Have a whistle by the phone and a recorder...If they don't let you talk then blow as hard as you can..let them know they are being recorded as well. That's called harassment and they can be fined up to 1k..[quote=bill chappell]bill baker very threatening even said he would constantly call work home would not even listen to what i had to say phone #1-800-220-0605 x 2531[/quote]

THE FAIR DEBT COLLECTION PRACTICES ACT Violations
1. Section 805b - Collection Caller (Randy Dixon) misrepresented himself as a legal authority when he contacted me on Tuesday, July 19, 2005 at 8:15 am Eastern Standard Time. Furthermore, on Wednesday, July 20, 2005 at 8:15 am EST he contacted my tenant at a business property I own in Florida; therefore, by ACS' representative contract of my tenant ACS have probed into my personnel information from government records. I'm a third party contact that I have no idea how ACS got my phone number and how they think the above phone number is associated with this consumer/person that ACS is looking for. The above phone number is on the National-Do-Not-Call list. The consumer ACS is looking for is not a party to the billing address of the my phone number nor is the consumer a party on the billing address of the Florida phone number ACS contacted

2. Section 804(1)- Mr. Dixon violated this by implying he was calling about a legal matter; therefore, implying he was an authority in the legal sense

3.Section 804(3)- Caller Randy Dixon contacted my tenant at a business property I own in Florida; therefore, by probing into my personnel information from government records is in direct vitiation of my privacy information. I'm the third party person not the consumer/person ACS is looking for.

4.Section 807 (3),(7)- Mr. Dixon violated this by stating he was calling about a legal matter; therefore, implying he was an authority in the legal sense. ACS has once again falsely represented or implicated that the consumer had committed some crime in order to disgrace them.

Finally, ACS' representative has falsely misrepresented himself as a legal authority and has probed into my personnel information from government records by contacting my tenant of a business property.

This company contacted my neighbors to try to get my son, whom no longer lives with us to call them back. I am really embarrassed about this whole thing. I feel they should never bother a neighbor and feel it is a very deceptive practice!

Got a call from Academy the other day, very rude woman, said she was on her way to serve me papers, and I was being sued unless I come up with the money I owed right now! Then she called back and wanted my boss. Thankfully he is very supportive and told her she couldn't call me here at work. She called back! Today I got another one from another woman saying she would be serving me papers today, and there 's nothing I can do about it now. She was very threatening and told me that I would probably end up paying twice as much as I actually owe because I would have to pay THEIR court costs as well as mine! I'm so glad I found these comments! I was on the edge of panic!

they have been constantly leaving messages for someone else. i have had this number for a year and
have called all three people that keep leaving rude messages on my machine.
let them know i never heard of this person and that this number is mine.
but they still continue to call and leave messages
they would not give their adress or transfer me to a manager or supervisor for complaint.
they get rude and abusive.
i definately will be calling to get a complaint form from financial institutions in las vegs

You can fill out the online complaint form of the FTC, BBB and state attorney general office and request for immediate action. Make sure that you have your proof intact which might be needed later.

You can also record all the telephonic conversation and inform them that you are going to take legal action against them.

I agree with all the notes above.This company is a farce and they dont comply with the code of ethics that they say they do.
They are only a collection agency and they act like their the FBI or something.
I am sick of them harrassing me at work, home and cell.
I constantly get called from kim tanner at x4368. I hate that ****. Ive told her before i am dealing with someone else and she keeps harrasing me.

we should all get together and have these people stopped.
My husband told her and her supervisor who is just as rude to stick it.

Or we should call them and leave them rude messages on their voicmails too.

I called their bluff and now I call them and you should too. I call random ext. ##'s every free minute I have in between classes (sometimes 50-75 times a day ). Remember... they record every thing so just remain silent...I have been doing this everyday since June...some may say it's childish or even a waste of time, but hey, it helps me sleep better at night.

The Fair Credit Act, I think, states that a collections agency has no rights to collect in a state that they do not have a brick and mortar office in. That means if you live in Colorado and this company's office is in Nevada, they are conducting business illeagally. A class action lawsuit may be filed against them. You can also write a letter to them certified and simply state "Do not call me again". They have the right to try and contact you by phone 1 more time, which is also illeagal, after that they are on the list for harrassment
