Consumer Complaints and Reviews
I received an email from these scammers.. claiming I was going to be sued but I'm not gullible.. so I did not fall for it. The sad thing is they will get people. Read it closely... spelling errors.. sentence structure errors.. lack of capital etc... A real lawyer would have both his first letter in his, first and, last name capitalized... They used the word bear which is an animal lol instead of the right spelling.. Atrocious. I can't believe people fall for this but sadly they do. Please please share, your experiences so it can save someone. So sad these people are stealing money from people... cowards.
I received a call from a guy called ** stating that "You're approved for loan up to 8000." He said that they'll make a deposit to my bank account and "you need to return it back through MoneyGram." It looked suspicious for me but I said okay. Then, I came across ConsumerAffairs review about the US Fast Cash and same **. Then I called the bank to know about who has made the credit of $579 and they say the name of another lender with whom I have an account with. I said that I didn't dispute anything with them. Bank customer service said "Looks like you may be a part of money scam. Please close the account and open a new account."
In the meantime another deposit was made for $500+ to the bank account. I contacted this person ** and told that unless I receive a letter from you guys stating that why the deposit was made I'm not going to send money back. He started talking rudely "We have to take the legal route. You are holding our money and are doing fraud, and we'll report to FBI." I told him that "You can report to anyone but unless I receive a letter from you, I can't send your money back." Please beware of this people. Don't talk to anyone if you receive a call from US Fast Cash. It was a very bad experience for me. Thanks for ** of St Petersburg, I came to know about this and avoided a mess.
Really, there seriously are people out there that will go to these lengths to get your information. Wow!!! And the grief and the work all day I spent on this trying to prove I never had an Payday Service ever. I see many others have had very similar problems as I have and share your pain so I too shall make others aware of this.
I was contacted by Jack ** from USFastCash in regards to a loan that I had applied for. I was told that I was approved for $2500 w/ payback of $150 for 19 months. I never received any paperwork. They stated that I needed to make a verification of my ability to pay - they deposited $500 in my bank account and then I was to send the money back via a MoneyPak....being a stupid fool I did this procedure 3 times. I'm too trusting for my own good. After 3 times, I was told that I needed to do another personal verification - well to my surprise my banking institution started an investigation of my account and has frozen all my funds. It will take them 7-10 days to investigate and in the end I may be screwed and be liable for the monies that were withdrawn and sent via MoneyPak. My advise - run as fast as you can from these people - they are dishonest and only care about getting your money. I am on Disability Retirement and live on a very tight budget. Any advice?
I received emails from the above named company/companies, had no idea as to what this was about. This emails claimed I had made payday loans in which I have never done, so I responded back indicating I have never nor have I ever had to make paydays loans ever. They persisted with these emails at least once a week. Each time I received an email it always ended with a different name. So I moved forward and called the phone number they listed and the call was answer by someone with a very heavy India accent stating his name as Officer ** (lol). I immediately knew this was either some type of scam or possibly Identity Thief.
I spoke with this person and indicated I had never made a payday loan. He insisted I owed $1700.00 dollars. I laughed and hung up. They even went so far as to download this fake document and emailed to me with name typed on it with the dollar amount he had stated. Of course I knew I had not ever made a payday loan and of course my signature was nowhere to be found on his document. I proceeded to the Police Department with all of the emails as well as this supposedly loan document and filed an Identity thief report. I returned home, email this information back to this so called Officer Smith and I haven't received an email from him or anyone else about this so called loan situation.

Requested a loan they said I can, but credit is Poor... They was to deposit monies from $100 to $1000 dollars into my account. I (STUPIDLY) gave them my checking account number. They was calling me to tell me deposit was made. I finally looked and saw monies was indeed added, but also was my Rent monies was returned. Then these guys finally got through to me and said that they made 2 deposits for the amount of my Rent checks and that I was to send them that monies via Money transfer card via CVS or one of those stores. I called my bank (1st smart thing I did...) They said someone filed a claim stating that those rent checks was FRAUD... so they put the monies back in my account and then these SCUM are telling me that they put the money in there and they want it... BEWARE ALL.
