Someone from criminal defense or dept collection just called me saying I had a warrant wanted me to make 100$ payment I asked for them to wait until the 1st but they said I failed to comply what should I do
I think it is a scam. It may be just a coincidence that you owe Aarons and they say they are from Aarons. First off, you can't be arrested for owing a debt.
Sounds fishy to me. Very fishy.
There is a lot of criminal scamming and fraud taking place to force people to pay debts they don't really owe, so be careful.
What you can do is before paying them anything, demand that they validate the debt, by showing you written proof that they are legally entitled to collect on it, and proof that you owe it, and tell them you will then take it to an attorney to check it out.
I bet they won't ever send you anything, or say they are not required to prove anything to you. That would be a sure sign that they are crooks and that there is no such debt! After that, you probably won't ever hear from them again.
Have they ever written to you?
These fraudulent scams always seem to come up in a phone call, never a letter, because they are afraid to put their fraudulent representations in writing. And, they do not want to be traced to a physical address out of fear of being arrested.
