I understand your pain. I am getting the same calls. These Indian/Pakistan guys are frauds. I am so tired of contacting the FTC and all of the other services, but it is what we have to do protect ourselves from these con-artist. Sorry you are going through this, but hopefully it will all work out. Tell them that you are going to contact the FBI.

Got a call from indian guy saying my ss # was being sued for a loan that was in my account. Checked my info with bank, no loan!! He also said I'm to be in court on friday 12-2-2011,in California. When asked where at it California he started using profanity at me and then hung up. I guess since he is in New York and I found out he is not in California, he got alittle mad.

I got a call after I left the office today (half day) , a coworker very upset, saying this man called her and I was being sued and had all sorts of 'serious allegations' against my name and SS#.  I told her to calm down, probably a scam (security breach at work about a month ago and fraudulent activity occurred in my checking account, had to close all and open up new again), and I would call number back that he left to let them have it.  Before I could call them, they were calling my cell.  First call was from an Officer Danny Dawn with the office of "Federal Investigations" stating that my SS # has been blocked due to serious and threatening allegations against me.  He was calling me to help me avoid jail time by making payment for a loan I never received.  Wanted a credit card or debit card # immediately. I told him not to call me again, at work or at home, and if he has a legal matter, notify me in writing or file a lawsuit in my state and serve me with papers.  The guy called again about an hour later with such a bad connection he couldn't hear me tell him off.  Hung up and he called again an hour later this time stating that he was Officer Ralph Watson working for American Legal servicing the region and that they have a lawsuit pending against me and if I want to avoid being arrested or homeless, I will call them to make financial restitution immediately.  He gave his name and number again, stating that I shouldn't even think about disregarding this message if I wanted my life to continue as I know it, then added God bless you, and hung up.  IDIOTS!  As I said, I was victim of fraud about a month ago due to a security breach at work that allowed someone somewhere into m online banking.  Some company who was also staffed by East Indian folks started drawing money out of my account as repayment for a loan they said I had, but never applied for nor received.  My bank filed fraud affidavits, got the $$ back, and opened me up all new accounts. I contacted state, FBI office for my area, and also contacted the legit company American Legal Services to give them a heads up.  They are a legit process serving company in the DC/VA area that have nothng to do with these folks, but these scammers are now using their name.

This is an offshore payday loan debt collection extortion scam that has been going on for at least five years. The FBI is aware of it but is unable to go after those involved due to lack of money and manpower. I looked back and found some old information which may prove to be helpful:

They obtained your information through Teletrack:

Kudos to "Sam" for giving the most intelligent and informative posts on this scam. READ, Bookmark and use as needed:

http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-631-456-4041/2

I have been receiving phone calls from this group since late April / early May of 2010.  There is a good chance that they also attempted to contact me roughly two years ago before I entered into Chapter 7 Bankruptcy protection, as I faintly remember hearing the same script more or less.

As others have stated, the callers are difficult to understand.  Generally speaking their command of the English language is quite poor and their accents are hard to follow. At times they will get certain words or phrases mixed up.  It would be funny if it wasn't for the fact that they had:

a) Your SSN
b) Your home address
c) Your work address
d) Your banking info
e) Names, numbers and potentially the addresses of "references"
f) A complete and total lack of ethics and a basic understanding of the FDCPA.  

I have personally filed reports with the following agencies, often with limited (if any) success:

Local Police
my state's Attorney General's office
FTC
FBI
Secret Service

Generally the local police won't be able to help much.  The callers are using a combination of prepaid cell phones and VoIP, making them difficult to trace.  Also at their disposal are various spoofing tactics being implemented to catch people off guard - meaning the number that appears on your Caller ID isn't the number that is calling you for starters.  Without gaining a subpoena for the billing information for the numbers in question, the local police won't be able to get very far.  

My state's Attorney General's office couldn't offer much assistance either.  I received a form letter in the mail that my complaint was received and I would be contacted if they needed additional info.  It was more or less the same information I obtained from the FTC.  They each advised me not to give the individuals over the phone any account information or to authorize payment.  That's just common sense, though.

I never got anything from the FBI, either.  There is a good chance that since I haven't suffered a monetary loss that my concerns are low on the totem pole.  I hate to say this, but that is truly the case. Unless you were in the hole for a $1,000 (or more) you aren't going to get much more than "sorry to hear about your situation, change your phone number and move on".  I seemed to get some activity from the Secret Service.  I spoke with agent Doug Zloto. (Google him, referencing threads like these plus his name and you'll find his number also)  He seemed to care a bit more than the average person, but after giving him access to my Google Voice account, there has been no further activity from him that I'm aware of.

