I have been calls over and over from someone claiming there are charges against me and they are serving papers. They called my mom and brother and today my work. I Called 877-253-8241 and another number left on my VM 800-805-1029. I spoke to someone who wouldn't give me their last name and would only say they are located in Southern California. Claimed I owed on a payday loan from 2010.




anybody who calls and says that is a scamming bottomfeeder.they also broke the law with those other two calls.report them first to your local police.have your mom and brother do the same.then use the number you have plus that name and file an FTC complaint.go to www.ftc.gov to do this then ignore them as again they broke the law and will do nothing they threaten.

Unfortunately the FTC is closed due to the government shutdown. I did call the Attorney General's office. I don't know how to get them to stop calling my work.

It is going to be tough to have them stop calling work. Just inform your boss and co-workers that you have been a victim of a scam and simply to just ignore the calls and hangup on them.

Invest in an airhorn or rape whistle...blow in the phone when they call. Or ask them what they are wearing.....

Union Group had a woman call me saying she was from a locating service and that she had papers to serve me. She gave me a number for Union Group 877-306-3654 to call. They tried to get my debit card number but would not give me an address of where they are located in California. I told them to call me back that my battery was going dead. They haven't called back yet. I barely escaped that scam because I googled them and saw the remarks about them trying to scam someone else.
