This company, the Premier Lending Tree Group claims that they're going to get me a $5,000 loan, but I had to send a insurance security deposit. Like a fool, I wired them the money through Western Union in Indianapolis, Indiana. One red flag should of been, the lender was from Ontario, Canada (Michael Agapaka). I told David Whitmore, the manager of the company, that I didn't have the funds for the whole $500, so he said that it was okay to send $460 and that the company will take care of the rest. The company stated to me that the money would be in my account by the end of the day. I get up early the next morning, the funds were not there, I contacted David Whitmore, and he kept telling me to call back at this time, and at that time, finally on Wednesday of last week, I was told that my credit was not good, and that I needed to supply them another $500.00. I told him that I didn't have the funds. He told me that I can have my refund on Sept. 16th, 2010. This was a lie. I called Western Union about the money and he told me that it was a common place for loan scams to come out of Canada and I was given some numbers to contact up in Canada and also in the USA. I contact Canada, the FBI, my bank, and I also placed a credit block on my accounts with the major credit bureaus. Also, the web site www.premierlendingtreegroup.com
has a block on the web site and the phone number is disconnected. I don't know, if I can ever get my funds back. It seems that society and the banks want to reward companies like Premier Lending Tree Group for cheating people, who are having a hard time getting by, but this taught me not to trust anybody anymore. If a loan looks too good, is probably is a bad thing. Avoid Premier Lending Tree Group (or whatever name they come back as) like a plague. They're nothing, but trouble. There are complaints about them on a lot of web sites and more are popping up everyday.
