I just had a lady call with a very thick accent and I couldn't even understand her name and it was VERY time sensitive. She said that tomorrow evening at 11 p.m. a police officer was coming to my house to pick me up and take me to jail. She told me that i was being charged with 3 felony accounts, Check fraud, violation of federal banking violations, and theft. She said she needed my attorney's information so she could forward my case file to them. When I told her I didn't understand what this was concerning, and I didn't have an attorney, she kept telling me "mam, I don't want your money I cannot help you."When I started freaking out on her, she hung up on me.
My fiance then called her back wanting to know what exactly was going on she told him the same thing. He then proceeded to ask to speak with her supervisor, she put him on hold and then hung up on him. As he was talking to her I immediately jumped online to see their web site because I never remember taking out any cash loans or anything from them, I saw that the report on this web site and my absolute terror turned into absolute anger.
I called homeland security as instructed to do so on the original report and spoke with an agent. He said that he had just gotten off the phone with a guy in Seattle and that this was a wide spread panic.
All I can say, is that if you or someone you know has received a call like this, please call homeland security immediately.
Apparently, these guys have several different numbers that they have been calling from, the number they called me from was, 714-409-0250.
This is a very serious matter, according to the agent at HLS that I spoke with, he said there are 3 different credit unions they are getting your complete information from, one of them being equifax. PLEASE DO NOT give any personal information over the internet or VIA email.
