Ask the collector for the name and address of the agency for which he or she works. Then ask him to send you written information about the debt. Any legitimate debt collection agency will do this because it is required under the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
I’m really sorry to say that you are going to be legally prosecuted in the Court House within a couple of days. Your SSN is put on hold by US Government, so before something goes wrong I thought I would call you and notify you about this matter. But as I was not able to reach you I am sending you an ultimate email notification. So please take a piece of paper and write down your case MW18240 and second thing since it’s a legal matter you will need my help, so please write down my callback number is 315-999-7327 Ext 2000
My daughter (who’s phone number has not been associated with me) received a call from (602) 726-0102 form an unknown company, addressing me, that I was under investigation and needed to call them back. My daughter gave me the info and I called them back.
Turn the tables on this caller. Tell her you have written written notice of the debt which is your right under federal law. If she refuses to give it to her you will be recording all future calls to turn over the authorities.
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
lending at 25 percent a year, there are no stores at all.
from overseas, they are right here in the United States. I work for an outsourcing company at law firm. They called my manager on his cell phone while he was in a meeting. My manager answered it thinking that it was someone he knew since the number had the same area as the city we live in. The man on the other line told him that he was a server server and that I should call him at 855-282-0910 or I would be served papers at my job for check fraud. I already knew that this was bogus but either I called to tell them not to call my manager’s number EVER !!! When I got someone on the line, they kept telling me that I had a PDL from last year. I did not even care about that mess because they did not send me any correspondence and I know they must have violated so many laws just by diclosing that info to my manager. In the end they refused to call him and blamed it all on the server server. When I called him back, it kept going to voicemail. I even went as far as looking up his name on a website for Texas process servers. Come to find out that they can falsify caller id information so you can believe that crap. Investigative Services, whatever. Oh, the name of the collection is Westwood Asset Management. They claim that the name of their company is Huntington, but that’s bull too. I found out that they like to change names as well as numbers. Just makes me sick.
It sounds like it is likely you are being scammed. If you give them your bank account information please contact your bank immediately for advice. Please read: 9 Signs You Are Talking to Debt Collection Scammer
for you to show up “. If they go to blatantly, they can use their own tactics against them.
I know you’re panicked about this, but do not be. Social Security payments are generally safe from creditors. (If you have a federally guaranteed loan your Social Security funds may be at risk but even then you will be notified in the phone and not from the phone call out of the blue.)
When Britain threw out 23 Russian diplomats in response to an assassination attempt on Russian agent Sergei Skripal, Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia and the current bad boy of modern geopolitics, shrugged it off. With the relations between London and Moscow so strained, the embassy did not have all that much to do, anyway. The cost, Putin no doubt felt, was predictable and bearable. Then on Monday, 20 other countries, from Albania to Ukraine, joined in a coordinated expulsion campaign, with the United States accounting for 60 of the Russians sent packing. On Tuesday, NATO announced it would expel seven Russian diplomats in response to the poisoning. Suddenly, the Kremlin is not looking really so comfortable. With the Skripal hit, it looks like Putin may have finally overreached.
Call went to my MIL’s house. Phone number was 877-334-5288. Said they needed me to call before 5 p.m. I called them, they started the whole laughter about I had an old payday loan and was going to be charged with frud, malicious intent, etc. I stopped the guy and asked for his company name and address and he hung up on me. LOL Think I’m going to call back and try again for the hell of it.
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.
I received an email from a law enforcement officer. He claimed that I have a cash advance Inc. money and that they were getting ready to take legal action against me. The seal on the email said 712th non court court court. They were expecting a reply from me so I gave them one.
I spoke with a lady named Savanna from the “Division of Processing”, who told me that I had On-Line Pay-Day Loan through Kenwood Services from 2010 that was unpaid and that it was determined that I did it with the intent to commit fraud money. The amount was for $ 420.00, but with fees added they were $ 1820.00 and additional court fees of $ 2500.00 would be added. When I began to ask questions (I thought that the account they claimed I put in the application was closed in 2008, and the address that was for me was 8 years old), she started to get angry with me. All I was doing was trying to get information about the original debt, which she could not give me. She also told me that I was going to be served in a criminal summary and prosecuted for Financial Fraud. When I started explaining to her the law about debt collection, the statute of limitation for legal action on such a debt, and that threatened me with crime action was indeed, illegal, she first told me “do not tell me how to do my job … “. Eventually, she hung up.

Yes .. I’m getting the same calls as you and from the same guy .. Timothy and yes, he said he’s calling from ADR .. and today I got a call from Tom Hayden who did not identify the company he was he .. he said he received a fax in his office and I had one chance to clear it up by calling 877 548-4064 .. he said I have charges pending against me and would be served. He did not leave a number he could be reached at only ADR’s number. When I called the lady said that I had a loan PD and that I had to pay it right then over the phone by credit card or debit card or give them a member of the credit card etc .. otherwise I was going to be served and would have to go to court and possibly be jailed for check fraud. She then put her “boss” on the phone who named her Gregory Scott and said she would do me a favor and reduce the amount owed by 200.00 which is what she was going to pay the server to come and serve me papers but Only if I can secure him with a debit card or credit card. I asked him where he thought I could get one and he said ACE cash express .. I told him I did not have a credit card nor did I have a pre-paid debit card .. I asked him for the information in writing so I could verify that they were legit and he hung up on me. Seriously, maybe we should do something about this ADR company .. they called my cousin and I never used my cousin as ANYTHING reference and they threatened him (this time when he just lost his sister to cancer) and they told him he needed to secure my debt.

