Good morning!!!
I received a voicemail from both of these numbers...one on Monday and then one just last night. I call them and I get Bass & Assoc. and also, Jackson Phillips, I don't want to put them off if they are legit, but I want to get my research first. Does anyone know anything about them? Please let me know. I have been burned in the past by Anthony Galloway, so I just want to double check from now on. Thank you all very much!!

Btw....why do they all end in "& Associates"?




"Btw....why do they all end in "& Associates"? "

They like to think it is intimidating, especially if it alludes to a law firm.

Send them DV letters, and seperate letters restricting communication to mail only. Make sure you send them CMRRR.

"I don't want to put them off if they are legit, but I want to get my research first."
I'm sure they've collected their fair share of bogus debts, but I've read that both of these companies love to use bogus tactics when attempting to collect. Make sure you never give them banking info, either (pay via money order/cashier's check).

I am warning my readers of an online payday loan company and their so-called collection agency. The name of the collection company, which is based in Jacksonville, Florida, is BASS AND ASSOCIATES. This is not to be confused with the legitimate Bass and Associates. The company I am speaking of stole the name of two real companies located in Arizona, Iowa and Nebraska. You can not find the company I am writing about, through the Internet. Allow me to explain why the fake company are crooks. A friend of mine was short of cash a few months ago, so she applied for an online loan with a company calling themselves; ARROWHEAD INVESTMENTS, another company which can not be located on the web. They deposited the amount into her checking account. Over a short period of time, the loan was repaid, using a method allowing for the loan company to withdraw the amount owed. However, and this is where it gets crooked, the loan company continued to withdraw money, without authorization. Pretty soon, the only option, which the bank informed her of, was to close the account all together, to cease anymore stealing of her money. She thought that it was over at last. It wasn't quite over, since she received a call recently, at her work from Kelly, an employee of BASS AND ASSOCIATES, the fake company. This Kelly, who lacks a last name, went on to state that they were filing motions in a court of law, and that she better get an attorney, and that she will be arrested due to committing bank fraud, check fraud and an array of other white collar crimes, unless of course, she wire money within the hour to their account. I received a frantic, tearful call from my friend, relaying what was told to her. She left work early, in tears and in complete anguish. I personally called this company back to investigate their claims and to have them restate the ramifications which they stated to her. The 'boss', DAVID JACOBS, refused to repeat their threats to me. I then asked for their fax number so that I can send them a letter stating to never contact my friend again, unless it is through a mediation organization. This Mr. Jacobs, refused to share their contact information. During the conversation, he referred to me as a moron. Very professional? No way. So, today, I contacted the Florida Attorney Generals Office and shared with them the actions of BASS AND ASSOCIATES. I was informed by the A.G. office, that this particular company is already under investigation. If anyone is interested in calling this company, perhaps to just ask how the weather is in Jacksonville, the number is as follows: 1-877-281-2220. Also, ask for Mr. Jacobs or Kelly.I ask all readers to call at least once, and tell them how you read all about them on my site. If you have dealt with this company also, let me know. I am not a friend of organizations who intimidate or harass hard working people. If you have information to add to this story, let me know, even your own dealings with certain collection agencies. Your thoughts?
P.S. DAVID JACOBS, you are a loser who will one day get what is legally coming to you, and I will see that it happens. It won't matter how many times you change the name of your company, or that you know anyone from Mt. Laurel, New Jersey. I told Mr. Jacobs to Google my name, and so far, he has had my name Googled four times from New Jersey. I am recording the Internet Address, which is: 70.91.149. I imagine that these crooks use a router to throw people off of their trail. Trust me, the Banking and commerce regulators and Attorney Generals from two states are involved with this case. You crook.

Information on this 'company':
Bass and Associates (name stolen from a real company in Arizona, Iowa and Nebraska, not legitimate name)
Names given during calls: David Jacobs,Kelly, no last name given, and Paul Rodriguez (may also be alias names)
Known phone number: 1-877-281-2220 (Phone number may also change, for concealing and relocating purposes, well used practice of crooked companies)
David Jacobs mobile phone: 1-904-982-0091 (This number is on his answering machine voice mail)

Physical address of crooks, given to me by Florida Attorney Generals Office:
314 West 44th
Jacksonville, Florida 32208 (This address is the one on file in the state of Florida, subject to change, I'm sure.)

That is great to know! I will be sure to send them a letter and also report them to the AG. I am so glad that I read all of that before calling them back and/or sending any money. Are they at all affiliated with this Jackson, Phillips?

It appears so. I've seen multiple posts on this board that seem to link the two.
