Scam Description

I tried to get a personal loan from this place. They told me that in order to distribute the funds, they needed to boost my credit score. To do that, they had to deposit an amount into my checking account that I needed to send back to them. When I did that I had to another one. I was then informed by my bank that the deposits were fraudulent and the bank pulled them from my account. So I ended up losing the deposits plus being charged for the checks that I had written to cover sending the money back.
