They are liars, call me several times a week, even called my job. Middle eastern accents, can hardly understand them, but, said his name was Brian Smith, Brian Anderson, etc.   What a bunch of idiots, trying to get my cell phone service to block all their calls, but, they keep using different numbers with different area codes.  I am blowing a whistle next time they call and at least that may get a doctor's attention!

I got a call today from this number!! I went rouds with this guy. He was telling me that I took out a pay day loan on the internet. Which I had not!!! He had my SSI # My birthdate and my bank account #. He told me that I owed $525.26 and that I needed to resolve this issue. He told me that I could be arrested and go to jail for up to 3 months. But when I asked them to send me the legal documents he stated that I would have to go to the California Supreme Court House the day after tomorrow with my attorney. Or i could just resolve this by paying the amount. Soi I told HIm that I would have to make payments and He said that would be fine but I would need to fax him an APOLOGY letter which he told me what to write word for word. Then I told him that I did not have a credit card or a debit card and i would need the address to send a money order. He told me that I could not send a money order that I would have to go buy a pre-paid debit card and fax him the information on the card. I had told him that I have been through my fair share of legal problems and that I have never not gotten somthing in the mail stating my charges before. I asked him to send me the legal documents he told me that after the last installment was paid he would send me the paper work. After thinking about this I asked him how do I know that this isn't a scam? Then he hung up on me!!! So I called him back and yelled at him some more. I told him I would fax the apology letter tomorrow. Then I called a friend and told about my conversation with this guy and she looked this business up on the internet and found it was a scam.

For a whole week, my cell phone was ringing off the hook and I didn't answer because I don't know that number. Yesterday, Daniel Vyke got the nerve to call and left a message at my workplace. Today, I spoke to Daniel Vick; this guy has a strong accent. I was surprised that they have all of my information! He asked me if I have a criminal attorney with me because I have a legal charge against me. First of all, I requested a $300 loan but I later changed my mind because I got my paycheck days later.  He said that the loan was processed; I check my 2010 statements and he's a freaking liar. They say that I have to go to California and plead my case. If I don't go to California, then they're threaten to mail the case to my HR because I can't see the case myself. They got the nerve to call my freaking job! I cannot believe that they have my information. Common sense tells us, if we owe something, then the collection people should call us. Another common sense tells us, if there was a legal charge, then we should get a subpoena. They're not a law firm; they're scammers who need to go to freaking jail. Do not fall for their scam everybody.

THE SAME GUY WITH HEAVY ACCENT HAS BEEN CALLING MY PHONE FOR OVER 3 MONTHS.  THE MESSAGE IS THE SAME EXACT WORDING EVERY TIME. HE SAYS THIS CALL IS INTENDED FOR  (My real full name). Its is very important that u return this phone call immediatley, as this call is time sensative. I need u or your attorney to call me immediatley as this is a very seriouse legal matter. Do not ignore this phone call. if you decide not call me or have your attorney call me , alls I can do is wish u and yours much luck as this  situation unfolds on you. A few times he has recited my full name and social security number on the message.     Today alone August  19, 2010 they have called me (10) times already. (4) times in the same minute, they would call hang up call hang up call ect ect ect... I genuinley and very sincerley feel absolutley awful and bad for people who are falling for this scam...I can definatley see how someone that is very trusting and nieve would absolutley fall for this, as the guy is very demanding , persistent, and would be very convinceing to the right people who have never had any hard knocks in life and have never had to deal with things of this matter. I  myself have definatley lived a long life of hard knocks and seen it all and no this is definate bull crap. But even for me the ongoing messages and threats are at times somewhat scarey. Especially when they can recite your most private dealings and numbers.       I just wish the best for everyone and hope that the jerk gets caught sometime and gets the proper punishment. And hope that no inocent people suffer . Not only hopeing no one suffers financially but mentally also as the threats can be pretty severe....Good luck to all with this problem and any that may exist from this or elsewhere.........

