  • Based on a review of information in our files, BBB believes this company is a fraudulent entity which attempts to use threats and coercion to collect money from people who have taken out or even simply looked into taking out an online payday loan. Consumers report this company has been abusive and threatened to sue them and report them to the FBI and other authorities.

    When you're contacted by a debt collector, BBB recommends that you:

    -Know your rights. Review the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), which sets standards for collection agencies and prohibits abusive tactics. http://business.ftc.gov/documents/fair-debt-collection-practices-act.

    The FDCPA is enforced by the FTC and violations should be reported. Debt collectors:
    * Cannot threaten you with arrest.
    * Are not allowed to make idle threats, express or implied, or use abusive language.
    * Should not discuss consumers' accounts with unauthorized third parties.
    * Must investigate the validity of a dispute over a debt.

    -Verify the legitimacy. Get the debt collector's name as well as the name of their company to research the collection agency further. See if they have a website or a Business Review at bbb.org.

    -Verify that the representative who called is affiliated with the collection agency. Also, make sure the company is licensed to do business in your state. In Minnesota, collection agencies have to be licensed by the Minnesota Department of Commerce; in North Dakota by the Department of Financial Institutions.

    -Request written proof. By law, a collection agency must provide a validation notice within five days of contacting you about the debt. Within 30 days of receiving their validation notice, send the debt collector a written request to verify the details of the debt.

    -Do not provide personal or financial information until the validity of the debt and the debt collector has been confirmed. If the debt cannot be verified or if requested documentation isn't provided, be extremely wary.
    BBB is unaware of any legitimate organization called United Legal Investigation Bureau. BBB also does not have a valid address on file for this entity.
