Cash Net Usa / Cash Advance Mutual / scam

1 United States Review updated:

am going through the same thing. These sounds like Indian people(one who's name is Richard Simpson, Jason Anderson and James Wilson) have been calling me at work as saying that unless I gave them $675 they were going to take me to court and arrest me. I wanted to know all the inforamtion about the company and the name of the law firm but all they kept giving me was that their name is The department of Law and Investiagation. I tried to reverse lookup all the numbers and each number that i looked up was from a different part of the US.The parent company name is Cash Advance Mutual. These people have all my information SSN, banking account info, address, phone numbers, drivers license info, EVERYTHING. I plan on closing my checking account out this week and changing my number, because of the harring calls. Any advice any one has for me about what addtional steps I can take I would be greatful. Anyone else beware of these phone numbers [protected] (jason Anderson-with a thick indian accent) [protected] (James Wilson- with a thick indian accent) and Richard Simpson [protected]( also with a thick indian accent)

    I have confirmed this is a scam. DO NOT GIVE THEM ANYTHING. I don't know how they had some of my personal information. A man began calling my work telling me he was taking me to court becuase I was late making a payment on a payday loan. I told them to call my cell phone and hung up. This man proceeded to call my work phone at least 20 times in thirty minutes. I started picking up the phone and hanging it up. He continued to harrass me at work over the next few days, offering to cut my payment in half and settle the dispute. I eventually agreed becuase this guy is going to get me fired if he keeps interrupting me at my workplace. The company they claim to be is CASH ADVANCE MUTUAL and they claim its affiliated with many online payday loans. I researched this online and there is no evidence of any affiliation. I started to call him asking for the online loan company I was paying off, but they refused to provide a list. I refused to make a payment until confirmed and continue to be threatened to be sued and that they would be sending the lawsuit to my work so that I would lose my job. I have been harrassed with phone calls. I went to contact this guy after work yesterday and I got a voice mail. This voice mail says his name is Charles and goes on and on with weird comments constanly stating "baby." I got in contact with him and confronted him and he refused to provide a address for the business. This is a SCAM, I am filing a police report. Do not talk to this guy, its in your best interest. I was given a name of Steve Carter 772-257-4988, but the voice mail says Charles.

    Same thing just happened to me. My Indian guy's name was Jake Harrison and his supervisor was Steve Carr. Phone # was 772-646-4625. Made the same threats but couldn't provide any information. DO NOT PAY THEM!

    They just tried to call my work phone number. I refused to pay anything. I told them that if this is legitimate, then have me served & I will contact my attorney immediately & take legal action against them. I told them never to call me or my family ever again & I will send out a cease-and-desist letter to them immediately if they continue to contact me via phone.

    I am going thru the same thing with supposedly obtaining a online payday loan from CASH ADVANCE MUTUAL which i didn't and now these indian or foreign sounding people have started back calling again. The first time they called was back in march they said they were some kind of Dept of Law and their intials where NYPD which i found ironic cause when i called the Better Business Bureau and they looked up the number i was told it was a New York number and probably a cellphone at that. Also there was no such business by the name they gave me. Tuesday 7-13-10, they called my job and left a message with my boss saying her name was Rachel and she was calling from the Dept of Crime and she really needed to speak to me regarding a matter from phone number 727-493-4835. Well i called and stopped her right before she could say anything and she transferred be to the supposed office manager his name is Samuel and i proceeded to shut him down to about me not having any money deposited in my account from any online payday loans and told him i have the bank statements to prove it. And futhermore when they were saying my account number it turned out not to be mine, but they have all my personal information SSN, birthdate, address, bank name, etc. THIS IS A DEFINETLY A SCAM cause they wont give any information to you about this law firm they represent and when ask for it in writing they try to change the subject or tell you they will pass along for further investigation to try and get resolved. I have called the Better Business Bureau, Federal Trade Commission, and spoke with the Attorney General in my state, i advise everyone else who's tryna be scammed by these people to do the same. Also i would advise making police reports just in case your identity ( lord forbid) is stolen or something else happens like the calls wont stop you have back up or at least with numeral complaints they will hopefully start checking them out.

    I had my first call today stating I did not pay for an on line payday loan that was NEVER even obtained. I asked the man with the heavy indian accent for verification to be sent to me and the number of the company he was working on behalf. He gave me his name as Frank Smith and the company as Cash Advance Mutual. He refused to give me their number but gave me his number (772-245-2032).He said "investigators and cops " would be sent to my home if I did not make a payment today. I declined to make a payment and did a little research instead. It looks as if this scam is everywhere. When I called back to get more info I spoke with a man named Steve Carter who was in fact also Frank Smith. I asked for their address and was given 101 East Green Street, Ithica NY. That is the public library. I called the local police then called the company back to confirm the address and let them know that I contacted the police. The same man then said they were not permitted to give out their address. I told him not to call my number again or I would file charges against him. He hung up on me. I have yet to recieve another call today. They were very intimidating and implied they were working on behalf of the government. They threaten to call people you know and go to your place of employment. Everyone beware. Contact your local police if you receive phone calls like this.

