I too have had this# call me with the same threatening tactics as most of the aforementioned comments..I filed a complaint with the consumer financial protection bureau..the Ohio attorney General as well as the Tennessee attorney General..the tactics they use are against thelaw..they are not allowed to threaten imprisonment which is what they are doing..I highly suggest anyone that reads this and has had this kind of treatment from this# to please do the same..they claim there law firm is called u.r.law firm..Bristol Tennessee and the so called paralegals name that threatened me was nelson martin..please file a report to stop these criminals..
I received numerous calls from 423-758-3355 stating that I owe a debt and that if I don't pay, they will take civil actions against me. I advised them to give me the case number they were filing and I would have my attorney contact them. I stopped receiving calls after that. I checked my work voice messages today and they left the same message. I have a previous employer who handles cases against this type of matter whereas they have filed lawsuits against the unscrupulous debt collectors and won. I am in good standing with the payday loan company I utilize and they are aware of the bogus solicitors trying to extort their clients for money. I will be changing my contact information today. Good luck everyone
THAT IS A SCAM THEY TRYING TO GET MONEY OFF PEOPLE THEY KEEP CALLING ME
Something need to be done about this.At first i fell for it but when i mentioned the wrong payday loan company, sam paylor(fake name) agreed that's when i knew it wasn't right and then i mentioned the right one and he said yeah and tried to play it off. Then i asked him don't you have all my information he said yeah and i asked how much was my loan and he said $497.81. that raised another flag, so i decided to research and then called my loan company. he finally noticed that after all his threat i was asking too many questions and no longer stressed or pissed and was like whn you hang up I'm filing the report and you will be arrested and I told him you will be in jail before me if you are in theU.S. But don't worry when you get a call from them and never pay them anything and contact you lender. Because they will tell you there is nothing your lender can do and try to act like they ate not worried about the money and just want you in jail.
Remember debt is a civil matter not criminal
Debt is not a criminal matter, it is civil. Look at it this way if they had the stones to take you to court they still have to prove they can lawful collect debts in your state, prove they have the right to the money, and back it up with a validation by mail. GEt their address and send them a cerftified letter that you do not want them to call you by phone and validate the so called debt.
Just treat this for the entertainment that it is. Some people will never learn that if they can not prove it by mail then they can go to <blank in the word>. Just report the number to the FTC, your state AG and the CFPB website.
I am so tried of the foreign calling my home and harassing me 423-758-3355 and keeps telling me it is a criminal matter and that i need a lawyer or i will go to jail
I am so tired of this guy calling and threatening me saying he is from a law firm and it is a criminal matter about a loan that i never got.
This guy with broken English keeps on leaving me messages stating that if I don't call back about a loan ...He wishes me good luck with what bad things are gonna happen. I have not taken out any loans these people are trying to scam you!!
# calling me is 423. 758. 3355
I received another call from them today. He said is name was Aaron Roger. I asked numerous time requesting information from him. Unable to give me any. The lawyer office he said was D WILD. He told me hope I would lose my job. I see previous posted on this issue. As any experience calling them and they transfer you or call you back?
I received a call from this number on my personal cell phone and work phone today. Same story as you all about a $788 debt that has not be paid back, and threatening me with police showing up to my work and home. Does anyone know how we can report them to authorities? Has anyone done so already? I too am nervous about them having my personal information.
I received a message on my voice mail this morning from "Justin Smith" who claimed and all I could understand was "attorney on record" I did a reverse phone look up and saw it was TN, did not find an attorney with that name but saw multiple comments that this was a scam. I called back and then he called me back and said he was initiating a case against me. I asked him for what company or any information so that I could have one of my attorneys on record contact him. He became belligerent and said he hoped I had a good bankruptcy attorney and a good criminal attorney. I said you are a scam and he was still yelling when I hung up.
Got a call earlier about a owing money for a loan I never recieved. They called my work and said they warren going to have someone come to my work tomorrow and arrest me. I asked him what exactly is the lawsuit for because I never took any money from anyone. And he just kept saying the same thing over and over. So I just said "yeah okay guy" and he hung. Glad I know it's a scam now. But mad that he called my work. That's going to need to stop.
Got a call from this number and told him if he wont stop i will drive to anderson tn and find him myself. Then he hung up the phone. I told him i know tim white and he is a disability lawyer.
Just got a call from 4237583355 said that they were a law firm and that I was going to be arrested... Wants me to pay 788.17 today or they are coming to get me... I spoke with a manager said the above... Going to call a lawyer tomorrow but I'm worried they have all my information... Everything!

The address he gave me was 900 Anderson st in tennesse somehwere...I asked to speak with his supervisor an he kept coping an asked thither with me then hung up
This establishment has been harrassing me at my job claiming to be a law office. The person claimed his name wax Mark Spencer. They have been calling all day and all times of day. I work in a professional p[lace of business and this is ridiculous.
This # 423-758-3355 has called me 7 times today. Telling me I have 3 counts of fraud and so on. That I'm going to jail if I don't get an attorney by tomorrow. This has happened more than once, just different people and a so called USA cash loans. They said I got money and never paid it back. I've never gotten a loan from any online. And have. The same banking info for months. Scam. They are good at manipulation. They get off by making you feel scared and fearful.
he called treatin to come up to my job to put me in jail please dont fall for this
It's a scam-you're not going to jail, they're just trying to scare you into paying something that is either beyond the SOL (statute of limitations) or isn't your debt at all!
Update** Got off the phone with my original lender, and she stated it's a scam for the number mentioned above and said they have been getting numerous calls lately regarding this. She said they can't take you to jail for this type of debt and illegal what they are doing and to just disregard the calls from the company " American Cash ". Hope this helps ease some peoples tensions, as mine was pretty high momentarily. Cheers!
Got a call earlier from 423-758-3355, saying their from American Cash and have affilliations with 1,000 lenders across the the states apparently. Said if I dont pay I would be going to jail anywhere from 7 to 21 days....going to call my original lender, seeing as I spoke with them 4 days ago regarding to make arrangements on my debt... anyone else can vouch for the validity of this matter?
Got call from them saying if not paid by today that they would pick me up tom. N go to jail
Reported today as a bogus payday loan collector, the kind committing extortion dressed as debt collection.
Consumer debts in America, including payday loans, are a *CIVIL* matter, not criminal! The extortionist threats are empty and the callers' conduct is illegal. As early as possible it's critical to determine if your collector is domestic or yet another South Asian faker. The former you can sue into submission; the latter tend to be out of reach.
