I answered a job posting on Craigslist.com re: Admin Assistant.  Received an email reguarding an online interview through yahoo messenger.  I thought it was odd, but responded.  After a one hour on line interview I decided that I needed my husbands opinion.  He advised me to investigate the company which lead me here to this site.  I asked for a business lic# and was ignored.  I refused to give any personal info. I was dealing with a man named James Peterson. We have no intentions of signing for anything from Fedx and I have reported this info to the Attorney General Of CA.

I checked the money orders through Walmart where they supposedly purchased. They were indeed fake. So now I'm just getting more phone numbers out of the guy to report before telling him I know what's up. So far it seems to be some people in Dallas, Silvano Mendoza is the man whose address is on the money orders, and a Ms. Andrea Michaels in New York sent them to me. Just doing a basic lookup of the phone numbers on the White Pages gives a lot of information. I'm going to give the information to the Attorney General of my state. Does anyone know of any other agency that would be helpful in this matter?

Well they obviously haven't done anything about them yet as I just received a Job Offer from Nokia Corp for Data Entry and they wanted to set up a interview briefing through Yahoo Messenger also. What's funny is I have looking for work at home data entry so I never would have thought anything of this as I had done a check through Snopes.com and checked all the names and whatever there was listed in the email. I Googled all the names and I haven't come up with anything negative on anything.  But I would have beencompletely open eyed if they had said they were going to send money and have me turn around and use it and send it back to them.  Sounds like laundering to me.

I am going through a similar predicament. I found the job on craigslist.com and underwent an online interview through yahoo messenger. He said his name was James Walker though. This number was the one he gave me when i requested a contact number. He said the company name was ABTech Computers Inc. I didn't give my bank information because I thought it sounded too good to be true. Instead he sent two money orders through Fed Ex each in the amount of 870$. I deposited them and am waiting to see if my bank says they are real. I didn't find this site and similar story til today so I guess i will wait and see what my bank says. there were several people involved in this under several names. From California, to New York, to Texas. Beware anything that involves transferring funds somewhere.

I checked the money orders through Walmart where they supposedly purchased. They were indeed fake. So now I'm just getting more phone numbers out of the guy to report before telling him I know what's up. So far it seems to be some people in Dallas, Silvano Mendoza is the man whose address is on the money orders, and a Ms. Andrea Michaels in New York sent them to me. Just doing a basic lookup of the phone numbers on the White Pages gives a lot of information. I'm going to give the information to the Attorney General of my state. Does anyone know of any other agency that would be helpful in this matter?

Well they obviously haven't done anything about them yet as I just received a Job Offer from Nokia Corp for Data Entry and they wanted to set up a interview briefing through Yahoo Messenger also. What's funny is I have looking for work at home data entry so I never would have thought anything of this as I had done a check through Snopes.com and checked all the names and whatever there was listed in the email. I Googled all the names and I haven't come up with anything negative on anything.  But I would have beencompletely open eyed if they had said they were going to send money and have me turn around and use it and send it back to them.  Sounds like laundering to me.

I am going through a similar predicament. I found the job on craigslist.com and underwent an online interview through yahoo messenger. He said his name was James Walker though. This number was the one he gave me when i requested a contact number. He said the company name was ABTech Computers Inc. I didn't give my bank information because I thought it sounded too good to be true. Instead he sent two money orders through Fed Ex each in the amount of 870$. I deposited them and am waiting to see if my bank says they are real. I didn't find this site and similar story til today so I guess i will wait and see what my bank says. there were several people involved in this under several names. From California, to New York, to Texas. Beware anything that involves transferring funds somewhere.

