I too have received several calls from persons with middle eastern dialects with American names like "Ken Johnson" or "John Peterson", etc.. They claim that I owe $487 to Cash Advance USA and I have had eight calls from what they call a "federal officer", an "attorney" or " federal marshall" saying at first that if I didn't send payment in full via Western Union within one hour that officers would be at my door to arrest me for wire fraud and not paying the debt. That was three months ago. Since that time, I have recevied seven other calls. The one today was the topper. "Rajni" (or whatever the hell is real name is) or "John Peterson" as he called himself was yelling at me and told me NOT TO INTERRUPT him! He said it was too late to do anything about this and that I could expect officers at my door and at my place of employment to place me under arrest within one hour.
I previously told the second caller that I was going to notify the Idaho Attorney General's office, as they refused to send me any documentation and as soon as I said that, they hung up. I phoned the Attorney General's office and was told by a very nice woman that they get literally hundreds (IN IDAHO ALONE!) a day from people who these predators try to scare into sending them money.
I intend to try to either file a police report or a report with the Attorney General's office next week if possible. I'm sick of these idiot ragheads coming into our country and trying to steal money in hundreds of different ways from Americans. Not to mention the fact that they take jobs that should go to Americans, but I digress.
I am pissed off, done with these people one way or the other and will do whatever I can to help bring this particular scam to an end so that they will quit calling people and scaring the hell out of them by threatening arrest.
