A man called himself Mr. Burrows  called a former employer. I yelled at him asking why is he harrassing .other persons I know. He said he was authorized to collet a debt based on a judgement against me. When I asked for proof and told him I have to consult my lawyer he threaten to garnish my wages. G. Delano Burrows refuse to produce required proof  so no money will ever change hands regardless of what a collector records if its not on paper with valid signatures it does not mean a thing.

I keep getting calls at work. I answer the main number and tell them I'm not here because I cannot take personal calls. They tell me "Glenda has won a settlement and I'm just trying to let her know" Right. Then they say, "Glenda just called me and I'm returning her call" I keep saying, "Glenda isn't here, and she can't take personal calls"They then asked to speak to my human resources dept. to garnish my wages. I called their 800 number and asked to speak with someone regarding their employee calling my work number and threatening to garnish my wages. The woman asked me my last name. I told her I wasn't giving her any information until I spoke with someone from her company first. She told me she was ending the phone call. I thought so. Stupid people.

I received voicemail message from this firm today as well stating they had a "legal matter" to discuss with me and if I had retained an attorney they could speak to him. My caller ID registered 770-234-0101 but the call back number left was 800-935-1139. I am very grateful for this website as, after reading the posts, I have no intention of calling this joker back as I have no bad debts and nothing in collection. No sense in getting my blood pressure up for nothing. I just wanted to be sure people were aware of BOTH numbers so they know not to answer the calls.

I'm so glad I found this site!! I looked up some numbers that were calling me but not leaving messages. I even had one call me really late at night and then demand that I pay them right away! I told them It Was Too Late to call- I've actually won two lawsuits against debt collectors for violating it the time ordinance thing. It's been around for a long time, you'd think they would know better! If they are harassing you, it's ILLEGAL! If they tell anyone besides you or your wife/husband about the debt, it's ILLEGAL!! If they are really nasty with you (swearing!), that's against the law too! Don't let the debt collectors harass you, know what they can do and what they can't. You can even talk with an attorney about it. Try Mark Carey Law Office at 877-909-MARK, That’s who sued them for me and helped me with everything!

Do not pay these people.  They are scam artists.  Remember you cannot be arrested for failure to pay a debt in the United States (debtors prisons were outlawed before the American Revolution).  If they say they are lawyers, ask for their bar number and immediately report it to the Bar Association and Attorney General for the state they are licensed.  Do a google search for payday loan scams and california and indian.  You will see that these people are ripping good folks off for millions for loans they have paid off or have been written off a long time ago.  The biggest problem is when they transfer you to another number it is usually a call center in India.

We did this dance 10 or 15 times, until I finally just let him sit silently on the phone. Late-night callback goes to voicemail for "AVRS" or some nonsense. Filed FTC complaint, and had the number blocked.Similar situation happened about a year ago. They're using my maiden name, and states I've lived in before I moved here. Obviously a scam.

I always see their number "Highlands" on my caller ID but I have never been home to answer. I answered tonight and this guy named Tyreed was trying to offer me a free stay at this "resort". I told him no because I'm only 19 and I'd have to be older to get a room anywhere. He asked me if I was single and I said "No, I've been taken for 3 years." He asked me if I was faithful and if he could get my number and take me to a club. He also said I sound sexy and he wanted to do sexual things with me...yeah, great impression trying to make people believe you are professional in business.

These type of calls is "Voice Broadcasting", you can google it....cost as low as 1¢ per call.Different company use different name, like "Heather" is from company A, and "Rachel" is from company B.First, I think the solution is to have a phone with "Call Blocking" feature build-in. So you don't have to pay montly fees for blocking individual numbers. Second, they want to get their message across to you by a breif message left on your answering machine. So, I think turn the AM off, they can only call you once but not twice because you use your phone to block that number. Third, If both option is not available to you, then check with your phone provider, add CALL FORWARDING into your current package. Forward it to a "not in service" number.Also you must file complaints to Do-Not-Call.....Someone from another thread had discover the person who run these type of calls...worth to take a look....or call him and ask, see what he know....may be this number is run by his associate, friends or family member."http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-403-255-8807"----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Good Samaritan replies to Jasmin27 Jan 2012This telephone number is associated with http://www.creditcardsupport.netWhois results indicate creditcardsupport.net was registered in Pakistan by the administrator of this email address: faraz@pakcct.comWhois results for http://pakcct.com returned this information:Administrative Contact:Ali, Murad murad@dialer4rent.comEDT Systems INC3604 Flagstone DrCarrollton, Texas 75007United States(972) 394-1165 Fax -- (972) 394-9128The pakcct.com website also indicates that it was designed and operated by Umair Ali and links to his personal website: http://umairali.comWhois results for http://umairali.com/ returned this information:Administrative Contact:Plasticwala, Murad murad@dialer4rent.comEDT Systems INC3604 Flagstone DrCarrollton, Texas 75007United States(972) 394-1165 Fax -- (972) 394-9128*Note: Same addressUmair Ali has listed his personal phone number on his website: (469) 892-8637.

