I had been looking for a loan to cover some medical bills on- line and in my home city Winchester VA. I had been denied by all companies.
A few days later, 9.19.05, I received a call from a man named Dale Wilkins. He explained he was a broker from a company called Allied Mutual Brokers who worked with different agencies and was able to approve me for a $10,000 loan. He explained that it would be a secured loan. The options I had to secure the loan were the following: I have a co-signer with a credit score of 750 making $70,000/yr, or to work with thier insurance company, McClary Insurance Group, paying a premium of 956.31, to secure the loan and recieving the premium back after the term of the loan (10yrs.) was completed and paid in full.
I did not know anyone who met that criteria, so of course I went for the insurance option. I had asked about maybe lowering the loan amount to $6,500 to lower the insurance premium, but it actually only lowered it about $100. So I went ahead and gave him my fax number for him to fax me the agreement.
I recived his fax and read the "contracts" signed them and sent required information (voided check, so loan would be wired to my account) and although the fax actually came from the number 8668339137, he had me fax all documents back to him a different number. He called me when he recieved the documents and gave me the western union information. He told me to send it to McClary Insurance group ATT: Mike Davis, with country code, Calgary Alberta. I went to Western Union and attempted to sen the money, but they did not recognize the country code, so I called Dale back left him a message telling him this and he called me back and told me that I needed to send it as if I were sending it to an individual using the blue form. He then explained that as when I completed that to call and leave him a message with the money control number. The total cost at Western Union was $1035.30. I called "Dale" back and left the MCN.
He called me back the next day and explained that he had indeed recieved the MCN and that the loan would be in my account within 2-3 business days. He also said that if it did not arrive by 9.27.05, to give him a call.
The money was never transfered into my account and I tried calling "Dale" more than several times and recieved an error message stating that the wireless customer I was attempting to reach was unavailable, then it repeated the same phrase in French.
I was curious so I looked up Allied Mutual Brokers online and came upon this. You can imagine my devistation! I don't know how I am going to get myself out of this whole they threw me in. I have been completely robbed of my financial information, all my credit information and my credit will suffer the rest of my life due to the bills I am now so far behind. I used all our money to "secure the loan".
