Sonic Cash Net — Awful company
This morning I received threatening voice mails from a person named 'Michael'. This person had a very thick foreign accent. The call was made from a Verizon phone which, when called back had been disconnected. The 818 number was left to call back.
The caller claimed in the messages that he represented someone I owed money to and if either myself or my attorney did not call 'post haste' that Officers of the Law would appear at my door to arrest me the next day. At the end of the messages the person said, 'If you do not comply, I can only wish you good luck for the safety of you and your children!'
When I called back I was put on hold for more than 15 minutes. So I hung up and called right back. I received a busy signal. Later in the day I was able to get through.See Top 10 Worst Companies in Los Angeles, CAThe party at the other end of the line claimed to be an attorney representing Sonic Cash Net and proceeded to tell me that I owed them money -- he would not give the amount-- he would not give me the company's phone number so I could verify the authenticity of this claim, but told me that if I did not cooperate with him, I would be hauled off to jail and charged with bank fraud and other federal crimes. I hung up on him. My husband and I reported the incident to the FTC immediately.
After filing the FTC report, we 'Googled' Sonic Cash Net and found massive numbers of postings about their disreputable 'collection' practices. This is a scam run by foreign nationals attempting to coerce people into sending them funds through Western Union to 'absolve' themselves from the bogus charges being made against us by these people.
Don't cave in, don't give them any personal information. Report them to the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) and your local police department.
