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

its against the law to ask or require any money upfront for a loan, the money has to be in your possession for 7 days before they can ask for payment

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.

Hi! just another pissed off Consumer, in regards to the SCAM that these
foreign guys, that keep calling me...And stating that I have just received the approval of a $5,000.-$7,000. loan. They also wanted me to go put money on some green card at walmart, for the amount of $189.00. I then told him, that I don't have that kind of money right now? So, then he proceeded to tell me that it would be $129.00 and he would then put in the $60.00 But, I would have to then make sure that I paid, him back?...I said, "What?" Are you serious? And just Laughed at him... Then I hung up on him! It's a SHAME, That there are people out there Scamming/Stealing money from people like that! Don't Trust them....PLEASE!!!!

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.

The number that came up on my phone is (323) 739-5456
