They asked me if I still needed a loan I said yes they verified all my information name, address, bank name, bank routing number, bank account number, and place of employment. They then asked me how much I needed and I said $500.00 they told me that the minimum that they could lend was $1000.00 but I needed to prove my ability to pay the monthly payments of $100.00 by putting $100.00 on a Green Dot money PAK card and giving them the pin number on the back of the card once I purchased it and the funds would be available in my account within 5 minutes. I complied after which they put another person on the line who then tells me that it will take about 15 minutes to verify the funds. After about 20 minutes he tells me that he would have to call me back. After about 5 minutes I got a call back and he tells me that I have to pay an additional administration fees of $200.00. They told me to put the funds on Vanilla Card and give them the receipt number and they would put me on a three way call with my bank to transfer the funds to include the $300.00 that I had now given them. They told me that it would take about 20 minutes to verify the funds of $200.00. After about 30 minutes they tell me to hold on a little more so I did for another 20 minutes then they tell me that due technical issues they cannot put the funds in my account but will give me a Western Union number for the funds but I must first pay additional fees of $306.00 and they will give me the MTCN number to now pick up $1606.00 which includes the $100.00, $200.00, and now the additional $306.00 that they were asking me to pay. At this point I explained to him that I did not have the $ 306.00 to which they told me to try to borrow it from a family member or friend. I explained to him that if I had the ability to borrow money from family or friends I would not need to borrow money from them to which he says that he would hold the application until I came up with the additional $306.00. I asked him for my $300.00 back at this point to which he tells me that it was not possible at this point. I became very upset with him and he hung up the phone on me. I called back and he kept telling me that he is here for me and that he will give me the opportunity to get the additional $306.00. At this point I demanded my $300.00 back he once again hangs up on me. I called back and I again asked for my money back and he says that it was not possible and that I needed to get the $306.00 and they would give me the $1606.00.Show more...
