Information on Advance-fee Loan Scam

The fraudsters responsible for this scam demand upfront payment of various “fees,” requesting payment via money, wire or cash transfers, or via prepaid debit cards like Green Dot.

These scammers are not affiliated with Cash Factory USA or anyone associated with us. Cash Factory USA does not require upfront payment on any of its loans and does not charge application fees. These scammers often attempt to copy legitimate lenders’ licenses or use fake loan confirmations or approval letters.

Warning Signs

  • They ask for payment in advance
  • They ask for a prepaid debit card like Green Dot
  • They ask you to wire them money
  • They send fraudulent approval or confirmation letters.
    These are examples of fraudulent letters.
