yesterday i received a call from united nation legal dept. the rep. chris rodgers or rogers said i took out a loan in june 2009. but when i asked him what took so long he just kept rambling. i told him i know nothing about a loan. he said he would have me arrested for fraud and money laudering and they sounded like arabs and very rude and threating. sounded like a scam. i got my call from (760)-582-0306. the address they gave me is 310 mcllister st. san francisco ca. 94102
My plan of attack against scammers like this: CALL CONSTANTLY... Then just talk to them about anything aside from the business portion. "Hows the weather?" "Do you like football?"(John Dawson does, his favorite team is Manchester United) "Wanna grab a beer?" Does it work? YUP! Sure, does... Although it took two hours. My records have now been deleted and they do NOT want to call me again, or have me call them. I had them begging for me to leave them alone.After all that I called back one more time, talked to another guy who essentially told me how the company he works for actually runs it's business. I even was able to get his real name. Definately an Indian name. Nice guy, bad scamming business.
Here are some other numbers associated with this number.650-248-3645323-474-0503 ext. 1040 and 1041Other names usedHudson Law Firm4th Deminsion TechnologiesState Investigation Department. All parties within the office have foreign accents. They are consistently rude and threatend legal action every chance they get.
Hi all! This number did not call me, but I was scammed by another number and they got $400.00 out of me before I realized I was being scammed. This was the number listed on the debit from my account. Of course, when I called this number I got an answering machine that gave me another number. The debit came under 4th Dimension Technologies. When I spoke to the person that continues to harass me, he even named this business, but I forced him to tell me what company he was acting on behalf of. He yelled at me and told me that he had already told me. So I asked him to humor me. He changed the name of the company he had originally told me he was acting on. Little does he know I contacted the first company he said he was working for. Beware this is a SCAM. He is foreign and he claims to be Officeer Mike Johnson, Chief Investigative Officer. He even went as foar as to say that he worked for the State Investigation Department
July 29,2009I received numerous calls from this number threating me with a law suit claiming that I had co-signed on a loan for my granddaughter(which was a lie.)He said that I would have a warrant for my arrest in twenty-four hours. I said send it.When I told them to send me information to give to my attorney;he said "we can settle this without you paying thousands of dollars." I knew then that it was a scam, because if it was legitimate he would not have cared if I got my attorney.
I've gotten calls from this number at least twice a day for the last 3 weeks, I've talked to them once, after which i called my local police, got an incident case against them for telephone harassment and called asking them to STOP calling me... since then I've still gotten at least two calls a day. they told me to call back to a different number than they called from and it's a message machine. it's 100% a scam and they must be getting some people to pay or they wouldn't be continuing. it's frustrating but I'm relieved to know there is no real threat towards me legally.
I keep getting these from this number say that I owe money for some loan. The person has a very thick accent they told me that I owe money and if I do not pay I was going to jail and they are going to my son away from and that they would make my life a living hell. I am giving them a dime it's a scam because I do owe anyone anything.
CALLER CLAIMED TO BE FROM SOME INTERNATIONAL FEDERAL SOMETHING OR ANOTHER AND FEDERAL RECORDING OF THE CALL BLAH BLAH BLAH... SCAMMERS CALL BACK# 866-994-7554. I TOLD HIM TO GO BACK TO INDIA AND POUND SAND
I have received several phone calls from this number. Sometimes 6 or 7 in 20 minutes! they claim that they are with the Fraud and Investigations department and that I have a paid loan out that I never paid back. They have "Indian" accents and threaten that if I do not pay them NOW...I will be arrested. When I started to ask what company it was for and how much was the loan ( I knew it was a scam because I do not have any outstanding payday loans) He told me he has my IP address, and that there is an ongoing investigation of my address and myself, and only GOD could help me now.
I went home and googled the phone #, and found PAGES of complaints on these scammers. They will call all hours of the day and leave several voice mails. They also will scream and curse at you if you start to ask them questions. IT IS A SCAM
201-234-4184 has been calling me for months asking for Erica Hill. They believe that I am Erica Hill, which I am not. I don't even know anyone by that name. I had them go on yahoo and type in my phone number and read the name that came up, which was Samantha Nadj (my name). I told them if they did not believe that, to call my local sheriff's department and send a deputy to my house, at which time I would show the deputy my driver's license so he could confirm my identity. The man, Craig Martin, still did not believe me and asked if he could "call me sometime" and then made sexual inuendos. I am very tired of this. I would like for it to stop. This is harassment.

I just received another phone call from Peter Thompson at this number. He told me I had taken a payday loan and refused to pay back. They have filed a lawsuit against me and my ss# has been put on hold. If do not contact them they will take me to court and have me arrested. when I asked for documentation they refused and stated that the payday loan company does not send out paperwork. I do not know who these people and I would like them to stop calling me.
Stated I had taken a payday loan out and never paid it back. Threanted to arrest me and take me to call to face possible jail time.
