Collection Email received today (Scam?)

Recommended Posts

I got this this afternoon at 5:00. Mind you it says the settlement is only good for today, but I think I see some violations of the FDCPA, like saying they will contact my employer. Thoughts? And should I respond? Thanks!

 

am the attorney of the National Credit Collections (Hereinafter Plaintiff), I have received your case file today from Jason Ocker. The accounts department of National Credit Collections  has decided to mark this case as a flat refusal and press legal charges against you.

This Legal Proceedings Will be issued on Following Details:


Name: Pamela Humes
SSN: *****3174 
Docket no: 0264NCC
Reference#:BG7102862E         
AMOUNT OUTSTANDING:768.00

Settlement out of court: 500.00 (Only valid for today)

And we apologies that the Arrest Warrant Which you will receive in your next email positively by Monday will also be sent to your current employer too. The opportunity to take care of this voluntary is quickly coming to an end. We would hate for you to lose the option of resolving this before it goes to the next step which is a Lawsuit against you, but to do so you must take immediate action.

We will be forced to proceed legally against you and once it is processed the creditor has entire rights to inform your employer and your references regarding this issue and the law suit will be the next step which will be amounting to 6300.00 and will be totally levied upon you and that would be excluding your attorney charges. If you take care of this out of court then we will release the clearance certificate from the court and we will make sure that no one will contact you in future.

Thank you

SCAM!  A quick google search reveals HUNDREDS of people posting about receiving this exact email.  Same amount of money and everything.

For those who read this here are the warning signs it is a scam:

Arrest warrants cannot be legally served by email in ANY state.  Nor are they served on an employer.  The whole basis for this statement is to scare you into paying so your employer doesn't find out.

References?  REALLY?  NO employer would inform people who were job references for you that you had a garnishment order.  In order to get the garnishment they have to sue you first.  Second red flag:  the amount of money.  The alleged debt is $768 but will balloon to $6300 in litigation.  Even with court costs and attorney fees at best it would reach a couple grand not the grossly inflated amount they claim.  Again, this is designed to scare the consumer into believing it is cheaper and easier to pay now.

LIE.  If the matter is not in court yet then there is no certificate to file with the court.  They darn sure will make sure that you will be contacted in the future.  If you pay your name goes on the "sucker" list and within 3-6 months they will call again with a new debt and new scam. Guaranteed.

This is a SCAM created by cybercriminals.  DO NOT PAY.

I also received an email from a Jason.Adams@attorney-cashadvance.com saying that I owe $768.00 but will accept a settlement of $500.00.
