904-900-8341 Consumers across the country report that they're getting telephone calls from people trying to collect on loans the consumers never received or on loans they did receive but for amounts they do not owe - Others are receiving calls from people seeking to recover on loans consumers received but where the creditors never authorized the callers to collect for them - So what's the story?The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation's consumer protection agency, is warning consumers to be on the alert for scam artists posing as debt collectors - It may be hard to tell the difference between a legitimate debt collector and a fake one - Sometimes a fake collector may even have some of your personal information, like a bank account number - A caller may be a fake debt collector if he:is seeking payment on a debt for a loan you do not recognize; refuses to give you a mailing address or phone number; asks you for personal financial or sensitive information; or exerts high pressure to try to scare you into paying, such as threatening to have you arrested or to report you to a law enforcement agency - If you think that a caller may be a fake debt collector:Ask the caller for his name, company, street address, and telephone number - Tell the caller that you refuse to discuss any debt until you get a written "validation notice -" The notice must include the amount of the debt, the name of the creditor you owe, and your rights under the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act - If a caller refuses to give you all of this information, do not pay Paying a fake debt collector will not always make them go away - They may make up another debt to try to get more money from you - Stop speaking with the caller - If you have the caller's address, send a letter demanding that the caller stop contacting you, and keep a copy for your files - By law, real debt collectors must stop calling you if you ask them to in writing - Do not give the caller personal financial or other sensitive information - Never give out or confirm personal financial or other sensitive information like your bank account, credit card, or Social Security number unless you know whom you're dealing with - Scam artists, like fake debt collectors, can use your information to commit identity theft – charging your existing credit cards, opening new credit card, checking, or savings accounts, writing fraudulent checks, or taking out loans in your name - Contact your creditor - If the debt is legitimate – but you think the collector may not be – contact your creditor about the calls - Share the information you have about the suspicious calls and find out who, if anyone, the creditor has authorized to collect the debt - Report the call - Contact the FTC and your state Attorney General's office with information about suspicious callers - Many states have their own debt collection laws in addition to the federal FDCPA - Your Attorney General's office can help you determine your rights under your state's law -> www -ftc -gov bcp edu pubs consumer alerts alt -shtm

9049008341 Shawn Sean White was the "attorney" I was transferred to me -  He seemed very surprised that I had not been arrested by my local sheriff's department yet on the warrant -  He was also surprised when I told him I am an attorney and that in the United States we do not arrest people for debts even if they were legitimate instead of fraudulent [***] -  I called the number back and he picked up -  I asked for his bar number and he didn't know what that was -  Unfortunately I think short of blocking these people or changing your number you might just be stuck with the calls -

Post by James in Sacramento,

904-900-8341 I am an attorney -  This guy had been bothering my client so she referred him to me -  These guys are brazen -  I received a call from Shawn White, young male with an Indian or Pakistani accent -  He says he works for U -S - Legal Services and calling me to collect a pay day loan that I failed to pay on a loan she obtained from Cash Advance America -  Says he is a licensed attorney in Florida, and works for Jonathan Marshall -  I immediately searched the Fl state bar attorney search and neither came up as licensed -  I asked for a phone number, he gave me -- -  I confronted him about not being licensed in FL, and he just kept asking how we are going to pay the debt -  I asked to speak to a supervisor, he put his hand over the phone and asked someone next to him what does "supervisor" mean, came back on the line and said he had to go, he will call me back and he was short on time -  I asked him to stay on the line so we could keep talking, and he hung up -  I immediately called the number he gave me and it was not active -

