Sub: Process Server- called me at work!
Thu, 15/07/2010 04:36

I got a call at work today from someone saying they were a process server, and said they would server me today. I asked them what the address to my office was, and their "computer wasnt' working" so they didn't have it in front of them. In the meantime, they gave me the number to a "legal department." The recording when it answered said I have reached "CRS."
I spoke to a rep and this is regarding an internet loan from "PDL" from December of 2008.
I have NEVER been contacted by this company in the past two years, and they wouldn't give out the actual company's info.
I have had payday loans in the past, but declared bankruptcy in early 2008, so I know for a fact this was either included in the bankruptcy, with my other debts, or just another scam to get money.
I told her I would not give her money over the phone unless I knew the validity of the debt, and she got upset and said I am about to be served, and then hung up on me.
If I do in fact get served, how does an internet loan from 2 years ago hold up in court????
any advice is appreciated. Thank you!! =)

Hi. I'm suffering the unprofessional, harassing tactics of CRS. Does anybody have their address? Each time I ask them I am hung up on. They are truly awful and I want to take legal action.

i also recieved a call from crs on my cell and was told i had this much time to call them back. i even got a call from the general manager of the office and he instructed me to call him back asap. i am not able to call during business hours, so when i did call back to leave a message all four numbers i had for them had been disconnected. i have not heard from them since

i got a call from them also two weeks ago and was told the same thing.i got scared and sent them some money. i then was sent an email from a company called debt busters that help people whom have had payday loans. i spoke to a gentleman who was very helpful. he told me the next time i spoke to them get a physical address, ask them for info on the company they represent, do not send them any more money, and pull a copy of your credit report. if they are a legal company and want money from you, it would be on your credit report. i followed all these instructions. they were not on my credit report, i was put on hold when i asked for an address. when they came back on the phone the address i was given was false. she gave me an address with no city, when i asked for the city is was pulled out of the air, and the zip code was from a different state. i would call and leave messages asking for info and left messages at the appointed extension. nothing. yesterday i recieved a call from a man name john claiming to be their general manager. when i called the number he left this am, i got a message saying this number was no longer in service. i tried the other three numbers i had and the same thing. i tried at different times throut the day thinking maybe it was a technique they used to not pick up the phone before a certain time. good luck

I've done that too, and they DO get miffed, don't they? But it makes me wonder how many people fall prey to these scams and send money - really sad, isn't it?

Paul is correct. a process server is not going to call you and tell you they are looking for you. they work on the element of surprise. these people think they can scare you into giving them money. good luck on sticking it to them.
