Star One Lending Complaint

Loan Scam - Loan

- Rhode Island

I was looking to secure a loan to consolidate some bills, but my credit was less than perfect. I did some research on line for loan companies that can assist individuals with less than perfect credit. I came across a company named Star One Lenders. I contacted them and was approved for a $5000 loan. I was told to send in a deposit on the loan of $960 for the first 6 months of payments and them my $5000 check would be sent to me via fed-ex. I sent my deposit and haven't heard back from them since. Since then, I have seen a lot of complaints and other people having the same problem. I wish these were on line prior to me sending all the money I had in the world!!

I have filed complaints with the FBI and local police department in RI. I am hoping they are able to do something about getting my deposit back, but I seriously doubt it. I am now worse off than I was before I started this whole ordeal. Now when you call Star One all you get is a message saying your account is temp. on hold and to please contact customer service. That is impossible because the only number they give you continues to play this annoying message..I hope this nightmare ends on a happy note, but like I said..I seriously doubt it!!!

For those of you who got ripped off by Star One, they are back at it again and going by Oakdale Lending Group now. I was taken for $1713.60 by this company and I am fighting hard to make this known all around the world. If anyone has any further information regarding Oakdale Lending, please post. The more info I can find, the better off we will all be. This company is out of Charlottesville, VA.