904-900-8341 This is an offshore payday loan debt collection extortion scam that has been going on for at least five years - The FBI is aware of it but is unable to go after those involved due to lack of money and manpower - I looked back and found some old information which may prove to be helpful: They obtained your information through Teletrack:Kudos to "Sam" for giving the most intelligent and informative posts on this scam - READ, Bookmark and use as needed:notes -com Phone -aspx --- I have been receiving phone calls from this group since late April early May of -  There is a good chance that they also attempted to contact me roughly two years ago before I entered into Chapter Bankruptcy protection, as I faintly remember hearing the same script more or less - As others have stated, the callers are difficult to understand -  Generally speaking their command of the English language is quite poor and their accents are hard to follow - At times they will get certain words or phrases mixed up -  It would be funny if it wasn't for the fact that they had:a) Your SSNb) Your home addressc) Your work addressd) Your banking infoe) Names, numbers and potentially the addresses of "references"f) A complete and total lack of ethics and a basic understanding of the FDCPA -  I have personally filed reports with the following agencies, often with limited (if any) success:Local Policemy state's Attorney General's officeFTCFBISecret ServiceGenerally the local police won't be able to help much -  The callers are using a combination of prepaid cell phones and VoIP, making them difficult to trace -  Also at their disposal are various spoofing tactics being implemented to catch people off guard - meaning the number that appears on your Caller ID isn't the number that is calling you for starters -  Without gaining a subpoena for the billing information for the numbers in question, the local police won't be able to get very far -  My state's Attorney General's office couldn't offer much assistance either -  I received a form letter in the mail that my complaint was received and I would be contacted if they needed additional info -  It was more or less the same information I obtained from the FTC -  They each advised me not to give the individuals over the phone any account information or to authorize payment -  That's just common sense, though -I never got anything from the FBI, either -  There is a good chance that since I haven't suffered a monetary loss that my concerns are low on the totem pole -  I hate to say this, but that is truly the case - Unless you were in the hole for a , (or more) you aren't going to get much more than "sorry to hear about your situation, change your phone number and move on" -  I seemed to get some activity from the Secret Service -  I spoke with agent Doug Zloto - (Google him, referencing threads like these plus his name and you'll find his number also)  He seemed to care a bit more than the average person, but after giving him access to my Google Voice account, there has been no further activity from him that I'm aware of -In the meantime I changed the wireless number the fraudsters had access to, they have no direct way to get a hold of me -  (Calls at work have ceased for some reason)  That in turn resulted in my "references" getting phone calls from the crooks -  Here is a word of caution for women that have been getting these calls - don't say anything and just hang up -  The callers are quite abusive towards women callers -  Why?  Possibly the culture -  If they are Indian Pakistani, women are second class citizens there -  You will be treated like garbage -  This happened to a family member when she was trying her best to be extremely nice over the phone -  The callers currently attempt to reach me through the female family member and an unused Google Voice number that they managed to find of mine -  I keep the Google Voice number open because, well, I can't delete it yet -  So, about every day, - times a day for the last week, I get voice messages from them -  It's usually just two full messages though - the other calls are broken up with static or they are attempts to read the script until the callers then screw up -  Really, they are that adamant on getting the script % that they will hang up mid-sentence and call back seconds later -  At this point it's a stalemate with these people -  ) While they have the lion's share of information on us, they can't really do anything with this information -  Why?  Think about it -If they were to ever take funds out of your account without authorization, it's fraud and worse (for them) it is traceable -  That's why they won't do anything with your information, contrary to threats they make -  The money from your account has to go somewhere, and either your bank or a law enforcement agency can determine where the money was routed -  As a bank customer you are protected - you'd get the stolen money back in your account after - business days and the bank would be temporarily out the funds deducted from your account while they conducted their investigation -  The bank, along with law enforcement, would track down the fraudsters and apprehend them -  The fraudsters do not want to incur the wrath of a bank, just extort money out of you -  Remember that -    Your authorization would absolve the bank from any and all liability, leaving you holding the bag -  Never give them authorization for anything - for all you know the call is recorded -  ) We have no information on them -Seriously, this has been going on at least since , possibly longer