Several consumers also reported receiving phone calls from entities attempting to collect debts owed to Cash Advance, Cash Advance Group, and US Cash Advance. Some of the collection calls came from people who called themselves Brian Wilson, John Murphy, Jim Spencer, and Andrew Martin. Some calls also came from a person claiming to work for Peterson Law Group and Debt Collection USA.
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.
Consumer Notice: A cash loan, also referred to as a payday loan or payday advance, is a small, short-term loan that is intended to cover a borrower’s expenses until the following payday. Payday Advances are intended for short-term financial relief and do not constitute long-term financial solutions. Consumers facing debt and credit difficulties should seek out debt and credit advisory help.
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??!!)
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 have been contacted by all of the same people listed in these reports plus some new names Like James Delano. Some say they are Officers ( Officer Ricky Jones ) some say attorneys. They have threaten to have me and my husband arrested so i contacted my local police department and was told these people were full of pooh. I also have contacted my brother who works with the FOP in the next town and they have had alot of similiar reports. I gave them all the numbers they have called me from and they are working on getting these people. It seems they dont know its illeagal to impersonate an officer...What got me was they always call from different numbers and it has even came up on my phone as 911 Emergency!!! They had all of our information, SS numbers bank accounts numbers address EVERYTHING! We closed our accounts and have reopened new accounts just to be safe and we talked to the bank so that they are aware of the scam and we also told them about this site and the information we found on here. We have NEVER done any kind of pay day advance or loan so we knew we were right but some people are not so lucky and have fallen victim to this. I hope they are caught and go to jail themselves. Very scary that they had all that info about us. Good luck everyone and please dont fall for this scam. When I called them out on it they cursed me up one side and down the other but best believe they got an earfull inreturn...lol and that felt good.
When you receive a raise, it's tempting to spend more money on things and experiences that make you happy. However, the "hedonic treadmill" theory suggests that even though an income boost can make us feel like we've earned an uptick in spending, our newfound windfall will eventually leave us as unsatisfied as we were prior to the raise because our needs don't disappear – they just get grander. Savvy savers know to avoid lifestyle inflation during periods of income growth and invest in themselves instead. This can mean upping retirement contributions or diverting the difference into a savings account, emergency fund or toward some other financial goal.
In another case, the consumer reported that the caller threatened to seize the consumer’s bank account and serve the consumer with legal papers at his workplace unless he paid the debt. Another consumer reported being threatened with arrest. In one case, a consumer reported the debt collector threatened that he could have an arrest warrant issued if the consumer did not immediately pay him with a credit card. In other cases, consumers report the debt collector demanded payment using a pre-paid card.
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.
