My husband and I were searching online for "BAD CREDIT LOAN" lenders that would help us get some kind of personal loan that will would help us get ahead with our bills and to have a little more spending money for the holidays for our two boys. So my husband filled out a loan for the company that called themselves Interline Financial.
About two days later I received and emailresponse from info@interlinefinancial that was titled loan documents. I open up the email and a representative by the name of Kevin Smith said that I was approved for a $10,000.00 loan and since my credit was not that great I had to put down a collateral payment of $1500.00 and the loan amount would be deposited directly into my checking account within 24 hrs upon receipt of the money.
My husband and I did not have the $1500.00 to send to Interline Financial, we talked it over again and decided that we would go ahead and borrow the money from someone and then send my husbands whole paycheck to meet the $1500.00.
We went ahead and sent the money by Western Union Money Gram addressed to a man named Dwayne Henry addressed to Canada. After sending the money my husband called Kevin Smith with the confirmation number and confirmed that the money will be in my checking acount the following day and his response was, "yes sir, you will have the $10,000.00 in your account at 11:00 am tomorrow.
The next day at exactly 11:00 am we checked our checking account, with our fingers crossed, and lord and behold the money was not in our checking account. Both of us extremely furious, we called kevin Smith. Kevin Smith had told us that an insurance payment was not included in the collateral payment and we needed to send another $750.00 and my loan would be on hold until we sent the rest.
We informed Kevin that we sent him all of the money that we had and we did not have anymore. He asked if we wanted a refund and we just hung up the phone on him.
I went to search bug and looked up Interline Financial and they are not locateded in Maryland. Their is and address of 7 Saint Paul but no suite 5. I tried to do a search on the 1-866-249-7785 and it came up not found.
Now realizing that we should have stuck with our gutt feeling we realized that we just got scammed. I immediatley called Western Union to see if I could trace the money grams. They gave me the locations in Canada that the money was picked up at and it was picked up by a male individual.
Then We called the FBI and made a report.
As soon as I gave him the name "Interline FInancial" they immedialty new who I was talking about. They are a well known gang of people who live in Canada not in Baltimore, MD. The 1-866-249-7785 they are using is a prepaid cellphone that is why it can not be traced. Most of the people play roles as being several different people. Kevin Smith and Dwayne Henry is the same person. Be aware..... Do not get "scammed" the same way we did. If you think your are making a wrong decision chances are you probably are!!!!!
YOUR GUT INSTINCTS ARE ALWAYS RIGHT!!!!!!!!
