Type of a scam Phishing

I am a Disabled Veteran that was looking for a small business loan, in which I received. But the agent sent me over the amount I asked for, and when I sent the extra funds back, he had me send it to 4 different people. My bank shut my account down, and CASH ADVANCE AMERICA took all of my funds, basically leaving my account in the negative of $4500.00.

A guy name Justin Gren said I was qualified for a personal loan 8000, called asked for minimum. He said it was $3000.00 and would have to pay a total of $250 for 14 months, said they would need to verify I was able of make payments said to put $200 on an itune gift card and to read them the code....they had all my info (last 4 ssn, banking, address, email) so I thought it was safe. Then he said they couldn't verify my bank zip code that they will money gram it, then said I would need pay the money gram fee of 307.95, explain I didn't have that, said to do $200 on itune giftcard and pay remaining once I get the money. Then he said I would have to pay 395.95 to get the funds load to the money gram account. I told them I didn't have it and they should have told me up front, he put me on hold for about 10 to 15 mintues, then sd he will pay that out of his pocket and said the fund will be available on Monday morning and will call be back.

This place calls me from a Washington DC number claiming to be Cash Advance America, claiming they want to give me a loan for 3000-10000 wired to your bank account and you are 100% approved. They will tell you to go get a itunes card and put 201.00 dollars on it for the Federal Government to identify you are and that you have money. I told them I am not stupid and will not send them money and that I am reporting them as scammers. They say they are partners with BBB and I tell them I will call and verify that, I did and seen where others have reported them. The supposedly manager "Mike Johnson" got mad because I told him they were scammers and I was reporting them and told me he dont have a loan for me anymore and hung up on me. I was called back immediately by another employee trying to talk me into getting a itunes card and assured me they worked for the government and was partners with the I told him again I was no fool and would be reporting him. He tells me I have bad credit and nobody else would offer me a loan. This is how they scam people in with low credit, people think they can not get a loan somewhere else, so they fall for it. I googled their number and it doesn't exsist, or I couldn't find it. Forgot to mention, I was put through to 3 different people, whom all didn't speak english well.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I went online and applied for a $2,000 loan with Cash Advance America. I received a call from someone saying that I had been approved but needed so send them some money for verification. The guy told me to go to Wal-Mart and purchase some Itune cards. I have purchased about $1100 worth of I tune cards and given them the information. Then I received a call from Josh Cooper. He said they need some more money. They wanted me to max out my credit card. I had told him earlier that I only had maybe $175 left on my card. I decided to check with the BBB before I sent any more money.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

Last wk. I received 4 calls from the above during the day. The man explained my loan for $5000.00 had been approved. I told him i had not applied for any loans recently. We discussed the loan amounts and monthly payments, as i was curious where this was going. He proceeded to verify my address and banking info. I inquired about how and when monthly payments were paid. He then told me I would have to purchase a 'vanilla' pre-pd. master or visa card. Put the monthly payment of 136.00 on it and call him with the card info. The loan (2000.00) would be wired to my account within 30 minutes. Having had a few loans over the course of 30 yrs., I never came across this type of payment plan before. He reassured me this is how his company does business. I told him I would have to call him back the following day with my decision. Needless to say, I did not call him back. That pre-paid card kept playing through my head. I'm thankful he didn't get a hot penny from me; but was still annoyed that this company is stealing from Americans right and left. (Gave the name Eric Johnson, which would have been more believable had he not had a Pakistani accent!!) Hopefully, this complaint will save others from a scam. Thank you.

My girlfriend found this company online when trying to apply for a loan. They had me go to the dollar store to get a $200 MoneyGram to send to them. They said they will then need another $200 for insurance purpose. They insisted I stay on the phone with them when I went to get these MoneyGrams.

"Jason" called saying he was representing Cash Advance America, and was calling to tell me that I had been approved for a $5000 loan to be repaid over a period of 36 months. He stated that this "loan" was the result of my online loan request (which I don't remember doing). He had ALL my personal information including my full name, address, home phone number, date of birth, email address, source of income and amounts, SS#, my bank account # and bank routing #.

He indicated that the funds would be deposited in my checking account before our call was ended. However, he then determined that they needed to "verify" MY identity so they didn't give the money to some undeserving person instead of me who really needs the loan to pay off small credit cards and improve my credit score. He told me to go to the local Dollar General store and put $200 (the amount of the first payment) on a "card" and then call him from the Dollar General store so that they could verify that I am "who I say I am." At that point I told him I felt uncomfortable doing that since he/they could then steal that $200 from me very quickly and I would be out what little bit of money I had saved. I told him I would call him when I got to Dollar General, then I ended the call. Obviously, my SCAM alerts in my brain were working overtime, so I'm submitting this report. Here are the specifics he gave me:

Address: Cash Advance America, 2180 Westwood Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90025.

Phone: 310-362-4879 is his "hotline"


Business License Number: CA99-162248

My "unique" Customer ID Number: CA551892

I believe this to be a SCAM. Thank you!

I can only hope they don't take money out of my checking account somehow.

Cash advance america. Claims to have approved me for a loan in the amount of $5000.00 but i need wite them first payment of loan agreement person to person via money gram and they will then send my loan with the 181.00 advanve payment back to me within 50 minutes. They claim they work with bbb as well. Just sounds fishy to me. When you call a man with an Indian accent answers but doesnt say the name of the business then they transfer you to a guy who was named paul smith but also with a heavy indian accent and sounding very much like the person that answered already. They claim that your credit is low but they are going to give me the loan anyways as long as i oay the first payment of the agreed installments yet they will give the payment right back on top of the loan amount.

He stated an email was sent to me with loan confirmation documents that I could sign and then call him back. I called back he answered the phone cash advance america scott miller. I told him why i was calling and he found my file without me giving.him any info. He then stated he was transferring me to Mark Watson and put me on hold. A man returned with an Indian accent trying to change his accent to no longer being Indian. He stated he had my bank info and ss# he would deposit $4000 into my account but 1st he had to verify that I was financially stable. I needed to get a government issued bond showing I had $ in my account or he would deposit $ and when I received it send it back via money gram. I hung up. Im concerned he has my ss# and bank info. I wanted to alert others to this scam.
