Furthermore, according to DeYoung’s own research, because the payday-loan industry is extremely competitive, the market tends to drive fees down. And while payday lenders get trashed by government regulators and activists, payday customers, he says, seem to tell a different story.
Nona – There are a few options for trying to stop them but it’s not easy when you’re dealing with a scam. If they were legitimate collectors, and traceable – where they could be held accountable under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, consumers would recourse to sue them. However, with scams, it’s a little more difficult … but there are some options that may help – you can file a complaint with your local law enforcement, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and your state attorney general.
I know you’re panicked about this, but do not be. Social Security payments are generally safe from creditors. (If you have a federally guaranteed loan your Social Security funds may be at risk but even then you will be notified in the phone and not from the phone call out of the blue.)
DUBNER: OK, so this is interesting that a watchdog group that will not reveal its funding is going after an industry to try to influence academics that’s funding. So should we assume that CFA, the watchdog, has some kind of horse in the payday race? Do we just not know?
Hi !! Well I had been calling to my workplace from (716)218-2000 leaving me saying that they are a law firm firm QA and that I need to contact them immidiatly so I did not because I was at work but next day they call again and my boss let me take the call and they want me to pay $ 570.00 right away with a credit card so I said I do not have that money at the time but i’m welling to make arrangements to get this fix, so they didnt want no arrengments they want the whole amount or they will sue me for check fraud, so I got scare and I had a lot of financial problems and personal problems too and start getting ansiaty attack so that night I end it up on the hospital. So it’s a weekend and they call me again to my cell phone so that the caller Id had 0000000000 no number and I didnt answer so they leave a message that they will serve me on the 8th with the sherrif at my house or my work and take me to jail, I’m scare with this people I can go to jail I will lose my job I had my mother with surgery and cancer and she needs me to take her to drs. I have been able to help her get some money from her, and I’m helping her financially for her treatment so I’m sure to know what to do if someone can help me out and have some advice I will read some of others people experiences with these scam companies that it calm me down a little bit but i cannt immagine seeing my mom saw the police taking me she will be very scare and I dont want to think how she is going to get. This is very bad people scaring people like that is no reason why they have to do this, I just ask God to forgive them and bless them so they stop doing these to the people .. God bless all !!!
Funny thing is, they have a website but anyone can get a website these days. They are also listed in the BBB website with a C- rating. C- because of complaints. Their website domain is via GoDaddy. Now thats classy.
Mind you, no one ever asked me for updated information or my address … their gums just continued to flap about how I was going to be served a crime sum at an address I have not lived at for 8 years.
I got scammed. I am inthe process of settling the loan, but getting calls from people claiming to state state attorneys and one claiming to be an investigator or a detective and want me to settle out of court and make payment to him. He claims I will be arested and put in jail.
DEYOUNG: This is why price caps are a bad idea. Because if the solution was implemented as I suggest and, in fact, payday lenders lost some of their most profitable customers – because now we’re not getting that fee the 6th and 7th time from them – then the price would have to go up. And we would not let the market determine whether or not at that high price we still have the need to use the product.

ok heres how this works i did it for about a few years ago first off all the debt is real debt. Ok now heres where the rest becomes illegal to speak or at least walk that thin line in my eyes. its real debt that the people owed but for these companies by the time they got it its OVER the 7 year statute of limitations for collections so they hit hard and fast before you catch on. now when you call john or mary lets say they have professional closers who guess what are now john or mary each one of us gets our list of people going to call and get my company buys by the bAZILLION from the credit card companies medical collection agencies etc for pennies the month i worked there they had a million $$$ month so theres a lot of uninformed people out there. anyways we get their debt info then credit report etc and we search them before we call had my own code to run backgrounds reverse phone etc that way we sound legit we then spoof your sheriff or court house number threaten jail and arrest at your work etc unless you call john or mary since we are all either john or mary they never know for pay for us we had a number like john 1 john 2 or mary 1 mary 2 etc. i can go on and on the gist lol my conscience got the best of me i had to quit p.s. if this happens again just laugh at them and ask them what time breakfast you need a vacation and club med was booked solid so jail will do lol theyll move to the next victim they just keep hounding and bullying if you look weak and they think youll pay. good luck
Be aware that some payday lenders have threatened garnishment in order to get borrowers to pay, even though they do not have a court order or judgment. If that should happen, you may want to seek legal assistance.
Hello I hope someone can help me please. I received A call from a guy saying he’s from Empire Mediation & Arbitration Service LLC. That they are taking me to court for defaulting on a payday loan with check n go. That I’m going to face a judge and there’s asking 2815 but if I pay today they’re willing to settle for 412.50. Originally my loan was 255.00. witch I got in 2008. I told them to send me a validation debut letter he said I can email you a settlement letter that they supposedly sent me a while ago. They had my old address But I never got anything because my mom lives there. So there is a saying that I’m going to get served with court papers and I have to face a judge also they want 2,815.00 for fees. Does this sound right please help. I called check n go they said they sold my case in 2009 and they have nothing to do with my case no more and that they are not suing me But they do not know who else has my case since the company they sell it too went out of business. Please help I must pay the 412.50. I do not work or have the money sine I take acre of my daughter who had cancer. Thank you
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.
