First Source Advantage Collection Agency

by Donald Petersen on January 15, 2011

(800) 430-7345 or 800-430 7345

(222) 222-4028 or 222-222-4028

(407) 323-2954 or 407-323-2954

First Source Advantage apparently uses the following numbers as return telephone numbers :

(866) 798-7783 or 866-798-7783

I provide information concerning collection agencies to assist consumers in their on-line search for information. When I do so, I am not stating or implying anything about how the collection agency collects debts.

Firstsource Solutions Limited, Firstsource Advantage, LLC’s parent corporation, is a business processing outsourcing company based in India. Much of FirstSource Advantage’s operations are based in India. First Source Advantage’s business includes debt collection. Firstsource Solutions Limited is publicly traded in India.

On March 31, 2012, Firstsource Advantage, LLC filed an Annual Report with the Florida Division of Corporations stating that the company’s headquarter’s address is :

205 Bryant Woods South
Amherst, New York 14228

The company’s legal name is “Firstsource Advantage, LLC” rather than “First Source”. Firstsource Advantage, LLC is a limited liability company registered with the State of New York on April 27, 1995. Firstsource Advantage, LLC is a subsidiary of Firstsoucre Solutions Limited. Firstsource Solutions Limited employs over 10,000 people worldwide including in India, the United States, and the United Kingdom. First Source Advantage’s website is : http://www.firstsource (which is a “.com”).

Firstsource Advantage, LLC registered with the Division of Corporations of the Florida Secretary of State to transact business in Florida on January 18, 2008. According to Firstsource’s registation with the Florida Secretary of State, the “[n]ature of businesses or purposes to be conducted or promoted in Florida” is “debt collection via telephone and mail.”

FirstSource is licensed to collect consumer debts in the State of Florida. Firstsource Collections’ Indian parent has stated that Firstsource collects as first party and third party. (“First Party” means that a collection agency or its affiliate purchased the account.)

Although Firstsource Advantage has registered with the Florida Secretary of State to do business in Florida, Firstsource does not sue Florida consumers. Nor am I aware of Firstsource suing consumers who reside in any other state.

During the period beginning January 1, 2010, and ending December 31, 2011, Firstsource Advantage was sued in approximately 144 lawsuits in federal courts which alleged that Firstsource Advantage, LLC violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

We will attempt to verify the numbers and add them to our list.

You are also welcome to call my office. If you live in Florida, I will contact you to discuss your rights and how I may be able to help you.

They’ve called me a few times every day for at least a month from a local number near me, 512-487-7384, without their name listed in caller id. I *67′ed them to find out who they were. A guy named Robert rudely asked me who I was looking for. I asked who they were and he said First Source Advantage. I told him just wondering who called me and hung up. I’m in-between jobs at the moment so didn’t discuss anything.

First Source Advantage Collection Agency.

They keep calling for someone we have never heard of, and has never worked here. We have asked them to stop, but the calls have continues for 4 months. Often they call and hang up when we answer.

Person is rude to my employees. Why they are wasting their clients’ money chasing wrong leads is beyond me. I’d never do business with them.

I settled a Bank of America debt with Firstsource Advantage and they withdrew the money from my account, then the next day the amount was returned! I was given an 877 number but have misplaced it. I can’t find the same number anywhere online, now I know why! I need to figure out what is going on with my debt though. There was no reason why they should have returned the money.

First, I’ll start by saying the number they had when calling me was 866-515-7458. Here is my story. This company began calling me at work, my cell, my home AND my father. I had told them to not call my home, work or cell again (this was prior to me know they’d called my father) If they call your work after that, they are breaking the law. If you send them a cease and assist letter to stop contacting you they are NOT to call you again BUT can still go after you to collect any debt you owe. When they started calling me incessively, my attorney told me to give them their information & advise we’re filing bankruptcy. After I’d done this we received a letter in the mail from them regarding the debt and the letter was dated the same day they were given my atty information. We’ve now won a settlement against this company for breaking the law. KNOW YOUR RIGHTS and contact an attorney if they keep bothering you. You may be able to go after them for a money settlement as well!!!

My caller ID identified a Brandon Hiatt calling from (219) 510-4737.
First of all I have no idea who or why he was calling me. When asking who was calling and why he became rude, aggressive and gave no information. I called back to speak to a manager and was sidestepped with saying they couldn’t know who made the call. I did find out through this lady that the company was First Source Advantage. He called again today after I had told him not to call me again. I’m in a customer service industry and have no idea how one like this is chosen to deal with the public. I told him that this call is being recorded and that one more call and I would go to the police.

this guy called me on my ex-wifes debt with Mercedes. he says I am not calling regarding your Mercedes, I am calling on your ex-wife. He called the ex-wife and told her that I have a new Mercedes so I have the moeny to pay off her debt. I confronted this clown who said he can no longer talk with me and hangs up. I will contact a debt collection attorney in CA for invasion of my privacy! Maybe I can ge this Bryan ass to pay off my mercedes.

