Consumers should never make payments over the phone or via email to a third party debt collector that refuses to provide a written validation notice. Even if the party seems to have some of your personal or financial information, you should not make payments or provide bank account or credit card information without receiving a written validation notice. If the scammers already have your bank account information, social security number, or other nonpublic information, you may be a victim of identity theft. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has information for victims of identity theft available online at www.ftc.gov.
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.
Of course, cash advance lenders have no problem with this. They’re usually more than willing to let you roll over a cash advance loan because that’s how they make their money—the more you roll it over, the more you pay in interest. And the alternative isn’t any better: If you stop making payments altogether and default, the lender can pursue legal action against you and potentially garnish your wages.4
If these a*s holes can't get you at home or on your cell phone, they will continue calling you at work. They will be from India, Nigeria, etc., using AMERICAN names and we all know they don't have American names. Part of the time, there is that accent, you will NEVER be able to understand. We have NEVER had a LOAN with this place and have even called them, they did research and told us NO, but it just seem to stop these scammers. Just tell your job if they call your job that you no longer work there. NEVER talk to this trash, ok?

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.
I have been contacted by phone recording saying I am approved for a loan up to 1500 dollars. First of all I have never heard of this company and I have not given anyone my social security number or personal information so I wanted to check the phone number they called me from and I found this site with all the people that have been scammed. So sorry to hear of your loss. Just remember a legitimate business dealing with money will never randomly approve you for a loan when you have never contacted them.
People who set goals for a purchase – whether it's a car, television or family vacation – are more apt to reduce unnecessary spending in pursuit of that goal. While other consumers use credit cards to purchase items they can't afford, effective savers rarely spend money they don't have. The next time you decide to invest in a big purchase, review your budget to see where you can make cuts to allocate more funds toward that goal. You can also boost your income to reach your savings goals quicker by taking on side jobs, such as freelance writing, dog walking or another gig that takes advantage of your marketable skills.
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.
A Lady named Karen Williams will keep e-mailing and e-mailing saying my Husband will be served with papers to go to Court and that his social is on hold. She saids we got a Payday Loan from: US Cash Advance with the number:877-817-8791. Her number which stays busy all the time is: 916-458-5665. She is from Utica, NY, Yankee LAND. She has an old address and an old number. Watch for her. She is trouble, bug trouble. Now, I have to get me another Yahoo e-mail address.
For most people, a cash advance (also known as a payday advance) is something associated with a credit card or other line of credit. Many credit card companies make it easy for customers to receive cash advances nearby by using their credit card at a local ATM. The problem with such tactics is that the costs of the advance can add up quickly and you might not even realize what all those costs are. You'll likely pay an ATM fee charged by the bank that runs the machine, and you might also pay a fee to the credit card company for taking the advance, along with finance charges and interest if you don't pay the money back before your next billing cycle. Some credit card companies charge interest on cash advances that is higher than the interest charged on regular balances, which can make for surprising increases in your total balance.
