I've heard of this bankruptcy (it arises out of Texas) so that is not a scam in and of itself. It's possible that someone could be contacting you and trying to scam you, but I doubt it. Rather, you're probably being contacted because you were once a contractee of this company, and it's likely that your contact information is still on the book. As a previous contractee, it's possible that you still have a claim against the company, and as such you're required to be given notice of the bankruptcy so you can put in any possible claims and object to any potential asset distributions and plans. It doesn't mean that you do have a claim, but rather they determined that it's possible that you might, so you need to be given notice of the bankruptcy. The website for the bankruptcy trustee
is here: http://lphitrustee.com/. If you go to that site, you can find the contact information so that you can contact the trustee to determine why you were contacted and if they reference you as having some claim. You likely don't. But you should still use that contact information rather than the information given you on the phone (assuming that that information is different) because if scammers are contacting you, they're not going to be using that legitimate phone number and contact information that I referenced. Basically as they purchased the life insurance policy from you, it was a policy that referenced you and you were connected with. It was a "receivable" on their side (a potential asset) that would only mature by action on your part (namely your death). So that's why you were likely contacted. Again, it doesn't mean that you do have a claim, but as it's possible that you might, in the abstract, they were required to contact you and give you notice of the bankruptcy filing. Hope that clears things up a bit. If you have any other questions, please let me know. If not, and you have not yet, please rate my answer AND press the "submit" button, if applicable.
