Got a call today stating that I had three allegations against me for check fraud, theft with money, and identity theft; but supposdely all this came about from boring $250 from an online payday loan website. One guy name was David,Bryan, Ryan. Also the area code comes out of New York, but they say its a Federal Investigation Company in Florida which is a lie! Please watch out for these guys!

I received a phone call today from this number; a heavily accented man (not Pakistani or India) who stated he was calling from a law firm, he had my last four SSN, and said I should call as soon as I received his message.This morning's call is very similar to a call I received from a Dominic Jones (heavy Pakistani or India accent) on 18 June, telephone number 760-733-3250 (California, San Diego County) (I wrote about this on another website tracking numbers like this). He was sort of friendly until I called back and pressed for name of his company, address, and main switchboard number - he became unfriendly and hung up on me.To me this is more than just a scam - someone in the network of payday lenders who advertise on-line is "leaking" some of our information to scammers.Anyway, tomorrow I'll deal with this so-called law firm. The area code of course originates from Buffalo, NY.I don't believe this sort of scam will never stop until complaints are filed with the Better Business Bureau, the FTC, and appropriate State Attorney Generals offices. And, the local telephone companies that operate in the area codes of origin.Stan

I too got this one too. He claims he is with Financial Crime Center of America. He tried to say a relative of mine used my name and # as a reference and has done something illegal but refused to tell me what. He said it was mine and my relatives problem. The phone disconnected and he called me right back. He still refused to answer my questions so I told him this was his problem and not to call me back. His so called name is Robbie Hoffman. Quite and american name for someone with such a strong foreign accent. lol.  He even gave me the # to have my relative call him back at 716-442-2824. A number based in N.Y. Next time he calls, I'm gonna tell him his name and # was used as an illegal reference by his own mother. lol

I too received a phone call from 716-442-2824 and it shows up "unknown caller."  He states his name is Jos Brown and he is with the Financial Crime Center of American in Tampa, Florida.  He is so full of "bull" that its funny.  This is obviously a scam as everytime he calls its the same Indian sounding voice and his name is way to american to be "real."  Simple fact is that they know they will never be caught because they use "virtual" phone numbers to have you call that can be used from around the world.Surely our FBI and FED TRADE COMMISSION will get sick of people reporting these things and do something about it.Geeez!

Consumer Alert: Attorney General warns Kansans of debt collection scamJanuary 29, 2010 -- Attorney General Steve Six is cautioning Kansas consumers about telephone calls from apparent fake debt collectors who are impersonating law enforcement officers in an effort to extort money from consumers.   Consumers are warned to not submit payments to these fraudulent debt collectors.When calling, the scammers most often state they are attempting to collect a debt related to an internet payday loan obtained by the consumer, but which the consumer never repaid.  Consumers state they have never obtained such a loan or paid off the loan years ago.  The scam artists have most recently identified themselves as ACS, National Affidavit Processing Department and United Financial Crime Division, but may use additional phony names.  It appears the phone numbers used by the scammers are “spoofed” numbers, so that the number appearing on a consumer’s caller ID is not the actual number of where the call originated. It appears the calls in question may be originating from outside the United States.When questioned, the individual calling refuses to disclose the full name or address of the collection agency they claim to represent.  These scammers have been able to provide consumers with identifying information, such as the consumer’s social security number, home address, e-mail address, names of family members and the consumer’s computer IP address.  Since the callers are able to provide valid personal information, consumers may become confused and believe they are being contacted in regard to a legitimate debt.If the initial debt collection scam is unsuccessful, consumers have been re-contacted months later with the scammers posing as law enforcement officers or officers of the court.  Typically, the consumer is threatened with arrest for fraud or some other fictitious crime unless the consumer agrees to immediately wire money via Western Union.  The fictitious officers strive to frighten and confuse consumers into compliance by using legal sounding terms such as “We’re filing an affidavit against you” or by stating a lawsuit has been or is in the process of being filed against the consumer.A hallmark of each scam has been calling consumers repeatedly at their place of employment.  This scam hit home when an employee of the Kansas Attorney General’s Office was repeatedly called both on her cell phone and at work.  Despite the employee’s repeated verbal disputes, the caller refused to provide any identifying information to allow her to send a written dispute. The scammer also continued to call her numerous times a day regarding a payday loan she denied obtaining. Two months later, she was again contacted by telephone by an individual identifying himself as an “officer”. “I denied owing the debt and refused to pay without being provided validation of the debt. I was then told, ‘If that’s the case, I will have local law enforcement come to your place of business and drag you out kicking and screaming’,” stated the employee.“It is important for consumers to know their rights under the law,” Attorney General Six said. “If a consumer is receiving calls from a debt collection company and believe it is a scam, I encourage them to contact our office immediately.”Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), collectors are required to send consumers a written notice within five days of the initial contact.  The notification should contain  information such as the amount of the debt, the name of the creditor to whom the debt is owed and a statement informing the consumer they have thirty days to contact the debtor in writing to dispute the debt or request validation of the debt. In addition, legitimate debt collectors are prohibited by the FDCPA from making false or misleading representations, such as the consumer has committed a crime, implying nonpayment will result in the consumer’s arrest, or using the threat of violence.More information is available on the Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/credit/cre27.pdf.

