I wanted some advice on how to handle these calls. I know it is a scam and have just not been answering the phone or returning their calls, but today it got out of hand. They called my cell 4 times in a row before finally leaving a message and then called my work number. I answered the phone, not giving my name, and told them that I wasn't here today. I would actually like to file complaints against them, but not sure where to do that as the numbers they call from are different numbers. They haven't threatened me - only saying that if I or my attorney did not return the call, they would not be responsible for what unfolded. Whatever is going to unfold has been going on for almost 1 month now and I'm still here and not in jail. Any advice on where to file complaints or should I just continue to ignore them?

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the pay off amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
