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...




These people that I can not understand have just started callling me. My husband
happened to answer the phone and he is livid. They started threatening him.

They keep calling for $300.00 some odd dollars but will not give us proof that I
took out a short term loan. They said that that is agains the law to send us
proof but we are to either western union the money or out of a debit card.
I am not that stupid to give them anything unless I have proof. They call and
say they are officer so and so and the police are going to come to my door and
put me behind bars. I am going to call the better business bureau, the police,
the FBI and anyone else I can think of. This has got to stop!!!!!! If there is
anyone else out there that have received calls from these jerks please do
something about it.

If anyone can stop these people.....PLEASE DO! We called to police in our town
and they said that these people have not committed a crime so they can't do
anything. Extortion isn't a crime. They called me back and left vulger messages.
My husband is soooooo livid that he is working with the local tv station and they
seem to be very interested. They have had numberous reports of this scam.
Maybe if everyone contacted their local tv station we may at least be able to
get the word out. We have tried everything else to shut these guys down but
have come to a dead end (Except the tv station) DO NOT GIVE THESE GUYS
MONEY!!!!!!! That can't even provide proof!!!! That's all I asked them for and
I would have paid the $375.00 that they want from me. They are NASTY!!!!

I started getting these phone calls about 3 months ago, same stuff, they have the last 4 of my ss#, and my bank name but will not send anything in writing to me. If you ever bought anything on-line, then your bank name and other information is not hard to get. I spoke with an attorney about this and was advised that I should ignore the calls. Thankfully they do not have my work number so I just ignore him, he has called here as Frank Hilton, Alex Dawson, these guys are crooks.

Did you by any chance have an account at Commerce Bank? My son gets this call all the time - Hindu male- different name all the time threaten jail- court- they had all his information from his old Commerce Bank account- so far he has changed his account numbe with TD bank twice because of this. They have his address- phone number- and SS too-- Funny thing is his phone is registered on my account. I told him to change his phone numbber to get away from them. He has been recievng these calls for over a year now. I recieved a call and have never dealt with Commerce Bank - my husband answered the phone when they called me back by saying FBI- Special agent Smith - may I assist you-- they hung up and said oh crap..... Good Luck

File complaints with the FTC, BBB and your AG.

In all seriousness, these scammers are very annoying. I Just laugh and say, you got those #'s all wrong, what ever you do DO NOT confirm anything. Make them repeat the information they have to you, and notice how it changes. No cops are coming to arrest you. I have consulted several pay day lenders, talked to the managers, and they assured me they have their own in-house collection people and rarely use them. These scammers are gathering info from where ever they can get it and just hoping to hit on rube that will bite. I just laugh and say come get me.

The same thing was triedon me. The only difference was they said they deposited $300 in my bank account. The even knew my account number and bank. I finally got them to say when this was suppose to have happened. I told them not me. I checked all action with my bank and this never took place like I said. when they called again I informed them that there was never a deposit to my accoutn in the amount of $300 from Cash net and they could go somewhere. They continued to call and threaten me for a while but my response has always been the same.
