In April of 2000, Christopher Walken hosted Saturday Night Live. During the show, he would insist that Will Ferrell add “more cowbell” to Blue Oyster Cult’s “Do not Fear” the Reaper “; Before that, however, he made an appearance in one of the SNL’s satirical ads. Clad in yellow-sweater and perched next to Ana Gasteyer before a roaring fire-and speaking in a classically Walkenan growl-the actor engaged in a bit of confession: “In a marriage,” he intoned, the fire crackling behind him, “Intimacy is important. Erectile dysfunction is a thief. It takes away something very precious. “Walken went on to announce that he and his fictional wife had discovered, together, the virtues of Viagra. “It worked,” he said, as Gasteyer smirked and the fire crackled and easy listening music played in the background. He paused. “It worked a lot.”
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
This person called my job and blocked their number. He left me a message saying his name is Michael Hunter and that he is the senior locator for the processing and summons division for the state of Florida. He said I needed to contact my case worker, Mr. Moss immediately about 2 fraud charges against me for writing bad checks and that need to serve me with a warrant. I did not call them back and did google search on this and saw it’s some kind of a scam. They have also called my job, but we have a call center who would not put the call through. He said I needed to call 1-888-978-4319 extension 147 and that my case number is 431-923
I suppose you are just reporting this and not thinking about sending them money – at least I hope so! If you talk with them, send them a written notice of the debt by mail as required by law. But it sounds like it’s a scam and they will not.
I’ve been calling for two months now that we’re going to sue me on 300 dollar case but was charging me 9000 for checking fraud missing on payments so they are tired and are going to serve me at my job and pick me up on this charge that have been brught before me to have never got a check book before online web site is making these aligation against me
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.
Mind you, no one ever asked me for updated information or my address … their gums just continued to flap about how I was going to be served a crime sum at an address I have not lived at for 8 years.
If these are legitimate collectors then they will stop calling at work once they are instructed by you to do so. That’s federal law
My husband got a call from BG capital they said they were in New York but who really knows. The gentleman sd he was an investigator w
I received a call from a “courier service” in my county. The number was restricted. He said he had legal papers to deliver to me and unless I called 877-454-4291, they wold be delivered today between 2 & 4. I must be available at my home or place of employment. How will they know where to go? LOL !!! I called the number but did not talk to anyone. That phone was answered ADR Arbitration. Has anyone ever heard of them?
I’ve been getting phone messages from a place that calls themselves “fraud division” with a Nebraska number claiming that it had taken out a loan in 2013 (which I have not), they claim that if I did not come up with 1169.50 of which I had to pay half today that they were going to forward the
, unless you have to show up and prove it.
Jason – It absolutely sounds like the classic overseas payday loan scam. Do not send them a penny. Remember, in the US a debt collector is required to send notification of the debt to you in writing. If he does not, he’s breaking the law. Report these guys to the FTC and your state attorney general.
ok heres how this works i did it for about a few years ago first off all the debt is real debt. Ok now heres where the rest becomes illegal to speak or at least walk that thin line in my eyes. its real debt that the people owed but for these companies by the time they got it its OVER the 7 year statute of limitations for collections so they hit hard and fast before you catch on. now when you call john or mary lets say they have professional closers who guess what are now john or mary each one of us gets our list of people going to call and get my company buys by the bAZILLION from the credit card companies medical collection agencies etc for pennies the month i worked there they had a million $$$ month so theres a lot of uninformed people out there. anyways we get their debt info then credit report etc and we search them before we call had my own code to run backgrounds reverse phone etc that way we sound legit we then spoof your sheriff or court house number threaten jail and arrest at your work etc unless you call john or mary since we are all either john or mary they never know for pay for us we had a number like john 1 john 2 or mary 1 mary 2 etc. i can go on and on the gist lol my conscience got the best of me i had to quit p.s. if this happens again just laugh at them and ask them what time breakfast you need a vacation and club med was booked solid so jail will do lol theyll move to the next victim they just keep hounding and bullying if you look weak and they think youll pay. good luck
I just had my first run with one of these “companies.” I immediately knew that it was gibberish but decided to play along. They were immediately taken by the fact I have a British accent but continue their charade. I initially spoke with a woman and the number was 0000. Typically I do not pick up these strange numbers as I assume it’s some sort of scam but I had a itch. She picked up said something and immediately handed the phone over to another counterpart. He of course made claims to a loan I took out in 2008, I believe. Along with fraud check and two other false claims. I immediately said that I was only 16 than though he continued the pressure. Statements of we sent you multiple EMAILS, you’ll receive a summon, etc. After he continued to talk about me I said in a very naive way “He said in his absurdly thick accent” of course. “I than yelled” you such a person I I was a student of law and the likeliness of convincing me of any truth was impossible. “He continued to press me and I slyly said a remark in Spanish than hung up. The fact that I was 16 in said year and British alone should have made him end the call, very foolish tactic. They called me BACK RIGHT AFTER AS WELL. I can also complain of the heavy background noise, completely spineless people praying on Americans suffering through enough of a crisis as is. If I receive another call I will take some of these actions to try and help in ceasing this callous behavior.
The payday industry, and some political allies, argue that the CFPB is trying to deny credit to people who really need it. Now, it’s not surprising you that the payday industry does not want this kind of government regulation. Nor should it surprise you that a government agency called the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is trying to regulate an industry like the payday industry.
