CHRISTOPHER WERTH: Right. Well, it’s a non-profit watchdog, relatively new organization. Its mission is to expose corporate and political misconduct, primarily by using open-record applications, such as the Freedom of Information Act or FOIA applications, to produce evidence.

wow. That’s disgusting, especially towards your daughter. I’d have told them “odd, I’ve already talked to my county sheriff about this, so PLEASE some over here because he really wants to meet you too! Oh, all of this is recorded and will be given to my Sheriff this afternoon while we’re sitting around waiting
caller states they will be taking legal action, that the sheriff will be at my house or work place to serve me with papers. Knows my address and date of birth and employer. Says I owe $ 1,100.00. He says I can have my lawyer can him. He speaks with a foriegn accent and sounds exactly like the guy who called 2 months ago for another company threatening the same thing. I paid the debt last time I got SCAMED? The name the guy gave was Mr. Flood and number was 310-999-0442. Please help me !!
They are not calling
The script and said that it was no longer there because it was now a federal obligation to pay them. My favorite part of the call was to be the ending …. “You’re only 24 right, so you do not know a lot about this or how bad this will affect you in the long run.” I called the Sheriff’s office and District Attorney’s office and filed a claim. Even the sheriff’s office said that they have had people call them because they have had phone calls telling them that there is a
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
Establish the correct entity that should rightfully receive payments on this debt. If you are going to settle on a letter stating the settlement terms. It has to state that on payment of $ x the debt will be deemed as “settled in full.” Then keep that payment proof for life. These C.A. resell your debt later to another C.A. and then it’s the same story collections all over again.
, 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 !!!
I got a call yesterday from a company called PDLR. This woman’s name was ms. ingram and she did not have an accent like a lot of the companies sited here. She said she was trying to settle a payday loan that I supposedly did not pay before they starte wage garnishments. She could not tell me who the original loan was with-said they were not a collection agency but that the original company did not send paerwork to me that was returned when I requested proof of the debt. The number they called from was 630-844-5678. Neither the company name or phone number popped up when i googled, but this is clearly a scam. I called back the number and the same person answered, but she did not identify a company. As far as I’m concerned, they can pound salt.
Turn the tables on this caller. Tell her you have written written notice of the debt which is your right under federal law. If she refuses to give it to her you will be recording all future calls to turn over the authorities.

In April of 2000, Christopher Walken hosted Saturday Night Live. During the show, he would insist that Will Ferrell add “more cowbell” to Blue Oyster Cult’s “Do not Fear” the Reaper “; Before that, however, he made an appearance in one of the SNL’s satirical ads. Clad in yellow-sweater and perched next to Ana Gasteyer before a roaring fire-and speaking in a classically Walkenan growl-the actor engaged in a bit of confession: “In a marriage,” he intoned, the fire crackling behind him, “Intimacy is important. Erectile dysfunction is a thief. It takes away something very precious. “Walken went on to announce that he and his fictional wife had discovered, together, the virtues of Viagra. “It worked,” he said, as Gasteyer smirked and the fire crackled and easy listening music played in the background. He paused. “It worked a lot.”
I fell for this, but I paid them because I had taken pdl out and I could not remember if I paid them. just last week they called again asking for money. When I went to send it westwest union it stopped you and I was able to get my money back. the number they call me from is 425-440-8053. I filled a report with the CSPD and got a number case. they told me if this man called back to give him the case number and the police number and have them call the local police station
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.
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.
Most of these scammers are hard to track, and if they are in other countries it makes it even more difficult. However, you may want to try filing a police report, and then file a complaint with the CFPB at consumerfinance.gov.
Rob Coleman from the Huntington Agency is another SCAM. Will call your work home and even people with you SAME LAST name as yours and leave the same threatening message. Then when you call the number back, it has been disconnected. They will not send you ANYTHING in writing. will not give you their financial mailing address either .. VERY INTESTERSTING
The staff and Erin were great. I would recommend Erin to anyone. Compared to our other lawfirm she saved us 10’s of thousands of dollars on our bankruptcy Erin is the best we do not think we could have done without her.
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
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.
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
remember they are sitting in a boiler room somewhere – maybe not in the US – making false threats. If you need to, call your phone company and find out how to put your phone call on your phone. Or get a google voice number and set it up so that only calls from people you know go through.
According to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, or the CFPB – the federal agency that President Obama wants to tighten payday-loan rules – 75 percent of the industry’s fees come from borrowers who take over 10 loans per year.
The bigger problem for payday lenders is the overhead. Alex Horowitz, a research manager at the Pew Charitable Trusts, says that two-thirds of the fee payday lenders collect are spent just keeping the lights on. The average storefront serves only 500 customers a year, and employee turnover is ridiculously high. For example, QC Holdings, a public traded nationwide lender, reported that it had to replace approximately 65 percent of its branch-level employees in 2014. “The profits are not extraordinary,” Horowitz says. “What is extraordinary is the inefficiency.”
Perhaps a solution of sorts-something that is better, but not perfect-could come from more modest reforms to the payday-lending industry, rather than trying to transform it. There are some evidence that smart regulation can improve the business for both lenders and consumers. In 2010, Colorado revised its payday-lending industry by reducing the permissible fees, extending the minimum term of a loan to six months, and requiring that a loan be repayable over time, instead of coming due all at once. Pew reports that half of the payday stores in Colorado are closed, but now everyday payday borrowers are paying 42% less in fees and defaulting less frequently, with no reduction in access to credit. “There’s been a debate for 20 years about whether to allow payday lending or not,” says Pew’s Alex Horowitz. “Colorado shows it can be much, better.”

