Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan
Approved for personal loan, but "to prove I have a valid checking acct", they would send $800 to my checking acct, which I would have to withdraw and remit back to them by moneygram. They said ScamPulse.com set these rules.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
I had received calls from this company for about a week before i answered. When I did it sounded like a dream, my family had just been hit hard by a serious medical emergency meaning we wouldn’t be working for a week, so what this gentleman was describing sounded like a sign from god. However, without me telling him he had my account and routing number as well as my personal info. He began saying things like "I need to verify your account and identity so we will send you money to money gram to another party who we will tell you about later through a text" and my red flag went up. No transaction was made, no documents were signed or E-signed. Now 2 days later this man has been calling me off the hook saying I owe him money. All the calls have been from lots of random number ranging from my area code, to jamaica, and states all across the US. I have voicemails from him pretending to be the IRS, my bank, and various other official businesses. He has threatened to come to my home, take thousands of dollars from my account to overdraw it, and,being a little tech savvy, from what I can tell has hacked my cell phone. When I was attempting to contact my bank the call was intercepted and turned into an incoming call from my bank. I answered and was bombarded with the same man yelling at me using vulgar language and threatening me.
