I have been getting calls every few weeks from these guys. Every time, the same story. Robocall ** giving a spiel about how I need to call back about a loan. I called, told them, "DO NOT CALL ME." They never listen. Today was the first time they used a Texas number, but previously had always been a Chicago number. Indian guy always picks up the phone, and will hang up once you say to be removed from the call list. After a few hours, the phone line that was provided will always be unreachable. THESE PEOPLE ARE SCAMMERS. Do not trust them.
Some Governmental or Legal Authority needs to put this "Boiler Room" operation OUT OF BUSINESS IMMEDIATELY, IF NOT SOONER! I received an unsolicited "Offer" of an approved loan for $5000, complete with an approval code and a contact name of "Jack **" (the loan manager). The call came from a phone number based out of Clint, Texas. The number is 915-288-8923. SO, for all those other folks complaining about incessant calls based in Illinois, TAKE NOTE. Other phone numbers are now being generated out of Texas. I placed 1 call to the number & a foreign male answered the phone, claiming he was Jack **, then the phone connection became distorted. I cut the call off. I already knew this whole package was BOGUS. They need to be reported to DHS for FRAUD! 'Nuff said.
This Arab guy name Kevin ** from California sent me letter in my email stating I was approved for a loan amount for 7500 and that he needed my full name, address, phone number, social security number, bank routing number, bank account number, debt card number, employers phone number, how long I've worked for them and how much I made a year and me being a stupid person I gave him all my information. And he called me for a week straight asking me did I receive the wire money and he kept on changing my username and passcode for my online banking. Every day now he is calling from different numbers all day everyday from 7am to 7pm. I will be filing a complaint against him and then sue him for harassment and emotional distress.
I have received multiple phone calls from them for several months. This morning they called me from a number in Euless,Texas (they typically utilize Illinois area codes). Despite this, I do not believe that they are based in the United States because during my conversations with them, the same man and woman sounded as if they were from a country in southern Asia. They also throw out every ounce of professionalism once they are angry with you. For instance, the male associate became very vulgar and profane to the point that he threatened to kill me. He stated that supposedly he had all of my information and that he was going to track me down. I recommend that anyone who reads my review should block their number(s). They are clearly out to prey upon people who are facing financial hardships and to cause, such people, more adversities than what they are currently experiencing.
I felt it was fraud because one I could not get a pending fee for them. After waiting 8 hours then try asked me for my online password with username. Something that my bank accountant said they themselves don’t have access to ok. So cash advance was supposed to deposit 3000 amount that I never asked for then I had no return call saying how much was their pending fee. So next they return my call asking me what I changed my password and username so I ask them 1 why should they have it if I gave them my routing and account numbers and my employer phone number. With that information it should be enough to deposit my money so I even was questioned by the guy so he hung up then called back. Phone went straight to voicemail. 2 days they avoided my call so. I never got the loan.
I got a call saying that I was approved for a $3000 loan. Somehow....someway. They had my banking info. Needless to say they deposited a check (NOT from their supposedly company) BUT from a woman's checking account. They called me back telling me to go and get a gift card with the amount they deposited. I knew right then this was a scam. I went to my bank, closed my account. The police were involved. They call me 3-6 times a day from 773-887-1056, 773-887-1054 and so on. How do I get them to stop calling me. This is harassment!!
Got approval letter from CASH ADVANCE USA. Called number given. They refused to loan less than $3000...then I was informed that they only deposit into about 10 institutions, with mine not being one of them. I asked the guy if this was a scam, and he said "yes, yes it is" a couple of times before he realized what I was asking. The phone # I called was 772-882-6008. As broke as I am I am not going to buy a prepaid card just to get a loan. Their bank must be Regions (not my bank) since it was mentioned in that list of acceptable accts/cards.
I am filing a complaint against this company. They are continually calling me daily from different numbers and will not stop calling!!! I have called them at least 10 times to tell them to put me on their do not call list and not to call me, and they still do!! I called again today to tell the lady not to call my number anymore and she hung up on me. I would like to know if I can seek legal counsel and sue this company because this is blatant harassment!! This is absolutely ridiculous and there is no reason why anyone should have to put up with this constant harassment!!! Thank you for your time and please help me with this matter. Mary Lou **
This company has called me multiple times from multiple numbers and always at 6 a.m. my time. It doesn't seem to matter how many times I have asked to be removed from their damn calling list. They still call me at least once a week on multiple different numbers if I don't answer at 6 in the damn morning and I am sick of it. Will somebody please make it stop because blocking the number doesn't work. I tried that and they just call back with a different number.
They call me multiple times a day from a variety of numbers. I've advised them on several occasions they need to stop calling me. They persist. I've looked into the company. They're a scam company based in India using Americanized names, such as "William **", and local telephone numbers depending on your own personal location. They have multiple ploys to cheat you out of your personal information. Cash loans, payday loans, car warranties, insurance, etc.
Recv call Cash Advance a Roy ** telling I qualified for a loan of 2000 dollars which is was looking for. They said since I had bad credit I need to buy insurance in case I could not make payment. They ask me to buy a stream card for 100.00 dollars to cover that and they would deposit 2000 into my account and it would be done in 2 hours. So I waited and did not happen. The next day Mr ** call me and told me that they try to deposits the money. By now require federal fees to do this transfer of another 100.00 dollars which I would recv 2100.00. So dumb me agree and brought another 100.00 stream card and set them the information.
As of this mornings I still have not recv the money and now I am told that money will be deposit Monday morning. I told Mr ** I have no more money but he assure me that he promise that he would be sure that the deposit does happen. Yes I was scam. I believe his number is ** Mr. Roy **. So now what do I do to get this 200.00 dollars back? I like to ask is there really a Cash Advance company or are they all a scam?
I got a payday loan from this company and now they keep harassing me 14 times a day. They will call me, text me, email me 5 times a day about how I owe money. I have called this company several times and told them this is harassing and they don't care. I had explained my situation and they don't even care period. I will not recommend this company to nobody. Their customer service is very poor and they will swear at you and tell you they have a right to keep emailing, texting, and calling you.
I keep receiving calls from 773-998-7011 stating I have been approve for a 15K loan. They ask for personal information but will not supply any additional paperwork for me to review and or sign. They ask for bank account number social security and another credit card. When I ask, "Why do you need an additional credit card" they hang up. Don't be fooled. They are a scam. P. ** Cleveland OH.
I have received several phone calls from 773-869-0937 and 773-869-0935. They call me several times each day. It is always a computerized phone voice that leaves a message and says that I am approved for a loan up to $15,000. I can't seem to get the calls to stop. I have reported them to the National Do Not Call Registry as unsolicited (my number is listed on the do not call registry and they still call). I have also tried to block the numbers with my phone and also through my cellphone provider and the calls are still coming through. I do not know how to make this stop!
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!
