Department Of Law And Investigations - Legal Affidavit Office Collection office scam Washington District of Columbia
They started calling me in January of 09 under the name "Legal Affidvit Office". I admit they scared me the first time, telling me to give them $900 or meet them at the courthouse tomorrow morning....but I didn't give in, and researched them and found out they are a scam. I did file a complaint with the FTC for whatever good it did.
They called me again in June using the same name, Legal Affidavit Office and today I got a call from the again, saying they were from Department of Law and Investigations. I recognized the middle eastern accents right away and before they even got started I told them "I've heard of you guys, you're a scam, I'm hanging up and don't call me back" and that was it (for now at least).
If they leave you voice mails, save them. If they happen to get you on the phone, don't let them upset you, if they see that they have you scared or angry, they will keep pressing you. Just give them some smart ass response like, "Oh okay whatever you say" and hang up. Don't give them any info. If they read you off your SS#, say it isn't yours. That's what I did the second time they called me and it flustered them, they read off my address, told them it was incorrect (even though it wasn't) and they hung up.
