Asked who was calling me, said it was Carlos, from Portfolio Recovery. This company has been calling me for years. I DO NOT KNOW THIS PERSON nor do I care to keep receiving calls for him
They come as Sunrocket DID. I called back the number and it's PoÂrtfolio Recovery Associates, Inc., They try to use different names so you would pick up, but I never pick up a number I don't know, and they never leave a message. I notice a few times they come up with the same area code I live in. What a pain in the butt.....GIVE UP and GET A LIFE.
Called me 11 times yesterday, Have no clue who they are or what they want. They never leave a a message.. Quit Harrading me already
This is Portfolio Recovery, a collection Agency specializing in "zombie debt" or debt that has long expired. If they can get you to admit that you owe money, they can open a case and start to dun you for the money again. My suggestion: don't answer if you don't know the number, and if you do answer, deny everything. Suggest that you are the new owner of the current phone number, and have no information about the former owner...
Caller ID shows Sunrocket DID yet the call is coming from Portfolio Recovery
I think that's a violation under FDCPA: Â§ 807. False or misleading representations A debt collector may not use any false, deceptive, or misleading representation or means in connection with the collection of any debt. Without limiting the general application of the foregoing, the following conduct is a violation of this section: (14) The use of any business, company, or organization name other than the true name of the debt collectorâ€™s business, company, or organization.

I found this at .... http://nextlevelunlimited.net/blog/portfolio-recovery-associates-debt-collection-scam/ "Portfolio Recovery Associates debt collection scam This collection agency is located in Virginia and known for buying very old worthless debt as far back as the 1990's. So you ask why are they buying debt that is over ten years old? Number one - they could send them to consumers who are convinced they need to pay it. Number two - creative accounting tactics (per Bud Hibbs). Look this word up on wikipedia."at the root of accounting scandals". Here is the mentality of PRA: The debt is expired and legally outside the SOL. The consumer knows this and will not pay PRA. However, what if you have to pay the IRS when PRA sends the consumer a 1099C? Madness!!! Then Portfolio Recovery Associates receives a tax deduction too. Madness!!! Technically this would not be a dunning letter which is normally sent to the consumer. If you EVER receive a 1099C from PRA or any other collection agency, contact a tax professional. Also, send PRA a VOD letter. Asset Acceptance Corporation has been using this scheme for a long time. The "alleged" account needs to be validated regardless of what type of notice you receive. How is PRA going to send a 1099C if they are not able to validate the debt? Contact your Attorney General and report a complaint and fight back."
