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 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!

Please tell me if anyone followed thru what happened? I almost made the mistake of doing this as well. When I got to the gas station and saw this green dot card, it didn't seem right so I passed. I'm in desperate need of money but so glad I found this page and see I'm not alone here

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.
