They have called me in the past. They are a collection agency but it's for Washington Mutual which used to be Providian. I spoke to Monesha. Then they called back after I had made a payment and they were rude! They kept asking me if I was Sarah ***** (my last name) and I said yes, yes, yes over and over again. And then they kept asking if I had a Washington Mutual card and again I kept saying yes. Then it was like, "Are you going to pay this bill?"  I asked if I could set up a payment for a future date and they said to me "DUH! Yeah!" Rude.

The fact that this nimrod from IC System divulged information about your alleged debt to a third-party is a major legal no-no. That alone is a violation of federal debt collection laws and more than enough grounds to sue them.  The best part of this is that you have a witness -- your brother-in-law.If I were you, I'd find a consumer law professional who works on contingency and sue IC for disclosing information about you to a third-party.  At the very least, you may want to consider mailing them a letter directing them to cease all attempts to contact you and also warning them that failure to comply will result in legal action against them. (Federal law requires them to comply with your request.) Then if IC contacts you more than once after receiving your cease communication notice, then they are in violation of the law and can be sued for monetary damages for each violation.  If you send them a cease-communication notice, be sure to do so via certified US Mail with a return receipt request.  Here is IC's address: I.C.

These guys call all the time and never leave a message.  They are a collection agency but they call 100x's in one day.  Seems like they are calling every half an hour.  The one day that I *did* answer the phone to them, told them we didn't have the money, I hung up from them and later that day they called back again only I didn't answer.  Isn't that harrassment?  I just told them on the phone that day we didn't have the money to pay them just yet - the first of the year is when we'll be paying them off and they don't seem to listen.  If they can't stop calling, they should be reprimended.  They should only call once a day and if nobody answers, leave a message if there is a machine.

I believe this ICS is collecting for Household bank / credit cards. They keep calling and hanging up if I (male voice) answers, and they try to get into it with my wife (female voice) when she answers. We have told them well over a dozen times we have no account with them  - AND WOULD NEVER - now that we know how much big jerks they can be.  They say they have this/our number on their accounts and can keep calling to try to reach whoever the woman is they are trying to. SO instead of dealing with trying to get the real number they have their phone lemmings keep calling one they know is no good.  I hope they fail like Bears Stearns and we see these mutts walking out at 1 am with boxes full, heading into unemployment land. Then THEY will get harassed.

I just received two calls from this company on my sister's cell phone, which I have with me today. The first time, I ignored the call. No voicemail left. The second time, I answered the phone. They asked for a woman who didn't own the number. I explained the situation to them, and also mentioned that I was looking at a list of people who have received harassing phone calls from them. I demanded they remove the number from their list. The man who was calling sounded like he was either inebriated, or under the influence of drugs. His voice was muffled and garbled.

I got the same calls and I am a newspaper carrier.  My number is unlisted, and I get the automated dialer thing, but they knew my name.  I believe the paper I deliver for gave the info to them.  The problem is this: They don't care about the Do Not Call Registry because the fines are so low that it doesn't make a dent in their earnings.  You can choose to just not answer, but they will keep calling until you do.  And even after you tell them not to, they will continue.  It seems we have no recourse at all.

Had the same number calling me ..... here's how to fix:  Change your number don't hand it out to anyone including family.  Get a Google voice number and use that as your NEW phone number.  Give that out to everyone.  With GV#, you can customize your incoming calls, make a call ring a different number .... BLOCK unlimited numbers, my favorite feature.  You can get GV for your Android now too.  Google keeps making this thing better and better.  And no, I don't work for them although my post seems like an ad.  This concept is the same at getting your own dot com just for the email control.  You don't hand out your main email address, you hand out aliases.  Create an alias for everything you do online i.e. newsletters / subscriptions / online job sites / Youtube etc.  You'll have a string of aliases a mile long after awhile.  But it works, my inbox is spam free now.  If an alias is sold (a regular occurrence for me) I simply delete that alias and take note to never subscribe to that whatever again.  easy squeezy.  So ... take control of your home phone with GV or continue getting junk phone calls ...... zup to you :)

This phone number belongs to the Pisa Group of St. Charles MO.  I called them on the direct line (314) 845-2825 and talked to a manager.  He wanted my phone number "in order to remove me from their list" did not want to give my number (for privacy reason and to avoid confirming my phone number) but told him I was on the national do-not-call list and he would find me there.He then told me that they were exempted from the do-not call list since they were not selling anything, only offering something for free.  This would be a coupon booklet containing "free" or discounted subscription to a local newspaper.They thus believe they have found a loophole around the national do-not-call registry.Maybee if we all start calling the company directly and repeatedly and bombard the Pisa group with complains, they will get the message?

