Dynamic Recovery Services complaint

This company call a relative's job asking for me. She told them I did not nor did I ever work there but she was a relative. She asked them who they were and why they were calling and how they got her work number.

They said it was for a Discover Card debt I owed from 2000. She said the SOL was out on that debt. He told her he "assumed" it would be paid and he did not know if the SOL was out or not, he has to know if he is a debt collector.

debt collectors pretending to be police officers
by: Anonymous

they also pose as police officers and claim to be agents! They came to my house and said they have a warrant for my and my husbands arrest. the finance company took no responsibility for the actions of their contractors. is that legal? They went to my moms house and posed as police officers, late at night she only opened the door because she thought it was my brother in law...who is an officer. They wear police badges and everything.

Please consult a consumer law attorney as soon as possible. Debt collectors are not allowed to pretend they are law enforcement officers when they are not. Read: How to get free legal advice about debt collection.

Call from DRS
by: Anonymous

I received a call this morning from Hollywood, Florida where a woman identified herself as from something called DRS and wanted to speak to me. I asked her who she was and she said "Ms. Something". I asked what DRS was and she was vague. I politely told her that whatever she wanted, I was recording the conversation. She hung up.

I then looked up DRS and discovered that it is a collection agency, one that buys disputed debts for pennies on the dollar and then tries to collect the money "owed". Apparently they get a bit unnerved when they are being recorded, FWIW.

Scary yet unprofessional
by: Anonymous

I came back from a week's vacation to find a message on my voicemail. No company name, just a personal name (how the hell do I know who that is?) and a number. Figuring it was a scammer, I hopped onto Skype and decided to humor the company and called the number that was left. I now got a company name- Dynamic Recovery Services. Scared, I hopped onto Google to look this company up. A debt collection agency?!? I remembered an unpaid eBay fee on my account, so scared for my life and good credit, I went to eBay and paid that fee. That was yesterday. It's now 7/15/12, and I'll update this with what happens to me.

Old payday loan
by: Anonymous

Trying to collect on a payday loan from 7 years ago. Can they do that? And wanting to get a pr-paid credit card and was very rude did not want to tell me who they was or anything else.

What do i need to do?

It sounds like you may be talking to a debt collection scammer. Do not send any collector a prepaid card. You will have no proof of payment. We suggest you get as much information as you can about this company then contact your local law enforcement agency to see what they recommend.

They contacted me today using an alabama number. said very important call to call back right away as a relative was injured. called and the they claimed i owed bills i had never heard of and the number they called me at is my daughters, and she is only 12. They are bottom feeders who need to be shut down.

If a debt collector calls under false pretenses (such as saying a relative has been injured) that would very likely be an illegal collection tactic under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

They called my home this morning. asking for Mrs. Shaw. this is my mothers name. After much questioning I finally got an answer that they are a collections service. Suggested that they check before they the call as there paperwork must state my mothers age.

They said no I then informed them that she died in 1999. At the time of her death she had one credit card that had a small balance on it. I informed them she had died they asked for a copy of the death certificate as she paid for insurance on the card so if she died it would be paid.I sent them the copy and that was the end of it or so I thought. This is the first time I have heard from anyone since I sent the death certificate is this a scam?

It certainly sounds like it could be. At any rate, if you were not a cosigner on the account you aren't responsible for the debt.

you are discussing 2 different companys
by: Sarah Measey

There is a Dynamic Recovery SERVICES, which is a repossession agency and their agents do wear repossession badges and work with local law enforcement...there is a Dynamic Recovery SOLUTIONS which is a debt collection agency who calls and sends letters and generally harrasses people.

my family has dealt with the repo company and they were polite and professional with my sister, helped her clean out her car. She said the guy was wearing a repo badge and a shirt that said repo agent. He had paperwork on a clip board.

a friend of mine recently dealt with the SOLUTIONS one--which was a nightmare of ugliness by phone.

Drs office cant give info on collection
by: sanders

got a call from DRS about a debt from 2004. it is now 2014--a few days from 2015. the lady had no idea where the debt is from and said i needed to find out where it is from and call her back. if she doesn't know-how in the world would i know!! they need to have DETAILS before calling a million times. also-i thought after 7 yrs the debt was removed from credit history. the debt she is talking about is 10-almost 11 yrs ago.

You're right in your understanding that debt collectors must verify your debt if you request they do so. And it also sounds like the statute of limitations has probably expired as well. It's good that you understand your rights. If you need more information, you can Download our ebook here at no cost.

questionable practice
by: Anonymous

They called left a message called them back than they said they could not find the number I gave them but if I supplied my SS number they would be able to fix that. I did not called back 5 mins later and then they looked up the number and asked if I was and gave me a strange name I let them know that was not that person’s number.

Not sure how they get these numbers and what kind of validation they do prior to harassing people at work but they need to fix it. They are not concerned with what they do and in some cases this can cause people to lose jobs because they don't look financially solvent

This company left a voicemail saying that they were an investigator and they were serving me to recover a debt and I am being charged with fraud. Scared for my life.

Calling relatives
by: Anonymous

First, I have never heard of these people; second they called my sister and questioned her, when she questioned them, they were vague and said they would remove her number. How did they get her number in the first place? No one is safe..beware.

Debt collectors often use "skip tracing" to find debtors. It's not that hard for them to identify relatives. But a collector is not allowed to discuss an individual's debt with a third party who is not a spouse or cosigner. If this happens again we'd recommend you take notes and consider talking with an attorney.
