Advance Fee Fraud: Royale Financing Company

A correspondent tells me that he has applied for a loan through "Royale Financing Company" at This is an advance fee fraud scam: they want you to send them fees up-front via Western Union before they will send you the loan. Sadly, the loan and the whole company are both a big lie: this is just a bunch of fraudsters conning people into sending them money. They will gladly take your money and keep it -- you'll never see a cent back.

Bear in mind that the name "Royale Financing Company" is made up. Scammers make up new names regularly because people like me report the old ones as scams. Don't judge the operation by its name: judge it by what they do. If they want you to send them money to apply for a loan, just assume they're scammers and steer clear of them.
