I have been contacted by phone recording saying I am approved for a loan up to 1500 dollars. First of all I have never heard of this company and I have not given anyone my social security number or personal information so I wanted to check the phone number they called me from and I found this site with all the people that have been scammed. So sorry to hear of your loss. Just remember a legitimate business dealing with money will never randomly approve you for a loan when you have never contacted them.

I am working on my college assignment, when I take a break and check my cell phone. I received not one but three calls from PCS ( a collection agency) and they left one message urging me to contact a Thomas Williams about an overdue payday advance. I returned his call many times to try to explain that I never received a payday advance loan of any sort. He first claimed it was done in May of 2010 and again in August of 2011. He had my social security number, my name and cell number, and my girlfriend's name.
Just received this email and I know it is spam because they did not even put my name in the email and if I would owe them anything for sure they would have put my name in the email and even the amount that I supposedly owe. "As we didn't receive your payment so we are going to file this case against you on Tuesday October 10th, 2017 at your district courthouse. To know the courthouse kindly visit http://www.uscourts.gov/court-locator with your zip code. You will be served with a notice to appear at your district courthouse in next seven business days. You can still avoid this case by making a payment towards your total outstanding or else this case file will be executed as mentioned. Regards Manager, Legal Department, Cash Advance USA."

Same as others. Email sent saying was approved for amount, how many months, and payment. When contacted the person from overseas and very rude. Would not send to an account. Only Western Union and wanted 200.00. When ask only way payments could be made was Western Union. Someone needs to do something with these people... Justin ** is name. Used phone number 850-615-1079. Shows in Panama City, FL. Hope this is useful in stopping these people.

All of a sudden I started getting threatening emails from someone stating that if I do not pay an unverified debt that charges would be filed on my name and social security number. I replied back to the individual who emailed me and a demanded that they no longer contact me and that I was submitting a complaint to the CFPB and my Attorney General. They then replied back to me with the name, partial social security number, mailing address, phone number and amount owed of the person they believed to be me. I then sent the email to my Attorney General with my complaint.


I received an email from someone saying I owe $300 but it has been moved up to $885 and they will be taking me to court and freezing my accounts, garnishing my wages. So I ask them to send the account number and when this was done no response. I have even ask for their phone number. All they keep saying is this is the final notice and how am I willing to settle. OKAY so I can't have your number. First of all why are we WRITING back and forth through emails.
So I received a few text messages from someone by the name of David ** and purchased an 86 dollar iTunes card then gave the card info to Mr. ** and they proceeded to tell me it would cost me 125 dollars for the insurance of my loan amount. Was told upon payment my account would be credited 5400 dollars? I realize I have been scammed and am out almost 90 dollars. I just hope someone else doesn’t fall for this. The number that called me was **.
This place is a scam. Went to go and get a loan and I asked for the supervisor and it was the same guy. Don't ever fall for foreigners at all. What a joke. I am calling the police down in GA and TX and contacting the Attorney General. They tried taking money out of an account that is my mother's and said it was an error but when I confronted them they called me names and I didn't know what was going on. So I closed all the accounts. Joke is on them.
A Lady named Karen Williams will keep e-mailing and e-mailing saying my Husband will be served with papers to go to Court and that his social is on hold.  She saids we got a Payday Loan from:  US Cash Advance with the number:877-817-8791.  Her number which stays busy all the time is:  916-458-5665.  She is from Utica, NY, Yankee LAND.  She has an old address and an old number.  Watch for her.  She is trouble, bug trouble.  Now, I have to get me another Yahoo e-mail address.
I just had a wonderful time jerking these people off. They've been robocalling me a couple of times a day for some weeks, so I finally decided to call back and really piss them off. No legitimate company calls you to offer you a loan - you have to call them and actually apply. Anyway, these jerkoffs kept hanging up on me so I kept calling back - 15 times before they finally blocked my number. I then used another phone to call again and pretend like I really wanted a loan.
In another case, the consumer reported that the caller threatened to seize the consumer’s bank account and serve the consumer with legal papers at his workplace unless he paid the debt. Another consumer reported being threatened with arrest. In one case, a consumer reported the debt collector threatened that he could have an arrest warrant issued if the consumer did not immediately pay him with a credit card. In other cases, consumers report the debt collector demanded payment using a pre-paid card.

