I recieved a phone call at work TODAY 12/16/2009 from a Mr Jones. He started the conversation by saying I was being takin to court from Cash Advance USA for getting a $300.00 loan initially and when they tried to debt my account for re-payment they had 6 returned Checks and stated I was being prosecuted for writing bad checks and basically stealing this money. He told me I had a right to an attorney and if it went to court Id pay over 8,000 in fines and fees.  He then told me the client is willing to resolve this outside of court but first I had to send an apology letter to them stating that I indeed did owe this and Iam sorry for not re-paying this when I agreed and I that I give them permisson to debt my account for $1045.37. I then told him before I say anything further I was going to check my bank account for this transaction because If I owe it Ill pay it but Im 100% sure this transaction never took place. He then told me I had 30 minutes to return a call to him.


I called my bank and the particular Month he said this transaction took place my account had not even been opened. I have yet to return his call but Iam to give him the information. It just doesnt add up. The scarey thing is he had all my bank account information, IP address, Referances that I have used in the past, Social Security Number. Dont know how but he did.


He also said prior to our conversation had I been contacted about this issue and i told him NO ! He said well dont interupt me and let me exsplain that is when he began to tell me all this.


The account number he gave me was CA98859 for the claim, 916-458-5665 was the phone number he left for me to return his call.


 


No one fall for this it is 100% a complete Scam into getting you to pay these rediculous amounts by telling you your going to be takin to court and end up paying thousands.

Cash USA Scam

AUTHOR: elana - ()

Very grateful that I found this website. I just received a call like the majority of the ones I see you all mentioned. I have actually taken out pay day loans and presently have some out right now, but I pay them all back on time. This was the first time I ever received a call of this nature, but I guess when  you endlessly put your info out here the scammers will get it because a lot of them are FAKE lenders and are just pretending to be that in an effort to get your info and later scam you. At any rate....

 

I first got an UKNOWN call which I usually don't answer. The guy, with a Middle Eastern accent, said he was Deputy Mike Anderson and called from 313-420-6843. He said they had received a complaint against me and if I didn't call this other number to find out what it was about that they would be issuing a warrant. So I'm already laughing like "What BS is this about?" Because I don't bother anyone and am most certainly not a criminal. So I call the number which is a Maryland number 410-390-9007. The guy whose name I was given was Mark Taylor and he put me on hold to pull up my file.

He said my SSN, DLN, and so forth were going to be blacklisted and that they were calling from the FDIC. He said that I had a loan with Cash USA (I had never heard of them before today). He kept offering for me to settle the issue outside of court, but if not they were going to bring federal charges against me and said that I had violated federal laws. At this time I began to Google Cash USA and that's how I found this site and other listings that said it was a scam.

Both men had Middle Eastern accents. The second guy kept saying "While on this federally recorded line are you willing to settle this situation"? I kept laughing at him saying that to attempt to scare me. I said I don't know what you're talking about and I know that this is a scam so I won't be paying anything, will be calling the Consumer Protection Bureau, and please take my number off of your call list at which time I was hung up on.

AUTHOR: JOE S - ()

I bet the person calling has a middle eastern accent. I get these calls from time to time and I just laugh and tell them I know this is a scam and they are not going to get a dime. It really messes up there plans and they hang up on me. So anyone reading this beware if they call you just tell them you know it's a scam and your not giving them a dime they will hang up on you. And another thing a failed ACH can not be bad check and they can do nothing to you for a failed ACH it is not the same as a bad check. Also when they threaten you it is a violation of the FDCPA laws and could sue them but you probably couldn't do that because they don't live in this country. BUT just LAUGH at them and hang up.

File an offical Report with Federal Governement

AUTHOR: CWK32 - ()

I just received the same calls.  They threatened to throw me in jail, etc.  I told them I suspected fraud and was going to contact the authorites, the man, who said his name was both David Fisher and Anthony White (with a thick middle eastern accent), became irate and yelled and cursed and gave all kinds of threats.  I contacted the FBI, which suggested I submit a report to the internet crime department.

