 On November 6, 2013 I returned a call to American Financial Services and was left a message one week prior to this date

stating that I was approved approved for a loan for up to 10,000. (personal unsecured loan).  I told Steve Harris at 407-608-4084 that I depise scams of any nature. I was told to wire 104.00 to a vanilla reload card and then call and then the accounting department would verify the bank routing and checking account number and I would have the approved amount wired and the amount was never wired. I called the next day and was told that the FTC (Federal trade Commission) would not allow them to in Eric Jones words. Steven Harris was the counselor according to Erick Jones. I was cautious in loading the 104.00 but I did a quick check and the company did not come up with any negatives. I joined United Lending a firm in NYC that gaurantees a loan to the applicant or the membership fee of $39.00 would be refunded.

I applied online and I have been contacted by payday companies who want money up front and knowledge of my bank account before wiring the funds. This Fraud. I am very careful with my bank account informaition and usually enter a prepaid Western Union Meta Bank account and routing number but not a bank account number. I told Erick Jones today to go screw himself and that I would report his company to the attorney state general. How would he like that.

My goal is to rebuild my credit. I depise the Northeast. The FBI and the Attorney State Generals office can handle this company and the staff, reminds me of the movie "The Sting." I was a funding specialist in NYC for two years so I know how the business works. I even told him that. He wanted the 104.00 on the vanilla reload and told me the reason was my personal credit was low and I told him why that I was rebuilding my personal credit from a discharged Chp 7 from Security Fraud in 1998. That was the justification. This company is screwing people and scamming people.

I told him the FTC does not stop loans to personal customers and that he was full of s**t. He said the Government has a freeze on my bank account number, I told him bulls*, I just made a deposit yesterday to it. Screw this company.

Florida is the state and Orlando is the town.
