US Investigations of Bureau Officer Roy Wilson Telephone Scam Personal Information n/a, Nationwide

*Consumer Comment: Same scam, different name

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

US Bureau of Investigations left me a voicemail regarding an family member.  The voicemail stated that my name was listed as a reference on a legal document and that I needed to contact them immediately.  Upon listening to the email, I immediately called the 724-512-2120 number back.  The guy who answered the phone answered with an "hello" and nothing formal.  I stated that I received a call.  He asked for my name in which I asked for his.  He identified himself as Officer Wilson.  "Officer Wilson" had a very thick accent and was very hard to understand. He asked about my relationship with the person who listed me as a reference.  I informed him that I would not give any information to him until he told me what this was in reference to.  Thats when he stated that this was a internet pay day loan that was unpaid by my relative and that an legal investigation would be conducted.  I asked that I contact my relative and let them know to contact him immediately.  At that time, I informed him that I am an attorney and that he was to not contact me again. 

I believe that this is a scam.  I contacted my relative.  She called the number and the guy (with the accent) got upset with her because she asked for official documents regarding this "loan". He basically hung up on her. 

Please beware.

Same scam, different name

AUTHOR: MsTracy - (USA)

This scam has been around for a long time; these scammers also go by the name "The Department of Law and Investigation."  These scammers seem to target people who have applied for and/or received a "Payday Loan" off of the Internet.  These people seem to be of Indian or Middle Eastern descent.  They will call and harass the consumer; they'll threaten to have the consumer fired, put in jail,and other ridiculous statements for apparently not paying back a "Payday Loan".    This is fraud and extortion, plain and simple.  I wish that these scammers would be caught, and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
