In response to the post about Terrion Financial, I recently went through the same ordeal with David Millban from Terrion Financial. I was given a loan agreement, which I though was legitimate. I agreed to wire money in order to take out a $5, 000 loan. This is by far the stupidest thing I could ever do! I wired $859 to someone named Robert Mendez in Ajax, Canada and I too was told to let the teller know that I was wiring money to a relative, if asked what the wire is for. I then received a phone call the next day from a guy named Jay Cromwell (who sounded Asian), and was told that my loan agreement was voided because the typical initial deposit for a $5, 000 loan is $1, 400! WHAT?! I was told that I would be receiving a refund within 10 business days. I spoke with this Jay Cromwell just about 10 business days ago. He said that David Millban, my so-called "loan representative" apparently did something wrong with the loan contract, which I had already signed and faxed back. Seriously, what is wrong with some people? Here I am trying to rebuild my credit, and being trustworthy with a company that seemed legitimate! I should have known something was fishy about the whole ordeal when I went to wire funds to Canada! But, like an idiot, I was desperate and needed money. Now I am broke until the 1st! So I tried calling the telephone number listed on my "loan contract" : [protected], and it is conveniently not available. I also did a Google search to see if there was another number for this company listed and that number has been disconnected: [protected]. I'm so angry I don't even know what to do. I'm angry at myself for falling for something I felt was a scam, but went through with it anyway!
Any advice as to who I should contact regarding trying to get my money back?
