Harassed me at work everyday until arrangements were made. Took money out of my account that was not authorized. Threatened to call the police, Human Resources, and my Supervisor. When I tried to work out arrangements, I was hung up on 4 times. I would call back and speak to someone else and the same thing would happen if I tried to ask for an explanation of different fees.
Trouble at my workplace. Overdrew my checking account balance 3 times by over $100 each time. Mentally and Physically damaged by the harrassment and rudeness that happened.
I took out a loan....I was sure I paid off a few years ago. I get harassed at work to pay off an apparrant debt, they refuse to prove of, and it stresses me out. i give them the run around. i am not gonna give them anymore money. Help...they keep calling!
lost over $1000 at least
I took out a loan with CashToday about 3 years ago. Like others their fees were ridiculous causing my account to constatnly be overdrawn, the acct was eventually closed. They have called my job and even left a message on my supervisors voice mail. They orginally stated I owed $3000 which the took down to $1000 then taken to $800. I have paid $200 and will probaly pay the $300 they are now saying is the balance to get them off of my back.
I took out a payday loan and told them I would pay them by money order but they refused to take payment that way. I no longer have a checking account and they want me to use a friends or family members checking account. The loan was for 200.00 and they want me to pay back 5000.00. They keep calling my place of employment and I am afraid I will end up in trouble or even lose my job.
Great amount of stress, I just want to know what I can do?
About 4 or 5 months ago I recieved a call from Sabee stating that I owed Cash Today Ltd. over $5000.00 for a $200 loan that I borrowed in 2004. I told him that I did not believe that was me because I had my purse stolen from my place of employment during that time and I did not make a loan. He went on to demand that it was me and told me that if I did not pay the money he would contact my employer to garnish my wages for the money.
At that time I told him if I had made the loan I would be more than willing to pay for it, but I needed proof that this was my loan and I also wanted to know why would his company wait 4 years to contact me about this debt. So he told me that it was not his responsiblity it was mine to pay the debt and he needed me to pay something right now. I told him that I could not pay him right away, but if he forwarded the necessary documents to me stating that this was my bill I would pay the original amount of $200. He told me that he would fax me the documents and that he would set up a phone conference with my bank, because the money had been wired to my account. I told him I was fine with that. After a few weeks and no word from him or the bank, I did not think about it anymore. He called back maybe a month later and began screaming and hollering over the phone that I needed to pay my bill and that I must be in the business of taking peoples money and that he would have me prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for what I had done. I asked him at that point to calm down or the ocnversation was over and he keep screaming into the phone so I asked him not to call my place of employment anymore because he was not handle this business professionally and I would not pay anything. After another couple of months he began to call back, this time I was in a meeting 8/21/2008 and he called my place of employment.
He yelled at my co-worker and told her that if I did not call him before 12:30 he would call my supervisor to have my wages garnished. He then called me again on the following Tuesday, 8/26/2008 and he began to scream at me and tell me that I am one of those people who think that they can take whatever they want and get away with it. I explained to him that all I wanted was proof that it was my bill and I would pay the debt, but he just kept yelling at me until I was so nervous that I just hung up the phone. I feel like I have been severly violated by this company and I am so embarrassed that I have had to explain all of this to my co-workers and supervisors so that this man or group of people will not be able to get any more of my personal information.
I have been deeply embarassed by this company telling my co-workers about this debt and threatening to garnish my wages. Even if I did owe them the money they have no right to tell my co-workers about this situation. Beyond embarrassment I sent them $100.00 initially to keep them from contacting my employer about this situation. Emotionally I was drained, he scared me to death with his threats and publicly humilated me.

I received a phone call at work from Eddie at Cash Today Limited on 08/21/08. He proceeded to talk threateningly to me regarding a payday loan that I got in 2004. I told him that I would like to have some kind of varification in writing of the debt. He refused. I told him that I was at work and not to call me there again and hung up. He proceeded to bombard my employer with calls. He demanded to speak with my supervisor and she got on the phone. He spoke very agressively with he. She could not calm him down and amke any sense out of the whole thing and she told him not to call me at work again and hung up. He called back immediately and asked to speak with my former supervisor. He would not take no for an answer and finally she got on the phone with him. He yelled and screamed at her and said that she was responsible for me and my business. She finally told him that she could not help him and not to call again. He immediately called back again and was making more threats. This company is CRAZY!!! I finally got back on the phone and told him that he was violating the Fair Credit Collections laws and he just laughed. I am very embarrassed.
I finally agreed to a payment arrangement that I was not comfortable with and gave them my checking account information, which I am regretting now. I just did not want my supervisors and coworkers to have to deal with them again. These people need to be stopped!!
On August 11, 2008, I received a call from a Paul H. of Cash today, Ltd. He started to say that they are calling former clients and offering settlement options for unpaid payday loans. I could not understand what he said so I ask him to repeat everything. He proceeded to tell me that I owe them $1,050.00 for a $350.00 loan and since I have not paid the loan as of 2007, that is why the interest rate was high. He gave me a break down on how they can settle this account which was a preferred account either checking or savings. I told him I did not have either and that I would rather pay by money order or cashier's check. He indicated that their company does not accept this sort of payment due to security reasons.