The National Do Not Call List- Is only a list of people that wish telemarketers not to call them. It is not a list that will stop all unwanted callers. The only way to stop companies that ignore the list is to report them. I have told a lot of companies that I am on the national do not call list and if they ever call again I will report them. It is a $16,000 fine. The only groups that can ignore the list are Charities and political campaigns. One other thing can be done about any and all calls, If you have repeatedly recieved calls after telling the group you do not wish to be contacted anymore. Telemarketers, charities and political campaigns. Just inform them that you feel you are being harrassed and are being forced to seek legal council.If it is a foreign company, good luck! I found the harder you mess with them the less chance of them calling you back again. The longer you keep them on the phone wasting their time the funnier they get. ;O) I even got an Indonesian Supervisor cussing at me trying to sell me Dish Network.

The Pisa Group does the telemarketing for the Dallas Morning News and various other publications across the country.  I have dealt with Pisa for business and they have been a pleasure to work with, but I am only dealing with Managers and Directors.  I know how annoying the telemarketers are.  Anyway, Pisa is calling for the newspaper company and trying to get you to subscribe to the newspaper again.I get the calls and it is annoying, but at the same time I just ignore the calls I dont know and its not too much of a headache.

you are absolutely right it is thepisagroup.com that uses 314-963-8895 and 636-935-7146.  They are telemarketers, and if you ask them how they got your telephone number they say your local paper. I called the local paper and they say that is how you got your newspaper from us . . they are our telemarketers. Then he said the 314 area code was PISA and the 636 number is actually the local newspaper so in effect they were doubling up on us. thank you for your help . . "ask the question" where did you get the phone number?  We are on the laughable DO NOT CALL feds list, and receive political survey calls; and we changed our phone number to a non-pub which is a landline/home phone.

OK, So I used to work the "The Pisa Group", that is who this company is. They handle newspaper accounts accross the country, they aren't a scam, but they are annoying. They are hired by different newspapers, ie, Oklahoma, Texas, Californina, Virginia, all over, including right here in St. Louis, to offer special promotions, and lower rates. I quit quite sometime ago, after over a year, but I recently signed up for the local paper here, and NOW I am getting calls every day myself from them, with some bigger and better deal. They have 6 locations throughout St. Louis, so although you may have told one to quit, the other office will probably continue to call. If you go to, www.thepisagroup.com , it will give you all the branches, phone numbers, and manager numbers, pitch a big enough fit, and they will take your number directly in and put you on the DNC list. If we got an irrate customer, we would hand write the number, give it to the boss on duty, and they would update the list immediately. Hope this helps some!

-   A post by “Vicky” on page 4 =I did a lot of work on The Pisa Group. The Pisa Group is a telemarketing company that violates the do-not-call registry. I also called them to have my name removed and like with all other people, they were friendly and gave me the standard answer that my number was provided by my local newspaper in Austin. Well, the Acquisition Sales & Retention Manager from the Austin American Statesman did do a thorough investigation and confirmed this is incorrect. She contacted the Pisa group and found out that this company practices "prefix dialing" and never received my information from the newspaper. Obviously, the Pisa Group is using the good name of a lot of newspapers to cover up their illegal do-not-call practices. I would encourage everybody that has been harassed by the Pisa Group to file an online complaint through the Better Business Bureau (www.bbb.org) and also file a complaint with the government.-   My Post = I also **NOT** be calling that number  to "take my number off the list" because the REASON THEY ARE SO NICE WHEN YOU CALL TO GET IT REMOVED IS BECAUSE THEY ARE LAUGHING AT YOU, WHILE THEY SELL YOUR (NOW VALID) NUMBER TO SOME OTHER FOOL THAT WILL CALL YOU 100 TIMES A DAY!!!

The number is owned by the Pisa Group. They are a hardcore telemarketing company. They sell newspapers all over the country, Fla., KS, OK, Tex, Calif., NY, NJ. All their calls are computerized and each caller can make 50 - 100 calls per hour. They are located in St. Louis, Missouri and are very underhanded. They cheat their employees. They call former subscribers to the paper and hide behind the fact that you were a customer of the paper. Best thing to do is to tell them, "Put me on your do not call list and don't call again." Once you do that, if they call, it is a $5000.00 fine.

