I can not tell from what you are writing whether it’s a very aggressive debt collector, but remember the debt collectors must follow federal law (and often state laws) that prohibits harassment and false statements.
WERTH: It’s hard to say. Actually, we just do not know. But whatever their incentive might be, their FOIA applications have produced what looks like some pretty damning e-mails between CCRF – which, again, receives funding from payday lenders – and academic researchers who have written about payday lending.
I started doing research about the organization and I had checked the Better Business Bureau and had lots of complaints and rated with an “F”. I did not contact Check N Go about which company they sold the account to and it was not PDL so I’m wondering how they got my information. I had given PDL $ 25 just for them to stop calling me so much I wonder if I should have done that.
Do you believe them Maria ,. they will say anything and even break the law to do so. If it was actually a fraud investigator your local police or sheriffs department would be the person who called you to not have a random person telling you to get an attorney.

I received a phone call today from an “investigator” stating that there is an investigation on me that I have to give a verbal statement. I called the woman back and she gave me this talk about it’s because of a unpaid payday loan from like 2007. I told her it was not on my credit report and asked why. She replied because “the US federal government is holding your ssn and that it would not show up anyway because it was an open case” (the open case thing is false I know, just checked my credit report again, there’s open things on there ….)

You can request a written verification of the debt if they call again to help determine whether you are dealing with a debt collector or a scammer. You can also contact your state attorney general and monitor your credit reports for signs of identity theft.
So, the payday business model is not like pawn shop, where you surrender your valuable possessions to raise cash. To get a payday loan, you need to have a job and a bank account. According to Pew survey data, some 12 million Americans – roughly 1 in 20 adults – take out a payday loan in a given year. They tend to be relatively young and earn less than $ 40,000; they tend to not have a four-year college degree; and while the most common borrower is a white female, the rate of borrowing is the highest among the minorities.
If they call back, follow the instructions outlined in this article or the resource provided above. If the collector will not comply with your requests, then it may be a scam. It’s hard to say until you talk to them to see if the debt is legitimate. Whatever you do, do not let them intimidate you in paying without validating the debt. As a result of the comment on this thread, they use scare tactics and prey on consumers not knowing their rights and the laws when it comes to debt collections.
Im glad I read your post. I have been getting calls from people for payday loans that i have had outstanding. they are threatening to take me to court and everything, and i know according to the payday loan laws in illinois they cant do that. My question is this: I had already had two loans out (via front store), and was approved for 5 more online (after which I did not have any of the companies were licensed in illinois. the money to repay at the moment thats when they get rude and nasty with me they keep saying they will put a judgment on my report, etc. 855-216-1354 is one of the numbers i keep getting calls from. my caller id they come up 000 and i wait for them to leave a message I do not pay them anything but i wonder if they really do anything to me the companies according to illinois law should have contacted me to set up I did not want to go back, but now I’m getting these calls, something doesnt seem right

I have been arrested and jailed on felony charges. I asked for a company name and was told it was the Office of Financial Affairs and was given two numbers … .one that is listed for Nebraska and one for Ohio … ladies call themselves Inspector Stewart and Amy Strickland …… they would not tell me who the alleged lender is other than Direct Lending who is affiliated with cashnet USA, payday lending … ..they had my social number, last known work place and checking actor number as well as my mailing address … .they hung up on me once when I asked questions and then “Inspector Stewart” had to go to someone else when she could not answer my questions and then became rude and told me that I needed to shut up long enough for her to tell me what would happen to me if I don ‘ t settle today out of court … ..they are very convincing except for the fact that I have no loans with anyone like that …… i spoke to my bank to give them a head up
serve me papers. She lives in Chicago and I live in southern Illinois. I called to see what was going on just to find out it’s a bill I’ve already paid off. The person on the phone told me that my account was just sold to them and they hired a locator to find me to serve me papers. They did not want to serve me at work. I told her it was paid off in July and she said I had to get a “Pay in Full” letter from the collector and they would drop it. I called Asset Management and they are sending me a letter. Asset gave me the corporate number for The Cash Store, I called and was told it was fraud and to stop all contact with this company. I’m still going to send in my “pay in full” letter but if I get anything from BOR again I’m going to go after them for violations of the law. This is ridiculous. I keep good records of all my payments and debts (I’ve had many over the years), I know a lot of people do not. They would have just paid them.
I’ve been getting calls from strange numbers lately so I have not answered. On 10
An excellent experience through a harsh time in my life. The paralegals and Ms. Shank himself explained all details expertly and accommodated me the whole way. Friendly staff, fair fees. Definitely The attorney to head to for bankruptcy help in central Texas.
If you do not repay your loan, the payday lender or a debt collector can generally sue you to collect. If they win, or if you do not dispute the lawsuit or claim, the court will enter a order or judgment against you. The order or judgment will state the amount of money you owe. The lender or collector can then get a garnishment order against you.
Contact your state’s regulator or attorney general office for more information. You may also contact legal attorney or private attorney assistance for assistance. You can submit a complaint about payday loans with the CFPB online or by calling (855) 411-2372.
The same number has been harrassing my work place for the past two days. The breifly talked to him and told him that I would call him back after work hours. But no one answers. Now he’s talking to almost everyone here at my work claiming that they are cussing at him. I already told him to stop calling me work. That’s pissing me off, I do not know what else to do!

