Contact information:
US Cash Advance
United States
I received a call from 888-296-4293, or at least that is what I was told was the return call #. I hit *69 and was given the message the call could not be traced. I was told I was speaking with Nathan Davis and the call was regarding a legal matter. I told this "Nathan" that I was not able to receive personal phone calls at work...he then stated it was not personal. I asked for a number where I could call them back at and was given the above referenced 888#. I told this "Nathan" that I would have to call back but I wanted to know what it was in reference to. He said he would transfer me to his office because he was not able to give me any information. So he transferred me which seemed like he handed the phone off to someone else who was named Rachel Williams. "Rachel" told me that the call was in regards to a payday loan I had not paid from US Cash Advantage that was taken out in July 2008. I have no idea if I took this loan out or not so I asked for her to email or fax me some information. SHe said they already had and the only way I could obtain any documents was for them to send to my attorney and asked for my attorney's name. I told her I did not have one and I would check in to this matter. I have received calls like this before supposedly from other payday loan companies and been threatened many times. If I owe $ I will pay it but this harassment has to stop! The people I spoke with have an middle-eastern accent/dialect and would not provide me with enough information to check the validity of this. Based on past experience - I plan on disregarding this call UNLESS they can provide information in writing that I can verify from my end. It is ridiculous that people can harass hard working persons with scams like this.

I just got a phone call today at work, I was being reported to the BCI deparment, something about bad consumer, and that I owed anywhere up to 1500.00 he did not know the amount but that it was US Cash Advance. I asked him when this was taken out and he could not tell me the original loan amount nor date. He had my place of employment, my address, my social, drivers license number and my banking account. I had used payday loans in the past, huge mistake, but have paid them all in full. This person told me I was going to jail today and I had one hour to contact them back with my attorney information or make payment today. That they would send an officer to my place of employment and haul me off to jail and I would lose my job. Very thick Indian accent. I believe name was Brad Nelson that was given and a phone number of 877-413-2476. Thanks to this website I found trying to research this company, I will be reporting to the FTC and also FBI..

Save your time. Don't bother. They are in India, really do you think FBI is gonna go burst their a$$ and read them their Miranda rights?

Until you make them realize you are onto them they will call you again, and again... I think some scammy Indian dude/dudette who somehow knows the Americans' Psyche, got this scam started and he uses the same coverup as the scammy collection agents use. Same MO, i.e. to get you so emotionally uncomfortable that you will make an emotional decision to pay them off in order to avoid the sheriff/cops locking you up, to avoid losing a job, etc.

Anyway there's no Indian with a "Very thick Indian accent" called Brad Nelson in this world. That's an Anglo/American name, not Asian. Hellooo people! There are no debtor jails in USA anymore, what is this 1839 or 2012? If you have ever taken out a payday loan and you are reading this expect a call sometime. They are phishing for whoever will do their doggie trick - roll over - and pay up or more aptly, be scammed.

These people have no mercy on Americans who are hurting in these present times. They unleash on innocent people who could be struggling and don't know their rights any better. So I have no return mercy for them either. When they call again be ready with a loud sports air horn and blast their their ear into deafness. If they are foolish enough to call again blast the other ear. What are they gonna do tell their Indian police peeps to come arrest you? Sure they will. Don't wast your time reasoning with them. They don't care. They care if you will get scared and fall for their trick. Gloves are off scammers!

Hey Loretta read my post above yours. These are scammers from India. It's the latest scummy craze. They are phishing for easy victims. Just scream back at them and call them scummers. If you have a loud sports air horn then blast them. They get the message you are not a push over and won't get anything from you.

I have received the same call from this company and I was told that the middle eastern sounding man that he was in the legal department for US Cash Advance, USA Cash Advance and United Credit saying that I had loans with these companies. I told the man that I've never had loans with these companies and that I would be contacting the companies myself in reference to the so-called loans that I had supposedly received. When he heard me say that, he quickly hung up the phone. This person knew my name, social, date of birth and even my job along with my phone number. I haven't gotten any more calls from this company but it's from the same number that everyone else has been receiving calls from.

If you have ever applied for a payday loan that's how they have your details. They are in India and there's nothing "legal department" about them nor their scam. So they are open game. Have fun with them.They will call back. Be ready with a loud sports air horn and blow it on the phone. They get the message you ain't an ez mark. They move on, unfortunately in search of the next victim.

I received my first email from a person calling herself Jane Austin, January 8th - in the body of the email there was my exact social security number, home address, they had my banking information but not accounts. I responded to the email, asking that if I owe money, what is the payday organization I borrowed the money from the $amount and when. The next missive did not answer any of my questions. I have since received a total of 7 emails. All detailing that if I don't wire the money via western union or netspend, I will be subject additional court proceedings. I have decided to ignore these emails, but I keep a separate folder as a point of reference, I will search US Cash Advance, to forward these emails to them, maybe they will have more luck in getting this Jane Austin off my back.

Jane Austin is in India. It's a scam. And if it mentions western union it is definitely a scam. They might call with spoofed numbers. Don't fall for it, just scream at them or blast the phone with a loud sports air horn.

