||The lady had an answer for everything. She has definitely done her homework. This for sure has taught me a lesson. The general public (myself included) are not educated on what our rights are and the rules for collection. In this experience, I have researched and learned many things. Glad I know them know, it won't ever happen to me again. I have already changed my bank account, etc. The lady (Toni Warren) called my phone nonstop for days in a row leaving me ugly voicemails and the last one she advised me I better have my attorney contact her.
||Who this might be?
||same here i got an e-mail with the exact same thing from a steve.
||Worst company EVER. If you have a financial emergency and need a payday advance, look for another company. We've been dealing with them known as American Credit Line and our loan was supposed to be put into our account over a week ago. We call every day and continue to get hung up on. I've filed a complaint with the BBB, our atty general and ripoff report. Look elsewhere, hopefully our experience with them will urge you to find another source.http:www.ripoffreport.comamerican-credit-lineloansinternet-internet-fa.htm

The message went so quickly, it was hard to get the entire message, but part gave the company name or website (which unless I had a pencil right that min I couldn't get the whole thing) saying in order to retrieve the $ I had to go to that site. It thanked me saying they were from AT&T. I checked with AT&T and they said it was a scam (OF COURSE). It really went so quickly it was impossible to even understand the whole thing. The number was --

Nice of them to call during my lunch rush.When they call, ask them to verify your account number. They tell you its not needed because of disconnect. That's your cue its a scam.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), which prohibits debt collectors from using abusive, unfair, or deceptive practices to collect from you.Under the FDCPA, a debt collector is someone who regularly collects debts owed to others. This includes collection agencies, lawyers who collect debts on a regular basis, and companies that buy delinquent debts and then try to collect them.Here are some questions and answers about your rights under the Act.What types of debts are covered?The Act covers personal, family, and household debts, including money you owe on a personal credit card account, an auto loan, a medical bill, and your mortgage. The FDCPA doesn’t cover debts you incurred to run a business.Can a debt collector contact me any time or any place? No. A debt collector may not contact you at inconvenient times or places, such as before in the morning or after at night, unless you agree to it. And collectors may not contact you at work if they’re told (orally or in writing) that you’re not allowed to get calls there.How can I stop a debt collector from contacting me?If a collector contacts you about a debt, you may want to talk to them at least once to see if you can resolve the matter – even if you don’t think you owe the debt, can’t repay it immediately, or think that the collector is contacting you by mistake. If you decide after contacting the debt collector that you don’t want the collector to contact you again, tell the collector – in writing – to stop contacting you. Here’s how to do that:Make a copy of your letter. Send the original by certified mail, and pay for a “return receipt” so you’ll be able to document what the collector received. Once the collector receives your letter, they may not contact you again, with two exceptions: a collector can contact you to tell you there will be no further contact or to let you know that they or the creditor intend to take a specific action, like filing a lawsuit. Sending such a letter to a debt collector you owe money to does not get rid of the debt, but it should stop the contact. The creditor or the debt collector still can sue you to collect the debt. Can a debt collector contact anyone else about my debt?If an attorney is representing you about the debt, the debt collector must contact the attorney, rather than you. If you don’t have an attorney, a collector may contact other people – but only to find out your address, your home phone number, and where you work. Collectors usually are prohibited from contacting third parties more than once. Other than to obtain this location information about you, a debt collector generally is not permitted to discuss your debt with anyone other than you, your spouse, or your attorney.What does the debt collector have to tell me about the debt? Every collector must send you a written “validation notice” telling you how much money you owe within five days after they first contact you. This notice also must include the name of the creditor to whom you owe the money, and how to proceed if you don’t think you owe the money. Can a debt collector keep contacting me if I don’t think I owe any money? If you send the debt collector a letter stating that you don’t owe any or all of the money, or asking for verification of the debt, that collector must stop contacting you. You have to send that letter within days after you receive the validation notice. But a collector can begin contacting you again if it sends you written verification of the debt, like a copy of a bill for the amount you owe.What practices are off limits for debt collectors?Harassment. Debt collectors may not harass, oppress, or abuse you or any third parties they contact. For example, they may not: use threats of violence or harm; publish a list of names of people who refuse to pay their debts (but they can give this information to the credit reporting companies); use obscene or profane language; or repeatedly use the phone to annoy someone. False statements. Debt collectors may not lie when they are trying to collect a debt. For example, they may not: falsely claim that they are attorneys or government representatives; falsely claim that you have committed a crime; falsely represent that they operate or work for a credit reporting company; misrepresent the amount you owe; indicate that papers they send you are legal forms if they aren’t; or indicate that papers they send to you aren’t legal forms if they are. Debt collectors also are prohibited from saying that: you will be arrested if you don’t pay your debt; they’ll seize, garnish, attach, or sell your property or wages unless they are permitted by law to take the action and intend to do so; or legal action will be taken against you, if doing so would be illegal or if they don’t intend to take the action. Debt collectors may not: give false credit information about you to anyone, including a credit reporting company; send you anything that looks like an official document from a court or government agency if it isn’t; or use a false company name. Unfair practices. Debt collectors may not engage in unfair practices when they try to collect a debt. For example, they may not: try to collect any interest, fee, or other charge on top of the amount you owe unless the contract that created your debt – or your state law – allows the charge; deposit a post-dated check early; take or threaten to take your property unless it can be done legally; or contact you by postcard. Can I control which debts my payments apply to? Yes. If a debt collector is trying to collect more than one debt from you, the collector must apply any payment you make to the debt you select. Equally important, a debt collector may not apply a payment to a debt you don’t think you owe.Can a debt collector garnish my bank account or my wages?If you don’t pay a debt, a creditor or its debt collector generally can sue you to collect. If they win, the court will enter a judgment against you. The judgment states the amount of money you owe, and allows the creditor or collector to get a garnishment order against you, directing a third party, like your bank, to turn over funds from your account to pay the debt. Wage garnishment happens when your employer withholds part of your compensation to pay your debts. Your wages usually can be garnished only as the result of a court order. Don’t ignore a lawsuit summons. If you do, you lose the opportunity to fight a wage garnishment.Can federal benefits be garnished?Many federal benefits are exempt from garnishment, including: Social Security Benefits Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Benefits Veterans’ Benefits Civil Service and Federal Retirement and Disability Benefits Service Members’ Pay Military Annuities and Survivors’ Benefits Student Assistance Railroad Retirement Benefits Merchant Seamen Wages Longshoremen’s and Harbor Workers’ Death and Disability Benefits Foreign Service Retirement and Disability Benefits Compensation for Injury, Death, or Detention of Employees of U.S. Contractors Outside the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency Federal Disaster Assistance But federal benefits may be garnished under certain circumstances, including to pay delinquent taxes, alimony, child support, or student loans. Do I have any recourse if I think a debt collector has violated the law? You have the right to sue a collector in a state or federal court within one year from the date the law was violated. If you win, the judge can require the collector to pay you for any damages you can prove you suffered because of the illegal collection practices, like lost wages and medical bills. The judge can require the debt collector to pay you up to $,, even if you can’t prove that you suffered actual damages. You also can be reimbursed for your attorney’s fees and court costs. A group of people also may sue a debt collector as part of a class action lawsuit and recover money for damages up to $,, or one percent of the collector’s net worth, whichever amount is lower. Even if a debt collector violates the FDCPA in trying to collect a debt, the debt does not go away if you owe it.What should I do if a debt collector sues me?If a debt collector files a lawsuit against you to collect a debt, respond to the lawsuit, either personally or through your lawyer, by the date specified in the court papers to preserve your rights. Where do I report a debt collector for an alleged violation?Report any problems you have with a debt collector to your state Attorney General’s office (www.naag.org) and the Federal Trade Commission (www.ftc.gov). Many states have their own debt collection laws that are different from the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Your Attorney General’s office can help you determine your rights under your state’s law.For More InformationTo learn more about debt collection and other credit-related issues, visit www.ftc.govcredit and MyMoney.gov, the U.S. government’s portal to financial education.The FTC works for the consumer to prevent fraudulent, deceptive, and unfair business practices in the marketplace and to provide information to help consumers spot, stop, and avoid them.

