Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
yes...someone called me today stating that I had some outstanding debts from companies who were now submitting a "class action suit" against me.... I asked who these companies were - he would not disclose the company names... he said that I needed to pay them or I would be arrested.... I just finished a bankruptcy in 2011 - I told him I needed the names to give to my attorney to research.. He got sarcastic stating "...oh so your attorney will come down here to Florida?..." and hung up stating I would arrested.... This is pretty upsetting... but he was very unprofessional .. he stated he was an attorney in Florida...
no...he sounded foreign and was so sarcastic as I tried to make sense of this surprising call... I asked for the name of the company(s) that he represented and he just kept saying all the trade laws that had been broken..saying it really fast... when I asked him to slow down so I could write information down- that's when he said "...you're just gonna get arrested...have a nice day." wow... I can't tell you how that made me feel.... but just could not believe what I was hearing
thank you so much... I was devastated...but I am now convinced that this was the case....evil people are always at work... but I will tell him if calls back that the police will be called. thank you so much... The money I spent to talked to you was well worth the peace of mind...
