This is not the first time they have sent an email to me - all of which end up in my spam folder, but which I see when I go into it as I always double-check the folder prior to doing my mass deletes. I think the last time I received one was late in 2018 or early 2019, so they arrive every 4 to 6 months.

I have reported them in the past, and research indicates that this is a nationwide scam, reported to various states' attornies general, and allegedly unrelated to the real Ace Cash Express which claims to be aware of these incidents. Since this scam has been going for nearly a decade, I am adding the most recent to this long line of reports to make people aware so that you don't get fooled. The message has been copied and pasted below in its' entirety, except that any supposed tracking numbers/account numbers have been replaced by *

We are going to be legally prosecuted in the Court House within couple of days. Your SSN is put on hold by US Government, so before something goes wrong we would like to notify you about this matter. It seems apparent that you have chosen to ignore all our efforts to contact you in order to resolve your debt with Payday Services. At this point you have made your intentions clear and leave us no choice but to protect our interest in this matter.

 

Your line of credit is over 60 days past due, but it is not too late to restore your good standing!  

 

We want to serve as your trusted financial resource in the future, but to do that; we’ll need to come to an agreement on the past-due balance.

 

If you believe you are unable afford the payment options we have offered, contact us right away by phone or email and we will do our best to accommodate an amount you can commit to.

 

ANY IGNORANCE/NEGLIGENCE WILL FORCE US TO FORWARD THIS CASE TO THE COURT HOUSE IN ORDER TO DISPUTE THIS MATTER & ONCE THE CASE WILL BE DISPUTED THEREAFTER THE COURT PAPERS WILL BE FORWARDED TO YOU WITHIN NEXT SEVEN BUSINESS DAYS AT YOUR PERMANENT ADDRESS.

 

AND ONE COPY OF THE COURT PAPERS WILL BE FORWARDED TO YOUR EMPLOYER WHICH WAS USED AS REFERENCE MENTIONED BELOW:

 

 EMPLOYER:

 

UNITED LEGAL INVESTIGATION BUREAU HAS STATED 3 SERIOUS ALLEGATIONS AGAINST YOU

(1) VIOLATION OF FEDERAL BANKING REGULATION 
(2) COLLATERAL CHECK FRAUD 
(3) THEFT BY DECEPTION

 

Now, this means few things for you. If you are under any state probation or payroll we need you to inform your superior or manager what you have done in the past and what would be the consequences once the case has been downloaded and executed in your name. If we do not hear from you within 48 hours of the date on this letter, we will be compelled to seek legal representation from our in-house attorney. We reserve the right to commence litigation for intent to commit wire fraud under the pretense of refusing to repay a debt committed to, by use of the internet. In addition we reserve the right to seek recovery for the balance due, as well as legal fees and any court cost incurred.

 

 WE HAVE ALL THE RIGHTS RESERVED TO INFORM TO FBI, FTC, YOUR EMPLOYER AND BANK ABOUT FRAUD.

 

We are offering you the settlement amount of $412.63 if you can pay by today and your account will be considered as paid in full with zero balance.

 

 

If you would like to make a one-time final payment to settle your account, we can waive all fees and freeze the existing cash advance thus taking your balance down from $935.63 to $412.63 and accepting $412.63 as a one-time final payment. 

 

And once you found guilty into the court house than you have to bear the entire cost for this law suit $4971.55 which is excluding loan amount, attorney's fees, and the interest charges. You have the right to hire an attorney. If you don't have one or if you can't afford then one will be appointed to you We believe that this was not your intent and that these steps are unnecessary. We merely require you to contact our recovery asset location department between 9.30 to 6.30 (EST).

The shocking thing...

AUTHOR: John - (United States)

POSTED: Wednesday, January 22, 2020

 ...is how many people will fall for such a blatant scam. The grammar is awful, the red flags are everywhere, it ends with "United States of Attorney" and is littered with badly-translated semi-English, but there are STILL people who will panic, call, and get scammed without even showing this letter to anyone else. Unbelievable.
