I did a little research on these guys when the "fraud. and theft recovery bureau" informed me that I took out a loan and if I didn't pay the loan in full I would be sued for like $5000. I learned that the guy is doing this out of afghanistan, he has 13 employees, and has been in business for 2 years. I know all of this because he told me. He also threatened to kill me and my family when I called him on his scam. He admitted the whole thing to me so don't be fooled. And do not give him any money.
Oh, and the fraud and theft recovery bureau is an actual company founded here in the US to investigate insurance fraud. When this "legit" company was shut down by the owner in 2007, they stole the name because it sounded more intimidating.

    I've been told the same thing as everyone else, but my BS meter went off IMMEDIATELY. The only reason they have anyone's information is because of third-party sharing. I listened to the Middle-Eastern man with the English name for about 3 minutes to see what other information he was trying to get me to disclose before shutting him down. This is DEFINITELY a scam! There's no FEDERAL lawsuit, and no CRIMINAL charges! If money is an issue, that would be a CIVIL case! Don't believe a word of it...

    I got a call today from a guy with a really strong indian accent saying that I have a payday loan with Cash Adavanced USA and owe them 356.00 and they tried to take it out of my acct but it came back as NSF. I wanted to get more info and he said I needed to pay it but he could not except a credit card only a money gram or western union. I said I would pay once I had a bill and he said he would not send one. He told me an officer would be at my job tomorrow to serve me papers for court. He even knew the name of my employer. Then he hung up on me. I called back and asked to speak to someone else and he hung up. I called back asking for more info but he kept saying he would not discuss and kept hanging up. So glad that I googled the name and saw it is a scam

    At the end of September I received a message on my work voicemail stating that I needed to call a number (couldn't understand the call back number given)because I was going to have legal action taken against me because I failed to payback a loan I had gotten. Since I couldn't understand the number I didn't call back. Well on October 19th at 7:30am I got a call from a man with an East Indian accent tell me that he was from Cash Advance USA and that I got a payloan that I didn't payback. I asked when and he said October 2010. This man had my bank info, date of birth, last 4 of my SS no and full name. I asked for a number to call him back because I was at work. He gave me a number but I still couldn't understand him so he told me that I was too stupid to comphend and write down a phone number. I hung up on him. He called me back and I told him that since he knew all the information he needed that proceed with the legal action. He called me 30+ times within the next 4 hours. I finally stooped to his level and cussed him out and told him my employer did not allow personal phone calls and not to call me back. He called back but I didn't let him talk...I talked! I told him this was harrassment and told him to call my attorney, Mr.XXXX and told him to look his number up since I was too stupid to "comprehend number". I called my attorney friend and told him what happened and he said to document everything and that if I cam get an address from them he would file a police report for me because of the threats they made. This a scam and identity theft. They have not called back since.
