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 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!!!!
There are so many misconceptions about payday cash advances. There really is nothing to be afraid of. They are fast, simple, and they get the job done. The most important thing to realize is that you will have to pay back the loan sooner rather than later, and you will have to do it either in a lump sum, or in some cases in just a few installments. This means you must find a way to cover the loan and still cover regular expenses. Their very nature makes them a temporary solution, but a solution when no other may be available none the less. As long as you remember the ABCs of a cash advance, this can be a very power financial tool.
Cash Advance® does not make credit decisions nor does Cash Advance® conduct a credit inquiry on consumers. Some lenders on the Cash Advance® network may conduct a non-traditional credit check in order to determine your eligibility for a loan. Lenders typically do not conduct a credit inquiry with the three major credit bureaus: Transunion, Experian, or Equifax. If you do not repay your loan on time your lender may report this delinquency to one or more credit bureaus, which could have a negative impact on your credit score. We encourage consumers with credit problems to consult a Credit Counseling company.
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.
I received a call today 06/04/2011 from a man with a very strong accent. He said his name was kevin johnson and he left his number 9092337338 on my voicemail saying to have my attorney call and if not that he wishes me luck. So i called back to the number he actually called from 619-320-0434 and got a man named Michael Carter "supposedly"....(both these men had strong accents i don't know any Arabians with English names who have strong a*s accents..just saying) So anyways he went on to say I was being sued for going bad on a loan. I was like "who is this" he said LAW OFFICE of JOHN MORRISON located in San Diego, CA. I asked what loan are u talking about. He then got rude and told me don't cut him off and hung up on me. I called back and asked same questions he then said that the name of the loan company was "GROUP ASSOCIATION OF CASH ADVANCE ONLINE" as soon as he said online i knew he was lying cause i never took out a loan online, i applied but never went through with it. He said the amount was for $200.00. I told him i never took out a loan online and he said i was lying how would he have my ssn and bank info that i was being charged with 3 things. Defaulting on the loan, Bounced Check, & fraud. I started probing him for more questions saying who are u, let me speak to your manager whats ur corp. address ect. He said there is no manager available and then hung up on me. I called back multiple times and this business phone suddenly became a cell phone that there able to turn off cause my calls were being routed to voice mail. They eventually answered and he started saying things like "im going to fk ur mom, can i fk you? where do u live?" I told him what kind of law office is this that u can disrespect people like that?....I recorded the conversation and saved the voice mail that they left me. When I call back they answer saying "suck my dk" and other rude things so im sure its a fraud. But One of the guys "Kevin Johnson" who also hung up on me and said rude things sometimes acts like he never talked to me before and says "I'll call you back with more info." and never calls but i spoke to both numbers with two diffrent people who both yelled ob-sanities so be aware it is a fraud.
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.

But just being on the safe side I did all my research to indeed prove I had never made this transaction, by getting my bank statements to have so that if for whatever reason Iam takin to court I have proof that there was never any deposit of this $300.00. No need to panick on my end other than the fact that some stranger has alot of my personal information. So now Iam going to take all the correct steps into protecting this and letting the proper people know whats happened.
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.
Very grateful that I found this website. I just received a call like the majority of the ones I see you all mentioned. I have actually taken out pay day loans and presently have some out right now, but I pay them all back on time. This was the first time I ever received a call of this nature, but I guess when you endlessly put your info out here the scammers will get it because a lot of them are FAKE lenders and are just pretending to be that in an effort to get your info and later scam you. At any rate....

Many experts suggest that you contribute 10 percent to 15 percent of your income to a retirement plan. While that's not always realistic, successful savers know to contribute at least what their company will match. If your employer offers to match 3 percent of your income toward retirement savings, you should match that or risk leaving money on the table. Additionally, because contributions to your 401(k) are tax-free, contributing will reduce your overall taxable income. If your employer does not offer a retirement benefit or you're self-employed, consider a traditional IRA or Roth IRA. Research these options and chat with a financial planner about the best plan for you, your budget and your business.
In summary, taking a cash advance on your credit card means taking on a very expensive short-term loan. This is almost never a good idea, so consider all other options before using a cash advance. It’s also important to take the fact that you’re thinking about using a cash advance as a sign that your finances need some fine-tuning. You don’t want to end up in this situation again!

A Lady named Karen, from Utica, NY, in the North, said we owed a PAYDAY Loan Co. and we don't and haven't for a long, long time. Watch out for her. She has all kind of threats. Call US Cash Advance-916-458-5665 and they will tell you, you don't owe them a dime and they have been dealing with scammers for over a year. Buy a whistle if they have your number, which they don't. We had it changed. Don't let her and anyone else from these d**n places scare you.
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.
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 **.

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.
