I got a call yesterday from Fast Cash International from a Francis Lopez. He stated there were 3 federal charges against me for Internet fraud, grand theft and something else. told me if I didn't pay 890.39 I would be arrested. He also told me to get a criminal attorney. I have a personal attorney, gave him his info, he stated this is not a criminal attorney and will not do you any good.

I happened to be on the internet when he called so I googled the company name and sure enough, I saw it was a scam. I asked him the name of the Payday Loan company I "got" the loan from. He said he didn't have that info but I was in real trouble and headed to jail. He stated our call was recorded, I was not to interrupt him until he finished talking. He also told me my attorney was to call him immediately.

I told him it was saturday and the office was closed. He told me to call my attorney at home and have him call him back. I then stated if he needed to talk to my attorney HE could call him on monday. He had my name, last 4 of my social security #, the name of my bank, place of employment, my address and the names of 2 of my family members.

Having my personal info bothers me. but I am relieved to know this is happening to others and its a scam. The # that showed up on my caller ID is 810-676-161. Not a legit USA # but the call back # 951-643-4350 is legit and they answer with "Hello", no company name.

PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS FRAUD. I am putting this under Federal Government as he said he worked for the FBI

Fast Cash International update

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

This group of thieves (thats what they are) are unbelievable!  They 1st tried me last June/July, then a couple of weeks ago, now we are on round 3!  They called me again Tuesday 9-22-09, I cannot give a name because the english spoken was so broken I had trouble understanding the 1st guy so another guy got on the phone.  I recognized the # 810-676-161.  I acted like I had no clue what this was about.  He went thru the same BS, name, ssn, phone #.  He asked me to very all the info and I refused.  He started screaming at me, I wasn't really in the mood to be bothered once again by this scammer scum, so I unloaded, will not say here what I said to him but it was not nice!  If they are ever ignorant enough to go for round 4, I will blow a whistle so d**n hard I hope it blows their ear drum out.  I give them an A+ for tenacity, but they flunked big time with me.  I refuse to change my phone number so I will continue to deal with it my way, and I promise you, they are not going to like it.  They will however learn new english swear words, that is if they can still hear!

As in my previous posts/updates and everyone else here, they are trash, off shore scammers. NEVER, EVER pay them a cent, verify any personal info and by no means do not let them intimidate you. 

Until my next call, be careful, be alert, be aware and play smart.

3 months later, they try again

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

These idiots will not go away!  They called me this morning, I recognized the #810-676-161 immediately.  I played along with them, after they were done with their "recording" I told them I had kept them on the line long enough for the authorities to trace the call.  He asked what I was talking about, I told him it is a known fact in the USA that this was a scam and they had already tried me last June, it didn't work then and it won't work now.  I hope my 2 references are not harrassed by these jerks like they were before.

Just wanted to update everyone, just when you think you are done with them, they try again!

He stated his name was James Dean, with an Indian accent!

I have the same problem

AUTHOR: Ekim2821 - (U.S.A.)

I too have the same problem. They told me I took a payday loan out online in March of 2008. They couldnt give me a exact day. All they could tell me was my last 4 of my social, my address, my bank, and phone number. They told I would be charged for fraud and 2 other charges. Now here is the kicker I was in Boot camp for the Marines in all of March 2008, so I had no internet access. On top of that I closed that bank account the day before I left for boot camp. But thye still insist I should just settle with them and avoid court and paying the cost. Today I called them back and all they would tell me for their address was that they are in westren Flordia. I kept insisting for a address and she hung up on me.

On thursday 7-2-2009 2 of my relatives had threatening calls from James Williams, State Investigation Dpt, NY. He stated I owed money and used them as references. I had in the past gotten a payday loan online and paid it off. He told my contacts that they were going to jail because of my debt. He became very abusive to them, said he knew where they were and was coming after them. He then called me, I asked if this was related to Fast Cash International and he said yes. I told him this was a scam and to leave us alone. He called me back Monday 7-6-2009 demanding I pay 820.29. Itold him I was not paying anything to him that I do not owe on any payday loans and to not call again.

I called the U.S. Attorney in Washington D.C.. I filed a report, told them James Williams work place, I was told there is no such place that this is a scam, not to pay them anything and to hang up if they call back. I was also told to call the Credit Bureau and put a fraud alert on my credit reports. I did, then viewed my reports online and noticed someone (not me) had tried to purchase an automobile here in Springfield last January 2009. I had bought a vehicle from this lot in June 2008. Not only am I being scammed I am also the victim of identify theft and have no idea who it could be.

Back to Fast Cash International and BMG @ Bahama Marketing Group: They are working hand in hand, this told to me by the U.S. Attorney General. They are very aware of this scam....do not pay them anything. A legitimate creditor will send a notice by mail on any money you owe them. They will also tell you over the phone their mailing address, date of debt, company owed. These scammers cannot tell you anything other that they want money right now, over the phone.

PLEASE IGNORE THESE PEOPLE.

As everyone can see on this website, these 2 scammers have been very busy. There are thousands of people getting these calls that have not found this site yet.
