    I have been receiving calls off and on for about a year. Its always the same thing "I’ve taken out a payday loan in 2011" they have an old bank name I used to have several years prior and the last 4 digits of my social. They call from various numbers and sometimes multiple times a day. The call and leave an 844 or 855 number but I always redial and get the same person each time. They say there are 2 charges pending against me. Each time I ask for the company name, address, phone number and fax number. Sometimes they will give me the company name they are calling for and the name of the company they are calling about but always refuse contact information.It always ends in them accusing me of refusing to pay and "obviously not wanting to take care of my debts" and threats of reporting me for legal action. Last time I was able to get enough information from the woman to look up a tiny little building operating under an business name. I took it upon myself to send them a certified letter requesting they not call, to verify the debt, and threaten suit if they take further action without verifying the debt. I’ve hear nothing for a very long time until this week. Same voicemail leaving charge number and 855 number but calling from an instate number. I redial and get a man that claims to be a mediation specialist on behalf of a company trying to collect on a payday loan from 2011. He gives me last 4 of my social, old bank name and an email address that was semi-similar to one i used to have but all the address after the @ part was way off. I explained that I have been through this before and had requested verification in writing as permitted under the Fair Debt Collection Act. He says they sent me an email with the information several times and refused to give it in writing as they are not a collection agency and do not fall under the FTC laws. He begins to get loud and accuses me of "not wanting to take care of my debts obviously and he will report I am refusing to do so". I explain I did not refuse but that I dispute it and wish it to be verified. I eventually hung up. I’ve made complaints before but its always someone different, some new company and it NEVER stops. At one point they called my father about me and then he even started getting calls telling him he did the same thing.You block one number and another one pops up. Surely someone can stop this from going on and on and on

  2. Sherry Fowler says:

    Receive calls daily from different phone numbers linked to the same company, MPS or Map Processing Solutions. Stating that I owe a payday loan for 2013, using an address that I have not lived at for 10 years. They have even called my brother, my mother and my ex-husband, it is only a robo call, with my name and to hang up if this is not the person they are calling for. This is ridiculous!!

  3. Meryl Heitinga says:

  4. Jerry says:

    Received a call for the 10th time that I had a case pending against me for a payday loan that I never took out.
    The number that called was 844-829-7920. Why is there no way to track this and find these criminals? The time they are stealing from us is priceless. I hope karma delivers them justice.

  19. Sylvia says:

    Around Sept 25 2013 my grand daughter receive a call stating that she had written a bad check in 2010 to a Payday Loan company. They were threatening to swear out a warrant for her arrest if she did not send them 918.00 dollars by 5 pm. She called me I questioned her about it. She stated that she never wrote a check to a Payday loan. It was man calling and he had her SS# address and present place of work.

    They gave here information on were to send the money. I told her it sounded like a scam. Again on 10/1/2013 she responded to this call and was told that to avoid policeman co.Inge to her job she needed to send the money by 5 pm. She called husband at work and me. I went to the apartment where they live.

    She also reported that she had received calls from Metro police Dept. It was 862 number which is the prefix. She talked to someone who identified himself as officer Martin. Her husband then told her that the apartment manager report to him that the police had been out there looking for her the day before. She also said that her mom said the police had been calling her house looking for her. We went to Walmart and went as far as filling out the form to send money to Johnson and Johnson Financial.

    I handed my granddaughter my card. Then I noticed the SCAM sign in front of the cash register. A police officer was on his way out of the store and I desired to stop him and ask for his advice. He explained that it sounded like a scam also needed to check it out before sending money. Went to the Criminal Justice Center and was told to return home then call the non emergency number. We did as told. The Police officer came out to my house and took a report. My granddaughter was still very upset about the whole deal. While waiting on the police to come out we looked up Johnson and Johnson. In Jacksonville Florida. We called the Chamber of Commerce and the. BBB also in Jacksonville Florida. Reported this to the. Found that the phone area code that the man was calling from. Was from Washington . The metronome Nashville Tn police made out a report a d gave us a very valuable lecture.

    We were just SWIPE away from sending a criminal 918.00 dollars. I am so thankful for the outcome. I watch American Greed and will encourage family and fiends to watch. Will also hive them ck out this Webb site. This needs to spread like wild fire.

  20. MICHAEL GHEE says:

    I WAS APPLYING FOR A PAYDAY LOAN, USING AN "https://" website, I GOT A CALL FROM THIS WOMAN SHIRLEY WHO HAD MY INFORMATION AND SAID I WAS APPROVED FOR VARIOUS AMOUNTS. SHE SAID THAT SINCE MY CREDIT SCORE WAS LOW, I NEEDED TO PROVIDE CASH ASSUARANCE BY WAY OF A "RELOADIT CARD", WHICH THEY WOULD USE TO VERIFY THAT I HAD ATLEAST $200 IN MY BANK ACCT. SHE SAID THEY WOULD CHECK THE AMOUNT BY MY GIVING HER THE "PACK NUMBER" WHICH WAS ON THE BACK. THIS NUMBER ALLOWS THE RELOADIT CO TO TRANSFER AND RE-FUND THE CARD. WHEN I GAVE HER THE NUMBER AFTER I BOUGHT AND FUNDED THE CARD FOR $200.00, SHE SAID THE MANAGER WOULD CALL ME BACK TO AUTHORIZE THE LOAN FUNDS AND THEY WOULD SEND DOCUMENTS FOR ME TO COMPLETE. AFTER 1 HOUR I GOT A CALL FROM THE MANAGER NAMED JOHN WHO SAID THE BANK WIRE FEES ARE NOW $ 172.00 AND I HAD TO PAY THAT BEFORE THEY WOULD RELEASE THE DOCUMENTS AND THE LOAN MONEY. SINCE THIS WASN’T PART OF MY INITIAL DISCUSSION WITH SHIRLEY, I ASKED FOR MY MONEY BACK ON MY RELOADIT CARD, AS THEY HAD TRANSFERRED IT TO AND ACCOUNT ENDING IN # 7816. JOHN SAID HE COULD NOT RETURN MY $200.00 BUT OFFERED TO REDUCE THE WIRE FEE TO $ 117.00, OR REFUND $ 28.00 BACK INTO MY CHECKING ACCOUNT. WHEN I REFUSED HE DISCONNECTED.

    01/09/13

    I was scammed/robbed by a loan company.

    01/07/13
    I received multiple calls in the last few weeks from a New York phone number (347) 509 2358 saying I was approved for a 10k loan. I finally thought I could consolidate my debts and have one payment monthly…and this would help my credit and get me back on track since I am working two jobs and can’t make ends meet right now.
    I decided to take out 5000 and they said all I would need to do is show proof of income by loading a credit reload card and giving them the code to receive than put back onto the loan for a total of 5200 to be deposited into my account within 40 minutes.
    I walked through the procedure and they said for me to give the banking information to transfer the funds…. and then I will be paying 229/month for 24 months to pay back the loan with a 10% interest. I will call you back in 40minutes to let you know that the money is in the account. An hour passes so I check in and now I have someone else on the phone because the first agent mislead me and now I need to load up another 350 for insurance purposes. I argued that was not told to me and unfair. Grahm Smith the transaction manager, said that he would lower it to 137.00 if I could get it to them by tomorrow. I have to borrow money from my friend just to be able to do this and now…I follow instructions and they say my money is at Western Union. I go with the Money Transaction Code, and they said there was no transfer. I call and Grahm all the sudden is unavailable. He says he will call me back and let me know what was going on, but he never calls. I get ahold of another agent after 10+ phone calls and he stutters on giving me his name. At this point I know I have been scammed. Now, I have since made 25+ phone calls and have gotten nothing but a recording, a disconnection, or a hang up.
    Every time I called it was a foreign accent and it sounded like a loud call center. with I hear agents talking in the background dealing with the same issue. Every person I talked to stuttered when giving their name. My last conversation with Grahm Smith, he was rude and hung up on me.

  22. Janet says:

    I have received calls from 2 numbers: 713-219-9219 in TX. & 754-551-9419 in FL. The callers have very strong foreign accents and it is hard to tell exactly where they say they are calling from, but it concerns my being approved for the loan that I recently applied for. I think the amount they stated was $3000. I have not applied for a loan…obviously a scam. When I told them that I knew they were trying to scam me and that I didn’t want anymore calls, they hung up. But, then they called back twice in less than 5 minutes to hassle me. I have blocked the numbers.

  23. joann says:

    i received a phone call from this # 1-303-309-0765waqs wondering if u can tell me if this is a phone scam saying i owe 1589,95 from back in 2011 threated to have me arrested if it wast pd-please an info is appreciated

  24. Debbie says:

    I have been receiving phone calls from a company stating I owe them money for a loan they deposit in my account on 10/10/2011. My checking account shows no such transaction and I sent the company a copy of the checking acct. showing that nothing was put in my account. It was a good thing the account was closed in 2012. They continues to harass me, I have blocked all their numbers and then I receive a phone call on 4/1/2014 the person a woman, stated she was an investigator for Ashland Associates and that I owe money to Smart Loan and Tnt loan, they contacted my sister and son, not sure how they got any of our numbers, they also have my social security number. The phone numbers they are calling from are 855-267-9405, 704-220-1705.855-245-0089, 855-245-0082

  25. Christy says:

    I have been receiving phone calls from a company stating that I have a claim filed against me for check fraud and will be arrested if I do not settle immediately. The main phone# they call from is 855-245-0089, but another is 855-245-0082. They get very rude and angry when I advise them that I know this is a scam and offer to provide my attorney information and hang up, but they call back repeatedely after this. Unfortunately I do not have a block option on my phone, but have learned to ignore the calls.

  26. amie smith says:

    have received several calls from 202-783-1131. indian or asian accent. said im approved for a federal loan. another green dot card scam! I have told them several times not to call me any more, have told them i know they are a scam, and they persist in calling . . even wanted to speak with one of my children!

  28. Marsha says:

    I received a phone call from #210-762-6530 saying I owe for a payday loan I took out in 2012. They threatened to supeona me and have me arrested if I did not settle the amount right then. I have no such payday loan debt and besides that, payday loans cannot criminally go after you for failure to pay. Additionally, if that had been the case, they would not have waited 2 years to contact me. This is totally a scam, but be warned they are very good. Totally scare the he!! out of you.

