USDAs Charge Card Service Center would like to alert you to a new scam that has occurred with employees within USDA who have received phone calls from a fraudulent company, Professional Business Publications and then as an organization International Credit Recovery. Please see details of the scam below.
The scam works like this:
The sales calls come from a fraudulent company called Professional Business Publications and they try to sell you subscriptions to publications. After several months, they call you back under the name of International Credit Recovery stating that they are a collection agency for Professional Business Publications and that you had agreed to a publication subscription. When you indicate that you did not purchase a subscription, they tell you that you confirmed by giving them your date of birth (Month and Day only). If you still refuse to pay, they threaten you that your personal information will be submitted to the credit bureaus. The telephone numbers for International Credit Recovery are 6077485231 or 6077484686 or 6077481688.
A complaint has been filed re: this scam with the New York Attorney Generals Office.
Please advise your cardholders of the following:
Do not give out ANY personal information over the phone, the internet or the mail.
If you think the request is valid you should always contact the bank yourself using the number on the back of your card and forward any suspicious emails or information of potential fraud to fraud_help@usbank.com.
If anyone ever gives out information they should immediately call US Bank Customer Service.
Please pass this on to your cardholders, coordinators and approving officials. By informing each other, we protect each other.
Please email any questions to ccsc@da.usda.gov.
Thank you!

Wow, hard to believe these people are still alive and kicking. We just received the exact scam, word for word, based on the comments I've read here dating back to 2007. Of course, I'm not going to pay *anything* until I see confirmation

I just started getting calls from them, for a newsletter I've never ordered or received. I told them I wouldn't have ordered this, they suggested maybe it was a trial I didn't cancel. I never do those, even if you get freebies. If I have to cancel, I don't do it, not worth it. She said I gave my birthdate to confirm the order, like that would be hard to find out. Most orders like hat record the conversation. We'll see how it goes, but now that I've researched it I see it's a scam.

Got a call today from Amanda Sprague (if that is her real name) from International Credit Recovery. Claimed that we ordered a publication from Progressive Business Publications (which was false). Wanted cashier's check sent via overnight mail or credit card number. Gradually became more threatening (very well rehearsed, BTW) when I refused to pay. People like her should be prosecuted.

I researched the company and found many complaints online. The company is not a Better Business Bureau member for good reason.

The scam is outlined in a USDA.gov webiste Please check out the link below:

I received a call from Kathy Rema from ICR.. same story as everyone else.. She got nasty when I would not let her speak with my boss. She said she was going to call him at home. She also threatened to ruin my personal credit. Finally she said "This will not go away!" and hung up. She called the next day and when I told her that according to the NY State Division of Corporations IRC of Vestal NY is "Inactive" and "dissolved" for not paying franchise taxes, she said that is a different company and put me on hold! Really?! How many ICRs in Vestal NY are there? And she expected me to sit on hold?! Yeah right!
Funny thing is, two days later, Progressive Business Publications called and asked for our CFO. (We are a small dental office.) I asked if this had to do with an IRC matter. No, she wanted to send him a free trial copy of CFO and Controller Alert! Seriously?! I started laughing, told her they were scammers and hung up! We all got a good giggle about that!

This company is a complete scam that preys upon nonprofit organizations. I wasted several hours of my time that could have been better spent on work on behalf of my organization investigating their bogus credit collection call.

With the hundreds of complaints about this company, I do not understand why the government or New York Secretary of State has not investigated.

Note: There is no zero stars option or this company would have a solid zero rating.

They represent scam artists to collect money from orders never given. I received a call today at my place of work, a nonprofit organization, and was threatened to be personally held accountable for a subscription I never ordered from Progressive Business Publications. They represent scam artists.

ICR is/was a customer at a bank i used to work for. every one of the employees is rude (and funny enough, most of their accounts are frequently overdrawn). I hated waiting on them. If it is/was a scam, it's quite an elaborate, and successful one! I'm just not quite sure it could go undetected for so long with all the business with banks they do. Nonetheless, it does seem very fishy...

