This is a scam collection agency. The callers have a thick African accent. They threaten to send the police to arrest you if you do not give them money to pay the bill they have in collections in your name. They actually have your name, address, and social security number. DO NOT let them know that the information they have about you is correct. Report this to your local police.
This company sent a letter which I have received 3 others and ignored, this time it said it was a collection agency collecting a dept for the U.S. treasury on a bond that was cashed and over paid. I did cash some savings bonds a year ago. They new the dates of the cashed bonds and other information. They verified with me my info by telling me what they had and then I Said it was correct. I did not actually give the info to them they already and it, so it seemed legit, After I hung up I looked up the company and # and there were several comments NOT TO GIVE INFO THAT IT WAS A SCAM. How can it be that online you can find out its a scam but its not been shut down by the gov.