The calls from this phone number and various others (502-261-1015, 502-261-1047, 502-261-1066, etc.) are apparently coming from G.L.A. Collection Company in Louisville KY.  These calls violate two parts of the TCPA:   1) It's illegal to make automated calls to cell phones without consent.  The penalty is $500 to $1500 per call, payable to the person whose phone line is being abused.   2) Automated voice messages must ALWAYS include the name AND phone number of the caller (regardless of whether being made to a cell phone or a land line, and regardless of whether you gave consent for them to call).  No civil damages are available, but this can be enforced by your state attorney general and the FCC.This is a small business and I want to be as fair to them as I can.  However, it is absolutely unacceptable for any company to annoy hundreds or thousands of people via these cell phone robocalls.  It might be different if they only made the calls to people who actually owe them money, but it is not OK to intentionally program a phone spamming machine to call the debtors' neighbors, relatives, or other random people.  And it's definitely not OK for them to illegally conceal their identity in the process.  (Their first automated call to me had no caller ID, no business name, AND no return phone number.  If not for the later calls I would not have figured out who was to blame.)I will be contacting this company in the next few days to try to get this matter addressed.  This should stop the nuisance calls for many people, not just me, if I can make them realize how much money they stand to lose in penalties and fines.  If I am unable to get them to resolve this without a lawsuit, a class action is a possible option to recover damages for anyone who got these illegal calls.Remember:  Preserve all evidence, it may be valuable later.  Post information about illegal calls here.  And always consult your attorney for specific legal advice about your situation.

She also told me if I didn't pay it, my account would be turned over to an attorney and then I would have to pay legal fees.  I have never given any debt collector my number and this is the first time I've ever had any debt collection company call me.  I also recieved a bill, but it doesn't say what the bill is for.  After reading other messages, I'm not paying anything to them.  Thanks for the information.

These robocalls to cell phones are completely illegal, yet (according to the post from "Emergent" in Sep. 2009) they have been continuing now for at least 2 1/2 years!  It is well past time that we put a stop to this nonsense.Each call is worth up to $1500 in damages under federal law.  If you are getting these calls on a cell phone, and you have not given your phone # out in connection with a legally valid debt that they are trying to collect, then please post a comment here about your experience.  If there is enough interest, we can contact a law firm that specializes in TCPA cases, and organize a class action that will effectively bankrupt this company and solve the problem for everyone.  Otherwise, we can go ahead with individual cases in small claims court.In the meantime, please make sure to document all illegal calls that you get -- date, time, caller ID, content of call.  Record the calls when possible.  Keep in mind that this company also apparently masks its caller ID at times, so "unavailable" calls may be from them.

