ED Magedson – Founder
First Cash International??? Hughson, California United States of America
This person called claiming to be with the Federal Attorney's office, saying that I have 3 Federal indictments against me. The first was (supposedly) for violation of the Federal Banking laws. He said that I had refused to pay back a payday loan. I was angered, and said, "First; I haven't collected any monies from anyone..2nd; if I was being indicted, someone would be knocking at my door. Don't call me back."
After calming down a little, calling F.D.I.C. for info.(only number I could find), and my bank to check on any unusual activities,..and, oh yes, checking my credit reports, I nerved myself to call back to the number left on my caller I.D.
I did call back, asking if I had reached a company. He claimed I had reached an attorney's office. I gave my name, and phone # (only after asked), and he said that I was being sued for non-payment of a payday loan.
I started demanding info. from him, asking for the exact date of the loan. He said he couldn't give me the date, only that it was from before May of 2009. He gave an amount of $789 and some odd change that I supposedly owed, and stated that I would have to go to California to answer to the charges.
He gave me my brother's name, and my mother's name as references, but only their first names. He also stated that an affadavit would arrive Monday afternoon for me.
I demanded to know the birthday that he had listed for me, firmly. I said, "When is my birthday?" He had no answer. I repeated the question, more forcefully, and he said, "I'm sorry, ma'am; No problem, ma'am." and he hung up.
Then I decided to look this business up, and the only traces I have found of it have been rip-off reports.
It is disturbing to think that someone can get away with posing as a member of the federal government.
