Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

Got scammed for $960 from the guys. Claimed to be operating as Advance America and approved me for a loan of $5,000. All good but I first had to receive money from them & I in turn would send the money back to the with a Walmart gift card???? I knew it was ** but I did it anyway . Couple days later the money they sent later from two checks bounced, caused NSF charges on my bank account, and put me in a bind but all good. Hope the cats get caught.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

My wife and I were trying to get a loan for Xmas when a few days later I recieved a text stating we were approved for one asking for an email to send details to. Once I called to find out more was informed they would make 2 deposits one to determine if the account was legit which we would have to return and than a second for the loan.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I've been applying for loans online. I got a call from Cash Loans dba Advance America. He said his name was Michael Davidson. He had a Middle Eastern accent. He offered me $5000. They deposited a check into my account. I was instructed to go to Walmart or Walgreens and buy Google Play card, in the amount of $100 and that it was a test to boost my credit score and show that I was credit worthy because I had a low credit score. I used my bank debit card. I bought 2 one hundred dollar Google Play cards from Walmart. I called them back and gave them the security numbers off the back of the cards. I took pictures of the cards and sent it to them. They said they would call me back tomorrow, to give you a loan. They called back and said we need you to do it again because it was too late for our finance department. So I went to Walgreen and bought another 2 Google Plays cards for $100 each. I took pictures of the back of the cards and sent them to them again. They said it was too late in the day and the finance office wanted me to do another one the next day for $670. He said you don't have to buy Google Play cards anymore, just go to Walmart and buy 2 Walmart gift cards. In the meantime, my bank had frozen my account as they thought the activity was suspicious, but I asked them to unfreeze it, I told them it was me. So they unfroze my account and I went to Walmart and 2 gift cards: $500 and $170, and scratched off the security number, and took pictures of them, and sent them. They guy said he would call me back to confirm the $5000 was deposited. I checked my bank account on my phone app, and the balance was negative $889. So I called Michael. He said the reason the loan wasn't deposited, was because I was in another state, and had to pay taxes. He said his company would pay $250 and I only had to pay the remaining $250. I told him I didn't have $250. I asked again why my account was in arrears. He said it's because the account they were using to run the tests have been closed.

That's when I knew it was a scam. I called my HR department and asked them not to deposit my check, but it was too late. I don't get another check until december 14th. My car payment, insurance, credit card payments are all late, and my credit score has dropped.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I have been inquiring about getting a loan when i recieved a call from a person could not tell if man or woman claiming to be with advance america and i was approved for a loan i gave all information asked for and that first due to my low credit score i would get some money deposited and i would need to send it back to improve my score then the money would be deposited the following day. Once the check was deposited which is the check i attached i noticed it was not a loan company as well as the back of the check has a signature that is not mine. The bank put the check on hold in which i believe it scared whoever off because the phone nunber suddenly did not work anymore. I have also recieved 2 calls that i believe to be the same person trying to do the same thing.

I was applying for a loan and they sent me email saying I was approved. I called the number in the email. The guy had an accent and was rude. I gave him some information and later during the call I told him to cancel. He hang up before I ask if it was canceled. I called back and he said it was canceled. He called me names and to stop calling. He was scamming people cause I contacted the company he was using and they told me it was a scammer.

I was contacted by Michael Rich claiming to be from the company Advance America telling me that i had been approved for a $5000 loan and they already had my bank account number and ssn and needed to put $900 in my account and me to send it back to them to try to help my credit. They then asked for my username and password to my online banking account. I returned the $900 via Google Play cards and was told the $5000 would be in my account in 3-4 hours. Mark Peter then called me back 3 hours later stating it would be 2 more hours. When they called me back 3 hours later they said they would need to put $1700 in my account and for me to also send that back via Google Play cards and that the money would be there in 5 minutes. I sent the money back on 8/3/2018 and was told that it would be 3-4 hours. I tried to call back and no answer. They called me back 3 hours later and then again said it would be another 2-3 hours. I then informed them that i was no longer interested due to already being told the same thing twice. I have now lost $2600 that i didnt even have in the first place. They called me from the number 1 (803) 400-3614 and texted me from the number 1 (803) 560-6757. i have now closed my bank account and refuse to deal with them.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I was online looking for loans. I located Advance America online. Advanceamerica.com. I filled out an application for a loan online. The loan was up to $4000. I would pay them back $155 month for 36 months until the loan was paid off. After I filled out the application I received an E mail from Steve Clark with Advance America. E mail stated I was approved for the loan. I called the company at 210-401-1823 and spoke with Steve Clark. They would send $700. He said I would have to go to Rite Aid on East 105 and Chester in Cleveland OH and buy two Google cards. I was to put $500 on one card and $200 on another Google card. I purchased the cards about a week ago. I scratched the numbers off the back I called him and read the numbers off. The next day he phoned asked me to do it again.Send two more cards for $500 each for a $1000 loan. I did not send the additional money. My checking account is overdrawn $1500. He direct deposited checks in my checking account. I gave my checking account and routing number over the phone.I called my bank and reported it to the Fraud Department at the bank. The scammer tried to get $1500. When I call the phone number back 210-401-1823 it beeps and disconnects. He also called from 272-8925. I don't have the area code.
