Total money lost $4,600
Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan
This company offered me loan as i was looking for loan. They asked me to pay them the advance for security reasons and i paid that so i can get the loan but they were asking me to send them more money and i asked them to cancel my application as someone told me that they are scammers. They said they can send the money back in 15 business days but it’s over 2 months now and i haven’t received my money back. They are not answering any phone calls neither their emails are working. Now i know such scammers and will never trust them again. I suggest others too to stay away frim such people.
My experience was word for word as stated in the previous post including the same evil cast of characters and I’m out of the same 1250.00. I would add that when I let my displeasure be known, all extensions have refused to answer my calls or emails. They have a phone prompt where they ask who is calling before they will put you through, I state my name and then nobody is available at any extension. Let me add that they did this to me; a senior citizen during a global pandemic. Can nothing be done to stop these thieves and get the stolen money back?

Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan
On March 25th, 2020 I received an email stating I was approved for a loan with lindberglenders. I had been applying for a loan on a handful of sites so I was pleased with the news of approval. I responded to the email and was speaking with a Shawn Graham ext 330. He stated I was approved for $5000.00 as long as I secured it with a payment of $500.00. Once that was received my funds would be released in 24 hours. Shawn specifically said "You’ll have them by midnight, if not 10 am latest tomorrow". I sent the $500 the evening on the 25th. I woke up on the 26th, still no funds. I emailed the following morning and questioned it. I received a call then from a Daryl ext 490 saying the lender has required additional funds of $750 as insurance, but would send that back within 24-48 hours. Since I was currently behind on other payments due to NSF fees, I knew I needed the money. So again, on the 26th, they said I would have my funds by midnight that night. I woke up on the Friday, the 27th with no money in my bank. I had $3.00 left in my account and a terrible feeling in my stomach. I called Lindberg Lenders and spoke with a William this time ext 229 and was now told they’re requesting an additional $1350 as the bank has increased the taxes on the loan. William was the most rude of all 3 by far and spoke to me as no one should speak to anyone in the customer service industry. I was so stressed out and so distraught I ended up crying at work with having no clue what to do next. I called back and spoke to Daryl and informed him that i needed my application cancelled and my money back. Daryl said that he would try to do so in 10-14 business days for me instead of the normal 14-30 business days as well as a confirmation email stating that I will receive my funds back. I did not receive anything for the remainder of my day via email. I called about 10 times Saturday March 28th and spoke with all three, Shawn, William and Daryl and asked if i in fact was being scammed. William said he had been working here for 8 years so it is not a scam. Daryl said i would get my email by end of day and with time change, their end of day being 3pm would be 1pm for me. I never received an email. Shawn said it was out of his control and i would have to speak to William. I called William back and he said he didn’t understand why I needed an email saying i would get my money back. I told him i am out $1250.00 and i have nothing left until payday. I can’t sleep, I’m so upset and disappointed in myself, I just needed written confirmation to ease my anxiety. William proceeded to say he didn’t understand and that he doesn’t have the time so I reminded him it takes about 2 minutes to send an email, if not less. He said he didn’t need to send the money as he was assuring me I would get it. I told him that all 3 of you have assured me I would get a loan, and I am left with $3 in my account 4 days later. William hung up the phone on me and that was the last call between us. I feel that waiting for my money to be returned is wishful thinking and it makes me sick to my stomach. I just want Lindberg Lenders to be out there and known for being awful humans to be able to do this to others.
