    My experience is the same as everyone else's, I did solicit financial help. I've rec'd 5, 6 calls a day. When I call back to remove my number from the call list they are rude, indignant, just plain awful. I add to my blocked list and they get through anyway. It's very frustrating!

    Received several call from (773) 347-7820 Stating I was approved for a loan of $15,000 from a loan group out of Chicago Il. When I called the company back they asked how much I wanted to borrow. I told them I needed a loan of 7k. They tried to force me to accept $10,000 which I was not comfortable with, I asked the man several questions and stated that I was reading reviews posted on a site linked to the BBB. The gentleman did not know what BBB (Better Business Bureau) was and said that I needed to check their website which was www.wegotathousand.com (note not even the name of the financial institution that the loan was supposedly coming from) and the more I pressed the more irate the man got.

    He told me that the loan would be paid back with ACH directly from my bank account. The more I pressed about his company the more frustrated the man got and eventually he hung up on me, I believe that this company is a SCAM GROUP based out of INDIA due to the fact that I did not hear a single person with an American Dialect on the phone in the background, I called the company back several times and each time I got a different person with a heavy INDIAN accent.

    I cannot give this company 'Cash Advance USA' any star rating but this system is forcing me to. They continue to call me from #773 869-0878 - a recording saying I could get a $15,000 loan. This time I called the number back to request I be taken off their call list. When I started asking questions they hang up. I called back, asked for an address - 2nd time they said it was 807 W Van Buren, Chicago, IL 60607. I asked what banking institution funded their loans. They said Bank of 'Amreca'. (He was clearly from another country if he was trying to pronounce America.) I asked him to spell 'Amreca'. He spelled to me an awful obscenity and then hung up. DO NOT GET SCAMMED BY THIS COMPANY. Report your experience and get as much information as you can to report them.

    I received a phone call from what I thought to be Cash Advance USA. ** telling me that I was approved for a loan of $5.000.00 to $15,000.00. I told him I was interested in $3,000.00. I was asked for a credit card number for them to add on an amount to validate the loan, which they did do. After the cardholder placed a 7 day hold on the money, the money was sent back to the sender as a scam. The next day, I received another call from what I was told was the lending club that was verifying the information they had on file about me and it was my information. Once again, I was asked for a credit card number for them to add money on, except this time I called them a scam and was hung up on.

    In last 12 months I have received repeated calls from Indian accented people calling and leaving a callback # for cash advance, #'s are all Chicago #'s. **. I have called back and asked to be removed from call list. If I get another call from same # I put it on my reject list. They switch to next # on list. Last call was 1/11/19. I realize they are probably not in Chicago but how do I stop the calls... My 100 # reject list is full. I like the no answer silence for 10 seconds the best. Then call # and it is no longer in service #. Love modern conveniences.

    If you fall for any kind of scam like this, I'm sorry, but you kinda deserve it. NEVER trust ANYONE that contacts you unsolicited for ANYTHING involving money. It's a scam 95% of the time and identity theft the other 50% of the time. I received a robocall this morning saying I was approved for a $15k loan from Cash Advance USA. Awesome! Wait, I never applied for a loan, so this should be fun. Called them back to phish for some info to see if identity theft was afoot. I asked where they got my info and the Sri Lankan or Tamil guy told me they got it from the NDA. I told him he's a criminal, he told me to ** myself and my mother, and we parted ways in a most entertaining shouting match.

    There is not a legit financial institution that will ever give you an APPROVAL on a loan that you didn't apply for. That's a violation of the Patriot Act's "Know Your Customer" provisions. Legit companies will, however, offer PRE-APPROVALS that are contingent upon verification of income, credit, assets, etc but at the very least they must verify your identity to make sure you're not one of them Al Qaedas or a Siberian teenager. The phone numbers they use are cloned from unsuspecting number banks and they will never leave a trail that can be traced. Don't waste your time reporting this to any authorities. They ** and can't do anything about it. LMAO @ people saying "The FBI is coming". No, they're not. ANY DEBT COLLECTOR MUST PROVIDE YOU WITH WRITTEN PROOF OF THE DEBT. This is very important, so let me repeat that.

    ANY DEBT COLLECTOR MUST PROVIDE YOU WITH WRITTEN PROOF OF THE DEBT. Do not provide them with ANY personal information and don't even confirm you are the person they are looking for. Simply tell them to send you written proof to the address they have on file for you and you will review that proof and respond in the appropriate amount of time. Any debt settlement offer they try to give you over the phone is not valid unless it is also in writing, so don't agree to anything unless you see it in writing. An email does not constitute 'in writing'.

    Got a text stating I got approved for a 5000.00 loan and when I started talking I said 'are you a scam?' He simply replies no. And started explaining to me 'scammers ask for money for a down payment on a loan.' That he was not like that. He then told me that he was going to look into my account and call me back in 30 minutes. Have yet to receive a call. I knew it was a scam. The guy's name was Steve.

