I was offered a loan of $12,000; had to prove that I had funds to make a payment!

Another foreigner called me yesterday; THIS IS A HEADS UP PEOPLE! He said that he had received my loan request and that they were able to give me a 12 month loan for $12,000.

I had to prove to them that I had enough in my account to make the loan payments though. I was told to go to the local check cashing place or to a local wire transfer store; anyplace that I could purchase a green dot card at. Once there I was told to purchase a green dot card for $186.00. Then I was to call their office back as soon as I had the green dot in my hands and give them the access code so they could view the card online; but they weren't going to cash the green dot card (total horsecrap)!

They just needed to know that I had funds available to be able to make a payment. Once they saw that, they would release the $12,000 into my checking account within an instant. I would have the funds by that afternoon.

Something told me that this was not kosher; of course, it wasn't. I hope that no one else got taken in by this fraud/scam but they were so smooth that I can almost bet people have been scammed and lost money over this.
