I received the same post card. I didn't think it was from the USPS because theat card looks totally different. Something in me knew this was some kind of scam and I'm glad I googled so I know NOT to call the number.
Got one in the mail. I'm not the person at the address, but called it maybe to see if it was something generic or to tell them she didn't live here. The number was 1-800-783-6352 and the prompted key was 2001001
The first call it said "this matter has been taken care of" and they hung up. I tried to call again to see wtf was going on and it hung up on me. The next day it reset and I could enter a different number and got the same message then i called again and it hung up.
So they reset themselves every day.
Since it is a toll free number, perhaps we should all start calling from pay phones and entering the numbers just to get them to stop doing this. Obviously these jerks stop at nothing to try and get whatever they want.
I really don't trust anything from GV now that the government is in bed with google and all the other places (you heard of prism, right?)
Got a postcard asking me to call 1-800-89-3329 regarding attempted delivery service. I called it, it asked me for my re# which was on the postcard, then said the issue has been resolved. I called back and pressed -0- to speak with an agent and it hangs up on me. I am going to see what measures I may take for mail fraud, wire fraud.
I got the same card with a reference number. After reading all of the reports below, I looked NCO up and found this:
In 2003 alone, NCO was sued over 40 times for violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). These suits were usually filed when consumers are abused in violation of state and federal debt collection laws.
NCO Group to Pay Largest FCRA Civil Penalty to Date.
May 13, 2004: One of the nation?s largest debt-collection firms will pay $1.5 million to settle Federal Trade Commission charges that it violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) by reporting inaccurate information about consumer accounts to credit bureaus. The civil penalty against Pennsylvania-based NCO Group, Inc. is the largest civil penalty ever obtained in a FCRA case. (FTC NCO Case File 992-3012). (Posted by the Consumer Equalizer)
In 2006, NCO paid $300,000 in a settlement with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
HARRISBURG - Attorney General Tom Corbett today announced that a settlement has been reached with Pennsylvania-based NCO Financial Systems Inc., a national debt collection agency, following an investigation into in excess of 800 consumer complaints lodged with the Attorney General's Bureau of Consumer Protection against NCO Financial since November 2003. (PA Attorney General Press Release)
In 2007 alone, NCO Financial was sued in Federal Court over 100 times, mostly for FDCPA and FCRA violations.

I am not with this company, I am being harassed as well. I am posting this information for anyone that wants to follow through on possible suing these a***oles. I'd love to see them overwhelmed and taking a great loss for doing what they do.
Got a yellow card today in the mail with a reference # on it and phone # 1-800-859-3329. I had to go to the post office to drop offf a box so I took the card with me. The post office says it is NOT from them and it seems like someone or a company is trying to contact you to get more personal information from you. Do not call nor give any personal information away. There are a lot of identity hackers out there and everyone must be careful in today's world.
Received yellow Delivery Services postcard with 800-204-3572 as the number listed.
Same deal, yellow post card, DELIVERY SERVICES 1-800-859-3329 ref# 6007833 But with a hawaiian post stamp. I wonder if they can get a DNA sample from the stamp anyway its going to be sent to the feds (at least they are good for something)
Got a fluorescent yellow card that says Delivery Services. Doesn't say who the company is, or who the package is from. Came in mail and wasn't taped to door, as it would in a actual failed delivery attempt. We are not expecting a package from Colorado at the moment, and that was what the postmark said.
The # they told me to call was 1-800-859-3329, and to key in ref. # 5016827, which, of course, ain't happenin'!
One PO'd Guy
Glad I found this site first.
Just received this postcard today, as many others described. Decided after looking it up (and seeing these posts) to call from one of my Google Voice numbers (lol, gotta love throwaway numbers).
Called, and got asked for my 7 digit reference code, so I entered it, only to be told that the issue had been resolved already. A few seconds later, I got a prompt saying to press "0" to speak with a representative, so I did so. After spending a few minutes, a lady answers (had a really bad accent and spoke very poor English) asking me what seems to be the issue. I explain to her that I had just gotten off work, right as my mailman delivered this (he handed me the mail personally, had the same carrier for over 10 years), and would like to schedule another delivery attempt. She asked me for the reference number again, and then read my address back to me. After telling her that this was the correct information, she informed me that the package shows as being delivered to my address already. I told her that there was nothing but this card in my mailbox, no package, and that i've known my mail carrier for 10+ years, she immediatly hung up on me.
Number was 1-800-859-3329
I'm going to be keeping track of my google voice number that was used, just to see what the number that calls back is.
If anyone knows the company or anything more about this, please post.
Recieved the same card. I'm glad I always check this site first! Can this be used against them? Any lawyers on here that would know?
I received a green one today and I'm not even going to chance it. From reading the posts, I've made my decision not to call. I told my husband I would google the number first. They're just getting slicker and slicker aren't they. I knew it didn't look right, I said "That is not what a deliv. notification looks like from the Post Office". Thanks everybody for all your info.
I got the same thing today. I have a attorney who will contact them and get to the bottom of this.
It is National Credit Ajustors. someon name Sandy Miller called me and was very rude. I asked for
their fax number but never got it.
