PDL Recovery Group LLC

Has anyone ever heard of PDL Recovery Group LLC? I received a call from them saying that they represent VIP Cash. I did an application with VIP but when it came to them depositing the money, they put it in an old account that was charged off almost 2 years ago. VIP claimed that I did not give them my new info but I did because I had to fax them a copy of my bank statement. I even called them back to make sure that they got the fax. I told them that since I did not get the money good luck on getting it back. Where do I stand with this? Everything was done totally over the phone. No internet site.

Thanks for the website to the FTC. I just filed a complaint as everyone who reads about these scammers should do. I don't think PDRL Group really is in Aurora Illinois. But they are running a big scam. Again thanks for the website to the FTC.

I'm in the same situation, I checked on the three credit companies and they said a pdl loan does not go on your credit report, they also said that a scam with the same number ending in 5871 has been going on for some time.

I keep getting harassed by this company. Again they threatened to garnish my wages and suspend my license. I told her they could not suspend my license, only the DMV could. She then said "well you must be in a state where they can only garnish your wages." And all along I got told that the loan amount and the settlement amount was $300. I did request for something in writing so I could verify, and the amount on the paperwork said the amount was $1200, but the settlement was only $300. Hmmm...suspicious. And I do not have any outstanding loans for $300, they have all been paid off. And when I pushed back yesterday and said I wanted something in writing she was very rude, kept talking over me. I finally told her to stop so I could talk. She threatened me and said I would have to get an attorney and take this to court. I told her this was not a court matter. The more "facts" I threw at her, the more hostile she got. Like I said, I actually did get something in writing, but the original loan company is not on the paperwork. I replied to the email she sent to me and asked for the original company so I could verify that this was legitimate. I have not received a response to my email, and I doubt I will.

And ok, this was the kicker. They are a LLC company, but yet their email address was a Yahoo email address.

I refuse to pay them. It's obviously a scam. If everyone reported them, they hopefully will be shut down.


Sub: #5 I was wondering the same thing....

I received the same type of phone call - they will garnish my wages, suspend my license, and that I needed to settle my amount as soon as possible. I have been in communication with a Miss Weber. They can not take a check, the only thing they will take is a debit card, maybe a credit card too, but I'm not sure if they take a credit card. I called again this morning and both of the numbers I was given 877-601-5871 and 630-486-1900 are no longer in service. Either they have been shut down since I called yesterday, or they are having phone problems, or they forgot to pay their phone bill. Either way, that's a huge red flag. I was not going to pay until I received verification that this was legit. I do have outstanding payday loans, but until I know exactly which one, the originating loan company, etc. I am not going to pay.

I received a call from them stating that they received paper work to start wage garnishment. I asked the man for what company and he gave so let's just pick one answer and named off several payday loan companies but could not narrow it down to one. But, he sure got the amount. LOL. After I let him finish I gave him my attorney's name and my Chapter 13 filing number and he said ok, I guess we have to send it back to them. Mighty funny he knew who them was then but could not tell me who them was.:D

I received a call from these people, but having dealt with a similar group in the past, I checked here first, glad I did, I was not too panicked from having dealt with this before. No one can garnish your wages or suspend your drivers license without a hearing and a judge. Also, the joke is on them because I don't have an employer. HAHA

I received a phone call today at work. She said she was from PDLR. She then went on to say that I took out a payday loan, she even knew my bank. I did take one out but that acct was paid in full. she stated they were mediators and if I did not make arragements to pay it off they were going to suspend my drivers license and they were also going to start an immediate 25% wage qarnishment. When I asked what the company was she could not give me one. But she would send them a letter saying I was disputing the loan. I let her know I have all my paperwork and they can go ahead and take me to court. I then called the company where I had the original loan, and they listed there number as being a scam. Thank goodness I did not verify my information with them. Do not talk to these people and do not verify any information with them.