My calls started last Thursday Aug 12.  My phone just repeatedly kept ringing.  A vague message was left from a Peter Crider stating he was a lawyer and I better call him back or it will be bad luck for me.  Then my ext at work started ringing 10 times in a row.  Very brief message hard to understand.  Caller has a very thick accent and very poor command of english language. Caller has been calling repeatly everyday since.   No message until today.  He stated he was a lawyer from the United Nations Legal Team and I was in big legal trouble and then  rambled on and then something about how he had called me over and over and over..........I better call him there are legal problems tied to my social. Then more legal threats.  The name of the legal firm sounds so bogus. Do not answer a call from this number.!!!!My friend had similar call last month.  My friend did answer and the calls just got worse and calls increased. He yelled and cursed at my friend threatened to have her arrested and fired, but would never tell her who she owed.  It was horrible.  She had to call the police. The guy even tried to pick me up over the phone. I thought I had received an obscene phone call. These guys are crazy. I have not spoken to the caller because of what happened to my friend.

I had a message on my voicemail thursday (8/5) night, saying i have legal charges pending against me, etc. and to give him a call back.  he called me twice friday and the second time my boyfriend answered the phone and "Jack Williams" was all too happy to give my bf, who has no legal ties to me, my social security number, driver's license number, address, cell phone number, old bank account information, email address, all of that.  I spoke with him and he repeated the same information to me.  He said i had taken out a $500 cash advance loan and hadn't paid it back so i now owe over $800.  He said i had 3 legal options, have an attorney represent me and have to pay over $3,500, not pay and disregard and "be behind the bars" for 3 months, or pay the $800 something dollars.I ended the call and spoke with LifeLock, as my wallet had been stolen the week prior to these phone calls. They confirmed it was a scam and wanted to call the number back with me, it said the number had been disconnected.Monday he called me 7 times.  The first 2 times he left voicemail.  I again called lifelock, they again couldn't get through, the number didn't work.The next 5 times were all within 1 minute of eachother, no voicemails.Tuesday was crazy! He called me a total of 13 times.  I had him on the phone with lifelock and he became very frustrated and even snapped at us a few times.  He threatened me with jail time again and wouldn't back down even when lifelock disproved some of the things he was saying.These people are ruthless.  He told me to expect all of the legal information at my place of work "tomorrow with a letter of termination from my job."I am trying to get in touch with the police woman who is handling the case of my stolen wallet.  This has been incredibly stressful and it's not over yet. I've been out of the office and am almost afraid to know what kind of messages this man may have left on the answering machine at my work, as he also knew my place of business.

I received over 20 calls yesterday at my office from a Matt Johnson and after hours he left threatening messages. So I called them back this morning with my Blackberry recording. I asked to speak to Matt Johnson the one who left the message. A Brandon Brown got on the phone and said he was a Senior Attorney for United Nations Legal Department. I told him I was recording and he gave me his California State Bar #. I checked it out while he was reading the charges against me. I have sent the recording to the real Brandon Brown who I would assume is pursuing identity theft charges. There is no such case number filed against me nor have I ever done business with the Plantiff. However, these people do have alot of my personal information. Scary. Don't tell them anything. When you don't answer their questions they will threaten to have you arrested and then hang up. Get as much information as you can from them and check it out. Pull your credit report.I fear this company is not even based in the United States, so there probally not be much that can be done to stop them.

This is definitely a scam.  They are calling me all day long.   THEY START CALLING BEFORE 8AM!.  If anyone of you have ever taken a pay advance or paycheck loan this is probably how they got your information.  There are laws that ban collections agents and telemarketers from calling between 9pm and 9am.  I am going to contact the attorney general in my state and suggest you all do the same.  These people are counting on the fact that we're all so in debt that we will just pay for fear that we will be sued.  DISCLOSE NO PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THEM!  I BET SOMEONE AT THE REAL UN WOULD BE INTERESTED IN KNOWING RUSSIANS ARE CALLING TO TRY TO SCAM US.

