So I have been receiving calls from a gentleman named either Kevin or Tevin can't quite tell from the VERY thick Indian accent. Apparantly I am being arrested for felony, fraud and money laundering and a few other things that I couldnt understand..this for an unpaid pdl for 297.00 that has now gone up to 5500.00. This man will not give me any info on this account such as who the original creditor was or anything. Such I be worried or what should I do...any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
Debbie




Unless you have been laundering money, I wouldn't worry. They cannot put you in jail for debt in the US (maybe in India where they were calling from). Next time they call, tell them to send it in writing, verify your address and hang up. DOn't answer the phone anymore if they call. If you do, I would suggest you start recording the calls. What state do you live in? If it is a 1 party state, you don't even have to tell them you are recording.

Nevada is a 2 party state so you will have to inform him that the call is being recorded. When he calls and asks for you, tell him "Please hold while I turn my tape recorder on". If he objects then hang up. When they send you their dunning letter, respond with a DV and at the bottom in large bold print put

"ALL CALLS TO MY HOME ARE RECORDED"

If they call after signing for your DV, record away.

nascar,they have as much chance of getting a dunning letter from US NATIONAL BANK as i do of winning the MR OLYPMIA.in other words ain't gonna happen.i suggest you have all co-workers tell these things you no longer work there,then just don't return calls.ignore them completely.

Yeah I figured as much. I've never had to deal with these PDL a-holes so I rely on some of you other members to correct me if I give erroneous advice :twisted:

Cliff are you looking at US National or debt collectors in general? I see you listed as a Republican Counsel on the Senate PSI. E-mail from this page?

Our investigation is looking at abusive practices in the debt collection industry in general and we have already identified a couple of companies that sem to be leading in the abuse. We just learned about US National Bank from a state attorney general's office and want to follow up on its practices as well. Of course, we would like to identifiy the bigger abusers so will glady accept some input, but because of our small staff size, we have to focus on a few case studies to make our point.

Always itnerested to hear about abuses against military families whose members are serving overseas as well. You guys do a good job in sharing pertinent information about debtor rights. Unfortunately, too many people are unaware of their rights and protections against abusive practices.

I've tried to trace US National Bank and I've failed to find anything that lends them credibility as a legitimate business let alone as a financial institution. It's operated off of US soil in either the UK or India.
