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
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? ”
He said he worked for Morgan Lewis on behalf of Money & More. He had all my personal information, bank information, ssn, dob. He told me I had committed internet fraud by taking out a loan and not paying it back. I did not remember to take out a loan online & told him I did not remember to take out a loan on the internet. He then told me that he had email transactions and verification from my bank that the ACH withdrawal was declined twice so I had committed internet fraud and was going to jail. He then hung up on me.
I just got a call from this company saying I got a payday loan off line and I never paid for it. He gave me information that anyone could have gotten when you apply for a payday loan online. He said that I would be arrested and jailed if I did not pay $ 1,000 immediately when he stared saying this I asked for the name of the company and he was hesitant to give me the name and i gotggled it and found all of the complaints about the company. I did not believe it because none of the payday loans that I have, have been from the internet. It’s funny because I’m typing this one from USA CASH Advance # 904-900-8462. These people should be stopped.
Jessica – It sure sounds like a scam to me. Unfortunately you’re not going to get the money you paid back but hopefully you can stop further withdrawals. To be safe, talk with your bank, explain what happened and find out if you need to take other steps to protect yourself. Now that you’ve paid something they will probably be relentless in their efforts to get more money from you. I recommend you also read my article, 7 Ways to Stop Overseas Debt Collection Scam Calls.
Last year, bike sharing took off in China, with thousands of bike-share companies quickly flooding city streets with millions of brightly colored rental bicycles. However, the rapid growth was largely outpaced immediate demand and overwhelmed Chinese cities, where infrastructure and regulations were not prepared to handle sudden flood of millions of shared bicycles. Riders would park bikes anywhere, or just abandon them, resulting in bicycles piling up and blocking already-crowded streets and pathways. As cities impounded derelict bikes by the thousands, they moved quickly to cap growth and regulate the industry. Big batteries of impounded, abandoned, and broken bicycles have become a familiar sight in many big cities. As many of the companies have been in the bigger and too early have begun to fold, their huge surplus of bicycles can be found collecting dust in large vacant lots. Bike sharing remains very popular in China, and will probably continue to grow, only at a more sustainable rate. Meanwhile, we are left with these images of speculation gone wild-the piles of debris left behind after the bubble bursts.
Ok this is the second call I got the first one my sister in law answered and she was given a woman’s name and a phone number and case number …. Well just a couple of days ago they left a message that guy calledly named Peter Hersh said to call this number 1-866-583-6379 and left the name of ADR Firm and that it was my last chance to contact them before I got served but he said that the state of California was suing me … .Hmmm this did scare me because I did not know why would the state be suing me? Well I’m glad I googled and this came up. It sucks this happening to us. I just like to know what we can do? Is there somewhere we can report this to?
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.
I received an email from a law enforcement officer. He claimed that I have a cash advance Inc. money and that they were getting ready to take legal action against me. The seal on the email said 712th non court court court. They were expecting a reply from me so I gave them one.
They are not calling

Some other academic research we’ve mentioned today does not recognize the role of CCRF in providing industry data – like Jonathan Zinman’s paper which showed that people suffered from the disappearance of payday-loan shops in Oregon. Here’s what Zinman writes in an author’s note: “Thanks to the Consumer Credit Research Foundation (CCRF) for providing home survey data. CCRF is a non-profit organization, funded by payday lenders, with the mission of funding objective research. CCRF did not exercise any editorial control over this paper. ”
The decline of marriage is on us. But, at least, that’s what the zeitgeist would have
You can report to your state attorney general office, and you can submit a complaint to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. However, the people you are dealing with may be out of the country or may have a “business” that often changes names. You are wise to ask for validation of the debt. A legitimate collector would have provided it. Keep the evidence that the loan was repaid and try not to worry. We are written about what to do when you receive a call before. Perhaps it will be useful to you.

Ok I’ve been reading everyday experience with these people who started with me last year saying that i have a payday company that my ssn had something attached to it from the general saying that I was going to be put in jail if i didnt pay … they would call me on my cell back to back..one day i answered the call and told them to send this to me in writing … they said they would but did not like i guessed .. that i would be arrested and jailed if i did not pay … this would happen every month i would get someone talking in broken english saying that i need to call them -some of the numbers and names ..