I received a call from this number on my wireless today, it was an automated message claiming that because I am a very important customer to Bell, I am entitled to a prize, press 1 to claim.  Being a former Bell employee, I can tell you quite confidently that this was not Bell, and this message is totally bogus.  Please do not press 1 if you receive this message, as it may lead to unwarranted charges on your bill.

These type of calls is "Voice Broadcasting", you can google it....cost as low as 1¢ per call.Different company use different name, like "Heather" is from company A, and "Rachel" is from company B.First, I think the solution is to have a phone with "Call Blocking" feature build-in. So you don't have to pay montly fees for blocking individual numbers. Second, they want to get their message across to you by a breif message left on your answering machine. So, I think turn the AM off, they can only call you once but not twice because you use your phone to block that number. Third, If both option is not available to you, then check with your phone provider, add CALL FORWARDING into your current package. Forward it to a "not in service" number.Also you must file complaints to Do-Not-Call.....Someone from another thread had discover the person who run these type of calls...worth to take a look....or call him and ask, see what he know....may be this number is run by his associate, friends or family member."http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-403-255-8807"----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Good Samaritan replies to Jasmin27 Jan 2012This telephone number is associated with http://www.creditcardsupport.netWhois results indicate creditcardsupport.net was registered in Pakistan by the administrator of this email address: faraz@pakcct.comWhois results for http://pakcct.com returned this information:Administrative Contact:Ali, Murad murad@dialer4rent.comEDT Systems INC3604 Flagstone DrCarrollton, Texas 75007United States(972) 394-1165 Fax -- (972) 394-9128The pakcct.com website also indicates that it was designed and operated by Umair Ali and links to his personal website: http://umairali.comWhois results for http://umairali.com/ returned this information:Administrative Contact:Plasticwala, Murad murad@dialer4rent.comEDT Systems INC3604 Flagstone DrCarrollton, Texas 75007United States(972) 394-1165 Fax -- (972) 394-9128*Note: Same addressUmair Ali has listed his personal phone number on his website: (469) 892-8637.

I received a call from this number on my wireless today, it was an automated message claiming that because I am a very important customer to Bell, I am entitled to a prize, press 1 to claim.  Being a former Bell employee, I can tell you quite confidently that this was not Bell, and this message is totally bogus.  Please do not press 1 if you receive this message, as it may lead to unwarranted charges on your bill.

The same thing basically happened to me.  In September, I responded to a job ad which looked legitimate (on Craig's List).  It was also for a receptionist position.  I received an email asking me to pay for a credit report, because they were ready to hire me.  Of course, that tipped me off.  Since then, I have gotten a phone call from this same number on 10/25/2010.  They must have gotten my number from my resume when I responded to the job ad.  I didn't answer the call from this number, but now that I know who's behind it, I won't.  Everyone beware of answering these job ads and how much info you give out.