This number called me on my cell phone the other day and said that I had a payday loan that I got online that I had not paid and I would be arrested for misappropriation of funds because they had proof that I received the money and that I had not paid it back. I was "transferred" to a supervisor who tried to tell me I was lying to him when I told him I did not have such. He was able to give me my email address, last four of ssn, home address, etc. which was scary! After getting irate, he transferred me to another "supervisor"that said no one would arrest me and that he would fax me proof of the debt. I gave my fax number and the call disconnected...or he hung it up. All three people had a strong Indian accent and the phone had a bad connection.

The Better Business Bureau issued an alert today saying consumers across the country are getting phone calls from bogus debt collectors claiming default on a payday loan. Of course, the consumer needs to pay a large fee to avoid arrest -- as much as $1,000.The caller poses as a lawyer, and may threaten extradition to face trial if the consumer doesn't pay up immediately.What makes these calls alarming -- and perhaps convincing -- is that the perpetrators reference the consumer's personal information, such as the person's Social Security number, driver's license number, previous bank account numbers, home address -- even personal references."The amount of information they have is really troubling," says BBB spokeswoman Alison Southwick. She adds that the amount of data points to a possible security breach.Spread the word to your friends and family: Don't give out personal or financial information to an unknown caller. Scammers can spoof Caller ID to display different numbers, so trust your instincts over technology.The BBB offers these tips:•    Ask the debt collector to provide official documentation which substantiates the debt. •    Do not provide or confirm any bank account, credit card or other personal information over the phone until you have confirmed the legitimacy of the call. •    File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission online if the caller is abusive, uses threats or otherwise violates federal telemarketing laws or the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. •    File a complaint with the Better Business Bureau online if you believe a debt collector is trying to scam you.

This is a payday loan collection scam.  This man called my husband and threatened to have him arrested tomorrow if he did not pay $999 today.  He knew personal information such as social security and bank account information.  When I called the number back he refused to tell me what company he worked for, so I called from another number again.  He finally lied and told me he was at a hospital, so I knew it was a scam.  Needless to say he was not very happy when I outed him.

I just received a call from these people called CRA.  I answered the phone and the girl that came onto the line asked me to hold because a manager wanted to speak to me regarding some "preliminary documents".  When this "manager" came on the line he told me that I owed a credit card company some money and that if I didn't pay, that they would then file papers to see me in court and also with the IRS.  He then went on (in a harassing manner) telling me that I should not have opened credit if I could not pay it off.  I told him that I make minimum wage and that I am currently in school.  He told me "well, I guess you need to drop out of school and get another job then"!  I then asked him why he had an attitude because I didn't personally owe him money.  His response was, it might as well be my money since it's in my office!  ARGHHHHHHH!!!!  I have NEVER been so harassed and spoken to like this from a collections company...so, I will be contacting the BBB and filing a complaint!  Horrible people!!!!!!!!

I've noticed that of late many collectors have been trying to find ways around the recent legislation that forbids spoofing your caller ID, and it looks as though CRA fall into that group. The caller ID simply said ANDERSON (the phone company's official ID when they can only obtain the caller's city would have been ANDERSON CALLER, so there's evidently still some spoofing going on). No message was left (possibly because our VM is currently full or close to it).

OCP’s investigation stemmed from a series of reports from consumers that Dorsey Thornton & Associates harassed and deceived consumers by:    Threatening consumers with arrest or imprisonment if they did not pay the debt;    Refusing to send consumers written proof of the debt owed;    Identifying themselves as “Investigators” rather than disclosing that they were debt collectors attempting to collect a debt;    Contacting third parties and divulging information about the debtor’s account;    Calling consumers before 8:00am or after 9:00pm    Continuing to contact consumers even after they told the company to stop calling them;Under the Assurance, Dorsey Thornton & Associates has agreed to forego collection of 31,433 accounts, representing a total of $15,491,899.36 in consumer debt. The Assurance also requires the company to pay a civil penalty and to reimburse OCP for investigative and legal expenses.“Debt collectors who engage in this kind of harassment, deception and other illegal behavior in the state of Georgia must and will pay a steep price,” said John Sours, Administrator of the Governor’s Office of Consumer Protection.Press Contact InfoShawn Conroy404-656-3790