    I started getting calls about a month ago from these Indian people with American names, threating me that I owe money and if I do not pay them they are going to come to my place of employment and my home. They call me from all different numbers like area codes 772, 713, 913, and many more. They have even been calling my mom and threating her. And when you ask them where they are from all the tell you is The Department of Law and Investigation and if you ask them who they are associated with they change the subject. They also refuse to answer why they haven't sent anything in the mail. DO NOT GIVE THESE PEOPLE ANY INFORMATION. I am going to call today and make a police report.

    I just received a call from some Indian man with an extremely heavy accent who was telling me I owed them $176.00 from December and that the company is Finance Cash Advance Mutual and he then told me my email address. He said he was an officer and would transfer me to his supervisor. I couldn't even understand his name. I told him that I dont owe any money and that if he wants to go to court I'd see him there only the law suit would be against him. He proceeded to tell me that I would "lose and to be prepared to do hard time" and hung up on me. When I called him back he said dont call me back You will be brought to court. I called again and asked for a company number. the two numbers I was given were 1-646-727-7153 and the company number 1-646-727-7049. He said the compnay was advance mutual and they were in New York. he would not give me an address and said he would have his company call me right back. Its almost company is open this late on a Friday. I told him I wanted an american to call me, someone who actually spoke the language. surprise surprise noone has called me.

    Yes I just got a call couple days ago. Her name was Ivy and said I had a payday loan that was not paid. I asked for the name of the loan comapny and she told me cash advance mutual. I asked when did I take out this loan she said last Dec. of 2009. She was not answering my questions and I said dont call me back. She called back I didnt answer the call.5 minutes later another call from some guy saying the same thing and saying that investagators would come to my house and to my work place to take care of this matter. What can I do to get these people from calling me?Should I go to the police?

    Got a call recently-- same people with thick Indian accents and obscure American names in a Plano, TX area code claiming there was a loan taken out in my name for x amount of money, and that I will face "serious consequences" if I don't pay them immediately. I was pretty skeptical right off of the bat, really. They're pretty shady. Called the number back after I got out of work that night to leave a message, and there was no answering service, prompting me to look up the company online, and find this forum, confirming my suspicions.

    They left another message the next morning, from a different number, being as sweet as ever, of course. I returned the call, this time reaching the "Legal Department of Investigation" rather than Cash Advance Mutual (convenient they shared the same number), and told the person that if they intended on serving me, then to do so, and that in no way will I continue any correspondence with them over the telephone. I'm still waiting to see if I receive another call.

    I fully intend on reporting them to my attorney general on the fraud hotline (not sure how it might work in other states). Hopefully something will come of it. I'm also going to inquire with my bank about potential security risks. All in all, it's just precautions and, with luck, shutting down at least one of their operating "facilities."

    I have also been a victim of this fraudulent activity. Back in May 2010, I started receiving calls from a lady with a foreign accent stating that she was from the Department of Law and Investigation, and if would be in serious trouble if I didn't make a payment of $585 i owed to a online payday company. When I told her I didn't make any payday loans, she proceeded to tell me all my personnel information including last four digits of my social. Well she got really pissed when I told her I didn't have any money and would not be able to make the payments. So I suggested we work out a payment arrangement, she stated that I had to make the payment in full. After going round for round, she finally gave up. A couple of days later, I received a voicemail from a Jason from the alleged company. When I returned the phone call and asked for Jason, I ended up talking to this female again. We then had another confrontation because I didn't want to give her my account info. She hung up. I tried calling back over and over. I guess everytime my phone number came up on her phone she pressed the ignore button. About two weeks later, she left a message, and I called back just to see what she was going to try and pull this time around. She asked what were my plans. So I told her, I still didn't have any money, so she told me that my file would be brought to court and a judgement would be filed against me for fraud and theft. Well here it is September 3, no charges yet! Now I'm being harassed by a "Steve Foster" from the Dept. of Law and Investigation. He asked for my acct. info. and I told him I didn't have any money, so everyday he has been leaving a message about me contacting them or I will be charged with fraud. They are calling from different phone numbers. "Steve" has even called me from an area code in my area. They thought I was crazy enough to give out my acct. info., but I wasn't. As a matter of fact, just to be on the safe side, I have changed all of my acct. numbers! PLEASE BEWARE!!!

