I was contacted on my Cell phone regarding a 2000.00 loan they told me i qualified for it .I believe his name was John.He told me it was 110.00 fee to get it .i got the cash and he told me i needed to get an I tunes gift card for that amount so i did,After that he told me that i needed to get another gift card for 275.00 for a fee from the government so i knew the loan was real so I did.Then they told me I had to get one for 395.00 because they were unable to wire the money into my account so i did at that time they were to give me a reference number so i could pick my money up ,of course there was something else i had to pay state taxes ontje money of 230.00 ,so again iid what they asked.They said that was all i had to do and i would get the number for my money. i waited again for 30 minutes so they could verify all the imformation.At last John came back on the phone I told him I wanted all my money back and I no longer wanted this loan and if I dint get it I was going to the Police,He said he would get the manager for me,peter came on the phone and told me I had to listen to him and I couldnt interrupt him I said ok,He then told me that I owed back taxes through the IRS and i couldnt get the money unless I paid it so i Asked how much he told me 919.00 i told him he was lying because I never recieved a letter,He then said they contacted me in July and they never recieved a reply.I told him i was going to contact the Irs myself .He was mad I told him I dont have anymore money period,He told me to give 450.00 on saturday and 450.00 on Monday he told me if I didnt omply with him he was going to seize my Bank acount and then I would be arrested I had to say ok just to get off the phone,Yesterday was Saturday and they called 3 times i didnt answer them at all.I called the IRS myself on Friday and they told me I didnt owe them any money.So now I have to change my Bank account so they cant get in it.thats it so far. I feel so stupid but I needed the money now I know better.
