Department of
Department Of Law And Investigation FRAUD **06-01-11** Estacada, Oregon
31st of May, 2011 by User397367
As of June 1st, 2011, my mother had gotten a call from phone number 646-369-1372. An Officer Jack Forks from "The Department Of Law And Investigation" had stated that they had her information and also stating that her Social Security was on hold, along with the Residential Address being under investigation by the Government. Being the worried mother that she is, she had walked to my room to wake me up, in tears and had said she had gotten a scary message. She replayed the message for me, and the voice had a Middle Eastern accent, and sounded like he was reading from a script. Like most officers talk with a droned tone, we automatically began to freak. My father returned home urgently from work to sort out legal matters with my mother if it had been necessary. Upon searching for the website and phone number of the caller, we couldn't find a suitable source for the said "Department". About 15 mins later I had typed into Google the Department Of Law And Investigation.. Guess what popped up first hit? This page. Which was a total sigh or relief from my family. We are now working on trying to let everyone in our area know that this is a SCAM, a FRAUD. I deeply send my thanks to the person who has created this site and to the people who have taken their time to let others know about this.

I have been experiencing a rash of these calls since I foolishly applies to payday loan ads that were basically dead ends...no loan was ever provided. I still get a lot of spam and a few calls about loan availability, but this same scam is on-going, with nearly the same script.

The calls say, "This message is intended for [your name]...I need you to return this call the very second you receive this message. My name is [Alex White, Alicia Williams, etc]..." Sometimes, they give a badge number, and say they are with the Department of Law and Investigation. (This, by the way...is not a very realistic name for a department in any level of government, in my experience.) They continue, saying..."We have received a legal lawsuit in your name and against your social security number ending in ####." Lawsuits are court matters...courts have papers seved to people who have lawsuits against them. AND lawsuits are NEVER against your social security number...that just happens to be one piece of information that they have to use against you...the LAST FOUR digits of your SSN. If there is a lawsuit "against" you...you already know about it.

Being unable to pay a bill is not illegal...we do not have debtor's prisons here and we should be thankful for that...scams always start with intimidation...really examine what they say...there is no basis for their harassment and their technique seems based on bill collectors from the 1970s and 1980s. Pay your bills when you can and work with your creditors DIRECTLY when you run into trouble. That would take most of the power these scammers have away from them. Forewarned is forearmed.
