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.