its called a MONEY MULE scam You are either laundering money - or the checks are counterfeit - guaranteed to BOUNCE. Identity Thieves Prowling for Job SeekersFake job ads up 345% as recession creates opportunities for scam artistshttp://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2009/03/job_scams.htmlMarch 9, 2009 With the unemployment rate rising and living costs going up, more people are looking for new jobs or second jobs. These are ideal conditions, it turns out, if you’re an identity thief. Job seekers will register with employment agencies, check employment ads, mail out unsolicited resumes, network, post resumes on job search sites and search Craigslist. In fact, the UK Association for Payment Clearing Services which tracks the prevalence of fake job ads said that fake ads are up 345 percent over the past three years. Unfortunately identity thieves are taking advantage of these uncertain economic times to scam job seekers and gather personal identifying information.The Identity Theft Resource Center offers these tips: • Protect your Social Security Number by limiting how many people see it. Never put your SSN on a resume. Let a company ask for it when they consider you a serious applicant. To minimize your risk, you also may want to not list your home address and just put your city and state on the resume. • Consider opening a separate email account for your job search and keeping your primary email address private. Placing your email address on a resume could open the door to spam and phishing, account verification, and other email scams. (The recent Monster.com breach exposed resumes and email addresses. If you had placed your Social Security number or home email address on your resume, you could have made yourself a target.) • Check out a company you found on a website carefully before giving them your information, for example Craig’s List. Anyone can create a website, but it doesn’t mean that they are a real company. You can find information on a company through the Better Business Bureau or the State Attorney General where the company is located. You can also Google the business to find out more about them. Most reputable companies will have a significant presence on the Internet, not just a few mentions. • Avoid any website that requires you to “pre-register” with your SSN, home address or driver’s license number. Also, you should not be required to prepay to view job listings. Both these requirements are strong indicators of a scam. • Update your computer security prior to emailing resumes and receiving email correspondence. Making sure your computer security is currently updated against viruses, Trojans, and other types of computer malware can help to protect you from any intrusion in an attachment you might receive. • Make sure the person who contacted you actually works at the listed company and is not someone who has posted a job pretending to be part of a company. Does the URL address include the name of the company? If not, who actually sent it? Call the company involved, and ask for the Human Resources Department. Some companies recommend not responding via email to any person asking for more information, but rather to call the company directly. Rarely does a company hire someone sight unseen. • Be wary of some common job scams. Avoid any company, especially a foreign company that wants to hire you as a “payment representative “or” accounts receivable clerk.” This scam indicates that you get to keep a percentage of all checks or money orders you place in a bank account for them. Do not open a bank account for a company. You will be the responsible party should any money laundering occur, or if checks bounce. This is called a “money mule scam.” Another scam is to notify you that you are one of the finalists for a job, and they need your Social Security number to do a background check. If you have not had a face-to-face interview with the company, you should be very skeptical. No one gets a job based on a resume alone.Finally, watch out for the “work-at home” scams, especially those that ask you to “forward” packages you receive to a third party. That package may contain stolen goods or illegal drugs. There is rarely need to have a private party as a “freight forwarder.” The safest ways to job search are to use local want ads, visit the unemployment office, use temp employment services, tell friends and family about your search, and network via professional groups and business acquaintances. When contacting a local company you can meet them, see the facilities, and ask acquaintances in that industry about their reputation. Consider not contacting foreign companies, especially those from Nigeria, Russia and third world countries. Should you decide to use the Internet, ITRC strongly recommends that you read the safety tips on job seeking websites and report any suspicious posting to the website concerned.

It hardly ever works out that way, however. Now, the State of Florida has issued subpoenas to eight firms suspected of running employment or work-at-home scams. "Unemployed Floridians are particularly vulnerable to scams that falsely promise quick fixes for people who are jobless," said Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum. "With the unemployment rate in Florida at record highs, we need to be vigilant in our efforts against people looking to capitalize on someone else's difficulties." One of the firms receiving a subpoena is Career Services International, based in Orlando. McCollum's office is investigating allegations that the company misrepresents available services and collects fees for those services, but fails to provide them. Consumers have complained that the quality of service was not what the company had promised and indicated problems with missed deadlines, untrained employees, and lack of advertised expertise. Federal-State CrackdownThe subpoena is one of a series issued over the past several months targeting employment scams and was announced today to highlight the office's joint enforcement effort with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)and several other states. Seven other Florida companies have also received subpoenas investigating potential violations of Florida's Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act. Allegations include misleading or deceptive marketing of work-from-home opportunities as well as job placement services and other Internet business ventures. The other firms under investigation include: • Coretech Media LLC, doing business as Netcadetpro.com and Net Money Training, located in St. Petersburg; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices related to home business opportunity kits advertised over the internet • Darling Angel Pin Creations, Inc., located in Brandon; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices involving work at home job opportunity • GC Displays, Inc., doing business as Atlanticpacificonline.com, located in Clearwater; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices involving job placement services • Home Biz Ventures, LLC, doing business as Bidfuel.com and Blogtoolkit.com, located in Clearwater; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices involving internet business opportunity which offers on-line membership access to training and products to sell on auction sites • My Career Corp., Inc., located in Tampa; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices involving job placement services • Pacific Webworks, Inc., located in Salt Lake City, Utah; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices involving work from home opportunities • Viable Marketing Corp., located in Seminole; Unauthorized recurring charges associated with negative option "work at home" internet business opportunity McCollum says consumers should be wary of any company offering employment positions that require little or no education but claim to pay high wages, companies that charge an up-front fee for their services or products, companies that offer "memberships" to internet-based employment opportunities, and any other opportunity that sounds too good to be true.