than that based on some accounts - ( years??? Holy crap)  You would think someone would have slipped up by now -  Sadly, they haven't -  We can continue to grow our own intel on them and compile lists of aliases and phone numbers used, along with paraphrases of scripts used in order to educate other victims -  I'm actually putting together a site now in the meantime where I'll host audio files and lists of previous numbers used -  notes -com is great, but no two calls are exactly the same -  It would be nice to have a site dedicated to the scam and how it works - So that's where I am with these calls -  I have suffered no monetary loss, though I have been harassed both at home and at work -  They threaten me with arrest and other "fun" things in order to get me convinced I have to pay them -  My friends and family have been targeted and local and federal law enforcement agencies haven't been able to put a stop to things -  So, it is what it is -  I am out a wireless phone number I had for roughly six years, which is terrible since I was using that line when looking for a new job -  Whenever I'm bored I spoof my number using Google Voice and return the calls -  I've called them the poster children for birth control, etc -  Basically a lot of nasty things that I'm sure the moderators here wouldn't appreciate me repeating - bottom line nothing nice -  I always like to close saying their parents must be real proud knowing their sons weren't man enough to get real jobs -  That usually gets a decent response -  Way I see it - they can't do anything to me - (Despite a threat yesterday that my life would be f'ed up)  They can threaten all they want but my credit is frozen and my bank information has changed -  I've changed the only number they could really access me directly on and I've instructed my employer and family to not answer the calls -  I just call and harass them now when I find a few extra seconds -  What's the worst they can do to me?  Charge me with harassment?  Nope, then they would have to identify themselves -Oh, and don't bother contacting Cashnet USA about the calls -  Their "fraud" department could honestly care less -  Their "investigation" is merely a means of buerocratic CYA -  I would even be surprised at this point if actual law enforcement is involved in any shape, way or form at this time -  There is a good chance that the information these crooks have on us was obtained from Cashnet USA - either from a database leak or from a collector that was once authorized by Cashnet to call on delinquent customers -  The other chance is they have access to Teletrack, and pulled all of our information off of there -notes -com Phone -aspx --- For at least the last four years, possibly longer, a group has been calling former payday loan applicants advising them that they have defrauded a bank and are now being sued for non-payment of a loan -  The callers will claim to be calling on behalf of an attorney's office (name varies), the Dept - of Law and Investigation, ACS, or other similar combinations below:United Legal Processing DivisionMidline MarketingCrime Monitoring ServicesMonetary Crime DivisionU -S - National Bank Attorney General’s Office (usually in California)American Legal ServicesAffidavit Consolidation Services (ACS)You will be threatened with arrest, a costly trial and possibly worse -  In no shape, way or form can you be arrested for non-payment on a consumer debt -  Do not believe these threats, as they are without merit and cannot be carried out in the manner they allege -  Who are they? In the past when pressed by law enforcement for an address, the callers have provided the following information:David Morgan and AssociatesMorgan & AssociatesMorgan Associates-- Northwest th Street Wintergarden, Florida   (Address is likely invalid)The collector's MO matches a once legit collections agency called Ellis Crosby & Associates -  Here are some links on them:www -budhibbs -com collectorpages ellis_crosby_and_associates -htmwww -budhibbs -com collectorpages EllisCrosbyJudgment -pdfThey have been previously fined over - million for various violations -  They have been known to use phone banks in India to make their calls, which more or less coincides with the difficult to understand accent many of us detect when we are contacted -   The last time this group went by any "official" name was back in :Ellis Crosby & Associates Douglas & Morgan Associates Southside Boulevard Suite #Jacksonville Florida Phone:  -- () -(Address is likely invalid)There are NUMEROUS consumer alerts out against this group of individuals:Florida:jacksonville -com tu-online stories met_ -shtmlKansas:  www -consumeraffairs -com news ks_debt_collection -htmlColorado:  www -coloradoattorneygeneral -gov press -

