I received a letter from Boyajian Law Offices stating I owed money to a utility company (Allegheny Power) from an I address I lived at 9 years ago. I thought it was odd since I had never been contacted by any other party regarding this until now.. 9 years later.

The first thing I did was look up the law firm name on the internet since I work in a law firm myself and found tons of reports on these people and their office being a scam however, somehow, they are still able to report you to a credit agency for a false debt if you do not pay them. Someone please tell me how they are still able to operate and do this to people !

This has been investigated since 2003 and no one has been able to shut them down. I called Allegheny Power and they have never heard of Boyajian, and told me I was in good standing with them, and that I owed them nothing. When calling Boyajian Lw Offices, I asked to speak to an attorney and the man (if you'd like to call him that) that answered the phone laughed at me and told me it was like calling the White House and asking to speak to the President. I said No, it isn't. If I want to speak to someone higher than you, I should be able to.

I then asked for their local telephone number, he said they did not have one. Only a 1-800 number. Big sign there. All law offices will have a local telephone number. I then asked if he could give me the name of any attorney that worked there besides Mr. Jack Boyajian, he would not. I then asked if he could give me the licensed bar number of Mr. Boyajian sice every attorney must be licensed in their state to practice law... he got very irritated, told me he had other phone calls to take and if there was something he could help me with, to call him back, and hung up on me.

I waited a few minutes, called back, the same man answered the phone and identified himself as someone different. When I asked for a telephone number for one of their several other offices they had listed on their letterhead, he told me to find a phone book and use it and hung up on me. Very professional "legal office" they have going on there. (Hint of sarcasm there.)

I do not understand how these people can continue to stay in business. If you get a letter like this, ask for proof in writing of your debt. Legally, they have to give this to you, but I can guarantee you probably won't get it. Then call whomever they say you owe the debt to and talk to their legal department and report this so they know someone is using their name in their scam. Call the Boyajian offices and ask if you can have their local phone number. I bet you wo't get one. Or ask for one of their other offices phone number, or the state bar number for Mr. Boyajian. I'm sure "Mr. Rude" who answered the phone will get just as irritated with you as he did me and I was as polite and kind as I could be the entire time just wanting to see if he would give me any information. Don't pay these scammmers a dime.
Report it to your state Attorney General's Office Division of Consumer Protection, the Better Business Bureau, and anyone else you can get to listen.

They are NOT a law firm.EVERYTHING about Boyagian is a FRAUD!

AUTHOR: Kellie - (U.S.A.)

They MASQUERADE as a law firm. They are NOT. They are just a FRONT for a DEBT COLLECTION agency. (as mentioned in above posts not even sure they have a licence for that either).

Bottom line do NOT talk to them or deal with them in any way! DO NOT PAY THEM A PENNY! For the people that are NAIVE enough to pay them, rumors are (Boyagian Firm) pockets the money and makes your credit even WORSE. I'll publish their phone number, however do NOT fall for their SCAM!1800-793-2350. Its funny how when you ask to speak to the "lawyer"(at Boyagian) he/they are never availabe. BOYAGIAN LAW FIRM: TOTAL SCAM and FRAUD IN EVERY WAY! How they are still in business is beyong belief!

How do I get my money back???

AUTHOR: Jenifer - (U.S.A.)

I was ripped off by these people!!! I paid a debt to them without knowing it was actually mine because when I asked for proof, they threatened me with a garnishment. I paid them on the promise that they would send the proof--they never did. I don't think I ever owed that money they claim I did from 10 years previous...how do they get away with this?

There is a good thing about Jack Hagop Boyagian at the site under "Agencies to Avoid", including an investigative newspaper article.
