Robert Johnson , special investigator, calling from phone number 567-357-4438 called and left a message on our answering machine. He said it was regarding case #-------------. They stated that our payment had been declined. They were not authorized to deduct this second payment of which I had been deceived into paying the first time. The first time they called they said they were Capital Legal Alliance with a phone number of 803-702-4034. A woman named Melanie Armstrong, I.D.# 28-07-367 and phone number 803-702-4034 extension 1002 said there was a subpoena to appear in court. We asked for documentation of said debt (purchase date, item purchased, etc.) She said paperwork was already sent and would not accept the fact that I never received anything and was very rude when I asked it to be sent in the first place. Both parties had the same case # and were calling about the same thing. Caller id shows Allendale, SC for phone number 803-702-4034 and West Salem, OH for phone # 567-357-4438. Fraudulent Evildoers!!!!~!~!~!~
Civil Action crap, restraining order. Have reported to NC local FBI and Fed Communications Comm. When I first searched for the number on the internet in approx. Feb 2013 (first wave of calls), I found that this number belonged to a cell phone issued near Greenville, NC. Today, after search using a different engine, I found different info. I will continue to try to report this to someone who will actually look in to this and possibly prosecute these people. I am sick for the people who panicked, and followed whatever instructions they were given on how to make this "go away'. In my case, the first wave of calls began just after my son (named in the "Action") had been deployed overseas. How convenient. Unable to contact him. Deployment info is printed in local newspapers surrounding military bases. Not cool. I have been in contact with the Family Readiness Officer on base. I was hoping that he would describe this particular scam in the unit newsletter. He did not seem overly concerned, and blew it off with, "I will not print this particular scam, as there are many out there." No kidding, bro. Maybe we could better prepare each other with information ahead of time, you know, a "heads-up." Seems the whole country would rather be "reactive" than "proactive. Well, thanks for reading, and keep on your toes, people
Mr. Miller new more info than he should have. Talked me into thinking my wifes EX may have opened a card in her name and stopped paying when they split. Talked me into setteling for $667.00 and promised to mail ALL ACCOUNT INFO FROM DATES OPENED< PAYMENTS MADE< AND THE SIGNATURE OF MY WIFE THAT OPENED THE ACCOUNT! Been almost 2 months andMr. Miller cant provide my info nor my refund! Told me an address of where they are located in South Carolina and further investigation proves they do not stay there...I will help put an end to this scam he picked the wrong one....I will post better info when I reach the office tomorrow and can review the "Settlement Statement" they sent me which came from a seperate company that "runs their cards and handles legal matters" with everyones help we can put these b*****ds where they need to be...
THE CALL EXPLAIN I'AM INVOLVE IN A CIVIL CASE I DON'T ANYTHING ABOUT.PLEASE ADDRESS THIS ISSUE
My 80 year old mother has gotten 2 calls from this # saying they were the Civil Investigation Unit, and there was going to be a restraining order against her if she didn't contact a lawyer, this really upset her, there must be some local agency we can call to report these calls, I live in California.
Yeah, the wife called this because they asked for me and wouldnt give her info but said they were serving papers now because of her and hung up. Stupid people.
I got a call two days ago, when I called back they gave a different name instead of mine, so I tried calling again but I can`t get through. Sounds fishy to me
Got a call from this company saying I was named as a respondent in a complaint. I called them back, they were looking for someone else who had the same last name. Said if I was covering for this person I would be in trouble, started yelling and threatening me. Told him to stop calling me and hung up. He called back six times in a row. Now is calling me again, going on three days now.
I gave Miller money. I had loans in the past in 2008 and I didnt know if it was legit or not, and he is there threatening me on the phone, had all my information, and said pay up or I am releasing this now and they will be serving you this afternoon and you will be forced to appear in court on Monday (this was last Friday). I paid cause I can't afford to lose my job or be served with papers! So after I looked up old loans and it didnt add up..so I started googling an voila - I am an idiot. Truthfully, I am a very well educated person, and if I fell for this so will others. I hope them find them and hang them.
I tried calling the office to tell them I will give them the chance to refund before I dispute. Now I will have to dispute and to do so will have to turn off my debit card, what a hassle. Not fair. Oh, and he had the gull to say "don't threaten me, I am trying to help you out, but if you threaten me I won't..and then hung up. Told me to call back in an hour and he will have a resolution for me - yeah sure.
Same message of restraining order and they know my address and ss number. They even call my brother and leave a message for me to contact them. No one answers Scam I reported this number
got one as well. Total BS, same procedure as listed in previous posts. Called him back, told him before I do anything I want to know the acct number of the Visa card I am deliquent on, date of last purchase, etc etc. The guy said it appears I am still running away from this debt and hung up. LOL.
