In have had calls from a Roy Miller on March 22, 2012 and still continuing. He says he is from a law firm. That there was a judgement on me for three counts. I had no idea what he was talking about. asked what it was for he said it was a loan for 4000 dollars I had never applied for a loan. He gave me a case number I didnt know what to do. I went and talk to my grandparents they also ask questions. My grandparents have been through some legal stuff before and it seemed legit. They read of my social security number, my address, phone number, my checking account and savings account number also the routing number for them, They have where I work and the number for them. They said if i pay 436.45 the judgement will drop. My grandparents told me ok it sounds like it is legit. so I did it. That was all the money me and my kids had to live on for two weeks. I started to call around about my personal information being stolen. I didn't get anywhere yesterday. I have been getting the run around. Today I called the police department and they came and explained what was going on he said it sounded like a scam. He tried to call them and they didnt answer for him. After he left I called that Roy and they did answer. I asked him for the address and for his manager he gave me his manager and I tried to get more information. I then had the police back at my house and i called the number again and the officer talked to them.
How are we as Americans suppose to have our freedom when we are getting scamed and tricked by people who don't respect how we are hard working people earning our living I have three kids also going to school fulltime plus working full time. I am scared everytime I go to the store and use my cards. I can't believe anyone would still from kids. That money they got was the only money that me and my kids have for two weeks and now I got none. These people need to be stopped. I shouldn't have to live every day haveing to look over my shoulder and worry for my safety and the safety of my children. At least fo something for the personal information that they have.

On 01/29/2010 at 9:05AM I missed a call from: 954-486-7974. I called back this number, it was busy. I listened to a voicemail from this number, the man spoke in a strange accent that I have not heard here in Alaska, maybe Arabian?

It was a really strange voicemail. The man said his name was Jeff and he is an investigator from Cooper Law Firm. He claimed that I need to have my attorney give him a call regarding an outstanding payday loan or legal action would be taken.

He then left a phone number where I could reach him: 940-580-2385. I called him back at 11:01AM at was on the phone for 24 minutes arguing with him.

He claimed that this line is being recorded and anything I say can be used against me. He said his name is Jeff Scott and he is an investigator at Cooper Law Firm. He told me I owe $723.69 from a payday loan taken out in 2009, which was unpaid. He would not tell me from what company this loan was taken out, but did tell me that the mother company is US Cash Advance.

I told him I had a legal right to know which company this loan was taken out of. He proceeded to tell me that it is not his job to go and rummage around in his attorneys office looking for my file. I then asked him “Are you serious? Is this a joke?” He proceeded to get VERY angry and started yelling at me. Every time I tried to speak he told me not to interrupt him.

He then tried to “make a deal” with me. He told me that I could pay him $100 today and could pay the rest of the money on my next payday. I told him I couldn’t do that. He then told me to borrow money from my friends. I told him that was not possible. He told me that wasn’t his problem and that if I couldn’t pay, he was going to notify my current employer and I will lose my job, as I will be considered a felon.

It sounded ludicrous to me. I was extremely flustered and frustrated. I then asked him again, “Is this real? Because it sounds like a joke… you are EXTREMELY unprofessional!” He then began to yell and said, “Ma’am we don’t want your money, never mind! You are going to have legal action taken against you, good luck!” And he hung up on me.

I called the number back the next day. Someone answered, this is so and so. I can’t remember the name; in fact I couldn’t understand what he said, because of his accent. I then said, “This is a company?” And he replied, “Cooper Law Firm.” I could hear a lot of different voices in the background speaking. They all had the same strange accent.

I asked him where he was located. He said “Dallas, Texas”. I asked him for his address. He said: 1408 Bryan Tower, Jennifer Court, Texas, 76042.

The next day I received a missed call from: 954-485-4276 at 7:31AM – no voicemail, I called back, busy.

I googled this address… I couldn’t find anything.

I googled “Cooper Law Firm”, found a company in South Carolina, phone number: 1-800-356-0091. I called them, left a voicemail, letting them know that someone is claiming to be from their company trying to collect on a bogus payday loan. I googled “Cooper Law Office”, found a company based in California. Phone Number: 510-558-8400. I left the same message.

This was extremely frustrating to me. As in the past I have taken out payday loans. And have made payments to all of them.

This fraudulent team had my social security number, my past employer information, and my phone number.

I could ignore this and hope it goes away, but I am going to report this information to the FBI, and the Social Security Office, as these scammers have my information.

I advise anyone else going through this to do the same.

