I have no idea who this called is. I got call from an Eric James that he has papers to serve and said if I have questions to call the plantiff at 888-200-9171. All I keep getting is music and then a voice mail to leave a msg. Left msg today and yesterday and no ret call as of yet. No company or person name on VM.
I rcvd a frantic text msg from a dear friend of mine claiming she been harrassed numerous times from this guy who claims to be Eric James Atty@Law. He told her there were warrants out for her arrest and she would be served with legal papers at her job bcuz I had committed fraud writing bad checks from Bank of West using her name. First off, I've never written any bad checks under someone else's name NOR have I ever banked with Bank of West. My friend is very upset, so I call the number 888-200-9171 and a woman answers the phone asking me what phone number I'm calling from. As soon as she verified my name and # she began screaming telling me I've committed serious fraud writing checks from Bank of West using my friends name to a company called Midland Financial and they are serving me with legal papers today. She said the client (Midland) is willing to settle with me for $1000 some odd dollars if I pay it right now. I tried feverishly arguing with her but she wouldn't let me get a word
8/16 Telephone call from a recording saying his name is Eric James he has papers to serve to me at home or at my place of employment. He said if I had any questions to call the plaintiff at 888-200-9171. This is a definite scam. If you call the number they will probably say you owe money for some bogas payday loan or whatever. GIVE THEM NOTHING. DO NOT CALL THEM AND DO NOT GIVE ANY INFORMATION. THE LEGAL SYSTEM DOES NOT WORK THIS WAY. CALL YOUR LOCAL POLICE DEPARTMENT, THE FBI AND ATTORNEY GENERAL. THIS MUST BE STOPPED.
This number is listed as the Customer Service number on many Fraudulent Checks. They should be reported immediately!! ww.IC3.com.
I was hit on 3-12-13 for 304.23 and have no idea how they got my routing and bank account numbers. It has happend to many people.
Please report them. They didn't call me, the number was just on the forged check.
