One of my Facebook friends received a threatening email with such bad grammar and outrageous arguments that it's almost comical.
The email warns that you owe close to a thousand dollars to Advance Cash America and you're going to be legally prosecuted in a couple days.
It claims your social security number has been "red flag" and if you don't call within 48 hours, "You'll be found guilty into the courthouse."
Yes, that's directly from the email.
It tries to confuse you with names that sound similar to other cash advance groups and also makes up names like the United Legal Investigation Bureau and ACS Legal Group.
Bottom line, these are crooks who are trying to scare you into wiring them money. Ignore them.
I found one common link among some people who were targeted. They clicked on a pop-up ad about a loan. Just be careful navigating the web. You may be giving information to a crook and not even know it.
