What a huge scam this turned out to! beacon financial group, supposedly located in Charlotte, NC, is nothing but a bunch of lying crooks. They really do seem very legitimate when they contact you 'out of the blue' to tell you 'we got you approved for $5000.00' by a private investor. This investor only needs you to make (4)payments of $225.00, the first (4)loan payments as collateral for the loan. So, like a fool, I gather every dime i have one week before Christmas, and Money gram these criminals $914.16 for the loan. I sent this money to Canada to a 'Susan Deloris Dimmick' in Grandview, Which turns out to be Ontario. My loan representative 'James Carpenter' immediately called me needing the reference number for the money gram, So i gave it to him, and then he ask for my Banking Information, and I gave that to, He said it was to transfer my new loan into my checking account.(i'm so stupid') So here i am stoked, ready to finish Christmas, consolidate a few debts, Feeling good. The next day, I call James Carpenter to find out what time the funds would be in my acount. He says, by 5pm. Two hours later i receive a phone call
from Customer Service at Beacon Financial Group, telling me the investor has re-reviewed my credit, and an additional (4)collateral payments will be needed to recieve the loan. I was on the internet by now, researching this, and came across another Beacon story explaining the same thing. I immediately ask for a refund of the ($916.00) I had already sent. He got very loud and obnoxious, threatening to give the refund to charity, and ruin my credit even worse if I contacted the Authorities.
When i called my loan representative back, James Carpenter, he acted as though he knew nothing about it, and that My file was locked from his view. LIAR-LIAR, I called back customer service and explained i would be seeing this through to the end. I dont really expect my money back, but i promise not to give up, until someone makes these people pay for hurting my family, and other people. If anyone has any other information concerning this scam with Beacon Financial Group, Please contact me on here. Lets end these people!