I also spoke with Mr O’Connel. He didn’t have the decency to even call my by my proper name- unprofessional. He called a number that was NOT listed as a contact #, never informed me that it was a debt collection agency and all info was for that purpose, etc, and became exceedingly rude when I told him that I had found out that they were unlawful and involved in scamming lawsuits. I would love to jump on the bandwagon to dismantle this joker.

I have been receiving these calls for months. Unfortunately my credit is wonderful and they are looking for my brother to whom I have not spoken to in years. How can I stop them from harassing me just because I still have a phone number that works? I never signed on to be anyone’s reference or co signer. My credit is clear!

Got a call from a “Jeff” from 716-213-4502 asking for my husband and telling him to return this “important, confidential call.” The number he said to call back is 888-267-5214. This happened a couple of years ago, there is a man with the same name as my husband’s and a similar (believe it or not) social security number who had an AMEX account that was sent to them. Both AMEX and the credit rating agencies confirmed it wasn’t my husband (he’s never had an AMEX card), but the collection agency keeps calling, as well as selling their list to other collections agencies, even though we told them it wasn’t my husband. I wish we could get this harassment to stop, since it has nothing to do with us. It’s as if they think if they keep harassing us, we’ll send them some money anyway.

Don Petersen August 17, 2011 at 2:14 PM

Gina – Thanks for sharing your story. You might be surprised how common similar names and SSN’s are. Although I have not observed F.S.A. reporting accounts, whether a third party collection agency reports an account to the credit reporting agencies is usually addressed in the collection agreement concerning the account portfolio. So, your husband should obtain all three of his credit reports directly from each of the three bureaus. (He is entitled to free credit reports every 365 days without any other special circumstances.)

Christopher January 24, 2013 at 4:42 PM

Gina,

My uncle married a lady with the same first and middle name as his sister. When my aunt by blood died, some companies dealt with that fine. The collection vultures came in, though, and some actually had the audacity to accuse my aunt by marriage of faking documents and committing fraud to skip out on debts.

First Source has called me at least 20 times within the last 3 weeks. Most the time I am at work when they call because I work a night shift. I have all the times, dates, and how many times they called and all of the recordings they left. I was wondering if I can take them to court for harassing me?

Reply

Don Petersen January 19, 2012 at 2:09 PM

David :

You are wise to save the messages. The “call volume” cases are usually quite weak compared to most other FDCPA cases. I recommend that you consult with a local lawyer to review the call logs and listen to the messages. These cases turn on specific facts and are also influenced by the court you are in and any applicable state law. That’s another reason why I recommend consulting with a FDCPA lawyer who maintains an office in your state. Good Luck, Don Petersen

I continue to get calles from a very rude Indian man named Malish (sp?) who insists on me giving him bank account numbers and routing numbers so that a debt can be settled. I don’t even know why this company got my acct as it is an American Express Card account that I had been paying regularly and even more than the minimum payment each and every month. The account balance to date is $0 as I have paid American Express off yet this company continues to call me. I have asked them not to call me at work as I cannot get personal calls there, yet they continue to call in excess of 4-5 times a day at the office and the same amount of calls per day to my cell phone. He is very rude, demanding, does not listen to what you are saying. He even went so far as to say that he had control over whether or not he would approve me getting another American Express Card in the future, if I did not give him financial information he would not approve. Very threatening.

This agency had contacted me about settleing my debt from chase and of course [the caller told me that] i had that debt to settle. And i wanted to pay since now i started to work. I paid in full but when i called back to make sure i get a confirmation letter sent to my address. I called and it was a regular cell phone number and that was really strange to me. I went online and found all these complaints. So i found phone numbers and called them and they always hung up on me. So i went to chase and told them what was going on and they found out where my debt was sent to and it was NOT by Firstsource. I filed a claim dispute from my bank and chase gave me a social security hotline number to alert my social number since they have that infomation. Im planning to carry on with more legal actions abd sue them.

