I just reported them to the BBB and they have over 2000 complaints with them over the past 3 years most of the are bill/collections - I have also googled many reports on these people and keep finding the same that they are scamming people what ever you do don't pay them if you or your mother in law don't know what they are talking about as far as a bill and if the bill is accurate going directly through the account it is with. we need to stop these companies I am so worried that they are just taking so many people for their hard earned money it's not fair we need to take a stand

I have no idea what they are looking for - someone who had my number in the past? I had sent a complaint to donotcall.gov registry but they keep calling from new phone numbers. I ignore.

Caller name: Porfolio Recovery

I keep receiving phone calls from this number, which I do not answer. If they can't show who they are then I will not answer. I added my number to the "Do Not Call" list several months ago, but keep receiving call from this number.

I do not plan on answering this number unless, they include who they are.

Caller name: PH ID gives this number as caller.

I choose to identify the caller as "Scammer/Fraudster" to flag what I suspect. I would propose possibly "posing as a collection agency". I base this on my experience, plus what is described by other commenters here.

Caller ID gives this number plus "Portfolio ..." along with number. Never a voice. Always a hang-up when my auto-answer message begins.

I've not borrowed any money or used a credit card for over 30 years and have never had an overdue debt payment - ever.

I've been getting calls from "Portfolio..." for years, but have also had other collection agency calls. These started when I first got my phone number over 5 years ago.

Originally, for a few years, theses were from other agencies also. I've not kept track of names of agencies that have called, "Portfolio ..." has been an active nuisance for at least some months, feels like several years!

When I've been able to catch a real person leaving a message re collection issues, I've picked up the call and explained they've got a wrong number. Except for "Portfolio .." calls, I've cleared up most "collection" calls.

Last several days "Portfolio ..." @ 412-235-6111 has tried to call late into evening and early mornings as well as a few X during the day.

Extremely annoying - totally obnoxious.

Caller name: Portfolio Revovery

This number keeps calling me at work, no one is there when I pick it up, sometimes it transfers to a person. Today I talked to the person, they said they are a debt collector. I asked them to take my number off their list, since I don't have any uncollected debt. They said my number is not their system, they also acted like I called them and not visa versa. She couldn't remove my number since it wasn't in there. They've been calling me for months.

Same comments as above, except they used to come up on my caller ID as Portfolio Recovery. They constantly use new numbers, but never leave messages. And as of today I just received a call from 412-235-1109...new number, but I'm sure it's the same morons.

They call, but refuse to provide details about the debt they are seeking to collect on; they won't provide statements proving you made the charges to the company they are collecting on behalf of, and they won't give you any evidence that you owe them anything, except a piece of paper that states how much they want in payment, and where the debt originates. Apparently they are not required to prove the charges or actual amount, they just ask for a random (inflated) amount of money without any proof..These days if you have a debt, there is no statute of limitations really, they say there is, but companies can keep trying to collect for seven or so years, and then in the last days of the statute of limitations, sell it to another company to start the clock on another 7 years again. These people are the scum of collection agencies; they aren't just trying to collect a debt, they are trying to dishonestly collect as much money from you as they possibly can (beyond what you might owe), and they will go to great lengths to dishonestly pursue people's money.

What I do is disguise my voice and act like a business. And sometimes I just ask for a supervisor and then tell him to take out his debt card or go to the companies petty cash and pay it.. I love messing with them..

Just add the number to a fictitious contact i use the name Bill add their number and then under your cell phone options you can send all calls to voice mail. they will stop calling you because on their end the phone never rings and goes straight to VM and you never hear it ring. if you get multiple calls from different numbers you can add them to the same contact. if we all do it they will not make money and go out of business.

In response to:

British accent - called, asked whether my name was correct and hung up..

They keep calling my work number I see the number pick it up and hang up. They are really stupid calling on Saturday and even Sunday. I won't be acknowledging this call. Just let the statue of limitations expire. If you don't talk to them the clock eventually runs out.

