I received the same call over and over from Kevin Watson with Winston & Associates claiming I owed $948.66 dollars from a pay day loan that was never paid; however, it was. Then proceeded to offer me and Out of Court Restitution w/ Total Credit Restoration to clear my credit. I have monitored my credit because I work for a Government agency and no such debt has ever been listed. This is obviously an enormous scam. Mr. Watson (Or so he says) stated the same thing, that I would be having charges filed on me, they would contact my employer, etc.
It is sad that such companies and/or scammers exist.
Caller tells me I'm being sued for fraud checks. No such ridiculous problem here. He's trying to scare people into sending them money. These people are the frauds and I'll call the police after this with the number.
They have done this to me so many times over the last few years...I keep calling them back repeatedly over and per til Jason or John or whatever name he is going by today gets mad....he tells me if I'm so smart to investigate before I accuse them of being a scam and that hell see me in court...I told him I hope his English was better in court lol. Word to the wise: all they are soon is trying to get you to say yes so they can record it and say that you gave them permission to access your bank account...9 times out of ten when you fill out an application online you usually enter a bank account...they Already have access but they screw you so that they say they had your permission!!! It's evil taking people's hard earned money that way and their number is always fake they are usually not even in the us cuz everytime over the years that they call me it's always a different number. If I were you don't bother answering it as if you do state that you know it's a scam and they'll get mad and leave you alone
nameless tired of threats
Someone keeps calling saying im going to be arrested or something could happen to me as they know where i work & live. I cant even understand what they are saying.
ITS A SCAM
THIS PERSON WITH THIS INDIAN ACCENT KEEPS CALLING ME THREATING ME SAYING HE IS GONNA CALL MY JOB, FAMILY & FRIENDS IF I DONT HANDLE THIS MATTER & IF I DONT HE IS GONNA FILE A CASE AGAINST ME & ISSUE A WARRENT OUT FOR MY ARREST!!! HIS NAME IS KEVIN CALLING FROM WASHINGTON DC THE # IS 202-239-8706!! HE CALLS EVERYDAY!!! ITS CLEARLY A SCAM & I WISH THESE CALLS WOULD STOP!!!!
I just received a call from this phone number claiming that there are three counts against me. Is this a real legitimate law firm or is this some type of scam?
I got a call today from a guy with a India accent or some crap from number (202)2398706. He said I owe some place called cash advance for a loan when I never even took one out. He started yelling at me and I yelled right back and he said there will be a warrant out for my arrest and if I'm on probation I need to let them know what's going on and to get a lawyer. So I called my lawyer and they said its a scam. He told me his name is Michael Davis so no one fall for this he is a damn loser and better not even call my phone back.
Block this number...
This is the third time a supposed debt collector has called my mom, this is a new number and is a total scam. The last time I had my husband call back and told him we wanted the case # that he supposably had and he wouldn't give us anything. They are saying they are are from Winston and Associates out of Wash Dc and said to call back "Kevin". Wish they could be stopped!
I have been receiving this phone calls recently and finally I was able to talk to this person name Kevin ,telling me that I will be soon arrested & losing my job and cursing over the phone .I did ask him their exact address and he hung up.Good luck!!!!
A man of middle eastern decent keeps calling me from this number .He states that there are legal actions going to be brought on me from his law office .He states his name is Attorney James Parker . none of the information he has on me is correct and he wants me to give him the correct information. If you can do something to stop this please do so other wise I will contact an attorney myself.
I just got a call on my cell from this Kevin Watson guy stating he was an attorney, then after he left a voicemail (can't talk on cell at work) he called my work phone number which is quite odd because I work witha big company and we all have seperate lines, but he got my number and told me my last four of my social which really freaked me out so I called my mom to tell her, and she looked up the number and told me it was a scam!! But I was terrified because I am only 19, and have never had a loan before so I didn't have a clue what he was talking about!! But I saved the threatening voicemail he left me, and also if a number like 916-287-3958 calls don't answer it, he is doing the same thing, he told me a sheriff was going to be at my job to arrest me the next day and wished me luck!! I think these people need to be stopped!!
