I was contacted at work by a man calling himself James Watson, but due to his heavy accent I doubted that name, claiming that his company was filing a suit in LA county court against me for 5K+ due to an unpaid payday loan. As he was talking, I went to my bank site and looked for anything like this in September, 2008, and found not only no deposits but no attempts to withdraw a payment. So, I told him that there was nothing in my bank records that indicated any truth to this, but he just kept screaming that they were going to file a suit. So, then, he transferred me to somebody claiming to be Kevin Peterson, again with a very thick accent, who gave me a fax number and told me to send a fax stating that I agreed to pay them $1500 and sign my name, to stop the filing of the suit.

Well, I faxed a statement saying that if they could send me proof of the fact that I owed this debt, I would be willing to pay the amount originally owed, $300 plus an equable amount of interest. Of course, I heard nothing back from them that day.

The next day, when I came to work, they had left a message on our 800 line voice mail, threatening me with more dire stuff and yelling that this was not a joke. I called our corporate attorney's office and they actually knew about this scam. I think that they got my name and information because my wallet was stolen last summer, with my driver's license and all sorts of information about me, including my health card, which lists the last 4 digits of my SSN. Do not pay these people! Report the fraud immediately--if you wait they will change their phone numbers and you will never find them.
