Advance Fee Brokers
According to information obtained by BBB from various sources, this company purportedly offers personal loans that require consumers to pay substantial up-front fees via wire transfers. Reportedly, after the consumers pay the fees the promised loans are not received.
BBB reverse-searched the company's supposed local address of 2550 Legion Avenue, New Haven, CT on www.whitepages.com and found there was no such address. A further check with the New Haven, Connecticut Tax Assessor's office verified that 2550 Legion Avenue, New Haven is not a valid address.
According to the company's web site domain registration, Dream Financial is located at 51 Osler St., Toronto, Ontario M6P 4 Canada. Although the domain registration lists the company name as Dream Financial Inc., the Connecticut Secretary of State's office has no listing for the company.
BBB has also confirmed with the Connecticut Banking Department that Dream Financial is not licensed as a loan broker, as required by Connecticut law.
Further, BBB attempted to learn the point of origin of the firm's telephone number, (855) 801-6663, but found that the toll-free area code is not traceable to a specific locale.
