On May 11th, 2009 i recieved a letter from Georgia Check Recovery saying that a check that i wrote on 10/20/08 had been dishonored. I was reading through the letter and at the top said it was the "THIRD NOTICE". First of all i thought it was weird because i had NEVER recieved a first or second notice. So it all seemed kinda weird.

In my letter they sent me it states, "Pursuant to state law, KS imposes both CIVIL and CRIMINAL penalties against any person whom issues a bad check. It is presumed that this person has committed the offense of writting a worthless check if he/she issued that instrument while having no account, or non-sufficient funds to clear it."

"Unless this amount is paid in full in our office the holder of the check may assume that you delivered the instrument with the intent to defraud and the instrument may be turned over to a national database which is used by over 300,000 retail stores and financial institutions across North America and may be turned over to the proper authorities for prosecution."

"Checks are NOT to be deposited and payment may only be made to Georgia Check Recovery for proper accounting. This is a communication from a debt collector. This is an attemt to collect a debt and all information obtained will be used for that purpose."

"THE MERCHANT WILL NOT ACCEPT PAYMENT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES."

"This is a serious matter and you are instructed to contact this office immediately to make resolution on or before 05/06/09. Our office is open during the hours of 9am until 9pm, Monday thru Friday."

I called this company and asked what was going on the man on the phone transferrred me to Mr. Shirley who was then very rude and would not give me any information that i had asked about with this letter. He rattled off ways to pay off the debt that very day ($6.95 moneygram from Wal-mart, $12.00 for direct payment from my checking account) and on and on. He said I had to pay by 05/13/09 or face legal action.

He told me if it was not paid by May 13th 2009 i would have a warrant out for my arrest for the check. I asked who the check was wrote to and for how much and the only thing he would tell me is it was wrote to the Clear Point International Company. The check was for $11.90. I told Mr. Shirley i wanted to go ahead and pay it. I gave him all my account information and he said he was going to run it through in an hour. My total for the check was $11.90 and this company was trying to charge me $123.90

I got off the phone and started thinking about it and called the bank i was going through at that time and they said the check had already been paid for and that it was a scam. So i called my bank and had them put a stop payment on this check. I now have to go to the bank and close my account and start up a new one since they have all my information for this account. I then called Georgia Check Recovery and the man was real rude to me and told me he could not send me any information about the check and he said i would have a warrant for my arrest and would have to go to court if not paid by May 13th 2009.

I was told by both banks my old and my new not to pay any money to this company because it was a scam. I am now glad i put a stop to it and talked to the banks and found all this information on the computer.

GEORGIA CHECK RECOVERY IS A SCAM

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

I have already filed a rebuttal, but I have more information to include. I called the company that my check was written to Pizza Hut and they gave me the name of their collection agency from the Corperate office which wasn't Georgia Check Recovery, and they said, that hadn't even heard of them, and they ran my name through a national database, and my name did not show up for bad checks....eventhough the statues of limitations is seven years, they said they wouldn't come after me sooner, if I did owe and didn't respond. And when I call the number for Georiga check recovery it's always the same lady, like a local loan company.
I have been furious so, I decided to follow my intuitiona and call them, stating I would be making my payment personally, you should've heard her mouth drop on the phone.......and saying " No one ever comes to Jersey, it's a small town." Duh, small towns don't have big businesses such as a collection agency.

I have decided that the best thing I can do, is do the will of God and write her a letter telling her about Jesus. Nothing in life is that bad, that you have to prey on people's weakness and steal from others.

Georia Check Recover Rip -off

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

I am so relieved to see that someone else has gone through what I am going through. I received a letters and finally 3 years later a call......for three checks written to Pizza Hut......and they told me the same thing......since I have had a past with owing checks to the D.A., I thought, this is just karma coming to bite me in the butt, but I've taken care of my responsiblity, eventhough, it's a hard lesson to learn. They said, I owe $416.64, which I know that I didn't spend that much on pizza.......so, I decided to research them online, and found this site.
