I have tried numerous times to call them back no one ever awnsers and when they call me and the robot says to push 0 to talk to an operater they hang up on me this is beyond ridiculous it is not even for me and if I look it up there is not even an actual company really wtf
Caller name: Maya Sellers
This woman who claimed to be a "private investigator" called my home phone (which is restricted to the public) to tell me she was looking for my daughter, and that if she did not call this number back (855.820.6082) within one hour, they will come get her. The number is one of the many numbers for URG Offices. This aggressive harrassment has caused my family and I stress. as they keep calling and calling - and always with a different number. If the phone calls continue, I will contact my attorney and will file a harrassment suit.
Caller name: Miss Brown
I keep getting calls from someone named Miss Brown at "URG offices" which claims to be a collection agency and claims that I have defrauded a financial institution and that I live in Maryland and that Im about to get served by authorities. I don't owe anybody anything, and yet these people continue to call, trying to get the last 4 digits of my social security number. Very sophisticated scam!
There are a number of URG firms -- United Recovery Group firms in the US, and at least one (in Arizona) appears to be owned by people with criminal records.
How to stop this? This isn't a collection case, this is a scam for private data.
District of Columbia

i keep getting calls from a lady who says her name too fast for me to understand what she's saying, but she called claiming she's a private investigator and that there was a claim against me and i needed to call "the plaintiff" (URG) at 855-819-6106 within an hour or i would be "served" at my work or home, she also has started calling other family members and won't stop,when they call back to back , sometimes 8 times a day is harrasment and this company needs to stop calling under false identity, when i call back i get an automated service, i'm not sure what i can do besides changing my phone number, but does that mean my family also needs to do this in order for them to stop?
Caller name: URG
I have gotten many calls from this collections agency, they call from (855) 656-3341, I called back and lady asked for my case number and I did not have one, she asked me for my name and I gave it to her, she asked me you have not been served yet, I advised no, she said oh hold on came back with an address I have not been in for over 7 years, she than asked about another address where I no longer stay and advised I would be served in 48 hours and hung up. I have also gotten calls saying they were claim against myself but did not want to because they did not think I knew of the situation, When I first started getting these calls I was very nervous until years kept passing and nothing came of it. SJ
Caller name: Kimberly Watts
Have been receiving the same call as well, and she leaves messages saying that I have committed fraud. Then says that they need my address to serve me a complaint. What nonsense -- if I committed a fraud I would be indicted by the district attorney not court papers. Obviously does not know the law.
Caller name: Angie Stewart
The debt is for my daughter who is 27 years old. I've told them I am
not responsible for her debts and to quit calling me at work, IT IS NOT
MY DEBT. I told them on several occasions to remove my name and phone number and quit harrassing me. Angie told me they would continue to call me until the debt is taken care of.. They will not tell me what the debt is for or how much but I can give them a credit card number and it will all be handled. Yea, like I'm going to do that! I told them I was going to file a complaint against them wherever I can to get this to stop.
Caller name: urg
they keep calling me about coming to my job, my home, my family members home. they say I wrote a bad check to try and cover a loan. I don't even own a check book. I wish they would stop calling me.
Caller name: Brandy at urg
Sounds like everyone here has a similar experience as mine with this organization. Anyone know the mailing address? I want to send them a certified letter to stop calling me but they won't give me an address. When I did a Google search I found one in UT but they say they are eastern time.
Caller name: Larry Johnson, Ms. Starns
been harassing me for over a year now and my parents home as well (looking for me). I have blocked numerous numbers but they keep calling with new numbers. I currently have an attorney that is trying to get info from them. They are not cooperative, will not give a physical building address or any information. They even told him that there is no such person working at that office and never had been. They have threatened to come to my home, my place of work, etc. and even gave a date and time at one point, but of course no one ever showed up. I've called the police and now I am reporting them to the Attorney General Office for my state! I am hoping we can retrieve something so we can shut them down have them thrown in jail or sue them for harassment but these crooks will not give any info. One thing I am sure of is that there is a hot place waiting for all of them in h**l when their day comes!
Caller name: I couldn't understand her name
My ex husband told that some lady was calling me for debt. And was looking for me that if i didn't get ahold of her that i was going to be going court.

