How to tackle First IRS Legal Department collection agency

The steps outlined below will help you deal with the collection agency in a better way.

  • Check if the collection agency is real or is just a scam: Ask for their name, phone number, address, and the name of the original creditor. If required, send a debt validation letter through certified mail or fax.
  • Don't give your account information: Don't be afraid of handling the collection calls, but avoid giving away your bank account information. Otherwise, there can be an unauthorized withdrawal from your account. Also avoid giving out any other personal information.
  • Record calls: If your state's law allows you to record calls, you should record the collection agency's calls to use later as proof. If your state doesn't permit you to record conversations, then keep a written log of what was said, who you spoke to, and when you spoke to them.
  • Get a written agreement: If the debt is validated by the collection agency, get an agreement in writing that the account status will get updated as "Paid" on your credit report as soon as you pay off the account.

These guys are a bunch of ass clowns. First they called me on Tues and told me my outstanding payday loans (Both of them are illegal in California by the way) are a class C felony. Then he says he sent notice to my house on 1/25. That was last week. I tried to call them back and get an address where I can send a debt validation letter and the I kept getting hung up on and answering machines with no calls back. Then when I did get a live person the guy didnt even know what a debt validation letter was. LOL I asked how he could be in the debt collection business and not know. He refused to give me their address until I gave him my name. WTF should I do?

Although these post are disappointing, I feel a sense of relief.. I thought I had brought the non-sense on myself. Just today I received a phone call at work and luckly looked at caller ID before answering. I told those @$$ wipes not to call my job before hanging up on them the last time they called....
I was threatened as well to have criminal charges pressed against me. And they even gave me a time that were going to the Harris County courthouse. In addition, they were sooooo rude. This biscut told me, "If you are looking for good customer service you're mistaking honey!" and refused to give me any of the info I asked for.
Now that I see that they in fact have a rap sheet I am going send their @$$ a "HOT" letter, and contact the AG office. They are totally out of line and must be stopped.

I received a call from these people a little while ago as well. They called me last week and told me that I had to pay by 3 pm on Thursday or they were going to turn my file over to the authorities. They called me yesterday and I was out for lunch but did not leave a message. They called today when I was out for lunch and did not leave a message. They called a few minutes ago and told my office manager of the company that I work for that I had to 2:30 pm to call them back or they will call my office manager back and sue my company that I work for. I know that this is illegal. i called Mr. Johnson and asked for their address to send a debt validation letter and he told me that I did not have time because he has to turn over my information today to the authorities.

This is for everyone,

The better Business Bureau has tried to contact this company and has not been able to get ahold of them. They have had every bit of mail correspondence returned to them. They give them an F rating and on their site inform you to contact the FTC & the attorney General in your state. But, you should also contact the Attorney General in Texas as well. Also, it is ILLEGAL for them to threaten you, that null & voids the debt (if it is a real debt). If you can try to record the phone calls. When they leave a message on your voicemail get a voice recorder and record every message and make sure that there is a time & date stamp when the message plays back so that way you can prove that you are recording more than one message. Don't stoop to their level & threaten them, & don't tell them that you are recording them, (even though I know by law you have to tell them) they don't tell us if they are recording what we say to them. As much as I know you would want to ream them a new one, donn't. Just be nice & polite with them, it throws them for a loop & pisses them off because you are not doing what they want you to do. It's fun trust me. I had a call like this before but they were calling from New York. I contacted the Attorney General there and come to find out they had a law suit filed against the company. This sounds like the same ones they just changed their name & location. DON'T BE AFRAID OF THESE JERK OFFS!!!! You can always contact the Attorney General in your state and also goto your local police station and see if there is any legal action against you including a warrent. They can't refuse to look espically when you inform them of what is going on and also file a police report against this company because they are calling and harrassing you.

Has anyone received a call from these people and when you answer its just a recording with a file number and phone number saying call right away. I will be sending them a validation of debt letter and see if it comes back in the mail like my other one...should I even bother with the letter?

I too just had my very first call from First Irs, Michael Tate. He stated that i needed to call him back at 1-877-777-2551 x106 and that i needed to call him back before 3pm today and that he was with an attorney's office trying to collect a debt. I have gotten use to checking on the web for information on such phone calls when i have never heard of them and i am glad i check this time.
YES they are scams and i hope someone will sue them and shut them down for good!!!!
