I got a call from this number and they also "God Blessed" me.  However, I was not so fourtante.  I spoke w/ a man by the name of PATRICK JOHNSON. He had convinced me that I was going to TO assrested for a defualt for a on line pay day loan. This was on a Sat.  He stated that I needed to get attonery.  He also, read me my rights.  I allowed this man to SCAM me out of $998.50.  I have filed a complaint with MO attorery gernals office.  I don't believe that I will receive any of my money.  I do think that I should spread the word to all.  IF ANYONE contacts you concerning a debt you owe.  Check with www. annual credit report or www.freecredit report.com.  If this debit does not show on your credit report IT IS A SCAM!!!! call your state attonery gernals office.  It is the only way you can  figh this SCAM!!!!

These guys appear to be linked to numerous other "spoofed" numbers, and agency names. They are targeting anyone that has had a payday loan. See below for links and more information. when a number is reported enough, they seem to switch it up. DO NOT PAY THEM ANYTHING. Do report it to your attorney general in your state, and you can also file a police report. Typcially Atty General's will not launch a full fledged investigation without enough complaints. Do your part and complain to them. Most state atty generals have a website to file complaints online. Simply search "(your state) Attorney General"
See below
http://whocallsme.com/Phone-Number.aspx/9044259141#p4apCaFNFZQCcwAjLUQq_BA

Here are a few news reports and government advisories warning consumers about this scam:

ABC News:  http://abcnews.go.com/Business/story?id=5621205&page=1
West Virginia Attorney General:  http://www.wvago.gov/internetloanscam.cfm
WTAE TV4, Pittsburgh:  http://www.thepittsburghchannel.com/call4action/17285785/detail.html
Florida Commissioner of Consumer Services:  http://www.800helpfla.com/newsletter/2008/092008.html

This is a very active group of scammers, many of whom are calling from India (and probably other countries) and are in cahoots with a group of American pay day loan scammers. Typical of many financial scams of this variety, they usually demand payment via Western Union or MoneyGram or credit card. They use any number of phony names such as US National Bank, Federal Investigation Bureau, US Legal Investigation Bureau, US Federal Bank, Sonic Bank, Hopkins Law Office, Christian Nicholas & Associates, CashNet, Financial Crime Prevention, National Crimes Division, United Legal Processing, Morgan Associates, United Pay Services, National Processing, White Collar Crime Unit, David Morgan & Assoicates and many more.  These criminals also use many phone numbers from many area codes; they're probably using caller-id spoofing software and/or VoIP to disguise their real location.

These scammers attempt to extort money from consumers with a myriad of false and illegal threats, and alternately pose as debt collectors, federal and state law enforcement officers, lawyers and bankers. Their trademark is to use meaningless legalese phrases like "We are downloading warrants against you" or "We are filing an affidavit against you."  Other trademark phrases include threatening the consumer with ridiculous phrases such as "If you don't pay then only God can help you" or "If you don't call me back then I can only wish you good luck."

The main thing to remember is that anytime someone calls you demanding money to prevent your arrest, or demanding your lawyer's name so they can sue you, it is ALWAYS a scam. No debt collector (let alone criminals posing as debt collectors) has the authority to have anyone arrested for anything. (And it's illegal to them to threaten such a thing.) And since these foreign scammers routinely impersonate law enforcement, it's also important to remember that American law enforcement officers aren't in the business of debt collection.  (Debt is a civil, not a criminal, matter.)

A consumer posting a complaint about these same scammers at http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-718-831-7157 notes that 718-831-7157 is associated with an India-based "outsourcing" telephone bank.  Though a reverse search on WhitePages.com shows that 718-831-7157 is an unlisted land line in New York City, information on Debtbuyers.Com shows that that number is used by India-based Intellisourze. (Source: http://www.debtbuyers.com/debtbuyers.asp ) My guess is that it's a VoIP phone number.

This is another piece of the puzzle that fits in perfectly with other information about this scam. There are some reports on 800Notes that have suggested that the crooks behind this offshore scam are also the crooks behind the notorious Bass/Ellis Crosby & Assoc./States Predisposition scams in Florida and Georgia. The interesting thing is that the number of complaints on here about the US National Bank/US Legal Investigation/Federal Investigation scam skyrocketed *after* April 7, 2008 when Florida obtained a $1.3 million judgment against Ted Ellis Crosby, shutdown his operations and barred him from ever conducting debt collections in Florida (
http://myfloridalegal.com/newsrel.nsf/newsrel ... 5257424005858A6 )  There's certainly a good chance that the crooks placing these calls from India are doing so on behalf of the American crooks behind the Crosby/Bass/States Predisposition scams.

