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.

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.

So, now ole John is calling Mississippi. I received untold numbers of voice messages from 202-803-5787 & 202-417-2021 which is a recording as follows, "Hello. My name is John Spencer. I'm calling from Arbitration Resolution in regards to possible litigation pending against you. When contacting our office please have your case number available 2014-xxxxxx You have 48 hours to resolve this issue. Press 9 to speak to a claims processor or call us back at 888-278-8565. Failure to comply will result in a complaint to be formalized with your residing county. Thank you, and good luck."
He also says something about "this is an allegation of check or bank fraud."
That would really scare (or worse, cause a heart attack or stroke to) an older person that their funds had been fraudulently used. How can ole John Spencer sleep at night?

Caller name: John spencer Arbitration resolution

When I first had this number calling me I was very concern to figure out who would want to sue me. I've had this number call me from an 843, 404, 678, and 1-888 area code with the same automated voice. I called back one time and they refuse to tell me who was suing me unless I verified information. I told them I do not claim the debt and if they were suing me they had my address and could send the officers there. Lets say..my 48 hours have been up last almost two years ago. They just started calling back last year. Im with everyone else, this is an old debt that has reached the statue of limit and they are doing scared tactics. If they call you, ask them to send written information on that debt to see if it is yours (they can not refuse..by law) if they do tell them you will no longer discuss or accept a debt that you can not verify. I put them on auto reject.

Received a voicemail message from a John Spencer from Arbitration Resolution about a possible litigation against me. Message went on to say that when calling back, please have my case number which was given as well. Goes on to say that we have 48 hours to resolve this issue and to call back at 1-888-278-8565; ended message by saying failure to comply will result in a claim to be filed in the county that I reside in. This is the 2nd time they have tried to pull this scam on me for a credit card debt that was paid off in 2007. I faxed in evidence that the debt was paid off the first time they contacted me. Now, they're calling again. I won't be contacting them again.

I got a call on 02/24/2014 from automated voice stating his name was john spencer at. Message says they are "arbitration resolution" about legal action being filed in my County if issue not resolved within 48 hours. They said to call back at 888 278-8565. But, the number that appeared on my caller id was 616-604-2567 and I spoke with a Jennifer Jones from "arbitration resolution and that I owed Cash USA money. I had already paid Cash USA in 2013. They are the third person that is supposedly calling saying cash usa is their client they are collecting on their behalf. I explained this the Jennifer Jones and she stated that they didn't have a fax number that I could fax the proof but I could email it scottmajors@arbitrationresolution.net. This is the third company that has contacted me claiming to collect money on Cash USA's behalf.

I told her to send me the name, SSN, birth date, address and signed copies with my signature of the original documentation to my home and she stated they will send someone to serve me with papers for court instead.

If they can't send copies of the original documentation then they have nothing but a name and number to call. Do not give any voluntary information until they provide proof.

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.

Same "Arbitration Resolution" Fraud as everybody else has written about. Called from a local 801 exchange, and with the same 1-888-278-8565 call-back number with a 2014-xxxxxx case number. Today is President's Day, so the Attorney General for the State of Utah's office is closed, Tomorrow I'll call them. Somehow these people need to be stopped, and I'm sure there is a way to do it. A legitiment collector would also send a letter as proof of contact since a phone call is hard to prove and is easily deniable So if you call them, see if they will send out a letter but don't hand out your address. Legit's would already have that info.

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

First received a message on my cell phone from a John Spencer that if I did not respond in 48 hours that a warrant will be issued for my arrest. I decided to look further into the situation. Then message was left from a 786-358-518 number, but in the message he left a 888-278-2565 number. I tried calling yesterday did not get anyone. Called this morning and a Scott Major answered the phone no business name just hello, which made me a little suspicious. He asked me some questions I vaguely answered them after I explained that I am not working he then informs me that a warrant and subpoena will be filed, I said ok and hung up the phone. Then began to research as I used to file arbitration cases so I looked for his name as a registered arbitrator in the State of Florida to success. So I called back and asked Scott for a copy of the complaint that was filed with the arbitration court as a respondent I have a right to file an answer to the complaint. Scott became enraged and yelling telling me that I don't know what I am talking about and he didn't care about what was proper protocol or not and hung up the phone on me and now refuses to answer the phone.

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.

The message was not sent to any specific person, yet claims I've got an unresolved debt. As others have posted, the message goes on to say that I have only 48 hours to resolve. Well, I called the number & left them a message ... "By law, everyone is supposed to have a debt presented to them in written form. It must detail who is alleging the owed debt, the service rendered, date, amount, etc. If this is legit, then I expect to see it in written form for my attorney to examine!" No return call.

I have been getting calls from the same as above....a computer voice mail from a John Spencer with arbitration resolutions. So far 4 calls since February. 5 if I count the first from a Mr. Wallace, whom was extremely rude on the phone. They were calling from a local Utah number!! Said Bank of America was suing me. They wanted $3500.00 right then. I asked for a letter stating the facts of the case and they started yelling at me that I'd get a letter all right in the form of a summons from the sheriff and to have a great day at work and then they hung up on me. The second call I told them the credit card they were saying I owed money on had been paid off and cancelled 13 years ago, they asked me to email proof to a ScottMajors@arbitrationresolutions.net. I called Bank of America and they said it sounded like fraud and I was correct about my account. I'd like to know how these people are getting such information. Since the second call it's been the computer caller not a person. I don't answer that number any more, it goes straight to voicemail. How do you get the calls to stop completely?

Got thie same scam call today March 19, 2014 in FL. Said litigation had only 48 hrs to settle, same as others. The message also said to call back 888-278-8565 but the number on my missed calls came from a local number (within my area code). Called back but only got voicemail that said all agents were busy and to leave my name, account number, and phone number and someone would get back to me. Leave an account number? I don't have an account with any company named Arbitration Resolution....They're so dumb they can't even get their voicemail right. No one will call you back if you leave your name and number. I would suggest NOT leaving your name because your name and number together may constitute two pieces of PII (Personally Identifiable Information). Hello identity theft!! This is definitely a SCAM!
