Subject: Legal notice

COLLECTIONS & LEGAL DEPARTMENT ACE/USA

PAST DUE AMOUNT- $980.76

CASE FILE NO:- ACE 534219065

CREDITOR - ACE (ADVANCE CASH SERVICES)

Dear Debtor,

Having checked your Social Security Number through our National Checking Database System, and finding out that you have been never charged for a fraud activity, ACE has decided to give you a chance to take care of this issue outside of the Court without you having a report on your Credit History and SSN. In order to avoid a lawsuit of $3200.60 against you, we request you to kindly pay the Court Restitution Amount which is $980.76. If you settle this matter today, you may be entitled to get some percentage of deduction on the restitution amount. You will have to send us a promissory note in order to hold your case file from being sent to the court house. On a case to case basis, you may be given the solution to pay 45-55% of the pending amount in the same month & a 30 days extension to settle the rest of the settlement amount as mutually agreed.

As we were unable to reach you so we are sending you this final notification through email. This legal matter will require your cooperation, so kindly get in touch with the department to make a payment and freeze down this case.

The principle amount was $300.00 and now with the late fee and taxes it includes the Attorney charge, NFS Charge, Affidavit Charge, Rate of Interest the initial amount of $300.00 goes up to $980.76.

Note- If we don't receive any response from your side within 48 hours, your case file will be downloaded automatically against you. After that we are unable to help you and you will receive court summons at your door steps with the cost of lawsuit around $3200.60.

We don't appreciate your negligence on this account and if you do not want to make resolution on this account with us regards your case file then we do apologies.

Should further action be taken, We will file suit against you for defamation of credit; relief under the FDCPA, breach of signed agreement and request payment of our attorney fees and costs and statutory penalties.

Your prior correspondence, emails, etc. were not in compliance with the FDCPA. As you know, FDCPA permits statutory penalties consisting of $800.15 per violation;

UNITED LEGAL INVESTIGATION BUREAU HAS STATED 4 SERIOUS ALLEGATIONS AGAINST YOU AND THEY ARE:

(1) VIOLATION OF FEDERAL BANKING REGULATION

(2) COLLATERAL CHECK FRAUD

(3) THEFT BY DECEPTION

(4) DEFAMATION OF CHARACTER

WE HAVE ALL THE RIGHTS RESERVED TO INFORM TO FBI, FTC, YOUR EMPLOYER AND BANK ABOUT FRAUD.

We wholly contest this debt and request a full accounting of the debt along with court resolution fee of $3200.60 after the judgment in the courthouse which is totally impose upon you.

NOTE: IF YOU IGNORED THIS EMAIL AND FAILED TO TAKE CARE OF THIS DEBT THAN ALL OF YOUR BANK ACCOUNTS WILL BE SEIZED THROUGH MAJOR CREDIT BUREAUS WITHIN NEXT SEVEN BUSINESS DAYS, THAT’S WHY YOUR CO-OPERATION WOULD BE REALLY APPRECIATED.

Once the court action is initiated and a Judgment / Decree against you to recover the balance amount with the cost of law suit is received, we may need to ask the court to give one of the following order, should the debt remains unpaid:-

· Attachment of Earnings base (Earnings Arrestment). Deduction from your wage by your employer or arrestment of part of your salary to satisfy the debt.

· Warrant of Execution (Exceptional Attachment Order). Seizure and sale of movable non-essential assets / property by a County Court Bailiff /Sheriff Officer.

If you are under any state probation or payroll we need you to inform your reporting officer or manager about what you have done in the past and what would be the consequences once the case has been downloaded and executed in your name. If we do not hear from you within 48 hours of the date on this letter, we will be compelled to seek legal representation .We reserve the right to begin litigation for intent to commit wire fraud under the pretense of refusing to repay a debt committed to, by use of the internet and your SSN. In addition we reserve the right to seek recovery for the balance due, as well as legal fees and any court cost incurred.

We have settlement amount for you;

1. If you can make one time payment of $450.00 then we can close your case file with this amount only.

2. If you are looking for bi-weekly payment then you have to pay total amount of $500.00 with payment arrangement and you can pay $100.00 bi-weekly till paid in full.

3. If you are looking for monthly payment then you have to pay total amount of $600.00 with payment arrangement and you can pay $150.00 monthly till paid in full.

Kindly let us know what type of payment arrangement you are looking for.

