Advance Fee Brokers Mortgage and Nonmortgage Loan Brokers (NAICS: 522310)

Industry Tips

Advance fee loan brokers usually advertise their services in the newspaper's "Money to Loan" columns, or broadcast over the TV or radio. These ads usually target those individuals with poor or no credit records who are seeking to borrow money. A fee that can range anywhere from $25 to $3,000 is paid in advance to the broker to find a loan. Please realize that the broker is not a lender. Loan brokers cannot make real estate loans and do not lend money directly to borrowers. The broker acts as a go-between for the client and the lender. Under some advance fee contracts, the original fee charged may not be refunded if the lender denies your loan.

Other contracts do allow refunds if the lender denies your loan and you obtain the same or larger amount from another lender. If the company offers a money-back guarantee, make sure you know what the guarantee covers, what the specific requirements are, and how long it is in effect. Secure this information in writing several days in advance to signing or agreeing to paying fees. The BBB strongly advises would-be borrowers to exercise caution before paying advance fees to any unknown firms or brokers who say they can find loans.
