Additional Complaint Information

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.

BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating is not a guarantee of a business' reliability or performance, and BBB recommends that consumers consider a business' BBB Rating and Customer Review Rating in addition to all other available information about the business. If the BBB Rating is NR then only Customer Reviews are used for the Star Rating.
