My parents just got a call from Legal Mediation Law Group, threatening to file against me in court for bank fraud I work for a bank and know I've not done any such thing I have been targeted for a few years by scammers asking to be paid for things that were paid more than 10 years ago. Happens every few months

Lawyer's Assistant: Were the police contacted? Were any fraud charges filed?

None that I am aware of

This type of call does not sound legit to me. Should I be worried. They have left a number, accused me of bank fraud and threatened to file in multiple courts. Back in 2007 I had a few payday loans which were paid off. But since then, every now and then I get calls like this or my family does. Have never had it attached to my credit report nor anything in the mail.

I would proceed with caution and not provide them with any information. You can call them back and see what they have to say. What happens, is that these scammer obtain old information and try and use it against you. You can press them to send you something in writing, to validate the debt and money owed and see how they respond. I would not be worried at this time, since bank fraud is criminal, so charges would have been filed years ago and if anything, a civil lawsuit would be filed, if they think they can collect. If you know that the payday loans were paid off, I have a feeling this is what they will try and use against you and if they do, hang up and ignore them.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
