Contact information:
Advance Cash USA
United States
Phone: 347-901-4184
I began receiving these same phone calls yesterday. They called me several times at work and on my cell phone. The persons name on my report is David Jones. They did send me a fax last night telling me how much I supposedly borrowed from Advance Cash USA. I admit I have taken a payday loan out, but never from this company. They called me as an "unknown caller", but told me to call them back at 347-901-4184. The guy on the phone said he worked for David Jones as his legal assistant. He did have a strong Indian accent and I was tempted to tell him to put someone on the phone that I could understand. He threatened me that they would send someone to my work or my home. When I asked why I haven't heard about this from the company before today, he got really upset with me. He told me the people I was dealing with were scammers and started laughing. He told me this other company did not exist in the U.S. I'm just trying to figure out what I should do.

I experienced the same ordeal. I asked for to speak with someone who may be a manager or supervisor to expedite the circumstances. He become hesitant and asked why and I informed him I intended to contact a lawyeer because I suspected fraud and he to me do not worry about make this payment and proceeded to hang up in my face. This company is a scam that use different area codes to call you from.

Same story here...but I have Magic Jack with a stateside number and live in China. To me it plain at first...here is the funny...I receive one messg for David--then 2 min later one with my first name...curious what list did they buy? Since I was in the states for 2 months end of last year. Educate yourselves...the laws are pretty strict in most states...record the conversation or at least tell them you are...they will hang up...Just say "by law I have to inform you I am recoeding this conversation...now what is it you want?" Good Luck all...

I recieved an almost identical phone call at both my work and on my cell phone. When they reached me at work, I took a number and called them back from my cell phone. When I called back and asked what company they were calling on behalf of, I could not get a straight answer. They even named references that were on my account and when I said that I didn't know those people, I was told that it was not important and that the information could have gotten mixed up. I refused to make a payment today, and asked them to email me the information. The guy, who I had a lot of trouble understanding, kept saying that I needed to make a payment by the end of the month. I read over the information that does not look professional at all and the number on the email does not even have the same area code as the one they called me from. I have emailed them back saying that I am not going to send the information they required until I have done further research on their company.

I started receiving calls from ACS and they said they were calling to collect money from a pay day loan company. If I hung up they would call back. The man I worked with name is MAC DAWSON ph 347-875-3080. He would call from unknown numbers .He stated I borrowed $ 300.00. He would take a settlement of $ 400.00. He said I could pay the loan off with installments but the payoff would be $1285.00, each payment in the amount of $ 321.25. On April 29 MACK DAWSON began calling again at 9:00 in the morning. The office staff was aware of this person and would not put the calls thru. When he realized that he was not going to get to me he would hang up and call right back. He (MACK DAWSON) began swearing at the office staff and when one of his calls went to my controller he yelled and screamed at her. This last call has my put my job in jeopardy. I called MACK DAWSON. He said unless I returned the signed agreement within 10 minutes with my card information he would call every 20 times.

I also received an email from these people. Since I've also been receiving calls - from them and every other scammer -I knew right away it was a scam. I wrote back to them and told them - "F you. I know this is a scam. I am reporting you to the appropriate authorities. Again, F you. The email will probably be returned as undeliverable but it felt good telling them. I cannot tolerate these people. They think everyone is stupid!!!

I've received three different emails from these people all with different reference #'s and different phone #'s and for three different amounts, $895.45, $897.33 & $986.26. Of course, if I choose not to pay they will sue me in court and it will end up costing me thousands of dollars. They aren't calling me because I've moved and changed my number, which is unlisted, but I am sure it is just a matter of time, before they get it. But I am not going to let them bully me into paying anything. I am on social security disability & have a minor child at home, so they can threaten all they want, I will report them and get an attorney.

Thank you for all your feedback. I too have gotten this email. I had went and got the moneypak but something was bothering, so I googled and found this. I had agreed to pay them on Feb 10th but got another email like they never spoke with me. Then they sent another email with the wrong date. Then another email with the wrong amount. I guess they will have to sue me. I can't afford to send money to a scam personally.

Just received the same e-mail and have contacted the BBB. Next step is the local District Attorney. My wife is retired law enforcement and is she ever hot! Interesting how on these e-mails there is no identifying of the person it is being sent to...no full name, no name of a specific court house. If these people are calling from another country they probably can't be touched by our justice system so they will continue sending these until they send it to some elderly person with a heart condition who then reads this and panics and dies from a heart attack. Then maybe someone in law enforcement will finally take notice and put a stop to this.

Yet another Indian scam job. No one is going to sue you without sending registered letters regarding their jntent to do so, or even a process server to make sure you know what is happening, to you first. A legitimate attorney is not going to send one threatening letter written in really bad English and have these goofball Indians calling people everyday. So amateur and obviously fake... I cannot believe people have fallen prey to this and sent them money. If you have taken out a loan, you know it... Loan companies are fairly strictly regulated, although they are allowed to charge outrageous interest. They don't suddenly call you and threaten you with a police visit or a lawsuit in 48 hours. Think, people, and ignore these idiots.

I just received the exact email as listed above. I had already been receiving threatening calls to my work place. I filed a report with The Federal Trade Commission regarding the phone calls. The would repeatedly call my work even after being told not to. I checked their phone number on the internet and found numerous complaints about them doing the same thing to others. I did call their phone number's but could never find out what company they were with. I did tell them "if" they had valid papers for a lawsuit against me, then to file it, if not, leave me alone. They have not filed anything, I have not received anything in the mail advising me of an intended lawsuit. This must be some kind of scam for my money, which I don't have much of, and they will not get one red dime out of me. Thanks all for your input regarding this situation.

I started getting e mails just this week. I have taken out payday loans so i got a little worried that I overlooked something when i was going through some tough financial issues last year. I was about ready to work out a payment but it just didn't seem right. I questioned them on why i was just hearing about it over a year later and I asked them to send me copies of the documents. They said they couldn't send me the documentation and I would see them in court. After a couple more e mails of me asking for some proof they said either pay or stop bothering them. Me bothering them? seriously? I am so glad i looked into this further. Thank you to everyone for reporting your experiences.
