It's a scam. WHY CAN'T the FTC STOP THESE PEOPLE???
Go to 800notes and see my and many others posts on this sacm. My fiance recieved a call from a block number and answered it. The person told him he worked for a processing service that is in charge of serving him papers that he is being sued. He hung on them and they immediatly called my cell phone number. He told me the same thing and gave me my fiance name, listed two different addresses and asked if he would be there between 9am and 7pm today. This call came at 5:30pm. I asked what this was about and he stated that someone was suing him and the company that was in charge of this was, "RS group" and then said "legal" and gave me a case number and telelphone number of 888-772-9116 to call. I ask why he was being sued and from where, the man said the papers where legal documents sealed in an envelope so he didn't know but it was in Florida. He again asked me to verify the addresses and I told him "no" and asked why he was calling me, he said this number was listed as a primary number for my fiance. He was not rude but really could not give any real information, he said to call the number and give them my case number and that someone should have already been assigned to the case, that person would give me more information. I tried to google search "RS Group" and could't find anything that would explain this. I personally have gotten rude scams on my cell and at my work from a different scam about being sued but this guy was good. If I wouldn't have google the phone number and found this site, I honestly believed this to be a true situation. So beware that this company is getting better at their scams and never verify anything without doing more research yourself first.
I got that same phone call too! They are debt collectors! If your debt is getting close to statue of limitations they will try to get you pay the debt you owe! Sometimes they will call you like they are cops or something and will get you but dont be afraid they are trying to scares you!
ITS A COLLECTION AGENCY, THEY CALL YOU BECAUSE YOU OWE YOU MONEY.. ITS NOT A SCAM.. HOW ELSE WOULD THEY HAVE ALL THIS INFORMATION ON YOU? OR BIRTHDAY'S AND SSN? I PERSONALLY PAID IT WAS ONLY $600 THEY WERE GOING AFTER AND I SETTLED FOR $500 IT JUST GETS TO THE POINT WHERE IT GETS ANNOYING.. BUT I'D BE DOING THE SAME **** IF SOMEONE HAD MY MONEY.. ALSO MY DEBT HAS BEEN PASSED FROM MORE THEN ONE DEBT COLLECTION AGENCY
SCAM. Do not fall for it!
A man called my parents and spoke to my father which happens to have my same name. The caller from RS group told my father without verifying if he was the right person that He (my father) had a Federal Court Date. My father got real scared and almost had a heart attack since he in his 80's. My father got the phone number and called one of my sisters and called the man. It was from the RS group. The told my sister the same story but my sister explained that he had spoken to the wrong person. My sister verifyied all the information through DOB, and she contacted me immediately. I spoke to the man from RS Group and he was rude and screaming at me. I decided to pass this information to my spouse. My wife spoke to this man and she asked him for further information and the man refused to give her additional information. This man was also very rude to her, so my wife decided to speak to his supervisor. The man also refused to give her any information about the company or supervisor's name. My father had to be taken to the hospital with minor heart discomfort. It couldn't been worst, but can we do about these people.
Received a call from a young lady wanting to verify my address to serve me papers and to make sure someone over the age of 18 was there to sign them. I asked what for she said she had legal documents to serve me when i asked questions concerning who it was i was transferred guy was very believing etc ended up setting up a payment to avoid being sued set it up for 2weeks out so i could research it. After reading on this site i called my bank and cancelled my debit card and then called them asking if i am being sued where was it filed out so i can call the court and verify papers have been filed etc.. Turns out they admitted i wasn't being sued they are just a collection agency i am a broker and have an app on my iPhone that records all my calls and once i told them they didn't believe i had a recording of them lying once i said ill be calling the US Attorney and who ever else i may need to he laughed and said he doesn't get intimidated easily i hit play and let him hear the recording i was hung up on lol don't fall for these guys tactics!!
These people are ruthless. They're not only very unprofessional; they said things to me that were basically criminal in nature. I couldn't get them to quit calling so I decided to turn the tables on them. I used my home phone and cell phone and had one in one hand and one in the other and just kept hitting redial. I also put both phones on speaker so I could hear the aggravation and frustration that I was now causing them. Then they tried some silly scare tactic and started answering the phone saying "You've reached the Department of Defense. You are to cease calling immediately. These are terrorists calls and we will be coming to get you." The morons don't realize that as they're saying that I'm hearing my other phone ringing in the background. Occasionally I would pause to ask them if they had had enough and if they quit calling me I would so the same. They said that they wouldn't. After about 30 minutes of it one of the guys answered and immediately said "OK, if you leave us alone we'll leave you alone. No more phone calls from us. Do we have a deal?" I was tempted to tell him to eff off and keep calling but didn't.
Obviously Michael works for them - because its a total scam. They called me telling me I owed on a loan I never took out. They tried to tell me they would take me to court and I told them go ahead. No repsponse so far and its been months.
I received a VM at work from a company called RS Legal Group and I should call them because I had a court date with them. They left me a case number. Called the number back and spoke to Mr Smith. He is pleasant. They say I owe over 900 for a credit card back from 2007 and I can pay now or they will take me to court and garnish my wages. I asked for proof of what I owe and they sent me my credit report ?
