i been called twice by these people, saying i owe for a visa credit card from 1999 !!! never once did they say they were trying to collect a debt like legitimate collection agencies do, right away it was all about getting $900 from me or a legal warrant for my arrest for fraud was going to be issued.... Ive dealt with many bad collectors before, and knowledge of your rights is key...
I previously posted reguarding this number. I have since then blocked the 406-272-1479 from calling my number and now they are calling me from 313-556-2618 with the same recording....Just FYI don't fall for it...it is a SCAM!!! I tried to do a reverse look-up on their numbers to verify who they actually are and it comes up with no name of the caller that is calling....
SO NOW I KNOW FOR SURE THEY A FULL OF HOG WASH!!!! and the debt they are trying to say that I owe, has been paid already and I have written proof that it has been paid!
So I blocked the number from being able to call me....and now there is a different number with the recording the new number is 313-556-2618 and is also a number from the Montana Area. SCAM you guys BEWARE!!!!!
they told me the exact same thing!!! SCAM!!!
Same thing with me except they were using an address that I had not resided at for over 7 years. But once I told them I had proof that this account had been paid in full they hung up on me real quick. And the account that they were saying that was up for collection and they were going to take me to court, I wasn't even living at my old address when I obtained the original account.....They are full of HOG WASH!!!!! SCAM and more SCAM!!!!
and the number they were calling from originally was 813-666-0051 then once I told them that person did not belong to this number, they started calling me from the 406-272-1479 and were asking from me. BEWARE!!!!!!! SCAM ARTIST FOR SURE!!!!!!!!
I started getting phone calls fro some other person from this company. And then when I called to tell them that the person they were calling for did not belong to this phone number a week later they started calling for me. They could not give me my current address, and they were trying to collect on an account that I had already paid in full and I had proof that I had already paid it in full. And once I told them that they hung up on me, so I called them back and they still kept hanging up on me. I really don't know who these people think they are but they are trying to SCAM people out of their money. FIrst off usually if you have an account that is up for collection, they will send you a letter in the mail with your current address, which they couldn't give me my current address, and I never received a letter from this company. BEWARE, do not fall for their fraudulent fake selves.
They called both of my telephone numbers, leaving messages in both phones stating to be informing me of two fraudulent charges in my name and social security number and that if I didn't call this number before the summons was received there would be nothing i could do.
I just got a call from the 406-272-1479 number stating the exact same things as everyone else. The first time I called the number back a guy picked up the phone and immediately placed me on hold (I couldn't catch how he identified himself.) After being on hold for 7+mins I hung up. I called back 7 more times and 3 times the guy answered and uttered different titles but placed me on hold the same. 2 times a lady answered and placed me on hold. The second to last time the guy answered and id'd himself I asked if he could repeat he hung up on me. The final time the guy answered; he id'd himself again I asked him to repeat he did and I asked what company I was calling he said GA. I said ok and hung up. These losers need to get a life.
I received the same phone call with the same issue. I'm glad I researched here and see a lot of people are receiving the same calls . Thanks for the info.
I got exactly the same kind of call! I have NEVER received a call from these people before. I called back but no answer just a recording saying it was not a valid extension.
this woman has called multiple times using my maiden name that i havent used in years. stating "good luck in court" having papers to file on me to my place of employment and place of address. I would think by now being married for 3 years they would know i haven't used the name in years if it was a legit legal problem and i have yet to see papers with either name or the name of the company .
These people just called me!!!!! The message was this is our 3rd and final attempt to call you good luck in court!!! Who says something like that! I called them back saying my lawyer would like to get in touch with them they hung the phone up.
They are at it again.. this started 2 months ago with 5 or 6 numbers calling me. They left me go
for 2 months and they are back with this number now. I wish it would STOP.
I received the same phone call just now wanting me to call back with my address and my job address so they can serve me! REALLY?!?! Don't fall for the scam folks! They tried me 2 years ago. Thanks God for Google so I could look their butts up!
I am also receiving calls regarding some unpaid debt from this number. They are saying they are filing lawsuit. They told me it was from a debt in either 2005 or 2006 but they did not have the information in front of them. They keep calling leaving messages that they are taking legal action.
I have received several calls from this number stating they are going to serve my home and job and want me to call and give them my information to serve me. This is a scam. We should report them to the FTC...I am
recorded "caller" looking for a "Daschia Lee" (sp?) regarding some court case. Good luck.
Caller called on Thurs Dec 12 at 3:17pm, saying the same thing as the other people on here are stating. THE EXACT SAME MESSAGE. Giving me a case #. Who can this be reported to?
