Sorry you let fear overtake your good judgment. You can report it to your state attorney general or you can try filing a report with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. However, many of these operations are based outside the U.S. and can be hard to track. And next time – and hopefully there will be no one – keep in mind that you have rights that should be respected.
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.
I’m really sorry to say that you are going to be legally prosecuted in the Court House within a couple of days. Your SSN is put on hold by US Government, so before something goes wrong I thought I would call you and notify you about this matter. But as I was not able to reach you I am sending you an ultimate email notification. So please take a piece of paper and write down your case MW18240 and second thing since it’s a legal matter you will need my help, so please write down my callback number is 315-999-7327 Ext 2000
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
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 call was about a cash advance loan that I received over the computer in 2007. They said I owe $ 1500 and I had to give them at least $ 25 before I got off the phone with them or I would be arrested and have to spend $ 5000 to get out of jail, have to pay short money and get put on probation.
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

I’m very leary about calling them back and giving them my current address as I do not have them to have another piece of the puzzle if this is a scam. It’s just that the lady not only sounded sympathetic but did give me good good advice in this case is the theft ID. but again if the debt was real and even if someone used my ID to get these loans the PayDay Loan companies had a current and active bank account that could have accessed.

Cost of a payday loan. Many state laws set a maximum amount for payday loan fees ranging from $ 10 to $ 30 for every $ 100 borrowed. A typical two-week payday loan with $ 15 per $ 100 fee equates to an annual percentage rate (APR) of about 400 percent. By comparison, APRs on credit cards can range from about 12 percent to about 30 percent. In many states that allow payday lending, the cost of the loan, fees, and the maximum loan amount are capped.
told him he had been reported to the authorities and they were investigating. He yelled at me and said something to the effective having his “balls to my throat and how did I like that” then hung up. I have heard and more. I’m terrified to go to work. The numbers are a NJ number starting with a 973 area code and the company number starts with 646 (NY). Beware!
I received a call today from 888-958-3653 from a guy named mark saying I took out a payday loan back in 2007 and i owed $ 425.00 said I had to pay in full by oct 31st or will be sued or my salary garnished i asked for their mailing address and he refused to five it to me and i asked if they could send me documentation in the mail and he said they were strictly a paperless company he said i had to give him my credit card before they could send me any information so you can not say he did not get my credit card info, the company is westwood mediation
I received a message from the other day from PDLR Group named her Jan Faith to call back at 877-269-0088. I called the next day to find out what this was for. I spoke to Jan who told me I had a payday loan that was back to 2008 or before, but did not have an exact date. The next thing she was telling me that if I did not settle with them TODAY and make a payment with a debit card or a prepaid card for $ 700, I was looking at at least $ 3500 with lawyers costs and court costs but that they will not go to short. She said they would go straight to my HR department to start garnishing my salary. Unfortunately I have applied for payday loan before but have paid back the one I did. I even find a website for Payday Today which is the company I supposedly did the loan with. I asked for written proof of the debt, and all of a sudden was rushed from the phone telling me that I could expect to be called down to HR about this. She said the wage assignment I signed was my forfeit from court, but she wanted to be the best of luck and she hung up. My HR needs a short time
So we are left with at least two questions, I guess. Number one: How well is the one of the payday-loan research we’ve been telling you about today, pro or con? And number two: How do we have any academic research?
If you did not get the right date and the date they did give I was out of the country so got there called one uncle who is a cop in the city number came from he busted 3 hindi’s man were they surprised. no time doing good in the desert and face being deported on the end of jail time, yes bubba loves her new roomies too
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

