I am having a similar issue!! They called my ex mother in law and said I would have a warrant out for my arrest if I did not pay $900 for two checks wrote in 2007. I called the D.A. office and they said they had no record of any such thing. What should I do?

this person owns this business and this is her address and home number. ALl of these checks are stolen and collected on repeatedly. No matter what they say there is nothing they can do. It's all empty threats. Call the Georgia Attorney General's office, the local newspaper, the governor's office and anyone else you can think of . And tell them you are doing this. Tammy Moore is her partner in crime. I would even call the tv news channels.
rec'd a call from this number wanting to talk with an elderly parent...when i requested to have the appropriate information sent registered to the address, the caller threatened "do you want to be the reason we have to issue a warrent for your mothers arrest"...when asked for their approval to record the call...they refused and ended the call by "may god bless and have a good day".....must be on crack !
THESE PEOPLE START TO THREATEN THAT I OWE THEM MONEY OR THEY WILL SEND A WARRANT TO ME
DONT TRUST ANYBODY WHO CALLS ASKING YOU TO PAY THEM MONEY BEFORE CHECKING YOUR RECORDS OF PAYMENTS !!!!!!!!!
im sorry to tell you but i was also scammed last year and i did the same i sent them money but not to gateway a different company i got scammed and now gateway tried with me but i hung up the phone i dont owe anybody money cause i pay all my bills on time even my collection bills. so im clean please in the fueter dont get fooled !!!! now we learned our lesson .... butrefly
Got a call from Brandy Morrison today stating that I had a serious civil matter that needs to be resolved....I wish I would have taken the call, because after reading all of the complaints I realize it is a scam. I think I will call them back tomorrow and tell them that I am an attorney, and do NOT take to kindly to threats and/or coercion......
My wife received a phone message on her cell phone stating that the person was from Gateway, and that she was calling on a very serious legal matter and criminal legal action would be taken if we did not call her back immediately. I called her back and left hr a message to explain what her call and "case number" was referring to.

Remember - debt is a civil matter, not criminal - you cannot be arrested for failing to pay a loan. These scammers use threatening and illegal language like this to scare people into paying bogus debts. If an alleged debt collector refuses to MAIL (per the FDCPA) proof that you owe a debt to them - they can be considered scammers! No proof of debt - no debt owed.
If you live in the state of Georgia by law they can not legally file any criminal charges against to have you arrested if it has passed 2 years and if it not a felony. Bill collectors are not allowed to call and threaten or harass you either I was receiving calls from this company being threatened about two checks from 2005 it is now 2013 I was crazy enough to let them threaten and strong arm me into paying over 400 for a check written for less than 20 that I found out i had already paid they were then trying to collect on another that was already paid they were not trying to hear that I had already cleared up the matter. They are little blood sucking liars that are out to rip people off. I have contacted lawyers for advice on the matter i have also spoken with judges who willing provided me with the laws and regulations on this matter. This company is located in Loganville, Ga which is in Walton County I Spoke with lawyers and legal aides in that county that have heard of this company. The police department has also had reports about this company bout are unable to settle them because there are so many different addresses for this company. They have already been sued THREE times that I was able to find you can goggle it it's public records. Do not let these people do to you and your family what they did to me once and tried to do to me again
I would report them
This company is real I use to work for them they will try to rip you off by over charging and they can be very rude and if I was you I would report them
My husband got a call today from Brandy for me to return call. When I did, she told me I had 5 bad checks on an account from 2007 with a bank I've never heard of. Said the checks were in mine and my EX husbands name and if I didn send $2397.00 by 5pm today, I would have felony warrants issued by 9am tomorrow for 5 counts of account fraud and bad checks. Very smartass attitude. I asked for a copy of checks to be emailed to me, she said it would be tomorrow but could fax them today. When I gave her fax number, the ' faxing ' dept had already closed for the day. This was @ 1pm. I researched the bank the checks were 'drawn on ' and it has been out of business since 1996. I called her back and all she could say was the checks were wrote in 2007. Then hung up on me. After I researched and found this site, I called once again to tell her to kiss my a** and she wouldn't accept the call. I also looked up the address on Google Earth, and it doesn't exist. Lawrenceville Hwy goes from 4398 to 4418. No 4402 in between. SCAM ARTIST!!!
This is the second time they have called me. Last time i told them that I wanted to see the check and they told me that I should have already received it in the mail. Told them that until the check showing what I owe shows up I wasn't paying.
I have had a similar story happen and I am still receiving calls. I am going to look for the form from the Governor's office and submit it as suggested above but I think those on this site along with myseld should get together and file a civil action lawsuit against this company for violating our rights under the FCRA and wehatever else protects us from predatory debt collectors and scammers!
We would have a strong case and I have saved my voicemails and recorded a few conversations with those that have contacted me from this company. Maybe some of you should do the same.
I got the same call-25.oo check 2008.I believe this is a scam.
I received a call from a women named Brandy stating the check number that my late husband wrote in 2010 in the amount of $25. She told me my name & called me on my cell number. She even told me my address. I asked her why was I just hearing of this & why the supposedly company didn't contact me. She was too send me to my email a copy of the check front & back along with info of this company. As of today, I have not received. I was told also that since my name was on the check regardless of me being the check writer, I was liable & responsible for Civil damages. With this being said, I checked with my bank for verification & so far not so. My advise too all BEWARE!!!!!
Gateway retrieval called my mother and claimed she owed $ 289.00 for a check from 2004.
They claimed to be from the bank the date they called was 4/4/2013 .The next day a charge for
$ 289.00 appeared on my mother's checking account.On saturday 4/6/2013 I went into the bank
and signed papers disputing this charge.One week later $ 289.00 was redeposited to my mother's
checking account.My brother and I are also on her account.Now they are calling me requesting
my email address.They claim to be a debt collection agency but they are scammers preying on
the elderly.Do not give checking account numbers out over the phone.A real bank knows your
These people are a SCAM. Do not return their call. They are using outdated (over 11 year old) database trying to request moneys from very old closed bank and checking accounts. They state they are requesting to resolve the issue before litigation (even referencing a docket number). BEWARE

