Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I applied for a loan and was approved but I had to do a loan verification where they sent me an amount that I had to send back to get the loan money. But come to find out I was getting sent bad checks that left my account in the negative about $1274 dollars. Now my account is under investigation and my debit cards have been deactivated. My paycheck is being used to pay back the negative amount but now I’m broke with no access to money until my next paycheck which is 2 weeks from now.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

This scammer operates under the name of Kevin Brown; however, he has a deep foreign accent (Indian). He claims to be representing Lending Club and that I had been approved for a personal loan up to $2500. He basically had all of my ID information including the name of my Bank. Once I verified my banking information he said a small deposit would be made into my account and once deposited I needed to verify the amount. Well, the amount deposited turned out to be roughly 1000.00. After verifying it, he then said that the remainder of the loan would be deposited after I took the following step. He wanted me to go to a Wall Mart or government approved store. when asked why? He was evasive and kept saying that the following step was necessary and that the1000.00 was advance too show that he was operating in good faith and that everything was legitimate. I then asked that he forward me a copy of the loan agreement--to which he once again insisted on me going to a WalMart or CVS. I then informed him that I would not do so and that I suspected that his actions were fraudulent. He became angry and said that I would now be responsible for the full $ 2500. I immediately went to my bank and notified them that my account had been compromised. Two days later, I get phone calls from the same number. I didn't answer. This guy doesn't' give up. tried to report him to the FTC., but due to government shut down the department is closed.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I had been applying for loans to consolidate some of my debt and wasn't tipped off when I got an email stating that my loan had been approved and that I needed to verify some details. When they asked me to return some money that they would be sending to my account to verify its authenticity, I smelled a rat and ended the call. I had already given them my username and password to my online banking and so I changed it immediately.

Type of a scam Phishing

I was contacted by Jennifer Rice from lending club saying I was approved for a loan of $8000, so I gave my info. She told me they would deposit a check into my account and I would return the money to them. That shows that I was an honest person she said

So I waited I got an email from my bank saying there is a check on hold and after it's reviewed it would be released. I got another email stating it was a fraudulent check. And my bank was sending it back. So I was charged a fee for them to send it back. I called her she said the bank was wrong. And she tried to send me another letter of approval.

Ok my husband wanted to apply for a loan so this company reached out to him and told him he could get $3,000. They him for his banking information and he gave this information to them. They called him back numerous times and said they would deposit $701 into his account, so my husband asked more questions and they informed him that once he received the funds he was to go to the Kroger supermarket that was near us between 7:30 and 8 am and he would call us with the information on how to send the money back to the company. I asked my husband why couldn't we send the money at 9:30 when the banks opened and the guy his name is (Steven Smith), was like no it had to be those times. So the next minute my husband checks his account and sure enough the $701 is in the account by mobile bank deposit. We could not read the company name or the bank information on this so called check. So something didn't feel right and my husband got on the phone and called our bank they informed us that it sounded like a scam. The man also told us about how this would help our credit by getting the $ and returning it right away. Went to the bank this morning and took care of everything, the $701 will sit in the bank until it comes back as a bad check. The bank also informed us that it looked as if the company had used Lending Club website which may be legitimate because ScamPulse.com gave them a ** rating. Just beware and don't be foolish like my husband.

They offered me a loan for 5000$. They told me I could get a unsecured loan with payments of 120$ for 45mths. I could send 6mths of my backing statements or get a loan verification card to show i could pay the 120$. They told me I would get the 120$ back. They call me everyday to see if I have the money to send them.These people out here know people are hurting for money. I feel its so hurting to see how people take advantage of people who are trying to take care of there family's. M.Harrison

I was offered a loan, they deposited a partial amount into my account, which turned out to be bad. They scammed me into purchasing Google Play gift cards. They took everything I had. When I questioned them, they threatened me saying I was stealing their money, that I'd never get another loan.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I applied on a low score credit website and was contacted within a couple of hours by this "lender". They even emailed me a Loan Approval letter. In that letter, I was congratulated on a loan for 10,000 (Which I was hoping for that), the payments were 183.00 and the loan term was 60 months. I was thrilled. I could get caught up financially, it was a dream come true. Spoke with Eric (who did not speak very good English) and was explaining to him the predicament I was in. Shortly after my phone was temporarily shut off so I used my neighbor's phone once and the apartment complex office phone 4 times. "No Problem" was all I heard. I got transferred to Kiara (again, not a great speaker of English) she said to receive my funds I needed to go get 4 -25.00 ITunes gift cards. Alarms went off in my head and before I could say anything she hung up. Was emailing John Anderson (who I believe is Eric) or whatever his name is and he said the same. When I brought up the Lending Club Website and what they do on it, he got very angry with me and that's when I knew it was false. Please people be aware. Also, I have an application in the real Lending Club which they won't look at because of these people.

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

Contacted me via text message promising Loan Approval up to 10,000 dollars. Should have realized it was a scam from the start when they asked for access to my banks web site Login and Password. Fortunately my bank, Webster bank's Fraud team had detected a red flag attached to this Loan "Company" and shut off all access to my accounts. It was a nuisance and an annoyance requiring me a trip to the bank to change my account numbers and re-open them. I will applaud the Webster Bank's Fraud team for a job well done and will be more mindful of this sort of thing in the future. I have not yet filed a police report they deposited 991.00 dollars into my account but the bank assured me that the

"Mobile" check given was bogus and untraceable and will be eventually rejected. Webster Bank's Fraud team caught this before I was scammed out of any money.
