I had not been and had gotten no other notices about this. In my pure panic I didn't ask all the questions I should have the first time around. I got on the phone and started calling courthouses here in Colorado Springs to try and find out when the court date was.
Come to find there were no court dates. Was taking the court date seriously because I had missed a court date here for a traffic case and they arrested me and I spent the say in jail. Not a fun day. I started to ask the questions I should have asked the first time around. I looked back through my papers and that was not the company I had gone through.
So then I asked, ok, do you have a case number and a court date? He said, yes, you are to appear in court today at 5: I said, wow, ok, where at. He replied San Francisco court. I was like, ok, how does this make sense, you said that the case has been filed in my local state, and I've received no communications about this prior to today and you're telling me you don't have a case number and that I have to appear in San Francisco today.

I got a message that I need to call this number and it was very time sensitive. I call the number and the first thing the guy says in an arabic accent "Is do you have an attorney?
He tells me I will be arrested tomorrow at work because I have an arrest warrant for not paying back 4 payday loans. I live in Texas and he said I will be taken to California to be sued. He then wanted me to stay on the phone with him and go buy prepaid VISA cards to make the payment, no other means of payment was acceptable. I convinced him that I need to get off the phone and go to the store because I was on a land line. I checked all the phone numbers provided by this person and all come back no name attached to the number.
At this point I realize this is a scam. I don't call him back so he calls my work and starts yelling at me for not calling him back. That was the end of that call he immediately hung up.

Monday, November 14, Someone called my job and told them that there was a legal matter that could result in me losing my job. In order to prevent legal action, I would have to get a green dot pre-paid card and fax them an apology letter and promise to pay. I actually got scared and tried to make a payment but got suspicious when they couldnt give me an account number or reference number.
When I began to question them, they got very nasty and told me that they would send me a subpena and send it to my job to try to scare me into paying. I was able to make sure that they didnt get any payment. They contacted me today. While on the phone I got online to check my acct.
I had checked into some, but never followed thru. When I told him that he said in his accent that he would have to call me back. I said I would stay on the line. He said he was going to lunch and that he would call me later. I then said I wanted to speak to his manager. He stated he did not have one, I said so you answer to know one?? I asked for the phone number and proof in writing for this supposed loan.
He said since it was done online, it was not needed. I then asked for Cash Advances phone he said I would have to go on their website and get it. I tried to get their , but on the website you can only email, which I did back to back about 5 times and also sent one regular. To my suprise I got a call from an Annette the company name is now Cash advance now They are aware of this scam. She verified I had no loan on file and confirmed that it was a scam!!
She gave me her of which I called back to verify was a good which it was.

He says they will contact my work and I will be fired within 2 days and within 3 days I will be served papers to be in court in California. Everytime I tried to explain to the man that I didn't have an account with them, nor did I apply for a loan with them, he was very rude.
He read me my work phone number. I hung up on them several times. A few minutes later, I get a call that shows as my work phone number on the caller id. I answer the phone and it was the same man that said Is this your work number.
I hung up again. I get several of these calls everyday. I have learned that it does no good to argue with them and when I told them I know it is a scam, that did no good either. Now I just let my calls go to voice mail when I know it is them.
I don't know what else to do. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. By the way, this guy claims he works for the law firm representing the company that is suing me. He has a really strong accent, as do all of the people you hear talking in the background.

He said there are some charges being filed against me. I asked for what. He said he is going to read the affidavit and told me not to interrupt him.
He had an accent too. First of all my US Bank account is just 1 month old I asked for his name and told him I was going to report him. He said he is going to have the state of California police and my police to come to my job and pick me up in 24 hours then he hung up in my face.
