These guys should be taken care of. If I get an address, I will be happy to visit with the boys Weekly calls with a msg saying i owe money and give a refrence #. I dont owe anything and im not calling back. They dont even have my name It's a collections agency office from what I gathered... I was getting calls from these jokers for a five-year-old $45 ambulance bill which I paid a month after I got the bill. Somebody must have forgotten to post the payment, the hospital can't provide me with records, and I don't keep invoices and CC statements for that far back.
My solution? I moved my phone number over to pennytel.ca, a VOIP provider, and now I can "route" the calls that match certain caller-id to a special voicemailbox with an outgoing message that explains the situation. They have the option of leaving a message, but they haven't done so yet. And now I'm paying less for my phone.
(I am not associated with pennytel.ca, I'm just a customer. There are other VOIP providers who may offer similar service, but if you switch your number like this, beware that you may lose 911 access from your phone.)
Highly doubt it went into collections after one month, get real and admit you're a troll from these bogus agencies. I have received sooo many harassing calls from this number.
At first they said I owe money and to call back and reference an account #
I call back and they ask for my name I gave it to them and he said I don't have your info can I have your address and phone number... NOPE I didn't give it so he hung up.
Then they called back a day later saying they have set a law suit and to have my lawyer contact them.. Me being a young female I got a family lawyer to call and they hung up again...
Michelle Galant from the credit bureau keeps calling me for an account my ex made and I co-signed however they removed his name and left mine. She is rude and demanding. I refuse to pay for someone else's account. I may have co-signed and am willing to pay for half of the account but not his portion. These jokers keep calling about a debt from 9 years ago. It was for $ 323.00 and it was paid about 8 years ago. They are so stupid to think that I intend to pay a debt which was already paid. They keep asking for proof of payment, but who keeps records for 8 years on a bill that was such a small amount. Anyway I enjoy having fun with these jokers. I always tell them that I'm just going to get my credit card to pay the bill and leave them on hold. After about 5 minutes they hang up. Bottom feeders!!!! I don't owe anybody any money yet this company has my name and a private number I never disclose to any one. Just left them a profanity filled message after countless phone messages.
866-751-2167 and 866-965-5731 is a company called Collectcents Inc. operating as Credit Bureau of Canada Collections. They are listed on the Government of Canada Website http://www.ic.gc.ca/app/ccc/srch/nvgt.do?lang ... Id=501&app=sold
Every province has rules that collection agencies must follow. Check with your provincial government. If you are receiving calls and they have the wrong number they must stop if you ask. If you owe money, NEVER acknowledge you owe money. Ask them to sue you. They have to stop calling and take you to court. Most provinces have a two year time limit to sue but the clock can restart from the last time you admit to the debt.
Scammers probably using Facebook or some other social media to gain phone numbers you gps and personal information for the purposes of identity theft I swear at them and hang up. Katherine leave me be and get a life. I was the victim of identity theft in 2006. It was cleared with the credit card company that year and then it was picked up by collection agencies about 2 years ago - *9 years* later. I tried to nicely tell them and they just yelled at me to PAY MY BILLS!
Total lowlife scumbags that can't hold a job that doesn't have back alley thug creds.
I have the same last name as the person they are looking for and its a pre paid cell they are calling, i told them to remove me and quit wasting my minutes and they call again the next day they want my address which they should also have on file if its really me they are looking for as i havent moved in 25 years and when i told them if i owed money mail the letter to me nothing arrived, i dont believe many people own money, i feel as though they just randomly hope someone will pay the bill they are trying to collect so they make their commission on the account. Interesting thing though is i only started getting these phone calls after i purchased a new truck...hmmmm how is it they get my info to begin with...i ponder these things...as they asked for Mrs XXXXX not Shelly XXXXXX and when i asked for the first name they had on file...I was "thats not my name", they ask do you know this person, nope and i have had this phone since cell phones were invited so yet again i question how they got my number ..... but they just about had me pay someone elses bill if i hadnt thought to ask for the first name, so be careful peoples of the world, these scammers are smooth i give them that! This # keeps calling and when u answer they hang up. Called them back credit bureau with wrong information. Collections agency looking for the person that used to own my number. Yes, you can refuse to pay and tell them to sue you. But it does show up on your credit record and it may make your life difficult after that. Collections Bureau of Canada is how they identified themselves to me. It turned out to be for a mistaken collections matter which I had resolved 1 month earlier (the vendor didn't proceed with pre-authorized billing that had been set up for more than 25 years and has always been working properly -- I always pay my vendors promptly). The gentleman I spoke with on the phone reversed the interest charge after seeing the notes on his computer that the matter had been previously resolved.
My overall impression of this agency that called me is that they are helpful, professional, respectful, and efficient.
At our place of business, we have received 2 calls in as many days, no answer when we tried to call it back the first time, now I just hang up.
Scam, so they can move along.
Getting two calls per day for a month or so. I simply block the numbers they use and at best they are directed to leave a message. I never answer a number I don't know. I put all unknown callers into Google, and have never failed to find a source and or NAME. I have a brand new number and they have called several times already with a different name obviously...I phoned them back and told them I am providing my number so they can take it off their list and not contact me again as if they do I will charge their company with harassment...she quickly hung up and I heard a dial tone!!
