Morgan & Associates Law Firm
This company has called me EVERYDay 10-20 a day stating I owed them money for a payday loan I did on line in 2005. I did no such thing, don't owe any money to any payday company. They informed me the charges include theft by deception, and check fraud. They stated once the charges are made they are going to put me in federal prison. They will have me fired by the end of the month if I don't pay. They also went as far as to say they will have MY CHILD taken away because I was unfit and cant my my debts. They have called me every name in the book and even said 'May god have mercy on me' Ok.

This is such a scam, I don't owe these people anything. They are calling non-stop, and will not provide me with ANYTHING in writing. Everytime they call its a new payday company I owe and and new name calling me. However I have had it out with MR. Roger Smith ( bet that's as fake as he is). someone please help, I cant have them saying that about my child. I know this is against the law, but what can I do as they have told me!

The same so called company called me also with the same PayDay Loan scam. The difference is that I did take out an Internet PayDay Loan last year in August, but I paid it off on time, and have the proof on my checking account statement. I know now that I should not have put such personal info on the internet, but at the time I was going through a Divorce and felt I had no choice. Anyways, it did panic me at first, but I KNOW that I do not owe anything and that this is a scam. It does make one nervous though. They also said that they would not send anything in writing when I asked. No legitamate Co would go about this this way. The thing that scares me is that they have my personal information. Well, I know one thing, I will not send them any money or let them debit out of my account. Hope anyone else is not scammed out of the HARD earned money that REAL workers make!!!

Morgan Associates Law Firm is run by a bunch of Scam Artists...it is terrible that they have all of our personal information. Call the Fair Trade Commisson 1-877-382-4357 and report them. Not only are they a pain but they are also making a bad name for the Payday loan companies that can help you out in a crunch.

Ignore them...do not give them any money ...its a SCAM...check with the Credit Bureau and make sure your information is correct!

These people from Morgan and associates have been calling me for 2 days now saying they are going to put me in jail and want me to pay them with a prepaid visa, I've asked them over and over to show me proof of the claims that I owe them money, they tell me once I have paid they will mail me all the documents after they go get them from the court house. The 2 that keep calling are a Patrick Johnson and a Craig Smith or so they say that's the names. They call from all different kinds of numbers. These people have been calling me at work and on my cell starting early in the morning till late at night, they won't leave me alone. Does anybody know how to get them to leave you alone? I think they are trying to get me fired by calling me at work. They keep telling me the same thing as the other people on here, saying they are going to have my wages garnished, take me to federal prison, put a felony charge on me and just all kinds of crazy, inappropriate things. I'm realling glad I researched them on here, and I'm concerned about the fact of them having all my information. Can we sue them for harrassment? THIS IS SUCH A SCAM!!!

My husband has received phone calls recently stating a faimly, friend or relative, which is the same as a family member. We had to listen to the message at least 5 times to understand what the foreign person said. He said that he was calling from this same law firm and they were located in California. Hello like nobody knows how to use the internet. The number is really located in Fernadeno Beach, Fl. They told my that his cousin, used her real name, had used him as a reference for the $1500 loan and that he is responsbile for it. But if he would pay $61 they would take it out of his name. They said they know she isn't going to pay so he is the responsible party. His cousin called to find out what was going on and they said they didn't want to talk to her, they want to have my husband take care of this debt. They refuse to supply any information to substantiate this claim. The said they were going to sue him and were going to prosecute him and garnish his wages. First off they can't prosecute over a civil matter and they can't garnish his wages because he works for himself. They asked him is address, SS#, and date of birth for verification of who he was to continue to discuss this with him. After they said all that. He asked don't you have they said yes but we need to confirm it. They were not, to say the the least, the most gracious professionals to talk with and they obviously do not know how southern people handle these matters. It did not end with have a nice day. I am going to call the BBB and the Fair Trade Commission first thing in the morning. My husband has already spoke with his attorney and when he advises them he has contacted an attorney and give them his name and number. They are to stop immediately or he can in turn sue them for harrassment. When someone calls and worries most moral and hard working people, what do you do, you pay your debts. But this has to stop. But what can we do other then report them. It is extortation; by means of intimidation, mail fraud; if its going to a mail box, ACC federal requlations; caller you on your phone, not to mention it is just down right disgusting that they have no morals. No may God have misery on their souls and get a real job. Thank y0u for letting me vent.

