Allandale Lending Company ~ Big Time Thiefs

Allandale Lending offerered me a loan of $5000. I checked them out online and nothing negative was there about them. They had a website and spoke ENGLISH: not one person I spoke to had an accent! They were actually located in NY.. Agreed to loan, next day they asked for a deposit due to my credit score. That should have been the "eye-opener" for me....I have excellent credit! Anyway, each day they asked for more money and then. all of a sudden, needed Insurance coverage. The funds were wired to SIMON JOHNSTON in Ontario, Canada who was, supposedly, the lender. I finally had enough with this company and requested a refund..They asked for $625.00 to get the refund immediately. I laughed in their ear! They said I would receive the refund in 30 Days. Still waiting...Phone rings busy! I dealt with ROBERT BROWN, who was rude and nasty and hung up the phone on me repeatedly. I asked to speak with another lender and then dealt with RYAN CRAWFORD, who was nicer on the phone but was never in the office and wound up back with Robert... I hope these two know that Karma is real and they will get their comeuppance sometime in their lifetime! I hope someone scams them the way they did to all of us.

I also dealt with the "Ryan Crawford". I was told the same exact thing as you.

I was in a tight spot between pay checks and Allandale lending checked out online. I was also transferred to the account manager "Antonio". He was very rude, stated I needed a $484 deposit because my credit was not that great. News alert my credit is fair 620.

After sending the money to "Ashley Lee" in Ontario, Canada they stated I needed to pay another $484. Once I told them I did not want the loan and needed a refund, "Antonio" stated it would be 30 business days, not including the weekend. That was 3 months ago. I have put the word out online because other people need to know even if the lender checks out, it could still be a scam.

I feel like the dumbest person in the world, I even worked in loss prevention so I knew the signs of theft. NO ONE GIVE ANY MONEY TO THESE THIEVES!!!!!!!!

Same EXACT thing happened to me! Same names also!

I got the Attorney General, the local police and the FTC involved, but since no one could get a hold of them (shocking since the phone continued to ring busy!) they did absolutely nothing!!!

I have signed contracts and everything which you'd at least think would constitute some sort of internet fraud, but absolutely nothing! Out $3000 but won't ever see it again!

These people approved me for a $5000 installment loan. They requested a $500 "security deposit" which I wired. When I didn't get the payment as they said I would, I called back. Spoke with Ryan Crawford, Anthony and Robert. Was told to send another $500, which stupidly, I did once again. When I still didn't receive my money, I again called and was told I needed to purchase a $1500 insurance policy. I immediately requested a refund which I was "guaranteed" to receive with 14 days. It has now been one month and I have received nothing. Their phone now goes directly to a busy signal!!! They are cons and NOT use them and if you owe them money for a loan you may have actually gotten, DO NOT SEND THEM ANYTHING!!!!! Worst, worst people EVER!

I too was approved for 5000,,paid 484. +40 fee,,,,didnt receive anything,,asked for refund,,,they disappeared...


Same thing also happened to me. I was "approved" for a 5000.00 loan.

After I sent a collateral payment they kept asking for more money. I asked for a refund and they said it would be 30 days, but now their number is just a busy signal.


I also am in the same boat. They said I was approved for a 5000.00 loan.

I sent 500.00 but when I refused to send more they said I was getting a refund in thirty days and now I can't get ahold of them. :(
