My husband received an email stating he had been approved for a loan for $10,000. He had them fax a copy of the loan agreement, to go over. It appeared to look legit, so he filled it out and faxed back. They told him he would need to pay a collateral pmt of $1000 due to his credit. This lady went by Sharon Stone. She transferred him to, the so called, credit mgr. Henry to get the name of the person and place to wire the money to. It was wired to Ontario, Canada. When he asked why Canada, Henry told him that's where the loan officer was located. Once this was paid, he told us the $10,000 would be deposited in our acct by the end of business day. Well, it wasn't in there, so he called this Sandra Stone back and she said they would need another $500 for insurance, that his credit score had dropped. If we wanted to cancel the loan, it would take over two weeks to get our $1000 back. So, I went and wired them another $500 and was told by Henry, once again, that the $10,000 would be deposited by end of business day. This didn't happen, so we knew we had been scammed. When we called them, the calls kept going to vm, they wouldn't answer. We are devastated by this, and upset that we didn't follow our gut feeling. They know they can prey on people that have credit issues, and make it all sound legit. I filed a report with BBB on them and will go farther to give them what they deserve.

  • Thomas, I'm sorry this happened to you as well. I checked the phone number today, and it has been disconnected...I wondered how long it would be before they did that. I hate that we fell for this sorry scam, really sad, when we only want better for ourselves, and end up traumatized and in worse shape than before. I still can't figure out why it shows on the BBB that they aren't accredited with them, but have an A rating??? This makes no sense. That is the only reason I agreed with my husband, to get the loan. There were no complaints against them with BBB. I didn't think to look further online, after seeing that. If you haven't filed a report with them, please do, I did and they are still waiting on a response from them, and of course they wont get one.
    Another good place is to file one with Internet Crime Complaint Center. The more people we get, the greater the chance, of an Attorney taking the case and prosecuting them. I would love to watch this happen...I know they will get what they deserve.
