This is the email I received today, it's weird that the only info on can find on them is on rip off report and the person who filed the report received an email with the same exact amount of "the garnishment order was for 1423.13", that is in past tense, they act as if they have already taken money from me. Anyway you can see it in all the body of the email. I can't find any info on this so called "Sr. Investigator Patrick Spencer" either. I've copied and pasted the email below. Please Beware. Oh, also, they name no creditor so how does one know who it is for, and they say to contact creditor, no name of one, but nonetheless. What's with the "Arrest Notice" at the end of the title but nothing in the body about being arrested, maybe if you don't pay? It's a scare tactic.  

Garnishment Notification and Arrest Notice CASE FILE #: UD-127/A26/32186 Date: September 15th, 2017 Settlement Amount: $956.27. Dear (my full name here) This letter is to notify you that we have received a Summons of Garnishment on your wages. This means that someone you owe money to has been awarded a judgment by the court for payment of the debt. The court has ordered us your employer to deduct 25-30% percent of your disposable earnings and make payment to the court on your behalf. The following applies to you: Why am I receiving this notice? The United States, or a State Debt support enforcement agency, certifying its right to garnish your Federal benefits shall attach or include with a garnishment order the following Notice; Garnish wages owed to a Debtor after Small Claims Court has made an order that you owe money. On June 23rd, 2016 we received a garnishment order from a court to [freeze/remove] funds in your account. The amount of the garnishment order was for $1423.13. We are sending you this notice to let you know what we have done in response to the garnishment order. You can contact your creditor for the settlement amount. If you have any questions about the garnishment, you should contact the persons named on the included Summons of Garnishment by email.

It’s a scam

AUTHOR: Amanda - (United States)

  I received the same exact email with the same exact case number. I’m assuming it’s a scam because why would two people have the same case number? Case numbers are individual to the person It’s a scam

You are right, it is a scam

AUTHOR: FloridaNative - (USA)

No question that this email is an attempt to scam you out of money.

Thank goodness you recognize it and have posted the email in its entirety. 

If anyone else receives this scam email they can look up their own public records (to double check) and if there is a judgment, then contact the judgment lienholder directly and do not contact anyone associated with the email. Odds are there is no judgment. I mention judgment because one has to be issued prior to a garnishment order. These scammers just mention the garnishment in a fictious amount to scare you. Best not to contact them at alll.

Thank you again for posting the email so we can see the most recent version of this long running collection scam.