 " -received reports from individuals in Ohio and Illinois reference suspicious telephone calls they received - In both instances, the callers are reporting that a voicemail is received from a man, with a Middle Eastern accent, identifying himself as an officer working with the Financial Crimes Unit -  The message indicates that the reason for the call concerns a loan made by the receiver or someone in the receiver's family - The voicemail requests that a return call be made and a telephone number is provided - When a return call is made, the caller is asked to provide personal identifying information such as their date of birth and social security number -Reports indicate that the calls are frequent and persistent and that they even threaten arrest or legal action if information or money is not provided - It appears that the individuals making these calls may have access to some records connecting individuals and their relatives -  Missouri does not have a Financial Crimes Unit and all indications are that this is a fictitious agency - If you receive a similar phone call, please be advised that it is a scam and please contact your local law enforcement agency or the Missouri Information Analysis Center at -- -"Bottom line:Do not supply the callers with any additional information -  Inform them you have reported them to law enforcement and hang up -  If you haven't already, go ahead and report the calls to local law enforcement, your state's Attorney General and beyond -  Look up the local Secret Service branch's information in your area and get in contact with an agent there -  If you ever applied for a cash advance online, your information is out there -   Possible sources for the breach of your privacy are:* The scammers obtained your information from Teletrack - a reporting agency used by many cash advance lenders to determine their risk lending to you -  The service is able to tell cash advance lenders if you have existing loans with other companies, for example -  Many state laws prohibit borrowers from having more than two cash advances out at the same time - * The scammers created their own fake payday loan application site -  People looking for a cash advance went to the site and applied, thus freely providing the scammers with their information for malicious use at a later time -  * The scammers were able to get into the database(s) of cash advance lenders - probable targets being Sonic Payday and Cashnet USA -   How to protect yourself:* Inform your employer -  You are likely getting calls at home and or at work, so make sure your employer is aware the calls are part of a scam and to not take them seriously -  Advise the callers that they are no longer allowed to call you at work -  If they continue to call, document the date and time of the calls you received -  Save voice mails left if at all possible -  * Change your number(s) -  For some this may not be an option, for others a one-time number change can be done free of charge -Be advised - any references you listed on your payday loan application will be contacted -  Let those people know that this is a scam, and they can disregard - * Use Google Voice -  Google Voice is a great replacement voice mail system for just about any phone number you use -  Messages can be transcribed and voice mail recordings can be saved as mp files -  Pro Tip - call the scammers with a Google Voice number before turning off your old phone numbers -  Make sure when you call you identify yourself so they can start up their script -  At any point after they have your information pulled up just hang up -  They will then start religiously calling your Google Voice number -  At this point, you are free to change your regular phone number(s) and enjoy not having these people ever call you again -  (And laugh at the fact these people are basically talking to a brick wall several times a day)The scammers change their numbers frequently -  Law enforcement used to think it was because the callers ran out of minutes on their prepaid wireless accounts or they were shuttered due to fraud, but now they understand it's simply to evade detection by savvy consumers online -  With the proliferation of VoIP, it's even easier for the crooks to stay a couple of steps ahead of law enforcement -  Below is just a sampling of the + numbers that have been used in recent memory ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------So can they really do anything to you?It's not a simple yes or no answer -  Logic dictates that, if they really wanted to take you for a ride and drain your bank accounts, they already would have -  So, why haven't they?  Authorization -  Why do you think you are being called so much?  Perhaps it is because they like the sound of your voice?  No, they have to have your authorization to take any form of payment from you, period -  The callers know their audience, and that audience is typically a bunch of people that have applied for payday loans in the past -  Most of those people they call couldn't afford an attorney if they wanted one, and are so used to receiving collections calls that so long as they sound like a real collector, they will likely be perceived as one -Furthermore, they don't even really want to talk to your attorney - that just sounds official and scary enough -  A real attorney would take the callers to task and write them off as two-bit con artists -  The callers need you, in writing, to authorize payment against the fictitious debt they claim you owe -  Go ahead, ask them for proof you owe the debt - more commonly