    Consumer Alert: Attorney General warns Kansans of debt collection scamJanuary 29, 2010 -- Attorney General Steve Six is cautioning Kansas consumers about telephone calls from apparent fake debt collectors who are impersonating law enforcement officers in an effort to extort money from consumers.   Consumers are warned to not submit payments to these fraudulent debt collectors.When calling, the scammers most often state they are attempting to collect a debt related to an internet payday loan obtained by the consumer, but which the consumer never repaid.  Consumers state they have never obtained such a loan or paid off the loan years ago.  The scam artists have most recently identified themselves as ACS, National Affidavit Processing Department and United Financial Crime Division, but may use additional phony names.  It appears the phone numbers used by the scammers are “spoofed” numbers, so that the number appearing on a consumer’s caller ID is not the actual number of where the call originated. 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.

UPSET!!!!!
    My husband, as well as myself recieved a harrasing phone call from a indian guy first named robert smith, and then adam scott! They said my name was given as a reference from something my mom did online and needed to get a hold of her. They said they were from crimes and investigation in NY, and she was going to be cgarged for fraud for an unpaid debt. She called and he gave her a case # and said I told them she has done a lot of fraudulant acts in the past! This was a complete lie, and then she asked for his address and a manager and he wouldn't give it! All he kept saying was what her attorny's name was, and she doesn't have an attorny, nor does she have any idea of what this was all about! Then he told her he was procedding with the case and we were both going to JAIL!!!!! Then, he hung up on her!!!! And everytime we call back the same person picks up, switching the name back and forth and asking for your name and info. When you ask for their info, they get very angry and state they have to have our name first, and then hang up!!! My mom was so upset that she almost didn't make it to work!Caller: crimes and investigation

pissdoff
    This jerk called me and then my sister about an investigation that was being done on us. He harassed my sister at her job, he asked her for her ssn and offered a 4 digit case number. What a joke! He said his name was Adam Scott and that he was with the national bureau of crimes. I researched that and there is no such thing. he comes out of Batavia, N.Y. and obviously has nothing better to do with his pathetic life! Do not give him any info at all!!!!Caller: national bureau of crimes

    A man by the name of Jack Wolf called me and stated that he was a officer and that he had a warrant for my arrest. He told me that it was for some type of fraud that I had commited. He asked me if I wanted to settle out of court, and of course I said yes. He told me all of the info and than demanded that I send him 800 dollars immediately. I than spoke to my own police officers who are in my family and they assured me that there were no warrants for my arrest in any state. This was very traumatic for me, because I am a teacher, and I have a clean record. After further investigating myself, I found out that this was a scam. Please be very careful and do not give any information.
