Scam Description

I was contacted by Nicole Taylor from Venture Funding Group stating that she and her company had a business line of credit available for me in the amount of 250,000 dollars. She stated that in order to obtain this I would have to obtain and pay off a tradeline agreement. She referred me to Coast to Coast funding owned by John Bencivenga. The agreement was that I would receive 10,000 dollars and pay back 15,000 dollars. After this was paid in full I would receive access to the line of credit. I only received 500 dollars and Coast to Coast took 8500 dollars from my account. It took me weeks to receive the zero balance letter. Once I received it I sent it to Nicole Taylor and immediately did not receive any responses to emails, calls, and text messages. I still have not heard a word and have not received any of the money that was stolen from my bank account.
