    I recieved a call as well.  The lady was rude and harsh.  When I asked about this supposed transaction, she said that it happened August 2004!  That was almost 4 years ago.  I closed that bank account that they said I wrote the check out of around the same time and when I asked her to tell me the account number she refused.  Well, the bank didn't even have record of me because my account was closed and there wasn't a balance left with them. I was just wondering, whatever happened with your experience?

    I just received a phone call from this company telling me of a so called transaction as well.  When I asked for a statement, they told me that they would not be sending another statement as they had already sent one and the fact that I was unorganized and didn't have it anymore wasn't their fault.  I will send a certified letter requesting one, and if they don't after that, then I guess their is nothing I can do about it.  What is with all these horrible collection agencies and the awful way they treat people?Caller ID: 651-209-1825Caller: GogginsCall Type: Debt Collector

    I have been receiving calls from that number for the past month. Usually I don't answer. When I tried calling back I heard ringing...then it sounded like someone picked up because I heard breathing. After that the line went to a message stating it was lawfirm and i should use the extension (that I didnt have) I could also leave a message. I told them they were full of s**t and hung up

    I received a call from this number from a lady who posed as an attorney and her call was related to a so-called transaction from over six years ago.  When I ask her to send me an letter stating her intended business she snapped and said that she had already sent one and was not sending another.  I told her that if she was in fact with a legitimate firm that she needed to send me a letter stating her business and that I would be happy to review it, and if necessary, get back with her.Caller ID: 651-209-1825Call Type: Debt Collector

    I received 2 calls from a Brooke Taylor who says she's a legal assistance with attorney's Goggin and Levitman (sp?). She didn't say what the call was about, just to call her at 8003906590 ext 137. Sounds like a scam because I know I don't owe anyone.

