|On January 18, 2011 at approximately 12:13 pm I received a call from (904) 374-9062 the individual who called me then put me on hold when I answered, and then when they came back to the phone they asked me "who was I calling" and I stated that "I did not call them that they called me" and then they asked me for a docket # and I told them that "I did not have a docket #" and then an individual identifying herself as "Alex Bradshaw with the Travis County Warrant Department and that she had a warrant for my arrest that was being processed so that they could come and pick me up within 2 hours."|
I asked her "for what?" and she stated for "2 felony theft charges." I told her "I have never stole anything in my life." Then she started interrogating me asking me "have I ever been arrested for theft, if I was on probation or parole?" I asked her "Theft of what" then she said "Be quiet and listen you are talking too much now! Are you going to let me talk?" Then I told her to "go ahead."
She then stated "You got a loan with CashnetUSA, do you recall having a bank account with IBC Bank and they are saying you stole money from them, because you wrote a check and there was no money in the bank account." I then stated to her that "I did not write any check." She said that I have two felony theft charges for a live check/electronic check & a warrant for my arrest in Travis County in which they will be picking me up at my job in 2 hours unless I come up with $510.00.
She told me that it would be pointless for me to get a lawyer because they would not be able to bond me out of jail because there would be no bond and that I would have to sit in jail for 30 to 60 days and that I would be paying lawyer fees.
She asked me if I was on probation or parole. She said that she was going to talk to their lawyer to see if they could work something out with me, she put me on hold then got back on the phone she said she had some good and some bad news. She said the good news is the lawyers were willing to settle with me for $510.00 and the bad news was I had 2 hours to wire them the money through western union, but that would be too expensive so go ahead and send it through the MoneyGram, then she told me I had 30 minutes to call her back to see if I got the money because she didn't want to put it through to the lawyers if I couldn't put it through to the lawyers.
She said that "She was going to call my job and tell them about the theft charges and since they are felony theft charges I could lose my license since I work at a hospital."
I panicked and started crying and she told me that I had 30 minutes to call them back.
I called my mother and she told me not to accept anymore calls from them that they were actually a collection agency and that what they were doing is called harrassment.
They called me 3 more times after the 30 minutes were up.
I have never received anything in the mail from this company and I do not want to be harrassed or threatened with going to jail or losing my job or having them calling my place of employment.