    They are all like from India or Bangladesh. They are thieves. They say that they work for Cash Advance USA. They just keep asking for money money money and then after that try to turn it around and blame it on you that you can't steal from them. Crooks. They don't deserve any sympathy. They don't deserve to be living there. A bunch of Thieves. A character name David. Another one meme Alex **. Another one named Michael. Don't even give him a benefit of the doubt. They don't deserve nothing. This guy named David swore on his mother's life that I will get my loan and it was all a lie. They stole $600 from me.

    I have been contacted by phone recording saying I am approved for a loan up to 1500 dollars. First of all I have never heard of this company and I have not given anyone my social security number or personal information so I wanted to check the phone number they called me from and I found this site with all the people that have been scammed. So sorry to hear of your loss. Just remember a legitimate business dealing with money will never randomly approve you for a loan when you have never contacted them.

    I received an email to call for a personal loan from Cash Advance USA. I was approved for $2000. They wanted my passwords and account numbers. They were going to deposit money in my account and wanted me to send it back to verify my account then they would deposit the $2000. If I would have done that I would have been out $200. They tried to scam me.

    I received an email from a lawyer with email **. I was told that I owed Cash Advance USA $1200 and many attempts have been made to contact me. I was threatened with wage garnishment, a warrant, and closing my accounts if I did not pay the $1200 today. I contacted the debt settlement and was told they were a collection agency and just doing their job. This was definitely a scam. I never heard of Cash Advance USA and never borrowed any money from them.

    Same as others. Email sent saying was approved for amount, how many months, and payment. When contacted the person from overseas and very rude. Would not send to an account. Only Western Union and wanted 200.00. When ask only way payments could be made was Western Union. Someone needs to do something with these people... Justin ** is name. Used phone number 850-615-1079. Shows in Panama City, FL. Hope this is useful in stopping these people.

    Cash Advance USA in South Carolina / phone **. I applied online (don't know the URL) for a loan... was approved for $5,000... had to give them my online banking info (which I did - I'm an idiot); they made a deposit into my account, which I had to return to them by buying Google Play cards. The bank rejected those deposits, leaving me in the hole. Awful experience.

    All of a sudden I started getting threatening emails from someone stating that if I do not pay an unverified debt that charges would be filed on my name and social security number. I replied back to the individual who emailed me and a demanded that they no longer contact me and that I was submitting a complaint to the CFPB and my Attorney General. They then replied back to me with the name, partial social security number, mailing address, phone number and amount owed of the person they believed to be me. I then sent the email to my Attorney General with my complaint.

    This individual called my mother-in-law telling her that I have a warrant for my arrest and if the debt is paid they will reconsider the warrant. They tried scamming her into paying this fake debt. I do believe it’s against the law for Cash Advance USA to reveal any identifying information to any individual they cannot verify as the person whom owes the debt. They sent me someone’s complete contact information with partial social security number, not even knowing I was the person they presumed me to be. This company has violated the rights of this person and has broken the law and they need to be held accountable. This is not acceptable behavior nor will it be tolerated any further, the threats to me and my family will stop.

    This place is a scam. Went to go and get a loan and I asked for the supervisor and it was the same guy. Don't ever fall for foreigners at all. What a joke. I am calling the police down in GA and TX and contacting the Attorney General. They tried taking money out of an account that is my mother's and said it was an error but when I confronted them they called me names and I didn't know what was going on. So I closed all the accounts. Joke is on them.

    There are people of Middle East accent posing as Cash Advance USA PayDay Loan stating you've been approved for $5000 to $8000 loan! They recite all of your info you input online for the loan, ask for the amount you want to borrow and then let you know what your payment will be for 24 or 36 most! Then tell you that there's a fee for sending the loan to you which is between $75.00 and $95.00 and you have to purchase a home sort of card and call them with a no. By then I felt it wasn't right so I didn't allow it to get that far, I've even forgotten what type of card they wanted me to purchase! They use multiple phone numbers which are probably spoofed, because they don't register to a name or business! This is the email address they use. Cash.Advance.America7usa.com... PLEASE BEWARE. THIS IS A SCAM!!! I didn't lose any money fortunately!

    I have been applying for a short term loan and received a call from a Justin ** from Cash Advance America, saying I had been approved for a loan for $8,000 and to call them on **. I just read about the scams going around and I have already been scammed by one of the loan companies that said they were one thing but the real company said there were a lot of fraudulent companies using their name.

    So I received a few text messages from someone by the name of David ** and purchased an 86 dollar iTunes card then gave the card info to Mr. ** and they proceeded to tell me it would cost me 125 dollars for the insurance of my loan amount. Was told upon payment my account would be credited 5400 dollars? I realize I have been scammed and am out almost 90 dollars. I just hope someone else doesn’t fall for this. The number that called me was **.