I just received a call from them! They scared the crap out of me at work. They wanted me to try to "take care" of this matter over the phone because my "case" is going to be filed tomorrow. I have no outstanding payday loans and am up to date on all my CC payments. It is very frightening that they have all this personal information about me and know where I work! The person I have received a call from is a "Stanley".

Thank you all for posting comments so I know I'm not the only one receiving these calls! If there is anything else I can do to report them, please let me know. I would hate for my co-workers to be answering harrassment calls from them every few hours or days and interrupting our work flow.

it is 8 something in the morning. I get a call from Morgan & associates abt "a loan" of course I needed to hold while, the minion transferred the call to his boss. I spoke to a Smith. When he tried to transfer me the first time it sounded like a fax machine was in my ear. I had no problem hanging up. Of course they called back. I was asked by Mr. Smith, why did I hang up. I told him about the fax machine noise. Mr. Smith says hold on and I am transferred to another person. Both men had thick accents that I could barely unserstand. I was advised that I was gng to be sued and that my attorney, yada, yada, yada. so lets just flip the script. who are you? what's the name of your company? who's your boss and where are you located. I was just told in california. I told him if I need to obtain an attorney I need "him" to know whom he needs to deal with & saying california is not good enough;not if I need reatain an attorney. I am not afraid of those scare tactics. first you need to prove I meant to purposely defraud someone. 2nd if you're gng to sue then given up pertinent information like, who, what, when, where & what for are very important & by california law must be given. Any company that calls to collect a debt must give this information. They hung up on me. I can not wait for them to call again. They didnt tell me what company they were representing. I will not be harrassed by some obscure company who wants to hide and play games with my life. What they don't know is that I have Multiple Sclerosis if they keep screwing with me I can & will sue them for harrassment. Just as soon as I find out where the heck they are, lol. if anyoone gets anymore information please share. Than you Janine

I had the same thing happen to me today. I have contacted a lawyer and he told me it was all a scam. I have contacted my attorney general and the federal trades comission. Now I need to figure out how to get these people to quit calling me.

I worked for a payday loan company & we heard that the company CASHNETUSA was hacked into and anyone who has had a loan with them is at risk of this scam company calling you & having your actual info. I actually was working with a woman to help her pay it off and we had an arrangement for the past few months. Today she received a call from a man saying she was going to be sued by them unless she paid it now. She told him she was paying it through my company. She decided to call me with them on another line...they demanded our info including our business license but refused to verify any of there info. He barely spoke english...he was defin calling from India. I told him to serve her with the papers cause she will have the proof from our company. He refused to fax her any paperwork and didnt even have an original acct #! Needless to say we are reporting them to the FTC. BBB and the Attorney General of California.

I got a call today from an "Eric Mathews". I could immediately tell they were full of crap. They have some info which I didn't confirm but they have it. They even provided with a case number. They said I borrowed from US Cash Advance, a company I've never heard of in my life. They stated they were from Crockett City, CA. I advised they were on crack and hung up. Be careful. Don't confirm any info and call the Federal Trade Commission on these people. 1 877 382 4357.

They called me repeatedly saying I owed a payday loan which had been paid off. They also said I was going to be reported for fraud, money laundering. When I asked who they were I could barely understand them due to India Accents and speaking so quickly.

I asked for e-mails or something in writting or possibly a fax indicating what the claims against me were. They refused and said they would file against me if I did not pay $ 1000 in prepaid visa card dirctly to them and then work out a payment plan with them.

They cerianly scared me but I'm not going to give them a dime. They call me as well 2-3 times a day. They seem to be calling from Lewisville Texas but it might be a call center routed to India. Very suspicious company and organization

Yes, I too am getting phone calls. I will report this to my attorney state general complaint office for scams. I just told them that I looked them up and there are quite a no. of sites related to them running scams. I asked, Jerry, "Do you know this is fraud and against the law?" He hung up.

