Monetary Loss: $0
I had been on line trying to get a payday loan,i have done this before,no problem.I received a phone call from the above number.I had not called them.They stated they would give me a 3.000.00 loan for 24 months.The payment would be 137.50 per month.It sounded ok.They had evidently found my in formation on the internet.From when I had completed loan applications before to some other company.The pay day loan applications.they stated they always had the money in the customers account the same day as the loan was processed.Ask if I had on line banking.Ask for that information.Stupid me gave some of it .I was in bad need of a loan,I had gotten them from different organizations before.I am sorry that I was so stupid.i do not have a good credit score,to go to my bank and get a loan.That is why I was on line.I will never do this again,no matter how in need of a loan I am.They got me to set up mobile banking.i said I always get loans through ACH deposits.They said we always have customer money to them same day.I said I do not mind waiting.But we do he said.He said the deposit would go in immediately.I am so ashamed of this.with the information I had given them they put 5,001.00 dollars into my checking account with USSA Savings and Loan in Texas.I had an external Account that they obviously stole this information.They took this money from my checking account Cumberland Valley in London ,Ky. I only had 23.00 in this account.But some how they took out the 5001.00 from Cumberland Valley that did not exist, in four separate transactions.They said I needed to draw out 2001.00 and send them a money gram from Walmart.i said why do I have to do that.they said to build up your credit score.That the remaining 3000.00 I could have,By now I knew something is bad wrong.i called my bank in Texas,sure enough it was showing that hadH 5001.00 in the account.I immediately was put in touch with the fraud department.I found out that the money had come from Cumberland Valley my other account,which only had in it 23.00.the banks and I and I did a conference call the next day.They told me to make a scam report to the police.This incident took place on January 19,2016.I have been so upset and the weather like it has been.I am just now doing the report.Thank God that I did not send them the money gram.They were getting ready to give me the address when I got wise to, the scam.While I was talking to USSA getting the fraud report submitted.The scammers beeped in 4 or 5 times.The bank said do not answer them.The banks refunded my fees.I realize I was wrong to try to get aloan over the internet,and get my information compromised.I will never do it again. I am going to have to set up new accounts and close the old ones.I have not been able to do this yet.John Turner was one of the people in the scam. phone no.646-524-4694,they said they were in New York.They had foreign accents.Don Johnson was one of the men as well. I do not have files the banks would be glad to supply them.I dealt with Tyana Roark at Cumberland 606-862-7350.She was very kind and understanding .I spoke with different people at USSA,i do not have any particular name.Their phone no. is 800-832-3724.the banks need the case number.Thank you.
After recently applying for payday loans online, I received multiple emails, texts, and phone calls from a group of "agents" calling themselves "Cash Advance America," which I just discovered listed on a WA State scam-reporting site as well, using other names, too. At least four separate gentlemen, using quite American-sounding names yet difficult to understand with their clearly East-Indian or Middle-Eastern accents, contacted me regarding first an $8 K loan and later a possible $10 K loan at an extremely low interest rate, 9.8%, FAR less than any other such company. I was told, however, that because of "governmental regulations," an "amount that high" could not be issued to me through direct deposit to my bank account. Instead, I must 1) go to Walmart, 2) wire them $300 to "demonstrate my solvency," after which I would supposedly receive a cashier's check from Walmart directly for both the loan amount + the $300 in return, supposedly right there on the spot, at the same time. When I got to Walmart, I was instructed to call them FROM THE PARKING LOT so they could "walk me through the process," beginning with asking the clerk there for a "send-cash form." The employee who assisted me, thank goodness, forbade it, pointing to a sign regarding such scams. I hung up and contacted my bank immediately, as these gentlemen knew not only my social security number but also read off both my bank account routing number and also the account number itself, to see that a hard-hold was placed on the account. Still, within a couple of days, the texts and emails began once again. After reading the report on the WA State website, I knew that this group had already taken money from a number of people using this tactic. Please let me know if I can provide you with any further information that might be necessary or helpful. I do not know where they are truly located, nor how easily they can be stopped or prosecuted. If nothing less, please see that the public is made as aware as possible. Thank you very much.
He paid off a credit card then asked to wire sherry Rickey money to Florida . I asked him for his address, he was way over in Washington l??? Needless to say I wired money 1500 dollars cash. Then he asked me for another 350$ for the fees. All this and no loan???
