Cash Advance America America Cash Advance, PayDay Loans. IT'S A SCAM! Los Angeles, California
Thomas from a 808-945-1425 number, and that since my credit wasn't perfect that I would need to purchase a vanilla network reload voucher from walmart or wal-greens with 10 % of the loan amount to make sure that I was a "financially strong" person and then they wouldn't take any money off the card, just check to see that the balance was the right
So I went and whenever I got to Wal-mart there was no such thing as a vanilla reload network by Text-Enhance">voucher
so I purchased a walmart visa money card instead and put the money on there. He told me later that the card would work just do not activate the card and made a really big emphasis on this. I was informed that no money would be taken off this card, that the money was mine to keep.
I gave him the card number and pin on the back and was told that I would have to wait from Friday to a Monday and then they would wire my money to by Text-Enhance">bank account and take care of everything there, then call me back around 1 and let me know that my loan was proceeded and in my account to take and I could activate the card then and get my 500 dollars. Not that this guy had even sent me a "contract" e-mail from CashAdvanceEllc@gmail.com, which I didn't return or sign.
When Monday after 1 PM rolled around I didn't get a response so I called them, then this "Eric Thompson" guy
told me that they was unable to use my card and that I needed to put ANOTHER 500 dollars onto a green dot voucher pak card, and told me that they didn't take any money off my card and I could activate it now.
Well, I refused and went to get my money back, and lo behold the card had been activated the day i gave away the information from it and it was activated in someone else's name and zip code and whenever I went to the
supervisor about this I informed that this was a scam and all the money was gone from the account. And it happens a lot with those kind of cards and now have a case out against this by Text-Enhance">Cash Advance.
After this I had received a call from 876-356-9362 telling me that they could not wire my money into my account because of my credit and that I needed to do something connected with Western Union that would cost me 300 dollars to do and then I will receive all my money, and was informed that they had "Bundled" my money together, and that I couldn't get any
of my money back until I did so. He also informed me that they had been receiving a lot of unpleasant calls concerning my "loan". Obviously worried.
Also, to add to it, whenever I went to buy something using my bank card, the transaction was decline for insufficient funds whenever 140 dollars at least should have been on there. And note that whenever I first called, they already knew my banking account information, proceeding to appear legit. WHATEVER!
This Is a scam!! I was ignorant of this was until I was informed by the Wal-mart money card supervisor, since i never took
out a loan before, but please do yourself a favor and learn from my mistake!
