I was definitely scammed from this company on 10/28/11. I signed a contract for a personal loan, and even wired $1500 to secure it. The contract looked legitimate. Of course I never rec’d the loan. Now my accoun is in the negative, my car might get repossessed and i may get evicted.
Consumer Action Taken:
I have called DOZENS of times in an attempt to resolve this. I have left numerous messages for a Mr. Harris. He has returned my call only once, and it just figures, it was the one time I wasn’t available so he left a message and I haven’t been able to reach him. I have spoken to Bob Evans, who says he doesn’t know what happened, and doesn’t have access to my account anymore, even though he was my initial contact to start this process. I spoke with him today, 11/22, and he still claims they are a legitimate company, and that he would contact the accounting dept. for me to initiate my refund. I said that I wanted to speak to him later today, to find out what is being done. Funny, though.. I just tried to call back (a little over 2 hours later) and it seems to be disconnected.. and I can’t locate their website anymore.
We sent a letter to the company at the address given by the consumer and asked them to publicly respond to this complaint.
