American Legal Services Sean Michael, Mike Anderson They said I could go to jail for 6 months Brooklynn, New York
*Consumer Suggestion: For future reference
I proceeded to call them back and he told me that I was being sued for a $495 bill to someone in New York and that if I didnt pay them today then the amount would go up to $3000+. I informed him I had no money and no way to make it to New York and he told me that if I didnt show up in the Superior Court in Brooklynn, New York on Friday then a sheriff from my county would come and arrest me and extradite me to New York where I would go to jail for 6 months. He then informed I would be served papers at my address in 2 hours.
As soon as I got home I looked American Legal Services up online and found out that it was a scam. Just to make absolutely sure I went to my local police department and asked them about this and to see if they had recieved any faxed papers and they said they hadnt. I had no court papers waiting to be served.
This whole thing was really unsettling to me because I have a clean record and never want to go to jail. Im still concerned because they do have my social security number and address. Im just glad I didnt fall for their scam.
