This is a variation on the calls about pay day loans that you can find on you tube, check out Randall and the Mad Indians, Butch Driveshaft, etc. There are several. I searched the web after I got the email below; however, it turns out that this is not new either, just new to me. I found info as far back as 2007. These Indians are relentless, pay day loan scam, microsoft scam, and now pay down loan scam by email. You can always tell it is a scam. Last line in my letter is UNITED STATES OF ATTORNEY. They do not understand English well, written or verbal (as evidenced by their incorrect grammar on phone and on paper). Scam is the same, phone numbers and debt amt may be different but scam is the same. A copy of the letter I found in my email is below.