Best thing you can do is not subscrribe to newspapers or magazines. Helluva thing to say but most of these things somehow go back to your newspaper and magazines. You have extablished a business relationship with them and the DNC rules allow them to contact you. Sorry, but that is how it goes. When you cancel your subscription, do it by calling you paper and telling them why you are to cancel your subscription. Enough people do it and maybe they will think twice about using this type of firm to contact their customers. I know I contacted my newspaper and they immediaely put me on their DNC list. Since they put my number out with these people though, it may not do a lot of good.

OK for those of you that think the government is looking out for you, think again.  There are sooooo many loopholes in the DNC (as with every other bill that is put out by the losers in DC) that it is guaranteed not to work.  As he said if a company has any relationship whatsoever with a company you have done business with (even requesting information) then they can legally harass you.  The government will only take a company to court if they have a case that has been proven.  Who provides the evidence; why you the public, people that have been harrassed until they are about to come unglued.  Only then will the government take the company to court and of course when they win who gets the money?  Is it the people that have been harassed?  No it is our greedy, I mean needy government.I registered several years ago and my telephone did not changeduring that time but as I added to the list it seemed I got more calls.   I have since changed my number and do not answer the phone unless I know who it is.  I only get a couple of calles a day now.  Remember if you answer they know they have a live person.

Anytime you sign up for ANYTHING that you put your number on, magazine subscription forms anything that you are buying and any contest you enter that involves putting your phone number on means that company and ANY of it's affiliates can contact you, legally, this is why you have to continuously update you information on the do not call list. Every time you give you number out anywhere from 1-100 companies get to legally put you back on their list of number they are allowed to call. This is the loophole. This list has devastated the telemarketing industry resulting in lost jobs and can be linked to the economic recession. Think about letting people call you, some of the products and services are worth it and you will be helping all of America with recovering from this horrific economic downturn.

State do not call registries mostly expire periodically.I have been getting calls from "news". I recently stopped my subscription to the Dallas News. I suspect this is a service for newspapers to obtain subscribers or resubscribers and that, in  my case, the Dallas News has commissioned them to solicit me. If you have  had any relationship with a newspaper, it is possible that they avoid the Do Not Call requirements by this means, by claiming a business relationship with you. Even if you are already taking a paper (or have an online subscription), this service may be trying to sell you additional services or an additional paper. Call blocking is of course best, but many phone carriers do not offer this option (e.g. Verizon, at least in Texas). The best I have been able to do is note that caller ID says "news", so I do not answer. It is a nuisance, but less a nuisance than if I actually answer, which  is certainly not guaranteed to stop future nuisance calls from them.

This is not correct.....your registration DOES NOT expire.  Go to www.donotcall.gov and you will see this at the top of their page:  Your registration will not expire. Telephone numbers placed on the National Do Not Call Registry will remain on it permanently due to the Do-Not-Call Improvement Act of 2007, which became law in February 2008. Read more about it at http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2008/04/dncfyi.shtm.

as it says on the link that was posted by Bez, you might have to register again if you change your phone service or change anything on the phone service but they say you do not have to register again every year.  also cell phones CAN be registered contrary to the rumor that floated around a couple of years ago stating otherwise.  Thanks for the link Bez, it helped me a lot!

They are scammers..They just called here about an hour ago. The lady told me she  is with the newspaper in TX. How they have this great special for 8 days and so on. I told her we don't read the paper. So she asked why. I told her we just don't have time. Then she started pushing the Sunday paper. I then told her we work weekends too. So then she told me we can get it for coupons. Yea right what ever.. Then I told her I don't use them. She was not too happy and hung up. lolAny how, if you have call block just block the number. You don't need to have them in the caller ID to block it. If you don't know how to, just call the phone company or go to their site..You should visit National Do Not Call Registry and register your number. It really works. https://www.donotcall.gov/This area code is from  314 (MO) Timezone-6 SE Missouri: St Louis city and parts of the metro area onlyHope this helps

I got the same calls and I am a newspaper carrier.  My number is unlisted, and I get the automated dialer thing, but they knew my name.  I believe the paper I deliver for gave the info to them.  The problem is this: They don't care about the Do Not Call Registry because the fines are so low that it doesn't make a dent in their earnings.  You can choose to just not answer, but they will keep calling until you do.  And even after you tell them not to, they will continue.  It seems we have no recourse at all.

