Hi, well i didnt check the caller id in time till later i looked at my other phone. Well when the call came in all i said was hello and the machine lady said THANK YOU FOR ACCEPTING THE COLLECT CALL AND THEY HUNG UP. I then paniced and called my phone co. to make this complaint and they said i shall have a block for no or receiving collect calls. If my next statement shows a charge i will get credit. Well im in the process of joining t & c waiting on the contract to come. I have been 2-1/2 behinds on creditors and knew that number looked familiar and sure enough i do now. I then went to the internet search box and typed in this number 1-800-955-6600 and heres two links that shows if im right that this third party is doing a vilation and why on earth are they trying to reach me by a collect call help will be appreciated folks.
