ED Magedson – Founder
American Law Department2140 Chula Vista Drive San Francisco, California United States of America
This company has been calling me at work for MONTHS now before I finally realized what was going on. Always it is a man with an Indian-sounding accent, yet he has a super American sounding name, like Robert White or something. He first claims to be from the State Criminal Investigative Department, trying to sound all official. He always leaves threatening and scary sounding messages with my job.
When I have called the number that was given no one gives a professional answer, the person just says "Can I help you?". At that point you have to give the number that you received the phone call on so they can pull up your "case file". They then proceed to tell you this is a very serious criminal matter, who is your attorney because this lawsuit is being filed. You have to push and push in order to get them to actually state a company NAME. The first time I tried that they put me on hold for nearly 30 minutes only to come back and and say that the first guy I was talking to had to go to a meeting and they will call me back. Never happened, they just continued to call my job.
Finally today I pushed enough where I made them give me a name and address and I insisted that they send me something in WRITING to give me proof that I supposedly owed this payday loan to some unknown company. Basically he made up an address on the spot, but was stupid enough to use the name of the city that I work in as the street address. I not only Googled the address (fake) but also the name of the company and the supposed attorney (fake). My husband is a paralegal and has better resources than I do, and he also came up with the same fake information. I had my hsuband call him then and I also informed my employer what was going on. They still called back yet ANOTHER time. At this point my boss instructed me to go to Security and let them know what was going on. Security told me to file a report with the local police department and the office personnel were instructed to transfer any future calls directly to Security.
They finally DID manage to email me some fake looking document, obviously NOT an official governmental form, with all kinds of misspellings and grammatical errors. The SCARY part of all this is that they DID have my social security number and and OLD bank account number of mine. Thankfully that account is closed so they can try and get money from it all they want. They also had the wrong name of my employer.
I spoke with a Detective in our local police department and gave him the number to call them. I also forwarded them the document that was sent to me.