This includes collection agencies, lawyers who collect debts on a regular basis, and companies that buy delinquent debts and then try to collect them.Here are some questions and answers about your rights under the Act.What types of debts are covered?The Act covers personal, family, and household debts, including money you owe on a personal credit card account, an auto loan, a medical bill, and your mortgage. The FDCPA doesn’t cover debts you incurred to run a business.Can a debt collector contact me any time or any place? No. A debt collector may not contact you at inconvenient times or places, such as before 8 in the morning or after 9 at night, unless you agree to it. And collectors may not contact you at work if they’re told (orally or in writing) that you’re not allowed to get calls there.How can I stop a debt collector from contacting me?If a collector contacts you about a debt, you may want to talk to them at least once to see if you can resolve the matter – even if you don’t think you owe the debt, can’t repay it immediately, or think that the collector is contacting you by mistake. If you decide after contacting the debt collector that you don’t want the collector to contact you again, tell the collector – in writing – to stop contacting you. Here’s how to do that:Make a copy of your letter. Send the original by certified mail, and pay for a “return receipt” so you’ll be able to document what the collector received. Once the collector receives your letter, they may not contact you again, with two exceptions: a collector can contact you to tell you there will be no further contact or to let you know that they or the creditor intend to take a specific action, like filing a lawsuit. Sending such a letter to a debt collector you owe money to does not get rid of the debt, but it should stop the contact. The creditor or the debt collector still can sue you to collect the debt. Can a debt collector contact anyone else about my debt?If an attorney is representing you about the debt, the debt collector must contact the attorney, rather than you. If you don’t have an attorney, a collector may contact other people – but only to find out your address, your home phone number, and where you work. Collectors usually are prohibited from contacting third parties more than once. Other than to obtain this location information about you, a debt collector generally is not permitted to discuss your debt with anyone other than you, your spouse, or your attorney.What does the debt collector have to tell me about the debt? Every collector must send you a written “validation notice” telling you how much money you owe within five days after they first contact you. This notice also must include the name of the creditor to whom you owe the money, and how to proceed if you don’t think you owe the money. Can a debt collector keep contacting me if I don’t think I owe any money? If you send the debt collector a letter stating that you don’t owe any or all of the money, or asking for verification of the debt, that collector must stop contacting you. You have to send that letter within 30 days after you receive the validation notice. But a collector can begin contacting you again if it sends you written verification of the debt, like a copy of a bill for the amount you owe.What practices are off limits for debt collectors?Harassment. Debt collectors may not harass, oppress, or abuse you or any third parties they contact. For example, they may not:     use threats of violence or harm;     publish a list of names of people who refuse to pay their debts (but they can give this information to the credit reporting companies);     use obscene or profane language; or     repeatedly use the phone to annoy someone. False statements. Debt collectors may not lie when they are trying to collect a debt. For example, they may not:     falsely claim that they are attorneys or government representatives;     falsely claim that you have committed a crime;     falsely represent that they operate or work for a credit reporting company;     misrepresent the amount you owe;     indicate that papers they send you are legal forms if they aren’t; or     indicate that papers they send to you aren’t legal forms if they are. Debt collectors also are prohibited from saying that:     you will be arrested if you don’t pay your debt;     they’ll seize, garnish, attach, or sell your property or wages unless they are permitted by law to take the action and intend to do so; or     legal action will be taken against you, if doing so would be illegal or if they don’t intend to take the action. Debt collectors may not:     give false credit information about you to anyone, including a credit reporting company;     send you anything that looks like an official document from a court or government agency if it isn’t; or     use a false company name. Unfair practices. Debt collectors may not engage in unfair practices when they try to collect a debt. For example, they may not:     try to collect any interest, fee, or other charge on top of the amount you owe unless the contract that created your debt – or your state law – allows the charge;     deposit a post-dated check early;     take or threaten to take your property unless it can be done legally; or     contact you by postcard. Can I control which debts my payments apply to? Yes. If a debt collector is trying to collect more than one debt from you, the collector must apply any payment you make to the debt you select. Equally important, a debt collector may not apply a payment to a debt you don’t think you owe.Can a debt collector garnish my bank account or my wages?If you don’t pay a debt, a creditor or its debt collector generally can sue you to collect. If they win, the court will enter a judgment against you. The judgment states the amount of money you owe, and allows the creditor or collector to get a garnishment order against you, directing a third party, like your bank, to turn over funds from your account to pay the debt. Wage garnishment happens when your employer withholds part of your compensation to pay your debts. Your wages usually can be garnished only as the result of a court order. Don’t ignore a lawsuit summons. If you do, you lose the opportunity to fight a wage garnishment.Can federal benefits be garnished?Many federal benefits are exempt from garnishment, including:     Social Security Benefits     Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Benefits     Veterans’ Benefits     Civil Service and Federal Retirement and Disability Benefits     Service Members’ Pay     Military Annuities and Survivors’ Benefits     Student Assistance     Railroad Retirement Benefits     Merchant Seamen Wages     Longshoremen’s and Harbor Workers’ Death and Disability Benefits     Foreign Service Retirement and Disability Benefits     Compensation for Injury, Death, or Detention of Employees of U.S. Contractors Outside the U.S.     Federal Emergency Management Agency Federal Disaster Assistance But federal benefits may be garnished under certain circumstances, including to pay delinquent taxes, alimony, child support, or student loans. Do I have any recourse if I think a debt collector has violated the law? You have the right to sue a collector in a state or federal court within one year from the date the law was violated. If you win, the judge can require the collector to pay you for any damages you can prove you suffered because of the illegal collection practices, like lost wages and medical bills. The judge can require the debt collector to pay you up to $1,000, even if you can’t prove that you suffered actual damages. You also can be reimbursed for your attorney’s fees and court costs. A group of people also may sue a debt collector as part of a class action lawsuit and recover money for damages up to $500,000, or one percent of the collector’s net worth, whichever amount is lower. Even if a debt collector violates the FDCPA in trying to collect a debt, the debt does not go away if you owe it.What should I do if a debt collector sues me?If a debt collector files a lawsuit against you to collect a debt, respond to the lawsuit, either personally or through your lawyer, by the date specified in the court papers to preserve your rights. Where do I report a debt collector for an alleged violation?Report any problems you have with a debt collector to your state Attorney General’s office (www.naag.org) and the Federal Trade Commission (www.ftc.gov). Many states have their own debt collection laws that are different from the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Your Attorney General’s office can help you determine your rights under your state’s law.For More InformationTo learn more about debt collection and other credit-related issues, visit www.ftc.gov/credit and MyMoney.gov, the U.S. government’s portal to financial education.The FTC works for the consumer to prevent fraudulent, deceptive, and unfair business practices in the marketplace and to provide information to help consumers spot, stop, and avoid them.

