"Debt Collection Agency Legal Notice" Phishing Scam

Would you share this Article with others?

The email messages below, which appear to have been sent by a so-called "Debt Collection Division" claiming legal actions will be taken against the recipients to recover balances due, legal fees and court cost that has incurred, are scams. The fake email messages are being sent by online scammers and not the legitimate Ace Law Office, to frighten and trick the recipients into sending them money by threatening lawsuits against them. Therefore, recipients of the fake email messages should delete and should not follow the instructions in them.

It is important that the public takes precautions when asked to send money via money transfer services like Western Union and MoneyGram, or Prepaid Debit Card to pay legal services or the government. This is because scammers use those untraceable money transfer services to collect money from their victims. Money sent via those services are not refundable, once the scammers have collected or used it.

    I received this email:

    "This is regarding the debt/loan which is still outstanding on your name and social and nothing has been paid off yet. We have all your personal information regarding this loan. We are talking about this case file and the loan that you took with the company, they do have a signed copy of the contract which is signed under your Name and SSN also would like to mention your computer's IP address was also traced when you were signing the contract with the company.

    The principal amount which you borrowed from the company, but due to late charges, the rate of interest and affidavit charges which has gone up to $550.00.

    Talking about the Creditor Advance Cash Group Company (ACE) is the parent Company, which owns & operates more than 350 payday loan websites like Speedy cash, Fast cash, 300 cash, 500 cash, Cash Net USA, Cash advance, Cash America, Payday Max, 2-minute payday loans, Payday cash, Payday perfect etc. We cannot specify the name of all 350 Payday Companies here. The creditor wants to know your intention about this matter that, what would you like to do, whether you are willing to resolve this case or you want to dispute.

    The Company is having more than 14 types of technical evidence in order to prove the money was successfully deposited into your bank account. Well, it has been mentioned in the Clause 5 (A) of Collections that the company won’t provide any paperwork also while applying for this loan, the company hasn’t requested any paperwork from your side.

    If you are willing to resolve this case, then we can provide you a one-time settlement offer of $734.27 has to be paid by this Friday as paid in full with zero balance.

    ...

    As per your contract in the event of a default, you would be contacted via the same email had you used to solicit the funds. If you did not get the email then,

    1) Either you no longer have the email address,

    2) You deleted the email thinking it's just another email advertisement to get a fresh loan or

    3) You might be caught of Identification Theft.

    Note- If you don't take this Case seriously, then we will have no options rather than filling case against you for the lawsuit cost of $4231.13 in the courthouse against you.

    Kindly update us ASAP so that we can resolve this case file outside the court otherwise we would have no options rather than filing a lawsuit against you. Kindly don’t take this notice lightly otherwise once the Case File is downloaded thereafter we won’t be able to help you out.

    Thanks & Regards

    Here is another scam:

    ---------- Forwarded message ---------

    From: LOAN DIVISION <24x7debtdepartment@gmail.com>

    Date: Thu, Sep 13, 2018 at 4:56 PM

    Subject: Re: Owing Bills

    We may issue a warrant authorizing your imprisonment if you receive an enforcement order and you fail to act within the time specified. We may also add an additional enforcement fee to each debt.

    The arrest and imprisonment warrant will be sent to the Local County Court, and a record will be created on the IC3 computer systems showing that there is a warrant for your arrest and imprisonment.

    Any police officer can execute the warrant—without giving you time to pay—and take you into custody. You can then pay the debt in full at the watch house; but if you don’t, your period of imprisonment will begin before you transfer to a prison.

    You will serve 1 day in prison for every $390.00 of the infringement notice, or at a rate as specified in the court order.

    Arrest and imprisonment warrants cannot be issued for:

    · Offender debt recovery notices

    · Offender levies

    · Any debt with less than the minimum default rate of 1 day outstanding

    · Any debt that has not yet passed its due date

    · Any debt where the default imprisonment was ordered by a court to be served concurrently.

    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.

    When you know a warrant has been issued, you should call us on ----- to discuss your options.

    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.

    NOTE: YOU CAN EMAIL US IN ORDER TO MAKE THE PAYMENT SO THAT WE CAN HOLD THIS CASE AND IF NOT THAN WE WILL PROCEED FURTHER ACCORDINGLY.

    Thanks & Regards

    I received the same email with the name logan Brown senior investigating attorney debt coLlection division offering me payment arrangements to stop me from being arrested and going to jail and that he represents several companies, and the arrangements were the same as above but would not provide me with a phone number to call. so I'm guessing it's the phone number listed above.
