  • Consumers are complaining to the BBB alleging Eastview Lending is offering loans but charging upfront fees to release the money. Multiple consumers tell the BBB that they applied for loans through Eastview Lending and are told by company representatives that they are approved for the loan. However, the consumers say they are also told they must first pay an advance fee. The explanation for this fee varies - generally the first three months payment for the loan or a down payment to secure the loan. Many of those consumers charged an advance fee say that after they paid the original fee (usually around $484 transmitted via Western Union to Ontario, Canada), Eastview representatives then request another fee for what they call insurance - ranging from $750 to $1500 dollars. Consumers that contact Eastview Lending to request a refund report that they are told they will receive their money back, but after time passes, the fees paid are not returned. Other consumers are unable to reach the business to request a refund.

    Despite multiple attempts, BBB has been unable to contact this business regarding their business practices and advertising. Mail has been returned to the BBB as undeliverable. The website has been suspended and telephone number is a constant busy signal.

Products & Services
Consumers are reporting to the BBB that this company is requesting an upfront fee for loans they are applying for. The New York State Attorney General says that it's illegal for companies doing business by phone to promise you a loan and ask you to pay for it before they deliver. Advance Fees for a loan are illegal -- ignore any offer that guarantees you a loan for a fee paid in advance. Legitimate lenders never "guarantee" or say that you will receive a loan before you apply, especially if you have a damaged credit history or no credit record at all.

If you have credit or debt problems or concerns about your personal finances, you may want to contact your local non-profit credit counseling agency for assistance. To do so, contact the National Foundation for Consumer Credit at (800) 388-2227 or www.nfcc.org or the Association of Independent Consumer Credit Counseling Agencies at (703) 934-6118 or www.aiccca.org.