Don Petersen September 24, 2012 at 10:53 AM

Thanks for sharing about what happened to you. It is possible that a rogue collector accessed your credit report, read that you owed Chase on a delinquent account, and then called you from a personal cell phone. First Source Advantage routinely sends dunning letters. If you did not receive a dunning letter from First Source, it’s likely that the caller has nothing to do with First Source. You were wise to contact Chase. I recommend that consumers do not pay any amounts to debt collectors when they have not received a letter from the debt collector and, if they intend to pay off the account, insist on a pay off letter or letter documenting the payment plan to fight against subsequent debt collectors. You should consult with a local consumer lawyer and ask them about “locking down” your credit reports.

Add these numbers to your list. They called me from 716-564-4370 asking for my father who is 87 and lives in an assisted living facility. I mistakenly told them that but did not give them his number or tell them anything more. I had a car in my father’s name I had payed off recently, and my number was on that payment account. They said they cannot tell me anything more about why they are calling without me first faxing them a letter showing me to have power of attorney for my father. They gave me this number to call them back: 855-800-3145. I’m ignoring for now, but if they keep harassing me I will take legal action. These people should be stopped! Do NOT send them money or give out your account number!

This company tracked down my new number after I changed it. Since I changed it, about a year ago, has called over 250 times. The few times I did answer, they hung up on me.
I finally got a voicemail, with a new number (that is listed) telling me to call them with a 1800 number with a reference number. This is also the same company that refused me to make a payment plan but to pay in full. I’ve never dealt with a debt collection company that refuses payments. Honestly, if you guys want me to contact you–speak proper english in the voicemail so I can understand what number or website I need to go to to settle this.

Good Lord, these people are unbelievably dense. It took them ten minutes for them to admit they called the wrong person.

They called my house, and my wife gave them my office number (she thought it might have been a business call, since they don’t really identify themselves). Before they would talk about anything they demanded I give them my entire birth date (not a chance). I told them “when hell freezes over”. Apparently they don’t use that phrase in India–I had to explain it to them. I also told them I wanted to talk to their supervisor. It turned out that they were looking for someone with a name similar to mine, but living in Harrisburg PA –which is about 100 miles west of where I am. They went through four addresses, none of which were ever mine, and they were still demanding my full birth date until I started talking about the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. That, at least, got their attention. Like talking to a barn door…

David, who represents First Source Advantage, LLC called from this number twice to my cell phone (while at work) requesting a chat with my father (who I know for sure, owes nada). I called them back the second time only to hear their phone support/office assistant pick up the line. I requested to speak to David concerning my father and they insisted on asking me to verify my father’s social security number. Eff that! Usually an address or possibly a date of birth is inquired.

I’m still trying to figure out how they got a hold of my number to request such info…my guess is it was through a loop of third party organizations. So I gave them my father’s cell phone so he could smell what’s cooking. Something’s up and we’re prepared to sue if need be!

Today they wanted to set up an auto-deduction from my checking account and it became clear they are not American Express. What happens if I don’t pay them??

Reply

Donald Petersen April 21, 2013 at 5:42 PM

Jodi – The decision whether or not to pay a debt collector depends upon many facts including the identity of the original creditor, age of the alleged debt,
type of account, state where the consumer lives, whether the account was a “consumer” account, and MANY other facts. Ultimately, the decision often boils down to uninformed consumers collapsing to debt collectors’ abuse or simply being easily intimidated. The consumer gripe sites are full of misinformation and one state fits all legal advice rendered by non-lawyers. So, I highly recommend that consumers contact a consumer rights attorney who maintains an office in their state. The Florida consumers who contact me are often pleasantly surprised by the rights that they do have and my availability to help them often on a contingency fee basis. You should talk to a lawyer in your state because you may have much to gain and nothing to loose.

A foreign man keeps calling my cell every day, it starts about 8:30-9:00 a.m. and will continue to call several times a day. I have spoken with him and he wants me to verify personal info for him (which I refuse to) and he laughs at me while I explain to him that I will not give my personal info (birthday, address, S.S.# or anything). I precede to tell him to stop calling me and, of course, (I have used some pretty strong language with him which is very rare for me to do, but a person can only be pushed so far) he says he will stop calling me when I verify my info for him (which I never will). He keeps asking me who he’s speaking with…I tell him to tell me who he’s speaking with because he called me…haha! He keeps insisting so I told him he’s talking to the Queen of England…he laughs again and says “no I’m not!” I have continuously asked him to stop calling me but will not. It’s the same number every day, over and over, he never leaves a message, and I have altogether stopped answering my phone when the number shows up (866-517-7458). I am sick of this company calling (harassing)me. I have no debt that I owe for, (house is paid for, so no mortgage! no credit cards at all! no car payments, all vehicles are paid for!). I will NEVER reveal my personal info or anything else for them or to them. That company can just go get ******!

