20th of Dec, 2011 by User265785
I was scammed by SafeHouse Financial for $1852.00. Details are attached or shown below. I mean to warn readers of the shady practices these crooks perpetrate on trusting individuals. My plight is broadcast to complaint web sites, Attorneys General of the affected states or provinces, the FTC, the BBB and Chambers of Commerce of affected cities and states, local law enforcement in hopes of apprehending the perpetrators. My research is also attached or shown below. All I would like is the return of the $1852.00 and prosecution of the perpetrators to hopefully end their practices.

Thomas Mayer Details of my personal experience with SafeHouse Financial I filled out a loan application on the web along with an explanation why the loan was needed and a promissory note. SafeHouse must have received this application as a Ms. Lisa Fox contacted me on 11/18/11 via e-mail telling me that the loan was approved and that once the preliminaries were out of the way, the $60K would be deposited into my back account within 2 – 6 hours. On 11/23/11, I called Ms. Fox and she said that 2 months of loan payments ($850) would have to be sent to a Mr. Carl Williams, Ajax Ontario Canada via Western Union. SafeHouse would reimburse the WU charges to me. A few hours later I received a telephone call from Mr. Jason Green also of SafeHouse asking that another 2 months of loan repayment fees be sent again to Mr. Carl Williams, because the lender would like the added security. He further stated that the $60K would be in my account within 6 hours and that he had my routing and account number from Ms. Fox. Over the Thanksgiving holidays I did not expect anything to happen and gave SafeHouse until noon on Friday 11/25/11 to make good on their promise. Since nothing happened I started calling them. I got Ms. Fox who was surprised that I had not yet received the funds but she would check with Mr. Green as he was now handling my account. Mr. Green was to call back but did not. On Monday, 11/28/11 no funds came. Any phone calls I made were ignored by SafeHouse. By now I started to feel uneasy and on Monday PM I sent an e-mail to SafeHouse, Ms. Fox, Mr. Green, etc. asking them to cancel my request (using the 3 business day cancellation) and refund by $1,700 and $152 in WU fees immediately. On Tuesday 11/29/11 I finally was able to reach Mr. Green via phone and he advised me that it is the SafeHouse policy (I never received a copy of this) that it would take 35 – 45 days for them to make any reimbursements. I told Mr. Green that this was unacceptable as they had my money and so they should be able to make an immediate reimbursement. Not only would they not reimburse for 30 – 45 days but they would contact us in 15 days to get the info where to send the reimbursement to. I told him that he had my info on file and to just send my money. As the trust between SafeHouse and me has been broken, I feel that they are stringing me along and will most likely never reimburse me at all. I held up my end of the deal – they DID NOT. Should SafeHouse indeed refund my money, I will advise anyone who received my complaint immediately. All I would like is the return of the $1852.00 and prosecution of the perpetrators to hopefully end their practices.
