Erin Shank and her employees are very professional. They explained the process to me thoroughly. One of the things that I appreciated most is that they were not judgemental. I would recommend her to anyone who is considering bankruptcy, especially Veterans. She is an expert in provisions that … Read More
I thought it was his first name that he was a process server and that ii was being prosecuted for fraud on a payday loan this person also called my family members and told them the same thing she said she was calling from ACS litigation i called and gave the I did not know what to do, but I did not have to say that they would like to have me.

the phone, because I had not received any correspondence from the company. He told me it was not their responsibility to chase me down to collect a debt, that it was my responsibility to take care of it myself. As their lawyer, I could pay him and it would all go away. I said no, and he hung up on me, laughing, quite rudely, stating, “Have fun rotting in prison.”
For half a century, memories of the Holocaust limited anti-Semitism on the Continent. That period has ended-the recent fatal attacks in Paris and Copenhagen are just the latest examples of rising violence against the Jews. Renewed vitriol among right-wing fascists and new threats from radicalized Islamists have created a crisis, confronting Jews with an agonizing choice.
When the giant Indian technology-service firm Infosys announced last November that it would open a design and innovation hub in Providence, the company’s president said one of the key reasons he chose Rhode Island was its strong network of higher-education institutions: Brown University, the Rhode Island School of Design, and the Community College of Rhode Island.
I got a call last week for my husband from 215-987-5464 said his name was Officer John William gave me some Badge #. Said my husband had a complaint against him for Payday Advance Loan from 2011 and the charges were 849.25 with the original loan amt and intest charges and court charges and said he was fixing to issue a warrant for him if we did not pay that amount. I told him I did not have that kinda of money that I would have to set up something on a pmt. I told him I was already in the wrong at the bank but I had overdraft so I could pay the 100.00 today but he said
In your case it sounds so much like the rest of the scams others have shared here on this post so it’s wise to keep on guard. The next time they call, try to get as much contact information about the company – including address, contact phone, name, etc. – then ask them to please provide written documentation in the mail to validate the debt. As we have stated in previous posts, this is a standard procedure when dealing with any debt collector and by law, the collector must comply with this request. If they refuse, they are breaking the law under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and have no right to continue to try to collect. In fact, under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, if a collector contacts you by phone they have 5 days in which to send you formal written notice that you owe the debt. The notice must include the amount of the debt, the name of the creditor, and your right to dispute the debt, in writing, within 30 days of receipt of the notice.
DEYOUNG: If we take an objective look at the folks who use payday lending, what we find is that most users of the product are very satisfied with the product. Survey results show that almost 90 percent of the users of the product say that they are either somewhat satisfied or very satisfied with the product afterwards.
Joseph – You may want to alert your employer. This scam is well documented from many sources so hopefully your employer would be understanding if you explained that you are being targeted by a scammer.
As for the other instance, I do not know whether you were scammed or not, but you can certainly do some research to find out whether the collection agency you paid was legitimate. In some states, they must be registered and
I also received several calls from an unidentified no. but the call sounds like she’s calling from overseas and can not make out the details. I called the Lady back and a male with a great Indian accent answered “Hello this is Dominic, How can I help? I asked the man the name of the company he represents and he goes Marshall and Associates. And he asked for my phone and he goes “I do not have that number in my system”. Yeah, exactly! ‘And he continues on asking me “If I have been briefed” Briefed about what? Moron. Oh! you have a pending lawsuit on committing fraud for taking out 35 payday loans, the bank tried to collect but they can not take

