The Washington State Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) warns consumers to verify that any lender with which they consider doing business holds a Washington State license for providing consumer loan services. Consumers are urged to verify licensing status prior to giving the lender nonpublic personal information, such as social security number and checking account access.
Many people have trouble paying back their cash advance loans, and rollover is common. In fact, 80 percent of cash advances are rolled over or followed by another loan within 14 days of the first.3 And far too often it doesn’t end there. The loan becomes due and borrowers still can’t pay back the lump sum they owe, so what do they do? They roll it over once more and the cycle starts again.

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 **.
When you receive a raise, it's tempting to spend more money on things and experiences that make you happy. However, the "hedonic treadmill" theory suggests that even though an income boost can make us feel like we've earned an uptick in spending, our newfound windfall will eventually leave us as unsatisfied as we were prior to the raise because our needs don't disappear – they just get grander. Savvy savers know to avoid lifestyle inflation during periods of income growth and invest in themselves instead. This can mean upping retirement contributions or diverting the difference into a savings account, emergency fund or toward some other financial goal.
If these a*s holes can't get you at home or on your cell phone, they will continue calling you at work. They will be from India, Nigeria, etc., using AMERICAN names and we all know they don't have American names. Part of the time, there is that accent, you will NEVER be able to understand. We have NEVER had a LOAN with this place and have even called them, they did research and told us NO, but it just seem to stop these scammers. Just tell your job if they call your job that you no longer work there. NEVER talk to this trash, ok?
I was desperate money. I had applied for a short term loan. They called and asked me what I wanted. I said 2000.00 and they said they would give me 10000.00 something. I was like ok. I went to my bank and there was no deposit from anyone except for my wife's check. They emailed me saying that they're going to make it so I can't get a job. My account will be frozen etc. I contacted the FBI and sent them the email I received from them. So if they are reading this and I hope they are but the FBI is coming. Run and hide.
Someone just called me and stated that this business had a lawsuit against me for check fraud and that I owed them money and I was going to be arrested. He stated that I was going to be arrested. I asked him because he was foreign speaking what the name of the company called again and he said cash advance usa. He had all my infomation..number, ssn#, bank #, address etc..i decided to look the company up and this is what I found . He also told me that they would contact my job and let them know about the lawsuit. What do I do? Im absolutely terrified.
Today I had the same thing happen to me. I got a message that I need to call this number and it was very time sensitive. I call the number and the first thing the guy says in an arabic accent "Is do you have an attorney?' My response is for what. He tells me I will be arrested tomorrow at work because I have an arrest warrant for not paying back 4 payday loans. I live in Texas and he said I will be taken to California to be sued. He then tells me if I can send $1978.26 in a hour that it will be settled out of court and all charges will be dropped. He then wanted me to stay on the phone with him and go buy prepaid VISA cards to make the payment, no other means of payment was acceptable. I convinced him that I need to get off the phone and go to the store because I was on a land line. I checked all the phone numbers provided by this person and all come back no name attached to the number. At this point I realize this is a scam. I don't call him back so he calls my work and starts yelling at me for not calling him back. I told him is get a hold of my attorney, he says "Your a bloody beggar how can you afford to pay for an attorney and not the fees." My buddy who was listening to this call then asks how he had an American name but had such a strong arabic accent. That was the end of that call he immediately hung up. I am still receiving calls from numbers I don't but won't answer them.
