    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.

    I just received an email stating that I took out a loan for 300.00. Asked them what the account number was and if I could have a copy of the agreement and they said no that this was going to court. I asked for the case number. They gave me a fake number.

    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.

    I had received automated calls from this company 3-4 days in a row. I wanted to consolidate my credit cards. I decided to call back but every time I called, I would get a recording that the person I was trying to reach was not able to receive calls and to try later. Right then and there I thought... hmmm, this has got to be a scam. The following week, I received another call, I too, spoke with a woman with a very thick accent not to mention there was so much noise in the background, it was even more harder to hear her. Nevertheless, we began the loan process, until we got to the point she requested my username & password for my checking account. Do I really look like boo boo the clown. What legitimate company will ask for that info. When I asked her why she needed that info, she replied, they need to access the account to make sure it's my account. I told her she is a liar, accessing my account does not prove that it's my account.

    I then told her to remove my number from their calling list. She said they would but lo and behold, I received another automated call again today. It's ashamed how companies like this one is out here scamming & preying on folks like this. People are trying to get loans to consolidate or whatever. Why in the world does these companies think folks have money to send them for a loan. REALLY!!! Anyone that reads this review, I STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU DO NOT OBTAIN A LOAN FROM THIS COMPANY!!!

    So I have been constantly getting these silly emails from Cash Advance USA, I have no idea whom they are. Never took out a loan from any of these institutions. But I like messing with them when I do get them. Easiest way to figure out it is a scam, promptly ask them, "How can I send you the money so I can clear my name today?" They will come back with a stupid email saying if you pay '**' amount they will call it paid in full. I then ask them again, "How can I send the money right now to take advantage of this great settlement amount?" Their response would be something like what I received from them again. Stupid scam.

    I was desperate money. I had applied for a short term loan. They called and asked me what I wanted. I said 2000.00 and they said they would give me 10000.00 something. I was like ok. I went to my bank and there was no deposit from anyone except for my wife's check. They emailed me saying that they're going to make it so I can't get a job. My account will be frozen etc. I contacted the FBI and sent them the email I received from them. So if they are reading this and I hope they are but the FBI is coming. Run and hide.

    I do not owe these people. They go to class reunion.com or life.com, get your information and they act like you have a had a loan. I have not had a loan in 20 years, they can keep it up and I will sue for harassment. I am tired of these people trying to scam me. There is definitely something needs to be done about them. I had one removed from my credit report. They need to quit prying on people. Something needs to be done.

    I just had a wonderful time jerking these people off. They've been robocalling me a couple of times a day for some weeks, so I finally decided to call back and really piss them off. No legitimate company calls you to offer you a loan - you have to call them and actually apply. Anyway, these jerkoffs kept hanging up on me so I kept calling back - 15 times before they finally blocked my number. I then used another phone to call again and pretend like I really wanted a loan.

    I told the guy I wanted $20,000 and he asked how much I made before taxes each month, so I told him maybe $300. He then wanted to know how I thought I would get a loan with only making that much a month. I replied that since they had called me, they obviously already knew how much I made and yet still offered me a loan. He then said I could have $2000 and wanted to know my bank routing number. I gave him the number of an old account that has been closed for some time, and he really got pissed. He eventually hung up on me too. I only wish I could have recorded this for YouTube.

    A woman named Amy ** emailed and sent me a text that I was approved for $4000. Now I didn't need that much, but I called. Amy had a thick accent like from India. After straining to understand her she said it would be $250 per month. Not too bad I told her. But the catch... She wanted me to send them money first then they would deposit my money. What? She called it "insurance". I told her no and not to ever contact me again. Be aware of this company.
