I've been getting calls from"Stanley Washington". The 1st call/message, he gave 414-431-5181 and said that he was calling from Goldberg Maxwell. The 2nd,3rd and 4th message, he said that he was a Sr.Investigator with the Department of National Check registry and called from 585-278-1382. He gave me a website of checkregistry.org and gave me a PO box in Buffalo as their address. When I told him I wanted proof of this debt with BMG, he transferred me to a woman that said she would send it to my email. All it ended up being was a letter offering a settlement, but none of the proof of debt that I asked for. Then this guy starts getting rude telling me I don't know how hard his job is. I ask him, which one, the job for Goldberg Maxwell or for the National Check registry?. He then hung up, I called the other number he used, and guess who answered....Mr Washington. Explanation....we have 1200 companies under this umbrella.....LOL what ever.
Thank you for that riveting post Mike. It is sooo appreciated
stop taking out loans losers!!!!
Have received a number of telephone calls from "Goldberg Maxwell" investigators of various names. Are calling and asking to speak to a person's supervisor. I am that person's supervisor and therefore took the call. First person said that individual had until 4PM to call a different person back otherwise they would serving person with a summons. Today received phone calls (yes multiple) from same place but different people, first time my receptionist wouldn't give the lady any info because she was being rude, second time a guy was put through to me. It was very odd, asking if this business has "standard procedures that they needed to follow to protect them against liability when they have the local sherrif's dept serve papers to the person they keep asking for. He also claimed he would be sending a Verification of Employment, I asked if he had person's authrization in writing for me as employer to release employment info, he said no, but there was a spot on the form for that. Still no fax received.
Sounded professional; however, would not give me nature of call nor confirm their name. Insisted on knowing if my name was____________. When I asked the call his name and nature of call, he only stated it was Goldberg and Maxwell. He asked if I was ______. I would not oblige my name, and insisted to know nature of his call to me as I was at work. He would not tell me. As advised by my lawyer, if person cannot identify themselves nor submit info in writing, not obligated. It's against the law for debt collectors or loan sharks to contact you at work, cell or otherwise. I hung up after saying "you have the wrong number". I have no time for nonsense.
My 80 y/o mother-in-law recieved a call from Jennifer Vanom(?) stating they needed to contact her son right away, that they were investigating him for fraud and he would be arrested if they didn't hear from him. After the 2nd call to her, I called these people back. They claim to want to collect an internet payday loan my husband took out in June 2009. We weren't married at that time so I do not know if he took out the loan! I requested documentation from them. They wanted to get my information while I was waiting. Told them to send me documentation and I would work this out. Was supposed to get it yesterday. no info from them but another call stating I need to make arrangements today. I am glag I read this blog because they will definitely have to provide concrete evidence of who they are and that hubbie took out a loan before they get any info from me. Oh, and they do claim to have attorneys in the office, but the 2nd lady I spoke to identified herself as Senior Investigator.
threatened me to call them back...i know enough not to give out personal info on the phone....sorry but im not stupid...please stop the calls.....
I received call today via my cell phone number and identified herself as Susan Goodwill from Goldberg and Maxwell and they have a case against me regarding my SS# from Harris County area and needed to verify my personal information before sending it onward. Being suspicious regarding her threatning voice message today this company or person needs to stop calling me as well as other people.
I have been receiving calls from these people for over 2 Weeks now. The name of the lady calling is Jennifer Vanom. She has left threatening messages saying they will take my car away and revoke my DL..WTH!? She was saying I had.criminal charges ib the counTy I live in. so I call her back asking what the hell she is talking about, and.the 1st thing she says is the criminal charges have been dropped!?!? Then she tells me this is about a payday loan I took out over 5 years ago and I owe$884. If I dont pay they will take me to court. I never told her I was the roghy person, but told her its illegal.for her to harass me with those messaged and f$&k u. Got all her info. Will be filing a complaint.
This is all coming together for me now....There is a HUGE debt collection scam being ran out of Buffalo NY. A few years ago it was NCW LLC.
The guys running this will harrass and threaten. Hopeully our employers will put up with another round of this....
Keep posting any info you recieve and good luck
These people called me at work and told me they were sending the sheriff to get me at work for a bad check written in 2009. They went on to say it was a cash loan that I never paid for. I found the documents that prove that I paid this. The phone call was scary, they threatened my husband on our home phone, and then me at work. We called the sheriff's number that called our house, and it was a fax number. The sheriff's office said it was a scam, and they were trying to find out who they were. Hop0e this helps others out there who are bding harassed.
I live in Texas and have recently recieved calls from a Susan Goodwell and a Stephanie Santos claiming that they represent Goldwell & Maxwell. The phone numbers they give are 414-431-5175 and 414-431-4729 respectively. They leave messages that threaten sudden legal action, but yet I have recieved nothing regarding this so called sudden serious matter in the mail or from my bank.
I believe that they are part of this scam operation.
414-431-4671 and other various #'s trying to collect for cash advance companies who are legal robbers in our society
They said my name was attached to my social security number. Sometimes they address themselves as "Investigator" when they leave a message and sometimes just a name.
Oh they wanted me to schedule mines up in two payments also.