I have been receiving emails from a Robin ** stating that I owe them $1750.00. I have replied several times to the email and called 347-722-8208 it goes straight to a magic line #. I finally got a hold of a person whom hardly spoke any English I told him I need some information regarding this debt I supposedly have pending the guy could not answer any of my questions. Repeated that within 48 hrs of the email I was going to be served and once I was found guilty I would be responsible for $5498.37.
Then their email reads that I should contact recovery assets location at 347-722-8208 between the hours of 9:30-6:30 EST. Once again the person whom answers sound Indian and can't direct me to anyone willing to answer my questions. I will leave it in God's hands and wait the 48 hrs for the 100th time and see what happens.
I just received an email that I owed $1705.00???? First I ever knew! What a scam. I know nothing. I'm reporting this to the attorney generals office. Omg.
Being that I have a limited income, I try to make arrangements but instead they harass my husband who lives in a nursing home and myself who is in the village and they are demanding but I refuse for them to harass me and hang up.
I received an email from a James ** stating that I am going to be prosecuted: (1) violation of federal banking regulation (2) collateral check fraud (3) theft by deception (4) and the biggest one is E.F.T. that is electronic fund transfer
I do not know who this is. I do not have a loan from USA Fast Cash. I had a call from another person that was in regards to this same situation, and he realized that I had filed bankruptcy in 2009 and the loan I had fallen behind on at that time was included. I had paid one off but was told that I would still receive collection attempts because information is sent to many different agencies. This person threatened to contact the FBI and notify my employer. I have reported this to the State Attorney General hoping I can get help because I do not know where this is coming from.
I have asked for the name of the company this person represents, if it is not under USA Fast Cash. He will not provide information so I can investigate where this is coming from. Can you help? There was someone that called my employer and screamed at our receptionist and upset her because he kept calling every 5 minutes. I cannot accept personal call - it is not permitted by my employer. I have to be on the phone with patients and insurance companies. I can't be afraid to answer calls.... If I need to get an attorney, it will be costly and I do not have that money. Thank You.
I don't like it when the USFastCash is closed makes me to get mad. I wants USFastCash open for 7 days and 24 hours. They has no website too.
Once identified as a rep from the legal department (which I could barely understand) I stated that "I called to make payment arrangements." I was told at first I had to pay $1495.67 to resolve it. That was it, no other option. I said "I will have to go to court, I am unable to pay the amount." Once I informed him I was unable to pay that at one time.
He said that I needed to pay $300.00 today 2/18/14 to stop the legal proceedings. I said "which one is it? Go to court or pay $300?" I then said "it would take me 2 weeks to pay that amount, I didn't want to lose electricity during the winter." He said some other words (I couldn't understand) then said "I was not willing to pay the money" and it was going to court.
Again, I really couldn't understand much of what was said. This was after my first contact with him last year and he told me I was pathetic about not being able to pay, after I informed him I was not working due to health problems. Told him "that was rude and he didn't know my situation and I was going to contact an attorney" he tried to apologize. I hung up. At that point he would call 2 to 6 times daily. This company has to be stopped!!!
This is the email I received this morning. Just out of curiosity I called the number on the email and it goes straight to an Indian man with an accent saying that I reached the legal department of 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.
United Legal Investigation Bureau has stated 4 serious allegations against you under the debt collection practices act, section 349b and they are:(1) Violation of federal banking regulation
(2) Collateral check fraud
(3) Theft by deception
(4) and the biggest one is E.F.T. that is electronic fund transfer
Now, this means few things for you. If you are under any state probation or payroll we need you to inform your superior or manager what you have done in the past and what would be the consequences once the case has been downloaded and executed in your name. If we do not hear from you within 48 hours of the date on this letter, we will be compelled to seek legal representation from our in-house attorney. We reserve the right to commence litigation for intent to commit wire fraud under the pretense of refusing to repay a debt committed to, by use of the internet. In addition we reserve the right to seek recovery for the balance due, as well as legal fees and any court cost incurred.
