Sub: illegal internet payday loans in california
Tue, 08/02/2011 14:58

i took out an internet payday loan with payday-loan-yes. are they legal in california? i got 2 messages saying that i have commited check fraud and that they are trying to serve a summons to appear in court but cannot reach me and may go to my place of employment. they told me to call 877-231-2175. i called and i believe that they are the bam group? anyway they said they were a legal firm and that if i did not pay 800.00 something plus legal fees i would go to court. i told them i would pay the original loan amt of 350.00 and nothing more but it would have to be on my payday. they would not accept and said i would go to court that it was a civil case. can they do this. i live in california and where is payday-loan-yes located?

Sub: #2 I as well am receiving calls at all hours, threatening me with jTue, 02/08/2011 - 14:52



I as well am receiving calls at all hours, threatening me with jail. The caller states that they are an attorney that is filing charges with the district attorney's office for check fraud. They said that I took out several loans with their company online, the money was deposited and that they were unable to collect from my account because I closed it. I did close my account. I did apply for a loan but was denied. There were several attempts on my acct. to withdraw money and it caused my acct. to be overdrawn almost $400. The bank officer suggested that I close my acct. and re-established a new one. I just got an email from them stating it was from the "USA Attorney's Office" that they were going to be sending my case file for prosecution that that it would cost me "$10,000. and long period of jail time". Has anyone gone to jail over jail time? I lived in California when this began some 5yrs. ago. Now I live in Arizona.

I told a similar caller "Mark" that I had read all about the scams with his company online and that the US Attorney General's office has been notified and that I would like his name for the report. He hung up, have not received any calls since.

A-holes.

I asked him for a Letter of Collection, he became irate, said no and that if I didn't fax the letter, he'd see me in court. Does this sound right?

The same thing happen to me except I did send them a letter and money but soon after I realized it was a scam and closed my account and filed a fraud claim. I got my money back and now they are calling again. It is a man with a Indian accent he has used names like Sam -Mark- Adam He called from various number and all of them have complaints so please be aware and just ignore them or play with them like my husband does and argues with them and tells them his lawyer said to provide a letter stating we owe this loan and inlcude the loan company name he usually backs off after cursing my husband out.

NO!!! He is full of crap! You would need to have received a summons before any appearance before a judge. Stick to your guns, tell him to send a dunning letter and proof you owe the debt, then MAYBE you'll talk. Until then, tell him to piss up a rope (or something to that effect lol).
