North American Lending / Scam and fraud!
applied for a $7000.00 loan with this company. I was sent a 'pre-approval' email. The contact person was Anthony Stevens at the 866 number x805. I spoke with him and documentation of my income, identification and ssn were requested. These items were faxed. I was informed I was approved for the loan and the terms and conditions would be faxed to me, but 'Anthony' explained the terms over the phone. I was informed I would need to put down a $700.00 (10%) deposit as insurance. This would be for the companies protection in the event I could not pay in the future.
When I received the email from firstname.lastname@example.org, I was given instructions to wire the money to 'Anna Rodriguez' person to person to Hamilton, Ont and if questioned at Western Union, to say it was a 'loan to a friend'. I never heard anything again!