I got a call yesterday and it was around 5:30 PST and it was also a recording and it didn't even sound like my first name that the recording was saying. I called it back and no answering machine! just rang and rang then a message came on saying that the extension I was trying to reach was incorrect to try again. So I called this morning and the say something really quick that all I understood was do you have a case number? and then was placed on hold. Wonder if people can sue this callers cuz im pregnant and don't need stress like this that just really freaked me out when I know I have been doing my best to clear things up.
Big time scam!! Do not reply to these people.
I got a call from this number, on my cell phone and landline a recording with a female voice stating my name and that they are calling from processing and summons division to notify of 2 charges that will be filed in my county due to some fraudulent activity attached to my name and social security number, they are calling to make me aware of my right to address the charges before I get served at my home address or place of employment they asked to call 406 272 1479 (land line from billings, MT) and talk to someone in their legal department. When I called the first day no one picked up and the second day the line was no longer valid. WHAT THE F***! This is such a scam!
Please don't fall for this scam like my neighbor unfortunately did.
We received this call at our firm identifying someone who is neither a client nor an employee. The recording is very scary sounding, explaining you will be served with a summons at work or home and charges will be filed against you if you don't call and talk with their "legal department." If you are contacted by this company and they are attempting to collect a legitimate debt, please consider calling an attorney with knowledge of Unfair Debt Collection Practices.
Upon my return call to have our number removed from their call list after the ridiculous recording, I requested their legal department and was immediately placed on hold. I "manager" came on the line indicating they have no legal department. I informed him the recording stated to contact the legal department, and that it would be my preference to speak with them about the phone calls we are receiving. The manager identified the company as "GMA - Goldman and Associates." He claimed to not know that the recording referred people to the legal department regarding a summons or charges being filed against them. Surely, considering the number of posts here and his position as a manager, he has heard this before.
This is a scam! I Just a call from this number. Recording message female voice stating that they are calling from processing and summons division to notify of 2 charges that will be filed in my county due to some fraudulent activity attached to my name and social security number, they are calling to make me aware of my right to address the charges before I get served at my home address or place of employment they asked to call 406 272 1479 (land line from billings, MT) and talk to someone in their legal department. When I called back some woman answer as "information center" there was a lot of noise in the background, people laughing like in a call center. Obviously a scam! Even if it is a real debt collection who calls without properly identifying their company and who calls to warn about charges to be filed without sending anything in the mail?... what are they expecting a payment over the phone?!! ... HA!!
The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) continues to receive complaints from victims of payday loan telephone collection scams. As previously reported in December 2010, the typical payday loan scam involves a caller who claims the victim is delinquent on a payday loan and must make payment to avoid legal consequences.
Callers pose as representatives of the FBI, ?Federal Legislative Department,? various law firms, or other legitimate-sounding agencies and claim to be collecting debts for companies such as United Cash Advance, U.S. Cash Advance, U.S. Cash Net, or other Internet check-cashing services. The fraudsters relentlessly call the victim?s home, cell phone, and place of employment in attempts to obtain payment. The callers refuse to provide information regarding the alleged payday loan or any documentation and become verbally abusive when questioned.
The IC3 has observed variations of this scam in which the caller tells the victim that there are outstanding warrants for the victim?s arrest. The caller claims that the basis of the warrants is non-payment of the underlying loan and/or hacking. If it?s the latter, the caller tells the victim that he or she is wanted for hacking into a business? computer system to steal customer information. The caller will then demand payment via debit/credit card; in other cases, the caller further instructs victims to obtain a prepaid card to cover the payment.
The high-pressure collection tactics used by the fraudsters have also evolved. In one recent complaint, a person posed as a process server and appeared at the victim?s job. In another instance, a phony process server came to a victim?s home. In both cases, after claiming to be serving a court summons, the alleged process server said the victim could avoid going to court if he or she provided a debit card number for repayment of the loan.
If you are contacted by someone who is trying to collect a debt that you do not owe, you should:
?Contact your local law enforcement agencies if you feel you are in immediate danger;
?Contact your bank(s) and credit card companies;
?Contact the three major credit bureaus and request an alert be put on your file;
?If you have received a legitimate loan and want to verify that you do not have any outstanding obligation, contact the loan company directly;
?File a complaint at www.IC3.gov.
It doesn't and it isn't legal .. Real legal servers show up unannounced! And the extortion scam games have gotten out of control, numerous threads here on it. And its just not at Christmas or tax time, its year around now sadly..

Scammers ...it's real funny how they only call around and Christmas and income tax season.Lol And since when does notifying someone they are to appear in court get done over the phone of a court date.
They've been harassing us for years about somebody we never even heard of. I called and cussed the woman who answered 'til a fly wouldn't light on her but it doesn't do any good. I guess we're going to have to track them down and get their attention the way my granddad used to get his mule's attention.
