ED Magedson – Founder
usa fast cash internationalSEATLE, Washington United States of America
I have recently received some phone calls from someone calling themself Officer Nick Anderson of the Department of Criminal and Information out of Seattle Washington. Does this sound familiar to any of you. I know that it does.
His claim was that I had taken out a payday loan from USA FASTCASH INT., in April of this year, had failed to repay as agreed and now was being sued by above named company. His point in calling me, so he stated, was so that I could negotiate a lesser fee, (if his lawyer agrees) which would then allow him(Nick Anderson)to not "download" my file to the court system, thereby letting me avoid being prosecuted for check forgergy, internet theft and just plain stupidity.
He said that the law suit was for 5000 dollars(I assume it was US currency even tho he was not USA) and that I must act immediately. I was at work so I told him that I would call him back after 3pm. He said that his office worked off of Eastern Central Time. I thought WHAT! and asked him if he was in Seattle Washington or not. He thought and then said yes but that his particular office used Eastern Central and not Pacific Mountain time where Seattle is located. RED FLAG!!
Basically he wanted me to commit to a sum of money today or all bets were off, I was going to jail, get sued and would probably commit harry cary if I did not agree. I didn't know which one to choose so I chose none of the above. I told him to find somewhere to stick it of his choice because I didn't care where.
I know that there is a difference between criminal activity and civil actions. They can intertwine but the "officers" that perform these two separate functions do not have authority to bypass these functions.
These people are using extortion to rob from good folk who they deem are easy targets. Good on those that did not give them the fear that they wanted, but to those that did, all is well, just don't worry, it's fake and don't give anything else. Yes, they have certain personal information, but they do not have your banking, or all of your SS#. They hijacked all this information off some other application that was submitted via the Internet. That's called ID Theft. If they get money from you thru intimidation and threats, that' callled Extortion. When they lied to you and wouldn't give return information, that's called Fraud.
Unscrupulous, mobster style tactics designed to belittle us into willingly giving them our account information and thereby, our money and livelyhood. I have called the DA here and am awaiting information back. If they won't quite, neither will I.
Remember, if they had all the information prior to the call, they would not have had to call. They would have simply robbed us blind without so much as a Thank You.