    I also received a phone call from 651-209-1825.  I was sent a letter earlier in the month.  I didn't know about the bill.  I called the phone number on the bill and told them I was irritated and mad because I didn't know about it.  She wanted me to give her checking account information on the phone at that moment but I was on my lunch break and would mail it.  I lost the letter to mail the check off so had to do research to find out who to pay.  Finally found it and called another collection phone number given to me and took care of it.  Not even two hours later this very, very rude lady called me from 651-209-1825 called and when I told her I had already taken care of it she told me that I was a liar and that she would turn it over to the attorney.  I kept trying to tell her and she kept interrupting me and called me a liar.  Then the rude lady hung up on me.  Very unprofessional.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), which prohibits debt collectors from using abusive, unfair, or deceptive practices to collect from you.Under the FDCPA, a debt collector is someone who regularly collects debts owed to others. This includes collection agencies, lawyers who collect debts on a regular basis, and companies that buy delinquent debts and then try to collect them.Here are some questions and answers about your rights under the Act.What types of debts are covered?The Act covers personal, family, and household debts, including money you owe on a personal credit card account, an auto loan, a medical bill, and your mortgage. The FDCPA doesn’t cover debts you incurred to run a business.Can a debt collector contact me any time or any place? No. A debt collector may not contact you at inconvenient times or places, such as before 8 in the morning or after 9 at night, unless you agree to it. And collectors may not contact you at work if they’re told (orally or in writing) that you’re not allowed to get calls there.How can I stop a debt collector from contacting me?If a collector contacts you about a debt, you may want to talk to them at least once to see if you can resolve the matter – even if you don’t think you owe the debt, can’t repay it immediately, or think that the collector is contacting you by mistake. If you decide after contacting the debt collector that you don’t want the collector to contact you again, tell the collector – in writing – to stop contacting you. Here’s how to do that:Make a copy of your letter. Send the original by certified mail, and pay for a “return receipt” so you’ll be able to document what the collector received. Once the collector receives your letter, they may not contact you again, with two exceptions: a collector can contact you to tell you there will be no further contact or to let you know that they or the creditor intend to take a specific action, like filing a lawsuit. Sending such a letter to a debt collector you owe money to does not get rid of the debt, but it should stop the contact. The creditor or the debt collector still can sue you to collect the debt. Can a debt collector contact anyone else about my debt?If an attorney is representing you about the debt, the debt collector must contact the attorney, rather than you. If you don’t have an attorney, a collector may contact other people – but only to find out your address, your home phone number, and where you work. Collectors usually are prohibited from contacting third parties more than once. Other than to obtain this location information about you, a debt collector generally is not permitted to discuss your debt with anyone other than you, your spouse, or your attorney.What does the debt collector have to tell me about the debt? Every collector must send you a written “validation notice” telling you how much money you owe within five days after they first contact you. This notice also must include the name of the creditor to whom you owe the money, and how to proceed if you don’t think you owe the money. Can a debt collector keep contacting me if I don’t think I owe any money? If you send the debt collector a letter stating that you don’t owe any or all of the money, or asking for verification of the debt, that collector must stop contacting you. You have to send that letter within 30 days after you receive the validation notice. But a collector can begin contacting you again if it sends you written verification of the debt, like a copy of a bill for the amount you owe.What practices are off limits for debt collectors?Harassment. Debt collectors may not harass, oppress, or abuse you or any third parties they contact. For example, they may not:    use threats of violence or harm;    publish a list of names of people who refuse to pay their debts (but they can give this information to the credit reporting companies);    use obscene or profane language; or    repeatedly use the phone to annoy someone. False statements. Debt collectors may not lie when they are trying to collect a debt. For example, they may not:    falsely claim that they are attorneys or government representatives;    falsely claim that you have committed a crime;    falsely represent that they operate or work for a credit reporting company;    misrepresent the amount you owe;    indicate that papers they send you are legal forms if they aren’t; or    indicate that papers they send to you aren’t legal forms if they are. Debt collectors also are prohibited from saying that:    you will be arrested if you don’t pay your debt;    they’ll seize, garnish, attach, or sell your property or wages unless they are permitted by law to take the action and intend to do so; or    legal action will be taken against you, if doing so would be illegal or if they don’t intend to take the action. Debt collectors may not:    give false credit information about you to anyone, including a credit reporting company;    send you anything that looks like an official document from a court or government agency if it isn’t; or    use a false company name. Unfair practices. Debt collectors may not engage in unfair practices when they try to collect a debt. For example, they may not:    try to collect any interest, fee, or other charge on top of the amount you owe unless the contract that created your debt – or your state law – allows the charge;    deposit a post-dated check early;    take or threaten to take your property unless it can be done legally; or    contact you by postcard. Can I control which debts my payments apply to? Yes. If a debt collector is trying to collect more than one debt from you, the collector must apply any payment you make to the debt you select. Equally important, a debt collector may not apply a payment to a debt you don’t think you owe.Can a debt collector garnish my bank account or my wages?If you don’t pay a debt, a creditor or its debt collector generally can sue you to collect. If they win, the court will enter a judgment against you. The judgment states the amount of money you owe, and allows the creditor or collector to get a garnishment order against you, directing a third party, like your bank, to turn over funds from your account to pay the debt. Wage garnishment happens when your employer withholds part of your compensation to pay your debts. Your wages usually can be garnished only as the result of a court order. Don’t ignore a lawsuit summons. If you do, you lose the opportunity to fight a wage garnishment.Can federal benefits be garnished?Many federal benefits are exempt from garnishment, including:    Social Security Benefits    Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Benefits    Veterans’ Benefits    Civil Service and Federal Retirement and Disability Benefits    Service Members’ Pay    Military Annuities and Survivors’ Benefits    Student Assistance    Railroad Retirement Benefits    Merchant Seamen Wages    Longshoremen’s and Harbor Workers’ Death and Disability Benefits    Foreign Service Retirement and Disability Benefits    Compensation for Injury, Death, or Detention of Employees of U.S. Contractors Outside the U.S.    Federal Emergency Management Agency Federal Disaster Assistance But federal benefits may be garnished under certain circumstances, including to pay delinquent taxes, alimony, child support, or student loans. Do I have any recourse if I think a debt collector has violated the law? You have the right to sue a collector in a state or federal court within one year from the date the law was violated. If you win, the judge can require the collector to pay you for any damages you can prove you suffered because of the illegal collection practices, like lost wages and medical bills. The judge can require the debt collector to pay you up to $1,000, even if you can’t prove that you suffered actual damages. You also can be reimbursed for your attorney’s fees and court costs. A group of people also may sue a debt collector as part of a class action lawsuit and recover money for damages up to $500,000, or one percent of the collector’s net worth, whichever amount is lower. Even if a debt collector violates the FDCPA in trying to collect a debt, the debt does not go away if you owe it.What should I do if a debt collector sues me?If a debt collector files a lawsuit against you to collect a debt, respond to the lawsuit, either personally or through your lawyer, by the date specified in the court papers to preserve your rights. Where do I report a debt collector for an alleged violation?Report any problems you have with a debt collector to your state Attorney General’s office (www.naag.org) and the Federal Trade Commission (www.ftc.gov). Many states have their own debt collection laws that are different from the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Your Attorney General’s office can help you determine your rights under your state’s law.For More InformationTo learn more about debt collection and other credit-related issues, visit www.ftc.gov/credit and MyMoney.gov, the U.S. government’s portal to financial education.The FTC works for the consumer to prevent fraudulent, deceptive, and unfair business practices in the marketplace and to provide information to help consumers spot, stop, and avoid them.

