I've been getting calls threating charges against me. The callback numbers have been 877-253-8241 and 877-805-1029. They claim they are the Union Group but won't give me an address or location information. I ran the number through GOOGLE and didn't find anything but I did find some posts stating that the group is Allied Mediation and located in Williamsville, NY. I spoke with a consumer attorney who told me to find out their location so can file against them in federal court.




Do you owe any debt? If not, then it’s surely a scam. Don’t share any personal information with them. They are just trying to scare you. File a complaint against them to the SAG or FTC immediately.

Even if you do have debt (and in this day and age who doesn't?) does not mean they are legit. Just the fact they refuse to give out any information says it right there. They are required BY LAW to fully identify themselves, provide contact information and send a dunning letter within 5 days of contacting someone.

The biggest indication it is a scam and illegal is the threats, no legitimate collection company following the law would resort to such tactics.

When they threaten charges just simply respond with, "Ok, you go ahead and do that, at least then I can get your contact information."

If you respond nonchalantly or even in a happy go lucky tone they just get angry, scream a little but then ultimately leave you alone as they realize you are not a typical consumer who doesn't know his/her rights.
