Venturafinancial are scammers
Sep 9, 2019
Monetary Loss: $0
Got a call from a guy at a Ventura financial named Ethan Williams (the guy has a heavy Indian accent )that said I applied for a loan and I had been approved for a $30,000 loan for 5yrs 3.28% interest. Two days later they sweetened the deal and said it was actually for $40,000 that i had been approved for and they needed some paperwork which I sent like a dummy. The next day they called said I was approved for even more money $44,000 over 7 yrs 3.58% interest, but before I could get the loan I needed to pay $509.14 for insurance/ lawyer to Brightway Solutions LLC by money order and once paid I will receive the $44,000. It felt too good to be true, I did some research and found Brightway Solutions LLC was used as a place to send money for people being scammed by a company called Idirect Finance. So I used a number for Idirect I found online and asked for the guy at Ventura financial (Ethan Williams) that had been calling me and they got him to come to the phone I told him I knew they were scammers and to never call me again and signed up for LifeLock two minutes later.
They kept me on the phone fore 20 minutes. First they asked me why I needed a loan and that they would approve me for 30,000 regardless of bad credit. He then said he would transfer me to someone and it seemed he literally walked down the hall and put his brother on the line. Please keep in mind these are Indian reps who asked for my address and didnt know which time zone I was in. The second person confirmed my address and phone number again and asked if I wanted 30,000 and If I didnt I wouldn't qualify? I stayed on the line for fun...they said within 30 minutes I'd receive an email requesting paperwork like a photocopy of my ID, a utility bill and 3 months paystubs. Do not trust this company. If you Google the address on their website it comes up as an apartment complex. Keeps getting better...
