I’m sorry to hear you pay this debt! It sounds like they are the ones acting illegally. Debts included in bankruptcy are protected by the automatic stay, and once the debt is discharged to a creditor can not try to collect it.
DIANE STANDAERT: From the data we’ve seen, payday loans are disproportionately concentrated in African-American and Latino communities, and that African-American and Latino borrowers are disproportionately represented among the borrowing population.
I received a voice mail today from some guy who identified herself as a “Carl Thomas”. He never told me who he was with or what his business was. He gave me a claim number and said that he had a pending wage garnishment order and a motion to suspend my drivers license. He left a number (877-601-5861 x261) I called the number to meet the guy but the number he gave was not a working number. So I called the number that appeared on my caller ID. A woman answered only by saying “what extension please”. What number did I call and she answered “an answer service”. So I gave the extension. I was connected with “Carl Thomas” and I advised him that I had received a message for someone and that the information he left on the voice was illegal by law debt collection. Carl Thomas got real mad real quick and told me I did not have to tell him how to do his “F # $ King job” and that if I did not give him the god * & am file number that I could go to hell and shove it. So after he hung up on me I called the answer service back and they advised me that it was a company called PDLR with a PO Box in Aurora, Illinois. The number to the “answer service” is 603-486-1900. Hope this helps.
When Britain threw out 23 Russian diplomats in response to an assassination attempt on Russian agent Sergei Skripal, Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia and the current bad boy of modern geopolitics, shrugged it off. With the relations between London and Moscow so strained, the embassy did not have all that much to do, anyway. The cost, Putin no doubt felt, was predictable and bearable. Then on Monday, 20 other countries, from Albania to Ukraine, joined in a coordinated expulsion campaign, with the United States accounting for 60 of the Russians sent packing. On Tuesday, NATO announced it would expel seven Russian diplomats in response to the poisoning. Suddenly, the Kremlin is not looking really so comfortable. With the Skripal hit, it looks like Putin may have finally overreached.
with a case # So I immediately called back and a lady answered as “United” and asked for my case #. I gave it to her and she said I owe for a PDL from Sept 2011 with ACE. I do not remember having a loan with them. I have had PDLs before and thought I’ve forgot about it. I Todd them I’m on maternity leave and have no income. Then she transferred me to her supervisor because she was monitoring the call and wanted to try and work something out with me. He asked if Ihad people I can borrow the money from because if it does not get paid I will go to court and be charged with fraud check. Scared the crap out of me! So he said I can pay $ 150 by Jan 25th and the rest by Feb 22. I asked why I never got anything in the mail. He asked if the address he had was right, it was an address that I moved out of in June 2011. So he said that’s why. He said I had to get the payment plan with a debit card. I was stupid and gave it to him. The last few days I’ve been thinking about it because I just did not remember this loan. Then I remembered that in AZ they have no real payday loans, they were outlawed in 2010. Now they give you a loan off your car registration or title. So if I defaulted then they would have come and taken my car. Also, IF you give them a check it has to be a voided check. So how can I have a bad check if they can not cash it being that it was voided? So … .does it sounds like my situation is also a scam? If so I probably need to cancel my card.
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 !!!
Turn the tables on them. You can report them to the FTC.gov. Give the FTC as many details as you can. If you have applied for a payday loan online in the past, you may need to include the name of that site in your complaint because your information was either sold or compromised and the FTC needs to know where these guys are getting personal information. That information will go into a database that is shared by law enforcement and other governmental agencies.
So far I’ve closed the account and opened up a new one. Put fraud alert on my credit reports and requested from my bank transactions from the years of the CRS Solutions have me the loans were supposedly taken out.
Just received a call from 267-350-8751 claiming I owed money from a loan in 2011 … .she said they would take all my property, garnish my salary, and send me to jail … for an alleged $ 300 loan? I said some not nice things, and she hung up.
They left me a voice message saying that I would be served some paperwork between 12 & 4pm monday. And if I was not at home they would come by my job. I called them at 3:30 Monday and they said there was a problem having to be ready tomorrow or take care of it today. I asked who was from they said B & G payday loan I took out in 2011 for $ 500.00. I told them I never heard of them and just served me the paperwork. He got an attitude saying I should pay and it’s more because it’s so late. He sounded like he was high on drugs and his phone was breaking up and his raspy voice I could barely
Cash advances often cost 3 to 5 percent of the amount being borrowed. When made on a credit card, the interest is often higher than other credit card transactions. The interest compounds daily starting from the day cash is borrowed.
I’ve been getting phone messages from a place that calls themselves “fraud division” with a Nebraska number claiming that it had taken out a loan in 2013 (which I have not), they claim that if I did not come up with 1169.50 of which I had to pay half today that they were going to forward the
My daughter (who’s phone number has not been associated with me) received a call from (602) 726-0102 form an unknown company, addressing me, that I was under investigation and needed to call them back. My daughter gave me the info and I called them back.
• Ask the collector for the name and address of the collection 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.
serve me papers. She lives in Chicago and I live in southern Illinois. I called to see what was going on just to find out it’s a bill I’ve already paid off. The person on the phone told me that my account was just sold to them and they hired a locator to find me to serve me papers. They did not want to serve me at work. I told her it was paid off in July and she said I had to get a “Pay in Full” letter from the collector and they would drop it. I called Asset Management and they are sending me a letter. Asset gave me the corporate number for The Cash Store, I called and was told it was fraud and to stop all contact with this company. I’m still going to send in my “pay in full” letter but if I get anything from BOR again I’m going to go after them for violations of the law. This is ridiculous. I keep good records of all my payments and debts (I’ve had many over the years), I know a lot of people do not. They would have just paid them.
