  • IMPORTANT!!! Please read, even if you don't like me, it's about a terrible scam!

    I have important imformation on a scam that was pulled on my wife today.

    To start these people go by the name United Legal Alliance. They say they are out of San Antonio, TX and use a number, 210-280-8017, which according to my online cell phone information belongs to a Babcock, not ULA. They are actually located in Cincinatti, OH according to someone that claims to be a former employee on a discussion forum for phone scams.

    Anyway, they called my dad today and he passed the number on to my wife. She called them back and they said that they were trying to serve a court subpeona on a credit card that I supposedly owed over a thousand dollars on and refused to pay. Well, for one, that credit card was closed BEFORE I joined the Marine Corps, and second, if I had any kind of amount on my credit report owed like that I would not have the secret clearance I have today, and the Navy investigators are pretty thourough about that.

    Well, it scared my wife and she set up a 600+ dollar payment for them through our bank. But, she didn't think something was right so she looked them up on the internet and found pages upon pages about this company and their scam. SO, we went to the bank and closed the account and opened a new one that they can't touch.

    I called this company back, after checking my credit report to make sure that account was indeed closed. After asking them questions needing specific answers they hung up on me several times. I got fed up with it and started threatening them with getting NCIS and JAG involved and then they got beligerent and angry and resorted to name calling, mainly calling me a bitch and hanging up on me. SO, I decided to keep harrassing the hell out of them until they closed shop for the night.

    If you get a message from these people and they leave a 210-280-8017 number, DO NOT give them ANY money. I have a SSgt that has recruiter friends in Cincinatti that are going to go and pay this company a visit. They just might get a visit from NCIS after all.

    Just thought I'd pass this on to you guys so you don't have to go through what I did today. Make sure your spouses and families get this information. They use anything from restraining orders, bad credit issues, and court appearances as ways to scare you. I quite enjoyed calling them and getting them all worked up and ****ed. It was fun harrassing the **** out of them. I might even do it again tomorrow.

      Really, that's all you have to say is to insult my wife man? She made a mistake, they scared her with legal mumbo jumbo. I took care of the issue, just trying to warn others of what is going on.

      I would appreciate if you wouldn't make stupid remarks like that about my wife.

        No fussing with you or your wife, but no one should fall for that crap and send money without first checking with the BBB and getting your FREE credit reports from the three agencies first.

        Getting that credit report would show either you did default or that you didn't.
        Contact the FBI and your bank post haste and get the bank to stop the funds.

        No one is going to scare me into sending money if I know that I didn't owe the suckers and if I did have a card that had some money due, I would not do as they said but call the card company of I did owe it and work out something.

            She knows better now, they just scared her. I was at work and left immediately when she called me. We went straight to the bank and everything is squared away now. Now that I have thier real address I will probably pursue them legally through JAG or NCIS, whichever one handles it. Don't know if it's worth it though. I would just hate for someone else to go throught htis garbage. The first thing I did was check my credit report to make sure that that account had indeed been closed, and it was just as I remembered.

              I would have expected better from you. Not insulting the man's wife in a public forum!

                Thanks, at least you were respectful with your response. Not sure what deputymarshall's deal is, but you just don't talk about a man's wife, or kids for that matter, like that. Where I come from that would start a fight. I don't mind a little respectful criticism, as your post was.

                    Thank you sir. My SSgt was a recruiter in Cincinnati, he's gonna make some calls to his recruiter buddies up there to see what they can find out about these jokers. I want them in jail. If I can, I plan on pursuing them through the military legal system, if not, at least I can inform as many foks as possible about the issue. Their first mistake was choosing a Marine to try and victimize. I have nothing better to do than harrass them and make their life miserable.

                      Nobody listens to the DeputyPirate anyway.

                      The code is more what you'd call guidelines than actual rules (winky pirate face).

                      My teenage daughter loves those movies as well. DP keeps to the code you know, he's one of Johnny Depp's pirates, big fan, pickles and all.....

                        HAHA, too funny. My 7 year old loves those movies, I dread her teen years. I don't worry nearly as much about her as I do my 3 year old though, she's a rebel.

                          Thanks for sharing the info. You have to protect yourself.

                          I had some incidents a decade ago when I had some financial issues. I got myself into debt I couldn't handle until I got a consolidation loan. Paid off all my high interest debts, got letters declaring my accounts paid in full, did everything right to clean up my mess.

                          A month later I got a call on my dept cell phone ( I don't give out the number and it's not in my name ) from one of the companies I paid off, wanting to update my records with some basic info ( they already had this info. WTF?). Wouldn't say where he got my dept cell #.

                          He called back a couple days later saying I lied to him and now he needs more detailed info. I refused and confronted him with the fact that he called my sister-in-law who is 1000 miles away from me and gave her a B.S. story to get her to give up my private dept #. She thought it was an emergency so she gave it to him. He threatend me and hung up.

                          I called the main number for his ( a major "trusworthy" credit card co. ) company and started asking questions. They immediately transfered me to a supervisor that checked his computer and said this man did work there and has no business calling me, my dept is settled. He had no idea why I was getting phone calls from this guy, but he had no authorization to contact me and certainly not to harass me for personal info. The calls stopped, but I made additional phone calls to report this company anyways.

                          Now a month after that I got numerous messages at home from a company I've never heard of with a guy named Tyrone threatening me with major legal action if I didn't pay the $8000 I owed them. I checked my records to confirm I had not done business with them and called back the next day.

                          A nice lady answered Tyrone's direct line and said her desk was next to his so she answered his phone. She told me the records indicated I owed the money and said if I had any questions I should call a gov't hotline for reporting fraud. I asked her another question and she again told me to call the hotline and gave me the number. Hinted that I should call right away.

                          I called the hotline, made a report, and never heard from Tyrone or his company again. Nothing showed up on my credit report. I guess Tyrone's office mate had a conscience.

                          What a F'd up deal. Protect yourself. All it takes to look like a reputable company these days is a website that can be made for cheap, a computer, and a telephone and fax #.
                          We do not rise to the occasion. We fall back to our level of training.

                              Seriously? You might want to think twice next time about posting something that foolish that she did on an open internet forum. What were you thinking?
