My elderly, disabled mother has been recieving threatening phone calls from a company called First Cash International. They are claiming that she took out a loan from a company that she never paid back. The caller ID generally displays "unknown or unavailable". When she did not answer the call, they left a threatening message stating that they were a law firm representing a company from which she was being sued by for non-payment of a loan.

The caller does not speak English very clearly and we had to listen to the voice mail severly times. He left a number for her to call back, (724) 990-0656. When we returned the call he could not give us any information about what company was sueing her, where or how the loan was taken out, nothing.

He continued his spill about how she was going to get sued, spouting out her ss# and DOB. He told us she could wire money today or suffer the rath of legal fees that would follow in the wake of her non-wiring.

Being suspecious, I decided to do some research on the internet and low and behold...its a SCAM! My advice to any consumer plagued by these voltures is protect yourself by filing an identity theft report with your local police station, send a copy of that report to all the major credit reporting agencies and put a security freeze on your debts, and contact your local attorney generals office and file a complaint.

same thing happened to us

AUTHOR: just me - (USA)

on november 20th, 2010 we recieved a phone call from someone named "jeffery morgan" he claimed he was from "morgan and associates" and was calling on behalf of "fast cash" he said my husband owed a loan to them totaling $398.00 and that we could settle this debt with him if we sent them $300.00. (we were suspicious of this being my aunt is in fact a actual attorney so i know how they work). and this jeffrey morgan told us if we did not pay this money immeditely then we would end up paying over $800.00 including court costs and all. and that we would end up facing inprisonment. this guy had our names and ss#. but i never reconized the "fast cash" place he said he was working on behalf of. so me being dumb gave this guy our credit card info. the guy said i had to fax him a paper with a copy of identifaction and a paper saying i agree to pay this debt.

so the next day rolled around and thankfully i got my bank statement and i found the REAL place we got a loan from and it (like i knew) wasn't "fast cash". so i called the real loan place, and asked them if they had a "Jeffrey Morgan" working on behalf of them. the lady we talked to stopped us from saying anything more and said "let me ask you one thing??? did this guy have a foreign accent?" we said yes because he did. he sounded like he was from India or somewhere over there. she then said its a scam asked us if we gave him our bank info we said we gave him our credit card info. she told us to cancel that right away and to call the homeland security. she even gave us the number to call them too. so we got off the phone with her and canceled the card, then called the homeland security office. but they were closed so we left a message. so then the Jeff Morgan guy called later yesterday evening and asked if i was able to fax the paper to him. i said hell nooooo. that i found out he was a scam and i already contacted the homeland security and that i also canceled my card. he yelled at me and threatened me then we hung up on him and haven't heard from him since. we talked to someone from the homeland security today and found out there have been over 3,000 reports filed against this man. i asked the security officer why no one has caught him yet and he said because they are still trying to find him and believe he is in another country and he has to work with other countries to help catch this evil guy!!! so i hope i helped you guys out a little at least. again he calls himself "Jeffrey Morgan" says he's from "Morgan and associates" WILL NOT give you any info about your supposed loan. and has a Indian accent. the number he called us from was (877) 630-0693 and his "fax" number was 800-783-9394. he also blocked his number many times and made it show up as "0000".

homeland security number is (989) 497-0580

if u guys get these harassment phone calls then contact the homeland security a.s.a.p. that number should direct you to the local office near you. that's the local number near me that is why it's a 989 number.

thanks and good luck to u all!!!

Sounds like these same scammers

AUTHOR: Jim - (U.S.A.)

These a**holes are calling from Pakistan using fake American sounding names, their scam is To scare you into paying a Loan that doesn't exist.

Usually by saying they're Officer(Fake American Name) Obvious clue, the heavy accent, hard to understand, or cannot understand this (American Name) Officer?

Their Theft is to scare you by threats like "Have the police at your door" or "Warrant has been signed" or "You're in big trouble", "You've committed BANK FRAUD" or similar lies.

They usually say they're from "The Department of LAW and Investigation" or similar scary FAKE NAMES (recently they used United Nations Law Division, and ACS Law division, and even more recently 1st IRS Legal Dept)

You're NOT in trouble, they're just good Liars, Pay them NOTHING, they're only Slimy thieves.

Recently they've been changing names at the speed of light, and they use a telephone relay so they look like they're calling in America, they're NOT.

This is another name, but the same scammers.

OR IF YOU WANT PROOF THEY'RE THIEVES Tell them to send you verification there's any "Debt" at all, if they start screaming at you, that's proof positive that they're just thieves.

When/if they call again tell them they're just thieves and hang up, they can't arrest you, It's just a scam.
