Beware of Fake United States Law Firm Group/Department of Justice Email Messages

The email message below: "Reference:-Customer ID:87465362, Case File No PQ - 221254- Lawsuit," which appears as if it came from the law firm: United States Law Firm Group, claiming there are pending legal actions or a lawsuit against the recipients, is a fake sent by scammers. Scammers are sending the same fake email message with the names of different law firms that have nothing to do with the fake email messages. Scammers use legitimate law firms in their fake email messages to make their scams seem legitimate, to help frighten their potential victims into following the instructions in the same bogus email messages. The scammers’ aim is to trick their potential victims into sending them money by pretending to be debt collectors. So, if you have received email messages like the one below, claiming that you own money or an arrest warrant was issued for you, please delete the email messages.

We will be forced to proceed legally against you and once it is processed the creditor has entire rights to inform your employer and your references regarding this issue and the lawsuit will be the next step which will be amounting to$3931.08 and will be totally levied upon you and that would be excluding your attorney charges.

    I knew something was wrong when they asked me to purchase Itune cards to make the payment and then they used the words "you are giving silly explainations".

    I received back to back emails in a couple of days claiming I had an overdue fine to a tech company for services that I had used over 2 years ago. The scam really made me nervous and I even talked to the guy for 30 mins. I was going to pay to avoid any further consequences, but then he mentioned that he will collect payment in terms of Apple Itunes Gift cards. That was a breaking point and I thankfully realized it was a scam.

    Main things they try is to get you panicked and nervous. Second they try to convince you to make the payment the same day so that you don't get time to think. They also claim they "sent" you legal documents and notices but you never replied to them hence they are giving you a final warning.

    So, hope this helps someone to avoid the scam artists.

    The first way to tell if it is a fake:
    1st: is someone trying to take legal action through email!
    2nd is the atrocious use of grammar!
    3rd is the creditor!

    Beyond popular belief even if you have a legit contract with someone and fail to pay, whoever buys the debt has no True legal hold or right to that debt since you did not contract with them! If the original Debtor sells the debt, it is null and void, unless you either have a written, Implied, or verbal contract with the creditor! If they harass you by mail, simply call them up, and tell them you have never heard of them, you have never signed any documents with them, and that they need to quit harassing you or you will seek legal action for fraud! That simple folks!

    Here is another scam:

    "From: Attorney.Danial Watson
    Date: Tue, Dec 8, 2015 at 3:50 PM
    Subject: LEGAL NOTICE

    This is Danial Watson from United States Law Firm Group (USLFG) USA. Reason of this email is that we have registered a case against you.

    Apart from getting laid off by your current employer after we send them the legal notice you will be blacklisted from getting any job.

    Through an 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 we will release the clearance certificate from the court and we will make sure that no one will contact you in future.

    Please let us know your intention by today itself so we can hold the case else we will meet you in court house.

    We had already mailed all the hard copies of documents to you, before sending it to Legal department for detailed study. After no response from your side finally we had communicated you through email to inform you about the matter. It is a mandatory process before filing LAWSUIT we have to inform the defender by any means.

    Our intention is not to threat you, it is only an effort from our self to settle this case outside the court.

    Note : Important document have been attached with E-mail.
