Today I was contacted at home and at my father's home where I have not lived for 19 years by Mr. Louis Petrone (possibly Patron).

At my current home he left a message saying that he was investigating me for bad checks and would get the police involved. He left the same message at my father's home.

Am I wrong or is it illegal for these bottom feeders to leave messages detailing why they are calling on answering machines or with people who are not me personally.

Curious to see what this was about I called Mr. Petrone's number and all it says is "this is Louis Petrone, investigator. Leave your name, phone number and time of day to reach you and I will call you at my convenience." I left nothing.

Then I got a call from Makari (maybe Markari Law Firm), from Mr. Jeffrey Page telling me to call him back. So I called that number. I swear it was Mr. Petrone playing operator at this law firm. He called me honey and baby no less than 3 times in about 2 sentences. I told him he would address me by my name as I didn't know him and those forms of address were completely unprofessional. He laughed and said "Well I see you're having a bad day." I hung up on him then.

Has anyone had dealings with this person or people or Markari Law Firm?




As an update, I reported Mr. Petrone, Mr. Page and Markari Law Firm to the FTC and the FCC. Having read through the FDCPA document I discovered that my rights were violated when Mr. Petrone told 2 other individuals why he was looking for me.

I hate that these bottom feeders can harass innocent people and terrify their families. My poor mother was so upset she couldn't sleep before her overnight shift. I will pursue a personal lawsuit if these people continue the harassment. I am done. I made mistakes with my credit, but I am being very careful and paying off legitimate debt as I can and I will NOT be bullied ever again.

It's been an interesting journey with Mr. Petrone and as I now find out the Mark Carey Law Firm. It is amazing to me that Mr. Petrone who works for this firm was unable to give my mother the correct spelling of his place of employment while he was terrifying her with threats of sending me to jail.

Please be aware and watch out for this law firm:
Mark Carey Law Firm
6390 Main St Ste 160
Williamsville, NY 14221
Phone Number: 1-800-649-8440

Mr. Louis Petrone
Phone Number: 1-716-803-8300
(He will not provide any information about his address and his phone number will display as "Unknown Caller" on your caller ID)

~after doing a google search I have discovered Mr. Carey's law firm has been in trouble for unfair debt collection practices in New York. I have now also filed a complaint with the Vermont State Attorney General's Office. I will be updating my FTC and FCC complaints with the proper spelling and address for Mr. Carey's law firm.

I spoke with a Ms Hall today from Carey Law Firm; she stated that Mr Petrone was escorted out of the office and fired for his way he handled calls to people; she said he is not an investigater or officer; she said that he was fired do to the complaints that they have been getting...Due to the fact that they have been reported to AG and FTC...Will see what will come of it..

I was told Mr. Petrone had been fired as well. Or more to the point I read it in Mr. Carey's handwritten response to the complaint i filed with the NY Attorney General. Mr. Carey maintained that the debt was valid, but would consider dropping it since my rights were violated. What a JERK.Seriously, what kind of lawyer handwrites responses??

My dad was a lawyer and he typed EVERYTHING...and would certainly have typed something as important as this.

I think Mr Carey is the same person as Louise Petrone. I think he is the one making the calls and using different numbers and names..After I spoke to Ms Hall and told her i would not disscusse or give any money over the phone. Until I received info from them showing the debt valdation. She said she would fax and email the info and I still havent recieve anything from them... I also told her that I reported Mr Petrone and the law firm to the federal trade commission and the attorney generals office....

I know the Mark Carey you are all speaking about. Louis Petrone and him ARE infact two different people. As for the hand-written letter, his hand must be hurting him dearly if he is apologizing for all the complaints they have received! Go get him!

In addition to reporting the Mark Carey "Law Firm" to the usual agencies (FCC, AG etc) Also report them to the NY State Bar Association:
NEW YORK STATE BAR ASSOCIATION,
ONE ELK STREET, ALBANY, NY 12207
PH: 516 463-3200 FX: 516 487-5517
Website: http://www.nysba.org/



Dont talk to these people, if they catch you on the phone tell them to "Cease and Desist" and report them to all the agencies each time they contact you after that.

They arent good enough to be even "bottom feeders" how they can live with themselves for what they do to people is beyond me. They are the ones committing fraud, not us. They violate so many laws including the Fair Debt collections. They think they are above the law and its up to us to keep them below the dirt. I have had it with people like them and I am going to research & see what more we can do, maybe its time Washington got more involved in putting an end to them. I know this can take a long time, but I am at the point where I know something more has to be done about them.....
