Lending Club Corporation Anthony Chase- accounting department Company promised they were legit, and would help me obtain a loan, and they would help me retrieve all the funds from the other "imposter" loan companies who stole Green dot money Paks San Fransisco California
After being a victim of the Green Dot Money pak scams by other so called loan companies, I continued to receive phone calls stating that I was approved for loans, I declined help from anyone else, it seemed like all the so called help I was receiving, was doing nothing but putting me further in debt. I finally took the call from a company named Lending Club Corporation, and Mr. Anthony Chase sent me several emails and attached links to his company and they were very good reviews.
I was very impressed and so was my friend. He agreed to loan me the money for $198. [continued below]....
I was out and since I had so many people waiting on repayment, I stopped and bought a coffee and I waited outside my bank for the deposit. A then called me with the transfer confirmation, WC890651738, and confirmed the amount $8698.00 will be transferred into your account XXXxXxXxX and I said yes, he said once I input and verify this information it can not be changed. I went inside the bank to verify the information, just to make sure I gave all the appropriate information. I did not want to take a chance of anything else doing wrong, he told me he would call e in about 10 minutes and verify I received the funds. I sat down and talked to the branch manager and waited patiently (not really patient) after what had already happened to me.
Anthony called me and said he was getting a transmission error, that the bank information was incorrect. I spoke to the branch manager, and she again verified that she had given the correct information. He said something has to be wrong, can we call the customer service line for the bank?. I told him I could not do a three way on my phone, he said he would go to another phone call me back so we could do a three way with customer service. He did indeed call me back, and customer service from my bank and said that he was having trouble doing a transfer and asked what is the proper routing number. She asked hi if he was doing a domestic or international transfer he said, domestic, she told hi he needed a different number.
The number was different than the number I gave and the number the branch manager gave. She swore that this number was the only number she has ever used and does not know why customer service would give another number. I started to hyperventilate and he said he verified the information with me, because he would not be able to change it. I had 2 options now, cancel whole process, wait 4-6 days for a refund, or get a Western Union. I said what would that cost and he said 2-4 hundred dollars. I said I had to call him back, because at this point I was ready to vomit, I then got in my car and I called customer service back to investigate the issue, why the 2 different stories.
My customer service informed me, that they were as confused as me and they got someone from the wire transfer department to help both of us understand what was going on. The woman from the wore transfer department told us, they had been having trouble and have offered this alternate number to help get these transfers through. I the being sick to my stomach asked why this information had not been shared with the branch managers at least she could not explain, only give me her sincere apologies and hope things get better for me. I called Anthony and asked him what would be the process for Western Union, since I have never dealt with them I has no idea.
He said I would have to agree to the transfer and commit to the funds for it, and I would get my finds immediate. I called my friend and told him what was going on and he offered to help the best he could. I told Anthony to go ahead and do it, he gave me a total of $434.90, and read the terms that I had to agree to for the transfer, I agreed, went and got yet one more Green Dot Money pak for the Western Union. His company then offered me a $1000.00 eBay card to be used online only. They could not give me the funds for the western union back, but valued me for being a patient customer, and wanted to make sure they have happy customers. How , at this point, would I ever think he was not being sincere with me. He seemed to do everything to help me.
He then said he would call me back with the Western Union tracking number. I went to the Western Union in my area and waited for my call. After almost 40 minutes he called and said, since it was way after work hours, (8:00 pm) the system has went down for the nightly back-up, and would be down for 4 hours, and he I put my email address so that when it came up, the system would generate a tracking number and email it to me at approximately 12:30 am and I could try to find a place to pick up the funds or I could do it first thing in the am. This all transpired on Friday night, and he said he does not work on weekends, and he would call and check on me on Monday. I told him, Monday would be horrible, because my landlord was already very unset with me, and all the monies I borrowed and depleted I probably could have paid rent, he said no worries Mrs. Piccinini, you are gonna tell me what a great weekend you had.
Well it is now 10:30 pm on Saturday, and I still have no loan, no rent, no groceries, and my landlord is threatening me with eviction. I of course can do nothing at this point, but be very disappointed in mankind. I am a woman of faith and can not imagine doing these kinds of things to another mother, let alone person. Why take things that do not belong to you? It doesn't make any sense to me. On Monday morning I called Mr.Chase and asked about the Western Union that I payed for and he said I should have went and picked it up, he then said to hold on and he would transfer me to the person who could find the tracking information for me.
The man got on the phone and said he would have to research because the computer is only showing him part of the tracking numbers. He then got on the phone and told me that the loan is already sent to Western Union, but I could not have the loan until I payed income tax on then of $480.00. I told him I never had to pay income tax on a loan, that they are scammers just like the rest of the other so called lender that have stole from me, I told him to just cancel the process and send me back my $632.00, he said monies are already at western union and he could not send me back my money. I told him then I guess we all lose because I am giving him any more money, there is no more money. He said I guess you lose, and told me to have a nice day and hung up on me.
Thank you for listening. And please help other people be made aware of this happening.
