This business claims to offer consumer loans if consumers pay various upfront fees before the funds are to be released. A consumer has complained to BBB that the business requested she wire money to pay for insurance to secure her loan. However, after paying the insurance, the business did not fund the loan as agreed. When the customer questioned the business about this, they told her that additional upfront funds were required. BBB has attempted to contact the business regarding the complaint, however mail has been returned due to "insufficient address" and the business has not responded to telephone messages.
The company is not registered as a lending institution with the Ohio Department of Commerce or registered as a legal business entity with the Ohio Secretary of State.

BBB's experience with loan offers of this nature is that the consumer does not receive the promised loan after paying the required security deposit, administrative fees or insurance fees. No legitimate company will ask for funds in advance of a loan, nor will it ask for any fee to be wired to them directly by Western Union, Moneygram, or any other wire service. Fees incurred in a legitimate loan generally are deducted from the loan amount before the funds are dispersed.
BBB has attempted to contact the business, however mail has been returned due to "insufficient address" and the business has not responded to telephone messages. The company is not registered as a lending institution with the Ohio Department of Commerce or registered as a legal business entity with the Ohio Secretary of State.