    So I was desperate for money, applied to a bunch of places and they was one of the few that sent a text saying I was approved, along with a phone call. Heavy Indian accent. They said I had to do a verification process in order to receive my funds. The process was that, they deposited say 600 bucks in my account one evening. The next day I sent it (morning time). Long story short the check bounced and now I'm in the hole a little over 600 bucks. I called them back with no hopes of getting my money back, 'cause I realized I was a sucker who was scammed and probably not a whole lot to do about it. They tried to tell me they'd make it right by doing the process again, and saying once I did it, I'd have 6000 bucks deposited in my account. ** scammers. Don't be a fool like I was. Sometimes waiting and thinking about better options is better than being vulnerable and accepting w.e. comes.

    I was told I was approved for a $6000 loan. I had to go buy $147 in iTunes gift cards. I had to give them the number of the back of the cards. Which they redeemed after I gave the cards. Then they wanted me to send them $387 to finish my part saying that this will prove that I could pay the loan back, this was my verification process. Cash Advance USA, Dallas Texas ripped me off for $150. Something needs to be done to these con artists.

    THIS IS A SCAM!!! Someone called Tim ** emailed me asking me to pay the $300 I owe since 2014. He was not even able to give me a phone number where to call. He send me an invoice for me to sent a check or money order. Just be careful. Don't send any money. They are scammers.

    Just received this email and I know it is spam because they did not even put my name in the email and if I would owe them anything for sure they would have put my name in the email and even the amount that I supposedly owe. "As we didn't receive your payment so we are going to file this case against you on Tuesday October 10th, 2017 at your district courthouse. To know the courthouse kindly visit http://www.uscourts.gov/court-locator with your zip code. You will be served with a notice to appear at your district courthouse in next seven business days. You can still avoid this case by making a payment towards your total outstanding or else this case file will be executed as mentioned. Regards Manager, Legal Department, Cash Advance USA."

    I usually get one to three calls per day on my cell which is my business phone. One day I took the call and when I asked "John **" to take me off their call list, he said, so many people have requested that same thing, the only way to be sure it's removed is to pay them $100. Can't anyone stop these predators?

    I kept getting text messages, no legit phone calls, just texts. Now today they're threatening to take me to court, tell my employer etc for a $300 loan. Told them they can tell whoever, garnish my wages (I'm retired) etc., This was in an email they sent today 9/13/17. Now my loan is close to $1K due to interest etc. I just laughed. I don't take LOANS out for $300. I either write a check or use credit card. They want me to settle today for the $300. I'll never settle. Told them I'll have my lawyers ready also. I dont know who Cash Advance USA is anyway, let alone loan from them. Then I googled all this - it's a SCAM!! Must be bunch of out of work "lawyers" that are trying to scam people & scare them. I told them to bring it on, I'm ready! Ridiculous - get a real job!

    I was offer a loan in a text message and since my credit is bad. I call the number, I notice the heavy accent. But I continue talking. They knew so much about me (phone number, social security, bank routing and checking account). I continue talking. I wanted $2000 he said "No you can have $9000." I decline but he said my funds would be deposited a few hours later after they confirm my account. I immediately took the money out of my account. He calls me 1 hour later and demands my online banking user name!!! I told him I don't have one. So he demands my bank card number!!! I said "No way I would not give you that ever." So I wanted to see how far he would go and he say: "How can you be so stupid not to agree with us so you can get $5000 in your account?" So after that I say "Forget it" and I hanged up.

    Got a call today, 312-248-2234, and answered to hear that I was preapproved for a thousand dollars loan, and just call them back at same phone number. I called back, they answered Cash Advance. I asked "Do you have a web site?" I like to see how professional or cheesy a site is, as a place to start, in looking at a company. If their site is not professional, then neither are they! I even look for typos. Well, the guy just hung up on me. So I started researching (yes, I can use a grand or two this month), and found all of these reviews.

    Thanks to all of you for sharing. They are, as I suspected, scammers. I feel bad for people who gave them money, or got bankrupted by them. I have an account on the Do Not Call Registry on the FTC web site, and I will be filing a complaint against this very dangerous company today. Yes, the caller had what sounds like Indian/Pakistani kind of accent. And folks, just know, they can call from anywhere in the world and make it look like they are inside the USA with bogus numbers. It's why they are so cocky and seem fearless. Our money could be supporting more than just criminal phone calls.

    I received an email from someone saying I owe $300 but it has been moved up to $885 and they will be taking me to court and freezing my accounts, garnishing my wages. So I ask them to send the account number and when this was done no response. I have even ask for their phone number. All they keep saying is this is the final notice and how am I willing to settle. OKAY so I can't have your number. First of all why are we WRITING back and forth through emails.

    I just got an email claiming that I had to get in touch with this company because of a $300 cash advance, and now owe $885.59. They claim to be taking legal action. I never heard of them and I have no idea who these people are. There is also no phone number on the email. I'm positive this is a scam and I think they are probably another out of the country scamming outfit.
