Called with personal information, stating they were going to bring criminal charges against me for fraud/theft for some alleged internet loan I did not make 10 years ago...but they would stop if I paid the reduced amount today.
866-258-2480 ( Mandatory Arbitration Company ) Had the last 4 numbers of my Soc# and said that there will be a freeze of my Bank account funds because of fraud if I did not call back in 48 hours. Very rude people looking for information using threats.
I saw on a google search that there were other people getting these phone calls. I would like to see these scum of the earth so called attorneys with false business fronts scaring people with their low life tactics be stopped and punished. They give a bad name to all attorneys and should be disbarred.
866-258-2480 Called and stated that they had done a criminal background check on me and that I had gotten loan and "made Fraud" because I did not pay the "payday loan" back and that they are going to put me in jail if I do not come to court, they have last four of my social security, address and gave me a confirmation number, and they are make a recording of what they are telling me. Stated I could pay a reduce amount today because "she will not let them take more money that it is worth from me" all while she is chewing gum and or eating in my ear. I am so tired of these calls. WHY are they allowed to do this to people.
First called my South Carolina cell number stating they were calling about a background check and arbitration on a case #. I called back from my office phone in Florida and not long after that someone calling from a cell number in Miami called stating they were with Broward Sheriff using the same case number as stated from South Carolina. What is this, a scam of some sort?
told me if i did not pay today or go make a deposit at bank of america they would serve me and summon me to court on pay day loan taken out in 2006, 8 years ago. that i did not take out and its not even on my credit file. i filed a police, ftcc and att gen report and was told it was a scam by all 3 not to listen to them bc they cannot do anything like serve me with out something in writing mailed to me saying i first owe it
866-258-2480 Received a call today from these people who had the last 4 digits of my husbands SS# and told me that he had a payday loan and if we didn't pay $3684 on a load we supposedly took out for $500 in 48 hours he would have to go to court pay large fines and lawyer fees. I asked them the name of the payday loan place and they said Cash Advance Payday Loan and of course they told me they could not give me the phone number so I could call them direct to find out what this was about because we didn't have any payday loan through this place. Then she said we could do a settlement today of $300 today only by debit/credit card or I could make monthly payment in the amount of $105.95 for 5 months for a total of $560 but if you add 5 payments of 105.95 that actually equals $529.75. I told them I would call them back and then I Googled the phone number and found all these post. I am so glad I didn't give them any bank information. Please do not fall for this! It's very scary the way the talk to you and I wish people would find real jobs and stop trying to take money from people who have real jobs for a living!
Its a 100% scam. Pay them nothing and report them to the FCC, FBI and by all means, your local police. I had this happen a few months ago from a verizon "Pay month to month" cell phone. I filed a report with Verizon, called the police in California where the area code was listed and low and behold, he went away. Hopefully to jail.
I received a message from walter brice or brace, mandatory arbitration. He said i took a loan in 2006. Didnt pay it was on the court. What can we do to stop it. Unfortunately I fell for the scam and gave him my information. I did have payday loans in 2006. Not under the name they gave. Something needs to be done. They scary you and if you dont know, what do you do.
Received call from a local number 314-666-7221 and toll free numbers 866-258-2480 and 2482. Company called Manatory Arbitration which I could find no listing for them. Returned call and spoke to a so called Investigator J. Mills. Said I had a PDL with fastestpaydayloan.com from 2006 which was in default. Had bits and pieces of my information but not complete and could not give me any specifics except I had 48 hours to comply. I never had a loan with any PDL. Then as I asked more questions the timeframe went to 24 hours before a warrant would be filed for me with my local police department and place a lien on my vehicle.
This is obviously a scam and I had had my checking account and debit card compromised recently so this may be tied to it. I will report to all the necessary authorities asap.
