They had me to pay $585 to get a loan for $5,000.They calls me everyday all day.The last time I talked to them I said you will be hearing from a lawyer.     They have tried to call me back but I won't answer.I just won't my money back and for them to stop calling my phone.      They also told me I need to pay $95 if I won't to cancel the order.I still have all the moneypak cards they had me to put the money on.      I just won't to say thanks for helping the people that need it.I hope yall catch those low life that are taking advantage of hard working people.

I received this email, saying that i owe this money to this company and i know i dont because i didnt accept the loan, i decided not to accept there offer. i was skeptical about them. i also had my drivers licence and social security stolen awhile back. I will not pay for nothing that i didnt do. they say that they have been trying to reach me and i havent received any calls or emails, until i got this email.

An individual named "Christopher Johnson" (thick Indian accent) from Advance America contacted me via text message to inform me that I had been approved for an online payday loan. He needed me to "hurry fast" to the nearest Walmart to put a down payment of $135.00 on a money gram to send to a woman named Vickie Roy, located in Riverside, CA, and that the secret code word was "blue". This was to "confirm" I could make my monthly payments to the loan I applied for. I thought this request seemed odd, so I didn't do this; instead, I called them back the following day to ask whom to send the $135.00 to again. This time, a "Jason Cooper" (also with a thick Indian accent) answered the phone, telling me to send the money to a "Robbie Roy", located in Toms River, NJ. I knew then that this was a scam, and did my research online, thankfully. However, after seeing numerous reports of the same types of situations I just encountered, I felt this had to be reported. Americans do not need to be victimized by online loan scams or any type of scam involving money, etc. Especially considering these individuals are most likely from the Middle East, posing as American loan officers. Let's stop them now!

I was contacted by ADVANCE AMERICAvia email telling me I was approved for a loan up to $5000. There was a phone number provided so I called and was told I could get $2000 in less than an hour all I had to do was show that I had $120 to prove I could afford monthly payments. He told me to go to the Kangaroo Express and get a Vanilla Reload card and to give him the pin number. After doing so he then told me they needed an insurance fee of $157 and to once again get the Vanilla Reload card and give him the pin. So I did that and then he told me they had to do it via Western Union and that required a $200 fee. I told them I didn't have that and he insisted I borrow it since I would be able to pay it right back. Like an idiot I done it and was assured within 10 minutes I'd be able to retrieve my money. Well after waiting nearly an hour I called back and he said I needed to pay a fee of $357 because the FDIC needed a tax payment or something. That struck me as odd and I immediately realized what was happening. I demanded the loan be cancelled and I wanted a refund. I was transferred over to MARK SMITH and he tried to convince me to pay the $357 fee. I told him I refused to do so and I was suspicious about this being a scam. He became upset and started telling me he could sue me for calling his 'legitimate business' a scam. When I asked for the address of the place he questioned why I needed it and when I asked what county his business was in HE COULDN'T EVEN TELL ME! He was lying his butt off! He knew he was busted and refused to help me in any way. I was told I would be refunded in 45 days and I insisted I be refunded immediately and he refused. I fell for this scam because I am a single mother desperate to catch up on bills and by my 4 year old daughter Christmas presents. How disgusting can a person be? Needless to say I don't know how I will pay my bills now because they took all I had.

My husband applied for a Personal loan from Advance America. They wanted money upfront, after saying there was none. We said no & hung up. The phone # is a MagicJack phone. No name of a Company in the message.

They wanted an insurance amount paid for a financial check back ground check & hung up. Robin Miller called back twice.

My fiance and I got a call from and Indian man stating that we got approved for a loan of $4000. But in order to obtain it we have to show that we can make a monthly payment of $250. He instructed us to buy a moneypak and we call with the code. We did so. Then we had to make a payment of $444 for the lenders to release the funds and that we'll get $4250 back. Since we didn't have the $444.00 my fiance and I borrewed money from families and friends several times to get the process right. to make a long story short, we paid them a total of $2070.00. Theey said that we would get refunded back all the money that we send to them in the moneypak plus our loan. So a total of $6070.00. I can get my money back unless I put a cancel it and the cancellation fee is $298.00. HELP!!!

