payday loan america 216-759-0269 called me (Billy) told me that I had been approved for a $5000 loan. They wanted me to get a green dot money pak card for $218 to secure the loan. This money was supposed to show good faith from me that I could make the payments.

 After giving them the number on the back of the card they said they would call me right back and confirm that the $5000 was in my account. They called back and tried to say that the money pak card had already been used and I would have to get another card. I argued with them because I had just scratched the back of the card when I gave it to them. I called green dot and because I had volunteered to give them the number they refused to reimburse me my money. I called Billy back and told him that green dot had told me that they were the ones that took the money off my money pak and put it into a prepaid visa card. Billy sounded shocked when I told him green dot said that they were the ones that took the money.
He quickly transferred me to his supervisor who to said that the transaction went through and I would have my money within 5 mins. I never got the money. He called back and said that there was a problem with my credit report and in order for him to fix the problem I needed to send them $260 more dollars.
I told him that I no longer was interested in getting the loan and requested a refund of the $218. He said I would receive a check in the mail within 3 days. I never got the check and called them back and after promising me a refund for 3 days. I called again and Billy said "My friend is drinking a beer and I am smoking a joint all in your name! YOU HAVE BEEN SCAMMED! Don't ever call this number again!" Can you imagine how stupid I felt for falling for this fraud? So if anyone wants you to send money from a green dot money pak or a vanilla reload network card, don't do it! It is a scam!!
