Additional Complaint Information

This company first came to the attention of the Cleveland BBB in January of 2008. At that time an Iowa consumer applied for a $5000 loan on the company website. The consumer was instructed to pay a total of $1800 in fees as collateral and for alleged insurance prior to receiving the loan. After sending those funds via Western Union to a Canadian address, the consumer was advised to wire an additional sum of $450 to cover alleged brokerage fees. As of January 28, 2008, the company has failed to provide the requested loan monies or to provide a refund.

As recently as January 22nd, the company website referenced a Cleveland-area address at 5788 Ridge Road, Suite 9. On January 25th, a Cleveland BBB staff member visited the two-story building at that address. Retail establishments are on the first level and a total of only 8 offices on the second level. There is NO Suite 9 and no company known as Ambassador Investment Group at that address.

As of January 28th, the company website is no longer active.

Neither the Ohio Secretary of State nor the Ohio Division of Financial Institutions has any filings for this company.

Due to the uncertainty of the company's whereabouts, the complaints noted in this report have been closed as unpursuable. This does not mean they are out of business, only that they cannot be located.
