It appears the calls in question may be originating from outside the United States.When questioned, the individual calling refuses to disclose the full name or address of the collection agency they claim to represent.  These scammers have been able to provide consumers with identifying information, such as the consumer’s social security number, home address, e-mail address, names of family members and the consumer’s computer IP address.  Since the callers are able to provide valid personal information, consumers may become confused and believe they are being contacted in regard to a legitimate debt.If the initial debt collection scam is unsuccessful, consumers have been re-contacted months later with the scammers posing as law enforcement officers or officers of the court.  Typically, the consumer is threatened with arrest for fraud or some other fictitious crime unless the consumer agrees to immediately wire money via Western Union.  The fictitious officers strive to frighten and confuse consumers into compliance by using legal sounding terms such as “We’re filing an affidavit against you” or by stating a lawsuit has been or is in the process of being filed against the consumer.A hallmark of each scam has been calling consumers repeatedly at their place of employment.  This scam hit home when an employee of the Kansas Attorney General’s Office was repeatedly called both on her cell phone and at work.  Despite the employee’s repeated verbal disputes, the caller refused to provide any identifying information to allow her to send a written dispute. The scammer also continued to call her numerous times a day regarding a payday loan she denied obtaining. Two months later, she was again contacted by telephone by an individual identifying himself as an “officer”. “I denied owing the debt and refused to pay without being provided validation of the debt. I was then told, ‘If that’s the case, I will have local law enforcement come to your place of business and drag you out kicking and screaming’,” stated the employee.“It is important for consumers to know their rights under the law,” Attorney General Six said. “If a consumer is receiving calls from a debt collection company and believe it is a scam, I encourage them to contact our office immediately.”Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), collectors are required to send consumers a written notice within five days of the initial contact.  The notification should contain  information such as the amount of the debt, the name of the creditor to whom the debt is owed and a statement informing the consumer they have thirty days to contact the debtor in writing to dispute the debt or request validation of the debt. In addition, legitimate debt collectors are prohibited by the FDCPA from making false or misleading representations, such as the consumer has committed a crime, implying nonpayment will result in the consumer’s arrest, or using the threat of violence.More information is available on the Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/credit/cre27.pdf.

    I was also contacted by this Jason McKenzie, bea c, yesterday July 13, 2010.  He said he was from the law firm of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher - told me I borrowed money from an online cash advance company.  Said the case was already in the court and if I didn't call back or pay back then "good luck with what happens to you".  I tried to get him to fax me information on the loan and he could not do it - I called the "so called company" and got some other Middle Eastern gentleman saying he couldn't fax me any information either and to call this lawyer's office that had just called, he was very rude and hung up on me.  They were both very rude - They had my bank routing #'s  but the checking account # did not exist with the bank - they even had my SS #.   I also received another called today July 14, 2010 for the same reason.  Didn't answer it and all calls have been at least 3 times each day.  I sure would like to know who to report this to.Caller: Gibson, Dunn & CrutcherCall Type: Debt Collector

    I have been contacted by this ph. # and the individual said his name was Jason McKenzie. He said he was working with the Law firm Gibson,Dunn & Crutcher. I was unable to understand much of what he said due to a heavy accent, Indian or Middle Eastern? He was very rude and hung up on me when I pressed him for more information. He said he was calling to advise me of legal action that was going to be taken against me for a payday on-line loan I had taken out and not paid. I have been paying the loan, I have proof on my statements. He was unable to give me a date or the amount of the Loan(s) I took out or the name of the companies. I have been harrassed by these individuals and some other  heavy foreign accented people. I contacted the Law firm of Gibson... and they have no knowledge of this company and want me to give them all the information I have on this matter. I called one of the on-line payday companies and the lady who I spoke with told me that she has heard that this is happening and to google all the ph. #'s and this is why I am responding to this!

    I have recieved several calls from these people saying that i was used as a reference and that if i don't get the person to pay their bill i will be taken to court. I have turned these people in to my local law enforcement agency and i have also turned them in to the Federal Trade Commisson. I told them the last time that they called that i turned them in and to please stop calling me. We'll see how that goes.

    I recieved this call today from the same guy of foreing accent telling me I am in trouble and need to call him back right now. Well this is the same guy who called from a different number quite a few times. I contacted the Sheriff and was told that this is a scam and to ignore it, these people are just out to steal from me as well as you. Do not be fooled, if you or I was in trouble with the Goverment then I believe the local Law inforcement would be the first to know.

    Gibson Dunn is a very reputable law firm but they are not the same firm that these people are representing themselves as. I have contacted the firm as well and the LA office does not have the exchange 213-260 which calls and they give you as a direct number.. There is also NO ONE at the LA office by the names given. I have been contacted by this company and a previous one. The only good news is that the person I spoke with at Gibson Dunn indicated their lawyers are aware that they are being misrepresented and are working on stopping it.
