Capital One has higher fees than HSBC and is more aggressive about adding them on. ON the other hand, the CO payment system was always more friendly than HSBC. If you try to pay on the due date with HSBC, they ding you for a $15 "rush" fee to avoid the late charge ($25). Capital One was always good accepting payment on the day of the due date.

This is HSBC however HSBC/household bank was in trouble and they sold most of their credit card brands to Capital One, so it is still "HSBC" brand but it is actually now under going transition to Capital One (and now owned by them).  Apparently the will continue to license the HSBC brand name for the cards, and all the numbers will continue to remain the same however.Big new fact though.  I know they are sending out letters to SOME customers informing them of this, but not all.  I think it is mainly affinity programs that are getting the notice. As far as if Capital One is Better or Worse than the "orginal" hsbc/household bank, not sure, but as a rule seems that those brands that advertise a lot or use mass media tend to be lower rated in customer satisfaction, and never heard anything particularly good about Capital One

I didn't & pressed 0 like 2 or 3 times and got a live person and explained to them that I wasn't who they were looking for (and i wasn't cuz my last 4 weren't the ones listed they had) and told them to cease calling me ASAP or I would report them to National Do not call and debtor complaints because I have the logs on caller id as to when and how many times they called me.

I have the misfortune of getting two of these cards to build back my credit after a divorce. The only thing to do is pay them off, close by consumer in formal writing, reqisterd mail return receipt, get on the do not call list and also on the "opt out" list so your information is no longer shared with marketing companies. This does NOT stop them from selling it to bill collectors, and any time you open a bank account or apply for credit you give your phone number, so the credit agencies get your information, and they also have your employer listed on the credit file.

This number calls me several times a day, EVERY day. If I do not answer the phone, their autodialer hangs up on the answering machine, and if I do answer, their people hang up on me. Then the system calls me back in about 4-5 minutes, and we go through the whole process over again. It is getting REALLY old. I counted the calls one day and their were 28. TWENTY god damned EIGHT phone calls in one day! They start at exactly 7:45am every day, and end somewhere around 9:30pm . I find it very annoying, particularly because after years and years of working night shift, I sleep in the early daylight hours and am up all night... so typically I'm about one hour into sleeping and the phone starts ringing.Yes, it is HSBC. And I do actually have a credit card through them. The card is technically late in payments. I lost my job and have little to no income, so I've been sending what I can. It just doesn't add up to what they want. So on the occasions when they do NOT hang up on me, I go through the whole argument with them about the debt, and they try to tell me I need to sell everything I own (which is precisely nothing) and send them the money, or get a friend or relative to take out a loan to pay them, etc. etc. - very unreasonable.So after talking to them, hang up, wait an hour or so, and they will call me back and go through the entire thing over again. One day I talked to their agents FIVE TIMES. All for the same damned account! I even got the same person twice! And when I told them I had already spoken to them they told me they hadn't called me since the week before and that I was obviously mistaken.  o.O  Also, one delusional operator from this company had the nerve to tell me that the economy is presently stronger than it has ever been, and unemployment is at all time lows, and that if I am unemployed it is obviously by my own choosing. Crackhead!After that I just stopped answering. Now I answer the phone for nobody. I let the machine pick up and if it's someone I want to talk to I will call them back. If God himself were to call me, he'd have to leave a message!

Yes, you are all right, it is Household bank, Yes! even if you are not late with your payments and even if you don't have a CC with them. First, if you have a card with them and are not late, they want to set up a payment, to help them with the cash flow.( So many people have defaulted) If you are late, I am soooo sorry they will not stop, from early in the morning till late at night and yes on sunday, even very early morning. If you don't have a card, maybe your a neighbor of someone who is late and they are trying to contact them. All of these calls are coming from over seas, when you frist pick up it takes a few minutes for the satelite to connect you so at first it sounds like no one is there, but there is. please note, most of these calls are from this 800 number, but wait, if they never get a peson on line, they will re-route they calls from a local area code in your neighborhood and it will say "Gateway Call" . lets say you live in a 212 area code, the caller ID will say Gateway Call and the numher will be 212-xxx-xxxx so you may think its a friend or other business call but it will be them.

Be very carefull. This company tries to "sell" you services like shopping discounts, insurance, etc. to "fill" the card so you have no available credit, and they either own all the services they are selling to you or get a percentage. Its a control method so they reap all the benefits of having you as a client plus charging you a ton of interest so you may not be late paying, etc. they are just trying every trick in the book to fill up that card.

The number is HSBC who services a lot of credit cards companies as well as best buy. Even if you keep all your card payments current it will not matter. If you close your card account it will not matter. They say that if you have ever done business with the the companies they service that it states in those lovely contracts that we agree to giving HSBC the right to solicit via the number we provided in the contract. They are legally protected and we have unknowingly given them the right to call us. I hate to be the bearer of bad news.

Ana,  The best thing you can do at this time is to put all your phone numbers, including cell phone numbers, into the Do Not Call Registry.  Once you do that, give it the 30 days they request for this service to take hold.  From there, monitor all phone messages, write down all phone numbers give in voice mail, the time the call came in and of course the day/date.  Make as many complaints to the Do Not Call Registry as possible.  After alot of looking around, this phone number belongs to a place called Card Services.  I am assuming that this is a credit card company of some sort.  Make sure that you do not have a credit card through this company before filing any complaints.  If you do have a card through this company, it might be assumed that they are calling you due to some sort of solicitation or late payments.  Always document, document, document.  Its the only way to catch them at their own dirty little game.  I too am getting phone calls from not only this phone number, but a couple of others and sympathize with you 100%.  Good Luck.

These ba$tards call me up to 15 times a day.  Like many of you, I don't even bother picking up the phone (I don't pick it up for ANY "Unavailable" type call).  I am also, like many of you, a victim of getting these calls even on the weekends.  It doesn't matter the day, the calls begin early in the morning and continue until 10:00 at night.  No messages, so I'm assuming either the call isn't that important (so why call then??), or more likely it's computer-generated ( I HATE lazy-a** automation!).  Here's the kicker:  If it IS a credit card company, I don't even HAVE a credit card!  I've never owned one in my LIFE!  I have no outstanding debts or loans, and nothing on my credit report.  I wish I had Call-Block available in my area.

Not entirely true. State laws supercede federal laws if they are stricter, such as Washington, which has a three-call-a-day rule. Doesn't matter if we speak to them or not. Also, one contact. If they hang up, talk to us or we leave a message, no more calls for the day. And, no more than three contacts per week. Debt collectors are supposed to know which states have which rules before they call. I also used to telemarket and our auto dialer would notify us if we were talking to someone who lived in a state where there are no rebuttals (you offer a service, the customer says no, and you say, "but Mr. Jackson, don't you know blah blah blah...). My point being, FDCPA laws are a minimum standard and states can issue standards higher than the federal ones. Best bet is to check with your states collection laws.

sorry buddy but it is a violation of law and you CANNOT call 20 times a day even to those that owe you money, in fact more times then not the Judge will drop the owed payment in a heartbeat if they catch folks like YOU calling people 20 times a day. Once it goes to court the person can and does often enough file a counter suit, not only are the payments dropped that are owed but the harassing company has to pay a fine and debt to the person that they committed the offense to. You are trained to think that you are in your jurisdiction to do so but you can be suit collectively as a company and PERSONALLY too !!! I know I use to be a para legal for an ACLU attorney amongst other things.  No matter if it is a debt collector or not, you do not have the right to intimidate, nor lie on the phone, nor harass, badger or threaten with lies to get an address or anything of the sort. YES many of these debt collectors do nefarious things like sell the information to others as well, they have no idea how much damage they can cause by being as criminal as those that cannot pay their debt, actually MOST folks would pay if they could, if they do not its because our nation and world economy has been sold out and trodden under foot. Nobody would not refuse to pay if they had the money and YET bill collectors torment and harass, thank God there are some awesome judges that are doing their part to stop this. A criminal is a criminal no matter what side of the desk they sit on. Its criminal to harass, there are U.C.C codes that protect the right and liberty of people UCC Title 18 Section 241 & 242 explicitly states this. And a person can actually pay a heavy fine of thousands of dollars and jail time for doing it. Folks need to learn their rights and pursue them fully to stop crooks of companies from harassing, using their personal data and also for not following laws and rights of the person in debt, there are ways to handle it but harassing is not one of them... Got it  java... To those that need advice, go look up taping laws and then find out your state laws, usually if you are apart of the conversation you can tape, you can also just point blankly state to the collector hunter that you are taping and then see how they either turn their call to sicky sweet or hang up faster then tomorrow. They usually always state that you are being taped, you too can tape and let them know it too... This way when you they call and say Hi I'm with blah blah company, that will already be on the tape, then you can state up front you are taping too, then if they refuse to give you their name, their location, their extension, their supervisor , or any of it, you got a HUGE case for court !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  taping is not illegal and often if you check the laws out they are very clear on it, you can also use the tape for documentation to keep your notes clear and write the entire tape down as well, so you not only have a tape but it in written form for the judge to view.. A good attorney will use it FAST, an unlearned one will not understand how to use tapes, most attorneys do though.

