I received a call about how they tried to deliver a package and couldn't.. So I called back to see what this was all about. They just sent me around and then told me I owed a debt from 2012, and if I didn't pay it they were sending it to their court system. Me being the person I am freaked out and gave them my debit card number. Which was later canceled. They told me their business name was LZM and that the place I owed was called QC?? This was the first I heard about it, but in 2010-2012 I was in major debt so I believed it to be true. I researched the number and it had no information about the place. Please don't do what I did.. this is a HUGE scam. I'm still waiting on the email saying with all of the information. I called them back and asked a million questions. I honestly feel its a huge scam going on, and idiots like me believe them. They never asked me to verify anything.. which should have been my first red flag. Do I report this to the local police?

Telling me to pay $2000.00
Feb 5, 2016
Monetary Loss: $0
They called 6 different times. Said I had tax fraud from 2004 and 2009 and I owed them money or I would lose my house, car and freeze my bank account unless I would go to the rite aid or dollar general and get four (4) green dot visa cards in the amount of $500.00 each and the would have a bondsman come and pick them up. They said don't call the police or any atty. or I would be apprehended and go to prison and I was being watched. They said how long would it take me and I said about an hour and they said go now and "do NOT hang up your phone", I would be monitored. Scared me, so I called the sheriff's office and they told me it was a scam and to report it on IRS.Gov. I have the number on my caller ID and it was a man with a definite accent, no name. I'm sure he will call back, he knew my address. He called again, while I was talking to the sheriff's office and I didn't switch over to answer. Now I am afraid to answer my phone.
I had received several phone call from these people. They didn't give me any direct addresses or information in writing staying supposedly how much I owed from pay day loans, which I never received anything. There was also threats of court summons and jail time. When I received a call from a Federal Crime Stopper I immediately asked for something in writing I hung up and immediately called NC Attorney General and Better Business Bureau. They instantly told me it was a scam and if I really had any debt I would receive something in the mail or the I.R.S. would contact me. I just wanted to report these people so other people wouldn't get scared or worried about these scams.

Called to tell me I owe a Payday loan and they were going to garnish my pay
Feb 9, 2016
Monetary Loss: $0
Called to tell me I owe a Payday loan and they were going to garnish my pay. Knew my Name, Where I use to bank with, and my place of employment. Said I owed 1490 but the balance is only 350.15 and If I paid the 350 today it would resolve the issue immediately. I asked what company says I owe this debt and she couldn't give me the information. I requested written validation as I do not have any debt I know of and I know they cant garnish my pay without a court order
Was contacted buy a Joseph Lane claiming he was to take my son to court for fraud on a bad check. what's going to prosecute for misrepresentation fraud claiming that he had used my name and phone number to obtain a loan. None of which was true.
