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.
