I got same call saying I'll have two felony warrant . Out at 530 if did not send them money to money gram or use debt card
It's a scam. Read what ShillKill posted earlier. Even if you defaulted on a loan, it's *not* fraud, and there are *no* warrants for your arrest. Please do report these jokers to your local PD and also let your bankruptcy lawyer know. Again, defaulting on any loan is not fraud, and isn't a criminal matter.
No, it's not "legit". The poster said it was a loan her sister "supposedly" -according to the callers - took out. Debt is civil, not criminal, so there are *no* charges. Threatening someone with charges is illegal per the FDCPA. Disclosing information to a third party is also a violation of federal law. Maybe your shilltastic "company" shouldn't commit fraud.
This is legit. You owed money on a payday loan and you didnt pay it back.
Said her name was Ashley Tanner. Said I had two warrants for fraud for check-n-go loan taken out. If I did not make restitution no, the police will be told to pick me up and put me in jail for 120 days. Said notice was sent to an old address of mine (the one I had when I took out the loan). Times are tough and I am in bankruptcy court right now. Told her there should be no issues bc of the automatic stay of the bankruptcy. She said fraud is a criminal matter, not a civil matter.
I just got a call with the same ppl and saying mu wife has two warrants and we have pay 1260.00 by 1 pm today I called the police they said don't pay it
Received a call from this number from a woman who identified herself as Rose Collins (probably not her real name). In her voicemail, she said I had two "warrants" from the state of Florida (this is a Texas number), and I needed to call back at this number and talk to the "compliance manager." I have had many calls from this number and the calls are not for me, but someone with the same first name but different last name. I have repeatedly called them back and told them this is not me, but yet they keep calling! This time when I called back, "Rose" answered and I told her I was not who she was looking for, did not know the woman she was looking for, that I had already told them to stop calling several times and if they call again I would contact my State AG. It didn't seem to faze her...she told me I was lying and they would continue to call. THIS HAS GOT TO STOP!!!
Ok I got one of theses calls today 469-513-9094
...I figured it is a scam but how did they know I owe money to who I Do owe money to ... How they get that info ?????
It is. Total scam. See previous entries. These people are absurd with the stories they tell, but they are trying to scare people into paying them money. Usually by untraceable means.
My ex husband, funny thing is we have been divorced for 16years,was contacted today by a Deborah Hall stating she needed to speak to me regarding check fraud. She said she was with the Compliance and Fraud Department. She also contacted my parents and left me a message. She stated that I had not responded to a letter sent to me by the State of California and that my case was being turned over. She said to contact her office to hear my rights so as not to be blindsided by law enforcement. When I call the number it sounds likea pepersonal phone for John Warren, and it is a Texas number. Why would Texas be calling about a California State issue. ..and threaten California Law Enforcement? Futher I have not written checks in years, and if I had the business or DA for that county would contact me....or send local PD. This seems very fishy to me!
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- (June 03, 2014)
Harris County DA Devon Anderson is warning citizens about a scam being done by people claiming to be from her office.
According to Anderson, criminals claiming to be members of the DA's check fraud division are randomly calling people, telling them they have a bounced check and need to pay the fine with a credit card or risk being arrested.
"Criminals will use any method necessary to steal your credit card information, including impersonating law enforcement personnel," said Anderson in a press release. "Our office will not call you and ask for your credit card information. Never give out your credit card or personal information to anyone who calls asking for it. If you think you are a victim of this scam, please come forward so we can help you and catch the criminals responsible."
According to the DA's office, if someone has a check delinquency, they'll get a letter instructing them to make a payment by cashier's check or money order to the Harris County Restitution Program.
If you think you are a victim of this scam, please call the Harris County District Attorney's Office at 713-755-5800.
I too had your experience as you discribed it with one minor difference.........The guy told me his name was Sean Warren not John Warren from the 469-513-9094!!!!! This is a SCAM like know other and are very, very convincing that it's real. DO NOT GIVE THESE PEOPLE MONEY!!!!! REPORT THEM AND SAVE ALL MESSAGES LEFT BY THESE PEOPLE AND RECORD PHONE CONVERSATIONS IF YOU ARE ABLE TOO!
