Got a call from this number didn't answer it as I was too busy looking up the comments everyone so kindly put out here. I figured it was a scam.
I got this information from another site. If you get a call from someone claiming you owe money, ask for a debt validation letter.
Please provide me with the following:
1. What the money you say is owed;
2. Explain and show me how you calculated what you say is owed;
3. Provide me with copies of any papers that show I agreed to pay what you say is owed;
4. Provide a verification or copy of any judgment if applicable;
5. Identify the original creditor;
6. Prove the Statute of Limitations has not expired on this account;
7. Show me that you are licensed to collect insert (your state);
8. Provide me with your license numbers and registered agent including your agent for service of process.
In addition, if your office has reported invalidated information to any of the three major Credit Bureau?s (Equifax, Experian or TransUnion) this action might constitute fraud under both Federal and Ohio laws regarding debt collection practices. Due to this fact, if any negative mark is found on any of my credit reports by your company or the company that you represent I will not hesitate in bringing legal action against you for the following:
A. Violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act
B. Violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act
C. Defamation of Character
If your office is able to provide the proper documentation as requested above, I will require at least 30 days in which to investigate this information and during such time all collection activity must cease and desist.
Also during this validation period, if any action is taken which could be considered detrimental to any of my credit reports, I will consult with my legal counsel for suit. This includes any listing any information to a credit reporting repository that could be inaccurate or invalidated or verifying an account as accurate when in fact there is no provided proof that it is.
If your offices fail to respond to this validation request within 30 days from the date of your receipt, all references to this account must be deleted and completely removed from my credit file and a copy of such deletion request shall be sent to me immediately.
I would also like to request, in writing, that no telephone contact be made by your offices to my home or to my place of employment. If your offices attempt telephone communication with me, including but not limited to computer generated calls and calls or correspondence sent to or with any third parties, it will be considered harassment and I will have no choice but to file suit. All future communications with me MUST be done in writing and sent to the address noted in this letter by USPS.
It would be advisable that you assure that your records are in order before I am forced to take legal action. This is an attempt to correct your records and any information obtained shall be used for that purpose.
As a final matter I require verification from you that this is in fact an actual attorney?s office. In your next communication please provide me with written documentation of the fact that you are a duly licensed attorney, including but not limited to a state bar identification number as well as documentation that you are authorized to practice law in the State of (your state).
This usually stops them cold.
Repeated calls from this number. Online complaints from people saying they've been given vague information about a lawsuit against them. I've not answered these calls so I won't get caught up in their scam, but I want to report them so they will be stopped.
So i get home from work yesterday and my wife informs me about these central processing group people calling and telling me that i have a restraining order also and so on and so forth you guys know what all was said it was everything that was said to you the only difference is there calling from a different number and its 1(617)600-4177. It says there from Watertown, MA.
I just got a call from a 321-420-1810 from the Central Processing Services.. stating that his name is Walter White. He leaves a different number to call him back (716-253-6091); from reading these posts, it seems that this is pretty common. I know there are some debts tied to my name, but this guy lacked professionalism when calling and keeps continuously calling my work #!
I also received a phone call from this number. I have received numerous calls from them in the past, but I never answered them. I called the number back and a recording came on saying the number was temporarily out of service. Guess they aren't "collecting" enough to pay their phone bill, eh? I've put this number on my reject list and will automatically go to voice mail. GOOD LUCK....to them. LOL
I just got a call from a 720-253-1291 from the Central Processing Services.. stating that his name is Walter White. From reading the previous posts, it seems that this is pretty common. I know there is a debt or 2 out there tied to my name, but this guys lacked professionalism when calling my cell phone while at work!

I received a call today stated that they were from the law office and they want to send me affidavit concerning a loan. I didn't return the call because it sounds like a scam and I don't owed any money. I am afraid that the payday companies are given out information to these people when you applied for loan. The companies stated that the personal information is secured. It may be wonder how these people get your personal information and call with a threat.
Thanks for your post. This was the very same message for me.
I received a message from this number with an affidavit number from an apparent legal investigation. No one picks up the phone and when someone finally did, they hung up on me. I live on the west coast and this number is in Pennsylvania.
I recieved this exact call last week and its scared me...so thank God I called my friend and talked to her because she told me not do anything
Same story as everyone else. I got a call from this number and a recording massacred my name and informed me, who have never been arrested or charged with anything by the way, that there was a case involving a restraining order against me and I had to respond within 24 hours. I have gotten calls like this before, so I knew it was a complete bs scheme. I pressed '1' to speak with a representative, but 8.5 mins of music later, the line disconnected itself. So, needless to say, this number is a total scam and the first thing to do is call the local authorities so that anyone else in your area can be aware of the threat.
they called my husbands cell and work. They said that they are going to file a restraing order on him. The person who called him, Elexie ingrahm.
I got a call on my cell and they called my work.
