No, that isn't the type of case that would involve a restraining order.

Have you ever gotten an internet loan, a payday loan, or visited an online pharmacy?
payday loans and internet loan
There are a lot of scams going around right now where you get a call like this and they state they have issued a warrant, they have filed a lawsuit, etc. It is purely a scam and someone at these companies are selling customer information to the scammers. That is almost certainly what this is. If they call back they will probably tell you something similar and try to get you to send them money, usually by Western Union, Green Dot card, or Money Pak. However, it is absolutely a scam.
Ok Thank you for your time.
You're very welcome. Just be sure you don't send them any money no matter what they say.
Ok if i have any more question i will get back with you
Best wishes to you on this and please don't forget to leave a Positive Rating (of course I’d suggest Excellent!) so I get credit for my work.
