Synopsis: I was contacted via telephone by a text message. The message stated to call, because I was approved for a personnel loan. So I had call the number in the text message. The first rep named Ron Allen, said that I qualify for 3 thousand dollars. I told him I was looking for 20 thousand dollars. He said ok. But I would have too purchase i-tune cards in the amount of $175.00 Dollars. So I did. Then ask me to scratch off the back and read him the numbers in the back of the cards purchased. So he then forwarded the next phone call too a Mr. Ed Gonzales he said go and purchase $300.00 I tune cards and I would receive my loan after. So I did. He then said I would need too purchase another $500.00 dollars of i-tune cards for the insurance policy. Once this is done I would receive my loan. But never receive the loan. He then transferred the call to a Ms. Nicole Smith. She said it would cost me $600.00 dollars in i-tune cards in order to have the loan amount wired into my bank account. Ms. Nicole Smith sated that if I do not purchase the full amount of $600.00 I will not receive my loan, because that was the cost of the wire transfer fees in order to wire the loan amount into my account. So now I am out of $1,575.00. dollars and have no use for these cards. Please assist me in a way I will be able to recover my money from these fraudulent loan firm….

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan
I was notified by Consumer Loan service on April 4th that I was approved for a loan of $3,000. They told me that all I would have to do is pay $175.00 for the processing fee/verification code. They said the payment would have to be made by purchasing itune apple gift cards and once i did that they would need the code off the back to process it. I felt they were legit and they sounded to be promising to assure the loan. As I admit that i’m embarrass to say i fell for it. Once that was processed they transferred me to the banking dept to finalize my loan. I spoke with another so called represenative and he said in order to have the funds transfer to my account I would have to get another $350.00 in Itune cards to pay for the wire transfer. So again I proceed to do so. By the end of all the fee’s they were asking for in order to get the money I ended up giving them $1,025.00. Needless to say I Never got the money because after what I already paid them they said that I would have to pay another $350.00 in order to get the money released in my account. I told them I wasn’t giving them no more money because I had no more to give. I asked for a refund and I was told that I would have to pay $350.00 to cancel the loan in which I NEVER got. Not to mention there is no guarantee that I would of got my refund. They have been calling my phone everyday. I haven’t been answering there calls because this is a SCAM!!! There is no listing of them on the website @ least none that i can find. The # that they are calling me from is (206) 596-0566 or (206) 596-0540 and it comes up Seattle Washington. I would like for this so called agency to be investigated and for my money back. They are conning people into this and ripping them off there money and not following through with the loan they assure you that you will get. This NEEDS TO STOP!!!

Said I got approved for a loan I applied for. (They were all habib) first said I needed to pass verification. $350 on iTunes. Then transferred me to the loan department. Then said my score was too low and they needed a $500 iTunes security deposited. That it was gonna be given back after the loan goes through. But when I asked for my 350 back cause I didn’t have any more money, they said it was none refundable and it was going to pay for cancellation.