The first call came yesterday 7/22/10 at approximately 11:15 am. The person claimed to be with the United Nations Legal Department and said I was being charged with bank fraud as well as othercharges. He refused to answer any questions and claimed he had to inform me of the charges first but only AFTER I insisted he tell me the charges.  He threatened me saying he would have the State Police come and arrest me, which I know is a load of bull, as well as threatened me with court and jail time. He made it sound as if there were a long list of charges. I ended the call as I was getting another call at that time. Whoever this man was he had a heavy accent that was most likely an Indian (India) accent.I received another call on 7/23/10 at 11:13 am. He made the same claim of being with United Nations Legal Department. I asked for his name (Brandon Brown), phone number (760-582-0305) and employee number. He gave me a number he said was his BAR Association number (266347). After getting the name, phone number and Bar Association number I told the man that I would have an attorney contact him, that he had been reported to the Federal Trade Commission and then told him do not call again and hung up. He immediately called back and asked what I said. I told him he had heard everything I said and to never call again and hung up.Using the information provided by the caller I went to the California Bar Association's web site (the phone number traces back to Bishop, CA) and found the real Brandon Hugh Brown, who was admitted to the California State Bar 12/2009 and was able to also find the firm the real Mr. Brown works for, Kirkland & Ellis LLP. The real Brandon Brown, CA Bar Assoc #266347, specializes in Intellectual Property Law. I called the real Mr. Brown to inform him of what was going on (he does NOT have a foreign accent and from his picture on the company's web site he is quite obviously Caucasian. As it turns out he was already aware of other people getting the same kind of calls where his name was being used. However, I was the first person that was given a Bar association number. I gave the Bar Association number given to me to the real Mr. Brown and he confirmed that it was his (the number is online and is public information, however, the use of it still constitutes identity theft and fraud).Mr. Brown informed me that by providing him with the information that his Bar Association Number was being fraudulently used, he now has what he needs to call the police.If you receive calls from someone claiming to be Brandon Brown with United Nations Legal Department, PLEASE, contact the real Mr. Brown using the information I gave above to locate a contact number.

Consumer Alert: Attorney General warns Kansans of debt collection scamJanuary 29, 2010 -- Attorney General Steve Six is cautioning Kansas consumers about telephone calls from apparent fake debt collectors who are impersonating law enforcement officers in an effort to extort money from consumers.   Consumers are warned to not submit payments to these fraudulent debt collectors.When calling, the scammers most often state they are attempting to collect a debt related to an internet payday loan obtained by the consumer, but which the consumer never repaid.  Consumers state they have never obtained such a loan or paid off the loan years ago.  The scam artists have most recently identified themselves as ACS, National Affidavit Processing Department and United Financial Crime Division, but may use additional phony names.  It appears the phone numbers used by the scammers are “spoofed” numbers, so that the number appearing on a consumer’s caller ID is not the actual number of where the call originated. It appears the calls in question may be originating from outside the United States.When questioned, the individual calling refuses to disclose the full name or address of the collection agency they claim to represent.  These scammers have been able to provide consumers with identifying information, such as the consumer’s social security number, home address, e-mail address, names of family members and the consumer’s computer IP address.  Since the callers are able to provide valid personal information, consumers may become confused and believe they are being contacted in regard to a legitimate debt.If the initial debt collection scam is unsuccessful, consumers have been re-contacted months later with the scammers posing as law enforcement officers or officers of the court.  Typically, the consumer is threatened with arrest for fraud or some other fictitious crime unless the consumer agrees to immediately wire money via Western Union.  The fictitious officers strive to frighten and confuse consumers into compliance by using legal sounding terms such as “We’re filing an affidavit against you” or by stating a lawsuit has been or is in the process of being filed against the consumer.A hallmark of each scam has been calling consumers repeatedly at their place of employment.  This scam hit home when an employee of the Kansas Attorney General’s Office was repeatedly called both on her cell phone and at work.  Despite the employee’s repeated verbal disputes, the caller refused to provide any identifying information to allow her to send a written dispute. The scammer also continued to call her numerous times a day regarding a payday loan she denied obtaining. Two months later, she was again contacted by telephone by an individual identifying himself as an “officer”. “I denied owing the debt and refused to pay without being provided validation of the debt. I was then told, ‘If that’s the case, I will have local law enforcement come to your place of business and drag you out kicking and screaming’,” stated the employee.“It is important for consumers to know their rights under the law,” Attorney General Six said. “If a consumer is receiving calls from a debt collection company and believe it is a scam, I encourage them to contact our office immediately.”Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), collectors are required to send consumers a written notice within five days of the initial contact.  The notification should contain  information such as the amount of the debt, the name of the creditor to whom the debt is owed and a statement informing the consumer they have thirty days to contact the debtor in writing to dispute the debt or request validation of the debt. In addition, legitimate debt collectors are prohibited by the FDCPA from making false or misleading representations, such as the consumer has committed a crime, implying nonpayment will result in the consumer’s arrest, or using the threat of violence.More information is available on the Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/credit/cre27.pdf.

