Mountainview Lending Group
Victim Location 12603
Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan
I applied for a loan (giving basic info, name, address, requested amount). I was called and notified that I was approved and that they needed the first three months payments upfront. They sent me an application to complete which listed the loan terms, and asked for my bank info to deposit the funds into and a photo of my license. They wanted me to send them $900 via moneygram to Kevin Brenton in Milton, Ontario- Canada. They told me to then call them with the 8 digit ref number and then within an hour they would send me my loan.
I did complete the application and send my license. But once they told me to send money via money gram, red flags went up. I told them, I needed a few days and immediately went to the bank to close my account, before they could try to take any money.
They have contacted me but I’m just very worried about being scammed. They contacted me and said that I have been approved for the loan. But I have no record of what I should do.
