Caller name: Worldwide Requisitions

I received the following message from an unknown number:

"This message is for *** *** in reference to a complaint that has been filed against you. You have 4 hours to contact us AT (202) 417-2021. You have been named as a respondent and may have to appear in court. The order to show calls contains a restraining order. It is imperative. Could that you or your attorney contact us immediately, failure to do so may result in contacting your employer to verify your employment. To pursue a remedy against your wages. If you wish to stop this action press 9, to speak to a litigator. Or, contact us AT (202) 417-2021."

I called and spoke with a very nice lady who was brand new to her job. She was never rude but also did not have much information. She did tell me the name of the company (Worldwide Requisitions) and the mailing address (PO Box 223, Washington DC, 20015) but said that the company does not allow them to give out the physical address. I explained to her that a physical address is necessary in order to file suit and asked if they possibly have an Agent for Service (commonly used by corporations) and she had no idea.

When answering the phone she identified herself as a "mediator" and I asked her for more information about that role. She explained that she acts as a "mediator" between the debtor and the attorney. I asked if this was an internal job title or if she had received any certification. She said that there was no certification - that this was just the job title used. I asked to speak with one of the attorneys and she said that they spent the morning in court and would be in the office at 2pm.

Because she is so new to the job I think that she is just now starting to realize that her company is, at best, walking a fine line between legitimate collections and outright fraud (at this point I believe that there are a number of FDCPA violations). I suggested to her that she might want to reconsider her employment options due to the company's business practices and she agreed. She was very grateful.

I will be sharing this information with the CFPB (http://www.consumerfinance.gov/) and the FTC (http://www.ftc.gov) as well as the Washington DC BBB (https://dc-easternpa.bbb.org/) and suggest that anybody who receives these calls does the same. The only way to shut down questionable / illegal practices like this is to report them to the agencies who have the procedures to protect us.

Possibly, I rang them up using all 7 lines of our office phone until someone picked up and was civil. They said that a pvt investigation agency service puts out the calls and that one would need to get the name of the individual. When I provided the number that this call came through on, the nice lady (African American) saw nothing. The 202 number is the collections agency. Like others here, I didn't give a name at all, and I too know my accounts and life are in good standing so who knows what the heck was going on.

Caller name: Barbara Simpson

I received a call from this number and was told that I had 4 hrs to call back or they would contact my employer for verification. I immediately called back and was greeted by a Barbara Simpson. She asked me if I'd ever received a payday loan, in return I told her "never" She went on to say that "well I guess someone received one in your name" I asked her if she would give me any and all information that she have on the loan. She asked me to hold and then hung up the phone. I called back at least 3 times and someone answered and at the same time hung up. I called back a 4th time and was greeted by this Ms Simpson person, who in return swore that she had never spoken to me. When I asked her for the name and address of her company she asked that I hold on again and speak to her supervisor. A woman with the same ignorant ghetto-fied voice comes on the phone and says "this is supervisor Angie, the name of the company is IRS and the adress is P.O.Box 223 Washington DC 2001??? Yes I never said a word. Then she hung up (AGAIN) Heck it is Christmas Eve. In my Sweet Brown voice "aint nobody got time for this" They've been caught!!! Merry Christmas to all. Please make sure to always ask questions before you give in to any "UNAVAILABLE" Callers.

Said I had a payday loan this year....when I disputed it, and told them would turn this over to my attorney, got very mad, threatened to come and assault me....told me he knew all about me, and even address he gave was wrong!! Said people in Alabama were ***** dumb**** , asked him what color was my hair and eyes, and he said I know what color they will be when I come and get through with you...told him that I knew my legal rights and he was not to contact me, by phone, letter, or employers again, and if he did I would be taking legal action against him...he refused to give me address as well.

I received the same message about 15 minutes ago. I dealt with this same c**p about a year ago and I went as far as turning it over to the local FBI office because they called me non stop during a work day. The one time I answered, they were very forceful in wanting me to make some payment arrangements on a debt I knew I did not owe. I refused to give them any information. They called and called. Once I had spoken with an FBI fraud agent, I answered them again to let them know that I had reported them and spoken with a LIVE agent. The FBI agent called me back at the end of the day and informed me that they had spoken with someone on the other end a couple of times but by the time they called back a 3rd time, the number was basically dead, no answer, no answering service, no messages, etc. It was done from a cell phone (burner line I'm assuming) so they couldn't track the person down. I was impressed with their attention to the matter, but now I just ignore them.

Since I have never done either of these things and don't have a checking account, this has to be a scam.

Message was left stating I have 4 hours to call or some sort of legal action will be taken against me. I returned the call and the individual got an attitude after I asked the address and hung up on me when I said stop calls and I will seek legal action against them. I called back and asked for the address again and the same person answered, I asked for the address again with the same reaction from the woman that answered the phone.

I just got a call that showed up as an "unknown" on my caller id on my cell phone. When I got the message it said that I had 4 hours to call back about some restraining order or legal action would take place. Then they give you a phone number to call back which was the 202-417-2021, and i searched it, and came across this website. Some one needs to take action against these people because I'm not going to tolerate this harassment if they keep calling me or try to call my place of employment.

Received a voicemail on my cell from 202-417-2021 saying I need to call back within 4 hours or they will call my employer to verify employment and will proceed with legal action to sue/garnish my wages. Came up on my phone as Unknown. This is the 3rd time I've had a call like this in the past 2 weeks. All from different numbers. I have used a payday loan company before in the past, Advance America. I've never had any problems from them. I think somehow information got sold or stolen to this person/company as I've had two friends tell me they've received the same phone call. They are preying on people with financial issues. One lady here fell for it and sent money to pay off what she thought was an old debt. Then they kept calling her and harrassing her for more money. She didn't realize it was a scam. Now she's out over $3000. She's had to change her number, license #, etc. because they have all her information. They are overseas and there's not much her lawyer or attorney general can do.

So BEWARE!! Never send any money without asking the person/company to verify the debt. The company has 30 days to respond w/ verification. Find out what your company's HR policies are for wage garnishment. Most people react for fear of their employer finding out, they go ahead and pay it to spare themselves the embarrassment. That's how they get you! Don't fall for this!!

Automated voice message on my cell yesterday saying if I didn't call back in four hours I would be sued and work contacted to garnish my wages and I would be taken to court.

I called the number back next day asking for some validation and proof of debt to be sent in writing and they said info was previsously sent (not true). They asked for a settlement amount over the phone for approx a third of the amount ($500 of $1500 amount). Only if payment was made would they send an email & written confirmation. Said this was something from a check cashing company (or similar). They refused to send anything in the mail and said they would request a subpoena instead, Then they hung up.

Left me a voicemail saying I had to call back or I was being sued by a bank they they didn't have the exact name for but that it could possibly be for a pay day loan or some other line of credit I took out in 2002. Unable to give me the name or name of the agency to call for verification or the amount of the debt; and when I asked which bank account they supposedly put this money into they said they wouldn't have put it in an account. Right. Its a scam. Dont give them any information and don't waste your time calling them back.
