|On August 10, 2011, I received a call at work from Christine to advise me that charges have been filed against me in California for Bank Fraud among other charges for monies i received from a cash advance company, whose name they could not give me but whose parent company is Cash Advance Group (according to Christina they own 500 websites). She gave me the amount of $577.17 as the monies owed to this company. They also asked for my attorneys informatioin but when i insisted that they provide more information as to the "loan" that i was gven or the name of the specific company who "provided" the loan, Christina just kept repeating her speech about officers coming to my job to arrest me and that i needed to speak to the officers. Apparently even though she claimed to be looking at my account(she had my email address, last 4 digits of my social security number, etc) she could not or would not provide any specific information as to her claim. She also stated that if i did not settle my account with them i would be responsible for $73,000 in additonal fines and fees in additon to attorneys fees. The call ended when i informed her i would not be making any payments and i would just wait for the officers to come to my job (i work at an attorney's office) tomorrow to arrest me.|
|Today I recieved a phone call from 949-258-8584 by a woman named Michelle Brown. She had told me that I owe a company from back in April 2011 on which I have not recieved anything from them. I told her to give me a minute and I would pull my account information up on my computer. The amount I would have to have is around 4, ooo plus dollars. If I did not have the money I would be arrested and taken down to California and have to pay other legal fees on top of other things. I called the FTC, and the BBC to file a complaint. I also called the local police in the are from which the call came from. I asked for a case number and was told that would be given to me tomorrow when the police arrive to arrest me. I called this agencies and I was told it is a scam. I hope it is because there is no way I can pay for this and I cannot afford to be arrested while trying to make a living. There was also no talk about setting up payments and I have had no calls referring about this company until today.|
|I received a call on August 20th, 2011 at my job from a foreign speaking man stating that I had charges filed against me in the State of CA for Federal Banking violations, and other charges (I could not understand him very well), When I asked him what he was talking about, he said something about money I had borrowed from Cash adavance. I proceeded to tell him that I had never borrowed any money from any company online, The man said that the police would be at my job on Monday to serve me papers AND arrest me and I would be required to go to CA and face charges in court. I was dumbfounded! I had NO idea what this was about. When I called the number back 949-258-8584, nobody would answer, a recorder said the mailbox was full. I was so mad and upset at this point I didn't know what to do. I called the local police, and they referred me to the Fruad Unit. Unfortunately this happened on a Saturday and they were closed. So I waited until Monday (8-22-2011) and called these people again (the scam people). This time a Michelle Brown answered. I started telling her to exxplain to me exactly why they thought I owed money to Cash Advance Group. She said that I borrowed money in April 2011 ( WHICH I NEVER DID) . I explained to her that I had never even heard of Cash Advance Group. Michelle Brown told me that I had borrowed 300.00 but with all of the fees I now owed over $4000.00 and she also said that the police would be at my home in 4 hours. I started searching online for the name of their so called company Department of Legal Affairs and Business Regulations. Thats when I found that they are doing this to lots of people! This has to be illegal, threatening to have a person arrested at their job or at their homes. OH, these people had my SSN, work number, home number and my email address. I have contacted my attorney, he advised me that this is a violation of the Federeal Fair Debt Collections Act. If ANYONE has these people calling and threating you, PLEASE contact the police and your attorney, These scums MUST BE STOPPED. This is America, and this kind of thing is totally unacceptable. This is harrassment and if everyone that they are calling and threatening will take a stand of some kind...maybe, just maybe we can get these lowlives shut down.|
|today i recieve a call from a man saying i accepted money from a cash advance company and if i don't retune his call good luck, so i called back an a woman picked up the phone and i told her i reported this info to the local police department i my state she stated that she not scared of me an hung up the phone 08/23/11 i did report this to the local police about some one else calling with the sdame info.|
|Today i received a phone call from cash advance group. The told me that I owed 499 dollars. I was to go to court when I got the documents and pay this amount or it would cost me 2000. I now realize that these people are scam artist since I have never defaulted on anything. The next time they call, I am going to tell them that i spoke to the police and that if they have documents then they need to serve them.|
