Do not talk to these people nor call them back. If they have legal action you will receive something in writing from your local Courts. Remember EVERYTHING in writing. You will have time to dispute it in writing and ALWAYS request the original debt information should they produce some bogus debt (doubtful they will do this) they are targeting people that they can scare. I like the idea that 'Anonymous' has, lets all call and hang up all day long, anytime we have a free moment, just call..LOL If they call you to tell you to stop calling do not answer it because all you will do is argue. You cannot reason with uneducated idiots and a liar...

John Spencer left a message about legal action being filed in my County if issue not resolved within 40 hours. You can tell it is a recording. They said to call back at 888 278-8565. They have called several times on different dates. I never answer numbers I do not recognize and I know I have no unpaid debts so I haven't spoken with them. I also do a yearly credit report and nothing shows up that someone has used my information and ran up past debt. So they are wasting their time with my call.

Caller name: Arbitration Resolution

I received 2 robot calls from 888-278-8865, (Arbitration Resolutions) with them leaving a message and a ref. number. I called the number, gave the ref. # and spoke to a guy who would not give me much info. I asked if they had a website as I was on the computer looking it up, he said "call me back when you find it". I did find a website for Arbitration Resolution Services Inc. Called them at a different number 1-888-934-1777 gave the woman the ref. #, she then said I have the wrong number and that she has had MANY people calling this # with the same issue. I called 888-278-8865 back and spoke to a woman who told me the guy I spoke to was busy and to call back, but after I insisted she talk to me, she finally told me her company was hired by a credit card company to collect a 1500.00 debt from me from 2007. I told her I did not owe anyone and asked again what year, she then gave me 2005, 2002, 2008.???? Being aggravated in trying to find out which year it was, she finally hung up on me. I called back and spoke to yet another woman, told her my phone died and I was just trying to get their address. she gave me:
Arbitration Resolutions 970 Carillion Dr. St. Petersburg Fl. 33716. I told her that I knew this company is a scam and that if they contact me again, I will get my lawyer to sue them for harassment. I did a reverse look-up at Whitepages.com for this address and nothing came up. I checked my credit report for free @ www.annualcreditreport.com and did NOT find a debt from ANY company. I have since put a block on my credit and have been told to contact the attorney general in my state.

They have called me twice in the past 2 weeks now but nobody ever answers when I call back. Is this something I should be worried about or is this a scam?

I also have received four calls leavening a message I needed to call them because in 48 hrs there would be charges filed against me, I just laffed at it n blocked the number. This was on my cell phone to say the least. They have called my mother saying the same thing. They even called the home I'm livening in. THE FCC N GOVERNMENT SHOULD CRACK DOWN ON THESE PEOPLE AND ANY ONE THAT DOES THIS !!!!!!! The people doing this are targeting the unaware and the elderly. For each time they call me there are at least 10 others that will fall prey to this scam !!!! They monitor our phones so it should be extremely easy to find these people , they tract the cell towers to see where calls are coming from so they know a radius of where they are. Oh we'll only time will tell if anything is done about all these thieves. Thank you for reading this

These people call a few weeks twice. Once it showed a local #, second time it was an Arizona #. I called and they claimed I owe Back loan to Cash Call and I was in default status. I told them the payments had been going to a law firm since March 2009 and I have a balance of $100 which will be paid off this month. I'll gave them the law firm information. I called the law firm and was told to ignore those people. I called AR back and was told I had nothing to worry about since I had kept my payment agreement. Did I mentioned that Cash Call and their associates were sued last December for illegal loan transactions and trying to sue past customers for loans that were paid off? Today, I got another call from this so called John Spencer telling me to call within 48 hrs and good luck with a different act #. Do they think people are stupid?

Got the call from John Spencer, women stated that I owed them over $1000 for a credit card in 2002. I never had this credit card! She almost got me though because she knew my social security number! When I told her I needed to investigate further she told me I had 1 minute or they would see me in court and hung up on me!

I had the same calls as everyone else above. I called ALL the numbers listed for these people BUT I'm guessing the reason no one answered on any of them was due to the fact I had my numbered blocked. I don't understand why these shisters are still getting away with this, Won't any of the watch dog groups do anything? Guess not.

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.

Everything I've read about this is so true...it's a total SCAM!
Long story short - no one answered at the 888 # so I called the local number back, the guy was a total d**k. He did have some correct information about me but it was super strange. I asked him for a day to look into it and he got pissed, he told me I was making him late because he was getting on a flight that day and I told him that I thought he was lying...then he HUNG UP ON ME!!
Once I started doing some research I'm sooo glad that I didn't pay him. It does sound convincing, especially when he threatening you with court and lawyers.
SCAM!

Called 888-278-8565 back in regards to voicemail on MY cell phone. Said they were calling for my Husband on an account that he opened up 14 years ago waaay before we met. So I proceeded to ask him how he got my number, and his response was: We received it from the company that has asked us to obtain this LONG TIME debt....SO let me get this straight, My husband opened up an account in NY, (We now live in IL) with my phone number that is an IL cell phone back in 2000 when we hadn't even met yet? We started dating in 2005 when he moved here from NY..... Yeah ok. They basically get info about past due collections and then phish for the rest hoping to get paid money that is not legally theirs. This account was paid off in 2003. He claims that he has removed my number from their records.....
Be careful. They are liars.

They have called me three times asking for someone who doesn't live here. I called them back and stated I was not that person and not to call again. They called again. I returned their call to get an address to send a letter to stating that they would be sued for harassment if this continued, but "all agents are currently busy."

Caller name: Allison/John Spencer

I received a call from a number with a different area code that told me to call the 888-278-8565 number. I did call and they told me about court summons for fraud and breach of contract with a payday loan that I had included in banktruptcy and it was discharged. Without checking to make sure that it was discharged I allowed them to scare me into paying $100 towards a supposed $900 settlement. After this I received many calls from other numbers for the same thing all threatening me with court summons, etc. So when the other company was to receive a payment again and they found out the payment was declined because I cancelled my card, they called me and said that if I didn't make a payment that they didn't know when, but John Spencer would be handing me court summons for court. I told her that I contacted CashCall personally, which I did, and they advised me that in fact my account was closed and I did not owe them anything and that it was charged off with bankruptcy. I explained about what was happening and they said they have had other complaints as well. When I told her this she got smart with me and told me that they were retained by CashCall to collect, which I have found is against the law to collect on a debt that was discharged on bankruptcy. This Allison got smart with me and told me "Well, then have the person from CashCall represent you in court!!". These people really need to be stopped. I guess that they figured out that I found out that they are scammers. She had the nerve to tell me that this was not a scam. But the same number is popping up everywhere on the internet with the same threats. This time though they called from 888-794-2763.

I was called last week by phone number:(760)819-8036 and was directed to press "9" to speak to a Customer Service Rep stating that I owed Cash USA over $680 after I took out a payday advance loan. They CSR had my former married name that I haven't used since 2007, but the scariest thing is that she had my FULL SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER. I informed the CSR that I have never taken out a payday advance loan and I don't know how they came across my personal information, but they needed to stop calling and using my personal info, etc. The CSR then tried to threaten me with"Well, we can do this the easy way or the hard way. If you don't pay or at least settle part of the debt, you will be served with court paperwork and sued." This is obviously a scam but what bothers me is that they have my personal information, my SSN# and my phone number, etc. Someone needs to stop them!
