I did receive a call from this Andrew Smith @ 206 548 4485. It's totally a fraud. I've been doing a little investigation and I found out that no existing company nor person. Person keeps changing his name with heavy Middle Eastern accent. He goes by the name Joseph, Justin, etc. Tells you that a company is taking you to court and need to settle it. Before it goes to court. Won't give you any info. Who, What, When...? Does a double talk ....So please do not answer....

He told me the same crap about his company and he was a criminal investigator from Central Investigation of Finance. I have reported him to the Federal Trade Commissions website and to local authorities.

Same thing happened to me today.  Claimed his name was David Leon with the "Central Investigation of Finance" (only his accent was thicker than the Taliban) and that I was going to be arrested tomorrow!  Something about fraud, some payday loan, and similar BS to what the ppl above stated.  When I told him to slow down, what is this about, I have never taken a payday loan, etc, he, in essence, answered NOTHING and just began to scream louder and get more angry and demanding.  Also he had threatened me earlier that the call is being recorded so I should not raise my voice or get upset.  Something to that effect.  Craziest phone call I ever got, right there.  I told him I was calling my local authorities, and he got livid, said he will process the inevitable arrest, etc, immediately.  I then DID call the police.  When they called the # THEY got hung up on...but not before asking if it was ME that had called them.  Kinda scary group of scumbags.  Be careful.  Give these jagoffs NOTHING.  ...and DON'T have a heart attack in the process, as I initially almost did :o

LONG RUNNING FAKE DEBT COLLECTOR SCAM - ALL OVER INTERNET AND NEWS

MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS TO REPORT THEM TO ALL THE GOVERNMENT AGENCIES.  When they call back - tell them you have reported them and their SCAM to the federal law enforcement.  That is the only way to stop the calls.  They will not stop as long as they think they may be able to get money from you..  

Fake Debt Collectors ? Terrorizing Consumers

http://www.wvago.gov/internetloanscam.cfm
Attorney General Darrell McGraw took the extraordinary step today of warning the public about a band of scam artists making threats to consumers who allegedly obtained Internet payday loans in West Virginia and across the nation. The consumers they threaten never obtained a loan at all or paid it off years ago.

Internet payday loans are short-term loans or cash advances, usually for 14 days, made over the Internet via interactive web sites and secured by an agreement authorizing debits of the loan and all fees owed from the consumer?s checking account. These loans typically charge interest rates ranging from 600-800 APR and are unlawful in West Virginia.

The scam artists, who speak English with a foreign accent, call themselves ?U.S. National Bank,? ?Federal Investigation Bureau,? ?United Legal Processing? and numerous other phony names. They refuse to disclose real names and addresses and are believed to be operating ?off the grid? from homes, automobiles, or from off shore locations or foreign countries, including India. Since the scammers have kept themselves purposely well hidden, thus far no law enforcement agencies have succeeded in locating or shutting them down.

The scammers typically pose as law enforcement officers, investigators, lawyers, and bankers and threaten consumers that they will be arrested for ?bank fraud? or other fictitious crimes unless money is wired immediately. They simultaneously scare and confuse consumers by using meaningless legalese gobbledygook phrases such as, ?We are downloading warrants against you? or ?We are filing an affidavit against you.? Consumers who don?t immediately fall for the scam are warned, ?Only God can help you now.?

The scammers almost always call consumers at work several times a day, and tell their supervisors, ?Your employee has committed fraud and is about to be arrested.? Such threats have proven unsettling even to the most savvy consumers and employers who suspect the calls are fraudulent.

Attorney General McGraw stated, ?Ordinarily my office protects consumers from fraudulent activities by seeking injunctions in court. But legal action cannot be taken until the scam artists can be located. Even then, it is unlikely that the persons behind the fraudulent calls and extortionist threats would obey a court order. In this case, the consumer?s best defense is to be armed with the knowledge of the scam so that all demands for money can be resisted, despite the false but scarey threats of arrest.?

