This is the first time I'm writing a ripoff report, but this is the second time this has happened to me.
About three months ago I received a call at work from a man named Leo Walters who worked for "The Federal Bank." He had my name, ssn, bank information (which was wrong), phone numbers and my home address. He said to me that he had a very important matter that I need to take care of right away. I stated I had no idea what he was talking about.
He stated that in 2003-2005 I had taken out many payday loans and I defaulted on all of them and I now need to pay them back to his company. He stated there are 3 criminal charges against me and if I do not work with him to take care of this right away he would have his "people" come and pick me up at work. I asked who his "people" were and he told me they would provide me with that information when they got to my job.
I asked for the street address, phone number and company information to report to the police. He gave me The Federal Bank 1155 NW 85th Street in New Haven, CT. The phone number was 321-221-0018.
I contact my work security office and the township police. I filed a report against this company. The police called the number given and asked the person that answered the phone to speak with Leo Walters and they stated no one there went by that name. When the police asked the company name that he was calling, they advised the police officer was harrassing them and he should stop calling or they would press charges.
The very next day I got another call from the company and advised I filled a police report and I was going to press charges. At that time Leo Walters told me he loved me and asked me please do not press charges. He would pay me thousands of dollars for me not to press charges. I stated I want nothing to do with him company and to stop calling.
At that time I thought it was all behind me. Well, I was wrong. Today I got a call from Charlie Jones who asked my full name. When I gave it to him he stated please hold and transferred me to Leo Walters. Again he started telling me that I have to pay him money or I will be arrested.
By this time I'm tired of getting scams from these types of people. I asked for the name of his company. This time it is "David, Morgan and Associates." I then asked for the address and he gave me 1155 NW 85th Street in Winter Garden, FL.
I then told him that I spoke with him a couple of months ago and he had given me a different company name, the same street address, but a different city and state. He said he did not know what I was talking about and I was trying to confuse him to get out of paying my debt.
I told him I was going to file another police report and file with the attorney general. He stated once I did that to please have the attorney general give him a call so he can discuss my case. He then hung up on me.
