ACS Incorp Harrassment?

Sub: ACS Incorp Harrassment?
Thu, 29/11/2012 14:45

Hi, I've been receiving phone calls from a Mac Dawson from ACS Incorporated trying to collect on some type of debt that I have (i think he mentioned a pay day loan)...when I ask them what the debt is from, they won't disclose that information, but continue to call & harass me several times a day. They have been calling my work as well & speaking with my supervisors & harassing them as well.

Finally I took his phone call, & he is trying to set me up on some type of payment plan, took my credit card information (which was a credit card which has nothing on it, wanted to research it before giving my actual CC info) so they can take out money out & sent me some type of paperwork that I need to sign to allow them to do this.

well I never sent him the signed paperwork that he wanted, so he called me 30 times within the hour...I finally picked up & explained to him that I would like for him to cease communication w/ me & that I'm getting in touch w/ my AG & complaining to the FTC, but he said if I were to do that, that things would get worse & people would show up to my work & Garnish my wages?!? First off, I live in NC, so payday loans are illegal to begin with, along with wage garnishment....but now I'm scared on what he can do to me.

Any ideas on what I should do?!?! I'm supposed to send him the "signed paperwork" by today at 10:45...the only reason why I told him I'd do that is so he'd leave me alone! help! please!

Got an email today from that company. Very threatening. Didn't fall for it. Emailed back that we were forwarding the information to the FBI and then did it. Below is the reply we received and then followed through with their instructions.----------------------------------------------------------- ---------------

Thank you for contacting the FBI Washington Field Office. Please be advised that this is a very common internet/email scam. We are aware of these types of scams and will do everything we can to continue to identify and prosecute perpetrators who violate US federal law. That being said we would ask that you go to [URL="https://ch1prd0102.outlook.com/owa/redir.aspx?C=96R OmKcq7EGVtxD7rSIuSlmX..."]www.ic3.gov[/URL] to file a complaint for this online scam. The IC3 was established as a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C) to serve as a means to receive Internet related criminal complaints and to further research, develop, and refer the criminal complaints to federal, state, local, or international law enforcement and/or regulatory agencies for any investigation they deem to be appropriate.

When filing the complaint at IC3, it's important to include as many identifying details as you can as this will help establish if there is a pattern of complaints with this particular individual, their email and the type of scam they are perpetrating.

For future reference, I've also attached our website for the most recent scams: [URL="https://ch1prd01 02.outlook.com/owa/redir.aspx?C=96ROmKcq7EGVtxD7rSIuSlmX..."]http://www.fbi.go v/scams-safety/e-scams/e-scams[/URL] .

Thank you.

We just received a similar email from this company and forwarded it to the FBI. Here are their words and instructions which we just followed through with.

Sub: #4 Same problemWed, 07/25/2012 - 17:19



I have the same problem with these idiots. They spoof their phone numbers to look like they are coming out of the same area code as mine. One of them even threatened to come to my house and kill me. I took down his fax number and sent him a fax of a picture of myself holding a few of my firearms collections with a sign that says, stop calling or I will find you. They called more until I threatened to involve homeland security, the FBI, and the CIA... yes it was a lie... the only one I could involve was the FBI and I filed a complaint with IC3, but it was enough to stop the calls for a while. When they started calling back I spent a few days with the normal pranks, an airhorn into the phone, answering and then sitting the phone down and turning on porn while recording what he was saying etc. Finally I got tired of the little toys and went onto my cell phone carrier website and blocked all numbers they call from. It works, they can't do anything if they are blocked. Also if they calling your work, somewhere at some point on the internet you applied for something that got phished and you put your work telephone number into it. Bad on you. I'd suggest explaining the situation to your boss that they are a scam artist and include it in your complaint of harassment.

Sub: #6 You can send it, but you need to remember that these people are Mon, 11/29/2010 - 06:46



You can send it, but you need to remember that these people are operating illegally and are most likely out of the country so, they probably won't abide by it. Your best defense is to not talk to them. The more your pick up that phone, the more they think they'll be able to squeeze some cash out of you.

Sub: #7 should I go ahead & fax a cease & desist letter? the only thing Mon, 11/29/2010 - 06:35



should I go ahead & fax a cease & desist letter? the only thing that concerns me is them calling my work...I told them to stop & he agreed to stop calling, but still...when he had called, my boss def. told him that she wasn't transferring the call bc to her, it seemed like a prank call, and he def. said "i put bomb in your office" & hung up, then called back again.

Don't give them a penny. This is a scam. Take a look at this thread. File your complaints and then ignore their calls. http://www.debtconsolidationcare.com/collection-agencies/ thread58802.html
