I am a disabled combat veteran.
A lady named Brenda Cox emailed me telling me that I was approved for a loan depending on circumstances she even sent me paperwork for a loan contract that seems legit. After agreeing to the loan and sending everything back I was then confronted with them telling me I needed to urgently pay $560 via the Western Union due to me not having good credit and that would cover the first three installments of this $8,000 loan I was approved for. Against my better judgment I did it using the Western Union after she gave me a whole spiel on how people give bank accounts and credit cards that overdraft and they get screwed over and other people commit fraud on them... Irony at its best! Then she comes back the next day and says that the lender did a reevaluation of the loan and due to my bad credit and high-risk I need to make an additional $360 payment which I did even though I knew I shouldn't have. Then again they come back and ask for more money so I need to help pay for insurance on the loan cuz it's so high risk and at that point I obviously knew that I was being scammed.
