Advance America Cash Advance Review

In this Advance America Cash Advance Review we take a look at another Payday loans company that really seem to be leaving it’s mark on the consumers. Not really in the most positive way. We really go out of our way to find payday loan companies that are genuinely interested in helping people. So that you, the consumer can be informed. finding an honest company is an incredibly trying task, considering the trail of ruined people payday loan companies have left behind in the past. This company follows that pattern. We came across over 134 consumer complaints on just one website. That’s pretty devastating if you ask me. The more devastating thing is that Advance America Cash Advance has done absolutely nothing to try and resolve these issues. It’s like Advance America Cash Advance has absolutely no clue they are being destroyed online. Here what consumers have to say about Advance America Cash Advance.

One person said, “They have called me a number of times and I called back to ask them to take my name and number off their list. The man started swearing me out and was very disrespectful. I have it recorded and I’m forwarding to the BBB, file many complaint for this company, and their main office.” That sounds pretty nasty. This consumer had a simple request, and the immediate response was aggression. Another consumer said, “I gave the representative my info, and he said I had to put $250 into their account in order to get the $8,000 loan. When I told him that the letter I received said that they did not believe in that, he said “** you” and hung up. When I called back and asked to speak to a supervisor he said “** you you mother **” and hung up again.” There’s definitely a pattern of aggression and unprofessional-ism here. Which would probably explain their current status online. From what we’ve read, this company outsources their calls the places like Asia and India. That says a lot about how much a company actually cares about it’s people. They outsource, because it’s cheaper, but the quality of the customer service is just horrendous. I can’t even begin to tell about the experiences I’ve had. Dealing with people who don’t speak English very well is a pain in the butt. Advance America Cash Advance needs to step it up a notch, if they want to get the love of the consumers back.

In this review of Advance American Cash Advance, The CFRB gives this payday loan company company a 0 star rating. Check Our Resources page for a list of trusted companies, which have received 4 stars or better. Check Our Reviews page for more insight into trusted companies.

Midland Credit Management, Inc. – Scam!

In this Midland Credit Management, Inc. review we take a look at a debt consolidation that really hasn’t won the love of consumers over the years. From what we found, they are convincing more people to grab their pitchfork, and build their stakes than they are to use their “services” and get out of debt. According to their online bio, they’re a company that empowers their customers through education and payment plans. They even go as far as saying they take pride in their clear and honest communication with their consumers. Folks, I can’t tell you how badly I wish I could believe that. Unfortunately, consumers are saying the exact opposite. We scrolled through pages and pages of customer complaints and warning. So we thought that we’d share a few to give you an inside look.

The first statement comes from a person doesn’t even own them money. “Midland Credit Management, Inc. continues to harass people for amounts that should have never been charged in the first place. Quit calling, mailing…I don’t owe you anything. Quit attacking my credit card accounts.” They seem to relentless in their pursuit. That’s a good quality, but it seems they have taken it a little too far in this case. Another consumer stated, “I receive a letter from Midland Credit Management, Inc. stating that I owe $7,000 from the original creditor of a ********** Bank. First of all I never had anything accounts with this bank, never even heard of them. So I called to see if this is legit or not, and it keeps saying, “All circuits are busy. Please try again later.” So I am assuming this must be a scam. ” That’s quite the thing to do. They just dropped a bomb, and went incognito. You’re not suppose to hide from your consumer when they are frantic and have questions. Just to reminder you, this is the company that prides itself on clear and honest communication with consumers. One more! “For the past year Midland Credit Management, Inc. has been calling our home from 6:45 AM to the evening hours. I even put a block on their number and they still call. I have perfect credit and do not owe anyone anything. I don’t understand why they are harassing us.” I think the key word here is harass. That’s a word we came across quite a bit during our investigation. I’m sure Midland Credit Management, Inc. has helped people in the past. At some point they might have been a well trusted company, but as of right now their reputation is floating in the toilet. We recommend you stay away from this company.

In this review of Midland Credit Management, Inc., The CFRB gives this debt consolidation company a 0 star rating. Check Our Resources page for a list of trusted companies, which have received 4 stars or better. Check Our Reviews page for more insight into trusted companies.

Introduction to Bitcoin Part 3

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?