Here's the contact information for the phone bank in India:

IntellisOurzE BPO
701, Sapphier, Nr. Cargo Motors,
C.G. Road Navrangpura,
Ahmedabad - 9. (Guj.) INDIA.
E-Mail: info@intellisourze.com
Website: www.intellisourze.com

A check on the domain name "intellisourze.com" shows that the website and name registration was created on May 8, just one month *after* the Crosby scams were shut down in Florida:

Domain Name: INTELLISOURZE.COM
Registrant:  Pragra Infratech Pvt. Limited.

Expiration Date: 08-May-2009
Domain servers in listed order: ns5.znetindia.com ns4.znetindia.com
(Source: http://whois.domaintools.com/intellisourze.com )

Though scam calls from these crooks have been going on long before May 8, the frequency of complaints about these calls increased considerably after Crosby was shut down in early April.

This is conjecture, but appearances suggest that Crosby and company were originally running a two-pronged payday loan scam operation -- with some calls being made from Jacksonville, Florida and other calls being made from a phone bank in India (and possibly other countries); then, after the Florida Attorney General shut down the Crosby scams in Florida, the Crosby crooks transferred most of their scam efforts to the India phone bank.


By the way, here's just a *small* sample of numbers used by this particular group of scammers. Read the reports and you'll see the same pattern time and again -- phony organization names, thick foreign accents, and oddly worded threats that are so melodramatic and ridiculous that it's laughable:

These people call me all day and all night long--as late as 11:30 PM.  They call me at work, and they leave long messages on my home machine until it is full.  This has been going on for about two months.  I cannot understand what "Victor Richardson" is saying to  me, but he always ends with "God Bless You" or "May God give you luck," or a similar finish.  The calls are rude, and they are threatening.  I refuse to say a single word to "Victor," as my attorney advised me that this is a scam and I should not agitate him or argue with him.  I don't have a loan out, nor am I involved in any defaults.   However, I am going to have to change my bank account as there are several small but unauthorized withdrawals within the last month.  I don't know if these withdrawals are connected, but my bank is helping me check the origin of the withdrawals, as they are referenced to a phone number. Of course, all of this is a major inconvenience since I pay all my bills online and will have to change every single account and ACH withdrawal that I authorize. I am furious about this and not just for myself. I do not understand why this company is not prosecuted since so many people have contacted their state's attorney general's office and have taken other legal steps to protect their privacy and their money. It appears that "Victor" is being protected while his victims have to try to think like the lowlife that he is in order to discourage his calls.  Clearly, we are not going to receive assistance from the organizations that have been established to protect our rights and privacy.   The last few times he has called I immediately play an excessively loud and vulgar ring tone that I downloaded to  my cell phone and he hangs up.  In addition, when I am grading papers in the evening, I turn my phone ringer down as low as I can, and program the phone to only ring twice.  I also turn off my machine so he can't tie that up.  When I take the time to go through this procedure he eventually stops calling, but he always calls back the next day.  I have called and written my attorney general's office, and the police department. I have not had a reply from the Atty. General's office, and the police have told me it's just a scam and not to talk to him.   Next, I am going to try to get the phone company to block the number, but he has used several other numbers, and I imagine he has a whole list of numbers from which he can call. I hope others who have become victims of this scam artist will be vigilant in reporting the calls.  Hopefully, strength in numbers will help us regain our privacy and security.

Caller left a voicemail on my cell phone stating this was "an urgent, time sensitive manner" and to call back right away.  Very thick accent, difficult to understand.  Caller's name was Lisa Fernandez; phone number originated from a (212) area code (New York).  Called phone number she gave in the message and spoke with "Lisa Fernandez" who was telling me (from what I could understand) that there was a lawsuit filed against me for money laundering, due to a Payday loan from May 2008.  (I inquired about such a loan, but never applied for or actually received one.) I was told that I was due in court in the state of California on Monday morning, that I should get an attorney and that if I didn't, don't be surprised if the police show up at my home or place of employment to arrest me.  Caller kept insisting that I received the loan and haven't made payments on it in over a year and that I now owe them $5000.  She had my home address, phone number, last four digits of my SSN, bank account number/info and names of people I have used as reference sources (my mom and a friend).  I asked to speak with someone who spoke english as their first language but the woman would not cooperate, kept pursuing this matter even though I told her I had NO idea what she was talking about.  I got so frustrated, I eventually hung up on her.

Was relieved to find this website and see that other people were getting the same calls from this phone number and that this is a scam.

Called Equifax to place a 90 day fraud alert on my credit report/account.  Also called Social Security Administration fraud line to set an alert on my SSN.  Finally, called my bank to close my account...who, by the way, notified me of some activity already taking place on my account that was not made by me!

