For the past few weeks I have been receiving calls from [protected]. An app I have on my phone said this was a number which received numerous complaints as spam, so I had been ignoring the calls. Today, 3/7/16 I answered the call. A woman on the line proceeded to tell me that she was calling in reference to a claim. She gave the last four digits of my social and named an address I have not lived at in 5 years. She mentioned money I had allegedly borrowed for $300.00 in 2012 and another for $400 the same year. I have not borrowed from any one. When I told the woman that I haven”t borrowed money and would like for her to send me information about these debts in the mail so that I could specifically see her allegations, she became angry and said that they had been sending me notices at my old address and that I am responsible for updating my address. She asked me how I intended to take care of the debt today and I told her I had no intention of paying for something I knew nothing about. She then said, I will see you in court and hung up. I called the number back and a different woman answered. I asked for the name and address of her company and in a heavy accent which I could not understand, I asked her to spell the company. She spelled First Recovery Associates. I asked for the address. She said for “security purposes I cannot give out our address”. She then hung up. My mother, who is 87 years old informed me two days ago that she was receiving phone calls in which they say, “this call is for (my name), if you are not (my name), please hang up.” I know this is a scam. It is the most annoying thing to have to deal with. What are the options to stop this kind of predatory activity against innocent people. I hate to think how many become intimidated and give in to their bullying. This is the same message I heard today when I picked up to answer. I then was asked to press “9” for a representative.
