Debt Collection Agency Legal Notice 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.

    Got this:

    Dear Debtor,

    It has brought to our attention to collect from you the entire balance of a debt you owe to ( Cash Advance, Cashnet USA, Speedy Cash, ACS verified collection group ) as of Today the amount of the debt is $1385.32.

    If you want to resolve this matter without a lawsuit and further damaging your credit rating, you must email within 2 days of the date of this letter; either pay $950 by Today against the balance you owe or email us and work out arrangements for payment with it($900.32). If you do neither of these things we will refer this matter to an attorney to file a lawsuit against you for the collection of this debt.

    Federal Laws give you 15 days after you receive the letter to dispute the validity of the debt or any part of it. If you do not dispute it within that period we will assume that you deem it valid. If you do dispute it – by notifying us in writing to that effect. We will as required by the law, mail to you proof of the debt. And if within the same period, you request in writing the name and address of your original creditor. If the original creditor is different from the current creditor Cash Advance, we will furnish you that information as well. The law does not require us to wait until the end of the 15 day period before suing you to collect this debt.

    Sincerely,

    Settlement Team.

    Subject: Re:- Wage Garnishment

    

    Case No: - FTC-182-MYCNS-7292002

    Total Overdue: -$1649.68

    (include penalty, interest rate, late payment charges)

    Docket Number: -2:19-AP-938273-FC

    Settlement Amount: $850.00 (Outside the courthouse) or two payments of $425.00 from Today  

     NOTE: - Immediate Legal Action for Non-payment

    This is a formal demand letter for payment in the amount of$1649.68.

    Since no payment was made, the amount is now considered overdue and we request you to make the payment. Please provide me with payment in full in the next 15 working days and if you cannot come up with full payment we can set up a payment arrangement. If I have not received your payment or reply in 15 business days, I have the right to enforce this order in Small Claims Court. If you do not believe you are liable for these amounts, you will have a right to present your defense in court.

    Being a polite and humble collection agency it is our duty to inform you that if the payment is not made on time, then there are legal actions that can be taken against you. So, it would be better to avoid any such situation and make the payment before the due date.

    Through Small Claims Court I have the right to request a payment hearing to find out information about your financial situation. I also have the right to apply to garnish money from your wages and bank accounts, hire a court bailiff to seize and sell your belongings, If there is any clarification you need in case of the payment to be made, then feel free to contact us anytime

    I am hopeful that we can resolve this matter without going through Small Claims proceedings. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss payment options.

    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.

  • August 22, 2018 at 6:38 PM by an anonymous user from: Indianapolis, Indiana, United States

    How do I stop this email. I got the same email but replied back because they did scare me, wat do I do now?

    • August 23, 2018 at 1:52 AM by info

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

      • August 27, 2018 at 4:25 PM by an anonymous user from: Waycross, Georgia, United States

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

        • August 27, 2018 at 4:40 PM by info

          Keep ignoring them.
