The "Colbert Legal Services Arrest Warrant and Lawsuit" Scam


Subject: Legal Notice

Claimant: Quick Payday

Plaintiff has given you more than ample time and notices regarding your long overdue balance of $ 1,368.16 for the settlement of the legal matter outside the courthouse. Numerous attempts to resolve your long overdue account have been unsuccessful. As you know, your overdue balance now equals $ 1,368.16 (which includes interest on the overdue account). Interest will continue to accrue on this past due account.

You are requested to appear in the court to defend the action of which particulars appeared earlier and now. If you do not appear and defend the proceedings, there is no hearing so it is highly likely judgment may be given in your absence.

If the court rules in favor of the Plaintiff/ creditor (Quick Payday), you have to pay up when the order tells you to. If you donate pay up as ordered, the Plaintiff may then take steps to collect on the judgment under Enforcement Action.

As per the enforcement action, your Plaintiff has some other options to make you pay –

1. Garnishment from your wages to pay the debt under an attachment of earnings order.

2. Take the money that you are owed by someone else from your bank account. It is called a third-party debt law.

3. The Plaintiff can take steps to receive the money it is owed by asking for a lien on an un-exempted real estate owned by the debtor, the sale of the property of debtor secure the debt against your home or other assets you own. It is called a charging order and means that you could lose your home if you don't keep up the repayments.

After a judgment, you may be summoned to answer questions about your finances. Fail to meet the summons it is remotely possible that you will be picked up by police for disobeying a court order.

Enforcement mechanisms

The following are the main ways of enforcing judgments:

1. Execution against goods (order from the court which directs the Sheriff or County Registrar to seize your goods and sell them to raise the amount of money which you owe plus costs).

2. Installment orders, followed (if necessary) by committal orders.

3. Earnings Attachment.

4. Judgment mortgage.

We would like to draw your attention to the fact that in most states, judgments are good for ten years, so if the Plaintiff has a judgment against you, any property you acquire within ten years of the judgment could be seized, as long as the loan has not been paid.

Even though a payday lender can sue you civilly to collect the balance of the loan, failing to pay a payday loan is not a crime while some collectors threaten borrowers with criminal action, you cannot be sent to jail unless you intentionally took out the loan not planning to pay it back as a fraud.

It will be your final opportunity to resolve this matter on your overdue balance account within five working days without the expenses of court proceedings.

You will stop this going to court if, before the date given above, you pay the sum of $ 1,368.16 being :-

The amount claimed, interest and the court rate up to the specified date, Fixed costs and Stamp duty is included for $ 1,368.16.

Under section 88 of the National Credit Code, I have briefed you up with the affidavit and done my part; now the best is up to you.

    Here is another scam:

    - Forwarded message -

    From: US Law <>

    Date: Fri, Sep 27, 2019 at 6:51 PM

    Subject: Legal Notice

    This legal proceeding is issued on your Docket# 68745988695 with one of Quick Payday Company, concerning your account with Quick Payday Inc., which you took out from Quick Payday and failed to repay them back. It is to notify you that after making several calls on your phone number they were unable to get a hold of you. So now as on today's date, accounts department of Quick Payday has decided to mark this case as a flat refusal and has authorized us to press charges against you in court.

    Plaintiff Quick Payday addresses the defendant to pay the sum of one thousand eight hundred sixty-eight which the plaintiff claims to be in respect of together with interest due thereon from the said date of repayment in full at such rate as the court may deem just. The whole as appears by Deed of Assignment in the plaintiff's favor and to pay the cost of the action.

    Please note that commercial enterprises, banks, and other financial institutions, which in any manner, are involved in the lending of money or the granting of credit, have a legitimate interest in accessing the database. The preceding also applies to debt-collection agencies. Consequently, any of the information as mentioned earlier may be passed onto such parties and may, in the process, affect your credit rating.

    We would like to draw your attention to the fact that if judgment and an order for repayment in full are obtained and remain unpaid, the following enforcement options are available and may be considered by our client.

    1. Warrant of executions by bailiffs against goods owned.

    2. Application for attachment of earnings orders with your present or future employer.

    3. Request for a charging order on any property you may own or are purchasing under a mortgage. (Where the balance outstanding is of a sufficient level.)

    In short, you will end by paying $ 7,687.57 either by selling any of your assets or properties, along with you the other references that you used while making the transaction will also have to face the consequences.

    We would emphasize that should judgment be entered against you this may affect any future credit application you may make elsewhere. We would also draw attention that all legal costs incurred in this situation are usually payable by the debtor.

