First this same place called with a Miami, FL # and left nasty messages for someone who is not known in our house. Same people now calling from this #, asking for a different person, also not known in our house. They make threats sometimes, sometimes say nothing, just wait and sometimes just hang up.
Constant calls for last couple of weeks. Several times a day and in evening. When we answer, no one replies to our hello. They leave no message when we let answering machine pick up. I have no idea who this is or what they want. I do know what I want... I want them to stop calling my number.
This number and multiple other call and harrass me at least 10-15 times a day along with private looking for someone i DONT EVEN KNOW! downright rude, i started calling one number in particular she answers the phone and says "Isenburg and Whitman" SHE HATES ME NOW! i call and harrass her right back! they say it takes 30 days to get out of the system
Calling saying they are a law firm trying to see me summons to court on some cash advance pulled from the internet. They have some of my friends names and know all kind of info on me. This s**t is crazy. Call after call they won't talk to my lawyer.
Keeps calling my house and family members and anyone who has the same last name as me. They're telling me they are going to serve court documents to me and are asking if I will be there and verify the address. THIS IS A SCAM!!!!! I have called my lawyer numerous times but they refuse to answer the phone and when they do they hang up on him and change the number.
There are complaints about them all over the internet for harassing people that do not owe the debt, threatening to arrest people for a debt, telling people the only way they'll stop calling is to pay "court costs" on an alleged suit they filed, etc. According to some of the MANY complaint pages and numbers they've called using, it seems they call about debts that are 5-10 years old, don't care if they were paid or not because they want money. There are people who have fallen for this, and stated that they paid, and are STILL waiting on getting the documentation of the debt from them. Of course, their story is that they sent it out ... yeah, right.
What's laughable is one page on their website that says they follow the law during collection attempts. OBVIOUSLY, NOT! THEY have an F rating with the FL BBB (see below).
By the way, it would seem to me that, IF you had a bad debt, it would show on your credit report (if still eligible to be reported). IF you do have a bad debt on your credit report, you might want to consult an attorney and/or the original creditor, rather than these folks who obviously could care less about the law. [I am NOT an attorney, nor do I profess to be one. I am NOT dispensing “legal advice,” simply giving my opinion!]
IF they were calling about a legitimate debt, they would NOT be calling to see if you'll be home all day on certain day to "deliver legal documents" or "subpeona." A legit collector CANNOT discuss your bill with anyone else OR threaten to arrest you and/or send you to debtor's prison, etc.
Make yourself aware of the rules in the FAIR DEBT COLLECTION PRACTICES ACT.--http://www.ftc.gov/os/statutes/fdcpa/fdcpact.shtm
Here is more info on it from the FTC Consumer information -- http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0149-debt-collection
It's glaringly apparent that these folks enjoy breaking most of these rules.
Hope this helps someone!
As well as filing a complaint with your State Attorney General and the FTC, you can also file complaints in Florida.
Here is the Florida Office of Financial Regulation's complaint info page:

“Please use this website to report suspected terrorism or criminal activity. Your information will be reviewed promptly by an FBI special agent or a professional staff member. Due to the high volume of information that we receive, we are unable to reply to every submission; however, we appreciate the information that you have provided.”
[NOTE: As far as I’m personally concerned, the behavior of these companies IS a form of domestic terrorism, although the FBI may not.]
It also occurs to me that, particularly on the GreenDot/Prepaid card “payments,” since they are apparently difficult to trace, I seriously doubt they are reporting these funds on their income taxes === tax evasion. (That’s the way they finally got Al Capone!) The IRS has forms for reporting suspected evasion, and even a reward form you can complete for if you help them catch the folks!
http://www.irs.gov/Individuals/How-Do-You-Report-Suspected-Tax-Fraud-Activity%3F (I’m 99% sure it’s the Form 3949-A that you’ll want to complete if you’ve been swindled by these folks.) It looks like Form 211 is to claim a reward!
http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f3949a.pdf -- Form 3949-A
http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f211.pdf -- Reward form
I personally don’t care WHICH branch of the government goes after these people, as long as THEY get REAL FEDERAL ARREST WARRANTS out on them!! So, if you’ve been taken in by these folks, besides filing with the above, don’t forget the IRS! (You KNOW they like going after money!!!)
It may not help, but it certainly wouldn’t hurt to fill the mailboxes at the White House with letters about these folks. If the President wants to get involved with courts and everyday peoples’ lives, then he needs to get involved in THIS!
http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact -- to the right side of the page, there are links for leaving online comments, writing a letter, or calling the White House.
I'd suggest giving a list of time, date, phone number, and anyone's name you were given on these calls...EVEN if you didn't answer or it went to VM.

SUGGESTIONS (again, I am NOT an attorney and am NOT attempting to dispense legal advice. These are my PERSONAL suggestions)
1-IF you decide to answer one of their MANY calls from about 50 different telephone numbers (no, I’m not exaggerating), give them NO INFORMATION. In fact, YOU MAKE THEM ANSWER QUESTIONS, and if they don’t, hang up on them! I don’t know anything about spoofing/masking numbers, but there have been comments that they are VOIP’ing the majority of the numbers they’re calling from. I do not doubt this, as a person said the number showing on her phone was that of the local police department.
2-Keep a running log of the date, time, telephone number, person calling and note of conversation to file with your complaints. (Or, try to record the call, BUT they usually hang up when they’re told they’re being recorded. ROFLOL, now how many LEGITIMATE collection agencies would do that? NONE that I’ve ever heard!
3-Look up your state’s Statute of Limitations on debts that can be pursued in court (that you can still be sued for). It seems to vary from 3-15years.
4-DO NOT allow them to intimidate or frighten you. These idiots have even called the numbers attorneys, police officers, etc. with this scam. Intelligent, they are NOT.
1-call friends, neighbors, relatives, employers, and you trying to intimidate you into paying JUST to make the calls stop (but, from looking online, they don’t stop…they just demand more). – Ask these folks to also keep a log of the calls, give them this internet page to check. Ask them to do a search for ANY of these company names. They’ll soon realize it that these people are nothing but SCAMMERS.
2-“…have important legal documents (or summons) to deliver, will you be home ---(day) from 8:30 to 4:30 to accept it?”
3-“There’s a warrant out for your arrest UNLESS you send us $x*x TODAY” -- they seem to prefer asking for the “Green Dot” prepaid card and want you to call back with the numbers on back … harder to trace where to $ goes, apparently.
