payday loans calling my job from a sex line? Help!

member profile picture

I was approached by security at my job yesterday, was asked if I was in any sort of trouble in my personal life,if anybody was stalking me or threatening me.

Somebody has been calling me at my job, asking for me under my maiden name.. the caller id shows up as some sort of sex line,security says that when he called the number that it was indeed a sex line.

I'm thinking this is a payday loan company, I closed my bank accounts a few years ago because I'd repaid thousands of dollars in interest with no end in site.

I have no idea what to do, what to tell security, I tried to explain a bit about the payday loan stuff but he looked at me like yeah right,sure lady. People at work are freaking out over this.

has anybody else had this problem? I'm in MA




Have you called the number back?

If it is truly a sex line, have you or someone in your home ever used or worked for a sex line?

I have never been employed by or used a sex line.This place is calling my job.Security informed me that they called the number showing up on caller id and it is indeed a sex line.

These people call in late afternoon,after I've left for the day so I haven't been able to speak to anyone directly myself.

This has got to be payday loan related,those are the only people who had my work number.

chances are they are spoofing the callier id.that means they mask there true number with a different one or the old unknown name unknown number.it is a common trick with pdl's especially illegal ones.ask the security to get a number from them.a real number.

My company is very PC, I'm wondering if it wouldn't be better to just allow whichever employee answers the phone to give the caller my cell phone number? That way I can find out which company this is,then go from there?

When I had my original problems, I had to go to my manager and confide in him what was going on, he was quite supportive particularly when some company called him and informed him that US marshalls were coming to arrest me..on a $250 loan that they'd been paid $750 in interest on.

can you recall any details of this pdl.how much borrowed?how much paid back?i would try to get the number from them first.
if you are cool with them having your cell go ahead.just make sure you aren't charged for incoming calls,cause they will call that number.

You know what? This is off the wall, but has anyone thought to call the sex line to tell them that these scumbags are using their number like this? Just a thought...also, maybe the sex line is a sideline for the PDL business? I wouldn't be surprised,frankly--and it would be interesting to find out.

I'm not sure it's a pdl . . . . . If it was, their intent would be to get money out of you, and having a phone number that they can't be reached at doesn't do them any good.
