I received a call from this number about unpaid phone calls from my phone to 900 numbers. What do I do?

Hav you tried calling it to see where it originated?

Ignore them. And don't bother calling them back. I don't even need to punch that number into Google to tel you who it is. It's good old Paul Kupferstein/Jay Cowen/Liability Solutions/"the law office". Just for future reference in this post, though, I will show you a link to whom they are:

See - good ol' Liability Solutions. I assume you received a call from either Juan David or Steve Sargent.

The company that called you has been discussed and debated ad nauseum on this board. Here are just a couple threads you can browse: ein.html l

This company, although they will come here and claim otherwise, buys junk debts and through illegal practices, attempts to extort money from you. I can guarantee you that if you live in the United States, they cannot collect any debt from you, as they are not licensed in the USA. I am not sure on their rights to collect in Canada. But the fact it, you do not owe that debt. It was written off by your phone company. LSI came along, bought up the garbage debt, and is now trying to scare you into paying. Don't believe a word they say. They cannot arrest you. They are not filing papers on you in court. Statements like those are their modus operandi.

And now, my reference in the beginning in showing who they are: Funny, but I believe Janet (who works there) claims they don't collect 900 number debt. Post #4 on this page: ein-43.html

And yet again, the company lies.....

I have never received a phone call from this company however, I do know someone that recently has been receiving these ridiculous phone calls. First off, a law firm would never speak to you in this regard. They are far more grammatical and "politically correct" than these uneducated biligerants. I find it quite commical that they claim to be a law office. Technically, it's not illegal however it is very laughable that they need to call themselves this to feel dignified. When in actually, they are simply a group of people working for a collection agency on behalf of different companies. I would even suggest they make minimum wage and get a kick out of threating people in which they have no idea of their personal circumstances.

My suggestion (as one that is legally educated) is to let your family members know who these people actually are (to bring some ease to older parents that are worried that you are in serious criminal trouble, alligations etc) and just re-assure them that this company is quite simply a joke. You do have debt that is owed. Go to the source, not a branch go to the head office and determine your reference number, and outstanding settlement balance. The actual money order will be written to the company that you owe money to.

Try not to worry about threats of this nature. Again, it is commical that these people suggest that outstanding debt is "fraud". Fraud is falsification, the specific legal definition varies by legal jurisdiction. Fraud is a crime, and is also a civil law violation. Many hoaxes are fraudulent, although those not made for personal gain are not technically frauds.

Ask for all documentation for these expected amounts to be sent to you via mail, photocopy these documents. If they in fact get sent.

I recieved a phone call on monday the 26th of OCT. 2009 from Mr. Hazel. Evidently, my name and number were recorded as a reference for a friend of mine. The name and number which appeared on my cell phone were The Law Office, 905 474 3535. I had no idea I was used as a reference and my friend denies ever using my name or number for anything other then a job application.

Mr. Hazel specializes in deception. First off his name is not really Mr. Hazel. I find that extremely annoying. Mr. Hazel called my cell phone and the very first words out of his mouth were a lie. The law office is categorized as a law office however, the primary function of this business is debt collection. That was lie number 2. Mr. Hazel then proceeded to tell me it was important that my friend be made aware of an important legal matter. That would be lie number 3. There is no legal matter but there may be a debt. I don`t know my friends financial situation. Mr. Hazel then requested I provided my friends phone number and address so that he may contact him regarding this very important legal matter. That was lie number 4. I asked Mr. Hazel how it would be that he has an open Legal File with my name as a reference but no information regarding the actual ``client``. He told me that it happens sometimes and that he wasn`t able to elaborate further because it was a private matter. Lie number 5.

I told Mr. Hazel i wouldn`t be giving out my friends information but that I would pass along the message to my friend, which I did.

On Oct. 28th I recieved a follow up call from Mr. Hazel asking if I had heard from my friend. I told Mr. Hazel I was able to reach him and deliver the message. Mr. Hazel let out a loud sigh* and said that unfortunately my friend still has not been in contact with him. I asked again what the problem was. Mr. Hazel again stated it was a private legal matter. I asked how my name got on the file and my question was ignored. I told Mr. Hazel i cannot give out my friends information and he said ``I understand``. Mr. Hazel attempted to get me to contact my friend again on his behalf. At this point I stopped Mr. Hazel and told him how he has called me twice regarding an urgent matter which is not mine and lied to me about 5 times. He asked what he lied about.. as if he didn`t know already. I told him he is not calling regarding a legal matter that he is acting on behalf of a collections agency. I also told him he worked with Mr. David and Mr. Sargent. He asked how I knew this information and then attempted to reference me to a website I could verify what he was saying but I interupted him and told him not to call my cell phone anymore.

I owe no debts and no money to anyone. I am annoyed and insulted that a collections agency would call my cell phone regarding the debt of someone else, under the pretence of the call being for an important legal matter. Further more, the agent acting on behalf of the Law office lied several times and while that very well may be his job, lying to an innocent person is wrong. How would you feel to recieve a call where the purpose is to concern you about a friends well being and then to find out that it was all a lie and that this caller was really trying to get you to incriminate your friend. It is very upsetting.

If you don't owe the debt that the person was talking about, then you should not give him a call back. Rather, if the person gives you a call back again, then you can send a cease and desist letter to them and ask them to stop calling you.
