Has anyone ever dealt with this CA? They have been calling me at work, even though I told them not to, and I am getting ready to send a Debt Validation request and C&D. I asked for a mailing address and he said "we will call you every day until this is resolved," and then hung up. They have called themselves Premier Recovery Group and PRG. It is for an older debt and I thought I paid off through a debt consolidation program, but they are so rude, I dont like trying to talk to them.

Does anyone have an address? Thanks!

Today I got a call at my job from this number 866-364-6516 when I called the number back there was a recording saying they were closed. Looking at all the complaints on here and other websites about this number, I looked for the place on google maps with the addresses that you provided and just as I pictured, there were no business buildings to those address. If it were in a business building then it had another sign up and most is in a residential community.
If you pretend to be a FBI officer or law enforcement, these guys will never call again let them know that they are being recorded for security purposes and this will make them not call.

Fax them a written c n d at 716 240 2241. . Tell them to stop contacting you by phone or you will contact centennial law firm. A cease and desist order can be drawn up by an attorney, but anyone can.write one as long as you are telling them to stop calling. Once that is done they BY LAW cannot call you... Its the law. You can fax it to them at the number above. BE SURE to keep a record of when they call and what is said. Centenial law firm specializes in taking these scum bags to the ground. Id contact them directly on this one.

They called my work yesterday, the caller ID read Buffalo, NY & gave me a number of 716-335-9447. I told them I couldn't take calls at work, got a 866.364.6516 number. Total bottomfeeders. I had already filed a complaint with the NCAG, FTC, and IC3 internet crimes. The rep @ NCAG who handles all consumer protection complaints had actually called me back and told me they've been dealing w/ major complaints and have sent them notices about violating the FTC but it always came back returned.

The BBb has 4 complaints on them now. Their grade is F. Insist on a validation of Debt letter before you give them ANYTHING. Google FDCPA and read the law. Any time they tell you something that violates that, Let them know. Also let them know without a valid Physical address you can't confirm they are a legitimate, Legal company. If you live in TX all collection agencies have to post a $10,000.00 Surety Bond to collect. As of the time I dealt with them they did not have one. You can confirm this at The Texas Secretary of State's website. Constantly question the Validity of their right to collect, DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY INFORMATION. They will eventually let you alone.


Sub: #5 I Believe they are a scam

I believe they are a scam for the following reasons.

They did not have accurate information regarding my debt when I called back.

They are required by FDCPA to provide a physical address to send complaints to and refused.

They Threatened to fax my work about the debt even after I told them Our phones were not permitted to be used for personal business

They finally agreed to send me a validation of debt letter which was never received.

They have an "F" rating with the better business bureau.

I could not find any type of listing or website, nor any business license information.

I Live in Texas & to collect in Texas They have to have a $10,000.00 surety bond which they don't have either

After doing a lot of searching and numerous phone calls i have found out that this so called company is a scam and a fraud. I am a retired Navy MP and have several ways and means to research such as this. My suggest to anyone who is harrassed and even their family by these people is to contact FTC and their attorney general and New Yorks attorney general and lodge complaints. Their address and location is the southwest corner of a empty lot next to a mental health clinic in Buuffalo.
Buffalo city has no knowledge of this company or their whereabouts.

Sub: #8 Melissa from PRG has called my mother 4 times in the past 7 days

Melissa from PRG has called my mother 4 times in the past 7 days. The last time I let her leave her threatening, completely illegal message and then I called back. Asked the receptionist (who wasn't entirely sure what company he was working for) to transfer me to Melissa. He couldn't do that without a file number. I told him not a problem and let him know he could deliver my message to Melissa. I let him know, very calmly, that Melissa had violated my rights under the FDCPA and I had reported PRG to the following agencies:
1. Better Business Bureau
2. FTC (2 times)
3. FCC
4. NY Attorney General (since they are based in Buffalo)
5. Attorney General in my state

I also let him know I had a mailing address for PRG and I was sending a Cease and Desist Letter by certified mail. The receptionist was completely quiet on the other end.

These bullies don't know what to do when confronted with someone who knows their rights and stands up for them.

No further calls yet, though my guess is they may call again to try and scare my mother with threat of me going to jail.

good for you,but seeing as any loan done through money mutual is illegal as most internet pdl's are i would never just pay some voce over the phone,but hey whatever works pal,and be prepared for another bottomfeeder,or this same one to be calling again as they found a sucker.again good for you.btw it helped me to resolve to continue to advise doing the opposite of what you did.

giving hope to the hopeless,help to the helpless,and hap to the hapless.
