CASHWEBUSA and Freedman and Assoc (collecting for them) illegal loans and illegal threats of jail time with faked phone number Columbus Ohio
I got ripped off bad. I was desperate for some money and took a loan from CASH WEB USA who is based out of Costa Rica.
The loan was for 600.00 and after paying nearly 1800.00 I revoked the ACH authorization on them.
Further investigation revealed that they are not licensed to do business in the State if Indiana where I reside.
Then come the phone calls...First one is from my bankruptcy attorney's phone number on a Saturday where the caller identifies himself as a worker at the attorney's office and stating that I need to call this number asap and make a settlement with these guys before Monday (was Saturday) or the attorney had papers stating I would be arrested on Monday for wire fraud.
I was suspicious as I know my attorney very well, but I took down all the info the guy gave me.
Then what set it off was I get another call a few minutes later from a number out of Arizona, and it's the same guy calling saying he is working at an attorney' office down there and that this female person needed to call the same number and make payment arrangements asap or SHE was gong to jail the follwoing Monday.
The guy was digging out public records on folks and spoofing their attorney's numbers and claiming to be a rep for the attorney, all the while it was work for CASH WEB USA.
I told the guy he was an idiot on the second call cause he'd redailed my number acting like a differnt persons's attorney and he stuttered for just one second and then proceeded to call me a dead beat, ect ect and said he made 200k per years doing this.
I hung up.
Now fast forward two months and another call comes in from a guy claiming to be a Sherriff deputy who says her has to serve me unless...wait for it....I call this number he has and make payment arrangements or he will come and arrest me on the following Monday. I called him every name in the book and hung up, to which he proceeded to call back 4 times in a 2 minute period, which only resulted in me calling him bad names.
Then I get panicked calls from my employer, the scum bag called my HR and did the same thing.
OK, I'll bite, so I call this number and an answering maching says "Freedman and Associates" in a very official sounding legal law office sort of way.
So I get this gal on the phone and her name was Gloria James, I give her the claim number and scary thing is they have my social and work numbers and all kinds of public records on me.
She sounds all mean and angry at evil me for canceling my 3000.00 payback fee on the 600.00 dollar loan. I ask for some info on the company and she gives me an address in Ohio, then I ask for a local number and she gets furious and says fine go to jail on Monday then Mr. XXX
DONT ever do business with CASH WEB USA, they are illegal in the United States and they use illegal tactic to try and collect, including but not limited to threatoning jail time, impersonating attorneys, impersonating law enforcement, spoofing legitimate phone numbers from legitimate entities.
They should get thrown in jail all the perpetrators of these acts.
Partly my fault for being foolish and taking a loan with them.
Yes this is a true story.
