Type of a scam Phishing

Received calls from private number that left voicemails threatening raids at my residence if I did not call them back at a 877 number and reference a case number. When I did so the company who answers the phone claims that they don’t make outgoing calls. Once you confirm your information they claim that they will no longer call you, but the harassing calls continue. I tried calling and speaking to a supervisor which I was only passed off to another nearby scammer. I could hear the same noises in the background and the "supervisor" was just as unprofessional as the operator. When I pressed them on what company they worked for I was hung up on and when I called back they would hang up. Finally my number was blocked from calling them. I used a different phone to call back and was able to convince an operator to provide me with the fact she was located in CA and that I could not have the name or number of the Org that was calling me. She again wanted more of my information so they could "take me off their list". This was after claiming they don’t have a list or make calls.

I have received calls from a "Coastal" company saying they are looking for me – others have received calls for me on my old phone numbers (that I have not used in over 4 years). They say to call back or they will file "the necessary paperwork with the courts". So, I called back. I asked who they were calling on behalf of and they resisted then the girl rattled off 6 letters I’ve never heard of. I asked her to repeat it and she said them in another order. I told them this was a scam and to delete all of my phone numbers and my name from their registry. The girl then hung up on me.

The message asked me to call them back at (855) 852-7964.

The phone number on my caller ID does not match the contact ph#; It is: 855-851-2697.

The worst part is they called my mom’s home ph# so she thinks I am in financial trouble and a couple people at work whose desks I used to sit at years back – they think I don’t pay my bills.

This is so awful. At least I am aware of a scam when I hear one so I am not out any money – but the social aspect is pretty terrible too.

Thank you for your time!

A woman called looking for my husband, refusing to answer any questions through me except that they went by COASTAL, just COASTAL, nothing else and thanked me for calling and hung up on me. Hanging up, I had my husband call them back on strict orders to give no information and strictly to receive it. They told him that he had a bad check out with a loan place. When probed as to information in regards to the loan place, the bank the check was filed through, and the amount. They informed him it was an electronic check from Wells Fargo Bank, amount unknown, in Axle Tx, at ASCO LLP loans. The address they gave him from the banking information, was an address he’d lived in as a child. An account that was still active with a positive $400.00 bal. My husband said okay, and seeing he was making no progress the man told my husband he’d receive paperwork and hung up. My husband then called Wells Fargo in Tx, while I surfed the internet looking for a ASCO LLP loan company, in AXLE Tx…. which does not exist. Nor does an ASCO LLP loan. The bank told us no such account in such name existed in their system. And told us this was a scam and to end any further contact with this number or "establishment".

Business said it was called coastal but refused to give me their address. They hung up on me after asking them several times. They called my wife and left a voicemail stating that a complaint has been filed against me and would take me to court. They are very very rude.

Repeated harassing phone calls saying they have a pending litigation towards a person, who they claim is me. They are very rude and short. After telling them this person was not me, they said they would remove my phone number, which they did not. I am getting 2-3 calls daily. They will not give me their names and when they finally told me what company it was, they mumbled "Coastal" so I couldn’t hear them. They finally told me "Coastal" was in Georgia but refused to give me a direct address. The phone number I have that keeps calling is 855-585-1351. After I kept pressing for their names, they told me to have a nice day and hung up on me. I have been hung up on twice because I was asking too many questions.

My mother in law received a call today from "Coastal" looking for me. Left the number 1.866.320.2455. I called the number back, it disconnected me the first time. The second time I got through to a "Christopher". He said he worked for Coastal, a 3rd party legal collection center. Said his client "Highlands" put in a claim against me for a $400 loan back in 2013. Said it was never paid. I asked for more info and he said he could give it to me for a fee or I could pay the $400 now before it goes to court. I asked him why I had never heard about it before, he couldn’t tell me. I asked for his website address, he said it’s against their policy to give it. He knew where I worked, my mother-in-laws phone number is also a residence where I lived before. He knew my address and phone number. I don’t owe anything to anyone like that nor have I ever received anything that I was late on any payment. This can’t be real and it’s very disturbing that he knew all of that about me. I believe it’s a scam for sure.

April from Coastal called and said I have litigation pending against me for a payday loan. I asked her to mail me hard copy information proving the debt and she said she would not. She then said, "so you are disputing and we will go forward" I said ok. She transferred me to the "legal department" where I spoke to an attorney named Micky who would not give me her bar number. She told me i’m arrogant and other things she couldnt say over the phone. Again I asked for something in the mail and she said ok, that is where they will serve me. They are calling my workplace and I need them to STOP! ASAP!