Just got a call from this number. He asked me to let him finish his little spiel before I asked him any questions. After he finished he asked me if I had any questions. I told him that my husband was my attorney and he would want a copy of the affidavit that they were going to file against. He then said, "Your husband is your attorney?" When I said yes he told me, "In your f***ing dreams, retarded" and hung up the phone. I can't stand people like this. I do work for a litigation firm so I will be asking my boss what avenues I can take to make sure nothing like this happens again.
he called me and gave me the same spill i told him i didn't have a payday loan...he got pissed and told me i was going to jail that he would see me behind bars......i just called him back and cursed him out.....
They called me a month ago and did the same thing, but never wanted to send me documents.Then claimed to be calling the FBI to come get me the next day, guess what i'm still serving in the military..This is def a scam.They called again today and i confronted them and kept being rude with them.Told them it was a scam and he got quite...
I received a phone call on my cell number and also a call from thrteatening to arrest for a pay loan that i never received. He started to threaten me with the police and put a warrant out for my arrest. When I started to tell him that I never received a payday loaen on line for $$$.

Told him I quote would but after work. Never did call back to get infor for sending a money gram. will not call back. Told me that person that called me was a paralegal.
Meeshee and All Other Posters,
This is scam, they use VOIP. They threatened with jail, loss of my social security benefits, threatened loss of my job. This guy is an idiot, I am on SSI disability and have been for 12 years. I am trying to constantly get his number blocked, I refuse to change my number.
These are horrible, horrible people. I have filed a cmplaint with the FTC, called the police and sherrif's department as well.
OMG total scam - called them back after leaving me several messages - asked why they are calling my house - the idiot answered phone as attorney ??? I said you are not an attorney and why are you calling my house - he said point black "shut up bi*** - you know why and you will be arrested at work tommorrow - I asked again what you are calling for and where are you calling from you sound quite foreign to me? he said f*** you and hung up - so I called again and he answered as winston assoc now - not vincent - I told that and said you are a bunch of cons - scammers - as I can hear some other guy yelling at a person in the background - hung up again and now will not answer my calls
Got a call from a man who identified himself as atty kevin watson from winston and assoc i know exactly how they found me i applied for a loan that was not secured he had mostof the correct info except one important one that he got wrong he knew i had a loan out for a certain amount and threatened me and said i needed to send him money or else i would be prosecuted and go to jail
Its a scam.. give it back to them by telling them your taking them to court and you are filing a lawsuit on them !! They have no right to threaten .. FTC regulations don't allow collections or those assuming to be lawyers threaten people.. give it back to them
yes exact same thing
I just received this call and when i asked them who they were, why and where they were located, the person on the other line got pissed and said he was tuning me over to the police. I then took their number and reported it to my cell provider to block their number and also am reporting it to the BBB. When i told them that, they hung up.
SCAM SCAM SCAM
This man has been harassing me and threatening me that he is going to sue me if I do not pay an outstanding loan with Cash Advance. I never took out this loan and can't get him to stop calling.
I received a message from this company. I have received messages before. I have never used the company they mention. Report the call immediately to your local authorities (not that they can do much). There is no warrant out for your arrest. I spoke with Lawyer Kevin. What a joke, if he was a real lawyer he'd have a command of the english language beyond cursing at me. When I informed him that this was a scam, it was reported to my local authorities, and that if they were a real company they wouldn't legally provide the information they do on a message, "Lawyer" Kevin asked if he could say one thing. He told me to f*ck off... I guess the truth ticked him off.
I just got a call from the them today from this moron...seems everybody in that office speaks with a accent...mmmmm go figure. I bet their from overseas running a scam. I told him I was right here in DC and I was coming down to see him....
I got the call this evening from "Kevin Watson" as well, saying he represented Winston and Associates in Washington DC and that I stole money from a payday loan company. He said that I would have to pay over $8000 in fines and possibly spend 2-5 years in prison. When I asked him to mail me certified copies of the affidavit he became extremely billigerent and told me that "I have no right to tell him what to do and the documents will get there when he sends them." This guy is a scumbag and needs to be stopped!!
This guy calls my # says he is called kevin watson and that I am committed FEDERAL bank fraud. He will be contacting my job to get me fired and contacting the police. I hung up on him.
I am getting threatening calls on my cell phone, saying its a law office and need to pay them 300.00 plus, called my work harassing me, saying if I dont send green dot or western union they will drag me into court and goes on with a bunch of crap! Im pissed.....Can't even understand him.....
