Payday Loan to employee

I am the Controller of a rural hospital in South Texas. We continue to get harassing calls from US Fast Cash...

Threatening to put in Jail

I first took out a loan with them (USFASTCASH) in August 2012 I believe, I took out the loan and paid it off. I then a few weeks later again got into a financial bind and I took out another loan with them but I was unable to pay them back and they debited my account with no money in there because of having to pay bills and they continued to do so until my bank closed the account due to being overdrawn around $300 dollars. Fast Forward to about 2 weeks ago. I got a call from an Arbitrator Cruz who said she she was going to take out criminal charges on me for Bad Checks and for Intent to Defraud a financial institution and it scared me and I told her I didn't have any money to pay her back because of financial problem for me and my family. I asked her what was the name of her company exactly, she said that she was calling because I had a payday loan with USFASTCASH and she said I would see her company name when I got papers served on me from the sheriff. She threatened both civil charges and Criminal Felony Charges ( Bad Checks and Intent to defraud a financial institution). I then got some advice on this from a lawyer as I feared going to jail and I learned that this couldnt be an Arbitrator, but a debt collector and that they violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. So I called them back and got a voicemail and left several messages saying basically that were in violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and to please verify the debt by sending it to my address on their paperwork and I told them I handle all things by mail and not over the phone. Then today, 4/2/14 I got another call by another Arbitrator( (Davis) who said we had spoke about this before and was I going to settle the case and I said they had violated the FDCPA again when they told me they were going to pursue me on Criminal charges and she said she didn't care she was going to file the charges and that it was a Criminal Matter for bad checks. I asked her how that was because I didn't write any bad checks and she said yes I did the electronic checks. She said I will see you in court and told me to get off her phone cause she didn't care if it was a violation of FDCPA that she was not a collector. I still told her it was a violation and to not contact the phone again and to only contact me by mail. She said get off her phone and again she will see me in court. She also called my mother's phone and when she told them not to call her anymore that she doesn't see me often, they said I am just trying to keep your DAMN son out of jail and then hung up. These people need to be prosecuted

Calling with threats of going to jail

My husband and I took out a payday loan with us fast cash. I was paying on time until I lost my job and fell behind in payments. I tried to work out a payment plan but they keep withdrawling money from my checking account. Soon after we started the bankrucpty process. I had to put my checking account on the bankrupcty as well as us fast cash. I started to get phone call from forgieners saying they were police men and they were going to come and arrest my husband. After speaking with my lawyer I was told it was a scam and the next time to tell them we are claiming bankrucpty and it should stop. Well it is a month later and I am still getting calls but now they are saying they are lawyers. I told them it is against the law to keep calling. I am getting all these call from a 00 number and if I dont answere the phone I have no way to call back. I also contacted us fast cash with no response. This company uses threats to get paid. Thank you.

Do not pay this company anything! I received a phone call this morning from a man with a heavy indian accent, he said his name was officer justin williams...(not mohomed) he said i was being brought up of fraud, deseption, and check fraud. He then went on to tell me that i would be takin to court because i owe 5000. Then told me we could settle outside of court for $551. I asked his badge number and department he is with and he refused to provide either. I then ask for proper documentation of the loan, when the loan was takin, how much the loan was for, and for documentation that i approved a loan.(i have never recieved a loan in my life) He said that he was not allowed to provid me with any of the documentation i asked for. I hung up and call the orange county fraud department, whom very quickly told me this company is not real, that i had nothing to worry about, and if they called again to imform them this is harrasesment and to report it right away... Well, they called again and i let them have it and low and behold he didnt have ### to say now. He said i didnt know what i was talking about and hung up.. DO NOT BE A VICTIM TO THIS FAKE COMPANY!!! CALL YOUR LOCAL SHERIFFS OFFICE NOW!

    I just recieved the very same call from a Peter Williams (yeah right- he could barely speak English) saying I too owed US Cash Loans and that they were filing a "Federal" Case in my "County" Court (dumb-### blew their cover right then!) unless I paid them. I hung up. Googled the number 708-593-4738 and pulled up this site and numerous other complaints regarding this whack-fraudulent scam.

SCAM/FRAUD

We got approved of a loan of $300 and was suppose to pay only $390 back total. To date they have taken over $900 something out of my account. I have just put in a dispute to them and did a stop pay and blocked the company. This company is a complete scam and is ripping everyone off. DO NOT GET A LOAN WITH USFASTCASH what so ever. USFASTCASH is also previously known as Ameriloan. Who knows how many more names they have had. Closing your account is the only way you will get them to stop charging your account. They will charge your account under different names in order to get more money. Putting stop payments will not work with them. They are illegal company that scams everyone. BEWARE of USFASTCASH!

Fraud

I received a call from a guy saying that I received a payday loan from them in October of 2008 and that I owed them $300.00 or they were going to sue me for $4000.00. The guy quoted my name, bank name, ss# and the name of two of my relatives. He even called my old boss in an attempt to reach me. He called me several other times when I told him that I was not going to pay him and that I did not know what he was talking about or how he even got my information. The number that he gave me to call was [protected].

