A woman went to the Arvada Police Department on April 3 to report a loan scam. She told police she was interested in purchasing a loan and had researched and placed information into several lending sites when she started to receive numerous calls.
After speaking with one of the lenders, she was told she would need to pay the taxes on the loan upfront, and proceeded to purchase two American Express Vanilla prepaid cards for a total of $445. Following the initial purchase, the individual was instructed to give the card information to the lender, and purchase another prepaid card for $207. At this time, the individual realized she was scammed and cancelled the prepaid cards.
