nuisance call arrives.
Hey Steve-o, knock it off or Wee Man will head butt you in the crotch.
Typical Teabagger logic, grab that money and soak the poor.
Why am I not surprised to see someone acting like a donkey's behind while using the name of a Jack*** cast member?
The will "ide" with the debtor? What, is that like the ides of March or something. Why don't you point me in the direction of some substantive case law so we can further embarrass you and expose the fraudulent operation you are shilling for.
You "now" (sic) the law. LOL! I think you just proved my point you illiterate bottom-feeding maggot shill
>>> Debt collectors have the legal right to use all avenues to contact those who owe them money. <<<
You misplaced the word "legal" in the sentence I quoted verbatim from your useless drivel. This error changes the meaning and truthfulness of the whole sentence. Why don't you try placing it where it belongs?
(Hint... try moving it to the right a few words.)
That the best you can come up with?
OMG you caught my typo. SNICKER
Let's walk through Julea's story, slowly, with my PDF copy of the FDCPA in hand.
NGI rep told Julea the alleged debtor "used our number for his "contact number"". This could easily have been a lie offered as an excuse to bother someone unrelated. Julea was later told she was "the only contact they had". Oh, yes, we are to believe that a man in his mid-twenties who was able to obtain credit had vanished and remained hidden for an entire year, yet the mother of his high school pal, having no contact in years, was promptly found?
If I'm right about either of the above, NGI was liable to Julea for violating 1692e(10), which prohibits "false representation or deceptive means ... to obtain information concerning a consumer."
Julea had "made it clear that we were not related" and could not assist the manhunt. NGI continued calling her anyway "for over a year". 1692b(3) says that NGI skip tracers had *one shot* and then they must move on, absent a belief that Julea gave "erroneous or incomplete" info "and that" Julea might be able to correct them. On its face, it was hardly likely that Julea was going to change her story to suit NGI's monthly earnings targets. But scofflaw collectors are allergic to facts and due diligence, using that "faulty informant" excuse to batter non-debtors senseless until someone, anyone "comes out of hiding" with an open checkbook. That is when the runaway skip trace calls rise to harassment and abuse, outlawed by 1692d.
After making a verbal lawsuit threat, indicating her draining patience with this behavior, Julea received yet more daily calls from "several different numbers", likely as punishment and to fool her into responding. The more she ignored them, the more the calls piled on. A comprehensive call log would surely reveal a 1692d(5) violation for "causing a telephone to ring or engaging any person in telephone conversation repeatedly or continuously with intent to annoy, abuse, or harass" her.
Julea also reported calls "as early as 6:45 AM". While she was not the "consumer", it is generally understood in case law that no American is to hear from a debt collector outside the default phone hours specified in 1692c(a)(1). It's a fair bet the near-dawn calls were part of the campaign of illegal harassment already described.
Julea was once told "they would continue to call until his debt was paid", meaning the young man she *could not contact* and who *did not live there*. The rep insinuated that Julea knew more and was lying, therefore the harassment would continue. Now they've hit 1692e(5) for a "threat to take any action that cannot legally be taken", mainly to keep pumping her for new information they would never get and to keep melting down the phone line until she gives up what they want.
Julea's great error was in repeatedly trying to argue with these script-reading slugs rather than flatly telling them to shut up, and then following with a cease-comm letter via USPS CMRR as long ago suggested. Even so, she might have gone to court with the above story, which I imagine is abridged here, and walked out with grocery money for a month plus her legal costs. It takes but one bulletproof violation count to succeed, and I see at least seven counts I'd put in my complaint.
Meantime, you can't even spell the "mony" you think jerky collectors deserve. You "now [sic] what the law is" according to how you were trained to ignore it. A "Mayberry judge" who has to be taught the law would possibly take your position. In big-boy Federal court NGI would get creamed. Knowing this, I would guess it pays out many quiet settlements for far less abuse. Consumer Rights: 1 / Steve: 0
} reluctant to write a letter demanding the calls stop, because I don't want my name or address in the file. .. I don't want to start anything
I would say it's NGI which started something, and it's up to you to finish. Connecting your phone number to other personal data is a trivial matter for debt collectors, who tap many databases for skip tracing campaigns. You won't get anywhere making verbal denials when the common industry response is to believe you're a liar and keep calling anyway.
A ''cease communication'' notice sent via USPS Certified with return card sends a clear signal that you cannot help the foxhunt and you're not to be bothered again. One more peep after your notice is received and you can think about warming a lawsuit.
Not when you break those laws and cross the lines, which shilling is also a crossing the line offense. You do realize that these can be subpoena'd and used against you do you not?