Just got a call form these scammers.  Same as always, a middle eastern man left a message at my home saying call Sam George - he called at my work and said he was Tom Taylor.  when I called back I asked for Sam Taylor and amazingly he was the one on the phone - what a crazy coincidence in names that is.  Then he started in on his little speech "Warrents are being downloaded for you arrest...blah, blah, blah" as usual, at first he would not tell me who the loan was with or when it had been taken out.  Finnally said it was with Sonic Cash form Sept. 2008.  When I told him I was looking at my bank statements and these was no such loan given, all of a sudden the date changed.  I asked for the number to sonic Cash - he said he could not give it, when I puhsed he gave me 760-514-0127 - wow same number.  He said he was form Williams Law State Attorney Office.  I asked where he was located, he told me California - really, the state attorney in Calfornia is calling themselves the William Law State Attorney Office?  At this point I informed him that I knew it was scam and never call me again.  I found the real number for Sonic Cash and called them - they have been getting many calls form people aboiut this scam - and as always when they check thier system - I am nowhere to be found in it. They do issue payday loans - but informed me that I never could have gotten one form them even if I had applied because they are not licensed in my state.  I contacting all the appropriate government agencies to report them now.  I can't wait until these people are caught and sent back to whatever pit they crawled out of!

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), which prohibits debt collectors from using abusive, unfair, or deceptive practices to collect from you.Under the FDCPA, a debt collector is someone who regularly collects debts owed to others. This includes collection agencies, lawyers who collect debts on a regular basis, and companies that buy delinquent debts and then try to collect them.Here are some questions and answers about your rights under the Act.What types of debts are covered?The Act covers personal, family, and household debts, including money you owe on a personal credit card account, an auto loan, a medical bill, and your mortgage. The FDCPA doesn’t cover debts you incurred to run a business.Can a debt collector contact me any time or any place? No. A debt collector may not contact you at inconvenient times or places, such as before 8 in the morning or after 9 at night, unless you agree to it. And collectors may not contact you at work if they’re told (orally or in writing) that you’re not allowed to get calls there.How can I stop a debt collector from contacting me?If a collector contacts you about a debt, you may want to talk to them at least once to see if you can resolve the matter – even if you don’t think you owe the debt, can’t repay it immediately, or think that the collector is contacting you by mistake. If you decide after contacting the debt collector that you don’t want the collector to contact you again, tell the collector – in writing – to stop contacting you. Here’s how to do that:Make a copy of your letter. Send the original by certified mail, and pay for a “return receipt” so you’ll be able to document what the collector received. Once the collector receives your letter, they may not contact you again, with two exceptions: a collector can contact you to tell you there will be no further contact or to let you know that they or the creditor intend to take a specific action, like filing a lawsuit. Sending such a letter to a debt collector you owe money to does not get rid of the debt, but it should stop the contact. The creditor or the debt collector still can sue you to collect the debt. Can a debt collector contact anyone else about my debt?If an attorney is representing you about the debt, the debt collector must contact the attorney, rather than you. If you don’t have an attorney, a collector may contact other people – but only to find out your address, your home phone number, and where you work. Collectors usually are prohibited from contacting third parties more than once. Other than to obtain this location information about you, a debt collector generally is not permitted to discuss your debt with anyone other than you, your spouse, or your attorney.What does the debt collector have to tell me about the debt? Every collector must send you a written “validation notice” telling you how much money you owe within five days after they first contact you. This notice also must include the name of the creditor to whom you owe the money, and how to proceed if you don’t think you owe the money. Can a debt collector keep contacting me if I don’t think I owe any money? If you send the debt collector a letter stating that you don’t owe any or all of the money, or asking for verification of the debt, that collector must stop contacting you. You have to send that letter within 30 days after you receive the validation notice. But a collector can begin contacting you again if it sends you written verification of the debt, like a copy of a bill for the amount you owe.What practices are off limits for debt collectors?Harassment. Debt collectors may not harass, oppress, or abuse you or any third parties they contact. For example, they may not:     use threats of violence or harm;     publish a list of names of people who refuse to pay their debts (but they can give