I received a call from a loan rep. at Southern United Financial stating that I had been approved for a $5,000 loan. In order to secure the loan, a payment would be required in the amount of $938.28 that would be applied to the first six payments of the loan repayment plan.

This money was to be wired to Barcelona, Spain, where the lender rep. was located. Once money was received, then the loan payment would be in the account the next day.

The following day, I received another call stating that after further review of my credit, another payment in the amount of $938.28 would be needed. If I did not agree, my money would be refunded at the end of the month.

Well, it has been a month, no money and unable after numerous times to reach anyone at this company. Later found out via internet, that they changed phone number and extension. Consumers please be aware and do not fall for this scam.

Website doesnt exist anymore either

AUTHOR: Steven - (U.S.A.)

I think the company may have changed its name after a while. There is another company called Colonial Lenders Group... website is www.coloniallenders.com you may want to stay away from also. The IP address is registered overseas in Amsterdam which is where a lot of the scammers in Russia and other Eastern European nations are working from.

The easiest way to see if a company is in the U.S. or not is to ping the website they give you and then go to www.arin.net and put in the IP address in the WHO IS locator.

No matter hard up for money you are NEVER get a loan from a company that whats you to give them money up front in the form of processing pays or saying that you will not have to send them money for xx amount of months.
