I have been contacted by ACS collection agency stating that I owed 350.00 for a payday loan.  I then got an email stating that I would be arrested if I didn't pay.  Now I have received 4 emails between July and August saying that if I don't respond to email today and pay half today and then other half within 30 days, I would be taken to court and the major credit bureaus will seize my bank account in the next 7 days.  Now they are saying the lawsuit cost is $2873.81 and resitution amount is now 964.52.  The attorney's name is Paul Smith, Sr. Attorney in New York courthouse.  There are no phone or fax numbers to this attorney's office..they said just respond to e-mail.  The e-mail came from anyone else received this e-mail.  Should I be worried my bank account will be seized anytime within next 7 days?  Is this is a ripoff?

It's a scam - don't contact them at all

AUTHOR: FloridaNative - (USA)

The prior response is right.  There is no question it is a scam. Don't send them any money. Don't contact them. The thing that gives it away is their point that they are going to arrest you for an unpaid debt. The next red flag is the email says that the major credit bureaus will seize your bank account - not possible, that is not what CRA's do undeer any circumstances. There is a procedure that the creditor has to follow to seize your bank account and this isn't it. The next big red flag is that "bureau" is misspelled in their email address and that it is a gmail address. Too many red flags to list. They are scammers. Don't send them any money and don't contact them.

AUTHOR: Travis - (USA)

This is the oldest scam in the book. Do not give them any money, continue doing that and ignore it.
