This is extortion dressed as debt collection. Could be the usual US lawbreaker or a fake collector from South Asia. Try to get a business name and share it with the readers. By federal law this name cannot be withheld.

On 800Notes in the ''Debt Collection Calls'' forum is a thread titled ''Fake payday loan collection scams - Please list new numbers here [2]''. My notes and advice on the payday loan collection thugs from Oct 2011 can be seen on the lead page.

It's a recorded message that gives me an affidavit number and tells me to contact my attorney. I deleted the message.
