This number calls 6-7 times a day. Sometimes with maybe a minute between calls. It's more than a pain. I don't use DTV and I'd do without before engaging their service.

Never had DirecTV service, and if I ever catch anyone on the line and they're as condescending as the collector who commented before me, I never will.
Report by MzB Long ago Unknown
You can get rid of these calls by paying your bill!  Occasionally you'll get stuck in the system a few days after you make payment.  If you pay your bill give the system a few days before freaking out, you know the number is Directv so dont be alarmed.  If you dont have this service then its obviously wrong number.

All at least twice a day(including weekends)--I do not have any account with them(and never did and of course, never will). Intend to call the local DirectTV folks to do something. Will keep in touch here to let you know the outcome, if any.

This is a criminal extortion scam operating out of India. They are making the calls utilizing VOIP and the names of legitimate firms to make it appear the calls are originating from within the US. There is NO "company" or "debt" and you will NOT be arrested. They are harvesting and/or buying consumers' personal identifying information from unscrupulous websites like the one you may have filled out an application with, and you need to do whatever you can to protect yourself. This includes: Notifying the FTC: https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/, placing fraud alerts with all three credit bureaus, notifying your bank and employer and letting these criminals know you are aware they are attempting to extort money for a non-existent debt and have alerted the authorities.ABC News released an investigative report on this scam in June. The FTC has indicted one of its ringleaders for criminal fraud:http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/phantom-debt-co ... 16512428&page=1http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2012/08/bgm.shtm

Got a call from a Brian Smith who seems to have a very thick accent.  He informed me that he was from the US Crime Protection Fraud Center and that he needed me or my attorney to get back to him regarding fraud against a major US institution.  The one little detail that he did not know about is that I am an attorney.  I informed Mr. Smith that I was an attorney and he informed me that if I did not pay that I would be arrested and my house would be taken away.  I asked him to send me information regarding this matter so that I could take a look at it, he then informed me that he would download an arrest warrant for me.  I told him that arrest warrants are not something that you can download, they are something that needs to be awarded by a judge.  I have since called them back several times and informed them that if they attempt to contact me, that I would have them arrested for fraud and scamming private and personal information for their own gain.  If you get a phone call from 518.772.0618, get all the information that you can and report it to local law enforcement.