  30. Sarah says:

    Received a call that stated "we are very concerned for you and will need to speak with you immediately." Received several calls, back to back. I called back after listening to the voicemails. The phone rang 10x and an automated answering service picked up the line. It did not state the name of the business just stated to leave a message. I did not leave a message, however a call was immediately returned. I spoke with a lady and she asked if she could verify information. She them stated that she needed to connect me to a compliance officer. Once on the phone with "Frank Watson" he was able to provide me with very detailed information including : banking institution, previous address, current address, previous employer and social security number. After giving me that information "Frank" stated that I owed $790 immediately or I would need to surrender to authorities or they would come to my residence and detain me this evening. He told me that he would give me an hour to call family to get the money paid. He then offered me to pay 60% and finish the payment within 30 days. Before hanging up he wished me the best and said he wanted me to resolve this issue. If I did not resolve the issue within hours I would be detained on a level 3 felony. Please excuse the misspelled words and poor grammar. I am unable to edit this post. Sarah Austin/Houston Texas

    Alright people threaten to report them to the Better Business Bureau and the Federal Trade Commission. This is a very highly illegal form or coercion. They only call right, you don’t receive anything in the mail? Tell them to mail you a bill so you know what company it is then look them up on the BBB website. If yo find them file against them. If you don’t find them call the police!!! They do say they are calling from the check fraud division and they want to argue with you if you call them on their FRAUD they argue or just plain hang up on you. Whatever you do, don’t give them any information. Most calls will be coming from a local area code. Once you block a number they start calling you from another one. Most likely these calls are coming from an untraceable prepaid cell phone.

The money has not been deposit into my checking account along with the $150 verification fee. The person used the name Kevin SMITH at (202) 241-7715 ext 785.

  34. Devin says:

    I’ve also had these criminals call phone repeatedly 10 times a moth going on 3 months now. Soon I’ll have to change my number it’s an incredible inconvenience- don’t answer their calls

  35. Terri S says:

    I received a phone call at work from an Emma Ventina from a company called API, saying her phone number is 210-762-6530. She stated that she had an affidavit in her office with my social security number. I had to call her back immediately. I DO NOT respond to anyone who cannot mail me a copy of a bill to my home address and I never give out any bank information over the phone. I have been scammed before and you will NEVER see your money again. Hang up on these people or DO NOT answer their calls. If I do not know the phone number, I let them leave a message.

    ezcashnowinmin@gmail.com
    I received an email from this address stating I was approved for a $5,000.00 loan and need to contact them! I called the number listed @ 484 525 6755 and spoke with Eric Gordon. He stated that I would need to show validation in my account of the first payment of $175.00 in order to verify that I was able to make the required monthly payments. Once the money was available I was asked to load the money on a green dot card and that there would be a $4.95 charge to do this once loaded I was to call the same # back and give them the # on the back of the card. I did this and called back and was directed to Kevin Wright which in return said that the company needed an additional $325.00 verified to equal 10% of the loan being a total of $500.00 to be verified. He assured me that once I did this the money for the loan and the $500 would be sent to my account. I was then called after 45 min by a Hugh Foster stating that they were unable to transfer the money into my account and I would have to go to a western union to pick it up. Because of this method I would need to pay $220.00 for them to send it. I paid this amount, called them back and spoke with Hugh Foster again he said he would call me back in 15 min with the confirmation code to use at the western Union to pick up the transactions. He never called back so I panicked and called back . No answer. I called 10 more times still no answer. I know I have been scammed now, but in my defense these gentlemen were very good at what they did. The email I received had attached documents that stated the terms of the loan, payment, percentage and length of the loan. I felt it was a true loan company as I was looking for a loan to fix my credit!

    On 8/22/14 I received a call from Veronica Boris and a Kathy Edwards from NSC collection . Stating that I have a outstanding payday loan from bottom dollar payday loan..

I spoke with a woman which stated that I was being charged for fraud against I financial institute. And that I need to make arrangement before the end of business day. After speaking with her.

  47. Jim and Bonnie Dirodricco says:

    Hello,my husband and I, Jim and Bonnie Dirodricco were also scammed by a payday loan company but before we gave any money we questioned them about the company in which they would not give any information. The man said he was Officer Smith and if we didn’t pay a warrant would be out for my husbands arrest.When we told them that we going to contact our lawyer he hung up.I call the number and it is busy, the area code was from Texas 832 please beware.

  48. Glamazon says:

    Please be aware of these folks! They claim to be american Financial Group from Cincinnati ohio! yeah right Mr Dawood Smith is a fake his number is 513-223-5675 they will offer you a loan and then tell you in order to get the money you have to purchase a green dot money card if it’s legitimate you never have to give money to get money this is a lie and they say it’s to guarantee the first payment! then they tell you to get another green dot card to pay for the western union transfer into your bank account! please don’t be fooled they will take your hard earned money and you will get nothing in return. they are lies and fake. the address they gave was a hotel 508 east 4th street. I hope and pray they get caught for this. this has caused a lot of heart ache and grief!

  49. deb b says:

    Recieved a call from a mr. Stern he left a message..called the number which they answered hello. I asked where i was calling they said Jackson n Jackson attorney of law..they said i owed a payday loan in the amount of 1990.00 in 2013…but could not give me the origanal amount n the name of there client…I had a paday loan which i paid off n verified that i did..so i belive this is a scam because they said i could settle Over the phone n it wouldnt go to court..i told them lets take it to court the said ok n hung up..snyone had the same experience ?? Or heard of these people..

  50. jen says:

    Ha i had the exact same thing happen a few months ago. I told them take me to court too;-) haven’t heard from them since! I also stated repairing my credit and i get fraud protection free.
    Be wise too about usa financing who says they are involved with greendot money cards They will say you’re approved for 1500.00 up to 7000.00 and you can get the money in 10 min AFTER you put 198.00 on a greendit money refill pak .They tell you someone from greendot will call in 15 min to verify funds so you never have to worry about losing it. However, the 800 number the person from "green dot"calls from is a non return call number. The company usa financing says green dit has lots and lots of 800 numbers that dont receive calls only makes them. THIS IS NOT TRUE! Watch out fr theze people….th loan documents they send youlook VERY REAL however read ths wording….ex: our & hour…they say within the our and receive your "money cash".
    Please don’t be taken! If it feels wrong DONT DO IT., the universe is warning you that’s why you get that feeling.

  56. Mrs lambdy says:

    This just happened to us the lady Jennifer with a local area code said that we would be charged with malicious intent to defraud a bank for a payday we never had. She wouldn’t send me any paperwork.

  57. Shekka says:

    There are people all around the world asking to put between $100 and $400 on a Green dot card. One of them was named Adam Ryan. Another called saying something about eliminating payday loans. If it is you that’s their next victim, don’t fall for it. If it’s that real, payday loan companies don’t ask for anything upfront

  62. Fitil says:

    A loan company naming themselves as Loans and Credit Solutions ltd are scamming.. Asking for Ukash vouchers to process your loan then taking your money and proving no loans at all… These are people out to scam everyone and have no intention of sending loans at all. Stay clear

  65. Lisa says:

    was called on 4Nov14 and was told i took out a payday loan back in Aug of 2008. Which at the time I was overseas. They threatened me with lawsuit and when asked for documentation he got mad at me and started telling me "this is life" and that even if i was not the one that did it my name was on the check. when asked what was the bank he gave me my ex-husbands bank not mine. He also sent me a settlement letter that he wanted me to sign since i did not sign he called me today 12Nov14 and got mad when i told him to send the so called documentation to my local Police Department. His information is Anthony Ervin and claims he is from Alvarez Sinclair Associates (when googled nothing shows up) the two numbers that he has called me from are 888-339-7797 and 888-541-5077….
    when i contacted my local police they told me just to hang up on them and that their are several of them out there.

  67. Geneva Richards says:

    Received a call today from Capital Providence regarding a 2008 payday loan thru cashnet usa. I had paydays loans back during that time. I gave my card info and told them they could process it on 11/28. After doing some research after the call, I went to my local sheriffs office and city police department and was advised to cancel my debit card. Went to my bank and cancelled the card before they could take the money. Won’t fall for that one again. I called the company back to get the docket number they were referencing and was transferred, left on hold for 10 minutes and the call dropped. When I tried to call back my call was directed to a generic voice mailbox. Be wary of Capital Providence.

  68. Tony Rummell says:

    Anyone get a call from 406 545 2121 about a payday loan?

  69. Educated Law Girl says:

    Today, December 5, 2014 at 1:30 pm PST. I just received a phone call from a company called Capital Providence 562-553-3116, and since I’m always being wary of anything (former government auditor), I double check everything before I even respond. The automated call was very aggressive in tone (my first cue that this was a scam), and threaten a bench warrant to be issued against me for failure to press #9 to speak to a representative (cue 2, I have a law degree and I know the law); therefore, I hung up and decided to research this and found you guys. Amazing how they got my phone number as I am unlisted everywhere, but I’m going to really watch my credit report and happy that I have alerts for any suspicious activity. Please report this to the FBI hotline by filing a complaint online with our Internet Crime Complaint Center or by using our online Tips and Public Leads form; and you can find it here at http://www.ic3.gov/complaint/default.aspx or here at http://www.fbi.gov/scams-safety/e-scams/e-scams

    I have been having someone call from 844-395-3960 Saying that if I don’t call or my legal lawyer. Action will be taken and the is a documentation number that is pre recorded.

  76. sm says:

    Received call from 303-309-9844, asking to return a call to 844-228-6340. They stated I owe a payday loan, which I have never had in my life. They are threatening legal action and they also threatened to serve me at my CEO’s house after they call them directly. These people are ruthless, and full of crap. They tried to get me to verify information which I did not do. I told them if they actually had paperwork for me to bring it to me. She just wished me "good luck" as I hung up. I searched for the (303) number and nothing came back, I searched for the 844 number and nothing came back. I called back to get the name of their company and it is Capital, Harris, Miller & Associates. I searched for them and found that they are in the BBB with an "F" rating and also they are NOT accredited. Do not disclose any information. Always ask for information in writing. They supposedly have all your addresses (home, work) so make them supply the information.

  77. teresa says:

    Today, January 6, 2015 I got a phone call from 469.250.2098 from Jessica Lane? NO name of company. Only that she is in possession of "documents" for two counts of check fraud. And that they were going to send the information to my "local" sheriff’s department and serve the address associated with my phone number, if I did not respond. Well good luck! Firstly, I dont write checks. Secondly, I moved. And Thirdly, if they were a reputable legal agency, they would know the name of my county. The worst part is, they called my father in Tennessee. This is not the first time I have been a target for fraud. I got this same phone call last year…nothing ever happened and I never responded. I also got a threatening phone call from the "IRS". It was not the IRS. I did speak to that guy. I let him right quick and in a hurry that I knew he was a fraud and that I was calling the IRS. He hung up and I never heard back from him. My advice, is do not pay ANY money over the phone, do NOT give them your banking info EVER. DEMAND that they send you in writing proof of your debt. This is a legal requirement of the Fair Debt Collection Act. Even if you know or think you know you owe them, make them put it in writing. Protect yourself and create a paper trail. IF they refuse, you know right then its fraud. A reputable collection company will not refuse to send you valid proof of a debt owed. And do not accept it via email. Demand it be mailed via the US Postal Service.