In the meantime I changed the wireless number the fraudsters had access to, they have no direct way to get a hold of me.  (Calls at work have ceased for some reason)  That in turn resulted in my "references" getting phone calls from the crooks.  Here is a word of caution for women that have been getting these calls - don't say anything and just hang up.  The callers are quite abusive towards women callers.  Why?  Possibly the culture.  If they are Indian / Pakistani, women are second class citizens there.  You will be treated like garbage.  This happened to a family member when she was trying her best to be extremely nice over the phone.  

The callers currently attempt to reach me through the female family member and an unused Google Voice number that they managed to find of mine.  I keep the Google Voice number open because, well, I can't delete it yet.  So, about every day, 4-5 times a day for the last week, I get voice messages from them.  It's usually just two full messages though - the other calls are broken up with static or they are attempts to read the script until the callers then screw up.  Really, they are that adamant on getting the script 100% that they will hang up mid-sentence and call back 30 seconds later.  

At this point it's a stalemate with these people.  

1) While they have the lion's share of information on us, they can't really do anything with this information.  

Why?  Think about it.

If they were to ever take funds out of your account without authorization, it's fraud and worse (for them) it is traceable.  That's why they won't do anything with your information, contrary to threats they make.  The money from your account has to go somewhere, and either your bank or a law enforcement agency can determine where the money was routed.  As a bank customer you are protected - you'd get the stolen money back in your account after 7-10 business days and the bank would be temporarily out the funds deducted from your account while they conducted their investigation.  The bank, along with law enforcement, would track down the fraudsters and apprehend them.  The fraudsters do not want to incur the wrath of a bank, just extort money out of you.  Remember that.    

Your authorization would absolve the bank from any and all liability, leaving you holding the bag.  Never give them authorization for anything - for all you know the call is recorded.  

2) We have no information on them.

Seriously, this has been going on at least since 2008, possibly longer than that based on some accounts. (6 years??? Holy crap!)  You would think someone would have slipped up by now.  Sadly, they haven't.  We can continue to grow our own intel on them and compile lists of aliases and phone numbers used, along with paraphrases of scripts used in order to educate other victims.  I'm actually putting together a site now in the meantime where I'll host audio files and lists of previous numbers used.  800notes.com is great, but no two calls are exactly the same.  It would be nice to have a site dedicated to the scam and how it works.

So that's where I am with these calls.  I have suffered no monetary loss, though I have been harassed both at home and at work.  They threaten me with arrest and other "fun" things in order to get me convinced I have to pay them.  My friends and family have been targeted and local and federal law enforcement agencies haven't been able to put a stop to things.  So, it is what it is.  I am out a wireless phone number I had for roughly six years, which is terrible since I was using that line when looking for a new job.  

Whenever I'm bored I spoof my number using Google Voice and return the calls.  I've called them the poster children for birth control, etc.  Basically a lot of nasty things that I'm sure the moderators here wouldn't appreciate me repeating - bottom line nothing nice.  I always like to close saying their parents must be real proud knowing their sons weren't man enough to get real jobs.  That usually gets a decent response.  

Way I see it - they can't do anything to me. (Despite a threat yesterday that my life would be f'ed up)  They can threaten all they want but my credit is frozen and my bank information has changed.  I've changed the only number they could really access me directly on and I've instructed my employer and family to not answer the calls.  I just call and harass them now when I find a few extra seconds.  What's the worst they can do to me?  Charge me with harassment?  

Nope, then they would have to identify themselves.

Oh, and don't bother contacting Cashnet USA about the calls.  Their "fraud" department could honestly care less.  Their "investigation" is merely a means of buerocratic CYA.  I would even be surprised at this point if actual law enforcement is involved in any shape, way or form at this time.  

There is a good chance that the information these crooks have on us was obtained from Cashnet USA - either from a database leak or from a collector that was once authorized by Cashnet to call on delinquent customers.  The other chance is they have access to Teletrack, and pulled all of our information off of there.

http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-646-274-1143/3

For at least the last four years, possibly longer, a group has been calling former payday loan applicants advising them that they have defrauded a bank and are now being sued for non-payment of a loan.  The callers will claim to be calling on behalf of an attorney's office (name varies), the Dept. of Law and Investigation, ACS, or other similar combinations below:

United Legal Processing Division
Midline Marketing
Crime Monitoring Services
Monetary Crime Division
U.S. National Bank
Attorney General?s Office (usually in California)
American Legal Services
Affidavit Consolidation Services (ACS)

You will be threatened with arrest, a costly trial and possibly worse.  In no shape, way or form can you be arrested for non-payment on a consumer debt.  Do not believe these threats, as they are without merit and cannot be carried out in the manner they allege.  

