Same as above. They called me, and my mother's phone too today. I work at a law office, considering doing more research and filing a lawsuit based on violation of the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act. This is totally illegal.

I have just received the same phone call from 704-879-2693 and actually talked to them, I was asked if I had been served a subpoena and I said no what is this about and was asked to hold . When I told them I could not hold what was this about she called me an idiot and said good luck in court. I called back and the same person answered and I told her not to hang up on me again and she asked my name and when I told her she said we will just send the subpoena to your place of employment and hung up again. Well sorry to burst her bubble but I have not even been in the united states since 2010.. It has to be a scam because most legit collections agency's want to talk to you to get all the info they can so they can get their money...Hope they get caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law

I had virtually the same message as everyone else on this page, including the bit about a restraining order. It took me about 10 seconds to smell a rat. Court cases normally (I would think ALWAYS) have paperwork involved, especially that which gets delivered either by the post office, special courier, or hand-delivered. Not from some clandestine cell phone number that merely comes up as Lowell, NC.

He threatened me over the phone when I kept laughing at him - I turned the tables and let him know he couldn't get the best of me or anyone in my household. He ended up hanging up on me in frustration.

I, too received a call from this number telling me "This is the civil investigations unit. We are contacting you pursuant to a claim being filed against you...." blah, blah blah. After reading other's comments on these calls, I am convinced this is in regards to a call I got about a year ago in which I was informed that there was an unpaid balance on a Visa that I needed to pay. It sounded fishy, especially since I haven't had a Visa card for years. I told them they must send me the DOCUMENTATION showing purchases, etc. I never heard back from them and never received any documentation of any kind. Considering all of the problems we all share today including the economy, job loss, etc., I find it very insulting to have to bother with this sort of c**p.

The phone number is a private line out of Lowell N.C. They (the scammers) purchased the number through a company called Level 3 Communications out of Colorado. Their web info is : http://www.level3.com/en/contact-us/. If you want I suggest you contact this company and ask them to give up the name of the scammer. I am sure enough complaints to this company will generate some result.

You have been named a respondent to a court action and must appear. You or your attorney will have 24-48 hours to respond and that I had a card from HSBC that was closed in 2009 and had a balance of ~$1800." I never a credit card from this bank and nothing is on my credit report. I found it especially sketchy when they didn't know the state I live in. The man I talked to had a quick response to that and said that must be why I have never heard from this agency before. I would think if this were a legit issue then they would know where I lived and I would have heard about getting served long before this. Don't fall victim to this scam. Hang up on them and call your bank and make sure they can't get any of your information.

I've received two calls from this number. They did not leave a message for the second call. The automated wording is almost the same as written by other posters above. However, I can say that the recording says, "...a complaint being filed against you pursuant...where you have been named as a respondent." If this were a legitimate call, they would have cited the state law code section that the case was being filed under. Additionally, as far as I know, they cannot inform you of a legal proceeding via telephone.

I really cannot say if this is a scam or not because I did have some financial problems back in 2005. That being said, the statute of limitation for written and open contracts would have long since passed. Please, know your rights. Understand what you should and should not accept with regard to collection agencies. However, if they are calling threatening legal action, when they are aware that they are barred from legal recourse because of the statute of limitation, that is illegal according to the FCC and they should be reported. I am going to report this number and the other Florida number [561-402-7437] that has called me recently.
