Advance Cash USA Ricky Williams ACS fake loan, Internet
A friend called me, very upset. She had received a call at work, indicating I had committed internet fraud relative to a loan. I called the number she had been given, was transferred to someone named Ricky Williams (heavy middle east accent), who began giving me information regarding a past address, email address and bank (all not current for 20 months). He advised I had accepted a loan from Advance Cash USAand had not paid it back. As this was not true, I began asking for proof and was advised he did not have to provide proof, but that I would need to hire an attorney and sue. As this would cost me money, wouldn't it be easier to pay them back? I again repeated his information was false, but he just kept telling me to hire an attorney. AND, that he was going to proceed with legal action against me. I told him to go ahead, as I did not owe the money and could prove it with bank paperwork. I further advised him that the actions of his company were illegal.
This seems to be a scam, with the goal of paying someone money in order to avoid hiring an attorney.
