I get calls from them telling me they are looking for someone by my name. They ask me to call them at the 888 nbr. When I talk to them they allege I took a loan out 2 years ago with a bank I've never heard of. They also stated I was living in Garden Grove, Ca at the time I took the loan out. I haven't lived there for the past 12 years. They gave me an amount that was due and said if I gave my bank info the bill could be settled now. I told them no and that I needed proof in writing of this alleged loan and a copy of the contract they allege I signed. She wished me a nice day and hung upShow more
For the last week of July 2017 I kept receiving voicemails on my cell phone from the offices of FMR threatening if I did not call back "about the whereabouts" (of whom?) . they threatened to contact all references and personal contacts. So finally I made a call back from my skype phone and got them to remove my number from their list or I would file an FTC complaint as well as one with the A.G. I am Still going to file reports against their threatening calls and daily voicemails. DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. I have a feeling they are up to no good.Show more
This agency tracked down my mother in law in Illinois and stated that my husband owes money...Knowingly knowing that we owe no one , I called this number. According to Mr. Collins that my husband took out payroll advance money on 11/19/2013 for 300, told him it was a mistake that we never took out any loan and if we did it would never be for that ,only for a mortgage. He gave me my husband's correct 4 digits SS# and 4 digits of our bank account. So I thought perhaps someone stole my husband's information. I requested for him to send me via US Postal all the information so I could present it to my bank. So i gave him my new address, he also mentioned my previous address.When I got off the phone it downed on me, that we moved 2011 from that address and in 2013 my bank had the change of address for 2 years! Checked my account for that year just to assure myself and no such amount was deposited in my account or removed from my account. Then I caught on to the scam, this so-called "agency" is banking on people that defaulted on their small loans like advance payroll and they pressure people to pay before it goes to lawyers. In our case I refused to pay for something we do not owe to anyone, requested proper information in writing and firmly indicated to this person that once I get documentation from him I will present to my bank and they will contact them that no money was deposited in that account and no loan was taken. Asked him what was his location of his agency he informed me , they are out of Buffalo NY. And his extension was #325Show more
