Question DetailsAsked on 10/25/2013

Has anyone used Fleet Finance Co. based out of St. Louis for a personal loan? Are they legit?

I am trying to consolidate my debt and my credit is iffy. I have tried the banks and credit unions, but without collateral or a consigner they are not able to help. Fleet Finance Co has an A rating with BBB, but what is catching me off guard is that I have to purchase credit insurance first before the loan will be disbursed. They want the funds using the Green Dot card. I am finding conflicting information about the Green Dot card. I know wiring using Western Union or Money Gram services are scams. But I am really hoping to learn about others experience if they have used Fleet Finance Co for a personal loan.

I have been wondering the same thing, I am scared to send them money this way because it could be a scam. I have been unable to find anything online about them or if they are a scam. However on the other side I would hate to pass up an opportunity that is pretty good, but I can not just throw $1000.00 away. Have you had any success with finding answers?

I looked in BBB but I saw a F rating. It says they are not accredited with the BBB. There are alot of companies out there by this name, so I was specific in searching for the one in MO. The phone # listed on the BBB states its disco'd. I called it and in fact it is. I also looked up the guys name who is listed as a mgr, Mr. Duvall and found his linked in page. He doesnt currently work there but is listed as having worked there. I too am very sketchy, and have to get "insurance", i dont want a co-signer, or any other option. I am in desperate need of this money but I also cannot just throw away money. Any suggestions would help.

I'm having the same experience....This is what I found out on the Green Dot - MoneyPak site and when I presented this to the loan advisor, I never heard back from her. I can only concluded that it is a SCAM from Fleet Finance Co.


We Care About Your Money:

Treat your MoneyPak number the way you treat your cash and your wallet. The best way to protect yourself from being ripped off is to be aware of common scams.

7 Tips on How to Protect Yourself from Fraud:

Never give your MoneyPak number to someone you don’t know.

Never give receipt information about your MoneyPak purchase to another party.

Use your MoneyPak only to reload your prepaid cards or accounts you control.

Refuse any offer that asks you to buy a MoneyPak and share the number or receipt information by email or phone.

To use your MoneyPak with PayPal or eBay or other online merchants, transfer the money to your PayPal account before you pay the merchant. Don’t email your MoneyPak number directly to any merchant.

Don’t use the MoneyPak to pay taxes or fees to claim “winnings” on a foreign lottery or prize promotion. Unless it’s an approved MoneyPak partner, don’t use MoneyPak for any offer that requires you to pay before you get the item.

Check this list of approved MoneyPak partners before you use your MoneyPak to pay.

Please keep these 7 tips in mind when using MoneyPak. Green Dot is not responsible for the quality or non-receipt of any goods or services you buy using your MoneyPak.

You’re told that you are pre-approved to apply for a personal loan. But the lender says that to get the full amount you applied for, you need to make the first two payments to show good faith. You buy a MoneyPak to cover the amount, and give the lender your MoneyPak number. The loan never comes through, and the lender cannot be traced. You’ve been scammed.

This company IS a scam. I sincerely hope none of you gave your information. Please do NOT trust anyone from this company. I, unfortunately, did trust, thinking it was fine since the research I had done came up with nothing, but they are a rip-off. I've reported them to the attorney general's office in my state and in Missouri, as well as with the FTC and FBI.


Please know, and pass on to everyone you know, paying anything for a loan to receive the money is ILLEGAL in the United States. They can take the fees from the loan proceeds, but CANNOT charge you anything in advance.