We’ve saved the absolute best for last. the cream of the crop. The Final part of The Introduction to Botcoin is About the Creator of the Currency and the mystery that surrounds him. Personally, this is probably the most interesting thing I found during my investigation into Bitcoin. You See, nobody really knows who he, or she, or they really are. They go by the name Satoshi Nakamoto. That could be a real person’s name, but many believe that it’s just an alias. Satoshi popped up on the scene in 2009 when he first released the very fist version of Bitcoin. Once it was released, he work with others via email. In 2010, he began to fade away from the bitcoin community. He was incredibly careful to never reveal anything personal about himself. In 2011 is when he went completely dark. the last thing he said was that he had “moved onto other things.” Since then people have been on the hunt to uncover the identity of this genius.

How Rich is Satoshi Nakamoto?

An Analysis was done by bitcoin and cryptography authority, Sergio Lerner, Satoshi has built up quite the fortune. He said Satoshi has about 1 million unspent bitcoin. That’s equivalent to 1 billion USD.

What is Next for Satoshi Nakamoto?

Nobody really knows what to expect. I think we should learn to enjoy this new currency and build upon what Satoshi has started. Instead of wasting our time trying to find him. The truth of the matter is, the only way people are going to find him is if he wants to be found. Judging by the his silence, I don’t believe that’s the case.

That concluded The Introduction to Bitcoin. I hope it gave you a little insight into this up and coming technology.

Introduction to Bitcoin Part 2

In This second part of The Introduction to Bitcoin, we delve deeper into this new and exciting frontier! The start off part two of the Introduction to Bitcoin, we’d like to talk about some of the characteristics of the new currency. Bitcoin has a few key feature that really sets it apart from government backed currencies. We’ve covered the fact that it’s decentralized, and that it’s a currency for the people and by the people. So what other important things must you know about Bitcoin’s characteristics?

Characteristics

1. It’s completely anonymous…sort of.

You can actually hold multiple Bitcoin address that aren’t linked to names, address, or other personal information. However, Bitcoin stores every single transaction in the network. All of it is stores in What is called The Block Chain. It’s sort of like a general ledger, except on a much greater scale. So of you have an account that you use publicly, people will be able to see your account & balance. They just won’t know it’s you.

2. It’s Non-Repudiable.

Basically, when you send Bitcoin there is absolutely no getting them back. They are gone forever. BOOM. BAM. GONE. Unless, the recipient send them back. Which usually isn’t the case. I’m sure the Bitcoin network right now, is still full of Vipers looking to take advantage of amateur users. To give you an idea how much one bitcoin is actually worth, we did a little digging. We found that 1 bitcoin is worth about $233. Yeah, I know. So losing these puppies is a big deal.

3. Set-Up is Quick & Easy

This is one aspect we found to be really cool. Unlike the conventional banks, there aren’t any hoops to jump through. You can literally set up an account in seconds. Another perk of not having to give up private information. It’s really a great alternative system to what we normally use. Going, filling out paperwork, giving your personal information, and just for a bank account can be a huge hassle.

That concludes the second part in our Introduction to Bitcoin. Come back tomorrow for the final part on the Introduction to Bitcoin.

Introduction to Bitcoin Part 1

It’s not very often that something comes along and redefines our society in some way. First, it was automobiles. Then the television, the internet, and the cell phone. It seems that we are constantly creating things that are introducing us to a new way of living, and propelling us forward to hopefully some magnanimous. So what’s next on this road to innovation and discovery? Is it the time machine? Perhaps it’s the flying cars we saw on TV as kids? Unfortunately, I think those things are still a few years off. The next big things is bitcoin.

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a form of digital currency, created and held electronically. Bitcoin is produced by people and businesses, all around the world. It’s the first example of a new category of money known as cryptocurrency. Now, I know what you’re probably thinking. Cryptocurrency sounds like somethings that was used in an 80’s sci-fi film.

Where did Bitcoin come from?

Bitcoin was created by a software developer by the name of Satoshi Nakamoto. The Idea he had for bitcoin, was to create a currency that was independent from any central authority. An electronic currency with very low transaction fees. So what makes this new currency any different from the USD or Euro?

The Difference:

            Bitcoin is conventional in the sense that is can be used to buy things electronically. The same way any other world currency can. The characteristic that sets Bitcoin apart is its decentralization. Meaning that no single institution can control this currency network. Knowing that large banks can’t touch their money puts most at ease.

What is Bitcoin based on?

Bitcoin isn’t based on any conventional currency per say. Probably the only characteristic it shares would be the fact that it holds worth. Bitcoin is based on mathematics.  Around the globe people are using software programs that follow a formula to produce bit coin. The software is open source, meaning that anyone can check it and make sure it’s doing what it’s supposed to do.
