Just received a voicemail from "Michael Carter" Supervisor of NY State Processes and Summons with an order to appear in front of judge for financial fraud but to first call his client to avoid that. So I called the number he left me 1-888-995-5804 ext 122 and the same guy answered. I told him I knew it was a scam and I know how the law works. I asked who I owed money too and he couldn't tell me. He said if I knew the law I would work with him and not against him or the authorities will be at my place of employment or residence and then it will be too late. I also found out he called my boss so I told him its against federal collection practices to do that and he started laughing and telling me he was going to keep calling my work then. I talked to my boss and he said not to worry. He will take care of mr carter. I just need reassurance that its a scam and not to worry. I'm going to file a complaint with the AG and FTC but all I have is their name Landmark and the above phone number. Any words or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
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.
