I was suddenly contacted by a debt collection company for a debt that i supposedly owe. The name of the company that contacted me is “arcadia recovery bureau.” the first person who left a message demanded i call back because i owe money to someone or some company. I received anothe call from an automated robot with a recording, indicating i had to call back. When i called back to spoke with someone who refused to give his name, and was extremely rude telling me to “stop yelling” I was not yelling, although i wanted to based on his attitude). Then he asked for my address and birth year. I refused to provide it, asking him to give me the name of the company to whom i owe this supposed debt. He refused, and refused to give him name. In other words, he was phone phishing. | I informed him i was a victim of identity theft three times in two years from calls just like this one, and he still refused to give any information about who i owed the money to or his own name. And he was incredibly rude. | I called arcadia recovery bureau’s main number in california. I spoke with another agent who refused to comply with my simple question. He transferred me to 1(866) 585-1564 again, or at leats that is the number he told me he was transfering me to. This time i spoke with someone named thomas pendergraft. He was even ruder than the first person. He demanded my full name, address and full date of birth> i again refused, and explained about the identity theft situation. So i asked to please just tell me the name of the company i owed the money to. He said for security purposes, he refuesd to provide it. But meanwhile he is demanding all of this personal information from me without simply giving me a name?? | Suppose i owe $100 to dr. Adam smith. All he has to do is say, “you owe $100 to dr. Adam smith.” then, i would provide my information. But with no reference, how am i supposed to know if this is a real call or a scam? | It makes no sense. What this company is doing is a scam operation. There is no reason why a stranger should be allowed to call someone’s home and collect their information and at the same time refuse to tell you who he is. | I am blocking their number. If they read this, let them tell me to whom i owe this money. Then i’ll know they are real. I say it is a major phone phishing scam to get enough identifying information to steal your identity. | For the record, mr. Thomas pendergraft is a rude, despicable person. So far, i have spoke with three agents at arcadia recover systems. All rude, and all demanding personal information without providing anything else.
