on a Saturday afternoon, a woman in a silver jeep suv-type vehicle pulled up and pounded on the door. Upon answering it she handed over papers without a signature request saying " you've been served" and left, backing out of the driveway and stopping in the middle of the road of our neighborhood to make a call.

The paper she handed over was a photocopied, but realistic-looking pierce county court document with a date over 4 months old and Return Copy printed at bottom right.

a stamp-photocopied as well with a date 1 month old on the same page. and it's all a photocopy with a tiny print of a law office name and address on the left side lower edge.

It looks like a photocopy of a document on letterhead of a law office from Eugene Oregon from a Daniel N Gordon, but signed by a Matthew R Aylworth, which is little more then a scribble and not very legible.

And it could potentially be a forged county court document at that... at the very least a ripped-off one being used to rip-off I.D.'s or gather money.

Upon the face of it at the top, says District Court of the State of Washington for Pierce County.

In the box below that, it Says plantiff Capitol One vs. my name with an AKA attached to it, which I do not know, or never-ever have used.

To the right, the case no. space is blank.

and the language is double talk but using statements such as respond in writting and serve in person and serve to court etc. stuff like that. conflicting terms. but with no address to serve to or court address or other verifiable contact information. other than this tiny law office printed on side.

language is also suspect used in first person singular of he. with words like pray for judgement and if you don't serve written notice in 20 days that judgement will be issued against you.

And that I have to serve notice in person to the undersigned by the 20 day limit..... which is clear in Eugene Oregon. [to an out of state place uknown to me]. and serve notice to court.

This document is also 3 pages long and attempts to get a sum of $1,744.52 plus back interest to date and attorneys fees.

Although I do have a capitol one account, we've had similar mailings by this same company to our house before
but with other persons names on it that we tossed because they didn't have a capitol one account.

But this is the first time a braisin' attempt of physical contact was made. When this happened this weekend , Feb 9,08 I feared it was a clear attempt of either Identity theft by some persons or crime ring at the minimum who is potentially physically threatening-
or an attempt to extorht money from me for which some how they new I had this credit card.

We had a noticed this vehicle (silver one in which she got out of) for a month or two crusing in our small cul de sac neighborhood but never stopping except once at our mailboxes- but she left. I am assuming now, because it was locked.

After googling and finding your report of this pack- I see now I was correct in my asumption, however, this does not ease my fear of this outfit, nor what they are capable of.

I too am wondering what to do- I am considering police reports and news media help at the present time.

I also read the latest report of this group from a woman in olympia. I would like to add, that the person who "served" at the door was a blonde woman whom two people in my house got a 'good look at' and said she resembled a woman from Thurston County [ Olympia] that they knew of....

Who claimed to worked in a 'law office' in Thurston County about at least 6 years ago.

One of the other persons in my house who got a look at her said she remembered this person stalking us for quiet some time- even years ago around town. [ by stalking I refer to following us in a car where we went, onto grocery store isles, at are place of work a while ago before job changes.

I live in a good sized east-central Pierce county city. Although, I am not certain if I should even respond to this letter, or where I can go to even verify if this is real or a scam, My advice to anybody else who see this woman or her car to not go to your door! This party is clearly brasin and capable of anything!

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Not surprised

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

I am an ex-employee of this "firm". I worked there for a very short time due to the "means" in which they used to attempt to collect debts. I am not surprised at the tactics you have described. I was fired from this firm for voiving my opinion about the use of thrests, harassment, and horrid intentional demeaning of the consumers. (These are the very things the FDCPA is supposed to protect you from) Not only does this firm use these tactics, but they push them to the extreme. I remember being on the phone trying to collect on a Bank of America account and my supervisor was in the background yelling" get that f***ing money". It was at this point that I realized that I was not going to put up with the illegal and immoral actions and put my name on a possible infraction of a Federal Law. It was this very day that the General Manager fired me. To get back at me, months later I received a letter from them attempting to collect a debt - in my daughter's name. She was eight years old. They fraudulantly put that debt in her name. It took one call to them to get this dismissed, but the fact is that they did it to harass me. I would also say that most of the other credit collection companies in the area frown upon you if you have worked for this company. Their reputation procedes them in this community.

#2 Consumer Suggestion


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

Having dealt with Daniel N Gordon PC and Matthew Aylworth, I can say that I woudn't put it past them to try something weird. the facts.

First, a legally "served" document doesn't need any signature from you at all. All they really have to do is verify you, usually by you saying you are you, and drop the documents on the floor if you refuse to take them. It's a legal serve.

Second, the summons to "appear" in court and complaint for the lawsuit need to be true copies or original. No, they shouldn't look cheaply photocopied either.

IF this is from their office, they do have a history of typing the wrong information onto the forms, which has been my personal experience.

I'd definitely call Capital One and see what's going on. As this post is rather old now, I'm assuming you have more information for us? I'll help if I can.

#3 Consumer Comment

Very Confusing

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

Have you verified if any of this is true, the lawfirm, the documents, etc? If it is a scam, have you contacted the police in your area? Please let us know how it goes for you. Nothing surprises me with Capital ONe, but you could have someone doing identity theft on you, or they are attempting to scam you out of your money. I would also advise you to seek independent legal advise on this matter, ASAP. Just in case it is a mix up, you don't want a quick judgment on your credit record.
