I received a voicemail message on my phone. They never address what company they were calling from nor did they give their professional license number like most legitimate debt collectors do when leaving a voice message along with their extension. He said his name is Frank ** (or **) with my case number. He claims that my file came across his desk and he wanted me to call back to verify my address in order to be processed served me and have a claim against me (case # **). He did not mention the company name, nor the company's professional license number. He claims that I have been notified.
I called back on July 3, with the case number and spoke to a woman. She wanted to verify my social security number which I refuse to give her. She wanted to verify my birth date which I refused. When I asked her for the company's name she muttered 'Global,' when I asked for their professional license number she refused and started getting angry and screaming. I asked for her address, and then, she threatens to take me to court. I mentioned to her that what she was doing was illegal, and she said it wasn't. I told her I will report her to the State Attorney's office, which she sarcastically said, "good luck with that! I will send this notice to your home!" And hung up the phone.
A couple of months later I received another voicemail message from the same company. On September 21st, I received a voicemail from a Lucy **. She did not Identify the company she was with, she gave the case number, she made threatens my case was going to be filed with Los Angeles County (# **) and becomes public record. Ms. ** claim that since she was unable to contact me that she was advised to contact my employer (I actually work for the County of Los Angeles). She said I have the right to contact the proceeding office before my case gets filed. Ms. ** told me to call this number 855-210-0928. When I called back the person is reluctant to give the name of the company. I refused to give her my information as she refused to give her business license, address or validate the debt. This company must be stopped.
Last night I received a call from a number from "Holliston", MA (**). The women told me that there was a claim filed against me and that I needed to call a law office by the name of "Morris & Meyers". I looked up this company and noticed that the company is a complete sham. I told the woman on the phone to never dare call me again. She started yelling at me before she hung up the phone. I called this number back three times and told the woman to get a real job. "McDonald's is always hiring, get a real job instead of scamming innocent people!" She laughed and hung up the phone. It's unenviable how far some people will go to steal money from people. Please do not trust anyone claiming to be the IRS, a collections agency, or any other entity without actual proof. Tell them to "Bring it on!"
I got a call from "unknown" and didn't pick up because I don't answer those calls. "Jeannie **" left a message, saying she was from Global, looking for my nephew. We don't have anything to do with my nephew - at all. He is a shady character and we have NO association with him. She referenced case ** and left a call back number 855-438-7570. She left some long message about being a process server and that he was "officially served" with this message, he has a claim filed against him, blah, blah, blah. I called back and demanded how they got my number. The guy who answered was extremely rude and wouldn't answer my questions. I told him NEVER call my number again. He said he would call until he reached the person he as looking for. I told him I have no contact with that person and he'll never find him here. He said he would keep calling.
I said I was going to report him. He hung up on me. I called back four times and "someone" picked up the phone and hung it right back up. Finally it went to voicemail. I left a message telling them to take my number off their list and then I went into great detail about the report I was filing against them. I called back again (at this point it was a game) and a woman answered. I lit into her too (I figured I'd rattle as many lowlifes there as I could, right?). I told her I was sending the police to her and she was "officially served notice" and I repeated her name a few times for effect (flip the script on them).
She suddenly got very polite and said she would remove my information and to please disregard the voicemail. No one would tell me how they got MY number as a way to reach their original target. That is what was very suspect to me. That and anytime a "collection" agency or any company that deals with sensitive material leaves a very detailed message with sensitive information, they need to be reported. These bottom feeders though, they are just scammers. Don't listen to a word they say. Tell 'em, "bring it" and you'll be happy to turn it over to your friends at the FBI (that got me hung up on too).
First you get a call claiming to be a location services compliance officer from your state. Then they give you a number to call because there is a court case filed against you (which I checked there is not) then you call the 855-213-7106 where a Rachel ** claims there is a case pending based on an old payday loan from 3 years ago. I have this one time deal to pay it back before it goes farther. Do not give anything to these people!!! REMEMBER THIS NAME: RACHEL **. DO NOT CALL BACK ANY 855 NUMBERS.
1-844-809-2881. They called me and said I was being processed for court for an account that I have a paid in full letter for. They wanted me to repay the same account with them or I will have my check garnished and taken to court. I told her to send me to court because I have my letter and receipts. How can a company threaten anyone like this?