The website to file the complaint is complaint.ic3.gov

Heres what I did

AUTHOR: Bob - (United States of America)

I contacted the FBI in my state closest to me and informed them.   I also contacted the Federal Trade Commision and filed a report with them.     If they keep calling you everyday, then you need to contact these agencies and also another thing I do is since I do not have a home phone anymore, I create a contact call "do not answer" and when I get one of these calls, I add the number to that contact. 

But ultimately you need to just take the power from them and find out what your rights are for. 

1.  One of those rights is they have to provide you a written validation of debt listing details of the debt and send it to you. 

2.  They CAN NOT use profanity on the phone with you.

3.  They CAN NOT ask for money in unreasonable terms. (such as pay me in 1 hour).

4.  They CAN NOT misrepresent themselves (such as saying they are with a company when they are really not...)

My experiences with this and additional information about my response

AUTHOR: Bob Williamson - (United States of America)

2/8/13 I just got contacted by a phone number 760-651-2851 who claimed to be from the CA States Attorneys office charging me with check fraud, and a host of other things. 


They claim that the lawsuit being filed was from cash advance usa and said that they had given me a advance in the past and tried 6 times to get funds from bank account number I gave them (which was "fraudulant") and they demanded me to pay them within a hour $975.45 ON A PREPAID OR OTHERWISE UNTRACEABLE EFT METHOD. 


In general when I would ask questions or ask them to send me a validation of debt, they would raise thier voices and start cursing at me and hang up. I would call them back to try to figure out if this was real and they would answer the same number multiple times. 


They threatened me with embaressment for me from my family and my job finding out about this. 


They also tried to threaten me with "if you don't pay me now then tomorrow am we will have some people at your house to arrest you." They also said that if they had to file lawsuit, it would cost me $3000+ and 6 months in jail. 


I DID NOT pay them because I was making another call to my lawyers office and they said that they have never heard of this and they do bankruptcies. 


I would have hung up with them at that point in time but they were threatening my job and I had to file a report with my company's security officer. 


I had to do some things because my companies security officer said I needed to. 


1. I contacted the FBI in springfield and filed a report, 


2. The FBI asked me to call the Federal Trade Commission who said that this operation IS being investigated. 


3.  I called and left message with IL states attorneys office to tell them of this scam. 


4.  I also filed a fraud alert with my credit. 


The FTC said that they did all this wrong on several points... 


1. They misrepresented themselves as who they are 


2. They ARE NOT supposed to use profanity in collecting a debt 


3. They CAN NOT ask for money and payment in a rediculous time fram such as 1 hour. 


4. They are legally supposed to send a validation of debt in writting (they said that they would send it to my company) 


I also understand from my experiences that ... 


1. If they were filling a lawsuit, then I know that they would have to send me notification FIRST before they did anything and I have a right to get my own lawyer. 


I am sending this story to you because if they called me then they have hit other people around too. See the following website ... 
http://www.ripoffreport.com/cash-services/cash-advance-usa-com/cash-advance-usa-complete-s-aad47.htm 


If others could benefit from this warning getting out on public airwaves that this scam is apparently in the area then my experiences could help others. .

AMERICA CASH

AUTHOR: JOE SMITH - (United States of America)

I received a call from these people also stating they with the firm of Robbies & associates with the phone number 206-734-4604. Tey also sid I would be  arrested and taken to jail for 10 days and then have to pay $8000. t was for a $300 loan from advance cash. So while they held I checked them out and there is not Robbies $ Associates anywhere in the state of washington and I seen this web site and seen this post so when I went back and called them I told them they were nothing but a scam. The lady got very confrontational. and made all kinds of threats and when I laughed she hung up. Now they won't even answer my calls. So if you receive a call from these people just tell them you have checked them out and they are nothing but a scam and wait for them to blow up. These people are over in the middle east and try to scam anybody they can so beware.

Also Contacted by these people...

