Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan
I applied for a loan on their website www.8xfinancials.com
They said i was approved for a 10000 dollar loan, all i need to do was to pay 502 cad and another 1025 for an apparent mandatory payment protection insurance.
Although the company is based in the us as it seems, a quick google maps search shows they are not located in that location.
They say they have a location in canada as well. Google search street view shows that it is a bush.
The loan officer named Michael Johns said that sign this contract that you agree to pay these fees and your money will be released in 20 - 30 minutes.
So i send him the money, but only half of the ppi, he said he would help me out outof his pocket yo cover the cost.
Now i send the money using moneygram first to a lady named fathima risna who is apparently a manager on vacation in sri lanka. Because she was the only one who could authorize that i paid the funds.
Otherwise it would take 2 - 3 business days.
Next i send the insurance money to another lady in sri lanka named yesmin greasy. Apparently all the processing staff work out of the country! I know it says they out source work to reduce costs on labour.
So i complete all that and i ask to see confirmation that the loan officer im dealing with (michael johns) has set up the wire from his bank to mine.
Says he just needs confirmation from the insurance company that the funds have been recieved. The company they apparenly deal with is called american affordable insurance....but im sending money to sri lanka through moneygram.
So after much pushing on my part for a confirmation number or something. He says ill get the money by midnight, that i dont need proof and that when you see the money in your account, that will be all the proof you need.
Midnight comes, nothing. So i leave him a text message that i want to speak in the morning.
In the morning we speak, i ask "where is the money". He says on the money gram receipt i did not use the name i had on my drivers liscence so the money was blocked. I checked to see if the funds were collected on moneygrams webpage and it said yes, the funds were collected. So what i had to do was send another $490 with the name on the drivers liscence and the funds will be released. I said i want my money back from yesmin greasy and ill send those funds again because i had maxed out every financial option i had.
Michael says he cant because the money is locked in the system. The thing that bothers me is that this is a clerical error on moneygrams part, i gave them my liscence with my full name on it and they still butchered it when i took a look at it. I was also instructed by moneygram that all the recipiant needed was to have the reference code to pick up the money. Michael Johns never once stated that my name had to be accurate, and the moneygram clerk spelt my name in an abbreviated way, maybe because they were tired and it was the end of the day.
So i ask for the initial deposit of 502 cad and he quickly replies saing "bye, file cancelled". So now im short 900 bucks.
I signed a contract stating that the initial payment of 502 and the insurance cost would be the only two things i would be paying for, but now he wants money again.
Im going to join a credit rebuilding program and then get a loan from the bank. These online companies are fraud artists and will suck you dry. I spent my last 500 dollars on this, neglecting, food,shelter, gas because i was promised, that there would be no problems and i would recieve the money by midnight.
So stay away from online lending companies that dont care about your credit history or who say they give loans to people with bad credit. Pay off your debts, rebuild credit and keep it there, thats my plan.
Thanks for reading, hope you dont get scammed too.

The say they approve you for a loan but then ask for you to send them money through western union or buy cash cards like itunes and send them money that way.
