Westbury Ventures - Internet fraud!

This company went into my brand new checking account & took out $380.00 on 1/07/08. But wait it gets even better, they originally tried to take out money as far December 21. Mind you, the bank has charged me account for all transactions that has come into my account! When you try to make contact with this company, all you get is the run around and never who they are or what their full intentions are & how did you receive my bank account information. At that point, they leave you on hold & never return.

No information on the Internet or yellow pages about who there are or there parent affiliations. Please be aware of this company & be careful of all or any Internet transactions!

I defaulted on a loan with this company. I was able to get in contact with Westbury Ventures and set up arrangements for the loan to be paid with one payment from my checking account. They stated that there would be no one constantly going into my account and that the payment would be taken on the day we scheduled. Leading up to the day that the payment was to be taken they continued to go into my account and collect money. I called and informed someone named Ms. Lee and she stated she would look into it and give me a call back. She never called back. Basically this company has continued to go into my account and take whatever is there and as a result I am now receiving numerous overdraft fees on my checking account, so far totaling about $500. I reported fraud activity to my bank. This company wanted me to set up this arrangement, but did absolutely nothing that they said they would do. I acknowledge that I owe money but if they tell me to set up an arrangement, I do it, but they do not honor it, what else can I do? Plz advise smb!

I recieved a payday loan in March of 2005, 3 days ago I got a call from Westbury Ventures an account manager named Rebecca Martin reminded me of my $300.00 loan from back in 2005 she said my balance was over $840 since my loan was old and I had not made any payments. I don't even know if I made any payments on this loan. I was pissed that I owed this much for a $300.00 loan, so she said that she would see what she could do and gave me this #800-859-6439 ext 3222 . I called back the next day and she worked with me and she settled my account for a $390.00 moneygram settlement. She sent me a paid in full reciept. I am still pissed off but at least I won't have these people calling me and they did settle out.

To: Contract holders

Westbury Ventures is the owning management company of the financiers that have funded your internet payday loan account. After extensive review it has been brought to our attention that most of our breached contracts have been here for far too long. Be assured that at this time we have finished verifying that funds were deposited into an account that was listed under your name and social security number from one or more companies that we own, our contracts are not meant to go into default but are equipped with proper terms and language in order for us to protect ourselves against loss if such default happens to occur. Also it is not required that you as the contract holder of our outstanding funds be notified of our intensions to recover your full balance due through your current financial institution. At this point we will not allow you to have any voluntary control over when and how you reimburse your contract and we will hold you liable for the full amount of the loan plus any fees associated with the loan.



We as a company have offered you multiple terms for resolution of your contract. Our company is never interested in carrying matters this far and would rather make voluntary arrangements in our office to resolve the contract balance but our hands are tied now it is up to you to do the right thing and repay your loan.

I foyu have received any emails or calls from them do not pay. I was told that I would receive a letter be email and regular mail that my balance was paid in full on Jan. 25, 2008 and they again took $160 out of my account on Feb. 15, 2008. I had been dealing with Brad Harris who told me that the $160 we would be back in my account on Feb. 18, 2008 and it wasn't so I did a stop payment form and a dispute form with my Financial Institution and the same day I filled those forms out they reversed those transactions from Westbury. I still have not received anything stating that my account is paid in full and closed and they just sent me the above email today. I am sending them a Cease and Desist Letter today.

I would take a look at some of the advice posted here: /URL removed/ At least in relation to your banking matters.

With regard to Westbury Ventures, I would advise reporting them to your State Attorney General's office, the AG's office of the State of Nevada, and the FTC. Addtionally, start corresponding with them via mail -- certified return receipt is best so that you have a means of tracking the correspondence. Request documentation of the loan, any contracts, and amounts paid thus far. They are statutorily required to provide this information to you. You can send snail mail to them at: 2756 N. Green Valley Parkway, Suite 870, Henderson, NV 89014. Their fax is 800-853-7221.

Good Luck!!!

Kitty
