Portfoliorecov Scam Calls from Different Telephone Numbers - Portfolio Recovery

Portfoliorecov Scam Calls from Different Telephone Numbers - Portfolio Recovery

I am constantly getting calls supposedly from a Portfoliorecov (Portfolio Recovery). They have been harassing me about a "debt" that is not mine. The callerID says Portfoliorecov, but different telephone numbers from different states. They never leave a message. I think they are spoofing the display ID and random digit Robo dial so blocking is useless.

If anyone knows anything about the Portfoliorecov call, please leave in it a comment below. And, if you have received a Portfoliorecov call, please share your experience in a comment below. Include the telephone number the call came from.

    Why do they have to confirm my name, address, and phone #? Shouldn't they know who they're talking to?

  • August 23, 2023 at 9:19 AM by an anonymous user from: Ashburn, Virginia, United States

    I’m a minor with no debt and they call me multiple times a day every day from a different number each time and leave no message

  • August 21, 2023 at 5:20 AM by an anonymous user from: Bellflower, California, United States

    I've been getting these annoying calls for a few months now as well, I ignore them all. They call anywhere from once a day to once every other day from various spoofed numbers. I know for a fact that I don't owe any debts, yet they constantly call. They may stop for about a week before they resume their spam calls. If they don't stop calling by the end of this month, I'm definitely going to file a complaint with the CFPB in the hopes they take stricter actions against this corrupt debt collection agency. Hopefully the CFPB puts them out of business Because Portfolio recovery associates is corrupt. On every review site, they have a 1 star rating with nothing but complaints about their shady debt collection practices. Is that not enough to add Portfolio Recovery to the FTC's banned debt collector list?

    Portfolio recovery is notorious for calling the wrong number because they are debt buyers(worst kind of debt collector), which means they often buy old debts and get outdated Information. So they may try to collect a debt that is over 10 years(past the statute of limitations)old and the only info they have is a phone number, name and the amount supposedly owed. Many times the number they spam call no longer belongs to the person who owes the debt, that's why they often call the wrong person who doesn’t owe anything because the phone number has a new owner. Another reason they call the wrong person is because when they buy the debt, the data gets corrupted. So they may be calling for a "John Smith" but instead they call a "John Miller". And the worst part is that they are too incompetent and corrupt to acknowledge their mistakes.

    The good news is that Portfolio Recovery's whole business appears to be in shambles, the CFPB ordered them to pay 24 million dollars a few months ago after they once again busted them for their illegal debt Collection practices. And one by one they are closing their offices around the country, they are set to close one of their newer offices in Virginia by October 2023. Good riddance.

  • June 20, 2023 at 2:36 PM by an anonymous user from: Kansas City, Kansas, United States

    I also receive these calls, in fact almost daily. I don't answer those idiots and here are some of the recent numbers.






  • May 23, 2023 at 4:03 PM by an anonymous user from: Germantown, Maryland, United States

    Me too, phone is not in my name,they started last year, dont owe anything, neither does my husband. I had to look online to see who they were, I thought they got sued for that

  • May 4, 2023 at 7:10 PM by an anonymous user from: Laingsburg, Michigan, United States

    Ya I get 4 a week, fr these idiot scammers.. tried t call a 866 # once they had recorded message, that’s it. I don’t have debt either how they got my no. Don’t know…

  • March 30, 2023 at 3:57 PM by an anonymous user from: Richardson, Texas, United States

    Same here. 20 different numbers...none legitimate Portfolio Recovery.

    I have no debt with excellent credit rating.

    Scam all the way

    • April 18, 2023 at 3:33 PM by an anonymous user from: Redmond, Washington, United States

      Turn on Silence Unkown Callers feature on your phone. It will send these scammers to voicemail every time.

  • March 30, 2023 at 1:04 PM by an anonymous user from: Lake Elsinore, California, United States

    Same here. I just got a new phone, new number and Portfoliorecov called me 4 times a week.

    I didn't answer the phone. SCAMMER

  • March 17, 2023 at 5:17 PM by an anonymous user from: Laingsburg, Michigan, United States

    Ya they r calling me from all these #s like robots.. I owe nobody so I guess I’m on the list from h**l ..? Rediculous

  • March 10, 2023 at 1:58 PM by an anonymous user from: Bayview, San Francisco, California, United States

    To clarify, the call from PORTFOLIORECOV (no Y) from different numbers, no message is NOT coming from Portfolio Recovery. It's coming from a call center in India or Pakistan using a robodialer. If you answer, you'll be talking to a scammer.