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.
I have been receiving calls from what sounds like the same group of folks. Starting last week I had a message from “Justin Jones” stating that I had to contact him immediately or have my attorney contact him that I would be sorry. If he did not hear from me that I would face some serious legal actions. He also said that they would come to my workplace or home and I will be the only responsible person for further legal consequences and that I should call him bsck as soon as possible before it too late. Thank you and have a blessed day, goodbye. It was very broken Indian dialect. I returned the call and spoke to Derek Anderson. Apparently Justin Jones is one of his “officers.” I was told that They would be willing to settle for $ 998 in place of the $ 1795.00 they said I owed them through Advance Payday Loan. I have never taken a payday loan. I had to give him a debit card or send a payment via Western Union right away or they would have the sheriff come to me on the following three charges. 1 breach of federal banking laws 2 Collateral check fraud, and 3 Theft by deception. I asked for a physical address so that I could send the funds via overnight delivery or some other traceable method. He did not want to give me a physical address but after much questioning from me he gave me an address of 633 Marimbo Street New York, NY 10023 But that they would not accept mail payments, only Western Union (he forgot about the debit and credit card at this point)
any other information. The payday borrower then writes a check – and this is the key part of the technology – the payday borrower then writes a check for the amount of the loan and postdates it by two weeks. And this becomes the collateral for the loan. So payday will not pay the loan in two weeks, the payday lender then deposits the check.
Do not panic. You have the right under the federal law to request the verification of the debt and the debt collector must provide it. They also must provide you with their contact information if you request it. So next time they call, ask for their mailing address. If they do not give it to you then they are either a. a scam or b. a rogue collector who is breaking the law.
My husband and I filed bankruptcy due to unforeseen circumstances and we had an outstanding payday loan. My attorney explained to us that a payday loan is treated as an unsecured debt and would file the papers and there was no need to worry about this because it would be included in the bankruptcy as unsecured. Needless to say I got a very dangerous call from a company called US Capital Management (855) 596-0411. They said they represented MYMONEYCHEST.com and they would see us in court for a balance. I asked the woman to contact my attorney and they said they could not because they are just the middle man in this. I told her if there is a balance and we are currently in a bankruptcy, there should be no reason they could not reach out to our attorney. I called my attorney and he said to have them call him. They will not! They told me that they were going to serve me papers at my job. Is this possible? Can they do that? I can not get them to give me any paperwork about this balance owed.
I gotten calls from PDLR- IT’S A SCAM! Beware for Miss Berry, Miss Santiago, or Miss Stiles, who all claim to be supervisors! The said my salary is going to be garnished in 2 days, we had a very heated exchange in which Miss Berry started talking about my mother, lol. Then when I insisted on the proof of the debt, how much, and who they are, they told me that I would get an email after the 1st payment is made. Initially I thought it was a legitimate debt & gave my credit card info, but after googling this agency I’ve found it a scam. Called my bank & reported it immediately.
Same thing happened to me today with the 6308445678 number. She told me I took out this loan in 08 but when I asked her the name on the loan she told me it was my marriage name that I did not have until after that date. Then I told her I’m not working and she said she did not know why anyone in their right mind would not want a job or have a job. She then said “Well, I have a job and pay my bills” Little does she know I’m staying at home mom taking care of MY kids! Ugh so annoying!
I’ve been receiving similar phone calls from 877-824-6758 and 866-981-6854, from a guy named “Bill Davis” and a woman named “Amy Rogers” who claims to Bill’s “partner” .. they first called my work and left a message with my supervisor, claiming that they have two charges against me and that if I do not contact them they are going to serve me at work. Then the call to my cell and the threatening messages followed. I finally blocked them on my cell. So, “Amy” called my brother’s phone and left a message for him, saying that I had charges against me and I was being taken to court. This really ****** me off !! What can be done to stop these people? Can I report them to the police? !!! I’m getting fed up !!!
Jason – It absolutely sounds like the classic overseas payday loan scam. Do not send them a penny. Remember, in the US a debt collector is required to send notification of the debt to you in writing. If he does not, he’s breaking the law. Report these guys to the FTC and your state attorney general.
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.
If they call back, follow the instructions outlined in this article or the resource provided above. If the collector will not comply with your requests, then it may be a scam. It’s hard to say until you talk to them to see if the debt is legitimate. Whatever you do, do not let them intimidate you in paying without validating the debt. As a result of the comment on this thread, they use scare tactics and prey on consumers not knowing their rights and the laws when it comes to debt collections.
t there, “he says.
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.

DEYOUNG: Studies that have looked at this have found that once you control for the demographics and income levels in these areas and these communities, the racial characteristics no longer drive the location decisions. As you can expect, business people do not care what color their customers are, as long as their money’s green.
I googled both numbers but nothing comes up, not even as fraudulent number, so they may be newer numbers. That’s why I wanted to post this in case someone else googles those numbers. She did not disclose any specific information about the charges, did not say it was a debt collection or anything. Did not state the company she works for or the name of the “firm” I’m supposed to call.
I’m getting calls often, different numbers, started about a week ago.It is scary, and upsetting.Latest is from 1-718-841-6480.Thaey call work, threatens to file charges against me, I will be arrested if I don i pay.A guy tried to get me $ 560 immediately.I didn’t.Help
I received a call from Pay day loan recovery in Illinois. They say it’s for a loan from 2010 and now it’s $ 2300. If I do not settle today I will have my salary garnished and my drivers will be suspended. I thought it was legitimate bc they were not rude. However, in my old paperwork, I can not find any notices or letters. I want to pay any debt that I owe but I dont want to be paying something that is not real. Also, my real fear is suspended for drivers! I have to drive to work
