Payday loan / phone call

1 OR, United States Review updated:

Help!! I received a phone call this morning from National Advance Payday. A rep--Kelly Martin stated I had committed 3 counts of fraud & would be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. She said I had taken out a loan & not repaid. I have taken out several loans with different companies (which I'm ashamed of) but she said they represented numerous payday loan companies & could not tell me which was not pd. She said I needed to pay $1250 immediately or face charges & My due amount would go up to over $5000. She said I could pay $300 today, $450 by Friday, & the remainder by next Friday. She keeps calling back to get my permission to run my card & wants me to fax a letter with an apology & permission to charge my card these amounts. She said if I don't Legal action will be taken tomorrow & my job will be notifed of my charges. What do I do?

    donot under any circumstance pay these people, this is apparently a new scam, using the internet. They have no paper trail, no signatures, no signed wage garnishment authorization forms. your employer will notify you before acting on any wage garnishment agreements. this will give you a chance to prove this company a fraud to your employer. crime monitoring said national advance payday tried to withdraw funds from my account, but the bank didnot honor them. I checked with my bank for the time frame they said they tried to withdraw funds and my bank had no record of them. DO NOT be afraid of them. I have sent a complaint to my states attorney office about both companies to have this investigated and to have something on record, in case they try any funny type of legal stuff, regarding this bogus loan.
