My family kept getting calls to our HOME number for Evelyn Garcia.  This has been our number for a few years now.  They called constantly for close to TWO years.  The calls were mostly answered by the answering machine.  My mom was so aggravated she was about to change our phone number just because of these people.  I simply called the phone number back and I told her that they needed to remove my number from there list and she said that she would do that immediately.  Considering I had previously spoke to someone else and was told the same thing.  I stopped her before she could hang up on me and I told her "that is what I was told previously, let me be very clear.  You are harrassing my whole household calling for a person that has never lived here.  If I receive one more phone call from you, I will report you to the BBB and to consumer services." To which she replied, "you don't have to get nasty" in the most indignant voice (borderline shouting) she could muster and hung up on me before I could reply.  We have never recieved another call.  The 'Do Not Call' list protects you from solicitors but not from credit collections.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but it is indeed Chase Bank. I had the same thing, set up payment plans, however, if who sets up your plan does not correctly itemize the fees, it can and most probably will show up as still over your credit limit or less than the minimum amount due. They fix it but you have to communicate this with them. They always call themselves Member Services, not Chase, and if they were actually living in the states they'd understand that the surname is the last name... they're outsourced obviously, and for that simply ask for a representative in the states, and they'll transfer you. It's not really a big problem.

Just one thing to add to your good advice.  When you save it, put a "Z" in front of their name (I have "Z Chase Me").  This way (if you have a lot) you do not have to swcroll through them all the time.  A lot of cos. call you from different nos. so just "update existing" and add each new no.  Go down the line putting the nos. under mobile, mobile 2, home, work and fax until you used up all options then start a 2nd one "Z chase me 2" etc.It is nice to not have the phone ringing all the time.  I put a distinctive ring to the ones in my contact list that I want to talk to.  The rest have the standard ring.  I add those to contacts after I google to see who it is.

It is really difficult to get someone to help you with this type of crime...the State who licensed Mereidian will only act as a mediator to try to settle any disputes. After some effort, I was able to get my credit card company to take the $5,000 plus charge off of my card.(it is really on hold, under review) My argument is that it is a Federal violation to take up front fees prior to receipt of all documentation. There is a pressumed 3-4 mail day wait before they can take fees...this also includes e-mails) I forwarded this document (and link, see below) to my credit card company. If you read through it, you will see how the law is written. It seems my credit card company will respect our complaint based on the evidence.

I have had the same scam with Meredian and Fortis Title. They told me I was approved for a refinance, I paid them $2,200 which was deposited into Fortis Title. I have been trying to reach people for 6 months and get no return calls. I have asked to speak to management and they are no better. I paid a company thru them $650 for an appraisal, and after all that I have nothing except a loss of 2,850. I have turned this company into the Florida Attorney General for mortgage fraud and I highly suggest you do the same.

I cannot believe that we were also mislead by this so-called company.  They told my husband he was pre-approved and after sending them all our financial documents i.e. bank statements, tax returns, we get a letter from the title company saying we  had stopped the process of the refinance procedure and will not be refunding out $1700.  We did no such thing.  I cannot believe this has happened.  We are in the process of challenging this with our credit card and gathering all the emails, overnight receipts of requested information by them.  Anything else anyone can think we should do let us know.  Thanks..

You're on the money Sharon. After my wife gave them our credit card info (over phone) I did some Gooling, and came up with some bad info on Fortis a/k/a Meridian. I called Kevin Friedman and voiced my concerns re: the negative blogs I was reading about his company. As with all cons jobs, his response was very smooth...they're disgruntled employees, or people who we not qualified for the loan and have an axe to grind. What really struck me, was when he said, "some people just aren't worth what they think they are." That sent chills down my spine...here he has my credit card info, and he's bad mouthing the folks who have been turned down. I knew I would have an uphill battle with them. Their deal is, they hype you up, take your money, send you loan papers and their done. That's how they make a living. Wish there was a class action suit out there against them. Also think our Government would take a fewhours out of their crazy busy schedule and protect us. Apparently, they have been upo to these scams for years.Get the word ou!!!!