Yes this company is off the chain. They called my job and got to talking crazy. He actually scared one of the bosses but me i was calm about it. Like i told the man give me proof and we move from there. Well he had the nerver to tell me that he wanted my credit card information to pay off this debt and he wanted it now. Well at that point i lost it and told him to serve me the damn papers and i will see him in court and hung up the phone. Oh by the way i got a $7200 loan and they wanted to settle for $400.00. Now that is a big lost that they were taking. lol
I was called and harassed to day from a Milwaukee, Wisconsin law firm called- Goldberg Maxwell and Associates to collect a pay day loan from 5 years ago. I was so threatened when they said this that I gave them by debit card information and set up 2 payments from this company.
I found out later they were a scamming company that isn't even real.
I received a call from Goldberg and Maxwell about an hour ago as well. The man was very nice and rattling off information (some true, some false) and I asked him to send me the proof. He is apparently going to email it to me. The message he left stated to call him back and he would be there until 5:30p PST, which was 4 1/2 hours later, so when I called him and asked him to send the information, he said it probably wouldn't be today, but by tomorrow because they were closing in 20 minutes!! They must need time to type it all up. Seriously, if you owed a debt, are they going to send you an email?? They're not going to send a certified letter or some of other form of delivery that they can use in court? I had already filed a complaint with the Attorney General's office about a year ago because they've been calling for that long, and I've never called them back until now because I want them to send me something in writing that I can send back to the AG's office. This is not a lawful way to collect a debt, and debt collection agencies are registered to do business in the state they are located in, these frauds are not. Do not fall for this scam. I've saved every call (I have them set to go directly to voicemail on my phone) and now with the written documentation, I plan to file suit against them for fraud and harassment. I hope this helps someone that they are calling to intimidate! The number they called from was 414-431-4654.
Received a call from them almost EVERYDAY at my job!!! Soooo annoying. I did take out a payday loan but I don't remember the company they said it was for. They are really pissing me off and i don't want these people to be the reason I loose my job!!! What can I do to make them stop calling my place of business?? They are threatening to take me to court and garnish my wages. They even know what county my courts in. Am I panicking for no reason... Any suggestions!!! Thank you!!! 414-431-4729 names Stephanie, and another named Susan.
I have been betting this phone call from a Phillip duboise from Goldberg Maxwell 414 431 4529 for a few days on my cell now work. He just faxed over a form asking my work to supply them with a bunch of personal info from my salary to my OT pay all that deals with my pay check. I dont think so. Any suggestions here for me so I can get this jack### from calling me.
YEAH RIGHT YOU MUST BE WORKING FOR THEM OR YOU ARE THE SCAMMERS THEMSELVES.
HAVE A GREAT DAY
THERE IS NO COMPANY BY THE NAME OF GOLD BERG AND MAEXWELL
END OF STORY

Angry in Arizona -4144314560/4144315087
I received a text message on my cell claiming my "account would be closed unless payment is made immediately." I telephoned "Goldberg & Maxwell" and asked them to stop sending texts, and they said they needed my social security number to stop the texts. Would not provide any information, including my name on the alleged account. Told me that I would be taken to Court for not giving him my checking account routing number and account number. It was so funny, I started laughing and asked him how many people fell for this crap. He hung up. DONT GIVE ANY INFORMATION> also using phone number 414-431-5087
Now I got that call today for him telling me to resolve the issue or they would serve me papers and when I said that I will have my lawyer get in touch with him he asked for his name and number now if I tell you that I will have him contact you then that's what it will be and I hung up and sent his a** straight to voice mail.
Pissed off from 414-431-4583
They are calling my phone trying to collect money from an account that they say I have with them in there office because of a loan that was pulled with a company called comp u credit which is also a scam he told me that I will get something in the mail and they emailed me some information but it doesn't add up because if you want to sue me but I never received anything and to make matters worse or funny is they saying it's from 2008 and I had my number in 2010 so where did they get my number and information. I heard that most companies will sell your information this is how they are getting our information.
I received a call from Stephanie Santos from Goldberg and Maxwell saying they received papers from a cash loan company from 2008 debt that were going to process a civil suit for malious intent to defraud a financial institution and bank deposits. It's a collection agency using scare tactics and if they call you, do not resolve with them voluntarily until you find out what your rights are. She threatened action and said it had to be resolved by end of day. No one does that, give you 90 mins to resolve an issue you don't have a chance to research or seek counsel on. Now they are blowing up my phone call every minute.
I just got a call from the today, 6/12. I know now that this is a scam. Thanks to people like you for reporting this stuff. Otherwise, people would be terrified and give up lots of their hard-earned money to this company. It was a lady that called me from 414-431-5099. I asked them to provide me with proof but all they sent was an email which looked like some random person just typed it up. There is no seal, no physical address, nothing that look official at all. Yeah right, I AM NOT GIVING THEM ONE RED CENT OF MY MONEY!
They called me again on Friday at 348PM
Some clown left me a message that I will be served papers if I don't call them back before Monday. They are scammers So don't give them any info.
There # was 414-431 4583.
When they called me 2 weeks ago the # was 414-431-4685
They are always changing there spoofed #'s.
I received a phone call at work 6/8 from Alan Goldberg he said he was from the law firm of Goldberg and Maxwell he called out the last four digits of my ss. He said I had an bank account with a credit union. I stop him and told him I can not verify any information due the fact I've received several calls regarding this matter so I asked him for his name and phone number so I can turn it over to my attorney. He got loud and started asking me for my attorney information so I again asked him for his number then he said either I give him my attorney information or he would send someone to my job. I told him see you soon!!! I check the caller id at work and he called from 414-431-4583
Someone called e feom this number threatening to sue me also very harassing coukd you please stop them from calling people.
