How to Deal with Fake Collection Calls
Recently I received phone calls from several of my clients. They have contacted me indicating that they’re receiving phone calls from collection companies and from creditors who indicate that they’re going to contact the police and have them arrested if they don’t make payment to them within 24 hours. There are a great many collection scams going on out there. Do not make payments to individuals who are not willing to identify themselves or indicate who they are representing or, for that matter, seem to indicate that they’re trying to collect from somebody or for somebody that you’ve never heard of before and don’t believe that you owe money to. Contact your attorney before you do anything. Go online. Check them out. You’ll find that there are a great many people out there just like you that are receiving the same type of inquiries and those are scams. Stay away from them. Do not give them any money.
