I got a call saying same thing only the number that called was 513-399-4914.
They really scared me and I asked if they would send what I was told that I owed in writing. Of course I never got anything but certainly did not want any debts coming back on me so I set up pymts.
I saw them go up and the payment dates increased to wkly from bi-weekly. I called my atty and cancelled my debit card.
Also, the number who called me saying he was a detective coming to pick up called from 801-963-3300.
A guy called my parents house asking for me stating warrants were being issued against me for check fraud in TN. I called the number back to talk to "William" at 901-217-3736 who then requested I pay $2000 right then or they were submitting the paper work for a warrant for my arrest and officers would be coming to my work to take me to jail tomorrow. Then he ended up saying they would be picking me up tonight and my only option was to pay the money with a debit card. He had quite a lot of personal information on me as well. But I ended up saying "do you realize how this looks?" and the fact that it was taking place all on the phone and I am just supposed to trust they are who they say they are. I asked for the company's name before hanging up and he said J Michael Price Associates (googled and he is in Dallas, TX). The number called back again and left a message stating the caller was a detective who was in route to bring me into jail and that I needed to call the investigators back as they were trying to locate me. I'm glad I stumbled across this page though 'cause I was freaked out and going to call a lawyer first thing in the morning since this was all taking place 5:00 pm MST (7 p.m. EST).
I don't know who this William Blair is but he tried to take money from me he called me making threats and I did not know what the heck he was talking about. I had an attorney call him and when he found out he hurried up and hung up the phone. His number is 305-907-1545
Same thing. I paid them $700.00 on a settlement for the same thing. Wire fraud and etc. The settlement portion is $1,300.00. I am sending a report to the Federal Trade Commission. Will notify my attorney and give him all this information, as well. New number 305-974-6358, or 314-669-7140, 305-907-8511. Try these numbers I hope they work. Will let you know after meeting my attorney.

I just got a call today from someone by the name of James Hawkins....very unprofessional and threatning type of guy.....said he had proof that letters were sent to my home 3 times within the last month by certified mail....when I inquired that I did not get them and I was contacting my attorney because I have been getting fraudulent calls, he then said well you can settle this by paying a portion today or else your file is moving forward for me to be prosecuted.....well i immediately knew this was fraudulent - he said this was from some loan from 2005....i hung up eventually. It's unfortunate people can't try to get a job making honest money .....all that energy to try and rob someone else....what a travesty!

We got a call from a James Hamilton from 513-223-7726 and tried to scare my wife into paying money and said if she didnt she would be arrested at 5PM. We hung up and contacted our local police and the officer came out and took a report and actually called them number and the guy that answered wouldn't give any info and hung up on the officer.
& the telephone number he called from was 513-223-5807
Rcvd a call from William Blair working for J Michael Price and Associates. Stating that I would be charged with 3rd degree internet wire fraud and conspiracy to defraud by the UD Dept Of Justice and he would be sending this to the US Prosecutors office to have them issue a warrant for my arrest. This scared the h3ll outta me, reading these post has sort of calmed my nerves a bit. When I told him I didn't feel comfortable giving him my info although he had verified quite a bit of my info including SSN, but didn't have any current information. I was shocked that he had my new cell phone number. He did place me on hold several times as wellI have tried to research this law firm he states he works for but I come up empty handed.
Same as above James Hawkins 513-223-77222
I hope nobody falls for this & or it helps someone in some way.

