Hello everyone, my name is Andrew and today I recieved a call from "ACS Inc" an "affadavit Service" they gave me the old pay us $725 or we will take you to court tomorrow (apparently they dont realize how slowly our court system works) and I would be arrested and criminal chanrges would be brought against me.

My guess is that Route 66 and Big-int are behind this. Please confirm if you have recieved a call from 646-810-8625 or518-533-5448.

They are overseas and have a heavy middle eastern accent. I did a ip lookup on the email I had them sent me because I played along and it is routed from Europe to Pakistan. FYI they certainly are not lawyers and wouldnt direct me to McDonalds.com for their address or have an email address of ACSINC[at]mail.com. Idiots, hope no one falls for this. Bet they do get some people though.

ACS is an illegal collector. Report them to the FTC and your state's AG. Ignore their calls. If you recognize their number, do not answer the phone.

This is to inform you, that you are going to be legally prosecuted in the Court House within couple of days. Your SSN is put on hold by US Federal Government, so before the case if filed we would like to notify you about this matter.

(1) VIOLATION OF FEDERAL BANKING REGULATION

(2) COLLATERAL CHECK FRAUD

(3) THEFT BY DECEPTION

(4) ELECTRONIC FUND TRANSFER FRAUD.


Now this means few things for you, if you are under any state probation or payroll we need you to inform your manager/Concerned HR department about what you have done in the past and what would be the consequences once the case has been downloaded and executed in your name.

If we do not hear from you within 48 hours of the date on this letter, we will be compelled to seek legal representation from our company Attorney. We reserve the right to commence litigation for intent to commit wire fraud under the pretense of refusing to repay a debt committed to, by use of the internet. In addition we reserve the right to seek recovery for the balance due, as well as legal fees and any court cost incurred.

WE CARRY ALL THE RIGHTS RESERVED TO INFORM TO FBI, FTC, YOUR EMPLOYER AND BANK ABOUT FRAUD.


And once you are found guilty into the court house, then you have to bear the entire cost for this law suit which totals to $4271.15, excluding loan amount, attorney's fee & the interest charges. You have the right to hire an attorney. If you don't have/ can't afford one then the court will appoint one for you.

I have been getting emails from this company from a guy named James Otis claiming I owe for a loan. When I advise him I have a lawyer who will handle this matter he just ignores that and continues the harassment. Today a woman from this company had left me an email advising me to have good sex and get back with them on Monday in a better mood. There is a phone number given 9043283041 which is a Jacksonville florida number but its been diconnected.

I'm glad I looked decided to look ASC up on the net. I too have been receiving emails from this company about owing them money and they were going to prosecute me if I didn't pay. As I knew this was a scam. Is there a way these people can be tracked down and prosecuted?

Hi Andrew and everyone else,


I just received another phone call from ACS. This is probably the fifth or sixth time since last fall. Every time they ask for the last four digits of my social security number, and when I refuse to give it to them, they get very angry and hang up. Also, they never have any information in regards to the alleged lawsuit filed against me. I am really tired of them contacting, not only me, but my family. They called me three times today and when I did not answer they contacted my mom. What creeps! No one should trust these people or give out any information. The people I have spoke with sound Ameican as they come and the call back number was 855-397-3392.
