Beware Of "Debt Collection Agency Legal Notice" Phishing Scam

Beware Of "Debt Collection Agency Legal Notice" Phishing Scam

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.

    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.


    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.

      Just flag the email as spam or junk so it is automatically sent to your Spam/Junk folder.

        So basically I would just keep ignoring the emails; now they’re saying why’re going to file the law suit against me?
