Us Cash Finance Tricked me out of $1,000 for personal loan Birmingham Alabama
I was contacted on the phone by a company that identidied itself as US Cash Finance (the man's name was Allen Bradley, I believe) He informed me that I could be approved for $10,000 but I told him that I needed only $2,500 & he obtained the approval supposedly from his superiors.
He informed me that I would receive the $2,500 into my bank account & that I could pay off the loan in 6 x $500 payments or $3,000. I agreed and was told that, in order to close the deal, I would have to guarantee the first month's payment by purchasing a prepaid card (green Dot or other)from CVS or Walmart for $500.
I went to CVS bought the $500 card, called Allen & gave him the Pin number on the back. He then told me that the zip code of my bank was in a blackout zone because of some late-paying customers & that I should go to Western Union to receive the money.
He passed me to a Western Union reresentative named Timothy at phone number (347)757-3460 who then told me that in order to send the money, he would require an advance payment of $300 of which $200 would be returned to me. I forwarded that payment by the previous method & waited for Timothy to give me the green light to go to Western Union.
He then told me that, in order to obtain the activation number, I needed to pay an additional $200 which I also sent( I was in too far to stop now). I was then told that Allen at Cash Finance needed to talk to me.
Allen then told me that they would return the whole $1,000 plus the $2,500 loan but that it would be sent by Moneygram & required an advance payment of $250. I did not have the $250 & therefore they refused to proceed & I knew that this was obviously a scam. I bably need the $1,000 that I paid & would appreciate anything you can do to help me.
