Revived a text message from my brother who has had an Iowa phone number for the last 6 years and lives in Washington DC. It was a text message with information about me being sued in my county in Missouri, with a case number and a phone number to call back immediately. He sent it to me and I contacted them. Lady on the phone was very aggressive in pursuing this phantom debt that I supposedly owe from 2008. Said it was from a check cashing loan office. Total owed is $3,000 supposedly. She said I could settle it for $1,700 now with a bank transfer. I’m shocked at this point because I know it’s not true. She had my social security number as well. I asked for a letter alleging this debt and she said she doesn’t run the mail and isn’t responsible for mailing letters out. I told her even if I had a loan in 2008, my information wouldn’t be sold anyway. I worked for a loan company for many years. She said my information wasn’t sold, but bought by Shaffer, Ellis and Associates. She couldn’t explain the difference when I asked! After research, Shaffer, Ellis and Associates has an F rating and I’m 99% sure this is a scam to get money out of people. This type of harassment and scare tactics used is juvenile and I’d hate for an unsuspecting person to be intimidated enough by these people to actually give them money. As we were wrapping up the call I told her to just do whatever she thought she had to do. She said have a great…then hung up. Sounds like a call center designed specifically to harass people. SCAM!!!!
