A woman named "Lucinda Perry" contacted my wife looking to contact me. "Lucinda" claimed to be an arbitrator for the law firm of "Watson & Stephens Associates" and was calling "before a judgement was filed against me" on behalf of Check-n-Go. My wife promptly called me on a conference call. "Lucinda" asked me to confirm the month and day of my birth after she provided the year. She then would read to me my SSN. I provided the month and day and, to my surprise, she correctly read me my SSN. "Lucinda" proceeded to tell me that in order to avoid a judgement, I would either have to obtain a lawyer and make an appearance in court (three states away where I formally lived seven years ago) or pay $897.10. I told "Lucinda" that there was NO way that I would be making a 12 hour drive or spend $300+ dollars (one way) for a plane ticket. My wife asked what would happen if I did not make the court appearance. "Lucinda" stated that my employer would be served with wage garnishment papers ordering a 25% garnishment of my wages as well as having a judgement on my record for 10 years. "Lucinda" started to say that I could make payment arrangements when I cut her off. I stated that I challenge the validity of an alleged debt and that even if I did have such a debt, there is a statute of limitations on an alleged 16 year old debt. "Lucinda" stated that the case was reopened and several letters were sent already (all to an address I have not had for 15 years). If I wanted to see the original documents, I would need to appear in court to do so. Or, get a lawyer and the lawyer would be charged to see the documentation. The call was ended by "Lucinda" giving us 24 hours to "get all of our documents I order" and contact her back or else the judgement would be filed. The wife did a web search while we were on the phone with "Lucinda" and saw the website. After we ended the call, the wife and I discussed what had just happened and I suggested that we try to call the number which "Lucinda" called us from. Our call was answered by a man that "was just a receptionist" and could not provide any information (even though he asked for a reference number. When I came home from work, I started doing my own research. Nothing about anything I was able to find came close to seeming legitimate so I came to the ScamPulse.com and found that this has happened to others. The scam is almost identical and all of the factors (age of alleged debt, etc) were all to close to be coincidence. I have not and will not give these people a single cent and I’d advise anyone that has come across this to do the same.
