I recived a call from 760-284-4631 last night about 7:30 pm telling me they were some investagations company for cash advance america and that i took out a payday loan in august of last year. These people had my e-mail, my home address, my telphone for my cell and home. They told me that i needed an lawyer and that they were going to file charges against me. I told them to send me the paper work and i would get a lawer. I looked up this number on the internet and found several post of this same company calling other people telling them the same thing. I do belive this is a scam, but i am going to contact my local police department and get myself a lawyer just in case.

My brother received the same phone call from # 408-905-0911, the so called "officer" refused to give him a address or provide written info, and gave my brother a fax # to fax all of his payment information. He was told if he didnt pay the debt he would be arrested tomorrow. I work in a collection agency and with Insufficient checks and never have i heard of this kind of behavior or process to collect a debt. Please be aware of those who call to collect, always get as much info as you can while you have them on the phone. My brother did say the man calling him had a hard accent, (overseas) in other words.

I received a call yesterday about these guys too.. saying I took out a payday loan and that when they attempted to collect it it bounced. They claimed to be from a law agency but refused to give a physical address, bar associate number, or even a date of transaction. They called my work and told a random person that I owed them money and was refusing to pay. I called my bank, they researched and found no deposits in the amount they indicated, or any withdraws that resulted in NSFs in over a year. I never even applied for a pay day loan so how they got my info I don't know but they had my SSN, bank information, work information and home information. I put a fraud alert on my SSN with the credit reporting agencies, had all accounts closed and reopened under new numbers, and filed a report with the local police department for threatening me (their voicemail said "You better call us today if you know what's good for you. If you don't, well... good luck"). I talked to the "law firm" (347 321 9063), all thick accents (sounded Indian to me).. they gave me a number to "Cash Advance America" (347 286 7407) and the guy refused to give me any other information. When I asked him for the bank info, he told me to hold on and then called the name of the girl who I was just talking to from the "law firm" as if she was sitting right next to him and I heard her in the background. These guys are fraud... plain and simple. I got a lawyer who is ready to counter sue if they really do try and file.

I received the same call on 2/22/2011 from 347-286-7407, saying my name came up in a fraud investigation with "Cash Advance America" ... These people had my name, address, place of employment and even knew who i banked with. I gave up no information and told them that i wasn't the right person they were looking for. I notified the police in my area and they told me that i wasn't the only one that received that call. Numerous people have received the same call and that it was a scam. I changed my banking information and put my s.s.# on fraud alert to be on the safe side. I advise everyone to do the same.

I received a call from this "Attorney's Office" supposedly representing the company (Cash Advance America). They called from 518-712-409 and left me voice mail stating that their call was urgent and that if I didn't return the call, they wish me the best of luck with the proceedings. I returned the call and got someone by the name of "Ronnie Anderson" on the line who supposedly worked for this lawyers office who was representing the company. They asked if I had an attorney, I told them that I didn't and they said that they could only forward the legal documentation for which I was being charged to my job and to my attorney, but I was not able to be provided a copy of the documents or the charges. They claimed that I took out a loan and when they went to my account to retrieve the funds, the payment were returned. I never took out a loan with this company, in fact this company doesn't even serve the area in which I live. They said that they would settle the debt for 350.00 and provided me with the information that I need to make a payment to them. If I do not make a payment, then they would proceed with the original charges they were going to file against me. Needless to say, I feel victim to this once before, but I will not again. I put my SS# on fraud alert and these ### are not getting a single dime of my money.

Cash America employees in Ohio improperly stamped management’s signature on loan collection affidavits for almost five years without anyone prior review or approval. Don’t these people have morals, how could you go to work everyday knowing you are doing something wrong, the sad thing is this is how many of these companies are run. Caring is not their strong suit. http://www.castlelaw.net/library/cash-america-to-pay-19-million-in-fines-for-robo-sigining-documents.cfm