||We get a daily recorded message that claims to be from a debt collector. They don't mention which collection agency they represent or what the debt is about. They say the message is for a relative of mine John Doe, and everyone else except him should leave the room immediately, before they go on with the message. The message ends by saying John Doe should call this number --If we pick up the phone, the message changes and says Hang up if you are not John Doe. There is never a person on the line, always a recording.John Doe doesn't live with me, never has, never will. I don't know his phone number and I wouldn't give it out even if I did. He is mentally challenged and no one in their right mind would lend him money.I would like to send a cease and desist letter to whoever is making these calls, but I guess that is why they hide behind anonymous numbers and don't say who they are.
||Obvious phishing scam having you enter SS# digit, etc. at http:www.iliveatt.com
||Talked to them again today. I returned a call from Randy of inland empire industrial. He said he wanted to get my invoice settled. I let him know as with the last person I talked to just issue call tags and I would be happy to send all back. He informed me that at the time of the last call when I requested call tags I was already outside of the days I was required to make such a request in. As such since I am still not willing to pay he is just going to report to the credit bureau and start litigation against me. He promised to have the litigation papers to me in wks. I told him the last call told me that too but I have yet to see them. I said they hadn't called me to verify my receipt and quality as they had promised. He said I probably didn't answer my phone as they have been repetitively trying to get ahold of me and I have not answered. His tone changed when I told him I had answered all of their robo-calls including one that said to hold for a representative in which I held for hours and no rep ever picked up. He finally ended the call by saying they are used to buyers not paying and know how to handle the situation. When I called the lady who answered made me feel really weird by asking me for my zip code, name, and if there was a business name before I could talk to Randy. Made me wonder if there was really a Randy and they needed to get their story straight to direct me to the right person.
||this lady just told me the exact same thing.....
||automatic voice told me to hold on that they have a call from this number
||Yes...this is for the H&R Tax Course...Not a scam....I am taking the course now.

||Scam alert.. These folks just took an older man for over $. Said they were from Visa and that he had won a cruise. Could not take his Visa but could take a MasterCard....so sad when people play on innocent, albeit naive older persons...
||Do not fall for this. It is obviously a scam.
||I received nine(.) calls from this number, to my cell, in the last three days. I never answered as I usually don't answer toll free numbers or those out of area with no ID. I called the number back once but it just rang and rang, at least a dozen times, and no answer or message. I've registered my phone three times over the last two years on the 'do no call list.' What good is it? Does anyone know who's making these calls?
||this number calling me from At&T and abusing me.I know they are fake and nothing from real AT&T because they have Indian accent.
