Total money lost $600
Type of a scam Debt Collections
Received a call from a blocked number and was told I had over $1,600 in overdraft fees from an old bank account from 2007. Was told if it wasn’t paid I’d have to go to court and pay hundreds of dollars in court fees ontop of the $1,600+. They knew my social, date of birth, current and previous addresses.

Caller called saying my wife is This message is in regard to a civil matter against my wife and provided a file number. Her name was supposedly Krista Baker. She said the “complaint” had been forwarded to her office and maybe filed against my wife if she didn’t call to discuss the pending allegations further. She said my wife needed to call their “litigation” office at 877-211-0405. If she didn’t call the message said it will result in the department proceeding without her consent. They called my wives cell and work number. They called my cell and work number. They called her parents cell and work phone numbers. I finally called in to see what this was in regard to and was told they would provide no information to me. I said if they can’t provide some detail then I will assume this is a scam and it will be reported. They didn’t ask for money but it seems like that is what they are leading to with the threats of action against my wife. We are aware of nothing that would prompt this sort of thing.