  • March 10, 2023 at 1:54 PM by an anonymous user from: Bayview, San Francisco, California, United States

    About 4 calls per week from different toll free (866 area code) numbers. No message. If it really was a debt collector you would (1) get a voicemail message (2) have received documentation in writing of what they're collecting.

    So, 100% scam.

    The fact that they're spoofing PORTFOLIO RECOVERY (but missing the last Y) means that doing this is working. In other words, more people are answering the phone with this caller ID than without it. So, don't answer the phone.

  • March 10, 2023 at 12:39 PM by an anonymous user from: Ashburn, Virginia, United States

    I have recieved over 40 calls from Portfolio in the past year. They call my cell phone which gives them the option to leave a message. Which they do not. I have zero debt all my bills are paid in full within the day. Most of my bills are paid on line the same day it is posted. I block the number but with a few days they call back with a different number. Pretty certain it is a robocaller.

    • March 13, 2023 at 8:13 PM by an anonymous user from: Ashburn, Virginia, United States

      yes me too. I have gotten hundreds of calls labeled portfoliocov but they are all from different numbers so blocking some as it comes is not working. there is no way for me to block every number they use

  • March 1, 2023 at 7:51 AM by an anonymous user from: Columbus, Ohio, United States

    call from Portfoliorecov 1-866-454-120 I have no debt! Im sure its a scam!

  • February 27, 2023 at 4:28 PM by an anonymous user from: Laingsburg, Michigan, United States

    Ya I see they call me all the time with a sham #.

    Don’t know I have no collected so I’m sure it’s scam, I never answer but t don’t leave messages either…. Someone needs t shut them down…

  • February 26, 2023 at 9:39 AM by an anonymous user from: Redmond, Washington, United States

    I owe no debt. Yet portfolio recovery keeps calling me on my cell. I never give out my cell number. Don’t know how they got it. They never leave a message and it’s always a different number that calls. Also my credit score has dropped.why? These people are very unprofessional. Why haven’t they tried to send me a letter to make them legitimate. It amazes me how companies go after innocent victims of fraud. Shame on portfolio recovery.

  • February 25, 2023 at 12:14 PM by an anonymous user from: Oakhurst, California, United States

    I have recieved over 40 calls from them from different phone numbers. I am sick of these calls...I keep blocking but it's a loosing battle.

  • February 23, 2023 at 7:53 PM by an anonymous user from: Centre, Alabama, United States

    Same for me! Insane.

  • February 23, 2023 at 4:54 PM by an anonymous user from: Houston, Texas, United States

    I don’t owe anything and they call me all the time. I have never answered them because it is a spam call and I block ever single one but they just won’t leave me alone. I have had like 6 different one try to call me. These are the phone numbers- 832 307 8106 / 832 336 0114/ 832 684 961 /832 841 2759 / 832 220 4684 / 832 532 5297

  • February 10, 2023 at 3:30 PM by an anonymous user from: Richmond, Virginia, United States

    Same here - I pay my bills and getting tired of these calls.

  • January 30, 2023 at 1:57 PM by an anonymous user from: Southampton Township, New Jersey, United States

    Same here, constant calls from multiple phone numbers. PORTFOLIORECOV all in caps with a blue check mark next to their phone # saying it is a "verified phone #" No message ever left, nothing ever received in the mail.

    The company is 1000% SCAM. In 2020 I was purchasing a home and was very confident with my credit score and history. When the mortgage company did their credit check, they advised I had a judgment held by Portfolio Recovery. I knew it was not a legitimate debt. Didn't show up on my credit report but was logged as a judgment with a local NY Court. This was during the height of COVID. I called the court and they had no one working to help me. My mortgage company was getting anxious, seller was anxious and I was anxious, afraid of losing house. I got a copy of the alleged judgment, knew PR was trying to collect on an old account. I tried to get the mortgage company to understand the paperwork PR sent and point out the illegality but they stood firm I had to fix it. In the end I settled for 50% payment only to protect my home purchase. Portfolio Recovery is known to most lawyers as the scum of the scum. There are a couple of things you can do. If they call RECORD conversation. If they claim you owe money ask them and also have them send ALL paperwork. Most of the time PR is buying bad debts for next to nothing and starts their harassment campaign. Ask them to confirm with the appropriate paperwork so you can see what they're looking for. By law they have to send you proof of the original debt. If they bought it from Macy's or Target for instance. There must be a document confirming the company sold the debt to PR. If it was with another collector before, there must be documenting original debt, sale to x*x per second and agreement debt was sold again now to Portfolio. They never have all the paperwork. Also contact the BBB in your state, your state attorney General, consumer advocacy agency in DC, Federal Trade Commission and any other party governing these transactions. I know you wanted info about them constantly calling. That's minor compared to their relentless collection tactics. So I'm putting out this info proactively. Also check AVVO.COM. it's a legit website to ask about PR and with a little detail in question, various lawyers will answer your question for FREE. Then if you want their service you deal with the lawyer who gave the best and honest answer. I wish all of you the best outcome with these thieves. And Google them to get more info and ammo on them

