Valentine & Kebartas Harassing Phone Calls from Local number (251)300-5452
So here’s a relatively new trick I’ve seen: out of state debt collectors using local cell numbers to call you. If you’re being hounded by debt collectors, you’ve probably learned to avoid 1-800 numbers and 1-888 numbers. But if you get a strange number with a 251 area code, you may think “What if it’s that girl I gave my number to last week?” and answer the phone. But it’s not a new romantic interest. Oh, no. It is a debt collector.
Valentine & Kebartas has been calling South Alabama residents using the phone number: 2513005452. That’s 251.300.5452.
But Valentine & Kebartas is NOT a local business. They’re not from Alabama. They’re from Massachusetts. Their principal place of business is at: 15 Union Street Lawrence , Massachusetts 01840.
Their website is www.vnkinc.com.
They have been sued for violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
They may call you and hang up when you answer. Then if you call back, a disembodied female voice asks you to enter YOUR phone number. If you don’t, it may try again. If you still don’t say anything, it may say “Thank you for calling Valentine and Kebartas.”
If you are being harassed by Valenting & Kebartas, call a REAL LOCAL FDCPA Attorney at 251.272.9148.
