I received a message on my cell and at work from a Joseph stating he was trying to contact me about a check that I wrote and needed to verify some information with me for security purposes. I am not sure how to respond to this because I have not had a checking account in over a year. He sounds american and the caller id is from somewhat local area(about 1 1/2 hours away) with a call back #866-443-6985. I thought I would investigate a little before calling back since I have been having serious issues with scammers out of india harrassing me at work and on my cell and I am having troubles getting them to stop. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

If your lawyer has filed the bankruptcy, you should call FFG and give them your case number. If they contact you again even once after you have done that they are in violation of the automatic stay in the bankruptcy and you can sue them for PUNATIVE damages.

I have received the same phone calls. I did what was suggested and looked them up in the MD court system. Here are some case numbers that I found. In most it doesn't look like they were awarded much and there are not any recent cases unless they have changed their name. I don't understand all of the court abbreviations though. 050200012862003 070200024992006
0501SP042952005 050200182462006 050200008152005

Here's the link for the case search.

Should I be worried since they have actually attempted to file cases in my state?

I have been in a workout group for a major national bank for over 30 years. I got one of these phone calls, make that a total of five messages they have now left on my machine. I called back after "business hours" and their machine goes thru some strange machinations and finally says there is a "system error" and then hangs up. Scam is not the word; this is outright fraud on the general public. Ignore these buffoons; they have NO legitimate recourse to you. PS I have a credit score that is in the high 800s!

So, I got the same phone call from them abt a payday loan. I knew that I did not pay the payday loan, so assumed the debt was valid. They said that if I did not make pay arrangements that more actions would be taken. Well, I payed them the money that was owed. During this time I recieved another phone call from P&B capital saying I owe them for the same bill. I spoke with FFG during the whole time and assused me that the debt was with them. So I asked them for a letter abt verfications and they stated that they would get it out to me. (Never happened) Now they are stating that it takes 30 days after payoff to get it out to me. While on the other hand I am still getting this call fro P&B capital saying I owe them the money! I do not know what to do at this point. This all started back in May, and I never have anything from them. I know I am stupid for not getting any documention, but I knew the debt was valiade and I am trying to get my debt back on track.

ffg is simply a third party collection agency hired by creditors to pursue your debt. the majority of their debt is payday loan debt which has excruciating fees. which is why everybody calls them a scam. imagine if you got a call from somebody telling you that you owe a payday loan for triple the amount of what you borrowed? I would immediately call them a scam and hang up. bottomline is that even though these fees ,late charges etc.. are exorbitant they are real and the only way to get rid of this debt is to either settle the balance or pay the balance in full (whichever way you want it to reflect on your credit report)

Boss man is Salvatore Mazzara. Was Frontier Financial Group Inc. a mortgae co. that had its license/charter revoked. When the state of Nevada filed a cease and desist order against them for illegaly operating with out a license , they switched from Vegalo LLC to North American Asset Service LLC. Joseph does not exist, it is a more than 2 year old recording, thats used with cell phones to place the calls from all over the country so you cant trace them. Probably disposable. These guys are very sneaky, and will do any thing it takes to scare you.

The first time they called, they said they would filing charges with the DA for failure to pay a payday loan and they wanted me to set up payment arrangements with my bank card.
I asked to to send me more information about the debt such as the amount owed, paid and interest fees. The letter I received only said they were a debt collection agency and no information about the actual debt. I asked them not to call my employer anymore


I have worked in collections for years and I believe in Texas wages cannot be garnished except for taxes and child support