It starts like this: “Except for the ten to twelve million people who use them every year, just about everybody hates payday loans. Their detractors include many law professors, consumer advocates, members of the clergy, journalists, policymakers, and even the President! But is all the enmity justified? ”
DeYOUNG: Well, in a short sentence that’s very scientific I would start by saying, “Let’s not throw the baby out with the bathwater.” The question comes down to how we identify the water here and how do we identify the baby here. One way is to collect a lot of information, as the CFPB suggests, about the creditworthiness of the borrower. But that brings up production cost of payday loans and will probably put the industry out of business. But I think we can all agree that once someone pays a fee in an aggregate amount equal to the amount that was originally borrowed, that’s pretty clear that there’s a problem there.
Recd a call from 877-269-0088 from Miss Rios stating that I had 5000 for a payday loan first of all you could not take that much money and the second of all if it was from 2 yrs ago and when I asked them to send docs They said they did not have I told them I do not pay anything unless I signed it and I have copies of it. They threaten to garnish my wages, they could not understand what they were from. Then just today I call from phone number 877-258-1188 from Miss Berry stating that my payment was not gone thru well duh not i did not have anything and she left me a msg to call her back in 2 days as she was going to garnish my salary fat I worked for the federal govt and they wld love to see this come thru talk about jail time i am lmao on this one already contacted authorities and changed bank accts BEWARE THEY ARE IDIOTS
“I do not think they’ll be back, because I told them that it’s federal law to send me something written in the mail before trying to collect the debt from me” – Surprisingly, once they know that you know the laws (and better than they do), they typically do back and give up. Thank you for sharing your story, it shows that knowing and understanding your rights can help protect you from being a victim.
We also have received several calls. We had applied months back for a payday loan. When we called us back to confirm they were only willing to give us half of what we needed so we told them we were not taking it. Now months later we are getting phones, with the number coming up unknown or as 00000. The guy claims his name is John Frederick. He claims he is from the George Washington Associates and that unless my boyfriend calls him back they will have to take him to court. Repeatdly asks for our attorney’s information. We’ve told him we do not have one and he tells us we get better or pay the debt. My boyfriend works out of town during the week, so the first time I got this call I said this and asked for the name of the company that they are persuading the debt for. He will tell me that he can not give me that information. But when my boyfriend calls them back they will not answer his calls. Today I told him that he had all our other information, so if the debt is real send it to us in paper work, and to stop calling because we have already notified the authorities. I then told him to have a nice day and to F *** off. When he leaves the message on our machine they are always ending “If we do not hear from you all I can do is wish you the best of luck like this badly unfolds on you.” How do we stop these when there is no number ? Its really annoying.
Erin Shank and her employees are very professional. They explained the process to me thoroughly. One of the things that I appreciated most is that they were not judgemental. I would recommend her to anyone who is considering bankruptcy, especially Veterans. She is an expert in provisions that … Read More
that the company is legitimate. In addition, she should NOT pay with a prepaid card. This is what the scammers ask and that is because it can not be traced.
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!
has been slammed with an unexpected bill and no cash on hand to cover it. If you ignore the expense, things may only get worse. But your next paycheck is still a long way away.
This has all the classic signs of a payday loan scam. I would encourage you to report this firm to the authorities – FTC, CFPB, and tell them next time they call you call their call to report them to law enforcement.

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.
This money, still no amount was disclosed, he just wanted my attorneys name because I had felony criminal charges against a very serious matter. Again I asked for it in writing and he got very hateful, asked me to hang on while he got his supervisor and the phone got disconnected. I called the number right back and it went to a voice message, again with no greeting, just leave your name and number. I thought it was all done, I received another call Nov 30 at my workplace, this time from Jack Thomas (again very heavy Indian accent) and he is supposidly with Kevin Peterson Law Agency in New York only the phone number was 516-847-4310 which is supposidly out of New York. I contacted my local police department at this time, gave them all 3 of these different phone numbers and they tried to call them but only to receive the “no-greeting” voice mail. So today, Dec 2 I get a call from Kevin Peterson, Attorney at Law out of San Francisco, Ca from 530-344-4624 Tell me he will have the local sheriff come to my place of work and serve me with papers, again Kevin has very broken english and very heavy Indian accent. The accusations they are making are awful, does anyone know what can be done. I am sick to death with this
If a legitimate collector contacted you for a legitimate debt, you could ask them stop
, blah, blah blah. Some people have been middle east, but some are not. I tried to leave a message to call me back but no answer. I went on the net tonight, and have been enlightened. I have to cancel my checking acct. because I gave them my info. I feel so gullable. Just because I gave them auth. for auto withdrawl. Don, do it, please just deal with the companies you took out the loan with !!!
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. .
sure now it was a scam.
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.
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. (Do not be intimidated by the fact that they have a lot of information about you – that’s very common with payday loans.)
I took out a loan from Check N Go about a year ago and I just started to pay it off. A debt collector agency named the PDL Recovery Group started calling me and threatening me if I did not start a payment plan, check N Go was going to take me to court and start garnishing my salary.
I called back and a man answered and said that the debt was a payday loan that is more than two years old. I sent a stop and desist letter to the payday loan company back then, and even then they would not leave me alone. I had to contact the California State Department of Corporations and the state attorney general’s
