So Portfolio Recovery Associates has been giving me hell over some old debt. Ive got another thread going regarding the whole ordeal. They've got 2 accounts with my name on them, one of which is beyond the SOL and the other which has about 8 months left on the SOL. Im preparing on whether or not to DV them on the most current account and see what they do, then make a deal. Or just wait it out until the SOL expires and I can send a FOAD letter on both accounts. (amounts ranging, $700 - $1000) From what ive read online, its pretty hard to get PRA to do a PFD or anything like that. So I may just wait it out and see what happens as they continue to send letters and call. NOW, while im waiting is there anything that can be done about excessive calling? And does this constitute as excessive calling that can be used as a complaint or violation? These screenshots are from my Google Voice number which I have used for years as my billing telephone number. From the voicemails they left and call backs that i made to check numbers, im pretty sure these are all Portfolio Recovery Associates. From the looks of my Google Voice inbox, it looks like this has been going on for a very long time. Ive got probably about 500 calls logged in the inbox from varied numbers spread over about 2 years time. Just like the screenshots. Sometimes a couple same day, sometimes the next day then 2 days later and so on and so on. Varied but still very many. Does this constitute as excessive calling or any sort of violation? Seems a bit overboard to me. And what can I do about it? I dont ever answer this phone number but the calls have recently been coming in on my personal line. And If they start coming in at this frequency, im going to have to change my number... maybe i can use this against them?