I have been receiving phone calls from (949) 829-2391. My son not knowing any better told them where I work and now they are calling my work telling our secretary that they are going to serve me papers at work if I do not call them back within 2 hours. I am a teacher and I can not have them calling me at school. I called the number that was given 10 minutes after he called the school and got a machine … Jordan and Associates … He told the secretary that he had a legal business matter about quantum support services. I had gotten calls last year and they just started again. I have told them I am reporting them to FTC and Better Business Bureau. What can I do to get them to stop calling
There are several things wrong here, but the fact that your mother in law is having long conversations about your debts with the collector that’s calling. This is a violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Collectors are not allowed to discuss their reason for calling or sharing details about your debt with anyone other than you (or your spouse). Divorce tends to bring out the worst in some and it sounds like your going to be one of them.
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.)
This is a standard procedure when dealing with any debt collector and by law, the collector must comply with this request. If they refuse, they are breaking the law under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and have no right to continue to try to collect. In fact, under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, if a collector contacts you by phone they have 5 days in which to send you formal written notice that you owe the debt. The notice must include the amount of the debt, the name of the creditor, and your right to dispute the debt, in writing, within 30 days of receipt of the notice.
There is no reason payday lending in its mainstream, visible form took off in the 1990s, but an important factor was deregulation. States began to roll back usury caps, and changes in federal laws helped lenders structure their loans so as to avoid the caps. By 2008, writes Jonathan Zinman, a economist at Dartmouth, payday-loan stores nationwide outnumbered McDonald’s restaurants and Starbucks coffee shops combined.
It may seem inconceivable that a company could not make money collecting interest at a 36 percent annual clip. One reason it’s true is that default rates are high. A study in 2007 by two economists, Mark Flannery and Katherine Samolyk, found that defaults account for more than 20 percent of operating expenses at payday-loan stores. By comparison, loan losses in 2007 at small U.S. commercial banks accounted for only 3 percent of expenses, according to the Kansas City Fed. This is not surprising, given that payday lenders do not look carefully at the borrower’s income, expenses, or credit history to ensure that she can repay the loan: That underwriting process, the bedrock of conventional lending, would be ruinously expensive when applied to a $ 300, two-week loan. Instead, lending to the borrower’s checking account-but if that’s empty due to other withdrawals or overdrafts, it’s empty.
WERTH: So far, so good. But I think we should mention two things here: one, Fusaro had a co-author on the paper. Her name is Patricia Cirillo; she’s the president of a company named Cypress Research, which is by the way, is the same survey firm that produced data for the paper you mentioned earlier, about how payday borrowers are pretty good at predicting when they will be able to pay back their loans. And the other point, two, there was a long chain of e-mails between Marc Fusaro, the academic researcher here, and the CCRF. And what they show is they really look like editorial interference.
be right because the data at least suggests that most people have a fairly good understanding of what’s going to happen to them.
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.
my fiancé has been getting phone calls from someone saying he is an official mike Johnson from 810-223-0563 said he got a loan for $ 300 over the internet but he did not. he applied for some loans but because his credit is bad and no bank account he could not get one. this guy says he got one but he told us where he was from and like most of you he had his name ss # where he works and is threating to have him arrested. We talked to a cop who said that if we had applied for a loan even over the internet they would have mailed out paperwork anyway with PAYMENT OPTIONS and how long you had to pay it back we got nothing and the pretend cop will not give us the It’s a good idea that we have a lot of money, but we have no money for it. what do you do when they keep threatening you and you have no idea what they are talking about.
Even though there may not be a lot you can do about the call, it may be worthwhile to file a complaint with your state attorney general and with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
Can they really throw a person in jail for 85 months and 7 years? We did have a payday loan and completely slipped. Our bank closed on us and this is probably why the check bounced off that place. What do you advise we do? I am freaking out … .. I asked for it in writing and they were refufed to give me a thier address and put me in touch with an officer for warrants.
Saying you’re going to be arrested for fraud because you have not paid your payday loan is a bogus threat. The fact that they have all this information about you does not mean it is a legitimate collection attempt. And the fact that you want to pay with a moneypack is a big red flag. I would suggest you turn the tables on them and report them to the Federal Trade Commission and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (consumerfinance.gov). Next time they call start the conversation by telling them you are going to record the call to deliver to law enforcement – and do so!
I’m really scared. We got this phone call from this legal processing center accusing us the 2 charges with the state and both of them are felonies according to anyone who said on the phone. That we will be thrown to jail for 85 months if we do not take care of the money … It was for a check 570 and now all the fees added up to 970 and how our case was turned to the state that is why they they call us … that they can issue a warrant for arrest if we do not care of the money …
Creditors are required to provide written verification of a debt within five days of contacting you. They also do not make threats they do not intend to keep – like filing charges. You can find more about your debt collection here:
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 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.
Creditors can not generally garnish your salary unless they take you to court and get a judgment first. Even then, there are restrictions on how much be garnished. I’m not sure of all the circumstances of your situation, but remember, a debt collector is required under the federal law to send you a written notice of the debt, and you have the right to request the verification of the debt if you dispute it. Any collector that will not abide by federal law is either a scam or can be sued for breaking the law.
I recently received a call from Joe Banks. The number he was calling from showed as unknown. He left me a message that was not professional and went to call my mom and sister. The number he left for me to call was 877-230-6756 for ACS. I did not provide them any information and ask that my sister and mother do the same. I will not pay money to anyone unless they provide something in writing as proof of the debt is mine.
