They told me to go to Walmart and get iTunes gift cards to get the loan to go through for insurance on the money & I did and he told me the card wasn't any good after I gave him the pin#s, plus the manager at the store said that they were scamming me with the cards but he wouldn't refund my money!¡!!!!!!

Yes - I'm sorry. This is an extremely common scam.

It's really important for you to remember for future reference that Walmart and iTunes gift cards - or any kind of gift cards for that matter - have nothing to do with a loan going through. I'm afraid I don't have an answer for you - this is how people get scammed out of their money unfortunately.

How do I correct that please????

I'm sorry - there's no way to "correct" that. You can contact the FBI and report the scam but that does not get you your money back.

Ok thanks mis olivia

I'm my pleasure. I'm sorry I couldn't give you good news. I would also contact the State Attorney General's Office in your state - in addition to the FBI.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
