I got a phone call about 4 days ago but ignored it because I couldn't understand the mans talking on the voicemail. That number was 818-337-1293 from the Northern LA Area. The man had a very heavy Indian accent that was very hard to understand but in the message he said his name was John MaCoy and that it was a time sensitive matter.
After ignoring that call I got another one yesterday from what was supposedly Cash Advance America. It was the same guy as the first number but this was a different number. It was 916-287-3815. He said that I owed his company $599.99. He said that they had tried to take it out of my account many times and it had gotten declined each time. They only had my name and place of work though so unlike some of the other people they did not have all of my info. When he called I accidently said the "f-word" because he was saying that I was going to get pick up at my work by the cops. I told him good luck since I didn't work the next five days. All he said was ok. Not that they would come get me at my house.
I kept telling him that I was hard of hearing and that I couldn't understand his accent and asked to speak to someone else. The first time I said that to him he said it wasn't that I couldn't understand him but that I was ignorent and stupid and didn't want to listen. He then hung up on me.
When I called back because I wanted this delt with he never once asked my name and I ended up having to call many times because he kept hanging up on me. He kept telling me there was no one else I could talk to. That he was the one dealing with my case. He said he was going to charge me with harrasment and abuse because I kept calling me back and kept saying all these different "lawyer code" I will call it for lack of a better word as to what he would charge me with.
I finally told him I could pay him on Friday and he accepted that after much fighting to get him to because he wanted me to borrow it from someone that day and pay him that second. He told me that on Friday I needed to go to a Walgreens in my town and then call his direct line at 415-237-1613. He said I should bring an extra $10 dollars with so I could pay to get him the money. He said I should call that number after I got to Walgreens so he could explain what I needed to do.
After we hung up I was in a blind panic thinking was going to be arrested so I call my mother and explained everything to her. She called the guy and made up an excuse to talk to him about me and he gave her information. I am 26 years old and that guy told my mother everything that was going on.
She called me back and told me to call the police. I did. I made a report over the phone and they said that they have gotten many calls from people about this same company and that they couldn't do anything the man on the phone was saying.
This includes him getting me arrested, taken to court, losing my job, losing my ID, losing my SS#, and many more threats of this sort.
I am very upset about this and I hope more people dont end up with this same problem happening to them.
