Long story short, I pushed back on a loan I had with Great Plains Lendings in April of this year. To be fair, it was my second loan with them and I had already paid the principle back between the combined interest of my 1st/2nd loan. I followed all the steps recommended on this website and besides a few emails following the default, I have not heard from them.
Well today I get a voicemail on my cell phone from an unknown company stating that I need to return their call within 4 hours and there is a restraining order against me. The number is 202-417-2021.
Has anyone else been contacted by this phone number? Should I be concerned?

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.
