Global Collection Agency

Who buys debt pennies on the dollar! The nature of the Payday loan industry is that it anticipates that the borrower will have a certain amount of money in a particular account on a particular day. Second I had a good friend that is a California attorney he said nothing came up in the state of California. Again I laughed and said "okay see you there". She disconnected the call.

75 Global Collection Agency Consumer Reviews and Complaints

I told her to send me to court because I have my letter and receipts. How can a company threaten anyone like this? Some lady left me a message regarding my niece being taken to court because she listed my address. They try to call unknown but leave a message which traces back to them. The number they call from is These people seriously need to get a life. The company is based in Canada with satellite offices in the United States. I checked the county court records just in case and nothing in regard to a court case.

I also called my local police department. The only thing that can be done is to get an attorney. Do not give these people any personal information. They are a very large scam. They are thieves of the worst kind. They have already changed their name once, that I know of. We as the American public can do something about this. For those of you who already gave them information and money I am so sorry. So not only did this Beth person call my work cell phone and left a voicemail about me having an open case with her, and that it's for the county of Los Angeles, the Phone number she left was an number that I traced back to a Dance studio in North Carolina Hello Beth, that's on the opposite coast.

So right away I was like this lady really think I'm going to call her and give her my money? She's a scam artist! Who buys debt pennies on the dollar!

She threatened to get a hold of my supervisor as well, last time I checked it's against the law for a debt collector to call the place of employment. They called from a local number and asked if I was the guardian or parent to my child.

She then proceeded to confirm our address, in which I declined giving to her until she told me what she was calling about. She said it was a personal business matter and that she needed to verify the address before sharing any information with me. When I continued to refuse to give her my mailing address, she hung up. For more information about reviews on ConsumerAffairs.

This lady is a scam artist. She calls from different numbers on a weekly basis. I have reported this company to my local state government as well as the federal trade commission. This is a SCAM. First Beth calls and tells you where she is from and states that she is calling to collect a debt.

You have 24 hours to call her back or she will send an arrest warrant for your home or workplace. She leaves a faulty case number. The FTC warns about scammers like this out there they are using "scare tactics. First debt collectors cannot issue arrest warrants it's against the law.

Second I had a good friend that is a California attorney he said nothing came up in the state of California. Please be aware people these scammers have no soul and will not stop at anything to get as much money as they can.

You have the right to request written validation of the debt. If they send you validation that can be used in court as evidence against them. Received a call from a 'Beth' from Global Services who left a message to call Talked to an 'Amber' about a payday loan I didn't take out with a company who is known for scamming ACE Cash Services is one of the names they use.

I've received so many harassing calls and emails concerning this fictitious loan from different 'debt collectors' that I hired a company that specifically deals with this kind of illegal activity. I asked 'Amber' to provide the declaration of debt as proof. She said she will see if she can send this document. This unknown number called me numerous times and eventually left a voicemail. I've never had TD Bank so that's not possible. She also used my address from when I was 20 years old 8 years ago.

I had a gut feeling something was up so I told her I would call her back later in the week to set something up. Please be aware of this company. They are definitely scammers. Don't get fooled like I almost did! They told his brother that if he didn't pay they would start garnishing my husband's pay check. We don't even have his brother number so how the hell did they get it??

These people are con artist and I wouldn't trust them whatsoever. I see now that they're huge scammers by what everyone is saying. While on the phone today I received a call from a number I didn't recognize so I let it go to voicemail.

I listened to it and it sounded suspicious so I ignored it. Minutes later they call back which is actually not allowed once they leave a message but whatever. Hmmm I have already dealt with this type of call a few months back that was a scam so I was ready. I asked why this is not on my credit report 4 years later?

I then asked where this debt was from? She said she'd need to transfer me I said no it actually didn't matter as I had never taken out a payday loan. Again she insisted I take care of it or I'd be taken to court and pay 5x the amount.

Again I laughed and said "okay see you there". She disconnected the call. I got online after to see about this company and was inspired to call back. This time I spoke with a man. He told me the loan was from somewhere which could mean that I got it these places quickly names things. He rattled off a bunch of my family's name that supposedly I had added as references to this loan however one small glitch one of the names listed was my sister and somehow back in , before she even met her husband I knew what her married name would be.

I brought this to the guy's attention and he said "that's not what I said, we did a search and these are potentially related people that could locate you as we could not".

Again stating the obvious, I said "you're talking to me now". I told him I knew it was a scam and how disgusting to take advantage of people like this, told him the internet was full of reviews about this company and he said "only people who owe money have something to complain about".

He asked how we could clear this up today. I told him I wouldn't be and he then threatened me with this legal action. That I better get a good attorney, once more I said "bring it on".

He then hung up. Any real debt I've ever had, they gave me all the details. They didn't have to prove it was me by the address, family, last That right there should cause alarm This company has called multiple times, and they leave a recorded message, giving you a phone number and a case number. So, I call them back. They have the last four of my social and my address. They said "well you either had it in your bank account, or a prepaid card.

I was online trying to get a payday loan, but I've never gotten one. So I asked for paperwork, they said they sent it, and no, I got nothing. They couldn't tell me who it was from, when it was gotten, or anything. Besides, if I had gotten a payday loan, wouldn't it be on my credit report? I've got nothing like that on it. I think these people try to scare you, telling you that you'll be sued or worse if you don't pay them.

I do believe this is a scam! Received several messages from these people stating I owed money on an old payday loan. Request a mailing address so you can send a cease-and-desist letter. Also request proof that the collector has paperwork on your debt. Chances are, you won't receive such proof, nor will you be provided a mailing address. Keep records on all this.

If you are sued by these guys, the judge will not look kindly on their behavior. If you have a consumer question, email me at asklaz latimes. An aggressive lawyer, like Matthew McConaughey in "The Lincoln Lawyer," might think he has the upper hand in debt collection, but you have rights. But it does mean you can no longer be sued for it. Started by helpless in PA , July 14, Due to Payday loans, I screwed my life up.

I have 3 that have just rolled over, can't pay anymore. What can they do to me in PA, legally? Can they sue for bad checks? One is Cashnet USA, online lender. PA is suing Advance America. I defaulted on all three. What steps can I take to protect myself.

Thanks to corporate mergers and outsourcing, my company payroll moved, and my direct deposit to new checking account failed. Waiting on paper check, but just can't afford to pay these without jeopardizing mortgage. Filed complaints with PA dept of banking. The PA dept of banking not totally consistant in answering if these companies fall under consumer discount companies, which then have usuary laws.

It's mostly specific to payday loan stores. What I did with my payday loan was do up a nice repayment letter and mailed them a payment, smaller than the regular payment, and told them I would be making regular payments till the account was paid in full.

Here in WI it is illegal to continue charging their outrageous rates unless you sign a new contract. Actually, in most states you can be sued for post-dated checks Also, they usually can't get treble damages as they knew you didn't have sufficient funds when they accepted the check. Payday loans are a nasty cycle that spirals you downward.

In FL, they try to protect consumers Talk about predatory lending No one that touches them comes through unscathed. I know the feeling and don't judge. But I hope that you despise these situations enough now to take major steps to ensure you won't have to do this for the rest of your life. Not everyone successful was born with a silver spoon I was having a similar difficulty and I sending them debt valid ltr..

Believe it or not, my credit union just started offering payday loans.