Phantom Debt Collectors From India Harass Americans, Demand MoneyBy BRIAN ROSS (@brianross) , CINDY GALLI and MATTHEW MOSK (@mattmosk) June 7, 2012 Hundreds of thousands of cash-strapped Americans have been targeted by abusive debt collectors operating out of overseas call centers suspected of links to organized crime in India, law enforcement officials told ABC News.The calls are part of a massive scam, one that appears to target struggling Americans -- especially those who have gone online to apply for payday loans. Armed with personal information from those pilfered applications, the threatening callers, who claim to be debt collectors poised to initiate legal action, have managed to pry loose millions of dollars from their victims -- even when the victims never owed money in the first place."This is what we call a phantom debt collection scam," said Jon Leibowitz, the chairman of the Federal Trade Commission. "It's a very pernicious and innovative new fraud."Working through call centers in India, the commission estimates that the criminals have dialed at least 2.5 million calls, persuading already cash-strapped victims to send them more than $5 million. Some have reported receiving dozens of calls per hour. They are victims like Cindy Gervais, of New Orleans, who went online for a quick loan when her husband's car was hit by a driver who didn't have insurance.Even though she paid the loan off, the so-called "phantom" debt collectors with Indian accents began calling to say she still owed money.He more or less told me that if I didn't pay, they were going to have someone on my doorstep to arrest me," she told ABC News. "And that they were going to contact my place of business, and tell them what kind of person I am."At first, she said she resisted. Then the calls became more frequent, and started to ring on her cell phone, and at the grocery distribution company where she had worked for 27 years."I was more or less was in panic mode because he told me there would be someone before noon at my place of business to arrest me and take me to jail," she said tearfully. "So I agreed to pay him."After receiving scores of complaints, investigators with the FTC said they began tracking the calls, and following the payments. They alleged the payments led them to a California company run by an Indian-American named Kirit Patel, and that such scams would not be possible without American front men."I would say that all roads of this scam, or many of the roads of this scam, lead back to Mr. Patel," said the FTC's Leibowitz.ABC News tracked Patel for weeks, from the suburbs of San Francisco to Austin, Texas.Patel refused to talk. But his lawyer, Mark Ellis, said he believes it is far too early to pass judgment on his client. Ellis, a Sacramento-based attorney, told ABC News that Patel was hired for a nominal fee to set up an American shell company, and had no idea what the call centers in India were doing."I can tell you, he was as snookered by the people in India as anybody," Ellis said. "He's a 69-year-old man who is nearing his retirement who thought all he had to do was set up some corporations and everything was on the up and up. He's completely dismayed that he has become the lightning rod of this entire problem."A close friend of Patel's also defended him in a brief interview at his home, saying Patel was not trying to defraud anyone -- he was just an unwitting, bit player in a larger scheme."If Mr. Patel was just a cog in the wheel he seems to have been a pretty big cog," Leibowitz said. "It is clear that Patel was integrally involved with this scam." Leibowitz points to thousands of pages of financial and phone records gathered by the FTC and filed as part of a civil case brought against him in the U.S. District Court in Sacramento last month. When FTC lawyers sought to freeze his assets and prevent his business from continuing to operate, Patel responded by invoking his rights against self-incrimination. His lawyer told ABC News he has had to be careful in how he responds to the allegations in civil court "because there is a potential criminal action," but that Patel maintains the allegations against him are false. Federal investigators said the phantom debt collection operation that allegedly benefitted from Patel's assistance was one of several that all trace back to the same small town in Western India called Ahmedabad. Callers use technology to make it appear that the calls originate inside the U.S. Victims provided ABC News with recordings of dozens of the calls, and many of the thickly accented callers appear to be reading off a script. "Subpoenas have been readied, and Monday morning you're going to be picked up from your home," one caller says on a victim's voicemail. "And you have children. Don't worry about your children. We have a childcare department to take care of the children." "You will be behind bars for six months," said another caller. "And once you go behind bars, you will lose your job. Once you are behind the bars, you won't get a single drop of water." William Peerce Howard, a Tampa attorney who represents victims of harassment from debt collectors, said it takes an especially twisted criminal to use threats and coercion to pry money from someone who is already struggling financially "These guys really are the most visible villains in America today," he said. "They make a living scaring people."Mark Merola, of Florida, said he just panicked when the caller told him he might be arrested at the deli where he works in a Florida retirement community. "I was nervous. I didn't want to embarrass myself, my family," he said. He used his debit card to pay the collector $576. Afterwards, he says he realized "how stupid I was." "It just happened so fast," he said. "I got scared." Leibowitz said he hopes with more attention, future potential targets of the scam will recognize red flags before they turn over any money. If callers say they are from the police, consumers should know that law enforcement officers do not collect debt for private parties. If the caller is speaking with a thick Indian accent, but calls themselves by a names such as Officer Mike Johnson, that should be a tip off. And if they're calling 40 times in two hours, that's another red flag. "Legitimate debt collectors, legitimate pay day lenders don't do those sorts of things," he said. Merola said he would like to see anyone involved in the scam prosecuted aggressively. "There's no place in society for these people," he said. http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/phantom-debt-co ... 16512428&page=2

