    These are scams.  I have gotten these as well.  I actually called the company they claims was suing me and they told me it is a total scam.  Don’t pay them anything.  I would contact your payday loan company and talk to them before you do anything else.

    If the debt is being collected by a 3rd party, It is highly unlikely that you can be arrested. I would suggest however, that you file a formal complaint with the Federal Trade Commission. Harassment by collectors is illegal under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. YOU HAVE RIGHTS!

    There are no longer any “Debtor Prisons”.  They are trying to scare you, you cannot be arrested for not paying them.  The payday loan industry are leeches, they take advantage of the desparate among us.
