Toledo Ohio?? Jurist Review these complaints please.
This phone number belongs to a company called United Collection Bureau, Inc.
Their address is 5620 Southwyck Blvd. suite 206
Toledo, Ohio 43614
They have no fax number, nor do they have a number with their Toledo, Ohio area code on it.
They are scam artists? thinking people will send them money. It's called extortion folks.
My bills were paid off in another state, and with the bill. and this person from Ohio is on the run. trying to collect on your Banks credit cards. Little does he/she know? the end of the line is the a Cease and Desist letter, an attorney, a court, and proof without bogus debt collection notices.
The address on their return invoice is different.
It appears to be
United Collection Bureau, Inc.
P.O. Box 1418
Maumee, OH. 43537
CEASE AND DESIST Maumee, OH. 23537?.Toledo, OHIO. 43614 Mine were paid in a different place and with the bill. It also appears he/she's using a cell phone with an extension. Ohio, if you would kindly post your Attorney General's Name and address on the internet for the State of Ohio, so the people that are being harassed by this phone number can file complaints for your further investigation and review.
Unfortunately?some credit card brokers believe they deserve all the fees and payments. And they are no where to be found, and never send you an actual legitimate bill.
I would like these people to stop calling me. I'm not who they are looking for.
A person by the name of Edward called my place of work for a debt of a family member of mine. Is this even legal?
I have received a call for a third party on my personal phone at my employers office. WHO ARE THESE PUSHY PEOPLE?
These folks won't stop calling my 82 year old grandmother... they are looking for the parents of my brother in law's wife... how random is that? My grandma barely knows these people and now she is getting collections calls for them. We are more than happy to give them all of the info we know about these people. They still wont stop calling her. This is making her blood pressure go up. These people are really rude and annoying.
I am not sure what this call is all about. Very intimidating. Very commanding.
Who are they..
I just got home from an extended vaction and found 20+ messages on my answering machine for someone who does not live at this address. The phone # requested I call back as it was urgent 888-300-0449 UCB. Other messages said if I was not the person to hang up. I deleated those calls.
"Shon" x6888 called my sister's house and left a message for my brother-in-law telling him to tell me to get in touch with him immediately. We can't figure out how they even made the connection; I've never used their address (another state) or phone, except as emergency contacts and even then, it was my sister's name. NOTE: My brother-in-law called the guy and read him the riot act.
mY NAME IS Charles is I work for UCB. There awesome f****ards
I got a call from "Mr. Smith" today. He was trying to reach my ex-husband with whom I haven't had any contact at all for over 15 years. I don't know how they got my number since 1) it's unpublished and 2) I've been married, widowed and remarried in that time, changing my last name twice since I last spoke with him. The funny part is that my ex-husband owns an insurance agency which can be found just by Googleing his name. "Mr. Smith" said he would take my number off of their list. We'll see if that happens.
My sister and my self got a call from this company. They do not give me any info except they are taking legal action and a file has been set up. I needed to call them back but have no idea what this is regarding.
They have called me 3 times and leave an account number and somone's name. I called them back and told them I was not the person they were asking for. They obviously had caller ID as they said they would take my number off the list. They said they were looking for this person. I asked if they were a collection agency and they said they were just looking for her.
Dumb nucken people, called my house everyday asking for someone I never heard of. Kelp asking me questions about the person. I yelled HELLO I don't know th e person.
this nasty woman calls from this number (not identifying her company name) - identifies herself as 'AGENT'so-and-so - i was out of town for a few days and when i got back there was a message from her saying "i am COMMANDING you to return my call..."
haha like she's from the x files or star wars or something - really makes me want to return the call...NOT!