My family and I are about to lose our home! This Indian man callled and stated that my fiance was approved for a $4000 loan. We had to buy a moneypak and put $250 and we'll get it back we we get our loan. That $250 was to indicate that we'll be able to make a monthly payment of $250.

To make a long story short, We paid a total of $2070.00. I feel stupid for even falling for it. This man said that we'll be refunded and that our total refund will be $6070.00. I'm in the process right not, he said that I need to make a late payment fee of $399.98 and I'd be able to gett all my money back.

This company Advance America Loans sends you a letter that you are approved for a loan to call them, then they tell you to go and get a green dot card and put money on it because your credit is bad. when you do they want you to add more and more money to the card. This is truly a SCAM

This losn compant contacted me by email with threats stating that I had an account with them and it seems that I have ignored all our

efforts to contact you in order to resolve your debt with Advance Anerica Cash Services. At this point you have made your intentions clear and leave us

no choice but to protect our interest in this matter.

the lender is filling these charges against you: violation of federal banking regulation, collateral check fraud, theft by deception

lawsuit of $3896.47 the loan amount is $946.74

I have never ever done any business at all with this company so I don't know what needs to be done about them. But it is real scary getting these

emails. Thanks you!

I received an email with my husband's social and our current address stating that we were being tried in Federal court tomorrow, and he was giving us a heads up. The email address was "off" but I called anyways to see what was up. "Steve Matthews" stated that he was an attorney who worked for Morgan Lewis & Associates, and unless I wanted to go to court and be sued and lose, I basically needed to settle out of court with him. He said that he was going to "call off" the sheriffs as I waited on hold, which took about 3 minutes, and when he got back on the phone he gave me a number to write down. When I asked him what it was for, he acted like he didn't hear the question and proceeded to tell me that unless I paid $780 I would be sued. He wanted me to go to Walgreens and purchase a Greendot Value Money card, put the money on that card and call him with the 17 digits on the back. He asked me if I had any questions or concerns and I told him that I did not see his name on the website of the Firm he claimed he worked for, so that was a major concern. My thing is, at least do your homework. He proceeded to tell me that I could be assured that he this was a legitimate case and he would call me back at or around 3pm. When he calls back, I'll have some choice words for him but if something sounds off, it usually is.

Got Me!

These low lifes got me too.

I was told that I could get a $2000.00 loan but first I needed a $200.00 security deposit by way of a green dot card.

After I aquired the deposit they tell me my credit score was too low and I would need another $ 200.00,all of which I

would get back when the loan went through. After the 2nd $200.00 they tell me I need another $200.00 to process te loan.

At each step I am asking why all this wasn't told to me in the beginning and they assured me that this is the last fee requred.

I have tried to get them to cancel the transaction but they claim that it is already in the system.

I'm sure there is no recource but I will try my best to get these people out of business.

This was my 3rd Contract with Advance America. I arrived a day early to pay off my pay-day loan and to re-borrow the funds.

After I settled the loan I was informed that I could not designate my legal capacity as the "Beneficiary" on my Check. My Check is a security agreement ONLY IF I fail to pay.

I explained that I am the Beneficiary on the account as the account is solely for my Social Security payment.

I was informed that "the Auditor" had made a determination that I could not Notice my cacpacity on the check.

I explained that they had taken my check 3 times before and that there was not problem. After being refused I said I would go get a bank check and return. They refused to allow me to use a bank check! I gave them my Debit Card for a Draft and they refused my Debit Card.

This is the treatement from a company that charges Userious Interest rates of 202.93% per year!

I told the clerk to keep my receipt! She said she would mail it to me and now I am filing CHARGES for:

requiring me to file false and misleading statements on my document (my check) and mail fraud as well as usury!
