I received a phone call from Lynn ** phone 786-342-1327 claiming to be from Advance America located in Florida, but claims they have locations all over America. He claimed I had been approved for a loan in the amount of $4000. Claimed he was recording the call and asked all kinds of questions regarding the loan amount, monthly payments etc. He said I would need to get a vanilla verification coupon for $250 and that it would only show a positive or negative but not the amount on the voucher. He would not be able to see the balance. Claimed there was no upfront charges and that someone would come to my house with a contract to sign. I called the local Advance America store and was told that this is a scam because they only do business in their stores not over the phone. I did not send any funds but am writing this in hope that it will prevent someone from being scammed as this definitely is a SCAM verified by the company itself. Thank you.
I received an email from Alex ** saying I was approved for $5000 if I sent proof of income in the amount of $500! I called the guy to verify. He is middle eastern and rude. He told me he was going to ** my ** off because I lied to him. He was rude and foul and it is disgusting this is allowed, in any culture.
I got scammed as well. I got an email from Advance America saying I was approved for 2000 and they called me and told me that since my credit score was so low I had to pay 150 to get the funds and to put the money on an iTunes card. And after that they told I had to pay documentation fee of 375 and I told them I didn't have that kind of money and they were telling me I had to borrow it from someone. And I took it out my daughter's party money and then they told me to get another iTunes and I did. And they said that I had the last step and give them 445 for a fee and the guy was yelling at me and I told him I wanted my money back. And they told me no and I was so frustrated that I told him that I will sue him and he said "I bet you damn sure you will not get a penny out of it." So now I'm so stress, how am I going to do my daughter's party. I just want my money back, how can I?
A borrower fraudulently used my phone number for a loan. Three times I tried to reach an operator to address this. Both times I was on hold for over an HOUR and still had no one pickup. I couldn't get through. I understand they need to call a lot to try to collect, that's the nature of the business but I believe the hold times are a scam to get people to not call back. Ludicrous! I can't get this addressed. Now I have some collections attorney firm calling as well that I can't reach. I am writing the BBB about this. This has gone on for almost a year.
This company is a RIP OFF. They have took me for $500.00 in Walmart gift cards. I am disabled and had got in a very tight bind and was needing a loan and went online looking for a loan. And got a call from a phone number in New York **. Well (Chris was the first person I spoke with) they called me and said I was approved for a $10,000.00 loan and gave me a payment amount for the next 48 months and I could handle that. But I would need to go to Walmart and get a $500.00 gift card and call him. Well STUPID me did as I was told. By the way Walmart does not do 500.00 cards. Well I got two cards for $250.00 each. I gave Chris the card numbers. He (Chris) said I would hear back from them in 60 to 90 min.Well I heard back from a Sr. loan officer (by the name of Justin **). He said everything was approved but I would need to send them another $500.00 to cover the taxes on the loan. I advised him I was now total broke and could not do this. He ask when I could send it. I told him it would be the 14th of March. He said ok he would call back then. And I started doing research and ran across this site. I have tried to call the phone number today and I get a busy signal or it tells me the call won't go through. I was going to try and get my $500.00 back but after reading all the complaints I see I can kiss that money goodbye. (PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THEM. THEY ARE A TOTAL RIP OFF.)
I have never took a cash advance loan with this company ever! I have asked for proof on several emails, also for a number to reach them. I googled them, obtained number 773-455-4908 which is not in service.
There are two Indian men. Well one of two with very American sounding names posing as agents for loans. They called me. Said "You applied for loan. You can get 8 grand. Congrats." These jokers need to be shut down. America will not put up with this bull crap anymore. The area code was 217 Texas. I think they harassed me so much I am going on the fed gov site for scams. Don't send Western Union or Green Dot card to these losers!!! This is disgusting behavior. Green Dot card my ass. Real loans don't ask for money upfront. Duh. That's why it's a loan folks!
Sometimes, during these tough economic times, hard working and honest people will attempt to erase financial debt out of sheer desperation and hope that someone will help them. Cash Advance America will make false promises, give you their word and rob you blind without any remorse for doing so or any heart. These heartless individuals will make you go to Walmart, Walgreens or 7/11 stores, make you purchase iTunes cards, put money on them and give them the code on the back of the card with the promise (no paperwork to sign in advance) of putting $money$ into your checking account or debit card. I've heard of some people giving as much as $2,000. They have accents like they're from India but their names are American names. Like Tom ** and Brian **. They are based out of New York. DO NOT answer their texts either. Somehow, they are tied into the same informational page as the payday loan companies, access your information and they'll call or text you promising cash loans up to $10,000!!! And with no paperwork to review and/or sign. Too good to be true. So please don't go through the same pain and heartbreak that others I've seen and spoken to have experienced. They prey on the weak, tired, overworked and those with little or no education (no pun intended). Remember, they have accents like they're from India or Sri Lanka. Our government should have stricter laws against lazy and heartless individuals such as these. Good luck and God Bless.
On July 5, 2018 I received a call from Advance America saying that I was approved for a $5000 loan. The first person that I spoke with was a lady (sounded Indian) informing me that I was approved for the loan and what my monthly fee would be and for how long. Ex: 153 for 36 months. I was then transferred to another person that would give me additional information. That person's name was "David **" also (Sounded Indian) asking me to verify my banking information in addition to giving him my login Id and my password. When I asked why did he need to know my login Id and password of my bank account, it said it was for "verification purposes". David told me that they need to put money into my account and I needed to send it back to them. I was instructed to go to a 24 hr Wal-Mart between the hours 6:00 and-7:00 am. I told David that MoneyGram is not open at that time, he said all I needed was to be at the store at that time and he would call me and tell me what to do. He said "different payment options". Well I didn't trust David, after I googled and found comments that were about this same company. I was so nervous that I called my fiancé and told him about it, and asked him what did he think? He told me don't deal with them, he thinks that it's a scam. I then logged into my bank account and changed my password. I'm very thankful for the information that I found on this site. I hope this doesn't happen to anyone else.
I was in need of about $900 to pay off some bills and I found Advance America, rather they found me and they told me I was approved for a $5000 loan and it would only cost me $138/m. I contact them and they said I had to pay $150 (for whatever reason I forgot). So the next week I got paid at one of my jobs then I committed to pay the $150. Next they told me that my state government have a hold on my account on the bases of a "suspicious transaction". It was a hold of $283. I couldn't pay right off the bat so I waited three more weeks. I so happen to have a moneypak voucher (greendot) because I was going to pay off a bill. So I call them and they told me that they would add the remaining balance. Next thing that was told is that I need to pay a Western Union balance of $378 and the funds would be available in a matter of minutes. I ask them how do I know without a certain of doubt that I would receive the money if I come up with this amount. They said that they were 110% sure. I told them I don't have it but I can borrow it from a friend if I do have that guarantee that I would receive it before the next day. So after that they gave me a reference number for Western Union. When I got to Western Union they said there were no transaction made with that reference number. Now I lost connection with a good friend, I am completely broke and made a debt hole I was in much bigger. If I could sue I would for the amount of $1028 plus pain and suffering with emotional distress. I don't want anybody go through what I been through. I wish this company will lose all their business. Their number is (803)232-5865.
Fortunately I do my homework. And course there was an Indian man in the world with an accent want me to send a deposit via Western Union which was a red flag and of course my phone number in the email you sent said forms from nothing legit as a business would keep their email addresses not that of a personal address and sprockets mail Gmail Yahoo etcetera etcetera. And of course he was constantly calling trying to push me to take the loan is another red flag of course. And I went ahead and did more homework and get it as much correspondence and information from him I possibly could.Also when you sent the attachment for loan approval and signature of course it looks fake and something out of the coloring book. I continue to let a man know that we call my local advanced cash location in there for how he wanted the fun of the deposit transferred to him via Western Union. Of course you will not comply and agree with this said phone call to my local location.
I travel around 80 miles round trip to continue my business with Advance America in Cheboygan MI, reason being the two women I deal with are wonderful. I consider the girls friends and they go out of their way to make me feel that the trip is worth it.
I don't know who In the hell these 2 Indian guys are. One is named Jordan & forgot the other guys! My boyfriend received a text messaging saying I need to contact this attorney office before they issue me a warrant and come to my house or work! He told me they are suing me for different allegations like 3 counts of fraud and I needed to pay 400 in the next 2 hours or they will send my lawsuit to the sheriff's department! I asked them some information and they couldn't tell me. All they said is if I wanted to clear my name I needed to go to Walmart or CVS to Western Union to send $400 to Sunil ** or I will go to jail! I don't know who these people are but they need to be caught. I'm going to see an attorney tomorrow to stop the cowards from threatening and harassing me. They have my social security number and they were so mean yelling at me to send them money ASAP!!! I call the number back and you can't I can't find this attorney office they are calling from and now that I'm reading everyone else's comments they are fakes and scamming people!!! These people need to be caught ASAP. I was upset all day stressing out about how I am going to pay them back due to losing hours at my job and asked to make payments and they said I am a broke girl who needs to go find money before the cops get me! They were treating me with disrespect and kept saying if I don't rush to send them money then I will get in huge trouble! I need someone's help!! I don't need this kind of trouble. I didn't do fraud. I would never do that. I am an honest person with good intentions and I'm only 25 and to be dealing with this kind of stuff is horrible.
WEll I took out a check advance loan. And lost my job so I could not pay it on time and said that I would try to get up there the following week and they said fine. Well needless to say I didnt not make it up there that day so they started calling my refences, and one of them was my now ex boy friend who I am trying to stay far away from and they called him and told him everything. Why the were calling, what I didnt and didnt do. I used to work for a financial company and I know the laws we were not alowd to discuss anything with a 3rd party just that we are trying to get a hold of that person and a name and number. And that was it nothing else was said unless the customer gave you permission.
