An individual called identifying himself as Fred Thomas from Mediation Services. He said I was being sued. First I have ever heard of this. He said it was for a past debt. He was a fast talker who would not let me get a word in inch wise. I have never received any notice from a collection agency or information about being sued. I of course wanted to know more. But when I tried to ask questions he put me on hold. When he came back on I said you put me on hold in mid sentence. He said they were very busy today. He had information from 12 years ago. What bank I banked at, what my address was, and where I worked. My information has been hacked in the past. It did not seem he had any relevant and current information aside from my phone number. When I tried to ask questions he just talked over me and when I told him to let me finish my sentence he hung up on me. I tried to call him back to inquire further and he just hung up on me. I looked this phone number 203-403-2005 (the number he called me from) and it says it is listed to a Harry Shah out of Danberry, CT. When I called the company’s 1-800 # it says the number has been disconnected. There is something shady about all of this.

For two or three days I have been getting calls about a payday loan owe back in 2008-2009 to 2016-2017 using my prepaid debit card. I know I don’t have anything dealing with payday loans. They had my old address and current employment.

A person calling themselves Mellisa Small with the Mediation Services in the Economic Crimes Division contact me in concerning a set of service complaints we have in our office. Your name is listed as a known associate for [person name] and we need to speak to the subject immediately. Our office number is 813-444-4462, reference case number [ #] again case number [#]. Be informed you have been legally notified in accordance with all federal and state laws. Govern yourself accordingly." When I called back, I got an answering machine and did not leave a message. An hour later the same female called and said she was returning a phone call, guess they got caller ID. She said they are a firm that buys and handles criminal and check fraud cases. I have no idea about any of that. When I Googled the company, I could not find any contact information. All I found was a site where other people have complained about a similar experience but with a different number.

A man left me a message stating his name was John Wells. He stated that myself or someone I know had a case pending against me and that I needed to call ASAP to see if they could help me resolve the issue. When I called back a lady answered and stated that my husband was who they were looking for as he had a case pending court date due to a payday loan he took out from a company called "Direct Cash loans". I told her we have no payday loans and that I would need their contact information including physical address of the office to do some investigation myself. She then advised me that they could not provide me with any of that information and that they would handle all the details for their client. She never gave me an amount for this "loan" but stated that she could contact the lender and see if they would accept a offer to stay out of court. I again told her that we don’t have any payday loans. The lady hung up on me. When I called back, a lady named "Mrs. Odom" answered. This lady proceeded to ask me why I was calling back. I told her I’m trying to find out what this situation is about because they called me first stating my husband had a court case pending against him and they asked me if I wanted them to check on a settlement amount. Mrs. Odom then attacked me over the phone telling me " don’t call back here you piece of white trash". Mrs. "Odom" even threatened me by saying "I’ll make you regret ever calling this number back bitch". I never gave her personal information for myself or my husband. Once I typed the number in google…I saw numerous complaints by people receiving the same call and information. Something needs to be done about this scam as they are taking advantage of people by making them believe they have an outstanding loan that they will be sued for. Thanks

Caller left message as "Brandon" from "Mediation Services" that I had a case in their office that required my immediate attention and it was imperative that they speak to me or my Attorney of Record. If they did not hear from me today, I would waive my right to counsel and they would submit my case at the courthouse. Called the number, was passed to "Lacey" who tried to verify my identity in the loosest of terms. I did not give any personal information. Lacey said that there was a case for defrauding payday loan between 2008-2009 and they were to mediate before court. They said they had sent me several emails but couldn’t say from who and I said I searched gmail (which keeps every email) for payday, loans and nothing came up in regards to her claims. She said I could take my nothing emails to court and try to prove my innocence. I ask if it was fraudulent and it was being submitted as a criminal case, why haven’t I been contacted by law enforcement or the district attorney, she couldn’t answer. I asked which court was this submitted and what district? She couldn’t answer and became angry. She hung up. I called back to get more information out of them and they could not provide any real information. I asked repeatedly for a case number or an attorney on record for the case. She became angry and I asked if she didn’t have a case number or a court, I would assume this was a scam. She hung up.