McGraw added, ?Because the fraudsters make a special point of calling consumers repeatedly at work, employers must understand that the consumers are innocent victims of a criminal enterprise and cannot stop the calls from coming. I also wish to assure the citizens of West Virginia that my office will continue to do everything possible to locate and shut down the outlaw debt collectors.?

More information about this fraudulent debt collection scheme is available at the Attorney General?s website, www.wvago.gov/internetloanscam. Any consumers who have been threatened by these persons or wish to file a complaint about another consumer matter may do so by calling the Consumer Protection Hot Line, 1-800-368-8808, or by obtaining a complaint form from the Attorney General?s web site.

It's a debt collection scam. And all their threats are false and illegal.
This is a very active group of scammers, many of whom are calling from India (and probably other countries) and are in cahoots with a group of American pay day loan scammers. They attempt to extort money from consumers with a myriad of false and illegal threats, and alternately pose as debt collectors, federal and state law enforcement officers, lawyers and bankers. Their trademark is to use meaningless legalese gobblygook phrases like "We are downloading warrants against you" or "We are filing an affidavit against you." Another trademark phrase is to threaten the consumer with something like this ridiculous phrase: "If you don't pay then only God can help you."
Typical of many financial scams of this variety, they usually demand payment via Western Union or MoneyGram or credit card. They use any number of phony names such as US National Bank, Federal Investigation Bureau, US Legal Investigation Bureau, Hopkins Law Office, United Legal Processing, Morgan Associates, United Pay Services, National Processing, White Collar Crime Unit and many more.  These criminals also use many phone numbers from many area codes; they're probably using caller-id spoofing software and/or VoIP to disguise their real location.
The main thing to remember is that anytime someone calls you demanding money to prevent your arrest, or demanding your lawyer's name so they can sue you, it is ALWAYS a scam. No debt collector (let alone criminals posing as debt collectors) has the authority to have anyone arrested for anything. (And it's illegal to them to threaten such a thing.) And since these foreign dirtbags routinely impersonate law enforcement, it's also important to remember that American law enforcement officers aren't in the business of debt collection.  (Debt is a civil, not a criminal, matter.)
The bottom line is, these are criminals trying to steal your money.
A consumer posting a complaint about these same scammers at http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-718-831-7157 notes that 718-831-7157 is associated with an India-based "outsourcing" telephone bank.  Though a reverse search on WhitePages.com shows that 718-831-7157 is an unlisted land line in New York City, information on Debtbuyers.Com shows that that number is used by India-based Intellisourze. (Source: http://www.debtbuyers.com/debtbuyers.asp ) My guess is that it's a VoIP phone number.
This is another piece of the puzzle that fits in perfectly with other information about this scam. There are some reports on 800Notes that have suggested that the crooks behind this offshore scam are also the crooks behind the notorious Bass/Ellis Crosby & Assoc./States Predisposition scams in Florida and Georgia. The interesting thing is that the number of complaints on here about the US National Bank/US Legal Investigation/Federal Investigation scam skyrocketed *after* April 7, 2008 when Florida obtained a $1.3 million judgment against Ted Ellis Crosby, shutdown his operations and barred him from ever conducting debt collections in Florida (Read http://myfloridalegal.com/newsrel.nsf/newsrel ... 5257424005858A6 ) There's certainly a good chance that the crooks placing these calls from India are doing so on behalf of the American crooks behind the Crosby/Bass/States Predisposition scams.

