caller stated she is a director with western asset management and is called regarding a case# and that I need to call immediately to settle the case. this is a sham as there is no "case". I have been getting these kinds of calls for over a year, the company name and phn number changes and the scenario changes, but basically they threaten you with legal action, or arrest, or wage garnishement if you don't call and make arrangements to pay.
they called me looking for my husband.. when I explain that what they are NOT legal to much information left on a voicemail also when I gave them my bar number in NC he began to be very rude. if you get a call from this number PLEASE get a physical address and every name of the person you are talking to. What state are they in or what state do the hold business tax ID in... then call Bernhardt & Strawser lawyers in NC 5821 Fairview Rd... they will handle your case. Good luck

She said she had a claim against me filed by a Cynthia Anderson. She gave the case # and said to call 855-326-5717 to solve the matter immediately. After I heard the call on my answering machine, I called back the phone # and a black guy answered and I asked for Melissa Sanford and he ho hummed for a few seconds and said she wasn't here. Then he said did she give you a case # and I said yes, but I didn't write it down. He says Is this the # she called you at and I said yes. He said I'll send her an e-mail. I said I don't know what's going on and I think she has the wrong #. Then I asked him what kind of business this was and he said something about we settle legal claims that have been filed. Now I feel so much better knowing these are scammers!!!!!!!!!!
This is to add to my previous posting above. I *69 on my phone and got the # from which so called Melissa was calling, then looked it up on the internet. 402-860-7243. It is her land line from Norfolk,Ne. I don't want to pay the money to find out her name, but I think everyone should call her about 3 a.m. and threaten her!! HA HA HA!!! Pay backs a b***h!!!!!!!!!!!
Keeps calling my cellphone for a person that isn't me about some kinda case. Called 855-326-5717 & they've stated they've removed my number(once again). Still getting calls as of today. Suppose to remove again. We shall see. No cases in my life so QUIT CALLING!!!
I received a call for my brother, who does not even live in the same state as me and has never been reachable at my number. The message sounded like a computer voice and was as follows:
"My name is Melissa Stanford. I am the director of the claims processing department at Western Portfolio Management. I am attempting to serve notice on record to [name redacted] in regards to case file ####### naming you as a person of interest. This is your official notification of this process. If you wish to voluntarily resolve this matter, please contact us at 855-326-5717. Thank you for your attention to this matter."
When I called the number, a man answered. I asked for Melissa Stanford and he asked if this was regarding my brother. I said he does not live at this number. The caller asked for his phone number or his mother's phone number. I asked why he was asking for the mother's phone number and he started to get really rude. "Why can't you just give me the number?!" I said "This sounds really shady, can I get a good callback number for her to reach you at or is the number I called a good number?" and he started yelling at me saying "MY NAME IS JOHN HARDY AND I AM AN OFFICER OF THE ANCHORAGE COMMUNITY COURT! It would be in your brother's best interest if I speak with his mother. What harm will it do to just give me her number?!"
My brother is an adult, and this man wants to go tattling to his mommy? I googled John Hardy Anchorage Community Court and several variations and came up with no results.
I received a call from this woman on a loan that they said I had a loan from a company that I never heard of for 2002 -2008. I informed them that I have no knowledge of any loan. Plus I filed bankruptcy in 2007 so that it should have been written off. Also I am on SS Disability and would not be able to do any type of settlement.
I live in Washington state, and as with all of you the same woman, Melissa Sanford called and stated there was some case naming me a 'person of interest' and that I should call immediately to 'voluntarily' resolve the matter. It was definitely a recording...it appears that this could only be a scam considering one person 'Melissa Sanford' is calling all of their potential victims to resolve these "matters" yet nobody who calls back can seem to get a hold of this person! I never called back, but I just may in order to get more info about these people!
I am adding to my previous comment by saying that I also looked up "western portfolio management" the
Firm that Melissa Sanford claims to be the director of and found that they are a financial management company for individuals with fixed incomes who are trying to save for retirement. They are in no way a collection agency or agent of any court or legal system! THESE ARE SCAM ARTISTS! REPORT THEM!
The number 1 (760)314-6289 called and left me a voicemail also by the name of Melissa Stafford said she is the director of the claims processing department at Western Portfolio Management that she was attempting to serve me a notice in regards to a case file number naming me the person of interest that it was my official notification of this matter....Honestly I got scared I do have outstanding debt so I called back to see what was going on to who they bought my account from first a lady with a heavy accent answered the phone she told me that a legal case was pending against me that I owed $355.87 to Check into Cash and I could settle out of court if I paid the amount when I asked her for a second to check my online bank account to see if I had the funds available someone else came on the line he identified himself as Frank White said he was the director of operations he apologized for I not being notified that i was being transffered then I told him I only had $293 available and he took it then said i could pay the remaining in two weeks when i asked for a reciept he said it would be emailed and I would also recieve a copy in the mail. An hour later I still hadnt recieved my email so I called back and asked to speak to Mr. White when he came on the line I notified him I was waiting for my reciept and he started apologizing and said that hes in a desperate need for a secratary that theyre training a new girl and she didnt send it to me but that he would stand behind her to make sure that she sent it to me and I should have it within 15 min and sure enough I recieved a reciept and I checked my online banking and I was charged that amount by Prime Resolution which they had mention could happen but then they called my mom same name Melissa Stafford and told her that I owed money and she needed to have me call them back asap but I had already made a payment and set up a payment plan for the remaining!! and when I googled Western Portfolio it gives me a disconnected phone number! I dont know what to do I wish I had read these comments before giving them any money
Thank you all so much for posting this. I got the same voice message as you are all reporting. I was victim of identity theft last year and have been trying to clear up the 13 pay day loans that were taken out in my name and social. Some of the companies were legitimate but some all fraudulent and go by many different names; these companies will not follow Fair Debt Collection Practices but try to intimidate you and harass you until you give in and pay. Don't give them ANY personal information or acknowledge that any information they have about you is correct or incorrect. I never know which calls are related to my identity theft and which are random. I think this one must be random, so I won't call back and try to fight with them. My only words of advice: if you're getting these calls and you haven't checked your credit report lately, do it now! Many of the "lenders" involved in identity theft don't open accounts on your credit reports, but they will inquire about your report so if you seen inquiries you didn't authorize definitely look into it. Thanks again. Thank goodness for the world wide web :)
