Caller name: Portfolio Recovery

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

This company has information from the online security breaches that happened earlier this year against Sony and several banks. They attempt to call from several different numbers across the nation (probably using Magicjack or Skype so they can't be traced) but most in VA. They are doing nothing more that phishing for account information to clean out your account. THIS IS A SCAM, DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY INFORMATION!!

Add these numbers to your block list:
757-275-8578
757-506-0177
731-256-7106
620-860-2755

Would a legit company spoof their phone numbers across so many areas?

Called and left no message. After reading previous comments I'd like to add the following to brief people about their rights, statute of limitations (SOL) on debt, and penalties for collection companies that harass you.

The good news is that the SOL for many states is as little as 2 years. Once this time passes many collections agencies (who paid pennies on the dollar or nothing at all to obtain your loan information) will find it difficult to be awarded a judgement in their favor because the loan was between you and someone other than the collection agency pursuing you. For those of you who find it morally wrong to simply NOT repay your debt consider this; the company you owed money to either sold your bad debt, or are no longer in business, so you are now being harassed and hounded by a company who uses every tactic possible (recording it for use against you) to collect money that is often times a 2nd or 3rd collection process for the same dead loan, and often it was not even yours to begin with. You'll hear a lot of negative press about FCNB (which is all false BTW). The true story with this credit card issuer is that they went under years ago, but a number of people gathered FCNB's records from several trash bins and the people calling you say they represent FCNB, but they are trying to get you to pay then anything they can as it represents pure profit to them.

Now for the bad news. You'll love this I'm sure. Collection agencies are imposed fines against them, and there are even class action suits filed against them, which they tend to lose. Are you sitting down? You should before you continue. Sitting? Good. The maximum amount a collection agency can be fined for a class action suit against them is only 1% of their net worth! Our government (society if you will) actually makes it their best interest to lie and steal from you. Makes you want to become a debt collector doesn't it? And you can hire all the losers who have no background or work history for which they might gain employment anywhere else knowing that most last less than a week in such a role and just never come in to work one day (never getting paid a cent for the time spent).

Here's a link regarding the SOL for all states....

Caller name: Portfolio Recovery Associates

Caller type: Debt Collector

This debt collector called my cell a couple times this week, but never left a message. Today I called back. Portfolio Recovery Resources is attempting to collect an unpaid electrical bill owed by my ex-husband- one which he incurred several months after I left and after our divorce was final. They referred to me by my maiden name, which didn't faze me since I use it professionally (I've since re-married). Portfolio's lady was unable to tell me when the debt ws incurred- how convenient, right? "We don't recognize divorce decrees in our office." Not my problem, tootsie pop! Sure glad my new husband recognizes them. :-D Click.

Caller name: Beth in TN

Caller type: Unknown

Beth kept asking for me by name, but would not identify what company she was calling from or what her business was (but repeatedly volunteered she was calling from TN). I never acknowledged I was who she was calling for, but she continued for 90 seconds being rude and persistent asking me if I was me. I ended up hanging up when she would not identify what company she was calling from.

An above comment suggests they may have gotten my info from Sony and I believe that is quite possible, as I was registered on the PS3 system when it had it's break in last year.

I had recieved a phone call from the following numbers, 757-275-8578, 731-256-7106 and, 620-860-2755, saying that I owe money back from 2002. Considering I was only 4 years old, I find that very suspicious. So... I did some research. According to the law, I can sue them for harrassment if I can get enough information out of them. So I called back once right after they called me, I didnt have time to answer the first time, it had said that this number was no longer in service. So I thought to my self hmmmm really huh? And that is when I had enough and the next time they called I cussed them out, told them to go to h**l, and that was the end of it.

Hey Jack! You seem to be a little defensive about this Portfolio Recovery Company on this forum. Let me tell you what, I have an ex-wife who tried to rack up a lot of debt using my name. I believe they call that "Identity Theft" now a days, but back then, that was called "Common Practice" of Military Spouses while Husband is deployed. Anyways, During the divorce process, my ex racked up nearly $18,000 in Military towns using my SS #. Well it took me about 7 years to clear my name, and this was 20 years ago. And to this day, I am still getting calls about her finances, because she can use what ever name she wants. Well guess what, it enlightens me that these websites exist so we can see who is legit or not. And by the looks of this, it only adds evidence to my case. So Thank you one and all. Will be recording the conversation and using that as evidence against my Ex-wife, and hopefully that will finally get her a*s convicted.

Caller type: Unknown

The call was coming from number above, from VA. It was a lady, also very rude, asking for my husband's first name. I kept asking her name, she said it was Gloria, but would continue to fire me with repetitive questions for my husband's first name and then if I was so and so wife. Eventually she identified herself with Portfolio recovery services. I realized she had the wrong last name, and told her this wasn't the person she was asking for, and she continued to fire telling why I said yes in the beginning. I had to hang up because she kept just talking nonsense, in circles, very annoying and wasting my time. Thanks to the other comments, very helpful to find them here.
