Prank Call
Yet another call from an extortionist calling about a fake debt... called me an f***ing liar, recited a fake case ID number and incorrect debit card information, said I had a balance of about $300. Hung up on me when I offered him my lawyers name and number. No answer when I tried to call back :) Peter Davis was supposedly his name, with very thick foreign accent, "got his supervisor" but was the same guy. Usually when I try to call these types of numbers back after a few weeks, they have been disconnected.

I received 18 calls from this number in a two hour span.  Twice he left messages telling me I am done.  His exact words were"you are gone, understnad, you are gone".  I called my lawyer about this because they said I had warrants for my arrest over a check cashing place I put on my BK in 2005 but they would not give him any information either.  He said they were scam artist who try to threaten people into paying them money.  He calls from one number and tells me to call another one.  The police siad there is nothing they can do.

I received several calls at work about a payday loan in 2005.  I was told to have my lawyer call within 60 minutes or I would be arrested the following day by 12 noon at work or some other public place.  I requested their name and address but all I got was Officer Simons at 954-678-9724.  This call came from 786-866-2982.  They then told me about an affidavit with criminal charges including theft by deception by National City Bank.  At first, he was an officer and then he was the legal representative of the company.

I continue to get threatening phone calls from these thugs.  They sometimes use other telephone numbers.  They always speak with a foreign accent so they must be from one of those foreign war groups trying to raise money for their cause.  Crazy! I just don't answer or speak to them. I do not owe anyone any money as they threaten in their message.  They call from a noisy call center and telephone line (sounds overseas).  None of the callers speak proper English, so my assumption is that they are from a foreign country tapping our country's telephone system. My advice to anyone that gets a call from these people is to ignore them.

Same song and dance.  Had spoken to my 91yr old mother, who referred to me.  Had the same thick accent, West Indies or the African British sound.  Very harassing and intimidating with noises about law suits, etc.  Had the wrong name and wrong address, but was fishing for more information. Is calling back, boy, do I want to have a surprise for him.  Beware!

I am receiving calls from a person pretending to work for the State Crime Division.  Can't understand most of what he was saying due to foreign speaking accent. Note this, he then told me about an affidavit with criminal charges with National City Bank and that I had 3 hours to cough up the money.  What money, he would not give me any amount, account number, nor would he let me speak to his supervisor, etc. I didn't know what this was regarding, especially when he referred to year 2005.  At first, he was pretending to be an officer and then he was the legal representative of the company.  Fast speaking guy trying to SCAM me.  I told his to mail whatever he had to me by mail. I assume he could do that, but he refused and said that he had done so already.  That's a lie and the truth is not in him.  I have never received any thing by mail.
I have been receiving these calls for 2 or more weeks now, and now I just ignore them (number shows up on my caller I.D.)at work.  I asked him to stop harrassing me on my job, but he continues to call my job number serveral times a day.  Now he is calling my house number and how did he get that number? I do not use that number because it belongs to my mother.  I have a cell phone that I use with a different number.  How can he get a way with these kinds of actions.  Harassing my mother! who is 76 years old and can't hear to good.  This got to stop immediately.  I would like to report him to the "BBB" with your help, but I have no idea what company he is with.  Please help.  I am not one for dodging my responsiblities and I pay my bills.  I know that this is a scam and I don't know why this person is harassing me.  These calls begin on July 7, 2008.  One other thing, I call directory assistant and they checked the data base and said that this telephone number was not listed.  The area code 786 is Miami, FL.

ABC News just did an investigative piece on this particular scam operation. Here's the report: http://abcnews.go.com/Business/story?id=5621205&page=1

This is a very active group of scammers, many of whom are calling from India (and probably other countries) and are in cahoots with a group of American pay day loan scammers. They attempt to extort money from consumers with a myriad of false and illegal threats, and alternately pose as debt collectors, federal and state law enforcement officers, lawyers and bankers. (And, typical of many financial scams, they demand payment via Western Union or MoneyGram or credit card.) They use any number of phony names such as US National Bank, Federal Investigation Bureau, US Legal Investigation Bureau, Hopkins Law Office, United Legal Processing, Morgan Associates, United Pay Services, National Processing, White Collar Crime Unit and many more. These criminals also use many phone numbers from many area codes; they're probably using caller-id spoofing software and/or VoIP to disguise their real location.
Do not send them any money, its all a big lie.  You will not be arrested.

I received a call from the 866-998-0981 # on Monday, missed two phone calls from 8AM-9AM. I was curious of who that was, because when I called back it was just a long beep. So when I got into work, I googled that number. Lucky I googled this number and found a lot of the same complaints. Thick indian accents, 3 filed affidavits, etc. So knowing this, I was prepared to chew them out. So I by the afternoon they called again, and I picked up. He he told me that I owe money on a Quick Payday loan, and asked if the SSN he read out was mine, I mistakenly said, yes, because he also asked if I still worked at this particular company. I told him no. Right from the get go, he asked me to have my lawyers fax number so he can fax these allegations to them. I told him that I actually do have a lawyer and that I know he's a scam and if he wants to talk further that it would have to be through my lawyer. I also told him that if I truly owe money, which I am certain I dont, then summons me to court. He said he will and that my lawyer needs to call back at this number for Morgan & Associates, 954-727-8481 by tonight. I told him nobody is calling him by tonight and I said I know that this is a scam and that all these 3 allegations is completely bogus. And he should not call anymore otherwise he can directly talk to my lawyer.

They called me on Monday, and I haven't heard back from them, it's Wednesday.

