Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I was contacted by Michele from cash advance America and offered a loan for $5,000. She said their company was affiliated with the bbb. Towards the end of the call she told me that when they sent the money by direct deposit into my account, I would have to Western Union the money back to their accounts and then they would make the final deposit of the$5000. I told her this sounds like a scam and she was adamant that it wasn't. After I hung up on her I called the and found out that in April 2017 they were told not to associate themselves with the and that they have an "F" rating with them. Beware of this scam.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

Received and email, after I applied for a loan, Mr. White, Sr.Loan Officer,. He informed me that because of my bad credit score my application had been forwarded to them, and that they could help me with my loan. Went on a two day live chat with another loan officers, she said all I need to do was verify my ability to repay the loan, so to do buy a "itune" card for $100.00 and provide her with the # on the back, that would verify my funds. I went back on the chat process with her and asked, (I already had a card with a few funds in it) I gave her the # she needed and she processed to tell me that all was good and funds would be available in the morning. In the morning I went back on "chat" with her and she informed me that they'd had a few stumbling blocks. My financial institute (bank) would not accept the funds, therefore I need to go pay a western fee of $175.00 to receive my loan funds. By then I knew they were a scam...We went back and forth for hours... I just couldn't get over the reasons and explanations she was giving me. I went back and forth, while chatting with her, on the internet until I found a phone #, that's when I got the privilege to speck with Mr. White. He put me on hold several times and then told me he was going to have Ms. Davis email me a PDF file of the funds at Western Union waiting for me, so I could verify with western union. But I would not be able to get funds until I paid that additional $175.00 fee to western union. At the end of the day they would attach an additional $275.00 to my loan amount to cover my expenses. Well come to find out Western Union does not charge the receiver they they charge the sender... Which I already knew. Needless to say I didn't follow through their steps and I'm only out $15.00 on my Itune card... Western Union its happening more & more every day..

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I had submitted information to a website for a cash advance. A Mr. Justin Green spoke with me claiming that he can help with a personal installment loan of $8,000. In desperation, I accepted this offer and he sent me an e-mail of the contract. He broke down percentages and monthly costs in the contract but insisted he speak over the phone with me about the offer.

Yesterday 4/12/17 he told me over the phone that the entire conversation is going to be recorded and we will sustain the conversation throughout the application process. He took my info and banking routing and account number.

At the beginning of the call he claimed that there will be NO out of pocket fees and explained his terms and conditions. Upon acknowledgement he told me that my application can not go through due to a low credit score but if I have $300 with me or in an account to verify that I have funds he can make the exception. I didn't have that money. I went to my cousin and borrowed it telling him I just need to prove that I have this money and I will get the loan.

I told Justin I had the money now approx. 4pm. ONCE VERIFIED, he asked me to go to Wal-Mart and purchase $300 in iTunes gift cards and to scratch off the backside of these cards and to send a picture to another email address of his to show verification. Stupidly; I complied and did as asked. Once the picture was sent he said to head to the bank and wait until he gives me the go ahead to verify that I have the money.

At the bank, he proclaimed that they tried to transfer the funds 6 times and all failed. It was then they realized that my county or living area was blacklisted by their company due to people not paying their loans. However; there was another method.

They insisted that I accumulate another $389 dollars to pay the transfer funds via Money Gram. I explained that I do not have those funds and I only have so much to my name. Justin laughed saying that was not going to help. I asked to speak to his superior. I do not recall his name but after speaking with him he said that they will figure something out and speak to me today 4/13/17.

After a round of phone tag I spoke with Justin again today. He said that in confidentiality between his company and me they were going to assist me with the $389 by depositing it into my bank account at midnight and by 7am tomorrow 4/14/17 I need to pull the funds out of the account and go to Moneygram and begin the process to get the $8000. It would be broken down in 4 transactions and would give me the reference numbers once I got to Moneygram. All I need to do is text him my username and password to my online banking and he would put the funds into the account as a hidden transaction. If I took the money and run we would both be in big trouble. I told him that I knew he was a scam and that I was not going to do that and he proceeded to tell me *** *** and *** *** and do not call him back so I hung up. He called back immediately saying why did I hang up and I told him because he didn't want me calling him anymore so our business is done. That I was going to lawyer up and press charges for having me spend $300 on iTunes gift cards.

Now the only thing I can think of him "verifying" is that he probably registered all six cards to otherwise there wouldn't be any way he could verify such. I haven't checked the cards and Wal-Mart nor Apple will refund me for these cards.

I want this person to deal with the consequences.. Give me the $8000 plus the $300 spent to verify everything.

CASE FILE #: ACS-51423

DUE AMOUNT - $714.32

File Transferred-February 2017

Dear Debtor,

As we put your Social Security Number into our National Checking

chance to take care of this issue outside the Court without having a

report on your Credit History and Social Security Number.

We regret that if we do not receive your response within the next 12

hours, we shall have no alternative but to take action through your

local County Courthouse to recover the amount due together with court

costs and legal fees which cost approximately 3025.86.






