Consumer Complaint: This company called Portfolio Recovery has continued to harass me about debts from closed accounts that were the result of identify theft that happen over 15 years ago. A police report was filed when my wallet was stolen and everything had been taken care of at that time and the accounts closed, but in recent months this company seemed to have ran my social security number for debts I have informed them that I do not owe and have possibly put them back on my credit reports which I now need to check. They also made a call to me a few minutes ago which was after XXXX XXXX Eastern time which I know is not legal and made continued calls to me while Im at work and late hours using different phones numbers that show on my caller ID coming from different states. Although I have continued to tell them these accounts are not mine and they could not collect from accounts from thar long ago they have continued to call almost every day and sometimes 2 or 3 times a day from different numbers for over 6 months now. Tonight was just too much and just all I can put up with and I felt I needed to file this complaint. Also there is another account they have been trying to collect from, but their was not a link or room to list an additional account Portfolio recovery is trying to collect for. It is from XXXX that is over 15 years as well. Your assistance would greatly be appreciated.
