I received a call from [redacted] indicating that she had an order to complete about the charges for distribution of fraudulant text related to the social security number and provided she would be serving these documents to me at my home address. address] today and if service could not be made they would contact my employer and inform them that service would take place at their premises. She said if I had any questions or wanted to set an alternative service to contact the complainant’s attorney at [redacted]. I work at an attorney’s office so I brought this to the attention of an attorney in our office. He called the number, and identified himself as my attorney. The gentleman was very rude and said he could not discuss it with him without a letter of recommendation and that when I received the papers I could bring them to the attorney to review. When he said I was present and would like to ask what was about he still refused to give any information and again said to wait for the papers to be served. My attorney asked him if he was familiar with the fair debt practice act and the gentleman said it was not about a debt. I later called him back if he could please let me know what was all about and he again refused because he says I have a counsel, though he previously refused to tell my attorney any information because there was no letter of representation. The man was very rude and hung up on me. I called back and again asked to please be given any information about the issue, he said he could give me information but was choosing not to and again hung up on me. I called back and said it was a policy to not discuss the matter if I am represented by the counsel. I asked if their company [redacted] was the one suing me or someone else and he said it was them. I asked if he could please at least tell me what court was being filed in. After a very exasperated sigh and some computer typing, he said it was being filed in [county I lived in 8 years ago] through the office of [provided the name of prosecuting attorney for that office]. I then called that prosecuting attorney’s office and let them know about the call and asked if they had any cases with my name, which they did not have and suggested that maybe it was a civil case. I then called the circuit clerk’s office and again told them the situation and asked if anything had been filed with my name and they had nothing. After bringing this information back to my attorney he said it was very likely to scam and to inform the Attorney General’s office. I called and gave the Attorney General’s office all the information and was again told that it was very likely a scam. I suppose we will see if I have anything to do in the next few days …
I was just on creditkarma last night and woke up to a voicemail from someone telling me to call them back or it would result in a warrant for my arrest. They told me I had 1400 and they would settle for 700 they had my personal info including ss #. They said I had till 1pm this same day to pay. I called the courts in Illinois and they did not know anything about it. I called the company back and they were aggressive and yelled saying they were submitting it early now do not call us ever again. Now you will get arrested by cook county Illinois but I’m a Wisconsin resident.
I did not give her my new address. I know the debt is not mine and sound bogus. As my bank representative pointed out it, if the debt was real I would have noticed either the money being withdrawn or would have seen a bunch overdrawn transactions. The Account was active until last week when I closed it. So he said the only way they do not get paid is if you withdraw all your money or you close the account the loan is linked to. So that’s what’s setting off some red flags that this may be scam.
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
I received a call about a payday loan that I took out and never paid back. This guy was real nasty told me that I need to quit my job cuz they dont pay that much. Told me that if I dont pay thatvi can be charged with fraud asked for debit card number. Thankfully I had ten dollars less than the agreed amount in my checking n I have a block for overdraft fees. After this I called an attorney office and they said it sounds like a scam. Thing was that I owe a payday loan place and this guy had my name and social security number so I thought it was legit. I have since ordered a new debit card and i’ll talk to my bank about changing my checking acount number or something. I dont want these guys to get into my bank account number. He theartened to garnish my salary told me that if I go to court I could pay up to $ 2000 instead of the small amount that I really owe. Said he can come up to my work and serve me with a poster. I told him that I could only pay $ 50 now and then $ 50 a week and he said he needs 150 now and 100 a week. I do not see how anyone can deny a payment that makes me feel even more scam. U can pay hospital bills at a day and they’re not doing so why this would be any different. I do not pay anything until I get a short date and then I will go to court then I will pay. Until then oh Well I just got a job after being out of work for 4 months I have a lot of important things to worry about
then the guy wanted to know why i took the advance out in the first place and why i have not paid on it. he said I was going to get charged with check fraud from across state lines since the company is out of state and when they tried to retrieve the money from my account the money was not there.
I have suppose to be a Payday Loan Recovery Group with the phone number 1 877 258 1188 saying that Net Loan USA has sent my name to them for a payment I know nothing about and they are going to garnish my check, I just do not know what to do They have too much information on me and I do not know what they are able to do, I wonder how they got my information. I have someone calling me they are from Allegal Dept. ACS. Asking for money. I looked them up and they are a ripoff.The number they call from is 813 262 0349.
her company would then move forward in garnishing my salary. If I accepted the settlement offer they would contact American Cash Advance and I would receive a paid in full letter from them. I have not received any such documentation. When I called Ms. Gilbert today to let her know I did not receive the pay in full letter from the original creditor she told me that there was nothing she could do – she did her job and that’s all she had to do and was not interested in helping me. I contacted her supervisor, Ms. Martinez (ext.260) and she told me she would look in the matter for me and return my call. I paid the amount that I was offered in the settlement because I did not want my employer to be contacted – even though I suspected this was a scam.