Unfortunately there's little you can do except opt into the call blocking service from your phone provider. My phone provider allows for personal and community blacklists so few of these calls actually get thru to me. Ironically, my own telephone number is now on the list because I had someone call me spoofing my own number guessing it was an attempt to get into my voicemail, which often uses the caller ID to confirm the call is coming from you. Also, smaller VoIP providers are usually WAY ahead of the traditional POTS providers that want to nickel and dime you for features from last century.The problems are many but the big ones are: 1) loopholes in the DNC law that allows non-profits, political organizations and surveyors to call. The law is also ineffective in it's watered down state. 2) Caller ID spoofing is a serious issue and this is how these guys are getting away with it. I know of no legislation that strictly prohibits the use of caller ID spoofing (doesn't mean it's not out there, I just don't know about it). Big lobbyists for the collection agency, telemarketing and others won't allow this. The Telco's can enforce a no-spoofing fence but are unwilling to do so because they make so much money from those same groups. Bottom line is laws need to change to make this kind of thing illegal and enforce the telco's to comply and filter out spoofing. The sad sad reality is with all the money in DC and the Citizens United case, we're kinda borked.

I received several calls from this number. Was hung up on three times and cursed at after telling them I was reporting them to the police department, Microsoft, and posting on my facebook as well as every site I could find regarding this issue. They were using the Windows scam when they called me. My husband is a Signal Officer with the US Army and I asked them to call back to speak with him regarding the computer the first time. These people have very strong middle eastern accents (sounds Indian to me). I spoke with the same man 3 times and a woman once. They sounded like they were in a very noisy room full of people. They could not tell me which computer was "supposedly sending them errors" which they ABSOLUTELY would have if they were receiving error reports. When I began questioning them about the computer and informed them that my husband runs communications for his battalion in the military I was promptly hung up on with the second call and third call. This final call began with the woman (did they think i would tell her because she wasnt a man???) After telling her not to call back and that I was reporting this number to everyone she handed him the phone. He proceeded to scream and curse at me!!!!!!!!

Even if you don't answer, it will still calling you.  You can ask your phone company to block the number or put a tracer (what I did) and it won't call again.  They called me twice a day for 2 weeks.  I did the tracer thing at the beggining of this week and since then, no calls!  Good luck!

This number called me at 10pm, the phone rang after I picked it up, some lady with an accent came on. She stated that my computer had malicious viruses and it was imperative that I follow her instructions. She then prompted me to tell her what buttons were next to my ctrl button only to discover that I had Windows... she then stated that she was with Xp and Vista 7 and she was here to help. I was to press control and r; in the "open" prompt I was to type in eventvwr and press enter. When I then refused and told her that I was not comfortable. I don't know her company "BC Personal Help" she tried to appease me by giving me bogus extension, and customer care number and a big spiel about her company's reputation. I told her I would call her back and she hung up. Not only did she not have an area code based in where she said she was frustrated that I would not comply. Her name is Nancy Brown, extension 101.... I am angry that she had my name. Be weary about this scam and always take info from them, look into the company and never give out personal information. If it is "imperative" get someone to check out your computer that is from a reputable company. Also, if it sounds "fishy" then it's probably "phishy."

Answering & being peeved when no one is there is just stupid (by answering your phone & saying 'hello' you just confirmed your number is indeed a good one with a human answering AND you confirmed a good time to call as far as the spammer is concerned) . Don't answer calls where no number shows, or a bogus number shows or if caller ID shows 'UNAVAILABLE' because that means the caller is blocking his caller ID information.Just don't answer.

Others are for home security systems that tend to hang up if I answer. Some have been for debt restructurers (a service I don't need). I agree with others above that they are probably phishing for info. I have gotten to the point that when the phone rings I just ignore it. If it is important/legitimate, they can leave a message.

When you hit delete, it only sends your number back into circulation. The reps, who state they represent GE, do not represent the company.  I have been in contact with GE and they state that these are not GE employees and that they are actually scam artists trying to get your information.  GE's Fraud Division is aware and is working on the problem, however, they cannot stop the calls. I am pressing the #1 and when I get the sales rep, I am telling them that I am working on collecting all their names, and get as much info as I can, before they hang up.  They are going to know my name and they are going to know that I am fighting back.   I am also filing a report with the FCC at http://esupport.fcc.gov/complaints.htm.

