Ms B said: as always, another one of *Portfolio Recovery Associates* many phone numbers, they're calling & asking for the *wrong* person . . .
beware! a call from 877-803-0008 (or any of PRA's other phone numbers) is a debt collection scam ~ they are *phishing* for info --AND-- using *scare tactics* to get money from you . . . . .give - them - nothing.
crseeley said: This number is listed as having charged $282.90 from my checking account. There are many people with similar problems on their credit cards too. They are listed as Benefit Transaction on my statement. I don't know who they are, and this has to be a scam. I've advised my bank to not accept the charges in the future.
Anon said: i have been annoyed by this telemarketer for several days now. So with caaler ID I can call them back, and I do several times a day.
I even call them through the night until 2 or 3am. Sometimes I get their machine but other times they answer and I can tell I woke them up. I have blocked caller so they can only speculate as to whom is harrassing them. Don't think this method has deterred their phone calling but I do get a bit of satisfaction. Everyone who has been inconvenienced by these low life scam artists should start calling them after midnight. See how they like it!
annoyed said: I get calls frequently, but answer half the time because even when I answer they just hang up. They wont say where they get your number one, and they are selling services but wont explain what services? REALLY....Sounds like a scam to me. I have called them back and its a very nondescript simple message leaving system. I have told their people and their machine to remove my number. Its been a very agitating time. This is the most unprofessional set of idiots I have had the pleasure of speaking with.

I do not condone the use of rainforest materials for commercial use.
I do not play games.
It is despicable that a company would keep doing this.
Utah~ same sh*t different day.
