Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

This all started because my furnace went out and I was so worried about how to pay for it. I applied for a loan online. I got an email on 10.16.20 from [email protected] saying I was approved for a $5000 loan from Cash Advance. They asked for my bank account numbers, a picture of my drivers license, and my Social Security number. On Tuesday, 10.20.20, he told me they deposited $1600 into my checking account to boost my credit rating. He told me they needed it back to pay on the loan. I went to Walmart to buy the gift cards, but the lady at the service counter would not sell me the cards. She said something was going on, and our bosses won't let us. Then I went to Krogers, and the cashier wouln't sell me the cards either. Austin White told me to go to Walgreens at Demorest and Clime in Columbus, OH and buy two prepaid cards from Vanilla for $500. The clerk asked why I wanted to buy them. I told her I was repaying a loan. She said that doesn't sound good. I was on the phone with Adrian the scammer. He told me to tell her I was buying them for personal use, and not to say anything to the clerk about who I was talking to. She asked who I was talking to, and I said just talking. She asked if they had deposited money into my account, and were asking for it back. I said yes, the loan company wanted it back. She said oh, and I bought the cards. I thought she was being nosy. When I got back to my car, he asked me to scratch off the security numbers from the back of the cards and take a picture and send it to them. The next day I went to the CVS and bought a third Vanilla card for $500. The next day he said he had deposited $2000, not $1500, and he needed another $500. So, I checked the bank account, and there was $2000 in my account. So I pulled the $2000 out. I went back to the same CVS and bought two Vanilla cards for $500 each. Then I drove back to Walgreens and bought two more Vanilla cards for $500 each. She asked if I hadn't been in and bought Vanilla cards before, I said yes, but I didn't want to talk to her. I sent them pctures of the backs of the cards again. Then on Thursday, I began to receive notices from my bank that my payments to my creditors have been reversed. I went in to *****, and the teller told me the payments had been reversed and I owed $3500 to them. That's when I found out the scammer had reversed my payments and used the money to deposit it into my checking account. On 10.19.20, 10.20.20, and 10.21.20 the scammers reversed my auto loan payments back to June. The scammer also went into my Aarons account, and my City of Columbus water bill, and my Holiday Inn payment from June, then my electric bill. When I went into ***** on the 22nd, at ******** *** *****, I spoke to an obnoxious representative with a foreign accent, who closed my account. He told me I must return and sign a repayment agreement, or face fraud charges and go to jail, then told me to get out. I called Vanilla Visa and they told me all of the money had been converted to Paypal. I called ScamPulse.com and she was very nice. The ScamPulse.com rep, *****, saved my life. I was going to kill myself. She told me to file a police report, and contact my credit report. She was so nice to me. I contacted the Columbus Police, and the officer was very nice to me. I still wake up at all hours of the night, I cry and cry. I'm on Social Security. I watch my grandkids for my son who's a single parent. I've never been in trouble before but one traffic fine. My son told me to check my homeowners insurance policy. I have ID theft protection through Grange, and my adjuster has filed a claim for me. She said I may get a check in 30 days.

I was applying for a loan they asked for my bank routing and account number. I had just bought a car so this loan would have helped me big time! They stole $1000 dollars from my account. I have reported fraud with my bank. Cash Advance is run by scammers and they are not willing to send me my money back. STAY AWAY FROM THEM!!

I applied online for personal loans and became a target . I was contacted by a Sean Richards and he said I was approved for $5000. So I contacted a branch to see if it wasn't too good to be true . Unfortunately the lady recognized the name and advised me to report the scam as soon as possible.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I feel I may have been scammed. My car was repossessed. I went online. and found Cash Advance. Their phone number is 312-777-9788. I do not have their address. When they call it shows Chicago IL. I found them online and called them. I filled out an application online for a loan. They called back. I was approved for $3000. They needed my online bank account. Now I am overdrawn. They withdrew about $223. I called my bank and reported it. I thought they put $200 and $704 in account. My bank told me the check bounced. I was in a hurry. They told me to go to Wal Mart and get a WalMart gift card for $200. I called them and read the numbers. I never received the loan.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

*** *** *** contacted me by phone and offered to loan me money a sum of $10000 so I could start my company. What I didn't know is they had no intention to lend me anything, what they proceeded to tell me after viewing my information was they would use my *** *** card to deposit money into then I would return the money to them. This sounded odd but in this process they had gotten ahold of *** *** and had my deposit amount raised to $900 though for myself the limit stayed at$500. I assumed that if *** *** knew of this then it was fine, my limit was at $500and all I had on that card was $65, so I thought that was worst case scenario. I learned otherwise because with the help of *** *** *** *** was able to defraud my credit card of some $8000. *** company allowed this also which leads me to believe that *** bank is in on this also.

Type of a scam Phishing

I was called by this number and left an incomplete voice message offering "no upfront fees; no security deposit; or processing charges" and to call our "direct" line number (773) 869-0820. The message was very similar to the messages I was receiving from the "IRS" advising me that my arrest was imminent. To confirm it is the same group of scammers, I called back and as expected the person who answered the phone had a very strong East Indian (?) accent just as the IRS scammers did. Called back a few times more and got different people with the same accent. If cash advance is a legitimate business how do they have my number, I have never done business with any cash or payday loan companies and do they only hire people with Indian accents?
