THIS TOOK PLACE ON JUNE 11, 2014:
Catherine Stein called my place of employment and my boss happened to answer the phone. (Not good at all!) Catherine stated she is having some type of summons delivered to my place of employment. She claimed to be with Dallas Municipal or something to that effect. I called the number given (855-879-0869) and some very rude guy answered the phone. (Never a good sign when the person answering the phone is rude right off the bat.) I asked for Catherine Stein then he asked me for her ext. She did not give my boss an ext. number. He went on about some other nonsense and was obnoxious through out the exchange. I told him I'll deal with this on my own and hung up. In googling this phone number, nothing can be found. In googling Catherine Stein and Dallas Municipal, nothing can be found. I've had the same cell phone number for over 10 yrs. so I'm puzzled as to the reason for this call. (It just so happens I have received a few other calls like this since purchasing my new vehicle. So this is all very suspicious.)
Caller type: Scammer
Caller: Catherine Stein
Company: for Pinnacle Litigation Group
Catherine Stein left a message on my cell phone today again stating I was going to be served at my place of employment with a court summons. (How odd after I made my original post and then some uninformed individual claimed it's all legit, that I then I get a call on my cell. I would not be surprised if said person is with the scamming co.) Anyway, I called back and spoke to a gentleman. He claimed Catherine Stein is an attorney and was unavailable, but he could assist me even though he's not an attorney. I asked him what this was for and he stated it's for a VISA card from 2004. How odd. I never had a VISA in 2004. During our conversation, he stated that he IS an attorney even though he claimed he wasn't in the beginning of the call. I asked him the name of his co. and he never gave it to me. Instead he stated they work for Pinnacle Litigation Group. I then went on to say this whole situation is very strange and I will be contacting the F.T.C. and hung up. I have filed a complaint with the F.T.C. and now I will file another one today.
