My phone number is unlisted.  Got a call at 6:13 in the morning.  Didn't get the phone - no message left. Got another call from another number who called at 6:15am and then again at 6:27 again from 303-913-3284 and then another call from 773-570-3255.  When you call back the first one is a busy signal, the second one rings with no answer and the third one you can't complete the call as dialed.  WTF??

This person is completely rude!  Keeps calling here for a manager no one wants to talk to him, he is insulting and lies about people calling him back when no one has.  He wont say what he wants but apparently he is with All Purpose Business Solutions.  Completely rude when they call, snide remarks so he gets hung up on because he calls 14 times a day and has the nerve to call back and ask why we hung up.

I remember when I entered the drawing at a beer festival I asked the guy what the draw was promoting and he never was able to give me a clear answer. That should have tipped me off then, but I wasn't really thinking that much and my roommate had already filled out an entry so I did one too. They called both of us about 2 weeks ago I didn't answer because I didn't recognize the number, googled it and found all this stuff and was glad I didn't bother. They called me again today and I happened to answer, thankfully I had been smart enough to only put initials on the form so they start asking to speak to s blah blah, based from what I read here I just cut her off there and said we aren't interested thank you and hung up. I think thats what everyone else should do too.

Same thing as above.  I entered my name for a free trip for two to Las Vegas at an auto show (the only draw I entered), but I got a call from this number saying I won a trip for two to Orlando/Mexico/Ft. Lauderdale, for $299/person, same 2 for 1 airfare, etc.  I said no when they asked me to confirm with a credid card, and said I was safe because I initiated the call.  The lady at the auto show said "one entry per phone number, but if you have two phone numbers, feel free to enter twice", so I did, and got a call on each number with the same speech within 10 minutes of each other.  Two buddies attending the show got the same call for the Bahamas cruise.  Haha, nice try guys.

Same as all the above. Signed up for a FREE TRIP TO THE BAHAMAS, and they ended up asking me to pay $299/PER PERSON BEFORE I GOT OFF THE PHONE to reserve my trip. All the details are the same as above, but I will add thatI asked the guy WHY I HAD TO PAY FOR A FREE VACATION, and he said that there was a LUXURY TAX, so I gave the phone to my father, a TAX ACCOUNTANT FOR 37 YEARS, and he pretty much said to the guy THERE'S NO SUCH THING, and then the guy started yelling and arguing with my dad. I looked up the area code, and it's from brooklyn and queens in New York. After the discount and airfare, and everything else you have to pay for, it's the same as taking a s****y vacation, not worth the 3 DAYS you'll be at see.  If you want to cruise to the bahamas, I recommend contacting a cruise line yourselves. Point: FREE VACATION is just b***s***, it's not free.

I got this same phone call today.  Filled out a form at a bar when I was out on Saturday.  Same spiel as above.  I was apprehensive and said that I couldn't afford to pay for the $299 per person until I got paid next week and then I could only afford one of them.  They agreed to call me on Monday to complete the transaction and would allow me to only pay for one.  This made me nervous.  After looking up the cruise line, it is legit like one of the above postings said, but then again it's just not really worth the risk.  I too signed up to win a FREE vacation, not a discounted one.

I received a phone call from this phone number and received similiar details to what DT, Rob and Whitney had received.  The number called twice before I answered the call.  I signed up at a trade show for a travel package - similiar story as above.  The representative gave me the spiel and they needed my credit card in order to complete the transaction.  I said that I didn't like giving my credit card over the phone.  They argued that I was the one who initiated the call so I should feel secure in giving my credit card number.  As far as I was concerned, I did not initiate the call, since they had called me repeatedly.  I asked how I initiated the call, and they said that I had done it at the trade show, when I gave them my number - this made no sense.  Also, at the trade show, I was signing up to win a vacation, not get a discount for the vacation - very suspicious.  I'm sure that everybody who was at the trade show received a similiar phone call.If it's too good to be true, it probably is... don't fall for it.

Ya I got the same phone call from them like 9 times before I actually picked up and the same deal was offered to me after they told me that I won a Vacation to the Bahamas.  I would not trust these guys if my life depended on it.  After I told them that I don't have a major credit card to pay the $300 or so up front the conversation was kept short and there went my supposed vacation that I won...  I would recommend staying way clear of scams like this especially when they ask you to pay up front.  I can get this same deal if not better online or from my travel agent.  TOTAL SCAM I THINK.

