This business has no rating because it is out of business.
The BBB has received many complaints from customers who state they have wired money to a location outside of Minnesota for disability insurance, prior to receiving their loan. After wiring the money to an individual, the complainant did not receive the loan. Complainants state that they have left numerous messages for the company with no return call regarding the money they were promised. The location the company lists on their Web site is vacant and looks nothing like the picture posted. Mail has been returned by the US Postal Service stamped "attempted not known."
All BBB complaints have been forwarded to the Frederick County Sheriff's department in Virgina. The Web sites of the company have been shut down and it was determined that the money orders were all picked up in Canada.
