Getting harassing call from a Rachael Collins. Claim I being charge with Bank Fraud for a payday loan I supposedly took out in 2006. She had my address of 2006. My email address, family and friend info, and SSN and bank info. I confirm that had lived at that address and that was my last 4 of SSN and that was my bank, however I didn't remember if I took out a loan or not. Claims she can get charges stop if I send MoneyGram to ERS in Florida. I told her I would, but instead spoke with Texas Consumer Trades Department and The Attorney General Consumer Fraud Protection Department, because it all sounded fishy. I mean the state of Texas is filing charges against me but if I pay a company in Florida $457 then I can stop the charges. The lady at AG said tell tale sign it a scam is Rachael Collins asking me to send a MoneyGram and telling me that the are going to suspended my license, but if I pay $457 they will send a email I need to carry in case I pulled over showing I paid in full and license is no longer suspended. Just wanting to get word out.