Same deal as Whitney. More Details: Won a 8 day vaca to Fl & Bahammas. The deal sounded pretty good. Trip for 2. All meals included: 2 days in Orlando-2 days passes at Universal Studios, then a 3 day cruise to Naussau, then 2 days in Ft. Lauderdale. All begins in Orlando. You get a 2 for 1 air discount. You have 1.5 years to decide when you are going. 60 days notice before you go.Catches:1. You won a discount. You still have to pay $300/person....ahh not bad...keep talking to me.2. You have to PAY WHEN THEY CALL or you loose out!! Sorry, not this guy.Now after some research they are indeed for real and it seems to be a good deal. I think. They are a "starter" crusie line and the 3 day cruise costs ~200-250/pp. So your basically paying for that and everything else is "The big win". You decide.

These people are terrible and should be stopped.  They have called my phone and that of my husbands stating that they work for the Attorney General of New York.  They have called and said they can put us in jail.  We have never been to New York.  They don't even know the name of the Attorney General in New York.  I have called the Attorney General's number and these people do not work for them.  They have given us names of Michael Black, David Cooper, Jay Clark, & James Brown just to mention a few. They state they are officer's but when asked to provide badge ID number's they did not know what I was speaking about or they hung up on me.  Be careful.  Do not give information to these people.

I received a call today from 518-649-8082. The Eastern sounding man, claiming to be an officer with the "BCI" (Bureau of Criminal Investigation)left a voicemail informing me that he was trying to reach my wife "Angela" (who's actually my ex wife). It was borderline comical. He told me "not to even think about not departing this message to my wife", & that he would "send someone to my doorstep." He also closed with noting that if he did not hear back from me or my wife that they "will come to her work and she would end up behind the bars." He's called only once. I assume that's because I'm not the primary target, just a "reference." If he calls back, threatening to "send someone to my doorstep", before hanging up, I'll familiarize him the details of my 2nd Amendment Rights.Women out there, PLEASE do not be scared or intimidated. These guys are 2-bit wanna-be thugs. Simply hang up. No one is going to arrest, show up, or sue you. Their fatal flaw is they sound like a scam. So treat it like one. Hang up, block the number (s), & go on with your life.

They called claiming that they were special agents. They told me I would be arrested within 30 minutes if I didnt send them certain amount of money for a loan I didnt pay back. This countinued for weeks. Then one day my phone started ringing non stop. Someone was calling,hanginging up when they got voicemail and calling right back. After 4th time I answered and told them they had wrong number and not to call back. As soon as I hung up they called back. This time the guy made sexual comments and threaten me and my daughter. He called 17 times between 11:06 and 11:25.  I didnt find it funnyat all. It creeped me out to say the least.

For the past several days I have been getting calls from this number from a man that sounds like he's mid-eastern,and he too gave me the name of Jacob Matthews.He was looking for my daughter and I could not understand him and the connection was'nt clear at all.He wanted her work number as well as her cell phone number,both of which I refused to give.He accused me of being a liar that my daughter had just called him from my home,which I knew was'nt true because she does'nt live here and has her own home phone.He has harrassed her as well as me.When I told him he was a scam artist and I was'nt about to give out any information,he got highly pissed off and threatened to have me and my daughter arrested within thirty minutes.I told him to go ahead that I had already called the police to report him.He got mad and hung up on me.The FBI,Secret Service,or maybe a call or e-mail to America's Most Wanted might help and all of us that are victims because of  these people need to demand that something be done.I'm even trying to get my local news station to do a story on this.Hopefully we can get this person or persons caught if we go public.