  78. Scott B says:

    I received the same calls re: owing a payday loan. Today I got a call from "VA-Loans" a lady with a thick Indian accent preceeds to tell me my correct ss#, bank routing #, correct account # and dob and address. She said if I send her company $250 for insurance I am approved for a $10,000 loan. Anyone else get this after applying for a loan online?

  79. Mom says:

    The guys name is Martin Riley, from Capital Providence. Called a member of my family. Tried calling him back and asking his address, but he wont answer. The first time you get these kind of calls ask for their address, you want to come in and talk to them. Its amazing how quick they hang up, and if they call back tell them to speak up, your recording for Police Dept.

  80. joann says:

  81. CJ says:

    Myself and many of my family members have received calls from Martin Riley and Natalie Price aka Ashley Miller aka who knows what other names she is using. Leaving messages threatening they are going to file a legal complaint against me. Since I have nothing to hide and know this is a SCAM I filed a police report naming them as possible suspects in identity theft ring and gave my local police department the numbers they have called from 909-245-1983 and 844-248-1983. those are only the 2 numbers out of various numbers they use to call people. I encourage you to file an identity theft report with your local police department and get these people off the streets.

    On January 14 2015 I received a voicemail on my cell phone from an unknown number. This person said he was Antiowan Davis a process server with a summons for me to go to court on bad check fraud. I was directed to immediately call 1 617 208 900, and 1 800 955 7070 in Massachusetts to clear it up. He was very threatening and accused me of writing bad checks over state lines with a loan online. He duped me into paying 600 out of my bank account. I reported this to the police department.

  84. Theresa says:

    On January 15th I received a call from a person identifying himself as Corey Butler.He stated that he had a summons for me to appear in court and unless I contacted him to clear the matter up I would be prosecuted to the fullest. When I called back it went to a personal voice mail.Since I had been scammed
    before I didn’t fall for it.

  85. JP says:

    I received a call from 352-277-5636, this time it was a Martin Riley, says he is an investigator with Capital Provident or Providence with a message, saying that there is a "civil matter" pending against me tied to my drivers license and social security number, and if I or my attorney wist to make a statement to the plaintiff, to call their legal department immediately, or press any key to be connected. I called back and a message said that if I my call is regarding a pending court appearance to contact my jurisdiction or if I was called and knew the extension number to dial it now. The original message left did not leave an ext. # to dial.

    I keep getting calls from Global Recovery saying I owe them money. The have a 406-559-3219 number then they call from 1-800-824-0585. They call my work and I never answer the phone. I owe no money I checked with my bank etc. Louise Brinkman

  88. Kat Capp Hum says:

    I received 10 calls yesterday, asking for Jaleel… I’m not Jaleel! I’ve told them repeatedly, "you have the wrong number", but they ignored, me and continued to call and harass me! Their pitch was, "you have been approved for a payday loan!" They continue to call, and harass me despite the fact, I have told them, "I am not interested!" Do I have to change my number?

  89. lakesha says:

    Earlier this morning I received an call from an unavailable number about some lady who didn’t make herself know calling bout she needs to speak with me about some documents she have for me.i hung up on her she steadying calling back I let the phone ring.around 6 my brother call me saying some lady called me saying she has a petition on her desk for me.i never used his number for anything they are also calling other relatives out the blue about me.which I have no clue as to what’s going.i Google all the numbers they leave for me to call there’s no info coming get up just things where people reporting scams 1-855-990-8657

  90. Shannon says:

    I received a voicemail from Martin Riley Investigators claiming there was a civil matter attached to my phone number and social security number. When I play the message there is no return number to call. I have been thru something very similar about 5 years ago. I didn’t believe what they were telling me and I called the police. The police tried to reassure me it was a scam and the officer also gave me the number of an attorney to contact. The attorney contacted the alleged lawyer harassing me and asked for the lawyers Bar# (every lawyer has one and none are duplicated). The Ba# given to my attorney was of a deceased CA. Lawyer. The harassing lawyer disconnected the call once my attorney confronted him. It pays to do your research.

  91. Sheryl says:

    I received a telephone call from Martin Reilly asking for someone by the name of Martin Mendoza! I don’t know anyone by that name! So I tried to call the number and got a busy signal! The number is 310-299-0124!

  92. kim says:

    909 245-8070 is the one of many numbers used by Capital Providence and Martin Riley. Total scam, do not give him any personal info or money

  93. Colleen says:

    Received several calls James Lopez: referencing a claim # and that he was assigned to a investigation request on my where-abouts and location. I should Call Atlantic 877-264-5052. It was in reference to a payday loan from 2011. ?? they said I received the money but they were unable to get it back out. This is not truth. I didn’t get an online payday loan and if I did and didn’t pay it back I would believe i would hear something within 4 years. They called my cell, work and moms phone. I told them I spoke to the Federal trade commission and they needed to provide me the information in writing and she told me that I could use their online portal to receive the information. Due to the time restriction,there would not be time to mail it. Really? Time restriction? Its been 4 years! So I said I didn’t have online access and I would contact the FTC again to find out the rules for me to get the documents in the mail. Have not heard from them since.

  94. TeeTee says:

    I received a call from Kevin from 3476271160. He stated that he was contacted by my lender to collect all money owed from my outstanding loan. He wanted all payments from the agreement set up with me made via Money pack. I paid $350 so far. There’s no paper trail. I’m so upset. I basically handed him my money. I was informed tonight about this scam. I will be contacting him in the morning to make him aware that I am on to him. Please beware of the money pack cards and the money grams to false accounts.Lesson learned

  95. K Nelson says:

    I received a ph call from Martin Riley from Capital providence advising me there is a civil matter with the review board with my social security number I need to call with my attorney to give a statement num called me was 636-333-9073 SCAM!

I called number and no one answer, my girlfriend is FBI agent who has advised this is sscam. Please do not call them or send any money. FBI is investigating,

  97. Pam says:

    Got a call from Martin Riley saying the same as everyone else…investigator for Capital Providence blah, blah the number was from Carmel IN. 317-660-4630

  98. Michelle says:

    I received a call from someone claiming they were from a law firm and representing Alliance pay day loans. This person said that I took out a payday loan in 2011 and that I now owed 2800.00. This was a complete scam as I never took out a payday loan for 350.00 in 2011 over the Internet. The person claimed that the "lead attorney" was going to take me to court. The scary thing was they had all of my banking information and my social security number.

  99. Melissa Messner says:

    I have received a message from a Dawna Robinson from 203-679-1887 looking for my location and where abouts and I have chosen to not contact them in regards to claim #405440 and to contact Atlantic 877-264-5052.

  101. d. f. says:

    I received multiple calls from 808-215-0005 over the past week. The caller, "Investigator Martin Riley" from "Capital Providence," states there is a civil case with my personal info attached to it (name and SSN). The first few calls were left on my voice mail and instructed me to call their claims department (but left no callback number). The message also instructed me to push any key if I wanted to speak to their claims department (it’s a rabbit hole that just keeps telling me to enter the number of the person I want to speak with). I finally decided to answer one of the calls, but it was a recording (the same statement that was left on my voice mail). A co-worker also experienced a similar series of calls.

  102. EINA P says:

    Someone from Advance Credit Capital Solutions called about a company called Triple Services LLC. threatening for me to call or ask a lawyer to call them. After Googling and reading comments on the above this is FRAUD!! They mentioned I talked to a Mark Carey. I know of no such conversation. I do remember a loan with them but they committed fraud on my old bank accounts when they would hit my account and overdraft it atleast 2times a day on some occasions. They called my Aunt’s home number of whom I don’t even live with.

    I received a voice message a few minutes ago from 732-399-9472. It appears to be an automated call on behalf of Martin Riley who seems to be the Attorney handing "my case". Trouble is, this is indeed a scam!

    I can’t take it, these people are sitting around doing nothing constructive with their lives only thinking of ways to get into your wallet!

    SCAM ALERT! SCAM ALERT! SCAM ALERT!!!!!!

  105. Linda says:

    Received a call fro "payday loans" saying my loan has been approved. I connected with a real person and he started to tell me my loan is approved. I said I never applied for anything. And demanded to know why they were calling. He said my name and then said someone from my address applied for this loan. I told them that’s impossible and if it came from this location how was it submitted, via phone, Internet or mail? He said I will have to connect you to my supervisor. Then he switched me off and a recording said "this phone is not taking messages. Goodbye" and it disconnected me. I tried to call the number back and no one answers the phone. The cable carrier told me to call the police and the police won’t even take a report. Phone number is 415 358 0611.

  106. Linda R Platt says:

    I went online Mar 15, 2015 and applied for a loan to help with closing costs on a house I was buying. The next day I got a call from Advance America and was told I was approved for up to 5000.00. I was to go to a money gram area at Walmart and load 185.00 on a prepaid card and once they got the reference number they would then give me the loan. Two hours later they needed 300.00 for a credit score, and another ref number. Then they came back and said I needed to pay 407.00 to bump my score up. All total I paid over 1500 and they want more. Plus they want 125.00 to cancel the whole thing and get my money back. But if I did cancel then I was threatened with it effecting my credit score and any possible online loans for 2 years.

  107. Evelyn D says:

    On 3/19/15 I received a call from a Charles Douglas saying he needed my address in order to deliver my ‘claim’. He provided me with a name and number to contact to see what this was about. The number I called was 877-407-2592 which is FMR (Forward Movement Recovery) and I spoke with a Jeff O’Brien. They claimed they were hired to collect a payday loan that I took in 2011 which was never repaid. I never took a payday loan and why would someone wait 4 years before collecting on a loan? When I looked up this company I could find out nothing about them. They claimed to be in West Seneca, NY. I contacted the police in West Seneca as well to report his. They told me if I didn’t clear this up, I would get into further trouble and end up owning more money (accumulated interest). I asked for specifics, but only got a standard (looks like fake) email from them with only a general claim number and a name of the place where the original loan was taken (which also cannot be found on the internet). Definitely know I’ve been scammed.

  108. Shannon Lashley says:

    Been getting a call from ‘Atlantic Consumer support’, says they are from Tempe Arizona but will not give me an actual address. I asked for them to send me a hard copy of the original loan. Gave excuse that they were completely paperless. They gave me a site to go to; openconsumer.info; Info on that site just said I took out a loan in 2011 with Seven Group llc. I don’t recall any of this. I do know that my ID has been compromised since 2012. Anyone have any info on these 2 groups?

