They are truly scammers. They have a bunch of YOUR information and call everyone and your mother about an old debt you used to owe. Don't worry people, they can't do anything about it if you guys don't pay it's alright. They just want to try and scare you like they did me. THEY JUST TRY TO SCARE YOU. DONT PAY THEM A THING OR YOUR A DMBASS!!!

Follow the steps in what you need to know. A legitimate debt collector agency should not have a problem with giving you a real business name and address you can google and verify via google street view, BBB etc.
For extortion Scam Operations, file reports with the FBI, your state attorney general and Department Of Justice,FTC & FCC..
And folks should consider looking at maybe getting call blocking device or phone..

They have been calling me like crazy. Saying that i owe a credit card from 9 yrs ago and that ill be served and sent to court if i dont pay. I asked for proof of debt in writing and they quickly sent me an email with a word format that i could do myself. Also, when we spoke, the guy was telling me how i was gonna be sent to court but that he was gonna call the creditor to see if we could agree on a payment..he put me on hold for less then 30 seconds and then he told me that they accepted a settlement. There is no way on earth that they called and talked about my case in that little of a time. The scary part is that they had my last 4 of social. They also called work and left message with hr department. Its so annoying and did scare me. I still think its a scam and that they are trying to get me to pay. i havent received anything through mail. I will wait and see if i get anything legit through mail.
they also called me from the 626 area code. email was from firstname.lastname@example.org
and they said they where from Tand C something company and the voicemail said they where calling from superior legal firm..same area code.
They called my dad today saying that someone filed a complaint against me. Said he was an agent but not with who or what department. He said he has been attempting to contact me. Which is weird cause I've lived in the same place for years, had the same number for years and same job. So total bs.
Had the same guy call me looking for my sister and said he was Michael Evan and left numbers for my sister to call Michael Stafford. He said he was a private investigator and insinuated that my sisters wages were going to be garnished. It is Trans Continental Affiliates (TCA), a California debt-collection agency who currently has charges against them by the Federal Trade Commission for using deceptive practices when attempting to collect debts which is in violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act..
this so BS period they need to stop calling me
Received a call from Michael Bronson of Legal Support Services asking that I call Michael Stafford the case manager at TCA due to lack of appearance and or legal proceedings would be initiated. However in order to be charged with lack of appearance a person has to be served first and legal proceedings started. Very pushy, and no information of relevance was shared, the way The so called Michael Bronson of legal support services conducted himself i knew something was not right.
they called my work telling the person that answered that i had 24 hours to respond or i would be served. and when i called them back, they would not give me any information and wanted my birthdate and social security number and when i refused, they hung up on me. they only threatened court action but would give me no more information unless i gave them information. i asked the name of the company and they said it was t c and associates. they said they were a litigation company.
very rude and disturbing called and caller id says PRIVATE
got basically the same message left, caller id says PRIVATE . Have no idea of who or what they want. Haven't been or received anything in writing to support this.
I've received 4 calls from this number. The caller says I may be cited for "a possible failure to appear". First, I haven't been summoned for any reason for anything and the stated reason is garbled.
Recieved a call from 626 765-5280. He wouldn't Identify himself and where he was from. He said someone filed a complaint and if I didn't call back by the end of the day, I would be in a lot of trouble. I have no idea who or what this person wants. If I knew what company, I could resolve it. This is bogus. I refused to be intimitated.