Okay the guy Kevin ** had told me that I was approved for $5000 but that I needed to give him $200 and a Green Dot MoneyPak voucher which I called Advance America to see that there's one right here by me and they said that it was a scam to not give him any information. Have anybody else had the same problem?
They called and told me I was approved for a loan up to $5000.00. They asked for a $145.00 verification fee via Western Union which I did. They asked for my address and credit card number. They said it would be on my card in 20 mins then they called back telling me they helped 2 other customers before me. Money would be on my card in ten minutes. No money on card, nor are they answering the phone. What can be done about it?
Received an email stating I owed money to this company. Seem to have a lot of my info but I never got any money from this company. Told me that I was going to be served to pay a lot fees for lawyers, if I did not pay them what I owed. So I started asking question where they were but then the guy started saying that I refuse to pay back the money I owe to a payday loan. Please don't try this online, that where they got my info from. He said it was 11/2013 when I got it.
This place is a scam. The number I called 13013624408 asking for money 2 times. They got me the first time but not this time so be aware.
I don't generally check my email, but for some reason I decided to check it. There was an email from Advance America saying I was approved for a cash loan. I never applied for one. So I checked the email and it had someone else name with my email address. Not really sure what they actually did, but I'm sure it's illegal. Try to call the number on the form. No answer of course. American government needs to do something about these foreigners scamming American people.
They catch poor/fair pwoolen that have been turn down by conventional loan companies. They use a blackjack flash drive to bounce numbers. Other number is all over the United States are there non traceable. This device also picks off randomly used numbers and you will get a squelch like a fax number which is common used. If it's too good to be true, then it is too good to be true. I got verbally abusive with them when they were insistent about me hurrying to a store to load a card. I cursed at them that it is not how business is done and I am not traveling 20 miles to buy a card and call them back to get clearance for a loan. Beware people and don't fall for it... If they are overly insistent move on, and get another job, ask relatives for help. Don't give these jerk-weeds your hard earned money.
I have been getting calls from numbers with Chicago area codes. I have not applied for any loans. I just started getting these calls. I am from Chicago but live in Orlando for years now. The guy is Indian. Same guy, different number. When I called and asked why I was receiving calls, he said "love you", and hang up. Then when I called and said I am receiving multiple calls and I want to know why the number hang up. Then I registered this number, which is new, on Do Not Call and called and said, "I am on national do not call and I am reporting you right now for soliciting me when I did not give you my personal information."
I got a email from advance America cash advance so I called the number. Only needed a small 200 dollar loan to last till my next paycheck. They told me I qualify for a loan is up to $20,000. I told them I only need a $200 loan to last me until I got paid. The man said don't you want 2000 to 20,000. I then said what's the rate and payment on 2000. He told me, so I said ok we can do that. He then said he needed to check my checking account to see if I had 100 dollars. I only had 80 dollars in there. He then said can't you borrow 20 dollars from someone. I told him to forget and hung up on him. So he called me back 20 times in 15 mins. I told him he was a scam and needs to quit taking people's hard earn money and to get a real job. So he called me several bad names but I don't care. He at least didn't get my money.
What a scary experience. To be in need of predatory lending and then be contacted by foreigners who are obviously in the business of fraudulently stealing money from Americans. I've seen two this week. This company went as far as to call me after I blocked the number. 18 times they called me after I changed my user ID and password at my bank. Then I received a call and it was my picture, my work#, and my first and last name that showed up. I answered it and asked "What the ** are you doing with my ID information." He hung up. No money taken yet, but I'm really worried they have all my personal information. I used been verified to find out that none of their information is traceable. That's when I backed out.
Well I received a text for a 1000 dollar loan. After reading all the complaints; I had the same experience as the rest of you. A Hindu guy named ** spoke to me and said the same thing to me. Go to CVS or Walgreens or Western Union and make sure you have your Debit card with you. Now get this..... he said I need you to get to either one as soon as possible. I am going to wire some money to your Debit card and then you are going to send it back to me right away. Now he tells me that he will deposit me the 5000 dollars I qualify for. By the way.... All of those telephone numbers you call I also have. They show up as.....Calls from Kansas.... Texas..... Wyoming.... Minnesota. I have all these numbers. Oh. ** said "everything is OK don't worry." He said "I am going to text you a confirmation number." I NEVER GOT ANY OF HIS TEXTS! He then said he spoke his boss and since TIME was important... they decided to deposit the money to my account and he was rushing me to get to the bank. First he said "I'll send you 500 dollars," then he said 650...then it was 850.... Finally he said "I'm going to deposit 1200 dollars to your account and hurry and send it back." Real desperation!!!! Well I received the money but didn't send it back to see how REAL they are. BOY... DID I START TO GET TEXT MESSAGES LIKE CRAZY!!!!!! AND ALL THE PHONES CALLS TOO!!! From...Texas....Kansas...Minnesota... All the numbers you received and other numbers too. I calling the FBI and the Consumer Affairs on TUESDAY. Yes remember the name... **. Remember this number also.. 1-857-776-7194. Mr. ** HINDU speaking man! His so called supervisor is another Fake. Be Alert. I have a total of 8 numbers they call from. Some you call back and they don't work. Others... all have the same people answering.
I applied and was approved for a $300 loan. Seemed great. Then they call me and said I had to MoneyGram the first payment. I did. My money was supposed to be deposited within an hour. In hour I another call saying I had to pay a nd tax fee of $240. Paid that. The 182 and 240 were to be reimbursed with my 3000 in an hour. An hour goes by and then they tell me I needed to 370 for an insurance fee. Now I flipped my lid. I wanted everything emailed me to in writing. I got an email not formal... with no name on it, all these fees were supposed to be returned. When I started feeling scammed and questioned all the fees I knew I was not going to get any money. I asked for a refund of the crammed money. They told me it would take 28 days. Again I questioned why. They assured me how they are a good company. Obviously not. I have been scammed and they have 422 dollars of my money that I feel I will never see.
Got an email saying I was approved for a $7000 personal loan. I have not used the real "Advance America" before. So was listing to what James ** had to say... At first James ** calls me, **, and proceeds to tell me I can have the $7000. They will deposit $986.00 and I can pay it back with $250 payments for 24 months. Meaning I would pay $1000 interest over the course of the loan. So I agree to listen to the terms while researching phone numbers, company name, etc. Red flags came up when I typed in the name of the company and put in IL pay loan. The contact number that he called from was **. I would call the number back and it would say you're not allowed to call this number from this phone.James ** wanted me to send them as much money as I could starting with what is available in the account from the fake deposited that they created, and tried to put in my account. The bank tried to approve the money that was placed into the account, but they contacted me and let me know that the deposited was invalid and that any money withdrawing from the account would result in a negative balance.I keep all the emails that the person James ** sent to me and the phone messages and account number used to try and deposit money into my bank account. There was no loan agreement sent to me. There was no logo in their emails. They used a personal email address with their so called business email (**)? "If you will not pay this amount back to us then we are sorry to say you that we have to freeze your account and your ssn for making a fraud with your company then you will never be able to open any bank account."
First off Advance America in VA Falls Church and the District Manager in the DC Area have stolen from people. They deposited checks when they didn't have permission plus they deposited checks when people didn't owe what they owed. If you write a check 4 months prior and you owe $300.00 left in an installment loan. That is against the law to cash a check for what a person doesn't owe. And then on top of things they made false and slander statements on the people. The district manager ** is so so unprofessional. Never go there EVER even if you need $1. They are so corrupt.
They emailed me said I was approved for a $5000 dollar loan. All I needed to do was give them my bank info. It would be in the bank. When I went to get it it wasn't there. So I called them and they said I had to send $200 thru Western Union to some bogus name. I did that and they said they told me I had to send another $475. And I did that and I called the guy again. He then told me he needed another $498. I told him I could not do that. He got very rude with me. I then told him just to put the money back in my bank. He hung the phone up on me. I called him back. He acting like he didn't know what I was talking about and would not give my money back. I turn that company in to the BBB.
This guy named Michael ** and said that I have received money via American cash advanced and DID not pay the loan back and they were going to file papers with the Attorney General’s Office if I DID not go to RadioShack and get a green dot pack card in the amount of $390. And then when I told him I DID not have the money he yelled at me and then hung on me. I called him back and he answered the phone and then began to yell at me again. And then he is going to file papers with the Attorney General’s Office, and to prove himself. He needs to be caught like right now.
Mr. ** called from Saint George, SC on March 27, 2012 and stated he was an investigator. He talked about a bounced check that I had written in 2001to Advance America. He claimed that I was going to have a warrant issued for my arrest on March 28, 2012, case file #**. He stated that if I didn't pay him the $457.00 that day or at least half and the rest would be due at the end of the month. He also stated that a judge would sign a warrant the day after that and that would cost me $300.00 more. He stated that I would be arrested that same day and that my driver's license would be taken away. This is way past the statue of limits. I spoke with the Sheriff's office and they said all that can be done is a judgement placed on me. I'm tried of being harassed daily by the company. Could you please help me correct this matter so these phone calls will stop? We're in 2012 and this is the first I've been called on this since 2001. Thanks for your help.