Some lady left me a message regarding my niece being taken to court because she listed my address. They try to call unknown but leave a message which traces back to them. The number they call from is 855 229 6079. These people seriously need to get a life.
I received a voice message from 1 Heather ** stating I would be taken to court and the police were coming to my home. I’m not an idiot so I looked them up and found all these complaints. The company is based in Canada with satellite offices in the United States. I checked the county court records just in case and nothing in regard to a court case. I also called my local police department. The only thing that can be done is to get an attorney. Do not give these people any personal information. They are a very large scam.
I called them back after getting all my ducks in a row and they couldn’t give me any information. They are thieves of the worst kind. I’m hoping we can somehow get a class action suit against them. They have already changed their name once, that I know of. I don’t know about you all but I’m done with these kinds of companies thinking it’s ok to do whatever they want. We as the American public can do something about this. For those of you who already gave them information and money I am so sorry. Let’s find a way to stop them permanently.
So not only did this Beth person call my work cell phone and left a voicemail about me having an open case with her, and that it's for the county of Los Angeles, the Phone number she left was an 855 number that I traced back to a Dance studio in North Carolina (Hello Beth, that's on the opposite coast). So right away I was like this lady really think I'm going to call her and give her my money? She's a scam artist! Who buys debt pennies on the dollar! She threatened to get a hold of my supervisor as well, last time I checked it's against the law for a debt collector to call the place of employment. The number she's using at the moment is **, I'll keep updating with whatever numbers she's using.
They called from a local number and asked if I was the guardian or parent to my child. She then proceeded to confirm our address, in which I declined giving to her until she told me what she was calling about. She said it was a personal business matter and that she needed to verify the address before sharing any information with me. When I continued to refuse to give her my mailing address, she hung up.
This lady is a scam artist. She calls from different numbers on a weekly basis. I have reported this company to my local state government as well as the federal trade commission. Please be aware. This is a SCAM. First Beth calls and tells you where she is from and states that she is calling to collect a debt. You have 24 hours to call her back or she will send an arrest warrant for your home or workplace. She leaves a faulty case number. The FTC warns about scammers like this out there they are using "scare tactics."
First debt collectors cannot issue arrest warrants it's against the law. Second I had a good friend that is a California attorney he said nothing came up in the state of California. Please be aware people these scammers have no soul and will not stop at anything to get as much money as they can. Know your rights. You have the right to request written validation of the debt. If they send you validation that can be used in court as evidence against them.
Received a call from a 'Beth' from Global Services who left a message to call 888-240-0182. Talked to an 'Amber' about a payday loan I didn't take out with a company who is known for scamming (ACE Cash Services is one of the names they use). I've received so many harassing calls and emails concerning this fictitious loan from different 'debt collectors' that I hired a company that specifically deals with this kind of illegal activity. I asked 'Amber' to provide the declaration of debt as proof. She said she will see if she can send this document.
This unknown number called me numerous times and eventually left a voicemail. It was some last name "Tanya" & she asked for me to call 1-888-502-9616 number in reference # **. So I called back & she tells me that it's a collection agency & I asked "What for. I have nothing on my credit report" & she stated back in February 2012 I took out a loan with TD Bank for $500 & I never paid it. She asked me if I recall that & I stated "No. I've never had TD Bank so that's not possible." She said it was done online & there's no way to prove that it wasn't mine because it was used with my social & she told me my entire social security number. She also used my address from when I was 20 years old (8 years ago). I told her I wanted to dispute it because I know for a fact it's not mine & someone used my social.
She said I could take it to court but I would be liable for all of the fees etc which would come out to be more than the loan which was $500 but with the interest fees it would be $590. It all sounded very believable so I told her we could set up something for that Friday & she was very persistent but trying to compromise. I had a gut feeling something was up so I told her I would call her back later in the week to set something up. I ended up googling the name of the company she stated she worked for & came across this site. I started reading the reviews & the stories were identical to mine. Please be aware of this company. They are definitely scammers. Don't get fooled like I almost did!
These people claim that my husband owes them $1,000 and they called his brother and he has not spoken to him in years. They told his brother that if he didn't pay they would start garnishing my husband's pay check. We don't even have his brother number so how the hell did they get it?? These people are con artist and I wouldn't trust them whatsoever. I see now that they're huge scammers by what everyone is saying.