On 09/30/10 at 8:43 I was left a message on my cell phone that I or my attorney needed to call back and that it was imparative that we did it as soon as possible. When I called back I was being informed that I was being sued for $3200.00 for a $200.00 cash advance loan that I have never taken. They had informed me that this was an advance that I had supposedly taken at the beginning of the year and that I was being sued do to failure to reply. What scared me most of all was that they had ALL of my personal information. My social securty, adress, bank info, even my drivers license number. At first I was a little upset. Then as I was doing some reserch I had found I was not the only one being done to like this. All I can say after reporting this to the FTC it's ok to be upset, but DO NOT respond to them in any way. DO NOT answer the phone or call them back. Just report it and hopefully these people will get caught.

Today at about 12:30 I receive a 911 emergency phone call. Of course I thought something happened to a family member but when I answered the call it was a lady with an accent I could barely understanding telling me some company is taking legal action against me and to hold for a case # and to talk to a detective. I was on hold for about 10 minutes before this so-called officer came to the phone. I gave him my case # and he told me that US Cash Advance is filling legal actions against me for the amount of $300.00. He said they have tried to contact me via email and regular mail. I just checked my email and I go to my mail box almost everyday and I haven't received anything for US Cash Advance.

I asked the officer when was this so-called loan taken out? He said "a few months ago but that's not important. What's important is that you have only one hour to settle this, either get a lawyer and fight it in court or you will arrested and charged for not paying your debt." He also said I could pay the amount over the phone but never said how much and also tried to scare me by saying if you are found guilty you will go to jail for 6-8 years.

The fact that he couldn't give me an exact date that this "loan" was taken out nor could provide me with a phone number or account info to this loan company had me thinking that this was a fraud. I don't remember his name but his phone # is 321-745-2007 ext 941. This man was very rude and started to argue with me when I didn't understand what he was talking about. Like others said he knew my SS#, address and what bank I have an account at. I too have taken a payday loan before but the money was debt out of my account and I have proof of it on my account statements.

Even tho I know this is a fraud...now, I called my father and he called his lawyer and should anyone try to arrest me or walk up on me they will have trouble. I don't take lightly to threats, I know my rights.

See my previous complaints about this kind of scam. claiming to be the fbi/ law enforcement and more. go to fbi.gov and file a complaint. also call your local police department and file a police report and get it to all 3 of the credit bureaus to put a red flag on your social security number.

I received 2 calls saying that I took out a cash advance and didn't repay it. NOT TRUE!!! Never even took out a cash advance! They had all my info - SSN, Bank, previous employment. Scared me to death! I was told the same thing I have seen on here-I will be arrested, have to pay, etc. I was told that if I wanted to settle out of court, I would have to write an apology letter, pay immediately using my debit card and then I would receive all of the documentation that pertains to my "case." I called my attorney and filed a police report, they all said it was definitely a scam. I went to the Cash Advance website and it clearly states that this scam is taking place! I received another call a few minutes ago and told them that I had reported them and that what they are doing is fraudulent and then hung up. Two people have left messages on my voice mail (accents with American names) and said EXACTLY the same thing. It is definitely a script until you start asking questions. My question is did anything ever happen to anyone? Were you served with papers, taken to court, etc? The "law firms" that called me were American Law Services (831-531-4266) and Law Group of CA (760-935-3936). Thanks for all of this info! It has eased my mind!

I just recieved the very same phone call and they were very rude. They told me that they could not let common people like me speak directly to the attorney in charge. I was told that they would just go ahead and take me to court on fraud charges. I told him to go ahead and do that, he said that they have sent emails to my account asking for payment and that I did not need any further proof then what they have already sent out. Please be very carefully with these people make them give the info that they have on file do not give them back. I am going to wait and see if they do take me to court and I really hope they do because I have all of bank account statements to prove that I did not get any money.

On Tuesday 3/22/2011, I recieved a call from a Sean Clark stating that was a lawyer from the law firm of Stone and Roberts and that his firm was representing us cash advance. He stated that there was law suit against me for a unpaid loan in the amount of $712.00. I had two options to settle this debt either by paying $490.00 by April 22, 2011 by way of a walmart debit or going to court where I might have to pay $712.oo to $8, 000.oo. He wanted my lawyer to contact contact him. Things didnot sound right, so I ask for information that he would not give. I was given this number 9042709983 to us cash advance, I spoke with a man stating that he had been trying to contact about this unpaid loan. I advise him that I was not aware of any loan from them, which he inform that this loan was taken in May 2010 and deposit into my checking account. When I disputed the loan he became very irrate and refer me back to Sean Clark. I call him back to dispute the loan he became very irrate also making threats a lawyer I dont think he is. To buy time and expose them for who they really are, I agree to April 22, 2011 deadline. I went online and google us cash advance where I found that there was a scam in play. Well at this point I was very very heated, so called Sean Clark on Wednesday 3/23/2011 to advise of the shrunk (scam). He attempted to hold his ground, but right is right and wrong is wrong, so Sean Clark was advise that if I ever meet him face to face he has a whole can of whip a... coming to him. He hung up the so I call back and back and back and back and back you get the message. Next us cash advance and did the same thing until they wouldnot answer the phone eventually sending all calls to voicemail. These people talk with Indian accent, there is always alot of people talking in the background, and what really takes the cake is the transfering of calls that a joke, which is really them handling the phone from person to person. Just remember their the joke and the people they are trying to scam are punch line in the head or gut.

