I got a vmail from someone stating that I was going to have legal matters taken against me in 24hours if I did not contact Thomas Bates at 850-546-6444. I called the number the next day and was told that I had an outstanding payday loan. I told them that I already looked up their number and seen that they were fraud and asked them not to contact my number ever again. The man on the phone got irate and then hung up on me.

This person called and left voice mail saying I have an outstanding debt and had to pay it right away or legal proceedings are going to occur.

Fortunately, I realized this is a scam and did not buy in to it.

I got a voice mail stating i had 24 hours to contact 850-546-6444 regarding claim # 850239 pending legal action. First off legal action is always handled in writing not some phony phone scam. I called the number and got a message that it was after hours and i should leave my name and contact information. To which i left them the claim number given to me and told them to remove my number from their list or I will take legal action.

Like everyone else mentioned, voice mail said to call back Thomas Bates at 850-546-6444. Caller ID was a local number from Moreno Valley, CA. I called back the number on Caller ID and the message said it was "Legal Mediation Solutions" and told me to leave my information, including the case number and someone would call me back, unless I left any incorrect information.

I received the same call this morning from a 408 area code but on the voicemail it was left a number to call back to an 850-546-6444. It a good think i check online or else I would of called them back. They didn't leave a name from which company they were working for. They just said a legal matter is pending and will be file with the court within 24 hours or else. Provide me with a case number starting with a 100xxx. It didn't state what this case was about or anything. Anyway I am glad I didn't call back. I just wish this type of business stop. Isn't there anything the FTB or the BBB can do about scam businesses?

They call saying it was a legal matter and will be taken to court! Call originally came in showing a local number then the 850 number! I did call it back and advised them that their scam is well documented, they were calling a business number and to never contact me again. I also advised him that I have contacted my local Police department, since they made the initial call look like it was coming from a local number, and filed a report as well as filed a complaint with the FTC and notified the State Attorney Generals fraud prevention unit. He hung up.

This is the second time they are calling me. Another fraud like this called me earlier in 2015 and I actually paid a settlement to them for around $400. I'm so dumb! Now this Thomas and Bates are calling me telling me the same thing the first callers did. Now I'm the fool out money, and still receiving these calls.

They stated that I have a legal matter pending against me and it's a final attempt. They originally called in using a local number so I answered it the first time and the person on the other end stated I had a credit card that was in collections of about $1000 and that I needed to take care of it or be sued. They were very anxious to getting banking information from me to make payments to avoid the matter. I told them I can't talk right now, I'm working. From then on I've received calls 1-2 times weekly. I've researched both the local number and the 850 number. Of course it leads to no where but SCAMS!!

I keep getting a call about 2-3 times a month for the last six months from this local number to call 850-546--6444 for Thomas Bates. Wants me to call back to settle a debt to pay in full before court date. I have previously had calls from this same number and ask for this same person to arrange a time to come to my house to settle a debt before court proceedings. What a load of BS. might as well leave a message saying: hi I'm stupid, I am a fraud and I want your money. Because that's how I hear it.

I continue to get phone calls from various phone numbers trying to intimidate me that they will be serving me at my place of employment or at my residence. I conferred with my legitimate attorney a year ago when he advised me it's probably a scammer. He told me it has happened to him.

Got a call from them stating that they were collecting a debt for a Bank First credit card that I never remember having. Had just got a call week before threatening me that I would be extradited back to Fl if I did not pay this debt which I was on probation so I panicked because did not want to go back to jail. Needless to say I paid it and now realized it was a scam after investigating but was it was already to late. So when these people called they were told the only way anything would be gotten out of us was something had to be sent in mail or a person better show up at my door. A so called company that goes by Albertson & Associates it doing the same scam and their number is 1-866-948-1086. All I know is these type of people will pay for their sins ones day. I hope this helps anybody else not to get involved in a scam like us.
