Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan
I had a missed call from Tampa Florida 813-295-6808 stating that they were Light stream finance regarding a loan which I did request a loan from another institute so I thought this one was connected. They offered me up to 5,000 and that I would pay 236.00 per month for 24 months. I thought that was a good deal, so I proceeded to ask questions just to make sure this was a legit company, They confirm the name a spelled it as Light Stream financial so I went online to look, they was a light stream financial that had mediocore reviews. So I thought maybe this was ok, so they ask for my last 4 digits and the correct spelling of my name which I gave it to them, then they said they would deposit money into my account today, and asked for my checking account number. Then the guy said he will send an email with all the details, then he put his manager on the phone who said he wanted to verify everything, they he would deposit 500.00 but I need to send it right back to him to verify the account. I told him that sounded fishy why would I send it right back to him? He said once the account has been verified he would send the requested amount, it still sounded fishy i started asking more questions and asked to his name and the Representative name their name apparently are Peter smith and Daniel both had very thick=k accents which was again fishy. I asked to speak to a manager, he started to get defensive and hung up the phone. I then googled Light stream financial and asked them about this they had no information on me and didn’t recognize the number the guys had called me from. I reported the information to my bank. They continue to call me again and said his name was martin fisher with a thick accent.
