Monday I received a called from a Brian O'Connor stating he was an Attorney for Financial Criminal Investigation Bureau and that I was being charged with federal wire fraud. I had been online the week before researching information for a short term loan. He said I received a loan for $300.00 from USCash Advanced and the funds were put into my checking account. He told me I failed to respond to my email therefore they tried to pull the $300.00 out of my account and funds were not available. I told him I hadn't signed off on any loan with USCash Advanced. He was yelling at me with a heavy broken english and said I needed to get a prepaid debit card on put $600.00 on it $300.00 for loan and $300.00 for fees. I told him I didn't have that kind of money in my account. He told me if I didn't do so I would be in big trouble, I would be arrested and spend 12 years in prison. I was so scared and believed him. He told me I had until 11-18-11 to get funds. He told me to put the money on the prepaid card, not to activate it, but to call him and he would activate the card. My husband told me to contact the Attorney General. I decided to do a search on phone number he call from (Personal Info Removed). I saw all kind of complaints about him and realized this was a scam. I called my bank and put a stop payment on my checking account, notified Springfield Police, Attorney General and the FBI.
I have already received 7 calls from (Personal Info Removed), 10 calls from (Personal Info Removed), 1 call from (Personal Info Removed), 1 call from (Personal Info Removed) and most shocking was 217-785-7444(Il State Retirement System) and these were all the same man. I also received 2 threatening voice mails as well. I have received a call from Mr. O'Connor this morning. I have not answered any of these calls.
The Springfield Police and IBI called (Personal Info Removed) and told Mr. O'Connor to stop harrassing me, but he hung up on them.
This is totally out of control and I want it stopped. This man has my banking information and drivers license information.
I hope someone can find this man and stop him before someone else gets taken by him. He is the one who should spend time in prison.
He is breaking every federal law with regards to debt collection. After speaking with the police and IBI I thought the calls would stop, however that is not the case. Maybe I should be compensated for him harrassing me.
