I was contacted several times by Paul Robinson from The Mortgage Lender. He stated I was approved for a $10,000 loan. I told him that would be to much and couldn't accepted that much. He then said he could take it down to $5,000. I told him ok. He then sent me a loan document. He said i would need to send 4 month payment and that is called a security deposit. So i send him $732. Then he said it would take about 30 mins for it to go through. I waited 6 hours and called him back. He the stated he is still working on it. The next day he said i was red flagged and need to purchase insurance and i need to send him $466 more. So of course I did. Then i waited 24 hours and then called him back and asked what is going on. He said he his still working on it. The i wasn't able to get ahold of Paul Robinson for about 4 days. Then i used someone else's phone with an out of state number and he answered so i asked him what is going on? I informed him im getting really upset and will do what ever i have to do to get my money back. He said he is tired of me calling him every 10 minutes and every single day. I told him that's what you get for messing with a poor person. Then I informed Paul Robinson that i want to cancel the loan. He stated that's fine and he will send my refund through a courier and I will have to sign for it. I waited 15 days and still nothing. So now I'm contacting the state attorney general and contacting a lawyer. I will post a number for a lawyer who may be able to help all of us with this rip off.  I didn't think they got this many people!

Don't waste your money on a lawyer.

AUTHOR: Flynrider - (USA)

   What you describe is the classic Advance Fee Loan Scam.   It is a fairly common Internet based scam that has been reported here quite regularly for years.    I have never heard of anyone successfully identifying the individual who took their money.    The scam is set up so that the victim ends up sending cash via an untraceable means such as Western Union or Moneygram (and more recently GreenDot).   This cash can be picked up by anyone, anywhere in the world if they have the MTCN number.    

  If this were an actual company you might stand a chance, but it's not.   It's just a group of scammers that use fake names, addresses and documents to make you think they are a lending company.

  The FTC has a web page about this scam here :