"They can call twenty times a day and it is still legal"Actually, no.  They cannot do this.  If either you or your fiance call me or someone like me who knows which end is up, like that, you'll find out exactly how expensive a mistake that was!  Not only is a calling schedule such as 20 times a day excessive by FDCPA standards, it is also a violation of telephone harassement statutes.Apparently you are not so 'well aware' of your limitations as you think you are."If there is a debt owed then we can call as many times as it takes to get you to answer. "Again, no you can't.  The law is that you are supposed to get something in writing - a demand letter - out to the person from whom you are attempting to collect within 5 days of that first call.  Substituting that legally required letter with more phone calls only makes you all that much more vulnerable to prosecution under the FDCPA.  It's $1,000 per call under the FDCPA and $1,500 under telephone harassement statutes.  If you don't believe me, see for yourself.  Contact the FTC and the FCC.

So let me get it straight. If I were a collector and I called you 10 times a day you would like that. Just curious. Guess if the shoe was on the other foot it would be different. Collectors don't even use their real names for fear of being sued.  Call someone for a debt. Use your real name. Call once a day and BE NICE. Scare tactics are illegal but most people are suckers. The Internet has made collectors jobs more difficult educating people of their rights. It is not right that the statute of limitations has run out on the debt and the collection agency wants you to promise to pay something so the debt will reage to current. THAT TO ME is poor business and anyone doing that should be fired and the company they work for sued

Actually, even if you owe a debt, you can tell a collection agency to not call you, and they must stop, but they can contact you in writing.  Federal law even limits those with legitimate debts from harassment.  Follow the law, or the next thing you know, legitimate debt or not, you're in court for harassment, and you wind up paying more in legal fees and judgments than the debt was to begin with.  Also, many collection agencies just call anyone with the same last name (I have a very common last name and get numerous calls fior others with the same last name) listed in the phone book. Upon the advice of an excellent consumer attorney in my home city, I work on the 3 strikes you're out system:  I document the incoming calls and will tell you twice you have the wrong person.  On the 3rd call, I contact  that attorney, and have a complaint filed.  I've won 2 of these cases that made it all the way into court, and I didn't owe the company a dime (I have 1 credit card which gets paid in full every month.)  A reputable collection agency can get what's owed to them by following the law.  The court doesn't seem to accept the "mistake" and "mixed up" defense, BTW.

Actually it is not a violation IF you owe a debt. They can call twenty times a day and it is still legal. My fiance and i both work for collection agencies and we are well aware of our limitations. If there is a debt owed then we can call as many times as it takes to get you to answer. We cannot call after 9 pm and where it is legal to call on a Sunday our company does not. You can report all you want, but once they investigate and find out it is an attempt to collect a DEBT it will go nowhere. We also DO follow do not call lists, so if you do not owe a debt and we still call you, you can request to be taken off the list. Sometimes there is a mistake in the system and phone numbers get mixed up. But one of the things I hear most is "Oh that's not my debt" in which case you need to investigate it because your identity has most likely been stolen then.

It's an auto-dialer.  If you wait long enough, and I'm not saying you should, you'll probably be connected to an 'operator' who is either a soft collector, hard collector, or marketer, depending on your situation.  HSBC probably doesn't care if you don't know the purpose of the call.    The silent period after you pick up is a delay caused by the auto-dialer's workflow.   As soon as an operator became available, it called your number because yours is the next one in the queue.  Unfortunately, if the 'operator' takes a break and doesn't tell the software to skip him or her,  the workflow software has to wait before sending you to the next available 'operator'.  To me, that's a blessing, because I assume it's an auto-dialer when I hear nothing.  So, I hang up.  Hopefully, HSBC won't receive any bail-out funds, because I'd hate to see them increase their 'operator' staff and bug the h*ll out of more people.  They've called me 5 times a day for the past week, even though  I've paid my credit card religiously.  Please on't bail them out!www.notosocialism.us.

Well that is all depending WHY they are calling, if you have done business with them or their vendor, or given them (or a vendor they represent) permission to call, then DNC list does not apply.  As for teens this MAY be bit more fuzzy, however I think the same rules apply or if a parent/guarden gave them permission, the exception may be if you are under 13, but not sure what happens if a parent inadvertently gives permission.

Lisa, by the laws stated in the fdcpa they have to.  I would try to send another letter but with fedex or another company like that.  by doing it this way you can find out when they received it.  i worked in collections for six months and hated every second of it, (i was told i was too customer service and needed to be more of an a**).  you can also send a cease and desist letter which will get them to stop calling but whatever debt will still be out there.  just Google cease and desist letter template and you can find an easy way of creating one.  The laws in the fdcpa vary state to state but overall are the same.  these people can only call you once a day (contact has to be made with the "debtor" or a message is left on the voice mail) and after that, its a big no no.  they can technically keep calling as long as a message isn't left or contact hasn't been made.  But at that point they are getting into harassment.  For an example, over the last three days i have received 15 calls from this number.  that is considered harassment and i will be going after them with a lawyer.  sorry for the wall of text.  if you, or anyone else, have any questions feel free to ask.  email is trueform28@email.com or ask here.

Actually, you can send a "Validaton of Debt" request for any charges they say you owe. If they cantprove it, then you don't owe it.You can also send a "Cease and Desist", which prohibits them from contacting you at all, save for certain exceptions (listed in the FDCPA).That said, the latter should be a last resort if you owe a debt, as it often prompts legal action. The validaton of debt idoes help in the event that your debt has been sold to a collection agency, as they often can't provide documentation to back ther claim. When you send one, send it certified mail. They're not allowed to contact you again until the validate it, and they only have 30 days to do that.

Here's the thing about Capital One. They say they aren't like the others with fees, but they do one thing that no other company has ever done to me. If you max the card, and it goes over the limit during the finance charge addition, they will charge you for it. If you pay the minimum (which I did when out of a job), and it remains over the limit, they will again charge the overlimit fee. The overlimit fee is often more than the minimum required payment, so a person trying to slowly pay off the card just winds up deeper in debt. I said screw them, and stopped paying and put the money toward other cards. Now they are offering to settle at 50% of the total owed, which is about what it would have been if the fees had not been tacked on. I've dealt with more expensive cards, but no one has as poor customer service and fee handling as Capital One.

This is HSBC however a couple things you should know, this is one of their many white label numbers.  This means that if you own one of a 100 different credit cards or store credit cards , it is still under HSBC, even if you never heard the name before.ALSO HSBC/household bank was in trouble and they sold many of their credit card brands to Capital One, they are going to use the  "HSBC" brand apparently, but it is actually now under going transition to Capital One (and now owned by them).  Apparently the will continue to license the HSBC brand name for the cards, and all the numbers will continue to remain the same however.  If you have an affinity card like a branded card or one of 100's of store credit cards, I assume those are mostly going to Capital One too, however I know that the visa/mastercard ones are.Big new fact though.  I know they are sending out letters to SOME customers informing them of this, but not all.  I think it is mainly affinity programs that are getting the notice. As far as if Capital One is Better or Worse than the "orginal" hsbc/household bank, not sure, but as a rule seems that those brands that advertise a lot or use mass media tend to be lower rated in customer satisfaction, and never heard anything particularly good about Capital One

I have been getting these calls for the last couple of days - several times a day.  If they are HSBC, they have been bought out by Capital One.  It does not matter if they are crooks, you are still obligated to pay the debt unless the court says you do not have to pay it.  If you don't pay it, they will come after you to try and collect.

What I especially think is funny is that I am now on SSI/SSD and they can't touch that money no matter what kind of court order. So HSBC will not only not get paid by me they will further waste money trying to obtain money from me that in no way can they get.  Keep sending letters. Keep calling. Send attorneys to represent you in court. The bottom line is I have very little money and that money is social security and can't be touched.

It bothers me not owing crooks like this money. I have no legal obligation to pay a bill to an illegal drug business.  HSBC was in with the Mexican drug gangs who killed 60,000 people this year. As far as I am concerned HSBC is nothing but a company filled with murderers and I will never send them a penny to further their killing as that would be a sin.

HSBC also entered into a business agreement that they would not defraud their investors.  Criminal acts were performed....and yet no one went to jail.  Now they will pay for their criminal acts with the money they collect from decent, ordinary people.  Probably will jack up fees and interest rates.  Their has been no sign of contrition on their part.  To them, the felony was just a business deal.If you borrowed money from an uncle...and found out he was using it to produce child pornography, would you continue to send him checks?  Paying them back is supporting a criminal enterprise.

