Skyline Lending Solutions Scam Calls

Also known as ‘Lending Solutions’, Skyline Lending Solutions call people with different area code numbers, informing them about a loan application. The call takes the following format;

”Hello! This is an urgent update from Skyline Lending Solutions regarding your economic impact loan application. Our contact number is 888-531-6256. We need to address an important issue with your application to move forward. Please return our call at 888-531-6256”.

Skyline Lending Solutions Scam: How It Works

The Skyline Lending Solutions scam falls into the category of ‘Loan Approval Scam’. It is an advanced fee fraud that aims to steal money from people interested in getting loans.

When we called the number ‘888-531-6256’, someone on the other end tried to convince us that we can get up to $70,000 approved loan at little interest rate. He said the economic Impact Loan is for small businesses and people struggling due to the economy. When we played along, the fraudster requested for a processing fee to help quicken the process.

We immediately called it bluff as he failed to tell us how our telephone number was gotten and when did we apply for a loan.

In reality, the loan is non-existent. Anyone who pays the processing fee would be made to pay more and more money but wouldn’t get the loan as promised. This is a classic example of Advance Fee Scam.
