Portfolio Recovery Associates LLC called me on 4-9-2015 at 4:22 p.m. phone number they called from shows toll free calle 1-866-428-8102 and they are in Virginia, the woman told me she was from Portfolio Recovery Associates and we have 30 day's from the date she called to respond, These people call several times a day and most of the time I don't answer they have called family members and that is against the law, we are retired & on a very limited income, we are going to dispute the summons because they say the late fees and interest has been removed from balance owed according to the summons, but what it actuals shows is over the credit limit as this is a credit card they bought for pennies on the dollar I told her we have received two summons ( one was left in our door the other came later by mail) & had just spoke to an Attorney about this I didn't tell her anything we spoke about because she hung up on me... To me this is very bad business we cannot come to an agreement when they hang up on you, the only money they can touch is the small pension but beware they can freeze bank accounts and if they do that we as well as anyone reading this would get behind on all of our bill's utilities, mortgage, and many other things we are paying, but we can't make any agreement when the hang up on us.. And I found it interesting when talking to the lawyer that we can record the conversation as long as one party knows about the recording and we are the one party, these companies tell you it may be recorded and we also have the right to record them.. They call a lot and most of the time they say nothing when I answer... I am not in good health and am seeing a Neurosurgeon for my spine next week I do not need this harassment.......

called and didn't leave a message
they call very often even after 8pm. no message is ever left. annoying
they call from many different #'s and never leave a voicemail. I do not answer call from numbers I do not know and don't appreciate them not leaving a message
LOL! Portfolio get with the times. People don't answer calls from a number they don't know. Santa Claus could come across on my caller id and I ain't answering it. Find a new system or just continue to waste your time and money. :D
"pertaining to your current electric bill"
Continues to call to offer my business services.
This company consistently calls... They are rude, unprofessional, and provoking. They continue to call even after I told them several times that I am disabled and not supposed to be treated that way. Today, I will report them to Attorney General and Federal Trade Commission.
CALL THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION AT 1-202-326-2222 OR ON THE WEB GO TO www.ftc.gov THEN THEY WILL STOP. BE SURE TO HAVE THE TEL # THEY CALLED YOU FROM AND THE NAME OF THE PERSON THAT CALLED YOU, DOCUMENT EVERY WORD THEY SAID TO YOU. THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION DOES NOT TOLERATE THIS ABUSE, EVEN IF YOU OWE PORTFOLIO MONEY.
Good advise, I will call and report them to the Federal Trade Commision and the Attorney General.
No non paid debts asked for ss#
These people call me all the time. I have never heard of them and DO NOT owe any money to them. This is telemarketing company trying to embezzle money or get your personal info. Do verify or give any information to them, as they will use it to try and steal your money to the point that they will threaten you with a lawsuit. CALL THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISION AND REPORT THEM AT 1-866-382-4357.
threatening me.. never sends information.. no web site.
It is illegal for any company to call and threaten you, it is the same as if a person on the street was to threaten you. Call the office of the Virgina States Attorneys office at 1-804-786-2042 and tell them you want Portfolio Recovery investigated.
CALL FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION AT 1-202-326-2222. THEY ARE VERY NICE AND WILL HELP YOU STOP PORTFOLIO RECOVERY FROM ABUSING YOU. BE SURE TO GIVE THE NAME OF THE PERSON FROM PORTFOLIO WHO CALLED YOU SO THEY CAN INVESTIGATE THAT PERSON AS WELL.

called at work, was not happy with that.
Tell them to stop. If they continue to harrass you at work. Call FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION AT 1-202-326-2222.
The company is a Det collector and they are very rude even if you are not the right person!
They called my cell looking for someone who I have not idea who that person was. Rude when I explained that they keep calling the my cell.
Just about done! You can optionally provide additional information to help us identify who called you.
