I was contacted by this company and I was told that I was approved for a loan in the amount of $15, 000 pending a collateral payment of $1500 (10% of the loan amount). At first I resisted, but at that point, I needed the loan badly and this was the only financial institution that got back to me. So, I spoke with a "Catherine Edwards" and received the information needed to send the collateral payment. I needed to send it via western union to the attention of Timothy Henderson, Alberta, Canada. In turn, she emailed me loan documents to sign.
The money was supposed to be wired to my account within 24-48 hours of collateral receipt. 3 days laterno money. When I tried to get a hold of Catherine Edwards after many busy signals and disconnections she wa always in a meeting. Then a "Chris" called me. He stated that there was a problem with my loan and because of my credit history they needed more money. $750 more to secure the loan. I thought about it, said no, said yes, and then got a hold of Chris and got the information of where to send the money. Chris promised a 3 hour wire. So I did it again. And one day later...no money.
After calling hundreds of times and not getting a hold of Chris or Catherine, heart pounding, knowing how stupid I wasI was contacted by a "Rita Whriter", explaining to me that again my account was on hold and they needed more money, after screaming at her, explaining to her, I demanded a full refund of the money I sent. She told me it would be refunded to me within 2 to 4 weeks. Still, reminding me that if I paid another $750 I could have the money!! I am now entering the fourth weekNO REFUND YET!!!!
If you feel in your gut that you are being scammed, please please please don't go any further. I had the feeling all along, but I was so desperate, I went forward anyway. Now I am out over $2000!!
