So do I. We stopped communicating with them years ago after they turned in a 1099-C to the IRS when we told them to stop calling. We appealed---and when they failed to respond to the IRS's request for documentation to support their claim, they defaulted. Now they are calling again. We just ignore them and utilize our telecommunications provider's call blocking service.
Portfolio Recovery again... I answered the phone and blurted out 'This call is being recorded'. They responded that they don't approve of the recording (Even though they say that they are recording the call themselves). Told the guy that ALL calls are automatically recorded on my phone and no I will not stop the recording. The Caller ID displayed Chicago Plumbers but I recognized the number from here.
Yes, they have thousands of numbers they call from. This is a much better and more permanent solution:'Well known to violate every collection law on the books, which is good news for you. You can not only make them pay you, you can also make the calls stop and learn where to report them as well.

Zombie Collector, trying to resurrect debts beyond the statute of limitations. If you talk to them, they can restart the legal clock on limitations and hound you worse. Get a call blocker and ignore them...which is the best revenge that they can't hook you into their games.
The way I did it on my old cell phone was to create a group of callers that I would accept only as new numbers just get hanged up on automatically. I need to do the same with this one now since I just got new phone.
You should be able to find a way to block numbers not in your contact list then. Search your play store for a blocking app and you're likely to find a good one that allows you to kill private callers.~I Was Prepared~JustinCase
