ACE Cash Services threatening email

Recommended Posts

This is a scam but since they have your personal information, I would file a police report and put a freeze on my credit reports ASAP. That will stop them from using that information for anything else.

They are probably sending these out hoping to scare people out of their stimulus checks. Many scammers and thieves see this as an opportunity.

I got the same letter last night.  Needless to say I did not sleep!  They have my SS, DL, addresses, phone, etc., because at one time I did have a loan with ACE.  However, that was over 7 years ago and the statute in CA is 4 years.  What worries me is that they have all of my personal info.  I think I heard at the time that they had an internal breach.  Who should I report this too?  I think it's a scam because they are trying to take advantage of people during the pandemic.

There probably was a security leak.

Contact the CRAs about putting a freeze on your account.  Also pull your credit info, see if there is anything weird on there.  If so, you may need to file a police report as well, which could be of benefit in the future.

Most likely these are scams.  Threatening jail for not paying a debt is a typical scam tactic.  The use of different email addresses is as well.  A legitimate collection law firm probably wouldn't use a gmail account.
