If you apply to these lenders you will be approved for the amount you request or we will reimburse your fee based on the amount you are actually approved for collectively. The fee that Star Credit charges is for the information that Star Credit provides. If you wish us to release the information on these lenders to you, we will
need to receive the proper referral fee that is due according to the following schedule:

ANY AMOUNT BETWEEN:

WHAT DO I DO NEXT?- Figure out the amount that you need to send by analyzing the referral fee schedule on page 1. For instance, if you need between $ 100.00 and $ 2,500.00, the regular fee that is due is $ 150.00. If you send it to us before the early bird date on page 1, then you only have to send the EARLY BIRD amount, or $ 75.00. If paying by mail, please send a completed copy of this form and payment to the address on top of page 1. Star Credit Services accepts Visa, Mastercard, Western Union, money orders, and certified checks. Personal checks are also accepted but delay the process by 15 days. Payment instructions are on page 2 of this email(form 1400).

If you send us your letter and fee and it is postmarked by the early bird date, you only need to send the early bird fee for the amount you are requesting. If it is after the early bird date, then we need the regular fee.

Once we receive your order, we will mail you the lenders' information immediately. Any lender that offers personal loans may be able to get money in your hands within days. The fastest methods are western union and credit card. It may take longer if payment is sent by regular mail.

WHAT IF I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS?- Star Credit Services is primarily a mail order company. By answering questions through the use of voice mail, faxes, mail and the internet, Star Credit Services is able to keep it's prices at modest levels.

==================================

After I received that I thought about it, and was questionible at first so I started to inquired through email and this is what I received:

So if send you $200 by Western Union, I'm guaranteed to receive a loan in the amount of up to $15,000? How is that paid? By check or deposited in an account? How long does it take to receive if I send you it tomorrow (14 May)?

Once we receive your payment, we will mail you all the information promised immediately. The fastest payment methods, in the order of fastest to slowest are as follows: credit card and western union(fastest), money order or certified check, personal check(15 day wait). When it is received, the lenders should be contacted by telephone, if possible. Any lender listed that offers personal loans will be able to respond within a very short period of time, usually the same day. As far as lines of credit are concerned, they may take longer. If approved by a lender that offers personal loans, you can usually receive funds within a day. Lines of credit may take longer. They will probably issue you a check if approved, and the first payment is usually 30 days after funds are received. If a lender requires any documentation from you, they will let you know. If you are interested in any special arrangements, you must work them out with the lender(s). The amounts listed for each lender are MAXIMUMS. Therefore, you can ask for a smaller amount if you wish. As you make monthly payments, the lenders will report your payments to the credit bureaus.

Sincerely,

Donald Figueroa
Account Representative

==============================================

In the end, this company just gives you the names of companies that offer loans, that everyone in this world already knows offers loans, but it all depends on your credit history. I was a fool to fall for this scam, and I should have known better.
