BBB serving East AL, West & Southwest GA with Regional Headquarters in Columbus, GA
We offer free reviews on businesses that include background, licensing, consumer experience and other information such as governmental actions that is known to BBB. These reviews are provided for businesses that are BBB accredited and also for businesses that are not BBB accredited.
Some Better Business Bureaus offer additional content & services in BBB Business Reviews.
The additional content & services are typically regional in nature or, in some cases, a new product or service that is being tested prior to a more general release.
Not all enhanced content & services are available at all Better Business Bureaus.
BBB handles the following types of complaints between businesses and their customers so long as they are not, or have not been, litigated:
We do not handle workplace disputes, discrimination claims or claims about the quality of health or legal services.
Your complaint will be forwarded to the business within two business days. The business will be asked to respond within 14 days, and if a response is not received, a second request will be made. You will be notified of the business's response when we receive it (or notified that we received no response). Complaints are usually closed within 30 business days.
BBB promotes truth in advertising by contacting advertisers whose claims conflict with the BBB Code of Advertising. These claims come to our attention from our internal review of advertising, consumer complaints and competitor challenges. BBB asks advertisers to prove their claims, change ads to make offers more clear to consumers, and remove misleading or deceptive statements.
BBB reports on known significant government actions involving business' marketplace conduct.
As a matter of policy, BBB does not endorse any product, service or business.

BBB has been made aware that this company has become a victim of "name-jacking." Victims of the scam told us that they search online for a loan (the websites they visit are often phishing websites that are set up just for this purpose). Once they apply for the loan online, they get a phone call from a man stating that he is an employee of American Finance and that applicant has been approved for a loan. He then proceeds to tell the victim that in order to receive the loan he/she must place an x-amount of dollars on a pre-paid card and give him the PIN of that card. Needless to say that the moment the victim gives him the PIN, the funds are gone and no loan is fort coming. We firmly suggest to all loan seekers to visit a trusted financial institution in person when applying for a loan or to go directly to a known financial institution's website to do so. Also keep in mind that a reputable company will never ask you to pre-pay any fees, particularly not via a pre-paid card.