  109. Sarah Graves says:

    Just got a call from 614-407-0900 and 614-385-7091 from a private investigator from Advanced LLC saying that I was going to be arrested within 24 hours in the county I live in for defrauding a finanacial company. They claimed they were the firm this financial company hired to offer representation and that if I would pay them they would take my name off the list so I wouldn’t be arrested. I could get no information from them as to a phone number to call this supposed company directly and received nothing in the mail. I am 85 with a heart condition and certainly didn’t need this scam. Don’t ever give out a credit card or debit card # to these slimeballs.

  110. Elias Olivve says:

    On 3/24/15 A relative of mine, who shares my first name, notified me of phone call received regarding a case linked with my Social. I called back the following day, March 24, 2015, and spoke with Diego Rios who works for FMR (Forward Movement Recovery) – which according to them they are not a collection agency but rather a credit guarantor that specifically handles breaches in contracts. Diego informed me of a payday loan i supposedly took out in 2011 from a company that goes by " Access Holdings,’ though runs off many sister brands with different names, and therefore could not specifically tell me which sister company i had supposedly borrowed the amount of $500 from. He began confirming the email address used, the last four of my ss, the last for digits of a supposed bank account and my name. All of which seemed to be pretty accurate, however was non existent at the time (2011). I was then transferred to Angela ext. 303 and she basically reiterated what Diego had said but with more words. I told her i had no recollection of such happenings. She said she was going to take it up with her superiors.

    I then researched the name and was brought to this website where i read the message posted on March 21 with a similar experience, I called the number provided on the post and asked for the same person "Jeff o brain" the fellow who answered, john sullaven (the "psyc" who can pick up on voice intonation to figure one out), said he was out of the office and claimed to be his supervisor which could help me with my issue. I played dumb and acted as if this was my first call and tried to have him explain to me the facts of the matter, he too reiterated the same info as the angela and diego, though he sounded a bit hesitant. as there was probably some notes taken down of my previous call. The discussion followed into an argument of childishness and soon after he finally hanged up.

    I called Angela right back, though was transferred to her voice mail (877) 482-0779 ext. 303

    I left her a msg regarding the incident with john sulluvin, the chaman.

    I hope this matter is just an intent of a scam and ends here without it escalating into a more serious matter.

  112. Stacy says:

    Got a call from Atlantic (collection agency) saying I borrowed from Highland Group. I never did that, and they had a lot of information wrong as well. The number is 877-872-0090, awful people. They tried to be aggressive and would barely let me speak.

  113. Amy says:

    I received a call from an Investigator Mitchell. She Did not have a foreign accent. She said they were going place felony fraud charges against me for a delinquent pay day loan and the check that bounced to the company I’m October 2012. I was horrified thinking it might be identity theft. I called our local sheriffs office and spoke to a real investigator. He assured me that it a scam. The number came up as no caller id and the number she gave me to call back was an 844 number. They also operate under the name cooper financial. She never said the name of the lawyers she that she works for.

  114. Andrea says:

They event gave me a case # vol866084. But when I called back. they said I had money put in my account in 2014 and then closed my account. when I asked for information they talked in circle and would not provide any information. I need to pay to settle out of court $750.00 or wait to be served. I said, I need to be served .they hung up and would not answer again when I called back.

  116. .Jorge A Hernandez M says:

    Today I received a phone call from a company that make recoveries. They I owe $850.00 for a pay loan that I made in August 2011. They will sue me if I do not made the pay. But they said the loan was deposited in my bank acct. but I have all my bank statements since 2010 and no money was deposited in my a act. I spoke with Diego Rios and H e asked to send my bank statements and my address. I am sure I do not any money .this man said his company is in New York 1902 Rich Rd Ste 115′, West Seneca. I have been investigating and I found that more people have been called and treated to be sue if they no pay

  117. Linda says:

    Got a call from 678-263-3133. A man named Mike West gave me a case number and transferred me to a Ms.Lee who was supposed to be an investigator. They claimed I had defaulted on an online payday loan. I was told a warrant had been issued for bank fraud and two other charges. All false claims. Have been contacted by email as well.

  118. renee says:

    Rcvd a call from 406-209-0300, said they were trying to locate me due to fraud charges against me. They said I would be arrested at my home in 24 hrs without calling Atlantic at 866-695-0678 and giving them my case #. I have already reported them to Montana State, they assured me this is a scam. The representative for State of Montana said one sure fire way to know it’s a scam is if they treaten to arrest you. The charges that they claimed were being brought against me are supposedly for the county I live in, so why the need to locate me? I pay taxes to my county they know exactly where I am. Scam Scam Scam!!

  119. Barbara says:

    Today I have been called by Nationwide Credit Recovery (662-223-3185) first on my work phone then on my cell phone. After talking with Sharon Smith they contacted my brother and my ex-husband asking if they knew how to contact me. They are harassing me for a payday loan that I never took out dated four years ago 9/2011. They are claiming that I have defaulted on this loan and that they are taking me to court. I told them that they were not taking me to court because they couldn’t even tell me who I owed. Just that they received the information from Vin Capital LLC, of whom I have never of heard. after talking to them twice today, I called them back and told them DO NOT call my family members again!! They are blocked from my phone. I wish there was some way I could press charges against them for harassment!

  120. dyangilligan says:

    I received a phone call from some company

  122. Laurie says:

They also provided me with an old email address and home address from 2006. They got $200 out of me today. I realized right after I hung up the phone that I was scammed. They also have an office here in the state of Louisiana called PreTrial Services (337)205-0670. They threatened to put a hold on my drivers license and press fraud charges. I contacted my bank immediately. The phone number that originally called me is (401)433-7979.

    Regional Finance Co says that I owe them $1300.00. When I ask to send me proof that yes, indeed, I cashed their check for $1300 on Jan 29, 2015, they first said that they had to check with their supervisor. Then they called the next day and ask if I received their e-mail concerning proof. To this day, I have not received any proof. I checked my bank and they told me that they do not have a record of a Regional check being deposited into my account. I also asked them to stop sending me checks from their company. I do not know if they will comply with my request.

    I do not know what else to do if they do not send me proof. I want them to stop doing this practice. I am afraid that they may be doing this to other customers. Please advise. Their address is Regional Finance Corp, 3465 W. Walnut Street, Suite 107, Garland,Texas75042
    They also wanted me to come to their office to sign an affidavit so they can begin an investigation. But, I am afraid to go to their offices.
    I would appreciate any help you can give me.
    Thank you.

  129. Kathleen Coleman says:

    I got a call from The Becker Group and they said the last 4 of my Social security #, my old address, my email, the bank I use and said I owed $1250!!! They claim it is from 2011!!!!! OMG I was crying and yelling at the guy Mr. Williams and said this is a scam this is bull!!!! Then he was saying he could negotiate for a lower amount etc… and came back saying $725 and then he tried for an even lower amount and I hung up the phone. He tried to call me back twice but I did not pick up the phone because I tried to find The Becker Group in Amherst NY where he said they were located and I could not find it!!!!! Please someone tell me is this a SCAM?? How did he know a lot of my info???
    I did not give up any info I just said yes to my email, and the last 4 of my Social security#. I moved 2 years ago and they did not even know that. One thing I did ask is "If they couldn’t get a hold of my why didn’t they email me? They had my email address?" he said it doesn’t work that way!
    None of it added up.

    Kathleen I received the same call today from the Becker group for some supposed payday loan and none of it made sense either. Like a fool I gave my credit card info because i was scared. What happened in your case? They say i had some quick cash loan they mentioned a payday fype loan and some company named peak3

  133. Emily Eby says:

    On May 13th, 2015 I got a automated voice saying, "You have two new charges against you in your county, associated with your name and social security number. Pay Day Loans has filed a complaint where you took money out from Pay Day Loans on January of 2013, and you will be served papers from the sheriff within 5-6 business days. They gave the case number. but I was at a place where I couldn’t write down the case number.
    I called the number back and the lady about 60 years old said that I will get served the papers, and then if you choose you can have it disputed in court, but you will have to pay the court charges.
    I told her that I never have gotten pay day loans.
    She told me three addresses where I have lived. I affirmed that they were places I have lived. She gave the name of a bank that I have moved 3000 miles away from 7 years ago and don’t bank there any more. She said it is that bank that has filed the claim, because they paid off pay day loans. (If I understood her right.) I told her that I didn’t bank there for the last seven years, and you are claiming that that bank would have paid off a debt I owe. That’s not possible.
    Then she gave the name of my brother and asked if it was possible that he would have used my information and gotten a pay day loan. I told her that he never does pay day loans either.
    Then she said, "Well, someone has stolen your identity and used your personal information. We are a mediator between you and the prosecutor. They hired attorneys to try to find you. The only thing you can do, short of paying it now is dispute it in court.
    I asked why it has gone this long without me hearing about this at all. She said they did reach out to me.
    They have sent you letters in the mail at the following addresses: and she named the three addresses again. And they were certified letters, so you signed them.
    I told her I have not gotten anything in the mail about this, and if somehow I missed the regular mail, I’m sure I didn’t receive any certified letters that I signed. So this is impossible. Maybe someone has copied my signature and is signing them.

    Then I talked to a friend and he thought this sounds like a scam. So he thought pay day loans should know about this. I don’t have a name. All I have is a phone number, and I called them back on this number and it reached them: (314) 884-3226

  134. Marcia says:

    Hi Emily, I read your story and my story went the exact same way!! Except I gave them my information like a big dummy!! Luckily I figured out it was a scam before they got my money.

  135. Jeff says:

    I recieved a call today saying that I had defaulted on a paday loan in 2010. I informed them that I had not taken a payday loan and this was a mistake. They had an old email adress that i have not used since 2008 and a bank name that I have used for the last 10 years. I asked the name of thecompany that was suing me they gave me WJT LLC. Never heard of it. They this company owns alot of payday loan places. Again I told them I have not taken out a payday loan and wanted some specifics on month and day this supposedly happened and the last four digits of the bank account this was suppose to have gone into. They said they cannot inform me of this but I can dispute this and go to court. I would be getting a supena within 48 hours. I asked for specifics again and said that if I am being sued I should at least be able to know who and when this happened so I can pull my bank records for proof of never recieving money. I also told them that this payday company dosnt come up on the internet when I punch it in. They said well google dosnt tell you everything. I answered wouldnt they come up on a serach for pay day loans if they were real. Then the lady got mad. So thats your defence. Since they dont excist on the internet they arent real. Please sir. Then I told her that her company dosnt come up either nor is the phone number you are using registered anywhere. She just said well you will see when your supena comes. Surrreee I will. And she hun up. Phone number was 12176669833

    402-218-1535
    I received a call today from a very hostile person stating I had committed a felony by opening a Pay Day Loan and not repaying it, and/or using false bank account information to apply for the loan. The representative recited my old address (I haven’t lived there in 6+ years), she quoted the last 4 digits of my SS number, and gave me the email address they had on file. I asked if she could send me legal documents showing the complaint and charges — she stated correspondence had already been sent to my physical and email address. I told her the physical address on file was incorrect and that I hadn’t received anything via email pertaining to this charge. She said it doesn’t matter anymore, the only two things she wanted to hear from me was that I would claim responsibility for this or I would be obtaining a lawyer and defending myself in court. I told her I didn’t want to make any decision until I saw the charges and information in its entirety. She hung up on me.

