I started out looking online for a loan to consolidate some bills. I have lousy credit so I was having a pretty hard time of it. I was contacted on the phone by a company by the name of Rockwell Financial Group in Miami Florida offering me a $5,000 personal loan at 6%. I asked them to FAX me the information which they did. They wanted $900.00 by Western Union to process my loan in 24 hours. I made the mistake of trusting them and drained my bank account depending on the $5,000 to be there the next day. The very next day they called me wanting $900.00 more. I told them there was no way and they promised to refund my money by the following Monday. That never happened. Well I thought okay, maybe I can cash in one of my life insurance policies and at least recoup my losses. The Insurance company told me it would take 2 weeks to process. I panicked, I took out 5 payday loans to try and make my car payment and mortgage hoping that the insurance policy would be enough. Two weeks later I was only able to pay off 1 of them with the cash from my life insurance policy and now I can't pay the rest. I have already closed my bank account and reopened a new one to prevent the crooks that ran off with my $900.00 from dipping into my bank account since, of course, I had to give them my account information so they could "make their deposit." I am so scared right now. I cannot sleep or eat. My professional life is suffering due to my lack of the ability to concentrate on anything but this mess. Can anyone help me??? I




You need to report this to your govt. authorities, AG, I believe these people are under investigation. There are others on this site that have fallen for this scam. (Paying money upfront for a loan and never getting a loan) You will find plenty of help on this site in dealing with your internet pdls, many of us have been in your situation and felt the same stress. What state are you in and what pdl companies are you dealing with?

They are now calling, some of them daily, to ask for my new account information. I have heard that they can garnish wages and fear for my job if that happens as I have only been there about 2 1/2 months. What should I do?

Annette, if you register with this site, you can get a free consultation with a debt counselor. They can discuss your situation as far as the payday loans and explain the options available. It is possible to consolidate all of your payday loans into one affordable monthly payment, which a debt consolidation company would then disburse to the payday lenders until the loans are paid off. They would also deal with the payday lenders on your behalf, so the harassing phone calls will stop. There are a lot of members on this forum who are working with debt consolidations companies to take care of their payday loans.

Tiffiny 99,
Thank you for the words of encouragement. When I registered with the site, they referred me to Consumer credit counseling of America. I called them and they said they do not deal with payday loans. When I registered, the form only asked how much unsecured debt I have, not what type, maybe that is the problem. I really need help FAST.

Wow I was begining to think we were the only ones.. My son just went thru a similar scam, I'm afraid, with a co. called Rockwell Lending. He saw the ad in a newspaper. We are in North Florida. He also paid over $900.00 for a 5,000.00 loan, also using western union and when the loan did not appear in his account, he called and was told it would take an additional $700.00.. He told them no and to refund his money this was 3 weeks ago and no refund. Would appreciate any advice anyone can give us.. Would love to get others together that have been scamed by this co and maybe get a class action suit. I do not want to let this go.. I am so sick of people getting ripped off but these low life pieces of trash..

P.S. after numerous phone calls regarding refund and not getting anywhere I told them I was going to a local TV station that helps people with these problems and I was told.. Quote: Go ahead.. Get off my phone you dumb f*ck. She were on speaker phone so my son and I both heard this. We were shocked and relized then it was more than likely a scam.

To: Milkmaid2001.. I am so sorry to hear of your problems with this.. I wish there was something we cound do to get our money back.
How do we go about reporting this to AG.?
Thanks

RICHFIELD LENDING TOOK ME FOR $1800.00. I'M NOT 100% POSITIVE BUT I THINK BOTH OF THESE COMPANYS ARE RAN BY THE SAME PEOPLE. THEIR PHONE SYSTEM IS THE SAME , THE PITCH IS THE SAME AND THEY WANT THE MONEY SENT TO CANADA ALSO. BE AWARE OF BOTH OF THESE COMPANYS THEY ARE BOTH SCAMMERS. PLEASE DON'T ALLOW THEM TO SCAM YOU LIKE SOME OF THE REST OF US DID.
