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 applied for a couple of payday loans online. Now I keep receiving these calls from men with heavy indian accents telling me I am going to jail. luckily, I know a little about law. so once I tell them i need their information to give to my attorney they hang up. the calls stopped until today. received another one and he hung up after I told him my attorney will handle everything and that i needed his information to pass on. Plus I told him I work with attorneys. he immediately hung up but what scares me is that he had my ssn and knew the name of my bank. even though the cash advances I had gotten before were not with this bank. This is scary.

My wife, known as Mrs T has been harrassed for the second time in 8 months from an gentlemen with a strong Indian accent stating he is with a local state attorneys office (James Planker) that doeasn't exist. Upon doing a reversed phone search comes from southern california number 209-856-6412 and states the name of Daniels. Has the last 4 digits of her Soc Sec but assume easy to access. Suggest calling that number repeatedly.

Ah yes I too have been getting calls. A while back I applied for a payday loan online through one of those loan finders. I got a call today from a guy who says he is from the lawfirm of Patrick and Associates. At first i let him leave a message.Heavy Indian Accent says: " Hello this message is intended for "MY NAME". Now "my name", do not disregard this message. This is a very time sensitive matter. You can reach me "his name" at 818-538-9561. Again 818-538-9561.Now "my Name", If I do not hear from you or your attorney all I can do is wish you good luck as the situation unfolds upon you. Good Bye." The number he called from registered as 0000 sometimes and 916-395-0000 the other times. I was called 11 times today. The number is a disconnected number so i called the 818-538-9561 number and talked to an Indian guy. He said his client is American Payday and I owe them $800. He said if I do not pay then by Monday I would get a subpoena and if I was found guilty I would end up paying "8 and a half thousand dollars". I told himI did not take out a loan and iI have never been approved for a loan that high and it was bogus. He said i may then be victim of identity theft and to get an attorney. I said I could not afford one and he put me on hold to talk to his "Lead Attorney'. On getting back the amount suddenly dropped to $600. I told him I think he is a scammer and he got mad. He calmed down and i told him I wanted it in writing. He said he could not do that and I will be going to court. I told him he had to show something in writing and he said he could not do that. He had my current address (I just moved to the address 4 mos ago), my email, my phone, and my Social Security Number. He repeated it to me over the phone lol.

How can we be sure of a Payday loan company when we apply for such loans off-line?

I was called by the same idiots today. I told them to repeat my personal information. And they read back something that was entirely wrong. They had my SSN right all but the last 4 digits. My address was right except for the state. And my banking account number was right except the last 4 digits. I "supposedly" took out a loan for $200.oo. And I was being sued for $750.oo. The message they left me, was left by a female that I couldn't even understand. They do that so you can call them back. Told them I reported a fraud claim with the FTC & BBB. They got very aggravated and went off on me. They told me I was a peanut and told me to go to hell. And then they hung up. I then called back to 818-538-9561 and then got a message. They called back. The number came up 0000. I was then speaking to "RICHARD". And told them to send all the information. They told me they couldn't do that because it was against "Company Policies". Yeah right!!. Then also told me "May God have mercy on your soul" lmao. I just laughed and told them to go back to India. Anyhoo, these whack jobs need to be stopped.

There are a lot of outsourcing companies operating outside the U.S. today. Some of them are not following any legal guidelines at all. You may also come across a couple of them who're following our state specific guidelines and are registered with the federal govt. However, such companies are less in number. These are the only tele-sales companies who have your correct data within their system.

I just got a missed call from 916-395-0000. I see it's a scam and won't bother calling back. They did not leave a message.


Do these people ever do credit inquiries? Can they if they're illegal and out of the country? I'm just curious if a fraud alert/security freeze would be a good idea?
