Callahan and Associates Threatened to freeze bank accts and incarceration California!!
I received a call on my cell phone from a 951-387-3966 (it read scam likely on the ID). when i called the number back from a different phone, i was told to call 800-268-0307. once i called this number i was told that i would need to come up with $11000+ or i would be forced to go to court and the attorney would charge me another 10000 making the grand total 20000+. The car they were referring to was from almost 10 years ago. The type of car was correct, the finance company was also correc, but the amount wasn’t. The amount that they were claiming to sue me for was way more than the car actually cost. The first chick did say that they had tried to contact me. That’s when i said i have seen this number but my phone said scam so i don’t answer. She just looked over that bit of information. She then forwarded me to another young lady. However, i was suppose to be forwarded to the attorney. The next chick i spoke to informed me that i could pay $1000 by the end of the day today, or make arrangements, which is something that they don’t do, but i would have to put down at least 20% of 11000. I told her that there was no way that i could ever do that, and she stated that then i would face up to 3 years in prison on top of the fine. i was told that if they froze my bank account and income tax, they could do it for 10 years until the debt is paid and extend it another 10 years for an extension. I did tell the chick that i would kill myself because i can’t go to prison or afford that amount. she quickly disconnected, stating that she would need to terminate the call.
