Call came from Daisy at the "Civil Procedures Division".

I received two calls from this number today. On my cellphone and home phone asking for my maiden name which I have not used in over a decade. They claimed that they had documents to delivery to me and needed ME to call ANOTHER number to find out what and why. I then in turn asked the person their name, & location. The first person that would be Daisy told me her name then hung up when I informed her I would need the address for a police report. The second guy also refused to give me his name and just hung up.

I was harassed by these same people earlier this year. I was told I was being sued but they refused to tell me by who or why or how or anything other than they needed me to be home on a specific day to receive the "paperwork from an officer". I called my local police department to ask if this was something they do or if they had ever heard about it. I filed a complaint with them, they followed up with the number which was then out of Florida and told me to NOT speak with them again as they actually hung up on a person who called identifying themself as a police officer seeking information. I now always ask for a name and a location and then a direct phone number to their office. If a business won't give you that information they are not a business they are a scam. I actually was taken to court once over a debt I didn't realize I had and if you get a summons no one calls you first to ask if you will politely accept it. That is not a thing!

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.
