USA CASH ADVANCE AMERICA.....SCAM!!

review #397471

USA CASH ADVANCE SCAM: Foreign accented man called to confirm a loan but needed me to obtain a new government law requiring a verification voucher! When I had money and was at CVS, 11/7, Walmart or other locations.....I was to call him and then he would tell me the person to whom I would make the voucher out to for a total of 260 dollars (down from 400). The loan would then be deposited into my account as soon as the voucher business was done. He informed that I had to process the voucher verification within the next 10 minutes and then my funds would then be in my account in 15 minutes (in thousands by the way). The voucher was to prove I could make monthly payments...REALLY? The amount of the loan was ridiculous- "too good to be true" type. So I said I could not do anything until tomorrow. Again he emphasized calling once I was in the store and would give me no information except that his name was James. (BTW: a young man answered the phone, James was giving the 888 number to another in the background and then took the phone to speak with me??!!)

Googled USA CASH ADVANCE right away and did a reverse call on number. SCAM SCAM SCAM. I can add numbers to the existing LONG LIST of numbers used by them to procure USA CASH ADVANCE victims. The number I can add to the list: 347-492-2732(out of NY)and 888-601-5809.

I am sssooooooo glad I felt uneasy with the speed and abruptness of the "business" dealings with this man and looked up all this before becoming a victim to this scam!

This is a terrible scam.......calls every hour on the hour. Just so glad I didn't fall for the "verification voucher that is required by the US government now??"

Isn't there some type of law against claiming that money/vouchers are required by our government in order to process a loan?

Watch out all :upset

I had a person from this number call my work over 50 times looking for a coworker who no longer works here.
He went by Peter Parker, Mark McGwire, and Mark Messy.

i think we should all call them back on a certain day and completely overwhelm their phones maybe it will disable thier phone system due to all of the incoming calls we can make it november 3 at 12 pm and just hit them with thousands of calls at once and keep calling for 5 minutes. see how those fu@#ers like it.

I had gotten an email that said "WARRANT" so I opened it up and it read that I had 4 hours to respond or there would be a warrant out for my immediate arrest. Then further down in the email it stated that if this went to court that I could owe over 4700.00. So I responded asking what this was about , that I didn't know of anything like this. I even requested what was the total amount that was owed and I requested for paperwork to be mailed to my address that they had so that I may get it resolved. Now Sarah Johnson, told me that I had to send $100 that same day to be able to put a stop on the warrant.
Red flags for me was that she never gave me the total amount, Not even the name of the business that I owed or their address so I could mail the payment to them but, she requested me to No use or purchase a visa/ master card to go to CVS, Rite Aide or Walgreen and purchase a Tax-pay voucher AND THAT VOUCHER NAME WAS: Green Dot Pak. this was to be a paper recharge coupon but I couldn't use a visa or master card or a prepaid card for the risk of freezing of my account & vital information. the other red flag to me was her email address having gmail in it. Another major red falg for me was the copy of the warrant that was sent to me as a download. My name was misspelled and it just looked wrong. My gut says don't send so, I don't plan on sending her any money.

I have been getting calls all day saying I am approved for a loan of 3600 dollars and all I have to do is get a green dot money pak card and give them the numbers on the back so they can VERIFY that I can make the monthly payments. So long story short this place is a total SCAM please don't let these *** get away with this. it was an 806 area code out of south Carolina name was kevin and he had an Indian accent. Didnt sound like any kevin I have ever met. It makes me sick that people try to rob from people that have no money and need help getting a loan.

Dear Consumers,
I am disabled and was SCAMMED in a very BIG way by a secret shopper scam through Western Union and Walmart I am now having to repay my bank a total of over $3000.00. I barely survive on what I make without having that on my head. So I definitely can understand the frustration there is something that you can do about it though you don't just have to sit and complain. Even though you were lucky were lucky enough to catch the scam before it got you, you still have the option the to report it. Here is the website that you report to http://www.consumerfinance.gov/contact-us/ please help to spread the word and keep this from happening to others. We all have a voice let's us it to try and stop these people. God Bless.

I applied for a loan and recieved an e mail from them also..I was approved for $3600 and to pay $111 monthly for 24 months..It was perfect..But I did google them to check their reviews and I found this scam page.So of course I was very iffy about accepting the loan but I was kind of desperate so I called them anyway..A man with an accent did answer and seemed very weird..So I told him I got an email, right away he said because I have bad credit I would have to make a security deposit..So I said I have to send u money to get the loan,, he said yes..Then I told him I was aware of scams and how dont I know he is not scamming me..He hung up..I know it was to good to be true..

I got an email from Jeff Morgan (Signature says Daniel Gonzalez)and then a phone call from 818-613-6021 the man had a VERY heavy accent. the scary part is he had all of my bank account information and the last 4 of my social. he wanted me to go to CVS and do the $100 verification which i told him made no sense to me. after i hung up I goolged the number and SCAM SCAM SCAM!!! i called him back he didn't answer and called me right back. trying to convince me that i filled out a loan and this was not a scam. I told him if i see ANYTHING wrong with my account I would find his *** and kill him. and i mean that! people don't work for bums like him to steal their money from them. get your *** up and get a real *** job!

I had the same issue and thank god I was uneasy with this transaction and did not give this man any money. In fact when he called me back I told him I researched this and no one ask you to obtain a voucher to prove you can make the payment. He hung up. And has not called me back but, I get up this morning and there is the same kind of loan on my computer. This time for Bank of America.
