Consumer Complaints and Reviews
Hello Consumer Affairs: Yesterday, a loved one of mine attempted to secure an online loan with Fast Cash. The online link that was used was Zippy Loans. My relative clicked on to that link. He was told that his loan was approved for $5000. He was then told to call the following number -- **. A person named Eric answered. Eric proceeded to ask questions about how much income my relative made along with other assorted questions. Eric then stated that he had to have at least $250 in cash to buy iTunes cards for processing fees. Eric claimed that those fees would be reimbursed back and the approved loan amount. Eric said those funds would be deposited into his checking account. The relative gave Eric his checking account number. He was then put on hold for an inordinate amount of time on his smartphone, which happened repeatedly during the course of the scam.
Eric eventually got back on the phone and claimed that he could not deposit the so-called funds into the checking account. This was the beginning of the real runaround and games. My relative was THEN told that the approved funds could be forwarded to him through Western Union. Eric transferred him to another person named William. William said an additional $350 in iTunes cards was needed for the Western Union transfer take place. Each iTunes card purchased had to be photographed and sent through my relative's smartphone with the scratch off parts removed showing each cards' PIN numbers. The games continue. My relative was then given a series of numbers. Supposedly over $3,000 was approved on two separate sets of numbers in those series. This person then had the gall to request an additional amount of fee money! It was $300-- $150/$3000 for the Western Union fees for each approved set of numbers.
At this point my relative grew very angry. He argued that this "company" already got $600 worth of fee money out of him. He demanded to know what was going on. William insisted that if the additional $300 was paid my relative would positively get the $5000 loan that originally promised from the very beginning. My relative refused. A heated argument ensued in which my relative stated he would be contacting the proper authorities to report this as a scam. He then terminated the call. My relative received NO FUNDS PROMISED TO HIM. He lost $600, just like that.
Readers, AVOID AVOID AVOID doing any online business like this! PLEASE do your research, and read reviews about anyone you choose to do business with online. Don't give out personal financial information unless you're positive the company in question is reputable. Never purchase any gift cards to pay these so called online fees. If you see this, it's a tip-off to a SCAM. A MAJOR lesson was learned by this experience. Readers, please learn from this mistake and protect your hard earned cash! If I could have voted ZERO stars or in the negative, I would have!
This company had me suckered in for a loan. I got one gift card for $100 and had to get another in the same amount tomorrow. Thank God I checked the website and found the comments by others who have been duped out of much more than I was. I was suspicious and it appears with good reason. I am lucky Walgreens will refund the $ on my credit card. I can only hope that others don't fall prey to this racket. They now go by "Dollars On Call" PHONE # 210-529-7557.
They put $1185.28 in my bank acct. They had me withdraw $1150.00 and buy ITUNE CARDS scratch off codes and send them pictures of them then they had me do another $350.00 because they couldn't put the money in my account so this was Western Union. This time I never got 1 penny from this company, they have me false MCTN# for WESTERN Union. I lost $2000 from this FAST CASH LOANS, do not deal with this company. 199 complaints on them. This happened Sept 1, 2016.
The next day they wanted $500.00 more dollars to activate the MCTN# for Western Union. 4 different people were responsible, Eric **, Senior Loan, Eric **, Junior Loan, Dennis ** and William **!! I have 32. ITUNE CARDS WHICH THEY HAD ME PURCHASE AND SEND PICTURES SO THEY COULD ACTIVATE THEM I GUESS. 32 x $50 + 3 x $100.00, all to get a loan which they said they would put in my bank account. Of all money spent they did nothing except scam me!!!
This bogus company has been calling me and sending me threatening emails telling me I owe $874.00 but they would take $250 and the debt would be taken care of. They said that I borrowed money from a online cash advance place. Funny. I never applied something online. If I need money I would go to a local branch to borrowed money. So beware of this fraudulent company, Fast Cash USA. The guy name is Shawn ** is a debt consultant officer. Well I filed bankruptcy on my debts in 2014 and haven't borrowed anything since. So all my debts are gone. Then my attorney told me to delete these emails because chances are not good to get a physical address to serve them lawsuit papers. So I hope people who wants to go online to put sensitive information to apply for a loan. I wouldn't due to the fact that there are people who is looking to steal your information and basically lie saying you borrowed money and you don't know them from Adam.
