Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I was looking for a loan online and this person somehow notified me

Said I was approved , and demanded my banking info

I asked him for a way to confirm his business like a way to call it besides his cell phone and he proceeded to insult me and state I am wasting his time...he had not only my social security number but my full name as well... I might add he had a Indian / Pakistan accent

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I received this message and did not respond. I looked for information about the company on line before calling the number back and learned from a lot of reviews that people were scammed by many portraying to work for this company. The scammer would ask the customer to get some sort of prepaid gift or iTunes card put so much money on it then give them the information of the card. They said this was a way they knew that they would be paid back or the scammer would ask for your personal information (bank account and touting number, social security number, etc). Some people would actually do it. Not me. I left that page to report this as a scam alert. If it was legitimate I would not be contacted through a text. I would have received an email stating sign documents if interested. So please don't fall for the many scams out in the world. This is exactly how I received the message:

please call us back on the same number.

Warn the public that this scam asks for acct. number, routing number and then for fees associated with acquiring the loan as well as your online banking user name and password for one day. After I refused the language changed to I will send you money if you send me back half.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

The scammer will call and tell you that you got approved for a loan amount like $2,000 or more and that you have to pay$100 Insurance fee for the loan and after you pay the $100 Insurance fee your funds will be directly deposited into your account after they receive the $100 Insurance fee but you have to go like to CVS Walgreens or Walmart to purchase a stream card or gift card of $100

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I received a phone call from Ramon Clifford, who claimed to be a Senior loan Officer for Advance America. He said I was approved for a $1000 loan and I needed to send $110 via a Google Play gift card. He said that it needed to be in that format because he could not verify my bank account information, so this would be verification of my ability to pay my first month's payment for the loan. I visited a local Walgreens and purchased the card. Ramon asked for me to send a picture of the gift card code via text message and I did.

After sending the pictures, Ramon stated that I needed to send an addition $100 for disability coverage, to ensure that if I was unable to make my monthly payments that the insurance would pick it up. At this point, I decided I did not want to move forward with the loan. I asked for my money back and Ramon said that he would not and that I should not contact him again.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

I have been receiving emails about me supposedly had taking out a loan and they looking to collect a debt. They had a phone number in one email. Tried calling it and you can tell it was a number from like a google number. Then a few months later another email came through saying I fail to pay so they was going to garnish my check and give me an arrest warrant. This been happening for a while. Now the emails are showing back up saying that the arrest warrant will be issued out and I will have to pay the 783.67 or they will sue me for 4,300. I been looking up the names they gave and trying to figure out what is going on. My friend told me to go to the website and put in a claim for fraud and that they will help. This is ridiculous how people try to scare you into paying money because they don’t know how to get a job like any regular person. Sad thing is they might do have a job but being greedy. I hope that this helps and I can get the word out to others.

They have been contacting me via phone daily over past week and email over 1 year. Karen Macy at Ace legal firm is representing advance America. They claim I have unpaid loan from them in September 2015. Say they are taking me to court going to contact my employer. I actually spoke someone who said they were in Florida but would not give me company name. They want repayment in form of iTunes cards. Really?

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I had received an offer what I thought was a legitimate payday loan offer. I Called the person listed on the offer letter. He told me that there was a processing fee of $100.00 which I could purchase an iPhone gift card and load that money on it, which i ended up doing. Then, the next day came. He said that I needed to purchase insurance for the loan. That's when I realized there was something wrong and that I needed to do some research. My research led me here.

To whom it may concern: Do not talk to anyone claiming they are from Advance America (SC), they will advise you to go to any CVS, or Walgreens, they are liars and this guy saying his name is Jason Brown number is from 803-220-1435. Do not give any information and send money. Who ever is reading this, BE AWARE!! They claim you are approve for $2000, its BS. It is under investigation with this matter.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I was looking for a loan and this company called me to offer me a loan. Once offered they told me that my bank did not accept deposits from them and I would have to pay $50. I had to buy an iTunes card and send them a picture of it. Then the next day they said there was a 75.00 fee but assured me there wouldn't be another. So I did it and now they will not even take my calls. They are using the Advance America symbol from the well known payday loan company

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

Jenny called with a thick accent that reminded me of possibly India but I am not 100% sure. She said she was with Advance America in regards to my loan application. Which I have applied to many loans recently and I do not remember every single loan results that I applied for. Assuming it was legit enough as the name sounded close enough. She first asked me how much I wanted to borrow. It was approved almost to quickly and without hesitation. Then requested to have personal information texted to the number she was calling from. The background noise was not that of a typical loan agency. Information was texted to two different phone numbers. In which after the info was given, Jenny changes the plan and requests to know if there is some bad credit or open account under my name. There is I informed her of my directtv account. She informs that she will have the lender put $200 into the account, in which I was to send back the money before I would receieve my loan amount. "To build credit".

Jenny: Do you have any stores near you?

Me: Walmat

Jenny: Can you go to walmart now?

Me: What Am I getting at walmart?

Jenny: Payment.

This payment was not explained fully. I was unsure if it was to be a MoneyGram or a gift card. She was pushy and raised her voice multiple times getting bossy like. I informed her that she did not need to talk to me in that manner.

I was already suspicious of the situation as she logged into my bank account. But, I was done when she requested the deposit verification code given via text message to my phone from my bank. I asked her how come you need the code? She said to verify it is you to deposit. I question why my direct deposit did not need this code. Then I was done. I knew it smelled off from the beginning. I tried to get as much information out of her as possible once I realized that is loan was not a good idea to continue with.
