When I contacted him back he proceeded to send me another email:

Thank you for choosing ROYALTON DIRECT LENDING to assist and meet your financial needs. Please sign and return this document as soon possible to complete the loan procedure. I did this via fax along with sending my passport and driver’s license to them with a letter of employment.

Richard Hamilton advised that I would have to Western Union the default/collateral deposit of $695.84 to a Rojique Walcott, not to say to Western Union that it was for business because they would charge me additional fees (which now I know was part of their scam) and that the wiring fee would be reimbursed to me. Once the money was received I would then have my loan funds of $7000.00 wired to my bank account. In June 6, 2019, $695.84 + $8.00 wiring fee was wired and I called and gave Mr.Hamilton the tracking number. He advise dthat my funds would be released to me and wired to my bank account.

4 days later the money never was wired to my account and when I called him back he advised that there was now there is a brokerage fee of $457.00 that needed to be sent to the same person-once this was done, my funds would definetly be released-well they werent and on June 14, 2019 I was advise dthat there was a $459.87 exchange fee now-This was the last fee to be paid and most defeibntly my funds would be released-

THEY WERE NOT!!! They are now telling me that there was an error when the exchange rate was given and NOW another $400 and change needed to be wired! I ADVISED THAT THERE IS NO MORE MONEY TO BE SENT This is why i applied for a loan! I told them that I wasnted to cancel the loan and have all of my monies along with wiring fees returned to me-Well it has been 3 weeks and I still have not received anything-I was also given USPS tracking numbers that my refund was being sent but when you track them, they show that the label was printed but never scanned. The last time I asked for a tracking number for the refund, I was told that there was not one and that I needed to be patient and it would arrive-This past week I started to deal with another person Joseph Malken, he stated that I just needed to send the balance due and that my funds would be released. I told him that i spoke with Mr.Hamilton on 6/28/19 and said I was NOT continuing the loan and that a refund for 2 weeks now was to be sent to me. He(Mr,Malken) stated that he would send me the refund and I would have it by Friday, today, 7/19/19. I even sent a follow up email and called and he stated that he did receive the email and that we were on target. I called yesterday for the tracking number and was told that Mr.Malken would not be in until tomorrow, 7/19/19. When I called today, i was advised that he wouldn’t be in until 1pm-when I called at 1pm, told he would npot be in until Monday and now I need to speak with Mr.Hamilton-when transferred they hung up on me. When I called back they stated that he would be in at 3pm-I even advised that i would contact my lawyer if I did not receive the refund. I finally made a formal complaint with Western Union today and I also will be seeing my local police dept today-I am out of $1,636.71