this information to the credit reporting companies);     use obscene or profane language; or     repeatedly use the phone to annoy someone. False statements. Debt collectors may not lie when they are trying to collect a debt. For example, they may not:     falsely claim that they are attorneys or government representatives;     falsely claim that you have committed a crime;     falsely represent that they operate or work for a credit reporting company;     misrepresent the amount you owe;     indicate that papers they send you are legal forms if they aren’t; or     indicate that papers they send to you aren’t legal forms if they are. Debt collectors also are prohibited from saying that:     you will be arrested if you don’t pay your debt;     they’ll seize, garnish, attach, or sell your property or wages unless they are permitted by law to take the action and intend to do so; or     legal action will be taken against you, if doing so would be illegal or if they don’t intend to take the action. Debt collectors may not:     give false credit information about you to anyone, including a credit reporting company;     send you anything that looks like an official document from a court or government agency if it isn’t; or     use a false company name. Unfair practices. Debt collectors may not engage in unfair practices when they try to collect a debt. For example, they may not:     try to collect any interest, fee, or other charge on top of the amount you owe unless the contract that created your debt – or your state law – allows the charge;     deposit a post-dated check early;     take or threaten to take your property unless it can be done legally; or     contact you by postcard. Can I control which debts my payments apply to? Yes. If a debt collector is trying to collect more than one debt from you, the collector must apply any payment you make to the debt you select. Equally important, a debt collector may not apply a payment to a debt you don’t think you owe.Can a debt collector garnish my bank account or my wages?If you don’t pay a debt, a creditor or its debt collector generally can sue you to collect. If they win, the court will enter a judgment against you. The judgment states the amount of money you owe, and allows the creditor or collector to get a garnishment order against you, directing a third party, like your bank, to turn over funds from your account to pay the debt. Wage garnishment happens when your employer withholds part of your compensation to pay your debts. Your wages usually can be garnished only as the result of a court order. Don’t ignore a lawsuit summons. If you do, you lose the opportunity to fight a wage garnishment.Can federal benefits be garnished?Many federal benefits are exempt from garnishment, including:     Social Security Benefits     Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Benefits     Veterans’ Benefits     Civil Service and Federal Retirement and Disability Benefits     Service Members’ Pay     Military Annuities and Survivors’ Benefits     Student Assistance     Railroad Retirement Benefits     Merchant Seamen Wages     Longshoremen’s and Harbor Workers’ Death and Disability Benefits     Foreign Service Retirement and Disability Benefits     Compensation for Injury, Death, or Detention of Employees of U.S. Contractors Outside the U.S.     Federal Emergency Management Agency Federal Disaster Assistance But federal benefits may be garnished under certain circumstances, including to pay delinquent taxes, alimony, child support, or student loans. Do I have any recourse if I think a debt collector has violated the law? You have the right to sue a collector in a state or federal court within one year from the date the law was violated. If you win, the judge can require the collector to pay you for any damages you can prove you suffered because of the illegal collection practices, like lost wages and medical bills. The judge can require the debt collector to pay you up to $1,000, even if you can’t prove that you suffered actual damages. You also can be reimbursed for your attorney’s fees and court costs. A group of people also may sue a debt collector as part of a class action lawsuit and recover money for damages up to $500,000, or one percent of the collector’s net worth, whichever amount is lower. Even if a debt collector violates the FDCPA in trying to collect a debt, the debt does not go away if you owe it.What should I do if a debt collector sues me?If a debt collector files a lawsuit against you to collect a debt, respond to the lawsuit, either personally or through your lawyer, by the date specified in the court papers to preserve your rights. Where do I report a debt collector for an alleged violation?Report any problems you have with a debt collector to your state Attorney General’s office (www.naag.org) and the Federal Trade Commission (www.ftc.gov). Many states have their own debt collection laws that are different from the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Your Attorney General’s office can help you determine your rights under your state’s law.For More InformationTo learn more about debt collection and other credit-related issues, visit www.ftc.gov/credit and MyMoney.gov, the U.S. government’s portal to financial education.The FTC works for the consumer to prevent fraudulent, deceptive, and unfair business practices in the marketplace and to provide information to help consumers spot, stop, and avoid them.

