On thursday 7-2-2009 2 of my relatives had threatening calls from James Williams, State Investigation Dpt, NY. He stated I owed money and used them as references. I had in the past gotten a payday loan online and paid it off. He told my contacts that they were going to jail because of my debt. He became very abusive to them, said he knew where they were and was coming after them. He then called me, I asked if this was related to Fast Cash International and he said yes. I told him this was a scam and to leave us alone. He called me back Monday 7-6-2009 demanding I pay 820.29. Itold him I was not paying anything to him that I do not owe on any payday loans and to not call again.
I called the U.S. Attorney in Washington D.C.. I filed a report, told them James Williams work place, I was told there is no such place that this is a scam, not to pay them anything and to hang up if they call back. I was also told to call the Credit Bureau and put a fraud alert on my credit reports. I did, then viewed my reports online and noticed someone (not me) had tried to purchase an automobile here in Springfield last January 2009. I had bought a vehicle from this lot in June 2008. Not only am I being scammed I am also the victim of identify theft and have no idea who it could be.
Back to Fast Cash International and BMG @ Bahama Marketing Group: They are working hand in hand, this told to me by the U.S. Attorney General. They are very aware of this scam....do not pay them anything. A legitimate creditor will send a notice by mail on any money you owe them. They will also tell you over the phone their mailing address, date of debt, company owed. These scammers cannot tell you anything other that they want money right now, over the phone.
PLEASE IGNORE THESE PEOPLE.
As everyone can see on this website, these 2 scammers have been very busy. There are thousands of people getting these calls that have not found this site yet.