Was called by an Officer Michelle Johnson, 3-25-2011, and then "transfered" to a Mr Johnson who said I recieved cash into an account. I stated there was no such loan and as described above an Indian accent became irate when I inquired to the validity. He kept saying I was interrupting when all I wanted for him to do was answer MY question first. This is scary because on the first message that was left for me, it sounded as if they had my SS# before the message was cut off and ended. He did have my address and asked that I confirm it. I explained to Mr Johnson that I had reason to believe I was a victim of identity theft and hung up. My blood was boiling after this call and I hope I don't recieve another. Thanks for the tips in regards to the reverse "harrasse call". With these economic times and the hardships people are facing these days it is sickening to think of people preying on others for their last dime. I wonder how these folks sleep at night if they even have a soul to begin with.

As many others, I was also contacted at home and at work by someone telling me of a legal matter.
Steven Mark - 877-516-9379 - caller with a thick foreign accent and broken English
They said I was sued and if I did not take care of the matter, law officials would come to my work and home.
When I called the number to promptly try to clear up the matter, I was told I had defaulted on a pay day loan with their parent company US Cash Advance. They said I was being sued for 3 counts of criminal fraud and if I make a payment they could work a settlement. He could not give any details about the debt. He had my name, work and cell number, my ssn, email address and bank account. I had a pay day loan but had paid it back some time ago. He seemed to insist on a payment while I was on the phone claiming the court fees would total up over $3000. The case was going to court tomorrow and the only way to stop it was to make a payment right then. I told him I needed to confirm with my husband, but he didn't seem satisifed with that.
Since then, I researched the company, found out it is a SCAM and reported it to the FTC - 877-382-4357. I have a fraud alert on my accounts thanks to Trans Union - 800-680-7289.

I will look for a place to post the wav file of the initial voice mail.

This is great sharing. I received a similar call as well, and this info prompted me to call FTC.
FTC took my fraud report and advised me to call the Credit Bureau Number 1 800 525 6285 for the fraud alert.
Another number to call is 1 800 552 9963, Consumer Protection Hotline, to report the frauding agency.
Also, dont forget to call your banks where you have an account in case it gets breached. Be safe and be careful.

I recieved the following email today. Of course I reported it to all the reporting places. Do they think I'm going to just hand over my info like that? What stupid people they are. I have been dealing with this for the past several years. They used to call my daughter-in-laws grandmother, who I would never use as a reference. I told her how to look them up and report them as a scam. After she and I both told them we knew it was a scam they stopped calling her. This was several years ago. I don't think they have stopped calling me because I still get phone calls from every state in the union and no voice mails on any of them. I don't answer them because I figure if its legitimate business they will leave a message. Its funny how they all say I have to go to the court house of Texas and will be arrested. For one thing there are many court houses in Texas so which one are they talking about? Another thing is there is no way people get arrested any more for owing money, if that was the case the jails would be full of debtors and all the murderers and rapists would be walking free because there wouldn't be any room for them in jails. Don't fall for any of these idiots talk. They clearly don't know the law because they break it all the time, both the secular law and Gods laws, (thou shalt not steal).

I hope you didn't pay and I hope you don't live in a hole undergound. This is the latest scam it's from India. They told the nigerians to move over. Some of their crooks are being pursued by FBI/FTC in courts but you have to protect yourself.

You don't owe anything. If you applied for a payday loan online that's how they get all your info. They threaten they are sending the sheriff to lock you up, take your kids etc. Ridiculous! Last i checked there are no jails in america for debtors. So far the have scammed $5 million from gullible americans. They are not a legitimate collection agency. they are scammers based in india playing dirty because they know the feds can't reach them or do anything to them. Again you have to protect yourself.

This is how you play dirty back. Be ready with a sports air horn next time the call. Tell them let me get the CC listen carefully, then blow the air horn and burst a scammer's ear. They never call again. If enough people did this this will force them to fear calling americans.
