Was this an unsolicited loan? That is, did you apply for it or did they just call you out of the blue? Nobody legitimate just hands out $4,000 without a comprehensive credit check. So if you didn't fill out a loan application but they are contacting you and saying they have money for you, it's a scam.

Never turn over money or sensitive personal identifying information to anyone under circumstances like this. Any unsolicited contact with news that is much too good to be true is ALWAYS a fraud. They are phishing for enough information from you to commit identity theft.

They do not need your bank account to process a loan.
