My wifes work has received a phone call the past 3 days but it was after she had already left work. They said they were from the Crime Monitoring Division and his name was Jonathan Davis and he called from a Los Angeles area code 310-362-9387. He said he was representing American Credit Services.
After multiple phone calls, which we answered no questions and they he wouldn't answer any either, we became frustrated. He said my wife took out a $200 loan on May 18th, 2008 and that if we didn't pay it back, my wife and her parents were going to jail tomorrow at 11am. The sheriffs department were coming to get her!
He sounded middle eastern and talked very fast and was rude. I mocked his accent (not a great idea-but i was ticked off!) and he got mad and hung up. If this scam happens to you, don't talk. If you live in the USA, you know the judicial system takes forever and that you would get papers first!
Anyway, since he sounded fake and wouldn't answer my questions, i checked the internet to find out and luckily i found this websit where hundreds of people had been through what we had! Im not an avid internet user, but if it weren't for it, i wouldn't have known this was a scam! For all of you who read this, take a breath and relax. ITS A SCAM!!!