I got a call from them yesterday (all with Indian accents) and today stating I had a payday loan out and never paid and they were taking me to court and going to get arrested on my job and everything. When I started asking questions about the issue he staring yelling an screaming cursing me out and hung up. I called thenumber back and he said I needed to give him $500 dollars to stop the court proceedings then in 2 weeks give them another $500 and my debt would be taken care of. They requested I send them bank statements and everything but could never tell me anything about what the payday loan is or anything when ever you would ask a question he get loud and starts getting aggravated.
http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-714-333-2981This is just another one of hundreds (and perhaps even thousands) of numbers these overseas payday loan debt collection scammers are calling from:http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-904-425-9141:It's a scam, and all their threats are false and illegal. The bottom line is, these are criminals trying to steal consumers' money.Here are a few news reports and government advisories warning consumers about this scam:ABC News: http://abcnews.go.com/Business/story?id=5621205&page=1West Virginia Attorney General: http://www.wvago.gov/internetloanscam.cfmWTAE TV4, Pittsburgh: http://www.thepittsburghchannel.com/call4action/17285785/detail.htmlFlorida Commissioner of Consumer Services: http://www.800helpfla.com/newsletter/2008/092008.htmlThis 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 gobbylgook 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, Christian Nicholas & Associates, US Federal Bank, Sonic Bank, Hopkins Law Office, CashNet, 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.)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 (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. Cargo Motors,C.G. Road Navrangpura,Ahmedabad - 9. (Guj.) INDIA.E-Mail: [email protected]: www.intellisourze.comA check on the domain name "intellisourze.com" shows that the website and name registration was created on May 8, just one month *after* the Crosby scams were shut down in Florida:Domain Name: INTELLISOURZE.COMRegistrant: Pragra Infratech Pvt.

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.naag.org5) 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/1-336-553-3965http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-888-909-6789http://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/1-310-909-8245http://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/1-858-244-0444...and, many, MANY more.
Got a call today from a man with (indian accent) said I co signed for a loan and they were coming after me. I told them that I had no loans, and NEVER was stupid enough to co sign for anyone. They cussed me and told me get ready for the legal battle. I told them to bring it on!
I got a call the other day saying the same thing that I had a loan that I owed for. Which I don't I have also had payday loan's and I have paid them all. This guy has an (Indian accents) also. He said tht if I didn't pay I would be arrested on my job. So I got smart an started asking question he had my SSN also. So I ask what the name of this loan company I have the loan with. He couldn't give me that information.When did I get the loan he couldn't give me that information. When did it post my account he didn't have that information either. I called my back just to make sure there is no loan coming thru my account. This company is a scam. I wouldn't even take there calls anymore. let them take me to court that's what I want. They said I took the loan out in May 2008 and i used my BB&T account lol. I didn't open my BB&T account until Sept 2008 when I moved. If this money was givien to me there would have been a money trail to my account which there is not.
The people from this number left threatening voicemails (Indian accents) on my home phone and work phone stating I had 2 business days or they would be taking legal action against me. Somehow they had my SSN! They left another number to contact Officer David Banner at 866-994-7554, ext 1011. I admit I had online payday loans in the past. I have paid them all in full over 6 months ago. No all of a sudden I get these threatening phone calls. I intend to report them to my state's AG and the FTC. I beleieve they are scam artist.
called me this evening and said he was an officer with the attorney generals office. I told him to send me something in writting. He told me there wasn't time, because his officer was coming in the morning to arrest me. I told him to send him now as I wasn't going anywhere.
I just received a call from this number and spoke with a "Blake" who told me he was calling from the FSM group as I owed $7024.31 in medical bills. When I asked for additional information he hung up on me. I called back the number and it asked me to enter an extension, which I did not know. I pressed one on impulse and "Blake" answered and in a hurried tone told me that this $7024.31 that I supposedly owe was money that I borrowed from the internet. I asked him to send me some documentation about this loan and he continued to ramble off some information I did not understand, with the last statement being that he is going to start a full court proceeding against me. I told him to go ahead (not in those nice words) and hung up my phone.
It is a scam. Look at the Federal Trade Commission's website and look up the debt collectors policies. If you notice, they are not allowed to threaten you with ANYTHING!!, which they do. They are supposed to provide you with a written notification of the debt within 5 business days upon first contact, which they do not. With that being said, contact the FTC and file a complaint. Hopefully they will get enough that they can stop this. And if you really want to screw with them, just call them non-stop. They get aggravated and just hang up on them. screw with them. I think it helped me to get them to stop calling me.
I got this call yesterday saying that they had some case against me and they were about to download a file to the court and the police was the there way to my house to arrest me and take my son away if I did not pay them 1700 dollars I did not send them any thing.
They will not leave me alone... How do I stop this?
These scumbags are calling my business and leaving threatening phone calls for a person who doesn't work here. I am assuming my business phone # must have previously been her phone #. They claim to be in New York City, NY, but the 201 area code tells me the call originated from New Jersey (or a NJ # was used to route the call).Where do I file a complaint - NY, NJ or both?They also left the phone # 877-863-1491 x. 1006 as a callback #.
I got a call from this this number today. They told me I signed up for a loan over the internet, They got my ip address and they are the United Nation Legal Department. I talked to a Blake Williams Chef Investigator. I called the United Nations and they gave me a different number than this one. I was told the loan came form a company called FSM Group. I also investigated and found out the number I got is called OSL Markiting. I beleave that this is a scam.
Rydell is a bastard he's a big scammer....