Put this number on call block!
this tn is calling me constant non stop It ask for a different person & doesn't hang up the phone .it ties up my line .I want it stopped I tried calling back the number but it has a recording telling me it can't go through as at this time .I am sick of these calls and want them to stop.
They have been calling me on a daily message. Threatening court action and restraining order.
Have gotten several messages from this number (a woman's voice) requesting that I contact them regarding a civil investigations unit in regards to a complaint being filed against me. Where I've been named a respondant in a court action filed against me and I must appear and that an order to show cause with a restraining order has been filed against me, says to please forward this information to my attorney and that we have 24-48 hours to respond. Then it goes on to give a number, claim number, and avidavat #, and it ends with thank you and good luck. I'm not even sure what this is about, but after typing in the number and doing a google search I saw all these posts. How do I even get the information about this company to report them other than the number they left? I'm not about to return a call and be cursed at, but if this is a scam, I feel it is important to report it so they can be shut down.
SCAM GUYS......got a recorded msg today too.....have been getting them from different people and numbers......"she said there is a federal investigation against me".....and the funny part is....."i am a federal employee....lol".....just ignore, delete, move on.......we are trying to work hard and survive here and these people want free money.....pathetic.....bad karma.....no wonders they have nothing better to do.
Got the same message on my voice mail on July 3, 2013. Called tonight to find out what this is about (same 313 number that others have mentioned). Got the same message that they were unable to respond at this time and to try again. Very strange. Mickj 7/5/13
yes, I tried to call back..they put me on hold and hung up the phone...what the hell!!
I got a call from this number. I called it back. They asked about a person I knew 18 years ago and said I was in a law suit. Background noise was not what you would hear on a business call. It said I was involved in a fraud lawsuit. Why would they be spending time making these calls? What are they getting out of it?
Received a call from them today same 313#. I was initially scared becasue I thought someone had stolen my identitiy. Once I calmed down and started piecing things together. I realized it was a scam. I called the police to make sure there were no warrants out for my arrest and contacted my bank. My only question is how did they get my social security and current address??? I never gave it to the guy he instead confirmed it with me. Also how do we get this company or person arrested???
I received a msg on my e-mail saying that a lawsuit I was being sued for fraud and gave me a file # I tried to call back and cannot complete at this time try my call again later. I am in California and they are in Michigan
As one said it would be a legal suit against me and had 24-48 hours in which to respond. I call it and cannot get thru now I know it wasn't 5pm eastern time when I called. I was suspicious and checked whitepages.com showed no listing for them then I googled the name of the business and I find all these statements that this is a scam. How would they get my e-mail address.
I got a call today as well, scared me to death.. I kept thinking who, what when and where since I've never been contacted via mail I just let it be.. to read all of your comments helps me calm down cause I am not in the mood to receive such threats.. I tried to call back each option doesn't work so to me obviously it is not a good thing... Shame on such things happening to good people..
Just got a call from this number and the same thing about filing a restraining order! What a scam! BEWARE EVERYONE they are trying to get your personal information! Geez it never stops!
Yes I got the same call from a relative somewhere that I do not reside. They look on line at a database and find relatives and call their numbers to harass them or scare them into contacting you. This is against the law, they are not to reveal any information when it comes to court or criminal charges unless they are speaking to you.
I received two calls from the number 313-334-3113 and they left messages on my phone and also called my son about me and he lives in another state. This is what the message said: This is the Civil Investigations Unit, you have been named as a respondent, claim filed against you . . . . named in a court action and you must appear; forward information to your attorney and that a restraining order has been issued against you. They gave an affidavit number and the phone number.
I filed a claim to the FTC and also sent a complaint my state's attorney general. Very unnerving.
Same message as of you left on my voice mail. Scared me. I called them back 4x's no answer
what exactly is a credit freeze? This Miller guy is real abusive and has called all 3 of my kids whom are adults saying he is going to have there mother arrested and that if they don't want to see that they batter pay.
This is not his first attempt.
got the same call today saying I had 24-48 hours to respond. I needed to call my lawyer and that this had to do with restrained bank account or seized assets. when I called the number back they said my call could not go thru at this time.
I know for sure this is a scam. The account he mentioned for me had the wrong amount plus it was written off for bankruptcy. Plus he is working off old address. He must be hacking into the credit bureaus.
Ok, got the same call from this number. Call the number back and PRESS 3, you will reach someone it litigation.....I keep calling them back and just start sqeaking a loud dog toy in the phone and they hang up on me.....I don't know why ;-( . Please call them back, block your number, don't say a word, make some loud annoying noise and they will hang up.!
Got this same call yesterday and today. I told them to never call me again. They said they were going to involve my employer and take me to jail. Bunch of BS..... Something needs to be done with these people...
