Ben Keller was contacted by my employer for a loan. My employer and Ben had been going back and forth and ultimately my boss was approved for a $50,000.00 loan and not a $60,000.00 loan. He did all of the paper work, it seemed like it was on the legit. Then he was approved and had to Western Union a $500.00 application fee. Then He had to send another $500.00 Insurance fee(supposed to be $1000.00 because it was an unsecured loan. My employer had many conversations with this guy over the phone. He was assured he would be getting funded yesterday (Monday) after more emails Ben said he needed to send the other $500.00 today. Well he didnt, because hes been emailing and calling him all day and he doesnt answer or respond to emails all of a sudden. I had been telling my employer it was a scam all along and that we couldnt afford to keep sending money. But my warnings went on deaf ears. [continued below]....
..... I wanted to believe with all my heart this guy was going to fund my employer so we could continue building our business, but looks like we were scammed after all. I have emailed This Ben guy and still no response. I believe he is associated with Brad Konkel as his email address states it.Not really sure what to make of all this. We could keep sending out warnings but this is not going to stop this predator.(scammer) He will just keep assuming new names and new websites and keep doing this. I just want this guy to refund my employers money or do what he said he was going to do, but it seems as of right now he is M.I.A

they are good at scamming

AUTHOR: Almost scammed - ()

Boy  they dont give up do they?  This guy calls me and says he works for Keller Brokerage and that they can guarantee me a loan> I said ok  show me the money.. I will not now nor ever send money upfront for a loan. I said take it out of the back end. He was I will prove we are legitiamate and get you the loan I said ok "DO IT. 2 days later another man calls and says he is Ben Keller (now he sounded black and not white like the supposedly pic on the website shows) He said I will call you next weds and we will discuss your loan. I said OK do that. I really dont expect a loan but I will drag them along if i can  856-368-9803 is the number they have been calling me from.

He almost scammed me too. My husband was like pay the money. I tried to call and got a gravely voiced voice mail. Did not sound at all like wha you would think from the picture. Glad I did a little more research. Money is to hard to come by to be scammed. THanks for posting the scam online. You saved me my money

#4 UPDATE Employee

Loan

AUTHOR: Ed P - ()

Update     Yesterday I was told by Ben that I was guaranteed the loan if I paid $374 in attorney fees he even made a bet with me for 1000 that I would be funded by 4 PM CST . Guess what that never happened after I sent $340 down there for attorney fees he emailed once for western union number and I gave him number and have not herad from him since. No response to 15 emails and forget about phone on web site the number goes to voicemail asap.

I would suggets to all readers stay far and clear from this company I do not know how his web site stays up as he will not answer you only if there is a western union number he needs. If anything else stay away Ben is a scammer I do not know why he talks a good story and seems like a good guy but that is all a show.

Do not I repeat Do not trust this guy testamonials on web site have to be fake because he did not help me and ran of with $1874 shame on me yes but people beware this company is scaming people.