My caller ID said "no data." I answered and the woman asked for Joanna. I asked her who was calling. She said she wasn't actually calling for me, but for Lauretta XXXXXX. I said she had the wrong neighbor. She explained that Lauretta XXXXX was my neighbor and that she put my name and phone number as a CONTACT NUMBER. I said I didn't know Lauretta. She replied "You don't know your next door neighbor?" I said "no, I just moved in here." The woman said she couldn't get hold of Lauretta XXXX and could I please just give her a message to call her. I asked if this was a debt collection or something. Miss Kelly assured me IT WAS NOT. She said she had documents on her desk that she needed to go over with her. I Googled the number and found this site. I'm ticked that I was lied to, and that she attempted to use me to embarass my neighbor! I was given the name Ms Kelly and the phone number 888-300-0449. She did not offer the company name. I asked what is the company/business/organization name- she stuttered, but eventually said: UCB. How do I stop my neighbor's creditor from bothering me at home?
tell them you have her phone number give them this number
what this number is...is a verizon busy signal test when you dial this number all you get is a busy signal.so for lying to you can you imagine her calling this number 6 times a day and for weeks and just getting a busy signal.
eventually thet probably will call you back then say she moved out a week ago or a few days ago.
WTF!!??? It had this same problem with this nasty women who calls
from "UCB" I'm not even sure if they are telling the truth. Months ago, I told them to stop calling me, sending me voice mails and remove by phone from their database. Then today, ohh....this f***in pissed me off
(1/9/08 about 4:00 PM) I get a f***in voice mail from 1-888-300-0449
asking for the SAME person they were looking for, who I wasnt!
serioisly, these people are stalkers. so, AGAIN i'm going to have to repeat that SAME problem I had MONTHS ago, about June-November, I'm going to have to repeat that same problem I had during that time, EVERY F***IN DAY recieving a nasty voice mail saying "I need you to call back" And seriously, i REALLY DO NOT want to talk to these nasty dumbfucks again.
there is also a website named "UCB" or go to ucb.com OH and BELIEVE
ME, it did NOT look ANYTHING like the so-called agency that these nasty people call from, besides UCB.com is in Belgium! so these people are basically
using some other company's name to hide their identity, and make it sound like their some kind of agents, making us want to call so its VERY possible
that we can somewhat get these people arrested for impersonating another company. stupid fucktards. they keep asking for some person named
"April Radusal" EVER since they bagan, STOPPED FOR AWHILE, then today
began AGAIN. and i REALLY am going to post about this scam, on about
EVERY website, including SCAM.com a website that warns us against scams and scammers out there
I keep getting calls from this number 8883000449 asking for someone with the same name as my dad, believing that my number is a number to be theirs. (My phone is on a family plan under my dad's name.) My family does not have any debt to pay collectors and its getting out of hand.
When they call, I try to explain the situation, but every time its a different person and they still call using three different numbers and an 'unknown' number and they still leave me voice mails to call back ASAP for something "urgent pertaining to the account for ---."
How do I make it stop?
-Frustrated college student.
Like the other posts above we were bothered with a similar story. I returned the call to officially state that I consider their repeated calls to be harassment and that if they EVER called my number and bothered my family again for something that has nothing to do with us, I would file a formal complaint under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Their disadvantage is that they didn't know that I know what I know.
I don't expect another call...

UCB is considered a 3rd party collection. Under the terms, FDCPA they are required to give a validation notice within 5 days of contact. This notice is to state that the debtor has 30 days to respond to this

Failure, can result in a fine not to exceed $1000 plus your attorney fees. Keep notes and the individuals you speak with, The FTC will request this information for possible fines and censure.
I got a message for a Catherine (last name garbled) to call Miss Sinclair back immediately on a "very important issue" and was given 888-300-0449, ext. 86713 and told to use reference #8036771. I don't know anyone by that name. I called to let them know that they needed to try a different # for whoever this person was. The first time I called the person I spoke with said that the reference # did not exist; I told her that the person asked for was not at this residence and she started asking for my personal information. I asked what business UCB was and she hung up on me. I called back and got Miss Sinclair, and made her listen to her own message. She agreed to remove my number from their database.
I received a call from sister in law who said some lady called her cell phone looking for my wife. Did not say who they were, just asked her if she knew a number to find her.
I got a voice mail message from someone who said they were calling me because I was listed as a relative of someone I do not know. I returned the call and gave the case # that was in the voice mail. There was no record of my name or number in the case file. I was instructed that if I got any other such calls to return the call and have them be sure my name and number were removed from the file. The operator with whom I spoke was very polite and apologized for the trouble.
not sure why everyone no here is saying its a suspicious company, its a debt collecter, if you owe money to a company, they sell your debt to a debt collecter and know you owe them the money. its called UBC, give them a call and straigten out our debt. or just tell them you dont have any money, or assets or income, and they will maybe leave you alone. or just change your number.
I just called them, and spoke to a lady and she marked me down as refusal to pay, and that is that.
A guy from this company, Mr, Mumble-mumble, left a message on my phone 3/11/09 for my father, who I haven't lived with for YEARS. He said to call 1-888-300-0449 x6851 and reference file# 80075502, and made it sound urgent, but was in no way clear as to what the call was really about. It sounded totally suspicious, so I "googled" the number and found this website. Creepy.
Miss Barnes just called and wanted to know about my next door neighbor. Funny thing was, I didn't live there anymore but recognized the neighbor's name. She made it sound like it was a very important emergency and she was unable to get ahold of my neighbor so Ms Barnes needed me to deliver a message to my neighbor. It sounded fishy and after getting the information, 888-300-0449 direct extension 86866 and reference number 80076158 I looked it up and found this site.
ASKED IF MY BOSS WAS AVAILABLE AND I ASKED WHAT IS WAS REGARDING THE PERSON REFFERED TO HER SELF AS "MISS KELLY" AND STATED THAT IT REGARED MY BOSSES RELATIVE THAT SHE DOES NOT HAVE AND SAID UBC NEEDED HER TO PASS ON A MESSAGE. TO CALL AT HER EARLIEST CONVIENCE AND LISTED 888-300-0449 AND EXT6049 WHEN I CALLED BACK TO SEE HOW URGENT IT WAS "MISS KELLY" WAS THE SAME PERSON WHO ANSWERED PHONES. I DON'T LIKE THE WAY IT SOUNDED SO I LOOKED THEM UP ON LINE AND FOUND THIS BLOG. I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE POINT OF CALL WAS BUT THEY NEVER SAID WHAT THERE BUSINESS WAS.
