Cash Advance USA - false payday loan claim

I received 8 phone calls in a row from SCS calling on behalf of advance cash usa today and my husband also recieved a phone call from them at his work. When I asked them what is was in reguards to they told me that it had to do with my husband's social security number and that it was very important. When my husband got home from work he called the number that " Ed Hawkins" had given me over the phone. He told my husband that he had borrowed $300.00 from advance cash usa from june to october of 2010 and that we had better find a good attorney. He had my husband's social security number and license info, along with his work info. He then started to ask my husband why he didn't pay the money back, my husband then calmly told him, " because I didn't borrow it". My husband asked him for the number of the place we had supposedly borrowed from which was 916-282-7401. When he called the number it kept going to an odd voicemail recording, which did not even tell the name of the business you were calling. I then looked up advance cash usa on the computer and it pretty much told me what I already knew, that it was a scam. I then called SCS back and told them I knew they were trying to scam us and if they called again that I would contact the better business bureau, that was when they decided to hang up on me. They haven't called back, so I hope I got my point across.

They must be doing a mass calling right now. I just talked to that same middle eastern guy and told him I wasn't paying and he is welcome to talk to my lawyer. He tried to say, well if you can make a lil payment today we won't take legal action. He just doesn't want to talk to my lawyer.

Next time you hear from them, let them know from them moment you identify yourself that you are recording the phone call, also let them know any other communications & all phone numbers from this point on will also be recorded because you feel threatened and that you feel you are being scammed and until they can provide you with legal documents proving who they are and what they are trying to collect you will not send them any money per the FBI . (this is what I was told to do by the FBI) This deters alot of these scammers from calling over and over. Get a cheap recording device and use it! Call your local police and file a police report as well as the 3 major credit bureaus and the social security department cause they have your numbers. The FBI website also has an email link on their site to identity theif crimes. You can email them as well. This is a classic scam where you have sent your information online to someone and these people have it.WHATEVER YOU DO, DONT SEND THEM A PENNY!

Cash Advance USA - its totally a scam

Called my work and stated I owed them money, I had no idea who this company was or what they were talking about. They couldn't tell me any information like when or how I "recieved" this so called loan or prove to me that I requested it. Threatened to come to my home or my work until it was paid, however they couldn't even tell me what the amount was they were trying to collect.

BEWARE! Do not pay this company, block them from your phone!

Thank you,

Lisa

I got a call today stating that I took out a payday loan last month, and that I had not repaid it so I was going to be prosecuted if I didn't pay today. This is total crap. Never have I gotten a payday loan. Checked with the bank and they agreed it is a scam. Do not take these guys serious. The number they called from is [protected] and the mans name if he could be called that was James.

Cash Advance USA - harrassment

Well, a couple of weeks ago I started receiving calls at work from a company called advance cash usa.They claim I owe them 300 dollars.Now I have taken payday loans before but, I don't recall that particular company.They said advance is a huge companyan that they don't need my money they just want to make an example out of people like me who according to him commit internet fraud. Which I found insulting, I explained how I am not trying to get over. I told Alex mathew at 347)844-6647 that I will contact him this coming Monday after I have the people I bank with give me a printout of any wire transfers into my account for April 2010. They were so rude an tried convincing me to just pay it that I was better off than spending more money an legal fees .I explained to him how its not a problem for me to pay something back if I actually owe it . I told I have to verify with my bank. An would get back to him on Monday evening. The weird thing is they have have my social, email bank routing info, work number etc. Its scary I know they have many affiliates but, is it legal to share that much info on

Cash Advance USA - payday loan I never got

I have been receiving phones calls regarding a payday loan that I never got. I have been getting these calls on my cell and at work. I was threaten that I would lose my job and go to jail if I did not pay this loan back. I told him that I checked with my bank and I did not received a deposit for the amount that they say and the only deposits that I did get was from payroll. I called them back to let them know and they started to get ugly with me and told me that the local police would be at my house to pick me up on the next business day and that I would have to pay 5 to 6 thousand in court cost and things like that. I also told them that I would not pay back a loan that I never got and they told me they had proof that I got it, I told them to send me the paperwork and everything they had to prove that and he just kept yelling at me and refused to give me the info I requested. The name of the gentlemen that called me at work is Mike Watson, I am assuming not a real name and the phone number is 213-514-5334. Something needs to happen cause this is the second time someone has called me regarding payday loans that I never received and threaten me.

File a complaint with your state Attorney General. They have to provide you with copies. I have had this happen to me and it could be someone put your information into a computer. The company can see what bank and bank account the funds went into. It's their job to prove that you owe it. They have to stop calling you on the job if you ask them to, if they continue, be sure to report them! Good luck!

