RIPPED OFF - FRAUD, DON'T BE ANOTHER VICTIM!
We applied for a payday advance loan over the internet, and was then contacted by this company. We were told that we could not be approved for a payday loan, but for a personal loan. We agreed to the terms set forth by Ms. Cynthia Atkins. We were required to send four monthly loan payments in advance, and then within twenty-four hours we would be wired three thousand dollars to our bank account.
When we first tried to western union the funds, Cynthia called us and told us they would not release them, so we in turn called western union. Western Union told us the person we were trying to send funds to was under watch for some government agency. We were given back our funds. We should have stopped right then, but we called Cynthia back and oh how shocked she was and had to inform her supervisor right away. We then received a message on the phone the next day saying how sorry they were and that he was being dealt with by the police and was even in custody, telling us he was doing some sort of fraud on e-bay.
We were then given a different name and sent it money gram, they got the money and were so sorry for the inconvience of the fraud that we would get our funds in 12 hours. Guess what no funds! I called and spoke with Verna Goodvine, the supervisor, she then referred me to the loan dept. where I first met up with Mr. James McCoy. He informed me they were backlogged, and I could not possibly get my funds until tuesday 11-11-08, which I informed him was a federal holiday and the banks were closed. He then stated he would push it through for Monday. Guess what, no funds again.
Wednesday came and he said there was a problem with our lender, but he would find another one because they deal with so many. I called later in the day, I was then informed if we sent another $400.00 that our funds could be released in about 30 minutes. You can already guess what I told him.
I spoke with him again today 11-13-08, and he again told me of the $400.00 deal, I told him no way, so he told me to call back this afternoon. I will, but now its just a game between us. Last week I contacted the Secret Service and Attorney General in my state of Iowa, and I was told then that I was a victim of fraud. So now I will be closing down my bank account, because they have all that information. Mr. McCoy informed me he could send me a check in the mail in two days after my funds were approved, I told him, I wish he would send me something in the mail, so I can get the postal inspectors involved, so I know something would be done. I am listing every phone number I have for them also, so don't be fooled like we were, it can and does happen to everyone, my husband and I both work for the Federal Government, so see it can happen to anyone.
Phone# 1-877-660-0734, 1-876-469-7420,1-876-573-8228, and my favorite, Mr. James McCoy, 1-876-573-9645, also the other numbers listed in the other ladies rip off report. P.S. I would love to be involved in anything to persue these fraudulent people and bring them to justice, oh yeah, I forgot, Mr. McCoy told me I could get a refund of my money in 30 days with a fee. Don't fall for this company, they say they have companies all over with their main one in Wash. DC. That is not true, I have tried to get a phone number for it, surprise, information doesn't have one, not even a toll free. WOW, I AM SURPRISED!
