Claiming a lawsuit has been filed against me

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 37 votes
Contact information:
PCS Legal Dept of NY/Advance Cash USA
Las Cruces, New Mexico
United States
I have received several phone calls from different people, all with Arabian accents so thick i can barely understand them, and all claiming American names - very simple American names. Today the Supervisor I spoke with was Brian Smith and Kenny answered the phone. They are claiming I received $300 deposited to my bank account in October of 2010. The funny thing is my account was not opened until December of 2010. I have bank statements showing nothing has been put into my account. I have since filed a complaint with the OAG in New Mexico and am preparing to file the same complaint in NY and CA where these companies claim to be. The other company that has contacted me is claiming to be a law office in California. I contacted the State Bar of California and have never heard of that law office. It was Steve Williams & Associates. I am so frustrated because i want to find these people and make them pay for what they are doing to people. When I research the company names or phone numbers, I cannot find anything unless I pay for it. There has to be something we can do to press charges against these scammers.

I am an American with an "American" accent. You would have no problem understanding me. Can I call you?

Thank you so much for putting this on here! This is a horrible scam! It just happened to me this morning. They are calling my work and calling my cell phone demanding payment of my cash loan from January 2011. They are threatening to take legal action. The number they left me to contact them is completely bogus, and when I ask them questions, they don't answer them and keep just yelling into the phone. This is nuts! I am going to file a complaint, and hopefully something is done with these people! It's not very promising considering they leave no information regarding who they are!

Glad I found this. My caller, that I can barely understand, says there is lien against my "identity" and that I may lose my job or my paycheck since I have committed fraud. Something will be filed in a "county of Texas". What is really scary is that he called out the last four of SS#. I did take out a loan online for emergency car repair, but I have paid them back and everything is right by them. Caller ID came up Name Unavailable 0000, and he left the a number for me to call but crap I can't understand it. I'm hoping they call again. This time I will answer and talk to them.

Got another call from heavily accented "Officer Anthony Biden" to return his call or he will turn me in. Could not understand the rest of it.

I'm glad to find this information posted here. I'm getting similar calls from an "Eddie Brown" and "David Cooper", both purporting to be calling from PCS Legal Department. The most recent call this morning is threatening 'severe action' if we don't return the call and try to resolve the issue at hand. What issue???? We have no idea! When they started calling months ago, I called our bank to verify that there wasn't some mistaken loan deposited into our account. They had no record of any such transaction. Since then, the calls from these obviously foreign men with extremely heavy accents have become more frequent. My brother even called me asking why someone would call him looking for me or my husband. Yes, they somehow have our family information and are calling around. WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE? HOW DO THEY HAVE PERSONAL INFORMATION? How can I stop their harrassment?

The calls finally stopped after I told them I knew it was a scam and that you don't even use the right legal terms, then I called them every foul word I could think of and threaten to hunt them down...then they hung up...but it was fun

I have been getting these calls my self. I was stupid and did some pay day loans. They have even called my daughters demanding that they have to pay them. Never again tho, and that was over a year ago. The jerks calling me have been very demanding and threaten. I have gotten messages from a Jason at 646-652-0488, Nat Johnson the last two days on my cell & work place his number is 626-227-0276. I did go to my local authorites today to file a complaint & the sheriff who took my info is also getting the same calls & all he can do is report it. I pray that they get what is coming to them and they leave the innocent people out here trying to make an honest dollar alone.

I also am getting these same calls! They claim I have to pay them $410 or a law suit will be filed against me within 2 days at my town's court house. HAHA ok well, my town doesnt have a court house and it takes a lot longer than 2 days for anything to move through court. I played stupid and said I was willing to resolve this matter but they can't give me an address where I can send payment via a money order, they insist on using a debit or credit card. The rude man told me to even go to the store and buy a pre-paid visa card. They won't say any information about themselves or location at all, I can imagine because they know people are after them, even playing along with them and saying "oh I just want this mattered cleaned up" they will no reveal any information at all. ***PLEASE LET'S ALL WORK TOGETHER AND END THIS TYPE OF FRAUD AND HARASSMENT***

I am having the exact same issue. They keep asking for my lawyers info. I gave them the lawyers info and I'm recording all conversations with them. I've told them about two laws stating that they are not alLowed to call me at work and once you revoke the right to call at my number they can be sued. I was advised to record all convos with them which I have started doing. I am so angry that they have my ss# and other info. Am I safe? I have no idea how to stop them. I'm having the same issues with them they give out no information and get rude when you question them at all. Is there anything I can do?

i am having the same problem they are asking for my husband by first and last name when they leave a message keep in mind they are calling from either a 9999 or 30 code (thats what comes up on my cellphone) and saying that there has been an avidavit filed against his name and social security number. the area code is very similiar and is out of NY as well. I dont answer when they call and my husband does not return their calls because we have never received any paperwork stating any of these alligations. Please someone needs to do something about these folks because they are scamming alot of money out of folks that have no clue they are being ripped off!!!

