My original call came from 202-905-0425 claiming that I have been approved for a federal grant that doesn't need repaying for $9,500. His name is James Parker (couldn't understand the accent). He said he was real and legit and his employee number is 1843G. I asked what was required and he said to just verify my info and no fees. He then said that I will have my $9,500 as soon as I speak with the Federal Reserve Bank Officer who will give me a ten digit tracking number. He told me to call 209-789-5800 and dial extension 105. So I did. A man answered and said, "Hello?" I then told him that I was told to call this number. He then said said, oh yeah, (another accented voice...poor English). He told me that he will issue the ten digit tracking number to have $9,500 deposited in my account as soon as I complete the registration process. I asked what that was and he told me. I had to get a greendot moneypak card and load it with $125 to verify. I said, "Verify what?" He said, "To verify that the money is going to the right person." I asked "How does buying a greendot card verify that I am who I say I am?" He said it is all part of the registration process. I said, "I was told there was no fee." He told me that it is not a fee. I just simply load the moneypak card with $125, read the numbers on the back. He just wants to verify that it's there but not use it. I could use the card and add it back to my accounts anytime. I asked, "What's the point of even getting the moneypak card. It's not a loan. I'm not repaying anything." He said that I'm getting $9,500 and it will be deposited the moment I read the numbers on the back and that $125 is little compared to that. Well long story short I hung up. I had read other horror stories about people who fell victim to this scam. I was looking up the number online while I was talking to them. The first number was from someone's cell phone and the this number had too many complaints for me to risk spending $125.
Same situation. Received a call from America cash advance . They need $200 show money via green dot money pak. And then they will give you a loan amounting to $2000 they say. Don't believe them. Good thing I didn't listen to them. Scammers!!!!
This company claims to be a loan company California, offering to get you better interest. They are listed as Scammers.
I also got scammed from these people from India or Pakestan or wherever they're from. I can't believe how nasty these people are. I also gave them money with the promise of getting a large loan. It messed up my checking acct. which meant i had to borrow money to get caught up for the month of September. I am still having problems from this. when I finally got a hold of them after this, I called them every name in the book, and then some. I told them i reported them to the authorities and my lawyer. And big surprise... they don't answer the phone..... They claim to be from The Lending Club, which is actually a real company that I spoke too, and they have lawsuits against them... and I hope they get screwed as bad as us. Not all pay day loans are bad. I've had great success with a few of them who were very nice to deal with..Oh!!! did I mention they are from America, and I can understand what they are saying. becareful out there......
i did the same thing y'all but i give up 700$ thinking i was going to get 4000$ please dont do this fake scam im so mad at myself

I received same call as Natalie. Was told to got green dot card and load with 200.00. Proof to show bank we have funds. First off if I was trying to borrow money do they think I had 200.00???? I told the guy that these other countries take us Americans to be stupid. Dumb jerks!
This so say Michael King from Cash Advance America keeps calling offering a loan

Call him back to give him the card info. What a dumb piece of scam!! I never
Fall for that trick. Look out people these foreign think they got us!!
