USA Cash Advance / Payday Loan/Money Owed

1 United States Review updated:

While at work today I received a call at work, I was told it was regarding a legal matter. I asked what the legal matter was about and the man on the phone (had a very thick Indian accent) said he didn't have that information, but he could transfer me to the lawyer in charge of the collection. He then transferred me (which sounded more like him handing a phone to someone beside him) to the lawyer, stupidly I didn't ask for his name, but I did ask what firm he was with and he quickly went into the collection matter not answering my question. He said the collection was from a payday loan I had taken out back in January 2008 in the amount of $530 from USA Cash Advance that I had failed to pay for. He then informed me that I was in the process of being sued unless I paid the amount in full. I again informed him I was at work and that I would call him back later. After hanging up I was a bit concerned because he knew my name, address, social security number, work number, work address, as well as many personal details that made me think this was legit. I decided to research the company just to make sure I didn't have one out I didn't remember about, but googled the payday loan company the top search was Complaint Board.com and 19 pages worth of the same scam happening to me!! Later this evening I received a call, it was from the same company. The man with the thick Indian accent was very irate, he asked me why I hadn't called him back, and would NOT let me get one word in, so I hung up on him. Within 5 minutes he called me back, this time he was on a wild tangent, after a very heated conversation he then told me " You will lose your job tomorrow!!" and hung up on me. After hearing that I called my local sheriff's office and informed them of the situation, that way I would have something on file if the company calls and starts harassing my work. I am so grateful for site. The best advice I received from the local Sheriff is, once you receive a call from this company if your phone has the option send them straight to voicemail. It is a SCAM!!

    Thanks for posting it. I almost fell for it myself. They wanted me to put $200 on a MoneyPak card and then call them with the number as this was just to show good faith so they would give me a loan. They had my bank acct numberf and bank, routing number because I did apply at another location and then they called. Let my bank know and did not get the card and put money on it thanks to this posting.

    I looked for a cash loan and was told by USA Cash Advance that I qualified for a $2500 loan and it was a $250 processing fee. They called me back in approximately 30 minutes and said that the loan was now for $5000 which suited my purposes better but there was yet another $250 processing fee. The next day the government shut down and they again contacted me stating the insurance company needed $250. Now the insurance company needs another $250. I stopped paying them after the 3rd $250 and informed them I would be doing everything in my power to retrieve my money as well as reporting them to the better business bureau.

    Don't be scared. Google Indian debt collection scam.
    These people are calling from India; forget the Nigerians, these are the new scammers on the block. If you have ever applied for a payday loan that's how they get you personal info. They are out to get you if you slip. They don't care because they are beyond the feds reach. Thus, you are left to fend for yourself. There's nothing they can do-they cannot take arrest nor you to court, etc. They are physically in India and running a scam. If they smell fear and intimidation on your part they will keep calling until they get your $$$. To banish them good you either have to be a jerk, insult insult talk over them or simply blow a loud sports air horn into the phone. They will re-think to call you back.

    I have received several calls from 917-775-5246. Today and yesterday I was threatened with being arrested and charged for something I have not done. This man has harrassed and threatened my livelihood for no reason. The scariest part is he knew ALL of my personal information!!!
