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 am so glad I checked through google to see if anything had been reported.The same exact thing just happened with me.

They also asked me to send in a voucher. I knew that didn't sound right!

Glad I checked.And given my credit...$8000.00 was ridiculous :-) They should be ashamed!!!

I have been getting calls from a man with an acent also calling from a 312 number out of Chicago.He said i needed to have $150 iny account to be able to get $5000.

He said it was to make sure i could pay back the loan. I tried to call him back and got no answer or voice mail.

I couldn't understand why i would need to have money if I need to borrow money.He also said he was from Advance America????

This same man called me, and it really sounded too good to be true, so I googled this company and came across this. There should really be a law against this.