Though scam calls from these crooks have been going on long before May 8, the frequency of complaints about these calls increased considerably after Crosby was shut down in early April.
This is conjecture, but appearances suggest that Crosby and company were originally running a two-pronged payday loan scam operation -- with some calls being made from Jacksonville, Florida and other calls being made from a phone bank in India (and possibly other countries); then, after the Florida Attorney General shut down the Crosby scams in Florida, the Crosby crooks transferred most of their scam efforts to the India phone bank.
If you are targeted by these criminals, be sure to report them to all the following federal and state law enforcement agencies (most of which you can do online or over the phone):
1.    The U.S. Secret Service is responsible for protecting the country's financial infrastructure and payment systems from international and domestic threats. Call or write your local Secret Service field office to alert them to the details of this attempted extortion. The addresses and phone numbers for the local Secret Service field offices are listed at http://www.secretservice.gov/field_offices.shtml or in your phone book.
2.    Alert the FBI at https://tips.fbi.gov Be sure to tell the FBI that you are being targeted by extortionists over the phone. And if the crooks claim to be law enforcement or lawyers, officers of the court or bankers, be sure to include that information in your report.
3.    File a complaint with your local police. Most police departments will take a report over the phone.  Be sure to tell them that you're being targeted by an extortionist and give them all the details.
4.    File a complaint your state's attorney general, the contact information for whom is at www.wvago.gov
5.    File a complaint online with The Federal Trade Commission at https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/FTC_Wizard.aspx?Lang=en
If these crooks call back, promise them nothing, pay them nothing and tell them nothing other than that you know they're a scam and that you've reported them to law enforcement. (And be sure to report them to all the agencies above each time they call you.)
By the way, here's just a small sample of numbers used by this particular group of scammers. Read the reports and you'll see the same pattern time and again -- phony organization names, thick foreign accents, and oddly worded threats that are so melodramatic and ridiculous that it's laughable:

Scam alert: Bogus debt collectors
By Leslie McFadden ? Bankrate.com
Monday, Aug. 3
Posted 2 p.m.
Bankrate reporter Leslie McFadden contributed this entry.
This scam isn't technically about credit cards, but it is scary enough to post a warning. The Better Business Bureau issued an alert today saying consumers across the country are getting phone calls from bogus debt collectors claiming default on a payday loan. Of course, the consumer needs to pay a large fee to avoid arrest -- as much as $1,000.
The caller poses as a lawyer, and may threaten extradition to face trial if the consumer doesn't pay up immediately.
What makes these calls alarming -- and perhaps convincing -- is that the perpetrators reference the consumer's personal information, such as the person's Social Security number, driver's license number, previous bank account numbers, home address -- even personal references.
"The amount of information they have is really troubling," says BBB spokeswoman Alison Southwick. She adds that the amount of data points to a possible security breach.
Spread the word to your friends and family: Don't give out personal or financial information to an unknown caller. Scammers can spoof Caller ID to display different numbers, so trust your instincts over technology.
The BBB offers these tips:
?    Ask the debt collector to provide official documentation which substantiates the debt.
?    Do not provide or confirm any bank account, credit card or other personal information over the phone until you have confirmed the legitimacy of the call.
?    File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission online if the caller is abusive, uses threats or otherwise violates federal telemarketing laws or the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
?    File a complaint with the Better Business Bureau online if you believe a debt collector is trying to scam you.

Debt Collector
This scam has been going on for well over a year, now and has been recognized as such by the BBB:

Chicago, IL ? August 5, 2009 ? The Better Business Bureau is issuing an alert about phony debt collectors that are calling consumers nationwide and claiming that they have defaulted on a payday loan and will be arrested if they don?t pay immediately. Claiming to be lawyers, the scammers say they are with the ?Financial Accountability Association? or the ?Federal Legislation of Unsecured Loans? and are equipped with a disconcerting amount of personal information about their potential victims.

?Because the scammers have so much information about potential victims, the BBB is concerned that this may be the result of a data breach,? said Steve J. Bernas, president & CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving Chicago and Northern Illinois. ?Thousands of people may have had their personal information compromised, and given the scammers? tactics, it appears that those who have previously used payday loan services could be particularly at risk.?

