He told me I had to go to a walmart and do a money gram transfer and make it out to a Katherine Baker located in Canaada. So I did. He told me to call him back with the ref number when I was done. I called him and gave him the ref number, plus my bank account info so my loan could be deposited by 5 the next day.
An hour later he calls and says I need to call Money Gram for security reasons, which they do randomly. He told me to tell them that this was a private issue and I knew this person.
When I called Money Gram and told them I had to call to release the money they put me on hold for a moment, got back on and said funds were transfered. I asked what the problem was and she had said that they have a list of people that are scammers and not aloud to disburse money out to. Then she asked me if i knew this person.
I then knew it was a scam and told the lady the story and she quickly was able to stop the funds and transfer back into my name.
I am so upset. Know I am worried because they have my checking acct information. I have called my bank and explained the story. I have put stop payment on anything from this Beacon place.
Also, after talking with Money Gram I called this Brad back who I was working with at Beacon and told him I explained everything to Money Gram and the money was not available for this scamer to pick up. He was very short and said he could guarinte it was not a scam but made no attempt to to insure it.
I hope something is done about this. I am glad I stopped it before it was to late. I really do feel bad for the people who lost their money to these people. Especially right before Christmas.
