Phone scam! A male called me from from two numbers: 208-968-7990 was the number he used last week, and now he is using 206-430-5427. He is using high-pressure tactics to try and coerce money from me to settle a payday loan he claimed I took out two years ago. I have never taken out a payday loan, much less defaulted on one. He was abusive and volatile throughout the calls, and evasive when I probed for details. He claimed to have received my file from Titan Group LLC and threatened me with a felony arrest for bank fraud, and kept telling me I'd "have my day in court." Just to repeat myself, I never took out a payday loan. He kept telling me to keep up my pretense and I would be served at work with the paperwork. He also kept offering a secondary explanation to my denial; I must have forgotten, but he was here to help. He claimed the balance owed was over $1600, but would settle with me, today, for $795. The only thing that gave his claims any credibility was that he had a few details about me: my name, the name of my employer, the last four numbers of my SSN, the name of my bank, and, obviously, my phone number. I know this is a scam because, well, I never took out a payday loan, but also because he stumbled all over himself when I pressed for more information. Additionally, he broke the fairness in debt collecting act (or whatever it's called) by threatening me, telling me I committed a crime, not giving me any details, and telling me that he would contact my employer. These are all against the law. Lastly, I checked my credit report and no such inquiry was listed, nor has ever been listed. If I had an outstanding collection for the last two years, it would have been reported, methinks. He was pretty rude - so much so that he became unbelievable, but still a little frightening. I called the local police and will call the BBB.

Left a voicemail indicating some vague "legal matter" that was "urgent", and "important". I'm pretty sure if it's legit that they'd leave an actual name contact instead of the number.
They say they are North American Credit, then they ask for personally identifiable information. They do not say what it is for, and they say they sent a letter which I did not receive. When I refuse to give them my PII, they politely say - we will call back when we can identify you. I tell them to stop calling, but they do not listen. Three phone calls received so far, and quite annoying.
