So, the payday business model is not like pawn shop, where you surrender your valuable possessions to raise cash. To get a payday loan, you need to have a job and a bank account. According to Pew survey data, some 12 million Americans – roughly 1 in 20 adults – take out a payday loan in a given year. They tend to be relatively young and earn less than $ 40,000; they tend to not have a four-year college degree; and while the most common borrower is a white female, the rate of borrowing is the highest among the minorities.
Tami – what’s wrong with me is talking about “bad checks” – not about the fact that you have a debt. This makes me think they’re going to tell you that you’re going to be arrested for checking fraud if you do not pay. Again, ask them to send you a written notice of the debt required by the federal law – the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
When Britain threw out 23 Russian diplomats in response to an assassination attempt on Russian agent Sergei Skripal, Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia and the current bad boy of modern geopolitics, shrugged it off. With the relations between London and Moscow so strained, the embassy did not have all that much to do, anyway. The cost, Putin no doubt felt, was predictable and bearable. Then on Monday, 20 other countries, from Albania to Ukraine, joined in a coordinated expulsion campaign, with the United States accounting for 60 of the Russians sent packing. On Tuesday, NATO announced it would expel seven Russian diplomats in response to the poisoning. Suddenly, the Kremlin is not looking really so comfortable. With the Skripal hit, it looks like Putin may have finally overreached.

Ok update. Yesterday I received from the bank my statement for the year of the alleged payday loans and it only confirmed what I knew to be true, no transactions of any kind either at Payday loan deposit or any attempt to collect on it.
MANN: The data really suggests that there is a relatively small group of borrowers, in the range of 10 to 15 percent, who have been extremely heavy users, whose predictions are really bad. And I think that group of people seems to fundamentally not understand their financial situation.
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.
No Brittany p not being able to pay a debt will not land you in jail nor can not pay a debt fraud. They may be able to sue you for the debt, but if that happens you must be legally served with a notice of the lawsuit. Is this an old payday loan or are you back on a recent one?
Every lender in our network provides the user with specific terms, conditions, and practices prior to the consumer’s acceptance of the loan. We recommend that you carefully review the terms and conditions of any loan offer presented to you. For more details about our Rates & Fees and Lending Policy web pages.
In the end, if they can not answer your questions or validate the debt (in writing), it’s probably a scam. In which case you may not be able to do much about the call but you can report them to your local law enforcement, your state attorney general, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. You may even want to inform the caller that you have taken these steps.
DUBNER: OK, so this is interesting that a watchdog group that will not reveal its funding is going after an industry to try to influence academics that’s funding. So should we assume that CFA, the watchdog, has some kind of horse in the payday race? Do we just not know?
Paul – I know it’s not easy, but stop stressing. These guys are sitting in some of the country’s most popular people as they can. They can not hurt you. So understand that and do not let them scare you.
Anyone ever heard of Peter Shapiro or the Shapiro Agency? Telephone 877-723-4711. This ‘person’ has called two of my family members today and told them his agency was conducting a criminal investigation of me and needed a character statement. I’m sure this is the same as those who harassed me about a payday loan from 2006 to the point where I changed my cell phone number over a year ago. They were threatening criminal action then. My daughter asked if she was a debt collector and was told no. She looked them up on the internet and found, yes, they were collectors (of some sort). Now I have been paying my Chapter 13 for 50 months now with 4 more months to go. Any bill I owed is included in that bankruptcy. So you can believe this makes me furious! I’ve tried to call the number but I’m told to hold for Pete Shapiro and then asked to leave a voice message. I want to talk to this thing to voice. Any suggestions on who and how to complain about this thing?
WERTH: I was, and what he told me was that even though Hilary
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 of the court and where the court is and who is being taken to court for and for what reasons.
I worked for a credit bureau. If there is a dispute item on your credit report. You may have marked the dispute and the law of the FDCRA the credit bureau must be able to supply you with the verification of the debt within 30 days. If not it must be removed from your file.
This money, still no amount was disclosed, he just wanted my attorneys name because I had felony criminal charges against a very serious matter. Again I asked for it in writing and he got very hateful, asked me to hang on while he got his supervisor and the phone got disconnected. I called the number right back and it went to a voice message, again with no greeting, just leave your name and number. I thought it was all done, I received another call Nov 30 at my workplace, this time from Jack Thomas (again very heavy Indian accent) and he is supposidly with Kevin Peterson Law Agency in New York only the phone number was 516-847-4310 which is supposidly out of New York. I contacted my local police department at this time, gave them all 3 of these different phone numbers and they tried to call them but only to receive the “no-greeting” voice mail. So today, Dec 2 I get a call from Kevin Peterson, Attorney at Law out of San Francisco, Ca from 530-344-4624 Tell me he will have the local sheriff come to my place of work and serve me with papers, again Kevin has very broken english and very heavy Indian accent. The accusations they are making are awful, does anyone know what can be done. I am sick to death with this
Tricia – You can ask the “firm” for proof of the debt. By law, the company must provide this to you. The firm can not serve you. Understanding Your Debt Collection Rights. Scammers sometimes get their money by frightening people; try to stay calm, and do not be intimidated in paying money you do not have to.

