I got woken up in California by a call from this number, who are currently Mariner Group, Amherst, NY; a debt collection agency for payday loans (unk. if company name or generic category). This was a misdial. They had neither my tel number nor name in their list. They do not use an auto dialer [computer]. Here's what irritated me more than their mistake and usual debt collector's aggression -- Their spiel starts with "we are calling about a judgment against you." This is incorrect, bordering on fraud, for a debt collector to claim without an actual court judgment or order. Their rep confirmed it is only a debt collection without court judgment. This company is operating under several names and the debt that they tried to collect from me was not valid after contacting the original creditor who was Everest Cash Advance. They have only one collection agency and it is not these people. This company is running out of Amherst NY and going under several different names. Hartford Management Group, LLC/The Cambridge Group, Mariner & Associates, LLC, and Elite Payment Solutions, LLC. There address is 3840 East Robinson Road Suite 243, Amherst NY 14228. I am currently reporting them to the BBB, the FTC, the USPS inspection service and also contacting my attorney to seek legal advice on what rights I have to file a suit against these people. Did you ever get served with any papers? At Judy: What a helpful comment.It's a collection agency that specializes in defaulted payday loans. Mariner and Associates, formerly known as Cambridge. I spoke to this Fabio guy today. HE refused to give me any information about the company Mariners Associates address phone or fax numbers. He said he didnt have this information that administration had it he couldnt mail it to me but he could email it to me..............still waiting!!! I originally spoke to a Ms. Kingston, after I told her I needed their info including their debt collectors licence she transferred me to her supervisor Fabio. I have received several calls from them and other so called collection agencies. Each time they said I owed a pay day loan they changed the date and year when I told them that the account was not even open when they stated the money was deposited into the bank account. Several times they called and said they were on their way to serve me papers, I told them to come on I would be home waiting for them ; guess what I have been served yet. Last week I received a call about a payday loan on a made up bank account from 2010. I told them stop calling, you keep saying you are going serve papers, serve the damn papers and don't call back we will settle this in court, I am ready for you. They hung up in my face. This nothing but a scam to get your bank info and clean out your account. I have waited 10 times or more to have papers served and have not gotten them yet. I reported them to MS State Attorney General Office, FTC and BBB. Every time it is a different company calling. I keep a written record with date, company, phone # and each time they say I made a payday loan; also make sure I write down the name of the person I am speaking to., OH, yes this is a good one they even accused my wife of doing it if I didn't do or it had to be one of my children that did it..Watch out for them, they just trying to get your money. SCAM, SCAM!! Then if they are not calling for me they are calling for one of my sons and even calls his mother's cell number. She told them my sons may give out my home phone but not my cell and do not call it again, they got smart and told her they would call anytime they want. I will not give you her response because it was not pleasant at all. Don't pay any of them a copper penny unless they provide you proof that you owe this and please give no BANK info. You never receive any type of letter like you do from other companies you owe. Just think about that.
