My story is exactly the same as the rest of these stories!!! I applied for a personal loan for debt consolidation online and was contacted by David Taylor of Atlantic Capital Resource Center the next day. Mr. Taylor told me that I had been "fully" approved for a $5,000.00 loan provided by a private lender. He then sent me the loan package and agreement which stated that I either had to make an "insurance payment" of $900.00 or pre-pay the first 7 months of payments totalling $708.00. I did not have the money to send him (thus, why I needed the loan) so I asked him if the lender would accept a partial payment and he said yes. I then sent a money gram in the amount of $450.00 (plus $35 money gram fee) and confirmed receipt with Mr. Taylor who told me I would receive my funds in 24 hours. When this did not happen I call Mr. Taylor who informed me that the lender approved the partial payment but that the insurance company would not, so if I wanted to receive my funds I would have to send another $300 (plus $25 money gram fee) and then the funds would be released within 6 hours; I foolishly promtly sent the money. By the next afternoon the money still had not arrived and I was unable to reach Mr. David Taylor at all so I called customer service and was told that my account had been transfered to there department and Tracy Emerson was now in charge of my file. Mrs. Emerson informed me that the reason my loan had not funded was because I still needed to pay the $400 processing and administrative fees to them (not the lender). I told her that I was never told about these fees and wanted my money back. Mrs. Emerson then informed me that I would be charged these fees for their time regardless of if I actually got the loan through them but once I paid it, my loan would be funded within 4 hours because everything was all set up to fund in the system. I again foolishly sent them another $400 (plus $35 money gram fee)via money gram and of course the money never showed up in my account and I was unable to reach anyone in the entire company until the following monday when I was informed that money gram system had gone down and they were unable to confirm may payment... by the time they were able to confirm and receive my payment, my loan had "timed out" and the funds were no longer available. I was then told by Mrs. Emerson that I would be fully refunded the entire amount I had sent, plus money gram fees, plus $200 severance (over $1,300). It has been over 4 weeks and I have received nothing and now their phone number does not work, it just says "goodbye".

I just want my money back!!! These people are all crooks who steal from those that don't have anything to spare!!!! I have filed a complaint with WA State Attorney Generals Office and I have been asigned an account number... Does anyone know of any other avenues to get my money back?

I have saved every money gram receipt, loan documents, fax confirmation, and email correspondence!

Please help!

Be 100% before you name names

I reviewed the website provided for Atlantic Capital Resources, LLC, and I don't see the similarities between that website and the falsified ones associated with ACRC and it's array of alias websites/companies. First signal is the layout and wording itself---no match with ACRC site. Second, they have listed contact phone and fax numbers, which isn't anywhere on ACRC website. And third, their address is mailable per the USPS (which the ACRC address definitely was not). I guess time will tell since their info was forwarded to the authorities. I'm hopeful, but at this point, after being out nearly $2000, I'm not expecting much.

Thanks for the info though. :)

Some hope?

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

I found another alias that this company just started using Atlantic Capital Resouces, LLC... their phone number is 212-537-9192, it currently works. They will tell you that they are not the same company but if you go to their website you will see that they structured the exact same way. I have sent this information to the FBI as well as they local law enforcement agencies. If I can't get my money back, I am going to badger them until I feel better about getting ripped off! I have also been in contact with several different investigative report news teams that are working hard to catch these cons!

Atlanta Guy - you are probably one of them! Who else would go around and take the time to harrass people who have been ripped off? Was it smart to send our money to these people? Absolutely not... but they only thing that any victim on this page is guilty of, is trusting human beings too much... giving people too much credit and assuming that the world revolves around the same moral compass... So Atlanta Guy, or should I say Capital Atlanta Guy Resouce Center - blow me!

We're all S.O.L.

AUTHOR: Kristin J. - (U.S.A.)

Unfortunately, there's no way for us to get our money back. Atlantic Capital Resource Center is actually a group of con artists out of Canada. I've filed all reports and done all I can, but it's bleak that I'll get my nearly $2000 back.

I wish I had some positive news for you.

There is no help for you. You sent your money to scammers in a foreign country, who use phony addresses and disposible phones. It is gone forever. There is nothing anyone can do about it. No lender EVER requires money up front for a personal loan. NEVER. Do yourself a favor and wise up. Stop falling for scams.
