Salina Woman Falls For Loan Scam

KSAL StaffMay 5, 2016

A Salina woman trying to get a consolidation loan falls for a scam.

Police Captain Mike Sweeney says that a woman in her 40s was researching loan consolidation online. The woman found a website titled cashnetpayday.com and filled out an application. A short time later she was contacted via a phone call. A man with a foreign accent calling himself “Jack Brown” informed her that she was qualified for a $12,000 loan.

In order to received the loan, she first needed to provide several fees. The fees needed to be paid using iTunes cards. She purchased $350 in cards at Walgreens, $700 at CVS Pharmacy, and provided the access codes to “Jack”.

After not receiving her loan, the woman contacted “Jack” again. She was told that another $1,200 in iTunes cards were needed. She did not provide the additional money and instead called police.

Sweeney says that this was a scam.

Total loss  to the woman is $1,050.