I am glad I research everything. I got to the bank info part and thought no way I'm entering this before I know if I can even get it. The research of them lead me here! Scam!!! Always look places up before you do anything with them!

Took my $250... Now all emails are returned back to me as...undeliverable. You'd be better off giving your money to a charity... at least it will do some good. This company just steals your money and disappears. PURE.... S C A M!!!
I just received a call from this company, Fast Cash, threatening legal action if we did not pay them back for a payday plan we didn't even get. They tried getting all kinds of personal information from me as well. Don't fall for it.
I was told I had a loan approved but had to send first month's payment of $200. We had a bad emergency so not thinking I money grammed it to them. I had looked on the internet and on their website and did not find anything derogatory. Looked at Better Business Bureau and still found nothing. So I fell for it. I closed my account due to fraud and am out $200. After they got that they wanted more money. It wasn't until I asked for info on my phone that I got the bad info. Do not know why it didn't show up on the computer. I am reporting the scam. At least I got the account closed before they could do anything. I am a capable person. Only fell for this because of our emergency. I had applied for Payday loan and thought this was from that. A real scam. Their present number is 646-583-2706.
I can't believe how completely stupid I feel for having fallen for this scam. I kept getting all these emails, almost daily telling me how my investment of $250.00 had made me thousands; all I needed was to login into my account and just like magic, the money would be there for me. NOT SO MUCH...as soon as I wanted my money back, my remaining $225.00 disappeared. I couldn't even login after that. Stay away from these people, they are liars, cheats who prey on those to pay their way! I had googled fastcash.biz to see if there were any complaints against them...I found none. Really folks, this really is a scam that will take cash from you and afford you zero back.
I received an email from Fast Cash lending officer Ricky ** who said I was approved for a loan. Long story short I sent a moneygram for $225 and promised a loan of $3000 and I never received my loan. They of course asked for more money for different reasons and then somehow money was withdrew from my bank account and my bank can't figure out how they did it. BE AWARE OF SCAMMERS!
There were no consequences except them calling me a **. An agency named Fast Cash advertised on the internet as a loan company, but they needed money to supply your loan. Well duh, if I had money I would not borrow it. This company called me multiple times a day and began to speak harshly when I did not bite at the non-existent loan. If there is a legitimate Fast Cash, get rid of the rip off artist using your name.
The company called me stating that my loan was approved. They get all my personal information. They put 675 in my account - said they put it in my to make sure the account was opened that I need to send them $510 back. I think they rip me off. Now I owed the bank $1575.00. I can pay the money back.
Fast cash, fast loans, 1st telephone loans or whatever they are calling themselves at any given moment. Always a foreign person with a heavy accent, from India would be my guess. Promise a 1500, 5000, 10000 loan if I only pay 300 up front for insurance. They call 10 to 15 times a day. This is not just a scam. They are identity thieves. I applied for a loan with a legitimate bank this morning. Then my wife gets a call from the "bank" and our loan was approved. She told me. I asked what phone they called her on and it was a second land line I had not put on the loan app at all. She said the guy was foreign. I immediately called the bank I applied at and after talking with the branch manager discovered that they had not even started processing my application. DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THESE **. They will argue and try to convince you they are legit.
I recently applied for a loan. I received an email 2 weeks later stating that I am approved for a loan of up to 5,000 dollars. I was leery of that statement as my credit is way less than perfect. Along with that statement came an attachment that looked legitimate. It was not, as I called and they stated they wanted money up front which would, "boost your credit score and then we can fund your loan". Do not waste your hard earned money. I told him I have an attorney that helps me monitor and repair my credit. He then told me ** me and my attorney! Huge scam.
I received email saying I owe 990.00 on a loan. I don't have a record of this loan. They say they are going to proceed with legal action. One phone number is from North Carolina and the other number is from Florida in the same message. I think this is a scam.
I can't stop these unsolicited calls to my cell phone which falsely state that I "...have recently applied for a loan." Don't know these people, don't care to know these people or need their business. Just wish they would leave me alone.