In addition, the sweep includes 43 criminal actions by the Department of Justice, many involving the substantial assistance of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.The agency also announced partnerships with the online job placement service Monster.com, the search engine Bing and the centralized network of online communities Craigslist to help job seekers recognize job scams so they can avoid being victimized. Monster, Careerbuilder, Bing and Craigslist will display FTC consumer education material to people who are using the companies' Web sites to look for jobs."Federal and state law enforcement officials will not tolerate those who take advantage of consumers in times of economic misfortune," said David C. Vladeck, Director of the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection. "If you falsely advertise that you will connect people with jobs or with opportunities for them to make money working from home, we will shut you down. We will give your assets to the people you scammed, and, when it's appropriate, we'll refer you to criminal authorities for prosecution."To help consumers avoid being conned by employment scams, the FTC has produced a new consumer education video in English and Spanish.Read more: http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2010/02/jobs_scams.html#ixzz0gesTr4l6

I may have found a connection to this. 1-8-10 I applied to a "Front Desk Receptionist" job, posted on craigslist (12-31-09 at 9:17am). It sounded like an OFFICE job. Jan.9th I got a reply from a "UM Plastics describing a different "work from home" job, not an OFFICE job. Then, on 1-11-10 at 11:50am I get a call from #954-250-0112. The scam: YOU get checks from people for items auctioned on the internet, YOU cash the checks, keep 5% commission and send the rest to the scammer. Since YOU type records & keep them in your home & email the scammer summary reports of these transactions, YOU are the "Record Keeper", by the IRS rules and are fully responsible & liable, legally. Nothing can be traced, legally to the scammer. DO NOT cash these checks. An example is given for a John R. Smith transaction. More about this scam is at www.scamwarners.com. Hopethis helps someone avoid a legal battle & messed up credit. Good Luck!

Got a call from this number on Saturday 2012-07-07, I did not answer and let it ring (4 rings).  The Caller ID says "HIGHLANDS", and I've gotten that name from 480-350-9607, 480-894-9342 and 480-350-9910 before, but this number is new to me:480-894-9398 @ 12:07pm - HIGHLANDSI suspect this is from the same scam organization that has been calling me constantly from a variety of numbers for over three months now, more detail and numbers in my posts here:http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-920-560-4999/7

They called me, asked me to take a survey about my health, I told them I wasn't interested and then the guy VERY RUDELY said "Its important information about your health, if you aren't interested about your health, you're not worth my time" and hung up on me. I wonder why they don't sell much product....

The same thing basically happened to me.  In September, I responded to a job ad which looked legitimate (on Craig's List).  It was also for a receptionist position.  I received an email asking me to pay for a credit report, because they were ready to hire me.  Of course, that tipped me off.  Since then, I have gotten a phone call from this same number on 10/25/2010.  They must have gotten my number from my resume when I responded to the job ad.  I didn't answer the call from this number, but now that I know who's behind it, I won't.  Everyone beware of answering these job ads and how much info you give out.

its called a MONEY MULE scam You are either laundering money - or the checks are counterfeit - guaranteed to BOUNCE. Identity Thieves Prowling for Job SeekersFake job ads up 345% as recession creates opportunities for scam artistshttp://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2009/03/job_scams.htmlMarch 9, 2009 With the unemployment rate rising and living costs going up, more people are looking for new jobs or second jobs. These are ideal conditions, it turns out, if you’re an identity thief. Job seekers will register with employment agencies, check employment ads, mail out unsolicited resumes, network, post resumes on job search sites and search Craigslist. In fact, the UK Association for Payment Clearing Services which tracks the prevalence of fake job ads said that fake ads are up 345 percent over the past three years. Unfortunately identity thieves are taking advantage of these uncertain economic times to scam job seekers and gather personal identifying information.The Identity Theft Resource Center offers these tips: • Protect your Social Security Number by limiting how many people see it. Never put your SSN on a resume. Let a company ask for it when they consider you a serious applicant. To minimize your risk, you also may want to not list your home address and just put your city and state on the resume. • Consider opening a separate email account for your job search and keeping your primary email address private. Placing your email address on a resume could open the door to spam and phishing, account verification, and other email scams. (The recent Monster.com breach exposed resumes and email addresses. If you had placed your Social Security number or home email address on your resume, you could have made yourself a target.) • Check out a company you found on a website carefully before giving them your information, for example Craig’s List. Anyone can create a website, but it doesn’t mean that they are a real company. You can find information on a company through the Better Business Bureau or the State Attorney General where the company is located. You can also Google the business to find out more about them. Most reputable companies will have a significant presence on the Internet, not just a few mentions. • Avoid any website that requires you to “pre-register” with your SSN, home address or driver’s license number. Also, you should not be required to prepay to view job listings. Both these requirements are strong indicators of a scam. • Update your computer security prior to emailing resumes and receiving email correspondence. Making sure your computer security is currently updated against viruses, Trojans, and other types of computer malware can help to protect you from any intrusion in an attachment you might receive. • Make sure the person who contacted you actually works at the listed company and is not someone who has posted a job pretending to be part of a company. Does the URL address include the name of the company? If not, who actually sent it? Call the company involved, and ask for the Human Resources Department. Some companies recommend not responding via email to any person asking for more information, but rather to call the company directly. Rarely does a company hire someone sight unseen. • Be wary of some common job scams. Avoid any company, especially a foreign company that wants to hire you as a “payment representative “or” accounts receivable clerk.” This scam indicates that you get to keep a percentage of all checks or money orders you place in a bank account for them. Do not open a bank account for a company. You will be the responsible party should any money laundering occur, or if checks bounce. This is called a “money mule scam.” Another scam is to notify you that you are one of the finalists for a job, and they need your Social Security number to do a background check. If you have not had a face-to-face interview with the company, you should be very skeptical. No one gets a job based on a resume alone.Finally, watch out for the “work-at home” scams, especially those that ask you to “forward” packages you receive to a third party. That package may contain stolen goods or illegal drugs. There is rarely need to have a private party as a “freight forwarder.” The safest ways to job search are to use local want ads, visit the unemployment office, use temp employment services, tell friends and family about your search, and network via professional groups and business acquaintances. When contacting a local company you can meet them, see the facilities, and ask acquaintances in that industry about their reputation. Consider not contacting foreign companies, especially those from Nigeria, Russia and third world countries. Should you decide to use the Internet, ITRC strongly recommends that you read the safety tips on job seeking websites and report any suspicious posting to the website concerned.