If Court action is taken and Judgment / Decree obtained against you to

recover the sum due, we may need to ask the court to make one of the

following orders should the debt remain unpaid:-

·Warrant of Execution (Exceptional Attachment Order). Seizure and sale

of movable non-essential assets / property by a County Court Bailiff or

Sheriff Officer

·Attachment of Earnings base (Earnings Arrestment). Deduction from your

wages by your employer or arrestment of part of your salary to satisfy

the debt

The Factual Basis for the complaints is as follows:-

You agreed to return the funds from the aforementioned income

advancement as per contract.

And as per the agreement the funds have yet to be returned and the

collateral has proven to be null that is to say of no value.

At present, ACS INC is seeking either of the following remedies:-

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I received a phone call from a man who said his name was Mark Thomas. He indicated that I had applied for a loan and that I had been pre-approved for $2000-$10000. I had applied for many payday or personal loans online so I could not say if I had actually applied online or not for this company. Mark had all of my personal information such as my name, address, phone number, last 4 of SSN, employer, bank info (account and routing number). He wanted to know my online password to my bank. I advised that I did not feel comfortable with this. I asked if he could send me a loan agreement in writing stating what the terms were. I received an email this morning with a loan agreement attached. The loan agreement looked like it was just typed on a word document, but it did look like some of the other loan agreements that I had seen. I called Mark up and asked him if he could provide me the website information so that I could see what it looked like and if I had actually applied. He told me no problem and directed me to the website of I went to the website but did not find that they offered loans in my state (NC). I also did not find the NY address that they gave me. I had googled the address and it did not come up as a business earlier this morning. I called the number on the website and spoke with someone named Jasmine. I explained the situation to her and she stated that I was not in their system by my name, or the last 4 of my SSN and that this was a scam. I called Mark back and advised what I had found. He asked for the name and phone number of who I called. I also informed him that on the website he provided to me, it states that they do not offer loans in my state (NC). He said that if I wasn't comfortable that he would void the loan. I asked him to contact me after he spoke with Jasmine and if I could confirm that I was in their system, I would proceed. The line went dead. Mark had hung up.

A gentleman contacted me regarding a loan from Cash Advance America. He indicated that I was pre-approved for a loan up to $5,000.00. He had my contact information, banking information, address, employer, etc. I was really suspicious. I asked him how did he obtain my information. He stated that he received it because I applied for a loan. I did apply for an online loan, but I didn't apply with his so called company. I wanted to talk with him to explore more about what he wanted to say. He then stated that he needed my personal login and password to my online account and that they were going to put some money in my account to verify my account number then they were going to transfer it back to the company and that the next day I would receive $5,000 in my bank account and I would have to pay $230 a month for 24 months. I asked him where were the loan documents for me to sign then, he stated I was pre-approved. This didn't sound right and I knew then, it was a scam. This wasn't the first time that I have heard of this type of approach. A month ago a person said they were from the same company, but sent me an email.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

This man called my phone telling me I was approved for a loan for $5,000. ( I had just applied online for loans last weekend) He said i was approved because of my low credit score they will add 11 points to my credit score each month. He had ALL my information already, social, bank account information, checking account number, etc. He verified to me all of my info and asked if it was correct. He then asked me to verify my identity by purchasing a itunes card because of scams involving pre-paid cards this card has no cash value and could not be redeemed by him. I did that (without thinking) He then told me since he reduced the deposit amount for the loan from 200 to 50 that he needed 50 more totalling 100 then $5000 will be sent to my account in 7 minutes. I hung up on him and he tried calling back i did not answer. He gave me his business license # 99-207-947LA. I believed he was an actual lender because he had all of my information and seemed legit. I was wrong.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I have been applying for personal loans to consolidate debt and I got a phone call yesterday afternoon stating that I was approved for the loan I needed. He knew all of my info and spoke with a middle eastern accent by the name of "John". This man said that he would deposit so much into my account and I would have to pay it back to get my credit score up to where it needed to be and that I would need to go to the closest place with a money gram with my debit card and ID to pay this said money back and he would walk me through the process. I did not do anything he told me to do because I found out it was a scam. When he called me this afternoon I did not answer any calls. In fact he started to text me with threats and called multiple times with different states area codes numbers. This person went to a certain extent that he called the sheriff's office posing as me stating that there was a domestic violence dispute at my home. I didn't find out the police really did come to my house until I got home from work. I called the sheriff's department and spoke with the dispatcher who spoke with this man who is doing all of this. So this person has scammed multiple people and there is stuff all over the Internet about this same story I just told. Please stop this man!!!

I applied for a loan through LENDING TREE.COM yesterday 9/18/16 within minutes i started getting spam in my email from "loan companies". So I decided against it. Today at 3:36pm cst i recieved a call from Micheal Anderson representing Cash Advance America. He told me i was approved for a $10,000 loan. Then proceeded to read over ALL my personal information. My Bank Account, Social Security Number, Address, Phone Numbers, etc. Then told me how it works is they deposit a lesser amount in my account, i immediately withdrawl it and send it via check back to them. At which time they will then deposit the $10,000. I said "hmm sounds fishy" He then proceeded to tell me all i had to do was fill out a form that he was currently emailing me. So i checked my email. It went straight to my spam folder but i got it. It had questions on it regarding my bank account, my social security number, my name, address, then lastly My ONLINE banking information. Which i was quick to ask about. He told me it so that they can verify i recieved the funds themselves. I said i would have to think on it and call back if i was interested. We said good bye and hung up.
