USA CASH ADVANCE AMERICA.....SCAM!!

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 received the loan documents in my email. I thought to good to be true. I called them. I reached a man that could barely speak English. He informed me to prove I had $250.00 in my account. When i advised I did not have that in my bank account he became mean. Yelled at me and said "Find someone to borrow the funds from now." I then told him cancel everything delete my info from his system. They already had all of my personal info which was scary. I sent the documents to the actual company Cash Advance America since they were making it seem they were representing them. That actual company was not pleased. Major scam....

I received a call today from a Chris Jones and was asked to do the exact same thing and he said I had 2 hours to call back and he said to call before I went in the store. I'm no dummy and hate to say my credit isn't that good for a $5000.00 loan so I knew it was something wrong. Hope every one uses there brain.

They call me all the time, emails too. I like how they are all East Indian and they all have names like "John Smith". That should be your first red flag. No legitimate loan company, even if they are loan sharks, are going to ask you for money up front. So sad that they prey on desperate people. Law enforcement doesn't seem to care as these same people are still operating all over the US. I called my local PD and they pretty much gave me the "isn't my job" line. Very sorry to all of you that lost your money to these creeps. How do they sleep at night?

I've had that same situation and I've never taken out a loan thru Cash Advance America. I was feeling uneasy about the way they were dealing with it and so I called Cash Advance America and they said that they are aware of the scam and that if you have any info to file a report at www.IC3.gov and to send them an email at comments@advanceamerica.net
I'm going to do both of theses things and I suggest you do it to so hopefully they will be closer to catching theses guys! It's really scary when they are saying that they are going to be putting a warrant for your arrest and everything and I almost fell for it. DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY MONEY!!!!

Yes they are scams!!! Do not fall for it. They scammed me for 240$ then when I loaded it onto a vanilla reload card they took it and said my bank account did not accept the transfer!! They asked me to send 380$$ so they could send thru western union that's when I know I got scammed. So I told them to send me my money back and they said they would send it back thru mail in 90 days. So yea I got scammed.

Yeah I went through cashnetusa and they sent me a email a few days later saying I got approved and then they told me to put down 300 on a PayPal card so I went and did it then they told me my loan would be in there 30 minutes later. I went and checked there was nothing so I called then and they said they needed another two hundred I went to my bank and the police department it's a huge scam and they called me from tte number (716) 240 0082
