First Union Financial Group — Do not give in!
I was contacted by First Union Financial Group, in regards to a loan approval in the amount of $30,000.00. I have been dealing with a Ms. Andi Hernandez as my loan officer.
The pitch is the same as of other's who have been contacted by this company. Ms. Hernandez, had e-mailed me my loan documents to sign and fax back to include my SS card, ID and pay stub. I then will have to make a security payment or collaterial payment which will be credited to my loan for the first 3 months. Should I default in payments I will not receive my deposit.
I have been scamed before, and this time have taken extra measures to ensure that it does not happen again. I had First Union Financial Group, on the phone many of times, questioning them, waiting for someone to slip up with information, or words that I pick up that just does not sound right.
Well, the first week talking with them, they sounded true, and honest. I started to believe them until yesterday, when I was going to send my payment of $1,250.00. I called them before I did anything, I ask to speak to a Peter Sills, I know the guy that I was taling to is him, and so he asked me who? Then replyed kinda stutering this is he. I ask for the information for money gram and he provided me with a persons name of Sharon Smith, Manhatten NY and to use the red form. I said okay and hung up.
I called back 30 minutes later, and said that I am at Wal-Mart, and lost the information could you provide it again so I could send the money, this time he gave me a Sharon Simpson, Manhatten, NY. I then decided to try the blue form on Money Gram, and will require a receive code form First Union Financial Group. Mr. Peter Sills, said that they prefer the payment method using the red form, because it cuts down on taxes and GRT.
I have sent money using Money Gram, in the past to actual business and always was given a receive code and account number to fill out the form for payment. I am very sceptical about sending money to a person whom I was told is a Bonded Carrier. I caught on to there scam, and went grocery shopping instead. At least I know, where the money went.
If you have been contacted by this company! Do not give in! If it sounds to good to be true it probably is a scam. I have bad credit and no one else would approve me on a loan consolidation, and then out of the blue I get approved for $ 30,000.00 at 9% APR for 20years at $ 271.00 a month, yea right!