As I opened the CT scan last week to read the next case, I was baffled. The history just read “gun wound.” I have been a radiologist in one of the busiest trauma centers in the United States for 13 years, and have diagnosed thousands of handgun injuries to the brain, lung, liver, spleen, bowel, and other vital organs. I thought that I knew all that I needed to know about gunballs, but the specific pattern of injury on my computer screen was one that I had seen only once before.
Next time they call them that you have told them to the authorities and that you would like to record the conversation. That’s very well stop them. If not, talk with your phone company to see if you can set up some kind of call block or call screening so they can not get through.
I worked. I got all the information from the lady (who at the point was very nice and helpful). I then contacted my bank and requested bank statements for August and had no deposit from any other than my employer in my account. My bank told me it was a scam and not to worry about it. A couple of days later they called back for the money to avoid legal action. I told them I had bank statements
Thanks for sharing, Brooke. It always amazes us with some of the threats and claims these guys make: “Somebody would be here Friday at 11:00 a.m. to take me to California for my court on Monday at 11:00 pm “So, they’ll pick you up, drive or fly you to California for court, and put you up in a hotel for two nights while you wait for your short date on Monday? I’m almost speechless.
You can request a written verification of the debt if they call again to help determine whether you are dealing with a debt collector or a scammer. You can also contact your state attorney general and monitor your credit reports for signs of identity theft.
The Ultimate Guide to Debt Collectors. And do not be so tough on yourself. The scammers would not keep at it if they were not successful scaring people in paying money they did not have. We’ll bet you will not be a victim again.
I recently been scammed by a company called Brinkmen Alliance Group threatening that I do not pay them I’m going to get papers at my employer and home and that will have to appear in court and that my 2 cases against me are pending litigation. They are also a third party who is trying to collect a debt for a creditor that is not my original creditor (they state both the original and current creditors on the statement they emailed me) that is a bogus company. They are trying to collect a debt from me for a payday loan that I did not pay from 2005. Statute of limitations for debt collections in PA is 4 years for promissory notes. Brinkmen’s contact info is:
I received a call today from # 209-910-6390. Could not catch the name as he spoke very fast and with a deep accent. He claimed that he was calling on behalf of Cash Advance America USA that was suing me for $ 15,000 for a faulty payday loan of $ 2800.00. I let him give his little talk without interrupting and he told me that someone would be here Friday at 11:00 a.m. to take me to California for my court date on Monday at 11:00 a.m. Beware these guys are getting very crafty and make a lot of stuff that they say they believe. Please DO NOT believe these guys. I just told him thank you for the call and that I would be contacting the FBI about the call because I knew from the start that it was a scam !!! He just said go ahead and that somebody would be at my work tomorrow.
I just received
The CFPB does not have the authority to limit interest rates. Congress does. So what the CFPB is asking for is that payday lenders either thoroughly evaluate the borrower’s financial profile or limit the number of rollovers for a loan, and offer easy refund terms. Payday lenders say even these regulations may just be put out of business – and they may be right. The CFPB estimates that the
DUBNER: Let’s say you have a one-on-one audience with President Obama. We know that the President understands economics pretty well or, I would argue that at least. What’s your pitch to the President for how this industry should be treated and not eliminated?
You need to get a handle on the collections process. before you make contact with these gubbers, because they will know if you do not know your rights and they will push you around to get you to acknowledge the debt, accept it and agree to make a payment. That means never ever acknowledges, accept or agree to pay a debt. Period! Even if you owe. Never! Follow the law and get a VOD first. Never ever confirm your details to them. If they claim you are a federal law FDCPA, the burden to be so is on them, you should have your details down. So just tell them to send whatever they have to the address on record. The reason you do not accept a debt is if the statute of limitation has expired for FDCPA the debt is time barred and noncollectable. If you accept it, it restarts the clock all over again.
I would recommend you report this to the CFPB and the FTC. Give them as much information as you have about the caller. Next time they call, tell them at the outset you will be recording the call to turn over to law enforcement. Hopefully then they will realize they’re not going to get anything from you and move on.
they got my work phone # through my company cell phone. He (the law enforcement official) as he represented himself would not give his company info or address. When I asked for written verification, he refused and said the police were on the way to get me. He had a similar conversation with my boss the night before. He did have my bank information, at least the name of my bank. I had already called the FTC and started a case, when I gave the reference number and the investigators name, he said the cops should be there any minute and hung up on me. He then tried to call my work again and hung up while being on hold. I am a criminal justice major and I have to say that it shook me up. I called my financial institution and really I am in good standing, transferred my debit money to savings, cancelled my debit card, and called the trans-union to flag my social for fraud. The charge as I got him to admit was writing bad checks on my debit account, really ???! I do not know if I will receive any further calls since I throw down the trumpet of the FTC, start a case, get a reference #. Can I ask for help from local law enforcement? Their call back # gets to them.

Does a researcher who’s out to make a splash with some sexy finding necessarily work with more bias than a researcher who’s working out of pure intellectual curiosity? I do not think that’s necessarily so. Like life itself, academic research is a case-by-case scenario.

People this stuff is a SCAM they CAN NOT arrest you for having a faulty payday loan. They first have to take you to court and they CAN NOT contact you by phone to inform you of it. You have to be served from the court of the court and where the court is and who is being taken to court for and for what reasons.
DUBNER: Hey Christopher. So, as I understand it, much of what you’ve learned about CCRF’s involvement in the payday research comes from a watchdog group called the Campaign for Accountability, or CFA? So, first off, tell us a bit more about them, and what their incentives may be.
It sounds like if you’re talking to a scammer. (See 9 Signs You Are Talking to Debt Collection Scammer.) Real collectors are not allowed to make such threats (and do you really think the government insists on the payment made by a certain issuer and a certain drugstore chain). The caller is trying to get you in the way that makes your money unrecoverable once you realize it’s a scam. (See The One Way You Should Never Pay Debt Collector.)
No, debtors are not allowed to threaten you. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is now taking complaints about collection practices. You can file one here:
