I got a call last week for my husband from 215-987-5464 said his name was Officer John William gave me some Badge #. Said my husband had a complaint against him for Payday Advance Loan from 2011 and the charges were 849.25 with the original loan amt and intest charges and court charges and said he was fixing to issue a warrant for him if we did not pay that amount. I told him I did not have that kinda of money that I would have to set up something on a pmt. I told him I was already in the wrong at the bank but I had overdraft so I could pay the 100.00 today but he said
Four weeks later, he got even worse, fighting fever, night sweats, and disorientation, as his friend and fellow activist Zackie Achmat recounted later in a newspaper article. It was only then that Louw finally went in for an HIV test. He was positive.
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.
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!
I got a call from some lady her name was emily clark stating that she was an investigator and that i owed ab payday loan from back on 2010 she was rude and treated me to report to my county so I can be arrested for check fraud to the payday finance intrance i fraked out because the time I was getting those kind of loans so I agreed to pay them when I asked about my options to pay they said that i owed them a total of 950 usd but it will settle for 600 or 3 payments of 300 when I took my option that said I had an hour to pay them to a cvs or waltmart and get a money graham and send it to the Company It really sounded fishy so I gave them excuses to not be I can not tell you what they’re doing.
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
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.
What exactly did your son receive in the mail? It sounds like if your advice is wise. It’s also a good idea for your son to check his credit reports to see if there are any accounts he does not recognize and to dispute any errors. Here are a couple of resources that may be useful:
The fact that they have your information means absolutely nothing. That information is often bought and sold. Sounds like it is very likely a scam. Again, insist on written confirmation (by mail) as required by law. If they do not send it then you have confirmed what you’re dealing with.
with a group of attorneys called “Horizon Legal Group”. The phone number they gave is 888-257-3157
I just had my first run with one of these “companies.” I immediately knew that it was gibberish but decided to play along. They were immediately taken by the fact I have a British accent but continue their charade. I initially spoke with a woman and the number was 0000. Typically I do not pick up these strange numbers as I assume it’s some sort of scam but I had a itch. She picked up said something and immediately handed the phone over to another counterpart. He of course made claims to a loan I took out in 2008, I believe. Along with fraud check and two other false claims. I immediately said that I was only 16 than though he continued the pressure. Statements of we sent you multiple EMAILS, you’ll receive a summon, etc. After he continued to talk about me I said in a very naive way “He said in his absurdly thick accent” of course. “I than yelled” you such a person I I was a student of law and the likeliness of convincing me of any truth was impossible. “He continued to press me and I slyly said a remark in Spanish than hung up. The fact that I was 16 in said year and British alone should have made him end the call, very foolish tactic. They called me BACK RIGHT AFTER AS WELL. I can also complain of the heavy background noise, completely spineless people praying on Americans suffering through enough of a crisis as is. If I receive another call I will take some of these actions to try and help in ceasing this callous behavior.
DeYOUNG: Right now, there are very little information about rollovers, the reasons for rollovers, and the effects of rollovers. And without academic research, the rule is going to be based on who shouts the loudest. And that’s a bad way to write law or regulation. That’s what I really worry about. If I could advocate a solution to this, it would be: identify the number of rollovers at which it has been revealed that the borrower is in trouble and is being irresponsible and this is the wrong product for them. At that point the payday lender does not flip the borrower into another loan, does not encourage the borrower to find another payday lender. At that point the lender’s main is then switched into a different product, a long term loan where he or she pays it a bit bit every month.
Call went to my MIL’s house. Phone number was 877-334-5288. Said they needed me to call before 5 p.m. I called them, they started the whole laughter about I had an old payday loan and was going to be charged with frud, malicious intent, etc. I stopped the guy and asked for his company name and address and he hung up on me. LOL Think I’m going to call back and try again for the hell of it.
I received a call from Jonathan Andrews of Adams, Peterson and Irving stating I have a file placed with them that needs immediate attention. The caller said they would send the file to my county for prosecution. 844-580-7842 was the number on my caller ID … who has this experience? What was the result.
Does a researcher who’s out to make a splash with some sexy finding necessarily work with more bias than a researcher who’s working out of pure intellectual curiosity? I do not think that’s necessarily so. Like life itself, academic research is a case-by-case scenario.
I have to warn you that even some of the attorneys I know who regularly sue debt collectors who break the law will not touch the cases that involve payday loans. Even if they are successful defending the client, they tell me, they can not collect. This may not be the case with all collectors, but I have to warn you that you can be dealing with very aggressive collection agencies here.
Counselors and Lawyers with Nationwide business operations. They called me multiple times alleging that my mother owed a $ 2,000 debt for writing bad checks. They said that the party wanted to prosecute and provided a fake address and social security number that was supposedly my mother’s. They did not provide any website, no bar number and
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. In such cases, we recommend submitting a complaint to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. You can find more information about dealing with debt collectors here:
Joseph – You may want to alert your employer. This scam is well documented from many sources so hopefully your employer would be understanding if you explained that you are being targeted by a scammer.
Sadly, these types of scammers are good at what they do and very convincing. They prey on consumers that are not aware of the rules and use scare tactics to convince them otherwise. You hit the nail on the head with this:
This is a common tactic that is used to scare you into pay without questioning the validity of the debt. There are laws in place that protect you from debt collectors and they have to abide by those laws (if they are legitimate and not scams).

call from Niagra Capital Services Inc. About a loan from 2010 when I lived in New Jersey. He said he has a legal complaint about me. He has my new phone number, where I used to work as well as my new address in a different state. He said with interest I owe about $ 1,500, but will settle for $ 560. I asked him to email me the info, (since he has my email address) I have taken the name of the payday loan company that I took out the loan with. I remember that I paid hundreds of over what I borrowed. I emailed him back and asked for the original paperwork associated with the loan. I did some research and found that payday loans are illegal in the state of New Jersey. It’s been over 4 years. What can I do?
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.
Ok update. Yesterday I received from the bank my statement for the year of the alleged payday loans and it only confirmed what I knew to be true, no transactions of any kind either at Payday loan deposit or any attempt to collect on it.
Rudy – Please do not freak out. This kind of thing happens all the time and what you’re saying happened has all the signs of a scam. I do not want to be taken by a scammer. Read this article: 9 Signs You Are Talking to Debt Collection Scammer
I did, however, take out a payday loan from a company named Cash Web, who promptly sold my info to a company called Hydra Loans. Perfect name as they had dozens of other such businesses. They put money in my account, though I never saw a contract or signed a thing; not even a phone call I paid them back the principle immediately but they still tried to get money out of my account (not even on paydays though they claim I applied for the loan and spoke to someone on the phone to set it up). I had to close my account and open a new one to stop them. Now, years later I’ll get these calls or letters, but nothing will ever happen. I ignore them, but if I had the time and money, I would love to get them I to court.
Ask them to send you a notification of the debt. They are required to do that within three business days of calling you. If they are not, they are definitely not up and up. Also, debt collectors can not make false statements. Telling you that you will go to jail for check fraud will probably fall under that category. (You can not go to jail just because you can not pay a debt) and you’re right – not paying back a payday loan is not check fraud.)
