Received several calls from 855-803-1229
claiming they are URG and that if I didn't pay $ 500 today for
a purported previous debt that I would be served
papers for a court date. They provided me with a case
number and everything....funny thing is my brother works
in the courts and I called him and had him check the
case number...IT WAS ALL A LIE ! I called the number
(855) 803-1229 and spoke with a Mr. Harrison, he told me
that I must pay the $ 500 today , I asked him if I could mail the
payment...he said "NO" I asked him if I could send moneygram
or western Union,,,he said "NO" only on my credit card or debit card.
"I told him that I DO NOT OWE any creditors and it seems very
funny that he cannot give any information about the debt that he wants me
to pay him $ 500 for and they will not accept western union or moneygram
seems suspicious and illegal, some form of fraud...he hung up.
I called back and spoke with mr harrison again and requested their mailing
address ....he said he feared for his life and could not provide me with it.
When I checked online ...I found that they are as I thought a huge "SCAM"

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.
