They change the state depending on what area code calls them.
Exact same wording as calls that I have received only using my state. These scum are very dangerous because they can be located anywhere in the US. This could be someone down the street or across the country. Be very careful with American originating scams. Don’t let them know who you are if you bait them. Please be careful, they don’t need to know whos door to knock on if they get upset.
Looks like @MehNamesJeff was called by Consumer Legal Group P.C, which has a known history of using Indian call centers to screen calls and operate under the guise of a false government agency named the “US Department of Economic Impact Assistance.”
Thanks for this lead - Is there a BBB profile on them, or their own website/email or something?
Another call from (260) 755-3616
In the meanwhile the 855 number is still answering and “Nick” laims he’s a manager and has in fact confirmed, when asking what company he is with, that it’s Consumer Legal Group behind this!! @OfclyGoodenough
Calls are picked up by the “Best Deals Auto Sales” corporate office, so the number was likely spoofed.
I tried to make them aware when calling, but I got 1 ring hang.
Desired Solutions: @OfclyGoodenough
I demand a permanent STOP to all robocalls and other illegal telemarketing practices impacting the US public, most of whom has not given this business prior written consent to be called.
I demand to see what they would be doing to ensure all robocalls stop immediately. They must have a plan in place to ensure compliance with all laws and regulations.
Consumer Legal Group should be required to submit regular reports to a relevant regulatory body such as the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), demonstrating their compliance with the Federal DO NOT CALL (DNC) list regulations. These reports should include information on the number of calls made, call recipients’ consent status and any complaints received.
it was a NY Hardship loan for me seems to be based on Area code, intresting.
I mentioned that.
@MehNamesJeff - this is the call from LUMEN’s network again! It seems like Lumen is becoming very similar to PEERLESS in enabling scams and robocalls! Here are some LUMEN executives’ emails for your reference. It may make sense to complain to them:
(Ignore my current email sent, just wanting to make sure - Fucking hell, I’ve submitted so many over the past “while” I’ve now begun wanting to verify now who’s directly reaching out to me and wanting to know why they’ve decided not to communicate via official BBB Channels. That’s a first.)
Received this earlier today! @OfclyGoodenough @Tillianne Once I have total confirmation it’s Consumer Legal Group about the circumstances of what’s noted into the post, we can send our next set of joint emails - questioning them etc @scamterminator2021 like we’ve always done as necessary!
I think in my next email I’m going to sneak in definitely asking who is responsible for sending the first email, and who is responsible for the second. That way I can try record the contact information/names for reference. I forgot to here.
Where we taking it from here pal? You just let me know and I’ll take care of the rest as necessary. @scamterminator2021
I think you should write to them that their responses were rather generic in nature and failed to address your concerns. They never disclosed to you as to how exactly your personal information had been obtained. They also failed to address your concern regarding robocalls that they place to people’s phone numbers. Your telephone number has been on the Federal DNC for quite some time now, yet they still placed illegal robocalls to it. Why is it done, and who is responsible for such illicit robocalls at this company? Furthermore, what steps are they planning to take to ensure full compliance with all Federal and State laws and regulations, going forward?
On a second though, what if they indeed are not placing such robocalls??? In that case, I would not recommend sending the response above. What if foreign criminals pose as them to just get people’s personal info?
One thing that stood out to me on that note - They claimed to have replied VIA the BBB, as well as now reach out to me directly. They never replied via the BBB way at all, unless somehow, I never got it. Last I checked, whatever the business responds with MUST be sent to the complainant. They never actually said what they said via the BBB channel and to who for that matter which caused it not to be sent to me.
I’ll wait for you to come back online before something is sent. I don’t want to wait to long though obviously.
I’d say then call them out on their bluff and say that they never responded via BBB. Also, ask them specifically if they are making robocalls to any American consumers in regards to services they provide. Are there also possibly any third-party entities that may be making such calls on their behalf, including their subcontractors located overseas?
They did say in the email that allegedly they don’t directly call people who aren’t there clients so I’m thinking of leaving out the “ask them specifically if they are making robocalls to any American consumers in regards to services they provide”. Perhaps I will just reword it somehow… Although, I wouldn’t be surprised if this was false information. I am in the midst of writing the email now and I’ll share the draft soon!
