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

This company promised to help get us straightened out with loan.  They said we were approved.  We sent all the paperwork and did as they instructed.  They took us for over $1500 and will not return our phone calls.

I am now in a worse financial state because of these predators.  My car note is due.  I may be evicted.  Without a car, I cannot work.  They promised me $10,000 and nothing. 

I am contacting BBB and have already contacted an attorney who has already advised that company apparantly is practicing the following and she will be investigating:  (1) Fraudelant Activity; (2) Misrepresentation; (3) Breach of Contract and one more that I can't recall.  But Thank God, she's working on getting my loss recouped and then some.  

Please, if you are desperate, do NOT let them rape you financially.  They will.  They can "run" by not answering the phone, but they cannot hide.  This attorney is a bulldog who fights for victims of fraud.

Here is what to do..

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

If your attorney is charging you a single penny you need to immediately STOP so you don't get ripped of more.

You fell victim to the "Advanced Loan Fee" Scam.  It is illegal for any company to request money up front to guarantee a loan.  They can call it what ever they is still illegal. 

You didn't mention how you sent them the money, but I bet this will sound very familiar.  They called you up and had you send money through a MoneyGram, Western Union, Pre-Paid Debit Card to their "associate" in another state.   Normally once you call and ask about your money they give you a line such as "Your credit was worse than they thought".  As a result they need you to send additional money.  This cycle will continue until you get wise and figure it is a scam. 

Unfortunately, there is NOTHING your attorney can do to get your money back, and here is why.

The Company Name they gave you is fake, any name they gave you is fake.

If they gave you an address if you search it out you will find that it is also invalid.  Their favorite thing to do is to use a vacant lot.  But you may find that it is in effect a Private PO Box, or even a business that has nothing to do with the actual scammers.

If you have a Phone Number you will find that it is a "Throw Away" Cell Phone or Virtual IP Phone that was paid for with a Stolen Credit Card or Cash.  It may have a US Number but I can just about guarantee you that they were not calling from the US. 

If they have a Web Site you will also find that that was probably paid for with a Stolen Credit Card. 

Oh and you say there is proof when they picked up the Money...Nope try again.  You gave them enough information where they don't need to show any ID.

The biggest kicker to this..they are probably not even in the US so there is nothing that any US official or court can do to get your money back..even if by some miracle they were found.  My guess is that they had you send it to a location that is within a couple of hours of either the Canadian or Mexican Border, making it easy for them to come into the country, get the money, and leave.