The consumers they threaten never obtained a loan at all or paid it off years ago.Internet payday loans are short-term loans or cash advances, usually for 14 days, made over the Internet via interactive web sites and secured by an agreement authorizing debits of the loan and all fees owed from the consumer’s checking account. These loans typically charge interest rates ranging from 600-800 APR and are unlawful in West Virginia. The scam artists, who speak English with a foreign accent, call themselves “U.S. National Bank,” “Federal Investigation Bureau,” “United Legal Processing” and numerous other phony names. They refuse to disclose real names and addresses and are believed to be operating “off the grid” from homes, automobiles, or from off shore locations or foreign countries, including India. Since the scammers have kept themselves purposely well hidden, thus far no law enforcement agencies have succeeded in locating or shutting them down.The scammers typically pose as law enforcement officers, investigators, lawyers, and bankers and threaten consumers that they will be arrested for “bank fraud” or other fictitious crimes unless money is wired immediately. They simultaneously scare and confuse consumers by using meaningless legalese gobbledygook phrases such as, “We are downloading warrants against you” or “We are filing an affidavit against you.” Consumers who don’t immediately fall for the scam are warned, “Only God can help you now.” The scammers almost always call consumers at work several times a day, and tell their supervisors, “Your employee has committed fraud and is about to be arrested.” Such threats have proven unsettling even to the most savvy consumers and employers who suspect the calls are fraudulent. Attorney General McGraw stated, “Ordinarily my office protects consumers from fraudulent activities by seeking injunctions in court. But legal action cannot be taken until the scam artists can be located. Even then, it is unlikely that the persons behind the fraudulent calls and extortionist threats would obey a court order. In this case, the consumer’s best defense is to be armed with the knowledge of the scam so that all demands for money can be resisted, despite the false but scarey threats of arrest.”McGraw added, “Because the fraudsters make a special point of calling consumers repeatedly at work, employers must understand that the consumers are innocent victims of a criminal enterprise and cannot stop the calls from coming. I also wish to assure the citizens of West Virginia that my office will continue to do everything possible to locate and shut down the outlaw debt collectors.” More information about this fraudulent debt collection scheme is available at the Attorney General’s website, www.wvago.gov/internetloanscam. Any consumers who have been threatened by these persons or wish to file a complaint about another consumer matter may do so by calling the Consumer Protection Hot Line, 1-800-368-8808, or by obtaining a complaint form from the Attorney General’s web site.It's a debt collection scam. And all their threats are false and illegal.This is a very active group of scammers, many of whom are calling from India (and probably other countries) and are in cahoots with a group of American pay day loan scammers. They attempt to extort money from consumers with a myriad of false and illegal threats, and alternately pose as debt collectors, federal and state law enforcement officers, lawyers and bankers. Their trademark is to use meaningless legalese gobblygook phrases like "We are downloading warrants against you" or "We are filing an affidavit against you." Another trademark phrase is to threaten the consumer with something like this ridiculous phrase: "If you don't pay then only God can help you."Typical of many financial scams of this variety, they usually demand payment via Western Union or MoneyGram or credit card. They use any number of phony names such as US National Bank, Federal Investigation Bureau, US Legal Investigation Bureau, Hopkins Law Office, United Legal Processing, Morgan Associates, United Pay Services, National Processing, White Collar Crime Unit and many more.  These criminals also use many phone numbers from many area codes; they're probably using caller-id spoofing software and/or VoIP to disguise their real location.The main thing to remember is that anytime someone calls you demanding money to prevent your arrest, or demanding your lawyer's name so they can sue you, it is ALWAYS a scam. No debt collector (let alone criminals posing as debt collectors) has the authority to have anyone arrested for anything. (And it's illegal to them to threaten such a thing.) And since these foreign dirtbags routinely impersonate law enforcement, it's also important to remember that American law enforcement officers aren't in the business of debt collection.  (Debt is a civil, not a criminal, matter.)The bottom line is, these are criminals trying to steal your money.A consumer posting a complaint about these same scammers at http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-718-831-7157 notes that 718-831-7157 is associated with an India-based "outsourcing" telephone bank.  Though a reverse search on WhitePages.com shows that 718-831-7157 is an unlisted land line in New York City, information on Debtbuyers.Com shows that that number is used by India-based Intellisourze. (Source: http://www.debtbuyers.com/debtbuyers.asp ) My guess is that it's a VoIP phone number.This is another piece of the puzzle that fits in perfectly with other information about this scam. There are some reports on 800Notes that have suggested that the crooks behind this offshore scam are also the crooks behind the notorious Bass/Ellis Crosby & Assoc./States Predisposition scams in Florida and Georgia. The interesting thing is that the number of complaints on here about the US National Bank/US Legal Investigation/Federal Investigation scam skyrocketed *after* April 7, 2008 when Florida obtained a $1.3 million judgment against Ted Ellis Crosby, shutdown his operations and barred him from ever conducting debt collections in Florida (Read http://myfloridalegal.com/newsrel.nsf/newsrel ... 5257424005858A6 ) There's certainly a good chance that the crooks placing these calls from India are doing so on behalf of the American crooks behind the Crosby/Bass/States Predisposition scams.Here's the contact information for the phone bank in India: IntellisOurzE BPO701, Sapphier, Nr.