Capitol One which is part of ING is no better than HSBC who was helping launder Mexican drug cartel money.On June 12, 2012, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control announced a $619 million settlement[10] with ING Bank N.V. to settle potential liability for conspiring to violate[11] the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) and the Trading with the Enemy Act (TWEA) and for violating New York state laws by illegally moving billions of dollars through the U.S. financial system on behalf of sanctioned Cuban and Iranian entities.Helping the Iranians who are terrorists. So it's either Mexican drug gangs or Iranian terrorists. either way you are supporting evil when you make any payment to these companies.  Trading with the Enemy Act!!!  These people are the enemy of the USA and some of these clowns want you to feel bad if you owe them money. Every dime you keep out of their hands could be another life saved.

Sorry to burst your bubble there 'Tommy'. I don't owe a single penny to anyone, for anything. The only debt I maintain is for business and tax purposes. Of course, I don't expect you to understand that any debt can be advantageous. You're just a low-life debt collector and the only thing you'd know about taxes is how to fill out a 1040 and wait for your refund check. So 'Tommy', do you actually think the people here are looking for a 'free ride'? They are not. The vast majority of people here have been victimized by sleazy debt collectors. Debt collectors who are incapable of getting honest work. Scum who have felony records and/or substance abuse problems. Dirt-bags who convince themselves that sitting all day on their fat, lazy behinds trying to con people out of money is a real job. Debt collectors who lie about what they do because they know what they are. Losers. You see 'Tommy', I know debt collectors. I've been in court rooms with more than a few. As a Plaintiff, not as a Defendant. It's always easy to spot a debt collector in a court room. The only ones there looking slimier than they are are their half-drunk Attys. And if their Attys. are only half-drunk it means it's still morning and the counselors haven't drank there lunch yet. Before you start mentally composing your reply 'Tommy', know this. I've never taken a pay-day loan. I've never even given it a thought. Like most people I have problems, but money is not one of them. I've never been sued and I can honestly say that there is not a soul on this planet who would be able to conceive of a reason why I would be. But I have been forced to legally pursue frauds who have been foolish enough to think that the people they prey upon are just as worthless as they are. The one shining asset that most debt collectors share is there incredible arrogance and there equally impressive stupidity. Debt collectors employ people who are even dumber than they are. That includes their Attys. Which is why the only times you'll see debt collectors in court is when they've been served. Or arrested. You want to applaud debt collectors 'Tommy'? Then spin your chair around and give all your fellow vermin in the boiler-room a big hand. Then try and get all their real names and phone numbers. You're sitting on a gold mine there 'Tommy'! Debt collectors are by far the biggest dead-beats in existence. Not that you'll ever collect a dime from them. If they had anything (or any pride) they wouldn't be debt collectors. But you are right 'Tommy'. There is no free ride. Debt collectors know this very well. They're always slinking around looking for bus fare.

Actually a debt collector is not one step below a fast food worker. A debt colector is far below that. The 5$ crack w***e on the corner has a social position well above that of a debt collector. The w***e at least provides a service. A debt collector provides nothing. He is there to enrich his bosses and make a few meager dollars for himself.Put simply, the only organisms on this planet lower than a debt collector are the outright crooks working out of India, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic.

Or are you so nice you'd just like to give things away? Everyone has to have a job and in this economy some beggars can't be choosers as the saying goes. Don't be stupid.

Am I as much a slimy person as this bank which apparently helped mexican drug gangs with their drug trade.  If you are not aware of it people are being murdered in this drug war in mexico.  I don't think my failure to pay a $500 debt compares to the murder of people in mexico. Maybe in your twisted world it does but then I can't imagine anybody who would choose debt collection as a way to make money unless they were the type of person who feeds on the pain of others and then I bet those murders in mexico actually make you feel good.

The government/DNC won’t help you; as a matter of fact they are the ones that are giving your number out.  What was supposed to help you has turned into a weapon against you.  Each month a new list of DNC numbers are released by your ever faithful government to “help” stop telemarketing phone calls but at the same time they make it available to anybody that wants a current list of WORKING NUMBERS!  Guess what by listing your number on the DNC you have just given it to every scam artist out there that has enough balls to register with the DNC.  Your government is too stupid, lazy or calloused to look right under their nose.  Remove your number from the DNC and in two months your scam callers will stop calling (though it may increase local calls).  If you don’t want to remove your number I suggest getting a call blocking device of some type.  I currently have 79 area codes blocked and at least 13 local numbers blocked and I still get repeated calls.  I love getting repeat calls because when my call blocking devices kick in I know it’s costing these morons money because the devices pick up and then hang up and I never hear the phone ring.   Get the last laugh on these jack***es by blocking them not just by complaining.  Complaining won’t stop the calls, -- Nothing Will – but you can silence your phone if you want to. The devices/programs I use are DIGITONE CALL BLOCKER 10 and PHONE TRAY. I may get the occasional stray call that gets through, BUT ONLY ONCE!!!!

When I get these I hit the "#" sign about 6 - 8 times quickly.  Normally it confuses the automated system and it logs the call as an error and most often removes the number from their call list.  If there is a "person" I normally just say "hold on a second" and put the phone down.  It is hilarious to listen to them shouting "hello, hello, hello" before they finally hang up.

I posted my response on page 26 of this post, there are that many, all the way back to 07. Anyway this page comes up first and so I thought this might help, maybe not, here it  goes. I let my son answer one of these the other night, he worked at the pizza parlor in high school, he told me to let him answer when he saw the ID on the TV screen, he just answered it like he was at work as he just said "Hello, _---___--'s Pizza, how may I take your order tonight", they hung up just like that. Work on your answer voice for something like this and maybe they will think they got their call # list messed up and take you off of it, It wasn't this particular #, it was on the ID tonight when I came back from the store, just might help, good luck. He took it as he knows how bad I hate putting up with them and you have to wait on the answer machine and then sometimes they leave some message you can't make out, we were in the middle of something so it worked out well.

OK: useful information time:  When these ($%&^) call, hang up then pick up the phone and dial *57.  This causes the call to be traced by the telephone company even if the caller was spoofing their caller ID. (it costs $4 on your phone bill unless *57 service is already part of your telephone service package) Then, once you have traced the same number three times, file a complaint with the local police department. The police department can (and is supposed to ) retrieve the tracing information from the telephone company.

You're doing exactally what you are complaining others are doing only you are wasting more time and space than they are. Just pick up the phone and hang it up.

. . . People who use this as an excuse to whine and vent, rather than as a powerful took to pool information with which to fight back.If all you "do" about the problem is express an opinion -- here -- that the law needs to be changed, you waste your time and ours. If you write to your elected state and federal representatives, then you're closer to being of some use.Think about it:     Right now, two issues on the political stage are Health Care and Torture. Telemarketing, for many, is torture. If you read these posts, and ads on this site which say things like "Harassed by Phone Calls?" you already know this. So, those who are opposed to torture of our enemies should be quite willing to put a stop to this torture.     There is an ever-growing body of evidence that stress causes a large percentage of health issues. Some doctors give estimates as high as (or higher than) 75% of patient visits being caused by stress. So, anyone who has the slightest interest in any kind of health care availability increase or who advocates any -- no matter how narrow -- particular kind of health care program should be eager to reduce stress among the citizenry.     Which means putting far more restrictions on telemarketing. Whether they are opposed to torture or in favor of health care, the conclusion is the same. And, if they claim telemarketing is not torture, check this: Do they give out their personal home telephone numbers? Are those numbers listed in the phone book? If not, then they are hypocrites, and clearly recognize the stressful -- torturing -- nature of telemarketing.------------------Don't whine. Do something. Post useful contact information about whoever calls you. Don't brag about the stupid act of not answering the phone to find out who is doing the harassment. Grow a pair, pick up the phone, ask some questions. Even play along, if that's what it takes. Find out who is making the calls, then post real information of the useful kind here.And, think about filing lawsuits yourself. If the FCC or FTC is able to collect ten billion trillion dollars from a telemarketer for violating the rules, you won't get a single cent. If you sue them, you can get as much as $20,000 per call.While that is an unlikely and difficult goal to reach (IT HAS BEEN DONE.), it's highly likely and not too difficult to collect between $500 and %1,500 per VIOLATION. And, a single call can potentially comprise multiple violations.

Because of limitations in the jurisdiction of the FTC and FCC, calls from or on behalf of political organizations, charities, and telephone surveyors would still be permitted, as would calls from companies with which you have an existing business relationship, or those to whom you’ve provided express agreement in writing to receive their calls. However, if you ask a company with which you have an existing business relationship to place your number on its own do-not-call list, it must honor your request.  You should keep a record of the date you make the request."   (www.donotcall.gov).

I have filed complaints (both FTC/FCC and state) on over 20 numbers in the last couple of months.  Also, I have spoken to the state DA.  The DA's office told me THE DO NOT CALL LIST IS A WASTE OF TIME AND TOTALLY UNENFORCEABLE due to current technology which allows for the creation of fictitious phone numbers.  I keep a rolling list of blocked numbers as my telephone supplier only allows for 12 numbers to be blocked.  I am going to take a suggestion offered in these comments and set automatic forwarding of these calls either to themseleves or another harassing number.