I have also had several calls from this number.  Identified as ACS employee Chris Thompson.  I was told I was being sewed for Federal Bank violation, check fraud, and theft by deception for a pay day loan i defaulted on.  I told the man i have never had a pay day loan and asked what the name and phone number of the police department or judicial branch that was charging me.  Them man started yelling at me for not wanting to pay them, told me to contact my attorney and hung up on me.  They have called me 6 times in less than 24 hours 4 of which have been since this call.  My attorney advised me to not speak to them again and let me know it was most likely a scam.  I also have fraud protection and identity theft protection which have attorneys to work for you at no additional charge.  I pay $36.00 a month for this protection.  I have also made a call to The Colorado Attorney General's Office and filed a complaint.  I will also be calling the phone company and letting them know I will be pressing harassment charges on this company

I had the exact same thing happen yesterday (5/7/07).  Could barely understand these individuals, and they had all my personal information (bank account, ss#, etc).  They stated I defaulted on a loan, and owed them almost $1,000.  This is a total scam. I am changing my bank account information, and I also called Equifax. I would suggest you call the credit bureau , and place a flag on your credit report.  You can also pay for "ID patrol".  $15 a month, but allows you to check your report daily, and they will contact you if anyone attempts to use your personal information! All 3 credit bureaus will update accordingly, after you call one bureau.  No need to call all 3!!!!

Here is what I plan to do.

1) Contact the DA's office person I know
2) Call the so-called company back and play dumb, get all the business info I can get.
3) Call the so-called company back again and notify them they are being recorded.  
4) File a complaint with my local Better Business Bureau.  It may go round robin and they may not find anything but may get on a list somewhere
5) Report it to the FBI.  They are tracking some internet scams now.

What is everyone else doing?

Good luck.

Debt Collector
I've had it with these internet scams.  Got the same call/message.

Here's the thing.  Debt Collection agencies may be rude but they would not threaten you.  Most just want to get the money back.  Most will also provide a reference or case.  And most would be an toll free call.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Toll free calls can be scams too.  Apprently you can get a number and not have it trackable say by, police.

I knew this was fishy as soon right away.  I will be returning the scare factor since I know someone in my District Attorney's office.

IT IS A COMPLETE SCAM!!!  GOD KNOWS WHAT THEY WILL COME UP WITH NEXT!!!

nunmber was 714-783-2216,  Bruce something or other left me an urgent phone message telling me to call him,  I did, He transferred me to a jason something or other, jason said that under a company named "fastcash" i had borrowed money and did not pay it back.  He said it was wire transferred to my bank and that i had agreed to a direct withdrawal to repay the loan.  He said the withdrawal had been denied and that i was now being charged with theft by deception, interstate wire fraud, and something else.  ALL very serious federal charges.  If i wanted it to go away i could pay now and everything would come out fine.  Or i could hire a lawyer in the state of ca where the charges were being brought.  The end result was he wanted to "verify" my account info and address and social security number.  I refused to answer yes to any of his questions and asked for a supervisor,  He hung up the phone.  I called back and said i was recording this conversation and needed to know who was prosecuting me and the name of an attorneys office i could get ahold of someone at so i could resolve this.  He hung up on me.  I called him 15 more times and he hung up every time i said this was being recorded.  He couldn't tell me an amount, the date, the number for fastcash, or anything else pertinent.  I saved his voice mail, I am going to have it transcribed at my bank through a public notary and a witness, i also changed my account info with my bank and any wire transfers out of my account must have my verbal authority before they will be allowed.  Also i filed a report with the local pd and i am calling the states attorney's office in the morning.

I received a call from these people and called back.  When I started asking questions they were rude and hung up.  Apparently they are trying to collect on a payday loan.  I am working with PDL to clear it up, but they will not talk to them at all.  Trying to get a fax number to have documents faxed to them, but am unable.  Yesterday, I received three calls from them.  This morning before the rep from PDL call them to tell them they should be working with them and not me, my first call came at 6:30 a.m.  I am putting a compliant in with the Fair Trade Commission on these people - they are rude. Company is ACS.  They also told me yesterday they were calling from the LA Courthouse and my call would be recorded. I told them I was recording them also.

I got the same call at home and at work.  I talked to someone name Lisa Fernandez with a heavy accent.  I can't understand them all.  After Lisa gave me the whole threatening speech, she then transferred me to Julian Marshall.  He did the same threat to me and than I have couple of hours to come up with the money.  Basically, I had asked a friend who works in law office and I made him call in my behalf and maybe I can find out whether this loan is real, but they gave him a runaround and my friend told me that they obviously a fraud and that I should not worry about anything.  The law firm advised me to record our conversation and letting them know that I'm recording the conversation and will turn it over to my local police and file complaint on them.  I intend to do that.