I have received many of the same calls. I also received a call from the National Check Fraud Center who said they had a warrant for my arrest ready and processed and sent to the sheriffs department in my county. Unfortunately I’m one of the ones who was so scared that I did pay. I had a bankruptcy and the payday loan was unfortunately included. The debt has been discharged. The National Check Fraud Center said on voice mail to consider myself as I would and that this was illegal and could not be counted in a bankruptcy. Anything on the National Check Fraud Center?
STP management group is i was harassed by, I had to change my cell #, but they were still harassing me at work. I filed a report with the consumer financial protection office and they said they would stop & desist contacting me. They claim they have a good standing with the BBB, but of course when I look them up with such company exists. These scammers are bold and taking advantage of people with scare tactics.
“People this stuff is a SCAM they CAN NOT arrest you for having a faulty payday loan. They first have to take you to court and they CAN NOT contact you by phone to inform you of it. You have to be served from the court house stating when and where the court is and who is being taken to court by and for what reasons. ”
Mind you, no one ever asked me for updated information or my address … their gums just continued to flap about how I was going to be served a crime sum at an address I have not lived at for 8 years.
I know you’re panicked about this, but do not be. Social Security payments are generally safe from creditors. (If you have a federally guaranteed loan your Social Security funds may be at risk but even then you will be notified in the phone and not from the phone call out of the blue.)
It’s a good idea to call first and confirm what you will need. Our friendly associates will be happy to help!
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.
That’s the real question Kristen. How do we stop them? If they are calling from overseas and flouting our laws, what can we do? I recommend that you file a complaint with your state attorney general, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (consumerfinance.gov) and the Better Business Bureau with as many details as possible, in case there is an investigation into this company. In the meantime, you may want to find out if your phone company offers a call screening service. It will cost a few bucks a month but may be useful.
That does sound sound, does not it? A typical credit card rate is around 15 percent, maybe 20 or higher if you have bad credit. But to the payday-loan industry, a proposal of 36 percent is not reasonable at all.
I too was a victim but never again. These fools still call me. Ronnie Cooper, David Cooper, John McCoy. Ph’s 987-928-2683, 909-503-0684,949-752-4600,958-489-0227 and 214-446-9831. Same old scam, I did not give that a red hundred !! FYI !! Please read this on MSN today. Do not let these people get to you !! Please be aware.
The Illinois Attorney General’s Office says the bogus debt collectors have heard about using various names, including: Morgan & Associates, Federal Bureau of Investigators, DNR Recovery, DNI Recovery, Legal Accounts Association, Department of Law and Enforcement, CashNet USA , American Legal Services, Quick Cash, and ACS. If you hear from any of these companies, be sure to report them immediately to your state Attorney General’s office and the Federal Trade Commission
FULMER: It would take the $ 15 and it would make that fee $ 1.38 per $ 100 borrowed. That’s less than 7.5 cents per day. The New York Times can not sell a newspaper for 7.5 cents a day. And somehow we are expected to be unsecured, relative, $ 100 loans for a two-week period for 7.5 cents per day. It just does not make economical sense.
Hey I’ve been getting calls from a bryan agent claiming to be from The Fraudulent Investigation Department. Number is 3474180337. He had a thick accent. He has threatened to come arrest me at my work place. Has anyone else heard of this company. Are they scanners? Also second company I missed the name but number number is 6303320770. This guy name was adam woods. He has been threatening me all day I have to go to western union and transfer money to them. I believe this is a scam. He says I will be arrested if I do not. Any suggestions
I got a call today from a GA number, 404-996-1953, I was told that an arrest warrant was going to be out at at 5 pm today If I did not make a payment of 300.00 for a loan I did not receive , but bc I applied and cancelled and changed my bank acct information I was going to be held for check fraud, I explained that I never received the loan and she explained that I did not read the fine print that said that by applying for this loan I agreed to pay
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
we believe. In 2010, when Time magazine and the Pew Research Center famously asked Americans whether they thought marriage was becoming obsolete, 39 percent said yes. That was up from 28 percent when Time asked the question in 1978. Also, since 2010, the Census Bureau reported that married couples have made up less than half of all households; in 1950 they made up 78 percent. Data such as these have led to much collective handwringing about the fate of the embattled institution.