I have been receiving these same calls. I got really suspicious when they said I got a payday loan last month but couldn't provide a date. Then a few months ago they told me I had got a loan a different month and different amount. These people need to stop. They told me the payday loan was from US Cash Advance. I don't know these people I don't owe these people .They have my social security number, my old bank info, and my old address. When I traced the call back, it came when a cellphone. Please don't give these people any money or your information . I learned after that first call that these scammers would say anything to get you to give them money. Ask them the date the debt accured they can't tell you, ask them you so called account number they can't give you. I two wish these people will get arrested and get the max jail time from trying to ruin hard working people's lives.

They can't do anything. They are in India. Don't waste your time asking them to verify cr@p. Just laugh at them, they usually get you know what they are up to and go away. Or blast the phone with a loud sports air horn.

This morning at 6 a.m. we recieved a call and my husband answered the phone and they asked for me. I currently am pretty much bedridden due to a blood clot in my right leg from my knee to my ankle. He informed them that it was 6 in the morning and to call later. I recieved a phone call around 7:30 from a Richard and was informed that there was a lawsuit against me and I needed to call Dexter Cruz at 916-304-4784 regarding this. I called the number and Dexter informed me that I was being sued by Cash Advanced USA for fraud and that they were going to have the cops come and arrest me and sue me for over $3000 if I did not go to the nearest CVS or Wallgreens and call him from there today with the $496.00 that I owed and he would give me further directions from there. I informed him I have never heard of Cash Advanced USA and would not take a loan and not pay it back. He was very rude and demanding threatening to have me arrested. I asked him why I have not recieved any legal paperwork and he told me that they had sent me numerous emails and I did not respond. I was almost in tears about this and told him I would call him back and he gave me another number 714-947-3208 to call him back. I researched my email and there was nothing from Cash Advanced USA, called my bank and nothing from them either. Then I went to the website for Cash Advance USA and which I didn't recognize and looked through it and found on their website-CashAdvanceUsa.net Does NOT make ANY calls to customers.If you get a call from any representative “directly” from us - it’s a scam!If you are asked to pay before you get any money – it’s a scam! If it’s a call from a “collection” for us – It’s a scam! CashAdvanceUsa.net provide lenders services for you to talk to and to choose your loan that is right for you, Do not be fooled by scammer’s and big words. So I called Dexter back and told him all of this and he still threatened me and then hung up. I am upset at the fact that he even knew my personal information. I am not sure what to do?

You don't have to do anything. Was this person speaking with a heavy accent? These are the latest scammers - they have taken space where the Nigerians occupied. They call from India with spoofed numbers that make it look like they are calling from here. They are phishing for ez pushovers who will get scared and western union cash to them. If you ever applied for a payday loan that's how they got your info. But there's nothing they can do with it.

My treatment is simple if you want to stop this guys - blast a loud sports air horn in to the phone.

If you want to have fun just call them every hour and scream scammer on the phone or just tie their lines and waste their time.

I received a call from1-877-423-1163 this week and 1-423-216-4958 last week. with the same scam mentioned by all these other posts. This time his name was Donald, it was a different name last week. Calling from the "collections investigations bureau" which doesn't exist. I could tell he was full of shit, so now I call him back about every 20 to 30 minutes just to talk about whatever. These guys are dumb. So please feel free to call the above phone numbers as often as you can.

I also received calls like this today. They had names like Barry Barrington and Hattie McNeal. I told them that I didn't receive any funding that they referring to and didn't understand what they were talking about. They continued to say that if I didn't resolve this I would have to go to a courthouse and resolve. They would come and arrest me. When my husband let them know that he was a US servicemen (which he is) they got very angry and started yelling at him and he told him that he was going to get his lawyer to contact them. They hung up on him. They called back shortly after that and I let them know that I already contacted my police station and have read all these complaints on them and know they are frauds.

I have just received a threatening call from Raymond Scott telling me I owe a payday loan to US Cash Advance. He didn't say how much I am supposed to owe them, but he is sending the police to arrest me after my case is tried at 3 pm today. I don't owe them and never have. he was also hard to understand and tried to out talk me. I do know that in the US you have to prove I took money, which he is saying I did, to put me in jail. I am going to try and protect myself so this does not happen again. I will be calling the FTC. Thanks for all the comments they sure help.

Yes, it is a scam. And yes, they do have some information on people, even SS#s. And this is simply because the 3 major Credit Agencies in this country were allowed to basically monitor our lives. Their unsafe networks, as well as having "customer services" moved out of US, enabled this tremendous chain of identity theft. They call and try to take advantage of people who would agree to pay, just to get them off their cases and people who believe their miserable threats. I didn't and I confronted them and they were not happy at all. I did not have any payday loan nor would I agree to even listen to the any further. I immediately reported to FBI, FTC, even IRS (because they had my SS#). Also you must report to the credit agencies, so they have an alert on your account. They went as far as duplicated my Debit Card and tried to get money from an ATM located in Paris, France. But, I alerted my bank and they actually flagged and closed my card right away. I was told, by an FTC rep (Federal Trade Consumer), to NOT even talk to them, hang up on them and report the #. I personally chose to change my phone number to an unlisted one. We must try, every way possible to fight back this huge chain of scammers who are a bunch of low life crooks, trying to make money this way. My personal concern is that we made it so easy fr them and we did not have sufficient protection. We are require to allow credit agencies to monitor us, but we do not have too many rights, except AFTER the fact, when it may be too late. Something needs to be done.
