Caller name: Portfolio Recovery Services
Company is portfolio recovery services. Parent company is Portfolio Recovery Associates currently being traded on the NY stock market. Company has been known to spoof a cell phone number in any of your known locations attempting to collect junk debt. If you receive a call from one of their agents do not help them identify you and definitely do not acknowledge any debt. If you do they will place a ding on your credit report for the junk debt and use the recorded phone call as evidence against you in court. In order to stop receiving phone calls you must send them a certified cease and desist letter. If they harass you one more time file a complaint with the FTC and you will win 5 grand.

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:
Would a legit company spoof their phone numbers across so many areas?
This number (I didn't answer, but called back) had a recording saying they were a collection agency. (some of the most ruthless, desperate two legged predators on the face of the earth).
Have gotten several calls from this number.
I owe noboby anything...
I bought a whistle and every time I get one of these calls I give them an ear full. I do it with all the "unknown" numbers. It's becoming a game to me so I don't mind getting these calls now. LOL
I totally agree with O Really on those phone numbers. Receiving calls from 757-275-8578 and 757-506-0177 several times every month. I have one more phone number 774-271-7100 which is from MA to be added into the scam list. The scammer/fraudster might get my personal info from online account breach, then use this info to contact me for trying to get my financial privacy.

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.
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.

Why dont you stop being an a** hole and, go away? Some people want this sh** to stop. If the girl as a phone, so what? She is 10 years old. What if she goes to the park down the street and something happens to whoever she is with? She cant just go door to door if its a life or death situation. Now I suggest you leave people alone or I'll report you.

Keep track of PRA's calls! ESPECIALLY to your cell phones! Why? Because calling your cell w/o your express permission is a violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. A recent class action suit in FL lists the specific offense that PRA is making:
Atlanta, GA: A class action lawsuit has been filed against Defendant Portfolio Recovery Associates, LLC ("PRA") in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida on behalf of all persons in the State of Florida who, since February 18, 2011, received a non-emergency telephone call from PRA to a cellular telephone through the use of an automatic telephone dialing system or an artificial or prerecorded voice and who did not provide prior express consent for such calls during the transaction that resulted in the debt owed.
According to the Complaint, PRA violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act ("TCPA") by using automatic dialing systems and/or an artificial or prerecorded voice to contact cell phone users about purported debts without their prior consent. As described in the Complaint, Ms. Harvey, the named plaintiff in the action, was repeatedly contacted since February 18, 2011 on her cell phone about a purported credit card debt. The plaintiff never consented to those calls, nor did she provide PRA with her telephone number.
Under the TCPA, PRA could be ordered to pay attorneys' fees, litigation expenses and costs of the lawsuit, and statutory damages of $500 for each negligent violation, and/or $1,500 for each knowing and/or willing violation. According to the Complaint, the potential Class Members are estimated to number in the tens of thousands. Additionally, the complaint alleges collective damages exceeding five million dollars ($5,000,000).
So - Track the calls, find a consumer advocacy attorney, make some $$$!
(Then sue them for violations of the Fair Debt Collection Act and Fair Credit Reporting Act for even more $$$!)
PS: If you win, they have to pay your attorney's fees so most lawyers will take these cases on contingency!
Caller name: Portfolio Recovery Associates
It's Portfolio Recovery Associates,
these Pr*cks have been calling my home phone for 4 or 5 years.. almost daily.. and they have the wrong person.. wrong name. And now their calling my new cell, that I just got a few months ago.. And guess what? their asking for a different name and person. Never heard of them.
Sending them a Cease and Desist letter.. This comes from Portfolio Recovery Associates 's website themselves ( http://www.portfoliorecovery.com/faq/portfolio-recovery-associates-cease-and-desist-letter.php ) :
"Q: I’ve read that I can have a “Cease and Desist” letter sent to you that will legally prevent you from calling me.
A: According to the law, you certainly can send Portfolio Recovery Associates (PRA) a Cease and Desist letter. At that point, Portfolio Recovery Associates’ communications to you will stop. However, that Cease and Desist letter to Portfolio Recovery Associates does not affect a person’s legal or moral obligation to pay the debt. If the debt is legally owed, Portfolio Recovery Associates may, under certain circumstances, file a lawsuit against you"
Well I say to Portfolio R. A. My C & D letter is on it's way! so

Caller name: Portfolio Recovery
How do you find out their address to serve them cease and desist papers.
This number calls like twice a day, then won't call for a couple of days, then it starts all over again! Don't know who they are never talked to anyone they never say anything when I do answer, tried calling THEM back and its always busy! Weird! & Annoying!
Caller name: Portfolio Recovery services
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.
how dopey are you posters? Stop playing games with unknown numbers and this forum! Portfolio Recovery something or other.....a clear and concise collection agency.
It is so annoying, they call you at work, but I suspect you have your phone on all the time in reach for "non-annoying" calls. If you do not want to be bothered with it, just block it or ignore it!
Geez, so many damned drama queens!
Caller name: Elise
I answered the call and she just asking me if I was so and so. I ask her who she wad and then she started screaming at me, told me she had already told me. I told not not to call me and be RUDE!!! Then she hung up. If they call back I'm going to report it to the lical police.....the.y repeatedly call me and this time I answered..never again
Caller name: Unknown
I have receive repeated calls from 757-275-8578, 731-256-7106 and 757-506-0177. I never pick up since I don't recognize the number. The caller never leaves a message. It is extremely annoying as they often call while I am at work.
This number just came up on my caller ID. I did not answer. But for the past two weeks I have been receiving calls from different numbers that I have no clue who these people are. Here are the other numbers.
Caller name: did not give
I got a call form this number and the male on the other end kept asking if I was so and so. After the 5th time they asked, I told them I wasn't going to play their game. He would not identify himself and was rude. He told me he didn't have time to play games. It certainjly sounded like that was what he was doing to me.
Caller name: No Name
No message left on any of the 30 calls they have placed to my number thus far, which is very annoying. Researching what legal actions I can take against them, since they have been calling as early as 7am and as late as 11pm.
Caller name: Beth in TN
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.
Caller name: Ginger, Joe, Keith, Bethany, and James
I received a call from this number, did not answer.....I screen phone calls what can I say. Anyway I found this site, did some reading, and now am currently going on my 5th hour of prank calling them back using various different accents I am quite good at. Actually kinda fun when ya got nothin better to do on a day off.