AUTHOR: Shay - (United States of America)

 I have been contacted by all of the same people listed in these reports plus some new names Like James Delano. Some say they are Officers ( Officer Ricky Jones ) some say attorneys. They have threaten to have me and my husband arrested so i contacted my local police department and was told these people were full of pooh. I also have contacted my brother who works with the FOP in the next town and they have had alot of similiar reports. I gave them all the numbers they have called me from and they are working on getting these people. It seems they dont know its illeagal to impersonate an officer...What got me was they always call from different numbers and it has even came up on my phone as 911 Emergency!!! They had all of our information, SS numbers bank accounts numbers address EVERYTHING! We closed our accounts and have reopened new accounts just to be safe and we talked to the bank so that they are aware of the scam and we also told them about this site and the information we found on here. We have NEVER done any kind of pay day advance or loan so we knew we were right but some people are not so lucky and have fallen victim to this. I hope they are caught and go to jail themselves. Very scary that they had all that info about us. Good luck everyone and please dont fall for this scam. When I called them out on it they cursed me up one side and down the other but best believe they got an earfull inreturn...lol and that felt good.

Total Rip-off

AUTHOR: Most Hated - (United States of America)

I was just contact by "Attorney Damon Marshall" He originally left a voice mail on my cell advising that I have criminal charges that were filed against me and the Police would be arriving to my home within the hour to arrest me. I called him immediately@ "707.508.4208", He advised that I took out a payday loan. I inquired about the amount. He told me that he does not work for the collection agency and he does not know how much. I said well how much does it say I owe. He said after all taxes fees and surcharges i owed $700+ I told him that he had to be kidding. I have NEVER taken out a payday loan before in my life. This man had so much of my information that it was a very scary situation. He told me that he would place me on hold to see if the court would settle. As I am on hold with him I begin to Google the phone number as well as "Cash Advance USA" up pops SCAM... I was reading aloud and I dont think he was on the other line but he heard me and became very defensive. Mr. Marshall called me soooo many derogatory name and I could not believe it. Then he hung up in my face. Everyone please beware that this is a complete scam!!!!

Also A Victim

AUTHOR: James C - (United States of America)

Had pulled out a few online loans that I was in the process of paying down and I received a phone call similar to those listed. A man with an Indian accent left me a message I could not understand but a few words, one of which being lawyer. Stated the same previously stated, that they had tried to pull money via an electronic check and that instead of trying to fight for the money, they closed the account and filed it as a loss. They were in turn deciding to file a lawsuit against me and an affidavit has been filed against me and I had to appear in court. The affidavit had been filed in my local state and I should have been contacted by the sheriff last week. I had not been and had gotten no other notices about this. In my pure panic I didn't ask all the questions I should have the first time around. I got on the phone and started calling courthouses here in Colorado Springs to try and find out when the court date was. Come to find there were no court dates. Was taking the court date seriously because I had missed a court date here for a traffic case and they arrested me and I spent the say in jail. Not a fun day. So, I decided to call the number back and the guy was very unprofessional which raised my suspicions. I started to ask the questions I should have asked the first time around. I asked what company it was, his reply being "Cash Advance USA". I looked back through my papers and that was not the company I had gone through. So then I asked, ok, do you have a case number and a court date? He said, yes, you are to appear in court today at 5:00 pm. I said, wow, ok, where at. He replied San Francisco court. I was like, ok, how does this make sense, you said that the case has been filed in my local state, and I've received no communications about this prior to today and you're telling me you don't have a case number and that I have to appear in San Francisco today. Really? He made some smug remarks and then it got quiet.... and he hung up on me. Thank God for this site and coming across these reports cause I was freaking out. They didn't tell me any information that was personal, account numbers, social or anything like that, but I am still all the same very concerned. The number they called on was 1-213-261-5794. They didn't tell me any amounts that I owed and he did also give me the same, do not interrupt me, you can ask questions after I am done. Anyway, hopefully others don't fall prey to these guys.

Cash Advance Usa

AUTHOR: Jaxon - (United States of America)

February 24, 2012

I am working on my college assignment, when I take a break and check my cell phone. I received not one but three calls from PCS ( a collection agency) and they left one message urging me to contact a Thomas Williams about an overdue payday advance. I returned his call many times to try to explain that I never received a payday advance loan of any sort. He first claimed it was done in May of 2010 and again in August of 2011. He had my social security number, my name and cell number, and my girlfriend's name.

