Type of a scam Credit Cards

I received a debit card from this company with account and routing information at the bottom of the mail correspondence with the debit card to an address that I have not used in over a decade but still have family living at the residence. I did not use the 855 number on the mail correspondence but looked up the bank information online and called the 888 number and spoke with some an in individual that did not speak English as their first language. She asked for the card number or SSN. I told her I was not going to give her my SSN but told her I wanted to report a fraudulent account for me. She told me she could not transfer me to the fraud department nor could she help me with the account if it is not activated. I requested her full name and employee number and she refused to give me anything but her first name.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

They called me saying I was approved for a loan of 5,000. Because my credit score was under 700, I could get the loan but, would have to purchase insurance to cover incase I wasn't, able to pay the loan for whatever reason. They wanted me to deposit $250 at Wal-Mart, Moneygram, to GoBank Checking Account. I asked them why they couldn't take it off my debit account. I was told That's how it was set up. That's when I start researching further about their company. There is a web called pissed.com. people that had been told same thing for different amounts of money. I Called ScamPulse.com to ask question about this type of business. No business will ask you to put up front money, before they will give you a loan. Its definitely a scam.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I was contacted on April 5 2019 by a man identifying himself only as David and informed that I had been approved for a loan of $4500. Since I had applied online for some personal loans and he claimed to be with Go bank I didn't think much of it. Being unfamiliar with the process I was asked to pay a $145 refundable processing fee. That payment and all the rest of the payments were made by prepaid Gobank mastetcards. I was then passed off to a man identifying himself as my loan officer who's name was ricky davis. I had never taken a personal loan before so it sounded legit to me. I paid the fee and was informed that because I have bad credit I would have to purchase PPI to cover the payments on the loan if I wasn't able to. I was asked to pay a one time refundable fee of $495. I paid the fee and was assured that I would have the funds within 15 minutes. An hour later I was still waiting so I called again and was told that my credit was so bad that I would have to pay 17% of the loan to secure it, which was $875. I argued with them for a whole but was told that I would get the money back during the course of the loan. So stupidly I paid it. I asked several times before paying it if I would get the loan once that was paid and was assured several times that I would not be required to pay any more money. I paid the $875 and was told by ricky to hold for approximately 15 to 20 minutes while the money was transferred via moneygram, as I was given the choice to use moneygram, western union, or my checking account. I wasn't comfortable giving them my banking info so I chose moneygram. After waiting on hold for almost an hour I hung up and called back and was told that ricky was in a conference. I was then hung up on multiple times. Finally after about an hour and a half of calling over and over I got ricky on the phone. He informed me that I needed to speak with the moneygram department of his company to verify my details and then I could receive the money. I was transferred to a man that barely spoke English so I do not know his name. But he informed me that the loan would come in 2 different payments, requiring 2 different reference numbers and each reference number would require a $499 activation fee. After cussing him out, I spoke with ricky, who had been the one to assure me that I would not be asked for anymore money. I told him I did not have $998 and he told me that if I could come up with $350 his company would cover the rest, and that all of this money was refundable. Reluctantly I agreed. I purchased yet another prepaid gobank card for $350 and called them and made the payment. I was asked to hold for about 20 minutes. After 45 minutes I'd had enough. I hung up and called again, and was told that the underwriters of the loan were blocking the transaction from the company because the payment had to come from me. Ricky then told me that if I could pay the $149 to complete the cost of activation for one number, I could pick up that money and pay for the activation fee for the other one, and then be able to receive that money as well. So I borrowed some money and completed the $499 payment. Again I was asked to hold while the transaction was processed and after almost an hour again i hung up and called back. Ricky informed me that both numbers had to be activated before I could use either reference number. I refused to pay them anymore money. I asked for my money to be returned to me and was told that I'd have to request the loan be cancelled first. By this point I was so upset I just had to stop communicating with these Thieves. On April 8 they contacted me asking if I still wanted to proceed with the loan. I requested my money back and was told that would be a long process and that I should just complete the payment for the activation and take the loan. I refused. On April 13 I was contacted again and asked if I was going to proceed. I told them yet again that I just wanted my money back. I was told that I had 2 choices. I could pay the $499 and take the loan or I could could cancel the loan for a small fee. I told them they weren't getting another dime from me, that i just wanted my money back and was refused. So I called them in April 15 and requested my money back again. I was told the loan had expired and I would not be getting my money back. I was told that I should have cancelled the loan before April 13th, by giving them more money.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I applied for a loan online. Was contacted by who said they were from GoBank. I was approved for a loan of $5000. I just needed to purchase a GoBank prepaid card a put $250 on it to show my interest in dealing with their bank. Once I did they asked for some of the card numbers to verify everything and to put the $5000 loan on it. After about an hour of waiting I tried activating the card online and it was already activated by them and I was locked out of the card. They obviously took the $250. I tried numerous times to contact them and they act like they don’t recall anything. Trying to find the correct office to contact to retrieve my money

I told him I wanted my money back.  He told me I couldn't get that back. When I figured out it was a scam and told them so, they hung up on me.  When I went to my Bank and the Police Department, they couldn't help out.  They told me to call the BBB.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I received a phone call explaining that I was qualified for a loan up to $1500. After several minutes of information exchange and description of rates and loan payments, I was offered a loan amount of $2000 extending the payments to nine months and additional $9.00 added to the montly installments. The issue is that they require me to pay the first installment using a card account that I obtain from Walmart even before any loan funds are transferred to same account.

I searched online for a provider for a personal loan. I was called back by a rep of Go Bank.. I explained that I needed $*** and I filled forms out on line. i was told I could get that amount for 14 months at $***/mo.

Then i was told to go to Walmart and get a walmart Visa 'a gift for you card' for the amt of $***. With the rep on phone i gave him the number on the card/expiration date/sec# on back

Then i had to do the above procedure for $400.00.

Then Daniel from Go Bank told me there had been a red flag placed I R S and U S Gov't was on my SS and it would cost me $*** to get it waived. then I was told to purchase 2 google Play cards, one for $*** and second one for $***

Then it was too late to get money deposited from the bank on Fri as the bank was closed until Mon AM at 9:00.

Then I had to get a $*** Google Play card. The reason was to cover the money gram service to make the transfer of $***. Daniel is on the phone badgering me to send another $*** right now. I refused and he continued to badger. I told him my bank acct was in the negative because of him and that I had borrowed $*** from my daughter and I will not send him another dime. He kept saying I was being unreasonable and to give him until tomorrow to solve the problem and put the money in my bank.