It hardly ever works out that way, however. Now, the State of Florida has issued subpoenas to eight firms suspected of running employment or work-at-home scams. "Unemployed Floridians are particularly vulnerable to scams that falsely promise quick fixes for people who are jobless," said Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum. "With the unemployment rate in Florida at record highs, we need to be vigilant in our efforts against people looking to capitalize on someone else's difficulties." One of the firms receiving a subpoena is Career Services International, based in Orlando. McCollum's office is investigating allegations that the company misrepresents available services and collects fees for those services, but fails to provide them. Consumers have complained that the quality of service was not what the company had promised and indicated problems with missed deadlines, untrained employees, and lack of advertised expertise. Federal-State CrackdownThe subpoena is one of a series issued over the past several months targeting employment scams and was announced today to highlight the office's joint enforcement effort with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)and several other states. Seven other Florida companies have also received subpoenas investigating potential violations of Florida's Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act. Allegations include misleading or deceptive marketing of work-from-home opportunities as well as job placement services and other Internet business ventures. The other firms under investigation include: • Coretech Media LLC, doing business as Netcadetpro.com and Net Money Training, located in St. Petersburg; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices related to home business opportunity kits advertised over the internet • Darling Angel Pin Creations, Inc., located in Brandon; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices involving work at home job opportunity • GC Displays, Inc., doing business as Atlanticpacificonline.com, located in Clearwater; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices involving job placement services • Home Biz Ventures, LLC, doing business as Bidfuel.com and Blogtoolkit.com, located in Clearwater; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices involving internet business opportunity which offers on-line membership access to training and products to sell on auction sites • My Career Corp., Inc., located in Tampa; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices involving job placement services • Pacific Webworks, Inc., located in Salt Lake City, Utah; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices involving work from home opportunities • Viable Marketing Corp., located in Seminole; Unauthorized recurring charges associated with negative option "work at home" internet business opportunity McCollum says consumers should be wary of any company offering employment positions that require little or no education but claim to pay high wages, companies that charge an up-front fee for their services or products, companies that offer "memberships" to internet-based employment opportunities, and any other opportunity that sounds too good to be true.

In addition, the sweep includes 43 criminal actions by the Department of Justice, many involving the substantial assistance of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.The agency also announced partnerships with the online job placement service Monster.com, the search engine Bing and the centralized network of online communities Craigslist to help job seekers recognize job scams so they can avoid being victimized. Monster, Careerbuilder, Bing and Craigslist will display FTC consumer education material to people who are using the companies' Web sites to look for jobs."Federal and state law enforcement officials will not tolerate those who take advantage of consumers in times of economic misfortune," said David C. Vladeck, Director of the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection. "If you falsely advertise that you will connect people with jobs or with opportunities for them to make money working from home, we will shut you down. We will give your assets to the people you scammed, and, when it's appropriate, we'll refer you to criminal authorities for prosecution."To help consumers avoid being conned by employment scams, the FTC has produced a new consumer education video in English and Spanish.Read more: http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2010/02/jobs_scams.html#ixzz0gesTr4l6

