We are working on some of our payday loans clients and they are getting these same calls. One of the customers were scared in paying them until I looked it up. They said they were from payday loan recovery group. Saying she owed a loan from 2008 for 1,200 and she could pay it in full for $ 399. She was scared in paying but I told her to cancel her creid card before it went through. They send her an invoice on the decline. The processing company is http:
Cash Advance® does not make credit decisions nor does Cash Advance® conduct a credit inquiry on consumers. Some lenders on the Cash Advance® network may conduct a non-traditional credit check in order to determine your eligibility for a loan. Lenders typically do not conduct a credit inquiry with the three major credit bureaus: Transunion, Experian, or Equifax. If you do not repay your loan on time your lender may report this delinquency to one or more credit bureaus, which may have a negative impact on your credit score. We encourage consumers with credit problems to consult a Credit Counseling company.
said it is called [redacted]. They state I took a short-term loan before 2010 and they are a third party trying to get the back back. When I ask her to send me something and tell her I do not see anything on my credit report she says it’s because they have not filed anything yet it has not impacted my credit yet. I told her she had to send me something in writing and she refused. So I got a little rude with her and started asking questions and she hung up on me. I did a little research and many people had the same experience so I blocked the numbers they gave, called id showed [redacted] and the call back on voicemail was [redacted]. They then started calling my mother and sister. I have made complaints to the FCC, attorney general, the donotcall.gov and BBB. How else can I make these calls stop? It’s frustrating !!!
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.
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 !!!
In a perfect world, you will be able to get a quick cash advance on your paycheck to pay the bill. Then when your next payday rolls around you would pay the cash advance back. Fortunately, you can do that with an online cash advance from Check ‘n Go. †

Please do not send them any money. Of them were a legitimate debt collector they would have to send you a written confirmation of the debt.
This same Michael Moore had contacted me about 6 months ago, from a different #, with the same story of serving papers for my arrest about 6 months ago but that I owed money to PDL Loan for November 2008 … which I’m sure I do not owe, and I should send a payment immedately to settle claim.
Some guy named [redacted] keeps emailing me that i need to pay $ 1200 by friday or i will go to jail. The money for a debit collector but he will not tell which company it is. And he wants the money by friday but he only emails me. He will call me the company that pay day loans from
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.
I am receiving threatening call from 877-673-8289, they left a message but also spoke with my father at my house. On the message they guy talk so fast but I think the name is Darrell Hines. He tried to say he was a court processor and that they were coming to my house and working to server me papers for check fraud and he also told my father this on the phone. In the message the only number given is the one above and that is for “Payday Solutions” which I found out when I returned the call. They later called back and asked for my daughter by name. I plan to follow through with this company and the company at the FTC and the Texas Attorney General’s office.

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.
Today I came in from a stressful day, phone rings and it’s some stupid chick telling me I was going to be served and did not call this number at ADR – 877-801-8348. I asked her what was she talking about. She said, “I can not tell you the records are sealed!” She said, “If you call this number that will prevent you from a lot of trouble!” I said “No thanks, I would rather know what the trouble is , serve me! “I live in a remote part of the country – PO Box only – I also knew I had not been responsible for anything illegal. Have been a grown up now for several years and knew -my life was clean! I told her if she called me back that I was going to turn her into the AG’s Office and hung up. A few minutes later my mom called some girl was looking for me and I needed to call that number. My mom is 83 and we just went through the lost, my dad and my brother-in-law. None of us need this at anytime in our lives. I WILL turn them into the authorities if they call me back. I hope everybody else will do the same. I told my mom not to even think about talking to them or anyone else who can not identify themselves or their company. It’s a shame such evil lives in our world … find a job, do something honest for a change. We have enough crap going on without these scumsuckers bothering us or moreso our parents! BTY the girls name was CORY.
I’m getting threatening call from PDL, Stacey
It sounds like it is likely you are being scammed. If you give them your bank account information please contact your bank immediately for advice. Please read: 9 Signs You Are Talking to Debt Collection Scammer
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.
When you accept the terms and conditions for a loan, you are agreeing to pay back the principal loan and finance charges in the amount of time shown in the documents provided by your lender. Additional fees or charges by your lender may apply in the event that you can not repay your loan in full or if you make a late payment. We can not predict the amount of fees that you will incur as a result of non-payment, late payment, or partial payment. Additionally, we have no knowledge of the loan details between you and your lender. Please refer to the late payment, partial payment, and non-payment policies detailed in the loan documents provided by your lender. Our company makes a good effort to work only with reputable lenders who live by Fair Debt Collection Practices. If you have a complaint about a specific lender, please contact us.
The explanation for this is not simple, and a variety of economic jargon floats around the issue. But it’s all started with this: The typical payday-consumer loan is too desperate, too unsophisticated, or too exhausted from being treated with disrespect by traditional lenders to engage in shopping. So demand is what economists call price tax. As Clarence Hodson, who published a book in 1919 about the business of small loans, put it, “It is not possible for bargain to benefit with cupidity.” In its last financial year, Advance America, one of the country’s largest payday lenders, wrote, “We believe that the main competitive factor is customer service, rental, convenience, speed, and confidentiality.” You will notice it did not mention the price.
DURBAN, South Africa – Ronald Louw was a human-lawyer lawyer and professor at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, the South African province, which is one of the most affected areas of the world, so he must have known about the dangers of the virus. In April 2005, he was taking care of his mother, who had been diagnosed with cancer, when he realized he had a cough that would not go away. He went to a doctor who treated him with antibiotics.
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.
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.
You may be right that you have become a victim of a scam. We can not know if they will empty your accounts. Here’s a Credit.com article that will be useful to you in planning your next steps: How to Get Help if You’ve Been Scammed. Good luck to you.
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.
