Royal Bank of Scotlandloan fees


Thank you for reading this email. I am involved in a ‘Non collateral loan’ with a group who claim to be account reps for the Royal Bank of Scotland. I have paid a series of payments in order to close this loan, as directed by these account officers. The first was a $2500 ‘Cost of transfer fee’, I am told this is a fee the UK requires to transfer money out of the country. Is that true? Then I discover that there is a ‘Non residential tax fee” of $3500 that must be paid before the loan closes. I have paid these via Western Union to a Wynne Daniel, the account rep. His address is [protected]
Now, I have been approved with only sending these moneys and my scanned driver license. There is an account set up in my name with the loan amount of $150, 000. I see on their website. During the downloading process I was asked for a COT code( that prompted the $2500 payment) After I sent that I was given a code . I attempted to download the transfer only to be stopped by another request for the Non residential Tax of $3500. Now that is paid the latest is this Anti Terrorist code that needs to be issued by the ‘ British high court’ for a fee of $2400! Help me figure this out. The page with the access to my account page is I have been given an account number with a password. At the member log in I type in my account number and am taken to a page that has my info. That is where I go to download the loan funds. The account reps do not know their own process, because they did not disclose any of these charges. They do not write or speak well, and I have not been able to get any clarification as to their legitimacy. Please Help! My phone number is in Seattle WA USA, [protected]
I have repeatedly tried to call the RBS in London from my home phone in Seattle. It is impossible to reach any one. The lines are constantly busy, according to the operator. I have written a long email like this directly to the RBS and I have received no reply. Can You Help?
Thank You,
Dan Stiglich

    The fake bank will tell you that is the only payment you have to make but in the unlikely event you are issued a COT Code, the transfer process will run into other unforeseen "difficulties." You will never be able to transfer money that of course does not exist. No legitimate bank will make you pay upfront for you to access your own money. Follow the golden rule: "if it sounds too good to be true, it is." The fake bank exists for one reason: to rob you of your money. Everything is a lie about them as is the money they claim to supposedly have placed in your account with them.

    Stay clear!