WE HAVE ALL THE RIGHTS RESERVED TO INFORM TO FBI, FTC, YOUR EMPLOYER AND BANK ABOUT FRAUD.
And once you found guilty into the court house then you have to bear the entire cost for this lawsuit $5498.37 which is excluding loan amount, attorney's fees, and the interest charges. You have the right to hire an attorney. If you don't have one or if you can't afford then one will be appointed to you. We believe that this was not your intent and that these steps are unnecessary. We merely require you to contact our recovery asset location department at +1-(347)-828-8535 between 9.30 to 6.30 (EST).
IF YOU WANT TO RESOLVE THIS MATTER THEN IMMEDIATELY CONTACT US THRU EMAIL OR CALL US BETWEEN WORKING HOURS ON +1-(347)-828-8535.
I have been contacted from this company via phone calls and emails for almost a year now. They are stating that I owe a payday loan in the amount of $1495.67 and when the legal part comes into effect I will owe $5498.37. The numbers that they are calling from are all from different states, it is always a man with a thick Indian accent with an American name. They say that I am going to be legally prosecuted in the court house and I will be arrested in 72 hours. The matter is extremely time sensitive. When I asked them to send me information in the mail the answer was they are not authorized to send me any kind of legal documentation. I went to the Sheriff office in my state and showed them the email they told me it is a scam and not to worry but to also contact your department.
I have found out that their rates are too high for my state and probably for a lot of other states. We need our state elected people to support fair deals.
Well, I took two previous loans out and paid them on time automatically, so I could get a slightly larger loan of 450 dollars. I was told after I paid the first two, I was guaranteed the third, and that was an outright lie! They also charged me outrageous interest prices for each loan, over half the initial loan. They got me good. Never again will I use or refer them again. I have let people and friends know on Myspace and Facebook. I hope they get what they deserve!!
My experience is the same as others, noticed a deposit too late and would never get response email or phone line is always busy. I finally sent an email along the lines of the person who threatened to notify Tribal Council and Attorney General, and also said with enough complaints they would be shut down. I said that at the very least I expected a letter indicating that there was a zero balance on the account. That no other transactions would be attempted because I had notified my bank and the financial institution was prepared to initiate an investigation. Lo and behold, a response within 48 hours. Letter showing zero balance and no further transactions. Now to seek justice. If we all stick together we can beat this. We don't have to ashamed or scared. Stand up for yourself.
I've scoured these sites in the past for advice and how to handle the scammers behind US Fast Cash. I told them time and time again to stop calling, which didn't work. Finally, for what it's worth, I have a letter from US Fast Cash stating I have a zero balance, and most importantly, I haven't gotten a call from them in weeks!! I wanted to post here to let everyone know what I did, and maybe others can have the same result.
I contacted my state (Wisconsin) Department of Financial Institutions and filed a complaint. The initial response for the DFI was the same as after filing with the AG and the FTC. They say that these companies are protected and are not required to follow the same laws. The DFI contact said in her email that she would contact them anyways to see if they would cooperate. I wrote a very strongly worded email to US Fast Cash where I stated that although their company is protected, I highly doubt their employees are all Native American; therefore, their individual employees are violating federal law, and I will be seeking advice on filing suit against individual employees.
I sent an email to the Miami Tribal Enterprises (MTE) which is the main business entity of the tribe. I asked them if they were aware of the horrible business practices that are in place, with the protection of their tribal sovereignty. I also mentioned that with enough complaints, the US Senate will start looking into this and their protections can and most likely will be stripped away from them! About a week after these messages were sent, I received an email from the Wisconsin DFI stating they received a response from US Fast Cash, and that my account now has a zero balance. The DFI rep attached US Fast Cash's response/letter to the email for my records, and I haven't received any calls since! I wanted to share this. Hopefully, more people will get the results I've gotten!
