I'd filed for a loan for $500 on 5/29 on line and was contacted by Cash Advance America at phone numbers (832)261-4742/ (828)813-5055 on 5/30/14 by so called *John O'Connor- middle eastern or east Indian dialect* that claimed to be a loan officer; telling me that I'd qualified for a government loan that is governed and regulated by the FTC. Additionally, I'd agreed to a $4000 loan and was told that I had to show that I can pay the loan to the company by putting $200 down towards the $4000 in which I would get back. I was then instructed to purchase a Vanilla Reload Network card and to read back the pin number in the back of the card. After I'd complied, that lead to another call to my phone telling me that I'd had 3 red flags on my ss# and to get them removed I had too pay $130 a piece as well as purchase a new Vanilla Reload Network Card. At this time, I was then switched by phone to a so called Legal Dept and talked to a so called Richard Hamilton *middle eastern or east Indian dialect* who claimed to be their attorney. After hanging up with this guy, once again, I' d purchase a new Vanilla Reload card for $390. After I'd call the pin in, I was advised via phone call from John O'Connor that the IRS said I'd had to pay a 10% tax of the $4000 which is $400 on a new Vanilla Reload Card and call back and read the pin and the $4000+ $900 funds will be transferred into my bank account within 30 minutes. After I'd complied, I'd received another call from John O'Connor telling me that I'd had to pay for insurance on the loan that cost $400 and I had to purchase a new card and he will call back when the tranfer if the loan is made to my account. After complying, I'd received another call from him telling me that the payment dept tried unsuccessfully to wire the funds on 2 ocassions and now I would have to pay $200 for a transfer fee because a 3rd attempt to my account will block them from sending and my bank from receiving. So once again I'd purchased the card and read the pin back. I'd received another call by him telling me the card was denied. I was then given phone number (909)999-7780 yo immediately call and talk to the Vanilla Reload card manager. I'd called soon after and spoked to some one that calls himself Hamilton who claimed there was a computer glitch on the card and all he could do was send me out a check for the $200. Immediately i'd call O'Connor back only yo be told that I'd to come up with transfer fee and to call him back when I do. Also he told me that I will risk losing my money invested if I don't come up the money by 6/9/14.
Note: transactions made between 5/31-6/7/14.
Note: Called the 800 number on the back of card only to be told that the money was taken off mountain time and there's a;$0 balance.
Note: called the (909)999-7780 number off peak hour to find out that the voice mail states Richard Hamilton from USA Payday Loan on the voicemail. When I'd called peak hour the voice tells me that answer the phone that
I'm called the Vanilla Reload Network refund dept.