    I called back immediately to get more information. After a quick shouting match (she was very rude and hostile, lol), I asked who was making this claim; she said, "United First Federal Bank". She told me they have a cease and desist order against me so I am not allowed to contact them (I searched online and couldn’t find that "bank"). She mentioned again that I should contact a criminal lawyer right away because I would be arrested soon. She was "putting in an order to revoke my driver’s license" and the arresting officer would be at my doorstep or my place of employment within in 24hrs. She ended the call with some kind of tag line "lawyer up and good luck" or something. Sure…

    Got a call from Titan Alliance Group at 1 866 369 7991 in Buffalo New York Same thing I owe for a payday loan for 866 dollars and if they dont get it they will take me to court and charge me thousands more. I keep calling them back saying send me to court come on lets go Im waiting to go to jail. This is for a loan that I took out 8 years ago. First this would be on my credit report which it is not. Second those payday loan people would never wait 8 years to get there money. So this is a scam and I never took out any loan. They knew my number by heart because I call them back so much and threaten them. They never answer the phone with a company name they say how can I help you or just hello. Dont pay them anything just tell them to eat it and die and to quit stealing peoples money.

Said he is with the TR Group. These so called docs are supposed to be served tomorrow 6/4 between 3-5 pm. People like these scam artists must think we don’t know how the legal system operates, our rights, etc. Geez I am shaking in my boots over all this..just kidding.

    I was looking for a payday loan. Recieved a call from eddie (360) 861-4114. Claims that’s I’m approved for up to $3000. So I have him explain the process and repayment plan. Terms and conditions sound great. Until he tells me I have to wire a security deposit via western union to thialand. Then I’m to call their financial department (760) 264-4246. They want an extra $300 to do the bank to bank transfer. They

  152. Dianne Robertson says:

    I received a call from a friend and family member stating someone was calling them looking for me about a payday loan that i did not repay. i called the lady back who was then telling me that i had scammed some Sycamore bank on a payday loan. She had all of my personal information. I have researched loans online but i have never received a loan nor have i would i get a payday loan. This is insane how scammers try to con you out of money.

  153. Notbuyngit says:

    They’ve gotten smart and do no caller ID, but since important calls come to me I cannot block those, but I usually mess with them, how do you get your info private because it’s googles fault this is happening, they’re googling information and then harassing people!

  154. Clayton says:

    It’s always good to send your story to Robin24 – they can handle any fake lender you mention

  155. sam says:

    769-206-0018 Received a scam phone call that they were sending out a locator to find me from a pay day loan company, but would not give me any information on who the "lender" was or anything. I had blocked the initial number but now they are calling from a No Caller ID….

  156. Ron says:

    I had a voicemail and no missed call. It was the third payday loan call in three days, all numbers previous numbers blocked by me. Does the block from an android phone still allow a message to be left in the voicemail box?

  157. J says:

    I got the same type of message left today and they called a relative today! I see everyone received the calls, we do not owe the money, what do we do about it? Who can we call? I can’t have these idiots calling relatives and my place of business!

  158. april says:

    A company has called my parents to get my contact info. When I called them back tgey said that I had received a payday loan back in 2010 and when the payment was requested back the account had been closed. I looked back at all my bank statements just to be sure but I never got any money. When I told the rep that she asked me to fax my bank statements to her otherwise I would be served today. I told her I knew it was a scam and she assured me it wasn’t she said they would see me in court and hung up. I don’t know how to make this mess stop. Scary because they have all my personal info.

  159. JoAnn says:

    The company claiming that I owed money threatened to take me to court. They knew the company I had made a loan with, my social security number, date of birth, etc. I immediately contacted my attorney when the threatened to take me to court. He told me not to pay a dime. Never Never Never give them financial information.

  160. Tonya says:

    I’ve gotten several calls from different people to my mothers house saying I got a payday loan in 2008. The people are Sarah Parker who sounds as if she was from a different country such as Africa and Andrew mills. They call from different area codes and offices every time. I have never done an online payday loan. If I get a pay day loan I go to the place where I live and I only borrow $200 which pay back is $230. I told them I was going to go to the police and the hung up.

  161. Carol K says:

    I got a call and so did several of my friends and family. I told them to let the scammers know that THEY DONT KNOW WHO I AM. They called and threatened with serving papers and that I needed to have all GUNS and KNIVES put away and to have any dogs locked up as ANTHONY WOODS the caller was going to find me at several addresses he mentioned on his mesg. He gave me a case number etc… He said he will be showing up at my job etc if he has to.. the number that’s been harassing everyone I know is: 855-498-0065. Has anyone else been getting calls from this number at all????? He said it was for Everest Cash Advance and when I called them they said they never heard of the company ACG. I was told by Everest that when someone goes delinquent for any reason they close it out and send it to a collection agency and possibly it was sold to a third part who is threatening people and trying to scare them.

  162. Stacy says:

    I applied for a payday loan online and consumer payday loan contacted me and said they needed me to wire $180 upfront to get the maximum $3000 loan. This prepay fee was also advertised on their website. After wiring the money to a person named Akash Vijay and calling 646 583 2897 to confirm receipt, they said I needed to pay another 395 to get the money via wire into my bank account. The red flag went up and I asked for the initial loan officer that I spoke with because he didn’t tell me about any upfront fee besides the $180. So this guy continued to ignore my request to speak with someone in management. He even said that the government require you to put up the $395 because of the amount. I requested him to email me information as well as mentioned that I wanted to see the documents from the BBB and the Federal Trade Commission stating the details and he hung up. I have been trying to contact them all morning and continue to receive a voicemail.

  163. melissa says:

    I just got a call couple days ago from this 866 area code saying that I owed money from a payday loan name djr group and the say they were from Atlantic debt collector and if I did not pay they were going to arrest me

  164. Janet says:

    Got a call yesterday and today saying I needed to contact a certain number or they will be serving me papers by 7 pm tonight ! Lady was very threading and I have not responded to either call. About 3 months ago received the same type of call !! These are bogas and I refuse to pay these idiots anything. If someone was going to serve me papers they are not going to let you know they are coming .

  165. Christine Wilson says:

    Report them to the police. That’s what I did.

  166. T.W. says:

    I revive the same calls, claiming I have revs a payday loan in 2010, and was threatened with legal action if I don’t pay it back. I asked them to email me info on loan,but never rec.info, this black female, keeps saying I need to refer to my original papers, called from 301.500.2007, 240.500.1824, 1,800 number also.

    They go by a name of Acg, or Bad or something. 7/2015

  167. JOESAN says:

    I received a call today from my daughter saying some IRC company called from this number 772.324.9630 so i proceeded to call them and the girl was not professional at all and told me that she was calling because westgate payday loan deposited money in my account back in 2011 and that my account was closed when they tried to get a payment and that i needed to settle with them for the amount owed ($660) really LOL….and she proceeded to ask me for my current address and i told her i am not giving you no information because i never requested a payday loan from this establishment, she proceeded to say she will be putting it as refusal to pay and taking it to higher management. Pure SCAM….trying to get people money who get everyday to work hard.

  168. Charlene says:

    my daughter recently got her first call from a pay day loan scammer – the numbers are 201 564 9293 and 973 679 6954. She never had a pay day loan, the bank they said she used was never one she had an account with and worse they listed an address that she had moved from nearly 9 years ago! She called me in tears telling me they even threatened to cancel her drivers license on top of taking her to jail! If anyone gets calls from either one of these numbers please don’t answer.

  169. JAQULINE says:

    I received over 50+ phone calls from 877-632-9219 , from FMR, not only is it against the FDCA, they do not know legal terminology at all, they said you have been served or notified over the voicemail. That is ridiculous. I finally reached a live person to ask them to stop, she kept interrupting me calling me combative which I was not, I informed her I had paid any paid day loans back and that I needed documentation of who and her company was. She got mad. and I said sue me. The call ended. I am filing a complaint with the FTC.

  170. Concerned Consumer says:

    I received several threatening voicemails stating "we are ready to take legal action against you. Good luck." I finally called back and Christine Washington told me they were collecting a debt from a payday loan. What’s scary is that they had a lot of personal information. They told me I had to pay $1850 restitution money, AND THEN they would release my original paperwork showing that I took out a loan. I know I didn’t and the more I pressed her, asking for their company name (they gave me three different names, all fictitious), number, and website…she couldn’t give me anything. PLEASE BE CAREFUL!!! Claimed to be calling from Nevraska, but gave me an Ohio number to call back.

  171. Rhapsody says:

    I have been getting calls from several different numbers, 1-800 numbers and from numbers from different states in the country, saying that I owe money for a payday loan. I have never even applied for any payday loans. They all tell me different amounts that I supposedly owe. One told me I owed $400 plus interest for a loan that I got in August of 2010. Another told me I owed $500 plus interest for a loan from January of 2010 and if I didn’t pay I was going to go to court for bank fraud! How could I commit bank fraud?! I would have had to con people out of their money by telling them I was either working for a financial institution or owned one! If I did that then why the hell would I apply for a loan?! When I asked if I could have the address of where these loans were applied for they told me it was done online. When I told them I have never applied for any loans, they said well maybe it was someone you know or someone who got ahold of your information. If that was true then they would not have used my checking account number! I looked through all of my statements from that year as well as 2011 and did not find any deposits for a loan in any amount. Each number that called me was different and from different locations as well. What scared me the most was that they had my info: My previous home address, my social security number, the last four of my checking account number, even the last place I worked. I also looked on my credit report and found nothing about any default loans. This is nothing but a SCAM!!

