Advance America Cash Advance Loan Approval Scams Being Sent by Scammers

Below, is another fake "Advance America Cash Advance" email sent by a scammer pretending to be from Advance America Cash Advance, who wants me to give him back money he claimed he deposited into my account for verification proposes. He then started asking for login credentials for online banking and saying me he deposit the funds in my account because it will boost up my credit score. But, I know that legitimate companies will never ask for banking credentials.

With this type of scam, the scammers put a fake check in your account and trick you into sending the money from that check. Once your bank has discovered that the check is a fake, you will have to pay back the money and the check processing fees.

    There has to be a way to press charges against this company

  • August 14, 2020 at 11:42 PM by an anonymous user from: Orlando, Florida, United States

    Is there any way to prosecute this company for the wrong they've done to me and others

  • March 18, 2020 at 10:23 PM by an anonymous user from: Charlotte, North Carolina, United States

    I recieved an email from this “company” stating I was approved for a loan up to $8000. They attached the agreement in Microsoft Word format. Now I could be wrong but any loan company I’ve dealt with does not put it in Word format. Seems like they did that just to copy the real websites logo. In reading the agreement the name of the company changed from Advance Cash America to Advance America to a completely different loan company that with I looked up was nonexistent. And it seems like they change the name just enough throughout the email that someone just skimming through might not catch. I’ve been in tight spot with money and these guys know how to take advantage of it! So BE CAREFUL guys! I suggest going to the actual loan companies website to do anything. Or call their customer service number. Don’t call any numbers listed in an email!

    Happy Hunting

    Advance America Data protection ACT 1998 loan approved call 413-327-7275. Deposit small amount of money into my account then I am supposed to go to walmart and send their money back all within 90 minutes?

    Yes Norman Blackwell is a fraud, stole 778, had my account information address and everything. Said I was approved for a 8k loan never, got nothing

  • November 14, 2019 at 11:03 AM by an anonymous user from: New Iberia, Louisiana, United States

    I applied for a loan and for a set amount but because if my credit rating each were too high to recieve. Then next day I get a text message from this "American Advance Loan" Norman Blackwell saying I'm approved for hp to 8k. Really? They too wanted information about my bank and account details. In searching on this company I found it to be missing details all other lenders would ask about. Also the fact they wanted me to send a payment before I got any money to assure the bank details were correct. This is not real or even is the idea of this type if loan valid.

  • September 28, 2019 at 11:36 AM by an anonymous user from: New York, United States

    Received a test message from supposedly Advance America. $230 to be held out of our account! Called the # and said my loan was not yet due through local branch. Would not let me know where or why the $230 was held out of my account. I am going to talk to Bank and stop payment!

  • September 20, 2019 at 6:01 PM by an anonymous user from: Raleigh, North Carolina, United States

    I received two calls today from 718-766-1664. They left a voicemail on the 2nd call that said I had been approved for a loan up to $15,000.

    I called them back and asked if someone had applied under my social (I didn’t give the whole number) and they hung up on me. I called back 8 times and each time when I asked the same question they would hang up on me until the final call and they told me no one had applied under my number.

    I don’t believe they even checked. It was a woman and two different men that answered the phone with middle eastern accents.

    I can’t file with the Federal Trade Commission because all they did was call but for those that have been scammed out of money I would highly suggest filing a complaint with them. You can also file a complaint with the Attorney General in your State.

    It’s all online. I hope this helps.

  • August 12, 2019 at 4:24 PM by an anonymous user from: Fullerton, California, United States

    Fotuneatly, I suspected fraud right away - checked their info on my laptop - I found out others were scammed, very sad state of affairs- the represenative of several scams had an Indian accent and asked for twenty dollars to be sent from a wallmart for insurance on a five thousand dollar loan! They will get angry if you inquire about possible fraud! Why is the government not investigating these fraudulent companies? Michael F.

I have contacted other legit sources only to discover the "Swahili" speaking individual who contacted me from (619) number, is in fact a fraud.

    Your professional outreach to locate and subdue these b******s is greatly appreciated.
