Portfolio Recovery Won't Stop Calling For Ex

(Jonesboro ga. usa)

Portfolio Recovery keeps harassing me about my ex-husbands capitol one account that is fourteen years old and we have been divorced since 1998.
When i tell them that he does not live here and to stop calling they continue to call and tell me that i need to pay the bill then the phone calls will stop.

I have explained to them that he disputed that bill with the creditor and it was a fraudulent account back in 1997 and stop calling me they still call once a week. Even though i gave them my ex's phone number because he wont talk to them they call me he lives in sauk centre mn i live in jonesboro ga

Harrassed every DAY!
by: Anonymous

Portfolio Recovery calls EVERYDAY and sometimes twice a day for about three years now and sends by mail for something dated over 10 years ago that I am not even familiar with. I have asked and even told them to stop calling but they just keep on. I don't even answer the phone anymore, I know about the time of day they call so I don't even bother with it but, it is just awful that they get away with doing this. I paid my price of not having any good credit, I know that the lenders got their kick backs from the government, (business loss, tax write-off) I am so sorry I didn't make good on an old debt but I also know there is a statue of limitations and we should not be harassed or punished by this company who bought into old bad debts... LOL You don't go to market and buy an age old banana and expect anything from it after a couple of days, EEEEW!

Repeated calls for old debt
by: DebtCollectionAnswers.com

You raise a number of potentially questionable practices, including the fact that this debt is probably outside the statute of limitations, they keep calling you though you've told them to stop, etc.

Please go ahead and talk with a consumer law attorney. You can talk with a consumer law attorney with experience in debt collection cases. Learn how to get low cost or FREE legal help with your debt collection problem here.