While on the phone today I received a call from a number I didn't recognize so I let it go to voicemail. I listened to it and it sounded suspicious so I ignored it. Minutes later they call back which is actually not allowed once they leave a message but whatever. She tells me it is about a payday loan I took out in 2012 for $500. Hmmm I have already dealt with this type of call a few months back that was a scam so I was ready. I asked why this is not on my credit report 4 years later? She said they were giving me the option to pay this debt which she says is now $1090 before they did that. I laughed. I then asked where this debt was from? She said she'd need to transfer me...I said no it actually didn't matter as I had never taken out a payday loan. Again she insisted I take care of it or I'd be taken to court and pay 5x the amount.
Again I laughed and said "okay see you there". She disconnected the call. I got online after to see about this company and was inspired to call back. This time I spoke with a man. He told me the loan was from somewhere which could mean that I got it these places (quickly names things). He rattled off a bunch of my family's name that supposedly I had added as references to this loan however one small glitch one of the names listed was my sister and somehow back in 2012, before she even met her husband I knew what her married name would be. I brought this to the guy's attention and he said "that's not what I said, we did a search and these are potentially related people that could locate you as we could not". Again stating the obvious, I said "you're talking to me now".
I told him I knew it was a scam and how disgusting to take advantage of people like this, told him the internet was full of reviews about this company and he said "only people who owe money have something to complain about". He asked how we could clear this up today. I told him I wouldn't be and he then threatened me with this legal action. That I better get a good attorney, once more I said "bring it on". He then hung up. Any real debt I've ever had, they gave me all the details. They didn't have to prove it was me by the address, family, last 4...they weren't sneaky, they didn't talk in circles and they never got rude. That right there should cause alarm...do not pay these people.
This company has called multiple times, and they leave a recorded message, giving you a phone number and a case number. So, I call them back. They have the last four of my social and my address. Then they proceed to tell me that I owe a payday loan of $400. They said "well you either had it in your bank account, or a prepaid card." Nope, no way. I was online trying to get a payday loan, but I've never gotten one. So I asked for paperwork, they said they sent it, and no, I got nothing. They couldn't tell me who it was from, when it was gotten, or anything. Besides, if I had gotten a payday loan, wouldn't it be on my credit report? I've got nothing like that on it. I think these people try to scare you, telling you that you'll be sued or worse if you don't pay them. I do believe this is a scam!
Received several messages from these people stating I owed money on an old payday loan. The woman told me her name was Vivian. She stated that there were going to be papers filed against me and once the time ran out that I would be prosecuted for this. I asked her if she knew the amount. She stated it was 590.00. I told her that I was pretty sure that she was wrong. She asked me to verify my social security number I told her, "No. Not over the phone." She asked me for my address and I told her no, that I wanted to know the name of the company that was suing me first. She hung up. I called right back and she didn't even say hello. She just stated, "Are you ready to resolve this now?" I said no and she hung up again. I called back again and this time a gentleman answered. I asked him why she kept hanging up on me. He said their phone service was poor (liar) then he told me the amount I owed was 300 (different from what she said).
I asked him if he could send me the paperwork proving this allegation. He said he did and I didn't respond. I asked if he could send them to me now. He spouted off an address that I lived at 8 years ago. I said, "Well I haven't lived there for a while." Then he said he sent the "originals" to the old address and that he had nothing he could send me. He offered to e-mail them I said "No. I wanted certified mail." (He just offered to e-mail something to me that he said he didn't have. I said I would talk to my attorney. He said tell me his name and I will send him the paperwork. If he didn't have anything to send to me how could he send it to the attorney?) So I ended up saying, "No thanks. I will just wait for court." This is a total scam. Do not give them anything personal about you. DO NOT GIVE THEM MONEY.
Global Collection contact me in March on some default payday loans which I know I paid off. I ask them today for validation and document that I owe these loans. They tell me they are third party from CPN Investor or CMG. Well stupid me. I gave my credit card # for payments... I did some investigating. There's lot of complaints of them calling people. What I like to know is are they a real company. I don't even have an address for them. I did sign a contract stating all the payments I will be making. Please let me know if they are real company.
