Cash Advance USA - SCAM - I was receiving calls with messages left at my place of employment all hours of the night, and weekends.  I would call the number back to Percy Jackson and get messages that it was an out of country call and could not be returned or they number would lead to a pickup with nothing but a beep.  A message was left that if I did not call be in 24 hours, I would be very sorry as he wished me luck with the fate that was about to befall me.  By the way Percy Jackson had what appeared to be a very very thick Indian accent.  I could also hear a lot of chatter behind him indicating it was  a call center.  Percy finally connected with me today and gave me a number to call, as he was only a paralegal and could give me not information and he was really only suppose to get the name and contact information for my attorney as I was being sued by Cash Advance USA.  He would tell me nothing more.  I called the first number he gave me 541-295-5685 and it lead to the pickup and the beep, beep - nothing more.  I was suppose to ask for Kenneth Lutzer, Attorney.  He called back when they did not hear from me and asked if I had tried to call and I indicated I did, three times, and the phone did not lead to anyone.  He gave me an alternate number 415-484-2132 and I reached a woman and was told to advise her Percy had called me.  She started in about me be sued, I interrupted her and asked her name.  She told me is was Christina Reed - with a very very thick Indian Accent.  I told her I was to speak with Kenneth Lutzer, the attorney and she indicated she did not know Kenneth Lutzer as she was the attorney and why was I getting rude.  I was shocked, I advised her I was just asking who she was.  I was told to quit talking and listen to her and she would tell me.  She proceeded to tell me I was being sued by Cash Advance USA in the sum of $699.00 and I needed to pay it then and there.  I asked for a copy of some documentation and she indicated she could not send it to me, she needed my attorney information.  I told her she had to send me notification so I could give it to my attorney, and she indicated she was not allowed to do that.  Then proceeded to tell me that if I did not pay within 30 minutes, as this is time sensitive, a warrant was going to be issued for my arrest at my place of employment and I would then have to go to court and would be responsible for $7,400.87 in costs.  REALLY!

I advised her, then I was getting arrested as I have not got the money at this time.  Again,  I was told I was being rude and need to settle this now.  I told her good-bye as I had to research this company that is suppose to be sueing me.  I then found that there were all these ripp-off reports on the same company and the issues.  I called the FBI, who was aware of this Fraud and they gave me numbers to call to protect my identity.  They knew my work, phone numbers, social security number (but apparently, only the last four digits) - that was real red flag.   I was told to contact the Federal Trade Commission, Trans Union Credit and put in a Fraud Alert - it would go to all the other credit bureaus and the consumer line fo the Attorney General's office in my state.
