A suspicious phone campaign sweeping the country has now hit metro Atlanta. Channel 2 consumer investigator Jim Strickland found dozens of complaints posted over the past two weeks with the web watchdogs Callercenter.com and 800notes.com. Consumers said they're getting suspicious calls from an outfit known as National Lien Processing. Dollie Dunn of northwest Atlanta got a series of voice mails claiming she is getting sued and is even the subject of a restraining order. "You have been named as a respondent in a court action and must appear," the message said. It leaves a phone number with a Florida area code to call back for further instructions. There is no demand for money during the message. "Nobody needs to keep calling like that, making you feel threatened. And that's the way you feel. You feel threatened," Dunn told Strickland. Strickland tried to reach a person at the number for information, but the line went dead soon after he identified himself as a reporter.