Well I got an email stating I'm approved for a 5000 loan and of course I called it and the gentlemen was Indian stating I was approved. They had all my information so he ask me for my banking mobile access in order to deposit the money so I did, not thinking they deposited 990 in my account. I had to go buy 900 in iTunes cards, call them and send them pictures of cards front and back and the numbers. Then he said that it was late that the funding department was close. So in the middle of night got a text from bank saying a large deposit was in my account for 2500. So the very next day they started calling me at the crack of dawn, told me to go to bank and take all the money out and send it MoneyGram that they would deposit the loan for 5000. Well I sent it but as of today no money. My bank account is negative 3300. My work check was deposited, the bank took it because it's negative. I had to call the bank and explain everything, called FTA and BBB and had to put fraud on my social for ninety days. And to this day they call me and text me and harass me. I told them how do they live with themselves scamming people out of money. Also the checks that were deposited from a Juan **, ask them who that is. Also the guy said his name was Brandon ** manager from Advance America. Never again will I apply online for a loan. These people ought to be caught and shut down and go to jail. And the checks were fraud that's why my account is negative. I called everyone on this. People please don't be scam by Advance America.
These guys are strange. I had been trying to get an emergency loan and tried several off of Google search. Got a call saying I was approved and they repeated my info back to me so I assumed it was legit. James said I had to go to my bank, withdraw what was deposited, then take to a B of A or Wells Fargo and deposit in their account. I went along with it for awhile and then when thinking about it I realized they had never even had me sign and return any documentation so when we talked again to finalize everything I said I was uncomfortable and wanted to stop.This guy got upset, said I repeatedly assured him I was serious and played as if I was screwing him. Then he said they already deposited the $5,000 into my account. I said, if it's there I'll continue. Meanwhile I talked to my banker about my suspicions and let him know what was going on. We checked the balance and it was still overdrawn at the amount that was correct with no deposits pending. I called James and said it didn't go through. He repeatedly said it did and we were in a stall. He then said he would check with his accounting guy. On call-back he said he wanted my user id, etc to get in which I said he doesn't need that.After this they somehow got into my account, changed my password and enrolled me in BillPay. I called to confront them, he said he didn't change anything and that they were not going to loan to me because of my apprehension before. Luckily I had froze anything coming in to my account already and immediately call my banker to notify him. Changed user id, password and security questions. Am closing my account also.
I was very pleased with Advance America. They helped me greatly with my financial needs. Unis & Carl were very understanding, made me feel very comfortable. With the help of Advance America, i got back on track. I know in the future if I need they will be there!
I was sent a email claiming I was approved to get a cash advance loan up $5000. I was in a desperate need for cash and the things started sounding right until he asked to send money through a wire transfer on western union. It was my last $100 I sent thinking I would get the money in my account. Called to speak with the people. They claim it takes a minute to post money in account. Money never made to account so I asked for refund. Stated there's no refund and I would have to give more personal information in order to get loan money in account. I had already giving bank account information to put money in account. I should have follow my instincts. I'm usually researching things like this for scams and never got scammed. I hear others have but this time I think they caught me at a bad time. I have been feeling all kinds of things to try and bust this operation from getting other people. I was very upset but you know what? It's just a matter of time before they are exposed. It's sad how people don't have a heart and will take from hard working people such as myself and you take them for granted. This world is a crazy place. I hope everyone who been taking for granted able to resolve issues.
Advance America payday advances. A $400 loan will cost you $60 every 2 weeks. They will allow you to continually roll this loan over and keep charging you an additional $60. This can go on for months and close to a year. They are not clear that your bi-weekly installment does not impact the principal of the loan. Like credit cards and other loan institutions, they need to be required to create a minimum payment that impacts the principal. They do not provide you with any other resources that could help you. They also need to be responsible to run a credit report to see if you are credit worthy. They should be required to do a reference check to make sure that their clients understand that a payday loan will end up costing them a minimum of twice the loan amount. They need to disclose to you every 30 days "By the way, your $400 loan has cost you $120 in fees". They need to be limited on the maximum amount of fees they can obtain.
SCAM SCAM SCAM!!! I received an email stating that I was approved for an loan (which I was applying for a loan but a minimum of $300-$400). The email that I received stating I was approved for a loan for $10,000. At first I was skeptical, and they also send me a text to give them a call. I contacted the number which is **. His name was Roy ** with an Indian accent. He stated I was approved for a 10,000 loan. He verified my info, name, address, bank routing number, account number and bank name. I really didn't have to say much but yes that's correct. I ask him what was the minimum amount I can borrow. He stated 2,000. I said "Ok and how much will I need to pay back?" He stated "$189.00 amount will deduct from your acct" and ask me when will be a good payment date. I stated the end of the month. He said "Ok I see you have a low credit score so let me speak with my transaction department so we can get this money wire to your checking account." I said ok. In my head I was "$189 is great to pay a loan back." I called back and ask "How much is it for me to take the maximum because I can use a head start in life to pay all my bills off." He stated "It will be $305.00/month." I was like "Ok great. Let's do this." He called back later and said "Because your credit score is so low we have to verify your account to make sure we are able to trust you and see if your account is active." I said "Ok. What is it I need to do?" He ask me for my user ID, name and password to my SunTrust bank account (my dumb ** wasn't thinking) so I gave it to him. He called back and stated he will need to deposit a check in my account to make sure it was active and said ok. He then stated he will call back once the transaction department let him know what the amount will be. He contacted around 7:19pm and he let me know the amount will be 1992.40. I was like okay. He said "The funds will be available after midnight. But make sure you deduct the money out before your bank opens." I said ok but still was thinking the bank only let $600.00 be available to the acct. He contact me at 8am and was telling me to go to a CVS or Walgreens to get a MoneyGram, (never did a MoneyGram before) but the MoneyGram was down so he stated "Let me contact my transaction manager and see is there another way." I ask "Can I just my debit card since it's in my account. He stated no. He called back and ask me to get an iTunes card and purchase one for $500 and $100. I said ok. I didn't care because it wasn't my money. I check my SunTrust account and it showed that he deposited four checks in my account but in small increments that equal of to 1992 ($489, $375 example). He contacted me the following day 08/19 and stated "Oh because you haven't sent the money back and the bank has it on hold I will just deposit the money into your account and you can just deduct it from your 10,000." So I ask "Are you going to wire the money because if you keep sending checks the bank will assume that it is fraud and I'm thinking you are doing fraud." He rest assured me and was like "Ms. ** don't worry. This is not a scam and I'm with you every step of the way." I was like okay. Later on that evening 08/22 he deposit 1,240.70 into my account. When I woke up to check my account to see if it was still there the bank frozen my account. I contacted them and they stated they terminated my account due to violation, and I'm like WHAT? I contact this ** (Roy) and told him what was going on. He stated "Go to your bank. Let them know what's going on and they will unfreeze your acct but don't use our company name because we have bad reputation." (Then I knew I been scam) And I'm like "If I can't use your damn company name then what the hell I supposed to tell the bank?" He stated "I don't know. Just tell them you deposit the checks." I given this ** man the business. The address they link to the documents is to a hotel in DC, the other numbers on the documents link to him. I contacted another number that was link to the paper email to me and he answer the phone but claim his name was Ray and I explained to him what was going on and he stated oh "I'm so so so so sorry to hear." So I he ask "Did you give your bank info?" And I stated yes and he was like "Why would you do that?" I automatically knew it was him. I ask to speak with a manager. He stated "Oh we don't have any managers available right now but he will be available after 10am." He stated there was no need for me to speak with a manager because he training to be a supervisor and I was like "I don't care. I would like to speak with your supervisor." He would not let me do so. He stated "My manager name is Paul **. Bunch of **. I let Mr. Roy and Ray know I was on to their scam. He kept calling like it was nothing going on. Roy called back and stated "For the inconvenience we will just send you the money through MoneyGram and Western Union but you will have to pay us the fees to send it to you." I told him "I am not sending a dime and why am I sending money to receive money?" Please be aware I will upload pics as well as videos later today.
I how to receive several loan applications with PDF files attached and sent to me saying I was approved for a loan. I forwarded all this information. Jay paid the information and websites to verify that this was all fraudulent. Made the extra mile and call Dad America and reported to their comments fraud department. Nothing was done. There's no file case or number or anything was given to me. In fact, the lady made me send it all to comments email instead of a fraud dept. Seems like this company doesn't give a ** about any of it. I sent the name of the person and up address all PDF files to them from criminals and they didn't even report any of it... What a shame. I spent money to get info for them. For nothing.
I had a check return that did not clear. They had told me that I could make this check good over 4 payments - one per pay period. They redeposited the entire check today without my knowledge. I have always gone on the Friday after my payday to make the payment. I had never been told differently. When I first called about the account being posted - newest employee lied and stated that the manager was out of office. I called a secondary number and the manager was in the office. She was very rude to me as I explained that I was planning on being there today. Little did I know she had redeposited the check already. I appreciated them helping when I needed help but then I will not promote their business nor will I use it again. Customer service has always been poor and almost deceitful at this branch.
I received a call from this guy named ** saying that I was approved for a loan for up to $3000. Gave me the information of Advance America online web site (330) 460-5952 1417 S Arlington St 172 Akron OH 44306. I am in a very bad situation right now that I applied for a loan because am getting evicted from my apartment. He told me my payments would be $200 a month for 18 months. Stupid me believed them because of my need. He said that because of my credit that I need to go buy a card Green Dot to Walgreens, and deposit the 1st month's payment and that the fund would be in my account with in 30 min. Stupid me did that and gave them the info! Wow, that was the only money I had for my rent and now am in the streets with no home. After that was done, another guy called me saying that I need to send $193 for the loan tax, that it was the only thing holding the funds to be transferred to my account. I told them I had no more money and I started crying because that was the only cash I had for my rent! Then he said, "Don't worry. You can pay this later. I am transferring the fund right now." The money was never sent, and I can't get my money back! I really need help on this please. I have no home or no money and I don't know what to do anymore!
