This is in essence the e-mail I received. I don't know how this people acquired my name, SSN, telephone number and now my e-mail address. I know this is a scam because you have other reports regarding this issue with the exact words. When they were calling, they used different names, different law firms, but it was usually the same person talking even though he was using a different name , and a different phone number everytime he called.
Every peron who called had an Asian Indian accent. I asked them many to stop the scams that they would not take one cent out of me and that they were wasting their time, now they have resorted to this threatening e-mails. I reported them to the FTC, but they continued to call and now this. Apparently, nothing can stop them from harrassing people, but at least I am letting others know through your website. Thank you for being a means where we can alert others of criminal activities against us.
