Loan and Debt-Collection Scams

Loan scams involve individuals who pretend to be Cash Money representatives. They offer fraudulent loans to Clients or send illegal, fraudulent debt-collection communications. Sometimes these scams are initiated by Clients on websites they do not realize are fraudulent, and other times the scam messages are received unsolicited by the Client. These communications have been made in the form of calls and emails and are not sent by Cash Money or any of our affiliates.

Most loan scams involve a “finance charge” fee. Individuals claiming to represent Cash Money will send fraudulent loan paperwork and a fake cheque to Clients. Clients are instructed to deposit the cheque and then use a portion of their loan to pay the “finance charge”. When the fake cheque bounces, the Client is at a loss for both the face value of the cheque and the “finance charge”.

Cash Money never adds a “finance charge” as part of a loan approval process. Cash Money does not pay out loans by cheque, and Cash Money will never send unsolicited loan documents to Clients via email.

To appear legitimate, the individuals performing these scams will often copy logos and other images from the Cash Money website, however closer inspection reveals the loan documents are fraudulent.

Examples of Red Flags in Fraudulent Loan Documents

  • Copied Cash Money logo and/or other images from the Cash Money website

  • Use of the company name “CASH ONE HOUR PAYDAY LOANS”

  • Mention of a “finance charge”

  • Various spelling errors, grammatical errors, inconsistent fonts/font sizes, and a pixelated watermark of the Great Seal of the United States

  • Generic email address (cashmoneycanada1@gmail.com) is used. Legitimate Company email addresses will always end with “@cashmoney.ca” or “@curo.com”

  • Phone number is not registered with Cash Money

Warning Signs for Debt-Collection Emails & Other Communication Forms

  • Message comes from a personal email account, such as Gmail, AOL, Hotmail, or Outlook

  • Email domain does not include @cashmoney.ca

  • Fictitious case numbers and outstanding amounts

  • Threats of criminal or legal action

  • Threats to email or fax information to your current employer or references

  • Threats to confiscate all your salary and/or wages

  • Demands for immediate payment and a sense of urgency to repay

Warning Signs for Debt-Collection Calls

  • Use of profane language or incorrect grammar

  • Overly aggressive or rude comments

  • Threats of violence, or criminal or legal action

  • Call comes from an overseas telephone number

  • Demands for immediate payment and a sense of urgency to repay

  • Refusal to provide pertinent information regarding the alleged debt