When I receive this phone call the number that always shows up on my caller id is (416)971-2222This is the number that shows up on my caller id on my cell phone everytime these people have called me. When the Indian/Pakistan male leaves a callback number its been (518)649-8082.They have said they are from the Department of Bureau of Criminal Investigations. The last call I had the male left his name saying his name was officer Davey Jones(apparently they watch the Pirate of The Carribbean movies in India) which I thought was very odd for an Indian/Pakistan male have an American name like that.Ive researched the 518 number and have seen the same complaints. They have been calling my workplace. Im very annoyed with these people at this point.I have yet to pick up when they have called me so Ive only had voicemails. When they called my workplace my boss informed the man that she couldnt understand him and he was cutting out so she hung up on him, he then continued to call my job three times in a row.They are very rude to women on the phone. They have also been extremely rude on the voicemails they have left me. For instance one voicemail I had they guy was rude and said I was being investigated. Another voicemail the guy said I could only help myself by returning the call and showing a record that I had called back. And at the end of both voicemails they very rudely say bye then abruptly hang up. These people are absolutely ridiculous.

When i told him I would be talking with my attorney he changed the amount to $850. I told him to serve me with legal papers and he hung up. He then called me back, and offered a third amount, I told him if he called me again i would file harrassment charges against him. He hung up.