Caller name: Mike
I share the same name as someone who is heavily in debt and her phone number isn't published and mine is. They keep calling my number and harrassing me and telling me they are going to come to my house or my place of employment to serve me with papers. I would like to see them try. I have asked them repeatedly to remove my phone numbers from their list as I have told them it isn't me. They have told me the last four digits of her SSN and her DOB. You would think I would know my own info, right? They think I'm lying! They need to be shut down!
Caller name: MS Starz
Woman called me stating that I owed a debt from 2008 and she needed immediate payment or they were going to start seizing my personal property (house/cars). Called my father-in-law repeatidly and convinced him that I needed to pay them ASAP or i would be going to court and it could cost us up to 10k in court fees. My husband found out and had me make payment arrangements with them. I paid them $700 with the commitment to pay the other $700 that was supposedly owed at the end of the next month. Ms. Starz called me 2 weeks later saying that I missed my payment and that I needed to pay the other $700 immediatly. I called my band and they said that she had been trying to run my credit card for the last 2 days and that I needed to cancel the card. I called Ms. Starz and told her to cease and desist. I told her that I would not pay another dime unless she sent me a letter through US Post stating that I owed this $. She went bat s**t crazy on me and continues to call me harrassing me.
Caller name: urg
This lady has been the rudest lady I've ever spoke to. She called my family and discussed my payments with her and throated to have the cops serve me for court. Also said that the money I already paid was getting taken off my account and I would still owe that portion to. Find it rude that they called me at least 8 times in one day. Wouldn't give me there address or any info I asked for.
Caller name: Monica Jones-URG
I received 3 calls yesterday and one voicemail. The voice mail was from a Brian Knight and stated that I had 2 hours to return the call regarding case # XXXXXX and that if I didn't they would further proceedings, stating that I was committing fraud and breech of contract. When I returned the call to see what it was in reference to and asked for Brian Knight, I was told he was out on a legal matter. Then I spoke to a Deborah Night. She told me that I had a pay day loan that needed to be paid and if I did not pay it right then I would be served papers at my home, place of employment or a family members home. I called the Sheriffs Dept and a deputy came to my home and took a statement for harassment. The next call I received was from a Monica Jones. She informed me that because I refused to pay the money that I would be marked as refusal to pay and further the proceedings. This morning I called the Nebraska Department of Banking and Finance and filed a complaint. There is no debtors prison in Nebraska and they cannot charge a person with bank fraud/wire fraud/breech of contract etc. These companies are not licensed in Nebraska. I was also told that they have no right to proceed with any legal matters regarding pay day loans. The lady Monica Jones called back this morning and I told her that I was not speaking to her, that I had filed a complaint and gave her the information of the contact person. She hung up on me.
Caller name: Kayla
This Kayla person just left a message on my home number stating she is looking for my sister and has a summons out against her for an unpaid debt. And, they will show up at her residence and all of her family members residence and jobs if my sister doesnt pay. Oh really? Since when does that happen for a debt? I called them back and one woman claimed she will make a note to not call my # again. They better not. So sad that there are snakes out there who will do anything to make a quick dollar. Go get a job and enjoy your own money you work for instead of trying to scam ppl out of their money!
Caller name: 8555199524
I keep getting a call from people claiming to be from URG Legal department. They claim that they have a case associated with my cell phone number and that I am being investigated. They have now started calling people on my contact list with the same thing. This needs to be stopped. I am on the national do not call list and believe that they cannot harass me and my family like this.
Caller name: "URG" Law offices
I have told them several times to stop calling me - they apparently got my number from Google (or the like) - as a neighbor of a relative of the person they are seeking. Calling to collect from the son of a neighbor (who is now dead). They leave very long messages, including the caller's name, debtor's name, return call phone number, case number, etc. But just called back again, they say "we do not make outbound calls" and pretend innocence. [They camouflage their number on Caller Id as "out of area.") I do not know how to contact their debtor (as I have repeatedly told them). I now consider this harassment.
i'm so relieved and grateful to find this page and learn that URG is a scam. I got a call this morning from their offices and it showed up on my cell as an unknown number. I was told by some lady named 'Nicole Thompson' to call back 866-807-8264 as my "case was under investigation and legal action will be taken" i called the number and was directed by a recorded message to talk to an "agent" they said they were "URG offices" so i hung up before I reached an operator. I googled the office and the phone number and there is an entire consumer report on these people for illegal practices. You can find it here at the Better Business Bureau http://www.bbb.org/blog/2013/03/beware-debt-collection-phone-scams/
I do in fact have a payday loan that isn't fully paid back yet so i was worried but as it turns out, these people have no rights without providing legal documentation. I will contact the loan provider later today and pay them back on my own terms for which i signed the contract. I WILL NOT DEAL WITH URG AT ALL.
Caller name: URG. Rebecca davis

