I am new here. I received 6 calls back to back yesterday from "Officer Roy" who refused to say what company he was with.
A few minutes later a coworker contacted me saying that an Officer Roy called him saying that I was named in a lawsuit and used him as a reference. They said the name of the company was FID in Florida. I have never met this coworker before either.
Soon, another coworker is contacted by the same guy. And the same thing was said.
They never called my extension back. Today, the person above my boss called me into a meeting because an executive received a voicemail from "Roy Martin" aka "Officer Roy" saying that I was named in a lawsuit and that he would be sued with me since he is named in there as well.
This is embarrassing and slanderous. I don't know what to do. The number that they left on the executive's voicemail is 888-296-4293 and when the manager called they said the company is US Cash Advance. I am in Illinois.
I called them back and told them not to call me at work. I gave them my attorney's name (a well known consumer attorney that sues payday lenders), they didn't take down the number. I told them that they broke the law by contacting third parties without my permission and that they need to contact me in writing.
PLEASE HELP! I don't want to be embarrassed and harrassed at this job anymore. I told my manager it was a scam so now they are sending out an email to EVERYONE to ignore the calls. But my name is still being slandered.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff 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.
