Cash Advance America Cash Advance America - Harrassing and Threatning Phone Calls Unknown, California
Several times a day over the last couple weeks, we have been receiving phone calls from 951-253-3313. When we answered the phone, there was either music, or it hung up.
Today, when I called back, a man with a thick accent, probably Indian, asked for my wife. When I gave the phone to her, he verified her name, and when she tried to inquire what the call was about, he told her to just shut up and listen then proceeded to threaten her with an indictment from the California Attorney General over an unpaid loan.
When I found out he was being so rude to put it mildly, to my wife, I took the phone back, and began to inquire what company he was associated with, and the Cash Advance America was all I got. He had no details, and after I inquired more, he hung up.
I blocked the number, but am still getting voice mail messages from this guy.
I called our South Carolina Attorney General's office, and they called the number, said it was a scam, and referred me to the California consumer affairs office, where I made a report.
Looking at the length of time from the beginning of these posts, apparently no one cares if this scam ever stops operating.
My wife has a nervous condition, and I almost had to take her to the doctor today because she was shaken so badly.
It is a shame that these criminals are just brushed off the way they are. They do just as much damage psychologically, emotionally, and if someone believes them, financially as being mugged on the street.
When will cyber laws catch up with physical laws?
Anyway, there is a website Cash-Advance-America, and even they have a disclaimer if someone calls you about a bill from them, it is a scam.