I do not know how this place got my information, but, they have been harassing me since AUGUST OF 2014...They call my phone 4 to 6 times a day. No matter what you say to them, they keep calling back, and from several different numbers. I have threatened to turn this over to my Lawyer if they keep going, and they just don't give a ** . To top it off.....It is always some Foreigner you can't and don't want to understand. There has to be something I can do to make the calls stop without costing me anything....It's just wrong...
This one guy named ** called me and said that I'm approved for 5,000 loan and my payments would be 170$ for the next 36 months. So I gave him my old school card and he gave me a # to call. Nobody answered the phone... he gave me a address in NY.
Say they're from LAW ENFORCEMENT - that's BS. They're a scam artist out of Texas. They tried to call my bank and put in a claim so I could send it to them to show faith. Call Chase Loss Prevention if you ever had them call you.
This Fast Cash Loans company is nothing but a complete scam and ripoff. Do not under any circumstances or situation fall for their stories or most of all do not send them any funds as you will never see them again and you will never get a loan at 1.5 percent interest rate. I was intelligent enough not to fall for this as I had called them back a few times and compared my notes I was taking and each and every time I called there was a different location when I had asked where their offices were located.
I also could tell the imbecile on the other end of the phone was reading from a script and could barely speak English and was difficult to understand. They attempted me to go to a Walmart and pay a fee of $299.00 and then I was going to receive a $5000.00 loan for 24 months at $220.00 a month. I called Walmart regarding this and they clearly informed me they never ever give anyone $5000.00 in cash. The imbecile who I had talked with on the phone indicated to me if I were to pay the $299.00 fee I would receive $5000.00 in cash from any Walmart through Moneygram.
I called Moneygram as well about this and they also informed me this is nothing but another elaborate internet scam or scheme. I am warning all of you do not participate in any of this as any funds you will send to these people you will never ever see again. I can not believe the government and the authorities allow organizations like this to operate in this manner and take advantage of innocent individuals. Again, DO NOT USE THIS FAST CASH LOANS. Good luck and may God Bless you all.
I received an email stating that I owe them money. I never on my life received a loan from them ever. Now they say that I am getting prosecuted for the payment. That's a lie- I never heard of them before.
I have been receiving emails over the past month as stated by other reviews. Same situation that I owe them $900.00 dollars from a loan that I took out from 2013 in the amount of $300.00. They are threatening to take me to court and freeze my income and tell my employer!! I NEVER received this $$ I checked my bank statement and nothing was ever deposited in the amount they are stating!! I asked several times for proof and have gotten no response!! I'm so glad that I found this website to read other reviews that this is happening to other people!! I didn't give any of my banking information to them (Thank God). I hope someone can put a stop to this MADNESS!!! As another reviewer said, "You would know if you got this $$ or were making payments because this would be automatically deducted from your checking account."
I received a email from a attorney saying he works with the fast cash online websites. That I have a "loan out from them and united legal investigation bureau has stated 4 serious allegations against you under the debt collection practices act, section 349b and they are: Violation of federal banking regulation, collateral check fraud, theft by deception, and the biggest one is E.F.T. that is electronic fund transfer due amount-$1875.00 loan company - USA Fast Cash. You are going to be legally prosecuted in the Court House within couple of days.. Your SSN is put on hold by US Government, so before something goes wrong we would like to notify you about this matter. It seems apparent that you have chosen to ignore all our efforts to contact you in order to resolve your debt with Payday Services. At this point you have made your intentions clear and leave us no choice but to protect our interest in this matter?"
I never had a loan through them so I don't know whats going on. So I am very upset, I am already homeless with a 13 year old daughter because of credit crap and now this BS.. Please get someone to get them to stop!
I am being threaded to be taken to jail and court. Not to mention my #SS number frozen being brought up on fraud charges, and all kinds of other things. They want me to get a Green Dot card to start making bi weekly payments of to $200.00 to start off the down to $100.00 a week till $1875.00 is paid off. But the funny thing is I never had a NSF notice from my bank, nor did I ever change my account so I know my loan has always have been taken out of my account. So this is nothing but a scam and I even had them send me a copy of the arrest warrant they were going to issue. If this isn't scare tactic of the major kind I don't know what you'd call it and how many times it has worked!!!! These SOB's need to be stopped and put under the jails!
