Client First / Stuctured settlement scam

1 FL, United States Review updated:

Recieved phone calles from Client first, they found out my unpublished phone number. They stated they found court records that I had a structured settlement and wanted to help me withdrawl my funds to pay off debit for a small fee. I advised then i did not want to discuss anything with them. The company proceeded to have several people call me and leaving messages that we know you have a structured settlement and let us help you withdrawl money for a fee. I tried to return the calls from the number that was on my caller id, the numbers would not take incoming calls and unable to return the call to the number displayed on my caller ID. THe number that was left on answering machine to call back on i was able to reach someone, they first told me that we are not a collection agency, we want to help you withing money from your structured settlement and pay off your debt for a fee. At the same time I was recieved phone calls from a company on my unpublished number from Northland group, giving me settlement offers on my bad debit from citiband, i check they did not own the debt. Client first & Northland group are working together to get my structured settlement and collecting past due debt that they did not own. Once I told client first that I would call the police all phone calls from client first stop and so did the phone calls from the Northland group

    Traditionally, structured settlement companies work with people to help them get money for their settlements when they need it. There’s actually no affiliation with Client First and any credit card debt collection agency. You must be confused. In fact, I did some research and found that Northland is a debt collection agency, but there is no affiliation between the two companies. You should do some research on Google and check your facts before posting misconstrued comments. You may want to remove your complaint because you may be confusing others who really need assistance.

    I was a former employee for Client First and have watched the salespeople celebrate as they basically robbed a person of their annuity. They take full advantage of these people and steal their money. Once the transaction gets approved by the court the person needs to wait about anther 2 weeks for their money and most of the time they'll only get a small portion and strung along as they get pieces of the agreed upon sum. In my opinion i think they try to tire the person out and they will give up on calling for their money so the company can keep it. This company is so ruthless when i was laid off along with about a dozen others, they even wanted to jerk me around on my final check. In Florida they have 24hrs from time of lay off to give you your check. Now the next day i show up expecting to get my check. They then start to jerk me around and say they will FedEx it to me. After everything I've witnesses from this company i was not OK with that. I told the HR woman (Sandra) that i will not except that, she refused to issue my check, so i told her i was calling the police and hung up. I know the police can't do much but i wanted to cover all of my bases. Well to wrap this up, when the police showed up they asked my to give them 30 minutes and will issue me a check, which they did (shorted my overtime), still owe me about $200. My point is if an former employee needs to call the police for money owed to them, i can only imagine for a person with no ties to the company and is owed money from them may be up the river with put a paddle. Call a different company, don't do business with these crooks.

    I hate to say it but I was a victim of just this.. They strung a $20, 000 advance (they made $36, 000) over the course of 2 months after I received approval which ended up hurting me more in the long run.. IDK how many times the agent I was working with or as I like to say it working for, had me calling met life about my annuities and future payments as well as set up my own notary, the lost goes on. Garbage.. Stay away!!

    I received six calls in 5 min from this number. They didnt leave a message, just kept calling. I called back it went to an extension, but had no business name, no recording to leave a message. I said "You just called, give me a call back". With in a few seconds they called again asking for my husband by first name. Told them he wasnt available, the guy went on the explain that my husband was underfunded and they had money for him but it had been returned so they just needed to speak with my husband so they can get him the funds. I told him that my husband wont be giving them any information over the phone so they could send a letter and then my husband can deal with it. The guy then read off our street number and city. I said "well you have that right, so go ahead and send him something in writing" Then I asked, are you trying to send him a check, he said "I cant get into that with you, we could wire or work something out, said he was with Client First and works with my husbands annuity company. I said "Well then just call that company and get the information". I asked for the name of the annuity company and he said he couldn't get give me any details!. I told him my husband wont be calling him back and if he really has business with my husband he will be able to send something via mail. Then I looked up the phone number and it is for a Plumbing company in Ft. Lauderdale. Something is not right. Call was from a man named James Davis from 954 519 2458 said he was from Client First. Something is very wrong here. I felt I should put this out there in case it is a scam and others are getting similar calls.

    This is a predatory "company" that looks through public records and sends out mass mailings hoping a gullible person will call them. They've sent my mother mailings for years and she's never had a structured settlement! After my mother's passing five years ago she still receives them to this day! I finally called them and asked how they received information about her, who gave them that information, etc. Then he asked if they could talk to my mom! I told him she passed away five years ago and I wanted to know what they were trying to get out of her. He said it was about her structured settlement and I said she never had one and AGAIN she passed away five years ago! I was pressing him for answers and I wanted answers, then the coward hung up on me! BEWARE: Their mailings have no return address on envelopes or deceiving form letter trying to trick you into calling them. DO NOT do business with this deceptive business!