Had the same number calling me ..... here's how to fix:  Change your number don't hand it out to anyone including family.  Get a Google voice number and use that as your NEW phone number.  Give that out to everyone.  With GV#, you can customize your incoming calls, make a call ring a different number .... BLOCK unlimited numbers, my favorite feature.  You can get GV for your Android now too.  Google keeps making this thing better and better.  And no, I don't work for them although my post seems like an ad.  This concept is the same at getting your own dot com just for the email control.  You don't hand out your main email address, you hand out aliases.  Create an alias for everything you do online i.e. newsletters / subscriptions / online job sites / Youtube etc.  You'll have a string of aliases a mile long after awhile.  But it works, my inbox is spam free now.  If an alias is sold (a regular occurrence for me) I simply delete that alias and take note to never subscribe to that whatever again.  easy squeezy.  So ... take control of your home phone with GV or continue getting junk phone calls ...... zup to you :)

This phone number belongs to the Pisa Group of St. Charles MO.  I called them on the direct line (314) 845-2825 and talked to a manager.  He wanted my phone number "in order to remove me from their list" did not want to give my number (for privacy reason and to avoid confirming my phone number) but told him I was on the national do-not-call list and he would find me there.He then told me that they were exempted from the do-not call list since they were not selling anything, only offering something for free.  This would be a coupon booklet containing "free" or discounted subscription to a local newspaper.They thus believe they have found a loophole around the national do-not-call registry.Maybee if we all start calling the company directly and repeatedly and bombard the Pisa group with complains, they will get the message?

The National Do Not Call List- Is only a list of people that wish telemarketers not to call them. It is not a list that will stop all unwanted callers. The only way to stop companies that ignore the list is to report them. I have told a lot of companies that I am on the national do not call list and if they ever call again I will report them. It is a $16,000 fine. The only groups that can ignore the list are Charities and political campaigns. One other thing can be done about any and all calls, If you have repeatedly recieved calls after telling the group you do not wish to be contacted anymore. Telemarketers, charities and political campaigns. Just inform them that you feel you are being harrassed and are being forced to seek legal council.If it is a foreign company, good luck! I found the harder you mess with them the less chance of them calling you back again. The longer you keep them on the phone wasting their time the funnier they get. ;O) I even got an Indonesian Supervisor cussing at me trying to sell me Dish Network.

OK, So I used to work the "The Pisa Group", that is who this company is. They handle newspaper accounts accross the country, they aren't a scam, but they are annoying. They are hired by different newspapers, ie, Oklahoma, Texas, Californina, Virginia, all over, including right here in St. Louis, to offer special promotions, and lower rates. I quit quite sometime ago, after over a year, but I recently signed up for the local paper here, and NOW I am getting calls every day myself from them, with some bigger and better deal. They have 6 locations throughout St. Louis, so although you may have told one to quit, the other office will probably continue to call. If you go to, www.thepisagroup.com , it will give you all the branches, phone numbers, and manager numbers, pitch a big enough fit, and they will take your number directly in and put you on the DNC list. If we got an irrate customer, we would hand write the number, give it to the boss on duty, and they would update the list immediately. Hope this helps some!

-   A post by “Vicky” on page 4 =I did a lot of work on The Pisa Group. The Pisa Group is a telemarketing company that violates the do-not-call registry. I also called them to have my name removed and like with all other people, they were friendly and gave me the standard answer that my number was provided by my local newspaper in Austin. Well, the Acquisition Sales & Retention Manager from the Austin American Statesman did do a thorough investigation and confirmed this is incorrect. She contacted the Pisa group and found out that this company practices "prefix dialing" and never received my information from the newspaper. Obviously, the Pisa Group is using the good name of a lot of newspapers to cover up their illegal do-not-call practices. I would encourage everybody that has been harassed by the Pisa Group to file an online complaint through the Better Business Bureau (www.bbb.org) and also file a complaint with the government.-   My Post = I also **NOT** be calling that number  to "take my number off the list" because the REASON THEY ARE SO NICE WHEN YOU CALL TO GET IT REMOVED IS BECAUSE THEY ARE LAUGHING AT YOU, WHILE THEY SELL YOUR (NOW VALID) NUMBER TO SOME OTHER FOOL THAT WILL CALL YOU 100 TIMES A DAY!!!

