I have been scammed by a fake loan company

  • Monetary Loss: $400.00
We were contacted by a Chris Williams about applying for a loan. We were told that our credit wasn't high enough to get the amount we needed. They would send us a smaller amount of $200.00 and we were to send it back to them via Google Play cards which would help build up our credit. We did this twice. The first time they sent us $200.00 and the second time they sent us $950.00. We sent them a total of $340.00 worth of Google Play cards. We didn't realize until after the second deposit that they weren't sending it direct deposit but by stolen checks. When I realized it I called my bank to let them know. They contacted the fraud department. I'm still dealing with the the bank about it. I wasn't sure what else to do because this is the first time it's happened to us which is why I'm reporting the scam to you. I don't want it to happen to anyone else.

  • Monetary Loss: $0
He wanted me to purchase a $150.00 Goggle Play and call him back once it was activated then I would get a loan for $7500.00. When I said I changed my mind he told me I could not change then he made an insulting remark by asking me if I take weed. I said a few things to him and he told me he would keep calling me at lease ten times today I told him this is number one that I'm requesting he don't call me anymore and to clear my records I'm not interested in any loan from him or his company then I stated not to call anymore to clear my records and I'm not interested in any loan or anything from he or his damn company (VERY LOUDLY). Then he hung up.

Loan scam uses google play cards and itune cards for payments only

  • Monetary Loss: $1,100
I was called told I had a loan by Patrick Miller, they sent me the loan papers, I got a letter from David Mathrews Manager, welcoming to the company, how great it was to have me as a customer, When I was called by Patrick Miller, he told me because my credit score was low I would have to pay the first months payments showing I would pay the loan payment, I ask for a few days being I didn't get paid until the 2nd of the month, I wanted someone to look at the loan papers, on Fri, June 1st. Mr. Miller called me, I agreed to send the payment, I thought at the time maybe it was normal being my score was low, except the only in some kind of cards we didn't have in our area. So they told me to go buy the google play cards, take a picture of it and send it through messager, which my payment was 138.00 a month, but I ended up having to pay 145.00 cards. Then I get another call I needed to buy 250 dollars in google cards, this was for insurance coverage, I pay that, I had to hire a driver to come get me and take me to the store and back home. I kept being told each time the money would go into my bank account. Then I get another call saying the needed 500 dollars to prove I would make the payments, I had bought 250,00 in google cards, then one of the cards was messed up, I was told to go buy Itune cards, that the google cards would not go through. I went and got 250 in Itune cards, each time I made a payment it was always more money, Then I get a phone call after the 500 had been paid, we couldn't put your money into your bank account. The bank won't take the deposit, I called the bank they said there was no attempt to put any money into my bank account. Then they called said they would send the money western union but the money would be divided up into small amounts, I was told all the money I paid in I would be returned. Then I get another call saying they put the money into the bank of Canada. But to be able to get the money into my bank account I would have to pay 500 dollars before the Bank of Canada would put the money into my account, This went on for a week, I kept telling them I didn't have the money, that the money they got was what I paid for my bills with. I told them I never put off paying my bills, but I did thinking I would get the loan money, because of health issues I was not able to keep going out. Plus it was costing me money to hire people to carry me back and forth. I realize I wasn't going to get the money by paying the last 200 dollars, the manager David Mathews kept telling me I could come up with the money, I was trying to find ways to pay for the cards, because I had no money, but they didn't care, I was told to pay 200 dollars David Mathews would pay 300 dollars he happen to have in his pocket. then I kept saying I didn't have the 200 I was very upset, he told me just to send 150.00 he buy the google cards, well after I sent 200 dollars I realize then and there I was not getting the money. I was told the next mourning they received the 200 they were processing the papers right then at 11.40 in the mourning. Then I tried to call Mr. Mathews, he was in a meeting. I called back to be informed he was gone on Vacation for 10 days, so if I wanted the money I needed to come up with 300 dollars. which I didn't have, and was not sending any more, I was trying to buy the cards on line was not able to get them, I wasn't able to go out to buy the cards, due to the health issues that were happening, I told them I could not wait 10 days, that I needed the money then, that they kept wanting more and more money, The Peter Scott said he was owner and over David Mathews who was suppose to be the manager. I didn't know what to do, I don't have the money to pay my bills, I was trying to get another loan, but not able to. These men have done nothing but lie to me, I didn't know where to turn to, I am broke, didn't know how I would pay my bills, I had a light bill coming up, they would cut my lights off, they didn't care, I do not believe David Mathews was on vacatiion, it sounded like him I was talking to at times. These people are liers, they do not care what shape your health is in, that you can't pay your bills, all they want is more and more money, how they able to get money out of google cards and Itune cards I do not know. I finally broke down and told someone what was happening, I could no longer handle being treated the way I was being treated, I keep getting text message it be 10 days it be 9 days the money will be in your bank account, I broke down and made a police report, felt like a fool for doing all of this, not realizing it was a scam, that people were scamming people with these cards, I done all I can do, to have to admit to your family what you had done and to the police, it one of the hardest things I ever done, no one cares, They are never going to put the money into my bank account, They got all the cards I sent, I do not believe the google cards they said were no good weren't any good. Or that I will receive my money I paid out of my pocket back. No one wants to admit what stupids things you have done, you just as guilty as they are buying the cards and sending to them, I had to take pictures of the cards and send them through messages, They gave me a hard time, I at the point I do not know what to do. But I don't want to see someone else to do through the same thing I had done, it is not legal to buy these cards and send them to other people, I know in 8 days I will not see the money, that they scam me. I have done all I can do but try to make others aware of what had been done to me. I hope this will help someone else if I kept up paying it would have been close to 1,600 dollars. Please be careful don't believe these people, if they are a real company I do not know, yes they have a site on the internet, RAPID PAY FINANCES, DON'T FORGET THERE NAME. Beware this is a warning to all victims, there are a lot of people taken advantage of every day, I should have known better than to buy the first cards, I was a fool, believing they would put the money into my account, I would have the loan I needed. I don't have a loan, I don't have any money, I bought cards that were not legal. As long as I would have been willing to keep sending them the more they would take, oh, but Mr. Mathews did buy the three hundred dollars in google cards, but they weren't ativated. So if I wanted the money I needed to come up with the money or wait until he gets back from his vacation, but what surprised me he was willing to buy the cards to help me out, and was going to be there the next day, he had enough gas in his car to go and come to work, but all the sudden he on vacation. No he not on vacation he didn't buy the cards, if he had they would have been made good.

  • Jun 11, 2018
  • Monetary Loss: $150
I was told that I was sending a $150 refundable application fee. After I decided that I didn’t
After I decided that I didn’t like the terms of the loan and would like to cancel my application I was given the runaround and then finally told that I must hire a lawyer and have them call within 30 minutes. I just want to cancel the application and get my $150 refundable application fee back.