Continued to Robo call my home, never left a message, once I answered and heard a prerecorded message stating that their client stated I was avoiding contact, threatening to sue and place liens on home and bank accounts if I did not settle my account now. The recording did not state a name of who they were trying to contact nor the name of company calling or the client they represented. Hoping to at least stop the excessive calls I pressed one as instructed, after waiting on hold for over 20 mins I hung up and called the number back and received a message stating that they were Element Global Services a debt collector, sat on hold again for another 20 mins and hung up. I don't owe anyone anything. I frequently receive debt collection calls for my ex brother in law and his wife, I assume because we have the same last name. This is ridiculous, how can I get them to stop calling?!
Somehow Global litigations (I'm sure is a collection agency) called my ex step father's dad. I don't have my ex step father's number or his dad's number. Have not spoken to them in years. How'd they get a number I don't even have? This man is 98yrs old and house bound due to a stroke he had.... I called the number that my mom got from the ex in laws.... A man (Cameron) told me I owe $2865 for a payday loan that was $300 from over 5yrs ago. I asked him if he had any detail on this loan company that I did not know anything about. He didn't have any details or documents or my signature or my authorization. Not even a phone# of whoever he said I owe.
I told him to stop calling any other number than mine. I told him don't bother calling mine unless he had the proof and valid documentation of what he was saying I owe. He began talking over me but trying to assure me he wanted to help me. He threatened a court date due to fraud if I didn't pay. I told him I'll go to court then. He said he had other calls and will call me back and hung up. What the heck?
Received another call threatening to start taking money from my bank account. Returned the call and spoke with Jamie **, who was very helpful. She looked and saw my social security number was attached to someone with a similar name, but different address and birthdate. Contacted the Security company, I have sent them a copy of driver's license so they can verify. Hopefully settled soon.
Received a call claiming I owed for a security system from July 12, 2012. I never signed up for a security system. It's my sister's house and I have nothing to do with the security system. They were supposed to send me the information and I have till 5 pm tomorrow before they take legal action. Still waiting for information. They claim I owe over $2,000. She told me she would send it, "when she had time".
Just received a call on my cell phone from these people stating they were looking for my brother. I said, "I haven't seen him in a couple of months," that they would have same contact information for him that I do. Guy was extremely rude, told me they have no contact information for him that they are contacting the references he used. I said, "That makes no sense that you would be able to contact me but he didn't give you his information." I hung up, googled the company and then called back. Spoke to a very ignorant women. When I said to her, "This makes no sense to me that you would be calling as a debt collector," she very quickly said they are not debt collectors. I asked what they were. She said, "Mediators," that he has a pending case with them. I said, "It doesn't make sense to me that you would have my number but no way to contact my brother." Asked her to remove my name and number. She hung up on me.
Received a call on my cell phone, land line (that is never given out). My father received a phone call.. Said that they have 3 counts of fraud against me. Kept asking where they were located because they sound like they are overseas and they said they were located in Florida. Could not get a name of the company, what it is for and Lakisha said it was with Prime loans - a pay day loan company from 2010 and the bank that they said I had I have not used since 2005. Got very threatening and very rude. Was going to serve me papers to be summoned to court. Keep asking where and could not give me the information. This is a scam and I will be contacting my local police department on this matter. Would not even tell how much I owe and said it was all in a letter. I kept asking for the amount and all information and where they are located and they kept saying they have locations everywhere.
This person who identifies himself as Jonah ** calls me at least once a day (I'm at work, can't answer the phone). The message is call back immediately or reports will be made to all credit reporting agencies. Yesterday's call he said I have a returned back check (oh no I don't!) and he told my daughter moments ago that I have a delinquent bank loan. I don't have any loans, no overdue accounts, nothing. The callback number, 877-704-9748 when dialed, changes to what appears to be an overseas number, 01118663960388. The local number 619, 375-1843 goes to a voicemail that is not identified, that says you are caller number two, then caller number one and then says you have reached the general mailbox. To what, I have no idea.
This company called my parents stating that I owed on a payday loan $450.00 that I never received in 2008. I actually had to close my Chase acct due to this payday loan (OPD Solutions) debiting money from my acct that I did not authorize. I spoke w/ 2 reps from Global Solutions that informed me that I would need to pay them $1040.00 to satisfy this debt. This was 7 years ago and I explained to them that I never received this money, this is not my debt. This company is a scam/fraud. Told them to cease & desist from calling me & my family.