US Fast Cash

I took out a loan for $400, and was supposed to repay in full $600, and they were supposed to take out $120...

Unauthorized charges

I had paid down my united cash loans account to just under $100, and my USFastCash loan (didn't know they were the same company) was nearing $100. Both companies debited my account in one week, for a total of 8 seperate transactions, resulting in three overdrafts to my account (which my bank promptly added NSF fees to) and when I told them to stop charging me, they called my answering machine (which is public domain) and discussed my financial information and the fact that they could keep charging me as much as they wanted whenever they wanted (a violation of Fair Debt Collections Act), they called my employer and harassed me at work for three days after I told them to stop calling (a violation of Fair Debt Collections Act), and refused to give out a mailing address to resolve the issue through money orders/paygram.

My balance on both accounts in one week tripled, so instead of being rid of these people now, I have three times the original loan amount to deal with. They charge my account every two days now, which naturally, since my account is overdrawn, is only resulting in more fees, more overdrafts, and my paycheck wont cover the overdrafts! So I reported them to the Florida Attorney General, and also plan to tell my bank to block all future ACH transactions from them. I will have to pay $37 on each account to block them for six months, but it will be worth it.

took money out of tmy account, I did not even have a loan through them

Usfastcash has been taking money out of my account, even after I told them i don't have a loan with them. They told me that they had all me information and they had been sending me emails to let me know. I told them I have not had one email sent to my account from them, and I check my email everyday. I tried tallking to a manager and he was so sarcastic, i got no where with him. I called my bank and i let them know what happened. On a $300 dollar loan that I supposly took out, they had taken a totall of $500 dollars. My bank reimbursed my money back and put a freeze on my account so they could not take out anymore money. I filed a police report against the company. well, two weeks later usfastcash takes out $825 from my account. I am still trying to get resolution. I have been trying to let this company know, to take there $300 dollars back that I never ask for, nor signed any paper work, nor did they call my job to do a verification. Please help, this is turning into a night mare. they will not stop debting my account and I did a web search and there are alot of people complaining about the same problem i have. They keep taking money and will not stop.

    You need to turn this company in to your State Attorney Generals Office. Ther has been a scam going on with forigen speaking people saying they are Criminal Montoring Division and they say you owe a payday loan you don't actually owe. They are crooks. The numbers they use are 714-400-0539 plus many others.

    almost scammed many times Jul 22, 2011

    I've taken out a few loans over the last 12 months with US Fast Cash and the interest is extremely high. The company is a payday loan company that charges crazy interest eg. $400 loan + $180 in interest and it's due in 2 weeks from the day you got the loan. I've received loans from them and paid the interest. The key thing is that if you don't notify them, via the email they send to you (which always end up in my junkbox and I have to put it in my inbox), that you want to pay off your loan in full then they do what they call an extension. This means they will only take out an amount that is equal to the interest. It's an "extension fee" to extend the loan another two weeks. Just before the two weeks comes up you will get another email asking if you want to extend the loan or pay it off in full which would be the $400 + $180. You must respond saying you want to pay it off or they will keep doing an extension. It's in the small print in your loan documents when you get approved. In the first writers comments the first writer may have had someone use their identity to take out a loan. US Fastcash would have needed your name, social and bank account info...could someone you know have gotten that info? Also, I first hear of US Fastcash through Moneymutual.com...a site advertised by Montel Williams the former talk show host. I applied there. Moneymutual is just a company that searches for other loan companies for you. They don't actually take out the loan. I had maybe 10 to 20 companies contact me. They all asked me to go on-line and reconfirm my info. I did this with a few companies including US Fastcash. In the end it tTurns out that one of the companies was a fake company set up by scammers that sound indian/pakistani. I think the company was EasyMoney or somethng like that. They were the only website that I tried and I repeatedly entered my info and kept getting error messages. Those folks were indian sounding. The legit companies were American Sounding. A few days after I put my info on Moneymutual and gave my details out to that website...the calls started coming saying that I owe money. They've never stopped calling over the past 12 months and even have gone as far as having me paged at work several times a day threatening to arrest me etc. These people are not USFastCash and don't claim to be. They say the name is "John Smith" or something similar and they are calling from the FBI or "The Law Firm"...I caught on to their game rather quickly and just hang up on them. Legally they can't just take money out of your account (these scammers) unless you give them info. They will ask permission to debit the money out of your account so just hang up. There's nothing the authorities can do about it. Yes the calls are annoying the heck out of me as they've called me as late at 2AM. When they know they are annoying you they call more often. Since I've started throwing racist slurs etc. at them about their culture (which I know is morally wrong) they call now about once every 3 weeks. I also just hang up on them mid-sentence. When I used to get upset and curse at them and not laugh at them they would repeatedly call my direct line at work and then have me paged when I hung up. Luckily my office had been hit the year before so I didn't get into trouble for it. Sorry for the book...I figured this would give you some insight.
