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.

BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating is not a guarantee of a business' reliability or performance, and BBB recommends that consumers consider a business' BBB Rating and Customer Review Rating in addition to all other available information about the business. If the BBB Rating is NR then only Customer Reviews are used for the Star Rating.
