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.

Watch the video below to see in action the payday loan scam, reported in the news.

    Today, December 5, 2014 at 1:30 pm PST. I just received a phone call from a company called Capital Providence 562-553-3116, and since I'm always being wary of anything (former government auditor), I double check everything before I even respond. The automated call was very aggressive in tone (my first cue that this was a scam), and threaten a bench warrant to be issued against me for failure to press #9 to speak to a representative (cue 2, I have a law degree and I know the law); therefore, I hung up and decided to research this and found you guys. Amazing how they got my phone number as I am unlisted everywhere, but I'm going to really watch my credit report and happy that I have alerts for any suspicious activity. Please report this to the FBI hotline by filing a complaint online with our Internet Crime Complaint Center or by using our online Tips and Public Leads form; and you can find it here at http://www.ic3.gov/complaint/default.aspx or here at http://www.fbi.gov/scams-safety/e-scams/e-scams
