Total money lost $2,282.25
Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

They put money into my Chase Bank account by taking money back that I had paid to my creditors, then had me send money through Zelle to William B Brown 872-289-7661 and Jeri Woolard 217-561-0200. I am attaching the police report that I filed and a copy of the contract. I ended up not getting any money and because of what they did with the creditors, I am now showing that I'm behind on my payments. Chase bank is also taking that money out of my account, which took my social security check.

I applied for a personal loan online. This person Michael Tucker, I’m sure that’s not his real name. Asked me personal info. And then went on to aske for my online banking username and password. That’s when the Flag went up. He got defensive and hung up. After check the email again, I see there is NO BUSINESS address.

I'm a single mother and I was looking for some help. I have never applied for a loan before And when I finally picked up the phone after after them calling me over and over again, I was told I was approved for alone for $5000 I got excited, Because it was very much needed.. The 1st person I talked to went by the name of Fernando and then he transferred me to his boss who was Kevin Watson which is who I spoke to most of the time... Everything was smooth sailing gave him my information Because I was excited and he seemed for real... They proceeded to put about $2000 into my account, Which I saw however he didn't want me to use any of it Until he gives me the OK... In the meantime I paid a bill and Try sending somebody money through cash app but I had the wrong account so I canceled it and and Kevin Watson called me immediately Giving me a bunch of crap about using the money before I was supposed to... So he wanted Me Too! Transfer the money that I was trying to send through cash app back to him... It was a $1000 I was looking for a loan do you think I have a $1000 to pull out of my [censored]! I had to ask a friend who helped me out against his better judgment... So that was good and then they proceeded to ask me for another $945 dollars do a cash app but then I had to buy bitcoin I did that and in the meantime they froze my bank account because I used the funds without their permission. I was told after they got the $945 my account would be unfrozen they would put the rest of my loan into my account and I could use it however that was not the case. They then asked me for another $930 And my cash app kept declining my friends transfers because because of protection poprotection policies so we have to go from store to store to scan barcodes and they still kept calling me and harassing me... I eventually called my bank told them the situation they completely froze my account so these [censored] had no access to it I unlinked everything from everything from that account they weren't very happy when I said I was contacting my bank... Now one of my best friends is out $3000 for helping me out with something I was so hopeful for and thought was legit... Last time I checked my account And had the bank Stop everything there was still about $2000 and I was told by the fraud department they were sending me a check with whatever balance There was before they blocked it

Same Here

I was scammed! Same M.O. I feel awful. I had plans for the 10grand. Anyhow, a few red flags went up, especially with the visa pre,-paid card mess. I am a scholar, who feels too dumb right now.

Type of a scam Phishing

A person name Chris Martinese called me about a personal loan, as I was checking for personal loans from market place, he mentioned that he is calling from First Financial Bank and there is a website for that bank, which I verified too. However, he spoke exactly like authentic banks collecting data for a personal loan. Asked for personal details, SSN. After that he mentioned that they need to send money to verify my bank account and asked for my customer id and password, I said I can't give, which is when I realized this is a scam and this guy was trying to hack my back account. The person also threatened to pull my credit score down, as he has my SSN.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

So the scammer had someone from first financial bank call stating that I had been approved for a loan up to $10,000 and they ask for my information, bank account, and how much I want. I gave it to them, then they connected me to someone who says that they're named Mark Wilson saying that I was approved for the loan and they had to test my loyalty first. In order for me to do that they send me money and I have to give it back to them and I had to do that by going to a store to buy a giftcard for them and send them information of the transaction like recepts and show them the pin number on the back of the card.

I've been applying for cash loans and today I get this email from First Financial Bank saying that I am approved. I called and talked with Oscar Sullivan, SR loan officer. After he couldn't transfer the money to my bank account, he asked for my login information. I told him I was not comfortable giving him that information. He then asked if I had cashapp. I told him yes I did. He then asked me if I had $115 to cover the transfer fee. I then told him, if it's going to cost me money to get money, forget it.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

There was a person with a very bad accent calling saying they was from 1st financial bank. I told him how can I help u and he told me he was willing to give me a loan from 3k to 10k and was wondering how long it would take to repay it. I said it depended on the interest rate. During this time I looked it up on bbb and was looking into it. I let him talk while I was looking. He told me it would be $85 to repay the loan monthly for 3k. So after I let him talk I told him he wasn’t accredited to the better business Bureau and I asked him if he know what I was talking about. Then he said yes I no about bbb. So I read to him what was on the account on bbb and told him his company was an imposture. He said well let me look at that and put me on hold but actually hung up. Do not fall for this company they are scammers. Scammers scammers don’t ever give ur financial info or ss# or dL to anyone without 1st looking it up. BE AWARE EVERYONE

I have received several phone calls from First Financial Bank. The caller has an accent. I asked for his name and he gave Jerry. They called Friday and twice today. Stated I was approved for a loan up to $10,000. I had filled out an application online. He requested personal information. Wanted my social security, bank account information, address and E mail. I gave out my checking account routing number. He said he had my information on the screen. He also wanted my password to my account and I refused. I gave my social security number over the phone. The caller stated it was a recorded call. I became suspicious when he wanted me to re-deposit the funds of $500 back into their account. They would deposit $500 into my account and I would re-deposit the $500 back with them to improve my credit score.

They messaged me told me I got the loan. Than they asked for money to be paid by Google play cards after you found that a little bit later they call and tell uph they need more money before they can send you your loan. They just keep asking for more money and they never send you anything. They pray on peop and e that don't have the funds but really need the loans so they try to form what they are told on Hope's that they get the loan. I really want these people caught and have to refund the people their money. I gave proof that this is what they do to people.
