There is no doubt about it, the art of scamming gets more complex every day. A case in point is FastLoan4Me. As best I can figure out, they are a payday loan company, but donâ€™t actually need to make loans to make money.
You can read my first article here. Calling their primary number 775-200-1525 is a futile exercise, all that happens is that you get a recording that hangs up on you. If you want to try it:
I went into investigative mode. All roads led to Nevada and a company called SILVER SHIELD SERVICES INC. I was hot on the trail! I even thought I had the name of the scammer. I was wrong, unless I just got scammed myself.
As I have no wish to get caught up in being accused of illegal recording of phone calls, I made it abundantly clear that I was a radio broadcaster, and we were live on air. You can listen the program.

As you can hear in the program, there is an effort by Silver Shield to help. I will be sending them the information I have, and hopefully we can find the person responsible for fraud.