Who are they?

In the past when pressed by law enforcement for an address, the callers have provided the following information:

David Morgan and Associates
Morgan & Associates
Morgan Associates
954-727-8481
1155 Northwest 85th Street
Wintergarden, Florida  33150
(Address is likely invalid)

The collector's MO matches a once legit collections agency called Ellis Crosby & Associates.  Here are some links on them:

http://www.budhibbs.com/collectorpages/ellis_crosby_and_associates.htm
http://www.budhibbs.com/collectorpages/EllisCrosbyJudgment.pdf

They have been previously fined over $1.3 million for various violations.  They have been known to use phone banks in India to make their calls, which more or less coincides with the difficult to understand accent many of us detect when we are contacted.  

The last time this group went by any "official" name was back in 2008:

Ellis Crosby & Associates / Douglas & Morgan Associates
4494 Southside Boulevard Suite #200
Jacksonville Florida 32216
Phone:  800-928-3536 / (904) 928-3536
(Address is likely invalid)

There are NUMEROUS consumer alerts out against this group of individuals:

West Virginia:
http://www.wvago.gov/internetloanscam.cfm

Missouri:
On July 15th, 2010 a Public Awareness Bulletin was sent out by Missouri Information Analysis Center.  

"..received reports from individuals in Ohio and Illinois reference suspicious telephone calls they received. In both instances, the callers are reporting that a voicemail is received from a man, with a Middle Eastern accent, identifying himself as an officer working with the Financial Crimes Unit.  The message indicates that the reason for the call concerns a loan made by the receiver or someone in the receiver's family. The voicemail requests that a return call be made and a telephone number is provided. When a return call is made, the caller is asked to provide personal identifying information such as their date of birth and social security number.

Reports indicate that the calls are frequent and persistent and that they even threaten arrest or legal action if information or money is not provided. It appears that the individuals making these calls may have access to some records connecting individuals and their relatives.  Missouri does not have a Financial Crimes Unit and all indications are that this is a fictitious agency. If you receive a similar phone call, please be advised that it is a scam and please contact your local law enforcement agency or the Missouri Information Analysis Center at 866-362-6422."

Bottom line:

Do not supply the callers with any additional information.  Inform them you have reported them to law enforcement and hang up.  If you haven't already, go ahead and report the calls to local law enforcement, your state's Attorney General and beyond.  Look up the local Secret Service branch's information in your area and get in contact with an agent there.  

If you ever applied for a cash advance online, your information is out there.  
Possible sources for the breach of your privacy are:

* The scammers obtained your information from Teletrack - a reporting agency used by many cash advance lenders to determine their risk lending to you.  The service is able to tell cash advance lenders if you have existing loans with other companies, for example.  Many state laws prohibit borrowers from having more than two cash advances out at the same time.

* The scammers created their own fake payday loan application site.  People looking for a cash advance went to the site and applied, thus freely providing the scammers with their information for malicious use at a later time.  

* The scammers were able to get into the database(s) of cash advance lenders - probable targets being Sonic Payday and Cashnet USA.  


How to protect yourself:

* Inform your employer.  You are likely getting calls at home and/or at work, so make sure your employer is aware the calls are part of a scam and to not take them seriously.  Advise the callers that they are no longer allowed to call you at work.  If they continue to call, document the date and time of the calls you received.  Save voice mails left if at all possible.  

* Change your number(s).  For some this may not be an option, for others a one-time number change can be done free of charge.

Be advised - any references you listed on your payday loan application will be contacted.  Let those people know that this is a scam, and they can disregard.

* Use Google Voice.  Google Voice is a great replacement voice mail system for just about any phone number you use.  Messages can be transcribed and voice mail recordings can be saved as mp3 files.  

Pro Tip - call the scammers with a Google Voice number before turning off your old phone numbers.  Make sure when you call you identify yourself so they can start up their script.  At any point after they have your information pulled up just hang up.  They will then start religiously calling your Google Voice number.  At this point, you are free to change your regular phone number(s) and enjoy not having these people ever call you again.  (And laugh at the fact these people are basically talking to a brick wall several times a day)

The scammers change their numbers frequently.  Law enforcement used to think it was because the callers ran out of minutes on their prepaid wireless accounts or they were shuttered due to fraud, but now they understand it's simply to evade detection by savvy consumers online.  With the proliferation of VoIP, it's even easier for the crooks to stay a couple of steps ahead of law enforcement.  Below is just a sampling of the 30+ numbers that have been used in recent memory.

