The APR on a short-term loan can vary greatly depending on how the APR is calculated (nominal vs. effective), the duration of the loan, loan fees incurred, late payment fees, non-payment fees, loan renewal actions, and other factors. Keep in mind that the APR range is not your finance charge and your finance charge will be disclosed later on, if applicable. See a See a Representative Example

Credit card cash advances can come in handy when there’s a necessary expense that you can’t charge to your card (like rent) and you don’t have the funds to cover it otherwise. But the problem with credit card cash advances is that they have fees and interest rates that are generally much higher than if you just used your credit card to make a purchase. Also, you can only borrow as much as your cash advance limit allows, and if you already have a balance on your credit card, that amount may be reduced.
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.
They contacted me today. Said his name was Michael Ray @ 717-612+4596(which is not a working #) the number they called from 717-724-0000 has been disconnected. He stated I was being sued for no payment on the loan that was deposited in my acct in Sept for $400. While on the phone I got online to check my acct. no funds ever. I had checked into some, but never followed thru. When I told him that he said in his accent that he would have to call me back. I said I would stay on the line. He said he was going to lunch and that he would call me later. I then said I wanted to speak to his manager. He stated he did not have one, I said so you answer to know one?? he got rude and said he would call me back. I asked for the phone number and proof in writing for this supposed loan. He said since it was done online, it was not needed. I then asked for Cash Advances phone # he said I would have to go on their website and get it.

I received an email to call for a personal loan from Cash Advance USA. I was approved for $2000. They wanted my passwords and account numbers. They were going to deposit money in my account and wanted me to send it back to verify my account then they would deposit the $2000. If I would have done that I would have been out $200. They tried to scam me.
