Courtney at Chadster Law called me to find my mom. She spunded pretty trashy and unprofessional (I have worked at some of the finest law firms in the country.) She said my mother left my number as a possible contact regarding a legal matter they cannot discuss. (My mother never had the new cell phone number at which they called me, but I did not say anything about that until later.). Courtney was short and rude about any questions I had. After hanging up, I looked online and couldn’t find any website for Chadster Law–which is uncommon for a law firm. Further, I saw complaints such as the one on this site. So I called Courtney back and she was so rude. She yelled at me and over me full throttle when I asked her to site their firm’s identification for the third time after her tying to evade my question.
I asked what they specialize in. She refused to tell me. I asked if they were a collection agency and she said that is one of their services, but she started yelling at that point that they were in Utah and there’s no reason for me to need ro know. She totally mischaracterized that I said I would report report her message to my mother and that we talk all the time. It was awful. She kept yelling over my questions like a total cat fighter. I told her there was nothing professional, reasonable, nor legitimate about her conduct that led me to believe I should deliver any message on their behalf and to note that not only would I not deliver her message, but that I would report her. She, after that, kept asking me to listen, listen, listen. I told her that after the way she yelled, lied, and behaved, I have no desire to hear more. She said over and over they have removed my name and number from their list, contacts, etc. I said they never should have had it in the first place and asked how she got it and felt she could lie and say my own mother gave it to her. Needless to say, this is not a professional law office.

I am writing this article to expose a group of debt collectors that are running a scam across the United States.
This groups goes by 3 company names: “Legal Mediations Firm”, “Goldstein Associates”, and “Field Credit International”.
I received a call from this company within the past few days claiming that I owed a debt to a payday loan company and that they would be filing criminal lawsuits against me if I didn’t pay. I immediately knew it was a scam since individuals cannot file criminal lawsuits – that is handled by the Attorney General’s office. Furthermore, failing to pay back a debt is not a criminal offense even if this company claims it is fraud.
Their website currently appears to be located here: http://www.legalmediationsfirm.com
I want to start off by pointing out some gaping holes in their website. To start with, the quote on the homepage by “The National Law Journal” is not authentic. I have confirmed this with them are they are currently investigation the misuse of their name. In addition to that, they have “© 2009 by Legal Mediation Firm” at the bottom of their website to appear as if they have been around longer than they have. The domain name “legalmediationsfirm.com” was registered on November 06, 2013. You can verify this information here: http://who.is/whois/legalmediationsfirm.com
My suspicion that this was definitively a scam was confirmed when viewing their “Attorneys” page which is currently located here: http://www.legalmediationsfirm.com/#!attorneys/galleryPage
On the Attorneys link above, you’ll see a picture of “Elliot M. Davis” which is fake. The picture being used is that of Makau Mutua (Dean of the University at Buffalo Law School): https://www.google.com/search?q=Makau+Mutua
I have notified the Jacksonville Police Department and Makau Mutua of the identify theft that has occurred here.
The legal name of this debt collection company is “Field Credit International”. They call people all over the United States, but they are regsitered in Jacksonville, Floria. You can verify this information here: http://search.sunbiz.org/Inquiry/CorporationSearch/SearchResultDetail/DocumentNumber/domp-p13000070034-e7e6d093-d08b-4b2c-b671-0014d2084b44/P13000070034/Page1
According to the link above, there are 4 main people running the company. If you are Human Resources agent that found this post because the name of one of the people listed below was in the title, DO NOT HIRE THEM without reading everything mentioned in this article. They are scammers.
Here are the 4 main people responsible for running this major scam operation:
It’s also important to mention that “Jeff Green” is the name of the person who contacted me by phone. I do not know if that is a real person, but I believe it’s one of the people listed above using a fake name.
I was able to find out detailed information about both Dwayne Baidy who appears to be the main person running the show. Dwayne registered the domain name “legalmediationsfirm.com” with the following information:
1444 Cesery Blvd
Jacksonville, FL 32211
Email: [email protected]
However, the information listed above is their official business information. Here is a short biography and the contact information for Dwayne Baidy:
Dwayne Baidy actually lives at 837 Aries Rd W in Jacksonville, FL with the phone number 413-732-3336 – you can feel free to call him and complain about his unethical business practices. He graduated in the Class of 1988 at Springfield Central High and then attended the University of Memphis. He was born in Springfield, Massachusetts. You can view his FaceBook page here: https://www.facebook.com/dbaidy – let’s all make sure his friends and family know what he’s been up to.
I was also able to track down the contact information for Julius Golden to these addresses:
11667 Jerry Adams Ct, Jacksonville, FL 32218-2960
2766 King Cole Dr, Jacksonville, FL 32209-2829
IF YOU ARE CONTACTED BY ANY OF THE COMPANIES OR PEOPLE LISTED ABOVE, DO NOT SEND THEM ANY MONEY!
Please get in touch with the following agencies and point them in the direction of this post if you’ve been contacted by them:
Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office – 904-630-0500 or [email protected]
Federal Trade Commission – https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/
Florida Attorney General – http://myfloridalegal.com/contact.nsf/contact?Open&Section=Citizen_Services
Also, don’t forget to contact the Attorney General in your state as well as your local police department. IT DOESN’T MATTER IF YOU OWE A DEBT OR NOT. This company is clearly a scam and most likely does not have the right to collect your debt. They’ve most likely obtained the list they are calling illegally since I know for a fact that I owe absolutely no debts.
You can read more about the debt collection laws here: http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0149-debt-collection
If anyone is interested in purusing a class action lawsuit against these individuals, I would be more than happy to provide the money needed to make it happen. I can be contacted at the following email address: (((email redacted)))
NOTE TO THE SCAMMERS: At some point in time, I’m sure the individuals listed above will come across this post. When you do, I want you to realize that continusing to call people and trying to collect false debts will result in more posts like this being made by me. I found the information above within about an hour – imagine what could be found if I got bored and spent all week researching you.