The account information he had was from a reported lost/stolen prepaid debit card account with greendot. I alleged received a loan of $597.60 that he wanted to settle out of court for $300 dollars.

I checked with greendot and verified the information. I called back and talked with thomas'  supervisor Adam and explained what happened. Adam would not give me the number to Cash Advance Usa, he told me to go online to www.cashadvanceusa.com. I came up with a blank page. I did a google search and found under the search.........this scam. I called Adam back and told him that I knew it was a scam he was involved in and that if I received further calls about this matter I would be forced to contact the authorities.

I hope no one else will have to deal with this like I have and the many others before me have.

scammers that NEED to be STOPPED!

AUTHOR: Richard - (USA)

If these ass holes can't get you at home   or on your cell phone, they will continue calling you at work.  They will be from India, Nigeria, etc., using AMERICAN names and we all know they don't have American names.  Part of the time, there is that accent, you will NEVER be able to understand.  We have NEVER had a LOAN with this place and have even called them, they did research and told us NO, but it just seem to stop these scammers.  Just tell your job if they call your job that you no longer work there.  NEVER talk to this trash, ok?

Scam

AUTHOR: Logenwolvy - (United States of America)

Today I had the same thing happen to me. I got a message that I need to call this number and it was very time sensitive. I call the number and the first thing the guy says in an arabic accent "Is do you have an attorney?' My response is for what.  He tells me I will be arrested tomorrow at work because I have an arrest warrant for not paying back 4 payday loans. I live in Texas and he said I will be taken to California to be sued. He then tells me if I can send $1978.26 in a hour that it will be settled out of court and all charges will be dropped. He then wanted me to stay on the phone with him and go buy prepaid VISA cards to make the payment, no other means of payment was acceptable. I convinced him that I need to get off the phone and go to the store because I was on a land line.  I checked all the phone numbers provided by this person and all come back no name attached to the number.  At this point I realize this is a scam.  I don't call him back so he calls my work and starts yelling at me for not calling him back. I told him is get a hold of my attorney, he says "Your a bloody beggar how can you afford to pay for an attorney and not the fees." My buddy who was listening to this call then asks how he had an American name but had such a strong arabic accent. That was the end of that call he immediately hung up.  I am still receiving calls from numbers I don't but won't answer them.

Same thing

AUTHOR: Helenmarie02 - (United States of America)

 I had the same thing happen to me today. The man continued to call me 7 times after i told him i would contact the police for harassment. They then attacked my boyfriend when he answered the phone. These people have been calling over and over all day long almost every other day. Sometimes will even leave a message. He then tried to get me to give out my social security number when i told him that if he could prove i took out the loan he should have my social and then he kept trying to get me to fall for it. I know for a fact that i do not and never have had a loan with this company. Do not fall for anything they say its all lies and they just want your money!!! Someone needs to stop this!

Cash Advance USA called me all day

AUTHOR: jwzoe - (United States of America)

Someone called my job and told them that there was a legal matter that could result in me losing my job. When I called them, I was told that I had an outstanding payday loan of $300 plus 2000 in legal fees. In order to prevent legal action, I would have to get a green dot pre-paid card and fax them an apology letter and promise to pay. I actually got scared and tried to make a payment but got suspicious when they couldnt give me an account number or reference number. When I began to question them, they got very nasty and told me that they would send me a subpena and send it to my job to try to scare me into paying. I was able to make sure that they didnt get any payment. BEWARE OF CASH ADVANCE USA

Cash Advance USA Scam

AUTHOR: annonymous - (United States of America)

They contacted me today. Said his name was Michael Ray @ 717-612+4596(which is not a working #) the number they called from 717-724-0000 has been disconnected. He stated I was being sued for no payment on the loan that was deposited in my acct in Sept for $400. While on the phone I got online to check my acct. no funds ever. I had checked into some, but never followed thru. When I told him that he said in his accent that he would have to call me back. I said I would stay on the line. He said he was going to lunch and that he would call me later. I then said I wanted to speak to his manager. He stated he did not have one, I said so you answer to know one?? he got rude and said he would call me back. I asked for the phone number and proof in writing for this supposed loan. He said since it was done online, it was not needed. I then asked for Cash Advances phone # he said I would have to go on their website and get it.