The Illinois Attorney General’s Office says the bogus debt collectors have heard about using various names, including: Morgan & Associates, Federal Bureau of Investigators, DNR Recovery, DNI Recovery, Legal Accounts Association, Department of Law and Enforcement, CashNet USA , American Legal Services, Quick Cash, and ACS. If you hear from any of these companies, be sure to report them immediately to your state Attorney General’s office and the Federal Trade Commission
Crystal – It could be a scam or it could be a legitimate collection. They being detective sound suspect but to know for sure, you’ll need more information from them. For step-by-step instructions on how to deal with a collector when they call, this resource can help:
Creditors can not generally garnish your salary unless they take you to court and get a judgment first. Even then, there are restrictions on how much be garnished. I’m not sure of all the circumstances of your situation, but remember, a debt collector is required under the federal law to send you a written notice of the debt, and you have the right to request the verification of the debt if you dispute it. Any collector that will not abide by federal law is either a scam or can be sued for breaking the law.
scammers start telling you you’re going to be arrested and they’re going to garnish your salary THAT’S BULLS # $ T. That requires a court order and by law you are notified of the court date in writing so you have a chance to show up. No matter how much they threaten you NEVER give them your personal information, bank account numbers, social security anything. They’re on a fishing trip and the more info you give them, the easier it is to clean you out.Notify your family, friends and especially your boss that you are being scamed.Then if the scammers call them they will not be caught off guard.Let a stop to these theives, all debt collection is regulated by Federal Law. Get informed. Know what the Statute of Limitations is in your state. Do not answer the phone and give these scammers an invitation to make your life miserable.
In a typical handgun injury, which I diagnose almost daily, leaf bullet in laceration through an organ such as the liver. To a radiologist, it appears as a linear, thin, gray bullet track through the organ. There may be bleeding and some bullet fragments.
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. .
• Do not let one of these companies scare you into making payments if you’re not sure you owe the debt. In most cases, collectors must first take you to court and get a judgment before they can go after your pay or property. (If you live in Minnesota, however, read this warning.)
I’ve been contacted back to someone I’ve been in touch with you and I’ve been in touch with you. The time if the loan and now I have only part time job so she said either I pay four hundred dollars or I will go to jail. Someone please help me is this real.
Do not hide from bad news. Do not ignore a charge or summary notice from court or the lender, or any court proceedings against you. If you ignore a case, you may lose the opportunity to fight a wage or bank garnishment.
Today, the same lady called & left another message, said the same crap including this is her last attempt, blah, blah, blah but this time left a different number 1-855-809-6119. Again, ended his message with “you have been notified”.
actually be profitable, deliver the product. Now that’s, that’s not the only plank in the CFPB’s platform. They advocate limiting rollovers and cooling-off periods and the research does not indicate that in states where rollovers are limited, payday lenders have got around them by paying the loan off by refinancing. Just start a separate loan with a separate loan number, evading the regulation. Of course that’s a rule that was poorly written, if the payday lenders can evade it that easily.
By the way, you can not be arrested just because you can not afford to pay a debt. (Warning, however, there are cases where consumers are jailed in connection with debts because they failed to appear in court after a summary was issued.)

For a while now, we’ve been getting complaints from Credit.com readers about fake payday loan debt collectors. I’m not surprised when I read the announcement this week by Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan warns Illinois residents to “be on the alert for scam artists posing as collectors of payday loan debt. The scammers call consumers and threaten them with legal action unless the victims authorize payments from their bank accounts. “Her office has received many complaints.
said that if I agree to make three payments to settle the debt they would not take me to court. I agreed and made the first two payment, now I have a single payment and I do not have the money until next time I get paid which is a week from the due date. I tried to call the company that is taking the money out of my account to see if they would work with me and take the money out when i have it but i have to leave a message due to “high call volume” but never recieved a call back. My question is they can still take me to court and what’s the hood of them doing this?
I got a call today from some lady named ms jones nichole
Perhaps a solution of sorts-something that is better, but not perfect-could come from more modest reforms to the payday-lending industry, rather than trying to transform it. There are some evidence that smart regulation can improve the business for both lenders and consumers. In 2010, Colorado revised its payday-lending industry by reducing the permissible fees, extending the minimum term of a loan to six months, and requiring that a loan be repayable over time, instead of coming due all at once. Pew reports that half of the payday stores in Colorado are closed, but now everyday payday borrowers are paying 42% less in fees and defaulting less frequently, with no reduction in access to credit. “There’s been a debate for 20 years about whether to allow payday lending or not,” says Pew’s Alex Horowitz. “Colorado shows it can be much, better.”
