Beware of Scammers Using Western Union
Reports Submitted to us in 2012 and 2013...
Remember: We will never ask you to send us money in advance of a loan and we have no up front fees. Though Western Union and Money Gram are excellent services, we advise that you never use them or any other medium to wire cash in advance of a loan. Legitimate lenders will never require an up front payment from you! Learn What to do if you have been victimized. All reports are anonymous. We simply do not have the resources to investigate all of the reports. The important information here is the consistent story line. We hope you have found our website BEFORE wiring someone money for a loan. Read some of these stories. If you have already become a victim, you might notice some similarities.
Though there is nothing we can do to help you recover your money, we are hopeful that your testimony will help educate other consumers. If you are the owner of a business that has been victimized by the scammers (using your good name), and you would like for us to make a note of it here, please let us know using the submit form.
Please note: We are having a difficult time keeping
up with these scam stories because of the high volume, but we are posting
them as fast as we can. Some we can't post (about 80%) because of redundancy
(others reporting the same scam). The bottom line is: the stories are
ALWAYS the same. We can't repeat it enough: It doesn't matter what the
name of the company is -- if they are asking for money to be sent to
them up front for ANY reason, it is a scam. If you are asked
to send money, then go searching online for the validity of the company,
you are wasting time. Your instincts are already telling you such an
operation is a scam -- so don't do it.
