I was left a voice message on my phone while I had stepped outside from a company called JAA at phone number 877-390-0059, stating that mail they had sent to my address was returned to sender. I have never received anything from this company. The message gave me a reference number and a telephone number to another company called Jacob Alexander & Associates. A few minutes later, my sister called saying someone from Jacob Alexanders office called her and I had used my sisters name as a reference ( I have no idea how that got my sisters phone number) I called the number back and the man said he had to look up my account and needed to verify my identity, and he stated the last 4 digits of my SS #. I told him I was not comfortable with this, he said it was the only way to verify it was me. I verified that he had the correct 4 digits. He than said I had an outstanding debt and that they were mediators. That the debt was from a Visa card from 17 years ago, If I didn't pay resolve the debt I would be taken to court and have my wages garnished or lien placed against me. I told the gentleman that he needs to send me a copy of the debt and the information by mail. He said, he could email it, I told him I was not comfortable with that, it needs to be mailed by the U.S. Postal service, he said they don't do that, only by email or phone. He told me they could take me to court, I told him to take me to court, because I need it sent by mail and I will not do this by email and I hung up. About 1/2 hour later I got another call, this time it was a woman from Jacob Alexander and Assc. office, I didn't even respond, I simply hung up. I literally received 3 phone calls in under 1 hour from these people. I believe this is some kind of scam, what law office or mediation firm doesn't place anything in writing and send it by certified mail when it is regarding a possible lawsuit.

Attempt to collect fraudulent debt claim

• Aug 01, 2023

A female with this company attempted to retrieve personal information from me by phone, and by phoning close family members without stating the nature of their inquiries in a disrespectful manner.

• Jul 29, 2023

Impersonating AVS (which isn't even a debt collector) claiming I had a debt to repay but wouldn't answer any of my questions in what the call was in regards to (ie: what company I or service I "have a debt for"). I honestly don't know if it's even helpful to report this considering the phone number is probably spoofed, but I figured I would try and do my part anyway.

Phone call stating I owe a payday loan and that if I don't pay it I will go to jail for 3 felonies and I better contact a bondsman now since bond will be expensive. I told them I do not owe any debt and then Raymond Donovan 404-537-3100 ext 113 got very angry and hung up. I called back asking for the name of the company calling me and he said that the file has been sent to the police department, good luck. No one will answer where they are getting this information from or who they are working for. I wanted to know the name of the company to report them. Beware, this is a scam!

Called several times stating I was an additional contact person for my mother and that a civil suite had been filed against her and the were trying to serve papers she had requested

• Jun 30, 2023

Bechmann and Associates contacted me, saying a third party working for them (National Processing Services) collected my information that was included in a file searching for someone (who ended up being my father). The rep told me my father owed money and the debt had been sold to their firm and they wanted to give him a chance to pay the amount. If there was refusal to pay, the rep threatened to take my father to court. The rep was willing to settle for less and willing to accept a counter offer. When we asked for documentation of the debt and proof of this debt, they were unwilling to provide any details, only high level information. The rep informed us only detailed information could be provided if we went to court. We were able to obtain an email with some information, which did include accurate personal identifiable information; however, when we asked for more detail regarding the debt, the rep began to lose his patience and was not understanding why we were questioning the legitimacy of their claim or who they were and the rep said he was done trying to negotiate and would send the file from mediation to begin legal action. I ran a credit report on behalf of my father and did not see anything in regards to their claim. In addition, there is no web presence except for the exact site the rep walked me through to get to, which was through the California Secretary of State web site, where you do a search for the business Bechmann and Associates.

The 1st dumb and [censored] scammer that called said his name was Tim Ross. He called and left a message. The 2nd dumb and ignorant scammer Nikki Jones said that she was with Mediation Bartin and Baxter Group. She had my social security number, past and current address and type of car that I drove. She said that I had a past due balance from 13 years ago with Capital One and that I owed over +$9,000.00 and if I didn't pay they would garnish my wages, court, jail, etc. But if I paid them $2,000.00 now that they wouldn't start court proceedings. I told the dumb, clueless scammer that I didn't have a credit card with Capital one and I didn't owe anything. She persisted and said that I did. She said that I had 24 hours to pay. I hung up and didn't call back. That's when I googled the number and found this website with similar stories. TOTAL SCAM!

I received a call from a woman stating that I need to call a number she provided for a legal matter. It’s being taken to civil court tomorrow, and she could not disclose any other information, and that I needed to call the number. She gave me a reference number. She said if I don’t call it’ll go to court and I’ll be served paper at my home (she knew my address). I called the number, a man answered and told me I’m being taken to court over a credit card debt. Told me I owed 1400 and the minimum he could drop it down too was 430 but it had to be paid today. He then told me he could put a 48 hour hold on it, and he will call me in 2 days for the payment. I received a letter the same day in the mail about the account being transferred to collections and to contact them directly regarding the account now. I reached out to the debt collectors who my account was transferred too, and they don’t even have that account in their system yet.

They had my social, addresses but wrong email and phone numbers -other than my cell that they called on claiming that I have a credit card from 13 years ago that was not paid off and that I will now get something from an attorney in the mail because I did not choose to mediate. I called back by blocking my number and somehow the same person that I spoke to days prior answered the phone and knew it was me even though I blocked the call. They have all of my info. I blocked by credit report- any suggestions on next steps to secure my info?

I received a call on my cell phone and my work phone and my mother received a call which is transcribed below. The caller had no information regarding what this was about. I called the number requested for a Martin Baxter Group and was advised that in 2002 I had a Capital One Credit Card that was not paid and they are using the "tolling agreement" in the contract to pursue recovery. I have never had a credit card with them, nor have I ever had unpaid credit card. I also have never had this account on my credit repot. I called Capital One and they said they I never had an account with them. They refused to provide me any information on who sent this debt to be collected citing an "NDA" with the acquisitions company and told me if I didn't pay in arbitration suit would be filed however they could not provide me with the info for the attorney that would allegedly be handling this suit.They also said it was verified byt experian however I just ran an experian report and it is also not there so this Martin and Baxter Co is clearly assisting their client in commiting fraud.

Getting random text messages from different phone numbers containing personal info such as my address, claiming I owe money for a service that I’ve never heard of or used.

- Buckeye, AZ, USA • May 16, 2023

The scammer called my husband and claimed that he owed $3,212 in medical debt from West Valley Hospital from an ER visit in 2017. I contacted West Valley Hospital and confirmed I have no outstanding balance or debt from any member in my family, nor did I ever visit the ER in 2017. The name given to me was Ashley, she refused to provide any further information about this alleged debt. She said she was with the company Plymouth Processing Associates Law, and after verifying this business online I immediately discovered that it is a common scheme. Ashley claimed if I paid right then I could cut my debt in half, even though she was unable to provide me with any documentation of this debt.