  • January 23, 2023 at 4:37 PM by an anonymous user from: Ashburn, Virginia, United States

    Portfolio recovery has been calling my house number, very often from different phone numbers. No message is left. I would like Portfolio recovery to stop calling my phone number

  • January 21, 2023 at 11:48 AM by an anonymous user from: Hartford, Connecticut, United States

    They never speak if I answer, and the line goes dead. If I let it go to voicemail, they play a recording that doesn't sound like a live person at all, saying "hello can you hear me" or "hello?, HELLO!"

  • January 17, 2023 at 11:49 AM by an anonymous user from: Atlanta, Georgia, United States

    I have received calls from "portfoliorecov", from different numbers. I have no debt (at least none unpaid!), and no, they do not leave a voicemail. I wish I could block the NAME from calling me, but there's no way that I see. I keep blocking the numbers they are calling from, but that's not stopping them.

  • January 15, 2023 at 11:27 AM by an anonymous user from: Loudoun, Ashburn, Virginia, United States

    If the call was legitimate, they should have left a msg.

    And if was a proper debt, they should have sent you something in writing.

    The numerous calls from so many different numbers just shows that someone is trying to scam you.

  • January 6, 2023 at 2:30 PM by an anonymous user from: Loudoun, Ashburn, Virginia, United States

    Any legitimate contact should come to me via the United States Postal Service.

    That's the way most legitimate agencies will contact me.

    I will not respond to your phone calls,and, why are they sent from so many different phone numbers?

  • December 10, 2022 at 9:44 AM by an anonymous user from: Viera, Melbourne, Florida, United States

    This company phones me everyday. Their phone number is always different. A few times I picked up the phone but all I heard was a deafening screeching sound.

  • December 7, 2022 at 2:30 PM by an anonymous user from: Downtown Redmond, Redmond, Washington, United States

    I am getting calls from these people also and no messages being left. Has anyone gotten letters from them? Is there any way to get them to stop? I don't want to answer their calls because this might just make them call more.

  • December 6, 2022 at 4:34 PM by an anonymous user from: Palmerton, Pennsylvania, United States

    I get calls all the time from them with different numbers each time. I never answer. Numbers not saved in my phone will be sent straight to voice mail. They never leave messages

  • December 2, 2022 at 12:15 PM by an anonymous user from: Los Angeles, California, United States

    I've received 2 calls from Portfoliorecov and I answered the second one. They tried to collect a debt from 2005 from a Capital One credit card I had. I filed for bankruptcy in 2010 so all my debts were taken care of at that time. My credit report is showing that it's completely clear and I'm working on building up my credit again. Both calls are from different numbers.

  • November 7, 2022 at 8:49 PM by an anonymous user from: New York, New York, United States

    Portfoliorecov has been calling every day, late afternoon. I picked up once but no one was there the other mirning they called over & over repeatedly for the entire morning. And now my phone no longer works! The ringer stopped working & the answering machine seems to have brain damage.

  • October 25, 2022 at 5:35 PM by an anonymous user from: Carlsbad, California, United States

    we've gotten these calls from "Portfolio recovery" for over a year now on my husbands cell. We have no outstanding debts and they never leave a message. its always different phone numbers they're calling from, from all different states. When I do a reverse search, portfolio recovery NEVER comes up! Plus we have NEVER gotten any mail from any debt collectors, so its definitely a scam!

  • October 25, 2022 at 2:43 PM by an anonymous user from: Lee County, Bonita Springs, Florida, United States

    Same for my experience. Different numbers, no message(s) left.