First Source Advantage has been calling me for two years asking for a man who I do not know. I have told them repeatedly that I don’t know the man and they have the wrong number. At first they would argue with me then they started telling me that they would take my number off of their list, however, that has never happened. They call me and hang up all of the time now and today I called the number back and got someone in India. I told him that if they called me one more time I was reporting them for harassment. It wasn’t 15 minutes later and they called and hung up again. I called them back and this time got a woman in India and told her the same thing. I live in Alabama and they often call me from local numbers. Here is a list of the numbers they have called me from this week alone:

I asked who the heck she was, she told me her name from First Source Advantage (I understood the company name once I called the number back), I asked what kind of company that it was and she refused to tell me, so I refused to confirm who I was and I’d be damned if I was giving her one digit of my social security number! The number she called me from was 877-255-1810. Never, ever, give out identifying information about yourself to a nice stranger that calls and wants you to identify yourself but won’t fully do the same!

I have also received calls from this number (2 in the last week). She refuses to give me any information other than “urgent business” unless I verify my mailing address or the last four digits of my SSN#.

I wouldn’t provide my S.S.N. to anyone. Once a debt collector knows they have your residential address and telephone number (or place of employment), they can not claim they are calling third parties while attempting to obtain “location information”. Sometimes, it’s worthwhile to make sure the debt collector has the phone number and residential address in order to shut down the “location information” excuse. So, if they ask who they are speaking to, I recommend consumers identify themselves. Remember, FirstSource seldom (IF ever) sues.

These folks just started calling us 3 days ago. They ask for my husband, wanting him to verify his date of birth and last 4 digits of his SSN. Needless to say they didn’t get either one. When they ask us to verify the phone number(which they had called) I got a bit rude!! The number they are callin us from is 716-564-4905. All three call have come from that number. At least we can understand the folks that call us. When I got snippy with the supervisor this morning he said they would take our phone number out of the system. Time will tell!! This really upsets this old grey-haired great-gramma!!

I keep getting calls from collection agencies like First Source who get me confused with a Christopher C. [exact match last name] who (a) lives in another city, (b) is younger than me, and (c) has a different address and social security number. I flat out told them to get their database straight.

If this is a company from India, at least if their callers were from India they have never been rude to me and I believe their Hindu ethics make them lie less. With American callers, its a crap shoot of whatever you get bugging you on the phone..

I was just called by 877-345-0895 identifying themselves as First Source Advantage. They refused to identify what kind of business they are engaged in until I would identify myself. Quite rudely, I will add.

They call here for my son. When I ask them for a return number so he can call back, they say they can’t give that number out. The number they used for us is 866-729-5682

Hannah – This makes a lot of sense to an FDCPA lawyer. If you search this website for “Location Information” you will see some of the violations that debt collectors often bring upon themselves when they call persons other than the consumer.

I have been getting calls from 877-345-0895. I don’t answer calls from numbers I don’t know on my cell phone. I called the number back from a different phone and the person who answered stated it was First source advantage.

888-270-2123. Called my number asking for my husband saying it was about a Capitol One business. I told her we didn’t have an account with Capitol One and she wanted me to verify his birthdate and wouldn’t tell me anything else unless I did.

I receive calls everyday from numerous numbers which I will begin posting. I did not know of this site until today so I will definitely add the number they called from today and continue with the numbers I get. I typically do not answer my phone and when I do, I tell them they have the wrong number and to take my number off their list and no more than 10 minutes later, I get another call, different number, same foreign man asking for the same person! It is awful. The number I have that they called from today and is not listed above is (855)807-4647.

Collector : People who can afford to pay their bills should. Unfortunately, many people can not afford to pay.

Collection agencies have the right to attempt to collect a debt and the FDCPA creates some limits on how, where, and when collectors can collect a debt. Without these limits, collection agencies would be threatening consumers with debtors’ prison, calling consumers (and their relatives) in the middle of the night, and calling the consumer’s boss.

When a debt collector violates the FDCPA, I usually recommend that consumer sue them. Consumers who file FDCPA lawsuits are not only protecting their rights, but also the rights of other consumers by discouraging other collectors from joining the race to the bottom.

Thanks for sharing your opinion.

The only debt I have is my mortgage which is as always has been paid on schedule. My only credit card is paid in full each month.
I have exemplary credit and am very financially responsible in every way. If FSA does nothing wrong why are they calling me?
For a company that does ‘nothing wrong’ they sure get a lot of complaints.