I tried to get their #, but on the website you can only email, which I did back to back about 5 times and also sent one regular.

To my suprise I got a call from an Annette ( the company name is now Cash advance now) They are aware of this scam. She verified I had no loan on file and confirmed that it was a scam!! She gave me her # of 888-663-6030 which I called back to verify was a good # which it was. She said if he calls back demand in writing, say to contact your attorney, etc. Do not give any info, ask them to verify what they have on file...more than likely they have last 4 of ssn, and bank acct #. I made the mistake of not asking so I can only guess that they have mine....be careful!!

I am currently being contacted by these people.

AUTHOR: tired_of_scammers - (United States of America)

I keep getting contacted by a guy named Ryan Dillard. He says I owe money to Cash Advance USA, and I'm going to be sued.

He named off all of my  information (last four of social, bank account number, etc.). He says they will contact my work and I will be fired within 2 days and within 3 days I will be served papers to be in court in California.

Yes, I do have an online loan with a company, but not Cash Advance USA.  Everytime I tried to explain to the man that I didn't have an account with them, nor did I apply for a loan with them, he was very rude.

He read me my work phone number. I hung up on them several times.  A few minutes later, I get a call that shows as my work phone number on the caller id.  I answer the phone and it was the same man that said Is this your work number.  I hung up again.

I get several of these calls everyday.  I have learned that it does no good to argue with them and when I told them I know it is a scam, that did no good either. Now I just let my calls go to voice mail when I know it is them.  I don't know what else to do.

If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

By the way, this guy claims he works for the law firm representing the company that is suing me.  He has a really strong accent, as do all of the people you hear talking in the background.  The number they call me from is 661-675-3875.

he did state that he didnt take out the loan...

AUTHOR: Alaneaatl - (United States of America)

Actually, he did state he didnt take out the loan. In addition, the bank account the company claimed to deposit it to wasn't even open at the time.

EXCERT: I then told him before I say anything further I was going to check my bank account for this transaction because If I owe it Ill pay it but Im 100% sure this transaction never took place

EXCERT: I called my bank and the particular Month he said this transaction took place my account had not even been opened

I too have received an email from a person doing this. According to the FBI, if you ahve ever applied for a payday loan online or offline, those companies DO sell your information.

I just got the same call

AUTHOR: alias - (United States of America)

I just received the same exact call on my job. He said there are some charges being filed against me. I asked for what. He said he is going to read the affidavit and told me not to interrupt him. He had an accent too. He said that I took out a payday loan with Cash Advance USA last year using my US Bank account and that I wrote them bad checks and have closed my account. First of all my US Bank account is just 1 month old...I asked for his name and told him I was going to report him. He said he is going to have the state of California police and my police to come to my job and pick me up in 24 hours then he hung up in my face.  And I know for a fact I haven't taken out a payday loan. That is just crazy that people are trying to scam others.

Supposedly "Law office of John Morrison"

AUTHOR: 2011k - (United States of America)

I received a call today 06/04/2011 from a man with a very strong accent. He said his name was kevin johnson and he left his number 9092337338 on my voicemail saying to have my attorney call and if not that he wishes me luck.  So i called back to the number he actually called from 619-320-0434 and got a man named Michael Carter "supposedly"....(both these men had strong accents i don't know any Arabians with English names who have strong ass accents..just saying) So anyways he went on to say I was being sued for going bad on a loan. I was like "who is this" he said LAW OFFICE of JOHN MORRISON located in San Diego, CA. I asked what loan are u talking about. He then got rude and told me don't cut him off and hung up on me. I called back and asked same questions he then said that the name of the loan company was "GROUP ASSOCIATION OF CASH ADVANCE ONLINE" as soon as he said online i knew he was lying cause i never took out a loan online, i applied but never went through with it. He said the amount was for $200.00. I told him i never took out a loan online and he said i was lying how would he have my ssn and bank info that i was being charged with 3 things. Defaulting on the loan, Bounced Check, & fraud. I started probing him for more questions saying who are u, let me speak to your manager whats ur corp. address ect. He said there is no manager available and then hung up on me. I called back multiple times and this business phone suddenly became a cell phone that there able to turn off cause my calls were being routed to voice mail. They eventually answered and he started saying things like "im going to fk ur mom, can i fk you? where do u live?" I told him what kind of law office is this that u can disrespect people like that?....I recorded the conversation and saved the voice mail that they left me. When I call back they answer saying "suck my dk" and other rude things so im sure its a fraud. But One of the guys "Kevin Johnson" who also hung up on me and said rude things sometimes acts like he never talked to me before and says "I'll call you back with more info." and never calls but i spoke to both numbers with two diffrent people who both yelled ob-sanities so be aware it is a fraud.