  172. MARK AVENS says:

    Hii My Name Is Mark I Got Call Form Smart cash network loan Company they verify me all my personal detail and its true
    Then They proceed my application The number is unknown and and off the call they told me that you need to Prove that you are capable person To Take the loan You need to show $150 Then its also refund Back to you with Loan amount

  173. Angela says:

    I received a phone call today from BMS about a payday loan from 2008 which never happened..they had my ss and a old address from 10 years ago the number called on was 832-460-0507 and 844-856-9919… They told me if I don’t pay they will serve me in three days. When I ask for all info to be mailed she sent me a bunk email. Complete scam

  174. Badone says:

    Okay today Tues July 29,2015 I received a phone call from a local area code. Thinking it might be a client I called it back. And a woman asked what number I received the call on so I gave her the number. She knew my name and said I would be taken to court if I didn’t pay the loan amount I took out in 2010. I have never taken a payday loan out. I told her that and she said I had better get an attorney then. I laughed and said come get me…so after she hung up I called back and demanded the name and number of the bank that said I had a loan with them she rudely said not to worry that would all come out in court and not to call her back. I think I will call back just to irritate her and keep calling for weeks on end.

  175. Scared Stiff says:

    CONCERNED CONSUMER,
    I had the EXACT same experience!! EXACT!! I have reported them to FTC and the Florida Attorney General’s office.

  176. Bren says:

  177. cristalveech895@gmail.com says:

    phone number 509 631 9607 tells me to call 6699001512 to help pay off my payday loans! I HAVE NEVER GOT A PAYDAY LOAN! I have called and priced one, at cashland in Enid Oklahoma and i believe they gave my information out because i never went and did it. I have called them and asked if they gave my info out and said no. I said that is funny because this is the only place i have called in my life about a loan ….

  178. Maria says:

    Today my cousin got a call from some lady and left her a voice mail saying that she was calling from the fraud department of california and told her that she owed money and gave her a phone number. so she called the number back and a guy picked up and asked for her phone number. The guy then told her that she owed $458 of a loan. The guy’s name was William and the call back number was 212-335-3435. He basically told her that she took out a loan and wrote a check and the check was cashed in but the account was closed off. He told her to either decide to pay the whole amount or they would take her to court. My cousin has never taken out a loan. And this guy knew her social and her address. He kept pushing her to pay the whole amount and told her she was going to have a warrant for her arrest if she did not pay. The guy kept calling her sweetheart and kept telling her to protect herself. He ONLY gave her 30 minutes to decide. Total scam..she called the warrant line from the police department and she had no warrant under her name. The guy kept telling her that she received multiple mail about the case. She asked for the name of the person the check was written to but he said he could not give out the information. Watch out guys

  179. Chrissy One says:

    I received several calls to my place of business and home stating that I took out several loans in 2009 and 2010. The last payday loan I ever taken out was in 2007. THAT was VERY the last and ONLY loan I taken out. The bogus collectors call threating to lock me up for written "a bad check to the client". They also stated that if I don’t pay up I will be sent to jail. I received 3 calls a day from different number: 630-315-7174 (local number) asking to contact them at 678-952-8081 from Georgia . They leave a bogus call number along with urgent notice telling me to call back. Then when you call them someone is on the line giggling. They come up on my cell phone with a Georgia number or some other bogus location which is very odd. I filed a BK in 2007 and was told all my debts was discarded in BK and I should not have any debts from that time. They then proceed to tell me I signed a contract and I must pay. The worst part about it is they have so much of personal information that it is the shocker. How does one handle these type of calls, especially when they are calling 2 and 3 times a day harassing me.

  180. Shiloh says:

    speaking of payday loans, watch out for this email from Esteem Financial Services going around. This dude has no name, no website, no phone number, nothing, and he wants to borrow you money, lol. Here is the email, coming from info@entrepreneur.com.ec:

    "Hello,

    Do you need loans at a low interest rate? Have you been denied loans by banks because you have no collateral or have bad credit? Are you tired of
    bank stress? Then you are in the right place. Contact us for further discussion.

    Kind Regards,
    Loan Officer
    ESTEEM FINANCIAL SERVICES"

  181. Merena L. says:

    Just like Shiloh, I also received a shady email from Georgesco Finance Limited – exactly on the same lines:

    "Hello,

    Are you in a financial problem? Do you need a quick loan Capital so you can get back to business. if you need money to pay off your accounts If YES, please do contact us again for more detail for loan
    application.

    Regards,

    I received a call from a Dennis Boyd saying he was with the Sumter county jail with a warrant for my arrest for a loan in 2013

  184. Myrna Brown says:

    I have been scammed out of my 250 which I put on a credit card as proof that I can pay the loan back. When they had the card info they told me that I had to pay almost 600 because of my low credit score. Now they will not give me my 250 back. Their phone numbers are 214 785-4405 and 254 987 4451. Stay away from them scammers.

  185. Debs says:

    Received a call from 678-263-3133. Didn’t answer it, let it go to VM. They say they will "process me
    into the system" if I, or my lawyer, don’t call back by the end of business today. EXACTLY HOW STUPID DO THEY THINK WE ARE?? If you’re going to be served papers, or arrested, the courts and the police DO NOT call ahead of time to tip you off!! What a complete scam! DO NOT pay them anything–ask them to send the claim to your address–IN WRITING! Guess what? They won’t. If they did, it would be a federal offense (to use the US mail to scam someone!). I’m going to add this number to my ever-growing list of blocked callers and go about my life. 😉

  186. Janae says:

    I applied for a loan but never accepted it. They call with the same old mess u need a lawyer if we don’t speak with u by the end of the dayyy…. Govern yourself accordingly.

    Hello.
    ANGELA XXXXXX

    Congratulations! your personal loan application has been approved.

    Please find the attached loan approval letter and agreement papers for $5,000.00 from Advance America personal loans.

    There was an attachment claiming they are affiliated with the BBB. However, already knowing this just had to be a scam, I called and found out that I had to send them an application fee and other fees totaling $223 via Moneygram first and only then would they deposit all the promised funds into my account.

    I wish I had a way to attach the letter they sent.

    203-463-4958, Seymore, CT this number called and left a voicemail on my home and cell phone, claiming they were CRS gave me a file number and said that me or my attorney need to contact them by end of business day. I didn’t get the messages till a few days later so I called them, I was put into an automated dialer that said it was trying to reach my party, then said the call couldn’t be completed and it hung up on me. I tried back for another 5 minutes, finally got someone on the phone. They knew my name based on the phone number I was calling from. They went on to tell me that I defaulted on a payday loan and would be taken to court. I stopped the woman and told her that I’d never had a payday loan in my life, she interrupted me and said well then I would be fighting this in court, good luck to me and hung up on me. I tried to call the number back several times after that, but they wouldn’t answer or it would just ring until I got a busy signal. This is not the first time I have gotten this type of phone call and was actually worried until I did a search online to find out if this was a scam…yes it is. They wouldn’t provide me with any documentation of the debt, but what was scary was they had some personal information, the last 4 digits of my ss # and old and not complete email address, and also an old bank I used years ago. I can see how people can be fooled into paying these people if they don’t take the time to research. This is really sad that people are doing this to others.

    My mother and grandmother received a call today from a lady with a southern accent named Mrs. Hemmingsworth. Stated it was a message for my ex. My mother called back and the lady said she was actually looking for me and couldn’t provide what my name was. She stated I was in a lot of trouble and could be arrested at work. She left a voicemail saying she was from fair (or free) trial services. Had a docket number.

  204. akchic34 says:

    I have gotten two calls from a gal named Emma Gustavson from The Riley Capital Group. The phone number is 855-850-1517. They must be on the East Coast, because where I am at it was 6am my time when the second call in this morning. Yesterday she called, and when I called back, no one answered and it was a generic voicemail, however, the the gal received my message, but wouldn’t leave any details on my voicemail this morning in regards to what this is about. I say, let them take me to court if this is real, but I doubt it is. I received similar calls about 4 or 5 months ago, and they had my old bank information, and said I took out a loan in 2010. Well, I called my old bank and gave them all the information provided to me, and they had no record of me taking out a loan from this company. I was threatened and told I was going to be served court papers, well, guess what? No one showed up 🙂 These people have some nerve, I tell ya.

  205. Lisa says:

    I get 5 to 10 calls on my cell phone daily from a loan company.
    They all sound like they are East Indian all calling from NY, NJ,
    FL, RI…all from the east coast. They could all be calling from the same company. I have blocked at least 15 different numbers but they still keep calling. this drives me crazy.

  208. Patrice says:

    I have been harassed over the last 6 months stating I owe a payday loan from 2010 that I did not pay. They want $1500 or going to file a complaint. They have a lot of my personal information. I talked to them initially disputing then received a call from a male saying " you have been notified that action is being taken". Only said from Global Recovery. I have blocked different numbers they are calling from and there are several.
    Yesterday I received an email on my work address saying that a negative report has been placed on public records. Does this mean they have filed something on my credit report? This is very stressful and they are very determined. I asked for something to be sent to me by mail and I haven’t gotten anything. I would appreciate any advice.

  209. Nora says:

    I was contacted by and Attorney indicating that I had taken out a loan in 2013. I indicated to him that he had the wrong person, however he had my address and the last 4-digits of my social security number. I informed him that I was filing a police report for identity theft and then proceeded to ask him questions like, the name of his company, his name and the amount of this false loan. He asked why I wanted the information and I told him that I needed to know every thing and he stated that it would be mailed in the next 7 days. He continued to refuse to give me any information and hung up the phone. I called him back and he stated that if I called him again he was going to file harassment with the police. Go figure, he called me and he is going to call police. Can’t wait to see this letter.

  210. Mike says:

    I get 3-5 calls daily telling me I’m approved for a loan that I supposedly requested (I did not). This has been going on since the beginning of October. I told them to take me off of their list. The phone numbers are never the same and always from a different US city. The callers are DEFINITELY from India or the Philippines.

  213. Karen Poor says:

    I just received a call from some company saying I owed $500 from 2013 for a payday loan. They had my address wrong, which should have tipped me off in the 1rst place. I did give them my address, but said I never took out a loan, I don’t even know what Payday Loan is, and it could be a scam. I told her to send me the papers and I would contact my lawyer. She said they would take $179.00 to settle it. The call was from Jacsonville, Florida, phone #904=930-4655.

  214. Wonita says:

    I got a call today from 8445567254 this number saying they have my bank information and that I need to pay back my loan from payday loans of $500. She got mad that I said I’ll contact a lawyer and hung up. These ppl are ridiculous.

