The Real Ones Were Bad Enough!

September 7, 2010

As if these days the real collection agencies were not harassing consumers enough, we now have fake collection agencies causing havoc in people’s lives–and usually the weakest/poorest get hit the hardest.

Some victims who contacted Madigan’s office reported that the collection calls appear to have originated from outside the country.

Other tip-offs that the call is a con are statements suggesting the collections agent is somehow affiliated with a law-enforcement agency or that those being called will be arrested if they don’t pay right away.

Madigan’s office said the fraudsters are using several company names, including Morgan & Associates; Federal Bureau of Investigators; DNR Recovery; DNI Recovery; Legal Accounts Association; Department of Law and Enforcement; CashNet USA; America Legal Services; Quick Cash; and ACS.

“Although many of these names are fake, some are names of legitimate businesses that the purported debt collectors may be using without permission,” Madigan’s office said in a press release.
