I have been getting calls from different men with very strong indian accents, they say they are from some legal department and that there is a lawsuit against me with some very serious charges, such as theft fraud, and so on and that I could be facing jailtime. these people dont want to give any info you ask them, they tell you a case number and that they want to help you. they then tell you that you have a certain amount of time to give them a certain amount of money either by money gram or credit card. when I asked who was filing the charges they said cashnet. then they gave me a number for cash net that was bogus! they then tell you to pay a smaller amount and that it is from a payday loan that you recieved. I didnt give them any money and noone else should either! they will not give you proof of the charges. they told me that after I pay the would provide me with verification.I have done research on this and even called the police! they give me names such as Andy Taylor, Robin Williams, Arnold Whatson, and they even called my sister and said the name was Jimmy Carter. report this crime and dont give any info. Has anyone else recieved calls from these people? one tim they said they were from united paralegal...

its funny because i have been getting those annoying calls of the guy with the heavy indian accent tellling me i am going to jail because of fraud. But before I confirmed all the information which was mines, I asked when this loan was giving because the name didn't sound familiar and if I did have that loan ,how ironic that they didn't take it out of my bank account. The response was because they change their policy. Thats when i realized it was all bulls**t. Plus he wouldn't tell me when the loan was given. That has been at least 2 months ago and they call and call and I just hang up on them. Now this weekend my daughter who has not been able to get a payday loan because she has no direct deposit, recieved the same call that she has fraud and would go to jail if she doesn't pay 650.00 for a loan of 475.00. They even gave her a case number, but i told her tell him to take you to court because you can prove that you do't qualify and the account they are talking about has been closed for a year. I told her tel them you will see them in court.

With PDL's, that I have dealt with, you need a chacking account to have the 'loan' direct deposited. Obviously..........if you don't HAVE a bank account you can't receive any money!! ALOT of PDL's are scams. I sometimes get calls from places I've never heard of,..and these places ask for me. They want me to "verify my information with them." If I had dealt with them before (which I didn't..) they should already have my info. Don't fall for the scams they try and produce!!!!!!!!

what if they have all the personal info. ss#, address, home phone, work phone, all that?? i stupidly thought i could apply for this loan online, i guess you could call me an ameture. but i was desparate. now i have these guys callin me none stop, and they are now calling my work. what do i do?! they claim to be officers, and they claim they can have local police come to your work and arrest you. ive had this full time job for 3 years now, i cant afford to lose it. can someone tell me what to do before i cuss these people out on the phone?! they have my address and what not, so im scared...what do i do?...

i just realized, i may not have listened as closely as i should have, but they may have some of my personal info wrong. hopefully

The only way I got them to stop was telling them that I needed their info to give to JAG, us military lawyers and they stopped calling. My husband is in the military and thank god for sites like these or we would of been out lots of money. What a nightmare!

I just got a call form 610-990-7855, claiming I owed money from a pay day loan. He had a thick indian accent also. But he said he was calling from the Federal Trade Commission. What a joke. Its a holiday and the Trade Commission is not open. I then called back using a male voice and told him that the person he was calling no longer has this number. I have not heard from them since.
