FRAUD!!!!

I got the same call today from a 818 666 5826 number out in Sherman Oaks CA. I live in Georgia. This bastard had a heavy indian accent and they had my info. I believe they retrieved it when I was applying for payday loans over the internet. I put in a cyber criminal report with the ICC and the FTC. What else should I do? I called them back and told them to stop calling my number that I know it's a scam. I'm glad I found these articles because now I know I'm not the only one this has happened to and that this is all a scam. He tried to get me for $498 claiming I was being arrested for fraud.

I have also received several calls from these non-Financial Crime Investigator claiming I had taken out a payday loan advising me the loan is $400 and I can settle for only $200 to close the account. I had advise them to give me the name of the payday loan lender they said the name of the payday loan lender was PaydayAdvance AAA I said when was this loan taken out and on what date and when was this deposit into my account they could not give me that information. I told them I have never taken out this loan with this lender. And yes they all have an East Indian accent. I have stop answering my phone when I see any of the numbers listed below and yes they do have your information like SS, Work number and they call all day long give me a break they change phone number like night and day so here is a list of these Non-Financial Crime Investigator that have been calling me. Jake Williams 410-834-278, Officer Dennis 919-665-5495, Bob Hewett 410-834-2878, Williams Jacobs 919-665-5495, Daren Martin 707-897-3034 also claim lawyer name is Jennifer Rose, Don Williams 215-531-5065, Kevin William 215-531-5065. I'm wishing very hard if the FBI and Anti-Fraud Unite are working on this I hope they can stop the madness cause this bank bank is crazy.

FRAUD!!!!

i recieved a call this morning claiming I fraudently used check account with my e-mail address. In addition, that they was going to sue me for fraud. Then the first rep supposedly transfered me to the attorney of the business location. man introduces himself with thick Indian accent. The first thing the person says is "If I am aware of any lawsuit against me?" I said no! Afterwards said he would explain and asked me not to interupt until he was finished explaining the afidavit in front of him. The person said to me they are placing 3 charges against me for fraud with my checking account ... he continued with saying that I made fake payment with my email account [email protected] ... The person speaking then requested that I provide some personal information (I am sorry but I not sure what was asked) but I became so irate I interupted the person and explained irately that I have no idea what he is talking about and do not harrass me any further. while i was speaking to the person they were attempting to interupt be I continued to say I did not wish to discuss anything with them ... and then they hung up during the dispute. This really depressed and disturbed me because I am a former victim of idenity theft by a past associate of mine. In addition, who ever it was has access to my address and my social security number. please help and advise as I am severly distraught after this call. the number the person called from is 415-236-1921 and the caller ID says Inverness CA. I attempted a return call to see if I can get an operator to request they do not call my line anymore but the calls rings and then goes to a voicemail saying " fowarding to an extension" I re-attempted to call the number again while typing this mail and someone answered with a thick Indian accent and saying Financial Crime Investagation Burea, I asked the persone where they are located and they said San Fransisco California, then I asked who I am speaking with and the person said No! ... this is obviously a scam and I am seriously concerned due to these people have access to my information. Name, address, and Social Security Numer ... please assist and advise ...

I just got a call from a John Marsh @ the following number: 347-637-6459. It came thru my phone as 0000. I don't know how this person got my phone number or the last 4 digits of my SS #. I tried to call back and the line was totally dead and then it rang as busy. I don't know who these people are or why they are calling me, and I am going to contact the BBB.

I have gotten calls from a guy stating he's officer Daniel Jones with a very thick accent. He says he is from Financial Criminal Bureau. I tried calling the number back but I don't get an answer but what scares me is that he is calling my job number which doesn't have a caller id. I have contacted an attorney. This is horrible!

FRAUD!!!!

I got a call from 210-324-0401 from a Bruce Jones of the Financial Crimes Investigations Department. This call came through on my voice message machine on a Friday morning stating that there was a lawsuit filed in my name over a payment of $435.00 that was due over a bogus payday loan scam over the internet. He spoke very fast with a VERY thick Indian/Middle Eastern accent. He told me that if this payment was not taken as of today there will be a criminal charge against me regarding this. I have filed several complaints about this company's practices through the Better Business Bureau, the and Federal Bureau of Investigation(the FBI), and the Federal Trade Commission over the payday loan over the internet that I NEVER received nor NEVER gotten. The same person also goes by several alias names including Sean Mars, David Cooper, John Fernandez, Bob Golden, (under different phone numbers like 347-826-4106 and 330-989-2846)
Andy Fletcher. I was told by the FTC that if these persons call you again, DO NOT ANSWER BACK TO THEM! DO NOT CONTACT THEM OVER THE PHONE! THESE PEOPLE ARE INTERNATIONAL SCAMMERS WHO ARE WANTED BY THE FBI AND OTHER FEDERAL AGENCIES. DO NOT CALL THEM! FYI: If you get a call from either a Andy Fletcher or a David Jones, or even a Bruce Jones...DON'T CALL THEM! THEY'RE SCAMMERS!

