Complaint / review text:
Mr. Marshall Thomas called me and threatened to have the District Attorney file charges and arrest me for check fraud from a payday loan years ago. I asked him if they bought my account and he stated yes.
Mr. Thomas told me his company Upstate Debt Management wanted $1,500.00. The company would agree to a $50.00 payment and he wanted the rest of the $500.00 that he said he would accept. I gave Mr. Thomas my bank information and he took the $50.00. I called Mr. Thomas after he got the money and told him I couldn't afford to pay him $500.00, he said to call him to let him know about the money. Mr. Thomas called me 05/30/12 and said what happened? He attempted to withdraw $500.00 out of my bank account without my permission. He then threatened me, he will put out a warrant for my arrest and then he hung up on me.
I researched and found all the information on the fraudulent activity of this company. I called Mr. Thomas back and told him he was being investigated for fraud and my attorneys would contact him. Mr. Thomas attempted to call me back, I am working and unable to take numerous personal calls. He has not tried to contact me after this incident which happened today.