I WAS SCARED TO DEATH, BUT SEEING WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID, I'M NO LONGER WORRRING ABOUT THIS LOOSER. THANKS FOR GETTING THE WORD OUT THERE. HE GOT MY PAYMENT INFO AND I CANCELED BEFORE HE COULD WITHDRAW. HOPE SOMEONE ELSE DOESN'T GET CAUGHT UP IN HIS WEB OF LIES AN DECIET.
A William Blair just called me threatening me of issuing a warrant. Unless, I paid him 1500 to settle some debit and if I paid today he would give me a 500 discount. It seems like a scam from all the messages here. First he said he was from the State Attorney office, then he said he was from J. Michael Price and Associates. He did have some of my personal info, which was weird.
They just called and asked for my husband by his first and last name. I am saying for my husband, but could have been my son also, since they both have the same name! Was going to call him back that we have four with that name in the family but decided not to bother. His message was that we were listed as an emergency contact for someone with our same last name (they must assume it was our daughter or relative) in an ongoing investigation and the person with our last name was a person of interest in that matter. Did not bother to answer 1/25/2012
The message was as follow: (I am keeping it)
XX Your number was listed here as an emergnecy contact number for YX. YXI am a bit concern as I have you listed here as a person of interest on an ongoing investagation. Return a call to my office immediately at 523-223=5807 my division #is 20. YX this is an official (did not understand this word) federal governed attempt to contact you or your attorney. ___________yourself accordingly and good luck. Again, my number is..................I guess they are trying to scare us into thinking that someone in our family is in trouble and they need us, because they have us for emergency contact, and when do you contact an emergency number if not when there is an emergency. Thanks God we are a very close family and no one is un trouble or being investigated and our daughters have married names, since we are already great grandparents!

Got a similar call about 30 minutes ago, they even talked to my boss. Told me they were with the Joseph C Lucas Law Offices in Middleton, OH. I talked to the law office and was advised this was not so.
They just called me and said the same thing!
had a guy call me and told me that he was going to have me thrown in jail for, failure on a loan and charge me with 3rd degree fraud cause i tried to scam a federal institution!!!! i told him to kiss my a** take me to court, and don ever call my phone making threats like that i take it personal!!!! he said come up with money now or u will be arrested by end of the week1! i told him to get a life and leave hard working citizen that work 45 hours or more a week i got a mortgage i pay my taxes i dont do drugs i dont smoke i never ever bein arrested. i got 3 kids to worry bout it was in 2007 the place went out of business! why wait til now
I got a call from what it sounds like the same people. This guy used the name James Hawkins and said he was from some law firm. I made him give the name and I tried to google it and found nothing. I called an attorney in my town and he said he had a similar call a few months ago but the person had paid them the money before contacting him and they kept calling wanting more money. It is against the law for them to threaten you with arrest. My lawyer said it doesn't work like that anyway. This guy told me all the same stuff I'm reading from everyone else. Total scammers. When I asked for a number of the "original" company they stated I owed money too it had the same area code as this "law office". Very shady...they're not getting a dime from me!
They called me with the same BS.. I contacted an attorney who in fact said that it was a scare tactic and it's actually against the law for them to call and harrass you with threat of prosecution
I just recieved a phone call from the same guy.. William Blair.. He stated that he was calling to investigate a fraud case against me. He claimed to be from a company called Swartz Meyer and Associates. He kept putting me on hold when I questioned him. I don't believe I owe a debt to anyone. I tried to pull them up on the internet and nothing came up. I did in fact google the phone number and this is what I found.
I received a name of William Blair....don't know who true it is...but that's what he stated.
They called me today...said they were coming to arrest me on a check in 2007. Threatened to come on my job.....scared the s*** out of me. I saw these post and called to schedulean appointment with my atty. in the morning.
Received phone call from this phone number today with the notice that they were from the NY District Attorneys Office and were calling me to notify me of the impending arrest for check fraud related to a company called BMG Corp. They wouldn't confirm my name and kept giving me a social security number that started with 076-etc and said they had been tracking my emails to an AOL account since 2008. When I demanded information from them and told them they had the wrond person, they hung up. I called the NY DA's office and reported it to the special investigations office and they recommended that I file the complaint with the police department from which the phone number originated - Middletown, Ohio. So, I did just that. I already have fraud alerts on all my accounts. Hopefully police in Middletown, Ohio can tell me more.
Same thing happened to me this morning but they said they. Were the department of justice.
