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

Some boat as everyone on this page. Just happened today Aug 1 2014. I got an email saying, I got approved for a cash loan up to $1000. Ok.. So I went to the cvs to get a green dot money pack. Remind you know, I had to show prove that, I can pay the $120 a mouth right. So, I go to cvs and get the $120 then they tell me to stay by the phone they was going to call me back. So they call me back. Had me on the phone for almost 1hr. Then come back to the phone telling me, I need to get other money pack for $195.00. So, I did that. Gave them the number and then they called me back again. Had me on hold and come back to the phone asking me for $187.00. So I am asking them why do I have to give you more money. They told me it was for insurance . I told them no. Told them that they needed to give me back my money. Then he going to tell me no. Then he told me that he didn't care if I sell my organs that I need to send him the $187.00. No i didn't. I called the police told them what happened. I filled out an report. They call from so many dam numbers. They don't speak English for one thing and I am so pissed off right now.

They have been calling me all day today (08/1/14) trying to get me to load a vanilla card for a voucher verification. I kept asking for the loan verification forms and the terms requiring a signature. they kept saying they would send it after. I said if I tell you the verification code then you can take my money off the card. I just felt it was a scam and did not purchase the card. They were Indian Accent also. I even asked them why did they have american names when they were not from america. The numbers called from were 202-241-0778 ( Washington, DC), 512-800-8411 (Texas), 817-400-0794 (Texas), 646-358-6245 (New York).

Our office just received a call from this person as well. He sounded Indian and claimed to be a police officer in CA but had a NY number (516)986-6450. We called him out about the phone number and he quickly changed his story. The first man's name was David Cooper and the second person we spoke to was Sean Marsh. Both sounded like the same man. When we hung up he called back repeatedly (10 times). He finally stopped calling back when we informed him that the line was recorded. It was weird, he kept asking if we wanted to F#@* with our coworkers. ???? Beware!

Good grief you guys are just begging to be scammed! To the OP, really, it was the amount that tipped you off? Not an unverifiable business, not a pre-payment for a loan?
And there is a law against this, it's called "fraud". The law won't protect you from being *** though.

I was checking into online payday loans and received a few calls from different companies on july 22 and i called them back tonight july 30 to see what they were about, the first place is american loan saying they will put $2,000 n my acct but i needed to provide $175 to show i can make the monthly payments first the the money would be deposited within 10 min, their # is 213-438-9794 and the mans name is sam wilson. The 2nd place told me i was approved $1,000-$5,000 whichever i wanted so i told them $3,000, he said i had to gey a verification voucher from a neighborhood store for $203 to show i could come up with the monthly payments and to call when i had the voucher and $3,000 would be deposited within 10 minutes, his name is henry scott but didnt sound American one bit and his # is 812-200-9807 ext 203 and i believe the company is cashland usa, so they say, needless to say im not sure if its a scam but im not giving it a chance so ne on the lookout for these two places.

What part are you "not sure if it's a scam" about?
**No reputable loan company** will ask you to prepay for your loan to "prove" you can pay. That's why they do due diligence and verify employment/income history.
Some banks will ask you to deposit money in an account under your name as collateral for a secured loan, but that's a completely different thing. *AND*, you will still go through the due diligence process of income and work history verification.
This is why there are so many scammers out there, because there are so many people willing to quickly be the victims.

I get calls from these people all the time. Just received a call this morning. The number showing on caller ID was 815-566-3404. The guy --- named Alvin something-or-other --- I asked for his direct number. He gave me 312-428-5478.
Of course he was talking about loan that I applied for ------ told him I had NOT applied for a loan and that I know had enough information to start an investigation. He hung up the phone so fast! I also blocked the number.

These people are scammers the latest number is 303-498-9234 and 601-879-6264. They also call from 911 and I went to the police and they said no police department will call you from 911 it will be a regular number and they are not going to call you and tell you that you will be picked up in 3 hr. I have lost money and wished I would have checked the web first. Please don't fall for it and report as much information as you can. If you are in NC call the NC Depart of Justice 1-877-566-7226.

I also received an email fromCashAdvance Payday loan. Said i had been approved for a $3000 loan. They pulled up my information from a website where I was inquiring about how to apply for government grants. I was told to call a # to confirm. I had never applied to this so called company. I called the # just to see what the scam was and a recording said that the majic jack customer I was calling was not available. Don't be deceived, this is a scam.

I had this happen to me also..except I first received an email stating that I defrauded American Cash Advance.These people were supposed to be a law firm naned Hawkins Law Firm.They left the contact number to call the Senior Attorney Rebecca Brown.I already knew it was a scam because the grammar was awful.
I was bored at work and decided to let a coworker listen in as I called.A woman threatened that I was going to be tried in court in a couple of days yada yada.I asked to be able to settle out of court and she basically handed the phone to an Indian fella.He made similar threats and told me I owed them $200 plus late fees totalling $495.I basically laughed and told them I was worth more money than ACA has ever handled.Please send me this on a company letterhead and a signed agreement from ACA.He refused,I said I will see you in court then.Then the punch line.He said the Sherrif will call me in 45 minutes to arrest me....rotfl.
Please dont fall for it.Call the FBI And give all info to help catch them.
Meanwhile until they are caught,I am calling all times of the night and wee hours just to remind them,YOU are going to jail.......

I have been called by different people all day from the same office/house. They were pretty much harassing you none stop with these scam offers. As one of the comment said "too good to be true" type of amount to be given to you. What's crazy is, these people have obtained our personal information through these legitimate website, which then spreads our information to other 3rd party people to do w.e they want with it.
Do not fall so easy about these FOREIGN scams, trust me I'm foreign, but wtf is up with these other desperate mfrs. People like these don't care about nothing, why the *** do you think people ask for cash advance? To facilitate/resolve their unfortunate financial situations, yet these people want to bring you down to the ground some more? *** no!!
Watch your credit score and transactions people, with anyone, anywhere, not just foreigners lmao (coming from a foreigner :) ), the foreigner thing doesn't matter. It's everywhere, but I'm just saying to be aware of things that we've been hearing for years. If it's too good to be true, then it ain't real! That statement will live on for millions of years to come and will always work. There will come situations where it's actually true, but 1/1000. Anyways, I hope you all find a way to sustain your lives and financial situations, hopefully somewhere along the road you will find some level of support/relief.
Good luck!
