THIS IS A SCAM:
Just got a voicemail from 716-335-9947 today - the woman said her name was Miss Freeman from the "legal offices of PRG" with similar warnings about a legal action they had received that was to be filed against my name and my social (security number, I assume).
I have had similar calls in the past from similiar idiots who threaten to sue me or take legal action against me for either an unpaid loan or check fraud, etc. None of these people are willing or able, when pressed, to provide details on precisely what account or company they allege you owe money to.
THESE CREEPS ARE RUNNING A SCAM. THEY THREATEN TO TAKE YOU TO JAIL, TO INFORM YOUR EMPLOYER, AND ALL SORTS OF CRAP. WHAT THEY ARE DOING IS HARRASSING AND SCARING CONSUMERS LIKE US WITH THE END GOAL OF EXTORTING MONEY FROM US.
IF YOU RECEIVE A CALL FROM THEM, REPORT THEM TO YOUR STATE'S ATTORNEY GENERAL OFFICE IMMEDIATELY. DO NOT GIVE THEM THE TIME OF DAY, AND WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT GIVE
CALLED MY WORK NUMBER STATING THEY HAD A COMPLAINT AGAINST ME AND GAVE A COMPLAINT NUMBER AND TO CALL BACK TO 877-799-9234 EXT. 317 FOR YOLANDA SHULLY BEFORE PAPERS WERE FILED WITH JEFFERSON COUNTY WHERE I LIVE IN KENTUCKY...HAVE NO IDEA WHO THESE PEOPLE ARE!
THEY CALLED FROM 716-335-9947 WHICH SHOWED ON MY CALLER ID.
Left voice mail identifying himself at Paul Jones from Zimmerman, Young and Associates stating that he was calling for PA, my name regarding an original report for identity theft and that he needed to know where the alleged report was filed since he could find no record and left his number to call back as 716-335-9051 ext 106. I had filed an online identity fraud report with the federal agency and was supposed to follow up with local, but was sick and couldn't get there so never followed through. His message made perfect sense, so called back, then got sent to a female supervisor who turned the tables and made this into a debt that I owed to a pay day loan. I have no recollection of this loan although I had used others while I was unemployed and having to fight to get my disability approved, but those were all paid off and no communications from any of them asking for more money of any kind. Anway, avoided giving her my credit card until I could check on how I would find the money
