Earlier today a 1-866-808-1188 number with a womaning saying she is from National Check Restituion Services called my family to say they were giving a formal call to notify me that an attorney would soon be sending me a court summons due to a bounced check. I am in the process of digging myself out of the payday loan hole, I have closed my bank account and sent letters to the companies whom I owe. Im assuming these people are a payday loan collector as I dont owe anyone else any unpaid debts. When I called the number back it went to a voicemail calling themselves ACD group. Ive googled NCRS, National Check Restituion Services and ACD Group but get nothing. When googling the 866 number Ive found a few posts of people saying they are just a scare tactic collection agency, but one person also said they were actually sued (not sure whether to believe that or not, perhaps it was a post from someone at the company to scare?)
Im just wondering if anyone else has heard of these people as Im having trouble finding anything about them. I appreciate any help.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the pay off amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
