The agents at BCR Collection Agency call my home phone at least daily, sometimes more often.
They are looking for a person, last name, Nyugen.
That is not me.
The home number I have, I have had for 17 years.
I tell them when I answer the phone the person they are looking for does not live here, nor have they ever lived here. I tell them I do not know him.
I ask them each and every time to stop calling my phone number.
They will not stop.
One agent hung up on me.
I have called them back insisting to speak with a manager. They will no connect me to a supervisor.
An agent told me that the numbers they call are loaded into a computer 48 hours in advance and they cannot cease the calls. They have told me they have noted my complaint. They seem to do nothing and continue to call.
What is up with these people?
They are using Sprint cell phone numbers based in Washington, DC
The latest are 1-202-607-2732 and 1-202-607-2733.
There is also a toll-free number.
How do I get them to stop calling my home number?

Unfortunately, I was forced to figure out what my rights were, and on the last conversation, I can not remember what I said, but something to the effect that they are violating such and such a law, and they stopped.
I am figuring out that most collection agencies out there are illegal. If everyone knew what their rights were and took the time to SUE, more collection agencies would be owing rather than collecting.
I am learning that the collection agency law firms, seem to be the only real legit companies that actually follow through with law suits,e tc.. and are interestd in collecting the debt.

Marty Sarim is BRC Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer and can be reached by email at [email]MSarim@BureauofCollection.co m[/email] or by telephone on 1-800-831-7311 ext. 1110
I found this info on the internet and I called many times repetedly (I pressed option #2 about responding to a phone call I recieved from them) and I left a message for Mr. Sarim then called back and whoever answered hung up on me, the next time i was mocked by an employee, then finally I got a person to say that she'd remove my number from thier list.
Just be persistant..... at least it's an 800 number