These people actually practice an illegal form of debt collection. First, you have to give them permission to be able to call your cell phone, which they never ask for (and call me on). Second, they aren't supposed to call you with an automated message system (which they do to me). Lastly, when calling, and if having permission, they are supposed to announce to you on what their company's name is [GLA Collections], which they don't. As far as I'm concerned, they're not following debt collection law that was passed by Congress, so they can soon to receive a case against them. They do work for medical facilities and hospitals to collect debt for them. However, their practices are illegal and if you receive a call from these folk, talk with your hospital and tell them you're not paying a debt from an untrustworthy and indirect source. You should be able to stop the calls and settle whatever it is you need to settle, one way or another.

They primarily collect for medical facilities, so it might be a co-pay or something like that that you still owe.   They do collections for many of the hospitals, clinics and Dr offices around here.  Hope that helps.

Like most of you, I could have gotten scammed. It's true what most of you say, deal locally but it's difficult when you are trying to find a vacation rental because you can't physically be there to check. Yesterday I was looking for a vacation condo for my family in Vancouver. I saw an attractive 2bed/2bath, $100.00 a night condo in downtown Vancouver. Correspondence via email between "owner" and I. Red flags for me: 1. There were several listings that had the same information, just different (very beautiful) pictures with different email addresses. 2. I asked if they used paypal and they said only Money Gram or Western Union. 3. He game me is banking and routing information and so I called the bank in Michigan. Correct name, but still fishy. I googled the Money gram zipcode, but it showed me a different state (Georgia) when it was supposed to be a Michigan Address. 4. The person wouldn't answer questions like, references, name of building or unit to contact, etc. I googled the name and email address. Sure enough, police reports are filed against this person from other people. The SAME stock photos in New York, Vancouver, Miami, Hawaii!!!!!! Here are some ads at different location IN THE COUNTRY!!!! Same decor in each apartment?? WOW!!!! *Sarcasm* http://newyork.craigslist.org/mnh/vac/1834760617.html http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/van/vac/1833269724.html http://miami.craigslist.org/mdc/vac/1831359971.html http://honolulu.craigslist.org/oah/vac/1834279530.html Same room in at least 4 different states?

I answered a job posting on Craigslist.com re: Admin Assistant.  Received an email reguarding an online interview through yahoo messenger.  I thought it was odd, but responded.  After a one hour on line interview I decided that I needed my husbands opinion.  He advised me to investigate the company which lead me here to this site.  I asked for a business lic# and was ignored.  I refused to give any personal info. I was dealing with a man named James Peterson. We have no intentions of signing for anything from Fedx and I have reported this info to the Attorney General Of CA.

