#1 Consumer Comment

Yes, they are crooks, the whole thing is a scam

AUTHOR: FloridaNative - ()

This is called the Advance Fee Loan scam and has been around for a long time. These scammers are very, very active lately. If you go to the FTC(dot)gov website and look under consumer scams you will see that what happened to you is the pattern that this particular scam follows.

The FTC website will also tell you where to file the reports of this event. Please read the tips on that site too for avoiding these scams.

Don't contact the scammer again. Don't send them any more money. If some lender asks you to put money on a Green Dot or other reloadable card then you know that it is a scam because no lender can charge you a fee for the loan before providing the loan to you. It doesn't matter what they call the fee (insurance, low credit, proof of funds, whatever name). When you gave the numbers from the card to the scammer, he took the money off your card. It's gone now.

It is not likely that you will get any money back. These scammers most likely aren't even located here in the US. The names they use are fake. The phone numbers are spoofed. It's an entire unethical business model to rip off unsuspecting consumers. I suspect that they got your information when you went online to look for a payday type loan. Be careful. Next time they ask you to provide money up front, say no.
