I applied for a loan online, and Joel Coen 1-888-990-9437 x 319 from Pine Valley Financial said I can get a $5,000 loan with 3 Installment payments paid rounded up to $475 to Michael Bennet in NY with Western Union wire transfer fee $40 that will be refunded with the $5,000 next Business day. That was Thursday October 17th. I was suppose to receive the Funds next Business Day. Since then I have written many emails, and have called every day. The last phone call to him I just got Hung Up on. I have asked for my Wire Transfer $ back, and I VOIDED my Contract by his date of the 25th. So far NO LUCK on getting my money back!! Looks like Joel Coen has got one over me, and many other women in need of help in desperate times most likely to have to take care of their children's needs. Time to get BBB Involved, the Authorities, and a Lawyer. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!

  • Gary Howell continues to tell me they are trying to get my money back from the "private lender" if not the insurance will cover my loss and a refund will be issued November 18. I am working very closely with my local police department, they have a financial unit, I hope something comes of it. Good luck, please update me if you make any progress.

  • I sent 2 different types of Complaints to BBB, and am waiting to hear back on that. Joel doesn't pick up the phone, nor has called/emailed me for a refund. I will let you know.
