arrest warrantA fellow bankruptcy attorney’s client received this email “arrest warrant” (see below).   Creditors are getting desperate.   Unfortunately, she did not realize this on-line check cashing business was running a scam.  She not only gave them several hundred dollars, but also she allowed them to access her bank account for bi-weekly payments.

Normally, the only time you can be arrested for not paying a bill is if you ignore a court order or fail to pay child support.

Never give anyone access to your bank accounts, no matter how scary they are.

Normally, the only time you can be arrested for not paying a bill is if you ignore a court order or fail to pay child support.  Please do not give out any information about any of your financial accounts.   Do not give anyone access to your bank accounts unless you are absolutely certain they are reliable.  (Personally my husband and I do not allow anyone to take any money out of our bank accounts).  Report any such contacts to your Attorney General’s Office and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

The creativity of con artists never ceases to amaze and disgust me.  Those who are vulnerable to these cons include the elderly, minorities, mentally impaired, low education and socially alienated.  If you ever hear of one of these dirt bags preying on someone – turn them into every legal authority you can find.  Make sure to include the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