Last year, bike sharing took off in China, with thousands of bike-share companies quickly flooding city streets with millions of brightly colored rental bicycles. However, the rapid growth was largely outpaced immediate demand and overwhelmed Chinese cities, where infrastructure and regulations were not prepared to handle sudden flood of millions of shared bicycles. Riders would park bikes anywhere, or just abandon them, resulting in bicycles piling up and blocking already-crowded streets and pathways. As cities impounded derelict bikes by the thousands, they moved quickly to cap growth and regulate the industry. Big batteries of impounded, abandoned, and broken bicycles have become a familiar sight in many big cities. As many of the companies have been in the bigger and too early have begun to fold, their huge surplus of bicycles can be found collecting dust in large vacant lots. Bike sharing remains very popular in China, and will probably continue to grow, only at a more sustainable rate. Meanwhile, we are left with these images of speculation gone wild-the piles of debris left behind after the bubble bursts.
These payday loan collectors are using a new scared tactic now. They are saying I’m filing fraud charges with your county and you will be summoned to court for fraud. I know you can not threaten a person over the phone but these are the calls I’ve got back to back
You will want to monitor your credit carefully
Shulkin and Carson face the same problem: dubious use of taxpayer dollars in their duties as secretaries. They can console themselves knowing they are in good company. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has been caught in extravagant expenditures, too. Less heartening is the sixth example, Tom Price, who was unceremoniously forced out as secretary of health and human services in September 2017.
consumers, is going too far. Under the plan it is now considering, lenders would have to make sure that borrowers can repay their loans and cover other living expenses without extensive defaults or reborrowing. These actions would really seem to curtail the possibility of people falling into debt traps with payday lenders. But the industry argues that the rules would be put out of business. And while a self-serving howl of pain is precisely what you would expect from any industry under government fire, this appears, based on the business model, to be true-not only would the regulations eliminate the very loans from which the industry makes its money, but they would also introduce significant new underwriting costs on every loan.

For spring cleaning this year, President Trump is looking at his Cabinet. The Associated Press reported Monday that Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin is near to be removed. When Trump fired H.R. McMaster as a national-security adviser, that torpedoed a plan to dismiss McMaster, Shulkin, and Ben Carson, the secretary of housing and urban development, at once, according to Politico

As for the other instance, I do not know whether you were scammed or not, but you can certainly do some research to find out whether the collection agency you paid was legitimate. In some states, they must be registered and

DUBNER: Well, Christopher, that defense sounds, at least to me, like pretty weak sauce. I mean, the university writing center does not have as much vested interest in the outcome of my writing as an industry group does for an academic paper about that industry, right?
Worse yet, she says, borrowers have almost no choice but to roll over their loans again and again, which jacks up the fees. In fact, rollovers, Standaert says, are an important part of the industry’s business model.

I’m down with zero cash and applied for a payday loan now, I’m getting harassment calls from a phony call center (a double-wide trailer) deep in the heart of the Idyllwild Forest Reserves in California. They call and harass in a few dialects (Deep Indian, Middle Eastern, and Slavic … The phone number (951-468-0421) is listed as a lease from Sprint, and the thumbprint tracking that each call leaves leaves to that very location, Thanks to that phone’s GPS I had paid off the loan, Thank you, and now I’m still getting calls from ACS Legal Services. And then, If they persist, you can file harassment against the phone number and the person.
