Customer Question
There is someone calling...

There is someone calling me continuously, several times per day, claiming "your name is ***** ***** a questionable or illegal financial transaction. Press 1 to speak to a court mediator." Then they are insulting and demanding and say they know my bank account number, etc. and I said if they thought I owed them money, send me the documentation in the mail. I have received nothing in the mail. They said they sent it email and they will see me in court. I think it's a scam. I don't know what it could be.

Lawyer's Assistant: OK. The Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?

No, but i have not received any kind of notification from anyone other than phone calls saying the same thing.

Lawyer's Assistant: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Lawyer can help you best. Is there anything else important you think the Lawyer should know?

I literally told you everything I know other than the phone number reverse look up shows it's a woman in Georgia doing the calling.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
