Today, I received a call that nearly gave me a heartattack. The man had a deep Indian/Arabic voice. He asked for me. He stated that it was a very very important matter. He told me that I was having charges pressed against me for fraud. This guy had all my information. He read me off my social security number, my home address, my relatives names, my phone number, my bank account number, my bank name, etc. He stated to me that I had taken out a loan of $490 from the United States National Bank and never paid them back. Then he stated to me that I had done an electronic check over the internet, and the money was not in my account. I told him I had no clue what he was talking about. Then he started yelling at me in a deep indian voice telling me that I was lying and such. He then immediately went into telling me that I was going to jail and that I would have to pay $25,000 to get out of jail. He told me I would spend years in jail, pay a huge legal fine and such. He told me I would be arrested in two hours. Then he told me I would be arrested at 8 AM the next morning. Still at this point, I had no clue what he was talking about. He did state to me my bank name, and I did remember having a check bounce over the internet. It was for online poker, Pokerstars specifically. But I did pay all the money back. This was in April 2008. But the guy told me what he was talking about, occured back in October 2007 and it was for $490. He kept telling me that I was going to jail, and kept pounding in my head that I would have to pay $25,000 to get out.

After about 10 minutes talking to this guy, he said he wanted to put his top supervisor on the phone. This guy named Will came on the phone. But it was the same guy talking. The same guy I was talking to first, pretended to be his own supervisor. He started yelling at me telling me that I thought that it was a scam phone call, even though I never once said that. He kept saying "this is a serious matter, this is not a scam". About halfway through the call, he then stated to me that we could resolve all of this without having to go through the legal system. He said we could resolve this if I paid $890 to him with a debit/credit card. He said if I paid him, then all my legal troubles would go away. He kept pounding in my head the fact that it will cost $25,000 to get out and that I would go to jail. At this point in the call, I knew that this was a scam. The original number that came up was 524-801-89. I wanted to test the waters and see what he would say to some of my questions. I told him that I didn't have a bank account or credit card. He then said that I would have to go to Walmart, and pick up a prepaid Mastercard/Visa and put money on there and pay them the $890. He asked how long it would take. I told him 2 hours. He then suddenly got really angry and said nevermind and to forget the entire deal and that he would press charges. I found that to be pretty funny. He then settled down and I told him that I would call him back and that I would need a phone number to call him back on. The number was 607-330-0158. I googled it and it came up as a New York number. I don't understand why when he called it came up with the weird odd numbered phone number. Im thinking it was a calling card. This guy was in no way a professional and he was very very angry throughout the call. I found it to be a scam for a number of reasons. The first being that he wouldn't give me details on what my fraud charge was all about. He wanted to make sure I knew the consequences of what would happen if I didn't pay him the $890. And lastly, no business, nor government establishment would give you all this information over the phone and ask for a debit/credit card over the phone. They also would not tell you that you were going to be arrested by 8 AM in the morning. This is very scary though that they knew my bank account information and all, my social security number, my relatives names, my address, my email address. I will contact the FBI and my local police department about this. Anyone with similar calls from this company or arabian/indian guy?

Unfortunately, this fellow is still on the loose.

AUTHOR: Jean - (USA)

I, too have received numerous calls at my work from this man.  Today was the final straw.  He called at least 7-8 times in a row, one call after another.  I finally called our state Attorney General's office and was referred to our state Department of Finance.  I explained to a very helpful and informative gentleman my situation and he suggested I file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, which I intend to do immediately.  This gentleman called the number the jerk left before I hung up on him and really rattled his cage!  I got some satisfaction from that.  I hope eventually he finds a real job.

Me Too

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

I was contacted today by these people. I refused to confirm information he had, which was my personal information. My friend does debt collection law and I remembered from her never to confirm the information. They are calling you. They have the information.

I hung up on the guy and called back. There is music when they put you on hold and then alot of noise in the background. I tried to get information from the guy, including the name of his company and the phone number, which he did not want to give me.

When I checked them on line I knew it was a scam because the phone number was the same as another entry. I contacted my local police department and my social security office. I am going to contact the FBI as well.

I recieved a call today at work from a man of aarabian background definetly not english decent. He asked me my name and gave me the last four digits of my ss#. He stated that he needed to transfer me and I could here him pushing buttons on a telephone and then he kept coming on and saying my name and hit some more buttons on the phone. I hung the phone up on him as I was at my job and I work in an emergency room. He immediately called me back and started yelling that I had hung up on him. He then states his name is Travis Griffin (this was the same guy that called me). He told me that he was an attorney and then later on said he was a top investigator. He told me that he had filed charges against me with the attorney generals office in my state and that I was going to jail for six months. He read off my ss#, my old address, my old bank name, my relatives names, and my drivers license number and then said and "I cancelled that today because your going to jail for 6 months". He told me that he froze my SS# with the US government. He told me he was representing a company called Midland Marketing. He went on for about five to ten minutes of threatening me with going to jail and that it would cost me $35000 to get out of jail. He told me that the police would be at my workplace in two hours to take me to jail and that I had to be in court at 11 am tomorrow. He told me that I needed to pay him $920 today and al the legal matters would be dropped. He told me I was ruining my life and I would not see my children in 6 months. I told him he was crazy and he started yelling at me and told me I was trying to act like his boss. I asked him what was a good contact number to call him back at and he told me 607-330-0158. I had lived in NY for 19 years prior to moving to Florida and I knew that this was a NY area code. He kept yelling at me and I hung up the phone on him..I received another phone call about two minutes later from a man identifying himself as Johnathan Lloyd. I asked him if he was calling me from the same office as Travis Griffin(I knew this was the same guy on the phone just giving different names) and he stated that I refused to pay $920 so he had my file on his desk to start the legal proceedings that Travis had explained to me. I am contacting the attorney generals office in NY to report this scam. Hope no one else falls for it. If you have a bank acct that he read off to you I strongly suggest closing the account and getting a new account number.

I had the same thing happen to me with united legal investigations

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

Just a couple of days ago. A man with a strong arabic accent called me threatening me saying if I didn't come up $1400.00 by the end of the day I would be sent to federal prison for two years for fraud.

I did take out two payday loans online back about four years ago. They were for $300.00 each, I know I repayed one off but not the other. But this man on the phone would not give me any information about those companies so that I could contact them myself

So like a dummy I did give my bank card information, so that he could take out a payment. Then I called the police dept. and the FBI, they said NEVER give out my bank information over the phone. And to somehow get in touch with those companies and make payment arrangements. ( which I am trying to do but I don't remember the names of those companies & i'm not sure how to find them.)

The FBI agent told me to call my bank and cancel that bank card (which I did). But I still don't know if these people really are a collection agency. And i'm wondering if I could be arrested for not taking care of this bill/bills sooner.
