I lost $900 to a Loan scam
Anonymous | 12 Jan 2023
On the 10 January, I am able to clear all the amount $700 and then I received a WhatsApp number claiming to be this Benson, so I just transferred the funds because I thought was him and screenshot the receipt to him. Then, he told me that I input the reference numer wrongly, and so I asked what to do next. Then, he said never mind. After I sent the screenshot to the real guy Benson he directly call me say he never received the payment.
So I asked this time how. He requested me to make a payment of $200 for deferment. So I just made the payment because I didn't want any trouble.
After consulting my friend about this, they shared that I fell prey to a loan scam, and so I suspended all my bank accounts and would file a police report.
