I hear stupid people on my voice mail.
A couple days ago, I got a voice mail message which sounds a lot like ones that the FBI has already dubbed as EXTORTION. http://www.fbi.gov/news/pressrel/pre...oanscam_120710
MAY 3rd: 10:58 AM
"Hello this is C______ M______ trying to contact ____________ in regards to a formal complaint filed against him this morning for several different matters. I'm calling to verify that we do have the correct address for this individual, the next step is filing necessary paperwork with ____________ County District Court. Now, at this time, he does have a legal right to contact the plaintiff, should he wish to exercise that right the plaintiff's phone number is 888-xxx-xxxx, he will also need to reference case number xxxxxx. At this time ____________ has officially been notified."
No idea who the alleged plaintiff is, calling it from a pay phone gives you the hilarious message if you don't know the extension of the person you want to speak with, press zero to wait for the next available "legal assistant".
But the call script has the stench of the "pay day loan" extortion scheme that the FTC and FBI has been cracking down on for the past several months.
BTW: Many months ago, I received a similar call that I picked up on, when I was finally able to get an address and fax number of the alleged 'plaintiff' surprisingly I not only didn't get sued, I didn't even get a dunning notice for the alleged debt to know why they wanted to sue me, but it looks like another party wants to play.
