I was called on 08-14-2012 from this company Cash Advance America that if I wire them $200.00 then they would wire me $800.00 for a loan and they told me what it would cost each month. So I told them that I am a 71 yr. old woman on Social Security and am in need for that cash and asked them if this is a scam? They said "of course not". He told me how to fill out the form and it was to India! I had him on the phone the whole time and asked again if this is a scam seeing this is going to India? He said NO. So I sent it and got the receipt. I called him back in about 10 to 15 min. as he said because I should have my $800.00. He said the "server" is down. Then he said I would not get my money til the next day or maybe that evening. I never got my money. He called me at 8:30am on 08/15/2012 and he said I cannot get my $800.00 because I did not use my "middle initial" on the sender application! He said The Federal Reserve Bank has my $200.00 on hold! He said to wire him another $200.00 and put my middle initial in there and I would get $1200.00! I told him I don't have $200.00 and no one I know has that money. Then he hung up on me. I spoke with Allen Parker and a Craig Miller. Now I know this is a scam and am out $200.00 plus $10.00 to send the money. I told him this morning that was my rent and I will probably be evicted and have no food. I am at my wits end!

No I don't have any family to help. My friend tried to tell me this was a scam but I was so desparate I would not listen to her til it was too late. Hard lesson to learn.

Sorry you fell for this old scam.

AUTHOR: Ken - (USA)

Your money was sent by wire (untraceable) and is out of this country and is lost.

Asking if this was a scam was a waste of time....what answer did you expect?
NOBODY but the scammers have your money "on hold."

They are theives and do this every day.

It is illegal to take upfront money to get a loan.
"I told them that I am a 71 yr. old woman on Social Security and am in need for that cash and asked them if this is a scam?"
BTW, I'm also 71, on Social Security and would NOT fall for this Ripoff.  Also, how would this money, IF you had received it have helped?  Paying it back would have put you further in the hole.

Are you able to get family to help you with your financial decisions?
