I started getting phone calls from them last October. it started with mark, a process server that could never find me and believe me I am not that hard to find. He would call maybe once a month and leave a message, he said it was a fraud case. well, I knew then it was a lie. I have never nor will I ever be guilty of fraud or any other crime. Today a female voice left a message to call them today to stop an action in regards to federal article 807.11. That article refers to the debt collector. They have to tell you all the details of why they are calling. It does not refer to the consumer. I think it is a scam . I am not calling back.
I just had someone from this group calling my work cell number. They were tryiing to reach my daughter saying it was for check and wire fraud. The guy gave me a phone number and a case number. I think they are debt collectors.
My husband and I received a call from a lady named Mrs.Jones from segal Bennett & associates and she told us the same thing. My husband did the stupid thing and pay her with our pre-paid debit card, but she told us if we did not pay he would go to jail and I told him not to pay unless he was sure it was a legit company. So I feel bad for us all out there who get scammed by people like this who take our hard earned money we work for. So for everyone who may decide to get a payday loan or who has gotten one please be careful of company's like this.
I'm recieving the same phone call. They first called my work and told the assistant that if I didnt call them back that same day that I would be served with papers the next day either at home or work. So I called and spoke with a Jessica Ortiz telling me that I had a loan that had not been paid so in order for them not to serve me I had to make an arrangement to pay $100 by that tuesday then make payments for 3 months of $344, so when the payment for $100 did not go through I got a call from thier private courier saying that I had to be avail at my house or place of employment with a witness and if I wasnt there they would take it as a direct refusal and will result in a missed court appearence, also said it could be stopped by calling 1-855-693-7745 with a case # that he had for me. Not gonna lie at first was really gonna pay them the money, but i dont know if this is a scam or what? So if anyone knows anything please let me know...

Rodney Anthony Giove, of Niagara Falls, NY started out associated with a Niagara Falls, NY law firm. He either could not cut it, was fired or likely too inept to practice law. He now can be seen driving his new Range Rover around Niagara Falls LOADED with cash, he makes from his new career renting his law license out as a debt collector.
His new partners; Douglas J. Mackinnon, Mark Bohn and company make up the nucleus of the WORST debt collection organization in America.
It should be made perfectly clear that Rodney is incapable and has NEVER litigated a collection account under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), the federal law that regulates debt collectors. They cannot, they have NO training, and rented law license are NEVER used in a courtroom.
Consumers are warned to stay FAR away from anyone representing to collect a debt for any of these illegal operations. They will NEVER file any lawsuits; there are NO court orders, judgments, wage garnishments, or any other legal proceedings going on, except the ones in their drug induced heads. These sick people should be avoided. They are also desperate to make money, while they still have their freedom.

I just received a call on my cell stating that they need to come and serve me papers at my home. The number came up private, but when I asked what is the number to the company who is trying to serve me papers, she gave me this 1-855-693-7745 number. I googled it and came to this site where everyone is stating this is a scam.
I received the same voicemail "ridiculous" I will not call no mess like this back! I do not owe money to anyone! SCAM BIG TIME!!!!!
I rec'd a call from a RESTRICTED number leaving this number to call back. I have before and they say I owe a debt to a Payday Loan. Then he rattled off about 5 different companies for me to choose from who I owed. Really? I have never used any of them. Yes they either are hacking or buying names. They also usually have the last 4 of your SSN. This obviously is a scam. They also said they were from Morrison Cty MN. I havent lived there for over 25 yrs.
I got the same message. I called it back and a gentleman said he was an Attorney for Segal, Benette & Associates. I asked him for his attorney number. He would not answer and said I no longer had any time to debate that I would be served papers and he could not help. They said they would be at my work and a supervisor would need to sign off. Are you serious? They say their from the county? What county? It is bogus and I too paid the debt off they are talking about. I believe our information is being sold and bogus people pretending to be collectors are calling. These people need to be turned in for fraud!!!!!
Just listened to the message from 855-693-7745, Denise Brown, from County Office, legal paper work ready for me to sign I need to have supervisor sign also, reference # also. She's gonna see me tomorrow.
These people did the same thing to me. They even called my work and threaten that they would get a warrant for my arrest. They are using some illegal ways of getting a stupid debt. I talked on the phone to a woman for over an hour. I told her before I would give her any of my info that she would have to mail me something in the mail on their letter head. She instead insisted that it had to be e-mailed to me. So I gave her my email and she sent me some generic letter with no letter head. So I told her if she wanted me to make any payment to her she would have to send me something in the mail. So I as of yet have not received a damn thing from these people. I spoke to them on June 7th. Since I didn't make any payment to them since I have still not received anything in the mail from them. They are calling and starting to threaten me again. I also looked their company name up and found nothing valid on the internet. And the best of it all is the company they are supposedly getting the debt for is no where to be found. And they lady claimed she had no address or phone number for the company. Unless they send me a letter in the mail I will not send them one dime. They have no right threaten and talk to people at my job in rude matter or at all. This company needs to be stopped. They don't seem like a true company it seems like a scam. So please do not give them any of your bank account info or credit card #'s. Until they send you something in the mail to prove who they are. Email doesn't count either. What was the best part of the hour long conversation with this company. Is the woman agreed with me not to pay since she couldn't find anything on the company the debt was from. So please be very careful.
Here's roughly what's recorded on my voicemail (voice 2 txt, not the best translation, but it's an idea)

I just got a second call for the same thing from the law office of Segal Bennett...not in our local phone book. They gave this calling number and also a case number to refer to.
Something about a loan not paid and a fee. They want to take it out of my checking account.
Mentioned the local court in the county, so why isn't it a local phone number???
It was a woman caller. I asked for written information on the problem. She said she would fax it to me. Let's see what I get.
Wow, they did the same thing to me too, but I ahve no idea who it is or what they want. they just called my house and my sister answered the phone and they told her they were coming to my house to serve me papers, I guess they thought she was me, but they also told her that they would also go to my job looking for me, but it's a bunch of b***s***, they can't come to your work. If it is a police officer or a cop or federal government or someone in that department, then they can, but just some guy from a firm with papers just can't show up at your job with some papers about some b***s***...
This number has called me at least 2x threatening to "come and serve me" with some crap papers about receiving stolen funds! IT'S A BUNCH OF BULL AND I'M OVER THEM CALLING MY CELL PHONE!!!! Diane Weiss called and left a case number which is as good as the paper it's written on, which isn't much! GET A LIFE SCUMBAGS I OWE YOU NOTHING!!!!
Said I was linked to a bill from a relative I hadn't seen in 10 years. Called back asked for the person who called me and they hadn't heard of the person.
don't this number or any other number calling me
They called my parents house and left a threatening message about being served papers. But now I can't get threw to call them back to see what it is about...
Diane Weiss called from this stating they were from the Harris County Sheriffs department. Bill collector i think, scam for sure as i was not the person they were looking for.
They called me and not sure where it's from or who they our