known as verification of debt -  See what they say -  A phone authorization carries very little weight, so if they have something signed by you on file, you are done for - and the callers know that -  That authorization is the only thing these callers are doing by the book, and for good reason -  If they just went all willy nilly and made an ACH debit from your checking account, without your written approval, you could in turn report the transaction as fraudulent to your financial institution -  In about - business days, you would get the funds returned to your account -  Then the scammers would be up against a bank and their team of lawyers and investigators -  Bottom line:If you haven't paid the callers a dime, don't -  If you planned on paying them to shut them up, just don't -  Remember - you are not being contacted by a legally licensed, ethically owned and operated collector -  Read up on the FDCPA - www -ftc -gov bcp edu pubs consumer credit cre -pdf - and know your rights -PS--The FBI sent out a Press Release on this scam just last week:Extortion Scam Related to Delinquent Payday Loans Washington, D -C - December ,  FBI National Press Office () -— filed under: Press Release The Internet Crime Complaint Center has received many complaints from victims of payday loan telephone collection scams - Callers claim the victim is delinquent in a payday loan and must repay the loan to avoid legal consequences - The callers purport to be representatives of the FBI, Federal Legislative Department, various law firms, or other legitimate-sounding agencies - They claim to be collecting debts for companies such as United Cash Advance, U -S - Cash Advance, U -S - Cash Net, and other Internet check-cashing services -According to complaints received from the public, the callers have accurate data about victims, including Social Security numbers, dates of birth, addresses, employer information, bank account numbers, and the names and telephone numbers of relatives and friends - How the fraudsters obtained the personal information varies, but in some cases victims have reported they completed online applications for other loans or credit cards before the calls started - The fraudsters relentlessly call the victim’s home, cell phone, and place of employment - They refuse to provide any details about the alleged payday loans and become abusive when questioned - The callers have threatened victims with legal actions, arrests, and, in some cases, physical violence if they do not pay - In many cases, the callers harass victims’ relatives, friends, and employers - Some fraudsters have instructed victims to fax a statement agreeing to pay a certain amount, on a specific date, via a pre-paid Visa card - The statement further declares the victim will never dispute the debt - If you receive these calls, do not follow the caller’s instructions - Rather, you should:Notify your banking institutions - Contact the three major credit bureaus and request an alert be put on your file - Contact your local law enforcement agencies if you feel you are in immediate danger - File a complaint at www -IC -gov - Tips to avoid becoming a victim of this scam:Never give your Social Security number—or personal information of any kind—over the telephone or online unless you initiate the contact - Be suspicious of any e-mail with urgent requests for personal financial information - The e-mail may include upsetting or exciting but false statements to get you to react immediately - Avoid filling out forms in e-mail messages that request personal information - Ensure that your browser is up-to-date and security patches have been applied - Check your bank, credit, and debit card statements regularly to make sure that there are no unauthorized transactions - If anything looks suspicious, contact your bank and all card issuers - When you contact companies, use numbers provided on the back of cards or statements www -fbi -gov news pressrel press-releases paydayloanscam_notes -com Phone -aspx ---

 Possibly the culture -  If they are Indian Pakistani, women are second class citizens there -  You will be treated like garbage -  This happened to a family member when she was trying her best to be extremely nice over the phone -  The callers currently attempt to reach me through the female family member and an unused Google Voice number that they managed to find of mine -  I keep the Google Voice number open because, well, I can't delete it yet -  So, about every day, - times a day for the last week, I get voice messages from them -  It's usually just two full messages though - the other calls are broken up with static or they are attempts to read the script until the callers then screw up -  Really, they are that adamant on getting the script % that they will hang up mid-sentence and call back seconds later -  At this point it's a stalemate with these people -  ) While they have the lion's share of information on us, they can't really do anything with this information -  Why?  