Additional Complaint Information

In September of 2006 consumers informed the BBB that this internet-based company was offering loans in exchange for an advance payment. Required as either a brokers fee or for insurance, the fees ranged from $1000 to $1880 for loans ranging from $5,000 to $15,000. After paying the fees, callers indicated the company never provided the loan monies. In at least one instance a consumer sent the money via Western Union to an Ontario, Canada address.

Based on research by the Cleveland BBB, the Cleveland, Ohio address referenced on the company website - www.crownmericafinancial.com - does not appear to be a valid address.

Consumers who have provided confidential information and are concerned of any impact on their credit report may wish to contact the three credit BBBs - www.equifax.com; www.experian.com; www.transunion.com - to discuss this matter and request a "fraud alert" be placed on their file. This will let potential creditors and others know they may be a victim of identity theft. Likewise, consumers may also wish to contact their financial institution(s) and any credit card companies.

Consumers may also file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Additional information may be obtained online at www.ftc.gov.

Finally, Consumers have the option of filing a complaint with their local BBB or online at www.bbb.org.
