FYI never call the numbers provided in any text if you are not certain of the number; while I lived in Arizona there was a similar scam and if you called from a cell phone or land line phone you would get looped through a series of phone operators and at the end of the month you will get a nice $500.00 plus billed to your phone.

I received a call from 760-483-3761, threatening me with jail and charges of fraud and stolen money. I demanded to know who he was, what company, what complaint, what date. He said he didn't know all the information. I kept at him with questions, very indignantly, and he hung up on me finally. I called back, no answer. Of course. I had never had this happen before, and it was startling, but I knew I did not have this outstanding loan/amount to be paid.

It is a scam they just call you to get access to your number and solicit it out to others with the same scam efforts. It puts your name and number out there along with any other information that you may have entered on the web if any. They also do "cold calling" (telephone book listed numbers).  I know all of this because it happened to me. Everyone on this site is correct and if you do the things mentioned they don't call back or hang up immediately. Be forwarned though. To stop all of the calls you may have to change your phone number because they just gave your number to others like them

These guys are jerks.  I had surgery today and they phoned my cell and said their were criminal charges pressing with the U.S. State Department, via U.S. Attorney Office.  When he gave me the number to call to get information from this Kevin Peterson, he asked if I had any idea what my criminal record looked like. I responded why can't you  transfer me to Kevin you're calling on the same number you gave me to dial.  At first I paniced because I'm still under sedation; however I'm blessed to have an attorney in the family who gave me valuable information.  Simple - if anyone ever calls threatening you like that - tell them to put it in writing and advise the court information pending so that you can give it to your attorney.  It's like pouring holy water on a vampire.  Something MUST be done to stop them.  It's rude, inscrutible and absolutely a SCAM.  There are certain words that collectors must use when calling a potential debtor; such as identifying themselves, the company they work for and their ID.  Most will only give an alias; however it helps because when you question them like a collector they HANG UP.  Got enough info to forward to the authorities. Another tidbit, find a good trustworthy Private Investigator; they can run your credit and tell you if there's anything pending there and a background check which would divulge any potential misfilings or errors.  They're a good source of information in maintaining your identity safely instead of these *&*)#@ trying to steal it. Sometimes online searches are not up to date.  Just FYI. There are two reports, one that this is a landline and another saying it's a cell but Imperial Valley is the same domain.  Let's say we all file complaints and go to the news.It's saddens me that this is what the world has turned into.

I agree.  There is a way to catch them; I've done it before. Their mothers may have been ones that show them how to do it.  I had one "mother" of five children prosecuted for the second time for 4 counts forgery and identity theft, performed on her computer.  The children were removed and placed with their father. By the way her first account was Embezzlement from a Bank on the eastern shore.  If we start inundating the FTC, etc., with this consistent information perhaps they'll move a bit faster than in the past. We may also consider contacting our local Senate or Congressman's offices.  It's an election year.  Let's give 'em a boost.

Yesterday I got a call from these a....holes. Saying the same thing as they said to you. They called me again today. I called them back threatening them with every legal action I could and was going to report them to every agency I could and the guy hung up on me. The voice mail message sounds like a computer voice but when I called back a different sounding foreigner answered. They do not answer like a business would answer. I feel so bad for unsuspecting people who give these people money. I talked to a friend of mine who said her elderly friend was getting these calls and they bilked her out of over $7,000.  It is messed up that the state of CA (where the calls are coming from) cannot stop these people. They shouldn't be allowed to even have a phone number. Something has got to be done. I suggest everyone write to the Attorney General in CA and in the state you live in. Also call the FBI who has a task force for these complaints. The only way to stop them is to unite and do something about it. I am tired of being harassed by imbeciles who think I'm stupid. My husband is a retired cop who then became an attorney. If I get one more call from them I am going to have him call as my attorney and he happens to be a prosecuting attorney. These calls are most likely coming from overseas but they are using a US number. There should be a law against that in general. This crap has got to stop. What if they contact a person with a heart condition and give them a heart attack. I was so upset when I called them back I almost sent myself into an asthma attack. In these trying times and people hurting for money who have to sometimes resort to pay day loans not only have to pay high interest which in itself should be illegal they have deal with a.....holes getting a hold of their information and being harassed. I am going to a letter to every agency I can think of and report this b*****ds. They must make their mothers awfully proud.