Caller name: Ms Wiggins

I am the daughter-in-law of the woman they called for, I called back when I saw the caller ID; being that the areacode was 412 as is ours, I thought it may be regarding a different matter, when i called back, she identified by phone number, asked for my mother in law (whos number and home it is) when i asked her if I could take a message, she would not let me, became VERY stern, and said "Have her call Ms. Wiggins at this number " I asked her where she was calling from and she refused over and over to tell me...this is the first call from them, so i searched Google and PAGES like this came up. Well, i assume this is the beginning of many calls from this place...i will report back! wish me luck!

I see from all the comments this a collection agency. I do not owe anyone money period. I have had a couple of calls prior to this from other different agencies looking for someone who just happens to have the same name as me. I tell them it's not me and they take me off the list and don't call back. I did not answer when this caller ID came up, and now that I know who it is, I won't bother. They don't leave a message so it's not important to me.

Within 24 hours of having a new cell #, I received an onslaught of Portfolio Recovery calls.
What they are trying to recover has been paid off for years - but I am somehow stuck in a circle of Hades with them.

I get calls from this number, no message. I don't answer the phone because it's not someone I know. I looked up the number and found this site. We have no debt - other than mortgage and car - both are paid ON TIME. They can go away...

This # calls,my cell ph
I dont answer #s I do not know.
This # is added to my Blocked list.
They called me 5xs in 2 days.
They ve veen randomly xalling for awhile.
I do not enguage in conversation with them.
I read the comnents about this number
I do have a couple of xredit cards that I stopped paying on in 2008 & 2009. duw to an illness and lose of my job.
By now 2014, yes the small debt ia on my credit report. Too small to file a bankrupcy. Yet I did not or do not have $$ or a way to pay this very small debit back including the high interest and late fees that stacked up.
I use to work in accounting and these xompaniea WRITE THESE SMALL DEBTS OFF AS A LOSE !! And go after customers when the debt is a high amount! And debt companies like this try to collect the debt AFTER THE FACT - making a profit!!!! For themselves.
Meaning the debt is already WROTE OFF by the original larger conpany like Sears or Bank One or Whoever.
Yes its on our credit report. But it drops off after 7 years.
Is true. So why pay a second or third party debt collector?
Unless we are working with a credible company to clear up our credit report.
Because yes, it could be a SCAM !

Caller name: Portfolio Recovery

They have been calling me for several years. Portfolio Recovery. I love it, I am way beyond the statue of limitations. I could send them a letter and then they would have to stop but I like the idea that they have to pay people to keep calling.

My suggested way to deal with them when they call, this is what I do and some of them get really aggravated.

I ask who the debt is with, when they say it is sears or verizon (who I tried to settle with originally) I ask why I would pay a company other than sears or verizon, they say they are in charge of the debt. I let them know I never shopped with portfolio so why would I ever pay them. They will keep insisting that they are now the owner of the debt and I tell them they should then contact verizon or sears to collect the debt. They will continue to call but some of them really loose there cool.

Sometimes I will say to them that I am a little distracted because I am in the middle of watching a p**n move so they have to excuse me if I ask them to repeat themselves. This gets them mad. I actually had a supervisor get on the phone telling me how rude I was, a few words into his talking to me I told him I had to go because I was about to you know what (he started screaming at me and I hung up). LOL

I will also sometimes just say OKAY to everything they say as if I am a recording that is stuck on the work OKAY.

I moved and got a new phone number, they were on it within 24 hours and started calling. Thing is I didn't want the phone number, it was required with my cable plan. I hooked it up to my fax machine and set it to auto pickup.

I am so busy at work otherwise I would love to start talking with them, my wife and my friends would laugh so hard when they would hear me talking to them.


If you answer the phone, play with them let them get nasty, if you keep your cool they get more and more aggravated.

Good luck and keep your cool.

They have been calling me for quite some time now. No voicemail, nothing. They just call over and over. I don't answer the phone when I don't know the number. Maybe they should, I don't know, leave a message if it's actually something of importance.