He indicated that they will contact my supervisor if they do not get any results. I told him I would try to open a savings account and that I would call him back on Friday of the same week with the account information. On Thursday, I received a call (not from Paul), but another person, saying they were waiting for my payment. I told him I had talked with Paul and made arrangements for Friday.
An hour later, Paul called reminding me of our discussion. I told him I was aware, and not for the company to continue calling my place of business. After reading former clients stories, I will be reporting them to BBB and will also hire an attorney. I can not believe what this company is doing to a lot of people and with such force. This company should be closed down and with the complaints, I believe it can be done.
this incident caused me stressed the past weekend. I have two overdraft accounts and with this, I can not open any checking/savings that report to chexsystem.
I took out a payday loan with Cash Today back in 2005. In June of 2005 I started working with a debt management company because I had gotten in over my head and ended up with nine different payday loans that I couldn't pay back. To this day the only one that I have had a problem with is Cash Today. They have contacted me only 3 or 4 times in the last three years and every time I talked to them I gave them the information for my debt management company.
When I tried to get an address to send payments to, the refused to give me one and said they only accepted checking account information and I wasn't going to fall into that trap again. They also refused to accept partial payments, they only wanted payment if full. I was never told about any additional fees if I didn't pay. I have always tried to work this out with them. On Friday, June 27th, they left a message on my voicemail at work for the first time. They said I owed $269.00 and if I didn't contact them by 2:00pm my boss would be contacted to garnish my wages.
Now I know for a fact that they cannot garnish anyone's wages without a judgement from a court, so I'm not concerned about that. I contacted my debt managment company and gave them the name and number he left. They called me today, July 1st, to let me know that they spoke with someone at Cash Today and according to them I now owe $1,520.00. I told my debt managment company not to pay a penny over the original $269.00 I owed. None of the other payday loan companies charged anything over the amount of the original loan agreement. I also found out that they aren't licensed to do business in the state of California and have no right to collect this debt. I am filing a complaint with the BBB and the Attorney Generals office.
I received a call from James at approximately 8:40 on June 30, 2008. James identified himself as being from Cash Today Limited and was calling to collect on a payday loan I had taken out in April 2005. I first told him that after this phone call I did not want to be bothered at work anymore and that his when he just went off. He threatened to come to my place of employment and speak with my manager/immediate supervisor and play back recordings where I agreed to pay back this loan. I tried to explain to him that I filed Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in April 2005 and the debt was included in bankruptcy, he said I was lying.
He kept insisting on speaking with my supervisor, I kept telling James that my supervisor wasn't in the office, he again called me a liar. He was screaming at me all the while I was sitting back just smiling, however I was getting frustrated. When I finally got a word in, I told him I would be more than happy to give him my attorneys name and he said no, for me to call my attorney and have him call him back and he BETTER do it within 2 hours or they were coming to my work on Thursday. He threatened me several times. We got disconnected, I actually thought he hung up on me.
So I was talking to a co-worker about it - she is actually higher up than me in the organization I am employed at, she had come to make sure I was ok. About that time, my phone rang again, it was James he said why did you hang up on me. I said do you want to talk to my supervisor and transferred him to a co-worker who tried to talk to him, he immediately called her a liar and spoke very rudely to her. She insisted he stop calling my job and actually used the words cease and detest and he just kept on and on harassing her now. So she hung up.
I called our switchboard operator and asked that he not be transferred to my extension anymore. He called back 5 times, asking for either me or the payroll department. He was not transferred at any time. I have contacted my attorney because I actually did file bankruptcy, my attorney is looking in to this as we speak. This company should be put out of business. Their scare tactics are illegal and harassing. I am tempted to file a criminal charge against them as they harassed me and threatened me.
I like many others took out a cash advance for $200 with Cash Today Ltd. They were polite at first and as long as they are sucking the life out of your checking acct. But after you realize that you are being taking for a ride or can no longer afford to pay the obscene interest on the loan they become rude, arrogant, insensitive, parasites. I filed bankruptcy while indebted to these loansharks, almost 2 years later they decide that my bankruptcy is no acceptable and resume collection efforts, threatening to send garnishment papers to my job. I kindly reminded them that I had filed bankruptcy in 2006 and that my debt with them had been resolved.
After much debate, I grew tired and advised them to contact my lawyer, even offering my case#. Needless to say they wanted no part of that information because that would mean they were not entitled to a dime! I ended the conversation with Mr. Johnson and told him to have a nice day. I was curious as to why all of a sudden they began calling again after two years and a bankruptcy. Well I called back to get an address for my lawyer and they would not give me one. My curiousity grew and I googled them. I found that I was only one of many caught up in this scam. DO NOT BE A VICTIM!
None because I will not be a victim!
