I rec'd a message on my home phone from a lady at Vandenberg Chase & Associates saying she needs to talk to me re: a pending lawsuit against me. I googled their number and found out this place is a scam. They threaten people with "lawsuits" and tell them they need to pay otherwise a warrant for their arrest will be issued. Apparently this company purchases oold debts from other CA's and they try to threaten people into paying them.
I know for a FACT that all of my collections have been paid, so there is no way I could owe them. I called the lady back and left a message telling her she doesn't scare me and if this is a legitimate debt, then they need to contact me in writing. So, today, this lady left another v/m for me asking if i could call her back to give her my address. I'm like WTF?! Yeah right! I told her never to call me again and that I reported the company to the FTC, which I did yesterday.
Has anyone dealt with these scum bags before? Does anyone have an address for them so that I can send them a c and d letter?

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.