I filed a complaint for this number plus 16 other numbers to the FTC for this Card Services. I have 12 of these numbers blocked on my phone, this is my limit with my phone company. This Company has many numbers they call from including cell phone numbers. All we can do is keep filing these complaints with FTC and maybe they will catch up with this Company. I have been dealing with these people calling me since 2009. I have asked them to take me off their list and all they do is hang up on me. Time to shut this business down. I'm not sure what else to do. I called my Local Phone Co., talked to the Police and filed for the 3rd time on the "Do Not Call List". The Police advised me to file a complaint with the FTC I have done that.  I will be filing a complaint every time they call. So my advice to everyone else is to keep filing a complaint to FTC web site.  https://complaints.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx?panel=2And here is the FTC phone number to file complaints: Phone: Call our toll-free helpline:1-877-FTC-HELP      ( 1-877-382-4357  )TTY: 1-866-653-4261Hope this information helps some of the readers.Lets flood FTC with all these complaints. Maybe they will do something about it.

This is from an old telemarketer. When you request to be removed from their calling databank,you should also ask for a letter to be mailed to you stating you have been removed. There is also an 800 number each company has for these kind of complaints. Ask for the number and call it if you are bothered again after 72 hours.  If no removal has been done, then report the company to FCC.

Maybe this post explains why there are so many illegal telemarketing calls. Someone starts out as an interviewer, comes to imagine they know all the rules, gets promoted . . . and then applies a lot of rules or implements a lot of waivers that don't exist.NOBODY is entitled to call after 9 p.m.ALL COMPANIES OF ANY FORM, CALLING FOR ANY REASON, are required to stop calling when notified of the recipient's request to stop. Some pretend that, unless you say, "Put us on your do not call list." they are not required to do it, but the reality is that they are prohibited from interfering -- in any way -- with a do not call request. That includes pretending the request did not take what they consider to be the "right form."This statement is true: " . . .they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission."And, "If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list..." the company is not in compliance with the law. A supervisor or manager may be able to help, but if the caller can't do it, chances are the company is n't even trying to comply. Part of the confusion stems from the fact that they are allowed to call even people who are on state or national Do Not Call registries. However, ALL entities (Even politicians.) are required to have internal DNC lists. They're also required to immediately put you on their list as soon as you ask.

I used to work for market research companies as an interviewer, market research survey calls are not included in the law by the National DNC list, so you may receive calls from market research, they also do not have time restrictions like solicitors since they are not selling anything, companies like Gallup however try to keep it no later than 9 PM.  Most research companies also can disposition a call as Do Not Call, and have the number on a list, but not all of them do this, they are also not required to do so, Gallup and MSR out of Omaha however do, Its annoying, they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission.  If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list...ask for a supervisor or manager...they'll normally get you on something or remove the number from the current program database.  I hope this helps.

The government/DNC won’t help you; as a matter of fact they are the ones that are giving your number out.  What was supposed to help you has turned into a weapon against you.  Each month a new list of DNC numbers are released by your ever faithful government to “help” stop telemarketing phone calls but at the same time they make it available to anybody that wants a current list of WORKING NUMBERS!  Guess what by listing your number on the DNC you have just given it to every scam artist out there that has enough balls to register with the DNC.  Your government is too stupid, lazy or calloused to look right under their nose.  Remove your number from the DNC and in two months your scam callers will stop calling (though it may increase local calls).  If you don’t want to remove your number I suggest getting a call blocking device of some type.  I currently have 79 area codes blocked and at least 13 local numbers blocked and I still get repeated calls.  I love getting repeat calls because when my call blocking devices kick in I know it’s costing these morons money because the devices pick up and then hang up and I never hear the phone ring.   Get the last laugh on these jack***es by blocking them not just by complaining.  Complaining won’t stop the calls, -- Nothing Will – but you can silence your phone if you want to. The devices/programs I use are DIGITONE CALL BLOCKER 10 and PHONE TRAY. I may get the occasional stray call that gets through, BUT ONLY ONCE!!!!

When I get these I hit the "#" sign about 6 - 8 times quickly.  Normally it confuses the automated system and it logs the call as an error and most often removes the number from their call list.  If there is a "person" I normally just say "hold on a second" and put the phone down.  It is hilarious to listen to them shouting "hello, hello, hello" before they finally hang up.

Work on your answer voice for something like this and maybe they will think they got their call # list messed up and take you off of it, It wasn't this particular #, it was on the ID tonight when I came back from the store, just might help, good luck.

OK: useful information time:  When these ($%&^) call, hang up then pick up the phone and dial *57.  This causes the call to be traced by the telephone company even if the caller was spoofing their caller ID. (it costs $4 on your phone bill unless *57 service is already part of your telephone service package) Then, once you have traced the same number three times, file a complaint with the local police department. The police department can (and is supposed to ) retrieve the tracing information from the telephone company.

. . . People who use this as an excuse to whine and vent, rather than as a powerful took to pool information with which to fight back.If all you "do" about the problem is express an opinion -- here -- that the law needs to be changed, you waste your time and ours. If you write to your elected state and federal representatives, then you're closer to being of some use.Think about it:     Right now, two issues on the political stage are Health Care and Torture. Telemarketing, for many, is torture. If you read these posts, and ads on this site which say things like "Harassed by Phone Calls?" you already know this. So, those who are opposed to torture of our enemies should be quite willing to put a stop to this torture.     There is an ever-growing body of evidence that stress causes a large percentage of health issues. Some doctors give estimates as high as (or higher than) 75% of patient visits being caused by stress. So, anyone who has the slightest interest in any kind of health care availability increase or who advocates any -- no matter how narrow -- particular kind of health care program should be eager to reduce stress among the citizenry.     Which means putting far more restrictions on telemarketing. Whether they are opposed to torture or in favor of health care, the conclusion is the same. And, if they claim telemarketing is not torture, check this: Do they give out their personal home telephone numbers? Are those numbers listed in the phone book? If not, then they are hypocrites, and clearly recognize the stressful -- torturing -- nature of telemarketing.------------------Don't whine. Do something. Post useful contact information about whoever calls you. Don't brag about the stupid act of not answering the phone to find out who is doing the harassment. Grow a pair, pick up the phone, ask some questions. Even play along, if that's what it takes. Find out who is making the calls, then post real information of the useful kind here.And, think about filing lawsuits yourself. If the FCC or FTC is able to collect ten billion trillion dollars from a telemarketer for violating the rules, you won't get a single cent. If you sue them, you can get as much as $20,000 per call.While that is an unlikely and difficult goal to reach (IT HAS BEEN DONE.), it's highly likely and not too difficult to collect between $500 and %1,500 per VIOLATION. And, a single call can potentially comprise multiple violations.

Survey Companies are considered telemarketers since they collect and sell your info. This outfit is a scam and violates FCC laws for dead calls and war dialing. They are bound to observe the no call list, but scam outfits never pay attention to it as they are difficult to trace and stay ahead of investigators. I have reported these crooks to FTC and FCC and State Attorney general, but they are impossible to find in a physical location.

The above information is not correct.  Here is the precise language from the National Do Not Call Registries official site.  Survey firms, charities, and politicians, and organizations working on their behalf are not subject to national DNC restrictions."Placing your number on the National Do Not Call Registry will stop most telemarketing calls, but not all. Because of limitations in the jurisdiction of the FTC and FCC, calls from or on behalf of political organizations, charities, and telephone surveyors would still be permitted, as would calls from companies with which you have an existing business relationship, or those to whom you’ve provided express agreement in writing to receive their calls. However, if you ask a company with which you have an existing business relationship to place your number on its own do-not-call list, it must honor your request.  You should keep a record of the date you make the request."   (www.donotcall.gov).

According to the national DNC registry, a company has 31 days to add you from their do not call list. I recently put a post on facebook that anyone who has signed up for the DNC should go back and read it in it's entirety.

So true.  They're collecting information for some company.  Whether that data gets sold or not, it *could* be sold to more telemarketers and junk mailers.  But, if they have more information about you, your data record will be more valuable to other telemarketers and junk mailers.  Best thing is to do not give out anything.  Funny thing is, peope that are not in the know will believe that it will prevent more calls from that one company, but what people have to realize that companies doesn't just collect information for nothing.

I filed a complaint for this number plus 16 other numbers to the FTC for this Card Services. I have 12 of these numbers blocked on my phone, this is my limit with my phone company. This Company has many numbers they call from including cell phone numbers. All we can do is keep filing these complaints with FTC and maybe they will catch up with this Company. I have been dealing with these people calling me since 2009. I have asked them to take me off their list and all they do is hang up on me. Time to shut this business down. I'm not sure what else to do. I called my Local Phone Co., talked to the Police and filed for the 3rd time on the "Do Not Call List". The Police advised me to file a complaint with the FTC I have done that.  I will be filing a complaint every time they call. So my advice to everyone else is to keep filing a complaint to FTC web site.  https://complaints.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx?panel=2And here is the FTC phone number to file complaints: Phone: Call our toll-free helpline:1-877-FTC-HELP      ( 1-877-382-4357  )TTY: 1-866-653-4261Hope this information helps some of the readers.Lets flood FTC with all these complaints.

