Allen Finance Investments,
Mr. Chukuma Doller
Have you received an email or postal letter from Mr. Chukuma Doller at Allen Finance Investments offering you a debt consolidation
loan, student loan, mortgage, small business loans or a great credit card rate?
The rate is incredibly low, they say they need very little documentation and can
get you money fast? It
is probably a scam. The offer and their websites (if they have one) may
even look real, except they will
quickly ask you for personal financial information, social security
number, bank account numbers, in addition to your name, address, phone numbers, etc.

Scholarship, Student Loan and Financial Aid scams!
Actual scam email (One example - the scammers constantly change
names, dates and addresses!):
Note the yahoo email address, no company website, poor spelling and grammar
and unprofessional business language ("just honestly and trust", "Yours Faithfully,")

How do loan scams work?
The scammer sends you an email or letter, or you respond to
an advertisement on tv, radio, newspaper, magazine or online. The ad often
uses the names of large, reputable and well-recognized lenders. To respond to
the advertisement, victims are directed to call a "third-party consultant" who
solicits application information including social security numbers. During this
telephone call, the "loan" is always approved.
The "third-party consultant" then faxes a loan package to the victim, or
directs the victim to a website to enter the information. The
package includes a request for bank account information.
Finally, victims must wire a required advance payment or a deposit through Western
Union or Money Gram to the consultant. The victim never obtains a
loan, and the scammer disappears with the application fees and down payments.
