I got the same call over and over again. They really had me going for a minute. They even called my job. But they couldnt tell me any real information about the loan. Just told me it was problably anytime in the past. That is what made me think. They told me that I had to go purchase a prepaid card at cvs or walgreens to pay it over the phone cause they could not take a debit card cause of the case against. That they were gonna have me arrested. Until my sister and my friends let me know that there was a scam going around. If you want to be safe dont input any information online and change your number that is what I did. Im not saying all internet sites are dangerous. Just make sure that it is a secure site and that you find out whether they sell your information.
not paying the game

It needs to stop!
File a complaint with the attorney general and FTC. http://www.naag.org/ http://www.ftc.go
They call relatives, neighbors and employers before contacting you directly.
Read whole article about fake debt collectors here - http://www.fdcpa.me/fake-process-server-injunction/
The debt collectors allegedly often instructed their first-level collectors not to call the consumer directly but rather to call the consumer?s current employer or a family member in order to create a false sense of urgency so that the consumer will pay before thinking about his or her rights.
Other debt collectors have been known to initiate contact by calling a couple of neighbors in order to humiliate and intimidate the consumer. The tactic is so common that debt collectors have a name for it ? ?block parties?.
The debt collectors allegedly told the friends, neighbors, and employers that they were attempting to serve the consumer with ?papers? or pleadings pertaining to a lawsuit.
Defendants collectors allegedly also left messages with third parties for them to pass along to the consumer. These messages included a ?case number? and a callback number and often also included a threat that the consumer must call back that day or else the consumer would be personally served with process to appear in court.
The complaint alleged that, in some instances, the debt collectors even posed as being from the sheriff?s department and threatened to arrest the consumer unless the consumer called back promptly.
The debt collectors? written scripts (?talk offs?) and policies instruct the first line collectors to say things which violate the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
For example, the ?New Hire Pointers? instruct collectors to do the following :
?when first coming to an account it is always best to call the [place of employment] first.?
?contact relatives instead of the debtor on the initial phone call to create urgency?
?when doing a standard talk off and the person on the phone is prying ? it is best to say you are a process server and due to the federal privacy act you are not given that information.?
The debt collectors? standard ?talk offs? illustrate how debt collectors often use false threats of immediate lawsuits to coerce payment :
?I am (Miguel Davis / Veronica Garcia) and am calling to see if there will be someone at home to receive legal documents to go to court.
Sir / Madam the service processors will try to serve these documents twice(2X).
Sir / Madam must respond or appear in court. If unable to do so, [they] should say so immediately. What I will do is give you the number of the legal office and the case number. Do you have pencil and paper?
The phone number is *** and the case number is ***
Now I?m going to write down now that I spoke to *** and if Sir / Madam do not say anything I will have the processor deliver these legal documents?.
this guy keeps calling me stateing he is a state attorney saying i owe money i have asked that he not call me again

I was getting the same threatening calls from these people. I would always ask for them to send the debt in writing to me and they would say the Sheriff will deliver it in 30 minutes to my door. Needless to say no sheriff. I told them to take my number off thier call list. They said they would and then would call back again.
Finally I called them and told them one more time to remove me, said they would and they called again. When they did I told them again to remove me and they said they would. I immediately called back rang 3 times and went dead. Did that 5 times in a row and finally someone answered and asked me why I keep calling them. I told him I was going to call them as many times as they called me. Guy (who spoke good english) called me an A...Hole and said I get it we won't call again. It's been a few days but still no more calls....
Scam! They call and try to upset you or trick you into sending money by saying have your lawyer call. This is a scam for money do not send anything and do not give any information
I have been getting call as well for the past 3 days like 5 times at a time
You should do what I do and just start calling him and harrassing him. I did it all day today and it was hilarious!
I spent the whole day harassing this guy. He will eventually answer and then just screw with him. He got so mad he just started calling me from different numbers calling me an A-Hole :-)
Ha! My girl got a call from this guy at 6:30am saying the police we're on their way for some bad check non-sense. Well If you guys call the number he will eventually answer. I spent the whole day harassing this guy. It was hilarious. He got so mad he started calling me from different numbers calling me an A-Hole. :-)
I used a soundboard from a site called ebaumsworld. I used the Arnold Schwartzennegar (close enough) soundboard. Ticked the guy off so bad. Sometimes he would answer and immediately hang up. I WOULD ASK EVERYONE TO JUST CALL THIS GUY ONCE AND JUST SCREW WITH HIM. IT'S TOO MUCH FUN FOR JUST ME! :-)
Thank you for your post. I just encountered this today and this same guy called me on my work #. I tried to call the California State Attorney General's office with no help, then I checked out this attorney Kevin Peterson, his license per CA Bar became inactive as of 1/1/2002, I called the local PD and informed that if I had any criminal issues that would not call me but give me some matching bracelets, then I called the FBI per the urging of the DOJ in Imperial CA. I called and informed the FBI who then told me to go to my local LAPD and do a ID theft report. Went to LAPD and gues what, MY RECORD IS CLEAN...can you imagine how many people have been taken advantage of regarding this matter? UGGHHHH.
I have received several messages today from this number threatening me. I have been through this for the last 10 years and have reported to my local State and have court papers stating i am not to be bothered by Arrowhead Investments(if this is who this number is related to) which he will give no information. I have told him to send me paperwork at my hiome and never get anything. Another number he is using is 916-243-5985.
I do not wnat this person calling me anymore at my work number 253-272-1927 or my home number 253-475-1653. how do I stop this?
I hate to inform all of you but they are calling from various numbers coming from various states, I have recieved calls from Cali,NY, and Texas was the last one! Errrrrr Im getting so aggravated with this crap.
I got the same call from a Sarah good with a Indian accent left a message for me to return the call me or my attorney.this is the second time they done called and left a message nd the call is becoming earlier and earlier is there any number to call and report to. I already contacted my bank just to be on the safe side.
This man Name Ron Watson called my employer and said that I took out a loan and they where putting out a warrant for for my arrest. I then asked what whats the account number, what account was in put in he then said dont worry about it we are going to get you locked up and told him to do what you have to do. This is a scam they told my employer lies to get me to call them back beware that this is a scam.
This is a call that states they are with Cash advance USA. The guy on the phone has a very heavy accent.He then states that they have charges that are pending.They threaten to have you arrested at your job and say that you must have an attorney. They give you a number to call and another heavy accented person say they are with the California State Attorneys Office.This is a total scam...
I'm so sad because now days even a scammer doesn't want to try really hard to pull this out.
They are not even try to be american and using a very very old everybody known method.
If you want to be a scammer, try harder. You have my 1 cent.
