Resolved Interstate Capital — Fraud and scam
I had to buy a vehicle because my old one knocked out on me and my sales tax is $800.00, so I went on the web and went to personal loans. I came across cross several applications. After I filled them out. I got a call from a Roger Taylor, he told me that he was with Interstate Capital and I was approved for a $5, 000.00 loan and was I interested I said yes. So he told me that since my credit wasn't that good I would have to secure the loan with $595.00. I told him that I didn't have that. So he e-mailed the loan contract, I looked it over and talked it over with my wife. I called him back and told him that all I had is $500.00, (this was 11/21/07) he said that was okay. He told me to where to wire the money to.
So I wen to Walmart wired the money to some place in Canada, so I called him and told him that I wired the the money and gave him the confirmation no. and he told me that The money would be in my bank account within a few hrs... So I waited for awhile and called my bank and no money, I thought that since it was after 2PM that it wouldn't show up till the next day.
So Thursday 11/22/07 (Thanksgiving Day) I called the bank all day long and still no money. I knew that the office would be closed so I called back Fri. and told him that the money wasn't in my account. He apologized and told me that he for got to tell me that I needed to send $527.00. $318.00 for insurance and $209.00 for the rest of the $95.00 and what ever the Canadian taxes or something, any way I wired him the money. Anyway I didn't get the money and I'm out $1, 058.00.
