Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

They called and told me that I qualified for a loan. Because my credit was poor that I I needed to send them a money gram for 250.00 for loan insurance. I asked him for the insurance companies name, he said that it was within the loan company. He had all my banking info, my address. I told him it would take me 2 hours to be able to send him the money. I did this so I could check it out with the BBB. They told me it was a scam. From his accent he is of foreign descent, and saidhis name was Kevin Miller.

I got an email that said I was approved for $5,000 loan. Called the phone number, guy said to wire $200. He read all the last 4 digits to my social, account number and routing number. I knew it was a scam right then and there. Did not wire any money. I am calling my bank to let them know. I have attached the exact pdf I received in the email.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I was suppose to get a loan, it seemed legit, they said it was a federal government company. I sent them $200, and they said the loan along with the $200 would be in my bank account in 30-40 minutes. After 1 hour, I called them back to cancel it because I had a feeling it was a scam, and he said that I can't get a refund but he can get his $2000 back.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I  had initially applied online for a number of loans. I received a text message today from Advance America.  Message said I was approved for $5000 loan. Message stated to call them back. I called the number 718-717-2192. The person that answered was difficult to understand. They Instructed me to Moneygram $212 for insurance. I could barely understand the person I was speaking with.  The call was breaking up also. I had called number twice and thought it was strange I got the same person.

I had been receiving phone calls/emails, a payday loan Cash Advance America, and on the call ID the phone number reads, 1-214-614-9030, the gentleman’s name is Mr. Alex White, his title, Sr. Funding Officer (funding manager). I became very suspicious because he sounded like he was pushing for time, anxious for me to open a new account. He also gave me a list of banks to choose from to open this new checking account, 1USAA Bank, 2Wells Fargo Bank, 3Suntrust Bank, 4Capital One Bank and on one of them I clicked on, “Scams”, read the, “Tips to avoid being scammed.” I followed 4 tips below. I did not file a complaint because I did not follow through with his offer. He really sounds very convincing and as much as I need a lot of help right now, I do not feel comfortable following through with this offer or shall I say, “SCAM/SCAMMMER”!!!!!!.

1. Research the companies that solicit your business. Use resources such as the If you can’t find any company information during your research, consider this a red flag and avoid doing business with them.

2. Avoid high-pressure situations or deadlines. If someone urges you to act quickly or advises you not to tell anyone else, you should be cautious about dealing with this person.

3. If a potential employer, unconfirmed business solicitor or potential buyer asks you to wire them money—don’t do it! It’s a scam.

4. Be suspicious of anyone who claims they can generate guaranteed profits quickly.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I was told that I was approved for a loan to be paid back in installments. After verifying all my identity information, I was told that I needed to send $250 to receive the loan thru Western Union. I told them I had no money and they said your loan is denied. When I asked them about all my private information, the guy responded with "[censored] your information". Now I am scared that my identity will be stolen and my credit will be ruined.
