It was mid-october when I received a phone call offering a credit card with $4000.00 limit with no annual fee ever, the only thing I had to do was one time payment of $299.00 which would be wihtdrawn from my checking account by 10-31-03 and in about 2 weeks I would get my VISA credit card, this would help rebuilt my bad credit with almost nothing to do.

The people would talk fast and low. I was told as well that after a while I would be able to qualify for a master card as well and somebody would contact me in a near feature. They said that my bank branch had submitted my name to help me with my credit but they only gave my name and phone number so all what I had to do was give them my CDL #, my checking account #, my DOB, etc. I asked them if they had that information why they were asking me again, I was told that the bank didn't give the information because it was confidential but they kept saying they got my name trough the bank, I didn't want to believe first but they convinced me somehow and I ended giving my "IDENTITY" to these people.

Two or 3 days later I received another call to offer me the master card and again all what I had to do was to pay $299.00 dollars, I said I didn't have money at that moment and then I was called the next day for the same reason, I said the same thing and I asked when I had to pay that money and I was told that it had to be within 10 days after I had spoken to them and I had agreed to pay the $299.00 dollars, I said I had spoken to somebody the day before about it and then I told them I was not willing to pay no more money if this was an offer from them, I could not understand why I had to pay to have another credit card. But unfortunely it was to late to thing smart.

I had been scamed for $299.00 dolars already 1 or 2 weeks before. Up to now I have not recived any card and I decided to call First Approval at 1 866 753-5053 but the phone is busy all the time. Then I tough to contact them trough the internet and my big surprise was to find out that I been scamed by them like many other people.

Is funny but when I had finish talking to "Roger" he transfered me to his supervisor to record our conversation about my approval for them to get my money I told Peter "I hope this is not a Scam" and he just laughed. I have heard so many times about not giving any personal information to no one over the phone and I was fulled any way. The 2 weeks to recive my card have past and my money gone and my hopes gone. So I have to change my checking account, CDL, before they get more money out.

I hope I can help some how that other people feel what I'm feeling now. Please help me to get my money back.
