Vanilla Reload Network
CONSUMER LOAN SCAMS USING VANILLA RELOAD PACKS
I was contacted after applying for several loans and told that I was approved for $5000. I then was told that to show good faith for the first month's payment of $200 I would need to get a Vanilla reload pack and load $200 on it. I gave them the reload information and they said I would have the $5000 in my bank account within 2 hours. I waited, and waited and after staying on the phone for several hours with these people. They said my house location was in a "black list" area and they could not deposit the money on the card. They THEN proceeded to say they were sending me the loan via Western Union. FINALLY when I wouldn't give them any additional fees, they will now not answer the phone. All I wanted was my $200 back which I am sure now I will never see. So unfortunate for people in a financial situation. However I WILL DEFINITELY be contacting the FBI and FCC about it. Vanilla Reload Network should be on top of this because if they are not in on the scam, it sure looks like it!
