After the first time he called me, I googled this "Legal Department" and saw that this was a scam. I have only spoken to the man once, to inform him that I knew he was a ripoff. From the Google search, though, I guess he will tell you you're being prosecuted for payday loan fraud, and that you need to Western Union him money to resolve the situation.
I will admit I have received internet payday loans, but never from Advance USA. Furthermore, when this man started calling, I had not received any loans, only applied for a few. So, in addition to knowing that this is not how our legal system works, I also know that what he is saying is not true.
The numbers that show up for these calls were at first "Unknown" or "Private." As of yesterday, he has switched to two phone numbers in the Chicago, IL area: 312-473-2883 and 312-473-2924. He was always Adam Smith for the anonymous numbers, and so far has always been Dan Baker with the Chicago numbers. I did a reverse phone lookup on the 312 numbers; all I could find was that they were land lines and were being supported by MagicJack.
