I received a call stating I was guaurantted a loan for 16,000 for the term of 7 years at 9.25 interest and payments of 299.88 per month. exactly what I have been looking for to get myself and by business out of debt.

The lady, Nancy Parker told me that i would have to pay for default insurance on the loan because my loan was approved by a private lender and not a traditional lender because of my credit.

I was told to Western Union the money to a Michael Golding in Canada and If I did this before 3;30 pm that the fed ex would bring me my cashiers check and documents the next day, within 24 hours.

My brother loaned me some money to catch up on bills and I used that money to pay for the default insurance on the loan. I have dissapointed alot of people who have been trying to help me out by making this bad decision, as it was just to good to be true , but the position I am in right now made me beleive that this was a good offer.

Anyways, once I wired the money and called the bentley financial or City bank people, I gave them the money control number off my western union slip and they told me that they would be calling me back in 2 hours after they contact fed ex and schedule my delivery appointment. I never heard back, so I started calling the numbers they gave me every hour on the hour and still no return call.

I then called my brother in florida to tell him about the horrible mistake i made. He is a police sargant and started to look into the company right away, he even sent the police in New York to check out the banks address which did not exsist. The address went to a UPS building and the suite # was actually just a PO Box. Bentley Financial is operated by Robert F Bentley and he lives in Pennsylvania and was in prison for 4 years after being charged for selling fraudulant CD's to banks, credit unions and investors. He also had a company called Broomall investments in which he took in over 217 victims, this is what he was in prison for and he was ordered to pay 37 million in restitution. this was in 2001 from the reports I have read on the web.

I hope that someone will go after this guy once again, and maybe this time do more so that he cannot continue to change business names and continue to take money from innocent victims like me.

I have had to file complaints with so many people over this it just kills me because I have to work to try and make a living and am self employed. I was an innocent victim looking for a loan to get my life back in order, and now things are even worse for me. I would like to see this man in court and have him pay me and the other victims enough money to not only get our monies back but to pay restitution to the victims to recover from debt and time and suffering etc... whatever they could get out of him.

I would realy like to know why our govenment can't have more control over these kind of people. Does anyone know where you can go to get a loan with poor credt, without getting ripped off?

My Father almost fell for it

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

POSTED: Thursday, August 03, 2006
It all started a week ago when Kathryn diaz called and said my father was approve for 5000 thoundsand dollars to pay it back in 5 years t100 dollars a month. anyways i started asking so much question. i asked for a copy of the licence for their institution. i also asked if i could take the deposit personally with my lawyer and this girl was stuck on her answers.

i told her about the nagative report about the company. i also went to BBB to see if any complaints against them is listed and the funny thing is they listed but zero complaints.

To make a long story short she couldnt provide no proof whatsoever. so i told her i cant trust her or company. So many people are getting rip off by this people is incredible. their new number is 1-888-880-0123 i think im gonna take a drive to that location sometime this week. Good luck

I fell victim Also

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

POSTED: Thursday, August 03, 2006
I was also a victim of this company and the responed tomy rip off report with lies, they said I got my money and never paid them? I sent them $950 to Onika Samuel in Vancuver Canada. I was also told that in 24 hours I would have my money, and never received it! After a few days of me calling they finally called me and said the lender in Canada wanted me to send another $450 because of my credit, when I told them I had no more money to send them, could they pay it for me for my trouble or take it out of my loan and they said no, So Kathryn Diaz said I would receive a full refund from Canada in 4 to 5 weeks, and a refund from them for my Western Union Fees, I have never seen it and now the number they gave me has been disconnected.

Does anyone know what we can do to get our money back and keep this from happeing to other credit challenged people who are just trying to fix their problems without filing bankruptucy?
