Received a call and was connected to a " Mr. XXXX '' who answered the phone as simply " law offices '' when I asked for the name of the law office he said he works for a network of attorneys with what sounded like " Client Mediation part of National Mediation Group '' representing XXXX XXXX. He never recited the mini-Miranda to me and just said he said he was offering to settle for pennies on the dollar of my debt that he said was over {$10000.00}. He said he would file his lawsuit if he didn't get paid by the XXXX. I asked for dates of the debts and he said it was charged off in 2014 and that the statute of limitations was 7 years ( it's actually 5 in my state ). I told him i would need to see all paperwork pertaining to this and he said I was just trying to use stall tactics and that he was done playing games and that I am obviously not serious about this matter and would just go ahead with filing his lawsuit with the local ( he listed the city ) courthouse and since the amount was so high it wouldn't just be small claims. He said to make sure I have two forms of ID for when I get served. I hung up on the man and he immediately called and left me a voicemail with more threats which included, having all my licenses suspended, he listed three people 's names close to me and said I could explain to them why they are being summoned to appear in court, and that he would put a lien on all my properties.

A collection agency called NATIONAL MEDIATION called my daughter and threatened to arrest me and file charges on me for a debt I do n't owe. They told my daughter that it was a payday loan and they needed money right then and there. My daughter gave me the message and I called and they were very rude and threatening and operating against the laws of the FDCPA. I explained that it is illegal to call and indicate to another person who is not myself that they are trying to collect a debt. He told me no it 's not. I told him that I do n't owe them and he stated that I do and if I do n't pay he is going to take action

They asked what I was calling for and I stated i want to know XXXX you are talking about she them hung up and would not take any more of my calls.
