Yesterday I received a phone call from an unknown number stating this man was a process server from the court. He said he said someone had filed a lawsuit against me and he needed to serve me the papers. He told me if I called 1-877-404-8463 before the end of the day, they would send him a stop order to not serve me. He said if he did not receive the stop order, he would call me this morning to set up a time to deliver the court paperwork to me at my home or employer. He never called today.
I work for my county juvenile court and have access to the adult database of court cases. I looked up my name and nothing came up. It got me to wondering if this was possibly a scam to get me to call the number. I know it may not be a scam, but I thought it sort of weird that a process server would call. He had an American accent, but it was noisy in the background in his message. I can't find the number he told me to call anywhere online to see what it might be in reference to. What do you all think?
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff 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.
