PC Express USA

What is PC Express USA? Did you get a yellow notice saying they are trying to deliver a package to you? Did you call the 800 number? Well PC Express USA is just a front for Professional Civil Process www.pcpusa.net. I found the name when I did a whois on the domain name. They are attempting to deliver a supoena to you. I have no problem with people serving supoenas, but this is a total fraud. The website for PC Express USA says they are the 7th largest delivery company in Texas and compares themselves to USPS, UPS and FedEx. There is very little information about this company "PC Express USA" on the internet. Just a few questions on Yahoo Answers that have been closed. Here is one answer I did find.

"PC Express USA is a firm that is in the business of impersonating legal process servers. They are hired by disreputable collectors who are attempting to harass consumers into thinking they have a binding judgement, but they are not working through legal channels nor through the courts.

The collection firms that hire PC Express USA operate under the names of shady attorneys who no longer practice "above board" law and are solely in practice to collect bad debts which they buy at a discount. If a legitimate firm intends to serve you, they go through the legal channels and a representative from a local authority such as the sheriff's office will serve you.

Avoid the PC Express USA company and delivery persons if at all possible. If you can't avoid them, make them sign a letter with their full name, address and contact information before you accept any papers or sign any forms.

Make note of everything about their visit including the day, time of day, whether their vehicle and uniform were clearly marked, whether they presented a photo ID or state-issued badge, and whether they beat on your door or looked in your windows in addition to ringing the bell.

There are laws concerning when a collector or process server can come to your home and what methods they can use to attempt to serve you. If you are unfortunate enough to come in contact with PC Express USA, by the time they get through with you, you will probably have grounds to sue them in addition to the abusive firm they work for."

I hope this gets out to google so more people can find this information. Good luck.

You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.

Just wanted to know where you got that information from. I'm currently avoiding a PC express package. Interested to know your source of information. I want to avoid them whenever possible. I was served with by someone with these type of papers last year and had to settle for an amount that to this day I cannot pay off. I'm unemployed and we are about to loose our house. I just dont need more litigatio on my hands.

My husband recieved a orange tag that was given to his mother. She was told no one could get the package because they needed his signature. Why is that? Anyone delivering any package or forms to any house any household member, especially your mom can recieve it as long as they sign it. Right? The tag has a reference number. when we called it says to leave your phone number, reference number, and name.Then they will call you back. We called on a Sunday afternoon. April 18, 2010 and this was delivered to his mothers address in Robstown Texas on April 15, 2010. We dont want to proceed with this matter, but if they come again we will be ready for them. where did you get this information about pcexpusa? Thank you for this information!

Mike, your blog is full of false information. PCP is a company who contracts with private process servers, of which I am one in Texas. I am under the jurisdiction of the Texas Supreme Court. We are not fake as you indicate and we currently have the contract with the Texas Attorney Generals Office as well as working for a large number of legal firms. You should ammend your blog.

Here ya go folks,

http://www.serve-now.com/resources/process-serving-laws/Texas/#17

which pulls it's information from:

http://www.supreme.courts.state.tx.us/rules/trcphome.asp

and specifically from rule: 106:

"Unless the citation or an order of the court otherwise directs, the citation shall be served by any person authorized by Rule 103 by

1. delivering to the defendant, in person, a true copy of the citation with the date of delivery endorsed thereon with a copy of the petition attached thereto, or
2. mailing to the defendant by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, a true copy of the citation with a copy of the petition attached thereto."


Let me point this "RULE" out... "IN PERSON" & "A TRUE COPY OF THE CITATION". IT also states..."registered or certified mail".

This does NOT say a yellow slip of paper with a tracking number from some delivery company. If the company were following the RULES, it would mail to you (via the postal service) the documentation via certified mail in which someone would have to sign or it would deliver the "package" to you in person. They WOULDN'T leave a slip saying something about a package waiting.

Forgery/fraud would apply if the receiver signed for something that was not theirs.

There are laws and rules already in place to protect BOTH parties involved, but when one party uses deceptive practices to carry out a mission... it's is only natural and LOGICAL that the other party be suspicious.

There is absolutely NO REASON for the practices this company uses as there is a mail system (we pay for) in place to deliver the "package" to the recipient.

Interesting (to say the least). Even "IF" @Keith is correct, @Killing is correct. Just got an 'orange' tag- after 6:00pm. Will be interesting to see """if""" a Judge has the 'grapes' to allow the suit for "improper and deceptive process."
I have scant experience in Texas. We'll see, I will keep this blog advised.