There are alling my family my work k
Making treaths that I have a restrain order that there are private invistigators and that they are attorneys wiht xase numbers there realky scear me andmy family
I recieved a call today same thing I took a loan for $400 and now i have to pay $1,000 and the put a restraing order and I have to go to court becuase I took loan for Pay Day Loans .. (which its against the law in new Jersey) they gave me # 800-729-3295 I called them and they have no ideas what I was talkking about they stated they are a fraud!! the person that calle dme was from 570-983-0544
I received the EXACT SAME call today- I missed a call and was left a voicemail by Miss Susan Bakers - obviously reading a "script" stated she was a "special investigator" stated that she was calling regarding a "complaint that was filed against me" then listed my "case number" and then followed a few moments of silence before she stated that there was "also" a number listed in my file that I MUST call immediately and listed the 570-983-0544 and that I needed to forward this info to my attorney and one of us must call in 24-48 hours. THEN SHE HAD THE AUDACITY to say that this was regarding a Restraining order and that I must appear in court.
I hadn't had time to look this up and so I called the number and after 5-6 minutes of elevator music a man came on the phone and asked my "case number" i gave him the info and he proceeded to tell me that I owed over $900 on a payday loan.. I've NEVER ONCE IN MY ENTIRE LIFE had any kind of loan other than 2 cars and a mortgage loan.... Told them send me my summons and we'll see you in court..... I don't know if you should call and let them know you're onto their game so they will leave you alone or if you should just ignore them all together... I guess only time will tell...
They need help
I received a call 3 October from a African Amerian Female - Susan Bakers - who sound very unprofessonal on the phone - stating same info as mention in previous replies. These individuals need serious help for sure. Please do not respond. They need to call DAYSTAR for prayer and counseling.
They called and said there was a complaint against my husband and i had to call this number. Si I called it and they said we took out a pay day loan and i told them we did not. She called me a liar. I am in the process of getting stuff together to file bankruptcy and I told he as soon as it starts my lawyer will contact her . She said we cant file against them they will not allow it , i told her then show up at court and fight against until then , Don't call again. These people are rude and use lies to get money and info !
This place is not legal. I work for attorneys and part of their practice is collections. When they called my husband, I had a lot of fun with them. I knew the questions to ask and I knew what was required (what they have to supply to me) to "collect".
PLEASE EVERYONE - DO NOT SEND THESE PEOPLE MONEY! THEY CANNOT DO ANYTHING TO YOU! THEY ARE NOTHING BUT FRAUDS.
I got a call from a Brandon Jones saying he was an investigator and that somebody filed a complaint against me. I called the number back and was on hold so I got tired of waiting and hung up. I researched the number to find it came from PA. I dont owe anybody from that state. Well it kept eating at me who it was so i googled the name and found the number. As I clicked on the siteI found this site and found out its all a scam. I think the police should get involved with this matter.
i got a brandon james. is that the same one you got? icalled the number but no reply. at first i was worried but i thought i dont owe anybody in PA. so i googled the name and found this site and thank god its all a fraud. i canrest better now
The caller stated there was action against us. Tried call back and nothing.
I recieved a called from this number, the person said their name was Special Investigator Charles Bentley with a the case # G11A-2375, that I need to contact them immediately, the message also stated that this was for a restraining order. I'm not sure how they got my number, but really wish they would stop calling.
really tired of this company calling with a claim number dont know who they are this time was a recording
I recieved sseveral calls from this number. Only they are alling for someone else. SO I ignored it at first-but now they keep calling. Thankfully I looked up the number because I was about to call-because I was under the impression that this was from a police department because that is what the first message lead me to believe.
So I will continue to ignore the calls and report it to the police.
I received this call stating they are from central process service and saying I owe money from a payday loan. When I ask the lady, her name ms. Burton , who was trying g to sue me she could not tell me the exact company and she just said that they work with all this payday loan co. She states I owe about $1000 and if I settle now I only have to pay around $503.00. I never took a payday that much. I have done payday loan and I always pay them. What I'm wondering about is if this loan company has my acct why don't they just take the money I owe. This is really freaking me out. They also said I have 3 days to pay or else I will be serve with a subpoena and have to settle this in court. This has never happen to me before. Why are there people do this for a living...I don't know how they can sleep at night knowing they are lying and harassing people. This people are sick. I'm waiting after 3-4 days see if I get subpoena and then I will believe this is real.
A dear friend received a threating phone call from Central Process Services, you will be reported to our Attorney General!! How dare your firm scam people!!
i recieve a message to call the number 570-983-0544, and that im a respondent and i had a restraining order file against me and when i called all i got was music played and no oned ever pick up
It all makes me crazy! I too have received voicemails both automated (today) and last week from a special investigator at ______ organization (at work & home). I do not have outstanding debt & any debt I own is paid back. Even though I know this I somehow get very upset listening to these calls. I do not know how someone can call you and lie to get $ that is not owed. I'm a professional business person and struggle to compose myself everry time this happens. So far no warrants, no orders, no court dates or police restraining me........from what I do not know. I do not know what these people are or what the he.. is going on - but I do know it's a crock of sh...
