I got a very rude call from Andy- first on my cell and then office direct number (which was only issued in the last two weeks). He was asking for my attorney on record. He proceeded to say the same things- that I had received a payday loan and never paid it back in . Then said that if I paid $ then this would all go away and I would get a letter that this would not go on my record. Or I would be served at me office.
I also called by bank to warn them that this might come up
I started to ask questions, and he again cut me off and told me that he could only tell me that the funds were due January 30th, which is a Saturday and not a payday for me- lie. At the same time I looked up my account- there was no deposit from any such company- lie. I then asked where he got my info from; he said my application- my direct number would not have been on an application from es, or call my office. The worst was that he said that this company had been trying to email me for months- 30 times- on a closed email- lie. And that they had called me yesterday- lie. When I asked why I could hear things in the background, he proceeded to say that he worked for a law firm and this is what they do.
They said that I took a loan out for $700 and they wanted my attorney’s name and number
Sounded like a call center to me. However, he had my bank account information, and said that at any time he could just take the money himself. I asked for the website of the place I did the application, he said there were too many to tell. I asked for him to email it to me, he said I would get all the information I needed at court or after I paid. At this point I looked the company name up and found all of the similar stories and realized that I had been scammed. Thank god I did not give him any money. Does anyone have a response as to what happened after? Did they get a summons at work?
I received a call today () at work from a lady that said her name was Jennifer **. She had a middle eastern accent. I told her that I couldn’t understand her. So, she put me on with a supervisor which I really couldn’t understand either. I told him that I was not going to verify anything until he sends me documentation that I am responsible for this loan. Of course, he said that he couldn’t do that until I paid them something first. He also said that he couldn’t send me any documentation because it was still in pending status. I never took a loan out with these people and I have the bank statements to prove it.
Finally, he left a voicemail today while I was at work saying that if I did not contact him, that legal action would be taken against my home and workplace. I contacted him back and after speaking to two people, who sounded like exactly the same person, I was told that an affidavit was issued on me by a company called either Instacash or Instant Cash and that I had taken out a loan (of which he could and would not tell me when) with them in the amount of $900, and that it had been deposited into my account, after which the company had apparently tried to take it back out of my account and could not. Therefore, I was going to be charged with Criminal Fraud and Internet Fraud.
