Hot News! Thompson Burton raises awareness of a new phone debt collection scam.
In the past week our law firm has received a numerous amount of phone calls from “debt collection scam” victims who notified us that they were harassed by a debt collector calling them on the behalf of our law firm or “Thompson Law firm in Franklin TN.”
Victims of this fraud were called from (615) 567-4250 and were demanded to wire the money to the debt collection agency Ace Cash Express. Feel free to call the number for a good laugh;) Though Ace Cash Express is a legit company, we still believe the scam artist is using their company name to scam innocent people and they’re most likely using a VOIP system, which allows a person to make a phone call from outside of the United States using a 615 area code.
We have contacted the FBI to locate this fraud and we hope that the matter will be resolved shortly. Be careful out there. It’s unfortunate that such frauds can happen with anyone and can take place at any time. If you have been a target of this scam please call your local authorities and file a report.
