|I was called by Tom Blake of Serra Financing Company that I was approved $7,000 loan. Mr Blake I needed to pay and insurance payment of $750 and fee of $66 to Andre Mitchell of Vancover Canada. Mr Blake had a BBB Acreditation and rating of A+. I could not find any bad reports on company so I sent the money. Mr Blake told me to call him with MTCN number and he would have loan money and insurance money back in my bank account in 15 minutes. After Checking with bank there had not been any money deposited in my account. I called Mr Blake who said he would have money inputted now. I received a call from the Broker who said that he could not pay me any money until I paid his broker fee. My bank told me that a broker fee should be 0 to $70 Not Hundreds or even a Thousand. I told the broker that Mr Blake never mentioned a broker fee. I ask if Mr Blake could pay this fee include in payments or take out of loan money given. I already had been scam 2 others times. I had given Mr.Blake insurance man my new bill money so I did not have any more money to spare. The broker told me he would talk to Mr Blake and call me back in 15 minutes. After 20 minutes I called Mr Blake back and his 877 and his 205 numbers were both disconnected. I have sent e-mails but have got no response. I asked for my deposited money back since both phone lines were disconnected. I had told broker that I had reported last 2 scams to BBB.Police,FBI and Tv news station. |
Mr Blake had made me feel bad because I did not want to send money since I been scamed twice. He said that the BBB Acrediation proves he is no scammer. I think he is a scammer because he disconnected phone lines and would not respond to e-mails. I did report him and his company to BBB.Police,FBI and News Team.
I got e-mail from BBB saying they had to delete complaint for you do not report loan scams to them. I feel that they need to be aware since we trust these scammers because of their rating. Where are we suspose to do our research if not on their information.
|hey i have a tom clark that also called me from the exact same place for a 10 000 dollard loan yesterday... they sent me a contract to sign and are requirering some documents before i need to send them the 750 dollard... i was actually going to send them the money before i saw your ad... you can call them at 1 877 745 1840 i guess they changed there number and they will probably do so again... can you give me more info on your situation thanks|
|hello me and my wife as well was contascted by a tom clarke/ tom blake. We were told we were approved for a $30, 000 loan and that we needed to send 1273.00 to a Peter Noel in Vancouver, DC. I called the BBB in Alabama and they stood by there accrediation rating until I told them the number reported on their site was disconnected and they were routing people through individuals in Canada the lady seemed interested. So they are now looking into the company because the Serra Financing Company they represent has been an upstanding loan company for 18+ years. They also directed me to the Alabama Attorney's General Office who hadn't had a report about them however could not find anything about the company. I am so confused about what is going on if either of you have more information please share!!! My family is in real need of this loan and if its legit then great if not then I need to keep pressing forward.|
|I almost got scammed too thank heavens for google and i found this website thank you you have saved me a great deal of heartache|
|I too was inquiring with regards to a loan, however once I received the contract from a Mr Tom Blake, I read over the contract in fine detail. I was approved for $5000.00 even though I didn't need that much. The loan contract states that I would repay $5558.04 over a 3year peroid with a montly payment of $154.39 per month, however I had to pay a collateral of $750.00 in case of death or loss of job etc. I realized that the munbers didn't make sence, and I decided to do some digging. This is definitely FRAUD, someone looking to make a quick dollare, however not on my expence. PLEASE BE CAREFUL. The phone number for Serra Financing Company has been disabled. Please note as well I am a Canadian Resident/Citizen, and it is very UNLIKELY that a US company will present a loan to a CANADIAN Resident/Citizen. Please BEWARE!!!|
|I have been scammed by Tom Clark, Tom Blake and Serra Financing. |
