I was ripped off by a fraudulent company, known as North American Financial Services. I firmly believe that the Federal Trade Commission, and the Justice Department should do whatever it can to ensure that this business is closed down, and the victims of the crimes that this company has committed should be compensated.
On January 19, 2006, I applied for a loan with this company for $5000, because I was unable to get a loan from the usual sources due to past credit problems. On the same date, I was faxed some documents to sign, as well as pay a collateral up front fee before my loan would be sent to me. I received the faxed documents, and I signed them, and sent them back to North American Financial Services. I have copies of these documents in my possession.
I received a call from a "Sarah Watts" at the above mentioned fax number, which is also their telephone number. I was told to wire $650.00 via Western Union to a "William Nason" in Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. I wired the money to Mr. Nason on January 27, 2006. Ms. Watts asked me to call her back with the reference number from Western Union, which I did. She returned my call and got the reference number from Western Union.
On January 31, I tried to call Ms. Watts, but the line was disconnected. I sent a fax to Ms. Watts on January 31st, but I have heard nothing since. When I try to call the number listed, I get a recording stating "we're sorry, we are unable to connect you to your party at this time. Please try again later. Thank you. Goodbye."
I filed a complaint with the North Carolina Attorney General against this company on February 7, 2006. They advised me to contact RECOL (Reporting Economic Crime On-Line). I also contacted the Rhode Island Attorney General, and I would like to add my "Ripoff" report against this company, so that there are no more victims of this "scam."
