Additional Complaint Information
This company first came to the attention of Cleveland BBB on May 31, 2012. At that time a consumer reported the company required advance monies prior to granting the consumer a loan. In such cases consumers are typically advised to wire-transfer the fees to unknown parties in Canada and, after doing so, never receive the promised loan monies.
According to the company website, http://www.firstfedassociated.com, they are located at 4832 Richmond Road, Warrensville Heights, Ohio, 44128 – a suburb of Cleveland. The website also includes the statement “Building customer loyalty since 1999”. However, neither the Ohio Secretary of State nor the Ohio Department of Commerce has any record of the company. In addition, the website was created on May 25, 2012.
Given the nature of the industry and uncertainty of its true location, the BBB advises extreme caution before providing monies or confidential information to this company.
Consumers who have provided confidential information and are concerned of any impact on their credit report may wish to contact the three credit bureaus - 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) – www.ftc.gov – and the Ohio Attorney General - www.ohioattorneygeneral.gov.
Finally, Consumers have the option of filing a complaint online with the BBB at www.cleveland.bbb.org.
This report will be updated when more information is available.
