Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

I received an email after multiple searches for payday loan options. I received an email stating I was approved for a 5000 loan. I called the number provided and received a voicemail stating the person was Enrique Jimenez and to please leave a message. I received a phone call back from someone claiming to be Enrique Jimenez who had a different accent than what was on the voicemail. He repeated some information that I had entered in multiple sites that look for lenders who will approve a payday loan, including my bank routing number and my account number. He stated they would send verification money in the amount of 885 and I would need to send back 800 via Western Union at any WalMart. 80 would be mine for any expenses incurred for sending the money back. I actually sent back 880. He then requested that I take a picture of the receipt and send it to a different phone number. He then said it would be sent to their Western Union representative and once approved, they would release the funds of 5000. This person posing as Enrique has a professional sounding spiel, calls back promptly, and is willing to stay on the phone with you to make sure you get the correct money order. He will state the verification money needs to be sent back within an hour or the loan will be forfeit and they reverse the verification. He knows the difference between a WalMart to WalMart money transfer and a Western Union money order. He will not accept any other type of money order saying they don’t have reps that can verify those. He will let you know his hours of operation and will contact you back when he says he will. There are multiple sites that have MaximusMoney listed as a valid lender.
