This call is from Bill Me Later. Bill Me Later is usually associated with a PayPal line of credit on eBay. If you didn't pay your bill or forgot to pay this month then you are getting calls from this number because they want to resolve your late payment. Just pay your bill and they won't call you anymore. Hope this helps.

Unfortunately, even if you’ve paid your monthly or quarterly billing installment, it’s an automated call where only if you pick up will a live account representative then take the call to discuss your options. They are unaware of any agreement that may have been authorized by themselves, their peers or supervisors, until you remind them for the 12th time in two weeks that an agreement has been settled for a payment already made (typically after you paid AFTER a deadline). The representative will not know of your record of agreement or post-deadline payment until you’re asked for your information to retrieve the appropriate records to prove that a payment was made and/or an agreement was discussed and verified. And with that being said, IF you don’t pay on or before the specified deadline, you’ll likely be “harassed” for the next month (month, quarter, etc) until your next payment is made. So yes, the earlier response about paying your bill on time is good advice—-BUT, there remains a chance that this troubling automated procedure will cause issues with potential collections, creditors, and ultimately the associated vendor (PayPal, eBay...) as it relates to future requests for credit, payments, purchases ... your good credit can tumble to bad credit and that is VERY problematic due to the typical response from representatives who exclaim with frustrated—angry customers, “we don’t know anything of a history until after we reach you, not can we turn-off this automated customer collection call until the next payment is made” ... and if you paid a day after the deadline, 29-30 days of potential harassing calls will continue and furthermore, a risk of turning you the “dark side” of what may have been good credit, to average or even worse bad credit”. This is not cool! But hey, pay your bill as soon as you can as best as you can. Good luck!

... one (1) last piece of advice ... IF you’re in a position where paying on time is difficult to do and want to avoid multiple phone calls to more than one (1) verified phone number, let the representative know that one of your numbers is no longer valid or has been re-assigned ... AND the more important tip, IF you find making payments on time is difficult (please remember that challenges like this happens to ALL of us from time to time—you’re NOT the only one juggling bills or these kind of phone calls) ... consider taking a deep breath and cut your losses by cancelling the credit card/line to avoid it to continue being a headache—once you pay it off then you can decide whether or not opening a new line of credit is agreeable with your budget. (Heck, I just got tired of it, so I have one credit card that I have for NEEDS, and emergencies) and pay with cash as much as possible! You’ll notice in time that the well dressed man or woman that resembles proof of having “good money”, they will pull out cash to pay for a nice lunch or gift at the register ... having cash instead of 9 different credit cards will make you think twice about that planned—and 9 times out of 10—a last second purchase, that you’ll shake your head wondering why in the hell you just spent $119. for that dust collecting trinket that is nowhere to be found! Good Luck again!
