A lady called named mrs turner said she was from johnson and associates, she spoke to my husband and left thesame number as everyone else ecept her ect# 712. when i called back a recording came on saying, if this is about a court summons u recieved.. then says leave ur name and number and they will call back. I owe some debts but havent recieved anything from court. does anyone know if this is a real law firm ?? and if it is a scam??
Caller name: Ms. Turner
Got a message at my WORK to call this lady at Johnson and Associates and they told my boss it was about a pending court matter. Pretty sure it's a scam, and if not, they are breaking SO many of the collection laws....
Caller name: Mr. Adams
I got a call that I let go to voicemail. It did not address anyone by name but said it was a "Mr. Adams" and to call him back at this number for a "business matter." We do not have any outstanding debts to anyone, so this is just a junk call.
Caller name: don
got a call from a don at johnson & assocites at ext 705 at my job and said I will be sent to court for $404.00 I mentioned to him to stop calling me at work and im filling a complain against them and he hung up on me!
Caller name: Ms. Wilson
I attempted to research Johnston and Associates litigation firm, and couldn't locate any information. Before calling this "firm" back I read all the information posted here. When I did call back the number Ms. Wilson stated that they were a Litigation Law Firm, when I offered to set up payment arrangments I was told that could not be done and I would just have to go to court and pay a higher fee + court costs and attorney fees. I don't know where to look for the correct infromation, does anyone here know if this is truely a Law firm or just a collection company. I can't locate anything in the FTC stating that a person can be taken to court when they have tried to work out arrangements in writing. Can anyone PLEASE help? I'm not trying to NOT pay my bills just make arrangements I can afford.
Caller name: Mr. Adams
I got the same call at work saying my client needs a recommendation but they fail to leave a name of my client. they called about 5 times already and left a voice mail each time. But something is not right. Don't respond !!!!!
Robot voice said: Goodbye.
Then hung up...
THIS SO CALLED LAW FIRM HAS CONTACTED ME 3 TIMES AND THEY HAVE TOLD ME IN THE VOICEMAILS THAT THIS WILL BE GOING TO COURT IF THIS WAS TRUE HOW COME I HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANYTHING IN THE MAIL CERTIFIED... WHAT HAPPENS IS THAT AFTER YOUR NAME GOES ON A LIST FOR COLLECTIONS A LOT OF PEOPLE GET THAT INFO AND TRY TO SCAM PEOPLE OUT OF $$$$ THIS HAS HAPPENED TO ME I SETTLE WITH A BILL COLLECTOR AND I HAVE A LETTER STATING I OWE A $0.00 BALANCE. I PERSONALY WOULD NOT GIVE THEM ANY INFORMATION.
Caller name: Mr Adams
If and when they call again, I will be asking them a few questions such as birthdate, verification of Social Security number, mother's maiden name, place of birth, blood type etc... Fortunately, I made clear to the party that I reached that I had no business interest with their 'firm' and did not know the party they were calling for. This only took a half dozen calls or so, until I reached a nice lady that understood and was surprisingly apologetic.
Caller name: Mr. Adams
This place tried to collect money from me on a debt that I paid in full 2 years ago. The call on my phone shows up as a local #, but they leave a message to call 8776847731. The guy I got when I called them didn't seem to know if he was Mr. Adams or Mr. Barnes. And when I started to explain proof that debt was pd off, he was real quick to say he just wrote it off and I am good.
Definitely a very shady outfit. If one more call ever comes to me from this outfit, I will seek help from authorities!
Caller name: Mr.Adam
I received a vociemail at my job saying the same thing as everyone else when i called back a woman answer and when i kept saying her phone was breaking up which it was she hung up. I will be sending this to my attorney. its a scam
Caller name: Unsure
I received two phone calls today from this same number, it came up on my cell phone as a 714 area code (Orange County). Stated they have contacted my HR department (of which we do not have). Joke is on you fools, I am like everyone else. If you have all this "so called" information, why have I not received anything by certified mail! DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM!!
Caller name: Johnston and associates
Jessica Mahony called me from Trident Financial
network for an outstanding debt, which I paid, when I called to verify my last payment, I was told all the files previously owned by Trident was sold to Johnston and Associates and that my account was closed, two weeks later, I began getting calls from
johnston and associates for a collection of debt. It's a scam, that unfortunately I fell for, Do not answer, they call from a local numbe too, and when you google the local number, nothing pops up. It's a scam for sure.
Caller name: Larry Humphrey
Didn't get a call, but the number in an email from this "firm" and "agent" matches the one above. First flag I found was that the address used to identify me to them is almost 20 years old. So, I googled the firm's name and found this (http://johnston-associates.net/terms_and_conditions) which seemed somewhat legit until I read through the page and found numerous grammatical and punctuational errors. HUGE flag. Decided to go back through the email again and found this - "If you have any questions relative to the above referenced account. Our office hours are Monday & Tuesday 9:00am - 8:00pm EST, Wednesday thru Friday 9:00am - 6:30pm EST. You can contact us on our Toll Free number 1-877-684-7731" (notice the improperly placed period between 'account' and 'our' should at least be a comma).
Either way, legit or not, they first need to get their S**t straight to have any hope at all to be taken somewhat seriously by me, your friendly neighborhood, mild-mannered bullshit detector.
Caller name: Mr. Watson
Received a call from 877-684-7731 saying there from Johnson & Assoc, this a FRAUD COMPANY. There trying to get money when not there's! When Mr. Watson called me yesterday from a regular phone number he asked a few ? then hung up on me. VERY FISHY. Don't give NO INFO to them.
Caller name: Trisha and Mr Adams
Had two calls to my cell phone number with voicemails. The first was from Trisha looking for 'Heather' which is not me - didn't catch the last name but a claim number was mentioned and I or my attorney should contact them.
The 2nd was from Mr Adams - no name mentioned and this one said it was a collection agency.
We do not have any outstanding debt - thought it might be a wrong number and was going to call them back, but won't bother now
