Remember, the United States government will never send warrants or legal notices via email messages. They would be served in person by a U.S. Marshal or other law enforcement officer. Anyone receiving a fake arrest warrant should contact the FBI or the district U.S. Marshals Office. If there is any question regarding the authenticity of a warrant, contact your district clerk of court.

CREDITOR - CASH ADVANCE AMERICA LOANS.
This is in reference to your Case File ACS-20176/TC41/9522 with CASH ADVANCE AMERICA LOANS in order to notify you that after sending several emails we were not able to get hold of you. So the IC3 (Internet Crime Complaint Centre) has decided to mark this case as a flat refusal and press charges against you.
This is regarding your case and charges which are going to pressed under your name are:
(1) VIOLATION OF FEDERAL BANKING REGULATION
(2) COLLATERAL CHECK FRAUD
(3) THEFT BY DECEPTION
I regret to advise that unless payment is received before the end of this week this invoice will be passed over to our debt collection agency/lawyer. This could seriously affect your credit rating so I urge you contact us immediately to make payment or arrange an alternative before this date.
We will be forced to proceed legally against you and once it proceeds the creditor has entire rights to inform your employer and your references regarding this issue and the law suit will be the next step which will be amounting to $26220 and will be totally levied upon you and that would be excluding your attorney charges, pending balance and bail charges . If you take care of this out of court then we will release the clearance certificate from the court and we will make sure that no one will contact you in future .
Please let us know what your intention is by today itself so we can hold the case or else we will submit the paperwork to your local county sheriff department and you will be served by court summons at your door step.
You will receive the document from the court house once the case will be downloaded. We have tried several times to work with you but as we are not getting the same cooperation from you so unfortunately, we have to proceed further with legal actions against your name and SSN in order to dispute this matter into the court house as you have failed to make the payment.
We have the affidavit which states that you were monitored online using your email address in order to silicate funds from the website which is own and operated by the parent company.
For settlement, payment arrangement or any other queries feel free to contact us.
