A loan I never applied for was issued in my name. Around 10pm one evening, I received an email that my loan (that I never applied for) have been approved. When I called to investigate, I was treated by phone operators like I had simply forgotten about the loan. Someone told me the loan was there and it was in my name, so I must have applied for it. He told me there was nothing I could do until the next morning. Many, many phone calls later, the company has clammed up. They won't give me any information about what happened, so I have no way of knowing if my private information was compromised. Am I the victim of identity theft? I have no way of knowing!
The company lied to me many times. Certain details during the call lead me to believe that actually the company shared my information with other payday lenders and a loan was issued in my name by the company without my authorization.
I would like to file a complaint with any applicable cyber crime investigating agencies, local police, as well as with the local state attorney of any location that is connected with my case.
Have you had a similar experience with this company? I believe that with enough reports we can greatly enhance the likelihood that this company will be investigated. A quick review of the boards on this website shows that they engage in many shady practices, not just what happened to me.
Companies like this depend on the weak bargaining position of the consumers who are forced to turn to them. They need to be stopped.