    The balance includes an administration cost of $ 1,868.16 which has been added to offset (some of) the expenses incurred by our client.

    As we put your SSN into the National Checking Database System, we found that you have never been charged for any fraud activity hence I have personally evaluated your file, and with my experience, there is nothing here to suggest that this was done with any ill intent or malice.

    Therefore, the nature of this notice is to determine whether there is a willingness on your part to resolve the matter voluntarily or if this is a flat refusal and a breach of verbal or written contract.

    This is the letter I received:

    "Affiliations: Judicial Circuit of United States of America

    Date: 17-04-2019

    Plaintiff: Quick Payday

    Description of Information:

    The case is to be registered in the court by April 18th, 2019 3:30 p.m. and will be executed in the court after five days.

    Our client Quick Payday is a Finance Company claiming outstanding dues of a Pay Day Loan provided to their Client, with Social Security Number: by administrative offset of account payable by the Government under section 9, chapter 19. Providing us American Legal Processing Division a DIVISION OF FEDERAL CRIMES BUREAU, the legal representatives are pursuing to hold you in regards to six serious allegations, which are under the presumption of civil charges.

    1. Violation of Federal Banking Regulation Act 1956

    2. Collateral check fraud

    3. Breach of contract

    4. Internet fraud

    5. Theft by deception and

    6. Violation of EFT that is Electronic Fund Transfer Act 1989

    Now, these allegations were produced from the fact that you were being monitored online as well as tracked down by the Internet Prevention and Detection Department Internet Legal Research Group (I.L.R.G.]), using your email address to solicit funds from a website owned and operated by Quick Payday. As per the records of A.L.P.D, this site is working under QUICK PAYDAY.

    The funds were successfully transferred into your bank account utilizing an interstate E.F.T. that stands for Electronic Fund Transfer, but when Quick Payday tried to extract the funds back as repayment, there were 6 E.F.T ’s returned, constituting a worthless electronic check and after several reminders, you did not bother to reply back. Therefore, instead of chasing you for money, Quick Payday has decided to write off this money as the loss and deemed it to be stolen as well as press charges against you for Financial Fraud and Theft by deception. Henceforth, under Section-9, Chapter-19 they have filed the legal lawsuit against you.

    Under Section 31 U.S.C. 3716 the company can collect the funds before seven years of the contract as per the federal government's right to collect the debt first accrued, except as otherwise provided by law.

    For you this means three things:

    1. If you are in any state supervised probation on parole, you need to contact the officers and make them aware.

    2. If you have any prior convictions including but not limited to worthless checks, grand theft, or money laundering, please know, your case will be treated as a habitual offender because your state is a zero-tolerance state.

    3. You do have a right to hire an attorney to take this matter inside the courthouse with the legal procedures. If you do not have one or you cannot afford one than one might be appointed to you if you lose this case in the court than the legal charges will be levied upon you that will $ 7,984.81. These exclude your bail fees, your attorney fees, and the outstanding and principal amount you owe to the client.

    According to State Bar Association, your trial attorney's charges will be nothing less than $ 255 to $ 520 an hour. Also, the court fee charges, legal affidavit cost, bail fees, stamp duty, and the outstanding amount that approximately comes around $ 17000 to $ 18000, which you have to bear. So, make sure that you do not lose the case.

    IRS Reporting:

    Kindly find a 1099-C and W-9 and fill out required information along with your TIN (Taxpayer Identification Number). The IRS under Internal Revenue Code 6331(H) will monitor your matter to make sure that you report the amount of income.

    Even if you don't get a Form 1099-C from Quick Payday, the Quick Payday may very well have submitted one to the IRS. If you haven't listed the income on your tax return and the Quick Payday has provided the information to the IRS, you could get a tax bill or, worse, an audit notice. It could end up costing you more (in IRS interest and penalties) in the long run.

    If you have any existing payment plan with the IRS, then it will be terminated under the section 30 AFIR code.

    Foreclosures and property repossessions: This rule applies even to debts you owe after a house foreclosure or property repossession, the IRS have each right to mark liens on your assets which includes your bank account, house, automobiles, shares, certificates or any private government bond will be totally ceased. All your public bank accounts will get frozen and confiscated, state id, debit cards, and credit cards, etc. and detained by the department of treasury.

    By forwarding the subpoena to social security any child support, disability, unemployment or retirement benefits will be either placed on hold or will be stopped until the outcome of the case. In this situation, the law can seem especially cruel: Not only have you lost your property, but you will also have to pay income tax on the difference between what you originally owed the lender and what it was able to sell your property.

    In addition, it might be possible that they also file a non-bailable arrest warrant for you for jail time.