This person called one of my active bankruptcy clients and indicated that he had to pay them a bill and when we called one our clients behalf and told them they could not contact the client because he was active bankrupt they said "since you seem to think you know everything why are you calling here? I have something for you to listen to and then hung up the phone". I called back to try to get a mailing address and they said "we don't have a mailing address but you need to have your client call us we will not speak to someone who says they represent the client." We have advised our client to file a complaint with the attorney generals office.
Threatened to file criminal charges against me for several returned checks. I told him I don't have any outstanding bounced checks! Asked if he was from some kind of collection agenct he said no and we will put this payday loan collection on hold for 48 hours so you can pay it.
s***w them!!! They don't have the authority to do so!
I got a call yesterday from this number stated I had 48 hours to call back or they will fil e with my local county.... When I called back they hung up the first time because I refused to give my home telephone number, so I call right back.... They did have personal information about me such as my address, I was told it was from a collection company filed back in 2005. Thats when I knew 100 percent this was a scam. First of all there is a statue of limitations of 3 years, second a collection agency is federally required to state they are calling about collecetion of debt and any info received will be used. They also told me if I did not pay they would file charges and I would be arrested on fraud within 24 hours.... I don't understatand how these people get by with threats and harrasment, that is against the law..... can the fbi or someone not stop these people?
I received a call from 712-202-2191 on my cell phone. I did not answer as I didn't recognize the number. The voice mail that was left stated, "This is Walter Brice with Mandatory Arbitration. I'm calling about an outstanding check returned by your bank. Please call 1-888-743-9314 within 48 hours." John Spencer from Mandatory Arbitration called my parents house 2 months ago for me. When I finally reached someone at the same 888 #, they told me I had an outstanding payday loan as well. And mine was also from 2006, but mine was from Check 'N' Go. The best part was, the loan was taken out in Illinois, I haven't lived in Illinois since 2005. After I told the guy that I didn't take out a loan and refused to make payment arrangements, he told me they would see me in court. I said I would be happy to see him in court. He told me that I was going to be served with papers. Well, I still haven't been served, my accounts haven't been frozen and I'm not writing this from jail. It is a major scam, and they are trying to take advantage of people. DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY MONEY!
Called my parents house and asked for me by my maiden name. Left vm that I needed to call them asap or legal action would be taken for a returned check on a payday loan from 2005. This is the 4th set of scammers to do this. First, the loan was paid and I have the receipts. Second, these companies keep selling your info to others and all have the same gimic. I finally got an attorney invloved because I was afraid the first time and paid them. When he told me it was fraud and unfortunatly nothing can really be done. Over it.
I had two messages at my parents house, one from 866-258-2480 and one from 410-609-4750 asking for me by by maiden name. They left a VM stating I had a returned check and I needed to call asap. I havent had a returned check in 8 yrs but I had fallen victim to a scam similar to this last year. Person called and said they had a warrent out for my arrest due to an unpaid payday day. I was scared and paid them over $1000. Unfortunately, this happened again three more times from different "Lawyers" for this same payday company Advanced America. I contacted an attorney friend and he stated my name was in a "pool" and I need to advise them that they are in violation of the Fair Debt Collection Act and if they do not cease to desist collecting, I would take action. This is crazy and seems like it is illegal for these scam artist to do this!
Got a call from 866-258-2480 but it showed as a local number.
Please DO NOT give these people ANY money OR ANY INFORMATION.
THIS IS A SCAM
or google "payday loan scam"
They are breaking NUMEROUS rules set in place for "bill collectors"
- No robo calls allowed
- a bill collector can not threaten you with arrest
- they can not threaten you with fake legal action
- they MUST give their real name and company
- they MUST mail you written verification of the debt if you ask for them to do so.
Please file a complaint with the FCC and who ever else you can. These are scams. Period. Nothing that they do is ANYWHERE CLOSE to legal or enforceable.
recorded message stating I owed my bank for bad checks. Threatened criminal action if I didn't call back within 48 hours. I called them back and they were closed. This was their second call. First call was a month ago, the call back number was bogus and no longer in service.
I left a nasty message with them today about fraudulent claims. I see that this is some sort of scam.
