Their "attorney mark" with the email address of "firstname.lastname@example.org" is trying to extort money from me. Here's the email in it's entirety:
Case File No: S- DS-#0380002 AS-BA
Total Outstanding: - $945.00
Loan Company: - ACS INC.
One Time Settlement Amount - $360.00
As we put your SSN into our National Checking Database System, we found that you have been never charged for a fraud activity & that is the reason Court has decided to give you a chance to take care of this issue outside the Court without having a report on your Credit History and SSN. Now if you want to take care of this issue than you have to pay an Court Restitution Amount which includes the late payment charges, penalty charges, interest rate on the loan amount and actual loan amount = Restitution Amount which is $945.00 or else the lawsuit amount which is about $5210.79 WILL BE DOWNLOADED AGAINST YOU.
If you want to settle this matter today itself, then you can get some percent deduction on the Restitution Amount and you can take care of this issue by making the payment of the Settlement Amount today. You have to send us a promissory note to stop your case file temporarily out of the court house. So get back to us ASAP.
We are very sorry to say that you are going to be legally prosecuted in the Court House within seven days as after giving you several notifications through E-mail and at your address, we did not get any response from your side. Your SSN is put on hold by the US Government, so before the legal charges get really serious against you, we are notifying you about these legal charges. But as we were not able to reach you so we are sending you a final notification Email. Your case file S- DS-#0380002 AS-BA ; and since it’s a legal matter you will need our help, so email us now to make a payment and freeze down this case.
AS YOU ARE A DEFAULTER ON THIS CREDIT, UNITED LEGAL INVESTIGATION BUREAU HAS STATED THREE SERIOUS ALLEGATIONS AGAINST YOU AND THEY ARE:
(1) VIOLATION OF FEDERAL BANKING REGULATION
(2) COLLATERAL CHECK FRAUD
(3) THEFT BY DECEPTION
Now, this means a few things for you. If you are under any state probation or payroll we need you to inform your reporting officer or manager about what you have done in the past and what would be the consequences once the case has been downloaded and executed in your name. If we do not hear from you within 48 hours of the date on this letter, we will be compelled to seek legal representation from our in-house attorney.
