I did the same thing out of fear the letter that the guy emailed me said he was an attorney and had an official looking stamp! Looking back, I would definitely have checked into it more, but was scared that I was going to jail. At the time, I had a couple of outstanding payday loans, so I panicked. I also am out $458, expensive lesson to learn. NEW RULE: Don't borrow money!!! And definitely don't pay a bill that I am not 100% sure of.
I received a call today and they told me that I had unpaid payday loans. I laughed at him and he said "excuse me" and I said I never had payday loans that's funny. He got any and said "ok well have a good day your going to be arrested" l it was funny to me.
Im getting the same messages. .. has anyone been arrested?
I have never had a payday loan and this guy called me too. so I called this "lawyer" back after talking to my local sheriff. I told him never ever call me again and he was going to be turned into the fcc. I said more than that!!
John Smith called me several times over the past month....(Indian)....asked him if he was Capt. John Smith...he said yes...asked him never to call back...explainrd I have recorded this call and saved several threating messages....so far so good no calls today YET!
This guy calls on different numbers same India accent, threaten me i would not get my Social Security benefits taken if i did not call him back. Plus i work for the Federal Government. He has threatened by husband with fraud, arrest and law suit. So i called my attorney and he said he would take care of it. One call from my attorney they stop, Don't argue with them, just don't answer and hang up. They buy unpaid debts for 10 cents on the dollar and try to charge you double. they can't do anything to you. My attorney has given me the in and outs. JUST DON"T ANSWER.
had the same call. He said his name was John Michael Anderson. Yeah, not with that Indian accent. Said that I faulted on an online payday loan. Funny, never accepted any funds. Tells me that he will file the necessary paper work with local sheriff to get me arrested. I keep calling back but they either hang up on me or send me to voice mail. :)
Called several times in the last five days said some one has used my ss# and had the last four numbers. to obtain illegal benefits. That if I dont call back and resolve this matter that the sheriff, FBI and attorney general of TN will pursue this matter and I will do jail time, lose my job and everything I owe. He says his name is Marcus Lewis calling from abelson and Associates. The law firm does exist and I wonder if they know their name is being used in the scam or if they are part of the scam????? just wondering
I actually received this call at my place of employment and I was a little scared at first. It was the Steven Michael name. I asked for the company I owed money to and he just said a payday advance loan, which I have never received so I instantly started digging and found this blog (I am glad I did). When I called him back I told him I was going to have my attorney contact him. He only said o and huh. My employer said if he called them again they would look into it but seems like they are good hiders. Good luck to you all.
keep getting the same phone calls all the time never talked to any one but I got really mad this time , and called him back and he said tasty things and and that eben taster things and then told him this is how a lawyer and told him that he was all ove the internet as a scam artist . fanilly he just haung up on me and I just kept calling back tell i got him again and ask him how much money he has faueded people scince last talk to him, and he said please don't call me again and I told him I will all you ever time you call me and give you the same s*** you arre giving all these poor people so don't call me and I will not call you.

This company called and said I would be arrested for fraud. i kept calling them back and they got nasty .said he was a police officer Sean Wood. had to do with cash advance co. Then they stopped answering the phone saying I "Am trying to make a fool of him". He had an India accent.

