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

The Federal Trade Commission and that so called "Do Not Call" *** should have stopped this *** years ago! He is too smart for those yoyo's.

I didn't realize a collection agency would email or call with threats. Rapid Collection Services LLC has emailed me threatening Bank Fraud, Theft by deception and violation of Federal Law of Deception.

Demanding payment and court action and payment arrangements. Is this legal?

I am trying to find out if this is connected to cashloanusa299@gmail.com --- Jack Smith in Chicago -- they say they have all my info and can send 5k in 45 mins if I give a state to state transfer of 75 -- this is the first text: "Hi, Congratulation This is to inform you that your application for online loan has been fully approved by our company and there is no any upfront charges to get this loan amount. So if you are still looking for a loan so call us back on our number which is 773-796-9005. Thank you." ---- is this the same guy?

I'm so glad I read this. I received a phone call where a guy named "Mike Anderson" told me I could get an installment loan for a minimum of $1500 and it would be paid over 9 months.

After going over information I read the email and felt uneasy about the process because the adobe file looked like a bad photo copy. He told me I would need to send $200 via Western Union to the insurance company they partner with and then I would receive the $200 back on top of the loan payment. Big red flag!

I was looking into a loan because I don't use a traditional bank and needed some extra cash that I was happy to pay back. It's unbelievable to me that there are people that try to take advantage of people that are already struggling with finances.

Its still going on today (March 10, 2016). If you get ANY unsolicited emails giving you a great deal on something you didnt look up on your own.

DONT DO IT!

Its probably coming from overseas and untraceable.