I told them I want to see a copy of the check and they said they would send it to me but not until Monday but needed the money immediately.
VICTIM OF FRAUD/SCAM
IT IS OBVIOUS YOU ARE PART OF THIS MONEY SCAM BUSINESS!!!
IF THEY ARE SO LEGITIMATE THEN THEY DON'T NEED TO HIDE BEHIND A PHONE CALL. THEY WOULD BE CONDUCTING BUSINESS MATTERS IN A PROFESSIONAL RESPECTFUL MANNER AND NOT WITH DIRTY, INTIMIDATING THREATING TACTICS. SEND PEOPLE THE REQUIRED CORRESPONDENCE ON PROFESSIONAL LETTER HEAD FORMS WITH ALL YOUR ACTUAL PHYSICAL DEMOGRAPHICS, WITH PROPER NAMES AND PROFESSIONAL TITLES.
Victim of fraud/scam
No one is saying they don't want to pay their bill...all anybody wants is for these con artists to stop their harassment. If it is a legitimate issue then by all means send written notification so people know what they are responsible for. The fact that they want to collect $350.00 for a written check of $25.00, is NOTHING MORE THAN A RIP OFF & A SCAM!!!
Thank you Thank you Thank you, my father has dementia and they are threatening me the same way as all of you, they dont care, they will have my father served a warrant and put in jail for a CC Check that was stolen back in 2008 for 37.00, they wanted 375 to settle.
A Michell Townsend called my 82 year old dad to let him know he owed them $350.00 for a $25.00 check he apparently had written. He told her he had nothing to do with his finances and for her to contact his daughter. Ms. Townsend called and left a message for me to call her urgently due to a legal matter and cited a so call case number. She said there were civil penalties involved & that if I didn't call there would be a warrant issue for my dad. When I called she was very demanding for me to pay immediately over the phone. I told her my dad NEVER received any notice of any check and further that he had closed that bank account she was referring to due to someone stealing his check book. He was not advised of any bounced checks nor was he EVER notified by Gateway Retrieval LLC until now only to expect for him to pay them $350.00 for a so call $25.00 check that had been written over six months ago from an account that has been closed. VERY STRANGE, UNPROFESSIONAL & INTIMIDADING TACTICS TO TAKE MONEY FROM PEOPLE. They DO NOT want to give their address & only want to take money payments over the phone from your check card or routing number from account. Sound a bit scam like!!!
This company is a scam and so are the so call companies they represent....They refuse to give you an address and just demand your money to be paid over the phone or they will issue a warrant.
This number is a psychic.They have been defrauding my 87 year old mother out of hundreds of dollars.You call them and you have to leave a message to ask about charges and never hear back.On my mothers bank statement they are listed as The Seer
I recieved a call from them saying i owed 387 dollars on a 24 dollor check and if i did not pay it there would be a warrent issued for my arresst.
