  1. This company has been calling mine and my husbands extended family for the past week saying that they have a warrant out for my husbands arrest and that if he doesn’t call them back within 3 hours they’re going to serve him with papers. He called the number back, and they said they are trying to collect on a debt, but wouldn’t tell him what the debt was for. They just called my home phone 3 times in a row, and screamed at me to “stop lying to them” and that they needed to know if I was home to sign for legal papers for my husband. We have filed a complaint with the ftc on them.

    • Here is what you can do. Call the local court house and ask them to look to see if there has been a lawsuit filed against you. They can’t serve a summons without first filing a lawsuit.

      If there is no lawsuit, then, what’s that tell you?

      • Checked it out that there isn’t any type of lawsuit or anything against us. The last time they called I told them the call was being recorded upon the advice of my attorney and they immediately hung up on me.

          • Steve, in my state (Connecticut), some suits are actually served on the defendant and then filed by the plaintiff with the court (this shows the court that the defendant has notice of the suit before it is filed with the court).  ‘Summer’ and her husband also have rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and should find a local attorney to help her file suit against Universal.  You can find a good consumer law attorney by going to the website of the National Association of Consumer Advocates, http://www.naca.net.   It sounds like threats are Universal Filing’s m.o. and they should be sued to learn their lessons.
