Fabio from Mariner Associates left me a message earlier letting me know that he is just about done filing the paperwork and will be sending it to the county I live in?? Also to go ahead and let my attorney know about this....Seriously!!!! These people are a joke. I have no idea what this phone call was in regards to. I called the number back and recording says to dial certain extension numbers depending if there is a wage garnishment, lien, etc. What a joke, I pushed 0 and a man answered the phone and would only say that they are located in New York, would not give me any other info until I confirmed my social security number. I let him know that I was filing a complaint w/FTC and he told me good luck and hung up on me. I have no idea what this supposed collection is about but I have never received anything in the mail from any collection agency so I'll assume these people are scammers. You are full of s*** ucg...upg...apr associates 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. If this company is harassing you please give our office a call for a free consultation. We are investigating this type of debt harassment. Find out what your rights are! 951-293-4187. I received a message on my cell phone from this number and was told there was a judgment against me and they are going ahead with the lwsuit and i have to contact them right away or my lawyer can contact them. I get about ten calls from that number a day!!!!! 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.
