Pinnacle Finance Group Scam Artists STOLE MY MONEY Raleigh, North Carolina

*Consumer Comment: I had the same thing happen to me with Pinnacle Finance Group.

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

On October 9, 2012 from a woman named "Brittany Haynes" saying I was approved for a $15,000.00 loan from her company, "Pinnacle Finance Group" (800-597-0417 ex. 6046). I e-mailed her that day and told her I needed to refinance my car and if that was something her company did. She said we transfer the money into your account and you can do whatever you want with it. So, I faxed her the two pages of the "contract" she needed on October 9, 2012.

The next day I heard from her again through e-mail letting me know she received the two pages I sent her and that the next step was to pay the insurance payment of $900.00, but because I didn't have that much, all I needed to pay was $500.00. She gave me instructions to go to my local Walgreens, put $500.00 on a GreenDot MoneyPak and then call her back with the number on the back of the card. I did this on Thursday October 11, 2012. Once she received the money, she mentioned it would take up to two days. So, I waited two days. Once two days was up, I e-mailed her saying the specific time and date and that the money was still not in my account.

On Monday October 14, 2012, I finally got a hold of her by phone and she said she just got out of a meeting about my account and said that unfortunately their "company" would not pay the closing costs AND the additional insurance, and that I needed to pay the extra $400.00 because it was cheaper than the closing costs. So, again I went to my local Walgreens and purchased another GreenDot MoneyPak for $400.00 and called her with the number. Once I did that, she said the money would be in my account within 4 hours. It wasn't. I have sent her sooo many e-mails and I called her probably 153 times within a week.

I also was able to get another extension, Tracy Cain (800-597-0417 ex. 6023). I spoke with her on Wednesday October 13, 2012 and she said she would look into it for me and call me back... she never did. I also called her numerous times. I read something on-line and got another extension, Alex Mithers ex. 8123. I called all three extensions I found and I have not heard from anyone and I still haven't received any money. Well, with research, I found out that it is a scam. The real
Pinnacle Finance Group's website is This company is using They took $900.00 from me and I want them stopped, found, and put in jail for fraud. I also want my $900.00 back and more for the stress I have been through with this whole issue. I will be starting a grand theft/fraud lawsuit.

I appreciate your report. I filed one that is very similar. Are you really planning a lawsuit?   Have you reported them to GreenDot Corporation? I have. They are investigating who got the money from the MoneyPaks I gave them (stupidly). I hope you continue to post updates. I would be interested to see how you progress.  I will be posting updates to my report as well. Good luck.
