I got a call from 864-990-5813.  The young lady on the phone indicated that she was from CRA Consumer Recovery Associates.  I asked if she was a debt collector.  She said no.  She just was given my number to call and her supervisor needed to talk to me.  So I let her transfer me.  Her supervisor answered by saying "how can i help you?"  I replied, "how can i help YOU?"  You called me.  She asked what number I was reached at.  I responded with what is the name of your company.  She hung up on me.

received call today 9/24/09. Came in as private number blocked on my cell. The message was a MS. Sawyer looking for my son. She said she had this number for a contact for him. (if they can find my number they have his). Said for him to call her at her direct line. 877-243-5126. So I blocked my ID and call the number back a man answered CRA. I hung up and called my son and told him to be careful.

A female with the name Ashley McCraw with office of CRA left a message, to me with my fullname saying that they need to speak with me or whoever currently represents me, said the number 877-243-5126,and that it is imperative that they get in contact with me immediatly, she said they have a serious matter to share with me about something I may not be aware of. And to call back immediately.
She had a sweet voice, slight southern accent, but the tone was sooo serious,and slow and deliberate, I guess to scare you into calling back. Like it was a matter of life and death.
I am very glad I looked up the number.
How can I protect my name and personal information?

9-23-09 Person named Talia left a msg on my cell phone saying i needed to get a hold of her by 6pm. She said it did not look good for me and it was important I call her and gave me a case number. When I called a guy answered and gave me a name of someone else and would not say what it was for he got very rude and hung up on me. I called back and a different guy answered would not clarify really what it was about and said they must have got the number mixed up. Thank goodnes I found these postings on line to help validate something was not right.

A Casey called looking for a "Colesta" or some one representing her.  Call back immediately,  it is very important.  Called back to inform them of wrong number and that there was no one here nor that we knew any one  by that name.  Received a rude comment implying that I was not cooperative and then the call was terminated.

Yes. I received a phone call from some guy- Austin Kitchen?!? Said that he was calling regarding some file that he received on his desk this morning and the it is really important for me or my reresentation to call him immediately. I recently took a credit freeze off of my account and now I am staring to get these types of calls regulary. I don't have the best of credit but my debt is also pretty old almost 5 years old. I have a problem dealing with debtors when they can't send me somehting in writing and this man did not even leave where he was calling from. I am tired of these people always calling and threatening people it's gets really annoying and some of them are so good that it's down right scary.

cross referenced the other number provided by "John Shelton" and found this information provided by "Help-n-out".
--------------------------------------------------------
Help-n-Out - 24 Jul 2009 Consumer Recovery Associates:

If you receive a call from this number, you have been called by junk debt / collection agency that buys debt from original creditors that has been written off or settled and is beyond the statute of limitations in most states. They are trying get the money for themselves, not the original creditor.

They are reportedly a serial violator of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). They may be illegally using credit information obtained from Experian or other credit reporting agencies.

This company has been known to contact and harass people they believe may know the person they are trying to reach including distant relatives, ex-spouses and possible former co-workers.

NEVER answer these calls if you see this as a caller ID. NEVER return these calls. NEVER give them ANY information about the person they are seeking or refer them to others.

Any "positive" comments you read in these notes about the company may have been written by employees of the company.

They used to be located in Virginia, I'm guesssing this is either a branch office in South Carolina or they had to permanently relocate because of complaints to the Virginia Attorney General:

I got a voicemail from "Alexis" at CRA.  The number for the incoming call was 702-966-2899.  She spoke REALLY fast with a bit of a hick accent and requested I call back at 877-243-5126.  I sensed something fishy and googled the numbers and company.  I recognized the 505 number someone else listed.  I got a voicemail from that number last week regarding my fiance.  We both have excellent credit so this company is obviously bogus.  Be careful folks, I had my identity stolen about a year and a half ago.  Bank of America was actually wonderful about everything.  It was a real pain but they discovered it and got to the bottom of it.  Turns out a former employee of an online company stole my information and used it.  Luckily the idiot used my debit card number to pay his cell phone bill.

received a very upsetting phone call from my mom today she is 78 saying she got a phone call from a Mr.Faircloth yea quite a name.  Any way all they did was upset my mother saying that I won't return their calls so my mom gave them my number then called me.  I call them up and they threaten me with a 1099 at tax time.  So I told her what I told the last bozo that I never had a loan with Beneficial and never would and this has been going on since 1988 yes 1988.  NOt to call me or my mother ever again.  The problem is they don't call me they just harrass my mom.  What can I do to stop them

No - but they are not much better - they are a bottomfeeder junk debt buyer.  They buy worthless legally uncollectable debt for pennies and then try to SCARE consumers to pay them dollars.  MONEY YOU DO NOT OWE!  

They use illegal collection tactics like threats of arrest and lawsuits if you do not send them money immediately.  

Deny your rights to dipute the debt and harrass family and friends as well.

YOU MUST REPORT THEM TO THE VIRGINIA ATTORNEY GENERAL - HELP THE AG CLOSE THEM DOWN.  RECORD CALLS GATHER EVIDENCE AGAINST THEM

Bud Says                         Consumer Comments Below

1-866-857-3916 is one of those irritating numbers that show up on your caller ID that can never seem to be identified.   When you return the call, you get the ominous "Can I help you?" or "Case number please."  They refuse to identify who they are when questioned, will not state they are debt collectors, and by tone imply you have committed some illegal act and are in great trouble or they would not have called you.  It is a violation of FDCPA.  It took quite a bit of research and cunning to discover whom the voices were behind the lawbreaking 866 number were...but it's coming together now and they are without excuse.

Give us your stories on CRA and let's put together some useful information to bring these folks down.  Record their calls where legal and save the tapes for future use.  We'll post 'em here if you have something of interest.

In the meantime, hold them to the law; make them put everything in writing, validate the debt.  Use the cease-communication letter.  Violations of the law should be pointed out to the Virginia Attorney General.

CAUTION: I recommend you NEVER disclose your bank account or credit card information to a debt collector, as you risk them emptying your account, or maxing out your credit card. If you feel they are reporting on your credit bureau files in error or need assistance in dealing with them, email  the details w/your location.  Assistance and referral to a consumer legal specialist may be available.

Returned a call at this number about them wanting to find a relative. When
I asked who they were they were extremely rude and wouldn't answer my
question. They were angry that I wouldn't just give them info on my relative. Well that just pissed me off and I hung up. Don't let them
intimidate you into giving out info. This must be an identity theft scam.

I received a call from "Natalie" today about the same things that you guys are saying, but when she called it went to voice mail and I didn't check it until after their offices were closed.  They message said the same thing that a suit was being filed and it was very important that I called back because it was serious and that my name was involved but she did not give details as to what it pertained to, so I got really scared and called back but when I called the office was closed.  So I left a message informing them to call me back.  After that I decided to type the number in online and it bought me to this website, and now I know that my suspesions were right.  Something is not right about them and I'm glad that I missed her call. I know that I didn't do anything wrong.