This company is responsible for usury with huge out of control late fees, paying hundreds of dollars and only paying back the interest and virtually no principal. Also, there is a problem with complaints. They are calling a former employer, the one used on the loan app constantly and years later, and I called them to ask them to stop because the number is now going to someone's home number and I am not there, and I had a call block on the number I was calling from. They put me on hold and ran some kind of software to unblock the number and then started harassing and talking rudely to the person who lives at the number I was calling from. They will call multiple times a day from different numbers to her phone number, I am told, again, years later...
I had 2 loans deposited into my account, one from US Fast Cash and one from United Cash Loans. The United Cash Loans loan had been previously denied and the money showed up in my account even though it had not been accepted - as I said only a loan app was filled out with a denial email being sent. So, two loans from 2 different companies were not asked for. It is illegal to harass people like this and they say that they can get away with it because they are a sovereign nation under The Miami Tribe of Oklahoma. They have an address in Miami, OK and another one in Shawnee Mission, KS and there was another complaint that they were really operating out of the Cayman Islands and that all of these foreigners were calling people. Do not do business with this company. It is a huge mistake.
The Attorney General of West Virginia sued them, yet they are still doing what they are doing: USURY and HARASSMENT! In California you can complain at Corp.ca.gov.
I have filed complaints with the FTC. I get multiple calls a day from this company stating I owe for a payday loan. I told them I never took any payday loans and that the debt is not mine but they will not stop harassing me.
I got a call today from an Arab-sounding guy. He said that I need to hire a good lawyer because I was going to be arrested for theft, bank fraud, & something else. He was talking fast & said the call was recorded. He read me an affidavit. He said I owe them over $8000 which is bologna because I haven't gotten a loan from them. I asked what the initial loan amount was. He said he doesn't have that information. I asked when I took out the loan... he doesn't know. He wanted me to pay $957 over the phone. He said he will contact my place of work. For some reason, I hung up the phone & called back. The phone line had a busy signal. If it were a real company, why the busy signal? This really messed up my day. I was so nervous I had done something wrong or someone had stolen my identity until I read the reviews everyone else wrote.
US Fast Cash claims that I owe them $500 which I do not. They are an unlicensed company out of the Cayman Islands. They continue to call my home with different numbers and names. They are calling under Randy **, US Fast Cash, and an unnamed collection agency. I have told them continuously that I will not pay them and that they are a scam. They call my home several times a day and now, they are starting to threaten me that they are going to do an international search using my SS # and take all of my money out of my account if I do not agree to pay.
I have filed a complaint with our local police department and they said that these people are a scam. It was happening all over the place. Do not agree or give them any of your personal information. This company is run under MNE services. They will not send documentation. They just continue to get hostile. They cannot do anything to you. They thrive on people’s fear of prosecution. Ignore phone calls and report them as much as you can. I will not be bullied by them. Remember folks, they are unlicensed and illegal. They can’t hurt you.
They had been calling my phone saying I was approved for $1,000 and I can send them $100 and they are going to have my funds deposited. I went to get a Green Dot card and gave him the money. Then he called me back saying to give them $150. Like a dummy, I did and he said it would be there and it wasn't. I am going to wait until morning. If it's not there, I will chalk it up as lost or lesson learned.
I borrowed $350 from USFastCash. My mother-in-law paid off the balance but this company refuses to accept that it has been paid. They talk over me asking me when I will take care of the payment. They call me at least six times a day from different phone numbers to avoid blocking their calls. They will not accept or even investigate the matter. I don't even see them on my credit report and I am refusing payment. I am changing my number. Don't get involved with these people. You will regret it!