I just dealt with ACS. They have been hounding me for a couple of weeks trying to get me a total of $ 625. One person calls immediately to the “supervisor”, Denis Petersen. They even faxed and emailed me to complete (completely bogus) to authorize a credit card only payment plan. When the first payment came, they became very aggressive, calling my cell phone over a dozen times in a row in one instance. Today they called my primary job (hospital ER) yelled at a nurse and called her a stupid bitch, my coworkers rightly freaked and went to my manager who called me. I assured her that people were scammers and told her I would immediately call the FTC and states the attorney’s office, which I did. I also had her apologize to my coworkers. I was so upset, I was shaking. I called ACS and confronted Denis Petersen, who had been the fake supervisor bullying these payments. He told me he could call me the same things and hung up when I said his behavior was illegal. I then received two calls on my cell. I call back and say stop calling my cell. This Denis Peterson goes to the person who called me “Why did you call her cell, I told you to call her work so she loses her job!” I just
I b. I have been receiving the same calls from Jason and Ms. Thomas from the same company in Illinois. (ALSO, SAID THEY WOULD GARNISH WAGES AND REVOKE MY LICENSE) They have now started employing americans to make these calls to make it sound legit. So I advised that I have been recording these calls for the FBI investigation that I am involved in. I am a professional lawyer and debt collector can not call you without verifying that they have the correct person and that would be done via certified mail with a summons and complaint against you. Also, if the collector such as Jason Locke and Ms. Thomas from 877-601-5871 Ext 259 and 877-601-5871 Ext 251 were real debt collectors they would have to provide written proof of the original loan, copies of the e-sign agreement between you and the lender, account numbers, telephone numbers for the lender etc … This guy Jason did not know his own address when I asked him and he could not confirm my full social security number. Also, one tip to remember is legit collectors have to say the following statement before talking with you “This is a try to collect a debt etc.”, so remember that. The unfortunately was scammed out of $ 500.00 a few years ago and I paid the fees and sent fax to them
Payday Advance Inglewood Ca
I got a call from a guy claiming he was the guy that was sent to serve me for check fraud for a check I wrote a check on December 25, 2007. Honestly who would write a payday one loan on Christmas day. This made me suspect that something is funny. He called me from an unknown number. The guy gave me a 1-877-540 number and a case number which was only a few numbers. I called the number the guy acted like him
If these are legitimate collectors then they will stop calling at work once they are instructed by you to do so. That’s federal law
He does not want direct bank transfer and does not want money orders as both will leave paper trails right to him. He just wants us to get a pre-paid debit card from the store and put the money on it.
I could not believe how fast everything was processed! I could not believe that I had gotten approved as most lenders do not approve me for some unknown reason. I was so happy and thankful that it came through quickly. Now I’m able to pay for my bond! Thank you!
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?
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.
CashNetUSA’s payday loans are short-term loans of smaller amounts, generally less than $ 500, that are designed to tide you over until your next paycheck. Our payday loans are usually paid in one payment after two weeks after financing.
Does anyone have an address for these companies? I have been contacted by The Law Offices of Jeffrey Abate, Cashnet, and today the Department of Legal Services. When I asked for an address to validate the debt I was hung up on. I’ve been harassed for months now with calls to work, home and my cell phone. When I asked to not call my work I was told too bad. Which yes I know is against the law. I have filed reports with the FTC and the AG in Washington State with no luck because I do not have an address! HELP!
Anyone ever heard of Peter Shapiro or the Shapiro Agency? Telephone 877-723-4711. This ‘person’ has called two of my family members today and told them his agency was conducting a criminal investigation of me and needed a character statement. I’m sure this is the same as those who harassed me about a payday loan from 2006 to the point where I changed my cell phone number over a year ago. They were threatening criminal action then. My daughter asked if she was a debt collector and was told no. She looked them up on the internet and found, yes, they were collectors (of some sort). Now I have been paying my Chapter 13 for 50 months now with 4 more months to go. Any bill I owed is included in that bankruptcy. So you can believe this makes me furious! I’ve tried to call the number but I’m told to hold for Pete Shapiro and then asked to leave a voice message. I want to talk to this thing to voice. Any suggestions on who and how to complain about this thing?
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
Advance America follows all applicable federal and state laws, and the ability to have multiple loans depends on the state regulations. Please keep in mind that having more than one loan out at the same time could make it more difficult to repay your loans.
In a high-education system that is often divided between two and four-year colleges and further segregated between elite and nonelite institutions, it’s not often that a college college is mentioned in the same breath as the Ivy League campus. Nor is a two-year college as a training ground for jobs in the so-called creative economy, which includes industries such as design, fashion, and computer gaming that typically require bachelor degrees.
The French philosopher Alain Finkielkraut, the son of Holocaust survivors, is an accomplished, even gifted, pessimist. To his disciples, he is Jewish Zola, accusing France’s well-thoughtful intellectual class of complicity in its own suicide. To his foes, he is a reactionary whose nostalgia for fairy tale French past is induced by an irrational fear of Muslims. Finkielkraut’s cast of mind is generally dark, but when we met in Paris in early January, two days after the Charlie Hebdo massacre, he was positively grim.
We have shared with more than 3 million customers over the past 10 years, providing them with the credit they need to take control of their finances. Those years of experience have helped us improve our loans to our customers’ needs. Aspects like speed, easy to use and straightforward terms are all key parts of our loans, making quick and easy-to-understand loans for people who need cash fast.
That makes plenty of sense in theory. Payday lending in its most unfettered form seems to be ideal for neither consumers nor lenders. As Luigi Zingales, professor at the University of Chicago, told a group of finance professionals in a speech speech last year, “The effective outcome can not be achieved without mandatory regulation.” One controversy is whether the office, in its zeal to protect
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 …
