    Loan Scam

    We were just scammed out of a couple thousand dollars, we went on line and were looking for mortgage loaners that would deal with us as our credit scores are not great, we found a site put our application in, and were phoned by a company by the name of Beswick & Mel Liquid Consolidation Inc. They are in Toronto Ontario, the man by the name of Ron Meyor was our agent, the call out number was 416-682-7000, and the number we had to call back on was 1-888-813-9268, I asked about this and he replied that this was to protect the loaner from being constantly hounded for money. We were told that before we were to be given the money we had to use a insurance company to secure our loan. We were told that we were to send the money via Western Union, and to send it to a Geneva Smith in Halifax Nova Scotia. We kept in contact with Ron, and was told that the next morning we would have the money deposited into the account by the next morning. The next morning we were contacted and told to send more money for the total sum $5000.00. I should also remember to say that we were sent a loan papers to look at by email, so he could should us they were legit, the papers of course were bogus, the name of the company was not the same, the numbers were not the same or dissconnected. The company on top of the letter head also said the company was out of New York NY.. when questioned why the different places, he said with a snicker that it was there head of the company.
    We had our final confrontation, with Ron today, and told him we were not going to send anymore money, he got very defensive with us, and told us fine we would get our refund with in 30 to 90 business days, my husband told him we were going to the rcmp, and he told us that we would never see our money again then. the final call back number is 1-416-316-0536, this wass the new one he gave us today.
    We asked why the last number was disconnected and he told us that he was given a premotion and that the phones were being moved around, and that why we were given this last number. He said his old boss name was Ricki Polo, and the private lender name was Walter Sourski (swaski) We just want no one else to be frauded by these people, and if it sounds to good to be true, ....it is..

    Re: Loan Scam

    sorry, this is common scam, "advance fee fraud". was already common before anybody had internet - the ads were in the classified sections of newspapers and magazines.

    everything you were told is false. the person you sent your money to is not a loan agent or insurance agent. western union will let any wino pick of your money, if he has the transaction number , the amount, and the name of the person that sent it, all the info you provided by email to the scammer.

    sorry, again. you were tricked, your money is gone. you don't know the right name or address to send the police.

    check and see if your home owners policy covers you against theft by fraud or perhaps you can deduct the loss from your taxes.

    @ chicklet2011
    Sorry to read that you lost money to a "fake loan scammer" but happy that you found Scam.com to post your story.

    Thanks for posting the names used, address and phone numbers from that scammer. You could post up the email addresses, the emails themselves and even the fake documents that the scammer is using, it will help make your post more googlable for other suspicious potential victims to find when looking for information.

    Your money is long gone and there is no way for you get it back, sorry. You can fill out a report with the local law enforcement agency with one of the fake names that scammer uses, one of his free email addresses that he uses and his current paid-for-in-cash cell phone number but it is highly unlikely that the rcmp will be able to find your scammer with such information.

    Now that you have responded to a scammer, you are on his 'sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of great loans, reimbursement programs for scam victims, lottery winnings, millions in the bank, valuables found by military personnel and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram.

    For future reference, Western Union and moneygram do not verify anything on the form the sender fills out, not the name, not the street address, not the country, not even the gender of the receiver, it all means absolutely nothing. The clerk will not bother to check ID and will simply hand off your cash to whomever walks in the door with the MTCN# and question/answer. Neither company will tell the sender who picked up the cash, at what store location or even in what country your money walked out the door. Neither company has any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever.

    Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don't bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn't worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash.

    Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer.

    If you google "advanced fee fraud", "fake loan Western Union scam" or something similar you will find hundreds of posts from victims and near-victims of this type of scam.