This is from an old telemarketer. When you request to be removed from their calling databank,you should also ask for a letter to be mailed to you stating you have been removed. There is also an 800 number each company has for these kind of complaints. Ask for the number and call it if you are bothered again after 72 hours.  If no removal has been done, then report the company to FCC.

Maybe this post explains why there are so many illegal telemarketing calls. Someone starts out as an interviewer, comes to imagine they know all the rules, gets promoted . . . and then applies a lot of rules or implements a lot of waivers that don't exist.NOBODY is entitled to call after 9 p.m.ALL COMPANIES OF ANY FORM, CALLING FOR ANY REASON, are required to stop calling when notified of the recipient's request to stop. Some pretend that, unless you say, "Put us on your do not call list." they are not required to do it, but the reality is that they are prohibited from interfering -- in any way -- with a do not call request. That includes pretending the request did not take what they consider to be the "right form."This statement is true: " . . .they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission."And, "If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list..." the company is not in compliance with the law. A supervisor or manager may be able to help, but if the caller can't do it, chances are the company is n't even trying to comply. Part of the confusion stems from the fact that they are allowed to call even people who are on state or national Do Not Call registries. However, ALL entities (Even politicians.) are required to have internal DNC lists. They're also required to immediately put you on their list as soon as you ask.

I used to work for market research companies as an interviewer, market research survey calls are not included in the law by the National DNC list, so you may receive calls from market research, they also do not have time restrictions like solicitors since they are not selling anything, companies like Gallup however try to keep it no later than 9 PM.  Most research companies also can disposition a call as Do Not Call, and have the number on a list, but not all of them do this, they are also not required to do so, Gallup and MSR out of Omaha however do, Its annoying, they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission.  If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list...ask for a supervisor or manager...they'll normally get you on something or remove the number from the current program database.  I hope this helps.

This is HSBC however HSBC/household bank was in trouble and they sold most of their credit card brands to Capital One, so it is still "HSBC" brand but it is actually now under going transition to Capital One (and now owned by them).  Apparently the will continue to license the HSBC brand name for the cards, and all the numbers will continue to remain the same however.Big new fact though.  I know they are sending out letters to SOME customers informing them of this, but not all.  I think it is mainly affinity programs that are getting the notice. As far as if Capital One is Better or Worse than the "orginal" hsbc/household bank, not sure, but as a rule seems that those brands that advertise a lot or use mass media tend to be lower rated in customer satisfaction, and never heard anything particularly good about Capital One

The only thing to do is pay them off, close by consumer in formal writing, reqisterd mail return receipt, get on the do not call list and also on the "opt out" list so your information is no longer shared with marketing companies. This does NOT stop them from selling it to bill collectors, and any time you open a bank account or apply for credit you give your phone number, so the credit agencies get your information, and they also have your employer listed on the credit file.

This number calls me several times a day, EVERY day. If I do not answer the phone, their autodialer hangs up on the answering machine, and if I do answer, their people hang up on me. Then the system calls me back in about 4-5 minutes, and we go through the whole process over again. It is getting REALLY old. I counted the calls one day and their were 28. TWENTY god damned EIGHT phone calls in one day! They start at exactly 7:45am every day, and end somewhere around 9:30pm . I find it very annoying, particularly because after years and years of working night shift, I sleep in the early daylight hours and am up all night... so typically I'm about one hour into sleeping and the phone starts ringing.Yes, it is HSBC. And I do actually have a credit card through them. The card is technically late in payments. I lost my job and have little to no income, so I've been sending what I can. It just doesn't add up to what they want. So on the occasions when they do NOT hang up on me, I go through the whole argument with them about the debt, and they try to tell me I need to sell everything I own (which is precisely nothing) and send them the money, or get a friend or relative to take out a loan to pay them, etc. etc. - very unreasonable.So after talking to them, hang up, wait an hour or so, and they will call me back and go through the entire thing over again. One day I talked to their agents FIVE TIMES. All for the same damned account! I even got the same person twice! And when I told them I had already spoken to them they told me they hadn't called me since the week before and that I was obviously mistaken.  o.O  Also, one delusional operator from this company had the nerve to tell me that the economy is presently stronger than it has ever been, and unemployment is at all time lows, and that if I am unemployed it is obviously by my own choosing. Crackhead!After that I just stopped answering. Now I answer the phone for nobody. I let the machine pick up and if it's someone I want to talk to I will call them back. If God himself were to call me, he'd have to leave a message!

Yes, you are all right, it is Household bank, Yes! even if you are not late with your payments and even if you don't have a CC with them. First, if you have a card with them and are not late, they want to set up a payment, to help them with the cash flow.( So many people have defaulted) If you are late, I am soooo sorry they will not stop, from early in the morning till late at night and yes on sunday, even very early morning. If you don't have a card, maybe your a neighbor of someone who is late and they are trying to contact them. All of these calls are coming from over seas, when you frist pick up it takes a few minutes for the satelite to connect you so at first it sounds like no one is there, but there is. please note, most of these calls are from this 800 number, but wait, if they never get a peson on line, they will re-route they calls from a local area code in your neighborhood and it will say "Gateway Call" . lets say you live in a 212 area code, the caller ID will say Gateway Call and the numher will be 212-xxx-xxxx so you may think its a friend or other business call but it will be them.

Be very carefull. This company tries to "sell" you services like shopping discounts, insurance, etc. to "fill" the card so you have no available credit, and they either own all the services they are selling to you or get a percentage.

Ana,  The best thing you can do at this time is to put all your phone numbers, including cell phone numbers, into the Do Not Call Registry.  Once you do that, give it the 30 days they request for this service to take hold.  From there, monitor all phone messages, write down all phone numbers give in voice mail, the time the call came in and of course the day/date.  Make as many complaints to the Do Not Call Registry as possible.  After alot of looking around, this phone number belongs to a place called Card Services.  I am assuming that this is a credit card company of some sort.  Make sure that you do not have a credit card through this company before filing any complaints.  If you do have a card through this company, it might be assumed that they are calling you due to some sort of solicitation or late payments.  Always document, document, document.  Its the only way to catch them at their own dirty little game.  I too am getting phone calls from not only this phone number, but a couple of others and sympathize with you 100%.  Good Luck.

Not entirely true. State laws supercede federal laws if they are stricter, such as Washington, which has a three-call-a-day rule. Doesn't matter if we speak to them or not. Also, one contact. If they hang up, talk to us or we leave a message, no more calls for the day. And, no more than three contacts per week. Debt collectors are supposed to know which states have which rules before they call. I also used to telemarket and our auto dialer would notify us if we were talking to someone who lived in a state where there are no rebuttals (you offer a service, the customer says no, and you say, "but Mr. Jackson, don't you know blah blah blah...). My point being, FDCPA laws are a minimum standard and states can issue standards higher than the federal ones. Best bet is to check with your states collection laws.

sorry buddy but it is a violation of law and you CANNOT call 20 times a day even to those that owe you money, in fact more times then not the Judge will drop the owed payment in a heartbeat if they catch folks like YOU calling people 20 times a day. Once it goes to court the person can and does often enough file a counter suit, not only are the payments dropped that are owed but the harassing company has to pay a fine and debt to the person that they committed the offense to. You are trained to think that you are in your jurisdiction to do so but you can be suit collectively as a company and PERSONALLY too !!! I know I use to be a para legal for an ACLU attorney amongst other things.  No matter if it is a debt collector or not, you do not have the right to intimidate, nor lie on the phone, nor harass, badger or threaten with lies to get an address or anything of the sort. YES many of these debt collectors do nefarious things like sell the information to others as well, they have no idea how much damage they can cause by being as criminal as those that cannot pay their debt, actually MOST folks would pay if they could, if they do not its because our nation and world economy has been sold out and trodden under foot. Nobody would not refuse to pay if they had the money and YET bill collectors torment and harass, thank God there are some awesome judges that are doing their part to stop this. A criminal is a criminal no matter what side of the desk they sit on. Its criminal to harass, there are U.C.C codes that protect the right and liberty of people UCC Title 18 Section 241 & 242 explicitly states this. And a person can actually pay a heavy fine of thousands of dollars and jail time for doing it. Folks need to learn their rights and pursue them fully to stop crooks of companies from harassing, using their personal data and also for not following laws and rights of the person in debt, there are ways to handle it but harassing is not one of them... Got it  java... To those that need advice, go look up taping laws and then find out your state laws, usually if you are apart of the conversation you can tape, you can also just point blankly state to the collector hunter that you are taping and then see how they either turn their call to sicky sweet or hang up faster then tomorrow. They usually always state that you are being taped, you too can tape and let them know it too... This way when you they call and say Hi I'm with blah blah company, that will already be on the tape, then you can state up front you are taping too, then if they refuse to give you their name, their location, their extension, their supervisor , or any of it, you got a HUGE case for court !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  taping is not illegal and often if you check the laws out they are very clear on it, you can also use the tape for documentation to keep your notes clear and write the entire tape down as well, so you not only have a tape but it in written form for the judge to view.. A good attorney will use it FAST, an unlearned one will not understand how to use tapes, most attorneys do though.