I want to first off say thanks to everyone that has posted on here about these people and sorry if you got scammed. I was in need of some money and needed help. So I applied for a loan online and this company called me saying "we see you applied for a loan, we can help, we can get you 10,000 dollar put in your account in 30 mins." Then as we are getting into loan this Brian guy tell me I will need to pay 575 first before they send the money and you can't pay it with your bank card, you have to go to a walmart and get a green dot card or any 7 11 store. So I hang up and over three day period kept on getting call from them so I answer the phone because I really need money but I told them send the money first and then I will pay what I'm supposed to and he said "we can't do that you have to pay your state taxes first," and he said "to insure you I will send a copy of your loan papers" and I said "ok but I want to look up reviews on y'all first and I will call you back" and I just so happen to see everything this loan company told me. Everybody said it on here - the same thing - they are a scam and are hurting people and I hope someone stops them. Thanks for reading and hope people read this so they don't get scammed.
They changed the old manager almost one year ago, and the new manager has bad customer service. He never attends to the customer. I was present when somebody said "I have a question", and he answered always that "I am very busy. I don't have time for stupid questions." And not just one time but always. When he was a regular employee, he was nice and cooperative with the customer, but now he is stupid.
I was told I can get a loan for $2000.00 and pay back $190.00 a month for 12 months but first I had to get a MoneyPak for $200.00 to start the process. I questioned them and a man who called himself Mike ** said it will be reimbursed with the loan. I did the MoneyPak with great reservation. After a few hours, I called to see when the money was going to be put into my account. Mr. ** said there was a problem and I would have to give another MoneyPak for $112.00. When asked why, he said because there is a hold on my account due to poor credit and that will lift it. I stupidly did a MoneyPak for $113.00 because I wanted to make sure it went through. Mr. ** called to say it has to be exact so I did another one for $112.00.After the MoneyPak numbers was given to him, I was told a courier will be at my door with two cash cards for $1,111.00 each. As you guess, no cards came. The next day, when I called Mr. ** said the IRS took the money and being it was released, I had to pay back the loan. I told him I wasn't going to do so being I never received the money. He gave me a phone number to call to figure things out.I called the IRS and was told they don't take loan money (something I knew). I called Mr. ** back and was told he made a big mistake and no longer was with the company and I am not getting my $425.00 back because I gave it to them. The man who said his name was Steve ** said he couldn't care less if I called the IRS, that I could call Mr. Obama for all he cared, I still am not getting my money back.
I received an email stating I could get a loan from $1000 to $10000. I decided to go for 5000. They verified information for personal as well as banking. I thought Advance America was a reputable company. So went along. So when they said they would deposit 1000 and then I would send it back I thought it sounded strange. Then they asked me for my banking info on my phone app. I said it would not work since I bought another phone. That is true but what kind of idiot did they take me for. I said I would have to find the info in my password book. The 2 people I spoke to had a thick Indian accent. I hope they don't try and get money from my account. I don't have much and I am retired. If you see an email from Advance America, call your local company. These people I spoke with are scammers and lowlifes.
Advance America called me and said I was approved for up to 5000 cash loan. I had to Western Union them 75 dollars then they said they needed to get my credit report fixed which still isn't. They ripped me off another 450 dollars, now they are demanding another 450 for verification and still no loan. I told them I wanted and they still fail to give, numbers are from Missouri and California. If any attorney can help with no fees please call **. The number that keeps calling me is a 209 number, his name is Johnny. If anyone could be of help no fees call me.
I have been a customer of AA for a couple of years, always made my payments on time. On my last loan I entered into an EPP. Made the first three payments, but on the fourth I had written the due date down wrong. It was due on the 12th of August, and I thought it was due on the 15th. So AA sent my original check in for $287.50, when I only owed them $64.00 I have overdraw protection, so my bank made good on the check, but charged me $33.00 for NSF. I would like to know if this is legal? Why are they allowed to deduct more from my bank than what I owe them.
I have been reviewing the reviews from others dealing with Advance America, suspect this is same group who took me for $1100, using my Bank of America info, CVS, and iTunes. Unlike the other people, I was not asked for any fees upfront... Fact is all I had in my checking account was $11.23. I was told by the scammer "not to worry," that they would deposit $1100 into my bank account for verification purposes. All I had to do was go to CVS, and purchase $1100 of iTunes, scrape the silver off the back and give them the numbers and then $5000 would appear in my account. That $5000 never appeared, neither did the $1100. Oh, I stupidly went to CVS, and by some miracle was NOT rejected for my purchase of $1100. Remember I only had $11.23 in my account, so why would CVS approve an $1100 purchase.Here comes the kicker, the scammers pretending to be me (or so I am led to believe by BofA Fraud employees), called the bank and disputed two transactions where I transferred money from my BofA account to my Fidelity Investment account back in July for exactly $1100. Even though I don't have money to steal, they managed. Now, my balance was negative $1082.27. All this happened on Aug 3rd, I called the bank and told them what had happened, and asked to close my account. They refused... Guess what, my SS benefit comes Aug 10th, and my bank absorbs all $1082.27, leaving me with $920, which certainly is not going to be enough to pay my rent on Sept 1st.I have reported all this to SSA, APS, OCC, FBI, FTC, APPLE, the local Police Dept, and the TX Attorney General, and of course to CVS. Not only was I robbed by Cash Advance America, but by my own Bank of America, who I have been banking with since 1997 when they were NationsBank. I bet if I was a customer of BofA with a million bucks of assets, they would have called me pretty quick to report that someone was calling them to dispute transactions that I had made. I guess now that I am 72 yrs old - I needed to be taught a lesson. Lesson learned.
Got an email from Advance America advance loan company I thought - was out of Florida. Said I was approved for a loan for $4000. Now I talked with a fella named Mark **, and said things looked good and I could have a loan - no problem, since I couldn't get a regular loan - credit - so he said to start it and on good faith not know you or me. $250 was needed to start, and to get a Green Dot MoneyPak for this amount + $4.95=$254.95. Okay , I did what he requested, and told to wait 45 minutes and he would have the money to my account. Time went by, he calls back. There is a hold fee for Insurance. Amount was $888+$9.80=$897.90. Stupid me did it - he said it would be in my account in an hour (previously he said no problem this money was going to be reimbursed with the loan). To my dismay - no money in my account, and he stated that he needed $362 on another Green-pak for interstate charges for money transfer from Florida to New York. Nope, haven't sent it yet! He says when I get the $362 and give him the numbers, he will give me the code and # to the Western Union and send it that way so I would be reimbursed then for the extras. Well I am really ticked here - he said he couldn't refund me!! What do I do next, help = reported to internet cyber and FBI and a few other places - any help here - retired and just wanted to pay up some bills with a decent loan at 12.5%. Now royally fed up and want my refund Now!!!! PH# 786-342-1327.
I applied for a payday loan/short term pers loan. The above named co contacted me. To get the loan I needed I was required to verify myself with a $120 prepaid card, and a few of $80. After both they said they were processing it. No word back & they blocked my #.
Ok yesterday I got a message on my e-mail stating that I borrow 400 and some from the company online from my old address and whoever did it had my social security number also, but I have not borrow money from any company. They said that they put the money into my account but there's was no 400 in my account and I called this number (317)956-3379 to talk to somebody yesterday and they hung up on me twice. I was asking them for the account number that they sent the money too but I did not get. They said my case # was **. If I did not get the money, I don't want to be accountable for that money that someone else got using my information for. I lost my pocket book about 3 months ago with all my stuff in it during my mother's time of illness, so I had to get all new cards and stuff. Now I don't know what money they are talking about but I did not get anything from them. I just want to know what account they put the money in, so that we can try to work this out because again it was not me.
I applied for a loan, told them that I get paid around the 12th of each month specifically the second Wednesday of each month. After everything was finalized they said my loan would become due on the 9th. I pleaded with them to wait until after the 2nd Wednesday that they will get paid. That I didn't want to be in default with my bank. They play with me. I went into default. I have went with other payday loan companies and they complied. Please do not apply with this company.
Wow don't know if it's the same company but I received over 25 calls back to back at my place of employment by some Indian accented man named Danny ** and Dexter **. They used over 10 different numbers calling in, harassing all of the employees who answer the phone. They wouldn't provide any paperwork to this supposed debt only kept asking me to send them money. My Human Resources person called them advising to stop calling and they refused. They switched it and had a woman with same accent call in from more different numbers asking for me but using a different twist on my name. Very rude threatening people.
I had originally applied for a loan with these people and was finally approved, however, I was informed, after the fact that I would be required to pay a $150 documentation fee. After I sent the fee via a prepaid Visa card, I was informed that they could not fund until I had paid another $150 as a funding fee. Again I did as requested thinking I would be funded the same day. I called to see if the funds were to be in my account and I was informed that the transfer could not be transferred to my account and that I would have to go Western Union. When I got to the Western Union office, I was informed that I would have to pay another $289 to get my funds. Enough is enough. I've been scammed and I hope no one else goes through this unnecessary expense.
I have NEVER used this company, don't know who they are. They reported to 2 different credit agencies that I owe them over 1,000 and I have NEVER contacted them. I disputed it on my credit report and through the BBB. Definitely a scam.
This payday loan business like all of them are regulated by state laws to not give a loan to a customer any loans that exceed 300.00 in total. Each company that I loaned from was fully disclosed by me that I had several payday loans before I got a loan from them. I'm in California and it's the loan companies responsibilities to look at the other loans in each customers name. Legally they are at fault as a business by not informing us or turning us down. I spent 3 years in the vicious cycle paying interest rate that itself should be a crime. They even loaned my friend who's a veteran into the trap. Instead of reporting it to the courts or bureaus they report it to a different companies that are considered Teletrax. Ruining your credit by posting it to everyone of the loan companies before you can gain a loan to pay them all off at once. I live on under 900 a month and they told me they'd give me at least a month and they didn't. I'm ruined. They gave me over a thousand in the payday loans. Plus online loan companies too. They should be held accountable and never give a loan unless they check you credit and only to consolidate your loans. The debt relief and consolation both don't cover all your debt or loans. They either do just what you have on you report or just your instore loans. None give the option to include a title loan. I'm disabled paying 840 rent and 272 loan payments. I need to get a loan to cover all debt and not a 50 to 200 percent interest. If they loan us, making us victims because they don't care if we're being taken for hundreds of dollars. We are dependent on the State laws and companies informing us and not just keep lending up until we're homeless, no car, food, clothes or credit.
