Taking/threatening an illegal action

review

XXXX, with Critical Resolution Mediation, called me from XXXX XXXX on XXXX/XXXX/2017 around XXXX. She stated that her office had received an unpaid check on a payday loan taken out online at XXXX company which is a non-licensed tribal loan company ( which I now know only because now I have done some digging ). I was told that there was charges pending in her office for malicious intent, wire fraud and theft by electronic funds transfer. I am a single mother, on unemployment, clawing my way through college and already under an undue amount of XXXX. She told me that if I did not pay the {$1400.00} immediately that charges would be filed in my parish ( Louisiana ). I do not know what, if anything, I can do about this, but she never disclosed the call being recorder, that she was a debt collector and went as far as to imply she was an extension of law enforcement that mediates before formal charges are filed? No if possible I would like to know how to sue this malicious company and file charges of my own. If I can file on both XXXX and Critical Resolution Mediation that would be even better after all of the information that I have uncovered today. These are predatory bullies who need to be stopped! They have no regard for the LAW let alone respect! I am livid, I have a XXXX. This was more than I needed.
