The "Legal Department for Debt Collection and Bank Fraud" Arrest Warrant Scams

The Legal Department for Debt Collection and Bank Fraud Arrest Warrant Scams

Online users, be aware of fake "Legal Department for Debt Collection and Bank Fraud" email messages like the one below that claim that legal proceedings and debt collection procedures will be taken against them under the Federal Fair Debt Collection Act(Lawsuit). The fake email messages are being sent by scammers to trick the recipients into sending them money by threatening legal actions. Therefore, recipients of the fake email messages which appear as if they came from a so-called Legal Depart USA, should delete and 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.