"They can call twenty times a day and it is still legal"Actually, no.  They cannot do this.  If either you or your fiance call me or someone like me who knows which end is up, like that, you'll find out exactly how expensive a mistake that was!  Not only is a calling schedule such as 20 times a day excessive by FDCPA standards, it is also a violation of telephone harassement statutes.Apparently you are not so 'well aware' of your limitations as you think you are."If there is a debt owed then we can call as many times as it takes to get you to answer. "Again, no you can't.  The law is that you are supposed to get something in writing - a demand letter - out to the person from whom you are attempting to collect within 5 days of that first call.  Substituting that legally required letter with more phone calls only makes you all that much more vulnerable to prosecution under the FDCPA.  It's $1,000 per call under the FDCPA and $1,500 under telephone harassement statutes.  If you don't believe me, see for yourself.  Contact the FTC and the FCC.

So let me get it straight. If I were a collector and I called you 10 times a day you would like that. Just curious. Guess if the shoe was on the other foot it would be different. Collectors don't even use their real names for fear of being sued.  Call someone for a debt. Use your real name. Call once a day and BE NICE. Scare tactics are illegal but most people are suckers. The Internet has made collectors jobs more difficult educating people of their rights. It is not right that the statute of limitations has run out on the debt and the collection agency wants you to promise to pay something so the debt will reage to current. THAT TO ME is poor business and anyone doing that should be fired and the company they work for sued

Actually, even if you owe a debt, you can tell a collection agency to not call you, and they must stop, but they can contact you in writing.  Federal law even limits those with legitimate debts from harassment.  Follow the law, or the next thing you know, legitimate debt or not, you're in court for harassment, and you wind up paying more in legal fees and judgments than the debt was to begin with.  Also, many collection agencies just call anyone with the same last name (I have a very common last name and get numerous calls fior others with the same last name) listed in the phone book. Upon the advice of an excellent consumer attorney in my home city, I work on the 3 strikes you're out system:  I document the incoming calls and will tell you twice you have the wrong person.  On the 3rd call, I contact  that attorney, and have a complaint filed.  I've won 2 of these cases that made it all the way into court, and I didn't owe the company a dime (I have 1 credit card which gets paid in full every month.)  A reputable collection agency can get what's owed to them by following the law.  The court doesn't seem to accept the "mistake" and "mixed up" defense, BTW.

Actually it is not a violation IF you owe a debt. They can call twenty times a day and it is still legal. My fiance and i both work for collection agencies and we are well aware of our limitations. If there is a debt owed then we can call as many times as it takes to get you to answer. We cannot call after 9 pm and where it is legal to call on a Sunday our company does not. You can report all you want, but once they investigate and find out it is an attempt to collect a DEBT it will go nowhere. We also DO follow do not call lists, so if you do not owe a debt and we still call you, you can request to be taken off the list. Sometimes there is a mistake in the system and phone numbers get mixed up. But one of the things I hear most is "Oh that's not my debt" in which case you need to investigate it because your identity has most likely been stolen then.

It's an auto-dialer.  If you wait long enough, and I'm not saying you should, you'll probably be connected to an 'operator' who is either a soft collector, hard collector, or marketer, depending on your situation.  HSBC probably doesn't care if you don't know the purpose of the call.    The silent period after you pick up is a delay caused by the auto-dialer's workflow.   As soon as an operator became available, it called your number because yours is the next one in the queue.  Unfortunately, if the 'operator' takes a break and doesn't tell the software to skip him or her,  the workflow software has to wait before sending you to the next available 'operator'.  To me, that's a blessing, because I assume it's an auto-dialer when I hear nothing.  So, I hang up.  Hopefully, HSBC won't receive any bail-out funds, because I'd hate to see them increase their 'operator' staff and bug the h*ll out of more people.  They've called me 5 times a day for the past week, even though  I've paid my credit card religiously.  Please on't bail them out!www.notosocialism.us.

Well that is all depending WHY they are calling, if you have done business with them or their vendor, or given them (or a vendor they represent) permission to call, then DNC list does not apply.  As for teens this MAY be bit more fuzzy, however I think the same rules apply or if a parent/guarden gave them permission, the exception may be if you are under 13, but not sure what happens if a parent inadvertently gives permission.

Lisa, by the laws stated in the fdcpa they have to.  I would try to send another letter but with fedex or another company like that.  by doing it this way you can find out when they received it.  i worked in collections for six months and hated every second of it, (i was told i was too customer service and needed to be more of an a**).  you can also send a cease and desist letter which will get them to stop calling but whatever debt will still be out there.  just Google cease and desist letter template and you can find an easy way of creating one.  The laws in the fdcpa vary state to state but overall are the same.  these people can only call you once a day (contact has to be made with the "debtor" or a message is left on the voice mail) and after that, its a big no no.  they can technically keep calling as long as a message isn't left or contact hasn't been made.  But at that point they are getting into harassment.  For an example, over the last three days i have received 15 calls from this number.  that is considered harassment and i will be going after them with a lawyer.  sorry for the wall of text.  if you, or anyone else, have any questions feel free to ask.  email is trueform28@email.com or ask here.

What happens if the company doesn't respond to the Validation of Debt request?

800-684-8429

384 Report Long ago Unknown
Actually, you can send a "Validaton of Debt" request for any charges they say you owe. If they cantprove it, then you don't owe it.You can also send a "Cease and Desist", which prohibits them from contacting you at all, save for certain exceptions (listed in the FDCPA).That said, the latter should be a last resort if you owe a debt, as it often prompts legal action. The validaton of debt idoes help in the event that your debt has been sold to a collection agency, as they often can't provide documentation to back ther claim. When you send one, send it certified mail. They're not allowed to contact you again until the validate it, and they only have 30 days to do that.

Here's the thing about Capital One. They say they aren't like the others with fees, but they do one thing that no other company has ever done to me. If you max the card, and it goes over the limit during the finance charge addition, they will charge you for it. If you pay the minimum (which I did when out of a job), and it remains over the limit, they will again charge the overlimit fee. The overlimit fee is often more than the minimum required payment, so a person trying to slowly pay off the card just winds up deeper in debt. I said screw them, and stopped paying and put the money toward other cards. Now they are offering to settle at 50% of the total owed, which is about what it would have been if the fees had not been tacked on. I've dealt with more expensive cards, but no one has as poor customer service and fee handling as Capital One.

This is HSBC however a couple things you should know, this is one of their many white label numbers.  This means that if you own one of a 100 different credit cards or store credit cards , it is still under HSBC, even if you never heard the name before.ALSO HSBC/household bank was in trouble and they sold many of their credit card brands to Capital One, they are going to use the  "HSBC" brand apparently, but it is actually now under going transition to Capital One (and now owned by them).  Apparently the will continue to license the HSBC brand name for the cards, and all the numbers will continue to remain the same however.  If you have an affinity card like a branded card or one of 100's of store credit cards, I assume those are mostly going to Capital One too, however I know that the visa/mastercard ones are.Big new fact though.  I know they are sending out letters to SOME customers informing them of this, but not all.  I think it is mainly affinity programs that are getting the notice. As far as if Capital One is Better or Worse than the "orginal" hsbc/household bank, not sure, but as a rule seems that those brands that advertise a lot or use mass media tend to be lower rated in customer satisfaction, and never heard anything particularly good about Capital One

Sorry to burst your bubble there 'Tommy'. I don't owe a single penny to anyone, for anything. The only debt I maintain is for business and tax purposes. Of course, I don't expect you to understand that any debt can be advantageous. You're just a low-life debt collector and the only thing you'd know about taxes is how to fill out a 1040 and wait for your refund check. So 'Tommy', do you actually think the people here are looking for a 'free ride'? They are not. The vast majority of people here have been victimized by sleazy debt collectors. Debt collectors who are incapable of getting honest work. Scum who have felony records and/or substance abuse problems. Dirt-bags who convince themselves that sitting all day on their fat, lazy behinds trying to con people out of money is a real job. Debt collectors who lie about what they do because they know what they are. Losers. You see 'Tommy', I know debt collectors. I've been in court rooms with more than a few. As a Plaintiff, not as a Defendant. It's always easy to spot a debt collector in a court room. The only ones there looking slimier than they are are their half-drunk Attys. And if their Attys. are only half-drunk it means it's still morning and the counselors haven't drank there lunch yet. Before you start mentally composing your reply 'Tommy', know this. I've never taken a pay-day loan. I've never even given it a thought. Like most people I have problems, but money is not one of them. I've never been sued and I can honestly say that there is not a soul on this planet who would be able to conceive of a reason why I would be. But I have been forced to legally pursue frauds who have been foolish enough to think that the people they prey upon are just as worthless as they are. The one shining asset that most debt collectors share is there incredible arrogance and there equally impressive stupidity. Debt collectors employ people who are even dumber than they are. That includes their Attys. Which is why the only times you'll see debt collectors in court is when they've been served. Or arrested. You want to applaud debt collectors 'Tommy'? Then spin your chair around and give all your fellow vermin in the boiler-room a big hand. Then try and get all their real names and phone numbers. You're sitting on a gold mine there 'Tommy'! Debt collectors are by far the biggest dead-beats in existence. Not that you'll ever collect a dime from them. If they had anything (or any pride) they wouldn't be debt collectors. But you are right 'Tommy'. There is no free ride. Debt collectors know this very well. They're always slinking around looking for bus fare.

