The following is a collection agency that has contacted me:

Portfolio Recovery Associates, LLC
PRA Disputes Department
140 Corporate Boulevard
Norfolk, VA  23502
TEL:  8007721413

They have contacted me on behalf of:

Seller – GE Capital Retail Bank
Merchant – PayPal
Original creditor - GE Capital Retail Bank
Balance at date of PRA, LLC purchase - $801.94
Date Account opened by Seller:  11/24/2011.  Note that this is only a matter of a few days after Paypal began to offer Bill Me Later for credit purchases!  I have NEVER used Bill Me Later nor ever will I under any and all circumstances because I have a very strict personal policy to NEVER BORROW ANYTHING EVER !!  I do not carry any credit card balance EVER.  I even paid off my mortgage early and have no car payment.  I always pay cash on the barrel head !!  This is very clearly FRAUD aimed at me by identity thieves !!  Of course I would not dismiss the possibility that GE Capital Retail Bank fabricated the records themselves. After all they are too big for jail, right? So, they can do anything that they want to innocent people to socialize their losses without consequences thanks to the mind boggling influence of the IMF.  PayPal has NEVER done anything with GE Capital Retail Bank, and neither have I. And, this is factually true whether we’re talking at some point in 2011 or up until today. It’s tough to ignore these facts.


My Research on GE Capital Retail Bank reveals very recent massive FRAUD:

CFPB Orders GE CareCredit to Refund $34.1 Million for Deceptive Health-Care Credit Card Enrollment
Article dated  DEC 10 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is ordering GE Capital Retail Bank and its subsidiary, CareCredit, to refund up to $34.1 million to potentially more than 1 million consumers who were victims of deceptive credit card enrollment tactics.

I am extremely reluctant to supply Portfolio Recovery Associates, LLC with any of the very personal information they are requesting because of the following . . .


My Research on Portfolio Recovery Associates reveals extreme and persistent evil minded behavior:
