BBB Accredited Businesses must pay a fee for accreditation review/monitoring and for support of BBB services to the public.

Advance Fee Loan

Products & Services

The Bureau would like consumers to be aware that per the Federal Trade Commission, it is illegal for a business to request up front fees in order to secure a loan. These fees may come in the guise of security, insurance, or other descriptions.

Additionally, consumers should be aware that the Chicago BBB has come across many incidents of interaction with so called Advance Fee Lenders. In each and every case where a consumer sent their requested fees, the Bureau knows of not a single example where the consumer received either 1) their loan funds, or 2) a refund of their advance fee.

If you are a consumer that has been victimized by Direct Financial Services, please contact the Internet Crime Complaint Center -IC3- at www.ic3.gov as well as Phonebusters at www.phonebusters.com
