    Hey guys,

    I need your help. I just got a call from a Law Office saying: "Hello this is john both calling with an urgent message regarding other attorneys claimed to be affiliated with our office. Please disregard any information that does not come directly from me. We are in the process of preparing your claim. Your direct participation is absolutely necessary, please contact our office at (510) 237-0905 or stop by at 188 Broadway St. Here in Richmond. Thank you."

    I have no idea what this could mean. I have been selling some VeRO items, but they have not been taken down, and the only number this is associated with is my ebay account. Any advice?

    Just ignore them, if you don't receive a legal paper you don't have to attend that kind of requests. A call is not enough.

    Seems like a fake call, and Richmond CA or BC? Do you live near there?

    It's probably fake, so don't worry about it. And luisk is right.

    Don't be bother. Legal issue will be sent officially via snail mail. Phone calls do not matter. Don't worry yourself over it

    Sounds like a spoof call - maybe they are just running a scam and it has nothing to do with you personally, just coincidence.
