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 had advance America say I was approved for a 2000 to 5000 dollar loan and sent a document to sign and send back . First off how am I approved for a uncertain amount when they either go off your credit and deny you are they aren't sure how much to give you .lol . 2nd the document they sent has a Illinois state seal in the background but the bottom if each page has a spartanburg, sc address lol so it's a shame how many millions of Americans fall for this instead they rush and hurry and do this because our country forces the everyday average American household to live in poverty . Instead of us liveing like we can . People wake up quit believing in television is right and the government wouldn't do this too us because we are the land of the free .Well if serfs are free how come im fighting my *** off to eat and let the 10% of the rich get rich and middle America turn to haveing some India Man steal money cause there kid needs to eat .

I just got a phone call from them saying that I was approved for $5,000.00 with installments of 225.00 a month. Great, wonderful, fantastic. If the first thing he asked for was a 225.00 money gram. I was like, "Why do you require a money gram if I was approved?"
He said oh to prove that you have 225.00 in your account. Oh okay, yeah not interested.

Just got a call today and did not admit it was me on the phone. I asked what it was regarding and the foreign man became very inappropriate. I got the number and it's 312-757-4288.

Avoid new number (NY) 518-772-0404. The guy could barely speak! Asked for bank info and that he would put money into my account. His name was Eric. Asked for website and all he said was Cash Advance America. All of this is a FRAUD! Do not believe the hype it is to good to be true. You should not have to send money to get money even if its not yours.

Had a guy name Eric Johnson claiming to be a lawyer from California and works for a website called I sent an email to them and they never heard of him. This so called Eric Johnson is trying to get money for Cash Advance America. For one a lawyer never cussed at the other party, and two you *** right I will investigate them before anything else. The number that came up on my phone is (323) 739-5456

How are they going to revoke the scammer's license? A scammer doesn't need a license to scam people, and secondly, these people are operating overseas. They use spoofing devices, to make it appear as if they're calling from the states

There's nothing the police can do about these scammers ...they can make out a report, but that's it. These scammers are operating overseas, and they are impossible to locate. They use spoofing devices, to make it appear as if they're calling from here in the states. As for them threatening you will jail time, well that's an empty threat. You cannot be criminally prosecuted, for taking any kind of a loan...the worst that can happen to you, is the lender can take you to court, and sue you...that's me, i've been putting up with these scammers since 2009. As a matter of fact, i just got an email a couple of days ago, from someone saying i was going to be charged with theft by deception, for not paying back a payday loan that i never got....don't worry about it !

I had the same thing happen to me. I'm giving this number and email to my attorney to deal with it. I'm in bankruptcy court and this never came up for my bankruptcy. He knew my last 4 of my social too. His name Attorney: Michael Davis Number: - (301) 637 7449. I wasn't paying for nothing.

I just received the same thing saying I have to give them 250 today or I will be arrested and then have to pay over 6000 dollars I'm not even aware of the original loan and this is the first time I was ever contacted about it. I don't know what to do. Every attempt I make to call them I get dead phone numbers or numbers that just ring. Do I need to worry about being arrested?

A new number to consider avoiding, (530)402-7714, out of Woodland, CA, a foreign man called me with a loan offer. It was fishy to begin with b/c of the terrible page formatting in their word document; it appears to be some sort of cut and paste job. I asked the foreign guy on the phone for the name of his website, but all he could produce was the alleged company name, Cash Advance America, which I googled and then found this website. I decided to document the number that contacted me in this comment, in case it is useful in some way, somewhere down the line.
