Type of a scam Government Agency Imposter
This company called me and represented themselves as being an employee at the county of Orange. They explained to me that a past acquaintance listed my phone number as a point of contact. I know this to be untrue because I have not given my cell number that was changed in the past year to this person. It is obvious they obtained my information through skip tracing. She said that a case is being filed against him with the county and that he needs to call back immediately. I asked several times where she was calling from and she continued to say the County of Orange. She gave me a case number reference. When I called the number she gave back this same individual (I verified her name Kordy Mitchell) answered the line. I asked the company info and she told me National (shew said there was not another part of their name only National). When I asked for a manager she refused to let me speak to one until I gave her the case number. Once she transferred me I was sent to a Sunny Stevens who said she was a manager. I asked again what the company was and she said National Proceedings. I asked what the nature of the business and she said that they handled cases being filed on someone. I explained to her that I knew that they were a debit collector and that they broke the Fair Debt Collections Practice Act by misrepresenting themselves as a government agency. To my knowledge this is a federal crime to falsely represent yourself as a government agent. They did not seem to have any concern that their employee was breaking the law at all.

Said his name was Blair Williams, never gave name of company, said i had a case against me, gave me a bogus case number and needed to call the legal dept at 8552130271, when called they answered National and then mumbled. Hung up after i asked why I kept getting a call from the 954 phone number. They had #s to my mother and sister as well..sounds like a total phishing scheme saying they are trying to physically locate me