The Better Business Bureau issued an alert today saying consumers across the country are getting phone calls from bogus debt collectors claiming default on a payday loan. Of course, the consumer needs to pay a large fee to avoid arrest -- as much as $1,000.The caller poses as a lawyer, and may threaten extradition to face trial if the consumer doesn't pay up immediately.What makes these calls alarming -- and perhaps convincing -- is that the perpetrators reference the consumer's personal information, such as the person's Social Security number, driver's license number, previous bank account numbers, home address -- even personal references."The amount of information they have is really troubling," says BBB spokeswoman Alison Southwick. She adds that the amount of data points to a possible security breach.Spread the word to your friends and family: Don't give out personal or financial information to an unknown caller. Scammers can spoof Caller ID to display different numbers, so trust your instincts over technology.The BBB offers these tips:•    Ask the debt collector to provide official documentation which substantiates the debt. •    Do not provide or confirm any bank account, credit card or other personal information over the phone until you have confirmed the legitimacy of the call. •    File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission online if the caller is abusive, uses threats or otherwise violates federal telemarketing laws or the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. •    File a complaint with the Better Business Bureau online if you believe a debt collector is trying to scam you.

I received numerous calls from that number over the past week.  They threatened me with arrest and 3 months in jail for fraud if i did not pay 1035.00 for a debt from 2008. They even said that the person listed as my reference would be arrested as well. I spoke to an attorney and discovered they cannot arrest you for debt in the state of texas. I did not pay.

