First IRS Legal Department What do consumers say about them?

member profile picture

These guys are a bunch of ass clowns. First they called me on Tues and told me my outstanding payday loans (Both of them are illegal in California by the way) are a class C felony. Then he says he sent notice to my house on 1/25. That was last week. I tried to call them back and get an address where I can send a debt validation letter and the I kept getting hung up on and answering machines with no calls back. Then when I did get a live person the guy didnt even know what a debt validation letter was. LOL I asked how he could be in the debt collection business and not know. He refused to give me their address until I gave him my name. WTF should I do?

that is a BS lie by an illegal collector.you never gave them a check,and an ACH debit consent isn't a check.file AG complaints against these idiots.they can't and won't have you arrested.debts if the collector is legit are civil matters not criminal ones.

unregistered guest; these people have been calling me, I don't have any payday loans out , I had one and let these people scare me to the tune of 1200 dollar for a 300.00 dollar loan that I paid off about five times, I would pay it offf and they would keep coming back saying I still owed more. I paid the 1200.00 to First IRS and then told them not to call me again. I didn't hear from the for a long time but have popped themeselves up again. Well they won't get another dime out of me. I am going to call the Attorney General's office.

that is a scare tactic.they can't reproduce a check.it has to be one of yours.no it's not legal for them to threaten that.file an AG complaint,and send them a DV letter certified mail return receipt.do not pay this scam artist.

a couple of points here.

1)this woman is breaking the law talking to you like that.
2)you have the absolute right to get something in writing from these cretins.
3)the old "refusal to pay"line is one scummy bottomfeeding scams use to extort money.
4)never pay anybody like this without details in writing,and never give them sensitive info like a cc or bank acct #.they get money orders or nothing.that is also your right as well.
5)send the DV letters knowing that if the wicked witch of the west calls after that.you can sue them.they however being a bottomfeeding scam can't do the same.

there you have it.send the letter certified mail return receipt,and watch them either dissapear,or you sue them.

I got a letter from the Lighthouse Recovery Associates and since then I've been getting calls from the guy claiming to be with the IRS legal department. The address to LRA on the letter is: 11551 E. Arapahoe Street, Suite 150 Centennial, CO 80112

First of all it was a payday loan and no checks were involved, when i refused to talk with him about this at work he told me that i had to talk to him, that my walmart check card declined a payment that i agreed to pay , and something to my boss about arbitration and she hung up on him. He also said that he was going to take it up with affairs in pennsylvania... What does this mean does anyone know ???
