A few months ago someone called from a blocked number saying that they were with Civil Procedures Division, and that they have been trying to serve me legal papers. The "server" gave me a telephone number to call. I called the number and they tried to get me to pay money for an unpaid balance from a Check & Go account, I have never, ever been there. They continued to try to scare me into paying something, but I told them to serve me and I would get a lawyer. Needless to say they did not call me back about that . It is totally a scam. However I now look up all numbers that come to my phone and now they are calling from different locations, even local numbers here in Houston.

We have been getting calls from these people on and off for months now from 5 different phone numbers. Always the same script. Always the same unknown name they ask for. Always the same, dead voices at the other end. And we always tell THEM the same thing. This time I decided to have some fun with them because speaking reasonably does not work. I asked this Bruce fellow if he had access to Google. He stammered a little and finally said "Yes". I told him to google the number he is calling from as well as the name of the company he "works" for and he will see that everyone online KNOWS that this is not legitimate and that they really need to stop calling. He got in a huff and angrily said, "Well, maybe it USED to be a scam...maybe it was a scam when you people took out loans for furniture and didn't pay them back! Maybe we need to start asking the REAL questions! Thank you!" And then he slammed down the phone.

I have reported all other numbers to the FTC and my Attorney General. I have informed these people of this a number of times and yes, the calls have slowed from daily to maybe once a week. It's still not good, but it is a start. We all NEED to tell these people that we know it is a scam. We NEED to report them all to the FTC and , most importantly, to our State's Attorney. I will be reporting this NEW number now as well.

And to "Bruce Williams", if you DID take my advice to looked some of this stuff up and you ARE reading this, you had better believe that your name will be all over my report. You people are crooks and liars and are taking advantage of desperate people during tough times and you should be ashamed.

Remember people: These calls are NOT real. They are a scam. The serving of legal papers is NOT preceded by a phone call by people who do not even have the right name or number for the people they are looking for. Nor do they have any other information. They are merely fishing. They cannot rightfully request money from you, they can NOT threaten you with arrest and I can promise you that NO legal papers will be served by these people. There is absolutely no basis in reality with these calls.

Be brave and, most importantly, be SMART. Do NOT give them any information. Report them to the FTC and your State Attorney and do not take any lip from them.