I was approved for a $5000 loan and sent $150 to Florida branch as my first payment. Funds are still not in my account. That 150 was all the money I had to my name! I'm so upset with myself for believing that I just might be able to clear some of my debt and still feed my kids!
I applied for a loan with advance america. They told me I was approved and for 107$ proof on an vanilla reload card they would wire money in my bank account, which I never received in my bank account. I called and complained then after 3 days of calling, they tell me since my bank account is now in negative, which it wouldn't be if I didn't have to put money on a reload card. They tell me it's been frozen and I need to come up with another 193$ to get loan and get back my original 107$ back. So right now I'm out of my money. I believe they are a scam. Ps they don't want me calling them anymore. I also believe they are going to collect money I never received on top of that. Don't know what to do about this.
I also received this email from this Advance America guy named Bob... But he first verified my bank and SSS information and then said he would transfer me to his loan officer. Which all he did was switch his voice up... And proceeded to talk to me about the 5,000 loan I was approved for... As soon as he told me that I knew it was a scam... He said I need to be able to provide him with 300 dollars before I can get this loan... He said, "go to your nearest Walmart for a MoneyGram to send it." He will tell me next step after that. I then started to question him. He started to get aggressive and I asked him, "what bank is affiliated with"... Bank of America... LMAO I then said, "great, I work for them." And I told him we were not affiliated with that company. He then said can I just wire him this money and I told him no I want him to delete my ** from his computer and don't call me again. I have LifeLock and they are monitoring for any suspicious activity and I called my bank right away and told them my information has be compromised at this point. And so my boyfriend gets on the line and starts to question him, and asked for all the names of his supervisor - gave us very generic names. Beware guys. I didn't send this guy and money nor did I agree to any loans he was trying to pressure me into... And if they take my information I have LifeLock so I will surely know if my information is being used elsewhere.
This is a scam! My girlfriend and I were just looking for a little extra money for Christmas. When I received an email saying I was approved for a 7000$ loan that I could pay back long term, we thought great so we tried it. First of all, I couldn't hardly understand this first guy named Mike which we overlooked. He proceeds to ask me for online banking info which also was overlooked because we've done a payday loan before and they asked for such info also. When people try to access our account from a device other than the devices we log in from, it requires a one-time pin if it's done through a mobile device. So when Mike asked for the pin I wondered why he was using a cell phone to do the transaction. Mike said in order for me to receive the 7000$ he was going to deposit 900$. When the 900$ was deposited 200$ was available for use but (Mike which by the way is NOT his real name) Mike said to go to Walmart, use debit card, get a green dot card, send 200$ back and then the rest of the money would be deposited. Well red flag went up. So instantly even though the money was in there we called the bank. Didn't touch it! When we went to the bank they proceed to tell us that not only was the place a fraud but that it was so much a fraud that the money they did send us was from some other poor lady like us, named Nicole from Indiana. They had stolen her info, wrote a bad check in her name and deposited through our mobile deposit. Her check which our bank got her info and is contacting her and hopefully stopping all her problems with this horrible set of **. In the end, I'm sure people have heard of this type of scam and it's common problem. We didn't lose any money we provided. Our bank which is going after this place, we provided them with 6 different phone numbers they called from. Just don't believe anything these people say. They're extremely rude. Wish I could meet the guy that told me not to play games with him because I'd let him see a side of me that people probably shouldn't see. Don't use them. Stay away please. Trust me they're fake as all. Get out. I gave this app 5 stars. They helped me not the company there.
The other day I received loan documents from someone pretending to be a loan officer for Advance America. This man tried to get me to upload money on a pay power prepaid card of 250 on a 4,000 dollar loan. I knew right away this was a scam because loan companies don't ask for money upfront. I called a employee at Advance America and did a three-way call on this man. She busted him in like 3 minutes and told him about himself. He hung up in her face because he was busted. Thank god for following my first mind... People are so crooked.
This company has taken all of our money from us under false per and won't give it back.
This Advance America is a fraud people. This guy had this woman call from South Carolina she sounded foreign. I was talking to her for about 15 min she began to quote back to me my bank info, home address, my name and so on .The number they called me from was **. She then asked me to hold on and she put me on the phone with a man with a middle eastern accent. I began to be suspicious, not because of the accent but the method I had to do to get the loan for 5000.00 dollars. He asked that I put up 230.00 to begin the transaction of 5000.00 to be deposited. Anytime someone is asking you to put money up to get money there's fraud going. His last name was. Told me how much my monthly payments were going to be, 238.88 a month. Needless to say I didn't follow through because of the suspicions. That Saturday morning I went to my KeyBank branch account had that account restricted and closed!! I opened up a new account, new number, new routing number they took all the money out of the old account put it in new account. I guess these fraudulent people figured out I've figured them out, because that Monday morning they began calling me again. I disclosed them. If this occur to you just change your whole account info people. There's a chance they can still access your money because they have your bank info. Beware!!!
I received a phone call from a New York phone number saying that I had been approved for a $2000 loan. I was in a bind, so I went for it. I was told that my payments would be $137 a month for a year. I have very poor credit, so I thought it was a great deal. I talked to someone named "Joshua" who had a thick accent. He said they would deposit my money that same day, but I needed to send them two pictures of signed checks, and a picture of my ID. Should've known something was up then. Uncomfortable with it, but did it. I received a call saying the pictures weren't clear and I had to send them again. Still uncomfortable, but did it. They called me again and said I needed to send one more check photo, because one was blurry. Again, I did it. They called me and said all was good, and they were going to send the money in a half hour. They were from a different state, so my bank has a different routing number for that. They called me and said the money wasn't transferred for that reason. "Joshua" told me they had to send it by Moneygram, and they needed 5 more check pictures. Again, I did it. The next day, a Saturday, I checked my bank account online, and discovered 3 checks had been written on my account totaling over $3000. I now have to file a fraud claim with my bank on Monday. DON'T FALL FOR THIS!
I received a text and email said I was approved for 5000 dollars from Advance America. The guy name was Derrick ** email = ** and his direct phone line is **. I called and he said I was approved for 5000 dollars, but he needs to verify my account that I am not broke. He told me to go to Walgreens and buy 500 dollars worth of iTunes cards and send him the picture of front and the back, also told me to scratch off the code from the back. He thinks I was stupid. So I hang up. Common sense. If I have 500 dollars in my hand then I wouldn't be applying for the loan. Be aware of the scammers. Use your head guys.
First of all they used "common" names like ** / **, yet they were Southeast Asians. They hung up on me when I asked them questions about the company and "cursed" at me. Also they told me I don't need to ask questions, just send money.
I had received an email for an approved loan with America Cash Advance. I called and arranged a loan deposit at which point I was asked for an $80 paperwork fee. I told them I didn't have $80 handy. At this point I was told my confirmation code was ** you **, stick my ** in your **. I threatened to call the FTC on them and received many back to back calls threatening me.
I received this email today... from Edwin **. Loan Account Number:-#**. "We are talking about loan amount of $400.00 that you took from the company ADVANCE CASH AMERICA which has now gone up to $975.00. The total payoff balance is $975.00, however due to bad debt we do have a Settlement offer available for you, if you can come up with the initial amount of $400.00 by October 6th 2017, this account will be marked as paid in full and you can avoid the legal consequences. If you want to resolve the issue, kindly accept the Settlement offer, so that we can suggest you the mode of payment accordingly." I used to work for Advance, didn't take out a loan... Thanks.
I received an email saying that I have received a payday loan who knows when and I owe almost a grand. I for one have never received a payday loan and plus they are illegal in my state and have been for years. They also said it was an online one, um seriously, do people think I'm going to fall for this. It doesn't even say my name, just says "Dear debtor."
These mf think they're smart. I've got something for that **. They try to pull that same okey dokey on me. Go to Walmart. Western Union me the cash. What. That sounds about as dumb as his Hobbes accent. They're in for more than they could ever start to even want. They have been trying to get me for I'd have to say at least six years. But they haven't pulled one off on me yet besides they got all my info like my SSN and my address and phone number. Hell I've had bad credit for as long as I can remember. So ** those false India mf. They can eat a **.
I received a strange call yesterday from this number. On the other line was a man that claims to work for Cash Advance America. He spoke very quickly and I swore I heard him say, "** (something)". I said, "**?" He responded by repeating his name and his alleged company name with a serious attitude. I figured I could have misheard him. He then stated that I had recently applied for a loan (which I had) and proceeded to tell me that I was approved for $10,000. I explained that I didn't need another loan as I had already been approved for the last but he responded by telling me that I could also get a smaller loan in the amount of $5,000. At this point, it was clear he wasn't listening to me, so I decided to humor him in the hopes of collecting enough info to share with you all here. Sometime during the call, he asked for my name "for verification purposes" he said. I didn't divulge my real name, and instead told him that he should know who I am since he called me saying I am approved for a loan. It was then that I learned that he was in fact calling for a **. After he learned that I wasn't who he thought I was, I assumed that would be the end of it, right? Nope! Using my fictitious name, he continued with his script, asserting that I was still pre-approved for the loan. Major red flags go up here. Certain it was a scam at that point, I decided I would get to the bottom of their alleged "offer". I couldn't help but laugh though when I learned what they were suggesting. I could "receive" $5,000 "interest free" with a payment of $212 every month for 24 months. If you do the math, that comes to $5,088. Sounds too good to be true, right? God forbid you tell them you are skeptical. The man proceeded to get loud with me, especially so when I said I needed to look them up online first. "Fine, look it up. Go ahead, look it up ma'am." I looked it up and to no surprise, I didn't find their company listed anywhere. I refrained from telling him to avoid escalating the conversation further. He then tells me that I have to pay $212 upfront to secure a voucher for insurance on the loan amount and would need to pay that right then and there with him on the phone to proceed with the loan. When I questioned the logic of paying up front to borrow needed money, the call got very heated. I wasn't about to let this guy waste any more of my time so I ended the call. I should add too that my number is listed on the National Do Not Call registry. This is the first solicited call I've received in a while.
