Payday Loan Scam
Cash Advance. Easy Money.
Emergency financing can often be a lifesaver, especially during a rough patch. However, don't fall victim to the Payday loan scam, a robocall offering fast and easy money. They are an attempt to collect your private data to commit identity fraud.
What You Should Know
They're called payday loans because payday is typically when borrowers can pay them back. They're usually small, short-term loans with interest rates (on an annualized basis) upwards of 400 percent.
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 – either for identify theft or debt-collection.
