Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan
I was contacted by Infonity loan after filling out multiple applications online for a loan. I was told that I was accepted & would have my money the next business day. The next business day comes, still no funds. Then I was told that there would be a fee to use western union the money to me, which then I would have it ASAP. I told them I would have the money the next day. Now I’ve borrowed the money from a family member to cover these fees. I contact them the next morning to tell them to move forward to the next step which I was told I would have to purchase a google play card for $69.72. I purchased one for $70. So they were telling me that since it was for $70 & not the exact amount, western union couldn’t accept it & I would have to buy another for the exact amount. When I refused & told them to figure it out , I called back to see why I wasn’t getting an answer. They insisted on me getting the google play card, so o called the western union customer service line , where they told me that they don’t accept google play cards & that they don’t have any kind of partnership with a company called infinity loan. When I call back to confront them about the information I received, I was given the run around, told that “I look hot when I’m angry”, and hung up on. When I called back & threatened to get the authorities involved & hung up on them, they immediately called back to talk to me sensibly & try to work something out. I let them know that I wanted my money back for the google play card & still have yet to receive that.
