I was contacted by Mr. James Harris. He informed me I was approved for a secured $5,000 loan. He told me I needed to put $780 down and the next day the $5,000 would be wired into my account. I western unioned the money to some lady in Spain. Mr. Harris was so convincing I didn't see the scam coming. My husband and I had a bad gut feeling about this but we thought this could never happen to us. The next day I was in the emergency room and I was contacted my Mr. Michael Dunn. He informed me we needed another $680 to secure the loan. I was in hysterics when I was talking to him because I had given him my whole paycheck the day before. I have a nine month old at home and told him I needed the money for formula and diapers. He apparently didn't care and told me I would get a refund on Oct 9th. I couldn't wait that long so I convinced my grandma into giving me the extra $680. She needed the money for taxes but I assured her she would get it back on Monday. Well, needless to say I never got the money. Now I owe my grandma $680 and I am out the extra. Thankfully I am in the army so they helped out. I have contacted the FBI and JAG is working on finding them. I know the money is gone forever, but it is just depressing to think that these people pray on desperation.
