I got a call from this number, stating that it was a notification of a judgement against me. He stated his name, Anthony James, but did not state the company name. He also included my name, address and SSN in the voicemail. Sounded professional, but haven't been able to find out who its from or what they would be calling about? I have taken out payday loans, and I owe one of them back on about $600. Do payday loan lenders seek paybacks through judgements? I live in California, the call came from Delaware.

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.
