Jonathan Morgan called us prior to an internet add he had about a christmas loan we requested. He told us the least they could loan was $5,000. He faxed me a loan agreement I filled it out, signed it and then faxed it back to him.

He called and told me that i needed $900 for collateral to put against the loan. He said it would go into an insurance policy in case i did not pay it the insurance would cover it. Then he said to call him back with a reference number. So the next day i went to wal-mart and sent a mony grahm just like he tol me to do.

He had me send it to a allison mconley in Sandcost, Alberta, Canada. I sent the money then called him with the reference number. He told me the money would be posted to my account at midnight tonight and not to spend it all in one place.

The next day the money was not in my acoount. So when i called him back he would not answer none of my calls. I went back to Wal-Mart to try to recover my money they told me it was picked up right after i sent it the day before.

Now he will not return any calls.

Thank you

marlow, Oklahoma

#2 Consumer Suggestion

Tommy, WHAT were you thinking???

First let me say I am sorry to hear that you lost your money to a scammer. However, this is a very old and common scam.

Just so you know, "advance fee" loans are ILLEGAL everywhere in the United States that I know of. The first sign of scam.

The second sign of a scam is anyone asking you to send this fee by wire such as MoneyGram, Western Union, etc. NEVER wire money to someone you do not know personally! It is just like cash and cannot be recovered. It is gone.

The third red flag here is sending the money out of the country! Our authorities have no jurisdiction at all once the border is crossed.

However, you can gather all of your documentation and contact information used, and file a complaint with the Financial crimes Division of the FBI, and also the US Secret Service.

And, who made first contact? How exactly did you find them? or did they find you? Was it a website? A spam email?

That "do not spend it all in one place" comment was a wisecrack. he was laughing at you to your face. Totally despicable.

Off the subject, I used to live in the OKC area and delivered oil rig supplies to Marlow! I had a hotshot operation out of Midwest City. Wow! Marlow has a Wal mart now? I guess your finally on the map!

Good luck!

Advance Fee Loan

AUTHOR: Dave - (Canada)

POSTED: Sunday, December 24, 2006

Google "Advance Fee Loan".

File complaints with RCMP in Alberta,,

The sooner, the more likely you are to be part of a story where they caught the person and got the money back for the victims.

There have been two recent breakthroughs in these sorts of scams, so the complaints are important to help other people from being scammed.

Tell your friends: never, ever send cash via wire. No legitimate company will ever ask a client to do that.
