Type of a scam Debt Collections
Lakeside Recovery Solutions called my husband and then myself regarding “a court action” in which our daughter had “48 hours to” respond. The call was highly aggressive, and replete with legal sounding buzz words.
I believe the debt to be fictitious, but even if it were legitimate, it would be time-barred from collection. Statute of limitations is generally 4 to 6 years, and they claim they are collecting for a 2009 supposed charge that he said was $201.04, but with penalties etc. was now something like $557.00. By that time I realized I was being scammed.
During the phone call, the scammer made attempts to collect from me, although the was incredibly careful how he phrased his conversation.
I believe they have captured personal information, and are attempting to scam my family.
