Applied a loan of S$20,000 from Skygroup finance on 4/10/14. Registered office in New Delhi, India. From day one of application, I was asked fees after fees payable via western union. This loan company introduced me via email n subsequently via phone to a Mr AHMED from Reserve Bank Of India, supposedly the director of international transfer.
Mr AHMED would keep promising loan would be transferred after this last fee but his promises were all empty. He even can email letter of agreement etc but this guy is a real crook and scammer. My last remittance to him was 15/12/14. Till today 23/1/15 I have not heard from him by phone or yet to receive an email.
Loan officer claimed I should try to get my fees refunded from AHMED. He shifted his responsibility to Ahmed. All these fees were paid via western union and Ibrahim was the receiver. Both of them took a total of singapore dollars seven thousand plus and especially mr Ahmed (RBI) I have not heard from him.
Btw, someone by the name of Roel....who swore he got a loan from Skygroup finance introduced me to Skygroup Finance. He swore he gotten his loan without hassle. He advertised aggressively in Craiglist and now I suspect they work hand in gloves.
Jus a word of advise, never trust these overseas lenders!!
Better Business Bureau advised borrowers should NEVER NEVER pay upfront fees. Legit lenders deduct any fees from the loan amount and borrowers should NEVER remit fees via western union, Moneygram etc.
Please do not trust Internet lenders, all frauds, scammers!
Refund of fees