Cash Advance USA

AUTHOR: Karen - (United States of America)

This just happened to me also. They called my house 13 time in four hours. I told them I was contacting my lawyer to file harassment and fraud charges on them.



They were very rude and tried to get any money they could. I'm not going to give them a dime, I told them I could prove to them by my bank records that I did not receive any money.



How long before they give up and quit calling? They are really starting to make me angry.

Cash Advance USA

AUTHOR: Nikita9d - (United States of America)

I literally just received a call from Cash Advance USA. A man stated that I had taken out a payday advance loan in the amount of $350.00. I informed the man that this must in fact be fraud because I had never taken a payday advance loan from their company. The man the stated that he was going to transfer me to his supervisor who then informed me that charges were about to be pressed against me for fraud. I asked him the specific date the money was supposidly deposited in my account. The only information the man could provide was October 2010. He told me the name of my bank and the last four of both my bank acct number and my ssn. What the man didn't know was that I while he was on the phone giving me his speech I actually went online to my online banking page. I had no deposits ever from their company. I then informerd the man that I had never received such a loan and that he needed to provide me with the number to cash advance usa so that i could call them and fax over a copy of my transactions for the month of October so that they'd see they must have the wrong person. The man then became rude with me and told me that he couldn't give me the number because now I had to deal with him, that law enforcement was going to show up at my from door to arrest me for skipping out of a loan. I told him that there was no need to get rude; that I'm sure plenty of people gets loans they don't pay back but I'm not that person and that all I was attempting to do is get the specifics so that I can get to the bottom of this. He then started getting louder with me and ended the call screaming have fun in jail and hu. I immediately began searching for cash advance usa's actual telephone number when I came across this article. I then knew that omg they were attempting scam me. It's scary because of the little information they do know but it would've been even scarier had I actually believed them. Honestly if anyone actually finds cash advance usa's phone number I would love to call them to give them a piece of my mind. The number they called me from is: 760-383-1867----SCAM ARTISTS

You Must Have Missed

AUTHOR: David - (United States of America)

You must have missed the part when I said I was 100% sure that the transaction I was being accused of never took place.

But just being on the safe side I did all my research to indeed prove I had never made this transaction, by getting my bank statements to have so that if for whatever reason Iam takin to court I have proof that there was never any deposit of this $300.00. No need to panick on my end other than the fact that some stranger has alot of my personal information. So now Iam going to take all the correct steps into protecting this and letting the proper people know whats happened.

Iam just trying to make others aware, dont fall for this......

Time to guard your identity

AUTHOR: Flynrider - (U.S.A.)

It has become clear from numerous reports of this scam, that the scammers have come into posession of a large amount of personal information, including names, addresses, phone numbers, references, bank acct. numbers and social security numbers. Most of those reporting the scam indicate that at some time in the past, they filled out an online loan application. My guess is that these scammers have obtained (most likely illegally) a large database of this personal info.

 While these particular scammers are only using the info to try to make themselves appear to be a legitimate collector, that does not mean they couldn't sell the info to some other criminal when they are done with it. The amount of information they are revealing on these phone calls is enough to allow anyone to steal your identity.

 If you've received one of these scam calls, you should consider your identity to be at risk. I highly recommend going to the FTC's identity theft website and taking the precautions outlined there :