These people contacted me for a loan. Get a green dot card for 60.00 and sent it. Then they say my funds are on hold until I pay 125.00 in taxes on another green dot. THIS IS A SCAM. Frank, Alex and John and are all foreigners. THAT should have told me what was going on right there. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE ARE ALL FRAUD! There is no money!
I got a call from Cash advance telling me that I was approved for a loan of any amount that I wanted up to $7000. They said first I needed to go to a CVS or 7-11 and purchase a green cash card with my first initial payment of $125 and send it to them. This would prove that I'm not broke and can afford to make my monthly payments. Right away it sounded like a scam. I then went online and saw complaints from people saying how they were scammed from this Co. That's when I made a definite decision to not deal with them. However, they keep calling and harassing me despite me telling them "no, thank you" and to not call me anymore. I'm getting dozens of calls a day and each day from different numbers. They are even calling my secondary number.
In October 2015 I was online looking for a personal loan to consolidate some smaller bills. Advance America showed and I felt they were reputable as they are all over the place. I filled out the application and they called me to talk about the loan I had asked for. The person I talked to was Eric ** and he said I was approved for $5000 dollars and wanted to know if I had an active checking account and I said yes I do. He said in order to know that, they would be depositing $1925 into my account that night which they did in increments of $491, $493, $453 and $485 and what I would need to do is go to a Walmart and send a moneygram, the first one going to Texas, the second one going to California. Well of course the lady at Walmart was suspicious but I assured her this was a legitimate transaction. Yeah right, little do I know what was going to happen. Well Eric called me back to let me know it did not go through.So I tried again. He called back again and let me know the person had not received it yet. I go back and get the money back and then the Finance officer name Albert ** calls and said that I would need to go to another place that sends MoneyGram express which would be me using a card to put the money on. Well I decided since it was Advance America I would go to the location near me and I sent the Money Gram to two new people a Bonny ** and to someone last name ** to Harrisburg PA and of course these two got the money and all was well. Monday night October 26th not knowing these were fraudulent checks all got returned because they were fake checks and I am now in the hole of $1925 and overdrawn... I called to speak to Albert and told him I had talked to the bank and the checks were fraud and I asked him if this was a scam and he assured me it was not or he would not be talking to me.Then he tells me because of low credit I would have to send $500 dollars for insurance because it was 10% of $5000. I told him I was not sending another dime and they got their money back and I am in the hole with a frozen account that is being investigated and he could pay the $500. He said they would put my account on hold for a couple days while I get the funds together for the insurance.So I contacted the Federal Trade Commission and MoneyGram and my bank and now my account is closed and Albert called me today to tell me they had tried to deposit the $5000 into my account and it wouldn't go thru and I told him it wouldn't go because the account is closed and I regretted ever finding them and they had been reported and they can give the money to someone else. It has been a loooooong week and a nerve wracking one at that. Thank my God above for wonderful friends. DO NOT use Advance America #(323) 786-8549. They are full of scamming blood suckers which one day I hope they get done the same way. People are so heartless these days.
Was taken for $308.25 from these people. After reading the reviews, I am not taking their calls. First was money can not be deposited into my account. This was after I paid $178.25 for some type of insurance. Then was asked to send $130 for half the loan and of course the next day said I need to pay the other half. Thank goodness I did some research and am not sending the other $130. All this was on the cards you buy at CVS. They are still calling but I refuse to answer. What a way to make a buck. I am a single father with a 10 year old, which I am the only parent. Wish something could be done about these people. All my calls are coming from Grapevine Texas. All have foreign accents.
I just got a phone call twice today tell me I could get any amount of money I need for loan and then they tell to go get a cash advance card and show my first payment of $185.00 dollars.
I was contacted by people claiming to be Advanced America. I never heard of them before but they said I was approved for a 5000 dollar loan which I thought was great since my credit is so low. The guy Jerry spoke with an accent which you could hardly understand. He told me that he was going to deposit 1000 in my bank account and I had to send it back and he would deposit my 5000 because my credit was low. Well they for reason couldn't get into my account at my bank and I was at work so I couldn't talk. They called me 26 times at work until I picked up and they would tell me to hold on while they get the manager. A few days ago I Googled the company name and got a different number. I called it and they said I wasn't in the system and if the person I spoke with had an accent, I said yes, they told me it's a scam because they don't give payday loans in New York State.The people called me back asking if I had another bank account set up I could use and I told them "No I am done with you." They asked why and I said, "You are a scam", them and said, "We are not a scam." I told them I reported them to the FBI and they said, "Good we are not scared" and I hung up. These people are disgusting individuals who need to do their own thing in their own country and leave America alone. People who have nothing see help when things like this happen and these people who aren't even in this country scam them!!! Do not believe anyone who calls you unless you are positive it's the real deal.
I got a text message on my phone from this company that I was approved for a loan up to $8500. I called the number and a man named Alan with a heavy Indian accent greeted me. I inquired about a set amount I needed and he said he could help. He then read off all the information he had on me. Said I needed to pay some insurance feed up front before loan could be approved. I asked how he had all my information (bank account number, SSN, address, DOB, etc.) and he said it was on my application. Funny since I never filled out an application with this company. Beware!! This is a scam!! But now I worry because the scary thing is that they somehow had all my information. What can be done about this?
I initially took a payday loan in December, 2016 in Bealeton VA. My first payment of 65.00 was made in cash. Around 1-28-2017 Elaina sent a card via mail stating that she was going to deposit the check for the remaining balance. I wasn't concerned because I knew it would clear. I did not receive any notices or phone calls of any missed payments during the months of Feb-April 2017. The first week of April 2017 I received a receipt for the check payment along with an refund for a 65.00 for over payment for the cash payment. I had spoken to Elaina the same day I received refund and receipt. Elaina gave me a phone number to call for a date I would be able to take out another loan if I wanted.April 14, 2017 a letter from AA stating that check didn't clear. I called Elaina as soon I got that letter and asked her "What's going on?" Then I started explaining the letter. Elaina then said that ADVANCE AMERICA, Treasury Department lost my check along with 6 or 7 other customers. I said "Ummm? OK? So what does that have to do with me?" Elaina apologized and told me NOT to do ANYTHING until she and the TREASURY dept has a chance to figure it out. Elaina told me to ignore the letters as they are auto generated in corporate office.The following week I receive another letter from AA about payment arrangements. I called AA and asked for a manager & corporate number to get some answers. Elaina says she's the manager of this store, so I telling her I got a 2nd message from her AA store, she again told me to ignore the letters, and she kept apologizing. I asked Elaina "Why would corporate send a letter to me as if this was my mistake, when this is clearly an internal issue?" Elaina then told me that the checks were lost when Advance America switched banks. My response to that was "How is that my fault?" She apologizes, says do nothing now, Elaina said she was willing work a affordable payment plan/rewrite out the loan if need be or bring her a copy of the cleared check. Elaina said "I will definitely keep you posted," with anything she found out. When I got off the phone with Elaina, I then called another AA to ask how long does it take for AA checks to clear. I was told up to 60 days. I did explain this situation hypothetically to this AA manager. She said it was strange, I then told her this is what I'm experiencing in Bealeton's store. She couldn't pull up my account info in that store, but she gave me the store #480- to Bealeton and a 800 number and option to use. I called the number, left message, no return call.The second week in May I received a VM from AA about payment arrangements because my check didn't clear. I was fed up at this point. I called Elaina back She answered the phone with greeting. I said this is (name). Elaina hesitated for about 5 seconds. I then said "I'm listening." She then states how my check didn't clear, I borrowed money from them and I need to pay them back. My politeness went out the window. I told Elaina she made no sense. How is it my fault that your company lost mine and others' checks and then you expect us the consumer to pay for your Business mistake. I then told Elaina "You admit that it was a company issue but yet you are calling me as if I just blatantly disregarded making payments." I told Elaina that I was doing my own research because she sounded as if she was being deceptive. I then told Elaina "Whatever you or your company did with the check is not my concern. I do not work for AA. I put the check in your hands. You give me different reason for what happened to the check every time I speak to you. I have a receipt and I will take your ** to court for any violation of my consumer rights." I told Elaina she could have someone else call me. I told her I didn't believe anything she was saying, I was driving and I had to go and I hung up. As of today I have not received any payment notices or phone call from Bealeton AA. May 31, 2017 I receive a phone call from 888 -705-5685, I missed call. No VM was left. I called back and IT'S AA corporate asking had I had papers served on me. I said "for what!" The rep was telling me about a delinquent debt and I went ballistic. I explained everything to her. The representative said that she was going to void this out and send it back to Elaina. I then told the rep I've had it with Elaina and this issue this was not my fault and she's holding me accountable for her mistake. The rep also did not know that I had already received a receipt of paid in full and that a company error had occurred, but information was given to corporate as if I just chose to ignore a loan.Once I get off the phone I call the other AA and ask to speak to a manager. Her name was Lisa. I explained everything to her again. She took some information from me and said she would have the DM for the Bealeton office call me back. Lisa called me back 13 minutes later and told me that she spoke with the Bealeton Office. Lisa states that Brinks Bank had checks in lingo while AA switched banks. Once the system went up red flags started going off in their new system. I ask her "how is that my fault?" I then ask her "how is it fair to me". She said "I know it's not your fault and it doesn't seem fair, but it has to be fixed." She also stated that Elaina deposited my check on May 1 2017. I had no prior knowledge of that at all until Lisa told me today. Lisa told me that technically they didn't have to. I disagree.I'm in hopes of filing damages against AA for violation of consumer rights and breach of contract. Two verified managers stated this was an internal issue through no fault of my own. Elaina sent receipt first week of April stating acct was paid in full and closed meaning she does not have permission to access my account without my consent. Third being that the contract is legally null and void based on the pay dates on the original loan, the issue AA claims they were dealing and my receipt. The loan contract would have to be written over. Is it legal for AA to come after consumer for business mistakes? Is it legal for AA to use consumer's bank account for a "closed" account without consumer's prior knowledge. There was no notification to the consumers about the issue that Bealeton office was experiencing about the bank glitch. I pray someone reads this and contact me.