Kudos to "Sam" for giving the most intelligent and informative posts on this scam. READ, Bookmark and use as needed:http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-631-456-4041/2I have been receiving phone calls from this group since late April / early May of 2010.  There is a good chance that they also attempted to contact me roughly two years ago before I entered into Chapter 7 Bankruptcy protection, as I faintly remember hearing the same script more or less. As others have stated, the callers are difficult to understand.  Generally speaking their command of the English language is quite poor and their accents are hard to follow. At times they will get certain words or phrases mixed up.  It would be funny if it wasn't for the fact that they had:a) Your SSNb) Your home addressc) Your work addressd) Your banking infoe) Names, numbers and potentially the addresses of "references"f) A complete and total lack of ethics and a basic understanding of the FDCPA.  I have personally filed reports with the following agencies, often with limited (if any) success:Local Policemy state's Attorney General's officeFTCFBISecret ServiceGenerally the local police won't be able to help much.  The callers are using a combination of prepaid cell phones and VoIP, making them difficult to trace.  Also at their disposal are various spoofing tactics being implemented to catch people off guard - meaning the number that appears on your Caller ID isn't the number that is calling you for starters.  Without gaining a subpoena for the billing information for the numbers in question, the local police won't be able to get very far.  My state's Attorney General's office couldn't offer much assistance either.  I received a form letter in the mail that my complaint was received and I would be contacted if they needed additional info.  It was more or less the same information I obtained from the FTC.  They each advised me not to give the individuals over the phone any account information or to authorize payment.  That's just common sense, though.I never got anything from the FBI, either.  There is a good chance that since I haven't suffered a monetary loss that my concerns are low on the totem pole.  I hate to say this, but that is truly the case. Unless you were in the hole for a $1,000 (or more) you aren't going to get much more than "sorry to hear about your situation, change your phone number and move on".  I seemed to get some activity from the Secret Service.  I spoke with agent Doug Zloto. (Google him, referencing threads like these plus his name and you'll find his number also)  He seemed to care a bit more than the average person, but after giving him access to my Google Voice account, there has been no further activity from him that I'm aware of.In the meantime I changed the wireless number the fraudsters had access to, they have no direct way to get a hold of me.  (Calls at work have ceased for some reason)  That in turn resulted in my "references" getting phone calls from the crooks.  Here is a word of caution for women that have been getting these calls - don't say anything and just hang up.  The callers are quite abusive towards women callers.  Why?  Possibly the culture.  If they are Indian / Pakistani, women are second class citizens there.  You will be treated like garbage.  This happened to a family member when she was trying her best to be extremely nice over the phone.  The callers currently attempt to reach me through the female family member and an unused Google Voice number that they managed to find of mine.  I keep the Google Voice number open because, well, I can't delete it yet.  So, about every day, 4-5 times a day for the last week, I get voice messages from them.  It's usually just two full messages though - the other calls are broken up with static or they are attempts to read the script until the callers then screw up.  Really, they are that adamant on getting the script 100% that they will hang up mid-sentence and call back 30 seconds later.  At this point it's a stalemate with these people.  1) While they have the lion's share of information on us, they can't really do anything with this information.  Why?  Think about it.If they were to ever take funds out of your account without authorization, it's fraud and worse (for them) it is traceable.  That's why they won't do anything with your information, contrary to threats they make.  The money from your account has to go somewhere, and either your bank or a law enforcement agency can determine where the money was routed.  As a bank customer you are protected - you'd get the stolen money back in your account after 7-10 business days and the bank would be temporarily out the funds deducted from your account while they conducted their investigation.  The bank, along with law enforcement, would track down the fraudsters and apprehend them.  The fraudsters do not want to incur the wrath of a bank, just extort money out of you.  Remember that.    Your authorization would absolve the bank from any and all liability, leaving you holding the bag.  Never give them authorization for anything - for all you know the call is recorded.  2) We have no information on them.Seriously, this has been going on at least since 2008, possibly longer than that based on some accounts. (6 years??? Holy crap!)  You would think someone would have slipped up by now.  Sadly, they haven't.  We can continue to grow our own intel on them and compile lists of aliases and phone numbers used, along with paraphrases of scripts used in order to educate other victims.  I'm actually putting together a site now in the meantime where I'll host audio files and lists of previous numbers used.  800notes.com is great, but no two calls are exactly the same.  It would be nice to have a site dedicated to the scam and how it works. So that's where I am with these calls.  I have suffered no monetary loss, though I have been harassed both at home and at work.  They threaten me with arrest and other "fun" things in order to get me convinced I have to pay them.  My friends and family have been targeted and local and federal law enforcement agencies haven't been able to put a stop to things.  So, it is what it is.  I am out a wireless phone number I had for roughly six years, which is terrible since I was using that line when looking for a new job.  Whenever I'm bored I spoof my number using Google Voice and return the calls.  I've called them the poster children for birth control, etc.  Basically a lot of nasty things that I'm sure the moderators here wouldn't appreciate me repeating - bottom line nothing nice.  I always like to close saying their parents must be real proud knowing their sons weren't man enough to get real jobs.  That usually gets a decent response.  