Some one from Beureau Criminal& Investigation a Law Firm alled me to my workplace around 2.38pm on Friday Nov 19th, 2010 he said his name is Adam Steven with Indian dialect. as I knew Indian people never changed his name with American name. In his message the said I have legal matter with my Social Security # on it. He also siad " Do Not disregards this call and I have to call back. If not something will be happened to me either at my work or at home" That thay I left early from work around 2.20pm I listened to this message on Sunday afternoon. And the same person try to reach me again on Monday. He called my Human Resources Department. I called Adam Steven and he transferred me to John Smith which also an indian. I tried to get any written notice and what lender I dealing with and what is his law firm name and address . But he can not mentioned it to me. Both Adam and John gave my the same address but with different ZIP CODE. I called the sheriff office & government office in that area just want to know if this company exist. but the government/sheriff said there are no such company with Beureau Criminal Investigation like that. John said he will persued thru court room and I have to pay $10, 000 OR I can just pay $945 today BUT... I have to write a letter and fax them mentioned that I agree to pay $945.00 and say THANK YOU.. THANK YOU.. can you imagine I have to say THANK YOU !!! So Contact police Department in my area and in that county to report this scam. Any one know any lawyer so we can press charges against this people why don't we work together ? Jeffry H

    That same thing has been happening to me and when I mentioned to him that I knew that was a huge scam he got down right rude and told me not to use that language with him. Talked to a real officer in a local bureau of criminal investigations and was made aware that they do not collect money or deal with that type of crime and to contact the FBI department of white collar crime and tell them what was going on and if enough people complained then something might get done about it.

    Hi, I am a Floridian that received a call from a Law firm threatening me about owing money to a company by the name of Cash Advance USA and when I began to talk with this guy by the name of James Matthews, he informed me that I was being recorded and if I need to respond to any of the questions ask please allow him to finish and then I could speak. This man accused me of stealing money from this company with no intent of paying them back told me that I closed my bank account so they could not receive there funds he was so rude to me. I have called this company repeatedly asking from documents of this loan. He informed me that he would send it by email. I am so upset because these people have my social security number, my address, my date of birth and I do not know how they got it. I need for someone to tell me what to do.

    I to have spoken with a man claiming to be Neil Johnson a lawyer with American Legal Service representing Cash Advance USA. This is the third such call that my wife and I have received from these people in three weeks. He told me that my wife had taken out a loan and never paid it back and that he was calling to Like with other people he began to threaten me and my wife that he would bring a law suit against us and that we were committing fraud for taking out a loan and not paying it back. He demanded that I pay him $300 plus interest. I told him that no loans were taken out and that I had no intension of giving him any money. He then became belligerent and threatened to take us to court. I told him to go ahead, I then informed him that I work for attorneys and have for 20 years and that I would be more than happy to see them in court.This is when he really became irate and starting yelling and screaming that I should send the money then he hung up on me. The best recommendation I have for anyone dealing with these clowns is to remain calm, get a name, phone number and an address where to send the money. Then after you have this information inform the person that you will be calling the authorities and reporting them. Then call your local authorities and report the incident. If you have applied for online payday loans or any type of school loans, they are able to purchase your personal information from these places. That is how they were able to get my wife’s information.

    I keep getting calls from some Indian guy saying it would be in my best interest to return the call, if not serious charges will be put against me. He also said he got the authorities involved. They even called my mother looking for me!!! I never responded to the calls, but I get them everyday. Next time I will answer, get all their info and report it...Thanks so much!!!

    i have been recieving the same exact calls fro this americal legal services company in regards to a cash advance i suppsoenly had. worstpart about it is that this fellow samuel belle and some john fellow keep insisiting its in my husbands name but they give me the last 4 digits of my social security number, how dumb are they. they stated i needed to go to walmart and buy some instant credit card and send them 500.00 and then the would send me a confirmation. i told them i wnt a letter because anytime you have any debt with collections, tey are required within 5 days of contacting yo to send it in writing. they havent yet. they started to call my family, my work and etc. we have called the local attorney general office and they re using phone numbers such as 916-266-9803, 916-226-9823, and a 917-284-9294 number

    I just had this happen to me today. The guy that called me name is Scott Adkins with an accent, didnt really seem Indian though. Told me I owed money to Cash Advance USA and I'm being acused of being part of a fraud. That if I don't have an attorney contact them, I will go to jail for 6months. They will get a hold of my job and I will lose it because they will tell my employment what I have been up to. They called my office phone and told me the name of where I work. I got really nervous because I'm a victim of identity theft, and wondered if it was something "the other me" had done. Until I started reading all the stories. I called the police department but I was adviced to call the detectives to find out if there is other complaints. The people that called me where from a 925-232-0808, saying I need to call them back and not ignore the call. I really couldn't understand what they were saying and would only allow me to ask a couple of questions, then told me to have my lawyer get a hold of them. I called back to see what other info I could get, the guy started yelling and telling me to not bother them anymore unless i had a lawyer.

    i was called by officer jack butler of the bureau of criminal investigations, then he mentioned he represented an law firm. apparently i faulted on a loan from cash advance USA; and claimed i was to be arrested for an complaint about my social security number, and the bureau also gave me a case number "6795CA2013" and that the matter would be resolved if i sent them $495 dollars or the matter would be sent to the police, that i would be jailed, and spend 6 months in prison. as for the alleged loan, i never received any money from any loan company. after an lengthy conversation, i told him that this sounds like a scare tactic and then came silence.today's date:Thursday, October 10th, 2013. time now is 5:15 PM hours...beware the phone they used was; 1646 863 8625 and my phone ID said the call was made from new york, new york city. beware; i truly think it an scam. i consider this call to me, nothing more than a scare tactic to scam money from me.

    well the same thing happened to me sort of. I bought a coach purse and it was a fake and very ugly. not even close to a real coach purse. the problem is the United States can't do much about overseas scams.