  • October 24, 2022 at 5:47 PM by an anonymous user from: DeKalb, Atlanta, Georgia, United States

    Same situation. Always from different numbers so blocking does not help. Always in caps PORTFOLIORECOV. Annoying.

  • October 20, 2022 at 4:09 PM by an anonymous user from: Baltimore, Maryland, United States

    They called me from different numbers I don't even say hello I just say please get rid of this number. I even put number on do not call list

  • October 20, 2022 at 3:45 PM by an anonymous user from: Ventura, Camarillo, California, United States

    It's CONSTANT! New numbers every day, I block then all, yet they still come. So much for SPAM blocking

  • October 17, 2022 at 3:54 PM by an anonymous user from: Ashburn, Virginia, United States

    I get phone calls every day from Portfolio Recovery for a debt that the courts ruled in my favor. We owe them nothing. Been going on for a few years. Last call was from 1 717 556 5070. I get other calls from many different are codes. I block them. I do not want to write any darn letter. Make them stop.

  • October 8, 2022 at 7:50 AM by an anonymous user from: Spartanburg, South Carolina, United States

    When I get some time, I’ll answer one of those calls and get the details.

    I receive a call from them once a day. I generally pick up and hang up immediately. When I don’t, they never leave a message.

    Recording the numbers they use is ok, but with today's technology, they could make it look like I’m calling myself.

    Cellular carriers really need to crack down hard on this type of service abuse. It’s been a problem for far too long.

  • October 7, 2022 at 9:16 AM by an anonymous user from: Denton, Lewisville, Texas, United States

    Same experience, we have no outstanding debt. I have never answered nor do I plan to. I just keep blocking.

  • October 4, 2022 at 1:12 PM by an anonymous user from: Wright Area, Santa Rosa, California, United States

    also getting calls from

    "Portfoliorecov" (510) 999-7324 Hayward, CA

    "Portfoliorecov" (713) 280-3002 Houston, TX

    "Portfoliorecov" (307) 200-2517 Jackson, WY

    "Portfoliorecov" (716) 608-2003 Buffalo, NY


    "Portfolio Recvy" (516) 260-6008 Garden City, NY

    plus some previous calls from "Portfoliorecov" I deleted so lost the record of those numbers/locations.

    I do not answer ANY of them, but since these are to a mobile phone I can send a generic "cannot talk now" reply, which I do, and my phone logs the call date, time and location plus the number.

    These calls have never left a message

  • September 14, 2022 at 4:08 PM by an anonymous user from: Downtown Redmond, Redmond, Washington, United States

    I have experiencing the same as well

  • September 13, 2022 at 9:22 PM by an anonymous user from: Central Business District, Cincinnati, Ohio, United States

    This is 100% some kind of scam. I have no unpaid or late debt. We pay everything on time or early. Our credit is excellent. This scam company has called every day multiple times per day for 3 months. It was getting to the point where multiple times per day I'd go to just check my email on my phone and it would be ringing from this company. It was borderline harassment. I had already spoke to a lawyer when I finally spoke to someone here. After 2 people hanging up on me, one said they must have had "the wrong number." The wrong number multiple times per day? 100s of calls? I don't think so. These are scam artists.

  • September 13, 2022 at 2:48 PM by an anonymous user from: Little Mahanoy Township, Dornsife, Pennsylvania, United States

    I also get incessant calls from "Portfoliorecov" or "Portfolio Recovery" from dozens of different numbers and area codes. They do not stop calling (sometimes 7 times in a row) nor do they leave a voice mail. Check your credit reports if you really want to know if you have an outstanding debt, do not answer these locusts.

  • September 6, 2022 at 7:21 PM by an anonymous user from: Chaffee County, Buena Vista, Colorado, United States

    Same. Tried blocking but as mentioned previously, they use other numbers.

  • September 3, 2022 at 5:15 PM by an anonymous user from: Orange, Chester, New York, United States

    I also constantly receive calls from PORTFOLIORECOV literally all the time

  • September 3, 2022 at 3:37 PM by an anonymous user from: Downtown Redmond, Redmond, Washington, United States

    Same thing happening to Me as well.

  • September 3, 2022 at 8:16 AM by an anonymous user from: Baltimore (City), Baltimore, Maryland, United States

    I just got a call from 907-519-7373 and it says Portfoliorecov. No message left!

  • August 28, 2022 at 12:20 PM by an anonymous user from: Sunbury Township, Budd, Illinois, United States

    I have been experiencing the same situation
