BBB urges consumers to read the following article published by BBB in cooperation with the Federal Trade Commision:
http://www.bbb.org/us/article/ftc--the-truth-about-advance-fee-loan-scams-4689. 

As a general rule:

  • Don’t pay for the promise of a loan. It’s illegal for companies doing business by phone in the U.S. to promise you a loan and ask you to pay for it before they deliver.
  • Requiring advance fees for loans also is illegal in Canada.
  • Ignore any ad — or hang up on any caller — that guarantees a loan in exchange for a fee in advance.
  • Remember that legitimate lenders never guarantee or say that you will receive a loan before you apply, or before they have checked out your credit status or contacted your references, especially if you have bad credit or no credit record.
  • Don’t give your credit card, bank account, or Social Security number on the telephone, by fax, or via the Internet unless you are familiar with the company and know why the information is necessary.
  • Don’t make a payment to an individual for a loan; no legitimate lending organization would make such a request.
  • Don’t wire money or send money orders for a loan through Western Union or similar companies. You have little recourse if there’s a problem with a wire transaction. Legitimate lenders don’t pressure you to wire funds.
