My husband is currently dealing with this jerk right now. He DID take out a loan, but the loan was paid in full. The Indian guy said his SSN was under investigation cause it didn't match his information and they wanted $490 to close the loan account (which was already closed at this time). After we contacted our bank to make sure our loan payments had gone through, we called the number back to inform him the account was paid in full, to which he said he knew nothing of the payments going through but he'd take a settlement of $250. So glad we saw this page. We'll definitely straighten it out now that we know it's a scam.
I was going to get a payday loan, but cancelled it and never signed anything. The guy said I never paid the loan back, and I never got it in the first place! He got really ugly on the phone and threatened me. Said there was going to be a warrant served on me for the money! Now I guess I have to change my number, and my e-mail!
i reeived a call from 281-5495173. a man with a heavy indian accent said his name was David an atorney. he said I wass being investigated for a payday loan back in january and i would be arrested. I know nothing about the loan. He did have some information. when I told him my attorney would contact him is promptly hung up.
I ALSO RECIEVED A CALL FROM THIS NUMBER. HE TOLD ME HE WAS WITH A LAW FIRM AND THAT MY SSN WHICH ENDS IN 7379 WAS BEIN INVESTIGATED FOR SOME CASH ADVANCE LOAN THAT I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT. THE NUMBERS THAT HE CLAIMED WAS MY SSN IS ACTUALLY THE LAST DIGITS OF MY CELL PHONE!! WHICH HE CALLED ME ON!!. HE ASKED IF I HAD MY LAWYER PRESENT. I SAID NO, SO HE PRETENDED TO PUT ME ON HOLD NOT KNOWING THAT I COULD STILL HEAR THE OTHER MAN IN THE BACKGROUND STILL TALKING. HE CAME BACK TO THE PHONE PRETENDING TO BE SOMEONE ELSE. WHEN I SAID I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT AND I STARTED TO RAISE MY VOICE. HE SAID WE ARE GOING TO SUPENA YOU !!! THEN HE HUNG THE PHONE UP IN MY FACE!
I got a call from this number also. They left a message. The guy had a heavy accent. Sounded middle eastern. Said he was from a law firm in Houston, TX and said I had to call them back because there is a lawsuit against me and that my social security is in jeopardy. I have no idea what it is about. I have never been to TX. and I do not collect Social security. Plus I have only had this cell number for just over a month. Weird!!!!
I received a voice mail from 281-549-5173. It was a man with a heavy Indian accent stating my social security number is under investigation and they are (couldn't understand name) from Houston Law firm. I was demanded to call back now or I will be prosecuted. I called the phone number back. The same man with the Indian voice answered. He asked for my full name and social security. I only gave him my first name and asked who he was, what it was for, why the threats? Do not threaten me like that. He said, he could not talk to me without my attorney present -screaming at me. Saying if I do not give him my name/social security # to verify who I am, I will get arrested and charges brought against me that I am already under investigation. First off,I know I have not done anything wrong to fear of this crap. I told him he is violating the law with those threats. Who is he and he will not have my information. He seemed to have my information he said. I said, then I don't need to tell you who I am and my social security number if you won't identify yourself or the matter at hand. If you already have my info you don't need to hear it from me. He kept saying I was going to be arrested, my social security number is under investigation. I then had my attorney call him and speak to him. He gave my attorney the run around saying my attorney was make believe, I'm getting arrested. The Indian voice refused to state which law firm he was representing (there is no such Houston Law Firm) and refused to give my attorney what the information was being charged for. I told the fake jerk to send it to me in writing if he is legit. He called my attorney a bunch of names and then threatened my attorney on the phone as well. He would keep hanging up on my attorney. My attorney would repeatedly call him back. Then guy kept calling my attorney an a@@hole and is suing my attorney that he is going to jail too that he was going to track my attorney down and beat him up. This guy, if you get a phone call from him he is clearly not legit. IF it was a collection agency or whoever they are, they would identify them selves with no hesitation. Without threats, without harassment etc. DO NOT GIVE YOUR IDENTITY TO THESE MORONS. Tell them to send it to you in writing. I have not received anymore phone calls after my attorney speaking to them thus far. And I have not received anything in writing.....
Guy with heavy Hispanic accent left message on answering machine. I could barely understand his English speech. Said he was Al Williams with Houston Law Firm and that if I or my attorney didn't contact him there would be legal action taken by them regarding social security. Obvious scumbags trying to scam the elderly.
In the 800notes choices for type of call, why isn't there a category for scammers?
I have gotten calls from them as well saying that they are calling from a Houston Law Firm. But when asked for a number of other information the person I was speaking to go upset, I also do not thing this is legit. I am research material he said and sent now.
Yes, I got a call from them too. Who are they and what do they do? I don't think they're legit.
