Greenpark Lending Firm / Greenpark Lending Firm is a scam
This company is a total scam and they prey on those who are financially challenged and strapped for cash. In any normal circumstances one would question it but when you are financially strapped and you're desperate you're not thinking straight. And this is how their scam works: I got a call from a Julia Chambers from Greenpark Lending saying that my loan application was approved for $5, 000 with an interest rate of 8.50% and that they need me to sign the loan papers they faxed over along with a copy of my driver's license and in order to show good faith to the lender they require 5 months of advanced payment which will be applied towards the loan and the first payment would not be due until 5 months later. The money must be wired via MoneyGram to the broker in Canada which they claim they will reimburse you any fees for the MoneyGram. They get their money and they release the funds to your account within 24 hours. 24 hours goes by and funds never got released but instead I got a call from a Bruno Capello who claimed that Julia "misrepresented" the terms of the loan and was fired and he apologized. What they actually needed was 10 months advance payment and to fix that they increased the loan to $7, 000 and the first payment will not be due until 10 months later and upon wiring directly to the "private" lender who's also in Canada the funds would be released within 3 hours. 3 hours goes by you call Bruno Capello and he does not answer so you get patched to his "supervisor" Stanley Higgins who apologizes and says that the funds were not released because there was an insurance fee of $1, 000 that was not paid. I told him nothing in the contract states that and I was never told such a thing. He said he didn't have time to explain and would issue refund money by certified check sent regular mail and that Bruno has left for the day. Direct deposit was not an option for the refund. Funny thing was I called back after I spoke to Stanley and Bruno answered but once he heard who I was and I started to confront him, he hung up on me over and over again. Finally I called Stanley the next day and asked why he lied and he said I was never suppose to have call Bruno back and that I should have dealt with him directly. He was unable to provide any type of evidence or tracking information on the refund and he cursed and used all kinds of foul languages, calling me stupid and dropped the F word all over and then hung up. Amazingly he told me that the refund check was already sent out and he knew that without asking who he was talking to! And even more amazingly is that Julia Chambers who was supposedly fired answered the phone when I called back and hung up on me. I've filed a complaint with the Attorney General's office and the Better Business Bureau. I wanted to warn anyone who has come in contact with these crooks to report them and DO NOT FALL FOR THEIR SCAM!