I have also been dealing with this company for almost 2 months now. They also said that I had a payday loan direct deposited to my account, which I also have proof (bank statements) that this never occured!!! I am now getting threatening phone calls, stating that they are going to show up at my employement, that they are going to have me arrested, that they are going to show up at my home. I have filed a police report, alerted my bank, my job and everyone else I can think of. I don't like hearing that anyone else is going through this, however at the same time it is nice to know that there is someone out there that understands how frustrating this is. If anyone has any ideas on how we can stop these people, PLEASE let me know!!! These people just sounded like debt collectors at first, just a little pushy, but when I asked for more information they would not give me anything, when I asked to speak with a supervisor, they wouldn't let me. Now when they call and leave messages, they are threatening and rude, screaming and yelling!!! I don't see how there seams to be nothing that anyone can do to stop this, isn't this harrasssment???

Has anyone sued them?
 24th of Oct, 2011 by   Blueeyedblond 0 Votes
I would sue if I had any real info on them. I have recorded conversations and saved the voicemails they have left. Even though the number they give might be a US number I am sure they are not in the US With the way you can reroute things these days. I think all we can do is protect ourselves. I called the credit reporting agencies and put a fraud alert on my account as well as at my bank. Notify your employer and any family members as they will try to call them too. Also if they threaten you file a police report so you have evidence in case they ever are caught. Also if possible record their conversation with you and inform them you revoke the right to contact them and give your attorneys number. I haven't had a call in a while but they've tried on two different occasions to harrase me.

I got into with these people again about a month ago. I informed them I know they are con-artists and I have reported them to my local Sheriff's Department. These Idiots called my place of work again last week & left the same stupid message on my voice mail with there threats. I am so sick of these idiots harrassing me and everyone else & I pray to the Good Lord that they get caught & thrown behind bars for a long time. Latest number I got the call from was 631-209-6009.

Horrible people! I included them in my bankruptcy and they are saying that I cannot do that and that they are pressing civil charges against myself and anyone I know (yeah right)! I have alerted my lawyer and hopefully he can take care of it.

I'm having the same problem. They call demanding from me but yet they want to give me no information. I finally just kept interrupting him until he told me his name and number . I have a Shawn at 347-637-6480 calling from New York.

I am a victim too, dumb enough they scared me into paying...now two months after I paid this $700 "debt" I almost set up a payment arrangement again. When I asked to speak to an "American" he said he is, he's Mexican...Right "Robert"! They said they were a law office and not the original owner of the debt, and that was why they could not send me original documentation. I then stated that a real law office would not take a case unless they had adequate documentation that this was a legitimate case..then came the run around. "It must be taken care of now. Tomorrow it will go into a subpoena and arrest for fraud." They are calling my work and telling them that i have committed fraud and am going to jail. They have called my sister and threatened her. I am really devastated because I thought I was getting a bill paid off and instead I just dumped heaven knows how much money to these people. I closed the account that the original pay day loan (yes I did take one out in an emergency) was deposited to, because of fraudulent activity. Now I wonder if it was these people. They have all my information. Where i work now, my cell, my social, my email, my physical address, and my closest family member. I paid off another "debt" to people with a similar accent over a year ago. Now I doubt that was legit. Are these people reporting these illegitimate debts to the credit reports? I am panicked to say the least.

Found them on the BBB website: http://www.bbb.org/NYC/Business-Reviews/collection-agencies/pcs-legal-services-in-brooklyn-ny-126439/Complaints/#breakdown

Has their number and everything. They have a F rating; no surprise. REPORT THEM to the FTC, FCC, and Attorney General. Any filing for lawsuits for debt collection is a CIVIL one, not criminal. They cannot have you arrested. Period. http://paydayloaninfo.org/state-information (check your state to make sure, but where I am, Washington, it is not a criminal charge).
