I had the same thing happen to me today. The man continued to call me 7 times after i told him i would contact the police for harassment. They then attacked my boyfriend when he answered the phone. These people have been calling over and over all day long almost every other day. Sometimes will even leave a message. He then tried to get me to give out my social security number when i told him that if he could prove i took out the loan he should have my social and then he kept trying to get me to fall for it. I know for a fact that i do not and never have had a loan with this company. Do not fall for anything they say its all lies and they just want your money!!! Someone needs to stop this!
People who set goals for a purchase – whether it's a car, television or family vacation – are more apt to reduce unnecessary spending in pursuit of that goal. While other consumers use credit cards to purchase items they can't afford, effective savers rarely spend money they don't have. The next time you decide to invest in a big purchase, review your budget to see where you can make cuts to allocate more funds toward that goal. You can also boost your income to reach your savings goals quicker by taking on side jobs, such as freelance writing, dog walking or another gig that takes advantage of your marketable skills.
I just got an email claiming that I had to get in touch with this company because of a $300 cash advance, and now owe $885.59. They claim to be taking legal action. I never heard of them and I have no idea who these people are. There is also no phone number on the email. I'm positive this is a scam and I think they are probably another out of the country scamming outfit.
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.
If you manage to pay your loans in a timely manner, your credit score may benefit from your efforts. With a positive credit score, you may discover that interest rates on items such as mortgages and car loans decrease. However, failing to pay your lenders may rob you of credibility and inflict long-lasting damage on your credit score. Again, only take out loans that you know you will be capable of paying off in the near future.
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.
USA CASH ADVANCE SCAM: Foreign accented man called to confirm a loan but needed me to obtain a new government law requiring a verification voucher! When I had money and was at CVS, 11/7, Walmart or other locations.....I was to call him and then he would tell me the person to whom I would make the voucher out to for a total of 260 dollars (down from 400). The loan would then be deposited into my account as soon as the voucher business was done. He informed that I had to process the voucher verification within the next 10 minutes and then my funds would then be in my account in 15 minutes (in thousands by the way). The voucher was to prove I could make monthly payments...REALLY? The amount of the loan was ridiculous- "too good to be true" type. So I said I could not do anything until tomorrow. Again he emphasized calling once I was in the store and would give me no information except that his name was James. (BTW: a young man answered the phone, James was giving the 888 number to another in the background and then took the phone to speak with me??!!)
I received an email to call for a personal loan from Cash Advance USA. I was approved for $2000. They wanted my passwords and account numbers. They were going to deposit money in my account and wanted me to send it back to verify my account then they would deposit the $2000. If I would have done that I would have been out $200. They tried to scam me.
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.
I am trying to find out if this is connected to firstname.lastname@example.org --- Jack Smith in Chicago -- they say they have all my info and can send 5k in 45 mins if I give a state to state transfer of 75 -- this is the first text: "Hi, Congratulation This is to inform you that your application for online loan has been fully approved by our company and there is no any upfront charges to get this loan amount. So if you are still looking for a loan so call us back on our number which is 773-796-9005. Thank you." ---- is this the same guy?

A cash advance loan works just like a payday loan. (Not surprising, since they’re the exact same thing.) To get one, you go to a payday lender and write a check. You date it for your next payday and make it out for the amount of the loan plus interest and fees. The lender will then give you cash or transfer money to your bank account. It’s yours to spend, but remember that check you wrote? As soon as your next payday arrives, the lender will cash it and the amount will be withdrawn from your bank account.
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.”
USACashAdvance.com is not a lender and does not provide short-term loans but refers consumers to lenders who may provide such loans. For this reason, we are unable to supply you with an exact APR (Annual Percentage Rate) that you will be charged if you are approved for a loan. APRs vary according to the information supplied by you in your loan request and your lender. You will be given the APR, loan fees, and other terms by your lender when you are redirected to your loan agreement in the loan request process. The APR on a cash loan can range from 200% to 2,290% depending on how the APR is calculated (nominal vs. effective), the duration of the loan, loan fees incurred, late payment fees, non-payment fees, loan renewal actions, and other factors. Keep in mind that the APR range is not your finance charge and your finance charge will be disclosed later on, if applicable.
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
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.
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.

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 recieved a phone call at work TODAY 12/16/2009 from a Mr Jones. He started the conversation by saying I was being takin to court from Cash Advance USA for getting a $300.00 loan initially and when they tried to debt my account for re-payment they had 6 returned Checks and stated I was being prosecuted for writing bad checks and basically stealing this money. He told me I had a right to an attorney and if it went to court Id pay over 8,000 in fines and fees. He then told me the client is willing to resolve this outside of court but first I had to send an apology letter to them stating that I indeed did owe this and Iam sorry for not re-paying this when I agreed and I that I give them permisson to debt my account for $1045.37. I then told him before I say anything further I was going to check my bank account for this transaction because If I owe it Ill pay it but Im 100% sure this transaction never took place. He then told me I had 30 minutes to return a call to him.

Residents of the State of Washington are informed that Washington State law provides in RCW 31.45.105(1)(d) and (3) that a “small loan” (sometimes referred to as a “payday loan”) made by an unlicensed entity to a person physically located in Washington State is uncollectible and unenforceable in Washington State. A “small loan” is defined in RCW 31.45.073 and is a loan that does not exceed $700. Collection activities involving loans of $700 or less are subject to RCW 31.45.082, which limits the time, place, and manner in which a payday loan may be collected. Payday lenders must also provide borrowers with an installment plan if the borrower is not able to pay the small loan back when it is due.
