  1. Go to work. It is a scam.

    You cannot be arrested for an unpaid debt.


  2. They are blowing smoke, and probably violating a variety of consumer protection laws. If this were a bad check case you'd get a certified letter from the District Judge's Office. You would be able to defend, since most payday loans involve post-dated checks, and also based on the statute of limitations. They are trying to scare you into paying a debt which you may not owe.

    You can complain about them to the Attorney General's Office, or take action through an attorney.
