This number called and said that they will be arresting me within the next 24 hours and that I can settle this for a mere amount of 8600 dollars, n / India Voices and slangs, they use English names and the person is Mike Nelson. This is a SCAM!! DO NOT Give them anything else.. I would have my attorney contact him and I would file charges for harassment, he hung up on me. Hopefully now that I have called them out, they will leave me alone. DO NOT PAY THEM ANY MONEY - they are a SCAM!!!
Think he said his first name was robin, but sure his last name was Foster.
Called me said for me or my attorney call him back asap & if i ignore his phone call all he can do is wish me good luck as the situation unfold on you.
Called the number back after googling it - I asked specifically for James who left the VM. When I notified him that this was a scam and that I would have my attorney contact him and I would file charges for harassment, he hung up on me. Hopefully now that I have called them out, they will leave me alone. DO NOT PAY THEM ANY MONEY - they are a SCAM!!!
This sounds like extortion dressed as debt collection. The agents' horrid threats are empty and their conduct is illegal. As early as possible it's critical to determine if your collector is domestic or yet another South Asian faker. The former you can sue into submission; the latter tend to be out of reach.
My notes from October 2011 on payday loan and "hot check" collectors are linked below.

FTC alert: Who's Calling? That Debt Collector Could Be a Fake
The following will be useful if you have a US domestic collector calling:
official FTC guidance and staff opinions on the FDCPA, PDF copy of the Act
CFPB reiteration of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act
One of many debt collector scams from an individual with East Indian/Middle Eastern accent
I recieved a VM and after taking down number and name, had it blocked in my phone then proceeded to call this person stating this was Susan from Glaxo a drug company and that such and such had called regarding his erictile dysfuntion. They stuttered and hemhawed then I was put on hold then they asked wan't this so and so and I said no this was Susan and I was returning this mans call for help and if they didn't care about his ED then I would hang up. Got them flustered and hopefully no more calls.
THIS IS ABSOLUTELY A SCAM THE SAME MESSAGE AND THE SAME RECORDING IS ON EVERY VOICE MAIL THAT THEY LEAVE. THEY JUST HAVE DIFFERENT CITY AND STATES THEY CALL FROM. PLEASE DO NOT FALL FOR THIS TRICK IF YOU THINK THAT THIS CALL IS A FRAUD TO SWINDLE MONEY OUT OF YOU, THEN BINGO YOU GUESSED CORRECTLY. BUT, IF YOU GIVE THEM YOUR INFORMATION YOU MAY BECOME A VICTIM TO FRAUDULENT CHARGES AS WELL AS PUT YOURSELF THROUGH A WHOLE LOT OF UNECCESARY BILLS!!!!!! THESE PEOPLE NEED TO GET A FREAKING LIFE AND OR A CLUE!!!!!!!!!!!! SHAME ON YOU INDIA!!!!!!!!!!!
