I was a stupid and desperate person. I was scammed out of

This answer was rated:

I was a stupid and desperate person. I was scammed out of $4100 USD from a man named Bryan Gibson, from Nationwide Loan Finance. He was so convincing. We talked about family, religion. I told him we needed a loan that we could make 1 payment every month. He promised and sent documents approving a loan of $120,000 for 20 yrs at 3 percent interest. We are retired (I am disabled) and my husband became very sick last year and lost his part-time job. Is there any way I could get at least some of my money back?

Did you receive the 120,000 and are you in UK. I note you have put dollars?

 

Yours sincerely

NO! I DID NOT RECEIVE A DIME. I LIVE IN THE U.S. HE IS A GENUINE LIAR

AND A CON! WE WERE SCAMMED OUT OF OUR LAST SAVINGS. THEN HE

WANTED MORE! I AM DISABLED AND OUR OLD CAR DIED. I EXPLAINED

TO HIM THAT I MUST USE A HOVEROUND (ELECTRIC WHEELCHAIR) TO

GET AROUND AND THAT A NEEDED A USED VAN (BECAUSE IT IS A HEAVY

VEHICLE, TO ATTACH THE WHEELCHAIR TO, EVEN SENT HIM A PICTURE).

OH, HE IS GOOD. NOW, OUR SAVINGS IS GONE, AND WE ARE BROKE! HE

TOLD US WE WOULD GET OUR $4,100 BACK WHEN WE RECEIVED THE

LOAN. PLEASE HELP US IF YOU CAN. I CALLED HIM ON THE PHONE NUMBER HE GAVE US AND BEGGED HIM FOR OUR MONEY BACK. I AM

A KIDNEY TRANSPLANT PATIENT AND MY MEDICINES ARE COSTLY, EVEN

AFTER THE INSURANCE PAYS. I HAVE DOCUMENTS AND E-MAILS.

Unfortunately, your option here is very limited and it is going to involve first, contacting the DA's office and filing a criminal complaint against him for theft by fraud. You should also contact the State Attorney General's Office Consumer Protection Unit and file a complaint. Your second act is to hire a local attorney and you will have to file suit against him in court or you can go without an attorney and file in small claims court because the money is within that limit.