Just received a call from 1-888-553-2372 She said she was with ADR firm and said they would have to contact a friend of mine who used to be her contact for a payday loan so they could get her address to serve her with papers for fraudulent checks.
Diane Standaert is the director of state policy at the Center for Responsible Lending, which has offices in North Carolina, California, and Washington, D.C. The CRL calls itself a “nonprofit, non-partisan organization” with a focus on “fighting predatory lending practices.” You’ve probably figured out that the CRL is anti-payday loan. Standaert argues that payday loans are often not used how the industry markets them, as a quick solution to a short-term emergency.
I have had three scams come to me. This has got to stop. They call my job and harass my boss and other people. How do they get your job phone number? ACS just scam me two weeks ago. Look out. Now I have a new one. Here is the phone number 760-269-3830. You know they have another country. You do not understand them. They just threaten you. Someone stop these jerks.
but here’s where weird the 671-933-7954 is a VOIP number that the name is not listed, the person said they are based in Miami. nothing comes up with this name But the kicker is IF I did not take out these Payday loans the bank account they have been active and never been closed so they would not be a reason they would not have been able to get the money.

The CFPB does not have the authority to limit interest rates. Congress does. So what the CFPB is asking for is that payday lenders either thoroughly evaluate the borrower’s financial profile or limit the number of rollovers for a loan, and offer easy refund terms. Payday lenders say even these regulations may just be put out of business – and they may be right. The CFPB estimates that the
I too have been getting these calls as of late. I took out a payday loan from Money and More back in 2008 and did it online for $ 300. I have since paid the loan back, but am now getting these calls as well. They are coming from multiple numbers in different states. The numbers I have are 631-247-9920, as well as the 716-299-0417 numbers and 757-275-8578. They are obviously using some system to be able to call from other numbers. I usually do not answer and call the numbers back to find out who they are and I go straight through a switchboard to an operator who refuses to tell me who they are or what they are calling from. They claim that there are “lots of companies in the building” and that they do not work for any particular one. Anyway
Shani – You should NOT pay a debt collector without first verifying the debt. Now that they know you will pay, they will probably intensify their efforts. I recommend you file complaints with your state attorney general office and the Federal Trade Comission. You may also have to call screening through your phone company if they will not stop calling you.
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?
I was contacted by these people
I was contacted by the same company and paid. Did not receive a receipt either. Then I contacted the company they said I supposedly owed the money to. The payday loan company looked up my info and said I had never had a loan with them and advised me to call my bank. My Bank is now going after PDLR group for fraud.
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 thought it was his first name that he was a process server and that ii was being prosecuted for fraud on a payday loan this person also called my family members and told them the same thing she said she was calling from ACS litigation i called and gave the I did not know what to do, but I did not have to say that they would like to have me. They also said when they tried to get paid the bank account was close and they said this was back in 2007 the number they used is 866-574-8858 they also said they would prosecute does anyone anything or can help me
In a typical handgun injury, which I diagnose almost daily, leaf bullet in laceration through an organ such as the liver. To a radiologist, it appears as a linear, thin, gray bullet track through the organ. There may be bleeding and some bullet fragments.
A debt collector is required by law to send you notification of the debt within 5 business days of that initial phone call. Once they do that you are entitled to request verification of the debt. Have you received anything in writing? Did you ask them to send you something in writing? If it turns out you think they are legit then you also want to check out the rules of limitations: Statute of Limitations On Debt Collection by State. Please be careful not to pay a debt you do not have.
going to be sent to court for “fraud” and continued to talk and talk and talk. But as I listened to her, I caught her in many lies. And on top of that she did not sound professional at all and kept repeating my name over and over trying to break me down. Then I asked to talk to the supervisor and she said, “I’m so scam” and I said, “I heard her whispering to someone else and then she came back on the phone and I told you that they are not a scam and I replied with “I can talk to your supervisor” and then she put me on “Hold” then I heard the phone being held up to a speaker so I could hear “elevator” music while I was being “transferred” to the supervisor. She finally transferred me to this guy saying that I could pay her with a gift card instead. I just said “I’ll think about if I want to pay you scam artists or not” then I hung up. Since then, I’ve gotten nothing.
from her again. I do not know if this is connected, but really regretting the small payday loan online in order to pay my rent when I was out of work. Now I do not know what I’m facing with the legal document threats and can not contact the source caller for information in order to try and resolve whatever is the issue. Now that I read the other postings, I’m not sure if I made a payment to a legitimate source either because just after making the loan random deductions started coming out of my checking account so badly that I had to shut it down. Hope my posting this information helps someone who is thinking about taking a chance with online payday loans, and thank you for the website to share and help others in such need.
Thank you very much for this site and answer to me because after reading some people stories I called him back and ask more questions then told him that I would handle it in court that would not be getting any money from me and hung up about 1 hour later got another call from a different number saying that I would be receiving a summons for court these people are a big scam smh.