Think about it -If they were to ever take funds out of your account without authorization, it's fraud and worse (for them) it is traceable -  That's why they won't do anything with your information, contrary to threats they make -  The money from your account has to go somewhere, and either your bank or a law enforcement agency can determine where the money was routed -  As a bank customer you are protected - you'd get the stolen money back in your account after - business days and the bank would be temporarily out the funds deducted from your account while they conducted their investigation -  The bank, along with law enforcement, would track down the fraudsters and apprehend them -  The fraudsters do not want to incur the wrath of a bank, just extort money out of you -  Remember that -    Your authorization would absolve the bank from any and all liability, leaving you holding the bag -  Never give them authorization for anything - for all you know the call is recorded -  ) We have no information on them -Seriously, this has been going on at least since , possibly longer than that based on some accounts - ( years??? Holy crap)  You would think someone would have slipped up by now -  Sadly, they haven't -  We can continue to grow our own intel on them and compile lists of aliases and phone numbers used, along with paraphrases of scripts used in order to educate other victims -  I'm actually putting together a site now in the meantime where I'll host audio files and lists of previous numbers used -  notes -com is great, but no two calls are exactly the same -  It would be nice to have a site dedicated to the scam and how it works - So that's where I am with these calls -  I have suffered no monetary loss, though I have been harassed both at home and at work -  They threaten me with arrest and other "fun" things in order to get me convinced I have to pay them -  My friends and family have been targeted and local and federal law enforcement agencies haven't been able to put a stop to things -  So, it is what it is -  I am out a wireless phone number I had for roughly six years, which is terrible since I was using that line when looking for a new job -  Whenever I'm bored I spoof my number using Google Voice and return the calls -  I've called them the poster children for birth control, etc -  Basically a lot of nasty things that I'm sure the moderators here wouldn't appreciate me repeating - bottom line nothing nice -  I always like to close saying their parents must be real proud knowing their sons weren't man enough to get real jobs -  That usually gets a decent response -  Way I see it - they can't do anything to me - (Despite a threat yesterday that my life would be f'ed up)  They can threaten all they want but my credit is frozen and my bank information has changed -  I've changed the only number they could really access me directly on and I've instructed my employer and family to not answer the calls -  I just call and harass them now when I find a few extra seconds -  What's the worst they can do to me?  Charge me with harassment?  Nope, then they would have to identify themselves -Oh, and don't bother contacting Cashnet USA about the calls -  Their "fraud" department could honestly care less -  Their "investigation" is merely a means of buerocratic CYA -  I would even be surprised at this point if actual law enforcement is involved in any shape, way or form at this time -  There is a good chance that the information these crooks have on us was obtained from Cashnet USA - either from a database leak or from a collector that was once authorized by Cashnet to call on delinquent customers -  The other chance is they have access to Teletrack, and pulled all of our information off of there -notes -com Phone -aspx --- For at least the last four years, possibly longer, a group has been calling former payday loan applicants advising them that they have defrauded a bank and are now being sued for non-payment of a loan -  The callers will claim to be calling on behalf of an attorney's office (name varies), the Dept - of Law and Investigation, ACS, or other similar combinations below:United Legal Processing DivisionMidline MarketingCrime Monitoring ServicesMonetary Crime DivisionU -S - National Bank Attorney General’s Office (usually in California)American Legal ServicesAffidavit Consolidation Services (ACS)You will be threatened with arrest, a costly trial and possibly worse -  In no shape, way or form can you be arrested for non-payment on a consumer debt -  Do not believe these threats, as they are without merit and cannot be carried out in the manner they allege -  Who are they? In the past when pressed by law enforcement for an address, the callers have provided the following information:David Morgan and AssociatesMorgan & AssociatesMorgan Associates-- Northwest th Street Wintergarden, Florida   (Address is likely invalid)The collector's MO matches a once legit collections agency called Ellis Crosby & Associates -  Here are some links on them:www -budhibbs -com collectorpages ellis_crosby_and_associates -htmwww -budhibbs -com collectorpages EllisCrosbyJudgment -pdfThey have been previously fined over - million for various violations -  They have been known to use phone banks in India to make their calls, which more or less coincides with the difficult