Company texted me and said I was approved for the loan. They said they would deposit money in my account and I would have to buy 2 iTunes cards and send them back to them in good faith. By the time I got back to them to turn it down the money as deposited into my account. Became I did not want this money and they threatened me with the fraud I got the cards and gave them the numbers on the cards by phone. A couple days later I found on that the checks they deposited were returned for nonsufficient funds. I have called and was sent to voicemail and they will not return my calls. I am now in debt with my bank for $997 of which I don't have. Please help me!Show more
I was offered an easy low-cost alternative for applying for Affordable Home Program and scammed for $1700. They did get more since this two team scam came from Los Angeles. I worked nearby where they scam many others. I was able to catch one after they pull a gun and threaten me at gunpoint. I was not harmed but it could have been worse. They are good with the website but not the payment was strange as they used Bank of America for wire transfers. I was successful in cheating them with location and were the transfer lead to almost threatening situation. How to tell if it's a scam, well simple wire transfer was asked to be done to any bank with the account they open for 30 days and close it as soon as they receive the money.Show more
I was contacted by John Good by saying he could help me get a loan of $2000 if I send $50 iTunes card. Just said to get at a Walmart and call him with the numbers on the card and he would send my 2000 by western union. Had a mtcn already for me. I was not stupid enough to buy the iTunes card and let him know that by his phone number, texted him.... he responded by very very descriptive obscene words in the texts using the F word. I have the texts saved if you need them. I want him reported for treating a customer like he did. I didn't deserve this. Help and protect me from him. NO CUSTOMER SHOULD BE SUBJECT TO ANY FOUL LANGUAGE LIKE I DID. I WANT HIM TO HAVE TO PAY ME FOR HOW HE TALKED TO ME. I HAVE THE TEXTS SAVED TO SHOW YOU IF YOU WANT FOR EVIDENCE. MAKE HIM PAY.... I NEED THIS LOAN AND MAKE HIM PAY FOR THE WAY I WAS TREATED. DONT WANT OTHERS TO HAVE TO GO THRU THIS.Show more

I'd been applying for payday loans, kept getting calls from this supposed loan place called Cash Advance. He kept asking questions about my banking account, my online banking information, logon and password information. I was having problems logging on, he said that he could reset my password.....how in the hell can he have that kind of access to my personal information. Every time I tried to log on to my bank account after that, I constantly had to keep resetting my password everytime I went to log on. This makes me think that some how, some way, these people had hacked into my bank account, and they actually called my bank pretending to be me, got a bunch of stuff credited, so I had a positive balance. Not sure how they did it, but they gained access to my bank account.Show more
