Complaint / review text:
Got an email saying I was approved for a $7000 personal loan. I have not used the real "Advance America" before. So was listing to what James had to say... At first James calls me, and proceeds to tell me I can have the $7000. They will deposit $986.00 and I can pay it back with $250 payments for 24 months. Meaning I would pay $1000 interest over the course of the loan. So I agree to listen to the terms while researching phone numbers, company name, etc. Red flags came up when I typed in the name of the company and put in IL pay loan. The contact number that he called from was. I would call the number back and it would say you're not allowed to call this number from this phone.
James wanted me to send them as much money as I could starting with what is available in the account from the fake deposited that they created, and tried to put in my account. The bank tried to approve the money that was placed into the account, but they contacted me and let me know that the deposited was invalid and that any money withdrawing from the account would result in a negative balance.
I keep all the emails that the person James sent to me and the phone messages and account number used to try and deposit money into my bank account. There was no loan agreement sent to me. There was no logo in their emails. They used a personal email address with their so called business email ()?"If you will not pay this amount back to us then we are sorry to say you that we have to freeze your account and your ssn for making a fraud with your company then you will never be able to open any bank account."
