Complaint / review text:
I was solicited over the phone by an Indiam-sounding guy who said his name was Tony Gonzalez, and that he was a Mexican. He told me that I had been approved for a $3000 loan to be paid back within 15 months at $219 per month. He wanted me to Western Union or Money Gram $250 to his boss, Shanique Manghram. He stated that there was a $50 processing fee and he could not explain what the other $200 was for, just that once I sent it, I could get my funds within 3-4 hours, which would include the $200 that I had initially sent. Not at all comfortable with why a company would take that kind of risk with ANYONE, so I asked Mr. Tony for a web site and told him that I would call him back after I followed up with the Better Business Bureau. He said okay, and continued to call my cell phone every ten minutes trying to convince me that his commission depended on me making a descision. And just a side note, he also mentioned that Shanique Manghram is a real big shot who wears diamonds and such bling, that she was hardly a scammer, go figure how this was supposed to help his plead. Anyway, BIG THANKS, to those people taking their time to report such incidents. I'm here on this forum because I feel as though this is my duty to anyone cautious enough to check for a scam, or to anyone who may have unfortunately been a victim.
