Should I send money to someone I dont know in order to get money back from them
Two years ago I invested in an internet company which turned out to be a scam. Since then they have been brought to trial. Several days ago I received a call from David at the Business Justice Center stating that the Consumer Recovery Associates has a sum of money set aside in my name.
I need to file a claim and pay about 1/5 of the total sum in order to claim it. And it needs to be done soon while the pool of money is still there.
My question is: Since this was initiated by them can I trust that they will deliver if I forward them the funds? Or is this just another continuation of the scam? Thank you and I would appreciate a response to this as soon as possible.
Should I pay a fee in order to get funds that are supposedly mine released to me?
You should not need to pay a fee to access funds held for disbursement to you. Consumer Recovery Associates is a debt collection agency. A quick search for Business Justice Center did not yield results.
The little detail you provided is enough to make a skeptic out of me. You should be wary of anyone telling you to act quickly by paying money for something that is allegedly already yours.
Do you have a phone number, email or physical address for either the Business Justice Center or for Consumer Recovery Associates? Have you received any documentation from either company?
