This is David Peterson from United States Law Firm Group (USLFG) USA.This e-mail is to notify you that under IC3 (Internet Crime Complaint Center) we have Registered Case against you. We tried to contact you several times but it seems apparent that you hav e chosen to ignore all our efforts.
After sending the legal notice to your current employer you will be blacklisted from getting any job.
UNITED LEGAL INVESTIGATION BUREAU HAS STATED 3 SERIOUS ALLEGATIONS AGAINST YOU AND THEY ARE:
(1) VIOLATION OF FEDERAL BANKING REGULATION
(2) COLLATERAL CHECK FRAUD
(3) THEFT BY DECEPTION
Now, this means few things for you. If you are under any state probation or payroll we need you to inform your superior or manager what you have done in the past and what would be the consequences once the case has been downloaded and executed in your name.
Through IRS (Internal Revenue Service) your Social security number will be put on hold causing severe damage to your credit history or credit report and your income paychecks will be put on hold.
Our primary job was to notify you about the case before we send you legal document in the mail because once this case gets registered then we won’t be able to help you out of court. Our client is least interested in getting the money at this point as they want to just go ahead and start taking legal actions however we wanted to contact you and give you last chance to resolve this case out of court.
If you want to take care of this out of court then contact us with payment within 48 hours and we will release the Clearance Certificate from the court.
Our intention is not to threat you, it is only an effort from our-side to settle this case outside the court.
IF YOU WANT TO RESOLVE THIS MATTER; DO REVERT US ASAP.