Well first of all, I'd like to express my deepest condolences to those who weren't fortunate enough to find this site prior to being had by these low lives. I got "the call" at around 11 am this morning and yes, they are good at what they do. This Jake ** I'd been dealing with used phrases like "You sound like a smart man" and other compliments obviously geared to minimize my skepticism. He almost had me on my way to the nearest Moneygram had I not just woken up and needed a shower before I went anywhere.
In the shower I ran through our conversation and it was then that it hit me, this may be a scam. I got out and googled the context of our conversation and here I am, no poorer, no richer but safe. I am so sorry to those who lost money the same way I almost did. I try to look at the individuals responsible and feel pity for them but it's difficult. I want to believe that they are desperate individuals that would otherwise find an alternative to make ends meet if said alternatives existed. However, it very well may be that they chose this line of work because they are unscrupulous and selfish people who would be best buried underneath the prison. I'm glad I looked into it first so thank all you poor souls who weren't as fortunate as I was but know you're sharing your experiences was not in vain. You saved my wife, child and me $210 today. Take care.
This company took my personal information and then could not be reached. They have no phone number!
I just received an email for Fast Cash Services (FCS) stating that I would be charged with:1. Violation of Federal Banking Regulation.
2. Collateral Check Fraud.
3. Theft By Deception.
They told me I have 48 hours to contact them and if I don't settle out of court I will have to pay $3896.47. They are telling me that I owe $749.00. They said that they have attempted to contact me and I have ignored all attempts for them to collect this debt. I am so tired of all of these payday loan scams. If they are not sending emails they are ringing your phone off the hook. Where does this madness stop?
I just don't understand how there are soo many of these scam companies out there. I mean lets face it 99% of the people that are trying to get these loans are people that work and are struggling to pay bills, for their house etc. I am a hard working, laid off first time father who needed money to keep my gas and electric on and buy baby food and I got scammed the only money I had left in my account. This is truly a tragedy that no one out there is willing to help us...the scammed...file a suit and get our money back. There are a million lawyers out there that are capable of help. There is no way what these companies are doing is legal. I was told to pay them 300.00 on a green dot card and the money would be transferred. When I bought the green dot card and gave them the code they put me on hold for an hour, then the man I talked to transferred me to someone else. This is when I started to realize I just got screwed.
The son of ** that gets you to put your money up is the real artist, but just doesn't have the balls the let you know you are being screwed, that's when they pass the phone to the second piece of **. That piece of ** job is to tell you that your money is being held and as soon as you pay 199.00 for insurance then it will be deposited within a minute because my credit was low. I said, "you knew my credit was low from the beginning," and they never mentioned the possibly of having to buy insurance, if I knew that I would have never put the money on the green dot card because all I had in my account was 340.00 and would not have been able to afford the insurance. I understand I should not have fallen for this, but when you are struggling and desperate you are willing to believe anything. I will never ever do anything like this again, but I could use the 300.00$ that was stolen from me.
I got a call saying I had got approved for a loan through the Personal Money Services online and I was approved for $3000 at $145 a month for 24 months. They had me drive to Malden, Missouri 30 minutes from where I live and go to the Walgreens there and they would transfer my funds. But when I got to Walgreens I called them back, phone number 1-845- 260-9143 and the manager is James **. He said, "Go inside and buy a Green Dot MoneyPak for $160 and that was to pay for the insurance through the FDIC," so if I didn't pay my loan back then it was insured, they wouldn't lose a dollar.
So when I didn't do that the guy got mad at me because I ask why do I have to pay to get a loan when I would already be paying enough in interest charges? And he said I wouldn't be paying anything but yet I had to put the $160 on the Greendot MoneyPak card and give him the number so he could supposedly see proof that I had enough money to pay back the loan. I just told him I was reporting him to the Better Business Bureau and not to ever call me again and hung up.... So watch out for these kinds of people. If you have to pay to get a loan it is a scam. Do not waste your time or money.... Thanks.
I just received an email from a lady named Linda ** from Fast Cash Services USA. She says I owe $900 and if it is not settled out of court I will be charged with (1) VIOLATION OF FEDERAL BANKING REGULATION, (2) COLLATERAL CHECK FRAUD, (3) THEFT BY DECEPTION.