    So I just found out I won my lawsuit against these scums!!! whooo hooo!! My debt was for $300 - they tacked on over $700 in "civil penalties" (lol) refused to send me verification, very loud and rude and demeaning on the phone, called NON stop even after I sent a letter stating DONT CALL ME. yeah, so anyhow, I won my lawsuit. heres what went down- they aquired the debt- making original creditor obsolete, waiving the debt, deleting the debt from my credit files and never can resubmit it, they cant sell the debt, sending me confirmation that it is deleted from credit file, (so the debt will never show back up again!) they are also ordered to pay my attorney fees in full($2500)  as well as $5000 cash to me. Dont let them bully you! They are doing it to tooo many ppl and they need to know they cant. they violate soo many rules. this is the law firm i used- didnt cost me a PENNY!

    I worked at G & L many years ago. They are not a collection agency. They are a lawfirm that collects outstanding debts on their clients behalf. They can and do sue people all over the country (trust me on this one) They have attorney's that they work with in almost every state. If they decide to sue you, they work with an attorney in the area where you live. They do have to follow FDCPA, but they can threaten to sue you because they are a lawfirm and NOT not a collection agency.  If the debt is high enough, and they are able to verify that you work and where you work, and after checking your credit to be sure there aren't any current garnishments, child support, etc., they will sue you, if they feel that they can recover money after they get their judgement against you. If your wages are already being garnished, or if you are paying shild support that means that they would have to stand in line to collect and would be less likely to sue you. Also, if your not working....They can get a judgement against you, but won't be able to collect on the judgement as there are no wages to attach, so they aren't going to waste money on court costs and a lawsuit. I hope this helps some of you.

    I received a call from this number on my cell phone on Feb 23, 2010 at 4:21. I woman identified herself as a assistant for the attorney at Goggins, someone and someone. She explained the reason for her call and I did not dispute the debt she was calling about. She asked if I was able to pay the bill that had increased from $300 to OVER $700 by Feb 26, 2010 or it would be turned over to the attorney!! I said "no, I can't right now, and that is over double the original debt." She stated that there were "civil penalties" involved. I told her I had been out of work for over a year, (which is why the debt had not been paid to begin with), and I just accepted a job offer the previous day and will be starting on March 1. She asked if there was a family member that could borrow me the money. My response was no I don't, and if I did they would help me with more important finance issues, like my mortgage or feeding my kids. She then said, "your kids should not be as important as clearing up this debt and if my kids were important to me I would clear this up immediately!" I stated that there is no way for me to come up with over $700 by Friday and she then got irate and said that "obviously, I am not taking this seriously" and she was immediately turning it over to the attorney for prosecution! ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? No wonder everyone hates debt collectors!!

    I keep getting calls on my prepaid cell phone, threatening but I don't know what it is about.  I have requested paperwork in the past on these calls but I don't know what they want. Someone called a friend of mine about 9 mons ago, represented herself as an attorney, my friend, who works in collection, told this person not to threaten her and send documentation of this problem with me.  NOTHING....