The government/DNC won’t help you; as a matter of fact they are the ones that are giving your number out.  What was supposed to help you has turned into a weapon against you.  Each month a new list of DNC numbers are released by your ever faithful government to “help” stop telemarketing phone calls but at the same time they make it available to anybody that wants a current list of WORKING NUMBERS!  Guess what by listing your number on the DNC you have just given it to every scam artist out there that has enough balls to register with the DNC.  Your government is too stupid, lazy or calloused to look right under their nose.  Remove your number from the DNC and in two months your scam callers will stop calling (though it may increase local calls).  If you don’t want to remove your number I suggest getting a call blocking device of some type.  I currently have 79 area codes blocked and at least 13 local numbers blocked and I still get repeated calls.  I love getting repeat calls because when my call blocking devices kick in I know it’s costing these morons money because the devices pick up and then hang up and I never hear the phone ring.   Get the last laugh on these jack***es by blocking them not just by complaining.  Complaining won’t stop the calls, -- Nothing Will – but you can silence your phone if you want to. The devices/programs I use are DIGITONE CALL BLOCKER 10 and PHONE TRAY. I may get the occasional stray call that gets through, BUT ONLY ONCE!!!!

When I get these I hit the "#" sign about 6 - 8 times quickly.  Normally it confuses the automated system and it logs the call as an error and most often removes the number from their call list.  If there is a "person" I normally just say "hold on a second" and put the phone down.  It is hilarious to listen to them shouting "hello, hello, hello" before they finally hang up.

Work on your answer voice for something like this and maybe they will think they got their call # list messed up and take you off of it, It wasn't this particular #, it was on the ID tonight when I came back from the store, just might help, good luck. He took it as he knows how bad I hate putting up with them and you have to wait on the answer machine and then sometimes they leave some message you can't make out, we were in the middle of something so it worked out well.

OK: useful information time:  When these ($%&^) call, hang up then pick up the phone and dial *57.  This causes the call to be traced by the telephone company even if the caller was spoofing their caller ID. (it costs $4 on your phone bill unless *57 service is already part of your telephone service package) Then, once you have traced the same number three times, file a complaint with the local police department. The police department can (and is supposed to ) retrieve the tracing information from the telephone company.

. . . People who use this as an excuse to whine and vent, rather than as a powerful took to pool information with which to fight back.If all you "do" about the problem is express an opinion -- here -- that the law needs to be changed, you waste your time and ours. If you write to your elected state and federal representatives, then you're closer to being of some use.Think about it:     Right now, two issues on the political stage are Health Care and Torture. Telemarketing, for many, is torture. If you read these posts, and ads on this site which say things like "Harassed by Phone Calls?" you already know this. So, those who are opposed to torture of our enemies should be quite willing to put a stop to this torture.     There is an ever-growing body of evidence that stress causes a large percentage of health issues. Some doctors give estimates as high as (or higher than) 75% of patient visits being caused by stress. So, anyone who has the slightest interest in any kind of health care availability increase or who advocates any -- no matter how narrow -- particular kind of health care program should be eager to reduce stress among the citizenry.     Which means putting far more restrictions on telemarketing. Whether they are opposed to torture or in favor of health care, the conclusion is the same. And, if they claim telemarketing is not torture, check this: Do they give out their personal home telephone numbers? Are those numbers listed in the phone book? If not, then they are hypocrites, and clearly recognize the stressful -- torturing -- nature of telemarketing.------------------Don't whine. Do something. Post useful contact information about whoever calls you. Don't brag about the stupid act of not answering the phone to find out who is doing the harassment. Grow a pair, pick up the phone, ask some questions. Even play along, if that's what it takes. Find out who is making the calls, then post real information of the useful kind here.And, think about filing lawsuits yourself. If the FCC or FTC is able to collect ten billion trillion dollars from a telemarketer for violating the rules, you won't get a single cent. If you sue them, you can get as much as $20,000 per call.While that is an unlikely and difficult goal to reach (IT HAS BEEN DONE.), it's highly likely and not too difficult to collect between $500 and %1,500 per VIOLATION. And, a single call can potentially comprise multiple violations.

Because of limitations in the jurisdiction of the FTC and FCC, calls from or on behalf of political organizations, charities, and telephone surveyors would still be permitted, as would calls from companies with which you have an existing business relationship, or those to whom you’ve provided express agreement in writing to receive their calls. However, if you ask a company with which you have an existing business relationship to place your number on its own do-not-call list, it must honor your request.  You should keep a record of the date you make the request."   (www.donotcall.gov).

Both parties do this.You're getting calls from Democrats, because the data they have on you makes them think there's a good chance you'll vote Democratic. It's usually because of the town you live in. During the special US Senate election in January 2010, I got a LOT of calls and they were almost all from Scott Brown, because my town is mostly Republican. A friend of mine in a wealthy town got calls only from the Democratic candidate.

According to the national DNC registry, a company has 31 days to add you from their do not call list. I recently put a post on facebook that anyone who has signed up for the DNC should go back and read it in it's entirety. Many organizations are exempt, but all must put you on their internal DNC list if the caller requests it. (again withing 31 days)

So true.  They're collecting information for some company.  Whether that data gets sold or not, it *could* be sold to more telemarketers and junk mailers.  But, if they have more information about you, your data record will be more valuable to other telemarketers and junk mailers.  Best thing is to do not give out anything.  Funny thing is, peope that are not in the know will believe that it will prevent more calls from that one company, but what people have to realize that companies doesn't just collect information for nothing.

I'm sorry, but telemarketers I talk to generally hang up the moment I mention "do Not Call", the word "list" doesn't seem to get heard. I'd never get more words in to ask for a confirmation letter.

I live in a retirement community and we were getting 8 to 10  calls a day.With my old service, I could not block any calls. But with this new service, I can block all of them. You should see my block list. All is quite now and I am at peace, plus the new service only cost me $9.88 a month, plus taxes. To say that I am happy is an under statement.

I have filed complaints (both FTC/FCC and state) on over 20 numbers in the last couple of months.  Also, I have spoken to the state DA.  The DA's office told me THE DO NOT CALL LIST IS A WASTE OF TIME AND TOTALLY UNENFORCEABLE due to current technology which allows for the creation of fictitious phone numbers.  I keep a rolling list of blocked numbers as my telephone supplier only allows for 12 numbers to be blocked.  I am going to take a suggestion offered in these comments and set automatic forwarding of these calls either to themseleves or another harassing number.

I filed a complaint for this number plus 16 other numbers to the FTC for this Card Services. I have 12 of these numbers blocked on my phone, this is my limit with my phone company. This Company has many numbers they call from including cell phone numbers. All we can do is keep filing these complaints with FTC and maybe they will catch up with this Company. I have been dealing with these people calling me since 2009. I have asked them to take me off their list and all they do is hang up on me. Time to shut this business down. I'm not sure what else to do. I called my Local Phone Co., talked to the Police and filed for the 3rd time on the "Do Not Call List". The Police advised me to file a complaint with the FTC I have done that.  I will be filing a complaint every time they call. So my advice to everyone else is to keep filing a complaint to FTC web site.  https://complaints.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx?panel=2And here is the FTC phone number to file complaints: Phone: Call our toll-free helpline:1-877-FTC-HELP      ( 1-877-382-4357  )TTY: 1-866-653-4261Hope this information helps some of the readers.Lets flood FTC with all these complaints.

This is from an old telemarketer. When you request to be removed from their calling databank,you should also ask for a letter to be mailed to you stating you have been removed. There is also an 800 number each company has for these kind of complaints. Ask for the number and call it if you are bothered again after 72 hours.  If no removal has been done, then report the company to FCC.

Maybe this post explains why there are so many illegal telemarketing calls. Someone starts out as an interviewer, comes to imagine they know all the rules, gets promoted . . . and then applies a lot of rules or implements a lot of waivers that don't exist.NOBODY is entitled to call after 9 p.m.ALL COMPANIES OF ANY FORM, CALLING FOR ANY REASON, are required to stop calling when notified of the recipient's request to stop. Some pretend that, unless you say, "Put us on your do not call list." they are not required to do it, but the reality is that they are prohibited from interfering -- in any way -- with a do not call request. That includes pretending the request did not take what they consider to be the "right form."This statement is true: " . . .they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission."And, "If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list..." the company is not in compliance with the law. A supervisor or manager may be able to help, but if the caller can't do it, chances are the company is n't even trying to comply. Part of the confusion stems from the fact that they are allowed to call even people who are on state or national Do Not Call registries. However, ALL entities (Even politicians.) are required to have internal DNC lists. They're also required to immediately put you on their list as soon as you ask.