  218. Adrienne says:

    I have received a few calls from a local (602) number in the past and then today received a call from a (480) number stating that there are 2 serious charges against me and that I needed to call 866-445-5617 and provide a case number. I called the number and provided the case number and they had me verify my name and provided me with the last 4 of my social, which I would not verify, and they proceeded to tell me they could not provide any information. This was after they harassed my brother telling him all about these bogus charges. They claim I took out a payday loan in 2009 and 2010 which they also claim I did not pay back. They claimed that they received verification from my bank that I received the supposed money and chose to leave my bank account empty so they couldn’t get their money. First of all, the bank cannot legally provide any such information unless they are provided a warrant, and second, I never purposely left my bank account empty since there were bills that came out automatically. I also closed said account 2 years ago and left the bank in good standing. I would not have been in good standing had I done what they claimed. Also, neither payday loan appears on my credit report and I have not received anything in the mail about it, which they are legally obligated to notify you by mail. They claim they did this and provided me an address that I have not lived in for nearly 8 years, which is a longer duration that from when I supposedly received these payday loans. They are scam artists and they hire third party companies to track you down via phone, harass your family members and friends until you give in and call them with the hopes that with their threat of going to court and being sued that you will pay up. The only problem with them is that they change their numbers so often that the FTC cannot track them down and stop them. All you can do is just continue to file complaint after complaint giving them as much information as you can get.

  219. Jackie says:

    Received several calls from various companies saying I did payday advance in 2013 and owe $570. the number called from is 410-555-4487. Total scam. they had last 4 of Social, my maiden name, an address that I haven’t lived in for over 6 years and an old email address that I don’t use. I am so angry and this has to stop!!!

  220. Mike says:

    Pay-day loan debt scammer, I believe. Automated recording, female voice stating I’m a "person of interest" and to call this number if I’d like to "give a statement" or something like that. Called the number to ask to take off their phone number list, that I already knew they were going to say I took a Payday loan out, and said that I can say with absolute certainty that I have never once taken out a Payday loan. The man who answered wanted me to verify my personal info, address in particular, so he could verify he had the right person and he’d be happy to share with me the information about the debt I owe which he said he had three files connected to my phone number. I told him I will not confirm one bit of info and to please take my phone number off his list. He kept on. I told him if he has an address for me to mail the debt info to me. He then said they did mail it to me and I never responded (which I’m pretty sure was BS – never got any such thing in the mail) I asked to speak to his supervisor, what do you know? He IS the supervisor, how convenient. I asked for agency name and address. He said the name of his agency was Highpoint Asset and they were located at 437 Franklin St. in Buffalo, NY 14202. I have found this address linked with other toll-free numbers and an agency called Concord Resolution Inc. Seems like they change up their number and try calling you again a few weeks after the last attempts didn’t work. They seem to get very irate when you refuse to confirm the info they already have about you. He flat out told me he already had my social security number. I didn’t ask him to say it though. I think next time I will do what another person said and have them tell me the info and then say "oh no, the right number/address/email/etc. is…" and make some fake info up to throw them off, especially if they are trying to get info to pull an identity theft on you…oh and he kept saying the same line over and over again about how they were "fully in compliance with FTC…Federal Law….entity under which they operate.

  221. hfiehrihe says:

    received a call from 1-855-443-8715 stating I took out a payday loan 6 years ago and I owe money. First, they will not send via mail any information on the loan. second, they have your address, snn, and place of employment. it’s obvious a disgruntle employee stole the data and sold it to people who want to scam others for money. best thing to do, let them know you have contact the FBI and given all information to them.

  222. Amberlee Thiede says:

    Got a call from a No Caller ID number, answered it. It stated that they were looking for me for a payday loan that I paid off years ago. After reading this article, http://www.consumerfinance.gov/askcfpb/1699/how-can-i-verify-whether-or-not-debt-collector-legitimate.html I called back, I asked for their name, American Debt Solutions who is collecting for CMG group. When I asked for their address, Eric Smith hung up on me. HUGE scam alert right there. I called back asking for written validation of the debt. I’ve asked for this before, but never received it. Know your rights before answering calls like this! People are scumbags looking for free money.

  223. Gwendolyn Platt says:

    I received a call on my cell phone yesterday from a "collections" person stating that I was delinquent on a payday loan from 2011!
    I know for a fact that I did not take out any payday at that time. I asked for a phone number of the creditor which they would not provide, and also asked for paperwork as to this debt which they have not provided. Phone numbers 520 200-5240 520 510-0007

    "Good day To Every One, I am Banda Tibor and am 49years old, You Know there are so many of us that are in dire need of financial help and it just doesn’t seem that people understand our lives and financial situations what ever each of ours are! Do they? they don’t I guess !! I was in very chronic financial and terminal health situation some few months ago after all my search for assistance from friends and neighbors proved abortive and due to this I had to swallow my pride by asking, searching, and always praying for a kind soul out there to help me and my kids who were driving outta school as a result of my inability to take up with their tuition fees properly since their mum was also late and due to this financial stress and rejection Sometimes I feel there is none who really truly cares. I wish that I could win some money so that I could solve my entire immediate family problems but it was all a mere dream as reality became so real to my face when I was unable to pay my light bills, and my food stuff bills and as a result I had no choice but to search for reputable loan agencies online that lease loans out to the needy but all I got was a bunch of scammers as I believed the very second lender I communicated with due to my desperation to get money ASAP and that made me send to him the only one money I had both on earth and in heaven which is $310 usd and after I sent this , they kept on asking for more and this made me mad that i had to shut down that email because i realized shits and i didn’t bother going online to get any help anymore , because I didn’t trust it anymore . I became so emaciated due to lack of good food and my 2 kids age 5 and 8 were not also good looking due to lack of proper care as a result of finance and one morning I saw an old time family fiend of my wife and I told her all I have been through and she said the only way she could help was to direct me to a good loan agency that also helped her and she explained too on how she was financially down and how she got boosted by this loan agency CALLED MR HUBERT PAWEL LOAN SHARKING INVESTMENT: loansharkinginvestment@gmail.com who gave her loan at an affordable rate and she further assured me that they were legit and not scammers and she also told me what was needed to be done { THE COMPANY ADMINISTRATIVE

  225. anonymous says:

    A number called privately and insisted that I contact the number 855-259-5031. I called the number and she told me that I had a lawsuit against my name and social. I asked what company. She said cashnet usa in 2011. She told me that I could make payment arrangement but I didnt have no funds to pay today and she told me that she would go ahead with the legal process. Talked to me real bad and called me names.

  226. Hannah says:

    A company who calls themselves "Western" – 855- 201-2036 is a scam company. They claim to be an agent for a "payday loan"… Fortunately they gave me a name of a debt agency that they represent. I happened to call that agency and I had no such debt there. Tthey will not reveal any information about their company, OR the details of my debt. They want a visa/mastercard to process a payment or else they threatened to "see me in court". Check the consumer protection agency, do your homework and get the answers you have RIGHTS to.

  227. Stop Fraud please says:

    I almost fell for one of these shady fake practices. What a crazy eye opener that was. I did some little research and here is what various victims reported as scam companies. All these companies are listed on the Ripsoff Reports page as companies who call you and threaten you with court if you don’t pay right away. Watch out for these payday loan due agencies, folks (or watch out for people impersonating them): Cash Ace Net (Shawn), National Association of Credit Management (name used is Tom Clark), Rushmore Financial (name used was Kimberly Thompson), Statewide Recovery Group, America Cash net, Cashnet USA, Gibson’s Law Associate, Global Services, Jeff Morgan, Advanced Cash Loan Services, Richard Brown (claiming to rep SpeedyCash), impersonation of Andrew Conner and Ron Carter from Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, Coastal Financial Service, CAM Processing LLC, Twin Bluffs Financial, Austin Wilson Payday Loan, The Atlantic Group, Goldstein & Associates, Atlantic Group Arbitration, CFI Legal, USA/ACE/DebtAdvice, CMG Payday Loans, Convergent Citizens One Auto Finance, American Reimbursement Council, Marcy Williams, Stoneleigh Recovery Associates, Plain Green Loans, Steve Hawkins, Advance America (Rebecca Outlaw), Statewide Mediation Company, Coastal Collections, acecashgroup.org, Twila Gibson/Cash Advance Inc, Jack Morrison

  228. Elaine says:

    I got the same phone call as Hannah, a company called Western from phone number 855-201-1964. They are calling threatening my husband with legal action and they will only give me more info if I tell them the last 4 of his SSN. I asked for information in writing and they said my husband will get it in a subpoena and we’ll be stuck with the legal fees. If we want to settle we should just work with them. Total scam!

  231. Please let me know says:

    On the above noted date I received a call from my mother indicating that a company called CRS Mediation contacted her to try to get in touch with me about fradulent checks from a payday loan in 2012. When I called the company back they asked me to confirm the last four digits of my social security number, which I did not. They told me that they were a mediation company for a lender called Twin Bluffs and that legal action in Yellowstone county was forthcoming unless I paid them a sum of $1,775.00 to clear the matter. They indicated that court documents would be processed unless I did this. I have had previous calls like this that were scams so I asked him to give me the weekend to research his claim and to call me on Monday. I researched his company "CRS Mediation" online and nothing regarding the company was present. I put the word scam and several current stories indicate the same thing has happened to others. When he called back on Monday, June 6, I asked specific questions like a toll free phone number, address and webpage which he said he could not provide. I asked to have the validation statment emailed to me for verification. He said it was sent to me at my address. He told that i would receive a new copy in the court documents. In my research I also typed in "Twin Bluffs" and every article came up said it was a scam. I told him this and he noted "that disgruntled people will post stuff on the internet, but this is not a scam and I will be processing paperwork in the Yellowstone county courts. I told him to do what he needed to do, but that all the research and lack of information he was able to provide leads me to believe this is a scam. I hope I am right, but I see this is happening to tons of other people. Any advice would be appreciated.

    On Monday, June 6th my sister in law and brother in law both received a phone call from Absolute Financial Services 1-855-201-9986 they were looking for me. After returning the call I was informed that they were looking to deliver legal documents to me for breach of contract and check fraud to a shoreline Online payday loan company back November of 2011. They obtained my bank information and social security number. They caller claimed they could not give me a direct date of when this occurred she said that they had the dates of November 2011 thru June 2012. After telling them that I did not apply for any payday loans with said company they insisted they had tangible proof of it. They also said that they were coming to my house to serve me legal paperwork. I have yet to receive said paperwork.

