Scum

Somehow I got into the sights of National Paper and Ink which is nothing more than a racket, possibly based in Quebec, possibly run by some Greek gypsy named “Gus” and his girlfriend. Their racket is to send out phony invoices for never ordered or furnished office paper and ink cartridges and to follow up with harassing phone calls. I am getting about five calls a day from the “girlfriend”. She has a very thick skin. She won’t take “Fuck you, there ain’t no money for you here, bitch” for an answer. Hell, I didn’t even get an invoice let alone the “supplies”. My “invoice” amount according to her is $294.00, which is less than the $500.00 jurisdictional amount of RICO the last time I checked. It’s annoying but I get to practice my profanity in the event that I ever enter a cussing contest. My Caller ID captured the number (514) 904-1923.

You wish us inform these "lovely" people of our displeasure?

Also, if you can manage to GET a mailed invoice, would that not constitute mail fraud, and allow for federal prosecution under the ICC?

Or am I remembering my (woefully basic) law class incorrectly?

Hi, Scott. Thanks for visiting. I'm not all that up on my federal law but mail fraud can also occur with telephone calls. However, I don't think that a private citizen can prosecute it. It takes a U.S. Attorney. RICO on the other hand allows a private cause of action but there is a jurisdictional amount of $500.00 in damages.

And NO. DON'T CALL THEM. You'll just get in their sights. Just be warned about them.

pfft...

They ain't met my old man... Bring it on...

But I won't call... Waste of my time, which would be better spent looking at porn.

Been reading for a bit, but finally decided to post. Nice to see another mostly-sane person from illinois...
