Hardship Program Call Scam: Preapproved Loan

I keep getting calls about being preapproved for a hardship program. Here is a transcript of the robocall: "Hey this is Kyla from processing, I was just calling to let you know that we do have your preapproved amount back for the hardship program um we did get up to $55,000 so if you could just give me a callback and we can go over the details, my number is 877270444 and you can speak to me or anyone of the representatives um just in case again that number is 877270444." Has anyone received similar calls?

    As I said in my reply I'm at a really bad place right now and I need help bad but c**p like this really doesn't help. I'm looking for a hand up not a hand out and when I get stuff like this you get excited then you get slammed as if your not already as low as you can be. Things like this is beyond cruel . And totally sets you back.

    Pre-approved for hardship program $40k. I never applied or inquired or researched for anything like this. It’s definitely a scam. She called from 1 (701) 960-1910 but said to call back 877-476-8557.

    I got this: "hey it's jenna from processing I was just calling to let you know that we do have your preapproved amount back for the hardship program um we were able to get you up to $40,000"

  • August 1, 2020 at 8:54 AM by an anonymous user from: Aurora, Illinois, United States
