Protect Yourself and Report the Latest Frauds, Scams, Spams, Fakes, Identify Theft Hacks and Hoaxes
Have you received an email or postal letter from "Mr John Smith" at Capital Investment Solution Company 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.
Notice the poor grammar, unprofessional phrasing, poor syntax, and the free gmail account; all clues that this is a scam.

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.