Way I see it - they can't do anything to me. (Despite a threat yesterday that my life would be f'ed up)  They can threaten all they want but my credit is frozen and my bank information has changed.  I've changed the only number they could really access me directly on and I've instructed my employer and family to not answer the calls.  I just call and harass them now when I find a few extra seconds.  What's the worst they can do to me?  Charge me with harassment?  Nope, then they would have to identify themselves.Oh, and don't bother contacting Cashnet USA about the calls.  Their "fraud" department could honestly care less.  Their "investigation" is merely a means of buerocratic CYA.  I would even be surprised at this point if actual law enforcement is involved in any shape, way or form at this time.  There is a good chance that the information these crooks have on us was obtained from Cashnet USA - either from a database leak or from a collector that was once authorized by Cashnet to call on delinquent customers.  The other chance is they have access to Teletrack, and pulled all of our information off of there.http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-646-274-1143/3For at least the last four years, possibly longer, a group has been calling former payday loan applicants advising them that they have defrauded a bank and are now being sued for non-payment of a loan.  The callers will claim to be calling on behalf of an attorney's office (name varies), the Dept. of Law and Investigation, ACS, or other similar combinations below:United Legal Processing DivisionMidline MarketingCrime Monitoring ServicesMonetary Crime DivisionU.S. National Bank Attorney General’s Office (usually in California)American Legal ServicesAffidavit Consolidation Services (ACS)You will be threatened with arrest, a costly trial and possibly worse.  In no shape, way or form can you be arrested for non-payment on a consumer debt.  Do not believe these threats, as they are without merit and cannot be carried out in the manner they allege.  Who are they? In the past when pressed by law enforcement for an address, the callers have provided the following information:David Morgan and AssociatesMorgan & AssociatesMorgan Associates954-727-8481 1155 Northwest 85th Street Wintergarden, Florida  33150 (Address is likely invalid)The collector's MO matches a once legit collections agency called Ellis Crosby & Associates.  Here are some links on them:http://www.budhibbs.com/collectorpages/ellis_crosby_and_associates.htmhttp://www.budhibbs.com/collectorpages/EllisCrosbyJudgment.pdfThey have been previously fined over $1.3 million for various violations.  They have been known to use phone banks in India to make their calls, which more or less coincides with the difficult to understand accent many of us detect when we are contacted.   The last time this group went by any "official" name was back in 2008:Ellis Crosby & Associates / Douglas & Morgan Associates4494 Southside Boulevard Suite #200Jacksonville Florida 32216Phone:  800-928-3536 / (904) 928-3536(Address is likely invalid)There are NUMEROUS consumer alerts out against this group of individuals:Florida:http://jacksonville.com/tu-online/stories/061107/met_176207561.shtmlKansas:  http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2010/01/ks_debt_collection.htmlColorado:  http://www.coloradoattorneygeneral.gov/press/ ... lls_likely_origRhode Island:  http://www.collectionscreditrisk.com/news/rho ... -3002135-1.htmlWest Virginia:http://www.wvago.gov/internetloanscam.cfmMissouri:On July 15th, 2010 a Public Awareness Bulletin was sent out by Missouri Information Analysis Center.  "..received reports from individuals in Ohio and Illinois reference suspicious telephone calls they received. In both instances, the callers are reporting that a voicemail is received from a man, with a Middle Eastern accent, identifying himself as an officer working with the Financial Crimes Unit.  The message indicates that the reason for the call concerns a loan made by the receiver or someone in the receiver's family. The voicemail requests that a return call be made and a telephone number is provided. When a return call is made, the caller is asked to provide personal identifying information such as their date of birth and social security number.Reports indicate that the calls are frequent and persistent and that they even threaten arrest or legal action if information or money is not provided. It appears that the individuals making these calls may have access to some records connecting individuals and their relatives.  Missouri does not have a Financial Crimes Unit and all indications are that this is a fictitious agency. If you receive a similar phone call, please be advised that it is a scam and please contact your local law enforcement agency or the Missouri Information Analysis Center at 866-362-6422."Bottom line:Do not supply the callers with any additional information.  Inform them you have reported them to law enforcement and hang up.  If you haven't already, go ahead and report the calls to local law enforcement, your state's Attorney General and beyond.  Look up the local Secret Service branch's information in your area and get in contact with an agent there.  If you ever applied for a cash advance online, your information is out there.   Possible sources for the breach of your privacy are:* The scammers obtained your information from Teletrack - a reporting agency used by many cash advance lenders to determine their risk lending to you.  The service is able to tell cash advance lenders if you have existing loans with other companies, for example.  Many state laws prohibit borrowers from having more than two cash advances out at the same time. * The scammers created their own fake payday loan application site.  People looking for a cash advance went to the site and applied, thus freely providing the scammers with their information for malicious use at a later time.  * The scammers were able to get into the database(s) of cash advance lenders - probable targets being Sonic Payday and Cashnet USA.   How to protect yourself:* Inform your employer.  You are likely getting calls at home and/or at work, so make sure your employer is aware the calls are part of a scam and to not take them seriously.  Advise the callers that they are no longer allowed to call you at work.  If they continue to call, document the date and time of the calls you received.  Save voice mails left if at all possible.  * Change your number(s).  For some this may not be an option, for others a one-time number change can be done free of charge.Be advised - any references you listed on your payday loan application will be contacted.  Let those people know that this is a scam, and they can disregard. * Use Google Voice.  Google Voice is a great replacement voice mail system for just about any phone number you use.  