These people scared my grandmother and called her threatening to serve me papers if I don't call within the hour. First how did they even get her number? I called and they verified wrong information and still questioned if I was giving them correct information. These people are a scam and practicing illegal collections! They need to be shut down!
This company called about a relative. Unsure how they got my name and number but left a msg and case # saying person has a pending legal case filed in X county court and unless I called back they’d assume person was living at my residence (3000 miles away) and would arrest them there. When I called back they could not answer basic questions like, "Where did you get my number, what court? Who are you? Where are your offices located?" Etc. When I researched case number given in the court they claimed case was filed there was no such pending case and they correspond by mail and would never call.
When I called them back with what I discovered and told them I was reporting them as fraud, they said that they do not make external calls and hung up. Do not fall for this scammer. Do not give them information. If you feel they got hold of record of $ you owe someone call the people you owe directly. If in collections they will tell you how to resolve and who to call.
This company threatened me every day for a month until I finally made payment arrangements to start the end of January. After finding this page and reading all the other stories I am now going to stop all transactions from this company. I knew something was wrong when they wouldn’t give me their address or offer to send me proof of this debt.
I talk Attorney today, spend hours on the phone...thought I was going to jail. Almost give my credit card information to this company. Don’t give them anything... Fake company running scams!!! Talk to the attorney general and report them too. They have to give their full name and address and identification number To you if they a real company. When I called back refused to give any of this stuff... Watch out for them. Great liars!! 512 local number but they wanted me to call 1855 number with a case number. All bull!!!
I received my first call from this company about a month ago at my home, which in itself was odd because I had only had the phone service for about a month. Literally no one had the number. They called advising to my 10yo daughter that she needed to speak with me regarding me paying my bills on time, and that there was an officer on their way to our house to arrest me. The lady attempted to get my daughter to "verify" our address, which she did not. My husband then got on the phone and asked who she was and what exactly was it she wanted. She then tried to verify an address and became belligerent with him stating that there was a warrant issued for my arrest, and they had someone on their way to my house to arrest me.
I was asleep at the time, I work nights. I woke up to the yelling from my husband, who by this time had hung up on her 4 separate times and she immediately was calling back. I answered the phone on the next call that came in and asked her wth was going on. What she didn't know is I am in law enforcement, I assured her there was no warrant for my arrest, and I wanted to know who exactly was coming to my house and what agency issued the warrant. She said a process server was en route. I laughed and said well unless the laws have changed in the last 6 hrs PROCESS SERVERS CAN'T ARREST PEOPLE. She of course was unable to tell me what agency had issued the warrant for my arrest.
I asked her again what this was about, she stated it was in regards to an unpaid payday loan from ACE CHECK CASHING. I told her I don't have any loans. Again, I reiterated that I was law enforcement and to call my home and blatantly lie to a child and say I would be arrested, and attempt to get info from a child was shameful. She hung up. Today I received a voicemail from an ALICE ** calling from **. She never advised the name of the company she was calling from, just a case number. Stated that a case was being filed against me, named the county I live in, and stated that she would also be contacted my employer to speak with my supervisor due to my workplace being the best location to locate me. She went on to say that I should consider this voicemail a legal notice and that I would be located.
I called the number, spoke with a male subject, who was not rude at all. He asked for my "case" number so he could open my record and give me info. Tried to verify the last 4 of my SS#- nope, stated that there was an unpaid debt with ACE CHECK CASHING, but wouldn't tell me the amount. I explained to him I did not own this debt. He very nicely stated that they believe otherwise, and that the case would be filed with my local court next week. I said, "Ok, I'll wait". I don't know how they get this BS info, but I can tell you, this entire situation has rattled my family.
My daughter was very upset. If this is a debt that was supposedly a failed collection on the original company, wouldn't it be on my credit report? Well it's not. Nothing from ACE or GLOBAL. In an attempt to find out more about this company, I came across this page. I am both grateful, and horrified. I am grateful that clearly there is no real threat that my identity has been fraudulently used. I am horrified that there people who would do this in an attempt to collect money for their own gain.
At the top of this page it says they are out of business, but as of Nov 15, 2018, I just received 10 phone calls within a 30 min period. Now they're calling me from a private number 2-3 times every 30 minutes. They're telling me the same as everyone else on here, so maybe this needs to be looked into again.
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.
