Wow, after reading everything on this Jack Boyajian guy, I'm still trying to figure out why he has not been arrested. I mean, someone has 3 unpaid parking tickets they get nailed, this guy threatens, intimidates, illegally tries to collect bogus and fake debts, and nothing.
Anyway, he or someone in his office called my mother today asking for her to pay her hospital bill. They claimed it was from 2000. So my mother calls me saying she doesn't remember being in the hospital in 2000. I tell her not to worry anyway, because the statute of limitations has run even if it was a valid debt at one time. I also take all of the information and begin to research this character.
Come to find out as I am doing this, they call her again, but this time when she tries to get some information from them, they hang up. Then a third call, and she tells them she has an attorney and they need to call the attorney. They inform my mother that they don't have to call her attorney and that they don't like being told what to do.
I have filed a complaint with both the New Jersey Attorney General and the Virginia Attorney General (my mother lives in VA). It seems like this guy skulls the trash of businesses and finds names and numbers, then sends letters and makes phone calls telling people they need to pay up.
They have no legal authority to do anything, and if they threaten you over the phone, call the police. They cannot arrest you, only your local police or a federal agent can do that, and with a warrant. They cannot affect your credit, because they wouldn't know how to file something with the credit bureaus even if the debt was ligit. Definitely call your attorney general and lodge a complaint.
The only way to get this guy is to make enough noise to the law enforcement officials that maybe they will finally arrest him. Also, if you go to his website you will notice some interesting tid bits, not the first that it appears to be a bogus site. Try to click on any of the tabs besides his name and some woman named Karen Nations -- nothing. Same for any of his alleged locations, one of which is Connecticut where he is banned from doing business. And the best part is the testimonials.
I contacted CVS legal, and they have never hired this guy to do anything, although they couldn't confirm he was hired to work the parking lot. And who is this: "President, Condominium Board"?
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY TO THIS GUY. And do not give out any personal information. Chances are that this is some fake debt he made up. He has tried to collect on past due Verizon accounts before Verizon ever existed, he has tried to represent himself as acting on behalf of Noble Hospitals, and those are only the things that I could find in about 1 hour of searching.
My advice, just like with any bully, is to fight back.
