  1. This is why I encourage everybody to share information about the phone scams they get, like what they do at http://www.callercenter.com. When people are aware, these phone scammers would never be able to victimize anyone.
  2. Thanks for the info, 2ndTimeAround. I have received calls like that, too, and I think it's one very tricky scam. Had I not known about the scam prior to the calls, I might have fallen victim to it. The scammers were very deceiving. They had this professional tone to convince me they were legit representatives and they had information about me. These culprits are very dangerous and I think it's about time the government start considering them criminals.
  3. I'm asking because I also got a call from them, but they called for a non-existing debt, I've reported it here also. Some claim they're a legitimate organization though... could be someone impersonating them too
  4. Feeding frenzy: The smell and taste of blood in the water can trigger groups of sharks to attack their own kind while twisting and turning to get more food. Litigation frenzy: Lawyers are pitted against other lawyers, and ultimately themselves, to waste reams of paper while losing sight of a fair resolution for their clients.
  5. lol I dug up a whole comparative Study by some guy named James Fuqua "Shark" comes from the German "schurke", meaning greedy parasite. While no brave soul has gotten close enough to determine where lawyers come from, logic and common sense dictate a similar derivation. Sharks, unlike most fish, have no bones; their skeletons are mad entirely of cartilage. Lawyers, too, are spineless -- as willing to argue one side of a case as the other. For the right price. Best known as scavengers of the dead and dying, sharks have well-honed sensors with which they can track the sounds of other injured and struggling beings. They are also equipped with fine senses of smell that allow them to detect minute dilutions of blood (one part blood to one million parts water) up to one-quarter mile away. Precisely the distance a hopeful personal injury lawyer will run behind an ambulance to toss a business card. From the moment of birth, sharks' skin is tough and rough -- covered with thousands of tiny hard teeth call denticles that abrade any passerby made of softer stuff. Lawyers are also thick-skinned. Easily identified by their humorlessness and abrasive personalities, they are the bane of many social gatherings. A shark will swallow anything - up to half its own size - in one gulp. Several hundred years ago, a naturalist wrote that the headless body of a knight in armor was found in a white shark's stomach. Inside another was more recently found a sea lion, a horse and the body of another seven-foot-long shark. Lawyers, too, will swallow anything -- even their pride -- as increasing numbers of lawyer hopefuls trudge to law school each year for three years of browbeating in the hopes of financing their Porsches. Some sharks even prey on their own kind. The smell and taste of blood in the water can trigger them into an obsessed Feeding Frenzy, in which they often eat their own bodies while twisting and turning to get more food. This is not unlike the Litigation Frenzy, where lawyers are pitted against other lawyers, and ultimately themselves, to waste reams of paper while losing sight of a fair resolution for their clients.
  6. I was wondering the same thing... something's fishy going on here. Mistake in paperwork?
  7. did the consumer attorney do it pro bono?
  8. because you're friends with Gary Vaynerchuk?
  9. once again sorry, this may not be the right forum at all for something like this...
  10. I'm basing it off of a couple of articles, one was from privacyrights or something here is the other one: whycall.me/info/telemarketerssued.php (can't link yet) may be it's BS, but it seems like you can do it through small claims (would only make sense if you're in the same state of course)
  11. it's stange because I've heard several mentions of this mysterious C&D letter, but people talk about it without ever giving a link... may be it doesn't exist?