I checked the money orders through Walmart where they supposedly purchased. They were indeed fake. So now I'm just getting more phone numbers out of the guy to report before telling him I know what's up. So far it seems to be some people in Dallas, Silvano Mendoza is the man whose address is on the money orders, and a Ms. Andrea Michaels in New York sent them to me. Just doing a basic lookup of the phone numbers on the White Pages gives a lot of information. I'm going to give the information to the Attorney General of my state. Does anyone know of any other agency that would be helpful in this matter?

Well they obviously haven't done anything about them yet as I just received a Job Offer from Nokia Corp for Data Entry and they wanted to set up a interview briefing through Yahoo Messenger also. What's funny is I have looking for work at home data entry so I never would have thought anything of this as I had done a check through Snopes.com and checked all the names and whatever there was listed in the email. I Googled all the names and I haven't come up with anything negative on anything.  But I would have beencompletely open eyed if they had said they were going to send money and have me turn around and use it and send it back to them.  Sounds like laundering to me.

hopefully you don't get in trouble. the person who cashes/deposits fake money orders is technically held responsible. good luck to you. my boyfriend was involved in the same thing. he recieved 3 money orders for 970 to cash and send to someone else. luckily he realized it was not real. today i recieved an email asking for a yahoo messenger interview from "Mr James Peterson" from AB Tech Computers Inc also. Crazy world out there.

I am going through a similar predicament. I found the job on craigslist.com and underwent an online interview through yahoo messenger. He said his name was James Walker though. This number was the one he gave me when i requested a contact number. He said the company name was ABTech Computers Inc. I didn't give my bank information because I thought it sounded too good to be true. Instead he sent two money orders through Fed Ex each in the amount of 870$. I deposited them and am waiting to see if my bank says they are real. I didn't find this site and similar story til today so I guess i will wait and see what my bank says. there were several people involved in this under several names. From California, to New York, to Texas. Beware anything that involves transferring funds somewhere.

I will not give out my information.  "Mr.James Bush" is the man who called me offering me a job for online data entry.  This man did a interview over yahoo instant messaging by the name JamesBush975.  He asked for my account infomation telling me I need to purchase equipment with the money he transfers over.  James Bush transfered over 998.00 to my account and told me to go to Western Union and do a wire transfer to another account.  I thought this was innaccurate and reported to my bank.  It is FRAUD!  they shut down my account immediately!False information coming from the Nokia House Corporation-Finland/Florida.  Do Not Believe!

Got a call from 818-000-3828 when I answered I got an automated message saying something about lowering my credit rates.  Like another comment posted before me, I have NO credit cards.  I pressed the 9 option to speak to someone and I immediately told them to stop calling me and I have no credit cards and they hung up on me.  About 5 mins later I got another call from 812-961-8433 from a man who couldn't speak English and kept saying he was calling from Egypt and when I asked who he was calling for he kept mumbling and saying "mmhmm".  I told him to never call my number again.  After doing a reverse look up it turns out his "Egypt" was actually somewhere in Ohio.  I wish these retards would get a real job and stop wasting my time.

We continue to get calls from these people... we get them almost daily.  The gentlement don't speak english I'm guessing... as a few times I have heard them speak.  When I ask them who they are calling for they disconnect the line or the line get quite and they say nothing until I hang up.  818-000-3828 is the number they called from today.  I just wonder if they aren't trying to get you to say the word "yes" for some unknown reason. As when they come on the line they ask you if you would be interested in a lower interest rate... well who wouldn't if they had a card... once you start asking questions they know you aren't going to play along and they disappear.  I have worked for the phone company for years and it's probably best just not to answer the phone at all on these types of calls... you would be amazed at the things people do with just a simple recorded word or how much damage they can cause you.
