It's a ponzi scam. They make you trust them and then that's when you get scammed. I have police report on them and may go to the FBI. They want you to go get Green Dot cards, load them up and then they put money in your account and take it out. They have what is called burn phones, non traceable phones. Once they are used them up they get another number and try to sucker someone else.
For instance, if a looming credit card or other loan payment is jeopardizing your ability to pay for basic expenses, see if you can work out a deal. “If you’re having trouble making your monthly payments, call your lender to ask for more time,” suggests Natasha Rachel Smith, consumer affairs expert at rebate website TopCashback. “You’d be surprised how willing they are to work with you on your payment schedule. … It pays to be transparent.”
Both men had Middle Eastern accents. The second guy kept saying "While on this federally recorded line are you willing to settle this situation"? I kept laughing at him saying that to attempt to scare me. I said I don't know what you're talking about and I know that this is a scam so I won't be paying anything, will be calling the Consumer Protection Bureau, and please take my number off of your call list at which time I was hung up on.
I kept getting text messages, no legit phone calls, just texts. Now today they're threatening to take me to court, tell my employer etc for a $300 loan. Told them they can tell whoever, garnish my wages (I'm retired) etc., This was in an email they sent today 9/13/17. Now my loan is close to $1K due to interest etc. I just laughed. I don't take LOANS out for $300. I either write a check or use credit card. They want me to settle today for the $300. I'll never settle. Told them I'll have my lawyers ready also. I dont know who Cash Advance USA is anyway, let alone loan from them. Then I googled all this - it's a SCAM!! Must be bunch of out of work "lawyers" that are trying to scam people & scare them. I told them to bring it on, I'm ready! Ridiculous - get a real job!
Payday loans grant you access to emergency funds that can help you deal with debts that pile up due to unexpected incidents. For example, a medical emergency could render you too sick to work, but the cost of a doctor could be too much for your current funds. No money, no doctor. No doctor, no work. No work, no money. Unfortunate cycles like this can lock you into a no-win situation.
Several consumers also reported receiving phone calls from entities attempting to collect debts owed to Cash Advance, Cash Advance Group, and US Cash Advance. Some of the collection calls came from people who called themselves Brian Wilson, John Murphy, Jim Spencer, and Andrew Martin. Some calls also came from a person claiming to work for Peterson Law Group and Debt Collection USA.
Once you determine that cash advances are allowed, you’ll need to request one. Some companies have a formal process in place, while others may allow you to speak privately with your supervisor. Experts suggest that employees approach this conversation tactfully. Time it so you don’t ask when things are hectic at work and prepare a good argument for why you need the advance and why it’s urgent.6
Do not neglect to remember that this is not a permanent solution. Think of it as the bubble gum you put on the leaky pipe while you go get the tools to fix it properly. If you let it leak without the bubble gum while you go get your tools, the water could cause all kinds of damage. If you take too long to get your tools, or if you simply let the bubble gum be your only fix, it will not hold and the same damage could occur. All the gum did was delay the fallout. Alternatively, if you go get your tools and get things taken care of while the bubble gum does its job, you can have the whole problem fixed and avoid virtually any damage in the process. Used wisely, a cash advance can help you avoid further financial damage.
For most people, a cash advance (also known as a payday advance) is something associated with a credit card or other line of credit. Many credit card companies make it easy for customers to receive cash advances nearby by using their credit card at a local ATM. The problem with such tactics is that the costs of the advance can add up quickly and you might not even realize what all those costs are. You'll likely pay an ATM fee charged by the bank that runs the machine, and you might also pay a fee to the credit card company for taking the advance, along with finance charges and interest if you don't pay the money back before your next billing cycle. Some credit card companies charge interest on cash advances that is higher than the interest charged on regular balances, which can make for surprising increases in your total balance.