Caller name: URG 855-554-1208
This company keeps calling my family members looking for me but can't seem to call my phone directly. At one time I returned the call (it was a different number that what was used this time) and they wanted me to verify my personal information. Not happening. These people need to be stopped.
Caller name: Michell White & Regina
They keep calling for an unknown person iI have never heard of citing a court case, giving a case number and court action. I have never heard of that person and he has never had my phone number. They are doing a poor job of skip tracing if they are not verifying the number. Will be filing a complaint through the Federal Trade Commission in Washington.
Caller name: Allison Brooks
Left a voice mail telling me info about how my husband defrauded the bank and how he had a legal pending case against him. He could dispute it but it wouldn't do any good as he owed the money. They made contact with him, told him he needed to go get a prepaid credit card and he could pay that way. Im trying to tell him its a fraud but he's worried. Guess I need to show him this page. Maybe then he'll see im right.
Caller name: Ashley King
Ashley King from URG offices called my husband's ex-wife looking for me stating I had an important legal matter to attend to and that they were sending someone to my job and that I needed to handle before it went to court. I have left two messages and no return call. I let them know I would turn it over to my attorney and that they could go through them. The call back number given was 866-938-2863. ext 253 with a case number. I have received this type of calls before and they are relentless in their efforts. When you try and get actual information they give you the run-around.
Caller name: Angela Danson and a Mr. Harrison
On Thursday 3/10/14 at 9:36 am a Angela Danson called with this number 308-210-4680 advising me of a claim against me, from some place I had never heard of! She advised that I call back to 855-529-7606 Ext 273, at 12:04 this same day and from the 308-210-4680 number a Mr. Harrison called and advised me of a bad pay day loan from such and such and I have not had any for years. I then said I would like to know the location of their business and he hung up on me. I was told to file a complaint with our local sheriff's dept, and the attorney general, which I will be doing soon!!! Also was advised that if they call again to please tell them to send proof of the debt through the postal service.
Caller name: URG OFFICES
Someone called and said they were an investigator. They were investigating me for check fraud. I have not written anyone any check that has not been honored. They gave me two hours to call them back or they were going to have me served with papers at home or at work. She said if I could not be found I would have a failure to appear and I would be tried in my absence.
Call came through as unknown but same as all reports. Was told I need to call back 855-844-9357 because of some legal action pending against me for breach of contract. I have no idea what she is talking about. Glad I checked what others are saying before I call this scammer back. Send me any papers and take me court lady!! I owe nothing to anyone so I am sure this is some sort of scam!!!
Caller name: URG Offices
I've had the general experience as others with these crooks. I reported them to Federal Consumer Protection agency, and they could find no address for them. They referred my complaint to the FTC. Maybe they can find them and take legal action against them.
Caller name: URG

Caller name: United Receivables Group 8552874969
They threatened me stating that they would come arrest if i did not set up a payment plan with them. I told them I did not receive a validation letter so they sent it to my email?? Never seen that before. They have my social, birth date, address, old bank accounts (they are all closed). When I told them I do not have a debit/credit card I would send a money order to the agency that the debt is from, they got mad and said that they would call my mom and had her phone number too!! I did not confirm her phone number or anything else. They ended up hanging up when I told them that they are all over the internet as scammers. Their website www.urgonline.com has a contact number different from what they call me from.
Caller name: URG
Called my Job but the number came up as Anonymous about and old debt in 2013... She stated that I have to pay by a credit card with a MasterCard or Visa logo and the amount will be 2 $900 payments every 2 weeks...

Caller name: Jessica DICKerson,phone number 855-294-3910, ext. 294
Got a VM last week form a gal who stated that it was a very important, personal business matter and that I better call her back IMMEDIATELY. The first VM, she did not leave her name or the company name. I researched, found out it was a company called URG and decided to call her back and leave a, well, not so nice message. Of course, she called me back, like I knew she would, and in her VM she left her name, told me that she was going to call me every day and that they were going to take me to court and MAKE me pay. So, since then, I have called her every single day and have left a message every time explaining in many, explicit explanations how she was NOT going to see any money from me. Still waiting for her to turn my VM's into the HR at my work, Like she threatened to do. :) :) :)
Receive calls everyday. Usually 2-3 times daily. Threatened me today that I was being sued and would be servied with summons to appear within 24-48 hrs. I asked for a name, or the reason they keep calling, I was only able to receive URG Law Firm. They wouldn't even tell me what state they were in. The male person on the phone was so rude it was incredible. He asked me if I thought he was an "idiot". "I hear the same bull story from you people all the time." Can't the authorities do something about these people? They have a home telephone number for me and a cell. They won't quit with the threats.
Caller name: Murphy
Got a call from this very unprofessional person stating they were looking for my 30 year old daughter and would not tell me for what. He proceeded to tell me to tell my daugher to call a number he provided by 6PM today and hung up on me. Extremely pissed for being hung up on I called the number right back and got someone name Shawda. I asked to speak to a manager and she proceeded to ask me questions about who I was pretenting she did not know why I called. So I asked to speak to her manager and she hung up on me as well. These people called my number while I'm at work about something I have nothing to do with and displayed a level of disrespect and unprofessionalism that should not be ignored. This type of harrassment has to stop!

Caller name: Agent Morales
Three times I have spoken with different people there at URG Offices and asked that they not call me regarding a person (Flora Martinez case# 1112842) who I don't know! Apparently, having the same last name automatically makes us relatives. This time, Agent Morales #855-820-6105 threatened via voice mail that they were prepared to contact law enforcement officers to come to my home and arrest "Flora Martinez" for whatever reason! At this point, I welcome them and law enforcement to come to my residence, I would love to see them in person and be able to file harassment and any other charges I can against them!