I received a voicemail July 12, 2017 at 8:52 a.m. duration of voicemail was 35 seconds. The message left was, "This is Rachel Lomax with Mediation Services. We have a pending case in our office and it is imperative that you or your legal counsel call immediately, if we do not hear from you or your lawyer today, we will document that you have waived your right to counsel. Govern yourself accordingly." I called the number back and requested to speak with Rachel Lomax. The receptionist said ok and put me hold. A couple minutes later she came back and stated Rachel had left the building but she could step in as mediator. I asked her what pending case is there because I haven’t been notified of anything. She stated she wanted to verify who I was and had my last four digits of my social security number. She stated what it was and I stated I was not saying yes or no to that. She git irriated with me when I said this and stated something about fraudulent filing, avoiding repayment of some debt and she mentioned at least 3 times it was federal. She informed me because I was being uncooperative that she was documenting my waive to counsel and would let her client know this. She stated this at least 3 times, maybe more. I asked her who is her client and she rattled off sime payday loan. As we were speaking to one another I was making notes as to who she stated she was. And here is what she stated…"I am with Mediation Services and Meyer Recovery. After ending the call wuth the young woman I began to google everything she had stated. And here is what I discovered….614 area cide is Columbus, Ohio. 614-245-0637 telephone number from is registered to Todd Walters. The carrier is Telepirt Communications Group, Inc. Ohio. It stated it is a landline in Columbus, Ohio. For the name Rachel Lomax I googled her name and she was a British economist, banker in England. As for a company called Mediation Services in Columbus, Ohio there is that resolves civil disputes. Meyers Recovery is either a towing service or a rehab service in Columbus, Ohio. Direct Cash Loan is like a payday loan source, which I have never heard of. Because I would not give out my personal information to her she went on to tell me her client will be getting notified immediately and there will be grave consequences for me because I was being uncooperative.

Someone called me by the name of Charles Lancaster (thick southern accent), back in March claiming that he had to serve me "court papers" the next day and was wondering if he needed an escort in the event I was unruly. I assured him no, asked what the papers were about and he’d informed me it was for bad check written 12 years ago. He said I could avoid getting any court papers if I resolved it with this company SMS mediators. I therefore called them and it all started sounding very fishy. I called a friend of mine that was an attorney and they’d informed me that a.) it was well outside of the statute of limitations, and b.) no process server would be opening case documents that are meant to be served. So I did nothing, but waited to be served the next day and nothing happened. Just received another call on 5/15/17 from Charles Lancaster spitting off the exact same lines and he didn’t even remember he’d talked to me a few months earlier. I told him I’m not falling for his scam and he hung up.

These guys need to be stopped. They had my social, my old bank account number, addresses etc. Oh, and SMS mediation is a website that has a very ambiguous type pngage, with no real contact info

A man called my house claiming to be from a ‘Mediation Services’. Claimed that someone in my house had an outstanding debt. When I refused to provide information over the phone, the caller got extremely agitated and started using profanity before proceeding to hang up. When I called the number back and asked to speak to a supervisor, It became clear to me that this was some sort of scam operation/ scam call center. Beware of these calls!

When I contacted them I was told it was a scan payday companies do not collect on unpaid loans and that my information was entered into an unsecure site. Now Samantha Moore from Mediation Services has been contacting me claiming to be the lead investigator for a criminal case against me for a fraudulent check, and attempting to defraud. I spoke to this woman and told her it was a fraudulent claim and she said she documented my comments and 20 minutes later another woman claiming to be Samantha Moore contacted me again

These people threatened legal action over the phone if i didnt pay a sum today and stated to "govern myself accordingly." I have no outstanding debt etc and i know this is just a ploy to steal money from frightened people. You cant go to jail for any civil debt nor is that communicated first time on the phone from someone who curses or threatens you. I know very little can be done and that there are already 100’s of complaints about this company.

Samantha from Mediation Services stated there is pending allegations against me from her client such as fraud and breach of contract. She asked me if my last 4 of my SS was wxyz, if such and such was my email address, if I’ve been employed with these certain places and that this was from a Payday Loan that was taken out from 2008. I notified her that I never took out a Pay day loan and she said it was taken out with the bank card Chase. I told her that this was an error. She said she’ll reply back to her client and that they will take this further.

That I or my attorney of record needs to contact them immediately TODAY. If they do not hear from me or my attorney they will document that I have waived my right to counsel and submit my case, and to govern myself accordingly.

They use various names but its always the same voice.

I’ve been called from several different phone numbers from several different states. I keep blocking the numbers but they use a different one each day.

Names: Matthew Davis, Nicholas Kent

Numbers: 801-337-4274, 859-208-0827

I received a phone call from I keep from 859-208-0828 from a company called Mediation Services. In the voicemail the caller said his name was Steven Rogers, claiming there will be legal action against me if I don’t respond back to the call or if they don’t hear from my attorney today. He never once called me by name or asked for another person directly. When I looked the number up online I found that numerous people had received the same message and phone call that I had. This is what led me to believe it was a scam.
