We’re getting reports of text messages from Credit300.com, and others like it, telling you that your cash advance is now ready… though no one seems to have actually requested a cash advance from these people or anyone else.
The text message we were alerted to read:
Great News! Your requested CASH advance is now available! Get up to $1500 immediately! GVM1500 Visit: CREDIT300.com
When I visisted credit300.com, the website forwarded to credithelpasap.com.
So on the website, after selecting the $5000 credit line option and pressing the big “Continue” button, I was then taken to easymaxpaydayadvances.com, which wants me to fill in the last four of my social security number. Uh, no thanks guys. So I went back to see where the other options took me.
Selecting the $1500 cash advance option took me to webpaydaylending.org. This site has a basic contact form they want you to fill in and they’ll “match you with lenders that can provide you with a short term cash loan.”
Selecting the “Get a Credit Card” option takes us to freshsavingsplus.com, which wants us to apply for such cards as American Express or Capitol One.
Credit300.com is just a portal to a universe filled with credit card apps, payday loans, and cash advances. Hardly worth the time you spent read this.
I wouldn’t say anything they’re doing is a scam necessarily (of course this could change), but it definitely qualifies as spam… lots of it.
Nothing to see here.
