    I have a different story. I need some advice. I’m thinking of scamming this company back. I was recently sent an email saying my loan was approved and it had the Advance America logo on it, which I knew was a reputable company, but still something in the back of my mind told me this wasn’t right and this wasn’t really Advance America. Well, I got on the phone with them, and of course, some Indian guy telling me I can get a loan up to $5000 but I need to pay the fee. I don’t even remember the amount. I told them, no way, I had gotten scammed a few weeks ago by a company who asked a $155 fee.

    He said, no problem sir. I know you need this loan. So I tell you what… I’m going to give you $500 of our own money and that way you can still Moneygram the fee back to us.

    So this was different. HE WAS GIVING ME THE MONEY then asking me to repay. I thought, why not. I’m not paying anything. Lets see where this goes. Well, they already had my bank info from an online application. So they put the money in there and I Moneygrammed it back to them. Well, there was a “problem” and I have to do the “process” as he keeps calling it, again. I had a very heated argument with him but he kept saying sir you have nothing to worry about! We will get the money in. He kept saying they were approved with Federal Trade Commission and BBB. So now, in the morning he’s sent even more money to my account.

    My question, I’m thinking of taking this money since I’m sure they are scammers and closing my bank account. Give them a feel of their own game. What do you think?

      If it’s a legit scam, you can keep the money they send you as they can’t go to sue you because they are themselves scammers.

    I was told that I have been approved for a $4000 loan which I honestly applied for through several websites. The gentleman (who spoke with a heavy accent but said his name was Daniel Smith) told me I had to pay $208 first because of inter state taxes then the loan would be for $4208. I told him that I was weary of that and not to confident about the process. He assured me that it was 100% legitimate and he would remain on the phone with me throughout the entire time. I put him on hold and spoke with the MoneyGram employee who very politely told me that it sounded fishy and to avoid the whole thing. I felt the same way but I guess it helped having someone back up my suspicions. Just telling my story to bring awareness to others about this scam.

    I believe I’m being scammed told I was approved for $9,265.00 federal grant money but I must have $263.00 cash.

  • Madeline July 28, 2015 at 12:21 pm

    They want to deposit $800. in my checking account. Withdraw $800. return to QUIT CASH FUNDING . Could this be a SCAM ? I have been approved for $5000. After they receive the $800. They will then deposit the $5000. Is this a scam ?

    • NZgirl August 4, 2015 at 6:11 pm

      Are you buying from them? Or did yu just give then $800 so you can get the $5000? It sounds like a scam…

    • Dylan Zeigler August 18, 2015 at 11:04 pm

    I have a person that contacted me on the website Badoo trying to convince me to she “her” $250 for a new phone. When her brother receives the money she is going to come see me. I knew this was a lie from the first sentence. I have been stringing them along for a couple of days. Is there anything I can do to either expose them as frauds, make them look foolish, or just upgrade my level of aggravation to them. Real scum bags these people. I did fall for something similar to this a couple of years ago and ever since I have been extreemly skeptical of anyone I meet online whether they want money or not.
