Company called my work, saying that I was going to get served in the afternoon at my job for my arrest due to the fact that I had committed fraud with a payday loan. They asked to speak to my manager as well so that they could notify them of my arrest. 

The company name that was given to me was not found in the internet when I researched further also they said that if I agreed to make payments then they will stop the proceedings.

i called my atty and was told that this was not legal for these companies to call you at work and harass you.

I called and reported them to the State of NY State Atty Office at 585-546-7430

#2 Consumer Comment

This is a Fake Collection Scam -

AUTHOR: FloridaNative - ()

You didn't find the name anywhere because these scammers change names all the time. They "borrow" someone else's name or some company name to make the collection sound legitimate. It's not, its a scam just like you thought. You can see the various types of scams on the FTC(dot)gov website to recognize the tricks.

Here is what the Federal Trade Commission says about the Fake Debt Collectors scam:

Fake Debt Collectors

 

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation's consumer protection agency, is warning consumers to be on the alert for scam artists posing as debt collectors. It may be hard to tell the difference between a legitimate debt collector and a fake one. Sometimes a fake collector may even have some of your personal information, like a bank account number. A caller may be a fake debt collector if he:

  • is seeking payment on a debt for a loan you do not recognize;
  • refuses to give you a mailing address or phone number;
  • asks you for personal financial or sensitive information; or
  • exerts high pressure to try to scare you into paying, such as threatening to have you arrested or to report you to a law enforcement agency.

If you think that a caller may be a fake debt collector:

  • Ask the caller for his name, company, street address, and telephone number. Tell the caller that you refuse to discuss any debt until you get a written "validation notice." The notice must include the amount of the debt, the name of the creditor you owe, and your rights under the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

    If a caller refuses to give you all of this information, do not pay! Paying a fake debt collector will not always make them go away. They may make up another debt to try to get more money from you.

  • Stop speaking with the caller. If you have the caller's address, send a letter demanding that the caller stop contacting you, and keep a copy for your files. By law, real debt collectors must stop calling you if you ask them to in writing.
  • Do not give the caller personal financial or other sensitive information. Never give out or confirm personal financial or other sensitive information like your bank account, credit card, or Social Security number unless you know whom you're dealing with. Scam artists, like fake debt collectors, can use your information to commit identity theft – charging your existing credit cards, opening new credit card, checking, or savings accounts, writing fraudulent checks, or taking out loans in your name.
  • Contact your creditor. If the debt is legitimate – but you think the collector may not be – contact your creditor about the calls. Share the information you have about the suspicious calls and find out who, if anyone, the creditor has authorized to collect the debt.
  • Report the call. Contact the FTC and your state Attorney General's office with information about suspicious callers. Many states have their own debt collection laws in addition to the federal FDCPA. Your Attorney General's office can help you determine your rights under your state's law
