727-231-1227 - Did this number call you? If yes, leave your comment/complaint below.
Today 11/18/2011 at 10:42am I received a call from a blocked number on my personal phone. The woman on the line told me that she is from Bureau of Seizures and Injunctions and that somebody filing legal action against me. I asked her for the phone where I can call her back. She provided me with the phone number 727-231-1227 and case number. I called the number 727-231-1227 and received following recorded message: "You reached Bureau of Seizures and Injunctions: if you are calling in regards to witness statements or depositions press 1, If you are calling regarding GPS tracking or asset location press 2, if you are looking to settle a matter in leu of court action pess 3, if you know you party extension press 4." I pressed 1 and was forwarded to an operator. She asked me for the case#, I told her the number. She asked me for the last name, I told her that she must have it in her file. When I asked her for her name she hung up. Called again and pressed 3., got another operator, asked for her name, she said Gery Smiles. I gave here case #. She gave me my old home address information, I asked her where did she get this info from. She was unable to explain and hung up. Called again and pressed 4. No matter what button I press after that I was getting a message: "I am sorry that is not a valid extension." The whole thing sounded very fake. I did internet search on the number and came across the following site: http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-727-231-1227. Apparently this looks like a scam and there are other people who become victims of them. I contacted FTC and filed claim with them, they confirmed that this is a payday scam. Please, investigate.
Today 11/25/11 I have received a call on my cell phone stating they were from Bureau of Seizure and Investigation and a claim was being filed against me. I had 24 hours to respond. I tried to call the number 727-231-1227 yet could never get through to a person. I ams suppose to leave my information for them to call me back. I have never been to Florida and NEVER give out my cell phone number. I always use my home phone. I believe this is a scam since to many things do not add up.
Same people call for our daughter, but now using a different "investigator" on a court matter against her. They are in St. Petersburg, FLA, but can file elsewhere. I was given a case # and the same tele# as everyone else. If this stems from a payday loan she got, it was already taken care of years ago. We would have received calls directly from them, not a con artist in Florida. I do not take calls from Florida for that very reason. I am no longer taking calls from private name/number. If they do not want me to know who's calling, I am not going to answer the calls.
These people called my parents home and spoke with my son. Told him that they were from seizures and injunctions and that I was involved with a legal matter against me. I called the number with the little code and was forwarded to a message that said everyone was busy. I googled the number and voila! Here I am. Sounds like a load. They contacted me a few months ago too. I argued with some lady who wanted me to identify myself and I refused. I wanted this "firm" to identify themselves first to check validity and she hung up on me.
I have been contacted by several of the same type of scams before, so for that reason I don't answer restricted numbers. I got the same message as everyone else, this was involving a legal matter of a claim filed against me, was given Case #WST2275 and the phone number of 727-231-1227 to call back. I won't even call, because I googled the number and it brought me here.
I also go this call today the woman I spoke with told me her name was Savannah Potts, she gave me a claim # and the number to return the call to. She said I had 24-48 hours to respond or a restraining order could be filed against me. I asked her what type of restraining order and she said "I don't know" then some one in the background told her to say that she didn't know because there are do many different types and or course that's what she told me. I know in my gut that this is a scam!!
This place is a scam. Do not give them ur credit card over the phone. They have bought old debts from the courts and r trying to collect on those debts. Most if not all if them have already been charged off. These unsuspecting customers do not even owe these debts. ?
got this call this morning looking for my hudband,sd her name was savannah gave me a claim number she said he had 24 hours to respond or a restaining order could be filed and to contact our attorney there were from bureau of seizures would not tell me anymore well i sd if this is about a debt we filled bankrupucty and has been discharged the phone went dead
This place is such a scam. Do not give them no info. They will rob u blind. These poor people getting sucked into this scam. They have bought old debts from the courts. Call you tell you that you have a case/affidavit # and that you are being sued. They tell you that you have two options. 1 to go to court. 2 to settle out of court. here's how that works. They put you on hold, never talk to a "client". They add $500. to the total. divide that in half then come back on the phone and tell you that the client said that they will settle for half the amount u came up with. they want $ 200 down and then you can make payments. Do not get sucked into it. The owner has done this in Ohio and New York.