Received that Orange Card yesterday that was STAMPED and post marked from Denver, CO. OK, what delivery company MAILS you a notice that they were trying to deliver a package to you? PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT CALL THIS NUMBER!!! I truly hope that something really severe happens to these kinds of companies that use these types of underhanded tactics to harrass you! Thanks to resources like this to make us aware of what's happening and to help protect folks from stuff like this! Do call the: Stop the Collection Calls From NCO Group - Call Today 866-789-8808. They need to be STOPPED!!!!
got a orange card said to call and then they said it was taking care now they have my phone no what is this
Here's my experience: today I received an orange card with the same information as listed above ("Delivery Services" etc). I called the number, punched in the code and then an automated voice said "this issue has been resolved." If the number does belong to NCA (Natioanal Credit Adjusters) then I believe this card and verification code is simply designed to get you to confirm your address so they can serve you court papers.
If they send the card to your address and you dial the number and put the in the code unique to your address, it's confirming in their system that they have the right address for whomever they are trying to get to.
That's my take on it at least. I could be wrong. I hope I'm wrong.
I received the same postcard with the same number to call. I thought my number was blocked so I called them. They never leave messages though. I put them on my reject list on my cell so they can call all they want it will be rejected. I looked up every number they have called people from and added those. I think it's against the law to not advise who you are when contacting people (well businesses anyway) Some jerk called my job stating he's looking for an employee by the name of (me) and he gave the last 4 of my social security number on the voice mail. I still have the recording and will keep it just in case they try to take me to court.
I didn't receive a phone call because I recently changed phone numbers and they wouldn't have my new phone number. I did, however, get one of their bright orange cards with the digit code. After checking here first, I went online to check out the business listed above, National Credit Adjusters. On their website, I found this link to the FBI website regarding a payday loan scam that they're working with various payday loan businesses. It would be worth it to check it out - http://www.fbi.gov/news/pressrel/press-releases/paydayloanscam_120710
Dude, f*** that. I got one knowing I hadn't ordered anything. I called and got the recording so I ignored it. But im sure that illegal.
I received the same postcard today that says delivery services, trying to contact you. Please call ASAP to schedule or to advice number 1-800-831-8706 and then gives a reference number. I just threw it away and appreciate the posts warning about this.
My comments are the same as the above comments. I havent order anything. Out of work nobody has every tried to deliver anything at my home
... I called same thing enter a code. I did.then it simply says problem has been resolved
what a joke. Never does it say the problem or who it is.,,,
I did not receive a call. A Post Card instead with this number on it stating that they had a delivery but were unable to deliver it and i must call them asap with the 7 digit code on the card. Once the code was entered the automated message said thank you but hte matter had already been resolved and hung up the call. This is rediculous and I hope something gets done about it.
Also may take this up with the local Post Master to inform him that the USPS is allowing a scam through the mail and see where it goes.
Got one of these stupid orange cards. Used a friends cell to contact them. This should prove interesting. Gonna let him tell them (If they call) that they have the wrong number, that was in his post office box, and that he is going to press charges for phone phishing to the FBI. (He happens to be an FBI Agent). I look forward to this.
Just got this orange post card says delivery services. Called the number and entered the reference number said the issue had been resolved. Think this is a collection agency. They sent a FAX to my job wanting me and my human resource manager to sign for employment verification. Guess what not gonna happen.
I rec'd a postcard too...
On one side -- "DELIVERY SERVICES" "We are trying to contact you byt are unable for one of the following reasons: -restricted or insured requires a signature -unable to use po box -no one available --call to authorize alternate contact 1-800-831-8706 please call asap to schedule or to advise key in your reference number found above your address"
On the opposite side -- "DELIVERY SERVICES we are trying to reach you. please call us to reschedule"
Googled the phone number and found many listings for creditors... and of course this website
Not only are these f****rs trying to get your phone, or if they already have it they're trying to verify it AND they're also trying to verfy where you live!
I recieved ORANGE postcard today. From "DELIVERY SERVICES" no companyu name just a phone number asking to call ASAP. I called(mistake) Entered reference number...then got the following recording. " thankyou for calling however this matter has already been resolved.
IF it is a collection agency they have just violated the FDCPA. So If you get a phone call later from a number which identifys itself as a collection agency, ask them if they are the one who sent out the orange cards, and once you have them saying yes (if they admit to it) tell them thankyou because now you are calling attorney and taking them to court. If you have a tape recorder TAPE IT. Remember they HAVE to identify WHO THEY ARE AND WHERE THEY ARE CALLING FROM BEFORE YOU GIVE THEM ANY INFORMATION OR VERIFY YOU ARE WHO YOU ARE!!!!
I recieved a orange card in my mail saying they had something that could not be delivered. I called the number and got no response. I feel this could be a scam. This could be the same company that has called my workplace asking for payday and account numbers after being informed not to call my place of work.
orange card with codes. I called using GoogleTalk and it claims once you enter number "Thank you for calling, however this matter has already been resolved. Goodbye." Now lets see who calls me on the GoogleTalk number on their caller id. Ohhh so anxious to hear from our mystery guest....