Here is a bizarre one on PC Express. I called them and replied to a tag they left for me. However, they never called back and a few weeks later showed up at my office to serve me. HOWEVER, I was not in town and they just handed the papers to another employee and said, "be sure he gets these". The AG's office is checking on this. The district clerk even said they have to serve them to me. These guys are a joke.

Last night I was awakened from some "very hard" and continuous knockings at my door, the time was 8:57 p.m. I am a single mother of 4 children and my youngest ran into my arms with fear, because no one knocks that hard and we never have visitors at our home at this hour (my kids are in bed by 7:30 and me shortly after). Everyone that knows me, would call before coming over and still not at that hour (it's called RESPECT). I looked into my peep hole and saw no one, so I stood there for a second and shortly a hispanic male with a dingy white t-shirt on and sweating like he had just been dumped in a lake, finally made himself viewable for me to see him. I didn't say anything and I definitely didn't open the door. He finally stopped knocking and slipped an orange PC express USA slip through my door. I waited, still a bit shook up and then I grabbed the orange slip. I was afraid and in my own home, wow! So me being the type of person to give anyone the benefit-of-a-doubt, looked at the orange slip and immediately thought that I had won a PC or either someone was sending me a gift, but who and how? I am an educated woman and I analyze and research any and everything, especially when in doubt. My instincts (book, street & common sense) kicked in and my instincts haven't failed me yet and I immediately became uncomfortable about the whole incident. Therefore, I googled this delivery service and found all kinds of important information about them and how it is basically a fraudulent company from other victims blogs. I live in an apartment and I feel that if this package has some type of legal documents and if it is so important for them to come by at close to 9 p.m. like they are part of the vampire club, then inform the front desk manager and during normal business hours. Secondly, they are not BBB accredited, which some businesses aren't, however, I don't trust those types of businesses. On the PC express USA orange slip, it has the 1800 number and I guess the guy who delivered hand wrote his first name and cell number on it (the name shows as"Phil"). I haven't called either numbers and do not plan on doing so. If they knock on my door again, but at a better time, I am willing to open the door and find out who they are seeking, because I am more than sure that I am not who they are looking for. I still receive mail from past residents who resided at my apartment home, who were here before me. It shows that they will make 3 attempts, so I guess they will be by tonight for the 2nd attempt, gee can't wait. Words of advice, don't pay what you don't owe and do not sign anything that you are unsure of. If it feels like something isn't right, then more than likely it isn't. Doesn't hurt to do your own investigating. And these types of places, NEVER have a physical address, it is always a p.o. box, so please be careful.

Be safe everyone and thanks for all of the advice, it helps people like me to be aware and to proceed with caution.

Hey Southern Gal,

Last time I checked, which was just a few minutes ago in the mirror, I wasn't hispanic, so watch what you call me. Plus it was still hotter than hell in October, thats the reason for the sweating. Your name is not Jennifer by chance would it that left that dumb a$$ not on the door that said "Respect my house/apartment"? Girl. I mean coward. You watch to much Martin. Maybe the package wasnt for you. You do live in an apartment and people move in and out all the time. All you had to do was call the 800 number and see if it was for you or not. Done deal. Easy enough, you would think.

Big (literally) Mike posted 3 consecutive times to my post and only to my post, guess I hit a nerve! Ha! Someone show this man the spell check button and proper grammar to use. I mean, really? Do you work for a company that allows you to be so unprofessional? Not impressed at the least. Glad you know to keep it moving. We have a family attorney and have made a statement with the local police department. So everyone stay on your toes and do your research. As for you Mike, hang in there and as before, keep it moving. Conclusion! I thought your name was Phil? I dislike dealing with idiots!

Idiot? Wow!!! Really? I am not the one that's scared of her own shadow more or less afraid to answer the door at 8:30 at night. Then posted a stupid ass note on her door saying respect my house.

Is it legal for the delivery company to text you after you call them and tell them you are unavailable?

Thanks mike for the info

Hi everybody, PCExpressusa works for the Office of the Attorney General in Texas, a fact I discovered when I called OAG. Just this past Thursday (Oct 24, 2013), I was in court where the allegation that I owned child support was put to rest, as I don't. However, a good two weeks before that, I found one of these little orange/yellow notes. Another one was stuck on my fence's gate in the morning of 10/25. The guy lingered for a while, called my house phone, which I didn't answer but was afraid of coming into the yard because of my geese. I have a male gander that is vicious, so the guy wasn't as stupid as he looked. Anyway folks, PC Express USA is used by OAG in Texas. Sam.
