Loan Scam


Don't fall victim to this scam. Once again another example of crimnals getting smarter. Website looks good. You fill in your details and a person by the name of James Anton sends you a contract and telephone number. Have found out he has a bank account number for each bank under different names. In this case he offered a loan and once you fill out the contract he then starts requesting fees for legal and transfer fees. Assuring the unsuspecting person the money will be paid within the hour. Sad part is his number stays available and he has no trouble trying to convince you to sent more.

    Oh no I just applied for a loan with them yesterday, received confirmation via sms confirming my application was pre assessed and that I must check my emails for further information, nothing else

    I actually own and run the website MoneyShop.co.za. MoneyShop.co.za is a legitimate business and we source loans for our clients. Note, however, we DO NOT charge for this service This issue reported is DEFINITELY a SCAM. These people are using our brand and good reputation to try and suck people in. You will notice that no where in the email do they direct you to the MoneyShop.co.za website, but rather ask you to email some random email address. Simply do not do this, these people are trying to steal your money. If you want a loan, rather go to www.MoneyShop.co.za where we can guarantee a quality process

    Fraud from www.moneyshop.co.za. They offered me a loan and received messages stating that I need to pay bank transfer charges and clearance fees. I have been dealing withMr Paul and has been giving me different account numbers. How can I put a stop to this scam.
