I responded to an ad in a jobs flyer that stated money to lend, I was contacted a week or so later by this company who said I was approved for a loan.
They faxed me a 6 page contract and had me sign pages 3 & 5 and requested a copy of my I.D.and had me fax these copies back to them.
The criteria to receive this loan was to put up a collateral payment of $450.00 which inturn would of been applied to the repayment of the loan.
I was advised by this company to send the money by money gram to a lady by the name of : Marilyn Bogan to an address of : city:Churchill, state:Manitoba, country:Canada
and upon doing so to contact them and supply the reference number and the loan would be processed and funds sent via money gram in one hour to me.
Well needless to say it didn't work like that.
I waited the hour and was not contacted, so I made contact with the company and requested the status? They advised me that the private lender wanted additional collateral.
I advised the company that I was not able to come up with the additional $450.00 and now what?
They(An Alledged Supervisor of this company by the name of
:Norman Shaw) told me to give him 20 minutes and call him back.
I did this and upon making contact he stated that the company(Equal Opportunity) was going to put up $200.00 for me and I needed to come up with the other $250.00. I was able to borrow these funds and sent them as advised by them at the same person as mentioned above, after doing this the man, Norman Shaw stated the loan would be processed and sent within the hour.
Again, this did not happen.
So contact couldn't be made till the following day at which time I made contact and spoke to this man, He then stated that the private lender mentioned above rejected the $200.00 that they stated they were putting up?? I said what?? So I asked now what? The answer was I had to now come up with the other $200.00. I advised them that was imposible and now what? They then said that they would put me up for a refund and that was going to take 30 business days to receive, also that someone from their company would be making contact with me prior to this to check address ect... to send the cashiers check to me.
Well times up, no contact by them, no check, and now both phone lines are temporary out of order and have been for going on 2 weeks now.
Their web site is still active and I've sent message but no responce?
*** ATTN:If there is anyone out there that has ANY INFO or has been in contact with this company or has been scam'ed by them PLEASE CONTACT ME Immediately these F_CKS got me for $715.46 Unexceptable, I'm not going out like that...
