BENTLEY FINANCIAL - CITY BANK LOAN RIPOFF PATCHOQUE New York
*Consumer Comment: I called them
*Consumer Suggestion: My Father almost fell for it
*Consumer Comment: I fell victim Also
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.
