Here is the complete text of the review which has now been deleted from the source –
I got approved for a loan from this place, but they ask me for my social security number. I thought it was a little strange, considering I had already given them enough information from the start. Once I gave them my social security number, I never heard from them again. In fact my social security number was used to apply for credit cards. Luckily I have protection, but let this be a warning, Advance America is a scam!