I do not owe these people. They go to class reunion.com or life.com, get your information and they act like you have a had a loan. I have not had a loan in 20 years, they can keep it up and I will sue for harassment. I am tired of these people trying to scam me. There is definitely something needs to be done about them. I had one removed from my credit report. They need to quit prying on people. Something needs to be done.


I had received automated calls from this company 3-4 days in a row. I wanted to consolidate my credit cards. I decided to call back but every time I called, I would get a recording that the person I was trying to reach was not able to receive calls and to try later. Right then and there I thought... hmmm, this has got to be a scam. The following week, I received another call, I too, spoke with a woman with a very thick accent not to mention there was so much noise in the background, it was even more harder to hear her. Nevertheless, we began the loan process, until we got to the point she requested my username & password for my checking account. Do I really look like boo boo the clown. What legitimate company will ask for that info. When I asked her why she needed that info, she replied, they need to access the account to make sure it's my account. I told her she is a liar, accessing my account does not prove that it's my account.

It is important to note that payday loan interest rates tend to be higher than interest rates associated with other types of loans. If you fail to repay your loans, you will find yourself quickly amassing additional debt. Because of this, cash advance loans should stand as a last resort for those in debt, rather than a first choice for those with minor financial problems. USACashAdvance.com is a tool for handling emergency expenses and redirecting your financial situation.
I was just contact by "Attorney Damon Marshall" He originally left a voice mail on my cell advising that I have criminal charges that were filed against me and the Police would be arriving to my home within the hour to arrest me. I called him immediately, He advised that I took out a payday loan. I inquired about the amount. He told me that he does not work for the collection agency and he does not know how much. I said well how much does it say I owe. He said after all taxes fees and surcharges i owed $700+ I told him that he had to be kidding. I have NEVER taken out a payday loan before in my life. This man had so much of my information that it was a very scary situation. He told me that he would place me on hold to see if the court would settle. As I am on hold with him I begin to Google the phone number as well as "Cash Advance USA" up pops SCAM... I was reading aloud and I dont think he was on the other line but he heard me and became very defensive. Mr. Marshall called me soooo many derogatory name and I could not believe it. Then he hung up in my face. Everyone please beware that this is a complete scam!!!! 
So I have been constantly getting these silly emails from Cash Advance USA, I have no idea whom they are. Never took out a loan from any of these institutions. But I like messing with them when I do get them. Easiest way to figure out it is a scam, promptly ask them, "How can I send you the money so I can clear my name today?" They will come back with a stupid email saying if you pay '**' amount they will call it paid in full. I then ask them again, "How can I send the money right now to take advantage of this great settlement amount?" Their response would be something like what I received from them again. Stupid scam.
I called my bank and the particular Month he said this transaction took place my account had not even been opened. I have yet to return his call but Iam to give him the information. It just doesnt add up. The scarey thing is he had all my bank account information, IP address, Referances that I have used in the past, Social Security Number. Dont know how but he did.
A cash advance is a small cash loan that can get you by for a few weeks. The terms are straight forward, and we can lend you the money you need in just minutes. It is not complicated…We lend you the money you need and when your next payday check comes, you pay us back. There are those that may think they will not qualify for a payday loan because they do not have a job. This is not always the case. You only need a steady or regular source of income to qualify to apply. Give us a call, stop by either of our Racine USA Payday Loans locations or apply for a loan using our online application. It’s that easy.
We'll also ask for your employment details or the source of any recurring income. Once you complete an application with LendUp for a short-term loan, we provide an answer instantly. We don't rely on a traditional credit check or credit score to make lending decisions, opening the door for individuals who might have struggled with credit in the past. You won't have to fax any documents or wait days for an answer. LendUp's short-term loan options usually offer approved first-time borrowers up to $250; by paying on time and working with LendUp again in the future, you might be able to increase how much you can borrow at a time (availability varies by state).
