Additional Information

On April 1, 2011, the BBB started to get calls from consumers that the company insists they have payday loan debts they need to pay. Consumers allege that they have lost money to this company.

As of January 22, 2013 the company is not registered with the Department of State to do business in Pennsylvania.

Mail can not be sent to this Business because the BBB is unable to determine a good address for company.

Although anyone can be a target, these scams target individuals who may currently have an outstanding debt, may have had a past debt, or may have inquired about a loan.

These so-called collection agencies do not abide by current state laws in their collection practices.  The collection agents are difficult to speak to, usually will not send debt in writing to the consumer and in many cases, fraudulently pocket the debts if they are able to collect them, leaving the outstanding debt unpaid.  Therefore, the consumer loses money.
