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.

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.

Got a call today, 312-248-2234, and answered to hear that I was preapproved for a thousand dollars loan, and just call them back at same phone number. I called back, they answered Cash Advance. I asked "Do you have a web site?" I like to see how professional or cheesy a site is, as a place to start, in looking at a company. If their site is not professional, then neither are they! I even look for typos. Well, the guy just hung up on me. So I started researching (yes, I can use a grand or two this month), and found all of these reviews.
I had applied for a loan a month or two ago. Past couple days I was geting call after call with no voicemail. I called back today and the "legal office of jay harpor" voicemail came on.

While a cash advance lender may only charge $15 for every $100 you borrow, that’s only for two weeks. If you don’t pay back the loan as well as interest and fees, you roll over the loan and then you’re responsible for paying the interest again. An interest rate of 15 percent for a two-week loan becomes an interest rate of 30 percent when you roll it over for a month. And if you extend the loan for a year and do the math, you end up with an annual percentage rate of almost 400 percent!
I contacted the FBI in my state closest to me and informed them. I also contacted the Federal Trade Commision and filed a report with them. If they keep calling you everyday, then you need to contact these agencies and also another thing I do is since I do not have a home phone anymore, I create a contact call "do not answer" and when I get one of these calls, I add the number to that contact.
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.
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.