They contacted me with this telling me I was pre-approved for a loan up to $6,000. They called for weeks leaving this message, so I finally called back to see what it was actually about. We discussed a loan of $1,500 and a monthly payment of $209.96 for 8 months. After saying, "That sounds good. What were the next steps?" They told me I had to prove that I was able to make the payments and have the $209 available for them to see. Once I could show that amount, then within the hour I would have my loan. I got a Green Dot money card card and within 15 minutes, the money was gone from it. I then got a call from them telling me that there was a problem and that I needed to improve my arrears credit of $650. They wanted me to pay them that amount of money but would give me a deal of $350 and then they would deposit the $1,500, $220 and the $350 within the hour.
They could not tell me anything about how they came up with the money or show me any documents of any kind. They would not even send me anything to review to accept the loan. They then told me that they had already transferred the money, but it was held up and that unless I sent the $350, they would lose their money! He then proceeded to tell me that he was going to lose his job if I did not. I told him I did not care about his job, that he just scammed $220 out of me and that I want my money back! He basically laughed and said the only way to get it back is to sue them, but won't give any contact information or location for the company. He also claimed that there was no one else I could speak to.
After hanging up on them, they have continued to call every fifteen minutes! Needless to say, I did not send any more money and consider it an expensive lesson. Do not respond to them. It is a total scam!
I want to know why I can't set up a payment when I've never been late. Is it because Devon called my job at 8:30 at night? My co-workers said I was not there and he threatened that he would keep calling if they wouldn't put me on the phone. I was not at work that night but I got called the next day into my boss' office for that call. So I called US Fast Cash, spoke to Daniel and some of her other workers. I asked to speak to Devon and they were very rude to me. I also asked to speak to a manager but they didn't let me. Now, I'm calling to set up a payment but they're telling me that I have to go to the complaint department. I don't know why but all I need to know is my balance on my loan.
I took out a $150 loan out in August of 2012. The amount ballooned to $317 within a couple of months. I live on Social Security Disability, which is regular income. They took a couple of small monthly payments out in September and October, which put my account in the negative. I had no choice but to shut my account down but they still keep calling me and harassing me about the fact that I took out the loan, and they are assuming that I will not be paying the loan back. I told them the only way I would be sending them any money is to send them the money in the mail, but they are insisting that I give them my bank account number. If someone could please let me know the address, I'd really appreciate it.
Last time you emailed me, you said a decision would be made in 3-4 hours. It has been days since I have heard from you about receiving the money due to me.
I received a letter the last week my loans were paid off. One thing they forgot was to send the money owed me by one authorized loan and the charges. They took the amount of my loan and took it out of my account. There are numerous excessive charges that need to be refunded for the 32 loans. I have had numerous conversations, telephone and email and no action. It is infuriating me enough to hire a lawyer unless they do something by the end of the week. They say they take 3-4 hours to get to your complaint, fat chance especially if they have to refund money.
Do not believe these guys! They are scammers and will lie to you and tell you what you want to hear for you to take out a loan with them. Here is my situation. After I had gone online to inquire about a loan I saw, they gave me a date of when my first payment would be. I realized I would not be able to make that payment on that date, so I decided not to pursue getting the loan. Then later on that day, I had one of their sales reps call me if I wanted to continue with completing the process for the loan and I said I did not want to because I would not be able to make that first payment on the day they scheduled for me. At that time, the sales rep on the phone told me not to worry about that scheduled date to make that first payment because I would be able to call back in a couple of weeks and ask for an extension till January.
So I decided to go ahead and take the loan and after 2 weeks, I called their customer service department to request that extension and that time they said I was not eligible for an extension because it was my first loan. The customer service rep I spoke to said she was sorry, but there wasn't anything they could do. Then she said they would go back and listen to the recorded phone call and if the sales rep misrepresented US Fast Cash that he would be reprimanded. So in the end, they misrepresented their company and purposely lied to me so I would take out the loan. Now I am screwed for Christmas because I will not be able to make that first payment, and because I won’t have the money in my bank account on that date. I was told I will be charged an NSF fee of $30!
Do not take a loan out from these guys! I wish I would have read the reviews and complaints before I decided to take this loan out with US Fast Cash. As you can see a lot of bad reviews and they have screwed over a lot of other people!
