Consumer Complaint: I was contacted on XX/XX/2018 By a company that said they were collecting on behalf of XXXX XXXX. I once had an account with XXXX and it had been paid off. Come to find out after looking at XXXX XXXX I owe them {$81.00}.

This woman XXXX from Critical Resolutions Mediation or XXXX XXXX XXXX as per my bank statement … she started rattling off my personal information. All the address I have ever lived at, my social security number, my date of birth, my drivers license number. They said they were in the process of suspending my license with the DMV and going to press felony charges against me and also garnish my wages by XXXX XXXX because of this debt I owed to XXXX. I supposedly owed them {$1600.00} but they would settle for {$800.00} to keep me out of jail. I never had a call like this and believed them because they new all my personal info. Said if I wanted to see my kids again, that I would settle this up before I hung up the phone or they would process all this paperwork.

After falling for this SCAM, I googled the company XXXX XXXX XXXX out of XXXX GA, and also Critical Resolution Mediation in XXXX NC, and both companies came up as a scam. I didn’t know that debt collectors couldn’t threaten you, I have never had a debt. I didn’t even know this was on my credit until I checked this morning.
When I checked my credit report XXXX did show up with {$81.00} and the debit collector was XXXX XXXX XXXX out of XXXX KS. Not these con artists …

Anyways they took my credit card info and said I had to make 3 payments to pay off the {$800.00}. They took the first payment already and I tried to get my bank to stop it and they can’t.
Please don’t fall for this scam as I did. Now I’m out {$270.00} and I hope they find the horrible people that rip people off.
These are the names, email address, and phone numbers that harassed me. They even called my children on their cell phones at school and told them I was going to go to jail if I didn’t call them.
