ED Magedson – Founder
Financial Accountability AssociationLos Angeles, California United States of America
First a got a voicemsg on my cell from a man requesting to speak with me(by name) or my attorney regarding a very important and time sensitive matter. It was imperative that I not ignore the message and that if I did not respond, he said good luck to you it was a very stilted msg like if it was an automated voice -- very thick Indian accent and he said his name was Gary Jones. He left the number (310) 598-1682. I called it immediately and it rang, and rang, and rang several times before it switched over to a voicemail box No mention of company or person just leave a message after the tone.
A few minutes later I received a call from David Cooper (310) 598-1766 Told me that my employer would be served with notice of a lawsuit against me for an unpaid loan and that the company is suing me for stealing the money. He provided my SSN, email address, name of sisters, and that I worked here Would not tell me who filed the lawsuit, how much I supposedly owed or case number, would not fax me the info. Just that one of their people would be here tomorrow to serve the papers to my employer and this would be taken to court on Monday. I asked for a website address so I could read about his company and was told that there was none. I asked if they were members of the Better Business Bureau and he said that Financial Accountability Association was a legal firm and not a business.
As we were talking, I "Googled" FAA and that's when I saw that this was indeed a scam and saw that others were contacted the same way and I informed him as such. He said that it was not a scam and to see what happens.
Ive filed a 90Day fraud alert with Equifax and this in turn will apply to Transamerica and Experian bureaus. I called David Cooper back and told him that I filed with Equifax and with Ripoff Report and other agencies. He said... "do you have anything else to say" I said no and he hung up before I could tell him not to call me anymore.
What a nightmare!!!