Those of you that are writing that you have had a wonderful experience with Meridian Financial and Fortis Title Solution are either employees, shells for the company or in a minority of customers that they actually served legally.  Make no mistake these companies are connected and this is a scam in the highest degree.  To the poster that said why weren't we more diligent you are quite right we dropped the ball.  Most of us are in such financial pain we asked the correct questions but did not see through the correct answers because we wanted to believe this was a honest deal.  It is not honest!!!!!.  In fact check for them on the web, they have changed or modified the sites and Fortis Solutions which had a Costa Mesa address in July no longer exists.  I have filed a complaint with the Attorney General, The Department of Real Estate and the Department of Consumer Affairs.  Of course I have had to change my Visa Card number so no further money could be stolen at least from that account.They do have all the bells and whistles to make you believe they are actually conducting business in a legal manner and a fairly full-proff system on nor refunding your deposits when oh gosh we can't believe this but it looks like for some reason your home doesn't qualify.  We were told out loan was approved and all was good to go, even told to hold off on a trip we were taking so we could sign the escrow papers but alas that was the last we heard from them.  I was able to reach Mr. Arnous on Sept.8 and then advised that the (get this) were in a economic downturn and unfortunatley we needed $15,000 more to close out deal.  UNBELIEVABLE LIARS AND SCAMMERS......In 2007 the owner of Meridian was arrected by the government for insurance fraud and at that time investigations discovered that the Fortis Solutions enities we actually operated by his wife. Please don't fall for the few folks tall tales about how wonderful their experinces were.  These folks are thiefs.  I would be shocked to actually see any of my money returned but I have been in touch with the Attorney General and they have an investigaton going on this company.  Remember make a lot of noise and don't let some paid employee make you feel stupid.  If you gave this company money and didn't get results you are a victum.  Let's work to make sure no other folks get hurt by this bunch of crooks.  All in all as far as I have been able to find out there are about 8 of them in on this.  Hang in there maybe we can make a difference for someone else.Oh by the way disputing the charge is part of the process but unfortunately your card company's hands are pretty well tied too.  I have spoken with them at length.An finally this number should stay on this blog and I hope everyone begins to know it by heart. You will find this number on all do not call lists as well.  Sharon Broffsabroff2@att.net

Thats not true.  They can only charge you if you gave them the secret code off the back of your card.  You probably tried to scam them, lost your rate lock due to the lie and are upset.  I closed a loan with this company and Meredian and everything went exceptionally well.  I didn't have one complaint which was unusal because I am very detail oriented.  These guys did an amazing job, I was able to reach my underwriter day and night, and were honest about the terms of loan.  My rate lock deposit garuanteed my terms and thats what I got when my loan closed in 18 days!!

My ex boyfriend is in Boise State Correctional Institute, and this is the number that comes  up when he calls.  It is not a scam, it is someone trying to get you to answer a call from an inmate somewhere.  They might be calling the wrong number (if you don't know of anyone that should be calling you from jail/prison) but answering the call will not harm you.  You are given a 1-minute free call with information about how to set up a prepaid account for future calls.I know before my ex got his own phone situation figured out, he had other guys call me.  It confused me because I didn't know "Jose Garcia" or "Samuel Smith" so I kept hanging up.  Then it hit me who it was, and I answered.

My daughter in-law is in a correctional facility in Idaho and they use a third party company for making out side calls to cell phones and you need to have an account setup.

I hung up the first time and that's when Steven called me back. LOLThey had some of my personal info: my last 4 digits of my SSN, my work #, my sister's name and my bank name, and email address.After telling Becky this was crazy and ridiculous she threatened I would never get out of court, wouldn't tell me their address, said I should have checked my emails to submit payment. I said I never open any emails from people I don't know. Steven said well it's not my fault you don't read your emails. I asked why did I not receive any notifications by U.S. mail? He said because it is illegal. They obviously don't live in the U.S. LAME-O's!I just checked my credit report last month and there is nothing on there I am unaware of.

Nope.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.

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.

Call or write your local Secret Service field office to alert them to the details of this attempted extortion. The addresses and phone numbers for the local Secret Service field offices are listed at http://www.secretservice.gov/field_offices.shtml or in your phone book.2.    Alert the FBI at https://tips.fbi.gov Be sure to tell the FBI that you are being targeted by extortionists over the phone. And if the crooks claim to be law enforcement or lawyers, officers of the court or bankers, be sure to include that information in your report.3.    File a complaint with your local police. Most police departments will take a report over the phone.  Be sure to tell them that you're being targeted by an extortionist and give them all the details.4.    File a complaint your state's attorney general, the contact information for whom is at www.wvago.gov5.    File a complaint online with The Federal Trade Commission at https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/FTC_Wizard.aspx?Lang=enIf these crooks call back, promise them nothing, pay them nothing and tell them nothing other than that you know they're a scam and that you've reported them to law enforcement. (And be sure to report them to all the agencies above each time they call you.)By the way, here's just a small sample of numbers used by this particular group of scammers. 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 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 was told they had my voice on a recording approving the loan.  I never received a loan or left my voice approving a loan.  When we called the number back, they told us they would see us in court on Friday.  I have never received any notification whatsoever about this $300 loan.  They disconnected our call and are not answering any of our phone calls.  They must have caller id.

I'm in Alberta.  Same thing as above, multiple times a week.  It's probably part of an auto-dialer network trolling for connected phone numbers, and there doesn't seem to be a manned switchboard to a identifiable company.  The same abuser appears to be using numbers in Ontario, Michigan, among others, as identical messages (lowering or consolidating credit card debt) are used.  Frankly, it's getting annoying.  Yes, I'm also listed on the federal do-not-call list.

I've had them call me several times over the span of the last few months, even though I've been on the do-not-call list for several years.  I didn't record the number the last times, but recorded it as 204-353-2459 this time so I could file a report.They try to get you to consolidate credit card balances.  When you press a key to talk to a live representative, there is a message about how the reps cannot remove names/numbers from their call lists.  "To be removed, press 2", which immediately hangs up if you press it.  And yet they keep calling me.
