I received notification that my credit score dropped and that I had a new collection account through my Credit Karma account. There is a dispute in place now with TransUnion. I have never borrowed from this company and have no idea who Midwest Recovery Systems is. I am thankful to see everyone else with same issues reported, there are several. This is obviously a scam! I filed a report with the BBB and online police report for fraud. I have a attorney friend who is going to pursue legal action against the company.
Received notification that my credit score dropped dramatically. There is a dispute in place now. I have never borrowed from this company and have no idea who Midwest recovery systems is either. I am very thankful in a way to see everyone else with same issues reported recently. I am taking screenshots of all of it. How in the heck they managed to get on my credit report with a scam is just bothering me. I am so sorry this has happened to you as well best of luck!
I received a notice from my credit monitoring account that I had received a collection from this company I had never heard of... When I contacted the company that placed it on my credit the bank information they provided as to what was deposited is not my bank nor have I heard of it... The email address they had on file was similar to mine but not mine. I have disputed it with two of the credit bureaus as well as with the company who placed the collection for MyCashNow which I discovered is some bogus Payday Loan scam company...
My credit reporting company notified me that I was turned into collections for $900. I have NEVER heard of these people. I turned in a dispute about this account to the credit bureau. From the reviews, it seems like these companies are a scam.
My credit monitoring company notified me that an outstanding bill of $800 from a company called MyCashNow appeared on my credit report. I never heard of, I never used this fake company. I immediately submitted a fraud alert to my credit monitoring company to have it removed. This ticks me off and I hope they get caught. This is hurt my good credit and I hope it can be resolved.
Received an email from my credit monitoring service stating I had a new collection on my account from this company from 2015. I have never borrowed from them, had never heard of them & did not have anything to do with them. I notified the company number listed on my credit monitoring & was told they were emailing me fraud paperwork. I already disputed the claim on my credit report so now, I wait.
Got a notice about a new collection added to my credit report. No other information than a payday loan in the amount of $800. Nothing about when this supposedly happened, etc. I have never heard of them nor have I applied for payday loan. After reading the other reviews, it seems to be a very shady company trying to scare people into paying money they never received.
Have been receiving calls stating that I had gotten a $300 loan in 2012 that has not been paid. They are trying to serve me a summons but I will not answer the door. I called them back at number left only to be repeatedly called a liar, when told them I had never gotten a loan. But if I go on a pay plan with 100 today, they will not arrest me. But must pay $1250. Or clear up today by paying $450 today. Called the bank they said money went into my account, guess what. I have never had an account with that bank! Fraud. They said they were going to bring the summons to me in 30 minutes if I was home. They did not show up.
I received a call like everyone else yesterday, claiming they were trying to serve me a subpoena but no one was answering the door. The number came up as Ocean County Court and the number was 732-929-2067. I told him that I have stage 3 lung cancer and that I’ve been home all day due to the humidity. I verified he had the correct address and said come on over. He said he was already back in the office for the day (it was 11 am) and that he would come back in the morning. He then gave me a number to call to find out what my subpoena was for.
I called the number and all I gave was my first and last name and he magically found my file. I was told I was being charged with theft of services and Check fraud due to an outstanding cash loan from MyCashNow. Because I HAD previously taken out a cash advance loan in 2010 and had legit closed my bank account because I moved, I actually fell for it. He said I owed $600 but he was authorized to accept 50%. Normally I wouldn’t fall for something like this but I’ve been on chemo for a while and chemo brain is a real thing. Not wanting to deal with the hassle of court I agreed to pay the $300 because he had all my personal and previous bank history. I gave him my debit card info and he said he would contact the process server and let them know it was settled.
Not 45 seconds after I hung up the phone did I realize my loan was from MobileLoans not MyCashNow so I didn’t bother to call him back. I called my bank and asked to have the transaction reversed and I was told I could file a fraud claim the next day as the transaction was still “pending”. I cancelled my debit card so he wouldn’t charge anything else and requested a new one. I then sent a scathing email to the dirtbag (he emailed me a receipt for payment in full... I guess they do that so you won’t think anything is wrong and look further into it) so I sent this email and told him that I realized after I hung up that I never had a loan with MyCashNow and that he was a lying piece of garbage and if I didn’t get my money back by close of business that day I was going to find him and have HIM arrested.
Well, of course that received no response so I decided to try the humanitarian route. I asked him if his mother was proud of his career choices since he just scammed $300 from a terminal cancer patient who lives on a fixed income and can barely afford my cancer treatments. I asked how he slept at night and how he could look his family in the face. It went on and on and on... I’m sure I made him feel about an inch tall because within an hour that transaction went away when I looked online. Apparently he reversed it or cancelled it because the money was back in my account and the transaction gone. I must have hit a nerve with him. Apparently some of them have a conscience but it’s buried pretty deep.
