BBB Accreditation

To be accredited by BBB, a business must apply for accreditation and BBB must determine that the business meets BBB accreditation standards, which include a commitment to make a good faith effort to resolve any consumer complaints. BBB Accredited Businesses must pay a fee for accreditation review/monitoring and for support of BBB services to the public.

Additional Information

This address is a well known mail drop. The company is not physically located at this address.
A Bureau representative went to the address shown to investigate the business and was unable to locate them. The Bureau attempted to reach the company by telephone and a recorded message stated that the "line is being checked for trouble".

BBB experience indicates that the following are signs of advance fee loan fraud:

Pressure to act immediately. Advance fee loan schemers will try to get you to send money or give out personal information (credit card numbers, bank account numbers, Social Security numbers) before you get any paperwork. Insist on receiving the necessary paperwork before deciding whether to apply for a loan.
Will not provide location information. If the loan broker hesitates to tell you their physical location, beware; that is a common ploy to avoid law enforcement detection. Refuse to do business with the broker until you have their physical address or location and can check them out with the BBB.
Questionable connections to established financial institutions. Many of these schemes are merely telephone sales operations, so no connection will exist to an established financial institution. Ask which lenders the "loan broker" deals with, and ask for the physical address of the lender. Then contact the Better Business Bureau to request information on the lender.
