Caller claimed to be "Investigator Robert Warren" and advised there was something being filed "with the county".  Nothing specific, and he had the wrong name.  A lot of pretend legal jargon, etc.  Called the number back and it went to a general voicemail box.

Caller said she was "Investigator Elisa Banks" and advised a civil complaint had been filed in some county.  Could not understand what she was saying.  A lot of so called legal misreprentation.  Left an affidavit case number and the number 240-696-1779 and 240-482-8284 and asked I return the call.  From what I have read, this is illegal to use threatening tactics.  I saved it on my phone.

Received a call from "Special Investigator" Elisa Banks. We were not home to answer the call, but she left a message stating that she was calling in regard to a legal case where we were being summoned as a respondent. She did not say who she was representing or give any other identifying information. Just a phone number with instructions to call immediately and refer to the case number she provided. This was very suspicious to us, so I went online and Googled her number and found that I was right to be suspicious. We did not call her back and nor will we ever. If someone needs to get in touch with me about a legal matter, then they need to send me the summons by mail! Don't fall for this scam!

Received a call from 240-482-8384 telling me to call re: a civil complaint where I am the respondent. They left a case number also. Got suspicious because the phone number is in Maryland and we are in CA. Googled the number and got to this site.
What can be done about this scams? The number is a land line in Bethesda, MA, and could be connected to a name.
Is there any legal action that we can take?
Thanks.

Received a call from a person claiming to be an investigator "Anita Banks" at 240-482-8284.  Person claimed I was named in a civil lawsuit from the county.  Got suspicious and Googled the number and got this site.  I called back and asked a lot of questions and ate popcorn in the phone.  The person said I was rued for eating in their ear and I asked them why they were scamming people and they hung up.  
We called the FL State Attorney Generals office and they said to call MD State Attorney Generals office.  MD said to write a letter and we did.  I have passed this number out to  my fiends and neighbors and we have be taking turns calling the scammers back to give them a hard time!

Good Luck!!

Elisa Banks called us at 240-235-5614. Same scam. If legit, they would leave the company name.

My roommate just got a call from a Legal Investigator claiming that the call was in response to an issue with an ex-boyfriend of mine... harrassed her and accused her of lying to them by saying she was not me!  Also accused her of standing in the way of a federal investigation and that federal charges would be pressed against her!  
Not sure what is going on with this..

One left a message for me today. from number 240-482-8284. from a Lonny Freeman. Looking for a Susan *****, and they said they had just talk to me (amanda ******) witch was untrue. I freeked, I didnt know what was going on. I am so glad I found this. Because for a minute I thought I was going to jail. I had to call back 3 time just to figure out what was going on and exactly who they were looking for. Finally I got a hold of someone that would listen to me and not hang up on me. They finally took my name off of this other persons case, but Wow what drama.     I just wanted to leave my comment. Please I hope no one gets scammed by these people any more.

I got a call from Special Investigator Chris Johnson. I just picked up my land line messages so this message must have been left in late June.

She said something about a civil case and left the 240 number.

I googled it and got to this site.  I have not called the number she left?

Is this a scam?  what kind of scam?
Yes, it's a scam.

Christine, see messages above. It is definitely, certainly, without a doubt a scam. As you can see, they left you a message in June, and nothing bad has happened. That's because they're crooks. DO NOT return their phone number, even to tell them to stop calling -- they'll just verbally abuse you on the phone. Save the message and report the phone call to the websites listed in the above post.

Just got a call from Special investigator Carla James at 240-483-4254, same method, Affidavit# and civil complaint in which I am a respondant and summoned to appear.  Did not and will not call her back, unless it's to harass her for scamming people.

This is absolutly crazy. I received a call from a young lady named carla james saying I was being investigated and a civil complaint was being filed against me. She asked for an Affidavit # which I knew nothing about. When I asked her what it was concerning she said that I wrote a bad check in 1990 in Florida for a Mazda automobile.  Mind you, I have never been to Florida and never bought a Mazda or bounced any checks. The moment I told her this she hung up on me.  Please report these people, I am!

Caller from this number called a relative, trying to locate my husband.  Said he was "Inspector Rosenthal" calling about a civil case (gave a fictitious number).  Relatives got in touch with us through other relatives from across the country and I looked this number up on the web.  I found this and other sites claiming that this is a phishing expedition.  I believe it, since we just have been applying for a house loan and, no doubt, parts of our information have been insecure.  I will definitely spread the word.

My nephew got a call in CA stating that Investigator Gina St John was looking for me and that this was regarding a civil matter in MD. I don't live in MD. Said if I did not contact them that an arrest warrant was going to be issued. I did reverse ph lookup and of course no company to be found. I've heard of this scam before, so I looked up ph# on google and it lead me to this site. People, be aware that there are scammers out there to get your cc info or bank info to wipe you out. A legitimate company will be listed and secondly, if this was a legit civil matter I would have received a summons from the court. DON'T BE FOOLED!!!

Got a similar call from "special investigator" Tema Anderson. The number she left was 770-755-1384 and the number called from was 770-872-0952 (each registered in some part of GA but unlisted or unpublished). They used my correct name in asking for me (in the voice mail msg). Same as the others here - she claimed a civil complaint was being filed on me, something about "personal claim" and gave me a court case number. Stated I was a respondent and "must appear." Also threatened that if I didn't phone back in 24 hours "additional cases would be filed."

This is completely bogus and certainly someone's attempt at trying to sounds like law or court officials (which in my view would be completely illegal, likely criminal). They give this bogus court case number but a case must have BEEN filed to have a number (and they claim one is "being filed"). I don't know their purpose, but I know it's complete BS.

My mom received a call from a woman claiming to be a police officer saying that they needed to talk to me about an "assault case" being processed against me. She didn't give her name but left a contact number (770-783-1963), and said to call within 24 hours or else I would be arrested. When I tried to call the original number that she actually called from (770-872-0952) it was a disconnected number.

My dad called the 770-783-1963 number with the "case number" they gave us and then they CHANGED the story saying that it was now regarding my dad and not me. When my dad asked who the guy was the guy claimed he was a "sheriff." Who then transferred my dad over to an "accountent" to set up a payment plan giving them his bank account and social security number. If my dad failed to pay them they threatened to have him arrested. When asked the name of their company they would never give a straight anwser.

LOOK OUT FOR THESE NUMBERS!!!! They found my old address, my parents address, our full names and numbers! This is a SCAM!!! Never give anyone your bank account or social security number over the phone even if they claim to be a police officer.

Called and identified herself as carla James, I had to listen to it 3 times to get the name, she talked so fast.  She claimed to be a special investigator and that I was named as respondent, also gave a affidavit number.  It all sounded very official, until I checked the number on google and found out is was a fraud.