So can they really do anything to you?

It's not a simple yes or no answer.  Logic dictates that, if they really wanted to take you for a ride and drain your bank accounts, they already would have.  

So, why haven't they?  

Authorization.  

Why do you think you are being called so much?  Perhaps it is because they like the sound of your voice?  No, they have to have your authorization to take any form of payment from you, period.  The callers know their audience, and that audience is typically a bunch of people that have applied for payday loans in the past.  Most of those people they call couldn't afford an attorney if they wanted one, and are so used to receiving collections calls that so long as they sound like a real collector, they will likely be perceived as one.

Furthermore, they don't even really want to talk to your attorney - that just sounds official and scary enough.  A real attorney would take the callers to task and write them off as two-bit con artists.  The callers need you, in writing, to authorize payment against the fictitious debt they claim you owe.  Go ahead, ask them for proof you owe the debt - more commonly known as verification of debt.  See what they say.  A phone authorization carries very little weight, so if they have something signed by you on file, you are done for - and the callers know that.  That authorization is the only thing these callers are doing by the book, and for good reason.  If they just went all willy nilly and made an ACH debit from your checking account, without your written approval, you could in turn report the transaction as fraudulent to your financial institution.  In about 7-10 business days, you would get the funds returned to your account.  Then the scammers would be up against a bank and their team of lawyers and investigators.  

Bottom line:

If you haven't paid the callers a dime, don't.  If you planned on paying them to shut them up, just don't.  Remember - you are not being contacted by a legally licensed, ethically owned and operated collector.  Read up on the FDCPA - http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/credit/cre27.pdf - and know your rights.

PS--The FBI sent out a Press Release on this scam just last week:

Extortion Scam Related to Delinquent Payday Loans

Washington, D.C.
December 07, 2010  FBI National Press Office
(202) 324-3691

? filed under: Press Release

The Internet Crime Complaint Center has received many complaints from victims of payday loan telephone collection scams. Callers claim the victim is delinquent in a payday loan and must repay the loan to avoid legal consequences. The callers purport to be representatives of the FBI, Federal Legislative Department, various law firms, or other legitimate-sounding agencies. They claim to be collecting debts for companies such as United Cash Advance, U.S. Cash Advance, U.S. Cash Net, and other Internet check-cashing services.

According to complaints received from the public, the callers have accurate data about victims, including Social Security numbers, dates of birth, addresses, employer information, bank account numbers, and the names and telephone numbers of relatives and friends. How the fraudsters obtained the personal information varies, but in some cases victims have reported they completed online applications for other loans or credit cards before the calls started.

The fraudsters relentlessly call the victim?s home, cell phone, and place of employment. They refuse to provide any details about the alleged payday loans and become abusive when questioned. The callers have threatened victims with legal actions, arrests, and, in some cases, physical violence if they do not pay. In many cases, the callers harass victims? relatives, friends, and employers.

Some fraudsters have instructed victims to fax a statement agreeing to pay a certain amount, on a specific date, via a pre-paid Visa card. The statement further declares the victim will never dispute the debt.

If you receive these calls, do not follow the caller?s instructions. Rather, you should:

Notify your banking institutions.
Contact the three major credit bureaus and request an alert be put on your file.
Contact your local law enforcement agencies if you feel you are in immediate danger.
File a complaint at www.IC3.gov.
Tips to avoid becoming a victim of this scam:

Never give your Social Security number?or personal information of any kind?over the telephone or online unless you initiate the contact.
Be suspicious of any e-mail with urgent requests for personal financial information. The e-mail may include upsetting or exciting but false statements to get you to react immediately.
Avoid filling out forms in e-mail messages that request personal information.
Ensure that your browser is up-to-date and security patches have been applied.
Check your bank, credit, and debit card statements regularly to make sure that there are no unauthorized transactions. If anything looks suspicious, contact your bank and all card issuers.
When you contact companies, use numbers provided on the back of cards or statements

These heartless scam artists been calling me for months stating i took a loan out from them and did not pay back.  Today on October 11 at 6 p.m. i received the worst call yet. He called me a dumb american and said he is from Pakistan and that there are 1000 s of Americans giving his company tens of thousands of dollars a month. Then he actually threatened me by saying Pakistan is terrorists and we as Americans are in trouble. I feel very violated. I want everyone to know that this is a scam and they will not stop. Just report all their phone numbers and keep records. He also made dirty comments about my mother and my family. The bad part is he does have all of my info.

