Received calls 4 days in a row from a private number who left a message as "Brian Maxwell" stating I needed to call 877-878-7619 with a ref# ending in DA. He said he had a package of legal documents that was forwarded to his office….though he left no office/business information! He proceeded to tell me it was time sensitive and failure to reply would force the firm to proceed without my participation. I finally called the phone # provided, which according to Brian was the "firm" that obtained him and I spoke to a "Cynthia Padilla." She told me I owed an Old Navy bill of $3,969.54 but it could be settled by paying $1,510.82. She said she was obtained by the Orion law firm…..but wait, I thought they were the law firm!? Interesting, right. So she emailed a "legal document" that I could "just sign with my finger on my phone" and return to them stating I was going to pay Trover Consulting Firm the $1,510.82. This is a total scam, I never received anything in the mail like she said I did, and claimed that it was all documented. They threatened to contact and or serve me at work which was unnecessary since I was speaking to her on the phone. I contacted my bank/credit card companies to be safe and also reported them for abuse through [email protected] I called "Cynthia" back to tell her I wouldn’t be signing anything and that I knew she was scamming me…..she didn’t want to talk to me anymore.

Type of a scam Debt Collections
These people contacted me about a debt that’s about 11 years old asked me to pay in full 7,000, or a cop was going to come to my house and take me to jail a claim that I was going to be sued. Scared me so much I actually gave them my debit card number so they could pay two monthly payments, once I hung up the call I looked up the company phone number and company name and I saw so many peoples comment on their experiences being exactly the same and considering them.to be a fraud.
