From: Federal Loan LLC <federalcollection.org@gmail.com>

Date: Mon, Apr 23, 2018 at 11:34 AM

Subject: Payment Reminder

Good Morning Shawn Brooks ,

The Amount Due on your name $490.00 your due date to payment was April 20th, 2018, you're already late for the payment.

If you do not pay your payment till today then as per the penalty clause we'll charge you $5.00 per day.

As per the Laws of Fair Practice of Debt Collection Service, we have the authority under section 28-B Column. We can charge you $5.00 penalty on a day if you skipped your payment from the specific date that we agreed on. Ex. if you late for two days then we will charge you $10.00 extra for your payment. In Case of Emergency, you inform us before about your payment and re-schedule of your payment NO CHARGE will cost to you.

And if you didn't show up on your payment dates then, its consideration as a violation of the law and without sending any notice we will take action in your case.

Thanks and Regards

Debt Settlement Division Inc.

    Date: Wed, Aug 19, 2020 at 8:30 AM

    Subject: Settlement Letter

    To: National Debt Settlement Agency <debt.settlementincorp.us@gmail.com>

    Due Amount: $1235.67

    Customer ID: #3546531

    Case File Number #: ONS-55/B37/219

    Please take this notice that your account is due with an outstanding amount of $1235.67. We have to take legal action if you ignore this email.

    If we don't get any response from your side, we shall have no alternative but to take action through the local County Courthouse to recover the amount due together with court costs and legal fees including all taxes which cost approximately $5825.35.

    So we are providing you a minimum settlement of $850.00, if you just make a payment by today then we will close this account as paid off in full with zero balance or you can make payment arrangement with us for the total outstanding balance.

    Thank You.

  • August 6, 2020 at 4:59 PM by an anonymous user from: Aurora, Colorado, United States

    Earlier today, I received a letter from someone calling himself Jerry Adams, who supposedly works for a company called Federal Collection Agency. In the emails, he claimed to represent a debtor from which (or whom) I supposedly borrowed $500. He offered to settle the claim for $480 on a one-time payment.

    When I asked for specific information as to the date(s) when I incurred this debt and the name of the specific company, I was not given any information save a supposed copy of the company's federal license.

    Am I imagining it, or is this an attempt at a scam?

    Sincerely,

    Susan D.

    Urgent Attention: Please rectify this matter immediately.

    Despite my previous reminders, the above invoice for $850.00 remains unpaid. As such, we would appreciate you making this payment by today in order to take care of this matter completely.

    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?

On January 25th 2019, we received a garnishment order from a court to [freeze/remove] funds in your account. The amount of the garnishment order was for $850.00. 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 the settlement amount.

    I regret to advise that unless payment is received by this invoice will be pa**ed 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.

    This is the letter that I received via email and every time I call the number that is listed, it says no one is available. It doesn't say who the creditor is, they can have my FEDERAL benefits since I don't work for a federal government, grammar errors, this is the first notice and only notice I've gotten and what court finalized this without contacting me?
