Crime Monitoring Division Law Firm / harrassment/scam
I got a call from the same company. They left a msg on my answering machine while I was at work warning me that me or my attorney needed to contact them, and ended the call that if I didn't then good luck to my kids due to the events that would unfold. I called back and spoke to "Will Connors" who had a indian accent and was hard to understand due to all the background noise. I asked what the call was about and he stated I owed a pay day loan for $300 that I took out in May 2008, and they were bringing up charges for fraud, writing a bad check, and failure to pay on the loan. I told him that I never even took out a pay day loan and he told me then that they were going to send someone to my home or work to arrest me on monday and bring me in for the charges. He then hung up. I called my court house to see if they had any info--none. So I called back and asked for the company name. He stated it was not a company but a law firm. I asked for the name of his "law firm" and he stated he worked for the crime monitoring division-- scam!!! He then said if I wasn't at home on monday they'd go to my work-- he knew where I worked and my position. He then said I'd better have my lawyer call him back in 20 min. I did call my lawyer. He told me that they couldn't do anything that they threatened. Even if they were ligit the only thing they could do would be go after me in a civil suit, my states statue of limitations has already passed on the so called other "charges". I also called the states attorneys office and the ftc and reported them. Do NOT give them any info. This is a SCAM.
