I have been scammed by Daniel Stewart claiming to be with E-Loan, Inc.

  • by: Niceflyer
  • #37268
  • Aug 05, 2017
  • Monetary Loss: $1,577
I was told that I was approved for a $10,000 personal loan. Mr. Stewart told me to send two Walmart Gift Cards - one for $500 and the other for $524 so those funds could be used to have Western Union send me the money. On July 10, 2017 he claimed he sent the money to Western Union and gave me tracking numbers 780256XXXXX and 256182XXXX. I went to WU but was told there were no such tracking numbers with money for me. Later he directed me to send two more Walmart Gift cards for $260.50 each so that I could show Western Union I had 5% of the loan amount. I sent that then he said WU refused to send the funds saying I was supposed to send two cards for $250.60 each. He demanded that I send two more cards. I am a totally disabled combat veteran and I do not have income - only disability compensation. I could not send more. He insists that I will get the loan when I send the money. Later I checked with Walmart - and found all of the money on the gift cards was used to purchase items from Walmart related companies - the money was not given to Western Union. Later I spoke with Western Union headquarters and was told that they do not accept Walmart Gift Cards, they did not ask for anything related to my having 5% of the loan amount, the charge for sending the loan amount would be $316 for each tracking number. They also confirmed that no funds were sent by Stewart or E-Loan, Inc. on July 10, 2017 as he claimed. They also explained that if money had been sent and WU withheld sending it, the funds would still show on the tracking numbers. Then I found a phone number for E-Loan, Inc. in New York City and called it - I learned that a few years ago E-Loan, Inc. had connected with a principal company and that E-Loan, Inc., is no longer active. I was also assured that Daniel Stewart is not involved with E-Loan, Inc. or the other company. I have demanded that he return my $1,577.00 that I sent but he has refused to discuss that. The Walmart Gift Card numbers are as follows: $500 on July 8th: 6134 6149 7829 0616 PIN# 1706; $524 on July 8th: 6136 9310XXXXXXXX PIN# XXX; $276.50 on July 11th: 6134 6149 XXXXXX PIN# 6098; and $276.50 on July 11th: 6134 6149 XXXXX PIN# XXXX. Walmart confirmed to me that all of those funds were used by individuals at Unlock Gadget, Inc., Beach Camera, Weekly Closeouts and Avallax. As a disabled combat veteran I desperately need to get my $1,577.00 back as quickly as possible. Steward claims E-Loan, Inc. is in Lower Manhattan but his phone numbers are in Nassau on Long Island.

Hi

I applied for a loan from these people on the 12th of last month they said I must pay R1000 for a collatiral reciept before they can proceed and the gave me an account to wich i did they said everything was set and the loan wil be transfered i followed up everyday to find out what is going on and then they won't reply me till the next day then they sent me a proof of payment and said the money whas paid I waited two days and the money whas not in they said the bank went offline and it could not be processed they will do the payment again and still i did not recieve anything when i followed up again this morning they said I must pay another R1000 for a new reciept and if i did not they won't pay the loan. When you call the numbers it goes to voicemail so you can't even phone to find out what is going on. Someone needs to shut these bastards down because they are a scam making their riches on other peoples money and giving them empty hope.

Someone called my mother today and gave her an 800 number claiming to be from Duke Energy (our power company)saying her payment method is faulty and they haven't received the last 2 months so they have to cut her power, asking her for the last two amounts we've payed, the last 4 of the social and asking for a western union payment. I called Duke and it's a lie, there's no two months owed and no shut off order, just a scammer targeting seniors. Don't believe it if it happens to you, she did have our name and address, the number she gave us is: (800) 553-8208 Claims to be someone named Alicia Parra

I've got one better! Hello, I do apologize for the misfortune on your behalf, but do not worry, you are able to scam them back. I have just obtained $982.00 in free money. Everything that was mentioned in the complaints was exactly the same process I had to go through. However I knew it was a scam right away because they would send the money to be in your available balance which technically does not belong to you. So what they do is they send you a wired transfer, which the bank, out of mercy, will allow you to get a small amount until the account can be verified, giving you a small available balance. In my case that was $100. I was told to take that money and buy an itunes gift card to "verify" a transaction using their accounts. Now I asked myself, "No that can not be right." So I asked my girlfriend to do some scam researches and she stumbled across this page, fortunately enough, to back up my suspicions. What they do is send you money that is on hold, or pending, until verified, have you purchase a card with the $100 available or whatever your case is so as soon as you spend it you will be negative $100 in your account. But it will not show up as negative until the agent/rep pulls the initial transaction out. Meaning you never had the funds to begin with, but thinking you did becase it shows as an avilable balance, spend the $100 which makes it like an overdraft. This will in most cases result in the actual amount spent plus fees. Now what I did was I went and bought an itunes card for $15 and put the remaining $85 on an American Express loadable card. I told them that the lady at the store charged me the entire $100 on just a $15 itunes card. So I sent them a pic of the verification code and the receipt of the purchased items, with a simple adjustment (I took a Q-tip, wet it lightly, and erased the second item that was listed on the receipt, so it looked like $100 was spent on only one item). I took a picture of the recipt and showed him proof that i was "ripped off." So he asked me to go back and talk to the manager, which "i did" (my girlfriend is a great actor, which i now question her actual satisfaction in bed, lol just kidding). My girl and I staged a fake arguement between myself and her, the "manager", with the whole "the customer is always right" scenario and it worked. They believed I was ripped off so they asked me to just take the $882 still pending in my account, and once it posted fully to my account, send it back tomorrow for a $2500 loan, when the loan was initially only $1000. So all in all, what they intended to do was put money in my account temporarily, have me buy a gift card worth $100 that they take the money off of, then withdraw the entire loan amount that was pending before it could actually post to my account. But they didn't anticipate my $15 itunes card idea, so they didn't get the whole $100 profit they normally get. That, combined with my charade about getting ripped off where I bought the gift card at, made them decide to go ahead and let the remaining $882 post to my account, thinking that I would send it back to them tomorrow in the hopes of a $2500 loan. Funny how things work right? So they let the transaction go through, and now I have their money and they can not do anything about it. I closed out my bank account after pulling all the money out. I have to say, I'm not a scam artist but after I read a lot of the complaints I felt bad and wanted to do something about it. So there you go! I'm sure if enough people read this, they will stop eventually. And believe me it was no risk. You just have to wait until the funds are in your actual balance, not just your available balance. That is the most important part. BUT WAIT, ALSO REMEMBER THIS: THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS TAKE ME OFF THE FUCKING CALL LIST LIKE I ASKED TO BEGIN WITH.... NOT ALL OF US ARE IGNORANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GOOD LUCK.

Regarding Speedy Cash. . . .I too was contacted by a Joanna Wilson stating I had been approved for a $5000 loan. This happened two days AFTER I had been scammed by Richard Hurley. I became suspicious with this call and went to the Speedy Cash website. This is a legitimate loan company but the telephone number was different from the one I had received from Joanna Wilson. I called the 800 number and spoke with a very nice woman who assured me this Joanna Wilson was a fraud. I forwarded the loan papers that I had received to the real Speedy Cash and they told me they would never have used this type of format and more importantly they were not even licensed to give out loans in my state! As desperate as I am for a loan, I will never fall victim to one of these scams again. If it sounds too good to be true it is. A reputable loan company will NEVER ask for money up front.
