Hubby has been receiving some harassing phone calls at work and on his cell phone about an apparent online payday loan for $300 from Cash Advance USA.
The "Legal Department" has been calling his job and yelling and cursing at him, his coworkers, his supervisor, and his store director!!
I talked to a representative today and they have Hubby's SSN, bank account number, our address, his employer's information and they say we received $300 in January and have not paid it back. They want us to pay $789.00 in order to make it all stop – or – they have an affidavit ready to file with our county court regarding financial fraud or something like that!!
Here's the deal: Hubby did not have a checking account in January, we did NOT receive $300 from anyone online, since his checking account opened in May he has NOT received any deposits for $300, and we have no idea what they are talking about!!
Now, we have taken out payday loans in the past and we currently have one through a walk-in company here in town so Hubby called them to find out if they are the ones calling. They are NOT!!
I started researching online and Cash Advance USA is being used by a group of people claiming to be a Legal Department and harassing people for money they don't owe. I have read all the complaints and they are exactly what we are experiencing, only different phone numbers each time.
So…what do we do???!!! The calls are scary and we know they do not have any clout behind them – BUT – they are calling Hubby at work – A LOT!!!!
Hubby has called our local police and they have an open case now, but we haven't heard back from the detective…so now what??!!
