moneyshop scam

I received a pamphlet from a friend as I am looking for a loan. I send my details as requested by the pamphlet and got a response to complete application form and supporting documents from a Cynthia Louw. I completed and following day received an approval letter signed by Paul Anton and Smith Jones from 74 Main street Rossetten ville. Attached was a contract for me to sign and that my loan will be paid immediately when attorneys fees a paid. Firstly the interest rate was at 3% and first installment to be made in 2015. I phoned this Cynthia, her voice you could here that it was of a male posing as a women and his/her accent is of foreign origin but defiantly not SA. I asked few questions as ask why 3% interest rate, (he/she) said because it was a special offer. but already I was convinced that this was a scam that I nearly fall for but reading the contract fine print I saw flaws on it and also picking up the phone calling both Cynthia and Paul their voice  were the same but I used landline and a cellphone. I decided not to complete the contract but check online of credentials which I found none but only that Money shop is based in New Zealand and UGHANDA those are legit and further discover that this is a scam

    Hi Mike, can you give me your contact details please. I would like to chat to you.

    Hi Mike I would like to ask. Your website does not give any contact details. Address, tel nmbr etc. it might help if you put that on then a person will be able to verify the info they received from the application form to you website. Kind regards Jana

    I actually own and run the website 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 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 where we can guarantee a quality process.
