The lady I spoke with searched their computer and found no record of me ever being there. She also did a search of their stored files and found nothing. I then called my bank to see if they had a record of this check, they did not. I then called the number on the letter and was told by Glen Roberts, who I might add had a VERY thick accent, that I owed them $248.00 or I would be charged with check fraud.
I asked him if he could send me a copy of this so called check and he said he would. I never heard back so I assumed that he was just trying to scam me. On October 18th he called my house and left a message saying that I was being charged with check fraud and am being barred from the business the "check" was wrote at and that there was a warrant out for me. I then asked him why he did not send me a copy of the check and he said that he was not allowed because I could use it for fraud.
WHAT KIND OF SENSE DOES THAT MAKE?? He then said that some lawyers would be contacting me with a court date and when I went to court I would be able to see the check and they would then verify my handwriting. I asked him again why couldn't just send me proof and he said that he was just calling to warn me that I was getting charged and hung up.
After calling my bank and the business about this matter and reading about other claims against this company I believe this is a scam. I am going to send them a cease and desist letter and call and inform the guy that the statues of limitations are up on this matter and he will be getting no money from me.
