If you carry only credit cards for day-to-day spending, you could find yourself in a pinch when confronted with a cash-only situation, such as buying lunch from a street vendor, veggies at a farmers market or a sandwich at a mom-and-pop deli. In that case, a cash advance might be tempting. Some people also turn to credit card cash advances when they need paper money but don’t have enough in their bank account.

Had pulled out a few online loans that I was in the process of paying down and I received a phone call similar to those listed. A man with an Indian accent left me a message I could not understand but a few words, one of which being lawyer. Stated the same previously stated, that they had tried to pull money via an electronic check and that instead of trying to fight for the money, they closed the account and filed it as a loss. They were in turn deciding to file a lawsuit against me and an affidavit has been filed against me and I had to appear in court. The affidavit had been filed in my local state and I should have been contacted by the sheriff last week. I had not been and had gotten no other notices about this. In my pure panic I didn't ask all the questions I should have the first time around. I got on the phone and started calling courthouses here in Colorado Springs to try and find out when the court date was. Come to find there were no court dates. Was taking the court date seriously because I had missed a court date here for a traffic case and they arrested me and I spent the say in jail. Not a fun day. So, I decided to call the number back and the guy was very unprofessional which raised my suspicions. I started to ask the questions I should have asked the first time around. I asked what company it was, his reply being "Cash Advance USA". I looked back through my papers and that was not the company I had gone through. So then I asked, ok, do you have a case number and a court date? He said, yes, you are to appear in court today at 5:00 pm. I said, wow, ok, where at. He replied San Francisco court. I was like, ok, how does this make sense, you said that the case has been filed in my local state, and I've received no communications about this prior to today and you're telling me you don't have a case number and that I have to appear in San Francisco today. Really? He made some smug remarks and then it got quiet.... and he hung up on me. Thank God for this site and coming across these reports cause I was freaking out. They didn't tell me any information that was personal, account numbers, social or anything like that, but I am still all the same very concerned. The number they called on was 1-213-261-5794. They didn't tell me any amounts that I owed and he did also give me the same, do not interrupt me, you can ask questions after I am done. Anyway, hopefully others don't fall prey to these guys.

Customer Notice: Payday Loans are typically for two-to four-week terms (up to six months in IL). Some borrowers, however, use Payday Loans for several months, which can be expensive. Payday Loans (also referred to as Payday Advances, Cash Advances, Deferred Deposit Transactions/Loans) and high-interest loans should be used for short-term financial needs only and not as a long-term financial solution. Customers with credit difficulties should seek credit counseling before entering into any loan transaction. See State Center for specific information and requirements.
