I admit that I may in fact have a few payday loans that are still outstanding. As a result, I have unintentionally allowed myself to be scammed twice. In both instances it was very similar to the calls I have been getting. The "Collection Agency" threatened to have me arrested for fraud, and other things, and said that I owed them (in both instances) around $4-$5000. BUT, if I agreed, and if the representatives supervising attorney agreed then I could get away with only paying $500 (both times) I was told that upon payment the collectors would dismiss the case they had against me, and send me a statement indicating that the debt had been paid, but after not getting from them what they promised I decided to adopt the following policy. The last time I was scammed I asked who the creditor was, and the guy I spoke with told me it could be any one of several hundred companies, and that he did not have that information. Now, here is what I do, and it works some of the time. I call them after they have quit for the day, and leave a message on their voice mail. I identify myself, and give the case number if I have been given one. I then tell them that I have reason to believe that they are scam artists, but I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, and tell them that before I even CONSIDER paying this debt I need to have IN WRITING the name of the company I allegedly owe the debt to, and when the debt was incurred, and finally the amount of money we are talking about. Once I have that information, again in writing, I will think about it. Well guess what no one has stepped forward and sent me the information requested. This is stuff we have a legal right to. This clown has called me about six or seven times using different phone numbers. Yes, I did call him late last Saturday. But he calls me again. I say just don't let them push you around. Also, please don't concern yourself over threats to have you arrested. Most of the time they will be in a state other then yours, and even if they could convince their local police to get an arrest warrant, they wouldn't because you will be out of their jurisdiction, and they are not going to try and convince your local, police to get involved because even if a valid debt exists it's a civil matter, which precludes any arrest. As I said, if you have an outstanding debt it would better on your credit report, but if you are unable to pay then they will need to wait till you can.
Same thing here. I think I get a voice mail everyday from this guy. Seriously annoying. I have already submitted a complaint to the FTC and any other website. I hope you all do as well. Not sure what else I can do except ignore these calls 5 times a day.....or change my number. So sad and so annoying!!
Same as everyone here, JUSTIN DUMBROWSKI 210-625-3672, he is such an A** HOLE where he makes his living threatening people. I just wonder if we do the same to him and his family. Do the exact same threat as he does or his company ( illegal company ) back at them. Tell all your family and friends to call him the other people that work there.
What comes around goes around. Right. So let's all start calling the Pretrial Litigation most especially JUSTIN DUMBROWSKI and return that evil favor he has been doing to us. Let's see what they say about it. Again, tell all your family and friends to call 21625-3572.
They left a voicemail on my phone about some pre trial crap. Nice try scammers
Scam artists. Threats of being sued, have your attorney call this number. Really!!!!
This company, Pretrial Litigation or Litigation Inc, is a identity theft scam. They call and say that there will be a warrant for you arrest due to an unpaid payday loan and ask for all your information and payment for the loan. I knew this was a scam due to the fact that I do not have a job and have not ever had a payday loan in my life! They use scare tactics to try and get you to give them money. It seems that the norm that they ask for is $985 but please, please heed my warnings, do not give them any of your information or any money whatsoever!! They have been reported to the FTC and they have more then one number, the other number I know is 210-390-0070 and the name they give you for the company is Pretrial Litigation and the man's name is Justin Dombrowski. If this person does call you, please report them to the FTC so that they can be shut down before they take anyone's money. This is the same type of scam that was busted by the FTC last year and these people should be locked up just like the others!! Do not fall for their nasty ways and believe me, they will get very nasty with you on the phone to try and scare you!!!
I got the same call. After calling back they said I was going to be arrested for bank fraud? I told them they need to stop calling and then they asked if I wanted to speak to "their" lawyer. Some woman came on after a wait and told me to hurry up as she was due in court soon. I told her this was a scam, her reply, "you are scam". I called back a few times just to see what would happen, no answer first 3 times then someone picked up and immediately hung up. I don't understand why these people can't be stopped.
I received 2 messages today May 8, 2014 from a Justin Dumbrowski who said he was an attorney. He said if he did not hear from me or my attorney that I would waiving my rights and he would submit my case. He is from San Antonio Texas. He didn't say what company he was from but just that he was an attorney.

December 07, 2010 FBI National Press Office
? filed under: Press Release
The Internet Crime Complaint Center has received many complaints from victims of payday loan telephone collection scams. Callers claim the victim is delinquent in a payday loan and must repay the loan to avoid legal consequences. The callers purport to be representatives of the FBI, Federal Legislative Department, various law firms, or other legitimate-sounding agencies. They claim to be collecting debts for companies such as United Cash Advance, U.S. Cash Advance, U.S. Cash Net, and other Internet check-cashing services.
According to complaints received from the public, the callers have accurate data about victims, including Social Security numbers, dates of birth, addresses, employer information, bank account numbers, and the names and telephone numbers of relatives and friends. How the fraudsters obtained the personal information varies, but in some cases victims have reported they completed online applications for other loans or credit cards before the calls started.
The fraudsters relentlessly call the victim?s home, cell phone, and place of employment. They refuse to provide any details about the alleged payday loans and become abusive when questioned. The callers have threatened victims with legal actions, arrests, and, in some cases, physical violence if they do not pay. In many cases, the callers harass victims? relatives, friends, and employers.
I have received two calls in the last two days from Justin Dumbrowski stating a case has been filed against me and was going to be arrested..........maybe his name Dumb is what he thinks we are. He has threatened me, and then right before he was hanging up on me he said in the background "go get (and then my name) " I called back and someone by the name of Gloria who was at the switchboard wouldn't put me through to Justin or Richard or whoever just that I was going to be arrested today and before I could say anything else she hung up on me too. I am so sick of this. How do these peolpe keep getting away with this.
Saying I had judgement against me if I did don't u think I would know about it thy don't call you scammers get these call all the time bs block there number.
I Have had the same problem I called back and asked for there information they declined to give it to me and hung up the phone I spoke to a receptionist named GLORIA and a debt collector RICHARD DAVENPORT I asked to then have all the information regarding the accounts that i had "past due" and they were unable to give me any information. I called my bank to see if there were any problems with my account and nothing was reported. the number that called me was 2106253672 these people are low life idiots be careful.
Thank You Everyone for the post they were helpful!
I have been receiving calls from this # for about 4 yrs now, same b***s*** and they got violent w messages and actually made a police report ... nothing was done of course cause they cannot be tracked because the # is bounced everywhere. Another # is 210 762 5990. They are scams and nothing more.
I got 2 calls from this Justim Dumbrowski today from 2 different numbers and when I called the first one, 210-390-0070, back the same guy that left the message for me answered and said it wasn't him that it was his compliance department and he put me on hold, then the same guy picked up and said he was another guy, Justin Dumbrowski, seriously, do they think we are all stupid, I could tell it was the same guy! Then he started asking me questions, like if my email was this email or my social was this, and I wouldn't answer any of them. I told him no they were not because on each one they had some slight mistake too them. Then I told him I was going to report him to the Fair Trade Commission, which is what we are told to do, and he said that they were putting a warrant out for my arrest for fraud against my pre-paid card! I informed him that in my state they do not lock people up for things like this and he told me to wait and see! I informed him I would be waiting for them, no problem and started laughing at him! He just kept going and going and I told him to have a nice day scamming people and hung up on him, then 2 hours later I get a call from the 210-625-3672 and I let it go to voice mail. I hope no one else gets a call from him and gives them any of their information!