The number is owned by the Pisa Group. They are a hardcore telemarketing company. They sell newspapers all over the country, Fla., KS, OK, Tex, Calif., NY, NJ. All their calls are computerized and each caller can make 50 - 100 calls per hour. They are located in St. Louis, Missouri and are very underhanded. They cheat their employees. They call former subscribers to the paper and hide behind the fact that you were a customer of the paper. Best thing to do is to tell them, "Put me on your do not call list and don't call again." Once you do that, if they call, it is a $5000.00 fine.

Best thing you can do is not subscrribe to newspapers or magazines. Helluva thing to say but most of these things somehow go back to your newspaper and magazines. You have extablished a business relationship with them and the DNC rules allow them to contact you. Sorry, but that is how it goes. When you cancel your subscription, do it by calling you paper and telling them why you are to cancel your subscription. Enough people do it and maybe they will think twice about using this type of firm to contact their customers. I know I contacted my newspaper and they immediaely put me on their DNC list. Since they put my number out with these people though, it may not do a lot of good.

Well, considering the fact that people have reported that they are calling about a TX newspaper and I just now received a call about it being for a local paper here in AZ and that number is from Missouri??? A little questionable. Why would a company from Missouri call folks representing multiple newspapers? I get that outsourcing is one thing but that is going to serve as a disincentive nonetheless that a representative from my local paper doesn't even live locally, let alone in the state.

OK for those of you that think the government is looking out for you, think again.  There are sooooo many loopholes in the DNC (as with every other bill that is put out by the losers in DC) that it is guaranteed not to work.  As he said if a company has any relationship whatsoever with a company you have done business with (even requesting information) then they can legally harass you.  The government will only take a company to court if they have a case that has been proven.  Who provides the evidence; why you the public, people that have been harrassed until they are about to come unglued.  Only then will the government take the company to court and of course when they win who gets the money?  Is it the people that have been harassed?  No it is our greedy, I mean needy government.I registered several years ago and my telephone did not changeduring that time but as I added to the list it seemed I got more calls.   I have since changed my number and do not answer the phone unless I know who it is.  I only get a couple of calles a day now.  Remember if you answer they know they have a live person.

Anytime you sign up for ANYTHING that you put your number on, magazine subscription forms anything that you are buying and any contest you enter that involves putting your phone number on means that company and ANY of it's affiliates can contact you, legally, this is why you have to continuously update you information on the do not call list. Every time you give you number out anywhere from 1-100 companies get to legally put you back on their list of number they are allowed to call. This is the loophole. This list has devastated the telemarketing industry resulting in lost jobs and can be linked to the economic recession. Think about letting people call you, some of the products and services are worth it and you will be helping all of America with recovering from this horrific economic downturn.

State do not call registries mostly expire periodically.I have been getting calls from "news". I recently stopped my subscription to the Dallas News. I suspect this is a service for newspapers to obtain subscribers or resubscribers and that, in  my case, the Dallas News has commissioned them to solicit me. If you have  had any relationship with a newspaper, it is possible that they avoid the Do Not Call requirements by this means, by claiming a business relationship with you. Even if you are already taking a paper (or have an online subscription), this service may be trying to sell you additional services or an additional paper. Call blocking is of course best, but many phone carriers do not offer this option (e.g. Verizon, at least in Texas). The best I have been able to do is note that caller ID says "news", so I do not answer. It is a nuisance, but less a nuisance than if I actually answer, which  is certainly not guaranteed to stop future nuisance calls from them.

Although not specifically illegal, I agree, it is somewhat deceptive.  The card I received was a dead give away, it had no return address and no company identification.  I'm sure that they're intentions are mostly honorable, but they'll never get a phone call or a single dollar bill from me.  As a rule, you should never call unsolicited phone numbers or reply to unsolicited emails.  And, NEVER give your personal information to someone that calls you.  If a seemingly legitimate company calls you and asks for personal informaion, ask for a telephone number to call them back at.  Before you dial that number, look on the legitimate companies website and see if it is a match.  If not, call the company (from the listed phone number) and inquire why they called and if indeed it was a legitimate call.  If you suspect fraud, call the Maricopa County Attorney's office right away.  They will look into it and take the appropriate action.