Got the junk newsletter I religiously threw away, got the crazy invoice and the phone calls for subscription, got the collection calls from a rude and pushy she-man that tried to boss me around and get me to pay for my alleged subscription. Never got anything from them but an attempt to intimidate me into payment. I wish I were on the East coast, to pay them a visit and talk face to face about my case, what I owe them -allegedly- and what their claims are...life is so unfair...so little time to have fun and great distances to travel. I am looking forward to their phone calls now that I know that they are scam prone. If there is an action in justice, I am in! Cynthya would look good in a stripped suit! lol

No difference in the story, I received a phone call from a Lynn Gregory attempting to collect this debt the that the company i worked for owes for this publication that i never authorized. But same story, they have my birthday, yyada yyada. I was actually concerned for a moment as they sound very convincing on the phone. I did my due diligence in googling the phone number and this page amongst tons of others came up. I printed every single page of material I could find and faxed a letter along with all the pages of rants to progressive business publications. Does anyone have connects with fox 5 on your side or anything like that? We need to put an end to these people preying on unsuspecting innocent people with hostile and highly unethical business practices of both Progressive Business Publications and this fictitious collections company International Credit Recovery Inc. Which by the way is probably created, owned, and run by Progressive Business Publications as a separate entity in this EXTREMELY elaborate scam. In my closing statement of my letter to them, i wrote "I hope your company ceases from these highly hostile and unethical business practices, otherwise I will have no sympathy and nothing but PURE JOY when your company gets shut down by a HUGE class action suit."

I would be more than happy to gather a group to pursue a class action suit against this company. It's amazing that such as sham operation is allowed to exist. I think this would be an excellence opportunity for a class action attorney to purse. I imagine they are making millions by pushing their relatively small fake invoices through accounts payable departments across the country. I have worked at three different companies where interaction with this company and it's partner-in-crime Progressive Business Publications has been a constant battle.

A year ago I received a friendly phone call asking me if I wanted a free copy of a Marketing report. I received the free copy, then emailed the only email on the publication to cancel. They continued sending it, and then billed us. I, then called and left a message to cancel on their "subscription line". They stopped for a few months, then started again. I told the financial person here that I have cancelled on numerous occasions, that they should not be billing us. Today, June 4th, one year later, I get a call from International Credit Recovery saying that the bill has gone into claims, and they are a collection agency. I faxed a letter, with back-up that I cancelled, and am sending them a FedEx package demanding their direct signature. This is a nightmare. It is very sad that people are out there doing business this way. This is reflection of the people and the product. Do not respond to anyone asking if you would like a copy of a free marketing report.

Under no circumstances should you provide any financial information to this company. Their scam is that they claim to be calling from a collection agency for a business publication (another scam business--Progressive Business Publications) with which you had a "trial subscription" that was not canceled and therefore you owe money. They want you to pay on the spot and will even ask you to use a personal credit card and expense it. Ask them to prove that you did subscribe and they will not be able to because it is indeed a scam.

I also was contacted by this company. They claim that I ordered some nonexistent subscription to a newsletter from Progressive Business Publications. They then make what they call is a courtesy call to collect on this bill. They claim that we authorized such a purchase because they know our phone number. Of course we didn't authorize such purchase, and the company is rather evasive about where they are located. Don't fall for this scam, they are an incredible fraud and if two more people would like to join me in stamping out this menace we can perhaps get the local district attorney to send the business owners to jail.

please contact me at edward@magicmouse dot com to cooperate to get rid of this fraud.

This is really a fraudulent organization posing as a collection agency which mines public records for companies and people, then calls up to say that the company subscribed to and was invoiced for a client's fictitious magazine. They say that the company was invoiced several months ago, and has received copies of its magazine, and that they are now going to enforce collection actions. They try to first say that "it must be an oversight" on the part of the company - but their veil of fraud is clearly transparent. They'll also quote someone in the company's birthday, and say they couldn't have received it if no one placed the order. This is a lie. These people are perpertrating a scam. Hang up on them when they call. For more horror stories, Google their phone number, 607-748-4686.
