I have been getting calls from different men with very strong indian accents, they say they are from some legal department and that there is a lawsuit against me with some very serious charges, such as theft fraud, and so on and that I could be facing jailtime. these people dont want to give any info you ask them, they tell you a case number and that they want to help you. they then tell you that you have a certain amount of time to give them a certain amount of money either by money gram or credit card. when I asked who was filing the charges they said cashnet. then they gave me a number for cash net that was bogus! they then tell you to pay a smaller amount and that it is from a payday loan that you recieved. I didnt give them any money and noone else should either! they will not give you proof of the charges. they told me that after I pay the would provide me with verification.I have done research on this and even called the police! they give me names such as Andy Taylor, Robin Williams, Arnold Whatson, and they even called my sister and said the name was Jimmy Carter. report this crime and dont give any info. Has anyone else recieved calls from these people? one tim they said they were from united paralegal...




i think it's two things.some illegal pdl's are either selling,or giving info to these places.some illegal pdl's are outsourcing collections to these places because they can threaten like they do without ramifications.either way it is sickening to think good people are being victimized by this.

In addition to filing complaints with the agencies discussed above, and notifying your local police department, file a report with the US Postal Inspection Service. This is not some consumer-help agency. This is a real, federal law enforcement agency, complete witrh badges and guns. The Postal Inmspectors have jurisdiction over a wide range of federal laws involving the mail. They have sharp teeth, and they aren't in the least shy about using them.

I got a call from 800-670-2137. Said they were collecting on a pay day loan I had 4 years ago. Called my work repeatedly....when a cp-worker said I was not here "Frank" said I know she is you B$@tch! She hung up and he called again and again. Finally I called back and they wouldnt give me an address or anything. It was a total scam...jut wanted a credit card or bank account #. I'm not a fool. The problem I had was the guy basically said until I give him some money he will just call over and over and over until I get fired. It was blackmail. The police said all I could do is file a harrasment charge. There must be more I can do?? These people somehow have my personal info!!

I got a weird call from someone with a heavy accent but who said their name was Alan O'Connor claiming I had borrowed $150 online and making all kinds of threats. I never took out a pay day loan online! He was insisting I gave the name of an attorney but would not send me anything directly. Said he was out of California, representing Cal Smith attorneys for paydaythree.com. Anyone else run across them?

Same thing has been happening to me. They call and say I owe money for a payday loan and that I will get taken into custody if i dont pay. They call from a california number. They said I owed some company, so I went and looked up the company online and called them myself. The guy at the actual payday company said they had no records under my name and come to find out, you cant even get a loan threw there company unless you live in Utah, which I dont. He told me it was a scam and lots of people had been calling to ask what was going on. They call me all the time and have started calling my work. If I tell them to stop calling, they call even more, like 5-10 times within minutes.

you cant just hang up on them because they just keep calling back. It makes for a real uncomforatble situation at work. I call them everyday now just to harrass them. They are in India not in CA. They use a ficticious address which is actually a Mailboxes etc address. They have admitted to me several times they dont use their real names because they are told to use fake names by their employer. They are really pretty dumb and try to use intimidation to get money out of you. Just call their bluff then keep calling them back repeatedly and they will stop.
