was told I was being sued and had a restraining order against me and to call them back and I did and it just rang and rang...im not in s Carolina im in az im a truck driver and im always alone was a weird call
Same story, except I didn't call back.
Same thing happened to me today.said I was having a restraining order against me?I'm in Az also.I think this is scam.I don't know what this is.
Someone claimed to be special investigations unit and said I had a restraining order. Called back today and an automated system said it was Capital Legal Alliance. Appears to be run by Russians. Ripoff report lists Capital Alliance as running payday loan scams. Don't know if same Co.
Same thing happened to me. I received a voice message and it said I was having a restraining order against me and that I was going to be receiving a court subpoena to appear in court. I called the number and the person wouldn't tell me anything other than I had not made a payment to Capital One Visa since 2008 and that they were suing me for the charges. If I wanted to avoid court I could pay the balance. I didn't! I reported the call to the BBB and to FCC and they said it was a Scam. I don't even have a Capital One Visa and will never have one now!
same story to the letter. Glad to find out it's a scam.
Wow. so happy to read all of these comments! I just got that same message, and I haven't called the number back. I couldn't figure out how there would be a restraining order for me in SC, so I checked the number here! Will be reporting them to authorities!
Just had the same phone call stating there was a restraining order against me and I am a respondent in a legal matter and I had 48 hours to respond. When I called back, they had my social number, but I wouldn't confirm that is the correct number and the woman on the phone got very angry with me. I told her I refused to give my social over the phone or even confirm. Don't fall for this one!
with me it just sits on hold til it times out!
wow after reading all these comments about these scammers i kind of got scare i know i owe some money but when i call them she couldn't reason and she got angry and hung up. I think these people are fake and someone must do something about it. I am calling BBB. lets put them out of business...
I received a voicemail from Capital Legal Alliance saying an order of protection has been issued and I have 24 hours to respond. The message included a case #. The first time I called I was on hold for 20 minutes. I tried to leave a voicemail and the mail box was full. I just called back and it went straight to voicemail. What the heck is this all about????
Message left on my answering machine . No name other than civil investigation unit , a very generic Unit no location or who filing an affidavit , grace an affidavit number GTAa-2613.. Must be a scam as I don\'t owe anyone and if I were being sued would be served subpoena not called. Glad to see these other messages here.
They need a claim number. It is totally bogus. I told the girl that it sounded like a scam and she said \"Well, then, don\'t call.\" I called back and asked for the W-9 information. She told me to stop calling.
Said I had a restraining order against me. It is in South Carolina. When I put that number in Yahoo search I got a Zillow listing in California. I will report it to Do Not Call in hopes that means something.
Called FTC and financial governance commission. They suggested asking for their prof. License number. I called and asked for it and the lady hung up on me. FTC said if they were not willing to provide their license number, that's a red flag. I will not call again.
same thing happened to me. these people are good to find all your numbers and call the numbers at the same time. my friend had receive calls from them, same trick. This time they have our names, but we aren't buying. we need to report this number to the FTC to stop them.
One more here. Same message - criminal investigation unit, restraining order, case number, call back or else. When I called and heard a recorded message saying "if you have received a restraining order message, press 2," I decided to bring in the BBB.
I live in Las Vegas, they said I had a restraining order in South Carolina, I have never been there.
Same happened to me.. Called back kept on waiting indefinitely..
Received several calls & voicemails about a pending legal action against me.. restraining order, case # GTAA3432... blah blah blah. Called back a few times & tired pressing the different options- all just rang or the call ended. Today a woman, "Janice Williams" although I could've sworn she said Kathryn the first time, answered for all available phone menu options. She had my name, last 4 of my social, & a previous address. She said Action Card issued me a VISA in 2003 & as of 2008 were suing me for unpaid charges & attempted fraud in the amount of $750.46. I was in 9th grade at that time & she suggested my parents then opened the card in my name & have been hiding all the mail that has been sent regarding this claim. Yeah... I'm sure. I did not confirm any of my information & I think she was asking questions to illicit "yes" & "no" responses. I asked if this was a legitimate legal group or a phone scam to which she became angry quickly & did not have the phone manner or attitude of a legitimate legal representative. She said "See you in court" a few times. She said Capital Legal Alliance does not have a website, they're address is 1338 S. Main St. Columbia, S. Carolina 29201, & she would not give me the name of the "attorney" handling the "case" or allow me to speak with anyone else but her. She would not give me any other information about their "company" or "client" Action Card. This is 100% a scam. Don't bother answering or returning the call. I'm guessing they will record your "yes" & 'no" responses to use in a scam or get you to "settle" the case & get your payment information.
This company is calling on debts they do not legally own. The debts were sold to them by Osborne Giles of King & King Associates. They have been reported to the attorney General, the fTC and CFPB. Local law enforcement authorities will be involved as well.
I got the same call and it said i had a restraining order i live in va and i knew i had not been fighting with anyone. They said i had a old Providan credit card they called me twice with 2 different case # this was in my bankruptcy filed in 2003 and i keep a excellent check on my credit report so i know i did not owe this i have all up todate information on my report and i read it to her it was updated and researched by the credit buerue and i told the lady to give me the address i would send my proof she gave me a non working fax number i told her i was going to take legal action if her company called me again the company i had a funny feeling this was a scam.Scammers need to be prosecuted.Get a real job i hate people like this i'm going to report this to the local news and the police hope they get caught.
I have now received three calls from this group. The first two times they had my full name and address (well my maiden name), but the social security number they gave me wasn't mine. I told them that and that I'm disputing this charge. They said they would forward it on. I do have an ACTIVE card with the company they claim they represent, but the balance is nothing like the one they have AND my account is in GOOD STANDING!! This is also not on my credit report. I have told them all of this repeatedly. Today I called the number back and spoke to someone who initially gave me the wrong SSN again, but then gave me the correct one. I guess their skip tracers looked it up with my name and address. Either way, this isn't my bill. She said that a subpoena has already been signed for me and if I don't call and make payment by 4pm today I will be subpoenaed to court. I did try to look them up with the BBB, but "Capital Legal Alliance" could not be found.
