It has become clear from numerous reports of this scam, that the scammers have come into posession of a large amount of personal information, including names, addresses, phone numbers, references, bank acct. numbers and social security numbers. Most of those reporting the scam indicate that at some time in the past, they filled out an online loan application. My guess is that these scammers have obtained (most likely illegally) a large database of this personal info.
I received an email from a lawyer with email **. I was told that I owed Cash Advance USA $1200 and many attempts have been made to contact me. I was threatened with wage garnishment, a warrant, and closing my accounts if I did not pay the $1200 today. I contacted the debt settlement and was told they were a collection agency and just doing their job. This was definitely a scam. I never heard of Cash Advance USA and never borrowed any money from them.

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.
Another consumer reported that an individual claiming to be Morris Anderson, representing Anderson Loan Assistance, contacted the consumer attempting to collect a debt allegedly owed to Cash Advance USA. The individual contacted the consumer through email and phone calls, and allegedly threatened legal action for a loan the consumer states was not received. The consumer reported being provided with an alleged account number and payoff amount.
I have had many tribal loans from many different tribal lenders. Many of them are little more than professional loan sharks. Spotloan gives you a clear payment schedule with a clear payoff date upfront. They don't want you to wallow in a permanent mire of never-ending interest. They want to help you with a short-term solution, not a long-term trap. Absolutely one of the BEST lenders I have ever worked with, including mainstream lenders! Highly recommended!
DFI has received a complaint against Cash Advance USA. It appears that this entity is operating an advance fee scam. Cash Advance USA is not licensed with the Department. The Department cautions consumers not to provide any personal or financial information to unlicensed businesses as such entities may be conducting a scam or otherwise violating Washington State law. Often times, an unlicensed business will require that the consumer pay a fee in advance of receiving a loan but will not provide the loan after receiving the consumer’s funds.
It is important to note that payday loan interest rates tend to be higher than interest rates associated with other types of loans. If you fail to repay your loans, you will find yourself quickly amassing additional debt. Because of this, cash advance loans should stand as a last resort for those in debt, rather than a first choice for those with minor financial problems. USACashAdvance.com is a tool for handling emergency expenses and redirecting your financial situation.

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.
