Some guy buy the name of Bob Hernandes call me and left a message, that I need to call back with attorney in formattion. They claim that charges are being brought against me in the State of California
This people are scammers. They threaten you with scare tactics. They are based in India. They will change their phone #s often. they use throw away phones and virtual phone #s. They are not from a law office. Do not call them back!!
Same guy called me... Bob Fernandez. He was apparently very Indian, so I called him out on it. I had to tell him to hush up a few times, and then he just pissed me off. These scams are amazing. This dick even called my work......unreal....................
I received a call, at my place of employment, on March 7th, from an Indian woman who identified herself as "Tisha Williams". She stated that she was calling from "Customer Affairs & Business Regulations" and stated that a lawsuit had been filed against my social security number and asked if I would hold the line for an Officer. I asked her for a phone number to call her back. When I called back 10 minutes later, an Indian woman answered the phone and when I asked for Tisha Williams, she stated that Tisha had left for the courthouse and she asked me for the phone number that was dialed to reach me. When I gave her the phone number, she identified me by name and stated that I had been charged with (3) counts of fraud, identity theft and check cashing and asked me to have my lawyer call her back as a suit was being filed against my social security number. When I asked her who had filed the suit against me and for how much, she stated that it was for a cash advance loan of $300 in December of 2010, which I never took out. She wouldn't give me the name of the lender and began to threaten me and when I asked where she was calling from, she yelled and said that I needed to contact the courts in Los Angeles and hung up in my face.
On March 8, they called me at my work number (didn't write down her name, but she had a VERY THICK Indian accent) and stated that I needed to call them back and that I MUST NOT disregard the phone call. She also went on to say that if I or my lawyer didn't call them back, then I will have to deal with the consequences that are coming to me and all they can do is wish me luck. Really? What a bunch of bull.
I received a call at home, work & cell phone. Woman said she was Shelly Medina and to call back. Indif & was told it was a law office nd a suit was being filed against me on 3 counts. It was from Cash Advance Bank for a payday loan I supposedly didn't pay back. I called him out by saying I knew he was scamming me and ihe started shouting & hung up. I received a call from a different # on Saturday from Toronto for the same thing.
Indian scam artist
Received today....said if I or my attorney didn't call, that she could no longer help me, and all she could say was good luck LOL wow!
I have been receving the same calls from 310-405-6184. When he said that he was from an attorney's office I asked him for his bar number and their business license number and they hung up. When they asked why I wanted that information, i informed them that I thought they were a scam and wanted to verify their number with the california bar association. that has seemed to stop them from calling
Good Morning All
I look the number up on Better Business Bureau and they do not have the number (310-405-6184 listed when you Google the number it brings you to the page where I found all of your comments.
One page I click on just had the number on it and location of city.
There is to many scam artist who can get I our information from almost anywhere and that is sad.
Anybody can get our information and do what they want with it and we will not find out until it's too late
This person called and said there were criminal charges against my SS# and name. This is a scam. They called me five times tonight and were yelling at me. Please give no information to them. Good luck.
I have received the same message and now the same guy has called again using a different number 310-405-6184... So please don't give any information and when I questioned him about the loan, he stated it was in Dec. 2010 and I didn't receive any types of loans. Then I asked the name of the company and he couldn't come up with and hung up in my face and when I called back blocked he picked up and then hung up again in my face when he heard my voice. They aren't anything but scam artists!!!!!
Report it immeadiatley to the FBI, your local police, call your state offices of Homeland Security and Secret Service. This attempted extortion, plain and simple. The FBI and FTC are cracking down on these idiots. SOON, they will get their due.
They called me several times saying that my social security is being investigated and want to know if I belong and have data information of people who speak them are passed by Official name is John Orton or Michael Johnson . care is not true don't give the information
Today I received the phone call asking me if I had a lawyer and that I needed to call 3104056493 because I was being sued. Not sure for what I called and like all the rest was read an affidivate excatly the same as the other comments. I tried to call back to get a case number so I could look it up and was hung up on multiple times and then the phone was taken off the hook. I was a liitle nervous cause although I didnt receive a cash advance they had my info an were not asking me for money so I could not understand why they would even bother. After reading these comments i'm gonna just leave it alone.
I RECEIVED A CALL AS WELL FROM THIS NUMBER AND A BUNCH OF OTHER NUMBERS FROM THESE IGNORANT FAKE DEBT COLLECTORS!!!!!
Fake Debt Collectors Terrify Consumers
Alleged Debt Scam Calls Threaten Consumers: 'Only God Can Help You Now'
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. CONTACT THE AUTHORITIES, ALERT YOUR EMPLOYER AND FAMILY MEMBERS, FTC, BANKS, CREDITORS, PUT A FRAUD ALERT ON YOUR CREDIT REPORT, ATTORNEY GENERAL AND FBI!! I DID..MY FAMILY IS OVER 50% LAW ENFORCEMENT AND WE ARE GOING TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS!! THESE ARE A BUNCH OF IGNORANT BROKE A** SCAMMERS AND THEY NEED TO GET BUSTED AND DO TIME HERE IN THE USA SO THAT THEY CAN LEARN THEIR LESSON!!!! EVERY DOG HAS THEIR DAY AND THEY WILL GET CAUGHT!!!! DO NOT ALLOW THEM TO SCARE YOU AND DO NOT GIVE OUT ANY INFORMATION AND/OR MONEY!! FIGHT BACK AND REPORT THEM!!!
