This is a criminal extortion scam operating out of India. They are making the calls utilizing VOIP and the names of legitimate firms to make it appear the calls are originating from within the US. There is NO "company" or "debt" and you will NOT be arrested. They are harvesting and/or buying consumers' personal identifying information from unscrupulous websites like the one you may have filled out an application with, and you need to do whatever you can to protect yourself. This includes: Notifying the FTC: https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/, placing fraud alerts with all three credit bureaus, notifying your bank and employer and letting these criminals know you are aware they are attempting to extort money for a non-existent debt and have alerted the authorities.
ABC News released an investigative report on this scam a year ago:
Ok I wasn't sure because she kept telling me to call a 800 number to I been crying all weekend and stuff because she they threatened to put me in jail and stuff and when we called the 800 number they said they were ssmllc that was it And said I owe 770 I'm like for what and said I defrauded and some other crap not once have I did that
correction to last line: and even the thought of putting someone in jail, from a scam Call center in India, is a joke.
Its a scam! Read the above post by me. They are Asian Indian scammers. This scam has been going on for years now.
So she saying she has files and needs to verify my information so it's a scam?
No they are not South American. These are callers/scammers in India who run this scam.
Do not even talk with them....hang up or don't answer. Their big lying mouth is their only weapon to steal money with, and the thought of putting anyone is a joke.

Call is very threatening. Says they have me fired and put in jail. Is south american sounding person.
