Payday loan collection 3rd party company


My Complaint: In 2013, we had a very difficult financial year and had to get several payday loans in order to pay our rent. I always paid the loans back within a month, including the fees. A company pretending to be a law firm contacted me claiming that I had not paid the loans and that they had an arrest warrant for me and would come to my job and arrest me if I did not pay it. I panicked because they sounded official e.g. had my personal information and when I called their number, a “receptionist” answered the phone. They also had me pay them using Green Dot vs. a debit card.


My Demand: contacted a lawyer but they had changed their telephone number
