Lawsuit Scam - US Federal Law and FDCPA Legal Proceedings

The fake "US Federal Law and FDCPA Legal Proceedings" email message below, which appears to have been sent from a so-called Loan Collection Department, claiming that a wire fraud allegation charges have been filed against the recipients, is a scam. The fraudulent email is being sent by cyber-criminals/scammers to trick the recipients into paying them hundreds of dollars, by frightening them with legal action, bad credit history, and by claiming that their income, child support disability, unemployment or retirement benefits will be placed on hold.

Recipients of the fake ACS Express email message should delete it and should never follow the instructions in it.

    I have been receiving emails from a company called ACS. Today I received the legal notice that you described above. I have forwarded you the email I received. The funniest thing is the first email I received from them they have the last 4 of my SS number wrong. These companies need to be shut down, I can't imagine the number of people that actually send them money!