to understand accent many of us detect when we are contacted -   The last time this group went by any "official" name was back in :Ellis Crosby & Associates Douglas & Morgan Associates Southside Boulevard Suite #Jacksonville Florida Phone:  -- () -(Address is likely invalid)There are NUMEROUS consumer alerts out against this group of individuals:Florida:jacksonville -com tu-online stories met_ -shtmlKansas:  www -consumeraffairs -com news ks_debt_collection -htmlColorado:  www -coloradoattorneygeneral -gov press - - lls_likely_origRhode Island:  www -collectionscreditrisk -com news rho - - -- -htmlWest Virginia:www -wvago -gov internetloanscam -cfmMissouri:On July th, a Public Awareness Bulletin was sent out by Missouri Information Analysis Center -  " -received reports from individuals in Ohio and Illinois reference suspicious telephone calls they received - In both instances, the callers are reporting that a voicemail is received from a man, with a Middle Eastern accent, identifying himself as an officer working with the Financial Crimes Unit -  The message indicates that the reason for the call concerns a loan made by the receiver or someone in the receiver's family - The voicemail requests that a return call be made and a telephone number is provided - When a return call is made, the caller is asked to provide personal identifying information such as their date of birth and social security number -Reports indicate that the calls are frequent and persistent and that they even threaten arrest or legal action if information or money is not provided - It appears that the individuals making these calls may have access to some records connecting individuals and their relatives -  Missouri does not have a Financial Crimes Unit and all indications are that this is a fictitious agency - If you receive a similar phone call, please be advised that it is a scam and please contact your local law enforcement agency or the Missouri Information Analysis Center at -- -"Bottom line:Do not supply the callers with any additional information -  Inform them you have reported them to law enforcement and hang up -  If you haven't already, go ahead and report the calls to local law enforcement, your state's Attorney General and beyond -  Look up the local Secret Service branch's information in your area and get in contact with an agent there -  If you ever applied for a cash advance online, your information is out there -   Possible sources for the breach of your privacy are:* The scammers obtained your information from Teletrack - a reporting agency used by many cash advance lenders to determine their risk lending to you -  The service is able to tell cash advance lenders if you have existing loans with other companies, for example -  Many state laws prohibit borrowers from having more than two cash advances out at the same time - * The scammers created their own fake payday loan application site -  People looking for a cash advance went to the site and applied, thus freely providing the scammers with their information for malicious use at a later time -  * The scammers were able to get into the database(s) of cash advance lenders - probable targets being Sonic Payday and Cashnet USA -   How to protect yourself:* Inform your employer -  You are likely getting calls at home and or at work, so make sure your employer is aware the calls are part of a scam and to not take them seriously -  Advise the callers that they are no longer allowed to call you at work -  If they continue to call, document the date and time of the calls you received -  Save voice mails left if at all possible -  * Change your number(s) -  For some this may not be an option, for others a one-time number change can be done free of charge -Be advised - any references you listed on your payday loan application will be contacted -  Let those people know that this is a scam, and they can disregard - * Use Google Voice -  Google Voice is a great replacement voice mail system for just about any phone number you use -  Messages can be transcribed and voice mail recordings can be saved as mp files -  Pro Tip - call the scammers with a Google Voice number before turning off your old phone numbers -  Make sure when you call you identify yourself so they can start up their script -  At any point after they have your information pulled up just hang up -  They will then start religiously calling your Google Voice number -  At this point, you are free to change your regular phone number(s) and enjoy not having these people ever call you again -  (And laugh at the fact these people are basically talking to a brick wall several times a day)The scammers change their numbers frequently -  Law enforcement used to think it was because the callers ran out of minutes on their prepaid wireless accounts or they were shuttered due to fraud, but now they understand it's simply to evade detection by savvy consumers online -  With the proliferation of VoIP, it's even easier for the crooks to stay a couple of steps ahead of law enforcement -  Below is just a sampling of the + numbers that have been used in recent memory ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------So can they really do anything to you?It's not a simple yes or no answer -  Logic dictates that, if they really wanted to take you for a ride and drain your bank accounts, they already would have -  So, why haven't they?  