Paul Turner tried to scam me.

  • Monetary Loss: $0
I received an email from Cash advance america, and in the email it stated that I was approved for $10,000, so I called the number that was provided in the email to verify if the loan was a scam or not. I spoke with a guy who has an Indian accent name Paul Turner
he told me that it wasn't a scam, so after he told me all of that, he asked for my bank information so I gave him my bank information, but before I gave him my bank information I withdraw all of the money from my account, after that he told me in order for him to deposit the money into my account I would have to verify that I have $300 to make my first monthly payment towards the loan, he also said I need to go to CVS Pharmacy or Walgreens to put $300 on a gift card so that he can verify the money, but I didn't do that cause that sounded stupid of what he was was telling me. My mom didn't raise no fool meaning I'm no fool to fall for his stupid scam.

  • Monetary Loss: $2,000
Had to send I tune payments on the application. Had to send I tune payments to pay insurance on the loan.Had to send I tune payments cause I tune payments sent the day they requested them were late before they asked and so I had to pay a couple hundred dollar fine.Now they want 400 more for a reason they have not disclosed or I can opt out of the loan for a few hundred more.Unless I'm past the date then I have to pay a fine on the opt out. I think that's the way it goes.

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.