I may have found a connection to this. 1-8-10 I applied to a "Front Desk Receptionist" job, posted on craigslist (12-31-09 at 9:17am). It sounded like an OFFICE job. Jan.9th I got a reply from a "UM Plastics describing a different "work from home" job, not an OFFICE job. Then, on 1-11-10 at 11:50am I get a call from #954-250-0112. The scam: YOU get checks from people for items auctioned on the internet, YOU cash the checks, keep 5% commission and send the rest to the scammer. Since YOU type records & keep them in your home & email the scammer summary reports of these transactions, YOU are the "Record Keeper", by the IRS rules and are fully responsible & liable, legally. Nothing can be traced, legally to the scammer. DO NOT cash these checks. An example is given for a John R. Smith transaction. More about this scam is at www.scamwarners.com. Hopethis helps someone avoid a legal battle & messed up credit. Good Luck!

I told him no because I'm only 19 and I'd have to be older to get a room anywhere. He asked me if I was single and I said "No, I've been taken for 3 years." He asked me if I was faithful and if he could get my number and take me to a club.

I'm so glad I found this site!! I looked up some numbers that were calling me but not leaving messages. I even had one call me really late at night and then demand that I pay them right away! I told them It Was Too Late to call- I've actually won two lawsuits against debt collectors for violating it the time ordinance thing. It's been around for a long time, you'd think they would know better! If they are harassing you, it's ILLEGAL! If they tell anyone besides you or your wife/husband about the debt, it's ILLEGAL!! If they are really nasty with you (swearing!), that's against the law too! Don't let the debt collectors harass you, know what they can do and what they can't. You can even talk with an attorney about it. Try Mark Carey Law Office at 877-909-MARK, That’s who sued them for me and helped me with everything!

its called a MONEY MULE scam You are either laundering money - or the checks are counterfeit - guaranteed to BOUNCE. Identity Thieves Prowling for Job SeekersFake job ads up 345% as recession creates opportunities for scam artistshttp://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2009/03/job_scams.htmlMarch 9, 2009 With the unemployment rate rising and living costs going up, more people are looking for new jobs or second jobs. These are ideal conditions, it turns out, if you’re an identity thief. Job seekers will register with employment agencies, check employment ads, mail out unsolicited resumes, network, post resumes on job search sites and search Craigslist. In fact, the UK Association for Payment Clearing Services which tracks the prevalence of fake job ads said that fake ads are up 345 percent over the past three years. Unfortunately identity thieves are taking advantage of these uncertain economic times to scam job seekers and gather personal identifying information.The Identity Theft Resource Center offers these tips: • Protect your Social Security Number by limiting how many people see it. Never put your SSN on a resume. Let a company ask for it when they consider you a serious applicant. To minimize your risk, you also may want to not list your home address and just put your city and state on the resume. • Consider opening a separate email account for your job search and keeping your primary email address private. Placing your email address on a resume could open the door to spam and phishing, account verification, and other email scams. (The recent Monster.com breach exposed resumes and email addresses. If you had placed your Social Security number or home email address on your resume, you could have made yourself a target.) • Check out a company you found on a website carefully before giving them your information, for example Craig’s List. Anyone can create a website, but it doesn’t mean that they are a real company. You can find information on a company through the Better Business Bureau or the State Attorney General where the company is located. You can also Google the business to find out more about them. Most reputable companies will have a significant presence on the Internet, not just a few mentions. • Avoid any website that requires you to “pre-register” with your SSN, home address or driver’s license number. Also, you should not be required to prepay to view job listings. Both these requirements are strong indicators of a scam. • Update your computer security prior to emailing resumes and receiving email correspondence. Making sure your computer security is currently updated against viruses, Trojans, and other types of computer malware can help to protect you from any intrusion in an attachment you might receive. • Make sure the person who contacted you actually works at the listed company and is not someone who has posted a job pretending to be part of a company. Does the URL address include the name of the company? If not, who actually sent it? Call the company involved, and ask for the Human Resources Department. Some companies recommend not responding via email to any person asking for more information, but rather to call the company directly. Rarely does a company hire someone sight unseen. • Be wary of some common job scams. Avoid any company, especially a foreign company that wants to hire you as a “payment representative “or” accounts receivable clerk.” This scam indicates that you get to keep a percentage of all checks or money orders you place in a bank account for them. Do not open a bank account for a company. You will be the responsible party should any money laundering occur, or if checks bounce. This is called a “money mule scam.” Another scam is to notify you that you are one of the finalists for a job, and they need your Social Security number to do a background check. If you have not had a face-to-face interview with the company, you should be very skeptical. No one gets a job based on a resume alone.Finally, watch out for the “work-at home” scams, especially those that ask you to “forward” packages you receive to a third party. That package may contain stolen goods or illegal drugs. There is rarely need to have a private party as a “freight forwarder.” The safest ways to job search are to use local want ads, visit the unemployment office, use temp employment services, tell friends and family about your search, and network via professional groups and business acquaintances. When contacting a local company you can meet them, see the facilities, and ask acquaintances in that industry about their reputation. Consider not contacting foreign companies, especially those from Nigeria, Russia and third world countries. Should you decide to use the Internet, ITRC strongly recommends that you read the safety tips on job seeking websites and report any suspicious posting to the website concerned.

