has anybody heard of this company? i got a call from some lady saying that she will be showing up to my house to give me some papers she did call from a 619 area code # (which is where i live) however i tried to call the # back and i get a "this number is disconnected"
also in her v/m she says to get info to call this number 1-877-256-4508 with some case number.
i called and spoke with some guy named marshall, he said it was for some bad checks for a payday loan, then i said i cannot confirm nor deny what he is talking about and i need something in writing. he asked if an address was correct (which is my old one) and i said no, that i will be sending him a letter to confirm the debt via cert mail and to reply to a po box i will get now. i asked who the lady was and if they are sending somebody to my house, he said "i dont know, we are in new york, not CA" he couldnt even confirm if they faxed paperwork to somebody to serve me some papers. should i be worried? i dont know what to do

Sub: #1 900 Pages of Complaints Recorded by the Federal Trade CommissionMon, 06/18/2012 - 17:58



Some dude created a blog on Word Press to upload a PDF document of complaints against International Asset Group recorded by the Federal Trade Commission they received in response to a Freedom of Information Act Request.

Click here to load the complaints recorded by the Federal Trade Commission against International Asset Group, LLC. Its nearly 900 pages and takes at least a few minutes to load. Worth reading though as there it illustrates a nationwide pattern of deceit and illegal activity. This document should be circulated and posted all over the Internet.

I have received calls from International Asset Group, making the same threats. I called my DA office regarding the bad check claim. They said that if I never wrote a check, they couldnt collect. All I did was authorize repeated ach withdrawals. After I had paid what I felt was over and beyond what I should have, I closed the bank account. They are bottom feeders who are just using scare tactics. I told them to send whatever paperwork they had to the address on file and hung up on them.

Sub: #4 This group has called several times on my mom's cell phone. FinaTue, 02/21/2012 - 22:10



This group has called several times on my mom's cell phone. Finally today she got the nerve to pick it up just to tell them to stop calling her phone. She told them she didn't owe anything but they told her that there was there was something unpaid for from best buy. My dad (her ex husband) had bought a tv there in 2008. She doesn't own the item and he has it with him since they divorced in 2009. They still wanted her to pay for half of the payment even though it says in her divorce decree that she only has to pay for her own bills. She only has one credit card and has been paying it back. They are saying she needs to pay for half of it because her name is on the card with his. Is this right or legal? They were yelling at her and said they would take her to court if she doesn't pay and they were going to send out papers in a week. Has anyone here ever been served by this company? Any advice would be nice... we'd like to be prepared.

get off the highorse voice.this forum exists and has grown since it's 2006 inception is because when people are first contacted by a bottomfeeder they are scared.that is why they call it a "scare tactic".now every tenured member helps because we were there at one time and used info gleened from the members who preceded us.that is what this forum is about.sharing info based on our experiences with these bottomfeeders.the info was good,but you can keep the attitude voice.got it?good.

This is what I don't understand...all of you used the power of internet to find this forum, register to post and then wait for someone to respond....this is 2012 people!!! GOOGLE it!!! Not to be harsh, but honestly this battle between collection agencies and consumers has been going on forever. If it doesn't seem right then it probably isn't. There is no debtors prison. No collector can lock you up for a past due bill. There are laws for everything. Especially collections. And there are all types of collections and individual laws to go with them (1st party, 3rd party, purchased, etc). The only ones that can sue you are the ones that own the debt. If they tell you they are going to sue you then by law they have to follow through with it. No one can can take your house, car, TV, furniture, etc because you have a bad credit card debt. No collector can show up to your house or employer to serve you "papers". Think about it...do you know anyone personally that has had that actually done to them??? NO, because it can't happen. A collector can not call you before 8am or after 9pm in your time zone. If they call outside of that time frame its a violation of FDCPA. They can call you at work. If you tell them that you do not want to receive calls at work, not until then do they need to remove the number. If they call after you have told them that then they are violating the FDCPA. I could go on and on but I would be here for a month listing everything. Bottom line...collections is governed by FDCPA and state laws. If you feel that something isn't right then call the Attorney General and file a complaint..it's free!! And really, don't waste your time filing a complaint with the BBB as most agencies are not BBB accredited. But if they are feel free to complain to them as well...that's free too!!! Oh and let's not forget the other bottom feeders (on the other end of the spectrum)...Attorneys that specifically target collection agencies...its a quick easy buck for them and they are growing in size just as fast as the collection agencies are. I'm sure they offer free consultations.

Sub: #7 Also getting calls from IAG via PCS currier Mike ReynoldsTue, 12/06/2011 - 19:13



So, I am getting calls from this company now! Mike Reynolds left me a message on my voicemail today that he would be in my area in the next couple of days and I would need to give him two forms of ID. He also stated that he may serve me at my home or work and if it is at my work that a Supervisor would have to sign as a witness! I used to work in collections and although that was a long time ago, I KNOW for a fact that the message he left me was in violation of FDCPA. I am not completely sure about needing a Supervisor there to be a witness, but I would think that would also be in violation of FDCPA. Has anyone else been told this by these guys? Also, he gave me a different # for IAG. The # he gave me was 888-302-5835. He didn't tell me the name of the company but I called it and that is how I found out the name of these crooks! I would like more information as to how I can file complaints against this company. Any help will be GREATLY appreciated!