FRAUD!!!!

For the past several days my fiance and I have been getting calls from a "John Smith" with a thick eastern accent who stated he was from the Financial Crime Investigation Bureau. If we don't answer the phone he leaves an over 3 minute long voicemail threatening that if we do not get back to him or have our attorney contact him he "feels sorry for what will happen to us" and that it is an "urgent financial and criminal matter."
When I answered the phone and he would ask for my fiance I would try to get his name/company/other information, which he told me he could not give because it was a private matter with the person he was trying to reach.
Finally we go along with it, and are told to call back the same number, 818-806-3661 and talk to his attorney Will Hernandez, who also has a thick eastern accent and sounded suspiciously like the person we were just on the phone with. They have my fiance's social security number, and told him that if he does no-t give him our attorney's information that Monday (the following business day) our case would be sent to court. So far the only phone number that comes up for them is this 818-806-3661 with a private name. If this continues or we get any additional information I will add it to this comment.

Thank you all for these posts. Iam beside myself !! I tried to return a call to a Charles Mcdaniel. Phone# 818 806 3361 whom left me a hard to understand voicemail. He said to call him back immediately or have my attorney do it and if I don't call back and take the message seriously then "good luck". He never told me what company or what this matter was regarding. I call back and a "Brian O'Connor" answers and says Charles is unavailable. This Brian O'Connor had a thick accent and tried to get me to answer some questions.. Says I have 3 strikes against me and that his "client" gave put money into my bank account and I haven't paid them back. If I wish to fight in court against his clients I face paying over 800$ in fees and will loose my job. He was also kind enough to threaten me with the cops. Said he's sending the cops to arrest me in the morning to show up in court blah blah.. I'm located in Nevada. Brian is supposedly in Linden California 90028. His PO BOX is 32453 Oh and he is the supervisor - Charles is his junior assistant. Company = Financial Crime Investigation Bureau.
I hope this information is helpful. If there's further questions in my experience with these monsters feel free to email me. [email protected]

FRAUD!!!!

I just started getting calls from The Department of Finance Investigations, at least so they claim to be..The man that called me has a Indian accent and says his name is Michael Johns, as if that's even believable. He's been calling from a Queens, NY number 347-827-3814. The first time he called I could barely hear him, there was so much noise in the background and his accent didn't help either. When I asked to call him back because I couldn't hear him he got very pushy with me and asked if I don't care about my ssn. Right there that's when a red flag went up, why would some call me like that, I thought Homeland Security deals with SSN. I told the man I would call him back, he insisted on knowing when I gave him a time but never called back. Instead I got on the Internet and did some research and found a similar situation to mines. I'm definitely reporting this guy.

I also got a call from these people telling me they had all of this information and the company brining charges is personal payday advance which runs over 300 websites but he could not tell me which website i used to secure a loan. I then explained i had to close my bank account due to random sites taking application fees which totaled to more then any loan I have recieved so i needed help and tried to get a loan and now I am further behind then when I started. The number he called from was 718-989-9381

HI. I have been getting several calls from these people. They change the company they are calling for and use different numbers. So far the numbers area 818-698-7064, 714-733-5618, 951-489-0223, & 215-909-6058. The companies are American Payday, USA Fast Cash International, Financial Crimes Investigation Department, and Cash Advance USA. The calls started last week, approximately a month after I had looked into but didn't take a payday loan. They all have very thick Indian accents and start off very threatening. They rattled off all of my info and really had me scared until i did further research invovling my bank, my local police department, and the internet. These people are a real piece of work. I found out they don't like it when people repeatedly call them back and harrass them which is what I did. They have blocked my number on all four of the lines they call me from but I'm sure they will call me from a new number tomorrow. My husband and I have had to open a new bank account and I have had to contact the 3 major credit bureaus and put locks on my credit reports and sctivities. What a real pain! If anyone happens to get anywhere with finding these scam artists and can get them prosecuted please let me know cause I'm in! Shalon [email protected]

it is a scam...do not confirm anything with these people. even if you owe a debt you can not be arrested for not paying. these folks have been know to go into your bank account and pull out everything in it. dont panic. they are a fraud. check the FTC and FBI website for more information. I have too been receiving these calls for almost a year now and they never stop. They will call from many different numbers as well. As soon as you ask them to verify the debt in question they get mad and yell at you or hang up and thats because they cant verify it. It is a law that they have to prove that you owe.

I was just contacted by these people. number 315-370-8755 saying they were going to file charges against me for an unpaid Pay Day Loan. When I challenged them about it they said it was from CashNet USA for $300 but they would make it all go away for $175. I informed them that Pay Day loans are illegal in Arizona, he passed me to his supervisor who just re-iterated the threats. I was told their lawyer would call me back within 2 - 3 hours. All of the people I spoke to were Indians. When I asked who the president of the company was I was told John Elliot but that I could not speak to him. DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THESE SCAMMERS!!! Report them to your Attorney General, and state and local authorities.