According to reports received by the BBB and posted online, the scammers accuse the victim of defaulting on a payday loan and claim they are being sued. The phony debt collector threatens that, if the victim doesn?t pay as much as $1,000 immediately via wire or by providing bank account or credit card numbers, he or she will be arrested and extradited to California within the hour to stand trial. The scammers often may have the victim?s Social Security, old bank account numbers or driver?s license numbers as well as home addresses, employer information and even the names of personal friends and professional references.

The BBB offers the following advice to consumers if they receive a suspicious telephone call about an outstanding debt:
* Ask the debt collector to provide official documentation in writing which substantiates the debt.
* Do not provide or confirm any bank account, credit card or other personal information over the phone until you have confirmed the legitimacy of the call.
* Review recent copies of your credit reports to ensure that the alleged debt is not affecting your credit. Consumers can do this for free once every 12 months, and can find more information here: http://www.ftc.gov/freereports
* Under the Federal Trade Commission's Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, debt collectors may not harass, oppress, or abuse any person while attempting to collect a debt.
* A debtor may be contacted between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. only and can be contacted at work unless instructed not to.
* File a complaint with the FTC online if the caller is abusive, uses threats or otherwise violates federal telemarketing laws.
* File a complaint with BBB online at www.bbb.org if you believe a debt collector is trying to scam you.

HEY PEOPLE, DON'T PAY THESE GUYS!  GET SMART, BEFORE YOU PAY ANYONE ANYTHING EVEN IF YOU THINK YOU OWE, MAKE SURE IT IS A REPUTABLE COMPANY. DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE YOU SEND YOUR MONEY....THEIR MAIN TACTIC IS TO CATCH YOU OFF GUARD AND SCARE YOU...AND KNOW YOUR LAWS, YOU CANNOT BE ARRESTED FOR OWING MONEY.....THERE IS NO DEBTORS PRISON IN THE UNITED STATES.

I got the same calls for 3 months, I didn't answer but a guy with a Accent left some very threatening messages and said if I didn't call  him back all he could do was wish me good luck.  When I finally called him, he feed me some bull about how I owed the US national bank all this money and I needed to wire him 1500.00 or I would be arrested in 2 days.  Only he could stop the arrest.  Well I knew that was a lie, I didn't owe anyone anything except the electric company and they don't operate this way.  So I called him a fiiiing lier and he started yelling and became irate.  Now that was funny, I laughed at him and he hung up.  A month later he called again and started reading off of a paper the same old crap, I said Bullcrap and he said, you do what you want to do and I said tell them to come and arrest me and he hung up.

Received a call from 810671221. The man (with a heavy accent) is obviously calling from overseas, claiming that I need to call him back immediately or "bad things will happen". I don't intend on calling him back. The connection was so bad I could not make out a name. I'm sure this is a scam.

This guy will not stop calling me. I know it's a scam, but I'm going to have to change my number because in the last hour he has called over 30 times.

I unfortunately have gotten the same calls, scared to death because this has never happened to me before I paid them.  This was about a month ago. Now just recently I have been getting calls again to pay them.  The "Supervisor" as he calls himself is Alfred Resario.  Leaves messages to call him at 206-548-4438.  I did alittle research of my own because even when I paid them I did not use my own account. I purchased a prepaid debit from walmart so after they withdrew the money they couldnt take more because that was all I loaded on the card.  I reviewed my transactions on this card and the company that withdrew my payment was a Binish INC which is a service provider for ppl that want to sell their products through them or marketing.  So if this was a ligitamate company that I was paying I would assume that their info would be attached to the payment when I would look it up.  I need more information on them, which I will continue to look up, so I can call this company and have these peoples account closed for scamming and fraud.  If anyone has anymore info on them that I can use please post it on here.  Thanks!