scam, scam scam. never do business with this number. i may take legal action against them for harrassment. Anytime you need to check to see if its a scam go to google and key in the area code and then the phone number and it will pulll up the information. Thanks and have a blessed day.
Hi there apparently this indian guy is the same one who called me. but when i called back someone else answered but i couldnt understand them either.
Called me twice & then called my office asking to speak with a manager. I took his info and would not give him any of mine and told him to do what he had to but there was no money owed. Used the name of Jeff Foster & his supervisor is Steve Hart. I think I will just turn the tables and continue to harass him now until I get some answers. Same company he said he worked for was Adelson & Assoc located at 1000 Conn Ave, Washington, DC. Said he was represent Cash Adance USA. Number he callled from is 202-239-2148. I'd like to know who I can report this to so they cannot contact me anymore because it is very aggravating. They are a menace and need to be stopped. Someone who is naive can be taken in and in fear keep sending them money. It must be working or they wouldn't be calling so many people.
Received similar calls and told them that I was going to go to the authorities...never took out a payday loan. Threatened me and told me I should have my crimnal lawyer call them..They wouldn't provide details...told me that I had an outstanding payday loan that I did not pay from American Cash Advances. I know it is a scam, but the mf had my address. They are located in Wasshington, D.C. or at least that is the number that appears on my caller ID...Right after speaking to them I get a call from Medical Associates. Guys with Indian accents...when I call the number answering machine anwers and says "Michael Steven Davis" (attorney) and Adelson & Associates.
Well I keep getting these calls and Ive always assumed they were fraud this is really getting on my last nerve I'm investigating this they have all my info smh I hate these ppl!!!!!!!!
I have had a call from this number. Name was Steven Michael Davis told me I had to pay this money or I was going to jail and would lose my job. Other name on this call was Jeff Foster. I panicked and paid the $239 by Western Union. Then this week I got another call from 817-554-3539 from a Rickey Nunez, pretty sure none of these names are real now. What lawyer is in the office on a Saturday at 2 or 3 in the afternoon and will be in the office on Monday til 10pm. Wish I would have googled all this before I was out $239.
I was called on my cell phone several times. The man (foreigner and hard to understand) said his name was Steve .....he was a lawyer and demanded me to pay off a bill that I owed to Cash Advance. I was to pay him by money pack or wire the money to him to keep me from paying thousands to the courts. He said for me to call him once I have the money and he will explain to me how to send it. He only gave me a few weeks to come up with the money and because I'm so broke, I fortunately didn't come up with any money. Now he is calling my work and said that a sheriff will be up to arrest me. So I quit answering the phone and he called again and again at my work, demanding to talk to me and all the receptionists caught on, because he started telling him that he is the sheriff and he was coming to arrest me. Thank God! one of the receptionists work at the sheriff's station and called back to the dispatch and they said they had no officer with the name of Erick Leander, which is the name he gave the receptionist. Now I have an app on my phone to record this creep. And I plan to take him to my lawyer for harassing me. Don't give money
I keep getting calls from this I think he said edelson associates saying thata have a legal matter and I need to all them back so they can verify or I will be arrested.
They are harassing me at work as well.
I am receiving a call from someone who claims to be a law firm and saying that I have a legalmatterthatneeds to be resolved or they will have me arrested. Well I haven't received anything by mail just harassing calls. I can't hardly understand them. They said they're from some kind of associates. They are harassing me at work as well. Ty
I have gotten these calls approximately every 6 weeks for the past 2 years threatening me with arrest if I don't settle with them and give them money. I have yet to do anything and I haven't had a warrant served on me at all. I spoke with the local police and played the call for them, nothing they can do but told me not to give them anything especially over the phone.
I get the same call from this Michael White (foreign accent) several times a day. The one time I did answer the call, he proceeded to rattle off some Social Security number, address, etc informing me he was sending the authorities to "pick me up". He didn't believe that I wasn't "Robert Harrell". I'm still waiting for them to arrive.............
i had same thing .Ive changed my number and still got it . SAME THING ABOUT THE INVESTERGATION AND COP AND LOSING MY JOB . WELL NEEDLESS TO SAY HE GOT 1200.00 FROM ME . BUT NO MORE .
this has been happening for over a year, the call my cell and tell me they r a lawyer and they are going to have me prosecuted for fraud. That I am going to be arrested unless I pay them.

They've called tho morning, atty somebody with the same Indian accent, except he had my bfs social security number..... Odd. And said that within two days they will have a warrant and a summons for him.?
I just received a call from this number stating his name was atty Shawn somebody.He stated they were going to seen the police to my resident and have me arrested. He was india I really couldn't understand him. It was alot of noise in the back ground. They called about 6 times in a row.
Have called twice today representing a so called law firm threating to have another person arrested and file a lawsuit against them. The person they are calling for is not me. The person calling gives the name Jeff Foster. They are even threating to contact the persons employer and having the family arrested.
