Caller: Debt Recovery (905) 366-0206
They called me this morning around 10:15am (Tues Feb 25, 2020) and left a voicemail message asking me to call them back. They identified themselves as "Debt Recovery" I have a few issues with this call:
(1) They called me Lucy (my name is Louise)
(2) I have no outstanding debts that I know of.
(3) I am not going to incur a long-distance charge by calling them back. If they were a reputable company, they would have a 1-800 number.

Called me twice this morning I didn’t answer because I was trying to feed my 2 daughters then received an email saying to go to bmo bank make a payment of $140 because my bank charged them the nsf fee and I had a loan for a vehicle I had 4 years ago which I’m pretty sure insurance paid it off after hitting a deer on my way to work one morning. And I called this guy out on it being a scam and he got all snooty with me about it saying “good for you for doing your research”. Claiming he’s a debt collector and before when I spoke with them apparently they have a docket number and everything for this loan I haven’t paid back and threatened to take legal action

Same complaint - same number from Mississauga. Many calls. - (905) 366-0206
Scam scam don't give any information!!! A couple of calls from this number; didn't answer and don't get messages, so I don't know who they purport to be.
Patricia is absolutely right. Real companies don't behave like the above stories.
Making claims that a company is a scam based on your personal opinion is silly at best.
Research the name with the BBB or any government agency and it shows clearly who they are.
I base things on facts real companies have to be registered and licensed with the government.
I got a message from this number. I suspect it has something to do with Premier Fitness.
Don't be fooled by:
1. Their website. Anyone can produce a website that looks impressive. That is what software was invented for!
2. They know your name and "few" details. Just because they know your name doesn't mean anything! If it was important you would get some sort of certified letter.
3. Their words. Who has heard of a "legal matter" being left by a recording? If people want their money they will call themselves, and NOT leave a generic recording.
4. If you are still not convinced. Then look on the internet. There are lots of people that got a similar message that you just got. Read and learn.
-Don't call them back.
-Don't let them intimitate you.
Back int 2008, I had a membership with Priemier Fitness cancelled. I was recommended by the Bank I deal with to stop payments on any and all transactions with Premier. I however did allow the remaining payments for personal training to be taken out of a credit card until it was paid off. Soon after that, I began to receive "collections" letters from Premier threatening to send me to collections. Each of these "letters/notices" had different amounts and indicated that I had to pay within 10 days (but usually the these letters were received by me 2 days before the 10 day cut-off and the postage date was usually 5 days earlier).Anyways, the last straw came in late 2009 when they sent me a "collections" letter that was signed by a Hinna, who coincidently had an incorrect phone extension...they have 5 digit extension numbers and this one had only 4 numbers). I immediately called Premier head office and blasted them over the phone and never heard anything until today.On August 17th, I received a voice mail regarding a legal matter by NCRR. First thought was that lawyers DO NOT correspond via telephone.I called the number and found out that it was to National Credit Recovery.A VERY young sounding girl answered the phone. I asked her what the issue was and she told me it was regarding Premier Fitness for a collections amount of $387.00I promptly told her that this claim was fraudulent and that Premier cannot send people to any collections agencies as THEY ARE DEEPLY IN COLLECTIONS THEMSELVES! (basis of conflict of interest).This young girl got very angry with me as I told her the facts and SHE hung up on me only to call me back a few minutes later demanding the name of my lawyer (I did tell her that I would be notifiying my lawyer). I gave her my lawyer's information. She then proceeded to tell me that I was acting like a child (HOW IRONIC considering that she didn't seem like she could have even graduated high school yet).By the way, I did notify my lawyer and by LAW the company in question MUST notify you of any delinquincies within 30 days and must offer 60 days to make restitution! Additionally, any claims over 2 years or 24 months (especially when consistent information has been absent) has no legal bearing for collections activity. The company can technically take you to small claims court, but depending upon the amount, it is not very lucrative from a monetary standpoint.I WAS ALSO ADVISED BY MY LAWYER THAT IF NCRR DID REPORT IT TO EQUIFAX OR TRANSCANADA THAT I CAN AND WILL SUE FOR SLANDER OF MY CREDIT RATING!I agree with all previous posts...how come after 3 years, Premier is sending people to "3rd Party Collections". As well, this NCRR is a new collections agency and should have known about Premier's shady reputation and public fraudulent activities from the beginning.I should also note that I did call back to NRCC and spoke to another representative who took all my information and indicated that she would be passing along my legal information to her "manager".
