Asset Recovery Associates [ARA]debt collector scam calls

ARA just called me and was very vague about why they were calling and transferred me from "Michael Williams" to "Ms Bloomberg" where she began to tell me my social security number in full, birth date and that I'm over 65 and asked if I still worked and told me I owe 24, 000 on a credit card with a 5000 dollar limit. As I listened she proceeded to tell me she will accept 22, 000 because she would hate to have to report me to the credit bureau today and hurt my 900 credit score and bring it down to a 700. She even gave me the credit card number. She said they are bringing a lawsuit to get their money. She wouldn't let me speak or ask many questions. She kept saying excuse me. Finally I just said thanks for telling me all my dead mothers information I am 40 yrs old and have no idea why my number was associated to my mothers name and info or where they get all this information from. She never even let me know her social even when she was my beneficiary on my life insurance. I'm pretty sure she'd be pissed if she spent 40 years making sure I never learned it and then these fools who specifically said this isn't a scam cuz we know all your info, gave it to me over the phone. She said [censored] your moms not dead and that she knew I was my mom and I said do I sound sixty 67 and she said oh whatever and hung up on me.

    Asset Recovery Associates [ARA]scamming on non legitimate credit card

    I received a call on my cell on 3/27/19 from Tammy at [protected] asking for my husband. I told her he was not available, but I was his wife, how could I help her. She said unless I could verify the last 4 digits of his social, she could not talk to me. So I told her fine, then dont call me again. She stopped me and told me to hold on she would get a supervisor to see if he could over ride that. Ron Rogers came on the line and told me he could tell me what it was about. It was about a Bank of America Master Card from 2006 and that he had a Federal Affidavit that we must pay or the debt would be attached to our mortgage. He said the balance was $28, 263.64 but they were willing to settle for $4800. I informed him that we never had a Master Card. He said "Yes you did because payments were being made on it from [protected]." He then told me notices had been mailed to an address we lived in 20 years ago (but not during that time line) and that the references on the account were me, my husbands mother, and his first wife (both of whom are now deceased! And Seriously - who would use their ex wife as a credit reference!) I laughed at him and told him he must not have paid for the entire report on my husband from wherever he got that info because it was ridiculous. I told him if this is for real, send me something in writing. (still not giving him our current address) He got very belligerent and told me we would be sorry if we did not pay this debt that we owe because it will be attached to our mortgage (even though he did not have our current address), our bank account could be frozen, and we may even face criminal charges. I "politely" told him he was crazy as a loon and Good Try, but he wasn't getting my money. I am smart enough to know those things will not happen. This company is really good at scaring people - Yall dont fall for it!
