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

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.

Yes they almost got me to. You are told to send a amount to get the loan. I was being evicted and really needed the money. But my gut was saying no. And i keep getting emails from them also.

I got an email from some foreign man then a call. I needed to pay $225 to get my $5000. I had recently applied for a loan. Why would I have to pay money to get money? There should be some type of punishment for this foolery.....

Ok, listen to this. This accented man, Indian maybe, not sure, but he calls and the call comes in from his side as an "emergency number." So I pick up and he says he's an officer with a case file for my arrest cause I owed money to a loan company called Cash Advance America. Its 8 in the morning so I'm half asleep and confused. He tells me to write my case file down and call this lawyer named "Sam Wilson". Now before I could get this so called officers name, badge number etc he hangs up.
So I call the number he provided 850-725-7078. This accented man answers the phone and by now in VERY SUSPICIOUS. He tries to rush me, saying I'm gonna go to jail and I'm like " I'm not giving you info over the phone. If this isn't a scam, I want to meet face to face in an office or talk to a rep. From this so called loan company. By this time I pulled up Cash Advance America online and saw an alert about scams. This supposed lawyer, Sam Wilson hung up on me when I refused to go further.
*** ruined my day. I called 911 to let them know what happened. They said it happened all the time around this year, tax season.
