Additional Complaint Information

According to information in BBB files, this company supposedly offers personal loans and requests consumers pay upfront fees via wire transfers or other methods. Reportedly, after the consumers pay the requested fees the promised loans are not received.

The BBB has received several calls into our office since November 27, 2012 in regards to the company's online loan application. Its been found that the company is requesting individuals to send funds of around $750.00 -  upfront for an insurance policy that secures the loan in case of disability.

Consumers should know that the US prohibits upfront fees to be collected for these types of loans.  Further BBB investigation revealed that the company address listed is not a valid address used by this company. The company seems to also request a copy of a voided check and 2 forms of photo ID, along with the $750 insurance fee. The BBB also found other companies associated with Greenpoint Financial Resource; Lending Corp Finance, Financial Alliance Corporations and www.bringyourpet.com. All the websites seem to be generic in general and have the same format.

The BBB suggests consumers use extreme caution in giving personal information and in sending funds to this type of offer. Once the funds are transferred for the loan offer, no loan ever becomes available.  BBB warns that most often, addresses used by advance fee loan brokers are non-deliverable by the US Post Office, or belong to legitimate business which have no knowledge of or connection with the supposed loan brokers. BBB attempts to process any complaints to the addresses in question generally result in the mail being returned to our office.