Cash Advance USA - payday loan scam!!

I am a hardworking married woman raising our 4 children... I am driving to work this morning - I get a call... bluetooth on - I answer it. She then proceeds to tell me that I took out a loan for $350.00 and I am being charged on 4 counts of fraud.. that a police officer is on his way to come an arrest me. At that point I pulled over... shaking with anger - I asked her where she was calling from... she wouldnt give me the name of the company - I asked her when did I take this loan out? she wouldnt even give me an exact date of when I so called took this loan out - she said some time in 2009... I told her that if this is a debt that I owe I am more than happy to pay it but I have never gotten anything in the mail regarding this issue... she stated that she emailed me - first of all if you owe money and they are trying to get that back they will not send an email... its called certified letter! Its called you have to go through Civil Court and go through the proper channels to sue anyone - these people need to get a clue and if they are living in the USA try reading our rights... then maybe you would know that what your doing by calling and harrassing hardworking people is against the Federal Law - I was yelling at her telling her to let the cops come an arrest me that I have rights... and bring the media too so they can know what you all are doing.
Beware DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION - THIS IS A SCAM! if you truly owe a debt they dont collect a debt like this - I just spoke with the Edmonds Police Dept of Washington and he stated that police DO NOT come and arrest you for oweing a debt - its a CIVIL MATTER... she then transfers me to an Unit Officer Tom Obrien mind you with an Middle Eastern accent.. doesnt he know Obrien is an Irish last name? what an idiot - anyhow begins to tell me that I owe this I need to pay my debt that I am irresponsible and worthless... he then proceeds to tell me that the Police will be coming to get me soon - LOL They called me at work and left a horrible message... they called me on my cell numerous times from 415-707-0560 which is I think San Francisco area then he gives me an 252-378-3167 a North Carolina - I am pissed! I cannot believe people can do this - there needs to be a law against this sort of thing... its not right that people can call and harrass a hard working person like this - look if I owe a debt I will pay it - give me the documentation to prove this but if you dont have a date for me or information all you scammers can go * (F*^*^&^%) yourself!

Cash Advance USA - fraud/scam

OH MY GOSH! This very same thing has been going on with me for the last 3 days. Stating I owe $300 for an online cash advance from back in November. Your story is almost verbatim, except I talked to an additional guy named Danny who wouldn't give me his last name and he is supposedly the supervisor. I got additional calls from these two numbers 5-642-214-9335 and 917-284-9293 oh and the UNKNOWN CALLER. When I asked for details on this specific loan such as the website I was to have supposed to have done this through and the date they could not give me any information and got REALLY irritated with me for questioning them. I got hung up on a couple of times and called back to speak to a supervisor and he (Danny) told me he could not give me any information or he would loose his job and hung up on me.
I to am filing a complaint with the FCC, State Attorny General, and the Federal Trade Commission... they also stated they were calling from New York City.

Wow, this has happen to me as well. They stated I owe $300 for an online cash advance from CASH ADVANCE USA in March of 2010. What's funny is when I called my bank it showed that I didn't open my account till July of 2010. I talked to a person which said he was an officer and that my file would be downloaded to the county in which I lived and 3 charges was going to be filed against me and that they needed my lawyers information if I wanted to go to court. So I asked for details all they gave me was the bank that the money was supposed to be deposited and the month and date so I contacted my bank that's when I found that my account wasn't open til July and no such depoist's was made. So I called the number back told them that my lawyer wanted them to mail all documents of said deposits and warrants. Well they claimed they couldn't mail any information I needed to give them my lawyers info and hung up. Well I tried calling the number back and now it's says the code or codes I have dialed in incorrect, and I haven't got anymore calls from them.

Cash Advance USA - rejected for no direct deposit

Cash advance companies approve you have you send all your paperwork and then reject you for lets say no direct deposit. In the ad it never states you must have direct deposit. Cash advance network is a rip off. They need to state direct deposit needed so they don't waste consumers time. If you work you don't need a bank statement, but if you receive benefits they need bank statement and benefit stub. Thats discrimination.

THis place is the biggest rip off and should be investigated. They charge 120 dollars every time you make a payment to them. Even if you pay the balance in full whether it is the first payment, second, third up to as many until it is paid off. Each payment costs an extra $120. This company is getting away with taking advantage of people in a bad financial situation. This should be illegal.

When I read no faxing, no credit checks. But suddenly here comes the faxing, you need a bank statement, paystub, voided check etc. when all information of this is on the application. Can't seem to talk with anyone. It is a waste of time. I say try and do without. Rip off city. When owe $300 you are charged $390 and when you miss a payment it goes from $300 to $594.
