"united jugement and appeals" is just another silly debt collection agency. They try to sound all fancy and legit. You can put lipstick on a pig but - you know the rest!

Yes i also received a call from this number,The idiot on the other end told my wife that he was an Agent from a company called,
"United Judgement Appeals"
He said his name was Steve Foster and He was going to Arrest me,

I guess he doesn't realize pretending to be a Government Agent is
A Crime!!

In response to:

Received a call from this number at my workplace; it was a guy (African American) who answered me by saying 'Hey Baby hows it going?' to which he asked if I could read him the number off the copier and when I told him I couldn't do it he started verbally and sexually assaulting me over the phone. Copier toner scammer who lives alone in his parents basement no doubt.

Unbelievable! How is it that the government does nothing about this type of telephone fraud but works hard to pass a law for internet censorship and major loss of our "habitual internet rights" ?

Under the proposed E-PIRACY ACT, amateur karaoke singing would be infringing copy rights an practically all of youtube music content would be off limit unless its paid for by viewers..

WTF is this??

A person calling themselves Brian called my mom and told her that she was able to get a grant from the government for the amount of 4000.00 , but she had to pay 500.00 in a pre paid card to get the money released to her. Every time after that they called asking for more money. They kept telling her it was on hold at the New York Treasury bank all they needed was money to get it released. This is a BIG SCAM. Run if they call you. They will harass you and have different people call sounding very reliable and legit ament. JUST HANG UP.

So far I have gotten two calls from this guy with an Indian accent. He claims to be from "Windows Server" and says that my computer is sending a lot of data to their server and that means I have a virus. On the first call I questioned him on how Microsoft would have gotten my cell phone number and he eventually hung up. On the second call I played along and let them think I was going to let them help me fix my computer. He put me on hold and then patched me into a woman with an Indian accent claiming to be a Microsoft certified genius who would help me. When I wouldn't allow her access to my computer she hung up. I assume they are trying to remotely connect to computers to get personal data and bank account information. People like this should not be allowed to exist on this planet.

My daughter called me on a Sunday night and asked me, dad are you in some kind of legal trouble? I told her no why? She then we played a message from a lady named Sherry that stated she was a special agent and that I had 48 hours to contact an attorney or they will be filing a restraining order. The first thing, any legitimate company specifically the federal government or a state agency is not going to have one of their employees call you on a weekend especially at night regarding a legal issue. You must receive something in writing usually at the post office and it's usually certified mail. Well, low and behold I go on the Internet and I put in this phone number and sure enough, it's a scam. This frustrates me, because shouldn't there be a law against harassing people and threatening them with legal action when they have no idea of anything is happening?

A Steve Foster left a message saying he was a private investigator with Judgement and Appeals and a reastraing order was being held against me and an affadavit. filed I needed to call within 24-48 hours or a suit would be filed I called back and they said I owed money to payday loans and more in the sum of 2000.00 He would not give me their phone number or address I have never taken a payday loan out with this company and couldnt even locate them on line.When I told them this he said I could take this up with the judge I called back later for their address and they told me I owed 500.00and if I paid today the judgement would be stopped. I called the attorney generals office she said they were a scam and couldnt be traced. These people sounded so legit except for the restraining order phrase They Even had automated messages. They had even called my job and gave out this info which I thought illegal for a debt collector. Cant anything be done ? This is extortion and their scare tactics are convincing.They had all my information about me which is scarey. These are not Indian scammers.

I was told the exact same thing. That I owed money for a loan I took out. I've never, ever had any kind of payday loan. But they are telling me that they have sent & will send another police out to my hous to serve me papers. I called my bank just to be sure. They are getting smarter, it's no longer a Indian man. This time it sounded like a black man. This is so annoying...

Mr. Foster called my job and asked to speak to my Supervisor. He continue to state that he was a private investigator and what was the policy on serving Ms. Reed with papers. He explained that charges had been pressed against me. I knew this was a scam, so I told him, if this was a personal matter, she is to be served at her place of residence. He replied that he did not have my address. Then I stated that she is no longer employed here. He replied I guess there is no reason for the call and hung up.

Caller type: Debt Collector

A guy named Steve Foster called yesterday and left a message on my husband's cell phone for me while he was at work. Luckily, he saved the message for me (still can't figure out how he got his cell phone number, but not mine). This guy said almost the same exact, threatening things as he did to Terry. I KNOW I don't owe any old outstanding debts, but went straight to my bank this morning to ask them if this is for real. THEY told me it was a scam and that legally, if someone does happen to have an old debt that was never paid, the company must notify you via U.S. mail and provide all pertinent information such as the where/when/why and how you can correct it. No legitimate debt collecting service should be calling and harassing anyone over the phone, let alone pose as a "Government Agent". These people are POS's and it is a SCAM!