I then sent him another email and said, "If you’re expecting a thank you forget it." I then went on to tell him everything about myself (not financial or identifying information) and told him I wanted him to know who he attempted to steal from. I told him about having dealt with 2 separate cancer diagnosis, 21 surgeries, my time in the US military, all the charity work I still do regardless of my health... I went on and on. I told him he needed to realize that there were real people on the other end of the phone and that taking money from them was disgusting and immoral and unAmerican. At the end I told him to make a new career choice because he was hurting people with his current one.
I’m not sure why he gave me back my money. They certainly aren’t afraid of prosecution because they take steps to make sure they are covered but he did give it back. That makes me believe that the email address had to be real and he had to have read it and because it was real maybe he was really worried about being tracked down or he just developed a conscience. Either way, I got my money and he got an earful (eye full). I can tell you this will NEVER happen to me again. I also think MyCashNow needs to take some responsibility for this. I know it’s not them doing it and they are a legitimate company but the scammers are getting hold of people’s information somehow and it’s likely a current or former employer feeding it to them. They have a moral responsibility since their name is being used to do some investigating of their own.
I keep receiving calls from a supposed debit collector about a loan taken from MyCashNow.com, which I never applied for nor received. Doesnt show on any statements from the past 4 years. I’ve been threatened with warrants and police to come to my home if I don’t make a payment arrangement and honor it. Once I told them I contacted the BBB I received another email assuring me that they aren’t a fraudulent company. The number listed in the email is a ad they call from different numbers or unknown. I asked for the card number or last four. All they gave me was the last four of my SSN and last known address and a email that isn’t mine.
Received call from ** stating owed on a loan from MyCashNow, which is false, at no time or ever applied or received a loan with this company or its affiliates. In the past been receiving many scams regarding loans, recipient of fraud attempts four times, currently retired, service connected disabled Vietnam Veteran, and very street wise to foolish attempts. They get our information no matter what steps we take, JUST BE WISE.
I rcvd a call from 904.862.2829 today. He asked for my information and I asked him to identify who he was. He gave the last 4 of my SSN. I asked for details and he hung up on. I called back for the name of the company and a supervisor, he hung up again. The 3rd time I called back, he attempted to change his voice and gave me another name. I do not and never did have a cash loan. This is just a scam to scare you into paying something you don't owe.
I received a call from a company called Mediation processing service claiming that I owe MyCashNow for a loan that was put into collections in 2013. I have been through identity theft before and I am a member of LifeLock. Well, I was told that the total that I owed counting late fees, etc. was almost $1,000. Well there's a problem because I KNOW that I NEVER took out a loan with GetCashNow or any other online payday loan. The rep from the mediation company was actually very nice to me. But she had no phone number for the loan company and she had no idea when the actual loan was taken out. All I know is it wasn't me. Does anyone have a legit number for GetCashNow?
Received a call from an Anthony ** stating I owed money to My Cash Now. Could not tell me the exact date or amount. Did research. Did received money from them. My bank did the research. FRAUD. Going to turn it over to the proper authorities. Don't deal with these people or give any information out to them. Gave me a fax number to fax info to him.
Received a call from a representative of this company. Supposedly a loan had been obtained for $1000 in 2012 and unless paid it would be $3000 when it went to court. I do not recall ever obtaining such a loan. I'm medically retired and the reply was, "Well they will just garnish your wages." And, she added, "They have every right to come and take you into custody." Supposedly letters mailed to me were returned and bank account showed closed. She said there were no options since they had no valid information. I was also under a bankruptcy at the time. I haven't moved nor have had any legal issues for a supposed returned check.
Received a call from Integrity Financial (or so he said) at work. They stated that I owed a payday loan from MYCASHNOW from back in 2013. I may have had a loan with them but really couldn't remember. I had filed bankruptcy in 2007 and was released in 2013. Told them this and that regardless it was past the SOL for Mississippi which is 3 yrs and that it is uncollectable. He said that it does not pertain to payday loans. He also told me that I had committed fraud but I believe I was already out of bankruptcy at the time. Also I do know that payments were deducted from my checking account which would mean that there was no fraud or they would never have gotten anything out of me.
