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

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 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.

Hello, the same was done to me not only did I confirm my information for JAMES, but gave him the permission to take the processing service fee as JAMES called it from my account. Because I was informed that I wasn't paying for anything. It would be given back in minutes to my account once the information was processed. Well not only did I not get the money back. I never got the SCAMS loan amount. Now, after that they also took two so called processing service fees, but I had to close my account out of 7 years. Plus they now know my social,address and birth. Pissed off because this happened 2 years ago. I did'nt speak out. Now a few different JAME'S called me again lately trying the same moves again. I recorded the conversation and told him. But they still call from New York. I am speaking out. Scammers, Scammers.
