The owner of this company says they are in no way affiliated with "Direct Lending Solutions" soliciting loans for an advanced fee. Their name is being used in this operation out of Canada.
Better Business Bureaus in Canada report that American consumers are being targeted by several scams operating out of Canada.
Advance fee loan brokers are placing classified ads and using slick telemarketers to promise consumers guaranteed low-interest loans to pay off debts or "clean up" credit for a fee that is refundable.
Complaints against such firms indicate:
* addresses are generally mail drops,
* once money is sent, the consumers either receive nothing or are sent packages of otherwise free general information on how to clear credit and apply for loans, and
* when companies claim respondents were referred to another company, investigation reveals that those companies are engaged in the same type of business.
In fact, BBB experience with such offers indicates that loans are seldom, if ever, made and refunds are equally difficult to obtain. Consumers should proceed with extreme caution if a loan broker does not:
* disclose who the lender is or which lenders are being considered,
* whether the loan can be sold to a third party at a later date,
* answer any other questions you have to your satisfaction.
In Canada, it has been illegal since December 1994 for a company to charge an advance fee to find a lender or process a loan application before the customer has actually received the money. The Commonwealth of Kentucky limits the amount a lender may collect prior to issuing a loan or processing the loan application to $100. Ask for proof that the company has complied with the state regulations.
Lenders do not usually make any commitments to loans until a complete review is performed and appropriate applications are signed. Be wary of any claims that you have been approved for a loan if you have not gone through the accepted process.
If seeking a loan, try local lenders. If you are unable to obtain a loan locally, there is no reason to believe you'll obtain a loan by mail order.