Since then I have learned that it is illegal for a payday loan company to do business in the state of Mississippi unless they are registered with the Sec of State's office, which they are not. And in Mississippi, it is also illegal for a payday loan company to allow you to pay only the finance fee and extend the loan. It is supposed to be paid in full on due date. He was starting to get me riled up and I used the word 'ass' and he started telling me how low I was to use such language. I could have used a lot more of that language but restrained myself. It is not fraud to default on a loan. They called from ** which of course does not pull any info up online.
I got a call from **. I had an experience like most of you. They said that I owed 1000+ for a loan back in 2012. They stated my address, e-mail, and bank. She said she was not a debt collector but more like a mediator, and that I should probably get a defense attorney on stand by. She also said that because I did it maliciously that I closed my account or had insufficient funds, and it can triple and quadruple the amount. She put me on hold to talk to her manager concerning my case because this was new to me and it had to be identity fraud. The response I was greeted with was, "We can submit an application to settle for the original amount."
I called back saying I could get records from my bank to prove that wasn't the case. My account wasn't closed and at the time. I probably had the money to cover or I would have received an overdraft charge (I had to close an account for an online company decided it wanted to take money out of my account, but the time frame did not match up). She couldn't provide me with the number for these idiots and said that I would be contacted. What happened to morals? This is what people have to do to make a living? You should be ashamed of yourselves! You will never succeed at anything putting all this negative energy into existence. I am so disgusted!
I received a call from 904-559-1620 stating I had a pay loan over five years ago. They stated last 4 of social employer at that time and my bank at that time. I have received several calls from several different collections agencies. This one is Debt. Mediation. They could not tell me the date the account was opened or the original amount of supposed loan. But I owe $500 at this time with fees. They even stated the city I lived in. I advised this never showed in my credit report and I would not say I owe anything if my questions could not be answered.
I asked for the number to MyCashNow and was told she could not give that info out and I could google it. But they bought the account and it's so old they would not have the answers to my questions. They stated they could state me to court which would include court costs or they could garnish my wages. I said ok I will call them. I was told they are a blanket lender for many different things and it was better for me to just settle it. I adv I am not saying I owe this until I get my questions answered.
I received a phone call today from "Premier Processing Service" saying that I took out a loan in 2013 in Missouri for $1867 that I didn't pay back and they were going to proceed with court hearings for wage garnishments. They recited my ssn, employer while residing there, email address, and bank acct info... This is all irrelevant because with the right person/equipment anyone can find this information, but if you don't know how these calls work, I can see how it would sound scary and legit. However, there were several holes in this rep's story: In 2013, I had already moved back to my home state. Even though I was a broke college student in that state, my parents still took care of me so I had no reason to get a payday loan EVER... Didn't really know how they worked anyway.
They said that they were taking money from an old bank acct that I had already closed quite some time before I moved home and I worked a little job on-campus and didn't make nowhere near the amount needed to pay them back for this "loan." So where was this invisible money that they were getting coming from?! They didn't tell me what "court" they were filing proceedings with. Then they said "well somebody must've gotten one in your name, probably online, because we have an electronic signature." Really?! If that were to happen and the account was sent to collections for non-payment, it would've shown up on my credit report as a derogatory collections account.
I laughed so hard while on the phone with these clowns... I think it pissed them off because they said "since you think it's funny, we'll garnish your wages. We'll see you in court" then they hung up on me. If you know for sure that you didn't get a loan ever, don't even bother verifying anything with these fools... Just laugh and keep repeating "que?!"
I received the craziest call not too long ago from number 9042571726. Apparently I took out a payday loan in 2014 (which I did not) and they were ready to file suit against me. I filed bankruptcy chp. 7 in March 2015 and it was discharged July 2015. Even then I had no payday loan with them! So instead of arguing with her I mentioned I have an attorney she could call to handle the court proceedings with and she says, "Oh I'm only the processor I don't talk to attorneys. We'll file suit with your name and social," and hangs up. I tried looking this place up and they don't exist. At least from what I could find. The website doesn't load and only phone number I could find keeps hanging up... 18003982274. Anyone experience this? Or know what to do next? All of my debt has been settled and I keep a close eye on my credit now. Not sure where in the world they found my information.
I have been getting phone calls from a company about wanting to serve me papers for court hearings. I have tried to call back and have been told, "The mailbox is full. You have dialed an incorrect number," and then it would hang up. Then my sister and cousin called to say these people called them saying that they were trying to find me and couldn't. I have lived in the same house for 8 years and have been at my same job since 1993. I finally got a hold of someone today who proceeded to tell me that they have 4 cases pending against me and that they have never seen anyone with this many cases. According to them I owe over $2000 for payday loans that I never paid back. The lady was rude and when I proceeded to question her about these cases, she accused me of being rude. I then settled her to give me the court dates and the amounts. She gave me two different companies for the first two but none for the last two.
