I spoke with a lady named Savanna from the “Division of Processing”, who told me that I had On-Line Pay-Day Loan through Kenwood Services from 2010 that was unpaid and that it was determined that I did it with the intent to commit fraud money. The amount was for $ 420.00, but with fees added they were $ 1820.00 and additional court fees of $ 2500.00 would be added. When I began to ask questions (I thought that the account they claimed I put in the application was closed in 2008, and the address that was for me was 8 years old), she started to get angry with me. All I was doing was trying to get information about the original debt, which she could not give me. She also told me that I was going to be served in a criminal summary and prosecuted for Financial Fraud. When I started explaining to her the law about debt collection, the statute of limitation for legal action on such a debt, and that threatened me with crime action was indeed, illegal, she first told me “do not tell me how to do my job … “. Eventually, she hung up.
MARC FUSARO: The Consumer Credit Research Foundation and I had an interest in the paper being as clear as possible. And if anyone, including Hilary Miller, would take a paragraph that I had written and re-wrote it in a way that made what I was trying to say more clearly, I’m happy for that kind of advice. I’ve taken papers to the university writing center before and they’ve helped me make my writing more clear. And there’s nothing scandalous about that, at all. I mean the results of the paper have never been called into question. Nobody had suggested I changed any other results or anything like that based on any comments from anybody. Frankly, I think this is much ado about nothing.
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
This is too much for me at least. These are Indian scammers. They do not care and it’s a scam. They are out to get you. So I take that seriously. I found out a nicely loud sports air horn magic works. I blow it into the phone. Nobody dared to call me back and that was it. I shared this with a few friends and it worked. I guess they needed their other ear intact. So I guess they call someone else. If that is you, do the same. I am determined to send them to another career with one ear messed up. I do not care because they do not either if they manage to scam me.

said that if I agree to make three payments to settle the debt they would not take me to court. I agreed and made the first two payment, now I have a single payment and I do not have the money until next time I get paid which is a week from the due date. I tried to call the company that is taking the money out of my account to see if they would work with me and take the money out when i have it but i have to leave a message due to “high call volume” but never recieved a call back. My question is they can still take me to court and what’s the hood of them doing this?
Crystal – Old payday loan collection effort like this is very often scams. So you should proceed very cautiously and assume it is a scam unless they can really prove otherwise. Ask them to send you a written notice of the debt by snail mail, not email. (Email is too easy to be fake) it’s a good idea to get it out of the world.
I can not wait to talk to these jokers tomorrow and hear the BS. What type of process server would call and warn someone they were getting served on a specific day? Duh, they get paid only they serve the papers!
I received a call from Cyrstal from a restricted telephone line that she had papers to serve on my husband in the next day or to call this number 855-212-9406 to find out what it was about. I called and talked with Paul Landon who said it had to do with a payday loan and that if it was not paid, my husband would be served at work. He then went to say the amount was 1,100 but he could wipe it down to 580 if we would pay it right away and he would even let us pay it in 3 payments. I told him I had to talk to my husband and he said not to take as long as he was waiting to have him served and him arrested. Then he gave me his personal number which is 716-462-5680 and the company he works for is Outsource Legal Prep (but I just found this out but doing some internet search – and it seems to be owned by Kevin Walker). I’m glad to have found this out as at first I was scared but now since I know it’s scam I just called them back and told them not to call me back I know it’s a scam and I would turn them in to the proper authorities if they did. Thank you for posting this information.
Except to the extent of the federal Truth-In-Lending Act considers your ACH authorization “security” for the deferred deposit transaction, we take no collateral to secure the transaction. For example, we do not take a security interest in any real estate or personal property item.

A woman named “Cindy” from “RA Associates” left a message on my voice mail saying that the call was about a debt and that if I did not contact them

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.
Bob DeYoung makes a very complicated argument about the use of payday loans. Instead of “trapping borrowers in a cycle of debt,” as President Obama and other critics put it, DeYoung argues that payday loans can help people avoid a cycle of debt – like the late payment of your company company charges for an unpaid bill; like the overdraft fees or bounced-check your bank fees may charge you.
of a group called the Consumer Credit Research Foundation, or the CCRF, which is funded by payday lenders. Now, to be clear, Ronald Mann says that CCRF did not pay him to do the study, and did not try to influence his findings; but neither does his paper disclose that the data collection was handled by an industry-funded group. So we went back to Bob DeYoung and asked whether, maybe, it should have.
I was contacted by someone at my work number saying they are from Quick Cash who bought a debt from Cash Call saying they are coming to my work in an hour. I asked for their phone number and they would not give it to me. Just that if I did not pay over $ 1,000 today, they were coming to my work. They would not give me any information. Sounded like a call center. They said they had a case against me in the county where I live. Well, I work for a firm firm and look up online to see, there are no cases against me. How do I get them to stop when I have no phone number or information? Thank you!
country you will not have any luck with either.
Whatever you want to call it – wage deflation, structural unemployment, the absence of good-paying jobs – is not that a bigger problem? And, if so, what’s to be done about that? Next time on Freakonomics Radio, we will continue this conversation by looking at a strange, controversial proposal to make sure everyone’s got enough money to get by.
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.
Edit: I’ve seen that the original debt is “real debt,” and while the original debt may be real, even if you’ve paid in full and can prove it, it gets resold over and over. Check out John Oliver’s story. His show is investigated and these are small-time debt collectors depending on fooling people in paying to avoid legal action that rarely, if ever, happens. He bought $ 14 million in medical debt for $ 60k and erased it for thousands of people being harassed for debts that had been paid.
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.
First I looked up this 712th court crap and found that it is a site that allows people to print fake legal documents. I pasted this on my email and sent it to them. I also found the same letter on a website that was sent to me, so in my second email to
