Scam Description

I was contacted by melissa regarding a loan i applied for. We had both phone and email conversations. After signing my contract and paying the collateral payment I was told the lenders wanted to double the amount required from 3months to 6 months. When I didnt agree I was allowed to request a refund but was told I would have to wait for the end of billing cycle for it to be issued. After 30 days of no response and not refund I again reached out to both melissa and her boss via email with no response and when I tried to contact them via phone i was answered by a recording stating the number was disconnected from service.
