Victim Location 06762
Type of a scam Debt Collections
I received an automated call from 844-234-2994 that asked me to verify my name, and when I did a woman with a Caribbean accent picked up the phone and told me she was a debt collector calling on behalf of Global Group Holding, and I owed money for a delinquent cash advance loan from 2010. I could either pay a 70% settlement over the phone now, or be taken to court for breach of contract. I told her I had no knowledge of any such loan, and then she verified my information. She told me the last four digits of my social security number, a previous address of my ex-fiance, and an email address that I did not recognize at all. She was very persistent on either receiving payment or calling an attorney, at which point I said I needed to speak with my husband first and call her back. She said to call the same number and ask to be transferred to Emily. About half an hour later, my husband received the same phone call from the same woman, and when he told her he knew it was a scam, she vehemently denied it and told him to have his lawyer contact [email protected] When my husband asked her why this outstanding loan never appeared on a credit report, she hung up on him.