It hardly ever works out that way, however. Now, the State of Florida has issued subpoenas to eight firms suspected of running employment or work-at-home scams. "Unemployed Floridians are particularly vulnerable to scams that falsely promise quick fixes for people who are jobless," said Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum. "With the unemployment rate in Florida at record highs, we need to be vigilant in our efforts against people looking to capitalize on someone else's difficulties." One of the firms receiving a subpoena is Career Services International, based in Orlando. McCollum's office is investigating allegations that the company misrepresents available services and collects fees for those services, but fails to provide them. Consumers have complained that the quality of service was not what the company had promised and indicated problems with missed deadlines, untrained employees, and lack of advertised expertise. Federal-State CrackdownThe subpoena is one of a series issued over the past several months targeting employment scams and was announced today to highlight the office's joint enforcement effort with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)and several other states. Seven other Florida companies have also received subpoenas investigating potential violations of Florida's Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act. Allegations include misleading or deceptive marketing of work-from-home opportunities as well as job placement services and other Internet business ventures. The other firms under investigation include: • Coretech Media LLC, doing business as Netcadetpro.com and Net Money Training, located in St. Petersburg; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices related to home business opportunity kits advertised over the internet • Darling Angel Pin Creations, Inc., located in Brandon; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices involving work at home job opportunity • GC Displays, Inc., doing business as Atlanticpacificonline.com, located in Clearwater; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices involving job placement services • Home Biz Ventures, LLC, doing business as Bidfuel.com and Blogtoolkit.com, located in Clearwater; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices involving internet business opportunity which offers on-line membership access to training and products to sell on auction sites • My Career Corp., Inc., located in Tampa; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices involving job placement services • Pacific Webworks, Inc., located in Salt Lake City, Utah; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices involving work from home opportunities • Viable Marketing Corp., located in Seminole; Unauthorized recurring charges associated with negative option "work at home" internet business opportunity McCollum says consumers should be wary of any company offering employment positions that require little or no education but claim to pay high wages, companies that charge an up-front fee for their services or products, companies that offer "memberships" to internet-based employment opportunities, and any other opportunity that sounds too good to be true.

In addition, the sweep includes 43 criminal actions by the Department of Justice, many involving the substantial assistance of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.The agency also announced partnerships with the online job placement service Monster.com, the search engine Bing and the centralized network of online communities Craigslist to help job seekers recognize job scams so they can avoid being victimized. Monster, Careerbuilder, Bing and Craigslist will display FTC consumer education material to people who are using the companies' Web sites to look for jobs."Federal and state law enforcement officials will not tolerate those who take advantage of consumers in times of economic misfortune," said David C. Vladeck, Director of the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection. "If you falsely advertise that you will connect people with jobs or with opportunities for them to make money working from home, we will shut you down. We will give your assets to the people you scammed, and, when it's appropriate, we'll refer you to criminal authorities for prosecution."To help consumers avoid being conned by employment scams, the FTC has produced a new consumer education video in English and Spanish.Read more: http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2010/02/jobs_scams.html#ixzz0gesTr4l6

I may have found a connection to this. 1-8-10 I applied to a "Front Desk Receptionist" job, posted on craigslist (12-31-09 at 9:17am). It sounded like an OFFICE job. Jan.9th I got a reply from a "UM Plastics describing a different "work from home" job, not an OFFICE job. Then, on 1-11-10 at 11:50am I get a call from #954-250-0112. The scam: YOU get checks from people for items auctioned on the internet, YOU cash the checks, keep 5% commission and send the rest to the scammer. Since YOU type records & keep them in your home & email the scammer summary reports of these transactions, YOU are the "Record Keeper", by the IRS rules and are fully responsible & liable, legally. Nothing can be traced, legally to the scammer. DO NOT cash these checks. An example is given for a John R. Smith transaction. More about this scam is at www.scamwarners.com. Hopethis helps someone avoid a legal battle & messed up credit. Good Luck!