I used to work for market research companies as an interviewer, market research survey calls are not included in the law by the National DNC list, so you may receive calls from market research, they also do not have time restrictions like solicitors since they are not selling anything, companies like Gallup however try to keep it no later than 9 PM.  Most research companies also can disposition a call as Do Not Call, and have the number on a list, but not all of them do this, they are also not required to do so, Gallup and MSR out of Omaha however do, Its annoying, they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission.  If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list...ask for a supervisor or manager...they'll normally get you on something or remove the number from the current program database.  I hope this helps.

The government/DNC won’t help you; as a matter of fact they are the ones that are giving your number out.  What was supposed to help you has turned into a weapon against you.  Each month a new list of DNC numbers are released by your ever faithful government to “help” stop telemarketing phone calls but at the same time they make it available to anybody that wants a current list of WORKING NUMBERS!  Guess what by listing your number on the DNC you have just given it to every scam artist out there that has enough balls to register with the DNC.  Your government is too stupid, lazy or calloused to look right under their nose.  Remove your number from the DNC and in two months your scam callers will stop calling (though it may increase local calls).  If you don’t want to remove your number I suggest getting a call blocking device of some type.  I currently have 79 area codes blocked and at least 13 local numbers blocked and I still get repeated calls.  I love getting repeat calls because when my call blocking devices kick in I know it’s costing these morons money because the devices pick up and then hang up and I never hear the phone ring.   Get the last laugh on these jack***es by blocking them not just by complaining.  Complaining won’t stop the calls, -- Nothing Will – but you can silence your phone if you want to. The devices/programs I use are DIGITONE CALL BLOCKER 10 and PHONE TRAY. I may get the occasional stray call that gets through, BUT ONLY ONCE!!!!

OK: useful information time:  When these ($%&^) call, hang up then pick up the phone and dial *57.  This causes the call to be traced by the telephone company even if the caller was spoofing their caller ID. (it costs $4 on your phone bill unless *57 service is already part of your telephone service package) Then, once you have traced the same number three times, file a complaint with the local police department. The police department can (and is supposed to ) retrieve the tracing information from the telephone company.

So, those who are opposed to torture of our enemies should be quite willing to put a stop to this torture.     There is an ever-growing body of evidence that stress causes a large percentage of health issues. Some doctors give estimates as high as (or higher than) 75% of patient visits being caused by stress. So, anyone who has the slightest interest in any kind of health care availability increase or who advocates any -- no matter how narrow -- particular kind of health care program should be eager to reduce stress among the citizenry.     Which means putting far more restrictions on telemarketing. Whether they are opposed to torture or in favor of health care, the conclusion is the same. And, if they claim telemarketing is not torture, check this: Do they give out their personal home telephone numbers? Are those numbers listed in the phone book? If not, then they are hypocrites, and clearly recognize the stressful -- torturing -- nature of telemarketing.------------------Don't whine. Do something. Post useful contact information about whoever calls you. Don't brag about the stupid act of not answering the phone to find out who is doing the harassment. Grow a pair, pick up the phone, ask some questions. Even play along, if that's what it takes. Find out who is making the calls, then post real information of the useful kind here.And, think about filing lawsuits yourself. If the FCC or FTC is able to collect ten billion trillion dollars from a telemarketer for violating the rules, you won't get a single cent. If you sue them, you can get as much as $20,000 per call.While that is an unlikely and difficult goal to reach (IT HAS BEEN DONE.), it's highly likely and not too difficult to collect between $500 and %1,500 per VIOLATION. And, a single call can potentially comprise multiple violations.

Well, if you're a telemarketer, of course you think telemarketing is totally legitimate. Drug dealers think dealing drugs is legitimate way to make a living.The truth is that these marketing "surveys" are really just pretexting. They're trying to gather personal information on you.I fell for that once. They called me to do a survey on local radio stations. They asked me my occupation and they hung up without asking any questions about radio stations. It was probably my former employer.

I took their poll.  It seemed legitimate, with no "gotcha" questions.  It had some national questions, but seemed to have more focused on the upcoming North Carolina primaries (in May) for governor and senator.  Since I live in NC, it seemed perfectly natural.  I work for a company which does similar polls - though with live telephone interviewers.

In phone talk, the calls are routed to dallas and then rerouted to plano.  The information pages in the front of my phone directory told me that much, so this company that charges apprently isn't worth their salt, unless they can tell you something MUCH more specific.  That interested?  Try asking your service provider brfore shelling out any $.  Seems unfair to have to pay for the info leading to the offensive party.  GOOD LUCK!!

The problem with these "survey" groups now is that they are using the "survey" gimmick to get around the DNC list and try to sell you something.  They have you answer a few dorky questions and then they tell you as a thank you, they will send you a free gift and you only have to pay shipping and handling or a "service fee."  The problem is that these fees are usually equal to the cost of the item and so you have just bought it.   So many people fall for this scam.

Survey Companies are considered telemarketers since they collect and sell your info. This outfit is a scam and violates FCC laws for dead calls and war dialing.

The above information is not correct.  Here is the precise language from the National Do Not Call Registries official site.  Survey firms, charities, and politicians, and organizations working on their behalf are not subject to national DNC restrictions."Placing your number on the National Do Not Call Registry will stop most telemarketing calls, but not all. Because of limitations in the jurisdiction of the FTC and FCC, calls from or on behalf of political organizations, charities, and telephone surveyors would still be permitted, as would calls from companies with which you have an existing business relationship, or those to whom you’ve provided express agreement in writing to receive their calls. However, if you ask a company with which you have an existing business relationship to place your number on its own do-not-call list, it must honor your request.  You should keep a record of the date you make the request."   (www.donotcall.gov).

Both parties do this.You're getting calls from Democrats, because the data they have on you makes them think there's a good chance you'll vote Democratic.

According to the national DNC registry, a company has 31 days to add you from their do not call list. I recently put a post on facebook that anyone who has signed up for the DNC should go back and read it in it's entirety.

So true.  They're collecting information for some company.  Whether that data gets sold or not, it *could* be sold to more telemarketers and junk mailers.  But, if they have more information about you, your data record will be more valuable to other telemarketers and junk mailers.  Best thing is to do not give out anything.  Funny thing is, peope that are not in the know will believe that it will prevent more calls from that one company, but what people have to realize that companies doesn't just collect information for nothing.

You should see my block list. All is quite now and I am at peace, plus the new service only cost me $9.88 a month, plus taxes. To say that I am happy is an under statement.

I filed a complaint for this number plus 16 other numbers to the FTC for this Card Services. I have 12 of these numbers blocked on my phone, this is my limit with my phone company. This Company has many numbers they call from including cell phone numbers. All we can do is keep filing these complaints with FTC and maybe they will catch up with this Company. I have been dealing with these people calling me since 2009. I have asked them to take me off their list and all they do is hang up on me. Time to shut this business down. I'm not sure what else to do. I called my Local Phone Co., talked to the Police and filed for the 3rd time on the "Do Not Call List".

This is from an old telemarketer. When you request to be removed from their calling databank,you should also ask for a letter to be mailed to you stating you have been removed. There is also an 800 number each company has for these kind of complaints. Ask for the number and call it if you are bothered again after 72 hours.  If no removal has been done, then report the company to FCC.

Maybe this post explains why there are so many illegal telemarketing calls. Someone starts out as an interviewer, comes to imagine they know all the rules, gets promoted . . . and then applies a lot of rules or implements a lot of waivers that don't exist.NOBODY is entitled to call after 9 p.m.ALL COMPANIES OF ANY FORM, CALLING FOR ANY REASON, are required to stop calling when notified of the recipient's request to stop. Some pretend that, unless you say, "Put us on your do not call list." they are not required to do it, but the reality is that they are prohibited from interfering -- in any way -- with a do not call request. That includes pretending the request did not take what they consider to be the "right form."This statement is true: " . . .they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission."And, "If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list..." the company is not in compliance with the law. A supervisor or manager may be able to help, but if the caller can't do it, chances are the company is n't even trying to comply. Part of the confusion stems from the fact that they are allowed to call even people who are on state or national Do Not Call registries. However, ALL entities (Even politicians.) are required to have internal DNC lists. They're also required to immediately put you on their list as soon as you ask.

I used to work for market research companies as an interviewer, market research survey calls are not included in the law by the National DNC list, so you may receive calls from market research, they also do not have time restrictions like solicitors since they are not selling anything, companies like Gallup however try to keep it no later than 9 PM.  Most research companies also can disposition a call as Do Not Call, and have the number on a list, but not all of them do this, they are also not required to do so, Gallup and MSR out of Omaha however do, Its annoying, they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission.  If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list...ask for a supervisor or manager...they'll normally get you on something or remove the number from the current program database.  I hope this helps.
