I got myself in a serious financial bind. So, I searched the Internet for Personal loans...many websites popped up but there was one that catch my attention. It stated Freedsmen Financial Resources...approval guaranteed. Me, being so naive, I did not realize it was a scam.
Anyway, I filled out the online application at work and submitted it. The next day, a so-called Senior Consultant by the name of Mary Chambers contacted me through email. Again being so naive and desperate, I called her immediately. She told me that I was approved for the loan. She informed that I note that I only wanted a $3,000 loan and the least amount they could approve was $5,000. She also informed me that there were 3 options to secure loan since my credit was so bad.
1. I had to get two people with a credit score of 700 or higher. 2. I had use some time of collerateral in the amount of the loan. 3. Purchase an insurance policy to secure the loan. My best option was option 3.
I did not have the money so I borrowed the money from a very good friend of mine. Mary Chamber informed me to send $800 to her to secure the loan. I told her that it would cost me $59.99 to send that type of money. She waived the fee and told me to send $728.00; that way I would have enough money to send. However, I did not waive the ID.
When I called her the next day, July 5, 2007 to follow up on the process...I note that Ms. Mary Chambers was a little upset with me that I did not waive the ID. She told me that I was suppose to send the money to a Sinon Welsh and to waive the ID.
She gave me Western Union 800 number to call and waive the ID because Mr. Welsh was out in the field and it would be a couple of days before I could receive my loan.
Again, being desperate, I called Western Union waived the ID because I wanted to get my money by Friday to pay off some debt. After that I did not hear anymore from Mary Chambers. Phone buster informed me that Mary Chamber, Debra, Michele, and their acomplice all run this phoney business by cell phone number. America, please be aware of these con-artist. Do not send any money to anyone in Toronto, Ontario...I'm sure they will be changing their names. I email Mary even now and then just to mess with her head. I forwarded some to the article I read about them from other victims from this website. It is really a shame. Now, I am in worser predicament that I was previously...only because now I owe my girlfriend $860.00. America...please be careful!!!