One of the companies was MyCashNow. I have never heard of them and so I told her to transfer me to the persons who had called me. That is when it took a downhill turn. I asked why they needed my permission to serve the papers. I said that I had never heard of that. Everyone else that is being served is served without their permission. She started getting tangled up and then went back to accuse me of being rude. I told her that I no longer wanted to speak to her but to transfer me to one of the two people who had my case. She told me, that she was in the legal dept and could speak to me. I then told her transfer me or I would hang up. I had to hang up. I then called my best friend who is a manager in the courthouse about checking their docket to see if there were any hearings scheduled for me beginning next week. Of course the answer was no.
I keep getting calls from 904-559-1505 and very scary enough they do have the last 4 numbers of my social, address and previous work and tell me I made an online loan w/ a payday loan for $3000.00 and want me to pay this debt or I will be garnished. I did call them back and ask for their "Business Number" and they told me to look it up. Just wanted to know if this is a legitimate business??? THANK YOU.
8/16/2016 Rec'd call from Debt Mediation (904-595-6186) said they had tried to mail papers but they came back and needed to get correct address. Gave 904-930-4167 to call back. Said had taken out a PayDay Loan for $450 dollars and they wanted to make a settlement in the amount of $156.36 before it went to court and a garnishment.
Said the phone number they contacted me on was given 3 years ago. Odd thing is, I just got that phone number a month ago lol. They told me the PayDay Loan was with My Cash Now in my city. There is no such place in my city, then she said well it could have been on-line. Corrected her again that I never did. While I was talking, I Googled number and found this site and that it was a Scam. I asked her for her 'Professional Business License #" (which they have to provide per FCC, if asked for) she said she didn't know what that was, but that I needed to pay or I would be garnished.
I then told her that the number she was calling from or on was listed as a Scam, she laughed and said I was funny and she hung up. When I tried to call back, it went to a voicemail and I tried several times. I have reported it and the numbers to the FCC, FTC, FBI and IRS. All have a File on Debt Mediation and those phone numbers. So, if you get one, just ask for their 'Professional Business Number' and when they don't have or give, tell them you are reporting to FCC, FTC, FBI and IRS. You won't get any more calls from them.
Scammers. I received a phone call this morning that I owed $500 to this company for a loan allegedly taken out on 1/6/2010. The account they claimed it was deposited into was closed. They claim they found out when they tried to withdraw the money out of the account.
Contacted by an Eric **, "PMC" & Michael **, "Compliance Officer" that claim that I had taken out a loan and defaulted in fraud because of a "closed" account and a check that bounced. They had my most recent work history, an old address and my social security number, which I immediately reported to a REAL identity fraud agency. Apparently I owed $551.41 and they were giving me a "courtesy call" regarding allegations that they feel were not accurate. They claimed that I would only have an hour to respond or they will take "legal action".
I had a loan, paid it off through one of their collection agencies a year ago and I have documentation it was paid. A year later still getting letters and calls. I am being sued or civil action SAR Assoc in plantation - one in Georgia! THEY ARE SCAMMING PEOPLE FOR MORE MONEY!
I just checked my bank account and a deduction was made for the credit report. I was contacted for a loan in a laughable amount. My loan is for medical expenses.
I'm getting threats over the phone that they are taking me to court for August 4, 2010 loan that I paid in full.
I received a grammatically incorrect threatening email in which I was referred to as the Prime Suspect from someone posing as law enforcement on behalf of Cash tree who I've never heard of. The "officer" spelled his own name differently twice in the same email. They claimed I've been avoiding them but what I found strange is that they had my address but never sent any mail to my house, no phone calls on my cell or job # but you progress to a threat and ask me to reply and call them to make payment arrangements??? As they say I was born at night but not last night.
My last interaction with mycashnow was August 2013 (paid in full) which is when Cash tree claims I took a loan from them.. I think Not!! Now I receive an email asking for $800 to repay a $350 loan that was never taken. These are thieves preying on our fear b/c they have very personal information. This is a scam! Don't reply or click on any hyperlink they provide and do not agree to any terms. A true lawsuit will be issued with a docket number from a court house. I've alerted my bank and closed out the account they had on file. I've filed a report with the BBB and FTC for identity theft. All credit bureaus should also be alerted! Their hope is that you'll be afraid to report them or call them to settle agreeing to things you didn't do and inadvertently providing additional information to them. I hope this helps a fellow victim of this terrible scam!! I believe in Karma..
Took out loans with this company and the finance charges were more than they advised. Paid triple what I had borrowed.
