Called about being served legal documents


Recommended Posts

I think this is just a scam but the guy sounded pretty professional on the phone.

Anyway I got left  a message this morning and it says he is trying to get in touch with me about legal documents attached to my social security number  and it need to be delivered to my home address tomorrow between 12-4 (of course Im a work then) and that I need to be there to sign for them. Also the other address is my place of employment and that I need to call them back to speak to them about this. The number is an 830 and when you call it back you just get this guys voice mail.

Not sure if this is legit or not. I listed again and it says hes from HCL.

First off, you are not about to be served. In this case this is an Indian company who has purchased your debt and it may be out of statute so they are trying to scare you into paying. I would not bother to answer any calls from that number and would inform family and friends that a scammer from India might try to call them with the same story. They will move on to easier targets once they realize that you will not fall for it.

Don't bother suing them for FDCPA violations. They are not based in the USA so you will not get to any funds.