I’m really scared. We got this phone call from this legal processing center accusing us the 2 charges with the state and both of them are felonies according to anyone who said on the phone. That we will be thrown to jail for 85 months if we do not take care of the money … It was for a check 570 and now all the fees added up to 970 and how our case was turned to the state that is why they they call us … that they can issue a warrant for arrest if we do not care of the money …
I get them all the time too. Everything goes to voice mail If I do not know what I’m saying, I do not know what I’m saying.
Tami – what’s wrong with me is talking about “bad checks” – not about the fact that you have a debt. This makes me think they’re going to tell you that you’re going to be arrested for checking fraud if you do not pay. Again, ask them to send you a written notice of the debt required by the federal law – the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
Counselors and Lawyers with Nationwide business operations. They called me multiple times alleging that my mother owed a $ 2,000 debt for writing bad checks. They said that the party wanted to prosecute and provided a fake address and social security number that was supposedly my mother’s. They did not provide any website, no bar number and
If you want time extension until Feb 3rd 2012, then you have to pay $ 150 as time extension charge, so in total you have to pay $ 907.62. Please provide card details for stopping your case file for time extension
DURBAN, South Africa – Ronald Louw was a human-lawyer lawyer and professor at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, the South African province, which is one of the most affected areas of the world, so he must have known about the dangers of the virus. In April 2005, he was taking care of his mother, who had been diagnosed with cancer, when he realized he had a cough that would not go away. He went to a doctor who treated him with antibiotics.
The script and said that it was no longer there because it was now a federal obligation to pay them. My favorite part of the call was to be the ending …. “You’re only 24 right, so you do not know a lot about this or how bad this will affect you in the long run.” I called the Sheriff’s office and District Attorney’s office and filed a claim. Even the sheriff’s office said that they have had people call them because they have had phone calls telling them that there is a
I am curious as to what the credit reporting companies plan to do about reporting these animals do! I can not buy a house right now because of a “loan” that I did not take that is being reported on my credit! This has to stop. They can not just mess with people like this. I had to hire an attorney!
I got online immediately to look in my email for said correspondence. I found an email that I had initiated requesting information on how
Not having the money to pay a debt is not a crime. It sounds like you’re dealing with scammers. The advice I gave in the articles below to your situation. Start with step # 1 and insist they email your written statement of the debt that is required by federal law. (Do not be intimidated by the fact that they have a lot of information about you – that’s very common with payday loans.)
I’m getting calls often, different numbers, started about a week ago.It is scary, and upsetting.Latest is from 1-718-841-6480.Thaey call work, threatens to file charges against me, I will be arrested if I don i pay.A guy tried to get me $ 560 immediately.I didn’t.Help
In a high-education system that is often divided between two and four-year colleges and further segregated between elite and nonelite institutions, it’s not often that a college college is mentioned in the same breath as the Ivy League campus. Nor is a two-year college as a training ground for jobs in the so-called creative economy, which includes industries such as design, fashion, and computer gaming that typically require bachelor degrees.
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.
told me that this has already been passed that and my salary would be garnished. Stating “they have already contacted your employer and we have their tax identification number.” When asked about the “debt” they kept referring to not showing up on my credit report; I was told that it was on there and she was looking at it right now. Once I said that I was monitoring my credit, she flipped

WERTH: So, what did Fusaro do when he set up a randomzed control trial where he gave a group of borrowers a traditional high-interest-rate payday loan and then gave another group of borrowers no interest rates on their loans and then he compared the Two and he found out that both groups were just as likely to roll over their loans again. And we should say, again, the research was financed by CCRF.
That makes plenty of sense in theory. Payday lending in its most unfettered form seems to be ideal for neither consumers nor lenders. As Luigi Zingales, professor at the University of Chicago, told a group of finance professionals in a speech speech last year, “The effective outcome can not be achieved without mandatory regulation.” One controversy is whether the office, in its zeal to protect
numbers online and it looks they dont exist. I’m trying to report them before someone else becomes a victim.
saying that I was paying in full etc. and then after I paid in full, I called the company that they said I had the loan with and they advised me that my loan was already paid in full a few months ago and said that the collectors were not associated with them. Boy, did I learn my lesson. What they are doing is taking your personal information from any possible attempt to take out a payday loan or if you have taken out a loan sometime. New trick is a company called FUNDEDPAYDAY.COM took an ACH payment out of the bank account for $ 14.95 and said that I filled out paper work asking them to find me payday loan for this fee. Unbelieveable, why would anyone pay a fee for someone to find them a loan, when we all know that we can get it for free. The next time you get any calls like this, do your homework and take down all info that you can from them. Tell them you want a copy of the original loan paper and when you take out the loan, the amount of the loan, the claim number etc … WE ARE HARD WORKING PEOPLE AND WE NEED TO START FIGHTING BACK.
I was contacted by these people
I was just on creditkarma last night and woke up to a voicemail from someone telling me to call them back or it would result in a warrant for my arrest. They told me I had 1400 and they would settle for 700 they had my personal info including ss #. They said I had till 1pm this same day to pay. I called the courts in Illinois and they did not know anything about it. I called the company back and they were aggressive and yelled saying they were submitting it early now do not call us ever again. Now you will get arrested by cook county Illinois but I’m a Wisconsin resident.
Do not panic. You have the right under the federal law to request the verification of the debt and the debt collector must provide it. They also must provide you with their contact information if you request it. So next time they call, ask for their mailing address. If they do not give it to you then they are either a. a scam or b. a rogue collector who is breaking the law.