Was called at work on 8/18/09 about a suit that was being put against me. As soon as I heard his voice I became wary of the call his accent was extremly thick and he did not have real socail skills. Then he goes on too say I owe Cash Advance money... So I am like what cash advance and he says ...I am getting to that...which mad me automatically think he was reading from something and that made me even more suspcious then after a couple of min I say hey" I cannot understand you may I speak to someone" then he gives the phone to another man he is a little easier to understand but still is rude and not professional at all. Once I got the info from him I told them this is a mistake and then hang up. After a while he calls back and says within three businesss days the police will come to my job and pick me up that is when I lost it and went off on him I knew it was I bs. I had another company call me about a $1,000 gift card and they had the same accent which makes me believe they are all from overseas and running scams /

I received a call from this man claiming to be James Keegan. I had not answered any of the calls he has made to me but after the 3rd voicemail of not being able to understand what he is saying I decided to call the number.  He did not identify a company when he answered and when I asked for the name of the company he didn't want to give it to me.  Once he finally did say Central Investigations I hung up without giving my name.  He called right back and I still did not identify myself and he said that if I didn't call back within a few minutes I would be arrested.  I turned this into my local police.

The caller told me I was going to court on felony charges and I had to pay within the next hour. He was rude. I spoke with someone named Andrew Wilson and Eddie Guerro, both with middle eastern accents. They say the name of the company is CSI - Cental Investigation

I received a call also, giving me 30 minutes to pay on a "loan". I filed a complaint with the BBB and the FBI. I was told by the so called loan companies he listed - yes I called them all. That this was a scam.

I just received the same call from a Derrick Smith saying i owed him movey that he was with some Center for something crime, very very hard to understand (Indian or Pakastanian), the call came from overseas, and since my father in law is overseas  I thought it may be him. WRONG...I kept telling him I couldn't understand him which just made him mad!  he told me to call him back at 206-548-4438 but I decided to look the number up to see who he really was...and BOY AM I GLAD I DID. Apparently, he's been trying to call my mother at work too telling her the same thing. SO I made sure to tell them not to answer it and NOT TO VERIFY ANY INFORMATION!!! He told me if i didn't call him back before 10 am they were taking me to court. I'm just glad I found this site first!

My sister is also receiving these calls from a man with an accent claiming to be Andrew Smith, they insist they are investigating criminal activity on her and need her to call them immediately when she calls the 206 548 4438 it sounds like a fax beep. The number 810671221 also appears on her caller id.

I got another call this morning from 810671221, that is not a legitimate number.  I did call these people back yesterday after getting so many calls in a row and then getting called on my job.  I asked the same questions as all of you; who is the payday loan through; fax or e-mail me some type of proof that this is a legitimate case and he just kept telling me that if I pay them a certain amount today then he can forward me all the information that I need.  I have also closed my bank accounts and reopened new ones because I've had SEVERAL fraud activities on my previous account from applying to payday loans online.  This is my advise to ANYONE who is reading this.  DO NOT APPLY TO PAYDAY LOANS ONLINE.  You are subject to all types of people and most of these places are scams.  Most of us try to get quick help because we are in some type of financial issue and are needing help....It's a shame that this happens especially when your already having hard times.

I received a message on my work phone and on my cell phone from someone with a strong accent telling me they were calling about a legal matter.  My dad also got a call, and this individual threatened him, told him he was in a lot of trouble, etc.  I did a reverse look up on him and it is unlisted.  I paid to get the address information and have an address of 219 West St., Leavenworth, WA 98826.  810671221 is what showed up on my caller id when this person called, but they said to call 206-548-4438.  I am not calling this person back and have told my dad and sister not to talk to him because it is a scam.  No legitimate business is going to have an unlisted number.

since I recieved my calls from these people I have closed my bank accounts and reopened new ones. Also my brother called and told me they had left a message on my moms phone. He was worried if I was okay. They also called his house. They were supposed to call me back today for so called payment arrangements which will not happen. They never called. Also I have payed all places I have this sort of thing with so when I told the guy so, he demanded to know who. But would not tell me how much or who to. This was instant red flags to me. Has anyone did the reverse phone directory on them. I don't have the funds available myself to pay for this because they are unlisted. Another Flag most all businesses are listed. Just venting. Thankyou
