Advanced Fee Fraud

AUTHOR: Peter - (United States)

POSTED: Saturday, September 08, 2018

Hi Kelly

Ashton and Weinberg are rather unscrupulous debt collectors however my main concern is that you are victim advanced fee fraud.

Let me guess you replied to an ad online looking for an administrative assistant,shipping agent, mystery shopper or something similar. This Ronald Thomson got back to you and told you this job involved processing payments you would receive checks and deposit them in your bank. You would keep a small portion then send him the rest via Moneygram or Western Union. Then days or weeks later the checks bounce. Ronald Thomson is gone you will never hear from him again and no one will ever find him.

First if the checks came through the mail you need to contact the United States Postal Inspection Service. Tell them what happened and send then anything you might have. Then file a complaint with FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center. Also file a report with your local police. You might also consider consulting a lawyer.

Now contact all three credit bureaus and place fraud alerts on your credit reports. Then get in touch with your bank and talk to risk management. Tell them what happened and send them the police report you filed. Your report mentioned DCU. There is no State or Federal agency with those initials. But there is a bank Digital Federal Credit Union. Are they your bank? If not they might be the bank the checks were drawn on. You might want to talk to their risk management department too.

Unfortunately it might be too late for the banks to help beyond creating a paper trail. Your debt was almost certainly written off and sold. This where Ashton and Weinberg come into play. They are debt buyers. Rather scummy ones as you know. They lie and intimidate but they are not lawyers or cops. They can't arrest you. They can't even sue you though they can sell your debt to a scumbag lawyer who will sue you. Do not speak to them on phone under any circumstance. Send them a debt validation request and cease commutations letter you can find the format online. Include your police report.

None of this will get your money back but it might stop Ashton and Weinberg and save you from from loosing even more money.

I hope this is helpful.

Peter.
