prudential lending group / scammed out of $995.58
The company claimed my boyfriend was approved for a $5000 loan but he had to show proof that we had up to 5 months of payments. (Keith Bailey was our "loan agent." )He was instructed to make copies of is DL, two check stubs, and a voided check. Then for his proof of having the 5 months worth of payments he was to send a money gram to a family or friend then we were to make a copy of the reciept and fax it to him as well. Before we could get back to pick up the money it was intercepted in Brooklyn New York 45 mins after he sent it to me. When I went to go pick up the money I was told there was no money there for me. I spoke with an employee from money gram and she had informed me we were scammed. We were told to report it to our local police dept. As soon as we left the store we called the company and they would not pick up our calls. We went to the police dept. the following Monday to file our complaint. The officer called the number and a Mr. Marlone answered stating that he is a Rep at the company. The officer told him that there a complaint being filed agaisnt the company for clients being scammed out of money. Mr. Marlone acted as if he cared and was concerned. Mr. Marlone told the officer that they have been having problems with their agent Keith Bailey and that they think he is stealing from the company... He then stated that Gary Blackwell was the Loan Dept. Manager and he will be in first thing the morning at 8:00am and that if we called back he would have this all taken care of. Even though I am sure that all these people are the same one piece of ### man. We have made several attempts to call and left messages. There has been no answers and no return phone calls.