Dr. Confidential Name
Well these idiots using the name Ed Hardy this time call on this phone number: 9163950000 or +8 which shows up on my caller id. It is a non working number when you return calls to it. The message left is a guy with a heavy Indian accent. They...more than one of them ( a woman calls too) on my cell phone from this number and the number +8 which is on caller id is also the same guy. Then he leaves a call back number of 3104056493 saying that is his personal direct line. Well I called that number and it is always busy. He called 20 times today and left messages "Urgent" lawsuit etc. against my name and ss#. This guy has been calling me for over a year an I am so sick of these idiots harrassing me my phone lines, our time, business at work, secretary's having to take their lame threatening messages..this is so rediculous. I am turning them over to the FBI because I have just had enough of these people. I owe them absolutely nothing. They use different names all the time but it is the same IDIOTS. This call has the same line each time..."have your attorney call me immediately to represent me" and all they can say is "if I do not call they wish me good luck"...what a bunch of BS. these should go to jail. Call the police and report them and then take the case number to the FBI. That is the recourse. are they debt collectors or telemarketers? do they get our info from applying to payday advance companies?? Probably yes.
A Joseph Daniels called my job from this number and stated that a lawsuit had been filed agaist my name and social security number. I told him that I was a work and did not have time to talk to him. He left this number and asked me to call him back. I looked up the number and found these post. Thank You. I will be referring this info to my attorney.
I had the exact same thing happen to me this morning about 7:00. 0000 on my cell phone caller ID, same script, everything. I'm glad I Googled this number before I called them back and wasted my time!
I called back just like the message said. As soon as I questioned the guy he proceeded to cuss me out
i got this call 26 hours....it is definately a scam
I recieved the same call today on 3/9/11 stating the same information and threats. My question is, did they follow through with sending the papers out with the sheriff department.
I received a voice mail at work from "Jack Hardy". He said I needed to call back and said "wish you luck for whatever events unfold"... His accent was so thick I couldn't understand the phone number. When I got home and listened to 4 more messages, I finally figured 310.405.6493.
Thank you to everyone who posted on here!! I will not be calling them back!!
This number has been calling me for a week... It shows up as 00000. They finally decided to leave me a message. Most of it I could barely understand as this " Chris Williams" sounded like someone from a foreign land.... He basically told me in tge message to take this message very seriously... It was time sensitive... And at the end he wished me luck if I did not call back for whatever events unfold!!!! Lol!!! From all the posts I'm reading, this IS definetly a SCAM!! Do not call these idiots!
I got this call today from a man saying his name was Chris Williams (yea right) saying just there was an important matter & he could only wish me well if I didn't call back. I called back & got nothing but a full voicemail message. Where are they getting this information? I got a call last week from somewhere I did get a cash advance from and I spoke with them to handle it not these random people talking about a law suit. This is scary.
They called me twice.My attorney called them and were rude.said I was wanted for theft by taking.Yeah right! BIG TIME SCAMMERS.Beware if these people.
These people are harassing me at work and trying to get money off of me saying I owe them on a cash advance I have already paid back
I just received a call today from a Indian woman on 3/2/2011 stating that I got a cash loan from a Cash advance company. They have all of my information including my bank. when I asked what this call was a about they gave me this 310-405-6493 number. When I called they asked me if I ever received a cash advance I asked them from what company and he would not give me that information. He then read me a affidavit stating that I was being sued, but never inclosed how much im being sued for or when the money was transferred to my account. And when I asked where and when this money was supposed to have been sent to my account the Indian man yelled in my ear and told me that I was going to be served by the sheriffs at my job and then he hung up ! 30 mins later after that phone i received a call from the same woman asking me If i had spoken with the attorney I said yes and he hung up on me. I asked her the same information that I asked the indian guy and she hung up on me.. I'm gettin extremely pissed off with these foreigners and their scams.. The government really needs to do something about it.
I received the same voice mail at work from the 0000. telling me a serious matter and the minute I hear this message to call 310-405-6493. If I don't he wished me good luck as the matter unfolds upon me.
Such a SCAM!!!
I just received a call from 310-405-6493 today. Telling me that it was very important to contact them and time was very short. Let me explain........my caller ID showed the number calling to be 0000. I then was notified I had a voice mail......(this is on my cell phone). I checked it and the person calling I couldn't understand. He left the number above, and even wished me good luck. I called the number and keep get a busy signal. When I know more I will post it.
