Ok, so this morning I received a voicemail on my cellphone from a man with a STRONG accent (Eric Sheraton and he was calling from "Jackson Law Firm") saying that i was a primary suspect and there's a lawsuit being filed against me. So I immediately think, they have the wrong person. I call back the number he left in the message (786-533-3031).. Someone answered asking my name and who I was calling for.. then "Eric Sheraton" came on the line explaining to me that I was being charged 3 criminal charges, and that I was given a cash loan from this company and never paid back "so i stole from them". I was so confused and I know I NEVER received any cash advance from this company. He said I had an outstanding balance of $927.. WHAT??? he then said i'd have the option to settle in court or out of court.... and i said in court because I never received a dime from them and this is complete BULL. He then scared me into thinking i'd have to pay $8000+ if i do it in court, and he's trying to help me by setting up a payment arrangement. He had me going for a while, because I was so scared. UNTIL... He stopped me mid sentence to tell me his "manager" would like to further speak with me and finish setting up the payment arrangements. I said ok. He then pressed two keys on the phone and the SAME EXACT person came back on the phone stating a different name. I knew something was up. While on the phone I asked for the company's number and then googled them and saw that this has happened to ppl before. IT WAS INDEED A SCAM. I then asked him how much was the balance i supposedly owed and he told me $987. BEFORE it was $927 and now it increased another $60. BULLSH*T!! I was so upset and tried to again explain that I NEVER RECEIVED A DIME from them, he then got loud with his tone.. telling me that I can face up to 90 days in jail, and I'll be arrested at work, and sorts of bullshit. By then, I was up on game and hung the phone up. After all that, I called the number he gave me to contact cash advance usa.. and it was NOT IN SERVICE!! These people are absolutely ridiculous and need to STOPPED!
