Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

Jenny called with a thick accent that reminded me of possibly India but I am not 100% sure. She said she was with Advance America in regards to my loan application. Which I have applied to many loans recently and I do not remember every single loan results that I applied for. Assuming it was legit enough as the name sounded close enough. She first asked me how much I wanted to borrow. It was approved almost to quickly and without hesitation. Then requested to have personal information texted to the number she was calling from. The background noise was not that of a typical loan agency. Information was texted to two different phone numbers. In which after the info was given, Jenny changes the plan and requests to know if there is some bad credit or open account under my name. There is I informed her of my directtv account. She informs that she will have the lender put $200 into the account, in which I was to send back the money before I would receieve my loan amount. "To build credit".

Jenny: Do you have any stores near you?

Me: Walmat

Jenny: Can you go to walmart now?

Me: What Am I getting at walmart?

Jenny: Payment.

This payment was not explained fully. I was unsure if it was to be a MoneyGram or a gift card. She was pushy and raised her voice multiple times getting bossy like. I informed her that she did not need to talk to me in that manner.

I was already suspicious of the situation as she logged into my bank account. But, I was done when she requested the deposit verification code given via text message to my phone from my bank. I asked her how come you need the code? She said to verify it is you to deposit. I question why my direct deposit did not need this code. Then I was done. I knew it smelled off from the beginning. I tried to get as much information out of her as possible once I realized that is loan was not a good idea to continue with.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I’m concerned that these scammers are pretending to be from Cash America located at 7622 University Blvd, Winter Park, FL. 32792 (321-392-0841) . The have obtained my bank routing and bank account numbers. However, I became extremely suspicious because they asked for my banks password and user id.

They have called me more than 4 time within the past hour demanding my password and user name. emailed me 3 times. texted me twice.

description: very thick aerobic accents. two guys trading the phone pretending to me the Loan Officer, Mike Stone per the emails that they sent to me.

I have asked them to verify the business license number, owners name and contact telephone number, and the business federal tax identification number. Nothing has materialized with regards to these demands from me.

I'm very concerned that these scammers will take advantage of an unsuspecting American.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I was working with this company for 3 days trying to receive a payday loan and I was told by Don Watson that because my credit score was so low that I had to make a payment of $200. I purchased a $200 gift card from CVS to verify the payment and when i called Don back he stated I purchased the wrong gift card and that card couldnt be used, he told me to return the card. I asked the store manager if i could return the card and he stated because the card was activated already that it could not be returned!!

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I had entered for a loan in the past gave them my information. Then a California number called me many times. I finally answered and the man said his name was John and he was gonna help me with a loan. He told me that I'd have to pay $75 for a transaction fee and then $112 for some activation. I told him that I decided I didn't want it and he proceeded to tell me that they had already sent it that a Cherie Villanueva from Easley South Carolina was waiting on $187 from me. He said I'd receive that money back but I refused and he kept telling me the money was already sent to the store.

I was searching online for a loan, this company notified me by email that I had my application approved for $5000. Once i contacted them they had my information due to other online loan companys i was seeking out. they talked in a foreign language so i have no idea where they are. But they told me I must go to Wal-Mart to purchase a voucher in the electronics dept for $150 of my own money. Then go to money gram to get the verifacation number, (all so confusing) so somehow this would show them that i would be in good standings for the loan. I was so careless in giving out my information, they certainly give you the run around.. but they make sure you have online banking. After I went to wal-mart I knew that this was a big scam!! They had me going through different steps in order to get more information about my account clear to a sercurity code that is only usable for a short time.. Its harder for me to write what happened than talk to a person about it due to the memory. My bank phoned me today and said that shortly after i went to my bank on July 19, 2017 and closed that accout that someone had tried to deposit a bad check into my account to probably try and get a withdrawel today. if I recal his name was Peter Williams whom i was dealing with. After I told them I was reporting them to the ScamPulse.com i recieved a phone call that was pre-recorded that it was the IRS and to immediatly call the number that the had given me to resolve the issue of somthing to do with my bank and my finacial situation. Then later in the day on the 19th another person attempted to call me and it was the same people but different voices.. I had put there phone number in my contacts because of the numerous phone calls we were making back and forth and it was easy for me to id that it was them calling.

I received a email regarding a loan. The email said to contact the loan company regarding getting a loan for $3,000. So I called the place and the people already had my information from my social to my address. They then asked me to go to Walmart with $300 cash of my personal money to prove I can make the first two loan payments to purchase iTunes cards and once I did that the loan would be placed into my bank account. Unbeknownst to me not knowing about the loan process, I went and purchased the cards. I then contacted the people posing to be the scammer and they said they were still having problems putting the loan into my account. I was leery from that point forward because the whole thing seemed fishy. Nonetheless, they told me that they would try a test amount in my account and I was to go to the bank and withdraw the funds and send it back to them and I would receive my funds. I said no because no one withdraws money and sends it back to someone. They told me I had nothing to worry about and basically bullied me by saying if I refused a case would be filed against me and that I would be arrested. Kept making harassing phone calls to contact me and I subsequently blocked all contact numbers from them. They're posing to be loan officers from Advance America out of Brooklyn, NY. They are going to send you a email, but it doesn't appear to be on a official letterhead. It also appears that the scammer just copied and pasted Advance America on the email. I was scammed out of $300 cash of my own personal funds.

I have been searching for and personal loan received this email stating I have per approved and needed no money down. When I spoke to the gentleman he said because of my credit I needed to go to Walmart and get a gift card for 300.00 to show my good faith in paying the loan. he had my banking information I have contacted my back about this already. I told him I had to work and couldn't do this until later in the week. The more I thought about it I didn't feel right about it.

Caller claimed to approve a loan for bad credit in the amount of $5,000 no money to be paid in advance but in order to verify identity an itunes card must be purchased in the amount of $350 & once 16 digit in the back of the card is verified a deposit for $5,350 will be made to the bank account. Since conversation was not trusting them @ all, they said will email the contract (never received), I keep searching for more information & other people feedback over the internet, not even 1 person said a good word. Initial call was from 949-204-3855 then they give 213-839-4441 & address as 3180 Westwood Blvd, Los Angeles CA 90025 with License # 99-207-947-LA & credited by BBB, which is NOT. Every one who came to the phone to speak had a hard accent, when I called back the # from mine (blocked) they just answered with a Hello, a trustful company won't do that. The "Manager" called me after a few to go over the email that was never received. I told " You know what, I never got your email, not even 1 feedback of yours has any positive input, your not credited by ScamPulse.com & spent many years working on Fraud & I'm reporting you!...will follow up to this to the last consequences since IDK from where they're able to get so much personal information & they better DO NOT touch or attempt to get even a penny from my account." The guy was speechless, he asked Who told me they're a fraud then I replied "Was I clear enough? Did you heard all I told you & you understood?" again he was speechless & then said YES, I understand. Then I terminated the call. ..The thing is that they were trying so hard to get me into this that they never asked me about my gender cz I said I was Max ( I wasn't) he is my husband & I was trying to protect his identity. A female with a name Max is truly a key to question gender just to verify you're speaking to the right individual & they were careless just because they want just one thing, SCAM you & get your $$$.

I was applying for a online loan, the representative text and call from 8033958009, they got all banking info, debit card info, online sign in info . And they file a claim for you against a company you paid for fraud. I caught that in time but they still have my info. I paid my light bill of 580.80, they went in and file a fraud claim as if I didn't pay the utility company. I told the person I have the fraud company investigating and I have not gotten any more calls or text anymore.