The only regret is that when he asked if this Social Security # he read off was mine, I said it was.. since I verified it, DOES ANYBODY KNOW how they can use against me??? since it's verified???

I have put a Fraud Alert on the credit reports
I have filed a complaint with the FL Attorney General
I have file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commissioners
I have filed a "police report" with my city. However, the officer said that he can't file a report since there was not a crime that has been committed yet, but he does have the incident number on record.
I will file other reports as well.

Thanks for reading!

I've seen a few reports on here claiming to have wired money. I'll have to go through my files and see if any of them listed the actual routing information.  Just going from memory, most of the routing destinations were in Florida; and one was routed to Texas. I'll let you know what I find.

ec - Do you know of anyone who has actually sent money to these creps?  My lawyer is having a hard time locating them.  sent papers to Morgan and Associates at the OKC address and got a reply it wasn't them.  They said they have exausted there data bases and have not been able to locate anything except they are somewhere in Winter Garden Florida.  Maybe if we can find a reveive code where someone sent them money we can find these crooks and shut them down....any thoughts,,,anybody anybody?

It has been quiet on the home front since I called the police on the jerks and called their bluff.  But I have a bad feeling they are regrouping and are going to be starting up again.  If they do, I will do exactly what I did before.

You may also want to contact the United States Secret Service.  The Secret Service is, in effect, the Treasury Department's police force.  It is responsible for protecting the country's financial infrastructure and payment systems from international and domestic threats. Call or write your local Secret Service field office to alert them to the details of this attempted extortion. The addresses and phone numbers of local Secret Service field offices are listed at http://www.secretservice.gov/field_offices.shtml or in your phone book.  Also, let the Secret Service know that you have a police report on file should they want a copy.

Good job sticking it to these crooks. People who refuse to be victims will eventually put these vermin out of business and behind bars.

I have been dealing with these jerks for about a month now.  Calling at least 15 times a day saying the same thing.  Charlie Jones was the first caller, then Larry and now jack Brown just keeps the calls coming.  They have threatened to have my kids taken away, told me that I would not live to see tomorrow and that my hubby would be arrested and uploaded if I didnt send $3000.00 by western Union.  So after 7 calls within 15 minutes last night I called our police department and filed a police report.  Luckily the officer was here taking the complaint when they called again.  Once again Jack Brown went through his whole speel about having 3 affidavits from a loan in 2005 and he was working with US Bank and the officer told them that enough was enough that the harrassment and threats need to end now! When Jack asked whom he was speaking to the officer stated his name, badge number and the department he is from.  Then after he hung up, we called back the number 786-866-2982 and the Ronnie answered Distribution.  When asked for a fax number he stated they couldnt recoive a fax.  So the officer asked for an address and the name and address Ronnie gave was Morgan Associates 1155 Northwest 85th street Wintergarden, Florida  33150.  So far this morning no calls, but the day is still young.

I have been getting a ton of calls from these losers.  It is a scam.  I filed a report with the FBI and immediately received a response that this is a "known scam" that is under investigation.  I encourage everyone to go to http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-786-866-2982.  There is a ton of information there about who to report these people to.

Sounds like things are proceeding nicely. And the lawyer is absolutely correct regarding the impersonation of law enforcement officers.  This particular gang of crooks has impersonated everyone from local police to FB agents. That's why it's important for everyone to report these criminals to both federal and state law enforcement. Once enough people starting filing complaints and demand action, as you have done, scams such as this will be shutdown. Unfortunately, it's a long, tedious process.

Thanks for keeping us informed, ginurse!

ec, I forgot to add that they didn't say where they were based, just who they were.  I didn't think to ask about that.  This group that I contacted have been very successful against Allied Interstate and I personally think this company is alot (if not) just like them.  The lawyer who called me back said that it was very likely that I'd end up with some money out of them because they are not going to want to take this into the court room.  I told them I wasn't necessarily in this for the money, I just wanted them to stop calling me and to know that there are people out there who know what their rights are and that they can't bully everyone.  They also said that they made a very big mistake when they called themselves an "OFFICER" to me because they can actually go to jail for calling themselves an member of the law.  I think we all need to band together and more people need to pursue legal action and it might actually shut alot more of these places down.  I'll keep you informed of what goes on.

ec-- they said that based on the numbers I gave them and the call they made to that office it was determined that they are in fact Morgan & Associates.  They emailed me papers and I filled them out and sent them back and they said they would start work on this right away.  I'm curious to see how this plays out but I'll be happy just to get the calls stopped.

Very interesting news, ginurse!  This is the first time that I've heard of an attorney researching these grifters and initiating legal proceedings against them. I'd be curious to know if your attorney has pinpointed where these crooks are based.  Though many of the calls come from India, my hunch is that it's all orchestrated by a gang of crooks in Florida.

Glad to hear that you're holding their feet to the fire!

After many many calls from these people, a few days ago I filed a complaint with the Texas AG, and the Florida AG...yesterday I contacted an attorney for consumer rights...he took all the numbers I had (the ones they call from and the number they leave) within about an hour he called me back and told me he had contacted them and they are operating under the name Morgan & Associates.  He said this is a viable company for them to prosecute and he is sending me some papers to fill out and give to him and they are going to file charges against them for me.  No money required by me as this is their job to protect consumers.  He said worst case outcome he gets them to leave me alone, best case outcome I end up with money.  He said this a clear violation of the law and these people have to be stopped.  I'm not expecting any money as I'm sure these idiots have ways around that, but maybe they will figure out that some people actually do know what their rights are...I'll be happy if they just leave me alone.
