A man claiming to be Jack Smith, with a heavy accent, kept calling me and my husband saying that we had taken out an internt payday loan through Cashnet and never paid it back. He had my bank account information and my social security number but when I pressed him for further information, he told me I would get all the information after I paid around $800.00. I told him that I had not taken out any type ofloan whatsoever on the internet or elsewhere and he called me a liar. He said that if I refused to pay, he was sending the police over to arrest me and put me in jail and that then I would owe thousands of dollars. I told him to go ahead and send the police and he became very abusing verbally and threatening me. I told him I was contacting Internet Fraud, my bank, and the police, then told him to never call back and I hung up. He uses more than one phone number and name. Do NOT send any money! This is a big scam and I contacted the proper authorities so all I hope for now is that they catch this person or persons and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.

    This is a copy of what I posted on one of the CashNetUSA complaint sites. It seems to be a HUGE scam that's hitting a lot of people. Please use caution. Read on:

    "Everyone PLEASE BEWARE!!! That phone call that you're getting is NOT from! There is a scam artist using the company name CashNet.comwith a very thick accent that's calling people claiming that they're going to send someone to your workplace to arrest you for fraud unless you make a payment to him RIGHT AWAY!!! I ended up harrassing HIM trying to find out what the hell was he talking about. He would place me on hold for extended amounts of time in the hopes that I would hang up in frustration. I finally contacted CAshNetUSA to find out why they had someone from their company harrassing me, especially since my account had been paid off a long time ago. They said that there is a scam that is going on at this moment and that under NO CIRCUMSTANCES am I to make ANY payments to whomever this person is. They are investigating through legal channels, but until they can catch this fraudulent company, unless they can provide you with LEGAL DOCUMENTATION as to when the loan was originally taken out, or any legal proceding that are being placed against you (which would be hand delivered by your local authorities, ANYWAY), do NOT make the mistake of thinking that this jerk is from CashNet USA or any other loan companies with similar names. IF HE CAN'T PROVE IT, DON'T FALL FOR IT!!!"

    I would love to find a way to find these people and sue the crap out of them. They have violated so many state and federal laws and until they are sued they will continue. I say, let's hit them where it hurts, their pockets!!!

    What these companies dpo is that they sell your information and account to other companies for collection. They figure they don't care what tactics these companies use to get their money, it is not on them because they are not the ones doing the dirtywork and since they have SOLD your account to a 3rd party, they are not legally responsible. Wrong, if they are collecting on behalf of another company, both parties are responsible. I would love to find them and sue them.