Just dorsey thornton trying to scare people reading this thread AGAIN.Question 1.  What state is this supposed check fraud court in?  Can you show us a picture of the building with a sign clearly demarcating "Check Fraud Court" or some such thing?  If you're doing research and presenting it in academic settings like colleges. . .or even at a high school, it behooves you to get building titles right.Question 2. Most states that allow payday lending do not allow business to pursue a defaulted payday loan with the usual "bad check" laws?  What sort of checks were resulting in these imprisonments?Question 3.  ckfraud.gov doesn't exist.  What say you?Question 4. Why does it matter that the company was in business since 1992?  You segue from school research to having had a payday loan yourself. . . care to comment?Question 5.  How much did your collection agency pay you to write your post?

I am doing a school project in my finance class about debt. Pay day loans is part of my search and I just posted this statement on another site and now I'm commenting on this one...First of all through my research when you google loanpayday.com they do exist. The company has been in business since 1992. By the paperwork of the payday loan that I had previously it stated that if I do not pay back the loan I will be held responsible for court fee, legal fee and collection fees due to the company that trusted me to loan me the money. That is the factor to the matter in this situation. YOU OWE PEOPLE MONEY!!!!!! PERIOD!!!! As for FDCPA they do not have to accommodate you on these laws because they are not collecting the money like a loan they are going based on your state laws as if you would search www.ckfraud.gov and it shows that YOU BROKE THE LAW WHEN THAT CHECK WAS KNOWINGLY RETURNED FROM THE BANK UNPAID. My mother is a paralegal and she really schooled me on this situation. After she had to pay the payday loan back for me she asked a judge friend of the family to allow me to sit in check fraud court hearings. Most people was able to get off on a fine and others went to jail because it was a repeat act. I'm currently doing a report in my financial class and this topic is part of my search. After reading your blogs I had to educate the stupid. You guys are stupid to think that you would allow someone to borrow money from you and the person you gave the money to did not give it back. Better yet howabout if you sold a car to someone and they gave you either a cashiers check or a check for the car. You go to the bank and they came back as a stop payment. How would you feel? People like you are partial of the reasons this economy is in bad shape. People do not pay there debts. Hide under Bankruptcy and think all is good.

This is all scammer/debt collector propaganda. No one goes to jail for civil torts. Failing to show up for a small claims civil hearing is not contempt. At best, failing to show up and defend one's self guarantees default judgments.Nor, do scammers/debt collectors have any decision making capabilities as to whether or not someone goes to jail.This spam post is filled with so many legal inaccuracies that it is just best to ignore it.

I found this tonight on aol's main page please read and let me know if you still the same way.America's new debtor prison: Jail time being given to those who oweMartha C. WhiteJul 15th 2010 at 8:00AM More Text SizeAAAFiled under: Borrowing, Credit, Debt, Bankruptcy, 101 credit&debt, In the NewsDebtors prisons were federally abolished in the United States in the 1800's, yet in certain states, they seem to be making a comeback. Out of Minnesota come disturbing reports of Americans being thrown in jail due to outstanding bills -- sometimes for as little as $85. The Star-Tribune of Minneapolis profiles a number of people who say their debts got them jailed, including Joy Uhlmeyer a 57-year-old patient care advocate who was pulled over on her way home from visiting her elderly mother and put in jail for a night for missing a court hearing about unpaid debt. The Star-Tribune reviewed the state's court documents and found that arrests like Uhlmeyer's are up 60% in Minnesota over the past four years. And Minnesota isn't the only state where this is happening. It's a turn of events Ed Mierzwinski, consumer program director at advocacy group U.S. Public Interest Research Groups (or PIRG), calls a "very bad situation for consumers." Mierzwinski attributes the practice to "bottom-feeder debt collectors [who] are very aggressive."People who are imprisoned for their debts are technically locked up for contempt of court after failing to appear for a hearing pertaining to their debt. It's a legal loophole that debt-collection companies are increasingly using. Here's how it works: First, the collections company files a lawsuit against the debtor, which requires them to appear in court. If the debtor doesn't show up, the creditor wins a default judgment against them. This allows them to ask the court to schedule another hearing at which the judge can go through the debtor's assets and determine if actions such as wage garnishments or bank account seizures can take place.If the debtor doesn't show up to that hearing, the hammer of justice can come down hard and fast. From there, the judge can order the debtor in contempt of court and issue a warrant for their arrest. If this seems unnecessarily punitive, the price to get out of jail is even more so, say consumer advocates: Generally, the judge sets the cost of bail at the amount of the disputed debt, an amount which is then turned over to the creditor. "This is the private use of government resources to collect debt," Pete Barry, partner at law firm Barry & Slade LLC, told Walletpop. One of Barry's clients was arrested at her workplace for not filling out and sending back a form demanded by the creditor. The client, Barry says, suffered the humiliation of having to have her boss come to the jail and post a bond before she could be released. The bond money, he added, was turned over to the creditor. "They're using the court system as their collection agent," he says. "There are big issues," says Ira Rhinegold, executive director of the National Association of Consumer Advocates. "Minnesota isn't the only place it's happening, but it seems to be the worst. They're leading the way," he says, noting that NACA has heard similar stories out of Wisconsin, New Jersey, Arkansas and Washington. Rhinegold tells Walletpop that some unscrupulous debt collectors never even send debtors the required notification that the case is being taken to court. Then the debtor fails to show up and the collector wins a default judgment, which can pave the way for imprisonment until they post their bond. What's behind all of this? "In some ways it stems from the growth of the debt buying industry," says Rhinegold. Collection agencies buy debt for pennies on the dollar, then hire lawyers to chase after even the smallest amounts. Of all of the unfair aspects of this chain of events, advocates say the most galling is that, in many cases, consumers may not even be legally responsible for the debts for which they're being jailed. In fact, the debt may not even be theirs, the amount may be inflated by penalties and attorney's fees, and it's almost certainly been written off by the original creditor -- who then resold it for pennies on the dollar to a debt-collection firm that plays hardball to get money from consumers. Often, says Rhinegold, the collector doesn't even have the paperwork that would prove that existence of the debt. In these cases, the judge will dismiss the case against the debtor. All the debtor had to do was show up for their day in court. For this reason, Gail Hillebrand, financial services campaign manager at nonprofit Consumers Union, says it's vitally important for consumers to respond if you get a letter threatening legal action and requiring a court appearance. The name of the collector can change because of how often debt is resold, she warns. So if you have an outstanding debt, don't assume that a notice that seems to come from a different company than the original lender is junk mail. "The problem is that people don't realize what it is," she says. It's important to do some research first, though. If the debt isn't yours, you can dispute it. Even if it is, showing up to court can sometimes lead to an outcome in your favor if the collector can't prove you owe the debt. Either way, it will keep you from being hauled off in handcuffs.

