ED Magedson – Founder
John Smith, Senior Affidavit Processor Officer/Utica, New York Said that I owe US Cash Advance money, which I never borrowed! Threatened me with 7 years in jail! Internet
First, they sent email to me at an email address that wasn't mine. Then they had included a phone number that was way out-dated. I called thinking, okay, these guys are going to help. But as soon as they answered, I knew I wasn't talking to no John Smith. This guy had a foreign accent, and so did the guy that was in the background. I could hear the other guy, egging the so called John Smith on what to say.
They said that there is a lawsuit against me for fraud and criminal activities, which I know that is false. They threatened that I would be arrested within 2 hours if I don't pay a settlement of $412.00. They also said, if I don't pay, I need to show up in Court in New York, within 7 days, or I'll be thrown into jail for 7 years.
This is the actual email they sent, the only change is that I removed my personal info and name:
Mr. /Mrs. My Name
