Fake Debt Collectors

Update: Found this detail on Free Press for reporting: "To report a problem, call the Michigan Department of Human Services Adult Protective Services' 24-hour hotline at 800-996-6228.

Original Post:

Strange call, my dad received a phone call from some Law Firm. First day my parents said it was a lady then next day it was a guy and another day when i picked up the phone it was a guy, who transferred me to another supervisor guy than a lawyer guy.

The guy was persistent that my parents took a cash out at some advance america or some store.

He kept telling we are suing you (your parents) for money. When asked when the money was taken out he said two months ago and i said two months, in two months you decided to sue without red letters or debt collectors letter or any kind of letter first? He was keep giving me that we are a Law Firm from Texas and what not and it will be over $4000 if you don't settle it now over the phone and blah blah...

when i kept asking for more and more information the guy finally stopped calling... after three days of conversations with me...

i tried researching to report these as harassment calls but sadly i knew it was fake debt collectors, but i didn't have a proof, well may be three calls are not proof by some standards, hmmm i think that guy kind of gave me fake promise to mail me all the detail papers to home address that he so vehemently telling me this is your address and this is the name. Sadly, i just have to wait to get some paper to file report... which never came in the mail...

Senior citizens are always take up for not being sure of something... i wish the consumer advocate groups do more outreach to senior citizens to tell them their rights and how to deal with fake callers and fake debt collectors.

Series: Part 1 - Put your domains to work for you

Have you registered domains and don’t know what to do with them? Or did you registered the domains with hyphens or numbers rather than word so that others may not steal your brand? Well now you have a solution to use those domains and put your domains to work for you.In this series I will be posting many solutions for you so that you can pick and choose the solution that works for you.The first and simplest solution is to have a landing page with basic text. Second, to put the landing page to work for you, you need to add a some links, and these could be called referral links or affiliates text links or banner links. As for as the rules and best practices of posting referral links or affiliates links, I will have to post an entire blog on the topic. For now, set up your domain to have a landing page, a page which is not the default from your domain registrar. Yes this may involve you to setup a webhosting account, but don’t worry now a days, companies like GoDaddy and other registrar’…

Google Mail Hangout Message Upon Delete Action

Don't know if I get annoyed this much as the Google's Mail Hangout Message, when I select to delete number or messages.

"Because some are part of a Hangout, they have been removed from your Mail mailbox, but will still show up in other Hangouts apps and chat windows."

The message takes over the entire tool bar, and does not allow me to repeat the actions, it does not goes away until way late and would have appreciated but not allowed is a option to close. If I want to delete more items on the same page than i have to refresh the window to repeat the task.

Wish the future update can allow me to close this message.
