I recently applied online for a payday loan. I came across Cash Advance Now. I received approximately 3 emails from them stating I had been approved. They were well aware that I have a Prepaid Card. I received an email with all the pertinent documents to print & fax to them to received my loan. Upon opening the documents they sent, all the information was already input & all I needed to do was sign & fax. I spoke with them the day after I faxed the documents & was surprised at the response I received. I was informed then, that they did not deal with the bank, where my card was issued. When I asked why they sent the papers, already filled out & saying they had already spoken with the bank & everything was a "go", instead of informing me at the initial completion of their online application that theydid not deal with this particular bank. To my surprise, I was treated as though I was some kind of idiot. I was talked to with a very unprofessional attitude, called names, hung up on, etc. The very next day, I received the same documents via email again. My response to this was, if they did not honor my bank, then why send the same documents again. I basically forgot about it, never received any funds, etc. Then, to my absolute shock, I received a phone call from an attorney's office, stating that Cash Advance Now, had filed a law suit against me for fraud. I informed this person, how could I have committed fraud, when I never received any funds? I explained the entire situation & also, informed them, I still have the original documents, this company emailed to me, if they needed proof of their dishonesty. In my opinion, this company should be investigated or shutdown. I think they are ones committing the fraud. I can't believe these companies are supposed to help others, when needed, but instead, this one chooses to harass & attempt to destroy a person. If there is anyway they can be investigated, it would surely help a lot of innocent people, like myself, who believe in them, only to have something like this happen. Upon completion of the attorney's call, I was told there would be no further action taken against me & they would be contacting Cash Advance Now for making false statements & basically "wasting their time". I also offered to send the attorney a copy of the bank statement showing no transaction. This company told me in one of their emails, that they already contacted my bank & receive the information needed from them. WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T APPLY WITH THIS COMPANY!!!

    There is another company that goes by cash advance, saying they are cash advance now. There have been multiple people with this situation. All persons with these threats need to forward these emails to the address that they are given when they call the actual Cash Advance Now company at !-[protected]. They are trying to get these kinds of fraudulent emails and threats to stop. Because the people that are sending these out are NOT with cash advance now!!
