Morgan & Associates / SCAM - FRAUD
Hello - My name is Dave. On 13 November 2010, at 8:57am, I got a phone call from this telephone number on my cell phone [protected]. I was unable to answer the phone at that time. I got a voicemail several seconds later. *Broken English Male**India* or other foreign accent. The voice-mail said and I quote "This message is intended for, my name, with the last four of 1234. Of course he used my real last four. David the very second your receive this message I need you or your attorney to call the issue at hand is very time sensitive. My name is Kenny Rogers, my contact information is [protected]. Do not discard this message, David if you discard this message and I do not hear from you or your attorney today, then the only this I can do for you is wish you good luck as the situation unfolds on you.
At 9:15am I returned the call. The first time I got a voice mail saying the person at extension 987 was unable to take my call please leave a message. At 9:20am I tried again. This time I got through to a Leo Fernandez, I told him that I just received a call from this number and I was returning the call as it was urgent. He went through some papers and told me to please wait just one moment. After finding my records he said is this David using my last name with the SSN# [protected]? I said yes. What can I help you with? The man named Leo said that he was from Morgan and Associates in San Antonio, TX. I said hello, what can I help you with? He asked me if I lived at an address that I lived at over 10 years ago. I said no, I do not live there and haven’t for 10 years. He tried to get off the phone with me. I said listen here, you said this was urgent; you have my SSN so you got me on the phone what the hell do you want? He said that charges were filed against me in the state of Indiana for fraud and theft. He started reading me this statement which I could not interrupt, which sounded like he was reading me a subpoena, Count one fraud, Count two theft, blah blah blah. When he finished he said do I have any questions. I said yes. Who is the company that is suing me? He said he could not give me that information. How much do I owe this said person? He could not give me that information. After about 5 min on the phone, he told me that US Cash Advance gave me a loan to my bank, knew my bank and the address, by direct deposit and I have failed to make payments. The company was not willing to settle the debt and they will be taking me to court in Indiana. What is the name of your attorney? I verified the information and asked if he was a lawyer. He said yes, for Morgan and Associates. I said that I never heard of US Cash Advance and that I would not use a company for a payday loan. He said that he will have to notify my place of business USAF... NOTE: Everyone in the world sees USAF and the first thing they think of is United States Air Force... but he didn't know that he just said he would have to notify my place of business at USAF what I have done and the legal matters that were against me. I asked him how we can work something out.. He said if I pay the amount that I owe off today, which was $1, 499.00 then this would all go away, but he would have to speak with the company first to see if they would accept my offer without court. He said the court cost would be in the amount of $4, 000.00. I said I can't pay that amount today and he said that he was sorry and that he will proceed with the court. I said that was fine with me. He would not send me anything in the mail or anything.
While I was on the phone with my bank to freeze my accounts, my wife got a phone call from Kenny Rogers. A completely different number than mine, so this told me this guy had my wife’s cell phone number and my number. He was asking for me. The same phone numbers everything, except the law firm was Jesse and Jesse. He asked me the same stuff I asked him who he was.. He told me Kenny Rogers.. I told him Kenny Rogers is a singer not a lawyer. He got really mad and said I know that and it is none of my business what his parents named him and he starting speaking to someone in another language and hung up the phone. I called back. The person answered and said can I help you? I hung up... I contacted my bank, credit bureaus, local, and county authorities. What worries me is that our cell phones are only 3 months old and on Verizon network. Did Verizon have a leak of information? Who are these men calling and what is he going to do with my information? I will also contact Morgan and Associates. I traced the number to an invalid number, and looked up Morgan and Associates on Google.. I didn’t even find the Firms webpage until page 5 all these complaints and scams about this people’s stories. BECARFUL! Leo Fernandez or Kenny Rogers could call you next.