My husband and I filed bankruptcy due to unforeseen circumstances and we had an outstanding payday loan. My attorney explained to us that a payday loan is treated as an unsecured debt and would file the papers and there was no need to worry about this because it would be included in the bankruptcy as unsecured. Needless to say I got a very dangerous call from a company called US Capital Management (855) 596-0411. They said they represented MYMONEYCHEST.com and they would see us in court for a balance. I asked the woman to contact my attorney and they said they could not because they are just the middle man in this. I told her if there is a balance and we are currently in a bankruptcy, there should be no reason they could not reach out to our attorney. I called my attorney and he said to have them call him. They will not! They told me that they were going to serve me papers at my job. Is this possible? Can they do that? I can not get them to give me any paperwork about this balance owed.
The APR on a short-term loan can vary greatly depending on how the APR is calculated, the duration of the loan, loan incurred, late payment fees, non-payment fees, loan renewal actions, and other factors. Keep in mind that the APR is not your finance charge and your finance will be disclosed later on, if applicable. See a See Representative Example
In either case, take notes of the conversation. In the event they sue you (which would be very rare if either of the scenarios I described are correct) you could show up and explain to the judge how they did not comply with the FDCPA. You could rent an attorney to sue them. If you win you would be entitled to damages and they would have to pay your attorney fees.
This company keeps calling me telling me they have papers to serve on me but first they need to contact me before they can serve them and i call them back and they say it ms solutions and i ask for information and address on them and they say they can not give it to me and they are a law firm but its different people that keep calling and when you call back they want you to verify your ss number and address so they can deliver what they have for you. Thanks Robin

The problem we’ve been looking at today is pretty straightforward: there are a lot of low-income people in the U.S. who has come to rely on a financial instrument, the payday loan, which is, according to its detractors, exploitative, and according to its supporters, useful. President Obama is pushing for regulatory reform; payday advocates say the reform may kill off the industry, leaving borrowers in the lurch.
Advance America will work with you to establish payment arrangements. And we’re committed to collecting past due due in a professional, fair and lawful manner. We do not report to credit agencies.
DUBNER: Well, here’s what it looks like, at least, the puzzle, which is that repeat rollovers – which represents a relatively small number of the borrowers and are a problem for those borrowers – but it sounds like though those repeat rollovers are the source of a lot of the lender’s profits. So, if you were to eliminate the big problem from the consumer’s side, would not that remove the profit from the lender’s side, maybe kill the industry?
One big advice PEOPLE !! Try to avoid giving out your personal information. Avoid any suspicious telemarketing calls (they get your info) or sign any document at your doorstep … This decade is FULL of scammers … so DO NOT get cheated!
Stacy – do not pay anything unless you’re sure it’s a legitimate debt. Under the FDCPA, collectors are legally obliged to provide proof of the debt. Having said this, within 5 days of contacting you by phone, they must send you a notification of their attempt to collect. In that notice, they have to inform you of your right to have the validated debt. You have thirty days to do this and it must be done in writing. If they can not validate the debt, you can not legally collect. With that said, we strongly encourage you to read through the following two resources, at least make sure you know your rights and take the appropriate steps forward:
DEYOUNG: Studies that have looked at this have found that once you control for the demographics and income levels in these areas and these communities, the racial characteristics no longer drive the location decisions. As you can expect, business people do not care what color their customers are, as long as their money’s green.
Cost of a payday loan. Many state laws set a maximum amount for payday loan fees ranging from $ 10 to $ 30 for every $ 100 borrowed. A typical two-week payday loan with $ 15 per $ 100 fee equates to an annual percentage rate (APR) of about 400 percent. By comparison, APRs on credit cards can range from about 12 percent to about 30 percent. In many states that allow payday lending, the cost of the loan, fees, and the maximum loan amount are capped.
Christy – Do not panic. It sounds like you’re talking with a scammer. Please read this article. Do not send them a prepaid card. If it was a legitimate collection agency they would allow you to send a check. They want a prepaid card because it can not be traced. And once you pay them something, they will never leave you alone.

Well today I got a new phone call from a firm firm stating that I was going to be charged with theft by deception of a financial institution if I did not pay, I said I was waiting on the papers to be served to me and I would be happy to address this matter in court. The lady
This new collection agency calls itself Robert Anderson Associates (ph: (844-260-5843) and they have purchased the old debt and claim that I now owe $ 2,300 for a loan that was originally $ 300 and paid down to $ 150. The man said that They would accept $ 311 today only. “Cindy” called back and said the same thing, threatening me with legal action and wage garnishment. When I told her that I wanted to get legal advice, she hung up.
I just got a call from a friend friend stating someone called me from an arbitration placeor something. She gave me the name and name of the person. Apparently they told my friend that I had to contact them before the end of business tomorrow or they are going to suspend my license and have money garnished from my checks. One big problem is a drive for a company so without my license I would not be working. This is threatening my job life and family. They were really rude. I did call the number and I left a message for them to call me back. I suspect this is a scam because I got married a little over a year ago. And they have my social security number and my name name and they called my friend. I suspect it is a scare tactic from a loan called security finance. But I did not hear from them since a month before I got married. I’m looking into this before I give them any info at all
