I got this call several times a day from this number, but when the called is returned it says "Verizon Wireless" caller is no longer in service". If you answer there will be a bunch of noise in the background like telemarketers, but later on the number will be disconnected just to keep you from seeing who is calling you.

Rec'd a call again today, (rec'd one yesterday) saying I was going to be arrested at 2:00 pm yesterday and so were my Mother and my daughter. This person had their names. Today's call was the woman, who evidently makes the calls and then if you dispute what she is saying, she gives you to her "supervisor". I did not return todays call, but yesterday I supposedly spoke with an Attorney who told me of my pending arrest. He also told me to shut up and quit asking stupid questions when I tried to get some info from him. I have reported this to the Federal Trade Commission, but who knows if anything will get done about them. Yesterdays call was from a different phone number, 323-207-7414. They said they were calling from Excel Law Group-Cashnet.

lm on our voicemail for my wife who has filled out payday loans. I knwo this is a scam and talked to FTC, Cosumer aganey in my state as well as local sheriffs office. Watch your accounts,, they do have it from whomever sold it to them. Also, I did return call to totally different call back number and asked for Andrew Smith, he got on the phone and said, Yeah. I told him I was returning his call for my client. He said "you are an attorney?" I said yes and he hung up. Their numbers change and have in the past, even a shady collection firm doesn't change their callback # every week. Don't be scared, they can't arrest you for a civil action , one day they threatened arrest and hauled to the courthouse at 11. Good luck.

I have also been getting phone calls from this 941-961-8518, saying they are w/Cashnet. The lady keeps telling me I have big problems. I asked if I owed her money and she said no, so I asked what she wanted and she kept saying something about an unpending loan??, it was really hard to understand her. She transferred me to her supervisor and he started yelling at me asking if I had a hearing impairment because I couldn't understand them. He requested my lawyers information. I told him that if he could tell me why he was calling we could resolve the issue right now. He said no I'm just going to call your supervisor and tomorrow you will see when we come to your work and then maybe you will understand then. He was extremly rude to me.

Please spread this. It's important that people are educated on this scam as it has begun to become popular. This particular group began in 2007. The have used over a hundred different phone numbers and at least a dozen different company/agency names. I will list a few below. They are from Asia Pacific and have never even stepped foot on American soil. However, they are terrorizing and scamming Americans out of their money. Even if you did have a payday loan and have not paid it back, they are not authorized to collect that debt. They claim that they work for/with Cashnet, however they do not. They have an inside source in which they paid for applicant's information that has been submitted for loans. So whether you applied for a loan and never got it, or if you applied and did get it, your information has been sold to these scam artists. DO NOT PAY THEM, and do not entertain them. Once they feel that they've scared you, they target you. If they conclude that they won't be getting any money from you, they drop you and move on to the next target. I hope this information helps. I've been investigating this group for quite some time now and thanks to these posts I'm able to continue tracking them. I've worked diligently to have them stopped, however I've only been able to get them to stop using the same phone numbers and company/agency names.

Some of their aliases:
Officer Andy Brown, Randy Brown, Darren Stifler, Ken Stiller, Roy Campbell, Sean Miller

Some of their company/agency aliases:
United Processing of Law
Bahamas Marketing Group (BMG)
Department of Law & Investigations
Oakview Law Offices
*** they sometime claim to be police officers, paralegals and "representatives of law"***


Some of their phone numbers (listed are the most recent. As I stated they have used over a hundred different numbers and cannot list all. Keep in mind these numbers are stolen and used through a VOIP Voice Op IP system)
646-506-9441
646-395-1276
646-918-5364
901-328-9974
347-438-3332
562-286-5777
912-344-9400
408-404-3021
941-961-8518
213-231-1900

Also, you can find other numbers they've used within this thread.

Hope this helps. Remember, they are scam artists from over seas. If they were in the US they would have been shut down by the Federal Trade Commision a long time ago.

These people just contacted my wife which has never left the state of WV since turning the age of 18. Stated that she is in a legal mess and that she needed to call them back before she has to go court. Well other sites stated to call the FBI and tell them that you are targeted by these people for extortion. Another stated to call Secret Service about the issue. The number I've looked up is from AT&T company phone. Personally I say to tell them to send you a letter in the mail, if they ask for your home address tell them that if they found your number they can find your address.. but try asking for theirs as well. haha

I have had the similar call - Amanda Black has called from 941-961-8518 to call 213-550-4189.(business name is Cashnet) I called back an gentleman who rude starts telling me I need to send half of 1085.00 and they will release documents showing what this bill is all about. He has a very heavy accent (Indian I believe)They ask for if I have an attorney and if I'd like the attorney can call and handle - I did call an attorney because they threaten jail, calling my employer telling them I have committed fraud. I explained send me documentation and I will review this. He just continues to yell. So, I have filed a compliant with the State Attorney Office, Better Business Bureau even told my immediate supervisor and reported this indicent to a family lawyer who said if they call again tell them to call me. I have also had my number blocked. I think this is a scam and they are going to pressure those they can into sending them money. Again, I told show me a bill but they refuse to send any documentation.

An Amanda Black from "Monetary Crime Division" called my work number and threatened that i would be arrested at 11am tomorrow morning if i did not call back and would be in jail for 7 months for not paying on a payday loan. She had a heavy Indian accent. When i called the number i was given back, a man with a Indian accent in a very loud room started yelling at me that my phone was breaking up. So i ended the call. The 2 numbers i gathered from this call are 941-961-8518and 714-333-2947
