I recently got involved with a company called Cashpoint Financial Trust. The website is cashpointfinancialtrust.com. I applied on the website for a $10,000 personal loan. A month later a rep. contacted me back and said I was approved for the loan but needed to send 3 months security deposit in and after processing I could have the money in 2 to 3 hours wired into my account. I sent the money by way of western union which was $812.49 plus Western Union Fees. Then the original rep dissappeared and someone else took over saying that he had made a mistake and that it is 6 months security instead. The remaining balance would be $808.00, which I refused to send over that and she told me they would only require half of it now and the rest would have to be paid in full 48 hours from when the loan was received. I was very hesitant to send it in but after thinking on it a couple of days I sent in the $404.00 plus a rush processing fee of $65.00 plus Western Union Fees. That was on Monday and it is now Friday and of course I can't get in touch with these people, so now over $1300 may be down the drain. Has anyone else had dealings with this Company? And please tell what's my best course of action against them? Thank You!!

I just fell victum to this also. This is their website. http://www.newportlenders.net/ But they are based out of the US Or at least thats what their website says. It all looks good. What I want to know is how can you tell when a site like this wrong. Also I am wondering. Has anyone ever heard of a loan that you need to pay upfront for colateral that isn't a fraud?

looked at the website and first i noticed no phone number.
next, no security for the registration form. should be https://
usually means its a crooked operation, because they don't care if your personal info gets stolen and they would have to identify themselves to get a security certificate. they claim to be located in Kansas but the registrant claims to live in Indiana

Registrant:
SHAWN HADLEY
40 SE 11TH STREET
WASHINGTON, Indiana 47501
United States

google for the Kansas address leads me to believe its just a rented mailbox not an office.

next, before you do business with any unknown ask them where their business is registered -

Example - i wanna be Bozo's Lawn Care
so people are going to write checks to Bozo's Lawn Care.
i need an account to deposit these checks or else they are just wallpaper.
no bank will not give me an account till i register as Doing Business Under Assumed Name AKA Ficticious Name.
if i am just local guy, sole proprietor, i would pay a fee and identify myself at my county courthouse. if i wanna be state wide or multi-state, i would pay a fee and register with the secretary of state.
every business has some sort of registration. and money lenders may have more regulations to comply with. if they cannot tell you the real name of the company, its real location, where its owner(s) filed, then avoid it. its a scam. no business ever uses Western Union or Moneygram for customer payments, that's always a scam. its the same as if they told you to put cash in an envelope and send it.

The site looks fishy to me. I've posted it on aa419.org for the bank sharks to have a look at it.

Online loan scam reports prompt warning from BBB




The Wisconsin Better Business Bureau is issuing a nationwide alert regarding a company that alleges to be located in Milwaukee and has scammed consumers out of more than $15,000.



The Wisconsin BBB has received six complaints in less than a week against an online loan company called Intrest Plus Financial (please note: the spelling of the word “interest” is correct and not a typo).



These complaints allege that Intrest Plus Financial approved a loan for the applicants, but required a “collateral payment” be wired to a Canadian address via MoneyGram. In some cases, applicants were coerced into sending a second payment after being told that their loans had been “reassessed.”



None of the complainants have received their loans. Amounts lost range from $1,570 to $3,760. Victims have come from Colorado, Illinois, North Carolina, California and Nevada. All of the complainants applied for their loans online.



Intrest Plus Financial is using an address of 1208 W. Layton Ave., Suite 213 in Milwaukee. That address is home to a legitimate company, which is NOT affiliated with this scam. In addition, Intrest Plus Financial is not licensed in the state of Wisconsin, according to the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions.



The Wisconsin Better Business Bureau, which recently named advanced fee loans as the state’s worst scam in 2006, offers the following points to keep in mind before you respond to ads that promise easy credit, regardless of your credit history:




Legitimate lenders never “guarantee” or say that you are likely to get a loan or a credit card before you apply, especially if you have bad credit, no credit, or a bankruptcy.




Be wary of searching the Internet using such terms as “bad credit loans,” which may lead you to fraudulent Web sites. Look for the BBB’s online reliability seal, which can help you weed out the good Web sites from the bad ones.




If you apply for a real estate loan, it is accepted and common practice for lenders to request payment for a credit report or appraisal. However, legitimate lenders never ask you to pay for processing your application or for a “collateral” payment.




Never give your credit card account number, bank account information or Social Security number over the telephone or Internet unless you are familiar with the company and know why the information is necessary.




If you don’t have the offer in hand — or confirmed in writing — and you are asked to pay, don’t do it. It’s fraud and it’s against the law.



For more information or further inquiries, contact the Wisconsin Better Business Bureau at 1-800-273-1002.