Took refund check from me when I have no student school loan with them. In process of filing a 1,000,000.00 dollar law suit against GCA for taking 6 years of tax refund monies when filed jointly with husband. Will be talking with an attorney on May 6 2015. Name and ss# and signature not on loan. This is a fraudulent collection agency that needs to be shut down, and ran by Sallie Mae - a federal government agency.
** left a voicemail for me stating I needed to call Global at 888-568-8205 regarding an "order" they received with my social security number this morning. I called and asked if they are a debt collector. Ms. ** said they are NOT a debt collector and simply want a statement from me on what I intend to do about this matter and resolve it. I again asked if she is a debt collector, she started talking over me. I then requested a validation of debt. ** refused, started speaking nastily and hung up. I have since spoken to **. Each one refuses to answer whether or not they are a debt collector. I am filing complaints with BBB and local police.
This company was calling me daily with a robo-call. Got sick of it. So last time I punched #2 for an operator. Then I yelled obscenities my husband did not know I knew. Told them to remove my number. I have not had a call from them since. Why aren't the scam operations shut down by law enforcement??
Received a Robo-call that said federal court action would be taken in 24 hrs if I didn't contact them in 24 hours. I called, was greeted his "Hello", asked for company name, it was only after 3 times he told me "GPS fraud investigations". Asked for address, he replied "can I help you!" Asked for address again, then he hung up! I called back, only to have him be more rude and this time threatening! Only asking 3 times he told me his name was Mark ** with the Fraud investigation unit, and this was about a bad check written to a credit card company in 1995 (no bad check was ever written). He threatened me with being sued, wage garnishment, property seizure and imprisonment! I told him this was all dismissed in Federal Bankruptcy Court in 2009, offered him attorney's name and number, and Federal Court Case number, his reply was "I'm not here to help you!"
Told me the amount was $15,000 plus dollars, but he was authorized to settle for 30% of that, my reply was "I have never written a check for $15,000 dollars". He fast talked that it was interest of the original credit card debt. I asked "so this isn't about a check written?", to where he got even more threatening. I asked him for their licensing number, he said he didn't need one since he wasn't a collection agency (which isn't true unless they are located in Alabama). Informed him that it is illegal to try to collect on this debt, he got even more rude! The number they called from is 844-340-6581. I recommend that anyone dealing with these people file a complaint with your state.
Alert - beware. This company is a fraud!!! A friend of mine paid this company regarding a old DOT traffic ticket. Fact 1: ticket had been paid and ticket is now over 20 years ago. Fact 2: friend received a phone call & gave this company his bank account information. Fact 3: this company withdrew money from that bank account. Fact 4: friend returned to Oklahoma to visit family members. Fact 4: friend is in his 60s, a veteran and has many health problems. Fact 5: friend was locked up, without his RX meds (for heart ), without food, water, put into a room, no heat, no blanket. Fact 6: this company failed to contact the Murray County Courts & Sheriffs Dept. Failed to know verify that this ticket had been paid. Do Not Pay. Do Not Have Anything To Do With This Company!!!! Bank & the Feds are investigate matters.
I received a vm from this company from a lisa ** on 12/30/14 about a so-called check (pay day loan) from 2008. They had my ss and part of my dl and an old address email address--granted in 2008 I was by no way living at this address they stated to me and a bank that I have NEVER had an account with IN MY LIFE. I called them back to get information on the account and the only thing they would tell me is that it was a company called "money and more"--one I have never heard of before. I talked to a lady who when I explained my situation of not taking out this loan or even ever having a bank account with this particular bank, she transferred me to what they called the "fraud" dept and talked to a very smug fast talking ** who would not give me any information (i.e. date of loan, amount of loan, etc.) only gave a very nasty disposition. He hung up on me twice when I asked for information pertaining to this so called pay day loan--so this was very disturbing to me. I did some research on this company "money and more", and it turns out that there is indeed information about this company stealing consumers' information that were online looking at payday loans--that was another red flag for me also--I just need to know how to handle these "people" legally.
