Washington State law prohibits threatening or harassing behavior by individuals attempting to collect a debt. The federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act states that debt collectors must send consumers a written notice within five days of the first collection phone call, stating the amount of the debt and what it relates to. Debt collectors cannot state or imply that failure to pay a debt is a crime. They cannot call before 8:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m. They cannot harass or abuse consumers, or contact consumers' places of employment.
One consumer reported receiving an email from a man calling himself William C. Jones, who claimed to work at a Federal Trade Commission office. He allegedly threatened to disclose the debt to the consumer’s employer, garnish wages, and file a lawsuit against the consumer. Another consumer reported receiving a similar e-mail from a person calling himself Neal Johnson. The consumer reported that what appear to be fake U.S. District Court arrest warrants were attached to these e-mails.
When used wisely, the loan will save you from a financial crisis when cash is scarce. Be it paying for utility bills or a sudden car repair, it can save your credit score from getting worse. And if you act responsibly, you’ll save some money by paying on time and taking a loan only when you sincerely need it. If possible, pay the amount as soon as possible and you’ll be a happy intelligent borrower.
I literally just received a call from Cash Advance USA. A man stated that I had taken out a payday advance loan in the amount of $350.00. I informed the man that this must in fact be fraud because I had never taken a payday advance loan from their company. The man the stated that he was going to transfer me to his supervisor who then informed me that charges were about to be pressed against me for fraud. I asked him the specific date the money was supposidly deposited in my account. The only information the man could provide was October 2010. He told me the name of my bank and the last four of both my bank acct number and my ssn. What the man didn't know was that I while he was on the phone giving me his speech I actually went online to my online banking page. I had no deposits ever from their company. I then informerd the man that I had never received such a loan and that he needed to provide me with the number to cash advance usa so that i could call them and fax over a copy of my transactions for the month of October so that they'd see they must have the wrong person. The man then became rude with me and told me that he couldn't give me the number because now I had to deal with him, that law enforcement was going to show up at my from door to arrest me for skipping out of a loan. I told him that there was no need to get rude; that I'm sure plenty of people gets loans they don't pay back but I'm not that person and that all I was attempting to do is get the specifics so that I can get to the bottom of this. He then started getting louder with me and ended the call screaming have fun in jail and hu. I immediately began searching for cash advance usa's actual telephone number when I came across this article. I then knew that omg they were attempting scam me. It's scary because of the little information they do know but it would've been even scarier had I actually believed them. Honestly if anyone actually finds cash advance usa's phone number I would love to call them to give them a piece of my mind. The number they called me from is: 760-383-1867----SCAM ARTISTS
Someone called my job and told them that there was a legal matter that could result in me losing my job. When I called them, I was told that I had an outstanding payday loan of $300 plus 2000 in legal fees. In order to prevent legal action, I would have to get a green dot pre-paid card and fax them an apology letter and promise to pay. I actually got scared and tried to make a payment but got suspicious when they couldnt give me an account number or reference number. When I began to question them, they got very nasty and told me that they would send me a subpena and send it to my job to try to scare me into paying. I was able to make sure that they didnt get any payment. BEWARE OF CASH ADVANCE USA

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.
Our online service is entirely free and works to find potential lenders in our network. Simply fill out our secure online form, then hit the SUBMIT button. If we find a possible lender, you will be presented with the next steps to complete your loan request. If you are presented with a loan offer, you will have the option to review the terms of the loan, which you may approve or decline. We encourage you to always read the terms of your loan thoroughly before accepting them, no matter where you get your loan.
As you can clearly notice, these criteria do not include high credit scores or any requirements for a security deposit, mortgaging your property or car. The reasons for such minimal requirements start with the legislative conditions for fast loans, where you are not required to have any collateral, or meet any other conditions not listed above. Such schemes allow people with limited financial means to obtain loans fast.
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.
Emergencies are inherently unexpected and almost always emotionally and financially jarring. Emergency funds are a key component in the arsenal of a successful saver because they not only mitigate the financial burden of unexpected expenses, they also help reduce the stress which often accompanies them. Unlike the amount you set aside for a specific purchase, an emergency fund is to be used exclusively for events like family crises, medical issues and natural disasters. People with emergency savings avoid crippling debt and are on the road to recovery much more quickly than those who are unprepared.
I have been contacted by all of the same people listed in these reports plus some new names Like James Delano. Some say they are Officers ( Officer Ricky Jones ) some say attorneys. They have threaten to have me and my husband arrested so i contacted my local police department and was told these people were full of pooh. I also have contacted my brother who works with the FOP in the next town and they have had alot of similiar reports. I gave them all the numbers they have called me from and they are working on getting these people. It seems they dont know its illeagal to impersonate an officer...What got me was they always call from different numbers and it has even came up on my phone as 911 Emergency!!! They had all of our information, SS numbers bank accounts numbers address EVERYTHING! We closed our accounts and have reopened new accounts just to be safe and we talked to the bank so that they are aware of the scam and we also told them about this site and the information we found on here. We have NEVER done any kind of pay day advance or loan so we knew we were right but some people are not so lucky and have fallen victim to this. I hope they are caught and go to jail themselves. Very scary that they had all that info about us. Good luck everyone and please dont fall for this scam. When I called them out on it they cursed me up one side and down the other but best believe they got an earfull inreturn...lol and that felt good.
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 was told I was approved for a $6000 loan. I had to go buy $147 in iTunes gift cards. I had to give them the number of the back of the cards. Which they redeemed after I gave the cards. Then they wanted me to send them $387 to finish my part saying that this will prove that I could pay the loan back, this was my verification process. Cash Advance USA, Dallas Texas ripped me off for $150. Something needs to be done to these con artists.
Cash Advance USA in South Carolina / phone **. I applied online (don't know the URL) for a loan... was approved for $5,000... had to give them my online banking info (which I did - I'm an idiot); they made a deposit into my account, which I had to return to them by buying Google Play cards. The bank rejected those deposits, leaving me in the hole. Awful experience.
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.
A woman named Amy ** emailed and sent me a text that I was approved for $4000. Now I didn't need that much, but I called. Amy had a thick accent like from India. After straining to understand her she said it would be $250 per month. Not too bad I told her. But the catch... She wanted me to send them money first then they would deposit my money. What? She called it "insurance". I told her no and not to ever contact me again. Be aware of this company.