My phone company (Time Warner) is supposed to be rejecting callers like this without this identifying info.

We have the right to privacy (or at least we did until the likes of the current crop of legislators and the GW Bush administration dismantled regulation of all the predatory businesses out their).Furthermore, we need to have legislation that requires every provider of phone services provide a means of blocking nuisance callers PERMANENTLY!

I just got that same phone call with the noise in the background and I made sure that I got his Name because I knew it was a scam right from the begining. The name he gave me was Mike Paterson. I don't want to be racist or anything but I doubt that was his real name because he definetely sounded foreign. As soon as I said I don't even have a PC that he said he was seeing the signal from he immediately hung up the phone. Tried to call back and the number isn't in service.

Unfortunately there's little you can do except opt into the call blocking service from your phone provider. My phone provider allows for personal and community blacklists so few of these calls actually get thru to me. Ironically, my own telephone number is now on the list because I had someone call me spoofing my own number guessing it was an attempt to get into my voicemail, which often uses the caller ID to confirm the call is coming from you. Also, smaller VoIP providers are usually WAY ahead of the traditional POTS providers that want to nickel and dime you for features from last century.The problems are many but the big ones are: 1) loopholes in the DNC law that allows non-profits, political organizations and surveyors to call. The law is also ineffective in it's watered down state. 2) Caller ID spoofing is a serious issue and this is how these guys are getting away with it. I know of no legislation that strictly prohibits the use of caller ID spoofing (doesn't mean it's not out there, I just don't know about it). Big lobbyists for the collection agency, telemarketing and others won't allow this. The Telco's can enforce a no-spoofing fence but are unwilling to do so because they make so much money from those same groups. Bottom line is laws need to change to make this kind of thing illegal and enforce the telco's to comply and filter out spoofing. The sad sad reality is with all the money in DC and the Citizens United case, we're kinda borked.

I received several calls from this number. Was hung up on three times and cursed at after telling them I was reporting them to the police department, Microsoft, and posting on my facebook as well as every site I could find regarding this issue. They were using the Windows scam when they called me. My husband is a Signal Officer with the US Army and I asked them to call back to speak with him regarding the computer the first time. These people have very strong middle eastern accents (sounds Indian to me). I spoke with the same man 3 times and a woman once. They sounded like they were in a very noisy room full of people. They could not tell me which computer was "supposedly sending them errors" which they ABSOLUTELY would have if they were receiving error reports. When I began questioning them about the computer and informed them that my husband runs communications for his battalion in the military I was promptly hung up on with the second call and third call. This final call began with the woman (did they think i would tell her because she wasnt a man???) After telling her not to call back and that I was reporting this number to everyone she handed him the phone. He proceeded to scream and curse at me!!!!!!!!

I was to press control and r; in the "open" prompt I was to type in eventvwr and press enter. When I then refused and told her that I was not comfortable. I don't know her company "BC Personal Help" she tried to appease me by giving me bogus extension, and customer care number and a big spiel about her company's reputation. I told her I would call her back and she hung up. Not only did she not have an area code based in where she said she was frustrated that I would not comply. Her name is Nancy Brown, extension 101.... I am angry that she had my name. Be weary about this scam and always take info from them, look into the company and never give out personal information. If it is "imperative" get someone to check out your computer that is from a reputable company. Also, if it sounds "fishy" then it's probably "phishy."

I pressed 1 just to see where it would go and request their Do Not Call Policy which they're required to provide by request at no cost to the consumer.  When the man said, "Are you responding to our offer to lower our credit?" I replied, "Uh, no, you were calling me."  I guess he didn't like my response, because then he hung up.  I called back immediately.  Goes to an automated message saying that the person you have called is unavailable, please try again later.
