I was called on my cellphon on 08/01/14 by a man who said his name was Oscar Alexander and he represented Capital One Bank as a Loan Officer.

He said he was returning my request for a loan, as I had sent out a request to this particular bank.

He said I was eligible for a $3,000.00 loan.

In order to start the process I had to pay $40.00. He told me to purchase a prepaid Visa (PayPower) card and load the money on it.

Then it was an insurance fee on the loan for $180.00

Then it was an IRS tax holding for $300.00

Then a closing fee for $240.00 which I refused to pay.

I demanded a contract E-mailed to me for authenticity of the transaction.

After 3 so-called failed attempts to my gmail account, he successfully sent it to my iphone.

The contract had the Capital One logo at the top, and an address in York, PA.

I looked up the address and discovered that it belonged to a First Capital Federal Credit Union.

I then headed straight to the Police Dept. and registered a case against the scammers.

Good catch!

AUTHOR: Mike Miller - ()

This is a popular type of scam now and ripoff report is littered with similiar reports - the telltale sign is when they ask you to load a prepaid card. No legimate lender, especially one with the resources of Capital One, would ask for such a thing. Congratulations on avoiding it and reporting it to the police. Unfortunately, in my experience police dismiss such a thing as a civil matter, but it never hurts.
