Tammy said: After they called and asked to speak with my husband on my cell, told them it wasn't his number and not to call me back again that I would have him call them, the "friendly" lady said they would just call me back until the got him, I started to tell her to not call my number again and she hung up on me. I just called them back at 256-447-3701 and spoke with "Anna no last name" told her I was making note of the call and would call the AL AG's office and file a complaint with the FTC under the fair debt collections practices act and sue them if they do not stop calling my phone. Of course she said she would make note of it, if they call again I will definitely follow up!

collection agency, was looking for the previous owner of the phone number on my corporate-account work phone. Called the above front-end number and spoke to an unexpectedly friendly rep who promised to remove the number.
anonymous said: Received calls for 2 days now. SCAM SCAM SCAM!! They stated the last 4 digits of a credit card (which apparently they did not know had been cancelled quite some time ago) and are offering a FREE $120 gas card because of my great customer status! Calls are from female with Eastern India accent and requests confirmation of information so they are sure to send my card to the right place. If they were REALLY with a credit card company, they would have my information anyway and it would be much more economical and easier for them to just give me the credit on my card. This is just a scam and needs to be stopped.
Glorise said: Bottom feeder collection agency that buy old debts and try to collect on them paid off or not.They will harass and call each and every day. Write letter to attorney general of the state they call from and report them. If they don,t stop calling tell them to prove the debt that you owe or prove you are the person their looking for.
Sounds like a custody dispute turned ugly to me. I know people's hearts are in the right place, but why would you forward this type of thing without checking it out. If she was really missing, news of it would be at the top of a Google search of her name or the phone number in the message. Not to mention stuff like this goes around forever, so you have no idea how old it is. The article above was published last November.