If you know that you do NOT owe this debt, immediately dispute it VIA certified mail with return receipt requested. Keep copies of everything you send. Per the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) they have five days to respond. If they continue calling or attempt to get a judgment against you without first providing proof that you legitimately owe it, you can sue them for statuatory damages:Today's Date Your NameYour Address Dorsey Thornton and Associates7302 Basalt DrUnion City, GA 30291VIA CERTIFIED MAILDear {insert name of collector or company}, I am writing in response to your (letter or phone call) dated {insert date}, (copy enclosed) because I do not believe I owe what you say I owe. This is the first I've heard from you, or any other company on this matter therefore, in accordance with the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Section 809(b): Validating Debts: (b) If the consumer notifies the debt collector in writing within the thirty-day period described in subsection (a) that the debt, or any portion thereof, is disputed, or that the consumer requests the name and address of the original creditor, the debt collector shall cease collection of the debt, or any disputed portion thereof, until the debt collector obtains verification of the debt or any copy of a judgment, or the name and address of the original creditor, and a copy of such verification or judgment, or name and address of the original creditor, is mailed to the consumer by the debt collector. I respectfully request that you provide me with the following information: (1) the amount of the debt; (2) the name of the creditor to whom the debt is owed; (3) Provide a verification or copy of any judgment (if applicable); (4) Proof that you are licensed to collect debts in (insert name of your state).Be advised that I am fully aware of my rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Fair Credit Reporting Act. For instance, I know that: Because I have disputed this debt in writing within 30 days of receipt of your dunning notice, you must obtain verification of the debt or a copy of the judgment against me and mail these items to me at your expense; you cannot add interest or fees except those allowed by the original contract or state law. You do not have to respond to this dispute but if you do, any attempt to collect this debt without validating it, violates the FDCPA.Also be advised that I am keeping very accurate records of all correspondence from you and your company including recording all phone calls and I will not hesitate to report violations of the law to my State Attorney General, the Federal Trade Commission and the Better Business Bureau. I have disputed this debt; therefore, until validated you know your information concerning this debt is inaccurate. Thus, if you have already reported this debt to any credit-reporting agency (CRA) or Credit Bureau (CB) then, you must immediately inform them of my dispute with this debt. Reporting information that you know to be inaccurate or failing to report information correctly violates the Fair Credit Reporting Act § 1681s-2. Should you pursue a judgment without validating this debt, I will inform the judge and request the case be dismissed based on your failure to comply with the FDCPA. Finally, if you do not own this debt, I demand that you immediately send a copy of this dispute letter to the original creditor so they are also aware of my dispute with this debt.