Frist this company should look up what Restraining Order means. LMFAO! Restraining Order: The term is most commonly used in reference to domestic violence, harassment, stalking or sexual assault. In the United States, each state has some form of domestic violence restraining order law, and many states also have specific restraining order laws for stalking and sexual assault. Restraining and personal protection order laws vary from one jurisdiction to another but all establish who can file for an order, what protection or relief a person can get from such an order, and how the order will be enforced. When the abuser does something that the court has ordered him or her not to do, or refuses to do something the court has ordered him or her to do, that is a violation of the order. The victim can ask the police or the court, or both, depending on the violation, to enforce the order. Here are a few Links for anyone who wants to make a complaint. http://ag.ca.gov/contact/complaint_form.php?cmplt=CL http://www.sos.ca.gov/vcfcf/fraud-resources.htm http://www.dos.state.fl.us/office/inspector-general/file-complaint.cfm http://dlis.dos.state.fl.us/fgils/buscmplaint.html
This company is trying to find out information about me. I do not know what they want, but it sounded like a scam obviously I was right. The moment I googled the Bureau of Seisures and Injunctions. This report came out. So who ever it is you need to stop them.

I WISH THEY WILL STOP CALLING ME WITH THIS SCAM....
An unknown number came up on my cell. As with the others here, I do not answer unknown numbers. A woman stated a complaint had been filed against me and that I had 24-48 hrs for myself or my attorney to call the 727-231-1227 and gave me a file number. She said she was with the bureau of seizures and something about a restraining order.. c'mon now!! A restraining order??? That's for someone you've done harm to or afraid you'll do harm to them. Anything coming from a court is always mailed to you first. bogus bogus bogus!!!!
I received a call today stating I was going to be taken to court if I did not respond. I called, they had all my old info with part of my social security number! Then they gave me little information regarding an old account and refused to tell me more. The name of the orginal business, the amount, nothing! They told me the credit card company it was through, when it was initiated and then said it was outstanding. I called the credit card company, which is a large one, with whom looked up my history and confirmed nothing was outstanding. I called back this company and asked for a manager who refused once again to tell me more and hung up on me. I checked my credit report, to make sure no one stole my information, and nope nothing negative I called and registered a complaint with the FCC and am calling my attorney general. I called them back advising them that I found out I have nothing outstanding and I have filed complants. This has been over 2 hours of my life wasted. Now I'm concerned they will steal my identity!
This person called my 91 year old mother and nearly gave her a heart attack. Said that someone filed a restraining order against me. I told my mother to calm down after I googled number. Called it several times and neve got thru to a live human. Filed a complaint with the FTC. Later that day, someone else called my older brother. Have no idea how their numbers were obtained.
I received a voicemail from an unknown number. He "informed" me that I was being pursued legally, that a restraining order was also involved, and that I was required to appear in court. He said I had 24 hours to respond. Now this is what I see wrong with this. 1. Any restraining orders would be presented to me in person via an officer of the court, basically, I would have been served in person with legal papers. 2. Any "requirements to appear" would also be presented in person by an assigned officer of the courts, again, served papers. 3. If this is a method of collecting money, why do they need a restraining order? My Conclusion: Until an assigned officer of the court comes up to my doorstep or brings me papers at work, I give zero credit to these con artists. When I call the number and ask them these questions such as "if I am being threatened with a restraining order, why is an officer not at my doorstep with the papers" and they hang up on me, this screams to me SCAM!! I would treat these guys as hostile scammers, and identity thieves. Do not listen to these guys, do not give them any credit or trust, and do not give them any information.
I would not even respond to these guys whatsoever. If they do steal your identity, or if something derogatory is done against your name, you know where it came from. Sounds like they are going off of old bankruptcy records, and bankruptcy records are public if I recall. You could do what I do, tell them that the state of Montana makes it illegal to attempt to collect debts that have been discharged in a bankruptcy court. As for the restraining order, HA! Don't believe it until an appointed officer comes up to your door with papers in hand!
