Tennessee: The State of Tennessee requires a minimum principal reduction. In order to comply with the minimum state-required principal reduction, Speedy Cash requires that minimum payments include a principal reduction of 2% or $2.50 for Customers who get paid bi-weekly/twice-a-month, or 4% or $5 for Customers who get paid monthly, whichever is greater.
While a cash advance lender may only charge $15 for every $100 you borrow, that’s only for two weeks. If you don’t pay back the loan as well as interest and fees, you roll over the loan and then you’re responsible for paying the interest again. An interest rate of 15 percent for a two-week loan becomes an interest rate of 30 percent when you roll it over for a month. And if you extend the loan for a year and do the math, you end up with an annual percentage rate of almost 400 percent!
I was offer a loan in a text message and since my credit is bad. I call the number, I notice the heavy accent. But I continue talking. They knew so much about me (phone number, social security, bank routing and checking account). I continue talking. I wanted $2000 he said "No you can have $9000." I decline but he said my funds would be deposited a few hours later after they confirm my account. I immediately took the money out of my account. He calls me 1 hour later and demands my online banking user name!!! I told him I don't have one. So he demands my bank card number!!! I said "No way I would not give you that ever." So I wanted to see how far he would go and he say: "How can you be so stupid not to agree with us so you can get $5000 in your account?" So after that I say "Forget it" and I hanged up.
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.

Washington State law prohibits threatening or harassing behavior by individuals attempting to collect a debt. The federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act states that debt collectors must send consumers a written notice within five days of the first collection phone call, stating the amount of the debt and what it relates to. Debt collectors cannot state or imply that failure to pay a debt is a crime. They cannot call before 8:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m. They cannot harass or abuse consumers, or contact consumers' places of employment.

I recieved a phone call at work TODAY 12/16/2009 from a Mr Jones. He started the conversation by saying I was being takin to court from Cash Advance USA for getting a $300.00 loan initially and when they tried to debt my account for re-payment they had 6 returned Checks and stated I was being prosecuted for writing bad checks and basically stealing this money. He told me I had a right to an attorney and if it went to court Id pay over 8,000 in fines and fees.  He then told me the client is willing to resolve this outside of court but first I had to send an apology letter to them stating that I indeed did owe this and Iam sorry for not re-paying this when I agreed and I that I give them permisson to debt my account for $1045.37. I then told him before I say anything further I was going to check my bank account for this transaction because If I owe it Ill pay it but Im 100% sure this transaction never took place. He then told me I had 30 minutes to return a call to him.
Although the amount of money will vary depending on several factors, most people will qualify to borrow up to $500 with a two weeks term. Before taking a cash advance loan, we encourage you to assess your financial situation to make sure it is necessary and that you’ll be comfortable to pay back. We are here to help and wouldn’t want anyone trapped in debt.
Once you determine that cash advances are allowed, you’ll need to request one. Some companies have a formal process in place, while others may allow you to speak privately with your supervisor. Experts suggest that employees approach this conversation tactfully. Time it so you don’t ask when things are hectic at work and prepare a good argument for why you need the advance and why it’s urgent.6

Very grateful that I found this website. I just received a call like the majority of the ones I see you all mentioned. I have actually taken out pay day loans and presently have some out right now, but I pay them all back on time. This was the first time I ever received a call of this nature, but I guess when  you endlessly put your info out here the scammers will get it because a lot of them are FAKE lenders and are just pretending to be that in an effort to get your info and later scam you. At any rate....
