Scam Alert Information
Scam artists have recently targeted marketing services in the short-term lending space and other industries. These scammers sometimes pose as legitimate lenders or debt collectors. Scammers can be very convincing, especially when they use threats and appear to have access to personal information.
Recognize Fraudulent Content and Communication
Be suspicious of:
“Pre-approvals” that require you to purchase any sort of prepaid debit or cash card or wire money as a “processing fee” or “good faith deposit”. Legitimate lenders do not offer approvals prior to application and do not require good faith deposits.
Requests to get your personal or financial information. Always be cautious when volunteering any personal or financial information over the phone or internet. Never provide payment information that you did not initiate. If you are uncomfortable with a phone call that was not initiated by you, hang up. Then contact the company using legitimate sources such as contact phone numbers found on the company’s website.
Recognize Fraudulent Collection Efforts
Be suspicious of
Threats of violence, intimidation, or foul language. The Federal Debt Collection Practices Act specifically prohibits debt collectors from being abusive, unfair, or deceptive in trying to collect debt.
Threats to garnish your wages.
Callers that are unable or unwilling to provide loan agreement information or payment history when you ask for it. Loan providers are required to provide all loan agreement information or payment history upon requestwhen you ask for it.