    From: ACS LEGAL GROUP
    Sent: Thursday, April 19, 2018 10:27 AM
    To: cathy dutton
    Subject: PAST DUE INVOICE



    Garnishment Notice
    Case File #: FL38654/D(25)
    Legal Charges-Section 19(A), Clause 21(US).
    Case Format- Fair Debt Collection Act 811 (FC/SC)
    Last Date to File Lawsuit- April 26th, 2018
    Pay the settlement offer $429.00 by today and settle this matter completely.


    Dear Debtor,



    This letter is to notify you that we have received a Summons of Garnishment on your wages. This means that someone you owe money to has been awarded a judgment by the court for payment of the debt. The court has ordered us your employer to deduct 25% percent of your disposable earnings and make payment to the court on your behalf. The following applies to you:



    Before you are arrested

    If you pay in full, or make a part-payment before you are arrested, the warrant will be recalled and amended. However, it will be immediately re-issued if the debt is not paid in full.

    After you are arrested

    Once the warrant has been served, your only options are to serve the time in prison or pay the debt (plus costs) in full at the court house.

    If you want to stop the garnishment deductions from your paycheck, you must obtain a release or pay the entire amount you owe, which you can pay with the help of One Vanilla Silver Card, Western Union and American Express Prepaid Card in order to close this account.



    What is garnishment?



    Garnishment is a legal process that allows a creditor to remove funds from your [bank]/ [credit union] account to satisfy a debt that you have not paid. In other words, if you owe money to a person or company, they can obtain a court order directing your bank to take money out of your account to pay off your debt. If this happens, you cannot use that money in your account.



    Why am I receiving this notice?



    On March 22nd 2018 we received a garnishment order from a court to [freeze/remove] funds in your account. The amount of the garnishment order was for $1000.00. We are sending you this notice to let you know what we have done in response to the garnishment order. You can contact your creditor for settlement amount.



    If you have any questions about the garnishment, you should contact the persons named on the included Summons of Garnishment by email.



    Sincerely,
    Settlement Department

    Here is another scam:

    ---------- Forwarded message ---------
    From: ACS incorp
    Date: Wed, Apr 11, 2018, 9:34 AM
    Subject: Arrest warrant I’d:- CA-152/A26/17932 which will be going to release on Friday

    CASE FILE #: CA-152/A26/17932

    Settlement Amount: $450.00

    Urgent: Please rectify this matter immediately.


    Despite my previous reminders, the above invoice for $450.00 remains unpaid. As such, we would appreciate you making this payment as soon as possible.


    This letter is to notify you that we have received a Summons of Garnishment on your wages. This means that someone you owe money to has been awarded a judgment by the court for payment of the debt. The court has ordered us your employer to deduct 25-30% percent of your disposable earnings and make payment to the court on your behalf.


    Why am I receiving this notice?

    The United States, or a State Debt support enforcement agency, certifying its right to garnish your Federal benefits shall attach or include with a garnishment order the following Notice; Garnish wages owed to a Debtor after the Small Claims Court has made an order that you owe money. On April 10th 2018, we received a garnishment order from a court to [freeze/remove] funds in your account. The amount of the garnishment order was for $1423.13. We are sending you this notice to let you know what we have done in response to the garnishment order. You can contact your creditor for the settlement amount.

    I regret to advise that unless payment is received by this invoice will be passed over to a courthouse/lawyer. This could seriously affect your credit rating so I urge you to contact us immediately to make payment or arrange an alternative before this date.

    Please reach out to us immediately if you would like to set up a repayment plan.

    Best Wishes,

    David Walker.

    As we were unable to reach you so we are sending you this final notification through email. This legal matter will require your cooperation, so kindly get in touch with the department to make a payment and freeze down this case.

    As you are a defaulter on this credit, the following counts are likely to be represented against you at local County Courthouse:

    (1) VIOLATION OF FEDERAL BANKING REGULATION
    (2) COLLATERAL CHECK FRAUD
    (3) THEFT BY DECEPTION

    Once the court action is initiated and a Judgment / Decree against you to recover the balance amount with the cost of law suit is received, we may need to ask the court to give one of the following order, should the debt remains unpaid:-

    · Attachment of Earnings base (Earnings Arrestment). Deduction from your wage by your employer or arrestment of part of your salary to satisfy the debt.

    And as per the agreement the funds have yet to be returned and the collateral has proven to be null that is to say of no value.

    At present, ACS INC is seeking either of the following remedies:-
    All funds to be returned as per terms of initial contract.

    Dear debtor, as we were investigating your profile credit bureau & social security administration we need some right answers from your side. Also we would like to know when you can pay the requested $970.85 to settle this case.
    To resolve this issue contact us during the working hours Monday to Saturday 09:00 AM to 05:00 PM EDT by reply back to this E-mail to get in touch with the representative.
