I and each of my daughters received individual phone calls on 2/22/2016 from a lady claiming to be Francine Watts an intake worker/mediator/legal outsource mediation for a company called CJB & Associates. She said she was trying to reach my daughter concerning a debt collection from a loan she said my daughter had taken out on the computer in February 2013. She said the loan was for $300 and the agreement for this loan was to repay $430. She said the company’s name is Tax Management Group. She claimed they had made numerous unsuccessful attempts to draft that money out of my daughters account. She claimed they had mailed 3 letters to her at our address (which she provided to me) as well as she said they emailed my daughter (which she provided my daughter’s email address to me) She said the balance owed is now $732. She said the paperwork had been filed and there would be a case filed in the county in which we reside. She told me the bank name, last four of the bank account number and the last four of my daughters social security number. She couldn’t tell me the exact date of the deposit which was one of many red flags to me. She said that my daughter should retain a lawyer. She said the amount they were going to ask for if it goes to court will be $2632.88. If my daughter wanted to take care of it before court they would settle for $487.52. Francine said the case would be for breach of contract, defrauding financial institution with malicious intent. The phone number that was left on my voicemail was 855-205-2364 ext 103 case number 146070KY565. I googled that phone number and it comes back to a lodge in Tennessee. There was a comment on the screen that someone else had received a similar call as well. I firmly believe this is a scam as I have checked my daughters bank account for the time period Francine told me to search for this supposed loan activity. I did not locate any deposit. I did not tell her my daughter would have only been 17 years old at the time she claims this activity occurred. They did not ask for a credit card or any other form of payment on the spot. I told her I was going to check into the situation and get back with her today. She told me it was not her intention to scare my daughter, only to help her resolve this issue before it goes to court -at which time she would be forfeiting any offers to settle.
