January 9, 2019

Is loan offer a scam?

December 14, 2018

Dear Consumer Ed:  This supposed lending club is offering to loan me $5,000, but they say that since my credit isn’t great, they need to verify my intention to pay by a means I find suspicious. They say they will pay off my credit card balance of $850.00, then I am supposed to go to a nearby store and make a purchase in the same amount. After I do that they say they will lend me the loan money by depositing the $5,000 into my checking account. This makes no sense to me, but if it is a scam, how would they benefit?  I have already given them my credit card information. What do you advise?
