Already paid NCO $949.29

Harassed into paying pay day loans. Would not send me anything in writing. Did not have account numbers. Stated if I didn't pay would they would sue me by the end of the day, arrest me at work, charge me with interstate check fraud and freeze my social security number?

Anything I can do to get money back? Have a receipt from a law firm Sanders Legal Group who claim they just process the payments.

Already paid NCO

Thanks for your reply. I'll check it out. I guess I caved under the pressure. I've received other calls but realize it's a scam! Same threats!

harassed into paying debt

Are you sure you paid NCO? This sounds like it could be part of the payday loan scam that is happening all over the country. Maybe this firm was pretending to be NCO (which is a large collection agency.)

If you're not sure, we would really encourage you to contact a consumer law attorney. The threats you described are very likely illegal, and if a debt collector breaks the law, you may be entitled to damages as well as attorney fees. There are consumer law attorneys who take on these types of cases on a contingent fee basis which means you don't have to pay anything up front, and you only pay them if you win. So there is no harm in at least getting some feedback on whether they may be breaking the law.

We would strongly recommend you talk with a consumer law attorney with experience in debt collection cases. Find out how to get a FREE consultation with a consumer law attorney here.
