I just checked my phone messages...and a man with a middle eastern accent....said that I had been reported to them....and that if I did not pay them money....I would be prosecuted and thrown in jail. They said I had to call them back.

They knew my name and phone number...but nothing else. I didn't call them back and I certainly won't give them more information about myself.

Also....I don't owe any money to anyone.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Just another bottom feeder preying on the innocent.

Don't worry. If they do call again, ask for a number to call them back at their home. They'll give up.

Peace

interesting , was it a text or a legitimate phone call, the reason i ask is because i also received a phone call around 8 a.m this morning from a 240 number i didn't recognize, they left me a voice mail but it was too garbled to understand so i called (whoever it was) back and a middle eastern sounding women(not trying to start shi*, just the best way to state it) answered the phone said something very fast and then please hold.. i hung up after that. weird...

They left a voice mail...and I could hear many other voices in the background.....and some people were yelling. It sounded like some sort of a call center. The man said I was supposed to call him back and then left no number to call.

Thank you for your reassurance....I googled CFS & Associates....and many others have received calls too saying they owed money...that they don't owe. All the calls seem to be from people with middle eastern accents.

I get calls like this all the time at my business. I just laugh, call them @$$ Holes and hang up. Not once have they called back.


I like the ones that ask "May I speak to the owner please?" I ask them to name the owner and as they never can, I tell them to %!&@^!.... (BTW, I'm the owner)


Don't worry...

there are companies that buy old debt. they will have phone workers try to collect from every file in every folder, disregarding the fact that you paid the dentist 12 years ago, or whatever it was that got your name in a file.

it's a numbers game. if they call 200 people in one 8 hour shift and 20 pay without question, debts under $500 still add up quickly.

there are scam companies that send false invoices to large companies. they only need to luck in to a few offices where people rubber-stamp payment approval without matching up to order/invoice number and they have a nice yearly income for doing almost nothing.

others contact people, claiming your motor vehicle was the cause of an accident and that you left the scene. they will be willing to let it go for $350 say, to cover repairs. yeah right.

if these people put their time into legitimate work they would probably make more money and grow a real company. but common sense is not a strong point for criminal minds.

if these people continue to bother you just inform them you will turn over the matter to your legal counsel if the harassment does not cease immediately. then call the Better Business Bureau and tell them what is taking place, how many times they called, when, etcetera.
