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.
Portfolio Recovery has been calling me for over a year for an account that I never even had. They call 2-3 times a day and never leave messages. When I told them I never had an account with so and so they send me paperwork to report identity theft asking for incident case number and person responsible. If I knew that I would have already filed charges. Still they continue to call all day, everyday, even throughout the weekend.
These people are calling for an account that my husband never had and when I tell them that they say how do you know he doesn't they wont leave a message the house number isn't even associated with my husband and I have gotten information out of them and last I knew you could disclose information to people due to confidentiality
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 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
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 claim to have filed a law suit but yet when said something about paper work and has to go through courts they say what paper work we don't do that. A lawsuit has to go through the courts and you be served with papers. Just a bully tactic they do so many things that are illegal!!
Harrassment from them never stops!! Today calls were back to back 4 times and at work at that and you can be sure they will call again! at home!
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.
This number called me early in the morning..and then hung up...I do not have any outstanding bills..I have read the previous comments...I would imagine that these people are doing something unlawful. I have a lawyer..I am going to give this number to my lawyer..a former Supreme Court judge of the state I live in...maybe that will fix them. I imagine that they are going to try to ask people for their socials...if that is the case, law enforcement should be involved!
started receiving these calls a few months ago and never answer. It is on my phone every day I come home. This morning I picked up to ask that my number be removed. Immediately got a hang up signal. So with the amount of calls to the public is there anyway to have the Attorney General in Pa. take the company to court?