Just got off the phone with our friend John Santana "THE DEA Special Agent". Left me a couple of voicemails last week. Called the number. An African American sounding female answered the phone. Sounded like a cell phone with bad reception. Then Poorly identified herself but I couldn't make out what she said except the question of who I wanted to talk to. I said John Santana. At that point I hear a lot of cheesy dialing tones transferring the call to wherever this dude is. When he answered the phone he struggled figuring out who was returning his call asking if he had left the message last week. It was actually yesterday. So then he pretends to know, gets himself together and that is when I tore into him. He finally freaked out, I guess, and the call dropped. Figure that.

Should you decide to use the Internet, ITRC strongly recommends that you read the safety tips on job seeking websites and report any suspicious posting to the website concerned.

It hardly ever works out that way, however. Now, the State of Florida has issued subpoenas to eight firms suspected of running employment or work-at-home scams. "Unemployed Floridians are particularly vulnerable to scams that falsely promise quick fixes for people who are jobless," said Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum. "With the unemployment rate in Florida at record highs, we need to be vigilant in our efforts against people looking to capitalize on someone else's difficulties." One of the firms receiving a subpoena is Career Services International, based in Orlando. McCollum's office is investigating allegations that the company misrepresents available services and collects fees for those services, but fails to provide them. Consumers have complained that the quality of service was not what the company had promised and indicated problems with missed deadlines, untrained employees, and lack of advertised expertise. Federal-State CrackdownThe subpoena is one of a series issued over the past several months targeting employment scams and was announced today to highlight the office's joint enforcement effort with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)and several other states. Seven other Florida companies have also received subpoenas investigating potential violations of Florida's Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act. Allegations include misleading or deceptive marketing of work-from-home opportunities as well as job placement services and other Internet business ventures. The other firms under investigation include: • Coretech Media LLC, doing business as Netcadetpro.com and Net Money Training, located in St. Petersburg; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices related to home business opportunity kits advertised over the internet • Darling Angel Pin Creations, Inc., located in Brandon; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices involving work at home job opportunity • GC Displays, Inc., doing business as Atlanticpacificonline.com, located in Clearwater; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices involving job placement services • Home Biz Ventures, LLC, doing business as Bidfuel.com and Blogtoolkit.com, located in Clearwater; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices involving internet business opportunity which offers on-line membership access to training and products to sell on auction sites • My Career Corp., Inc., located in Tampa; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices involving job placement services • Pacific Webworks, Inc., located in Salt Lake City, Utah; Investigation of unfair and deceptive trade practices involving work from home opportunities • Viable Marketing Corp., located in Seminole; Unauthorized recurring charges associated with negative option "work at home" internet business opportunity McCollum says consumers should be wary of any company offering employment positions that require little or no education but claim to pay high wages, companies that charge an up-front fee for their services or products, companies that offer "memberships" to internet-based employment opportunities, and any other opportunity that sounds too good to be true.

In addition, the sweep includes 43 criminal actions by the Department of Justice, many involving the substantial assistance of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.The agency also announced partnerships with the online job placement service Monster.com, the search engine Bing and the centralized network of online communities Craigslist to help job seekers recognize job scams so they can avoid being victimized. Monster, Careerbuilder, Bing and Craigslist will display FTC consumer education material to people who are using the companies' Web sites to look for jobs."Federal and state law enforcement officials will not tolerate those who take advantage of consumers in times of economic misfortune," said David C. Vladeck, Director of the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection. "If you falsely advertise that you will connect people with jobs or with opportunities for them to make money working from home, we will shut you down. We will give your assets to the people you scammed, and, when it's appropriate, we'll refer you to criminal authorities for prosecution."To help consumers avoid being conned by employment scams, the FTC has produced a new consumer education video in English and Spanish.Read more: http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2010/02/jobs_scams.html#ixzz0gesTr4l6

I may have found a connection to this. 1-8-10 I applied to a "Front Desk Receptionist" job, posted on craigslist (12-31-09 at 9:17am). It sounded like an OFFICE job. Jan.9th I got a reply from a "UM Plastics describing a different "work from home" job, not an OFFICE job. Then, on 1-11-10 at 11:50am I get a call from #954-250-0112. The scam: YOU get checks from people for items auctioned on the internet, YOU cash the checks, keep 5% commission and send the rest to the scammer. Since YOU type records & keep them in your home & email the scammer summary reports of these transactions, YOU are the "Record Keeper", by the IRS rules and are fully responsible & liable, legally. Nothing can be traced, legally to the scammer. DO NOT cash these checks. An example is given for a John R. Smith transaction. More about this scam is at www.scamwarners.com. Hopethis helps someone avoid a legal battle & messed up credit. Good Luck!
