I was contacted on my cell phone by Mike Desilva, also could be going by Curtis Robinson - but these may not even be real names, informing me I was approved for a 5,000 loan.

The catch was if I could not get a co-applicant, I would need to make an insurance investment of $900.00.

I went to the website and verified the bbb and address listing was correct. I had no inkling that the person had ripped off the real Royal American Financial Advisors website, BBB rating, address and broker licenses.

I later found out that all these licenses were expired and really applied to the Financial Advisors.

I did not send the money - what really tipped me off was that Desilva wanted me to go to a specific western union and then changed his mind to make it a moneygram. And then he wanted me to go to a specific Moneygram location and send it to Curtis Robinson in St. Catharines, Ontario.

Please watch this - I know I am not the only one because I have been in contact with Royal American Financial Advisors and they alerted me that there have been at least 4 others.

Desilva appears to change his name and toll free number each time he attempts to scam. I do have that information if anyone needs it.

The shame is I thought this was legitimate. The BBB rating is what swayed me and I gave him my SS# and DL# because of the credit check.

Now this guy has that information and my bank information. I DID close my account and opened a new one.

I am now going through the steps for Identity Theft.
