On May 29th 2009 I received a message on my voicemail from an "Allan Parker" saying that immediately after receiving there message I or my attorney needed to call him back at 408-625-4862 if they didnt hear from me in a timely manner, the "Good Luck to me and they couldnt help me! So not knowing what it was about i called back and the woman who answered asked me for my phone # to look up my account, she then transfered me to "Mike Anderson"
He immediately stared asking questions for mr to verify who i was, He then told me that i was being charged with, check fraud and fraud over state lines else i dont remember, when i told him i didnt know what he was talking about he said "You didnt know anything about this?" I said "No" he started saying " OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD" then preceeded to read me an affidavit and told me not to say anything until he was done reading and then he would answer my questions, I was told I was being sued by "Fast Cash Int'l for a loan i had received from them and when they tried to debit my acct for repayment it was declined, and that my bank info was no good!
When he was done reading i asked who i owed and he kept saying Fast Cash International, I told him i never got a loan from this company or had anything deposited into my accout from them and he told me " Your a smart woman, u know u owe the money< If you want to lie we will see u in court" and then immediately hung up on me!
I called back and asked why they hung up he asked me if i wanted to take care of it? I said if i owed money i wanted to get it taken care of, so he said he contact his client (Fast Cash Int'l) and see what they would accept, After about 5 mins he came back and tol me that he had convinced thenm to accept my payment and there condition was that i had to write a letter of apology to them and pay the entire balance of $705.58 today, and they are not a collection agency so no payment arrangements could be made, Unfortunately being scared with the prospect of jail i gave them i debit card # and they agreed to wait til i called them back and had the $ in the account to debit it! They also told me i had 30 mins to send the letter of apology to them!
After i got off the phone I went to family and they thought it sounded fishy so we did some investigating and found out this is all a SCAM, Thank god for this website, all of these stories are almost word for word what i went through, So after they didnt receive my letter they called me AGAIN and by this time i was at the police station filing a report, i told them i knew this was a scam and they could take me to court, they said i called them scammers and the would ad that to my charges and they would see me in court!
I had to call my bank and freeze my account so they wont get any money! What a hassel, But i am very happy that i listened when told to look into it more before paying!!! If anyone gets calls like this definitely investigate before you pay, its a hard lesson to learn!!
