personal loans / Scammed

1 Chicago, IL, United States Review updated:

This company claims that they can give you a persoonal lloan.Being in a bad financial situation and wanting to come out of it, I fell for the scam.I am a former mortgage professional and had a gut feeling that it was a scam, but I was desperate.Bill collectors were knocking at the door and my wife of 18 years was losing sleep(you know the drill).These folks stated that they could help.So I sent them 6 monthly payment up front.They then stated that(because of the credit) I had to send 6 more payments.I sent that.I was beginning to get agitated.Every time I asked a question, they would get upset! Like I was the one that was not performing!If it were not sad, it would be funny!But they then came back and stated that I needed to have insurance(because of bad credit).Thats when I they up the BS flag! They claim that I can have my money back in 30 business days.
THEY ARE RUTHLESS! I will probably lose my home/car/everything and I told them this.I actually told them that if they could not do the loan to pass on it.Funny!BUt not so Funny

    Has anybody ever heard of this company or the CEO Carl Thomas, they claim to offer unsecured loans with only the purchase of a insurance policy to cover the loan and they want the funds to them sent via western union before they will wire you your money

    I am simply amazed that otherwise intelligent people would seek out these internet sites to borrow money.
    Have any of you EVER borrowed money and had to pay the first 6 payments up front before getting the loan?

    Maybe you didn't know that if they request a money gram sent to Canada or any other country it is a DEFINITE SCAM.

    It is a well known fact that money sent by money gram is NOT traceable and therefore NOT recoverable.

    I am very sorry for your situation. They probably wanted you to send a money gram, didn't they?
    If they can get you to send them money the first time, they will then find other excuses to get you to send more money time after time until you smell a rat and then stop sending them money.

    ALL internet loan companies are SCAMMERS. As a matter of fact, all internet ads are scams in one way or another.

    Legitimate loan companies DO NOT require any payment up front to get the loan and there are NO legitimate loan companies on the internet.

    Stay away from the so-called Google money making sites or ANY work at home sites, also. They, too, will scam you big time!

    Forget class action lawsuits, the only winners there are the lawyers and the court systems.

    Ben Davis of Eastgate Lending Service convinced me to send $1100 to a "Cerina Alicia Lee" of "Kingston, Jamaca" for I was promised a $7000 loan. They have all my banking info and a copy of my drivers licence. What do I do now?

    Do you notice all these websites have the same tacky music that comes up. Isn't it illegal for people to put up websites that aren't legit? Shouldn't they have to register somewhere so it is not misleading? I mean I'm am surprised no one is fighting this issue somewhere in the world. This is so wrong. When you go into a business you usually see their certificate on the wall somewhere, if not you at least know where they are if they sell you something faulty. But this? Come on. The Government should have a department that specializes in researching all these "pseudo" companies.

    personal loans - Poor Service and utter stupidity
    Nedbank
    South Africa

    I went into the branch and I applied for a personal loan. I provided all the necessary documentation and was informed that I actually qualify for more than what I actually requested. None the less I formalised the process and waited for the approval or so I thought. Two days later I received an SMS telling me my loan has been declined. Why? The person who did employment verification has been told that I am on a 8 year contract with the company. The loan payback time is 24 months and I still have 7 years of my contract to work for the company. Despite my disappointment I called the call centre and was kindly informed that even if I had a 20 year employment contract with the company they would not approved my loan. Reference for call 5144558; dated 19 May 2011.

    Advice to the banks - hire people who can assist your clients not frustrate them. At the end of the day we are the reason you operate on a daily basis. My contact: 082 389 9978.
    Now can someone who has the intellect to assist with my problem kindly get in contact with me!!!
