Jan 13, 2016
Monetary Loss: $0
We were checking on cost of a home improvement loan. This person contacted us and said they were US Bank and we qualified for a loan if $5,000. They claimed after talking to them for awhile that there was a problem. Before they could finish our loan we would have to pay off one of our credit cards to qualify. We explained we could not do that, so they said they would pay off the loan and then we would pay it back to them after the loan went through. The next morning they said we would have to go get cash from our card and send them the money back on A Pay Pal Cash Voucher. Then we would receive our loan money within an hour. Then they called me back and said I would have to pay the Florida and Okla tax and transfer fees on the loan before they could deposit the money, $211.00 I explained the first step they did didn't make since but I was not paying anything to receive a loan. They kept calling me back and insisting that I go deposit the money to them immediately !! I finally got a hold of someone at US Bank in their fraud department and they assured me that we were being Scammed.

Monetary Loss: $600.00
We got a call from these people saying we were approved for a $5000 loan. Obviously we thought that was a blessing in disguise from all the misfortune we've been going through. Well they told us we had to send them 600 to proceed with the transfer and we were to send it through a money gram. Now we are 600 in the hole with no food, or anything to live for the next 2 weeks.
I was going for a loan with 5 Min loan For 5000.00.They email me and said that it was ok . But you have to send 200.00 to ok your form. So I had to go to a CVS/pharmacy. And when I got to CVS/ she told me to call her back and she would tell me what to do. So I call her back and she told me to send money to a Tony Mendez. So I did and then call her back and said that I would have to send 300.00 . for what and she told me that my credit score was not high for this loan. So then she told me to send 287.00. To another person. So she gave me his name. Send to a mister Hicks then call her back. So I did .Then she told me that I wood have to send her 382 .00. I said for what and she told me for taxes and I told her that I have no more money to send for this and she told me that I could not get the money if I don't send this money for taxes. I call Consumer Hotline and ask them what I should I do and they told me to let you that I was being scam. I hope that someone could help me. Thank you.
I was informed of a SCAM. This individual is SCAMMING Individuals. Here is the information that I have Advance America Cash Advance Inc. 1 (786) 462 7523. They are going to attempt to put 900.00 in my account, and use Money Grams for their Cash Back. They won't answer their phone, and when they do, they are hard to hear.