someone named nicole woods – who’s leaving a number of – 888-891-4526 but you’re cant to her. she is very rude. and calls my job and tell anyone who answers the phonet that I’m going to be arrested and she is going to serve some papers on me. I asked the mail to the documents. claim they cant

Back when he was a private businessman, Trump learned how to use law as a weapon. The lesson he took from that is that if your pockets are deep enough – and your conscience dull enough – it does not matter that you are wrong. The other party will be broken before you will lose.
thank you Geri this makes my mind at ease even though deep down inside i thought i was right .. i know i owe them the money .. thank you so much i wish other ppl would research this so they do not get scamed. .
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.
told me that this has already been passed that and my salary would be garnished. Stating “they have already contacted your employer and we have their tax identification number.” When asked about the “debt” they kept referring to not showing up on my credit report; I was told that it was on there and she was looking at it right now. Once I said that I was monitoring my credit, she flipped
My husband and I filed bankruptcy due to unforeseen circumstances and we had an outstanding payday loan. My attorney explained to us that a payday loan is treated as an unsecured debt and would file the papers and there was no need to worry about this because it would be included in the bankruptcy as unsecured. Needless to say I got a very dangerous call from a company called US Capital Management (855) 596-0411. They said they represented MYMONEYCHEST.com and they would see us in court for a balance. I asked the woman to contact my attorney and they said they could not because they are just the middle man in this. I told her if there is a balance and we are currently in a bankruptcy, there should be no reason they could not reach out to our attorney. I called my attorney and he said to have them call him. They will not! They told me that they were going to serve me papers at my job. Is this possible? Can they do that? I can not get them to give me any paperwork about this balance owed.
I recently got a call from someone from a company called Alliance. They called my work number. When I called them back the man said that if I did not pay the loan back they would get me for fraud and breach of contract. I gave them my debit card information. I then did some research. I could not find the company’s information online and the company they said I owed number was disconnected. I cancelled my card and then call Alliance back and asked for a validation letter. The man said they were a paperless company and they could only send Emails. I told him I wanted in writing. Of course he refused and hung up. I got a call from the next day from another guy stating that the card was declined and I needed to handle it right now. I told him not without the letter I asked for. So I hung up. The next day I got a call from a lady stating that this was my final warning and I needed to contact them immediately. I never received the letter or Email and I still can not locate this company by the address they gave me, name or phone number. I was also contacted by another company named D 2 management. They said the same thing that I owed for a pay day loan. The lady identified himself as an officer. I have read online about this company and everyone is saying they are a scam. I have contacted the BBB and consumer affairs so far. I really want to know if these two companies are really scam companies. Please Help!
Creditors are required to provide written verification of a debt within five days of contacting you. They also do not make threats they do not intend to keep – like filing charges. You can find more about your debt collection here:
Maybe that’s about as good as it gets on the fringe. Outrage is easy, and outrage is warranted-but maybe payday lenders should not be its main target. The problem is not just that people who desperately need a $ 350 loan can not get it at a affordable rate, but that a growing number of people need that loan in the first place.
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!
I too have been getting these calls as of late. I took out a payday loan from Money and More back in 2008 and did it online for $ 300. I have since paid the loan back, but am now getting these calls as well. They are coming from multiple numbers in different states. The numbers I have are 631-247-9920, as well as the 716-299-0417 numbers and 757-275-8578. They are obviously using some system to be able to call from other numbers. I usually do not answer and call the numbers back to find out who they are and I go straight through a switchboard to an operator who refuses to tell me who they are or what they are calling from. They claim that there are “lots of companies in the building” and that they do not work for any particular one. Anyway
The CFPB does not have the authority to limit interest rates. Congress does. So what the CFPB is asking for is that payday lenders either thoroughly evaluate the borrower’s financial profile or limit the number of rollovers for a loan, and offer easy refund terms. Payday lenders say even these regulations may just be put out of business – and they may be right. The CFPB estimates that the
Now that I’ve done a little research, I know that “Anthony Davis” who claims to be an attorney is a scam. See, I’m a legal assistant and have been in collections before and know the law. When this man told me that he would contact my employer to pay my bill, I said, “You have to take me to court, get a judgment and then garnish my salary” To this there was no response. Mr. Davis also told me that I would be “arrested” if I did not pay this debt. He calls incessantly: to my job and my cell phone. Thanks goodness he does not have my home phone number. Then I asked, “To whom do I have this debt?” He replies, “The company I represent owns many, many companies such as Cash Net USA, Speedy Cash. . “However, he did not tell me to whom I owe the debt and the amount of the debt. At first I was scared because I have defaulted on PDLs in the past, but ALL collection practices are governed by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (Federal Trade Commission): http:
remember they are sitting in a boiler room somewhere – maybe not in the US – making false threats. If you need to, call your phone company and find out how to put your phone call on your phone. Or get a google voice number and set it up so that only calls from people you know go through.
