Today one of my employees got at call from Daniel Jones 855-846-4572 stating that he was going to have her arrested and take her to court if she did not pay $1921 via western union by 1 PM.If she didn't pay the money, he would take her to court for $10,000.
Now, my employee is 23 yrs old and got very scared. I on the other hand, am not that easily scared. I have been in collections for 15 years and knew something wasn't right. When she got off the phone I asked her what was wrong.
She told me what he said and I immediately knew something wasn't right. I CALLED HIM BACK! He didn't even ask me to verify any of "my" information, he just started telling me he was going to see me at the courthouse for me to get an attorney. In the process of me YELLING at him and telling him there is no way this is legitimate because he WOULD not provide me with the date, time and amount of money that was supposedly borrowed, he threatened my job, threatened to call my boss (who was me) and tell them of my fraudulent activities.
Major indication that this is a scam. In the midst of all the yelling I did get him to give me the information to where I needed to send the payment. He gave me the Western Union information of Beatrice Regalado in Philadelphia, PA. Now, no one in their right mind should ever send a payment for a bill to an individual.
I called him out on that and he just got more ugly and more rude. He has met his match. I needed to unload on someone!! So, he hung up on me!.
Then a few minutes later he called my employee back on her cell phone'. We sound nothing alike.. I had her put him on speaker phone and he asked for my attorney information.. I gave him the name of "Duey Cheatem & How" with a fax # but no phone number/.
He said he needed the phone number/. I told him no, send the information and my attorney will contact me'. He then proceeded to threaten me by calling my boss and telling them what I had done,.
(Again, still didn't know it wasn't her he was talking to, but in fact her boss!) TOTAL SCAM!!!This guy never once provided either one of us with any actual information about the "money owed" just a random amount and the $10,000 that he would see me at the "courthouse" for. 300203e
