Like others, I receive calls from Gila Corp/Municipal Services Bureau every day. It pertains to an unpaid traffic ticket from California 7 years ago that my father, who is in a nursing home, never paid. Call blocking does not work. I called and told them that my father was in a nursing home in New York and they wanted his number! I said you have to be kidding right? I told them I am living in his house and have nothing to do with the ticket but the calls keep coming. My carrier (Verizon) says they have developed a way to sidestep call blocking.They suggested a complaint to the FCC. If anything works I would appreciate it.

I REFUSE to answer any calls from this # because they call my home at least 5+X's per day EVERY SINGLE DAY.... that's right 7 days a week! I don't know who they are, I've never heard of them, Their name shows up on my caller ID, sometimes they will call either right back or within 5 minutes sometimes or at least every 30minutes to an hour... I want to know how to have it stopped for GOOD! I don't even think its ME their trying to get a hold of. I believe I spoke with them when I first got my house # because the phone company we go through "recycles" their #'s and I explained to them that they were looking for the wrong person and that my number was "recycled" and that they were probably trying to get a hold of an old user of this # and they STILL call me. It shows up on my caller ID as "GILA CORP".

Two automated calls from them. One yesterday (caller ID said "Gila Corp"), one today (caller ID said "unknown"). Both calls came from the same number - which was not blocked on my caller ID. Said "this is not a sales call or solicitation. Please call us back, regarding an important court matter." Gave an 800# and hours of availability. First of all: COURTS DO NOT CALL ANYONE ABOUT ANYTHING - EVER. Nor would an attorney ever call, out-of-the-blue, on any matter. They write letters - and/or contact YOUR attorney, if you have one. Secondly: IF I would be stupid enough to call the 800#, they would then have identifying information about me, that they are not entitled to have - such as a correct name and phone number. - and I would STILL not know who THEY are, or what they want with me. NO LEGITIMATE COLLECTION AGENCY DOES THIS! These people are "fishing." They are using fear tactics to trick people into giving up personal information, to suit their own BOGUS, FRAUDULENT and NEFARIOUS purposes! DON'T take the calls, DON'T call them back, DON'T fall for it!

They call my mother at least 10 times each day everyday after my grandfather's death. He was a military pilot so I think this might be the cause of this. I don't believe my grandparents have ever had a 'unresolved court matter' in Austin, TX so this must be a scam for "TICKET COLLECTION" from 1987... The law in Austin, TX is that if a ticket is pending in traffic court for over 4 years it is void. So this is definitely a scam. BLOCK THIS NUMBER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE

These people or should I say machine call us daily. They call my neighbor friend too.This place is in Texas and I am in Oregon this robot call says we are not soliciting this is an important court matter. This is a SCAM we have no court matters or collections due. I contacted the county and municipal courts here and they assured me we owe them nothing and if so we would receive a notice BY MAIL ONLY first. Then it would be a summons to appear and after that a warrant. Bottom line if you don't pay your fines they will arrest you , not call you on a daily basis. FRAUDULENT ATTEMPT TO COLLECT A FAKE DEBT. DO NOT PAY CONTACT YOUR ATTORNEY GENERAL THE FCC AND THE BBB. Oh yea they somehow keep getting by my android call blocker too even they are blacklisted this Definitely means they are up to no good

This Gila corp. continuously calls my home day and night. When they don't get an answer then a randy rome calls and says he is from a collection agency but will not send paperwork and I think he is a scam. I am done with this company calling me. They will not send anything to me and do not sound lagitimate. I have a bad feeling about them and I tell them not to call and they argue with me. Please make them stop.

Watch for ROBOCALLS calls from numbers in Area code 512. I am intending to sue them for compensation in guideline with FTC .. what was it 10,000 dollars for each received call .. and I receive from them at least 2 calls a day for last 90 days .. Office City: Austin Office State: TX Municipal Services Bureau, a "private corporation specializing in court collections" based out of Austin, Texas. They are a legitimate collection agency, but their robo calls are not legitimate. It is Bureau of Municipal Services which attempt to collect the money for alleged traffic violations right or wrong! In addition I am going to sue the State for selling private, unlisted and personal confidential information with out my authorization and consent permission. I already received from them about 100 robocalls .. so I am counting the money! Other numbers they are using are: 512 - 532-8633 512 - 623-6795 512 - 498 - 1028 512 - 498 -1020 512 - 532-8633 512 - 906 3892 So block their numbers and enjoy peaceful life. They can kiss my butt!

This company appears to be a legitimate collection agency that bought a bunch of old debt. They called me about a parking ticket from 17 years ago. They made the same implied threats that other people have mentioned here: "this is a legitimate debt and could end up with a warrant for your arrest if gone unpaid". The place and time match where I lived, but I don't remember a parking ticket. They had enough info that it could be legit. Either way, it's laughable that anyone would enforce this. Keep in mind -- I can legally send you a letter claiming that you owe me $100. These people bought a bunch of debt that other collection agencies couldn't clear and probably got it pennies on the dollar. This means that if I pay the $100, they probably make $95 profit just for clearing the debt. Just because someone claims you owe doesn't make it so. Whether or not this is legitimate, I'm not I'm debt to this third party. If I had a debt, it would be through the original municipality that issued the ticket. In the past 5 years, I've gone through some high government security checks for work. The only way this collection agency found me is because of the public records from these background investigations. If I was in any real trouble (warrant for my arrest), I'd not be working where I currently am. Short answer-- it's likely not a scam. Rather, it's likely a legitimate debt from bottom-feeders that don't deserve to be paid for buying old non-enforceable debt from people who gave up and already wrote it off. Looks like blocking these 3 numbers will do the trick : 5129063892 , 5124981028 , 5124981015

They had ;left message on our phone. Checked this number to find out what they are. They did not leave any specifics. It was just that I needed to call the 800 number. I will not call them absolutely. I am more than certain this is a bogus outfit. Calling them back gives them credibility and there is no way I or anyone should do that. I wish there was a way we could put them on no call back list. But since we can do that no longer, I need to find a way to stop this nonsense.

They call my mom about 20 times a day. They told her that I had a Ticket in Kansas. Then my friend in Kansas sends me this letter from them that I have in 2 tickets in the City of Hardesty Oklahoma and t his "COULD" result into a warrant for my arrest. Funny thing is I wouldn't have been hard to find since I got arrested there 2006 and was in county jail in texas county,Oklahoma. 2007 they had plenty of time to find me i was in OK D.O.C. You think they would have every let me leave that stupid county without charging me with every count the could possibly hang on me? Is it a warrant or not? Okla. state law says if a trafffic ticket warrant has set on there desk for more than 3 yrs it's null and void. Just send your payment by CREDIT CARD.NO THANKS! I've called Hardesty City Hall. I always get the janitor the clerk is never there . How odd?

Same as everyone else... numerous calls day and night from this number identified as Gila Corp. The caller left a message to call 1-800-295-0851 regarding "an outstanding matter" and then gave their hours of operation. Who funds these creeps?

just got a call from this number for the first time re:may have an outstanding court matter, they do not say who they are looking for, just says to call back to 1-800-295-0851. No way will I call them back. They are located in Austin, TX. If they can't say who they are looking for, definitely will not CALL BACK!!!!! I have never been in Austin Texas. Definitely a scam.
