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 just got an email today. I was scared saying I was going to be arrested. For defaulting on a loan. He was foreign as well.. he also told me to get a green dot card put funds on it to pay this bill to avoid legal issues. I told him I don't owe anyone any money. I called American cash advance. They told me its a scam. I waited for the man to call me back then told him it was a scam. He got upset said I would be arrested & hung up. 30min later I received a call from 911 telling me he was officer david Jones I would be arrested in the morning for nonpayment of this loan. Itold him do what he needed to do

Yesterday someone with a indian accent from this company called me stating that I applied for a loan of 5k. I told them no and they keep insisting that I did. I asked them to send me the firm of the application that I filled out and they said they did send it. I told them to send it again and I will call them back. They keep insisting that I applied and they have the application but will not send in to me. If I wasn't interested in the loan I should cancel it and pay them $100 for cancelation. I said I will do no such thing. I hanged up on them called me 5 min later and passed me to his "supervisor" I hear them laughing in the background. I asked for their name and reference number they refuse to give it to me. They told me they will have me arrested if I don't pay. I told them go ahead. Good at least I can have a name of who's trying to have me arrested. And he hanged up. # is 786 378 6999.

Cash advance america scam! Unfortunately I was desperate and borrowed $255., placed it on a green dot money pack card. They took that money then Mr "James Williams"(yea right) told me that I needed a $100. Money transfer fee. Told him that I don't have it and he became irate. Told him that I don't want the loan, just my $255. Back. Told me he'd call me Friday.

These same people are as we speak (or I should say) type, are calling me and have been for several days from a variety of different phone numbers. I spoke with several of the persons and went as far as to let them give me all the details until they got to the part where I have to prove I can repay the loan "Put the money on a voucher" or "put the money on a Green dot card" and give them the verification code on the back of the card. These people are of Indian nationality (from India) there is no mistaking their accent! although I have deleted the majority of numbers they use, I will list the numbers on my phone so far this morning. Please! Do not fall for such foolish practices. 401-648-9484, 772-585-9865, 773,599-4293, 872-588-4012, 872-588-4002, 214-269-8763, 333-333-3333, 312-788-9411, ....All with the same accent and same greeting.

Just got that same call. Luckily I didn't wait for the "spill". I immediately asked for the ssn and asked when the loan had been applied for. The foreigner hung up on me. I called back a few times, it went to vm. Funny, he called me back, lol. Needless to say, he did not have a ssn and stated I applied for the loan 3 yrs ago. I disputed and asked for the imformatiin on the applucation. Of course he hung up on me AGAIN! Here's the contact number #607-767-7640...New York!

Just received a call from "Johnny" at (551)200-5415..Claiming to be from Cash Advance America. He has called EIGHT TIMES from 1:00pm-3:00pm. He had initially said that I had already filled out a loan application from this company..I never have even heard of this company. I said I am not interested and hungup. He proceeded to call back 8 times.For which the last time he became vulgar and hostile. I called the company and they told me that they do not make cold calls to anyone. My thing is how did this dude get my cell number? This guy also had an indian accent.

Two weeks ago - Same exact story as the rest only from Brownsville Tx. They say they are calling from "Bruce Law". I'd need over $8000 for fees and bail, committing fraud, etc, or would be taken into custody through the NYS Attorney General's office. I reported to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Today I have a message from a Mr. Anderson in NY on my cell. (585) 633-3923. He wants to hear from me or my attorney. Very urgent. If I don 't call him back, he wishes me good luck. I did the rational thing. Deleted the number (saved the message) and blocked it. I will continue to do the same until they get they get lost.
