I too received a recorded message from the agency associated with this number. The recording stated:" I civil action had been filed naming me as respondent and I had 24/48 hours in which to respond which I gladly did.
At which time/ both times I informed them that I would be more than happy to file a federal action pursuant to The Federal Fair Debt Collections Practices Act and for some reason they hung up on me both times. I suggest anyone like myself who receives the same unlawful calls from this number do the same and if you are like me make them a respondent to the civil action you file against them.

Their practices contravene federal law. Read it yourself and see...

I recieved a recorded message from the agency associated with 727-202-1062. It stated that civil action had been taken out on me & to call them with the case # they gave. I spent all morning trying to get through to them. I even called my local court. Was very stressful. Decided to google the phone #. Learned then that it was a scam. Hope it can be stopped soon. Hope they don't have my ss#.

At first it freaked me out, but the more I thought about it, I realized it must be a scam. How can they have a restraining order against me if I have never been served. This is ridiculous

I received a call from the Civil Investigations Unit calling about a civil matter and I've been named a respondent. Myself or lawyer had 48 hours to respond; in addition, I had a restraining order submitted.. Completely freaked my husband and I out because I had no clue where this came from. I kept calling the number provided but cant speak to NO ONE and the voicemail boxes are full.. They also threatened to put a lien on my back account and all other assets.. The complaint file number was W52A-3023 and their number was 210-544-5782

I got this same call but the number was 617-600-4177. i just came online to see what I could find and this is the exact info this call gave me. i haven't called it back.. i thought the same thing. if somebody is suing me/filing a restraining order against me, then the police would bring an order to my door, not over my phone. I'm not that dumb. I may owe money to creditors, but this isn't how they usually go about getting their money back.
Guess I'll be looking at changing my cell phone number soon.

The caller contacted and left a message not only at my home but also at a relative. I was taken back. The caller identified himself as a Tim Collins and I had 48 hrs to get back with them. Left a docket number and states the case is with the local county court.. I suspected something was not right so I google the number he left and it did not show up (908) 374-0486. Listening to the message again, he slipped and first said to call 72...and then said, oh, we have a new number. At the end of the call, he says, "good luck". Yeah, luck and a lawsuit!

I knew this was a lie because all I do is work, go to college and go to church. The number they said for me to call is 941-256-0413. The claim number they left on my voice mail was 5NV1-5395.

Something about the Civil Investigations Unit and something else about a restraining order and that I have 24-48 hours for my attorney to do something or other. Who knows. Anyone have any advice as to what I should do? It is a scam is what I have taken out of everyone's posting online, I want to put an end to it. They called my parents house that I just happened to be at visiting. Kinda freaked me out for real. Lets get these people put away....."WHOS COMING WITH ME???" LOL

These people have been calling my home for several months but since I never pick up the phone when a strange number appears I let the answering machine pick up the calls. They always hung up whenever the answering machine picked up but today they left the same message as everyone above. Thank God that when I called back I didn't speak to anyone and something told me to google the civil investigations unit to see if it was a legitimate company and I got this! Thanks to all of us that report these events people can know that these calls are nothing but scammers trying to steal people's identity. I really hope the FBI is doing something about this! They called me from a different number #252-375-3449. I hope they get caught and get what's coming to them!

It said: They were the civil investigations unit contacting me pursuant to a claim being filed against me. That I had been named a respondent to a court action regarding a restraining order. Telling me to please contact my attorney. That me and my attorney will have 24-48 hours to respond. The affadavit number is AVCS-2162. Call 727-720-1062.

I have called with no response, but they have also contacted every family member i have telling them i have a restraining order against me... which is false.

I am going to take the same stance suggested...
tell them i would be happy to file a federal action pursuant to the federal fair debt collections practies act in regards to their unlawful calls.

I was called on my phone for another member of my family that does not use nor gives out my information. The call stated that my family member was being named in a civil action and there was a restraining order as well. This made no sense. When I called the number it was very apparent that it was a collector and they are using deceitful tactics to collect on dead debts!
I reported them to the FCC and encourage everyone to do so, it only takes a few minutes but that is how you get these scams stopped!
