On 1/31/14, I was contacted by phone from Advance America claiming that I had taken out an online loan for $185 from this company between 2012-2013. The man identified himself as Mark Johnson of Credit Bureau Investigations at the following telephone number: 914 222-3393 ext. 299 or 211. I told him that I had never taken out such a loan. He began to threaten me with legal action, stating that if I did not pay him immediately, he would start legal proceeding in my state. Additionally, he stated that when I was taken to court, I would need a lawyer who would charge me in excess of $185; therefore, I should elect to pay him immediately. I told him that his allegations were ridiculous and not to call me again. I went to the Internet and input the company name, Advance America. I found scam alerts about this company, along with an option to register and file a Ripoff Report with the Federal Trade Commission at the following web address: http://www.ripoffreport.com/FileReport.aspx.
