Online users who have received "Speedy Cash Lawsuit or Settlement Offer" email messages like the one below, which claim that they have been given a chance to settle a debt outside of court, should delete the email messages and not follow the instructions in them. This is because the email messages are fraudulent, and are being sent by scammers to trick the recipients into sending them money believing that they will be sued for money owed and their credit history tarnished.

You took the loan from the company SPEEDY CASH which has now gone up to $1210.00. The total pay off balance is $1210.00, however due to bad debt we do have a Settlement offer available for you, if you can come up with the settlement amount of $500.00 by March 5th 2018, this account will be marked as paid in full and you can avoid the legal consequences.
YOU CAN EMAIL US IN ORDER TO MAKE THE PAYMENT SO THAT WE CAN HOLD THIS CASE AND IF NOT THAN WE WILL PROCEED WITH THE LAWSUIT.