    I applied for a cash advance online thats when the phone calls started. It seems to be the same man everytime. He has a indian accent. He tells me I have been approved for cash advance loans. So the other day on my voice mail he was back. I knew his voice. He said my first name not my first and last name. Told me that I was in trouble, there was a issue with my social security number. He stated I needed to have my lawyer or myself call him back. He couldnt even get his phone number straight giving me 2 diffrent area codes. He also said good luck at the end. He said he was from the federal crime investigation unit..His name was officer black. So I called him back and got no answer just some kind of crazy voicemail. Finally the next day I got through and he answerd as Patrick. I asked for officer black, he paused for a minute and said hes not around but he can talk to me. I asked what it was about he told me. Then asked how I wanted to take care of it. I said take me to court. That made him so mad he started screaming at me and hung up on me. I called back and said i wasent done. I told him the scam is all over the internet and they are not going to be getting money from anyone and I was calling the police. He told me to go right ahead. Watch out for these people.

    this is sad, they just called me and my husband cussed them out and kept asking them how did they get any of our info. A man named Tom Brown with a thick indian accent said I OWED money from a payday loan since jan 2010 which is very incorrect as I just started getting famiiar and inquiring this past August. We came to this website while we had him on the line and read some of the comments to him, then he hung up, before then saying "go right ahead and call the police, I know where you live...", like the person above said, beware. I will be calling the police tomorrow

    People I want to let all of you know that I to am a victum. I want you to know that I have been in touch with all companies that I know I have business with. Threw all of the investigaring that I have done my self. I have found out threw the companies I do busness with, the State Police, the FBI and Home Land Security, YES I have gone that far. The majority of people calling us here in the U.S. who have a strong Indian accent are 100% FRAUDS!!!
    They have some how gotten into the pay day loan companies systems and have gotten all of our personal information.
    That is how they know who it is that we have taken pay day loans out with as well as how much of a loan we took, where we work and more. I urge everyone of you to contact Home Land Security with all the information you have on these people who have conacted you claiming to be a LAW ENFORCER persuing collection on a debt you owe the such and such pay day loan company. Here is Home Land Securities web contact info. that I found on the internet Also I have been given this phone number from one of my pay day loan companies that I cantacted directly. This is the number they gave me for Home Land Secuirty 1-989-497-0580. I will be calling the FBI tomorrow to confirm this phone number.
    This is a nation wide problem. Even thow this has happened do to the fact that our country is outsourcing things like this. We are not to talk to anyone with a strong Indian or Nigerian accent. Hang up and call the company they say they are calling in behalf of before you do anything no matter what kind of threat they give you!!!

    I will be back with updates and info. as I to go threw all I can regarding this FRAUD. I lost $2000.00 do this bull. Thank goodness it isn't more. It is now my mission to do what ever I can to fight this at a fedural level and inform the U.S. public on every thing I find out. To help victums of these horable criminals!!!

    Oh my gosh this is also happening to me and these people will not quit calling. I never received any money from these people and don't owe them anything. I agree with all of the fears because these people knew my past employer, mom and sister's names. They stated with a foreign accent of some kind (not sure) that they are pressing charges on me for a cash advance loan that I had gotten online and did not pay back owing them $565.00. They stated that they were the Department of Justice and there were three allegations of charges including theft deception, check fraud and violations of something. They said that I had gotten a cash advance loan and the EBT was returned so obviously I freak out and contacedt my bank and have my account pulled and there was nothing there of course but wow they knew so much about me. The first woman that called was named Michelle Lewis (209-580-6419 ext 9925940) and left me a voice mail that I listened to and then at the end she stated that if I didn't call back and she would ask that God bless me. I called back and got a man named Michael with an accent again giving me all of the above information reporting that I would have an email that had all of the information in it and of course did not have any email from anyone. I am going to have to change my bank account, cell phone number and email. These people make me very angry and I will never do anything online again giving any personal information!!!

    This just happen to me the last few days and today 11-18-10 here in Alaska and they are claiming to be calling from California. How do you get them to stop calling your work phone? They told me they are with the Crime Prevention Unit and I spoke with a John Ricarrdo and he gave me a phone # of 760-624-8195.

    OMG. This same thing happened to me 2 days ago. I received a call from some guy claiming that i owe $370.00 from an online cash advance. First of all the # he initially called me from was not a real number started out as 0110525###. he gave me 469-587-7509 to call him back. I knew I had taken out a loan before but all of my documents show that everything has been paid. So I called him back. This guy became angry with every question I asked. He could not provide any details about this alleged loan. Of course I told him I would see him in court. He threatened me & hung up on me. He had all of my information so i am definitely closing my bank account. I kinda figured this was a scam and after reading all of your comments i am sure it is.