  234. Breanna says:

    Today my husband received a phone call (855-259-3725) from a woman who claimed he defaulted on a 14-day payday loan from over 6 years ago. She was able to tell him the last 4 of his social, previous employers, previous addresses, work history and the name of a bank he had previously been a member of. Once he told her that he had never once in his life taken out a payday loan, let alone one online, she became very pushy and began to threaten him with legal action. She told him that he would be served with papers and would have to appear in court. Once he told me about his phone call mishap, I assured him it was a scam due to having worked in a payday loan business myself for over a year. Payday loans normally range anywhere from $50-$350. Typically when taking out this particular type of loan, the borrower can either leave a check or bank information with the debtor as payment assurance, but unfortunately more often that not, payment falls through and checks return back to the company that loaned out the money and then they don’t receive their payment. Of course, there are ways to determine if the loaner is trustworthy or not, but the payday loan company knowingly takes a chance on whether or not they will receive this payment. With that being said, a returned check to a payday loan company cannot be categorized as a "hot check" because when the money was loaned out, the said company was acknowledging the customer had insufficient funds in the first place until the customer’s next payday, hence the term "Pay-Day" Loans. Once debt is owed at this point, the delinquent balance with a pay day loan company will ALMOST NEVER be extensive enough that hiring a lawyer, or "pursuing legal action" will be worth the money. Most companies will just sale this debt to collections at this point, and collection agencies can be very annoying, but efficient when a payday loan company wants their money. One indicator that these phone calls are a scam is that if you truly are being pursued, you will receive no warning. This is to scare you into paying money that you don’t owe in the first place. It also helps if you know for sure that you never signed for the debt.

  235. Jess says:

    three of my family members received a message stating they were looking for me. The message stated Final notice for a fax order delivery phone # 855-208-4877 and to call Jennifer Brooks. When I called them they stated that I had a payday loan that went into collections in May 2013.

    Received a voice mail from 18552598722 stating to call back. I did and I had some weriod Native American payday loan from 2011. They new phone number, my very old address .. my ss number and all details. They said I needed to pay 400 dollars ( something like that ) or a judgment of$ 2000 was going to be pursued. I asked for the orginial lenders phone number because they were attornies for Cardinal law group or something. I called that number and it went to a Ken Johnson or something like that voicemail.That number was 18552598722. Nothing about a payday loan company. I called them back both back and gave them my attornies name and number and advised them to call her with any further information.
    A few hours later my mom get a phone call from .. get this the same number that called me early this am.. stating to press one if I was my name because I had a package waiting to be delivered. It play music forever and my mom hung up. I looked at the number on caller ID and did relieve it was the same number from this morning. I called back over and over and a ladys voicemail with no name or any other information was stated in the recording… just to leave a message name and my number. I never left a message just continued to call until someone answered. A guy answered.. he already knew it was me because of phone number and he stated I had a package of documents that I needed to arrange for pick up. I told him that I already talked to this company this morning and all information needed to go through my attorney. I told he was harassing me and not to call me at any number again. He said it can take uo to 24 hours to stop phone calls – which is CRAP. I told him that my attorney stated that he was harassing my and that this whole situation was a complete scam – and that I would make sure that my attorney and I would be a stop to this!! He said " WE will talk soon: and hung up. DO NOT DO ANYTHING with these people – block there number and I am praying the authorities can stop these people.

    I tried to borrow money from a loan company via the internet.The loan was approved,I paid a registration fee,tyhen I needed to pay for a clearance code and after that for an international whatever code,then the transfer was completed,I did it myself but the monay doesn’t reflect on my account.On enquiring the bank (City Bank in America)said I needed to pay another fee of NAD14’820.00 which is for the currency clearance whereafter the money will then only appear in my account…? This sound exactly like the example you mentioned earlier…?What can I do,I already lost NAD43000.00…?

  241. Stephanie says:

    I received a phone call from someone stating that this was a last attempt to fax some legal documents. I called them back and they stated that I owed money for a payday loan from 2010, which I NEVER had. Old address, old email, new phone number. Tom Hardigan with HIGHLAND HOLDING LTD is the person that I spoke with and stated that I needed to pay 400 or fees could escalate up to 5,000 dollars. They threatened leagaI action, I was so scared!! They almost got me, I researched the company and found a lot of information about this being a SCAM. They then started calling relatives that I know I have NEVER used as references on anything leaving very threatening messages. Once we called them back telling them that we were aware of this being a scam, he got very argumentative and hung up the phone. We tried calling back and he wouldn’t answer. We called the main line and told them to remove the phone numbers from the databas and NEVER call them again!

    Received 2 emails from a guy named Brian Jackson at speedycash.com telling me I qualify for a loan of 2500-10000. I then received a text from 818-666-7022 say" congratulations your aplication has been approved and to call back asap’. I had applied online for a payday loan and thought that this may have been the response. So I texted back. Turns out the company could only deal with scotia bank. So I applied for an online account. The company told me they would deposit 2500 and explain the terms of 12 equal monthly payments. It sounded legit. The company indicated that they needed to authenticate the account and then could deposit the loan. So I forwarded a void cheque. Turns out they asked for my client ID and login information. That raised some concerns for me. So I ask how they we going to deposit the loan. The company then proceeded to ask for my client info again and said he was going to send a mobile deposit of 200. I was asked to return the 200 to the company once the deposit was made to authenticate the account and then they indicated I would received the 2500 loan deposit. The hair on my neck stood straight. I Google mobile deposit and it indicated that the deposit was done through phone or android of a cheque which didn’t make any sense to me. I asked why they needed access to deposit a cheque rather than complete the deposit via EFT. The continue to ask again for my login and that it was only to authenticate my account and that I would then receive the 2500 loan after I send the 200 back to them. I was all very hoakie. So I’m posting this information for all to see in hopes of helping other peopke avoid this scam. Please be careful. The email they sent to me seemed ok. So I didn’t think it was a scam at first. I am guessing the cheque they deposit would bounce and the company would have received 200 at my expense.

    A courier service called to tell me they were coming to serve court documents to me and said the documents were filed by Midland Meditation Firm and I could call Andrew Mason at 855-265-4537 to get details. Mason said I had a delinquent account from a Payday Loan from 3 years ago. I asked for the bank and email address that it was approved for and they were both wrong. I had already disputed this fraudulent claim 3 years ago and told them that they had purchased a fraudulent debt. He insisted that he was a lawyer and they had been retained. He wouldn’t give me details regarding the claim and asked if I still lived at the same address. He tried to intimidate me into giving my current address but I kept asking details of the debt that he couldn’t give me. I am filing complaints with my State Atty General, BBB, and FTC.

    statewide recovery group new york…If those words are typed into Google look about the 4th down where it says "Dressler & …" and "Capital Management Holdings". You’ll find those who ran a reign of terror on a lot of payday loan people. With them calling relatives, friends and tying up my own phone, I knew they were fake and once I make a payment to quiet them down, I have about to weeks to stop them. Since law enforcement, FTC, FBI or anyone else takes this sort of thing seriously, I had no choice. Just see how it links upward from the name on the credit card receipt. Found the 3 LLC hideaway structure, with true LLCs, there a human’s name. Home in on everything about him and the LLC structure designed mostly for litigation insulation. Even then, there a camera watching the front door that no one uses, probably to avoid process service. After multiple warnings…drop the bomb (the bomb being information) at about 3am news years day, before they start calling. Now they call no one, until they regroup. That’s why the need jail, now lawsuits. Anyway I got this tore to the bone and exposed (as much as I can). Statewide Recovery Group New York

  258. Sylvia says:

    I am myself a Victim of Privilege Wealth Scam (payday loan investment scam) which Brett Jolly is behind. I’m posting here because Jolly is now in Asia and he is targeting Asian and expat investors as his next victims.

    The company’s directors are Richard Colwell, in whose name the notice was published; Mark Munnelly, and Martin Sampson, all of whom are facing potential substantial liabilities as a result of the estimated more than $40 million investment fraud that was perpetrated by the Privilege Wealth Group, which comprised companies and individuals in several countries, most notably England, Gibraltar, Luxembourg, Panama, and Spain.

    Reported by OffshoreAlert, the ultimate controlling person in the group was British serial fraudster and disqualified U.K. company director Brett Jolly, a.k.a. James Jolly, while other senior participants included Munnelly, Sampson, British salesman Andrew Sweeney, and South African attorney Peter Stokes.

    The payday loan scam model is: they claim to lend money to the poor people in US at an interest rate between 200-390% per year and in this way the group assures its investors a high profit. And there is even an insurance to insure all loan capital against loss, wrongful acts and default. Based on the description of the insurance provided by Privilege Wealth, the insurance can guarantee the capital of the investors in case of Crime (internal and external), Cyber Attract and Capital shortfall.

    This scam is reported by David Marchant of the blog Offhshorealert- https://www.offshorealert.com/ and by Tony Hetherington of Mail on Sunday- http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/experts/article-4763678/Banned-11-years-1m-bogus-investment-cheat.html

    Here are Brett Jolly’s famous scam stories:

    – 16 years ago, Brett Jolly’s Holland Moorehouse in South Africa made more than 8000 people lose their investment for holiday accommodation and he left SA in a sudden without anyone knowing.

    https://www.iol.co.za/news/south-africa/timeshare-dream-turns-into-a-nightmare-79184

    – Here are some other investment scams beside pay day loan of Privilege Wealth and Creditech:

    Timber in Ghana to get minerals in Ireland / Non-existing property in Brazil / Carbon credits……

    – Professional stuff and website, beautiful stories at beginning.
    – Pretending London-based offices / stuff turned out to be in Spain.
    – Partnership in Gibraltar never used banks of Gibraltar, instead, all transactions were made to UK accounts.
    – Never received your title of what you have invested or in the case of Privilege Wealth, no new contract regarding the resolution.
    – No one answered the phones / emails/ etc and all the directors disappeared after you put money in.
    – Companies went to liquidation.
    – Brett Jolly argued that he was a victim himself ( he really enjoys arguing and being a victim himself ).

    When you search for the “biggest diamond in the world” on Youtube, you can see Brett Jolly promoting this “amazing diamond” which was found out totally FAKE.

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/africa/worlds-biggest-diamond-revealed-as-fake-396153.html

    These are the companies involved with these scammers which continue to propose "payday loan investment" to potential investors like Privilege Wealth did:

    GENERAL WEALTH PORTFOLIO 1 LLC
    GENERAL WEALTH PORTFOLIO 3 LLC
    GENERAL WEALTH PORTFOLIO 4 LLC
    GENERAL WEALTH INC (INACTIVE)
    CREDITECH USA, INC (INACTIVE)
    CREDITECH USA, LLC
    C-TECH FINANCIAL CORP
    FINTECH SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT GROUP INC
    USC LOANS, LLC

    Those companies are registered in Florida. Others such as Creditech / Investabl / International Portfolio Service / Prestan Invest are registered in UK.

    Privilege Wealth is going to be put to liquidation as 77 of Brett Jolly’s former companies. They are worse than a casino- with them, you will have absolutely no chance to win.

    Asian investors, please be cautious of these people and of payday loan investment scam. You want to make profits, they want your capitals.
