I just received an very threating call from this supposedly legal firm, stating I own 1253.49 to CNG Enterprises and because I didn't reply to the letter that was sent to an address that I hadn't lived at in over 5 yrs. Compliance Officer Anthony Battelli stated, I would be convicted of a Class 1 Felony and that I had until 3pm EST to make the payment or the papers would be filed in court. He was yelling at me and then he hung up on me, when I called the number back he said it was too late that I was going to be visited by the sheriff's department or I would be running and hiding for the remainder of my life, when I tried to get information from him, he became irrate and threatening and hung up again. I called back to get more information and then he said that he was going to have the attorney file harrassment charges on top of the Class 1 felony and hung up. I did a reverse phone number look up and the number 716-244-6554, isn't even that of a business nor is it in the city of NY, as he claims. I called the law firm that comes up when googled and they have received several other calls regarding this company and individual, and stated they don't know this person nor is the company affiliated with the law firm.
What type of company is this really..sounds like a bad collection company or scammers??

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the pay off amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
