ED Magedson – Founder
FAST CASH INTERNATIONAL, California United States of America
On or about 9/10/09 I began receiving phone calls from someone saying her name was Venus Johnson stating that it was imperative that she talk to me. She had a very strong accent (from India) that I could barely understand. She said that something very terrible had happened and she needed to speak with me immediately.
I ignored the calls for about a week but they became so bothersome that I called the number that she left on Setember 19, 2009. It was 215-279-5922, although the call came in from 810-676-161 which is obviously an international number. The first person I spoke with was Jason Daisy who also had a very strong accent from India. He told me that I had taken out a payday loan from Fast Cash International on 12-28-2008 in the amount of $350.00 which I never repaid.
Therefore, I had 3 federal charges against me and that there would be a federal agent at my post office where I work on Monday, September 21, 2009 to arrest me. I informed him that I have never taken a loan and that there must be a mistake.
He was very rude and told me that he had all of my information including my social security number, bank account number, where I worked, my brothers name and a friends name as a reference and that he could assure me that there was no mistake. He said that my brother and friend were also named in the charges and they would be picked up as well. I was at work delivering mail at that time so I decided to end the call and do a little checking when I got home.
After returning home, I went online to verify that there had not been any deposit into my account and then began a search for the phone number to Fast Cash International. What I found was numerous rip-off reports for the same.
I decided to call the number back and try to get some more information. During the second call I was told that I had taken out a payday loan in March of 2009 for $300.00 with the same results. I then told them that I spoke with someone earlier and they told me that I had one in December of 2008. He then told me that I had two.
I played along and asked him which bank this was deposited into and he proceeded to read me my bank account routing number and account number along with my social security number. He said he worked for the Federal Legislation of Unsecured Loans and that I would have to appear in the Superior Court of California at 210 Lake Villa Circle, Petaluma, California 94954 with my defense attorney. He also mentioned the Federal Trade Commision.
I have filed this report with my local police department who will in-turn contact the FBI.
I hope this helps someone else.
