Sonic Cash NetAwful company

1 Review updated:

This morning I received threatening voice mails from a person named 'Michael'. This person had a very thick foreign accent. The call was made from a Verizon phone which, when called back had been disconnected. The 818 number was left to call back.

The caller claimed in the messages that he represented someone I owed money to and if either myself or my attorney did not call 'post haste' that Officers of the Law would appear at my door to arrest me the next day. At the end of the messages the person said, 'If you do not comply, I can only wish you good luck for the safety of you and your children!'

When I called back I was put on hold for more than 15 minutes. So I hung up and called right back. I received a busy signal. Later in the day I was able to get through.See Top 10 Worst Companies in Los Angeles, CAThe party at the other end of the line claimed to be an attorney representing Sonic Cash Net and proceeded to tell me that I owed them money -- he would not give the amount-- he would not give me the company's phone number so I could verify the authenticity of this claim, but told me that if I did not cooperate with him, I would be hauled off to jail and charged with bank fraud and other federal crimes. I hung up on him. My husband and I reported the incident to the FTC immediately.
After filing the FTC report, we 'Googled' Sonic Cash Net and found massive numbers of postings about their disreputable 'collection' practices. This is a scam run by foreign nationals attempting to coerce people into sending them funds through Western Union to 'absolve' themselves from the bogus charges being made against us by these people.
Don't cave in, don't give them any personal information. Report them to the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) and your local police department.
This is terrorism against individuals. Advise everyone you know to be aware and not fall for these tricksters.

    I received a call on my home phone from a gentleman with a heavy accent who said his name was John. He stated I was to return the call as soon as I received the message, telling me I was going to be arrested and go to jail because I owed for a payday loan. I tried to call him back but got no answer. I called again the next morning and was given to a man by the name of Scott Miller who told me the same thing. That they were sending the sheriff to my home with a warrant for my arrest because of a payday loan that I did not pay. I admit that I owe for some loans but I am making payments on them and have paid off some. He would not tell me the name of the company that I got the loan from just that Sonic had many companies they sent out loans for. I have no objections paying off money that I owe, but I do not like any one calling my home and telling me I'm going to be arrested.

    I just received a very similar call from someone named Shawn. He stated my references on the loan would be arrested because I had not paid the loan back and I should show up in court on Monday (3/16) to answer to the judge. He also stated this was a federal loan so I could not file bankruptcy on the loan. He refused to give me any specifics; I asked him to fax me the alleged loan documents and he refused. I pushed him for the name of the company I had gotten the loan from and he said the loan was given to me by a company named Cash Net. I never head of Cash Net much less have gotten a loan from them. However this guy did have access to accurate information concerning me. The phone number he called from was [protected].

    I plan to file a complaint with the FTC immediately!
