We have been getting phone calls from bmg aka global group holdings too. They have called my cell looking for my husband, they have called his parents, our home phone and co - workers. They have been calling us for over a year now. Every time they claim they are filing a law suit against us unless we pay the money but we have yet to see anything. Today i got a phone call from a mr. Micheal grey who claims he is an investigator trying to track down my husband to serve him papers. Really?? We are not hard to find. I would like to see these papers. I'm sure this is a scam and i have already reported these people to the fbi before and i guess i am going to have to do it again.

BMG - Credit report
National Credit Solution
3675E. I 240 Service Rd
Oklahoma City
United States

I obtained a copy of my Experian Credit report, and on it was this account for National Credit Solution for BMG Music. I have not ever had a BMG account and would like this removed from my credit report.

I got the same call. My husband first told me that someone had called him and said that I was being charged with Fraud because Id moved to 3 different counties in NC bouncing checks and getting payday loans. One of the counties I'd never even hear of. About a week later, I get the call. I hung up on the first guy, (he called my cell phone.) Minutes later Michael Grey called my house phone saying he was an investigator and that papers would be filed on Monday. I told them to serve me the papers... haven't heard from them since.

I also received a call from J.T. Keller & Associates (585)645-0068 - I have to say...it was scary. They said that 3 years ago I took a payday loan and did not repay and I had until 5pm (it was 4pm when they called) to pay or the result will be a warrant issued for my arrest.
This was my first contact with the agency, I asked that they send me documentation of the debt. I have filed a complaint with the FTC and have found several blogs online with people complaining that they had a similar situation as did I.

I do not understand why this company is allowed to continue this type of behavior? I see several Better Business complaints against this collection agency, and from what I read on the FTC they broke 2 laws when they called me...1st the threatened jail several times and the guy who called also claimed to be an attorney. I can only pray that the FTC shuts down JT Keller & Associates, it is wrong what they are doing and from what I understand illegal.

This work related friend of mine received a telephone call from these people BMG Payloans etc. They gave her a telephone number to which I called them and I spoke to Mrs Tammy Mixon. She tells me that I owe them $500.00 but would offer me a settlement of $400.00. I made it clear that I never ever obtained a loan from these people and to add validity to my statement they lied to me and told me that the loan was obtained in the month of August 2006.I had started a new job in that same month so apparently there was a zero percent chance a loan agency would give me a loan after a starting a new job.I asked lots of important questions to which the secretary refused to answer. I am literally getting irate and fed ip with these people calling my job, personal references, and relatives as well. I will also be taking serious legal action towards these people. I am also reporting them to as many government agencies I can. I am through taking bs from these people it is only a matter of time that they will eventually be caught.

Glad to see this site. Looks like it is still going on. I got the same call. I'm guessing they pick an amount that people will just pay to avoid the headache of thinking they are going to court, etc. I knew it didn't sound right. I'll wait on my certified letter or served papers.

I also received a call today, but mine was from some Brian Davis from Westwood, told me that I am going to be served papers for defaulting on a payday loan. A loan I never recall taking out. Said that I owe BMG 1100 for loan and legal fees but loan was originally for 300 and would settle for 600. Told them no. Told them that I had filed bankruptcy back in 08 so they would not be able to take me to court. Brian then told me that there was a clause from BMG that I would not include this in a bankruptcy. I said if that's the case then why doesn't any financial company put clauses in so all their money is guaranteed to be paid back. Offered my lawyers name and number but wouldn't take it, and said that it wouldn't help the situation and that a lawsuit was still going to be filed. Glad that I found this site and that I'm not the only one being harassed.

I have also been getting calls the past couple of days. I answered one call and a lady said she was a private locator and that she needed to meet up with me to give me some papers, I asked for what and she told me she didn't have that information but I could call a company and she gave me a number and a claim number. When I called them I got some jerk that couldn't tell me anything and kept putting me on hold. He just said that I had a loan for a company and I owed 630.00 and if I would settle they would remove the 200.00 locator fee. He couldn't tell me the company I took the loan from or anything after putting me on hold 3 times he told me that the loan was through BMG a year ago and that I was going to be charged with fraud and something else. I asked to speak to a manager and he couldn't tell me where the money was sent or if it was a check. Finally the man gave me the last 4 digits of what he said was my routing number they did not match. Now I am getting calls non stop from a local number that I can't find any information on.

Received a phone call today from a Vivian with Legal Offices Mutual stating that I owed a payday loan from BMG also known as Triple A services from September 2011. Vivian called from 855-478-8238 with a case id# claiming that I had a pending fraud case with the local district court in the county I live in located in NC. Vivian claimed she worked with the summons processing division. She also claimed in my return phone call that she had verified with my bank that I had received the funds and requested the bank to revoke any authorization for repayment of the so called funds I requested over the Internet. Vivian also very professionally let me know that they had my IP address from the computer I used which matched my actual address. She stated that she will contact my human resource department so papers could be served on my job. Little did Vivian know I also checked with my bank who denied any communications and verified there was not any transaction posted to my account from a loan during that time and that the employer where she was going to have papers served is a local detention center. Needless to say Vivian was not a happy camper and refused to give me any documentation on the so called funds that I had allegedly requested.

I am so glad that I decided to research more about this company. I received and email from a Troy saying that I took out a loan in 2008 and that i didn't pay them. It was weird because when i called he just said hello like I called his home number. Didn't state what company he was with or nothing and funny thing is that they had all my old information but my email has remained the same. I even asked why are they just now contacting me about something in 2008 if they had my email address.. He didn't have an answer for that. What was even more funny was that when I talked to him the first time the name of the company that he stated wasn't even the same name of the company that he was calling me with the 2nd time! He keeps saying he will call the company and get back to me but he will not give me their information directly!! I'm glad that I do my research!!

BMG has sent me a letter as well stating that they will be filing a suit against me for a loan I never made. The initial loan was suppose to be 350 and I now owe them 850 from 2012. Some of the information is correct and some is not but I never made a loan with them. I just received this email in September 2013 complete with a case number and a call back number. I missed the email until today when I was cleaning out my box. They claim that they mail to my address but I did not receive anything. This is scary but I was relieved to find I am not alone in this and will follow through to a resolution.

I received a call stating that i owed $1350.00 to setting a loan that i had taken out in 2009. Sharon Jackson was the person that i was dealing with on the phone. She was very unprofessional in stating that i had 15 minutes to settle or she was issuing a warrant for my arrest and going to make sure my D.L was also revoked. When i tried to tell her that i did not have that amt of money she hung up on me and said have a nice time getting arrested at my Job and being embarrassed. I called Sharon back and she stated "I don't know what you don't understand Mrs. ***** but you had 5 min to make payment or I will send over the warrant request to your county police department." I of course am scared to death and don't want any issues but i don't know if i really took out a loan through them as she gave me a very strange case number but no other information. I have done my due-diligence on researching this and keep coming up with pages stated that they are not BBB certified, have been kicked out of California for the same type of practices. She had reached me through my father-in-law's number and had my very old bank acct. info, my very old email address and my employer name. When i would ask for information Sharon would tell me she had to get my file and then would ask me to hold and would disconnect the call and i would call back and she would be very snooty to me and again say things like "i don't know what you don't understand this is very serious and you will go to jail". Sharon stated several times that i broke the law and created a bunch of felonies. Scared please help!!!