Thank goodness for this site, because I almost fell for this scam as well. The other reviews truly saved me, so I am only here to chime in regarding my own experiences. Warning signs: These people are not American. They have thick Indian accents, and you can tell that they're not working in offices, as you can often hear children in the background. My assumption is that many of them are working from home, and not with any legitimate organization.They are incredibly unprofessional. When I politely asked one of the men to stop calling me and to remove me from their list, I was assaulted with "But honey, why?" repetitively and personal questions that were none of his concern. After multiple attempts of speaking over his whining voice, I finally lost my cool, told him off, and hung up. He called back immediately on a different number, and I rejected it. I have not heard from them since, but I made it clear that if they contacted me again, there would be legal repercussions.These are numbers they called from: Ohio number (216) 759 0063, Florida number (407) 777 3601. I suspect there are many, many more. Thank goodness I did not give them any money or information. DO NOT - I repeat - DO NOT fall for these scam artists.
I got a call then a email saying I qualified for a $2000 loan. The guy foreigner gave me the terms of the loan then stated to get a voucher to process the loan. The money would process in my account in minutes. Came back to the line to say the transfer did not go through. Then I needed to pay doc fees then again it didn't go through. I then ask for a refund or instructions on how to get my money back. He asked me to hold then said he would send it Western Union. They are a valid company and are committed the consumers they serve. Came back to tell me I need to give them $486 to get the $2000 from Western Union. I can swipe my card and the money would go to my account.
Advance America loans is complete and total fraudulent. They ask you to load a greendot moneypak card with what will be your monthly payment to show you can payback the loan. Then they steal your money, make up some bs as to why the money can't go into your account and they to get you load another green dot moneypak card with another $289 for a $4000 loan. There are no Americans that answer the phones, all Indian people who you can barely understand. Mark ** was who called me and sent me the loan agreement email with everything already laid out. Listen to me people, they are frauds and thieves. Don't fall for their mess, you will not receive a loan and they will steal all your money.
I have been reading these stories and I just want to let you guys know that these people do not work for Advance America, they are scamming you guys. This really hurts my heart to know that it's heartless people out there that only care about money. I have been a customer for Advance America for years and they never ask money up front, I repeat, they never ask for money up front. First you will go into the Advance America, bring a couple of your latest check stubs and a cancel check to show proof of your account, then they give you the money within 5 minutes - just that easy. The only time you give them money is when it's time to pay back the loan. They will never ask you to purchase a green dot card, vanilla card, never. It looks like to me some people from India got together and thought of a plan how to rip off working Americans using a company name they know nothing about. I hope this helps. Good luck people, God bless.
In order to borrow money from these companies you have to buy an iTunes card for 200-400 to give to them. Once you buy the card you can not get the money back and you will not get the loan. Now they are telling me to give them 575 for an insured program to get loan. DO NOT DO IT.
I used this company a LONG time ago for a couple of payday advances. Which I paid off in a timely fashion. I still have the screenshots of everything. I am constantly getting calls/voicemails to my cell phone (that I never gave them). Literally 4-7 voicemails A DAY! I have blocked the number on my phone so now I just get instant voicemails that are all blank. When I google the number that called me, it says it belongs to Advance America.
These stores are not working with consumers in a fair enough way to ensure that their loans are paid off and not just a continuos cycle. They are being ver difficult in working out a more reasonable way to help the consumer live normally and pay off their loans. When you ask the store clerks about other options they offer none, their only other option is to just just pay it off and worry later about the other living expenses you have later. At every single one of these stores there is an issue with their payday loans process. My husband and i have been paying these payday loand for about three years now and it just seems to be an endless cycle. It has gotten to the point to where you have to make rash decisions about how you can cover your other bills after paying these loans with high interest. After trying to set up payment plans and or arrangements with these companies even then when you have more than one loan it's still difficult to live a somewhat normal life. You have to write one loan to cover the other and when you think you are able to pay it out, because it's such a large amount you cannot pay them out because you need that extra money to cover something else. This is a very big strain on my family because we have paid them enough money for those loans to have been paid out, we should get a refund for all the money we have poured into these type of loans. There isn't even a program that can help those that want to pay the money back, therefore you are stuck in this neverending cycle. We are very destraught and depressed behind these loans, can someone please help?
I received a payday loan from Advance America. I paid the loan down to the point where I owed $275.00. On November 19, 2010, the company took $400.00 (which was the original amount of the loan) from my checking account without any notification. I immediately contacted Advance America to inquire as to why they took more than what I owed them. They first attempted to say that I owed the $400.00. Then later in the conversation, the rep stated that they took $400.00 because that was the amount of my original check. So I asked when I could come in and receive my refund for $125.00. They told me that the check had to clear. On Tuesday, November 23, 2010, I contacted the store again to let them know that the check cleared and I would like to come in and get my refund. Advance America said that I would need to bring in my bank statement to show that the payment cleared. Due to my work hours, I cannot get to the store during the weekday. However, due to the Thanksgiving holiday, I knew I would be off work Thursday and Friday. So I went in this morning (November 26, 2010) to pickup my refund. When the rep went into the computer, she stated that I had to wait until Monday, November 29th, although she clearly saw a clear payment on my bank statement. Then, she told me that she would need to give me a check. I said that you took my cash and I would prefer cash. Anyway, now I have to wait until the 29th, at which point I would not be available to pick it up until next Saturday, December 4, 2010. I feel that I should have been refunded my money immediately once verification of the check was made. Please advise. Thanks.
Received several emails and one particular phone call offering to loan 5,000.00 for the next three years. Monthly payments at $183.00. The catch is I have to make a deposit of $220.00. I told him I didn't have it right now, so he said he'd save the information, he called Monday. He called again today to verify that I would be making that deposit, by 2pm tomorrow. Ha! Right, I gave him a prepaid card number that has nothing to do with any account at all. I'll never deposit anything on that prepaid card, so Robert ** at ** enjoy spending money that you're never gonna get just like I will never trust that you will deposit 5,000.00 into any account.
I was behind bills so I went online and trying to get a loan. The next day this number call me and told me that they are from Cash Advance America (786-600-1146). His name is Derek ** and he got a really heavy accent (Indian, Hindu or Middle East). He told me I got approved from 1000 to 10000 and ask me how much do I want. I told him I need 4000 to pay off my debts then he said NO PROBLEM. Next thing he ask me to get a GREENDOT MONEYPAK for $350 to show them my ability for my first payment. I went and bought it at Walmart, scratch out the back and gave him the pin. After that he told me that they need 699 to pay for their STATE TAXES. I don't have any money left but I called my boss and he lend me 400, my co-worker lend me 300 and I bought ANOTHER MONEYPAK for 699, scratch the back and gave him the pin also. After that he told me that my application for the loan is FROZE I have to buy another MONEYPAK with the same amount 699 to unfroze the account and they said I will get everything back at Western Union. I got mad and wanted to talk to the head manager. They transfer my call to a guy name Wilson (head manager). I told him my situation and this is what he told me in a really heavy Indian accent (if you can not come up with 699 to release your account then forget it. Don't bother to talk to me ok), then he hang up. Is there anything that I can do to get my money back people? Please help me. My number is **.
I received an email from someone named John **. Long story short they scammed me out of 450.00 and I went to an Advance America store and the lady called the number 803-233-5870 and this was a scam. The man began screaming at the lady and hung up. He then called me and cussed me out. I reported this to the federal trade commission, better business bureau and placed fraud alerts with the credit bureaus also alerted my bank.
