This company violates the the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (also known as Public Laws 95-109 and 99-361) The act states; “ a debt collector may not communicate, in connection with the collection of any debt, with any person other than a consumer, his attorney, a consumer reporting agency if otherwise permitted by law, the creditor, the attorney of the creditor, or the attorney of the debt collector.” They violate the law by calling anyone other than the debtor as quoted above. I inherited a phone number from a debtor (whom i dont know) and have been constantly harassed by debt collectors ever since. They also violate the Do Not Call Registry Act. The act states; ”if a consumer asks a company not to call, the company may not call, even if there is an established business relationship” In this case there is no relationship and never was. The law goes on to say;” indeed, a company may not call a consumer - regardless of whether the consumer's number is on the registry - if the consumer has asked to be put on the company's own do not call list.” The FTC says although the law is aimed at Telemarketers, it holds true for any company who hasn’t had a relationship with you due to the fact the calls aren’t solicited, which makes the calls, de facto Telemarketing calls. To end all calls, even if you are a debtor, you must do the following: send a cease and desist letter by registered mail, then contact your state attorney general"s office, the FTC & the FCC as well as the Do Not Call Registry. If the calls continue recontact all the above and also a lawyer. Your state AG office will send out a letter as well as should your lawyer. In your Cease and Desist letter mention the phone number they are calling the acts they violate and also mention you will take them to court. List the court cases against them in Federal court which can be found at justia.com. This company has 11 federal cases against them. They have no legal right to harass you, even if you do have an outstanding debt but you must tell them in writing with a registered letter. Keep a copy of the letter for your files.

    Thank you for this helpful post. I, too, am fielding calls from this company's robo-dialer for someone I never heard of. This company routinely disregards their obligations under law in their business practices. Perhaps it is time for lawsuit number twelve.

    I just successfully got these losers to "remove" my file number by indicating to them forcefully that they were in violation of the law and they needed to remove my phone number from their call list. Call them back and tell them you are neither acknowledging nor denying who you are, you are simply working on behalf of your client to resolve your claim. Regardless of how confrontational they are (which they will be because they are scam artists) be firm. They may hang up on you and if so just call them back. When someone answers simply again firmly state that you are calling on behalf of your client and demand that your phone number be removed from their call list. After only two calls, the individual asked for my file number an then indicated that the file had been removed from their database.

    Best of luck as you deal with BEATING BACK THESE HYENAS WITH THE LAW ON YOUR SIDE. Be relentless. You will win.