Just let him know the next time they call you are aware this is an extortion scam and have reported them to the FBI, FTC, the police and hang up. Phantom Debt Collectors From India Harass Americans, Demand MoneyBy BRIAN ROSS (@brianross) , CINDY GALLI and MATTHEW MOSK (@mattmosk) June 7, 2012 Hundreds of thousands of cash-strapped Americans have been targeted by abusive debt collectors operating out of overseas call centers suspected of links to organized crime in India, law enforcement officials told ABC News.The calls are part of a massive scam, one that appears to target struggling Americans -- especially those who have gone online to apply for payday loans. Armed with personal information from those pilfered applications, the threatening callers, who claim to be debt collectors poised to initiate legal action, have managed to pry loose millions of dollars from their victims -- even when the victims never owed money in the first place."This is what we call a phantom debt collection scam," said Jon Leibowitz, the chairman of the Federal Trade Commission. "It's a very pernicious and innovative new fraud."Working through call centers in India, the commission estimates that the criminals have dialed at least 2.5 million calls, persuading already cash-strapped victims to send them more than $5 million. Some have reported receiving dozens of calls per hour. They are victims like Cindy Gervais, of New Orleans, who went online for a quick loan when her husband's car was hit by a driver who didn't have insurance.Even though she paid the loan off, the so-called "phantom" debt collectors with Indian accents began calling to say she still owed money.He more or less told me that if I didn't pay, they were going to have someone on my doorstep to arrest me," she told ABC News. "And that they were going to contact my place of business, and tell them what kind of person I am."At first, she said she resisted. Then the calls became more frequent, and started to ring on her cell phone, and at the grocery distribution company where she had worked for 27 years."I was more or less was in panic mode because he told me there would be someone before noon at my place of business to arrest me and take me to jail," she said tearfully. "So I agreed to pay him."After receiving scores of complaints, investigators with the FTC said they began tracking the calls, and following the payments. They alleged the payments led them to a California company run by an Indian-American named Kirit Patel, and that such scams would not be possible without American front men."I would say that all roads of this scam, or many of the roads of this scam, lead back to Mr. Patel," said the FTC's Leibowitz.ABC News tracked Patel for weeks, from the suburbs of San Francisco to Austin, Texas.Patel refused to talk. But his lawyer, Mark Ellis, said he believes it is far too early to pass judgment on his client. Ellis, a Sacramento-based attorney, told ABC News that Patel was hired for a nominal fee to set up an American shell company, and had no idea what the call centers in India were doing."I can tell you, he was as snookered by the people in India as anybody," Ellis said. "He's a 69-year-old man who is nearing his retirement who thought all he had to do was set up some corporations and everything was on the up and up. He's completely dismayed that he has become the lightning rod of this entire problem."A close friend of Patel's also defended him in a brief interview at his home, saying Patel was not trying to defraud anyone -- he was just an unwitting, bit player in a larger scheme."If Mr. Patel was just a cog in the wheel he seems to have been a pretty big cog," Leibowitz said. "It is clear that Patel was integrally involved with this scam." Leibowitz points to thousands of pages of financial and phone records gathered by the FTC and filed as part of a civil case brought against him in the U.S. District Court in Sacramento last month. When FTC lawyers sought to freeze his assets and prevent his business from continuing to operate, Patel responded by invoking his rights against self-incrimination. His lawyer told ABC News he has had to be careful in how he responds to the allegations in civil court "because there is a potential criminal action," but that Patel maintains the allegations against him are false. Federal investigators said the phantom debt collection operation that allegedly benefitted from Patel's assistance was one of several that all trace back to the same small town in Western India called Ahmedabad. Callers use technology to make it appear that the calls originate inside the U.S. Victims provided ABC News with recordings of dozens of the calls, and many of the thickly accented callers appear to be reading off a script. "Subpoenas have been readied, and Monday morning you're going to be picked up from your home," one caller says on a victim's voicemail. "And you have children. Don't worry about your children. We have a childcare department to take care of the children." "You will be behind bars for six months," said another caller. "And once you go behind bars, you will lose your job. Once you are behind the bars, you won't get a single drop of water." William Peerce Howard, a Tampa attorney who represents victims of harassment from debt collectors, said it takes an especially twisted criminal to use threats and coercion to pry money from someone who is already struggling financially "These guys really are the most visible villains in America today," he said. "They make a living scaring people."Mark Merola, of Florida, said he just panicked when the caller told him he might be arrested at the deli where he works in a Florida retirement community. "I was nervous. I didn't want to embarrass myself, my family," he said. He used his debit card to pay the collector $576. Afterwards, he says he realized "how stupid I was." "It just happened so fast," he said. "I got scared." Leibowitz said he hopes with more attention, future potential targets of the scam will recognize red flags before they turn over any money. If callers say they are from the police, consumers should know that law enforcement officers do not collect debt for private parties. If the caller is speaking with a thick Indian accent, but calls themselves by a names such as Officer Mike Johnson, that should be a tip off. And if they're calling 40 times in two hours, that's another red flag. "Legitimate debt collectors, legitimate pay day lenders don't do those sorts of things," he said. Merola said he would like to see anyone involved in the scam prosecuted aggressively. "There's no place in society for these people," he said. http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/phantom-debt-co ... 16512428&page=2