I was contacted via text message that I was approved for a loan for $4000.00 from Advance America. The name was Jake ** & the number left for me to call was a 214 area code. I was in dire need to get medical bills paid as well as other things. I called the number & Jake ** - very heavy Indian accent answered the phone. He told me I was approved, & my monthly payments would be 250.00. All I had to do was go get a Visa Green Dot Card & put 400.00 on it to show I had the funds to pay back this loan. He promised that I would immediately get my money back. He also asked for my zip code & even the nearest place to get a card was Fred's.I bought the card, put 400.00 on it, & was told not to activate it. I called him back & he said I would have to send a MoneyGram of 450.00 to release the funds, as they were being held in an account. I borrow the 450.00 & wire the money to a weird name Kapil **, in Lilburn, Ga. I found it odd that I was sending money to this person, but did so anyway. A friend of mine said it was a scam, & I immediately got my money back. This was after calling Jake ** with the ref. number & info. I was contacted later & asked why I had canceled the MoneyGram, & I told him I knew it was a scam. He assured me the money was coming back to me along with the 4000.00.I then go to Western Union, only because there was not a Walmart close by, which is where I first sent the money. It cost me 30.00 to wire the money, but then again I'm thinking I will be getting all this money back. At this point I was talking to a person named Mark, & he told me the name & to send the money to Florida. It was getting late & this was on a Friday evening. Mark called me to get the ref. number & said my funds would be deposited into my account first thing Monday morning.Well, I call my bank Monday morning & no money has been deposited. I call Jake ** back & he explains to me that my zip code had been black balled & the money was frozen. He also said I needed to send 465.00 for taxes to release the money into my account. By this time I'm furious, & told him if I had all this money to give them I would not need a loan. I said I wanted my 850.00 returned to me immediately. Jake said this could not be returned without me paying the taxes. I received several calls on Monday from them trying to finish the loan & to get me to send them the 465.00. I told them I was sending no more money. I received a call around 8:00 pm from an unknown number wanting to help me with my loan to get me the money. He said I didn't have to send any more money & he would take care of it.After all the run around. I still have gotten no money, & please be aware of these scammers out there. The guy asked me personal questions & I told him I was not answering these questions & that I just wanted my money returned. I'm out 850.00 & was told I had 24 hrs. to come up with the money. If I could not come up with it, then I would lose all my money. I was so angry & upset at this point, although I tried to hold my composure & not let them know this. It is early Tuesday morning & still no money has been put into my account. I am not sure at this point who to contact, but I will report this to every person I can think of. I originally sent money I was going to use to pay my car payment with, thinking I would get the money back. No, they just keep trying to get as much money out of you as they possibly can...
This company or whatever they are has called me 7 times in three minutes. I have asked they remove my number from their call list only to be told by the guy with a very thick accent that he will keep calling me. I have never applied for a loan with this company, nor would I ever. I wish they would just stop calling me.
I just got to talk to one of these so called Advance America Cash Advance people and he said that his name was Mike **, and he offer me a 1000 dollar loan and told me to go get a green dot moneypak card so that I can receive my 1000 dollar right away. He told me to go to Walgreens to get the card and gave me the address. And when I was questioning him about the one Walgreens that he wanted me to go to, he was getting mad. So I told him that I don't want anyone from his company to call me again and he started to cuss me out and I hung up on him. They are a fraud! Do not do business with them because if they were able to give you a loan, they would be able to put it in your account with no problem.
Was contacted that I was approved for a loan. Was told that I needed a GreenDot Money pack for $200 to verify I could pay the money back in monthly payments. I told them I only had $170 and they said that would work. I got the card, and called them back. They had me read the number assuring me they would not touch the money but just verifying I had the money. Then he said everything was ok and he would call me back to let me know the funds were being transferred to my account. He called me back and said the $170 was not on the GreenDot card and that sometimes the sales clerk makes an error or the card malfunctions. Then he said I needed to go and get another card. I told him crying that I put the money on the card, and he was the only one who I gave the number to. He said he didn't take the money and the card was malfunctioning again asking me to go get another card. So I am now out the money and did not get the loan I really needed.I should have knew better, but I was really hoping that just once someone was going to tell me the truth and do as they said they would. I told him I hope he can sleep at night knowing his actions take money from hardworking people who are in trouble in these tough times. That I hope he can live with himself. He had the nerve to ask me again to get another card so he could approve the loan. Unbelievable.
Received a call from a representative (unfortunately forgot his name) who claimed that I was being sued because I did not pay my loan, a loan which I never took. Since I told him I knew nothing about a lawsuit, he transferred me to a gentleman name Officer Glen who said I was being sued for Check Fraud, false identity, using my license and social security and that I will be served with papers at home as well as my office. First of all, I have not taken a loan with Advance America and these gentlemen use American names but sound extremely foreign (Indian accent). These crooks need to be stopped from harassing people. Unfortunately, I cannot afford an attorney but this is extremely frustrating.
Locked out at 1:37 pm, no sign when or why they were closed. After ringing the bell, an employee stated she was on lunch and unable to do business for 10-15 minutes later. Consequently, I was unable to make my 4 pm deposit at my bank and I was late picking up my daughter, where she got written up (4 pm).
I was desperate for money, and my husband filled out for payday loan online and was declined. The next day a text came saying we pre approved for 1500$ loan, so we be thought it was God answers our prayers. We called the number from South Carolina and talked to a Jeffrey **, he had a heavy Indian accent. He said we are going to have 1500$ put in our account but because our credit score was low we needed to show we can make the 1st payment. He said they would not touch it. They just need to see it in there. We didn't have any money so he said he would wait until Friday when my husband got paid. I didn't like the sound of that, so next day I called them and asked for their website because he said he was Advance America. So I looked up the website and it didn't say Advance America it said,, and at bottom I looked at their address.When I called the address, it was a mortgage company. They said they were the only company in the building, I told them someone was using their address. When I called Jeffrey back and confronted him he refused to tell me why I couldn't confirm where his company was, he argued with me awhile then finally said, "ma'am this is a scam", omg I couldn't believe people can be this evil. Please watch out, we are all in situations that people like to take advantage of.
Got an email saying I was approved for a $5000 personal loan. I had used the real "Advance America" before and had no issues. So I thought I could trust this offer... at first. So Charles ** calls me, (716) 616-9168, and proceeds to tell me I can have the $5000 due to my income with only $250 payments for 24 months. Meaning I would pay $1000 interest over the course of the loan. Not great but I was hurting really bad! So I agree to listen to the terms while researching phone numbers, company name etc., finishing all sorts of red flags. The contact number he gave me was 716-616-9168.Charles tells me I need to send him $250 first, due to my low credit score. I immediately tell him it's a scam and I'm not going to do it. He gets frustrated and I hang up. I pray he doesn't have too much of my info and nothing else negative comes from this. I'm so sorry others for scammed out of this, awful. :( I immediately get a ton of calls from all kinds of numbers including 0000000000. All trying to get me to complete the loan. SCAM!
I received an email the day after I had applied for a payday loan. The email stated that I had been approved for a longer term advance (36 months) for a $5000.00 loan. All of the correct info was on the email including the CEO' s name, general manager of the office, the CFFA logo listing them as a 2013 member. They said no verification only wire service charges. So I paid $150. After 30 min on hold a Derrick ** from Western Union came back on to tell me congrats the money was in my acct and they had to go home it was closing. I asked him to stay on the line while I verified this but he hung up. I checked my acct no money, no pending transfer or transaction. I called Western Union to check the NYC #s I was given all were invalid. I really needed that loan to keep my 4 kids in school and keep the lights on. The electric will be shut off tomorrow and my kids are not allowed back to school until I pay the tuition. All of this because I got mugged in my alley, hit on the head and was out of work for two weeks. I just needed a bridge to my next payday a week away. Instead we are all now sitting in the dark and hungry. Thanks for crushing a bunch of kids. I hope Alex and Derrick enjoy the $150 dinner they stole. Nothing lower than thieves especially ones who don't even admit it try to make you feel like they are really helping you when they have their hand on your wallet the whole time. Lower than whale poop.
I just got an phone call from Advance America Cash Advance talking about I got a loan for $300 deposited into my account. And I refused to pay my payment so now they are filing criminal charges. But when I told them that it wasn't me they had my ss# and my old address. When I told them I​ don't live there the man hung up.
I was contacted and approved for a $5,000 loan. However to 'prove' that I could pay, I was required to purchase a Vanilla reload card and put $200 on it. The India speaking gentlemen offered to 'stay on the line' to instruct me on which card to purchase. Next, promised my loan in 5 minutes, I was required, before I could get my loan, to purchase another vanilla reload card and put $266 on it in order to pay the 'fees associated with the loan', then I would get my loan in 5 minutes. Next I was told that their server had crashed and that they would have to western union the funds, and in order to do that I would have to obtain a 3rd vanilla re-load card and put $333 on it, and I would get my loan in 5 minutes. Next, came the first 5 digits of what turned out to be a bogus Western Union number, and to get the other 5 digits I would have to purchase a 4th vanilla re-load card and put $177 on it. Now by this time I was angry and one person, a Mr. ** said that if I paid the $177 and I didn't get the loan he would refund now $970. Needing the funds I purchased a 4th vanilla re-load card and put $177 on it. They gave me the other 5 digits and checking it online I discovered it to be bogus. Then they became aggressive and Mr. ** became sick and not at work, so they were not going to honor the refund instead asking for a 5th vanilla reload card claiming that they would have to send the funds to the Federal Trade Commission if I didn't purchase a fifth vanilla reload card and put $300 on it supposedly for a pay day loan I had taken out and not paid for. At this point, with a blank contract from Mr. ** in hand, an email address, likely an IP address thru being on the phone for hours with these scam artists, I did a little speaking of my own citing that I would turn all my information over to the SC State Attorney General, the California Attorney General, and the US Attorney general. I said that if I didn't receive my refund of $970 back within 2 hrs that I would not only turn over the data, and information to the authorities but not rest and take my final breath until all at this place were placed in federal prison for the upcoming holidays. Well, at present, the gentlemen would gave me his name as Mr. **, they use the phone number 323-786-8178. The email address that I managed to get from Mr. ** is: [email protected]. and I've attached the image from the blank contract with another person's contact information but none of my information. Supposedly Mr. ** asked for a card to refund the $970 against and having full security on it I've already alerted my credit union and gave Mr. ** the information. Supposedly he said that my $970 would be credited back against the card within 2 days. I will complete this complaint in 2 days time if or if I don't get a refund and contact the authorities to swear out a complaint for their predatory tactics and their arrest.
This company said I took out a loan, but I did not. Then they had this LLC law office company call me, talking about I owe all this money back. Now, I have to file an attorney info against them to get to the bottom of this.
