DeYOUNG: They do not overdraft the checking account and take out the payday loan because they’ve done the calculus. That overdrafting on four or five checks at their bank is going to cost them more money than taking out the payday loan.
DeYOUNG: Borrowing money is like renting money. You have to use it for a few weeks. You could rent a car for two weeks, right? You get to use that car. Well, if you calculate the annual percentage rate on that car rental – that means that you divide the amount you pay on that car by the value of that automobile – you get similarly high rates. So this is not about interest. This is about short-term use of a product that’s been lent to you. This is just arithmetic.
Establish the correct entity that should rightfully receive payments on this debt. If you are going to settle on a letter stating the settlement terms. It has to state that on payment of $ x the debt will be deemed as “settled in full.” Then keep that payment proof for life. These C.A. resell your debt later to another C.A. and then it’s the same story collections all over again.

I’ve been getting these calls. They are also calling my job that I did not have at the time of this alleged loan. I do not want this to affect my job. They’ve called back to back and would not say who they are with and would not agree to send me a letter, saying they have sent several email. There is a call coming through right now while I’m writing this from 1243521256 and yes that’s all of the numbers … eh caller fraud ID as well. What is the name of Vaness? and gave a call back from 650-835 – ???? number. Omg! I am about to file a police report and open a FTC Case in my state.
I got a call from this woman today, from a lady who said she was from a carrier service. She was calling me to tell me that she would be delivering a letter for me to appear in court on Friday. I asked her for her contact number and what carrier service she worked for. She told me that it was not important, that she served documents all over the county. She would not tell me the county in which she worked in either. She then went on to call me to find out more.1855-282-2535. I then called this number and they told me they represented two friends who claimed that I took out 2 payday loans last year. I never took any payday loans. Ironically, these loans were supposed to have been deposited in an account that had been closed 2 months before the date they said I took them. I asked for the contact numbers for the compines and was told they did not have a number for them, I would have to Google them and get the contact number that way. How can someone be representing someone in legal matters and have no contact number for them? Anyway, I asked for documentation that I owed this money and proof that I really took out these loans and was told they did not have it, I would have to contact the loan companies to get that info. If these people are taking me to my local court they should not have this info?

Ask the collector for the name and address of the agency for which he or she works. Then ask him to send you written information about the debt. Any legitimate debt collection agency will do this because it is required under the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

Not having the money to pay a debt is not a crime. It sounds like you’re dealing with scammers. The advice I gave in the articles below to your situation. Start with step # 1 and insist they email your written statement of the debt that is required by federal law.

When the giant Indian technology-service firm Infosys announced last November that it would open a design and innovation hub in Providence, the company’s president said one of the key reasons he chose Rhode Island was its strong network of higher-education institutions: Brown University, the Rhode Island School of Design, and the Community College of Rhode Island.
I am curious as to what the credit reporting companies plan to do about reporting these animals do! I can not buy a house right now because of a “loan” that I did not take that is being reported on my credit! This has to stop. They can not just mess with people like this. I had to hire an attorney!
After reading everyone’s comments it sounds like I should not give in giving them money for a PDL I never received. The scary thing is what will happen if I do not ignore this. I mean is there a real legitimate way they can have any impact on my credit or SS # or place of employment?
Anyone who tells you you must pay in an hour or that you will be arrested is a scammer. A collector can not have you arrested, and certainly can not summon law enforcement to arrest you because you did not meet their deadlines. A legitimate collector would send you a written validation of the debt. Please do not pay. You can read more signs of scammer here: 9 Signs You Are Talking to Debt Collection Scammer

You do your best to ask as many questions as you can of the research and of the researchers themselves. You ask where the data comes from, whether it means really what they say it means, and you ask them to explain why they might be wrong, or compromised. You make the best judgment you can, and then you move forward and try to figure out how the research really matters. Because the whole idea of the research, is likely to help solve some big problem.
Your mother should be contacted both by phone and by postal mail. A collective agency that refuses to do that is not complying with federal law.

Had the same call as Jeannie. I originally got a call from MS. Gilmore and now MS Berry from 877-258-1188 stating that my payment did not go through and that they would be proceeding on garnishment. I feel this is a scam. The call from MS Berry came on on Fri afternoon 4-1 at 4:45 AM. PDLR is the name of the company they claim. I did call the number back this morning and the person who answered the phone call me for my phone numbmer and then told me that MS Gilmore and MS Berry do not come in before noon. She told me I wouold have to call back then. Do not most legit collections of agencies that give you a number and name to call at least have voice mail. I feel this is a SCAM and I hope it stops soon. Any ideas I can do in the future to stop these people? Please advise if you do