Authorization -  Why do you think you are being called so much?  Perhaps it is because they like the sound of your voice?  No, they have to have your authorization to take any form of payment from you, period -  The callers know their audience, and that audience is typically a bunch of people that have applied for payday loans in the past -  Most of those people they call couldn't afford an attorney if they wanted one, and are so used to receiving collections calls that so long as they sound like a real collector, they will likely be perceived as one -Furthermore, they don't even really want to talk to your attorney - that just sounds official and scary enough -  A real attorney would take the callers to task and write them off as two-bit con artists -  The callers need you, in writing, to authorize payment against the fictitious debt they claim you owe -  Go ahead, ask them for proof you owe the debt - more commonly known as verification of debt -  See what they say -  A phone authorization carries very little weight, so if they have something signed by you on file, you are done for - and the callers know that -  That authorization is the only thing these callers are doing by the book, and for good reason -  If they just went all willy nilly and made an ACH debit from your checking account, without your written approval, you could in turn report the transaction as fraudulent to your financial institution -  In about - business days, you would get the funds returned to your account -  Then the scammers would be up against a bank and their team of lawyers and investigators -  Bottom line:If you haven't paid the callers a dime, don't -  If you planned on paying them to shut them up, just don't -  Remember - you are not being contacted by a legally licensed, ethically owned and operated collector -  Read up on the FDCPA - www -ftc -gov bcp edu pubs consumer credit cre -pdf - and know your rights -PS--The FBI sent out a Press Release on this scam just last week:Extortion Scam Related to Delinquent Payday Loans Washington, D -C - December ,  FBI National Press Office () -— filed under: Press Release The Internet Crime Complaint Center has received many complaints from victims of payday loan telephone collection scams - Callers claim the victim is delinquent in a payday loan and must repay the loan to avoid legal consequences - The callers purport to be representatives of the FBI, Federal Legislative Department, various law firms, or other legitimate-sounding agencies - They claim to be collecting debts for companies such as United Cash Advance, U -S - Cash Advance, U -S - Cash Net, and other Internet check-cashing services -According to complaints received from the public, the callers have accurate data about victims, including Social Security numbers, dates of birth, addresses, employer information, bank account numbers, and the names and telephone numbers of relatives and friends - How the fraudsters obtained the personal information varies, but in some cases victims have reported they completed online applications for other loans or credit cards before the calls started - The fraudsters relentlessly call the victim’s home, cell phone, and place of employment - They refuse to provide any details about the alleged payday loans and become abusive when questioned - The callers have threatened victims with legal actions, arrests, and, in some cases, physical violence if they do not pay - In many cases, the callers harass victims’ relatives, friends, and employers - Some fraudsters have instructed victims to fax a statement agreeing to pay a certain amount, on a specific date, via a pre-paid Visa card - The statement further declares the victim will never dispute the debt - If you receive these calls, do not follow the caller’s instructions - Rather, you should:Notify your banking institutions - Contact the three major credit bureaus and request an alert be put on your file - Contact your local law enforcement agencies if you feel you are in immediate danger - File a complaint at www -IC -gov - Tips to avoid becoming a victim of this scam:Never give your Social Security number—or personal information of any kind—over the telephone or online unless you initiate the contact - Be suspicious of any e-mail with urgent requests for personal financial information - The e-mail may include upsetting or exciting but false statements to get you to react immediately - Avoid filling out forms in e-mail messages that request personal information - Ensure that your browser is up-to-date and security patches have been applied - Check your bank, credit, and debit card statements regularly to make sure that there are no unauthorized transactions - If anything looks suspicious, contact your bank and all card issuers - When you contact companies, use numbers provided on the back of cards or statements www -fbi -gov news pressrel press-releases paydayloanscam_notes -com Phone -aspx ---