Got a call this morning from a Chelsea, she wouldn't state her last name but she said was giving me a "courtesy call." She wouldn't state the name of the company everytime I asked she kind of avoided the question. She told me to pay 815$ by 11am today or a warrant for my arrest would be issued and then she transferred me to a "john sperlock" he told me he was an attorney in Dallas an that I only got this call because I have no priors. I called back and asked if I was speaking to Chelsea she said yes, when I start questioning her about the company she said she couldn't answer my questions and to let her transfer me to mr. Super lock I then hung up. They called back and I asked whom I was speaking with and he said my name is David I am returning a call for john sperlock I said returning? I never called him? I then asked what the name of their compan is and he said "uhh LRG" but he said it very quickly.
It is a scam. Debt is civil, not criminal, so no one can be arrested, even if they did default on a loan. And if you were to be arrested for a crime, why would cops - or a prosecutor, no less - warn you that you'd be arrested?! Please do report these losers to the FTC, FBI and your state's Attorney General.

Thank you for all the post on this, otherwise we would have a had a head ache work these scammers. The guy claim to be Texas prosecutor but after he didn't get what he want he made threat and cursed at me while saying that the call is recorded for the judge to hear.
I have been notified of 2 complaints in the state of Illinois. They did not leave the name of their company, just their phone number of 1-469-513-9094, which is a Texas phone number. The name of the person that called me, my mother, and my husband was Mrs. Blair. They want to me to call to have a compliance officer go over my file. They did not leave the name of their company either.
My mother and father-in-law received the first phone call from 855-791-9102 from a gentleman with a heavy accent asking if they knew me. The man said he was calling from an ïnvestigation agency and needed to get in touch with me. I reported the number to the FTC fraud online investigation and didnt think twice of it. On May 24th, someone called from 469-513-9094 saying that they were "trying to keep me out of jail" and that they needed to find me. My in-laws were frightened and let me know about the call today. After researching both phone numbers, I am somewhat convinced that this is a scam. I did leave a voicemail message for a John Warren at the 469 number to return my call and I will try to update this post if I hear anything back from the number.
same as above, got a call from girl named Chelsy. Said my brother had 2 outstanding warrants and police were going to pick him up today unless he got a hold of them. Thank goodness for these blogs to see they are nothing but scammers.
I just got a call stating almost the same thing today. I haven't talked to him in 13 years and he doesn't have my new cell number that I know of. They said they were trying to keep him out of jail and I was his emergency contact.
I received the same call and the girl named Taylor Lakes said she was from the Legal Research Group and that I had passed the NCIC background check and have no felonies so that woud be considered in my case. The B... also said I had until 4:30 today to send the money via moneygram or pay online to some place or the police will be picking me up. This is the second time someone has tried to get me, last year it was a guy and I got the police involved and never heard from him again, now this so I told her to do whatever she felt was necessary and I hung up. It's sad that there is nothing you can about these kind of people trying to scam you out of money, I feel for the elderly people who may have fallen for this kind of crap.
Some message for not answering the mandatory compliance message -- last chance :)
psycho phone scam, try to record the calls and report them to Collections Fair Practice Act monitoring agencies in your state. my guess is that they are not scamming anyone in their own state, becuase it is more difficult to enforce across state line. DO NOT GIVE THEM ANYTHING WITHOUT A WRITTEN NOTICE SENT FROM A PHYSICAL ADDRESS (not PO Box), if they can't do that, they are scamming. Legally, if they cannot notify in writing from an actual physical address from a business, they are not a legit business.
he tried to say I had pending warrants in states I've never been in. I am finger printed and pass a Federal Clearance every year for my job, so I am not worried at all- THEY ARE NOT LEGIT - SCAM ALERT - DO NOT GIVE ANY FINANCIAL INFORMATION!!!
Received a call from this number regarding my ex husband, looking for him to tell him he will be picked up by the police yesterday. I have not seen him since 2002, Stated they were Legal Resource Group out of Dallas, Texas.
These people had a Texas phone number but wanted us to send a payment through money gram to Amherst New York for a warrant in Missouri. Idiots I tell ya! They had our grandparents convinced that it was legit.
This number called my grandparents today saying my sister would have 2 felony charge warrants issued at noon today if she did not pay for this loan she supposedly got two years ago. They were even willing to let her pay it out in payments! Who let's someone pay payments on a warrant lol. They wanted the payments sent via Money-Gram to Amherst, NY (the number they're using is a Texas number). Then the woman "Chelsea H" said to call her back and give her the reference number from the sent money gram so she could verify payment. Yeah, more like pick up the money for said "Bahama marketing group".
Man stating he was about a warrant in harris county in TX.... They don't call about warrants stupid a**...
