Ok so now my brother calls me and says i have a message on HIS answering machine. So he lets me listen to it.... first of all they ask for me using my maiden name! I have been married for 23 years!! WTH? And secondly, i do NOT have any outstanding bills.... only negative i've ever had was the lovely CACH!
So what do i do now? Call them? Umm... never mind, i'm NOT calling them!!!!
Let them find me if they dare! *evil laff*
Anyone hear of them? I did a search here but all i came up with is they're a CA in Houston, TX.... not much info on them.
Who is United Recovery Systems and Collections?
SIGHS,
Ang




Received a letter from URS saying I owe 700 on a dell account from five years ago. Have not purchased anything on my dell account in five years, have never received a bill, what gives?

This company started calling my parents as well, who I have not lived w/ in 8 years. They used my married name, I'm divorced. Left 4 messages in 1 day, you could not understand in the messages WHERE they were calling from, I had to reverse phone search. They are trying to collect on me for Citi Bank for sure, I am declaring bankruptcy, so they can talk to my lawyer, not me.

Why not just give them your bankruptcy information. It is sad that they have to skip trace to find you and they wouldn't have to if you didn't have something to hide. Now someone who has a not so fun job that gets cursed at every day get to waste time on people like you that aren't actually worth the effort.

Allot of other comments I found to be silly as well. Many just because they don't recognize that they have debt think they're best option is to let collectors call without a response. Hypothetically what if there was an identity theft. Wouldn't the collection company be able to verify the information and compare to the file they have and determine if a fraudulent account exists. Yes there could be a case of mistaken identity due to skip tracing but it is better to call and realize that there was a mistake than to not call and have bad credit in these cases.

This is really silly, unless you work for the company than you do not know what you are talking about, there is a funny saying that you know when someone is a true debtor when they hide from collection agencies. As posted by Anonymous , they are very correct. The person on the debt collector position who is calling you.. is doing their job. there is a lot of time and stress in a collectors job. They must follow FDCPA, listen to others problems, try to be a problem solver, and then get screamed and cursed at by a random person who is upset because they called them asking them to pay their bills. URS is a good company and has a pretty good reputation, They do not buy debt, the are the collection agency hired by the client "COMANY YOU OWE MONEY TO", they get paid a salary for what they do, and do not benefit for wether or not you pay your bill. No point on being rude to someone who has to deal with people who scream at them all day.. for only doing their job.

I think it's so funny that people can point the finger and call someone a deadbeat for not paying their bills--in a span of a week, I lost my job due to illness and my husband left me-so I lost all sources of income. I was clearing almost 80K and paid ALL My bills every month, most of the time in full. Now, I make 15K a year and can't even keep up with the necessities of life let alone the credit card debt. My ex is refusing to pay for anything, so I am left holding the bag. How does that make me a deadbeat? Oh, and I have also spoken with the CC companies DIRECTLY when this happened---and they refused to make any arrangements.

Just remember that when the big companies suddenly couldn't pay THEIR bills THEY got a bailout from the government....seems to me these companies are the deadbeats with a hand out for money. It is total BS...where is the average citizen's bailout when they get hit with hard times?

Not to mention that credit card companies make a habit of waiting for someone to charge up a lot and THEN raise the interest rate through the roof FOR NO REASON and despite the fact people used the card at the old rate, suddenly they have to pay the high rate after the fact. AND this is just one low down tactic these companies use.....sure, you can whine and say that if they didn't like the terms they should not have gotten the card that they knew the terms could change at any time, but most people didn't think the card would suddenly screw them that badly and for no reason at all....

Oh and most times people duck the collectors because these collectors abuse them over the phone. If they were polite, many people would be polite back.
