On Tuesday, May 12, 2009 I received a call at work from a man named Jason Daesee. He had a very thick accent and the connection was bad. He told me that a lawsuit was being filed against me at 5:30 that afternoon on three counts. He said I would be served with papers at my work at 11 the next morning at the personnel department at work. I was advised that I should bring my lawyer and that if I didn't have a lawyer one would be provided to me for $1,000.00. When I told him I had no idea what he was talking about, he said that I had taken out a payday loan and had failed to pay it back. I started asking questions like when was this loan taken out, how much it was for and why no one had contacted me before this. He acted surprised and said he couldn't believe no one had contacted me. He said he could not give me any information as they didn't have it. I was scared to death. I asked him what I could do. He said that if he could put me on hold, he would contact the lender and see what he could do. After 5 minutes on hold he came back and said "Well it was hard work, but I got the lender to agree to settle out of court." He asked me if I wanted to do that. I said yes and he said that I needed to write an apology letter and have it notorized and faxed to his office immediately. Then he said the lender would settle for 1029.26 but that I needed to give him my credit card number now. When I told him that I did not have my credit card at work and that I could not leave work until 4 he said he'd give me until 6:00 that night to call him back. I got off the phone and called my husband who was convinced it was a scam and he tried to call the number back that I was given. It just rang and rang. In the mean time I had called the Los Angelos Superior Court where Jason had said the law suit was filed and they had no record of any lawsuit filed in my name. The woman at the court house said it was probably a scam too. Jason called me back around 4:30 on my cell phone. When I informed him that I had called the court house and my attorney and that no law suit had been filed in my name he started getting really nasty. He called me on my cell phone every minute for 2 hours leaving nasty messages about all the horrible things that were going to happen to me. When I got home I googled Fast Cash International and started reading all of the comments on ripoff report and was now convinced it was a scam. They were word for word what Jason said to me! On Wednesday he started calling my work again. The secretary refused to put him through to me. He started getting nasty with her. After 5 calls to her and 5 more on my cell phone he finally stopped calling. Please, please don't pay these people. I am so glad that I didn't have my credit card at work or I would've paid them. Everything he said sounded very official and he scared me. Part of me was convinced I was going to jail, but the more I thought about it, nothing he said added up. I knew I hadn't taken out a laan and I also knew that collection companies will contact you in many different ways and will also let you make payments. Thank you for this website. It really helped!