My boyfriend received a call on his cell phone today asking for him he said it was him speaking and they then proceeded to ask if he could take a message for David, he said that is me they then told him he never said that. My boyfriend could not understand their accent but he heard my name and said she is here and passed me the phone. I then asked who it was and what they wanted. The man said his name really fast never did get it, then asked if I had retained a lawyer and they needed his info to fax him some very important legal papers. I asked why would I need a lawyer I have not be informed of the need for one. I was then asked if I had not been briefed on what I was being sued for, i said no and then was transferred to someone new who told me i was being sued and I asked him to send me something in the mail as I had no minutes on my phone and have not been informed of anything. I needed something in writing. He said something else and I told him i could not understand him and so I was passed to yet another person. I told him I will give him my address if he would send me something in writing concerning this matter he then told me I had his name and number and I should get to a land line and call him back when I could. i then hung up on him, I knew then and there that since they refused to send me anything they were trying to scam me. I then looked them up online and found this site and a few others referring to them, the number they called from was 760-733-3261 very thick India accents and rude as hell, I looked up the number it is located in Baker, CA. I can't wait for them to call me back, boy are they in for a surprise!

They have been calling my mother numerous times saying she owed for a payday loan that she never got. They have threatened her, and told her the police would be there to pick her up, the police would go to her house and search it, many different threats. She has been sworn at, screamed at and hung up on. After a while, I took the call and pretended to be her, and they did the same thing to me. They will not give any information and when asked they hang up. They stopped calling for a while again, and recently it has started back up. Finally we got a number to call them 510 722 6050 which is listed in Crockett, CA. You can't find a company name, or an address and when asked they hang up. So, flip the script, call them and tell them you are a lawyer. They won't give me any info about them. I, at one point, was told I was being transferred to the "spelling" department. Whatever you do, DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY MONEY OR INFO... If you would like to chat more about this, feel free to email me at lolaburnstien@yahoo.com.

I received a call yesterday from Morgan & Associates the telephone is out of Lewisville, TX. I go on the web and can not find any information about it. The person that called said his name was Shawn Woods but he had a thick India accent. I was told that I had a payday loan outstanding and that I would be arrested and sent to jail. That I should get a lawyer. I'm glad I look up the information because it made me nervous because the called my cell phone and called me at work, but the second time he called with the same name he just called my cell phone. How do we go about reporting this people?

I won't go into the same details as everyone else and be redundant, because my story is more or less the same. I won't say I have never applied for pay day loans - but I definitely don't owe any money to any of them.

Anyway, my concern is, I googled this company/the number they called from and there's hundreds of commentary like this site here with people whom have been harassed continuously by them. All of you, including myself just now, have reported them to the FTC - but that isn't doing anything, and the FTC isn't doing their job apparently if the 'company' is still circulating and harassing MORE people.

So how do we actually get these people in trouble? I'd like to sue them, they threatened me and my family.

I like all of you had the same experience with this company . i also turned them in to the F.T.C. i cant wait for them to take action so i suggest we all start a class action law suit not for the money just to shut them down! there are people who they scare and those people end up paying these low life's.I have an attorney friend of mine looking in to this matter i will keep you all posted.

I was called earlier in the beginning of the year that I owed money. I took out a payday loan before and it off a couple years ago more recent. This guy a Mr. Leo Fernandez (the guy I spoke to was Indian, his accent was very strong yet he has a Spanish name) claims that I took out a a payday loan from Cash Net USA. The first time they called they said I owed $5000.00 and recently this guy said $2084.84, I mean really. I argued with this guy for about ten minutes and it's a shame how much information they have on me. This is number 1-469-322-9962 is different from the first time also the company name is different Morgan and Associates Law Firm this wasn't the name they gave me first time around. I got the same threats as others have in their complaints. These people really need to be stopped. If they call again I will get as much information as I can and post it. They may be located in California, he kept telling me to go to the court house there. Don't know why they can't get a job like the rest of us.

I just got the same call from an Indian speaking man who goes by the name of John Fernandez, calling from Morgan and Associates Law firm (469)322-9962. It is clearly a scam and its ashame that they are calling people with these types of threats. I've contacted my PPL attorney and called the FTC. I suggest you do the same.