I just returned a call from a man with an Indian accent that called me about a legal matter regarding myself.  He told me legal charges would be brought against me because I had taken out a payday loan.  I told him I had never done that and I wanted to see a copy of the contract I was suppose to have signed.  He told me he could not send me a copy and that if I did not settle right now, he would see me in court.  I asked him what court, that I would be there and he hung up.  I agree that this is a scam, to bad these people get away with this type of behavior.

I have had many calls today, they have called my cell, work and home.  They refuse to say why their calling. I'm going to be turning it over to the police office where I work.

I too have gotten several calls ffrom 646-597-9030, people with very heavy indian accents, stating that I ow for a payday loan from last year, I didn't take one out because I didn't have a checking account, they state they have blocked my ssn, there is a court date for me on June 10th, to appear in court, I never received anything from them about this, they call everyday, stating I owe something like 1500 bucks but they will settle for around 500, after reading about this number andall the comments, I feel a little better, I was actually going to pay them!!!  They are very rude as well.  So this is a total scam???

I have received numerous phone calls from these people. I have told them several times that if I had a law suit pending against me then they could send me the paper work. I have recieved phone calls on my cell phone, calls at work. I have hung up on them numerous times and they still call back. The guy today said he was with the FBI.
 Someone has got to be able to put a stop to these idiots.

I have recieved calls like this about 2 yrs ago,  a guy saying his name is Officer Franks from the Federal Department of Justice, which doesn't exist, called my job saying i took out a payday loan and never paid it, I have to pay $500 to him now with credit card to avoid being arrested. He called my job, which I work for the Air Force so I thought that was odd, then when he said a loan for $500 made it worse because I live in Cali, and Cali laws only allow a payday loan no more than $245. And his accent was so middle eastern it was hard to argue with him. He kept saying he'd send someone to my job and arrest me and i will get fired from my job and not be able to get another one. My boss was standing right there listening and laughing. He even said he had my IP address and gave me a time of day when i did it, and i was at work at that time frame on a Government comp which I know he can't access. Once i started being really upset my boss got on the phone told the guy he is calling an air foce base for an employee who has clearances and works for the gov. That our lines are always recorded and we were going to contact the legal office if he called again. I haven't heard anything in 2 yrs, and now suddenly it's the same exact name calling with a different number but a 646, and when i call it back its a disconnected number. It's full scam because I contact the BBB and the military legal dept to track this so dont' get worrie or believe it. This is how the terrorists get there money now, by scaring and scamming us

I received a telephone call on my cell phone from this number.  The first person I talked to put to another person who stated that he was an officer with (and I could not understand him) he stated that they were sending someone out to my home and my office to pick me up for this debt.  When I told him that I would be reporting him to the FBI he said go ahead we are the FBI and you are on a recorded line.  I told him at that point well that is good if I am being recorded as now i know that the FBI he works for is part of a terroist group.  He got very upset and started yelling at me.  I hung up and they did not call back.

I got my first call from this number today. They left a message that it was a legal matter...blah! blah! blah! and they was gonna take me to jail. Well, I've been getting the same calls from 205-417-2414 and I spoke to them this morning when they called. I told them they was scamming people on the internet and that I wasn't playing into it and I filed a complaint with the FBI, the FCC and the Federal Communications Commission. Which I have. The 205 number is located in a little town in AL and is a landline from what I can tell. The woman hung up on me. They then called my friend and freaked him out about being arrested because of me. I did inquire about an online loan a few weeks ago but I never committed to it nor did I give out my Bank information. But now I'm getting about 200+ emails a day from lenders who want me to make a loan with them. WTF?? Talk about third party websites. I can handle the emails, I just delete them but they are annoying as are the calls. Yesterday alone I got 27 calls from the 205 number and after I got online to investigate the number and found this site and read all the complaints about them that were exactly the same thing they said to me and using the same name. This morning they just hung up on me but have called back a couple of times since. Like someone above stated, if you ignore the calls they will eventually stop harassing you. That is what my best friend told me who happens to be a lawyer. She said they got my info from the site that I filled out the application on and as long as I play their game they will continue to call. But if I call their bluff and tell them that I know they are a scam on the internet or just ignore the calls they will eventually stop. It's just a matter of time and how patient you can be. Another thing you might consider, after talking to my friend and my local police department, you can not be arrested for a debt. A bad check, yes, but not a debt.