Read the reports and you'll see the same pattern time and again -- phony organization names, thick foreign accents, and oddly worded threats that are so melodramatic and ridiculous that it's laughable:http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-925-262-1327http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-678-954-6346http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-888-341-4004http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-856-831-0640http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-949-743-1140http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-410-505-8128http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-917-464-2534http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-210-858-6602http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-888-775-2121http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-949-743-1156http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-214-245-1402http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-214-245-0922http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-214-723-5572http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-904-425-2863http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-718-831-7157http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-904-425-2857http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-858-244-0444http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-954-678-9724http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-610-571-3252http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-310-909-8245http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-310-499-9983 http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-888-771-9249   Scammer posting here as GARY and GARRY JONES http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-866-860-4509   Scammer posting here as Mike Hendersonhttp://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-212-500-0839   Scammer posting here as Ricky http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-201-244-7722   Scammer posting as Carole, David Brown and Amandahttp://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-626-200-4646   Scammer placing false postings at this new number as silshan kanniue and Tina – preparing a new number to use.http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-424-354-4270   Scammer placing false postings as Rosehttp://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-888-785-4479   Scammer posting as Robert http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-909-327-4870   Scammer placing false postings as Marry http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-646-274-1143   Scammer placing false postings as Karen Miller http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-561-300-8018   Scammer placing false postings as Marco Polo (real original)http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-877-226-7488   Scammer placing false postings as SAM, David Shttp://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-888-706-7463   Scammer placing false postings as George http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-209-349-7382   Scammer placing false postings as Towanda Robinson, Shannon Walsh, Jack Dawson and Cynthia http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-760-514-0132   scammer placing false postings as Suzy01, Johanna Hall, Cindie McMellon, Michael Dublin, Mark Williams, Carol and Rio  Scam alert: Bogus debt collectorsBy Leslie McFadden • Bankrate.comMonday, Aug. 3Posted 2 p.m.Bankrate reporter Leslie McFadden contributed this entry.This scam isn't technically about credit cards, but it is scary enough to post a warning. The Better Business Bureau issued an alert today saying consumers across the country are getting phone calls from bogus debt collectors claiming default on a payday loan. Of course, the consumer needs to pay a large fee to avoid arrest -- as much as $1,000.The caller poses as a lawyer, and may threaten extradition to face trial if the consumer doesn't pay up immediately.What makes these calls alarming -- and perhaps convincing -- is that the perpetrators reference the consumer's personal information, such as the person's Social Security number, driver's license number, previous bank account numbers, home address -- even personal references."The amount of information they have is really troubling," says BBB spokeswoman Alison Southwick. She adds that the amount of data points to a possible security breach.Spread the word to your friends and family: Don't give out personal or financial information to an unknown caller. Scammers can spoof Caller ID to display different numbers, so trust your instincts over technology.The BBB offers these tips:•    Ask the debt collector to provide official documentation which substantiates the debt. •    Do not provide or confirm any bank account, credit card or other personal information over the phone until you have confirmed the legitimacy of the call. •    File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission online if the caller is abusive, uses threats or otherwise violates federal telemarketing laws or the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. •    File a complaint with the Better Business Bureau online if you believe a debt collector is trying to scam you.

I am on the do not call list, and have been for a year.It doesn't work for these people because they're not telemarketers.  They are scammers! I have been targeted by these same people three times in the last seven months.  Three times, three different numbers.  I've reported them to local, state ans federal authorities, and I've told them that I did, that they were going to prison.  They're stupid as crap cause I told them that they've tried this scam three times now and it's not going to work to mark me off their list, but noooooo... they keep trying.  Bunch of dumba****!!!!  Don't fall for it.  I called them back yesterday and blew a whistle in the guys ear and hung up. Ha ha ha ha!!!  If you don't mind a couple of long distance charges harassing them makes for some mild amusement, and it's kind of cathartic too.

the do not call list is for land lines & cellphones. it's free and provided through the government website www.donotcall.gov there you can list all your phone numbers- they will send you an email with a link to complete the request- this needs to be done within 72 hrs. There is a link to file a complaint as well. Good Luck! Also keep in mind that there are people "out there" who post in attempt to get a rise out of others- try to overlook them. Please pass this info on to friends & family- Good Luck!
