How the scam works:

(with video below) Criminals claim to be the reps of companies that offers payday loans, which are paycheck advances of cash with a short-term payback.

Most of the callers identify themselves as attorneys for the loan company. They obtain credit card information, dates of birth, confidential telephone numbers and other personal information, and then proceed to victimize the residents. Even worse, they threaten the victims with blackmailing if they don't receive the amount.

    Received a call today from Capital Providence regarding a 2008 payday loan thru cashnet usa. I had paydays loans back during that time. I gave my card info and told them they could process it on 11/28. After doing some research after the call, I went to my local sheriffs office and city police department and was advised to cancel my debit card. Went to my bank and cancelled the card before they could take the money. Won't fall for that one again. I called the company back to get the docket number they were referencing and was transferred, left on hold for 10 minutes and the call dropped. When I tried to call back my call was directed to a generic voice mailbox. Be wary of Capital Providence.

    was called on 4Nov14 and was told i took out a payday loan back in Aug of 2008. Which at the time I was overseas. They threatened me with lawsuit and when asked for documentation he got mad at me and started telling me "this is life" and that even if i was not the one that did it my name was on the check. when asked what was the bank he gave me my ex-husbands bank not mine. He also sent me a settlement letter that he wanted me to sign since i did not sign he called me today 12Nov14 and got mad when i told him to send the so called documentation to my local Police Department. His information is Anthony Ervin and claims he is from Alvarez Sinclair Associates (when googled nothing shows up) the two numbers that he has called me from are 888-339-7797 and 888-541-5077....