O and by the way, if you have 9.95 you can discover who owns the phone number on a reverse phone number website. The only information I have is the Phone Carrier which is Nextel Communications Inc. and the location, Imperial CA. I hope this helps and Wayne keep your identity protected. Moving to Arizona was the biggest mistake of my life. This place is rampant with identity theft.

I have confirmed these jerkoffs to be fraudulent telemarketing scamsters. I as well, have recieved calls on my cell phone as well as at my work on multiple occasions usually week or so before my pay period is to conclude. Obviously Middle Eastern and repeating the statement, "You have 3 felony related charges reguarding bank fraud." I asked him over and over what this was about, what bank was claiming I had committed fraud and what his law firm number was. He danced around for a bit and then proceeded to say the last four digits of my social. I cursed him out and told him to cease in calling my place of work. His response was, "I will only stop calling your work if you take down my number(760 483 3761) and call me back on your cell phone. I called the number back, no one answered and it went to a digital sounding answer machine. These POS people have ripped me off 2 to 4 hundred dollars. I suggest what the others have said to do. Tell him you are recording the conversation and that you are heading to police station to report him. I only hope these a***oles don't succeed in stealing your hard earned money or your identity.

Just got one, they called my house and cell number. Threatened me with court action and sherrifs arrest, but this is really weird, because they did not ask for money. Just asked me of I was aware of the charges against me, the same as all of you guys, and repeated them. This Kevin Peterson guy asked if I had any questions, I did not at the time and he said "ok", and hung up. I called back about 2 minutes later to ask a couple that I thought about, and no answer, it went to a digital type ringer. Man was definately middle eastern, sounded like he was in a clearing house or a phone center. Is there any body that has found this complaint a legitiment operation?

This is true. They are retrieving this info from web requests that have been put out there. I recently had to do a project for school and gave all bogus information except my real telephone number. I logged the sites where I entered in the info and they gave me all this bogus information back. It is a scam of sorts and they give you another number to call (916-238-8478) and this links you to another number as if they are hanging up but it registers your number and puts it on a solicitation simular to the sites your gave your information to. Sad but true once YOU put YOUR PERSONAL information on the web it is free for all so beware!

Caller ID showed DirecTV.  Picked up and got an offer for 2 for 1... HBO and CineMax. This was a usual offering from DTV so I said "sure", and they said it would be turned on 24 to 48 hours.  Well, thank goodness I didn't give any personal info out.  For some reason, my alarm bell went off later in the day.  Called DTV and asked about the phone call, and they said no one called my home today.  I tried calling this 917 number back and all I got was, "someone will be with you in a moment", then...nothing.  I called DTV back and reported this # to them, and they said they would investigate.
