I have had a few pay day loans over the last 8 years and I am almost positive I have paid them all in full. Recently I have been getting very nasty e mails from people claiming to be attorneys saying I owe them $1,00's and I am going to be legally prosecuted in a court house. The e mails keep coming and coming... I have responded by saying I don't believe I have any outstanding balances so please send me the legal documents showing that I do. I know there are so many frauds out there trying to scam people for $ once they have your info off the internet. PLEASE tell me how to know if this is a scam or not. I certainly don't want to go to court if I really do owe $$. This has been a nightmare.... PLEASE help. Christine xxxxx
