Fake Debt Collection Scam Alert

The Federal Trade Commission has received permission from US Federal Court to shut down a debt collection scam that the FTC alleges “collected phantom payday loan “debts” that consumers did not owe. Consumers received millions of collection calls from India, and that since January 2010 the operation took in more than $5 million from victims, according to the FTC.”

The FTC has a webpage dedicated to helping consumers figure out if the calls they are receiving are in fact a scam.  Please go to the FTC’s website and become educated on this issue.
