Case File Number: #ACS-7864/51
You took the loan from the company SPEEDY CASH which has now gone up to $1210.00. The total pay off balance is $1210.00, however due to bad debt we do have a Settlement offer available for you, if you can come up with the settlement amount of $500.00 by March 5th 2018, this account will be marked as paid in full and you can avoid the legal consequences.
YOU CAN EMAIL US IN ORDER TO MAKE THE PAYMENT SO THAT WE CAN HOLD THIS CASE AND IF NOT THAN WE WILL PROCEED WITH THE LAWSUIT.
Also, do not send your card details to them or use your card on any website which the links they normally provide directs to.