Messages can be transcribed and voice mail recordings can be saved as mp3 files.  Pro Tip - call the scammers with a Google Voice number before turning off your old phone numbers.  Make sure when you call you identify yourself so they can start up their script.  At any point after they have your information pulled up just hang up.  They will then start religiously calling your Google Voice number.  At this point, you are free to change your regular phone number(s) and enjoy not having these people ever call you again.  (And laugh at the fact these people are basically talking to a brick wall several times a day)The scammers change their numbers frequently.  Law enforcement used to think it was because the callers ran out of minutes on their prepaid wireless accounts or they were shuttered due to fraud, but now they understand it's simply to evade detection by savvy consumers online.  With the proliferation of VoIP, it's even easier for the crooks to stay a couple of steps ahead of law enforcement.  Below is just a sampling of the 30+ numbers that have been used in recent memory.1-201-244-77221-209-349-73821-209-797-22121-212-500-08391-213-256-04081-213-995-30391-281-763-04331-347-289-39021-347-844-68171-347-844-68311-424-354-42701-516-232-89051-516-232-89351-518-212-02191-561-300-80181-561-210-41851-626-200-46461-631-456-40411-646-274-11431-646-810-86351-650-241-46041-707-401-40561-707-633-27891-708-401-05351-716-442-28241-717-862-40801-718-705-86691-760-514-01321-760-563-53841-772-318-49381-850-201-11111-858-777-19771-859-908-22811-866-860-45091-877-226-74881-888-706-74631-888-771-92491-888-785-44791-909-327-4870So can they really do anything to you?It's not a simple yes or no answer.  Logic dictates that, if they really wanted to take you for a ride and drain your bank accounts, they already would have.  So, why haven't they?  Authorization.  Why do you think you are being called so much?  Perhaps it is because they like the sound of your voice?  No, they have to have your authorization to take any form of payment from you, period.  The callers know their audience, and that audience is typically a bunch of people that have applied for payday loans in the past.  Most of those people they call couldn't afford an attorney if they wanted one, and are so used to receiving collections calls that so long as they sound like a real collector, they will likely be perceived as one.Furthermore, they don't even really want to talk to your attorney - that just sounds official and scary enough.  A real attorney would take the callers to task and write them off as two-bit con artists.  The callers need you, in writing, to authorize payment against the fictitious debt they claim you owe.  Go ahead, ask them for proof you owe the debt - more commonly known as verification of debt.  See what they say.  A phone authorization carries very little weight, so if they have something signed by you on file, you are done for - and the callers know that.  That authorization is the only thing these callers are doing by the book, and for good reason.  If they just went all willy nilly and made an ACH debit from your checking account, without your written approval, you could in turn report the transaction as fraudulent to your financial institution.  In about 7-10 business days, you would get the funds returned to your account.  Then the scammers would be up against a bank and their team of lawyers and investigators.  Bottom line:If you haven't paid the callers a dime, don't.  If you planned on paying them to shut them up, just don't.  Remember - you are not being contacted by a legally licensed, ethically owned and operated collector.  Read up on the FDCPA - http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/credit/cre27.pdf - and know your rights.PS--The FBI sent out a Press Release on this scam just last week:Extortion Scam Related to Delinquent Payday Loans Washington, D.C. December 07, 2010  FBI National Press Office (202) 324-3691— filed under: Press Release The Internet Crime Complaint Center has received many complaints from victims of payday loan telephone collection scams. Callers claim the victim is delinquent in a payday loan and must repay the loan to avoid legal consequences. The callers purport to be representatives of the FBI, Federal Legislative Department, various law firms, or other legitimate-sounding agencies. They claim to be collecting debts for companies such as United Cash Advance, U.S. Cash Advance, U.S. Cash Net, and other Internet check-cashing services.According to complaints received from the public, the callers have accurate data about victims, including Social Security numbers, dates of birth, addresses, employer information, bank account numbers, and the names and telephone numbers of relatives and friends. How the fraudsters obtained the personal information varies, but in some cases victims have reported they completed online applications for other loans or credit cards before the calls started. The fraudsters relentlessly call the victim’s home, cell phone, and place of employment. They refuse to provide any details about the alleged payday loans and become abusive when questioned. The callers have threatened victims with legal actions, arrests, and, in some cases, physical violence if they do not pay. In many cases, the callers harass victims’ relatives, friends, and employers. Some fraudsters have instructed victims to fax a statement agreeing to pay a certain amount, on a specific date, via a pre-paid Visa card. The statement further declares the victim will never dispute the debt. If you receive these calls, do not follow the caller’s instructions. Rather, you should:Notify your banking institutions. Contact the three major credit bureaus and request an alert be put on your file. Contact your local law enforcement agencies if you feel you are in immediate danger. File a complaint at www.IC3.gov. Tips to avoid becoming a victim of this scam:Never give your Social Security number—or personal information of any kind—over the telephone or online unless you initiate the contact. Be suspicious of any e-mail with urgent requests for personal financial information. The e-mail may include upsetting or exciting but false statements to get you to react immediately. Avoid filling out forms in e-mail messages that request personal information. Ensure that your browser is up-to-date and security patches have been applied. Check your bank, credit, and debit card statements regularly to make sure that there are no unauthorized transactions. If anything looks suspicious, contact your bank and all card issuers. When you contact companies, use numbers provided on the back of cards or statements http://www.fbi.gov/news/pressrel/press-releases/paydayloanscam_120710
