A collector with an Indian accent called us and told us that my husband would be arrested if we did not forward our attorney information immediately and all of our legal releases…”and may God help you.” He said that we were being charged with check fraud for a payday loan that our bank rejected, and now we were legally liable for the funds. It scared the heck out of us. He said that his name was Attny Baxter Koop. His telephone number was (310) 547-8686.
Consumer Action Taken:
I know that I owe them no money. I have received no money from them, so I owe them nothing. They have no legal basis for their threats.
This is becoming a widespread scam. It is completely uncertain if the claim they make that you borrowed money from American Web Loan is real at all. These fake collectors are using the names of payday companies and attorneys, often without their knowledge. See this article for details on how this all works.