Beth – I
about a year ago very threatening and I initially set up a payment. When I found all the scam info online I have not got that account. I honestly do not remember if I had a payday loan default I do not remember having one. They called again but the guy said he was a fraud investigator for the commonwealth of pa and I would be brought up on all of these bogus sounding charges of fraud bad checks etc from a loan probably from 2008. He also knew I have a misdemeanor record and brought it up to me which is what scared me. When I said I know this is a scam he got furious said he would love to see me get prosecuted. I just said anything and hung up. Googled the phone number he left on vm was 8558870097 and it def seems like a scam. Latest loans from my research are illegal in and even if I did have said the default loan which I do not believe I did the statute of limitations on the debt on the 4 years fraud 2 years. I obviously realize the only fraud is these people but I still can not help but worry about this.

Now, however, the storefront-payday-lending industry is embattled. In 2006, after the outcropping of payday lenders near military bases, Congress passed a law capping at 36 percent the annualized rate that lenders could charge members of the military. In response to pressure from consumer advocates, many states have begun trying to reinforce the industry, through either regulation or outright banners. Lenders have excelled at finding loopholes in these regulations. However, according to Pew, the number of states in which payday lenders operated has fallen from a peak of 44 in 2004 to 36 this year. Nationwide, according to the Center for Financial Services Innovation, “single-payment credit” -so named because the amount of borrowed is due in one lump sum-barely has grown from 2012 to 2014.
ERVIN BANKS: I do not see anything wrong with them. I had some back bills I had to pay off. So it did not take me too long to pay it back – about three months, something like that. They are beautiful people.
I got a call from advanced capitol solutions for a defaulted loan i had in 2008 from another company. i googled their number 877-845-5988 and got allot of fraud comments and i cant verify they bought the debt from e corp. I send them an email to send me evidence that my attorney can try to verify. they said they can come after me for check fraud, which fake collectors always do to scare you out of some money. have not given them any acct info and now do you know what they know, anybody know of this company history?
I did not have any phone calls but my previous room was visited at home by a man named Lewis claiming he had a delivery for me and that he is a server server! She has been to her home several times and she has finally told her to stop her harrassing her as well. He left a fake look business card in which he wrote in his name and tel. # 425-223-8367. I have not called him to verify anything yet. Any suggestions how to handle or proceed with this? Any help is appreciated!

But if the only explanation for high rates were that lenders can, so they do, you would expect to see an industry awash in profits. It is not, especially today. Ernst & Young released a study, commissioned by the Financial Service Centers of America, to find that the ‘average profit margin before tax and interest was less than 10 percent. (For the sake of comparison, over the past five quarters, the consumer-financial-services industry has averaged a pre-profit profit rate of more than 30 percent, according to CSIMarket, a provider of financial information.) A perusal of those financial statements that are public confirms a simple fact: As payday lending exploded, the economics of the business worsened-and are today no better than middling. The Community Financial Services Association argues that at 36 percent rate cap, the one in place for members of the military, is a death knell because payday lenders can not make money at that rate, and this seems to be correct. In states that their rates are at 36% per year or lower, the payday lenders vanish. In New York, which caps payday

I took a loan from Money and More in July 2008 and paid the loan back in Aug of 2008 with an electronic with drawl; by Money and More. I had the bank send me my bank records showing both of these trans shares however I was told that unless I had a letter from Money and More that this had been paid my bank records are useless. I have had many payday loans over the years and have never received a full payment from any of them but have always been able to contact them online to check my history can not do this with money and more and the only phone number I can find is not inserving 951-922-6286 who is the scammer ?????. The calls do not come every day they are about 1 or 2 weeks apart. guess I’ll just have to wait and see if they are doing papers on me they know a lot of my personal information as told them I would not send them my bank statements she then recited my bank account number from the account I had at that time has since changed accounts. I have asked for things in writing and have to recieve anything.
any other information. The payday borrower then writes a check – and this is the key part of the technology – the payday borrower then writes a check for the amount of the loan and postdates it by two weeks. And this becomes the collateral for the loan. So payday will not pay the loan in two weeks, the payday lender then deposits the check.
I’ve been contacted by 3 different companies. First one was Goodman and Stern, who was Kauffman and Associates, and as of today was contacted by Lohchner Gates and Associates. All of them threaten jail time. After reading this article, I was able to receive the money from goodman and stern through my bank. I just wish I had found this before
