I’m glad to hear you are no longer panicking. Debt collectors can not have you hauled off to jail just because you can not pay your bills. What kind of debt is this? Do you have it Has this collection agency sent you anything in writing?
The same number has been harrassing my work place for the past two days. The breifly talked to him and told him that I would call him back after work hours. But no one answers. Now he’s talking to almost everyone here at my work claiming that they are cussing at him. I already told him to stop calling me work. That’s pissing me off, I do not know what else to do!

Be aware that some payday lenders have threatened garnishment in order to get borrowers to pay, even though they do not have a court order or judgment. If that should happen, you may want to seek legal assistance.
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.

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!
The APR on a short-term loan can vary greatly depending on how the APR is calculated, the duration of the loan, loan incurred, late payment fees, non-payment fees, loan renewal actions, and other factors. Keep in mind that the APR is not your finance charge and your finance will be disclosed later on, if applicable. See a See Representative Example
Some “purchases” made with a credit card of items that are viewed as cash are also considered to be cash advances in accordance with the credit card network’s guidelines, thereby incurring the higher interest rate and the lack of the grace period. These often include money orders, lottery tickets, gaming chips, and some taxes and fees paid to certain governments. However, if the merchant does not disclose the actual nature of the transactions, these will be processed as regular credit card transactions. Many merchants have passed on the credit card to the credit card holders in spite of
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.
There is a long and often twisted history of industries co-opting scientists and other academic researchers to produce findings that make their industries look safe or more reliable or otherwise better than they really are. Whenever we talk about academic research on this show – which is pretty much every week – we try to show the provenance of that research and establish how legitimate it is. The best first step in figuring that out is to ask what kind of incentives are at play. But that is only one step.
A payday loan is a short-term loan for an unexpected expense and is usually due to your next payday. Applying is fast and secure. In a few simple steps, payday loans can extend your budget to your next payday by offering the cash you need now.
In a vicious cycle, the higher the permitted fees, the more stores, the lesser customers each store serves, so the higher the fees need to be. Competition, in other words, does reduce profits to lenders, as expected – but it seems to carry no benefit to consumers, at least as measured by the rates they are charged. (The old loan sharks may have been able to charge lower rates because of lower overhead, although it’s impossible to know.) Mayer thinks the explanation may have more to do with the differences in the customer base: Because alternative alternatives were sparse back then, these lenders served a more diverse and overall more creditworthy set of borrowers, so default rates were likely lower.)
I just had my first run with one of these “companies.” I immediately knew that it was gibberish but decided to play along. They were immediately taken by the fact I have a British accent but continue their charade. I initially spoke with a woman and the number was 0000. Typically I do not pick up these strange numbers as I assume it’s some sort of scam but I had a itch. She picked up said something and immediately handed the phone over to another counterpart. He of course made claims to a loan I took out in 2008, I believe. Along with fraud check and two other false claims. I immediately said that I was only 16 than though he continued the pressure. Statements of we sent you multiple EMAILS, you’ll receive a summon, etc. After he continued to talk about me I said in a very naive way “He said in his absurdly thick accent” of course. “I than yelled” you such a person I I was a student of law and the likeliness of convincing me of any truth was impossible. “He continued to press me and I slyly said a remark in Spanish than hung up. The fact that I was 16 in said year and British alone should have made him end the call, very foolish tactic. They called me BACK RIGHT AFTER AS WELL. I can also complain of the heavy background noise, completely spineless people praying on Americans suffering through enough of a crisis as is. If I receive another call I will take some of these actions to try and help in ceasing this callous behavior.
It’s a good idea to call first and confirm what you will need. Our friendly associates will be happy to help!
I received a call yesterday from a law office stating that they were going to have me arrested for fraud and theft for not paying a payday loan. They said that it had been over 21 days since I made a payment and that if I wanted to go out of court that all I needed to do was put $ 385 on a green dot moneypak card by today. I have taken out two payday loans just recently and just had my first payment due on Friday which I paid. The number that they are calling from is 401-648-7325 by Lisa Green. She also said that the money had been deposited in my account and when they tried to pay out they were not able to. They also did not give me information on when the deposit took place and what company the payday loan was through. This sounds like a lot of the other posts that I have read but I do not want to take the chance of being arrested … what do I do ??

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.

Stating “they have already contacted your employer and we have their tax identification number.” When asked about the “debt” they kept referring to not showing up on my credit report; I was told that it was on there and she was looking at it right now. Once I said that I was monitoring my credit, she flipped
