Default new email scam. how did they get my personal info.?

first please keep in mind that i do NOT owe any boby any money.. i ihave credit cards but dont use them.. second if i did take out a loan then i might have paid them the money thinkong it was my loan company becuase i never seen a scam like this...

also please nothe that they are asking for my checking acct info not a secured credit card and also please nothe they are asking me to send them the payment in a non secure walmart money gram... how stupid and unsafe is that....

it gave me a good chuckle for the day..... oha nd the email starts exactly like this below............................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................word 4 word.......................



If you have NOT been in contact with your individual account manager, you will need to reach them or myself prior to the close of business 11/16/07.





***If you HAVE been in contact with your individual account manager this week and confirmed voluntary arrangement, please disregard this email, your case file will update automatically at the close of business 11/16/07***







2ND NOTICE 11/15/07

Date: 11/09/07

Case#2207-26aa



Dear Debtor,



At this point I can only assume that you are intentionally refusing to resolve this matter voluntarily, meaning you intentionally deceived this company. This company loaned you money in “GOOD FAITH” and funds were electronically deposited into your ACTIVE checking account. Once you defaulted on the terms of the agreement, we were forced to allow extension fees to accrue on your account. I have tried to work with you to get this matter resolved but you have consistently avoided repayment on this account. I’ve extended settlement offers, as well as payment arrangements, but you’ve refused every attempt to acknowledge this debt on a voluntarily basis. Unfortunately, I can no longer secure any unpaid cases, so they will be released from my possession for further review between today (November 09, 2007) through November 16, 2007.



This action will lead to a significant jump in the amount you owe plus further collection action will proceed swiftly. This is NOT a threat or any intention to cause financial harm but my job must be completed. If you truly want to resolve this matter in a voluntary manner, then contact me with your payment information today. I understand that bad things happen to good people, but avoiding the situation doesn’t make is disappear. I am willing to re-establish an agreement and secure this account, but I must hear from you today and a payment must be made on this account very soon. Making a small payment (ex. $195) to put a hold on your balance is better than making none at all.



If no response is received from you then I will assume that you are giving me the authority to make the final decision regarding this account. Again, if no payment information is received regarding your account, you can guarantee that I will be forced to pursue you for the full balance owed plus any fees associated with your loan contract. This is an action that I do not feel comfortable doing, so please work with me. Please contact me via telephone or email to resolve this account voluntarily and prevent further collection action.

Did I miss where they say how much you owe?

They are all over google as scammers. Some people are so stupid. Last notices on payments aren't sent through email...
