I first was able to trace the calls from the island of St. Lucia as a British Commonwealth. I contacted the government of St. Lucia informing them of the misleading actions taken by this company. It seemed to me that St. Lucia would like to know this information since many of its economy is American tourists. St. Lucia investigated and shut down its operation as a call center on their island.
If you look back at all the complaints you will notice they are all women. They were able to get our information from public tax records and credit reports. They have more information on us than we realize. They target women in lower tax brackets. This target profile has not been 100% confirmed so I apologize to those who are not.
To this date I have had to close three seperate bank account including Federal Credit Unions and cease any banking with these credit unions. The credit unions took all my research and said they were going to proceed on with investigations. My money was returned from the bank not the fraudulent company.
What gets me is that they had my bank name and account number when they called me. After closing accounts and putting security on my credit report is when they continued to call me to get the new information which of course at this point I was well aware of their scam.
It has been a year now of still receiving harrassing phone calls saying they are from different US government agencies as well as the different banks and credit unions I had accounts with. I have not been able to put a block on the phone calls because they come in different numbers each time. I cannot change my phone number without causing mass confusion.
I have recorded many of their calls to prove the way they work and their lies of who they are. After a year of the calls I have now been able to play dumb on the phone and ask questions to prove even more of their guilt on the recorded phone call.
I'm looking into what can get a class action law suit started and how US Code can act upon a company based in another country. I haven't yet found the answers...not the field of law I usually work in but determined to find the answer and get this company shut down for good. I don't believe we can act on it as a criminal lawsuit but I would settle for civil. I do not expect any monetary settlement because I know it would be slim. I just want it to stop and for it to no longer hurt US citizens.
I do understand that there has been a lawsuit against this company in North Dakota. I would love to be in touch with ND's Attorney General on how they were able to indict. I would be more than willing to take the step in beginning the contact list of the various counties & states from which victims reside.
ALL VICTIMS: Go to your local police department and file a report. They may not be able to do anything about it now but you will not only be standing up for yourself but for all other US Citizens whom are being taken advantage of by this company. Sooner or later it will all come back to them and you can feel good to know you took a step towards ending this. Reporting it to BBB is for informational use only. It does help in getting the information out though. Send reports to United States General Services Administration's Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance, United States Department of Health and Human Services (under the Grants Department) and to various National Fraud associations.
Ensure that your phone number is on the Do Not Call list.
