Caller name: john spencer

Just another scam debt collector, this time from a john spencer at 713 904-1618. Message says they are "arbitration resolution" but apparently they also go by "ars national services" and "legal outsourcing". Three different names, a sure sigh of a scam outfit. Usual message left about legal action being filed in my County if issue not resolved within 48 hours. They said to call back at 888 278-8565. I hope they hold their breath waiting.

I've been getting the same threating phone calls and voicemails for YEARS. They can call from any number they want. Block one number and they call from another. They do this every year at tax season hoping they can scare people into giving them money, knowing most people get money back this time of year. It's fun to speak to them in a very educated manner and not let them get one word out of their mouth before you tell them, I just want you to know that this phone call is being recorded and if you don't agree with that then please by all means hang up the phone, if you continue to speak to me then you're consenting to be recorded. That usually gets their panties in a twist and they'll cuss you out or hang up the phone and then call you over and over again for a few seconds. Threaten them with legal action. They are not allowed to attempt a "debt" in the manner that they do. If they call back again just block all their numbers and don't speak to them. They'll leave you alone in a few months and be back full force next year when tax returns are coming in.

Scam by a caller with the name of John Spencer. These people think we are stupid to fall for their scam. They must be incompetent criminals. I wish they have the courage to face us and do it face to face.

I received a canned message stating there was arbitration pending against me and gave a case number. When calling 888-278-8565 back, the very rude person on the line stated an attorney holding the case had arbitration pending against me. When I was very informed about my credit report and outstanding items, since I just purchased a new home and know for sure there is nothing outstanding. I asked for his office name and asked for who I was speaking to and they did not provide the information. THIS IS A SCAM!!!!!

Caller name: Aribitration/Resolutions

This is what I sent the FBI yesterday. No answer from them.

This number is answering today. 971-228-0007

Bust 'em?


Hi,

I received a voicemail today that I was to call this number
1-888-278-8565. It gave me a code number to use when I call,
201 4-8884. I was told to call within 48 hours or I could be
sued by the county I reside in.

I figured it was a scan. The 888 number is all over Google as
a scan. They claim to be "arbitration resolution".

They called me from a local number that reverse directory's
to Beaverton, Or. 971-228-0007.

I called them for two hours and messed with them, They did answer
half the time and half the time voicemail. They kept telling me to quit
calling and I kept on calling them criminals. I could tell I messed with
their
scam line for two hours. The are not legit. I spoke with the AG's office.

What I don't understand is why these criminals are so hard to catch. They
use a local number. I assume it's some kind of spoof number or such?

Anyway if it's any help try calling it. They will be happy to assist you.
971-228-0007

thank you
---------------------------------

PLEASE HELP AND DO WHAT I HAVE DONE.
CALL THIS NUMBER 971-228-0007 AND KEEP
HANGING UP ON THEM FOR TWO HOURS STRAIGHT.
JAM THE LINE. IT'S THE SAME ONE'S BEHIND THE
888-278-8565.

I am in Georgia. I answered the call because it was from Georgia and a recorded Message on Phone said to call John Spencer and reference case # 2014-58090. Said I had 48 hours to settle some kind of pending litigation or a case would be filed against me within 48 hours. My caller ID showed the incoming number to be (706) 247-8851 (Ga.). Glad I looked up the number before even trying to call back.

Caller name: John Spencer

Received a call from "attorney" John Spencer from Arbitration Resolutions. He said that I had until the following day to pay an account that I had with a bank back in the early 2000s. If I didn't pay they would take me to court in my county. They had so much information on me that at first I thought it was legitimate and it scared me to death. Like a fool I paid them $500 (they claimed I owed the bank over $6,000). I should have done research on them before paying them one penny. The internet is full of complaints about this outfit and they go by various names. I intend to file with the FCC or whatever other entity can perhaps help me. I am talking to the original bank right now...they are looking up the old account I had with them. The lady said I should file a police report. Will write back on this site with the results of my attempts against these scammers so other people may be helped.

Caller stated that it was relative to a legal matter and that I must respond within 48 hours to avoid litigation. When I called back and asked them the nature of the business, the person who responded said they needed the "number I was provided." When I said, you need to tell me first the nature of this business because this number was listed as "fraudulent," he became immediately combative. I do not intend to call back again and/or provide any information, so am glad this was out there.

There was a voice mail left on my business main line but not to anyone's attention. The message said it was about a collection and if i guess anyone ( hint hint) didn't comply within 48 hrs that legal action would be taken in my county. Called back a little while ago and the 888 2788565 and it goes directly to his voice mail (hint hint) no extension or company directory for that number. And not left to anyone's attention. Then I read all of these reviews. I say don't fall for it

I get this twice a day from the 888-278-8565, but, it goes to a local number. 971-228-0007. Rude woman who demanded I unblock my number when I called. Same 40-hour threat. Now they found my cell phone, even though it is under different name.

Called and left a voicemail stating legal action would be pending against me if I did not return his call and resolve the litigation issue within 48 hours. Gave me the option to dial 9 or call back to 888-278-8565. When I did, some female wanded to argue that this was my last chance to settle on the $695 I owed for a Capital One Visa that I had never had! Or I could just pay half the amound and we would not go to court. WHen I tried to ask for some more information, she told me my current address, date of birth and SSN. SHe tried to give me a previous address, but had it wrong. When I questioned her on the previous address, she got really upset and told me she would not debate it. I tried to explain how I had been a victim of ID fraud in the past but she didn't want to hear it. I tried to get more info about the supposed credit card and she wouldn't provide any, only claiming she would see me in cournt and HANGING UP!!! When I tried to call back, they wouldn't answer. FUnny, if they want to make a settlement, you would think they would not let that phone sit on the hook! So I called teh number on my caller id - 317-219-4413 and got another guy who gave me a supposed Visa account number and said they would not debate anything with me but only sue me for the entire balance. Good luck! I will be happy to show up in court with all my legal documentation.
