My wife and I were in desperate need of a loan to pay our overdue bills after having a child a short time back. We applied for many loans. The Hawkins group called and explained to me that I was approved by a personal lender named Chris Stevens but I had to send $500 dollars as a guarantee.
Being desperate I sent the money. The loan of $7000 was to be wired to my account the next day. When the money did not show up I called back and talked to Susan, who guaranteed the money would be wired to my account within the hour if I would wire an additional $650. I wired my paycheck because of her guarantee. When the money was still not there I called back and was told that Chris Stephens considered me to high risk and went back on the loan.
I asked when I would receive a refund, and I was told by Friday (3 days away from my call). Still no money. I called back several times and received the run around, rudeness, and was hung up on several times.
One supposed supervisor over accounting, agreed with my wife that she was troublesome. He was very rude to her and hung up on her. I will never trust an on line company again. I sent a total of $1, 234 dollars including the wiring fees.
I am afraid I will never see my money back even though I have retained the receipts of where I sent it.
