Complaint Review: Capital One Loans - Washington State - Washington
The guy named George Bali introduced himself as a loan officer from Capital One. He offered a loan for $5,000 with low interest rate, for a repayment of $156/month for 36 months. He said he pulled out my application and the loan will be ready the same day. But since I have a poor credit score, I have to pay an insurance fee of $75. He asked me to buy the Google Play card and load the $75 fee. I did that. I sent him the picture of the back of the card.
A few hours later, there was no loan transfer to my bank account. George called me back saying there's a tax issue with the transfer and I needed to pay $125 to fix that. He said $250 was the total tax and he will take care of the half. So far I already paid $200 for this loan.
An hour later, still no loan transfer to my account. I started to doubt this whole transaction. He called me again after getting the $200 from me. He gave me the news that the money will be available tomorrow morning at 9 am. He sounded so helpful, and I was so stupid to believe that.
The following day, still no transfer. He then told me that I needed to pay an activation fee of $180 for the Western Union since the bank wire didn't work. Then that's the time I realized that this is all fraud. He gave me the WU MTCN no. (2312882021) through text messages and promised to send all loan documents through email. This is all bullshit.
I called this scammer to tell him that he's committing a fraud. He then transferred me to his associate (fake accountant) for some loan details. I didn't buy it. I insisted to return my $200. But these people are saying that it's not possible. They asked me to pay $100 cancellation fee. I never get any call back.
They're preying for desparate people who are in dire need of money. These scammers need to get busted.
