If you received a loan from a lender or owed money to a business and someone other than the lender or business is now attempting to collect from you, the collection activity may be subject to the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. If you receive a communication from a party claiming that a debt is owed, you can request a “written validation notice,” which must include the amount of the debt, the name of the creditor you owe, and your rights under the FDCPA. If you have questions regarding federal debt collection laws, you can contact the Federal Trade Commission at 1-877-FTC-HELP or online at www.ftc.gov.

I just received the same calls. They threatened to throw me in jail, etc. I told them I suspected fraud and was going to contact the authorites, the man, who said his name was both David Fisher and Anthony White (with a thick middle eastern accent), became irate and yelled and cursed and gave all kinds of threats. I contacted the FBI, which suggested I submit a report to the internet crime department.
The Washington State Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) has received complaints from Washington consumers of what appear to be loan collection scams. Numerous consumers reported they were contacted by entities claiming to collect debts owed to companies with “Cash Advance” in their names. The collection attempts often involve threats of lawsuits, asset seizure, and arrest. The consumers targeted did not actually owe the debt being collected. At least some of the consumers were targeted after they applied for loans from unlicensed online lenders.
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 bet the person calling has a middle eastern accent. I get these calls from time to time and I just laugh and tell them I know this is a scam and they are not going to get a dime. It really messes up there plans and they hang up on me. So anyone reading this beware if they call you just tell them you know it's a scam and your not giving them a dime they will hang up on you. And another thing a failed ACH can not be bad check and they can do nothing to you for a failed ACH it is not the same as a bad check. Also when they threaten you it is a violation of the FDCPA laws and could sue them but you probably couldn't do that because they don't live in this country. BUT just LAUGH at them and hang up.
Loan renewal policies are largely governed by state regulatory legislation. The loan renewal options will be presented to you by your lender prior to your acceptance of the loan. Please make sure to diligently read the renewal policy presented to you prior to signing the loan documents. Payday loans are intended to be a short term financial instrument. Cash Advance® encourages all consumers to repay the loan on time and in full in order to avoid late payment and/or non-payment fees. If you suspect that you may be unable to pay off a loan, we would recommend that you explore Loan Alternatives before submitting a loan request.
